“Gay people shouldn’t be allowed to teach kids” says Bob Katter’s Australia Party

January 24, 2013
Tess Corbett: "I don’t want gays, lesbians to be working in my kindergarten. "

Tess Corbett: “I don’t want gays, lesbians to be working in my kindergarten. “

Bob Katter’s Australian Party is back in the headlines again over another anti-gay controversy after not one, but two candidates, of the Queensland party likened gays and lesbians to “paedophiles” who are not fit to teach children at kindergarten.

Running for Katter’s Party, in the federal seat of Wannon, Victoria, retired former real estate agent Tess Corbett (pictured) told her local newspaper The Hamilton Spectator in a front-page interview yesterday that gay people were “a danger unto children and religious organisations and others should be able to legally discriminate against them when hiring employees.”

“Paedophiles will be next in line to be recognised in the same way as gays and lesbians and get rights,” she said.

“I don’t want gays, lesbians to be working in my kindergarten. If you don’t like it go to another kindergarten.”

Corbett received support for her views last night from Katter’s potential Queensland Federal Senate candidate, Bernard Gaynor, who tweeted that he was not afraid to say he wouldn’t want gay teachers at his children’s school.

“I wouldn’t let a gay person teach my children and I am not afraid to say it,” he said.

Speaking to media this morning, Corbett said she would not back from her views claiming that about 80 per cent of the community shared her opinion.

“You have got morals, or you don’t,” she told the Herald-Sun.

In a statement this morning, Gaynor, an Iraq War veteran and practising Catholic, also let it be known he stood by his tweets despite a backlash against him on Twitter with other users calling him “homophobic”, “narrow minded” and “hateful”.

“Furthermore, considering both Tony Abbott and Julia Gillard oppose gay marriage it makes perfect sense that they would also be uncomfortable with teachers promoting a lifestyle that has serious negative health consequences and is opposed to the values of the majority of Australians,” Gaynor said.

“Australia has always been a Christian country and the vast majority of Australians continue to hold Christian values” he said.

    two candidates, of the Queensland party likened gays and lesbians to “paedophiles” who are not fit to teach children at kindergarten.

    Being the straight, non-pc, boof-head that l am, and have not followed this closely. To me, `pedo`s have always seemed to be either,
    1. church hiding, chastity vow taking priests, OR,
    2. married types, usually male, claiming to be hetro
    Now l don`t know, but l don`t recall anybody being arrested, charged, convicted for `pedo` AND actually claiming/being `gay` or have l missed something?

    `we have no business telling the folks in Newtown Sydney (wink, wink) how to live their lives` and `l won`t allow my party and Queenslanders to be used to push the ignorant yokel argument line for the benefit of Sydney bogans`
    =
    What we can see from this is that Katter and his party fulfill and will continue to fulfill the truth of poilticians are of average or below, in intelligence and ability.

    It’s a terrible shame that too many heterosexuals have been duped by homosexual activism. Some of us actually know about Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen’s book, “After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the ’90s.” We know about their cunning six-point plan to change heterosexual’s views. A quote from the book: “We intend to make the anti-gays look so nasty that average Americans will want to disassociate themselves from such types”. Their six-point plan proposed other tactics like using heterosexuals as homosexual protectors and homosexuals playing the “victim card”. Too many heterosexuals have jumped naively on the bandwagon of supporting homosexual rights without even bothering to find out about the roots of this whole movement.

    Homosexual activists have been belligerent and relentless in taking action (e.g., law suits), especially in the USA, to further their cause. Even when sued, they have counter-sued – to that extent they are so militant and uncompassionate. San Fransisco is a clear example of this militancy.

    Homosexuals have complained for years about “homophobia” from heterosexuals. However, when one investigates deeper into the GLBT sphere, there are complex issues of prejudice and discrimination in that sphere, which homosexuals are not revealing to us. There is tremendous and undeniable hypocrisy on the part of homosexuals because they have carried out their own “biphobia” towards bisexuals.

    Supposedly, they are interested in “marriage equality”. This platform is only really about pushing for gay marriage – do you hear them pushing for marriage for polyamorists or others? If caucasian Australians accept Vietnamese and Iranians only, and do not accept Indians, Africans, and others, is this true “racial equality”? Of course not!

