Kerri-Anne Says Climate Protesters Should Be Used As ‘Speed Bumps’

October 9, 2019

d73ed4ea007eb522373bdb5bca87f1de-747493

Australiana “icon” and banal self-entitled daytime chat show host Kerri-Anne Kennerley (aka KAK) has slammed Extinction Rebellion activists for blocking cities nationwide, saying ‘moron’ protesters should be jailed and ‘forget to feed them’.

On Wednesday, the discussion between the so-called “Studio 10 panel” consisting of an amalgam of rich white people, turned their bitter entitled pursed lips to the Extinction Rebellion protests currently taking place across the nation.

Around 100 people were arrested this week during protests staged in Australian main capital centres.

In Queensland, protesters could face jail time under the new laws floated by the State Labor government.

When asked by Channel 10 host Sarah Harris if the measures were “too extreme”, Kennerley said she felt this wouldn’t be enough.

“Personally, I would leave them all super glued to wherever they do it, like forever … the guy hanging from the Storey Bridge. Why send emergency services to look after, or get a moron down? Leave him there until he gets himself out,” she said.

“No emergency services should help them, nobody should do anything, leave them there, and you just put little witches hats around them, or use them as a speed bump.”

Harris put her head in her hands, saying “you’re going to get us into trouble!”

“Is that wrong?” Kennerley said, down the barrel of the camera.

At the end of the show, the hosts addressed the comments, with Harris saying “you were obviously not inciting violence, it was a joke.”

“Heavens no,” Kennerley replied.

Harris continued to say “you were speaking in hyperbole.”

“I was speaking like you said,” Kennerley said.

Network 10 said in a statement that Kennerley’s words were “said in jest”.

“Kerri-Anne confirmed that she was indeed speaking in hyperbole and her words were clearly a joke. There was no intent to cause offence.

Over the past few days, Studio 10 has extensively addressed a range of opinions on this subject,” a spokesperson said.

When host Joe Hildebrand suggested that activists should “come up with a protest that lasts longer than this show,” Kennerley jumped in again.

“Why don’t all you extremists go to China or Saudi Arabia and do it?”

“That’s my idea,” she said.

“If we stop doing anything to harm the environment in Australia, makes no difference. Do it where it is going to count, which is number one China, number two India, number three America. Go and do it over there.”

She’s really just a bit of a fucking mole isn’t she.

    It is outrageous that anyone would even jokingly suggest that protesters should be used as a speed bump!

    I have a low slung convertible, and any speed bumps really scrape the undercarriage.

    Leaving people glued to things makes sense to me though. It’s a free country and people should be allowed to glue themselves to things if they wish, and the heavy handed police ungluing should stop now!

    “The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer, and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.

    Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.” —

    from an Associated Press report published in The Washington Post on Nov. 2, 1922.

    You may have noticed that the predicted disaster 92 years ago did not happen, nor have other predicted catastrophes from the global-warming crowd.

    And the protesters really seem to have gone to a great deal of trouble to glue themselves to the intersection

    I say – let them continue their protest!! Stop the arrests!!

    But motorists should be able to use the road too, so my solution is that Victoria Police should invest in a few of these-

    From TomR’s tweet:

    “It will almost inevitably lead to a Turkish attack on Kurdish militias in Syria — fighters who loyally helped the U.S. destroy the Islamic State, but whom Turkey bogusly claims to be terrorists.”

    They make it sound as if the Kurds were fighting ISIS as a favour to the US. In fact, they had been fighting over territory long before the US got involved. And far from being a bogus claim, The USA, Turkey and Australia among others all have declared the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, known as the P.K.K, a terrorist organisation.

    “Scott Cam is Australia’s new national careers ambassador. Where did they get that idea?
    Watch Season Four of #UtopiaABC now on ABC iview!”

    So where did they get that idea ??????

    In the Oz today

    “We hate to break it to them, but hiring Cam is actually an idea Morrison borrowed from Labor; specifically, Kevin Rudd’s government (not an episode of ABC comedy Utopia, as some speculated). Strewth can reveal that Cam was paid $74,250 in taxpayer funds for a six-month Centrelink contract between December 7, 2009, and June 30, 2010, for “representational services”.

    A Labor press release from March 24, 2010, says: “Parliamentary Secretary for Employment Jason Clare today announced that TV tradie Scott Cam will be on hand to help launch the ‘Keep Australia Working’ Centrelink Jobs Expo on Tuesday 30 March at Mingara (on NSW’s Central Coast) — from 10am to 3pm.” At the time, Clare was the junior to employment participation minister Mark Arbib.

    The pair, plus then Labor MP for Dobell Craig Thomson, posed for a photo op with “Australia’s favourite tradie”. Arbib’s press release from March 30 says the free event was “one of more than 20 Keep Australia Working Job Expos the Rudd government is running in areas that have been hit hard by the Global Recession………………”.

