This is what Wallace Klinck thinks of Cory Berardi's latest bulletin of "Common Sense Lives Here:
Cory Bernardi says that his new so-called “Australian Conservatives" Movement is driving “change” in Australia but from his comments in this bulletin it is more than obvious that the “change” of which he speaks is actually more of the same and even an intended intensification of the tragic and misguided policies which have been the mark of Western politicians in the past—policies which have been contaminated by Pharisaism with the consequent continued phased degradation of Christian Civilization. Is Cory simply uninformed—or has he caved in to the false Left-Right dialectic fostered by the forces of destruction which from time immemorial have waged relentless war against Christian beliefs--and especially any organic incarnation of them?
I found Bernardi's comment "We know that no nation is perfect. However to blame the centuries-old MIddle East problems on the only democratic nation in the region is astounding..." quite revealing.
"The only democratic nation in the region"?
Methinks it is time Cory Bernardi explained his understanding of a 'democracy' - even that of a modern 'democracy'.
Shlomo Sand in his work "The Invention of the Jewish People" questioned whether the term "Jewish and Democratic" wasn't An Oxymoron?
Nikki Haley is the new US Ambassador to the United Nations who recently attended her first Security Council meeting on Middle East issues. Her comments in the press following the meeting were scathing. Haley said:
"The Security Council is supposed to discuss how to maintain international peace and security. But at our meeting on the Middle East, the discussion was not about Hezbollah’s illegal build-up of rockets in Lebanon. It was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists. It was not about how we defeat ISIS. It was not about how we hold Bashar al-Assad accountable for the slaughter of hundreds and thousands of civilians. No, instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East. I am new around here, but I understand that's how the Council has operated, month after month, for decades."
"I'm here to say the United States will not turn a blind eye to this anymore. I am here to underscore the ironclad support of the United States for Israel. I'm here to emphasize the United States is determined to stand up to the UN's anti-Israel bias."
Her observation matched my own experience at the UN last year. The very first meeting I went to was an Israel-bashing session which was 6o minutes of alternative truth. Led by the 'State of Palestine' (which only exists at the United Nations) the anti-Israel agenda was supported by the PC Western world.
We know that no nation is perfect. However, to blame the centuries-old Middle East problems on the only democratic nation in the region is astounding. But this is the way of the modern progressive agenda.
The left's duality of logic means it’s a travesty for the US President to temporarily suspend entry to the USA by citizens of known problem nations but it's OK for these same nations to refuse entry to any Israeli citizen. Such is their hatred of Jews and the Jewish state, some of these countries don’t even include Israel on their world maps.
I’m glad Australia is on Israel’s map, as we enjoy a visit right now from Prime Minister Netanyahu – the first serving Prime Minister of Israel to ever visit Australia. Of course, a number of 'prominent' Australians (read: elites) are mobilising to protest the visit.
Green totalitarians advocate boycotts of Jewish-owned businesses and some useful idiots in the media back them up. Many of these same people say paying an Islamic religious tax in the form of shonky Halal certification is OK and that those of us opposed to this scam are simply being 'racist'.
These same useful idiots have defended the crooked Australian Federation of Islamic Councils and the cultural sensitivities of schools allowing Muslim boys not to shake hands with women.
It’s clear there are none so blind as those who refuse to see the hypocrisy of their own positions.
Alarmingly, we see too many myopic politicians in the major parties today. Whether it is fear or ignorance, many choose to ignore reality and pursue the alternative truth that suits their agenda. The big problem is that their agenda isn’t one that benefits you!
The recent frank comments by Nikki Haley on behalf of the United States suggest that might be about to change. Let's hope we feel that change Down Under too.
Until next week.
