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?
