Jenna Price on Jennifer Hawkins and Trump is silly and sad

The relentless right-on campaign to slime Donald Trump is just jaw-dropping, innit? Leftie feminists in particular are desperately trying to portray every little bit of news about him as confirming their Eeeevil Misogynist White Male Oppressor  narrative.

Latest to do so is our own Jenna Price in a surreal gargle about former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins. In it, she spins a benign little public interchange between mogul and stunna as some sorta sinister humiliation!

I feel sorry for people like Ms Price. They see male violence, bigotry and brutality all over the place, mostly where it just doesn't exist. But then when there is true, in yer face misogyny they say nothing or even defend it. Really, what's more oppressive to a woman, being lauded as an icon of beauty all over the globe and being handed mountains of cash for the privilege, or being forced to wear a bloody burka? FFS.

Now, I can see how some people might think that Ms Hawkins is being "objectified" by Trump. But that's her choice. She's playing a role, sure. She knows that. We all do.

A beauty pageant may be many things. But it's certainly not misogynous. If anything it's about worshipping women. It's men's (and women's) way of saying: "Hey! Chicks rock because they're total spunks! Check out these babes. They are truly awesome!"

Like all forms of entertainment, it shouldn't be taken too seriously. (Same is true of comedy. Comics are now so terrified of offending snowflakes that they all now engage in, er, routine self-censorship.)

As well as the sheer joylessness Price exudes, there's her evidently low opinion of the woman in question, Jennifer Hawkins. By characterising these moments where she yucked it up with The Donald as something chillingly vile, she implies that Hawkins is too dippy to even know she's being brutalized. Patronising (sorry, matronising) or what!

Actually this determination to paint the Trump-Hawkins dynamic as completely imbalanced and unhealthy has been widespread in the MSM. No wonder Ms Hawkins has kept comparatively silent on the issue.

I don't claim to have any special insight into their relationship, of course. But I suspect she quite likes the guy. He has been extremely helpful to her career after all. Take this quote for example:

Earlier this year, Hawkins described Trump as a wonderful family man. "I don't think a lot of people know or see that but he just loves his kids," she told Fairfax Media reporter Jenna Clarke.

As well as implying that she has genuine liking for him, it also says something about Trump's personality that debunks the widely held stereotype of him as a malignant narcissist. After all it's well established that those with NPD have poor relationships with their often dysfunctional kids, who usually permanently move as far away from them as possible at the first opportunity. This is definitely not the case with Trump whose offspring are highly competent and successful people who maintain close contact with their father and are very publicly supportive of him.

Ballina shark huggers hurting the NSW surf town's economy

A few years ago when I was living in Perth that city's coastline seemed to be the world's most dangerous when it came to shark attacks. These days West Australian waters are still risky. But Noah Central now appears to be Ballina, not all that far north of Sydney, where I now reside. There have been 12 attacks there, one fatal, in the last coupla years alone!

Sheesh! Maybe I've got something to do with it?

Has Gaia been reading this blog and upon seeing all the anti-green rants decided to launch a program of intimidation against me? Well, if that is the case the tactic is definitely working. There's no way I'm gonna take a dip at any beach in this state unless I know it's got a bloody great shark net protecting it.

That's because I know that these work. They're installed at the main metropolitan beaches and there hasn't been a fatal attack here for yonks. And that's not just because there are no sharks here, either. Hell, if there are heaps of hangry white pointers prowling off the beaches of Ballina, there's gotta be many down here, too. Sydney beaches are absolutely chockas with swimmers and surfers, too, remember.

But they don't have the nets at Ballina, in major part because of the concerted campaign by shark huggers there. Because of the clear and present danger the number of surfers out in the line up there has plummeted, as has the turnover for local surf shops.

Thankfully, it looks like the NSW Govt has seen sense and there are now plans to install nets in the area. Not surprisingly, local moonbats are outraged at this violation of animal rights (completely ignoring the fundamental human right to go for a surf without getting your legs bitten off, natch). Today, they lobbed for a group shriek and wail at Lighthouse Beach. This barmy event included what was described as a "turtle release" (which I suspect is like letting doves fly at a wedding, only waaay slower).

And, in this case it only involved one of the marine reptiles. Name was Kimba, which is an odd moniker for a reptile. (And it could also be an act of cultural appropriation. White lions have rights too, you know -- even if they are cartoons.)

After an extended stay in human hands (which could also be seen as incarceration) Kimba has been set free again. And how did he survive all this time? Well, here's his (benign) jailer on his stay in (politically correct) captivity:

Ms Southwell hopes that Kimba will be released to an ocean with enough fish to support his diet, as he has quite the appetite.

"He's eaten us out of house and home,” she said.

Fish. Exactly. And sharks are -- you guessed it -- fish. So if it's okay to kill little ones in this case (let alone eating them yourself, which I suspect the Southwells do anyway) then why such outrage over some big ones buying the farm?

And while I'm sure Kimba himself was charming company, he is still just a reptile.

Just goes to show how petty and incoherent the anti-shark net campaign is. It looks completely ridiculous, dunnit -- particularly when there are human lives at, er, steak.

