DEI madness and murderous Gen Z hysteria

In the video below, Danica de Giorgio laughs at lefties in meltdown, but the more important points are about the delusional out-of-control hysteria of Gen Z girls, the incitement to violence, and the madness of slotting women into positions of security and safety to satisfy irrational quota targets.

It’s no wonder that ordinary Americans are getting behind Trump who sees this madness as clearly as they do.

We need a Trump revolution in Australia to deal with exactly the same destructive processes.

‘Sky News host Danica De Giorgio has reacted to “demented, deranged and deluded” lefties having a meltdown on social media following a failed assassination attempt on former US president Donald Trump.’

Trump attempted Assassination – what did you expect?

Donald Trump has been followed by shrieking deranged hatred ever since he announced he would enter the contest to become the US President. There has not been a greater example of incitement to kill a politician than the unending incitement to eliminate Trump. Examples are in the Paul Joseph Watson’s video below.

The video shows another frightening example of DEI policy – the irrational application of quotas. Regardless of ability and suitability, feminists insist on putting women into positions of safety and security. We’re just waiting for a major catastrophe resulting from the forced employment of incompetent women.

Reconciliation Australia’s Two-Faced Activism

Joe Stella, Quadrant, 27 May 2024

Every year, Reconciliation Australia Limited (RAL) marks the period between the anniversaries of the 1967 referendum (May 217) and the Mabo judgment (June 3) as National Reconciliation Week. Last year, the theme was “Be a Voice for generations”, a reference to the looming referendum. This year’s theme, “Now more than ever”, reflects the organisation’s unprocessed shock and denial at the result. According to RAL, “as a nation we stumbled” but “the fight” must continue.

Really? RAL has now been operating for 23 years, more than twice as long as the statutory Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation that preceded it. As I have argued in a new paper for Close the Gap Research, “surely so emphatic a defeat of what advocates called ‘an act of reconciliation’ demands an objective assessment of the continued viability of that process.”

That assessment must begin with a difficult and still largely unexplored question: Is reconciliation what Aborigines actually want? In an address delivered during the last Reconciliation Week, ‘Yes’ campaigner Megan Davis cast serious doubt on this. During consultations in the lead-up to the 2017 Uluru Statement, she told a Townsville audience, “our old people kept saying, unsolicited and organically, that reconciliation was the wrong process, that reconciliation was the wrong word.”

We do not know how many of these “old people” there were, much less whether they represent a significant body of opinion among Aborigines. However, Davis’ comments are helpful because they at least acknowledge the diprotodon in the room. Reconciliation has always been promoted as a means to cement national unity. As such, it is inimical to a radical Aboriginal rights agenda centred on the indicia of a separate race-based nationhood: sovereignty, self-determination, international recognition, treaties, embassies and so on.

The Uluru Statement endorses the Aboriginal nationalist program first developed by the National Aboriginal Conference between 1979 and 1981. This includes Aboriginal sovereignty, a treaty (makarrata), reparations and recognition of customary law. The Voice to Parliament, the brainchild of non-Aboriginal academic Shireen Morris, was a novel addition. As later accounts of the convention that produced the Uluru Statement demonstrate, a treaty was the top priority for many delegates. They needed to be persuaded that the Voice was a necessary preliminary measure. This tension is reflected in the final text of the Statement, which characterises a treaty as “the culmination of our agenda”.

Weak stomachs should avoid unpleasant work

Yesterday, the government funded ABC reported the reaction of unnamed people in Victoria’s justice department to a police presentation on Victoria’s gangs. The report was headed:

Victoria Police presentation on youth crime criticised for ‘racist’ focus on ‘African gangs’

‘The presentation,’ the ABC reporter wrote, ‘followed a three-day conference on gangs which had attracted law enforcement officers from America, England, Italy and New Zealand. Dozens of public servants from the Department of Justice and some from the premier’s department had been invited to take part.’

