How much of a Total Fuckwit is Joe Hildebrand?

April 3, 2014

Self-professed “journalist” and Telegraph opinionator Joe Hildebrand has found himself on the receiving end of a fiery rebuke from domestic violence survivor Rosie Batty on Channel Ten’s following a fiery exchange on Channel Ten’s Studio 10.

Ms Batty, whose son Luke was killed by his father at a Tyabb cricket field in February, slammed Hildebrand on Channel Ten’s Breakfast TV show on Wednesday after a discussion of proposed Victorian child abuse reporting laws.

The 11-year-old was killed by his father, Greg Anderson, after a cricket match in Melbourne in February. Anderson was then shot dead by police.

During the discussion, Hildebrand asserted that there was no excuse for not reporting child abuse and that family violence victims needed to be empowered to leave their partners.

Ms Batty was preparing to appear on the show and was listening through her headpiece when she heard the panel discussing the laws.

She said she was “horrified” by the views of the panel and in particular Joe Hildebrand’s ignorance of the issues surrounding domestic violence.

“Can you imagine me, having my child murdered, and them (talking about domestic violence) like that?

“If Luke hadn’t been murdered, I would possibly have to face going in front of a jury to see whether I should be put in prison for three years because my child experienced abuse.”

An enraged Batty addressed Hildebrand directly and said: “Do you know what happened to me? Greg had finally lost control of me and the final act of control, which was the most hideous form of violence, was to kill my son.

So don’t you ever think that if we don’t report it’s because we don’t want to. It’s because we are so scared about what might happen.”

Ms Batty blasted Hildebrand for his “misguided” comments about law changes which could make it a crime not to disclose a case of child abuse.

“I thought with Luke’s death something would come out of this that would actually show the difficulty women have in abusive relationships.”

During the panel discussion, Hildebrand had said: “Obviously you can’t help but feel a huge amount of sympathy for anyone who’s in an abusive relationship but … you have to get out, you absolutely have to get out.

“This is beyond my comprehension that again the woman who’s the victim is punished,” she said.

Today however, Hildebrand said that he stood by his view that partners should leave abusive relationships and that saying so was not “blaming the victim”.

“It is the role of every adult who is aware of children being sexually abused to blow the whistle on it; it is their job to raise the alarm,” he said.

Channel Ten executives were taken aback by the level of public outrage over Hildebrand’s comments and were forced to contend with a problem they’ve never encountered before; having an audience.

    It’s kind of what he said, after being pulled back a lot. But even then, it only looked like him backing away from his initial statement, which was blaming victims, and he didn’t sound very convinced, it was like he just wanted it all to stop. Poor victim.

    As to the measure of how much of a Total Fuckwit he is, he’s not up to the bolt or akers league yet, but given time, the skies the limit

    In theory, joe is right.
    Children should be protected from further abuse. But…and it’s a big but, it’s just not that easy, the women who leave must have serious protection, that is where it falls down.
    It’s taken this long for police to even be serious about prosecuting DV. The women might leave but they are completely alone with a piece of paper [court order] supposedly to protect them. These men do not care about that and will hunt them down, it’s their life’s mission to traumatise their own family. Maybe it’s the men who should be taken away from society? These women already know what the partner is capable of and the fear of what will happen if they leave, keeps them in line and in the home, to protect their children.

    Who do the kids have if mum is murdered and dad is in jail??

    Spot on..that and and an endless barrage or so called “reality”

    Bolt is not in the same class.

    Absolutely, his ignorant fuckwittery is stratospherically eons ahead of everyone…

    Hildebrand is quite simply an ignorant opinionated cunt masquerading as a media identity

    In theory, joe is right.

    In theory this shit dont happen but it does… I don’t understand it, this deadshit has one mode…insensitive knob. This is an excellent example of the consequences of such stupidity.

    No one here is defending Sinodinos who is either completely fucking stupid, completely fucking ignorant of a chairman’s role, or just so greedy he turned a blind eye.