    I appeal to you that before you criticise people like Ms Corbett or Mr Katter, find out the facts for yourself and find out the roots of the homosexual movement that has lead us to this point we are at today.

    I wonder about that. I think they are well and truly in the mainstream here. They are hiding in plain sight and have control of the coalition which is our other major political party. Abbott is one of them. The frightening thing is if abbott wins the election we will have a tea party government. Lunatics yes, scary yes, extreme yes and right here, right now, ready to govern. The cory bernardi types control the liberal party and bernardi is still recruiting teabaggers and strategising through their well funded corporate shelters.

    All hidden activity of course, don’t want the public to know about their ‘vision’ for australia.

    The slipper/ashby controversy is a result of abbot and qld LNP teabaggers conspiring to bring down the government of the day. There isn’t much difference between them and katter’s lot IMO.

    Pimping newsltd style!

    Pimping Ain’t Easy:

    http://wixxyleaks.com/2013/01/25/pimping-aint-easy/

    This is a company that unquestionably draws a huge income from promoting brothels, sex lines, and prostitutes…

    …Prostitution and pimping pay for the services and opinions of journalists and opinion writers alike at News Ltd.

    But is it just prostitution that makes News Ltd a dodgy, immoral company that is not to be trusted? I come to this opinion based on News Ltd’s own portayal of those others involved to a lesser degree in the sex industry.

    Many of the “Indian Beauty’s” and “Saucy Young Asian Girls” at these News Ltd clients are believed to be illegal immigrants, who allegedly work “off the books”. I contacted some of those advertised in todays paper regarding this, they would neither confirm or deny allegations of illegal workers. Those people who do work illegally, pay no tax, and are the kind of people normally described by News Ltd publications as bludgers or queue jumpers bleeding the Australian taxpayer dry.

    …People like Andrew Bolt and Piers Akerman must sleep well knowing that their propaganda services are paid for by prostitution and with advertising paid for by employers of illegal immigrants, possibly even the people smugglers they claim to despise…

    730reportland and toiletminorpissigloo – can you discern a difference between my posts and yours’? Mine is devoid of expletives, intimidation or personal criticism, and endeavours to convey solidity behind a factual argument.

    In addition to biphobia carried out by homosexuals, “transphobia” has also been carried out by the same. Observe the words of the transsexual, Gianna E. Israel:

    “During the early 1980s when having a transgender identity was less accepted by gays and lesbians, there were a variety of occasions I was verbally harassed or physically attacked by these persons. How dare you make us gays look bad by living as a woman. You have to leave, this may be the Castro, but we don’t serve your type of person in this business. Words hurt, but so did the spit, rocks and bottles I had thrown at me by hostile gay men. Such attacks these days would not be considered politically correct, although I still hear of those situations occurring from time to time.

    Naturally at the time I discussed the transphobia I experienced with those gays and lesbians I considered supportive. They assured me that not all gays and lesbians hated transgender people. Despite those consoling words a deep anger remained inside of me. I found that this anger came out often at the most inconvenient times. In the future, when I encounter petty acts of transphobia from gays or lesbians, I feel I would throw a big fit! Can you image a full grown therapist throwing temper tantrums in public? These feelings arise most frequently when I am minding my own business, and I encounter a gay couple who was not content to leave me alone.”

    When I was studying at an Australian university in the early 90’s, the homosexual group was distributing flyers to those in the bar area. The flyer appeared as a form of propaganda to me. It made claims such as that heterosexuality was not normal because we as children naturally interact with those of the same gender and spurn such interactions with those of the opposite one. How watery is this argument? Well, this begs the question – how did the being of these homosexuals come about? Did homosexuals come into being via homosexuality? Homosexuals were displaying their activistic orientation back then, which I saw first-hand as a young man.

