    Par for the course for their ABC. The only speech they permit is the speech they approve of.

    Sky has also been a huge disappointment but last night, on Panahi, the wonderful UK commentator Calvin Robinson spoke some truth about what’s happening in Ukraine. Whilst condemning the Russian invasion (most of us do), he spoke of the deluge of fake news in the western MSM and he said, accurately, that the Ukrainian government isn’t lily white and innocent of any culpability.


  2. Buccaneer says:

    The ABC trying to pretend that interruptions on Question and F@ck off are somehow unusual is pretty rich.

    Regardless of Ukrainian corruption, the obvious propaganda of war and actions in Donbass prior to this escalation, it seems that the claims about Donbass were an excuse. If reports are correct that Russia still does not occupy all of the Donbass region the whole pretext for war has been exposed, indeed, it’s likely that local resistance has contributed to this situation. One might have expected this region to be the easiest victory for the Russians.

    It’s Q&A. Didn’t they have someone in the audience who could have thrown a shoe at him?

    Reminds me of that moment years ago when at some public meeting, a widow of one of the Kursk victims started berating someone from the Russian government and was promptly forcibly sedated. The ABC is much more genteel, for now.

    Re the gap between the question and the expulsion – was the producer whispering in Stan’s shell-like to take action? Or was it a unilateral decision?

  5. Cassie of Sydney says:

    Remember how their ABC never had a problem giving Zaky Mallah a platform.

  6. Not Trampis says:

    poor old Cassie.
    Has Russia and Ukraine as moral equivalents and now drags Mallah into this but like CL can’t explain why she does this.
    the MSM has been pretty good at examining fake footage etc. As for propaganda anyone can see from what either side is saying that russia was talking shite and is still talking shite.
    One problem for Putin is the large number of blood relations between the two countries. one phone call instantly destroys any russian propaganda.
    As for kicking him out well he was spewing false russian propaganda

  7. Cassie of Sydney says:

    Poor old Von Trampis.

  8. C.L. says:

    Homer claimed yesterday that Malcolm Fraser caused the East Timor invasion.

    Quality historical analysis, as always.


    I saw Calvin Robinson with Rita too. Excellent.

    What Grant is saying is “ I’m sorry an unvetted question was asked”. He then goes on to completely misrepresent the question as if the questioner was advocating violence when he was raising concerns how media were reporting . Well, that’ll teach him to question his masters! An unvetted question was asked. Grant begs his fellow woke snowflakes for mercy and promises it won’t happen again. A couple of good recent stories in Spiked show how the weak and woke really see this conflict.

    Practice, they make so much of it themselves?

    As for kicking him out well he was spewing false russian propaganda

    As different to Zaky Mallah, who seemed to be spewing actual Isssslamiicc propaganda, and was specially driven to the studio by Their ABC?

    As for the conflict, perhaps we should heed the wise words of Henry Kissinger about an earlier war, “Can’t they both lose?”

  11. Lee says:

    Well we can’t have anyone bringing up “unfortunate” claims, allegations, or facts that go against the MSM narrative, can we?
    Least of all on the close-minded, partisan ABC.

  12. jupes says:

    Part of the question asked on sTan’s stupid program:

    Since 2014, the Ukrainian government together with Nazi groups like the Azov Battalion have besieged the Russian populations in the Donbas killing an estimated 13,000 people according to the United Nations.

    Right. So if and when the Azov Battalion goes into action against the Russians, our government is literally supporting Nazis.

    Where is the journalist to put that fact to SloMo and his government?

  13. Not Trampis says:

    CL, is lying as usual. He does not understand what the word pretext means. look it up.

    Err no Mallah asked a mere question. The minister who did a CL thought Mallah was a convicted terrorist which he was not and he could be deported which he cannot.

    I see we have a lot of Putin apologists here. Typical of deplorables

  14. Boambee John says:

    Non Mentis

    Err no Mallah asked a mere question.

    As did Sasha, but you don’t like his question, so you are happy to have him censored.

    How very deplorable. Still, it is good to see you bitterly clinging to your chosen narrative, regardless of reality.

    PS, where did CL refer to a “pretext”? Buccaneer did, but not CL. You seem to have a lot of trouble distinguishing between commenters. Perhaps if you had finished pre-school, you might have better reading comprehension?

  15. Texas Jack says:

    I still dunno why anyone watches or talks about or so much as thinks of the ABC, let alone has it on their TV remote. Worrying about Stan? C’Mon sheeple…

  16. Not Trampis says:

    No Mallah asked a question concerning what had occurred to him whilst the other bloke asked a question right out of the russian propaganda unit.
    Indeed Mallah put a minister on the spot which is why he lied..

    go back and complete the ESL you missed at primary school. I did not say CL referred to a petrext.

  17. Boambee John says:

    Non Mentis

    Your exact words:

    CL, is lying as usual. He does not understand what the word pretext means. look it up.

    So, you say that he does not know what “pretext” means, but you also say:

    I did not say CL referred to a petrext.

    I think that we all realise that you are short a couple of roos in the top paddock, but if he did not mention the word, why did you tell him to “look it up”?

    You are deplorably stupid, but cling bitterly to the conceit that you are intelligent. Go back to pre-school, and this time, try to learn something.

    PS, what’s a “petrext”?

  18. Lee says:

    I see we have a lot of Putin apologists here.

    One can highlight how utterly corrupt Ukraine is without being a “Putin apologist.”

    Apparently it’s okay to carry out an ambush on Q&A, with the proviso that only leftists can do so.
    Everyone else must be censored or cut off.

  19. Buccaneer says:

    Even more obtuse, I referred to Russia’s pretext for war being removed by the likelihood that they have still not secured the entirety of the regions that were supposed to be one of the main reasons for the ‘special operation’. Not much to do with your odious mate Zachy there NM.

    I think it’s great that Qand FO outed themselves as the horrid censors we have all known them to be. Usually they do it more covertly using censorship by omission, censorship by stacking the audience, censorship by stacking the panel, censorship by interruption by the audience, the panel, the host.

    “I see we have a lot of Putin apologists here. Typical of deplorables”

    Oh dear, note the sneering condescension and dismissiveness by Non Compos.

  21. Cassie of Sydney says:

    Non Compos is also an anti-Semite. Thanks for admitting it. No wonder he likes Zaky boy.

  22. John Brumble says:

    I previously said that CL had poor form. Let me be abundantly clear that whatever I objected to is several.. no, many.. orders of magnitude less distasteful that the ABC’s efforts at misrepresentation.