Grace Collier triggers Q and A lefties with common sense suggestion

As I've mentioned a coupla times before on this blog, I'm a refugee from Artsville, Orstraya. I was surrounded for years and years by sundry deranged lefties, and somehow managed to maintain my sanity.

Nowadays I can look at that toxic environment with some detachment. And I pity the poor little poppets, I really do. They have been swallowed up by something truly ugly: cultural Marxism. But they think they've got it all sussed. It's hilarious ... and sad.

One characteristic of this collective mental illness (and that's not too strong a term) is a complete aversion to common sense.

This was on display on last night's Q and A. I didn't watch it, but apparently Grace Collier triggered some of the lefties in the audience big time by saying something perfectly reasonable: If you don't have a job, start a business. They actually started heckling her!

Amazing, innit? All Grace was saying was, hey there's nothing stopping you. Why not give it a burl? You can be your own boss, you know ...

Now, I can understand why some might disagree with the suggestion on the grounds that doing such a thing is a lot harder than it sounds. But how could any sane adult find it offensive -- and so offensive that the speaker must be shouted down.

That's what's interesting to me -- the fact that these socialist snowflakes just can't bear to hear this kind of talk. And I think it's because they've been so brainwashed into seeing themselves as victims with no agency that it threatens their very sense of who they are.

It's like the reaction you get when you say to a feminist frightbat: "Hey toots, actually you're not a victim at all. Go and live your life. Be free! Hell you are free, already ... Sure, it's not a perfect world. But you've got it better than just about anyone, babe. So stop whining, eh?"

If they haven't exploded in a massive foam-flecked tanty, and can actually string a few words together they'll come up with reasons for why they're not free. They'll blurt "the patriarchy, rape culture, institutionalized misogyny", etc -- all utter bollocks, of course.

Lefties have such a horrible existence, don't they! They spend their entire lives telling themselves why they can't do stuff, and why other people (whom they absolutely loathe, BTW) must do it for them. How long is that gonna work for, particularly if the whole society is built around this view (which is their ultimate goal, let's face it)? You don't have to be a friggin' rocket scientist to realize that it's a bad strategy; that's it's unsustainable.

Hell, these pinko parasites want the money that business creates. But they say they can't start one themselves. Well, if they can't, with all their fancy uni education and everything, who the fark can?

Really, would be great if even just one of them broke with tradition and actually took Ms Collier's sane advice to do something they're good at and charge a quid for it.

Sure, they only truly excel at being obnoxious, shouty arsehats. Still, there must be a market for this somewhere ...

One Nation keeps rising in popularity. Donald Trump a factor?

Interesting that there's been a big boost in the popularity of Pauline Hanson's One Nation party recently. And she's eating into the LNP's support base. It's really quite amazing.

Newspoll surveys since the July 2 federal election reveal support for One Nation in lower house seats has climbed to six per cent, up from 1.3 per cent on polling day.

In Queensland the minor party is attracting 10 per cent of voters, up from 5.5 per cent in July. In NSW and Western Australia, One Nation's support is six per cent.

Over the same period support for the coalition has dropped 3.1 per cent to 39 per cent, while Labor's vote has increased 1.3 per cent to 37 per cent.

Needless to say, a party's popularity is in a constant state of flux. Still, these are big shifts, and you've gotta wonder what's behind them -- particularly since there haven't been any huge developments in Australian politics lately. Frankly, I think the upcoming election in America has something to do with these rises.

Of course that's just a hunch. But I think a lot of Aussies are watching this epic battle between Trump and Clinton very closely. They're seeing how massively corrupt the whole political establishment is over there -- not to mention the MSM. They can see that Trump is bang on the money when he says the whole system is rigged, and they know it's a lot like that down here.

So, they're feeling a greater level of support for Hanson, who, like Trump is definitely a political outsider -- a kind of "anti-politician" who calls it as she sees it.

Obviously there are other, more powerful local factors at play. Still, I think this has quite a bit to do with it ... What do you reckon?

Flood of false Trump groping claims reminiscent of Gillard's misogyny speech

It's often said that whatever crazy stuff happens over in the good ol' USA will be replicated here in Oz eventually. We follow, not lead -- particularly when it comes to culture and politics. This has definitely been the case with political correctness. It gathered up a head of steam in America in the nineties, and now there's a full blown reaction against it, embodied most powerfully in the rise of Donald Trump.

We're still catching up Down Under. Sure, we've got Pauline Hanson, but she's a marginal force, not leader of one of the big two parties. The one major leader who did react strongly against PC was Tony Abbott, and he was knifed by his own party. So it seems that the discontent has a fair way to go before it reaches current American levels.

But there's one episode that occurred during Abbott's reign as opposition leader that actually kinda pre-empted what's going on in America now. That was when Julia Gillard delivered her seminal (or should that be ovarian?) misogyny speech in an attack on Tony Abbott.

The frightbats were all aflutter about this, triumphantly declaring that she was speaking feminist truth to patriarchal power. But any sane adult with one eye half open could tell it was just a cynical ploy to neutralize the fallout from the controversy embroiling the Speaker of the House.

