WE’RE over the target so metaphorical bombs away. Australia’s political plutocrats are losing their minds about being called to account not only for their use and endorsement of violence, quackery, bigotry and propaganda for two well-paid years but, above all, for their nazi-like vaccine mandates. With a traditional friendly assist from the ABC, senator for New South Wales and scourge of young Vietnamese-Australian political hopefuls, Kristina Keneally, has referred George Christensen to the AFP for these two harmless Telegram posts. To the best of my knowledge, Keneally hasn’t snitched on a non-Labor MP since December 2020. Last New Year’s Eve, she falsely accused Tony Abbott of breaching a ‘health order’ by having a cup of coffee.
Relatedly, even more ridiculous than Keneally – which is saying something – is Naomi Levin of the Jewish Affairs Council saying she wants the authorities to crack down on those who compare Labor governments to Nazis. That sounds like something the… never mind. I have nothing but esteem for your people, Ms Levin, but it doesn’t seem fair or wise to conflate the Holocaust with references to Nazism. The whole world suffered under their evil reign. And I would have thought it a good thing that the other n-word is now a byword for mindless thug.
