NO, Nazi man-babies is not Bill Shorten’s kinky new nickname for his bosom. It’s how the former Labor leader describes the construction workers who caused CFMEU thug John Setka to wee in his King Gees at yesterday’s protest against mandatory vaccinations. As I’ve pointed out several times, a mythical army of “Nazis” is being used by the left-wing establishment to traduce and marginalise those who oppose the increasingly violent extremism of Australian governments. Along with many other laws that hitherto made the nation a democratic jewel in a chaotic world, Godwin’s has been peremptorily suspended as well.
Protesters who don’t so much attack the status quo as merely demand sanctioned orthodoxies be more hurriedly enforced – race activists, feminists and environmentalists, for example – are never called Nazis. Their only crime is to be impatient about what the state currently considers saleable. Ssshhh to them is fraternal counsel; to anti-lockdown activists it’s the sound of pepper-spray being deployed into their eyeballs.
If all your enemies are Nazis, there is nothing that can’t be justified. Not since Bob “Run Over The Bastards” Askin has a Premier been as casual about using violence as Daniel Andrews. He says he was “proud” of Victoria Police after officers were filmed brutalising a mature woman protester at the weekend. There is something approximating a fetish in Mr Andrews’ attraction to uniformed cruelty and something akin to flaccidity of demeanor when his malice is scotched. After the High Court acquitted Cardinal Pell – a pre-covid victim of VicPol crookedness – Maximum Dan was as minimum as a eunuch in a cold shower.
In light of ASIO’s ongoing publicity campaign against Garage Nazis, the likelihood that politicians will – in millennial parlance – call out those misusing the new n-word to abuse critics and silence dissent is slim. For the “spy” agency that traditionally reveals what it knew about Muslim terrorists after they’ve killed somebody, as long as its Director-General keeps warning about “Nazis” he can stroll through the Treasury with a shopping trolley. Old Left haters in Senate Estimates are thrilled to learn the enemy within isn’t, for once, them. Have another billion. Since 1945, there have indeed been Hitler-curious dickheads around the world – a few dangerous, most so ignored by society and compromised by non-Aryan delights that they fade into oblivion. By contrast, since 1917 there have been tens of thousands of wannabe Lenins waging war against civilisation and many now occupy formerly esteemed offices. We need to revive the c-word and use it liberally.
