Press Gallery’s sexism reaches toxic levels

Consider the below recent pieces, and just think for a moment what would happen had they been written by males about females:

  1. An article (by a former professional femocrat); insisting that all boys schools have female principals appointed. So, all female schools must have female principals, but now all male schools (and possibly mixed schools) also have to have female principals, (otherwise its sexist(!)). This is based on the nonsense meme pushed by Fairfax and the ABC that there is a ‘toxic culture’ at the private male schools.
  • A whinge piece in Fairfax about how nasty male readers are for disagreeing with political journalists such as Annabel Crabb.  Essentially, this piece is arguing that (a) males can never criticize females and (b) females are never unpleasant or nasty to males. An interesting viewpoint, which brings me to point three below:
  • a female writer on Crikey slagging men off for being ‘pale stale and male’ and, then telling men to simply ‘Shut.The.F-ck.Up’. (A male journalist had dared to write and question a few things about the Christian Porter issue)

If any – any-  of the above pieces had been written by men about women (ie demanding male principals for female schools or telling women to “shut.the.f-ck.up” because of their gender) it would be the end of the men’s career. They’d also likely be facing criminal charges under our draconian anti free speech laws. Instead this sexist garbage is celebrated and funded by our toxic media.

Its been two months now since the Canberra staffer matter and the Christian Porter affair hit the media.  The press gallery are still writing about this, this and nothing but this. There is no discussion of policy, of the economy, aged care, floods, natural disasters; nothing. 

Feminism was said to be a quest for equality. Its now far beyond that, into blaming all men for the actions of a few, quotas for women (for bludging-public-sector high paying jobs, not for ordinary ones) ; more media censorship including criminalizing any criticism of women by men (reverse is ok though), new ‘coercive control’ laws that define anyone disagreeing or not giving people money on demand as ‘domestic violence’ (I thought domestic violence had to have- you know- violence in it, but nope) more gender quotas at the ABC (as if it could get any more woke and diversity obsessed than it is now).

When will this toxic sexism stop?  


Exploiting an alleged crime to get what we want

Just a recap: there’s been an allegation of a terrible crime between staffers at Federal parliament.

Note that the action alleged is a crime, has always been a crime, and carries drastic penalties.

Despite the obvious fact that the behavior alleged is illegal, our feminist media (ie all of it), is pretending that somehow these actions are condoned (they are not) that therefore all men and society are guilty, and making the following demands:

  • More money (if its possible to spend more than the literally billions per year) to the domestic violence industry, more intervention orders (even though they are currently given out automatically to everyone who applies)
  • Stupid ‘coercive control’ laws which redefine people disagreeing or swearing at each other or not giving each other enough money as ‘domestic violence’.  By this definition, the feminists pushing this are now all domestic violence perpetrators. (I also thought domestic violence had to have, you know, violence in it; silly me).
  • Idiotic ‘reviews’ by grossly overpaid professional government femocrats about ‘changing the culture’ which really means lots of stupid guidelines about how nobody is to have an argument, and more overpaid government jobs reserved for women (not the lowly paid dangerous ones some men do- they are not interested in those).
  • No doubt an expensive ad campaign is in the works emphasizing how all men are guilty of everything.
  • An ‘office of respect’ to be staffed by unsackable female bureaucrats on 500k a year plus, issuing guidelines and pointless directives to justify their salaries. Any disagreements to be outlawed at the workplace- so that we can have public sector rules (where nobody can be sacked for anything and nobody does any work).
  • Any criticism of women by men to be criminalized and labelled ‘misogyny’ (as it already is now). (The reverse is ok though).
  • No more free speech for anyone. (But then again, we lost that years ago).

Every time a man commits a crime anywhere, all men are guilty, and the collective punishment has to be ratcheted up.  Anyone who criticizes the above madness is a misogynist.


Andrews govt cons media as usual

Well, they’ve done it again. The Andrews govt have shoved through the privatization of Vicroads (even earlier than I thought). Not only will you have to pay massive increased rego etc, but it also looks likely they will introduce road pricing- so that Transurban can now charge tolls on roads that were ours and we have already paid for through our taxes. Whats also interesting is the secretive process here, where there is no real public auction, just a super-quiet trade sale. I wonder why?

Naturally at the same time as this scam was being passed, the Andrews govt made sure to create a few media stunt distractions; idiotic ‘conversion laws’ that will never affect a single person in the state (nor will ever be invoked in litigation) and a bit of indigenous virtue signalling (making needless apologies to the neverending aboriginal complaint industry while making sure to get some good visuals for the nightly TV).

Of course, the media fell hook line and sinker for these ‘announceables’, barely scrutinizing (with a few notable exceptions) the outrageous VicRoads giveaway while giving saturation cover (and a few smug pointless OpEds) to the media stunts. Their gullibility is incredible.

The one off cash boost received by the crooks in the Andrews govt will be quickly wasted on bread and circuses to cover up the fact the state’s broke, and the voters will lap it up (for the few months it lasts). Its an incredible achievement, grab short term stamp duty cash in a population ponzi, flog off the monopoly port, set up a needless monopoly in PEXA, and the Land Titles Office (no more land security) and STILL almost immediately go bankrupt. Well, as long as the bloated parliamentary super gets paid and there’s a few overpaid jobs for mates, all is well.

Just enjoy paying $3,000 yearly rego. and tolls for roads that were already yours for the next 40 years- the media decided it wasn’t important- so it wasn’t!


The Press Gallery are useless

Canberra is the seat of power of the federal government in Australia.  The federal government has power over taxation, social security, defence, education,health, aged care (through the states) etc etc.

Media companies know this, and this is why there is an enormous and well equipped parliamentary press gallery, with camera operators, sound crew, everything. This press gallery never rest, pumping out thousands of stories, with one common element:

They are all crap.

The press gallery take all their energy and resources, and the fact they are formally accredited and given access by Parliament and write bullshit gossip about the Canberra bubble and that’s it. 

A few years ago, the press gallery, with a straight face, awarded its ‘scoop of the year’ award to a journalist who exposed the affair between Barnaby Joyce and his staffer. Yep, in all the issues of funding and legislation and environmental destruction and strikes and wages and states and governments, the press gallery thought the number one issue it had to deal with was a minister having an affair.

It’s the same now with all the media coverage regarding the allegations regarding staffers in Canberra. (Note – of course – if a crime’s been committed, let the police investigate, and let the law take its course).

To the press gallery, this story is the most transcendent, important issue ever to arise in this country. Because it happened in their workplace, in their little circle. And because the Press Gallery HATE writing about policies- (because when they write about real issues, it takes the focus off them, and their gossipy little world)- they will focus on this story, to the exclusion of everything else, for the rest of the year.

The Press Gallery are people who, if granted, access to ask questions at the Yalta conference, would pepper the leaders with ‘gotchas’ about their dress sense, or their feelings about the weather, or fights and scandals amongst the staff. Who cares about the future of post war Europe?! Thats boring!

Same with our press gallery here. Who cares about fires, taxes, social security, collapse of aged care etc etc?. That’s dull! What matters is what happens in our little bubble, amongst our little coterie of friends. That’s all, folks!

The ABC ‘news’ website is now unreadable, as every single story out of Canberra has to have a feminist angle (as does virtually every other story it carries).

The Canberra bubble is not an irrelevant prime ministerial insult (and the obvious bristling by the press gallery at this shows just how deep this description cut). The Bubble is real, and the Press Gallery’s simple inability to do their jobs and write about policy is a core reason Australia is becoming a joke, with skyrocketing corruption and pointless government waste and jobs for mates. Why oh why can’t we have a better press gallery?
