George Colombaris was charged for a less violent reaction than Andrew Bolt’s. Police and all Security advice is  to remove yourself from the situation. Yes Bolt was glittered however he attacked and did everything opposite to what is advised he attacked violently. Moreover he’s now proud of what he did and is celebrating his reaction. Police are investigating the incident. (Olddogthought)

Study Proves Prejudice Linked With Low IQ – Counter Current News

Does you intelligence level effect your level of prejudice? A recent study by Mark Brandt and Jarret Crawford looked to answer just that, and the results will not make racists very happy. As Medical Daily via Rawstory reports: According to the study, people of lower intelligence, as measured by cognitive ability, tend to be prejudiced against non-conventional or liberal groups, as well as groups that have little choice in their status, such as people defined by their race, gender, or sexual orientation. On the other hand, individuals of higher intelligence were likely to be prejudiced against groups considered conventional and groups perceived to have “high choice” in their associations, such as conservatives. “People dislike people who are different from them,” study authors Mark Brandt and Jarret Crawford told Broadly. “Derogating people with different worldviews can help people maintain the validity of their own world view.” People of all levels of intelligence seem to have the same level of prejudices, just toward different groups. The reason for these differences in stereotypes, however, is more complicated than simply not liking those who are different from you. For example, the researchers explained that less intelligent people often like to view other groups as being distinctly different from them as a way to help see them as distant and therefore less of a threat. On a positive note, a separate study found that prejudice against transgender individuals, and be resolved in most  with a simple 10-minute conversation with a transgendered individual. Could the answer really be that simple? Prejudice can be destroyed by 10 minutes of interaction with the perceived “other”? The science seems to back this obvious answer! Are you surprised? What does it say then that the supreme court ruled police can refuse to hire applicants with “too high” of an IQ? Could this be the reason police are so often accused of racism? Let us know and help SPREAD THE WORD! (Article by Jaimes Campbell and M.

Hate Speech Is Not Free Speech! Cory Bernardi conveniently the preconditions of Fraternite and Egalite that need to accompany any notion of Free Speech. Free Speech in an unequal society only serves the rich and political class

hate sppech

Written by:

After proposing then abandoning a raft of manifestly unpopular changes to section 18c of Australia’s racial vilification laws last year, certain members of the LNP have recently relaunched their attack on 18C, under the rather disingenuous pretext of championing free speech.

In the wake of the Charlie Hedbo attacks Cory Bernardi has been out there again, calling for the LNP’s precious 18c amendments to be put back on the table.

Like pit bulls with lock jaw, a gang radical right wing MP’s including Cory Bernardi, George Brandis, Dean Smith, liberal Democrat David Leyonhjelm, and Family First’s Bob Day have been lobbying hard to ensure we Aussies have the right to engage in hate speech.

cory-bernardi-the-conservative-revolution

Just for clarity, lets take a closer look at what it is they want to change. Specifically they want to have the words “offend, insult and humiliate” removed from the act.

RACIAL DISCRIMINATION ACT 1975 – SECT 18C

Offensive behaviour because of race, colour or national or ethnic origin

(1)  It is unlawful for a person to do an act, otherwise than in private, if:

(a)  the act is reasonably likely, in all the circumstances, to offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate another person or a group of people; and

(b)  the act is done because of the race, colour or national or ethnic origin of the other person or of some or all of the people in the group.

So in effect what they are proposing is that it would just fine to PUBLICLY “offend, insult and humiliate” someone based on their race, colour or national or ethnic origin, so long as you don’t “intimidate” them.

I think it’s fairly safe to say that most people would find public insult and humiliation somewhat intimidating; so we can assume that the interpretation to be given to the word “intimidate” under the proposed amendments would be “to directly physically threaten”, rather than “to emotionally threaten”.