Gillard was utterly brazen in falsely sliming Abbott (at one point for looking at his watch!) to keep the heat off Peter Slipper, whom she had installed! And why was he in hot water? Well in part because of sexually oriented texts that he'd sent to a staffer, some of which included undeniably misogynous imagery.

The way she totally ignored this highly relevant fact -- followed almost unanimously by the shamelessly pro-Gillard mainstream media -- was jaw-dropping.

Fast forward to the USA, late 2016. Right now we've got a concerted, round the clock campaign to slime a presidential candidate as a serial groper and harasser. New "victims" pop up almost hourly. Their wild claims are published uncritically by huge MSM outfits like the New York Times. Soon afterwards they are revealed to be hoaxes.

Now, this all out campaign to destroy Trump would be bad enough if its prime architects -- the Clintons -- were just garden variety scumbags. But it's well established that Bill himself was a serial groper, and almost certainly a rapist as well. And rather than being some kind of innocent bystander to this carnage, Hillary did all she could to destroy his victims' reputations -- even threatening at least one of them in subtle but nonetheless crystal clear terms.

The hypocrisy is epic. It just makes you wanna hurl. And the fact that the MSM are totally okay with this tactic and are even enthusiastically playing their part in it is deeply sinister. Just as the Hildebeest trashed the reputations of her predator hubby's victims, massive news organizations are actively painting Trump as someone like him! And they are doing it to distract from the damage to Hillary's campaign caused by relentless Wikileaks revelations -- dozens of which show Watergate-scale corruption -- which they should all be investigating fearlessly.

So, in terms of dirty gender politics, it's like Gillard pointing the figure at Abbott, but magnified a hundred times.

Makes you wonder if she had anything to do with it ... Did Hillary call Julia for tactical advice, I wonder?

NSW MPs label Trump a "revolting slug", leave snail trail of rank hypocrisy

Trump Derangement Syndrome is afflicting liberals all over America, of course. But it's caught on big time down here, too, with plenty of Aussies launching into hysterical fits of lefteous indignation about The Donald, making complete idiots of themselves in the process. Take the entire NSW Parliament, for example:

New South Wales Parliament has formally branded US presidential candidate Donald Trump a "revolting slug" who is unfit for office.

Greens MP Jeremy Buckingham tabled a motion on the business paper slamming the Republican, which passed unopposed this morning.

The pettiness and puerility is almost unbelievable, innit? Even obnoxious uni student politicians would generally avoid such childish shenanigans.

And we're paying these arsehats! They should be thoughtfully dealing with issues affecting citizens of New South Wales, not indulging in a collective fit of virtue signalling about a figure on the other side of the world.

Not surprising that a Greens MP tabled it. They all suffer from arrested development, after all. And their entire MO is to endlessly hurl abuse at their political opponents, falsely calling them racist, sexist and all the rest of it.

But it's also pretty funny that Jeremy Buckingham has used "slug" as if it were an insult. Remember that the Greens claim to be champions of all creatures great and small, including the spineless and slimy ones. Speciesist, much?

And speaking of invertebrates: Buckingham's workplace is chockas with 'em! Why, only this week the Baird government backed down on its stupid decision to nuke the entire greyhound industry because they realized the voters were filthy mad about it and would likely punt them come election time. Now, they'll prolly still lose because they've shown themselves to lack the courage of their convictions.

Then there's the fact that Buckingham's asinine motion was passed unopposed. You'd think there'd be at least a bit of resistance to it -- on the grounds of its obvious and embarrassing puerility, if nothing else. But clearly no one in the chamber had the spine to do even that.

Gawd. What a bunch of jellybacks.

The malevolent molluscs must leave a snail trail wider than a Clover Moore bike lane as they sleaze and slime their way through Parliament House each day.

And if Trump wins come November? Well, the putrid goo they exude will be doubly viscous on account of the albumen from the eggs dripping from their stunned mullet faces.

I certainly do hope this will be the outcome -- although I do pity the poor janitors who will have to clean the stinking mess up.

Kristin Lajeunesse cares more about seeming virtuous than animal welfare

Vegan vlogger Kristin Lajeunesse couldn't cope with how livestock were being transported in New Zealand. Very strange. Did she think that they were treated better back in the USA, where she's from?

Her overly emotional reaction is typical of the green left. They seem to care more about the plight of animals (and even bloody plants!) than people ...

Or maybe it's not that at all. Perhaps it's that they care more about themselves, and the way they are perceived by their peers, than anything else.

Interesting that she made a video of herself sooking up and shared it on social media. She was saying, "Look at moi. Look at how much I care!"

If you perceive it this way it becomes clear that those poor herbivores didn't really matter to her. They were just bit players in the passion play she was performing for the camera.

But these child-brained narcissists do this all the time, don't they? They wring their hands about how mankind treats animals, saying that we're no better than those "non-human persons". So, if we're no better than them, why not condemn animals for treating each other badly -- which they do all the time, clearly.

If Kristin Lajeunesse saw the wild in the same way she saw those Kiwi trucks, then she'd be posting videos of her meltdowns while hiking in the forest, wouldn't she?

That would still be extremely daft. But at least it would be consistent.
