The extreme left have prevailed in Wentworth

The voters of the federal seat of Wentworth have elected lesbian and climate-change activist Kerryn Phelps to take the place of Malcolm Turnbull in the federal parliament. When you consider Turnbull’s contemptible betrayal of the Liberal Party, confirming what we conservatives always thought of him, Phelps is an appropriate substitute.

As expected, the cry has gone up from pretend Liberals like John Hewson to drag the party back from the extreme right. The electorate has sent the Liberal Party a message, they say. The leftist media (the Fairfax and Guardian newspapers, and the green-left ABC) have begun recycling the call. There has been a clear message from the Wentworth results, though, and it’s not Hewson’s.

That message is, first, the former Liberal blue-ribbon seat of Wentworth has gone green-left feral and, second, the Liberal Party must work all the harder to protect its conservative character to deal with the befouling and degradation of Australian culture and society it suffers from the green-left coalition of the Greens and the Labor Party. It has to scrape off the debilitating leftist barnacles that have clung to it over the years. They have to tell people like John Hewson and Amanda Vanstone to shut up and get lost. Mealy-mouth approaches to the subversives are chicken-hearted and achieve nothing.

Educational pluralism and sphere sovereignty

During the seven-decade political struggle in the Netherlands to allow parents to select schools corresponding to their religious convictions, Abraham Kuyper articulated a concept of “sphere sovereignty” that translates, in policy terms, into principled structural pluralism. That Dutch experience, and its resolution in the “Pacification” of 1917, is highly relevant for the present situation in the United States: popular revulsion against the condescension and intolerance of a liberal elite toward the values and interests of many of their fellow-citizens, leading to deep political and social as well as cultural divides…read on

Massive Communist infiltration of the Catholic Church in the 1930s

Catholic abuse crisis is likely no accident, but a strategy to ‘destroy Church from within’

The shocking accusation by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò that Pope Francis helped cover up sexual misconduct — an accusation the Pope has so far declined to answer — as well as the litany of sexual abuse cases among clerics, force any Catholic to ask the question: how could this possibly take place in the moral institution that is the Roman Catholic Church?

One possible — little known, but very important — answer dates back to the Bolsheviks and their Communist leader Joseph Stalin.

Recently, I came across a video on Youtube of a presentation by former Soviet KGB propagandist Yuri Bezmenov, aka Tomas Schuman, who worked for the Soviet Union’s Novosti Press Agency until he defected in 1970. In this 1983 video, he claimed that the West was slowly being subverted into Marxism by the methods of “ideological subversion,” a form of warfare the KGB used against America…read on

 

Understanding Islam IX – Can the West rediscover its core?

UNDERSTANDING ISLAM IX
Grasping the Nettle Part 1
THE WEST CAN IT REDISCOVER ITS CORE?
By Paul Stenhouse MSC

MUCH IS made of the potential for global economic and social unrest from the millions of desperate refugees flowing into Europe from war-ravaged Syria, Iraq, the Horn of Africa, Central Africa and Afghanistan [2016].

This is the same Europe of which Pope John-Paul II wrote in 2003: ‘European culture gives the impression of “silent apostasy,” on the part of people who have all that they need, and who live as if God does not exist’.[1]

Many if not most of the refugees are Muslim, and the countries they are fleeing – along with much of the Islamic and Arab world – are infested with Islamic radicals, fundamentalists and extremists who have declared a holy war on the West.

Thomas Jefferson and academic freedom

Thomas Jefferson’s Conception of ‘Academic Freedom’ and Its Current Condition in American Higher Education

Garrett Ward Sheldon
The John Morton Beaty Professor of Political and Social Sciences, The University of Virginia’s College at Wise.

‘Here we are not afraid to follow the truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate any error, so long as reason is left free to combat it.’ -Thomas Jefferson

THOMAS JEFFERSON’S CONCEPTION OF ‘Academic Freedom’ became the standard of modern intellectual progress in America and the world. Its components of both individual freedom of inquiry in expression and debate along with lively, free and tolerant academic community were seen as essential to all other forms of progress: political, economic, social and ethical. This Jeffersonian ideal of Academic Freedom in the university and all its positive effects on the rest of American Society has come under assault throughout history from religious bigotry, social intolerance, and political ideology, most recently from the federal government’s expansion of the Title IX law during the past six years. It almost destroyed university knowledge and learning, the lively academic community as well as their attendant social and personal benefits. Continue reading “Thomas Jefferson and academic freedom”

Understanding Islam VIII: Islam and the West

UNDERSTANDING ISLAM VIII

At the beginning of the fifth century, two hundred years before Muhammad appeared, there were seven-hundred Catholic bishops in North Africa. Two-hundred of them attended the Council of Carthage in 535 AD. By the middle of900 AD there were forty left. By 1050 AD, there were only five left. In 1076 AD there were two.

ISLAM AND THE WEST

The first five hundred years

By Paul Stenhouse MSC PhD

Professor John Esposito, Founding Director of the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Centre for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University, USA, would have it that ‘five centuries of peaceful co-existence’ between Muslims and Christians were brought to an end by ‘political events and an imperialpapal power play,’ that was to lead to a ‘centuries-long series of so-called holy-wars that pitted Christendom against Islam, and left an enduring legacy of misunderstanding and mistrust.[1] Continue reading “Understanding Islam VIII: Islam and the West”

Understanding Islam VII – Filling in the background

UNDERSTANDING ISLAM VII
When Damascus opened its gates to the Muslim army of Abu ‘Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrdh in 635 AD, three years after the death of Muhammad, its citizens little dreamt what a force they would eventually unleash upon themselves and their city – and indirectly upon the world that we have inherited from them.

This is the seventh in a series of eight articles by Fr Paul Stenhouse MSC PhD

THE TRAGIC random murder on October 2 2015, of an innocent employee of the NSW Police based in Parramatta New South Wales, at the hands of a 15-year-old Muslim boy has shocked Australia. The Iranian-born boy of Iraqi Kurdish origin, who had seemingly been influenced by as yet unidentified Islamic extremists, died in an exchange of gunfire with police. He was evidently seeking death under the delusion that this would make him a martyr, and redound to the glory of Islam.

Mr Curtis Cheng, the innocent victim of this tragic murder, was one of countless millions who over the centuries have died at the hands of fanatics who have modelled themselves, or been modelled by others, on the life and example of Muhammad as described in Islam’s sacred books and traditions.

Indigenous ABC comedy clip parodies white people

It’s no surprise that the Australian Broadcasting Corporation has broken barriers in the far-left war on Australians.

The ABC has released a comedy segment showing a group of Aborigines parodying a breakfast talk show by saying that “white people are c…s”.

The explicit clip was produced by the team behind the ABC’s Black Comedy program, and hosted on an ABC indigenous Facebook page, where it ­attracted mostly positive comments.

In the parody, indigenous comedian and writer Nakkiah Lui plays the host of an inane breakfast show called “Wake Up to Yourself”, joined by a panel of three indigenous experts and commentators.

“Earlier this week, beloved Aboriginal man Uncle Stevie in a press conference referred to white people as white c…s,” she says in the clip, in which the swear word is bleeped out. “This has sparked outrage in the white community, with many calling for the removal of his uncle ­status and a public apology.”

The first panellist replies: “I know a lot of white people. Warm, kind white people. And I say this with a lot of love, but white people are c…s.”

“I wouldn’t use words as strong as that, but I tend to agree. White people are c…s,” the second panellist says.

“Well, I’ve never actually met a white person, but I do agree. White people? They’re c…s,” ­responds the third. Read on…

Wake Up To Yourself.