If these changes were ushered in, then it theoretically it would be OK if I were to call Tony Abbott filthy, unwashed, lazy, whinging, snaggle toothed, imperialist, stuck up, limey British scum? And that would be totally OK, because I am all I am doing is using racial stereotypes to abuse him, but I am not actually threatening to do him any harm. Of course the truth is that most British people work hard, wash regularly, visit dentists, aren’t seeking to expand their empire, and complain in relatively appropriate measure..:-), but hey why let the truth get in the way of good story.

wp-egg

Unfortunately what these right wing warriors are failing to understand is that the Racial Discrimination Act is not really about protecting the feelings of “white people”. It was drafted in the knowledge that there are ethnic groups in this country that really suffer as a result of constant racial abuse and the negative stereo types that such abuse fosters.

no racist

To our shame there are many Australians, (most notedly our indigenous brothers and sisters, followed closely by those of African or “middle eastern appearance”) that regularly suffer systemic discrimination in housing and employment on the basis of their race. They are the same Australians that regularly suffer physical abuse in public spaces, and higher rates of detention and incarceration on account of their race. So please let’s not minimise this, these are real consequences, for real people!

Free speech is a noble ideal, but in order for something to be truly free it must come without a cost. Just because hate mongers like Andrew Bolt, Alan Jones and the oh so white fleet of right wing MP’s don’t personally pay the price for their racist tirades doesn’t mean someone isn’t picking up the tab. And too frequently those picking up the tab are the among the poorest and most marginalised members of our Australian family.

andrew-bolt-2

If you happen to belong to one of those oft targeted minorities the Racial Discrimination Act may not offer a lot of protection, but it is the thin end of a very important wedge. It is a line in the sand that says NO, we as Australians do NOT want a society where racial vilification and negative racial stereotypes are permitted to fester and stew in the public sphere. We want an Australia that says racists need to be ashamed, knowing that they are on the wrong side of what is morally decent, and on the wrong side of the law. We want an Australia where vile hate speech does land Andrew Bolt in court and up on charges. Mostly we want an Australia that is for the fair go for everyone regardless of race, colour or creed.

AFL call out

So Mr Bernadi, I say this to you on behalf of all decent, fair minded Australian’s….. GET BACK IN YOUR BOX!!!, we don’t want the hate you are peddling!!!

“Have Yourself A Merry Little Drone Strike” Andrew Bolt is the bastard son of General Ripper and never listens to what Pakistani officials might have to say about provoking revenge attacks

drone1

Have yourself a merry little drone strike, let your heart be light

From now on our victims will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little drone strike, make the Yuletide gay

From now on our pilots will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days, happy golden days of gore

Faithful rebels who were dear to us, are not near to us anymore

Through the years we all will be together, if the courts allow

Hang a bloody corpse upon the highest bough

And have yourself a merry little drone strike now

ISLAMABAD-As Christmas Day approaches and millions of Americans are celebrating the birth of Christ by purchasing presents from Walmart, our military marked the occasion by obliterating a few suspected militants in Yemen and North Waziristan. Although administration officials declined comment on the strikes, we managed to reach General Jack Ripper USAF (Ret) for his thoughts on the matter.

Iraqi Freedom

“It has become a sort of Christmas tradition,” said General Ripper. “The holidays are the perfect time to hit the enemy because we can target weddings and other gatherings during the slow news cycle back home. Most Americans are more concerned with the mythical “War on Christmas” than with innocent people being vaporized in the name of democracy. Drone strikes are great because they are the most cost-effective way to provoke the locals and swell the ranks of our terrorist opponents. If we face growing numbers of terrorists then it is much easier to justify a bloated defense budget and intrusive information-gathering programs.”

jackdripper

General Ripper continued, “These savages living in mud huts thousands of miles away constitute a clear and present danger to our way of life and our republic, and the startling truth is that there are at least a few dozen of them. Furthermore, these guys are believed to be the masterminds behind the evil worldwide plot to sap and impurify our precious bodily fluids,” said Ripper. “Our nation is a righteous one founded on Christian principles, chosen by God and Jesus to lead the free world, and if we have to blow up the rest of the globe to prove it, then by God that’s what we’re gonna do!” General Ripper had to end our phone interview at that point because it was time for the night nurse to distribute medication.

Pakistani and Yemeni government officials have protested the drone strikes as being counter-productive, saying they serve only to provoke lunatic religious fanatics. They have advised citizens living in tribal areas that during traditional infidel holidays a trip to a large town may be in order, and all New Year’s Eve celebrations should be held in caves deep underground.

