what the experts say about our nazi problem: ImageImageImage
what the hard right factional heavyweight and Morrison protege, insufferable Alex Hawke, says about our nazi problem: Image
how ninefax reported our nazi problem as horse race bothsides bullshit, a media practice that is well known to enable and legitimise far right extremists: Image
you know, like members of the right-wing Morrison government do. Image
full article here. Contains the usual journalistic error of ignoring the fact that the right-wing Morrison government is not the solution but part of the problem. As are other right-wing politicians whose voters Morrison assiduously courts.…
entirely consistent with their known and knowable ideological beliefs, the right-wing Morrison government is using the pandemic to attack people they hate, like PAYE workers, and give succour (and lots of our money) to their mates, like nazis and CEOs.
all with noisy cover from the Canberra Press Gallery. I say this often because it can not be overstated: anyone who perceives Scott Morrison as being of the political centre, like many CPG journalists do, is themselves sitting well down the right wing end of the spectrum.

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are no fax columnist Jennifer Hewitt, and politics editors at the ABC and murdoch press, Andrew Probyn and Samantha Maiden. The interview is with ALP deputy Richard Marles.
opening spiel: a covid turning point. Should we stay with hotel quarantine given more virulent strains? National leadership is wanting (“bipartisanship is breaking down”). #Insiders
the extremely convenient and very false narrative about Morrison “struggling to rein in” his hard right colleague Craig Kelly is repeated by Speers.

*Reminder that spreading disinformation on fb is core Liberal Party strategy, not some side show. #Insiders

changing the subject, if anyone has a must-read recommendation on justice by Blak women, Black women, Indigenous women and/or women of colour, please drop me a line in replies or DMs ty!
literally changing a subject, in an LLM program. Opeds and literary mags eg Overland, Meanjin okay too. Some readings already added: Alison Whittaker on one-punch laws as white patriarchal rights; Dr Watego on Blak Matter with bonus Birdz track, Amanda Porter on night patrol.
there will definitely be a piece from brilliant writer Tabitha Lean oh and Prof Irene Watson and Dr Ambelin Kwaymullina are on the list too.

regular reminder that adult males like Morrison who deliberately cause immeasurable harm are not babies, toddlers, children, adolescents or in their mothers care. They are ADULT MALES. The MOST DANGEROUS AND HARMFUL DEMOGRAPHIC GROUP IN THE WORLD.
get a fucking grip on how patriarchy works and stop deflecting these shitcan adult males onto us and our kids to insult them. Fuck.
nobody, nobody on this earth, least of all CHILDREN, causes the kind of damage that adult males inflict. Think. And stop blaming mothers for patriarchal violence.

the catastrophic economic management we should expect from a government that is deeply committed to enriching rentseekers and impoverishing workers.…
it is government policy to steal from workers and give to bosses. The Liberals are the party of business and the Nationals are a single-industry party for fossil fuel corporations. And lie about it. Image
the government will stick with its catastrophic fiscal policies and lie about the results - with full, evidence-based confidence that all major media outlets will disseminate the lies to voters on their behalf. Image

lmao Greg Hunt announces that the government “quietly, behind the scenes” secured vaccine doses - live on camera to the nations press.
the meta-Morrison campaign comms, now spinning their own strategy of repeatedly announcing announcements.
asked about net zero emissions, Morrison takes credit for “strong household take-up of solar” like the grifting grifter he is.

the government put $200 billion in Australians pockets so that money needs to be spent to create jobs because the money belongs in Australians pockets.
This man purports to have some kind of economics degree.
short courses. Roads. “Investing and partnering and technology”.
This is what passes for Liberal and National Party vision.
Morrison just claimed credit for lower emissions during a global pandemic and closed borders to his government.
