For all his hot air and tough-boy, blue-collar posturing, Federal Labor MP Mark Latham turns out to have a glass jaw a toddler could smash a fist through. Latham can dish it out, but he sure as hell can't take it. Latham's brusque act hides an intellectual paperweight, whose airhead bluster puts him alongside the likes of Hugh Mackay in resentful, leftie "we hate life and ourselves" gasbagging.
Today's edition of The Age printed the text of his epic crybaby speech in parliament last week. It contained an assload of priceless, hypocritical, self-righteous bilge. This is just too easy to give a Fisking.....
Strangely, Latham doesn't detail these "demands". And it's a hoot for a Labor MP to talk of media lackeys, self-interested MPs, and interests. Coz we all know the independent media types Phillip Adams and Hugh Mackay aren't Labor lackeys, that Clive Hamilton runs a completely unbiased think tank, that Duncan Kerr isn't a self-interested politician, and that the (f)arts community and trade unions aren't "special interests".
What a twat: I seem to recall Labor giving us double-digit unemployment when they were in office (which I guess isn't as important as saying you care about workers, even while you're destroying their jobs). They did fuck-all about Aboriginal health or the "reconciliation" process in thirteen years, yet Latham feels qualified to lecture the current government on race relations. The real corker is his mention of migrants. Because we all know Labor politicians never say anything bad about migrants, don't we?
Yeah, I guess we should throw his ass in jail before he's been convicted of anything. What happened to all that labor civil-liberties and justice palaver?
Well the fuckwit who slandered Kirby lost his position and had his reputation pummelled by the press and the public, so he hasn't exactly escaped scott-free. And who the fuck are these "social reformers"?
Classic Mackay-ism. Big, emotive and quite meaningless sloganeering somewhat devoid of context or examples. Ah well. Depth of argument isn't Latham's strong suit.
I seem to recall him talking specifically about a certain group who would refuse a job because they didn't like it. Well I hate to break it to you Cecil, but I would class these people as "job snobs". Tsk, tsk. Taking out-of-context is naughty, Mr. Latham. What was it you were saying about proper behaviour?
Latham and his Labor goons, with their multi-million dollar parliamentary pensions, their insular, bloated, branch-stacking party-structure and relentless championing of unaccountable bureaucratic regulation, are now whining about a ruling class. What a sick joke.
Oh, these would be the same working people who support government policy over illegal immigration? The same ones who've voted you out of power since 1996? How dare these bastards not challenge the power structure and vote Labor!!! Don't these brainwashed scum know what's good for them???
(And does anyone else snigger at the likes of millionaire champagne leftists and red-tape enthusiasts like Latham, Keating, Hawke and Phillip Adams lecturing anybody about power and privilege?)
You'd think these thick-as-pigshit lefty whiners would come up with a new riff occasionally. Here we go again: Federal Labor policy is deeply unpopular with voters. But rather than party-hack dickheads like Latham admit they are totally out of touch with the real world, they lament that we are all becoming mindless, brainwashed robots under the terrible, secret influence of the Nazi Liberal Party.
Classic Mackay-ism: disguise the complete irrelevance of your own sorry-ass party, and your huge unpopularity at election time with some bland waffling about us all losing our true soul. News dude: you've lost three fucking elections in a row. Do you think, just maybe, that something stinks about the way you guys are doing things?
Here's a test for you Marky: give me an example of the government being "beyond criticism" or "beyond condemnation". People with your opinions seem remarkably free to speak them anywhere they choose. You seem to be confusing censorship with people exercising their rights to call you an idiot when you say something stupid. Sorry to disappoint you pal, but this aint Singapore - we're free to criticise who we want, when we want. Grow some testicles, you loudmouth wimp.
Yeah, the PM defends our current constitutional system. What a bastard!! And fancy him agreeing with our most powerful and most important ally - the Americans. Has he no shame? He should be doing what our brave, visionary leader Paul Keating did: sign secret defence deals with our lovely genocidal Indonesian-Junta buddies. I guess this is the Labor idea of leadership.
And snivelling Labor windbags like you are in no position to lecture anyone about sovereignty, seeing as you plan to sign it away by signing every idiotic UN petition you can get your hands on, open our borders to people smugglers and presumably go back to your old habit of coddling Asian tyrants.
The union movement is representative of "community"? It doesn't even represent the workforce anymore.
Well Mark, you practically had a seizure when somebody called you a "jerk" in parliament. You accuse Howard of "sycophancy" for supporting our most important ally, yet you are silent about the support your enlightened, progressive, brave party gave to genocidal psycho General Suharto. Where was your big, brave, dissenting-voice-of-the-people then, you slimy hypocrite?
Attention all stupid people: Pauline Hanson is no longer in parliament
Mark Latham, you are a weak-kneed chickenshit of the first order: you can't give any examples of such "censorship". All you fucking weasels do is cry all day because evil non-Labor people have the temerity to criticise your policies. Like I said: grow some balls, Dame Edna.
What this means of course - in Latham's pathetically tortured, craven parlance - is the government puts forth its policies, and a majority of people vote for them. This cannot - in the mind of the out-of-touch idiot-left - be a display of a free, democratic population. Rather, it is always the sign of decay in our society's democratic process. Seems the likes of Latham are in favour of democracy except when they lose elections.
He also doesn't seem able to explain one glaring problem with the "Howard is dividing us!!!" argument: if you Labor twats were ruling us benevolently - and we were all marching hand-in-hand to a glorious Keating-governed future - why the fuck were you dickheads utterly destroyed in the 1996 election?
<...sound of crickets...>
Sure. There is a progressive consensus, yet you idiots still can't win elections. I would have thought there was a message in there somewhere. How is it if we're all supporting this evil, racist government, that the "progressive consensus in Australian politics is holding up remarkably well". You can't have it both ways. Then again, logic aint your strongpoint.
What fucking "progressive consensus"??? The coalition has won three elections in a row, you asswipe.
Interesting concept of social division Latham uses, considering the policies had overwhelming public support. Get over it, you loser.
What a fucking pathetic reprobate. Our government determines policy here. They are representatives of the Australian people, who voted for them knowing they had such policies
No, he agrees with their policy and wants to support them. Don't you understand the difference, you meathead?
And besides, every time some Gaddafi-loving, Saddam-apologist UN employee criticises Australia, how come you Labor weasels can't wait to say "how may lick your asshole, oh master?", "where do we sign your treaty our public doesn't want?". Or more often, "how may we abase ourselves and apologise to the offence we have caused your glorious organisation?". You chickenshit, pants-pissing bastards need to fucking grow a spine before you lecture anyone about grovelling to foreign interests, you limp, gutless fucks.
Yet you seem perfectly content to do this yourselves. You're so desperate to suck on the politically-correct rectum of the UN, you seem to forget about your lofty principles on sovereignty, or looking after the best interests of your own country. God help us if you whimpering, spineless bastards get to represent our country before the world.
Excuse me while I barf. It's hard to believe this hare-brained rabble is the party of Ben Chifley.
We've already got one from your electorate.
Sometimes you wonder exactly what planet most judges come from. This cockhead and his fuckslut mother were on TV tonight, with idiot-boy saying he had no responsibility whatsoever for this incident.
should have killed you, you little cunt. I'm hoping he breaks into your
house and bashes your fucking head into a pulp. Hopefully, afterwards
he'll fall over in your house, break a fingernail, and sue your ass for
personal injury. That would be true justice.