    With acceptance of homosexuality, the occurrences of harassment of heterosexuals by homosexuals will rise. My wife has faced such harassment, twice from one lesbian couple in the same supermarket on different occasions and once each from two different lesbians in different shopping centres. On one occasion, one of the former couple rubbed themselves against my wife while she reached for a product on the shelves. My wife was made to feel uncomfortable in every case. She and I are offended and infuriated by such behaviour. Is it unacceptable when a male perpetrates such harassment, yet somehow condonable if a female does it because they are of the same gender? I have experienced similar harassment from two different males. Both had invaded my personal space, which we all fully know is socially inappropriate behaviour. This type of harassment was unheard of when homosexuals knew their orientation had to be kept hidden. In fact, it will now be worse because both male and female homosexuals will be perpetrators unlike before when it was a male phenomenon. Things are changing since you and so many others wish to accept homosexuality. It would be indeed highly indecent and insensitive of anyone to defend such harassment.

I would have complained to super market management and then the police – if they rubbed themselves deliberately against you, that is, in fact, assault … a criminal offence …

    Was anything actually said before they harrassed you and/or your wife physically … that’s a lot of “personal experience” in a very insightful post …

    Umm, TB Queensland – I didn’t say homosexuals “pick on us all the time”. These are a few incidents we have experienced that have arisen because of allowing homosexuality to no longer be a hidden shame, thanks to people like you all. Yes, you are most correct that it is a criminal offence, it’s not that I didn’t realise that. The number of criminal offenses by homosexuals will now rise because of acceptance of their sexuality. And maybe we will now complain if such incidents ever arise rather than be intimidated because of the change in the climate.

    Umm, reb, those were not my words but those of the transsexual I cited.

    730 – what makes you think I am a “church-troll”? How do you know I am not a Muslim since it is said “Would ye really approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, ye are a people (grossly) ignorant!” (Qur’an 27:55) and “Of all the creatures in the world, will ye approach males, And leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your mates? Nay, ye are a people transgressing (all limits)! ” (Qur’an 26:165). You shouldn’t assume that only Christians or church people disagree with homosexuality.

    730 – heard that nonsense many times before that if one is against homosexuality then one is a “closet homosexual”. By that reasoning, maybe you are a closet Christian? Go on, maybe you really want to be a Christian and are in denial?

    armchair – there was no way any of these perpetrators knew anything of our disagreement with homosexuality. The situations were not such that this could happen and were spontaneous. Please do not invent explanations that are untrue.

    We know that when humans are unable to deal with a comfortable situation, they will apply humour to it, which can be seen from your posts. You are facing reality which you simply cannot deny, so you resort to humour and belittling others (not the behaviour of genuine human rights supporters) to deal with it.

    For your information, posters, of which you all know absolutely nothing about, my wife receives harassment and inappropriate attention from men all the time, simply because she is very attractive. She is absolutely fed up and sick and tired of males bothering her. There would hardly be a week where she doesn’t complain to me about this. The lengths that a few of them have gone to, when she has told them she is a married woman, is repugnant. So no, she doesn’t send out signals or such, either to males or females. Maybe you should find out facts first before supposing that my wife sent signals or interest in lesbians. You now owe my wife, who is insulted by your comments, an apology. No, I am NOT joking.

    My observation of your behaviour from your responses is that you are *not* truly interested in human rights, which you would have us to believe based on interest in homosexual rights. Certainly my experience in this forum is not that of one who is seeing human rights in action. You are interested only in furthering a particular cause out of self-interest or cannot handle your innate desires, no more than a paederast can handle theirs.

    We live in post-modern times of subjectivity where supposedly all opinions are equally valid and each has a right to their opinion. Homosexuals have used this characteristic of post-modernism to further their cause, but again in hypocrisy, they want to silence those who disagree with them! I am forbidden to disagree with homosexuality, homosexual marriage and so forth, but I am patted on the back an in a western nation and given lip service that I am allowed to hold my own opinion. Terrible hypocrisy!

    From looking at all your posts, I can conclude two points:
    1. You do not conduct the practice of establishing facts, which is the same reason why you lack knowledge about homosexual activism, biphobia and transphobia by homosexuals, sexual harassment by homosexuals, etc.
    2. You propose suppositions to explain what you have read in my posts, which you are unable to handle.

    But you took no action? You sound like a model citizen … surely, its your duty to society – let alone your “very attractive” wife, to make examples of gay thugs … I would!

