Now to all of those who live in places like New South Wales and Victoria who put up with weak, namby-pamby local governments who leave their local councillors to elect their mayors for one year terms: Queensland as does the Northern Territory - clearly something about the North directly elects its mayors. Ron had been mayor for something like eighteen years - a popular Irishman.
She and Clementine Ford are both of them well worth looking up for their social commentary and strong views. She said some things that the…other side of the internet…. In a way it was funny, the ideological positions we were all taking — except that a woman got personally threatened and that is where my tolerance ended.
The war artist What did happen on her page was a hate-fest of utter foulness, similar to what happened to Yassmin Abedel-Magied last year. It was actually upsetting to read and view.
Deveny was given rape and death threats, and everything else besides. She was doxxed and people actually turned up to her house to threaten her. I hear the police are going to be charging a lot of people over various things here.
So I was privately contacted by a few of the haters via messenger, I decided to answer one and see where it went. Time to do new things! Some dude hiding and being angry. I will give the text. Honestly i have not read them. This is what does my head in.
You jump to the defense of a woman who you say receives personal slurs.
She slurred and defamed Australian war heroes calling them invaders rapists and murderers. Why do you choose to support her and not them? I hope that one day you attend a war memorial and truly take in what so many man and women paid the ultimate sacrifice for.
You are making a lot of assumptions about a lot of things Jarrett: Enlighten me as to which assumption is wrong. Wait…how old do you think i am?
We have similar ideologies in that we both want to support our own causes. The application of that is a bit different though. I can understand and respect you are interested and passionate about this one.
Whereas the things i will go the throat about are a bit different. I do have issues with the barrage of misogynistic abuse and horrifically vile attacks on her appearance and morals. No one on these threads are having a discussion about the comments.
Which are inflammatory and the discussion should be happening. They are instead telling her she is too ugly to rape. I at a loss as to why people do that. And as soon as someone calls me a bushpig they lose the moral high ground there a bit Jarrett: I find it interesting that you jumped to the defense of a woman who was copping as you put it, personal slurs, but you and many others like you fail to address the catalyst that got her to that point.
Which part of the anzac tradition though?Marxist class analysis, however, lives on, in relative obscurity but with some punch where it is translated into labour movement practice. This is an important book for the left, a well-argued reply to the end-of-Marxism cheer squad. Deveny’s schtick is to leverage her own allegedly humble origins to put shit on "bogans" for the entertainment of The Age‘s middle class audience, which sounds like the opposite of anything I’d want to define as progressive.
She is, as a friend put it to me, "prolifically mean", mocking the sensibilities of anyone with the bad sense to live beyond the extent of the tram lines.
