Peter Dutton Launches New Attack on Australian Media!

September 3, 2015

*****AN EXCLUSIVE GUTTER TRASH EXCLUSIVE INVESTIGATION REPORT AND EXCLUSIVE…!!!*****

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has escalated his criticism of media outlets he says are waging a “jihad” against the government, describing the response to an aborted Australian Border Force operation in Melbourne as “hysterical” and “ideologically driven.”

HYSTERICAL!

Two days after he accused Fairfax Media and the ABC of trying to “bring the government down”, Mr Dutton has told a radio interview that “segments of the media” were “frustrated and angry” that the government was having “success” with Operation Sovereign Borders.

“All I can say is the reaction to the Australian Border Force operation in Melbourne was hysterical by some of these media outlets and it’s hard to seek an explanation for that,” Mr Dutton told 2GB’s Ray Hadley show.

BORDER FARCE

Australian Border Force officials were originally scheduled to take part in the ill-fated Victoria-police led mission “Operation Fortitude” on the streets of Melbourne last weekend before protests turned the whole thing to custard and it was cancelled before it had even began.

“They [the media] run things. They don’t check with my office beforehand,” an enraged Mr Dutton told 2GB.

“A lot if it is about their frustration and anger with the government over the success that we’ve had around Operation Sovereign Borders, stopping boats, running detention centres and people have got an ideological opposition to that.

“Well I’ve got news for these people. The vast majority of Australians support the government’s work to keep these boats stopped, to stop people drowning at sea.”

The outburst comes a day after Prime Minister Tony Abbott and frontbenchers Josh Frydenberg and Michael Keenan distanced themselves from the “jihad” remarks made by Mr Dutton in relation to his conspiracy theory that there is some orchestrated campaign by Fairfax and the ABC to bring down the Abbott government.

In a second interview, after his Ray Hadley appearance, Mr Dutton would no longer be drawn on the “jihad” jibe.

Journalists at a media conference in Brisbane asked Mr Dutton if his colleagues had not supported his comments because he had gone too far.

“I don’t agree with your characterisation. Comments about other people, you can put it to them,” Mr Dutton said.

    ‘We wear Minister Dutton’s criticism with pride. We believe he and his colleagues are hypocrites; that they are bad for the nation; and that they should be destroyed at the ballot box.’

    It doesn’t bother me that Fairfax is so clearly anti Abbott.

    It’s the right of the owners to figure out how to carve out a place in the media market and if they think publishing articles that attract centre left approval will help, then good for them.

    On the other hand, there are so many instances of partisan left opinions and reporting on the ABC, at taxpayer expense, that’s a disgrace.

    I do not recall Fairfax saying much when

    1. The ALP trashed the budget
    2. When the ALP locked up 2,000 kids
    3. When 1,500 drowned due to ALP policies
    4. when auto sales went from 25% of the market in 2006 to 10% in 2013
    5. 50,000 people came here by boat

    But Fairfax is making comments now.

    I know you think I have a lot of influence nationally, Walter, but its just not true … maybe using Nazi in a radio interview is why Tony Abbott doesn’t have much influence either …

    Can’t wait to get back into power can you TB. You locked up 2,000 kids last time. What next this time? 4,000 kids?

    And Newscorpse don’t say much about Abbott’s Raiders trashing the economy AND fucking society ’til its red …

    The economy was trashed by Rudd/Gillard. The economy is more or less the same as what was handed in 2013.

    Kneel, dense as ever.

    Making demonstrably false allegations in the service of partisan denialism.

  15. September 3, 2015 3:29 pm

    Comparing IS to Nazi Germany is nothing more than Abbott overegging the pudding to kick his desperate National Security fetish down the street.

    Calling unfavourable media outlets ‘Jihadists’ is nothing more than cheapening the very thing which Abbott is attempting to conflate with the Nazis.

    Dumb AbbottCorp self flagellation.

    What false allegations? Did not the ALP lock up 2,000 kids?

    And our economy is only a little bit worse than in 2013. But in 2013 it was much worse than in 2007.

  17. September 3, 2015 3:42 pm

    Here you go, dumbass…

    ” The economy is more or less the same as what was handed in 2013.”

    None so blind…

    The economy is more or less the same. Unemployment is higher, 6.3% compared to 5.8%.

    But unemployment was at 4.3% in 2007 and 5.8% in 2013. So it got much worse under Labor.

    But what is you point? As i have said many times, facts are irrelevant. Most people will never change their vote.

    At least Abbott is not locking up 2,000 kids.

    As you’ve said before…facts are irrelevant To You .

    I doubt that candid confession would surprise anyone familiar with your ultra partisan, monocular output.

    As you’ve said before…facts are irrelevant To You .

    In 1993 when Keating ran for election as PM, unemployment was at 11%. Keating won the election in 1993 with unemployment at 11%. More than half the country voted for him when the economy was totally trashed.

    Like i said facts are irrelevant.

    …to you.

    Is it conceivable that not every person votes on single issues?

    Your statements are self defeating.

Go on say something, you'll feel better...