    The number of criminal offenses by homosexuals will now rise because of acceptance of their sexuality. And maybe we will now complain if such incidents ever arise rather than be intimidated because of the change in the climate.

    This is a fascinating paragraph and I struggle to make sense of the correlation between homosexuality and climate change … are you intimidated by gays and/or climate change?

    FYI, gays only baffle me and I’m agnostic regarding climate change …

    The number of criminal offenses by homosexuals will now rise because of acceptance of their sexuality.

    And will they rise to anywhere near the number of offences committed by the ‘accepted’ heterosexuals?
    Maybe that will be a sign of true equality, the freedom to commit criminal offences without fear of stigmatising all homosexuals 😆

    Please do not invent explanations that are untrue

    Like invented transgender stories and minding-their-own-business-persecuted heterosexual couple attacked for no reason at all whilst out shopping?

    For your information, posters, of which you all know absolutely nothing about, my wife receives harassment and inappropriate attention from men all the time,

    Along with the rest of the female population, it happens on a daily basis – only it comes from heterosexual males not gays. It is called sexism. Women can’t even walk the street without unwanted sexual harassment.

    I think that JG and the labor right have disappointed a lot of progressives with their conservatism. Even her own party had to roll her on the Israel/UN vote [abstention] and I’m pleased they did, but look at all the fuss in the newsltd press about that. The single parent and asylum seeker policy punishment is not labor, more trying to get votes away from abbott.
    She really thinks the way to win the election is by appealing to the middle, and she may be right according to their polling, but Labor’s lack of social progression is the reason I vote Greens. Labor don’t seem to care about losing the votes of ‘lefties’.

    I would still preference Labor over that ‘pathetic piece of shit’ tony abbott, can’t stand him and all he represents. My elderly mum is so enraged at seeing him on the telly she screams for someone to give her a gun, so she can shoot him!

    Miglo – “You might need to take a crash course on empathy.” looks like an attempt to deflect from the lack of beneficence from the other posters?

    TB – I said my wife experienced this rubbing against, not me. With all the misunderstandings, no wonder people in this forum are lost when it comes to this whole issue.

    AO – You can find about that transsexual’s experience on the web: http://www.firelily.com/gender/gianna/homophobia.html. While you are at it, why don’t you go to http://www.bilerico.com/2009/12/upon_further_reflection_and_deliberation.php, which is in reference to a transphobic article written by a prejudiced homosexual. View the anger from transgender supporters towards this article and the Bilerico editorial team. Ironically, a homosexual’s right to his personal opinion has been impeded!

    AO – In relation to the incident with my wife and myself, why do you even question something that we unfortunately experienced and is as true as true can be? By the same token, I can question everything you have stated and your own integrity, and I have no reason to believe your views at all. Is it because you are unable to handle the truth I put before you?

    And the apology to my wife? Did I expect this from pseudo-human rights advocates?

    From Stanley Kurtz (PhD in social anthropology):
    “Gay marriage is part and parcel of a whole new stage of marital decline — a stage still relatively unfamiliar in the United States. In this new stage of marital decline, couples don’t just cohabit before they become parents. Couples cohabit even after they become parents. Because gay marriage helps to break apart the ideas of marriage and parenthood, it is closely associated with this advanced stage of marital decline.”

    and

    “The National Swedish Social Insurance Board recently convened a panel in which two legal experts recommended changes in Swedish family law. One invoked same-sex parenting to argue for legal recognition of three- and even four-parent families. According to this scholar, the antiquated two-parent standard virtually forces lesbian couples to find anonymous sperm donors, rather than form a more complex family with, say, gay sperm donors to whom they feel close.

    The polyamory movement has reached Sweden, and there are now Swedes who would seize on triple or quadruple parenting to usher in legalized polyamory. By the way, this conference invoked the well-known fact (the one Spedale denies) that families with unmarried parents dissolve at higher rates. Yet here the figures on rising family dissolution were used to justify the rejection of traditional dual parenthood. With so many dissolved cohabitors and gay parents, why not do away with the two-parent standard altogether? So as Sweden combines formal gay marriage with adoption rights for same-sex couples, the dawn of quadruple parenting and polyamory looms. So much for Frank’s claim that formal gay marriage will reinforce the link between marriage and parenthood.” [S. Kurtz, “The Marriage Mentality”, National Review Online, 4 May 2004]

    Abbott plans to dispel over three years of entrenched negativity in only seven to ten months*. Coalition spinmeisters are already hard at work, backgrounding senior journalists on the transition secure in the knowledge that if the media can be convinced about its effectiveness then so can the public.