The unnamed people are ostensibly professionals in the area of juvenile violence. Sadly, their reaction, fulsomely described by the indignant female reporters, showed they were not suited to making dispassionate judgments on the (very) serious subject of youth and gang violence.

Here is a selection of the complaints made by the so-called professionals:

The presentation was ‘racist’ and focused on ‘African gangs’ …

‘The language, tone, and imagery … was very racist …

‘Attendees complained they should have been warned beforehand they would see “someone get stabbed to death”.’

Some staff were “disturbed”, “upset” and “extremely affected”.

The graphic content was “gratuitous”.

One attendee wondered about the “Unclear purpose of showing [this] video.”

The accusation of racism arose because of the graphic footage of African and South Sudanese gangs in action.

My advice to the unnamed fragile staff in Victoria’s justice department is that if they haven’t the stomach to face the reality of gang violence and the reality of the specific groups involved, they should get out of the department and find work more conducive to their precarious emotional makeup – and stop taking up wasted space.

The Greatest Lie Ever Told: ‘George Floyd’ & The Rise Of ‘BLM’ 

Last January I posted a comment about the George Floyd and BLM incident that unleashed a leftist mania worldwide: George Floyd and BLM – All Based on Lies. There has hardly been an incident that Marxists have so gloriously exploited. Millions went into the pockets of a handful of Marxists who now enjoy the benefits of their windfall – and have a big laugh at how easy the shake-down was.

Today I am posting Candace Owens’ video demonstrating again how successful the BLM Marxists were in exploiting the death of an habitual criminal and drug addict and sending an innocent policeman to a lengthy term in jail who was just doing his job. The George Floyd and the BLM mania is emblematic of the decay in Western Civilization.

TRANSGENDERISM: AN INTOLERANT GODLESS RELIGION

February 4, 2024

Helen Joyce’s book TRANS: WHEN IDEOLOGY MEETS REALITY is not before is time. She discusses the detail with Henrik Beckhein.

*****

Helen Joyce: Trans is a godless neo-religion. Gender identity, ideology and drag show story hour.

How gender identity conquered the world and what it means for women, children, gay people and the sporting community

‘There are few subjects which need treatment that is at once delicate, thoughtful and brave. Helen Joyce manages all of these things in Trans. Anyone looking to understand this most fraught of issues should start here.’ Douglas Murray, author of The Madness of Crowds

Gender identity ideology is about more than twitter storms and using the right pronouns. In just ten years, laws, company policies, school and university curricula, sport, medical protocols, and the media have been reshaped to privilege self-declared gender identity over biological sex.

People are being shamed and silenced for attempting to understand the consequences of redefining ‘man’ and ‘woman’. While compassion for transgender lives is well-intentioned, it is stifling much-needed inquiry into the significance of our bodies, particularly with regard to women’s rights, fairness in sport, same sex attraction and children’s development.

If we recommit to our liberal values of freedom of belief, freedom of speech and robust debate, we stand a chance of addressing what is at stake.

Ever heard of ESG?

David Penberthy Herald Sun February 24, 2024

As another millionaire CEO loses his job over another PR disaster, maybe it’s time sanctimonious corporations resorted to honesty. There was an interview in last month’s Qantas inflight magazine with the chief executive of the mining giant Rio Tinto. Rio Tinto you will recall is the company which landed itself in deep strife when it emerged in 2020 that it had blown up two 46,000 year-old Aboriginal caves in Western Australia to access $135 million worth of iron ore.

The revelation was pivotal in the departure of former CEO Jean-Sebastien Jacques and his replacement with new boss Jakob Stausholm, the subject of the profile piece in the Qantas mag.

In that article, Stausholm talked about how he has always placed himself at the vanguard of what’s known in business circles as ESG, which stands for environmental, social, governance. ESG is basically the progressive corporate checklist covering everything from carbon emissions and reconciliation to gender equality and LGBTQI friendliness, against which “enlightened” modern corporations assess their conduct as good corporate citizens.