Rubio Pledges To Stamp Out Progress “Wherever It Rears Its Ugly Head” Posted in politics, religion. This dude seems he could run Australia with the support of Andrew Bolt wh sure is tiring of Tony Abbott

marco-rubio-vp

THE CABIN ANTHRAX, MURPHY, N.C. (CT&P) -At a hurriedly called press conference somewhere in the bowels of Cretonia earlier today, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), a Catholic, criticized Pope Francis after the pontiff played a key role in helping the United States and Cuba forge an agreement that resulted in the release of American Alan Gross from Cuba.

Rubio said he would “ask His Holiness to take up the cause of freedom and democracy.”

The pompous ass junior senator from Cretonia who intends to school His Holiness was speaking in response to the White House’s announcement about talks to normalize relations with Cuba after a nearly 50-year embargo with the country.

Marco Rubio (R-Buffoon):: Obstructionist Republican Clown

The pope played a pivotal role through personal appeals to President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro to help the two countries forge an agreement for the release of Gross, Obama announced on Wednesday.

Rubio is set to play a major role in Cuba policy as the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee on Western Affairs, and he noted Wednesday some of Congress’ leverage points, such as funding for embassies and nomination of a U.S. ambassador to Cuba.

“I’m committed to doing everything I can to unravel as many of these changes as possible,” Rubio said.

When asked just what the hell he was talking about, Rubio replied “As I have said many times before, I’m no scientist and usually have no fucking clue what I’m talking about, regardless of the subject. However, for decades now our policy concerning Cuba has been held hostage by a tiny minority living in and around Miami. I see no reason to make any changes to that policy at this time. Cuban ex pats and their offspring make up an important voting bloc for us Republicans, to say nothing of their generous donations to our campaigns. I’m certainly not going to let them down by agreeing to a policy that could be good for the U.S. and Cuba as well.”

Rubio continued, “As a Republican I am against all forms of progress and change, and I will do my best to stamp out any change I see in any policy regarding anything at all.”

When asked to clarify his comments regarding the Pope Rubio said “This Pope is far too compassionate and helpful to be an ally of the Republican Party. They really need to get someone with experience in that position.”

Breaking ranks: Hockey, Bishop,Turnbull and Morrison were all over ambitious according to Andrew Bolt and needed to be put in their place. This always occurred when attention was drifting away from Abbott. Bolt always knows “the Facts” better than any ministers and will tell them so. He also is a braggard.

Fox News Pundits Outraged Over New Legislation: Bolt’s no-news head office demands equality for Nazis

Foxnazi-300x284

THE CABIN ANTHRAX, MURPHY, N.C. (CT&P) – Fox News anchors and pundits reacted angrily to the recent passage of H.R. 5739, or the “No Social Security for Nazis Act,” which sailed through the House and Senate with unanimous votes last week. The bill was an attempt to close a loophole that has been around for decades which allowed former Nazis to receive Social Security benefits.

horseass2

Bill O’Reilly called the act an “absolute outrage,” and Sean Hannity told his dozens of viewers that the act was “just another example of President Obama taking matters into his own hands and acting like a king” by pushing the “prejudiced and racist” legislation through Congress.

It seems that after World War II the U.S. government offered many ex-Nazis social security benefits as long as they agreed to move and live outside the U.S. on a permanent basis. Many ex-Nazis took the deal and have been living in countries all over the world for years while receiving taxpayer money courtesy of the State Department.

The bill was obviously very popular with legislators as no one wanted to be seen as supporting retired concentration camp guards and members of the Waffen SS.

However, the bill will also have the effect of denying benefits to any current Nazi Party members, which includes up to 90% of Fox News’ on air talent.

hannitynazi

Fox News CEO Roger Ailes told Reuters that the legislation was almost surely unconstitutional.

“We at Fox believe that denying a minority group social security benefits simply because of their beliefs or form of employment is un-American and undermines the foundations of this great country,” said Ailes. “There is nothing we can do about this legislation, but I firmly believe that the broad masses of a population are more amenable to the appeal of rhetoric than to any other force. Therefore in the long run we will prevail and reverse this miscarriage of justice.”

Ailes went on to say that he believed that “through the clever and constant use of propaganda, the American people would be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched form of life as paradise.”

Ailes also said that he would like to see the United States annex the Sudetenland sometime early next year.
