The massacre at the al Noor mosque in Christchurch is one of the most vile and despicable acts we will ever witness.

The act itself is disgusting and is an affront to every decent person, but the fact is that it is possible to watch the massacre online.

We can actually ‘witness’ it as it was live streamed.

Thoughts and prayers are insufficient for the victims, but at times like this they are all strangers have to offer.

The consequences

has been grabbed by the left – before the bodies were even cold to club the right.

The left is using the massacre in three ways:

  1. To try to silence particular outlets, such as Sky News.
  2. To silence debate about issues, such as immigration.
  3. To blame the right (politicians and everyone else) for the murders.

Banning Milo

The rotten Milo Yiannopolous has been banned by the Australian Government from entering Australia due to his comments against Islam.

Attacks like this happen because the establishment panders to and mollycoddles extremist leftism and barbaric, alien religious cultures. Not when someone dares to point it out.”

Mr Yiannopoulos noted in the post that he rejected political violence.

Now is not the time for that, Milo.

But how is Milo today different from the Milo used a few weeks earlier to try to shame Dr Jordan Peterson in a pathetic Q&A gotcha?

Remember this?


Fraser Anning is a grub

This from Fraser Anning was beyond vile and will be his epitaph:

Using the tragedy to silence voices

The left is using the tragedy to censor voices they don’t like.

Eltham is a National Affairs Correspondent, New Matilda; arts journalist, Crikey; and lecturer at Monash University.

Osman Faruqi is an ABC journalist who last year won a defamation case against Mark Latham.

Sleeping Giants has weighed in. This is not about protecting Muslims from hate speech; this is about stopping debate about essential policies of national importance like immigration.

Trying to tar your opponents with the murderer’s victims

Adams has tried to hang this around the neck of Liberals:

This is appalling.

Tony Windsor is no better. He crafts the image of the straight-shooter. A country gent with a heart of gold.

He is a low life.

Marcia Langton’s response to Windsor is equally shameful.

And we can add Peter van Onselen to the shame file.

This man is a lecturer at a university.

The lack of logic in this tweet almost defines description.

Let’s see if it can be dumbed down so even PVO understands: the drownings stopped when the boats stopped. If you support policies which will bring back the boats (as Rudd did), then you are responsible.

There is a direct link.

If you can find me a statement from Abbott, Dutton, Craig Kelly, Pauline Hanson, even crap for brains Anning that encouraged the shooting on Friday then your statement is valid.

If your child attends a clss with PVO you should keep the receipt and get your money back.

Then he tried to explain what he said with this:

This is not just disingenuous, this is patently stupid.

People were drowning at sea (again) and the numbers were astronomical. Around 220,000 alone in October 2015.

They were creating their own humanitarian disaster at the port of landings and then had to be fed, housed etc.

There’s more … we expect nothing better from the rotten Tim Soutphommasane who has made his career searching for racism and creating division:

What remarkable about Soutphommasane, is that he finds racism everywhere.

Check this out from 19 February 2019.

What O’Sullivan said is actually correct … if you’ve ever watched a show about border security, it is people bringing foodstuffs into the country that pose a great risk to our biosecurity.

Nothing O’Sullivan said is racist.

The left eats its own

Chelsea  Clinton has been blamed because she’s called out anti-semitism

Chelsea Clinton (pregnant, BTW) has even been blamed. Esor Fasa, a student at NYU, confronted Chelsea. Fasa has since deleted her twitter account.

The video – until it gets deleted – is here:

Clinton was blamed because Clinton dared call out the anti-semitism of Ilhan Omar.

In case you don’t know, Omar is a freshman congresswoman from Minnesota.

She has consistently made and then apologised for antisemitic remarks. She doesn’t care. She hates Jews. She has a safe home in the Democratic Party.

Zali got in on the game (and probably shouldn’t have)

Desperate to get involved, Steggall got desperate.

This is both pathetic and sad at the same time.

A nation turned its eyes to Waleed …

And quoted his words back at him.

While it isn’t pretty, it is right to note that Waleed was more forgiving and less emotional when the victims weren’t from his mob.

For the record, the rat bastard murderer does not classify himself as right wing. Not that it matters.

What matters is that 50 people are dead as at 17 March 2019.

Just a reminder, these are some of the words after 9/11.

Fairfax columnist Peter FitzSimons, writing just a fortnight after the September 11 attacks a love letter to Osama bin Laden:

Hello. We are sorry. We are desperately sorry that the world has now moved to the point where it is on the edge of an abyss from which there can be no return. We accept that such hate as drove the planes into the World Trade Centre towers can only have come from incredible suffering, and we are desperately sorry for that suffering, even if we are yet to come to grips with its specific cause.

ABC host Virginia Trioli on the “realistic” way to respond to the 2001 Islamic attacks on September 11 by al Qaeda, led by Osama bin Laden:

What if that involved bringing him somewhere, absolutely safely, sitting down with him, treating him like a human being and talking about it, and then Osama bin Laden going home again, not bombing the hell out of bin Laden

Trioli on whether FBI was secretly involved in bringing down the World Trade Centre in the September 11 attacks:

I think it’s quite a possibility.

Professor Robert Manne, blaming “Islamophobia” on Pauline Hanson and not Islamic terrorists, September 2002:

The emergence of Islamophobia in Australia in recent times is not difficult to explain. The ground was prepared with the rightward drift in Australian political culture during the period of Hansonism… With the coincidence of the Tampa “crisis” and the September 11 terrorist attacks a dangerous explosion of anti-Islamic feeling took place.

Waleed Aly after the Boston bombing, April 2013:

terrorism is a perpetual irritant, and that while it is tragic and emotionally lacerating, it kills relatively few people and is not any kind of existential threat… They do not shock us. And for that reason, they cannot truly terrorise us.

Chinese interference

Another story from New Zealand that we need to pay attention too.

Until now, the United States and Australia have fretted over the possibility of China exerting influence through debt and construction in the region, but much less attention seems to have been paid to New Zealand amid increasing reports of espionage by Beijing.

But there are signs of divisions emerging within New Zealand’s coalition government over how to respond to claims of undue influence from its largest trading partner.

This week Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters told the media that laws dealing with foreign interference similar to those already enacted in Australia are being considered.

But at a media conference on Monday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern appeared unaware of any new legislation, and said she would await the findings of an ongoing parliamentary committee into foreign interference before any changes were made to existing laws.