    Couples cohabit even after they become parents.

    Is that a bad thing? Pity more heterosexual couples don’t cohabit after children are added to the marriage …

    “Marriage is a way that government exerts social control. I’m uncomfortable supporting it. I’m interested in changing society, not assimilation.”, Homosexual activist, James Wagner.

    “Our movement has become about lusting for weddings and lavender picket fences…It’s so embarrassing–I feel like turning in my gay card”, Homosexual activist, William Dobbs.

    “Marriage is a problematic goal in terms of gay sexuality. It doesn’t exactly deny sexuality, but it does seek to tame it. Yet the monogamous ideal enshrined in marriage is a challenge regardless of one’s sexual orientation. With the Census Bureau reporting that divorce rates are climbing and new marriages decreasing, it seems that gays are fighting to get into a burning house. If the legalization of gay marriage is achieved, will homosexuals be further marginalized if they can’t or won’t conform to a heterosexual ideal that even straight people can’t meet? Careful polling would help answer the question of whether marriage is even a widely shared goal within the gay community.

    Many gays in the U.S. will breathe a sigh of relief at the idea that gay life is no longer defined solely by sex. And marriage may be a noble goal for some. But in redefining what it means to be gay in America, the gay community itself is on the verge of marginalizing those who refuse to conform to a system of heterosexual morality.”, Homosexual activist, Patrick Moore

    you got me 🙄

    I simply don’t care. I don’t think your story is relevant to anything. You can’t extrapolate one isolated incident as representative of the entire gay community.

    I just wish I knew why it is all so upsetting for you, why you are so fearful of people being able to do something that will have absolutely no effect on you and your wife’s life and marriage.

    By the way, this conference invoked the well-known fact (the one Spedale denies) that families with unmarried parents dissolve at higher rates.

    I’d like to see some stats on that assertion. Could it be that more people are choosing to live in de facto arrangements?

    http://www.cato.org/events/gay-marriage-evidence-europe

    William N. Eskridge Jr. and Darren R. Spedale find that the argument often advanced is inconsistent with the Scandinavian evidence. In no way, they write, has marriage in the Nordic countries suffered from legalization of same-sex unions. A close look at the data suggests that the sanctioning of gay marriage in the United States would neither undermine marriage as an institution nor harm the well-being of children. Maggie Gallagher argues that the move toward gay marriage in Europe is part of a larger marriage crisis, including a powerful trend away from marriage as a social norm for childbearing and child rearing.

    http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/Lookup/4102.0Main+Features20March%202009

    Consistent with the declining proportion of people in couple relationships has been the fall in the proportion who were in a registered marriage, from 62% in 1986 to 52% in 2006. On the other hand, there has been an increase in the proportion of adults in de facto relationships, which more than doubled from 4% to 9% over the period.

    Why not just let people do as they wish?
    Stop agonising over what other people do in their marriage, their lives and their bedroom. It’s hard enough to find happiness as it is.

    Yes, it started with howard when the stay-at-home mum’s got rewarded with baby bonuses and Abbott’s govt will pay the high earning mum’s their usual wage to stay home. If only Abbott could bring back his “Battlelines” 1950’s era policy to disallow no-fault divorce, make them go to court and force women stay with their financial controller/abusers. Of course you would have to combine it with ensuring that women could not survive on a single parent pension then men could resume their rightful place as head of the house.

    I don’t think gays will ever go back into the closet.
    Don’t forget the bill allowing religion to discriminate also affects heterosexual women as well as gays. Religious bodies can discriminate due to pregnancy, perceived future pregnancy, single parent, lifestyle [apparently doesn’t matter if men run around making babies out of wedlock]

    I agree with you, however I know that abbott’s mob would offer nothing either, so for me, the status quo remains. On gay marriage, Gillard is not reducing any rights that are already in existence [she is on the single parent’s though, abbott could always offer more to wedge, but he hasn’t].