    Unlike the way you Lefties defended Thomson and Williamson and Gillard (AWU)

    after repeated applications for a 457 visa from the young hildebrand fellow to my ABC, joe has, at first look, successfully received asylum at network-10 from the Limited-News monster,

    but as we can see, this has not meant young hildebrand was able to shake-off the Limited-News mentality, which will be deeply ingrained in young hildebrand, dog help him, and no amount of hanging-out with `ita` will help,

    the so-called `journalism` that will be practiced on his `show` will be much along the lines of Limited-News standard clap-trap, and while l haven`t checked, l strongly suspect by the advertising, that young hildebrands `show` is a Limited-News production, just like boltreportland,

    so don`t expect any better 🙂

    It took me 23 years to get my mother to leave my father … and just eight weeks for my sister (seven years my junior) to talk her into going back to him …

    … a few weeks later when I got the phone call from Mum that he’d done it again (I lived a two minute drive away) …

    … I got there to find my mother cowering in a corner, covered in blood, there was food and smashed crockery all over the kitchen and my old man calmly drinking another beer … I kicked him off the chair, picked him up and held him against the wall with my forearm against his neck … I promised to kill him if he touched my Mum again … he never did …

    my sister stills denies either Mum or me got belted up … denial is an art form for some people …

    People like Hildebrand should belt up ..!

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Bolt is not in the same class.

    So where would you rate him, egg … higher or lower? And of course – on what scale …

    unfortunately that is the only way to deal with `some`people(usually-cowards) TB, and the system, to which hildebrand clings, fails victims all the time, when l was a kid, there was a wife-beater down the street, when the wife and kids were screaming in the middle of the night, the cops were called by the neighbors, but they couldn`t do `anything`/`much` back in those days, this happened two or three times,

    what finally stopped the basher was the neighbors(few solid fellows with tyre irons and cricket bats) grabbing the basher when he came home one evening, `promising` along the same lines as you did,

    yep, it worked, for the remaining years in the street, no more battered kids and wife, and the neighbors kept an eye out for`em too,

    neighbors did more for those kids and wife than the system ever did,

    as l have said before, the `retribution` factor is missing, those that haven`t had to `sort`out thugs before, just don`t have a grip on the reality of these situations

    Indeed, Tbag …

    What annoyed me is how he was so “charming” to family and friends … and they never seemed to “suspect” … I find that baffling still …

    And the memories never seem to fade much either …

    Ouch 😦

    I promised to kill him if he touched my Mum again … he never did …

    TB that is horrible mate I can’t begin to imagine how fucked up that is. 😦

    This fuckwit Hilderbrand can never understand the insensitive stupidity of his comments and the effect on others. Like Bolt he is a pathological, adversarial narcissist, devoid of empathy antagonistically motivated by ego rather than any cause of greater good.

    Not for too long as there appears to be a certain Fox circling the TEN carcass at the moment.

    “proving jesus was a white man”

    Well he was a semite, so probably not black. He was also male, privileged (lord), rich (kingdom of heaven), and middle-aged (30 was middle-aged back then).

    So he was a rich, privileged, middle-aged, white man, therefore responsible for everything that’s wrong with the world. 😉

    What a horrendous pile of steaming supposition.

    I suppose teh bible is actually the holy word of god too, right? 🙄

  28. April 4, 2014 1:16 pm

    It’d be easier to find definitive proof of Jesus being a Mexican lawnmower person.

    The one you attempt to define with absolutes was derived from 2nd hand (at best) anecdotal mutterings from vested interests over 2000years ago; hardly reliable sources.
    As for the whole ‘kingdom of heaven’ tripe, well anyone could make up such shit about themselves & no one could prove otherwise (given the same standards of proof expected by religion).

    Oral history has some credibility and the semite in question was probably over-endowed with religious genes.

    Ha…I thought Tony meant that his own comment was ‘earnest’; not mine.

    Obviously I knew his defense of foxtard news was semi sarcastic. My response should be read as similar sentiment.

    But yeah, Haha, I’m just another ‘earnestly religious atheist’, you really got me there. I’ve never heard that one before. Not believing in myth is such a religion, yeah.

    sounds like some teabag has got that backwards dunny,

    when we look back at history and all the dogs,
    the incan dogs, the viking dogs, greek dogs, egyptian dogs, roman dogs, most people are actually atheists, and don`t believe in any of those dogs,

    pope-loving teabags have become unhinged because atheists have added `one-more` dog to that list