ESG strikes a delicate and often unsuccessful balance between doing the right thing, and coming across as preachy and sanctimonious.

It creates a real risk that companies can be seen as straying from their day jobs.

And it can also set them up for accusations of hypocrisy, as was the case last year when Rio Tinto took time out from its once-hectic schedule blowing up indigenous sacred sites to campaign for a Yes vote at last year’s referendum.

This is an insurgent war

There is an insurgency underway in Australia – an attempted political and cultural coup. It is conducted by a small group of insurgent thugs. And they are getting away with it. Those responsible for defending Australia against the insurgent forces do nothing. They are doing nothing because they are either colluding with the insurgents or are too gutless to do anything about it. Either way, the insurgency calls for a response.

Most Australians are sick to death of having reinvented ceremonies forced upon on them. We are sick to death of having an animist religion forced on us. We are sick to death of large tracts of land being given away to people who have a claim based on race – often a ludicrous claim by those indistinguishable from the average Australian. It has to stop.

The Age has today reported yet another declaration of war by the insurgents who in the dark of night – where they belong – have brought down another statue of Captain Cook. They used an angle grinder to saw it off at its ankles. The report provides a video of the insurgents at work. This is how confident they are in their work of insurgency – confident nobody will act. They left their usual message:

‘THE COLONY WILL FALL’

It hardly needs saying. There is no colony. There is a nation that had its origin in January 1788. The new nation extinguished whatever society was before it, as primitive as it was. All those who now receive its benefits tacitly assent to its laws and government. A nation has a right to defend itself against attempts to destroy it. These are notion civilized people have agreed to through the centuries.

Let the insurgents know that Australia will fall over the dead bodies of a multitude of Australians if it comes to that.

The warning is there.

Cooks’ Cottage statue toppled in latest attack on Melbourne monuments

By Alex Crowe, The Age, February 27, 2024

A bronze statue of Captain James Cook has been hacked off its plinth in a Melbourne park, prompting a police investigation.

The sculpture of the British explorer at Cooks’ Cottage in East Melbourne’s Fitzroy Gardens was cut off between 5pm on Sunday and 7am on Monday, causing it to fall to the ground.

A video posted to an anonymous social media account shows masked vandals using an angle grinder to saw the statue off at its ankles, before pushing it over.

The words “the colony will fall” were painted beside the fallen statue, according to the account.

“Yet another monument to the imperialist James Cook has been felled in so-called Melbourne. Rumour has it that this was the last remaining Cook statue in the city,” the post on Instagram says.

“Monuments such as this only serve to prop up the narrative that enables so-called Australia’s continuing theft and desecration of land and life, and to legitimise its ongoing violence.

“This narrative is as hollow as a monument to a long dead coloniser who met his just fate, being speared by first nations warriors in Hawaii.”

According to the Captain Cook Society, the statue was sculpted by Marc Clark in 1973, and was owned privately before it was gifted to the City of Melbourne in 1996. The sculpture was moved into the garden at Cooks’ Cottage the following year.

Built in 1755, Cooks’ Cottage was the Yorkshire home of Captain Cook’s parents, with the two-storey brick house and its adjoining stable taken apart and shipped from England to be rebuilt in Melbourne. The attraction was publicly opened in 1934.

The targeting of Cook’s statues follows similar incidents in Melbourne on the eve of Australia Day.

Recommended books

Socially and politically oriented Youtube channels often interview authors of books that have captured the reading public’s attention.

The books below attracted my attention because they give powerful arguments and evidence against the Woke class’s condemnation of Western Civilization.

The final two by Timothy Gordon and his wife, Stephanie, are so ‘out there’ on the fringes for most conservatives that they will not consider them. The books, however, restate age-old beliefs about men’s natural leadership and women’s role as organizer of the domestic sphere.

I intend to add to the list whenever I come across book of similar interest.
