The bigotry genie

The extremely limited Treasurer,
Josh Frydenberg has tweeted the following:

“I’m deeply concerned about the
reports of children as young as 5 being attacked in schools because of their
Jewishness. It’s completely unacceptable in our civilised society & State

atrocities of the Holocaust.”1

The Australian Capital
Territory (ACT) has recently become the first jurisdiction in Australia to

I have had a go at the
vacuous nature of Amanda Vanstone’s Sydney Morning Herald diatribes before1,2,3,
and now she has come out with another, in which she has a go at Greta Thunberg.

One suspects that
Morrison went to visit the Mango Mussolini in Washington D.C. to get a few
pointers on how to lie to the gullible. Unfortunately, it hasn’t worked out
well for him. Firstly, his speech to a sparsely populated hall at the UN was
symptomatic of how this buffoon and the nation he represents, is perceived
around the world. His speech was replete with lies and half-truths which is

Economical with the truth

Julian
Porteous, the Catholic Archbishop of Hobart, has written an article in Murdoch’s
The Australian (where else?) entitled ‘Protect our religious freedom, for
goodness sake’1. He begins with an exposition of the history of the 1948
Universal Declaration of Human Rights and includes the content of Article 18 in
his essay2. This Article states: “Everyone has the right to freedom
