Appalled and offended that she's been mocked by Tim Blair for a grotesquely self-indulgent anti-Abbott rant in which she included details about her late father's unseemly behaviour while he was unemployed, she tweeted this to one of her fellow sneering hipsters.
OMG! The insult to my *dead father* actually was published by THE DAILY TELEGRAPH. My god! What is this?! pic.twitter.com/odHnuZtGK1It's called a fair crack, Vanessa.

It could also be said that using your dad's death to score cheap points against your main political hate figure constitutes an insult to his memory. We've all got dead relatives and loved ones. But only the most shameless and selfish use their deaths to slime those they detest -- and so soon after their passing. (It's not unlike Bolt-obsessed bloviator Mike Carlton and others like him using the death of Nelson Mandela to slime conservatives.)
Then there's the sheer irony of the potty-mouthed termagant demanding that everyone bow in sympathy to her fine feelings and respect her in her grief. Just take a look at the petulant princess's Twitter stream and you'll see what I mean. You'll be picking your jaw up off the floor.
She's gotta be one of the most abusive lefties on the site -- and that's saying something. She goes out of her way to provoke and offend people, verballing them at every opportunity.
Is it because she's as batshit insane as she appears to be, or is it just a cynical ploy? Maybe even a bit of both ...
She's certainly cottoned onto the fact that to carve a niche in the the leftoid media too much vile abuse is just never enough. As well as endless adulation from absolute idiots, there are well-paying meeja gigs and grants galore to be had if you can out-crazy your fellow feminist moonbats. To the "victim" the spoils!
Vanessa Badham is what I call a blushing violent. Vicious, aggressive, happy to make the most vile and knowingly false accusations when it suits. Then at other times when it suits she hides behind her gender, and plays victim. It's an amazingly cynical tactic. And sooo typical of the primitive, vindictive, cowardly Left.
My advice to the spoiled brat: Listen, baby cakes, if you don't wanna be mocked because you're still grieving then don't put that sensitive info into the public realm -- let alone for the purpose of a mean-spirited sliming.
Frankly petal, your feelings aren't that important. You show no respect for the feelings of others, so why should they respect yours? You were askin' for it.
Nice one mate. About time someone called this duplicitous Daddy's little princess out. And those like her.ReplyDelete
If she was a bloke you'd call her a wanker. As she is allegedly female I'll defer to someone more qualified for the appropriate label.ReplyDelete
I am not necessarily qualified but your description seems perfectly apt. Just run with it.Delete
That's pretty sexist David. Women make perfectly good wankers.Delete
Sorry about that Nonny. You are absolutely right. :-)Delete
Wanker would be appropriate. But termagant, princess, petal...??Delete
Are you actually going for Sexist of the Day award?
Van Badham (amazing name!) deserves some criticism. But these names - nope, don't make a good impression on me at all.
Good call Matt. The whole thrown toasty incident was what you expect from a privileged white women desperate to be able to find a way to be classed a victim.ReplyDelete
Yes, presenting herself as the wronged one in every situation is her favourite tactic. She's taken it to an almost zen-like level!Delete
She must learn the difference between "being wronged" and being WRONG" . One of them she has down pat, the other not so much as far as I can tell ;-)Delete
Excellent call, Matt, and the best retort yet. Blair should quote you!ReplyDelete
I had to look up "termagant". My new favorite word, thanks!ReplyDelete
No worries. I'm also quite fond of gorgon, harpy and banshee ... not to mention succubus.Delete
All four of those can be found in the World of Warcraft. Along with female orcs, trolls, ogres, demons, forsaken, dragons... she'd fit right in.Delete
Sadly, she is all too typical of a certain type of feminist. And I was right about the daddy issues.ReplyDelete
Yes, there are many other women like her. It's quite depressing.Delete
While they are intensely annoying, they are also very sad. They've confused petty viciousness against those too meek or polite to bite back with empowerment. They think of themselves as sassy, feisty fighters, but they're basically just professional nags.
Hey, if all else fails they can always cry about it and then ask a chivalrous man to beat the insulting guy up on their behalf.Delete
Typical low class-Socialist; drag the cheap coat tails of tacky public mourning for bad form reasons, then loudly wail when they are rightfully stomped on by everyone who calls her bluff. A boganReplyDelete
Not unlike the bogan queen herself, Julia Gillard.Delete
Oh Good one!ReplyDelete
All I wanted to say but was too ladylike to commit to paper, well done Matt!
Nicely said. They can hand it out but don't like being on the receiving end.ReplyDelete
Van Badham is a typical leftie who has to rely on personal abuse in lieu of an ability to write logical, cogent, rational criticisms of her "opponents". She sees reality through the prism of the far-left mindset. On the bell curve of rationality she lies in the three standard deviation band on the negative side. Similarly when it comes to emotional intelligence.ReplyDelete
True, she strikes me as having a very low "EQ". That's ironic considering her experience as a playwright.Delete
I've never seen or read any of her plays, but considering how relentlessly abusive she is on social media etc, I'll bet they are just your typical tub-thumping fair. You know, primitive illustrations of the limitless compassion of salt of the earth lefties and the sadistic brutality of eeevil conservatives. No complex characters; just cardboard cut-outs.
"On the bell curve of rationality she lies in the three standard deviation band on the negative side"ReplyDelete
Gold Nonny, just Gold. I'll file that in my "do not forgettery' for future use - suitably acknowledging the source of course.
She has put in a rails run for worst post of 2013.ReplyDelete
Yes, the silly mare has.Delete
I guess it may be too high "EI" or "IQ" to highlight that the article, by "buying into her rant" is nothing more than the eloquent flip side of the same coin...ReplyDelete
Too hard to get?
Don't agree with the original blogger, but you & your cronies are way out of lineReplyDelete
Unattractive women, nowadays especially, are angry women. Instead of making the best of things and being nice, which would get them noticed, they simply get angry to get noticed. And to whom do they vent their anger, who else is there but men. Their narcissism has them emotionally crippled, and therefore incapable of improving themselves - too hard by far. So they take the easy option; have a cake and slag off the male gender and evil patriarchy.ReplyDelete
I just discovered this "novelist/ playwright" when I joined Twitter to have my two cents over the election.She is followed by Paul Keating, although judging by the paltry level of incisive wit to be found in his tweets, I suspect he has a ghost tweeter/ twitterer, in fact, judging by the asinine observations made therein, that may well be her.ReplyDelete
The sheer volume of her "theatrical output" I am certain is in converse proportion to the quality of it, and proves the great Polonius yet again correct. Wit being brief.
Summarising, I could not help but find the vulgarity of her attention seeking vitriol and lack of balanced insight another reason why I feel that all Fabian degenerates should be excommunicated from this plane of existence��
Boudiccanesque at large...
She proves Hoffer's maxim that "rudeness is a weak man's (or woman's) imitation of strength".ReplyDelete
I remember this woman at UOW, when also I was a student, seem to be that period of time, when people like this (mostly female but some men) had nothing better to do than whinge and rant. What I am more annoyed about is that she is born the same year as me. I did not indulge in the latte' lefty culture. I went to uni in the morning then went home and sat on a tractor cultivating the paddocks for the winter crop then would go back at 6.30 for the late lectures. I feel sorry for her.ReplyDelete
