Virginia the snob suffers a microaggression

Grossly overpaid ABC broadcaster and virtue-signalling snob Virginia Trioli has written a piece for the ABC website discussing a ‘microaggression’ she recently suffered.  What happened was (trigger warning!)….. a man asked her out for coffee. 

Yep, she really wrote this, the ABC really thought it was breaking news, and she really thinks she’s been aggrieved. What is even sadder is that all her friends in the little exclusive self congratulatory overpaid circle at the ABC also agree with this, and they all think they too are victims.  We have now hit peak woke.

(Perhaps this man could be arrested, and imprisoned?  The same way they got David Leyonhjelm and ruined his life for committing speech (and likely thought) crime (and Virginia was one of his outraged prosecutors/interrogators) this man that made the insulting coffee invitation could be prosecuted.  (If it turns out he’s physically unattractive, they could add extra to the punishment)).

We can add this to all the other feminist propaganda now pushed, in virtually every story by ABC/Fairfax.  Notably, that all criticism of women is ‘misogyny’; that Grace Tame and Brittany Higgins are secular saints who must be endlessly discussed, the recent fairfax article that said when women attack men (or kill their own families) its because they are mentally ill, (whereas if men commit violence its based on males inherent misogyny and mental health is never an excuse). The ‘pay gap’ (which, awkwardly, disappears when you adjust for part time and stage of career) is real;  oh, and we need new ‘coercive control’ laws which designate any disagreement or refusal to give people money as ‘domestic violence’ (I thought violence had to involve, violence, but nope, not in ABC/Fairfax feminist world).

The other issue here is that this ‘piece’ is being run on the ABC ‘News’ site.  Previously, many years ago, news was about, well, news. Actual events that occurred. Now its all about introspection and personal stories by the extremely overpaid and privileged ‘lifers’ at the ABC. The ABC literally has a ‘content tracker’ which filters and censors all stories to promote indigenous (sorry, ‘first nations’) stories, feminism, diversity etc etc etc.   Its also particularly notable how the press gallery are obsessed with stories that occur in their own precious little bubble- the Brittany Higgins story (the only story pretty much reported on out of Canberra for the past year) etc etc.

Australia is collapsing. We are a total plutocracy now, all income growth goes to the rich, wages are falling, our standard of living is through the floor, our health system is a joke. There are no jobs. And we are not allowed to discuss any of that. We get a choice of ABC/Fairfax, where every story is woke and nothing else or Murdoch media, which isn’t woke, but supports tax cuts for the rich, plutocracy etc etc. When will we have a media that discusses real issues?


St Brittany and St Grace must be endlessly discussed

The media are, as predicted, going crazy over Grace Tame and Britanny Higgins. There is no discussion of anything else. No discussion of the economy, tax, the environment, nothing. Just Saint Grace and Saint Brittany.

Its worthwhile to ask, therefore, what exactly is it they want?
With Grace Tame, her abuser was punished and locked up before the media frenzy. Laws were changed (which had originally been passed by feminists anyway) to allow her to speak out. Should there be more funding of s-x assault/ domestic violence services? Its hard to imagine that, given the billions and billions and billions already thrown at it in funding all over Australia. Make the laws tougher? Its also difficult to understand how many more offences could be created (remembering, of course, that the offender in Grace Tames’ case, was, in fact, locked up). More awareness? S-x Assault/Domestic violence (outside of the aboriginal complaint industry) is the most discussed/advertised topic in Australia (in fact, these topics are pretty much all the media, notably ABC/Fairfax, write about).

Grace Tame’s main demand (as granted by the press gallery), is that she be permanently discussed. Articles (such as the one you’re reading now) are not allowed. She must give press conferences and be given unlimited media attention (with no other topics to be mentioned), otherwise thats’ misogyny. And all sides of the media will give it to her.

Brittany Higgins is also a secular saint who must not be questioned. We must not question the massive employment of staffers, who largely appear to be young, attractive people, who dont seem to do much for their bloated, taxpayer funded salaries. Again, its not clear exactly what any of us must do in regard to her, apart from giving her unlimited media attention (also noting she’s signed a recent, very lucrative, book deal). Any discussion of anything but her or St Grace, is, of course, misogyny.

The media are now set for the upcoming election. It will feature nothing. Nobody’s pointed out the awkward fact that there are no policy differences between the two parties. When nothing is at stake, then what is the point of all the coverage? The media don’t want to talk about policies (this may raise awkward questions of the collapse of the Australian economy, plutocracy etc etc).

ABC/Fairfax etc will focus exclusively, of course, on woke topics like St Grace and St Brittany, the aboriginal complaint industry (sorry, ‘first nations’) etc etc. The Murdoch media will engage in the theatre of opposing woke, and both sides will secretly celebrate the fact they’ve made the election, and public debate, about nothing.


Stories the media missed

Here are some stories our pathetic press gallery haven’t bothered to report on. This is because we only get two choices in Australia- the woke bullshit on the ABC, where every second story is a diversity one, or something about ‘first nations’ etc etc (but nothing about the economy or the real world, because ABC journalists support plutocracy and just do the woke bullshit to virtue signal on the surface) or Sky news, which, while admittedly not woke, is also full of shit and openly supports plutocracy, miners paying no tax etc etc.  Both branches of the media, while getting into fake debates with each other about woke bullshit (the republic, gay marriage etc etc) are really on the same side, (in the actual, real, financial world) and both cheer on unlimited immigration to destroy wages.

The stories the media in Australia missed:

  • Miners were undertaxed by sixty billion dollars (yes, billion with a ‘b’) in Western Australia, and the treasurer who did it went straight off to work for them.  Naturally, the press gallery ignored this, and focused on the distracting woke topic (as pushed by the miners PR agents) that he was the first indigenous mining director etc etc. Pity about the missing sixty billion, but hey, that’s a story in the real world, so not to be discussed.
  • Australia’s natural gas is being given away for nothing. About forty billion a year is being taken out of treasury and the ruling party in Australia has been bribed to say nothing about it. The extractors pay no tax, and never will, and after the initial build, will employ virtually nobody. Forty billion divided by the 25 million people of Australia means we’re all worse off by $1,600 per year, dwarfing any other form of fraud, however, its forty billion real dollars, so no discussion by the media.
  • The latest tax cuts proposed by the Morrison government, universally supported by the media and the labor opposition, will massively and disproportionately go to the rich; people on more than 180k a year, which is really rare in Australia. 
  • There are no ‘skills shortages’ and never have been, such arguments always and everywhere are used to push up unlimited visa migration.

Australia has now transitioned from a country which had some (not much) redistribution of wealth, to the reverse- the rich are taxed nothing and in fact are granted a larger share of wealth (through corruption, monopolies like mining royalties etc) every year by the state.  Its poorer and middle taxpayers who are now forced to pay for virtually everything, the collapsing health system, defence etc etc. We are an open plutocracy- the public education and health systems have become a joke in our lifetimes. The media never report on this – they are either cheering it on (at News Corp) or distracting us with woke rubbish (ABC/SBS/Fairfax).

There are a few honorable exceptions to the above, notably MacroBusiness, Ian Verrender at the ABC and Grogonomics (except for immigration, where he has swallowed the kool aid). Emma Alberici also tried to raise the alarm about tax at the ABC. But other than that, there’s no discussion.