    Labor hasn’t been socially progressive for many years, I don’t know why people were expecting so much more of Gillard than any of the others. The power is with the lobbyists and the right wing union faction of labor, we know what would happen if gillard caved, there’d be another right wing coup, she’d be knifed just as Rudd was. To me, the real debate should be to stop the taxpayer funding of religion. Let religious bodies stand alone and be funded privately by their supporters.

    Perhaps we really do need another hung parliament so the Greens can force gay marriage through?

That his Sunday address contained statements that contradicted not merely the most basic principles of economics, but his own clearly articulated views, is of no moment. And anyway, this was a campaign speech, and such speeches are the last place you want serious content and rigid adherence to fact. Such events are about geeing up the faithful, about creating energy, about generating positive imagery.

    TB – do I fear gay marrriage? My question is why is that when one shows even any disagreement with homosexuality that the “-phobe” term is used in a reactionary manner? Why should disagreement with this issue be met with “Homophobe!”? Folks, when someone disagrees with something, it doesn’t mean they “fear” it!! Post-modernism means diversity of thoughts and views, so if I hold a view contrary to yours, then in this supposed enlightened day and age you should be accepting of that view without maligning me with the “-phobe” suffix. After all, homosexual activists have been buttressed by post-modernism in achieving their goals.

    You might want to look at http://www.lesbilicious.co.uk/why-do-lesbians-hate-bisexuals/ to view an article about predudice from homosexuals to lesbians. Some views from readers there:

    “Yes, there is a big problem of bi women calling themselves lesbians and eroding our identity.” Laura

    “For all of you angry lesbians out there, thanks for making the real bisexuals feel like crap. I hate what I am, and I wish I were either gay or straight. And no, you can’t make yourself one or the other; surely you know that. If you think that our feeling for the same sex aren’t genuine, then you are missing out on a lot of amazing people.” Mina

    “Gurl you will unfortunately learn the hard way. How sure are you that your bisexual gf isn’t f- some guy? Newsflash, bisexuals can’t live without MEN. Do yourself a favor and get rid of her. As for all the other lesbians you know, they too will sadly learn the hard way. Bisexuals and lesbians don’t belong together. Lesbians always get the short end of the stick when it comes to the bisexuals. Leave them to the men.” Jess

    “Mina, as far as I’m concerned, u r more LGBTQ family than any of the bigoted ‘lesbians’ spouting their biphobia on here.” Bex

    “Just because myself a other lesbians aren’t into being used doesn’t mean we hate them. I’m just not stupid enough to put myself in a situation doomed to failure from the get go.Bisexuals need to stay out of the LESBIAN community.” Rean

    “I am pretty disgusted by bisexual women.I wish it weren’t true…I haven’t had any negative experiences with a woman as a direct result of her bisexuality.I’ve been quite lucky in love and have enjoyed many relationships with women over the last 20 plus years that I’ve been dating…I’ve dated several bi women cos I liked them but I must say I was pretty disgusted by them the entire time.” G Johnson

    Why should disagreement with this issue be met with “Homophobe!”?

    I didn’t use the word homophobe, G, you did … but you fogged the question I asked.

    I tend to agree with, sreb, you seem to spend an inordinate amount of time “researching” the differenct sexes … it just seems either fearful or unhealthy …

    I have a dislike for ALL organised religions who try to dominate the way ALL people live and think … but I don’t spend time checking out their websites of hatred, greed and hypocrisy …

  191. February 3, 2013 7:25 pm

    Hahaha, the ol’ islam chestnut.

    Crawl back under your rock, G.

    Brainstorm some more rubbish to justify your peculiarity.

  192. February 3, 2013 7:28 pm

    “_quotes from the Quran above: had I quoted from the Bible,_”
    .
    WRONG. Phairy-Tales phrom Phobe-Phlocks are usually just ignored by Non-Believers, a Lesson our mid-west church-troll hasn`t Learned.

    oh,oh, G, you stumbled into a hornet’s nest!

