The latest #Auspol related social media meltdown is a case in point. In it, former Labor MP Gary Johns said this on The Bolt Report:
"Look, a lot of poor women in this country, a large proportion of whom are Aboriginal, are used as cash cows, right?" Mr Johns said. "They are kept pregnant and producing children for the cash. Now, that has to stop."
Needles to say, the usual suspects went batshit insane with rage on Twitter. (And considering how batshit insane they are already, that's saying something!)
Now, you may disagree with his analysis and think that it's simply not true that Aboriginal women are being abused in this way (presumably by their menfolk). However, given the extremely high rates of welfare dependence and the truly sickening levels of sexual and physical abuse that plague these communities it seems like a reasonable point.
Now, if he'd made it in a less colourful way it would have attracted condemnation from the Left. And knowing how self-indulgent and mean-spirited socialists tend to be, some of it would surely have been vindictive and personal.
But the thing that really set the leftist trollective off like fireworks on the 4th of July was his use of the term "cash cows". As we all know these child-brained purveyors of political corectness live their entire lives in a perpetual state of hair-trigger sanctimony. They are just hangin' out for even the flimsiest excuse to chuck a massive tanty that shows the world how much they abhor sexism, racism, etc. It's always all about them, you see.
Since "cow" is often used as a derogatory term for a woman, they piled on with false accusations of sexism, as well as racism. Intoxicated with lefteous indignation, they were in a state of billious bolshie bliss:
Why does Gary Johns get a platform to say anything? He and his racist misogyny need to fade into irrelevance. http://t.co/ye9HzbaU9d #auspol— Senthorun Raj (@senthorun) July 12, 2015
#WhitePrivilege in 1 Tweet How is this not racist hate speech? How dare they refer to #Aboriginal women as animals pic.twitter.com/sYIGr4Ac1U— Kon Karapanagiotidis (@Kon__K) July 12, 2015
To those in my TL telling me not racist to call #Aboriginal women "cash cows". Our country used to hunt Aboriginal people for sport.— Kon Karapanagiotidis (@Kon__K) July 12, 2015
#Racist moron Gary Johns should apologize for saying #Indigenous women are made to be cash cows by having children. #TheBoltReport #auspol— Stephanie Rice (@stephrice88) July 12, 2015
The uteruses of Aboriginal women are not the business of Gary Johns. He himself is an argument for contraception - http://t.co/xwiF387evL— Celeste Liddle (@Utopiana) July 12, 2015
And on and on it goes ...
The gruesome opportunists would rather fulminate over his use of a common figure of speech so as to advertise their own spurious moral virtue than actually engage with his argument. So childish, so petty, so leftist ... and so sad.
