Fraught Bubble

I’m still very firm, personally, of the view that it was uncalled for and inappropriate and she shouldn’t have done it. However, on reflection, I also think it was also probably unnecessary for me to bother to write the opinion piece. I can just think it.”

– Former writer Peter Van Onselen makes Maoist amends after his column lambasting Grace Tame for her look-at-bratty-me behaviour with Scott Morrison at The Lodge caused a left-wing outrage tsunami

    The Wrongelizer is sorry-not-sorry that he accidentally-on-purpose called out Grace Tame for rudely showing up ScoMo’s staged photo op and then spoiling the photos.

    As far as I’m concerned all these shallow people are welcome to be shallow together, turning up at their useless little gatherings along with the sad legacy media that encourages them on. I will note that Grace Tame has yet to offer any sort of apology for her very unfair treatment of Geoffrey Rush … at least when she is bratty she owns it all the way, there’s something to be said for sincerity.

    This reminded of when the Banking royal commission was released. did these same people criticize him.
    She turned up as she was the previous Australian of the year. That is not hard to find out.
    Shallow people indeed. It should not have been a phot op for a battling PM.

    Don’t worry Peter.
    Australia will soon persecute thought too.

    The left’s lack of charity will be it’s undoing, pointing out that lack of charity rather than imitating it might be a more solid base from which to ensure one does not endure the same fate. It’s also preferable to the grovelling apology/ walkback here.

    The whole AOTY charade has become nothing but a photo op for those shallow and desperate people who love themselves more than they love humanity. Your most sensible suggestion was made a few days ago, when you said (paraphrased) that it should be discontinued.

    Add in discontinuing the Australian “Honours” System, and a lot of shallow, useless, narcissists would cease to pollute our lives. The few whose awards are worthwhile would still be known in their communities, the rest wouldn’t be missed.

  6. C.L. says:

    Tame is lauded throughout the land for her ‘advocacy’ regarding sexual assault.

    But sexual assault was illegal when she was appointed and it still is.

    She achieved nothing.

  7. Not Trampis says:

    Nick Gruen once made the point that most honours are for people simply doing their job.

    More shallow thinking again. The point about Tame is did she raise the issue of sexual assault on minors. Yes she did. It will be the same for present incumbent

  8. C.L. says:

    Yes, before Tame the sexual abuse of minors wasn’t getting any air-time at all.

  9. Boambee John says:

    ROFLMAO

    I agree with Non Mentis about AOTY being useless, and suddenly he sees value in the award.

  10. Lee says:

    The point about Tame is did she raise the issue of sexual assault on minors. Yes she did.

    More of the “I/she did it first” narcissistic nonsense from the left.

    From tomorrow’s headlines: Rosie Batty seeks meeting with Morrison so she can snub and side-eye him.

  12. Tel says:

    Yes, before Tame the sexual abuse of minors wasn’t getting any air-time at all.

    If I remember rightly, back in the day, some conspiracy nuts were telling us all about the dangers of pizza … I’m hazy on the details.

  13. jupes says:

    I think everyone is missing the point.

    For a week or so, Grace Tame is in the headlines while Brittany Higgins takes a back seat. You go girl!

  14. Old Lefty says:

    I remember from my youth in the 70s an ABC interview asking Whitlam about the meeting with Kerr on 11 November. The ABC hack was obviously hoping to hear that Gough had ranted and sworn at Kerr, but Gough replied rather frostily ‘I know how to behave’.

    Contrast with Grace Tame.

    John Howard, by the way, was always impeccably polite, even when people abused him to his face.

  15. Old Lefty says:

    I have a bright and woke idea for parliament house: compulsory seminars on courteous and respectful treatment of colleagues and staff conducted by Gareth Evans.