    I’ve been married for 44 years, only because my wife and I didn’t want to upset our parents … “tradition” is a difficult thing to deal with … we were quite happy with a registry Office … can you see the hypocrisy here? Our parents BELIEVED so we kept them HAPPY … they didn’t care about our BELIEFS … we’re agnostic BTW … power and pressure … what about the gay folk who DO believe … would you deny them the right to be accepted … God made them He knows …

    I was baptised because my parents believed that if I died I wouldn’t go to heaven – what crap, didn’t JC say “suffer the little children to come unto me” … no mention of dropping water all over my forehead (and I was seven so I remember all the nonsense) …

    … my sister (seven years my junior – our parents were the same) became a Catholic to wed again … second marriage, so the Pope knows her … she married a potential multi-millionaire – who now is one … what a mean sprited, nasty, self-centred, conniving, thieving, cheating, bitch she has become and a Liberal voter extarodinaire … her husband used to be quite a noice fella … till he was put in his place …

    And BTW Are you all intimidated by Islam? NO-ONE on this blog is intimidated by anyone … especially you, G. Johnson …

    I don’t speak for the Blogmeaster here and never will … but if you you were on my website I’d simply tell you to FUCK OFF and peddle your nonsense elsewhere!

    Or stick around and we’ll have some more fun with you …

    usually teabags are the kooky one`s, but over at coffee-3 l posted a comment that got moderated out, Barry Tucker has upset himself over a single `r` typo on my ABC website, demanded an explainer, which he is not happy with and is now complaining to Ack-MA. lt`s amusing and l thought you`lot` would enjoy an example of Leftism going kooky.
    =========
    here`s the post,
    http://truthinmediaresourcecentre.wordpress.com/2013/01/29/outrageous-slur-appears-on-abc-news-website/
    and here`s my comment that didn`t survive,
    =========
    Is this a Limited-News job application Barry.?
    .
    Look at this tweet (you supplied)
    .
    @steveCannane says
    It was a mistake, and a bad one, but it was a typo, can`t see how a typo is about respect, or class. No intent.
    Keywords = MISTAKE, TYPO, INTENT
    .
    But you didn`t make the case that any of these keywords are false in your post. Don`t you really need to state how or why it is NOT a typo, NOT a mistake or, there WAS intent.?
    .
    By not stating how these keywords are false, it seems to me that your `adjectives` are way over-blown.
    .
    Outrageous slur appears on ABC News website
    is really
    spellcheck failure appears on ABC News website
    .
    lost control of at least some of its staff
    becomes
    lost control of at least some of its accuracy
    .
    etc, etc. I just don`t think it does us, the citizen bloggers any good to be as overblown as the embedded-media.
    .
    The embedded media is awash in *derp and plenty of stuff worthy to head-kick them over.

    That’s no typo, 730 … that’s an ABC mole or should it be a Liberal Party mole in the ABC

  204. February 13, 2013 1:21 pm

    Have you got a reason, or evidence to back that TB.

  205. February 13, 2013 1:28 pm

    l too suspect, it could be,
    ” that’s an ABC mole or should it be a Liberal Party mole in the ABC “
    but prove it.? NO
    l could also suspect that `Juliar` has already been added to the spell-check during the many unhinged 2gb/alan-jones reports that have been done, but not prove that either.

  206. February 13, 2013 1:45 pm

    Hey @jonaholmesMW _ Is `Juliar` in the Ultimo Spell-Check.? _ #myabc

    Have you got a reason, or evidence to back that TB.

    I could give you a few reasons, 007, but sadly nyet evidence

    And yet much harder to sneak, The Mad Monk, into the spellchecker?

    If only we could – he might get spammed! 😛

    ‘Russian police have detained dozens of people who clashed during a protest in Saint Petersburg against new anti-gay legislation.

    ‘Up to 100 people took part in the march organised by the group Ravnopraviye (Equal Rights) to protest against the bill. Police intervened with batons when the marchers were confronted by an equal number of anti-gay activists throwing eggs, smoke flares and stones.

    ‘Critics say the legislation, passed by the Russian parliament two weeks ago, effectively bans gay rights rallies and could be used to prosecute anyone voicing support for gay people.’

    I must thank you for the efforts you’ve put in penning this blog.
    I’m hoping to see the same high-grade content by you later on as well.
    In fact, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my very own website now 😉