    Turkish forces began a long-anticipated cross-border assault on Wednesday against the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish-led militia, in northeastern Syria.

    The dispute between Turkey and the Kurds has deep roots in regional power dynamics that have created a tangled web of interests. Further complicating the picture is the fact that the United States is an ally of both Turkey and the S.D.F., as the militia is known.

    Oh, I took that from yor link tosy 😉

    The internal review of the ALP loss of the election is provoking quite a lot of discussion among the barrackers regarding the reasons. Many barrackers blame-

    1. A dumb/uneducated electorate
    2. The concentration of the media/Murdoch
    3. Morrison/Liberal lies

    But…
    1. We have essentially the same electorate as the one that elected Rudd and Gillard. The electorate is no dumber or less educated than it was a few years ago. ALP barrackers are unable to explain why tehy were intelligent enough to vote for an ALP government but then became dumb.
    2. The mainstream media is no more concentrated now than when Gillard was PM. The mainstream media is in decline, there are endless options for information and news now. People congregate around social media, not traditional newspapers.
    3. Even if Morrison lied, the public perception of politicians is so low that there is no expectation that they will tell the truth.

    The reality is that the public did not trust Shorten (for entirely good reason) and they don’t trust the ALP.

    THe ALP needs fundamental restructuring, but the report of the hacks will shy away from that.

    But How Good is Hunger

    How Good is kicking people when they are down, or attempting to silence them

    You know, if you keep attacking poor people, they might go hungry 😦

    I wonder whether those that “go hungry” are still spending on smokes, grog and pokies.

    3 meals –
    *Cornflakes -500g – $3 & milk – 1l – $1.20 – 3 days = $1.40/day
    *3 cans tuna – $3 & bread $2.50 – 3 days = $1.90/day
    *packet pasta – $2 – & bacon, broccoli, carrots – $8 – 3 days = $3.50/day

    If people “go hungry” it isn’t because they can’t afford food, it is more likely to be a result of the price of beer and cigarettes
    —————
    The ALP lost because they couldn’t get people to trust that the party would govern in their interests.

    That results from the structure of the ALP, and all the shady dealings and behaviour that is reported in the NSW branch doesn’t stop at the Murray

    How to be a fuckwit, yomm style

    In addition, more than half of the women (53%) surveyed who had faced food insecurity said they had experienced domestic violence, while 49% said they had been sole parents at some stage in their lives.

    yea, it’s from the article, but you go ahead and continue to smear people suffering.

    Before Albanese politicised that report he should have made sure the methodology behind it was sound. One in five doesn’t pass the pub test.

    if you believe it, it is so.

    yomm, what is your point, apart from to seemingly blame people for their situation, instead of looking towards a solution?

    What is Albo’s point, apart from blaming Scott Morrison and the government for political advantage? Does he offer a solution aside from TomR’s solution to climate change: Vote Labor.

    They had quite a few solutions. Again, the sheep got sucked into voting against their interests.

    Watching pensioners cry now as they realize they’ve been had would be amusing if not for being so depressing.

    I mean, look at this moron

    Where did they get their financial info from?! I have not done a tax return for last 2 financial years! So they simply guessed my income for last 4 years!

    Maybe if they did their tax returns like everyone else … but no, it’s all Sco Mo’s fault! Vote Labor.

    It’s all going swimmingly

    AKCAKALE, Turkey — Turkish forces approached a key Kurdish-held town in northern Syria on Sunday, setting off clashes that allowed hundreds of Islamic State supporters to escape from a camp for displaced people and prompted U.S. soldiers to withdraw from a nearby base.

    Gotta see it to miss it TR … must be nice to be ignorantly well off and naive … Marie Antoinette certainly left a legacy …

    let them eat cake? *

    Is’nt that when they greased the tumbrils and sharpened Madame Guillotine? Ha, those were the days …

    * We did live off army ration packs for two weeks once … well the bits I didn’t eat brought home … oh, what fun … then off to the RSL for a few beers, play the pokies and nick a few fag ends for later …

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

    It’s all going swimmingly

    And – the ignorantly well off and naive – still “defend” the bastard – talk about blood on his hands – and a Napoleonic syndrome … (While I’m on the French Revolution theme) …

    Catch ya later – off to the latest project.

    1. essentially the same electorate as .. Rudd and Gillard .. @Tick

    3. public perception of politicians is so low .. @Tick

    2. media is no more concentrated now .. @Wrong @network nine has swallowed fairfax .. but neither seperate nor united .. Legacy outlets had know hope in hell selling blib stooten to the knifed voters of the 15-in-play electorates .. most of which are in bananaland .. still a severe hangover of the glorious knifing days.

    Are all apologists as blind?

    When it comes to government debt, the Morrison government is desperate for you to keep your eyes and ears closes and ignore the facts.
