Australian public broadcaster, the ABC, censors conservative comments about its programs
I don't know if you put yourselves through the pain of watching Q and A every Monday night but I certainly do. It's important to me to know just what our leftist brothers and sisters are thinking and this forum is one of the best for exposing the enemy within.
Shame though about the distracting left wing graffiti that fills the bottom of the screen from start to finish -- and how it has become a little competition for the Marxists and alike to try and get their leftard comment or quip up on national television.
I have been trying for years under my twitter handle of @zegcartoonist but no matter how benign or relative, polite, direct or humorous and even brief, I have never been successful. I assume that this is because the twitter feed is moderated by your typical ABC employee/s who have no interest in freedom of speech or democracy but rather use this unbridled power to make sure that only their mates' voices are heard, and no doubt I am not in the clique!
I had to test the theory so I created another twitter account and under this new and unknown name, I tweeted a very lefty style comment. It was up within seconds. The next week using the same twitter account I put up some common sense and witty tweets but this time from a conservative view, no need to tell you but not one posted.
Have been at it now for weeks under the new name and it seems that my new identity has now been labelled "Conservative-NOT FOR BROADCAST". Of course they will tell you that it's all in my head and that all tweets posted on screen are decided on merit and value to the discussion, etc etc. Well, that is true but what they won't admit is that the discussion is always one sided and rarely will a counter political point slip through. Any regular viewer of the weekly show could not doubt this claim.
I've been wanting to do this cartoon for a while now and I hope that it finds its way to Mark Scott, and the Twitter commies at AUNTY that think that they are getting away with their bias on the taxpayers' dollar. Things are going to change at the THEIR ABC soon and we will see objectiveness and balance returned to our public broadcaster before the place is sold.
Please be my guest. Tweet this cartoon, post it, share it, I don't care anymore, I just what balance back at OUR ABC!!!!

Am I the only one who is just a bit miffed at $450k of SA taxes being used to lure one of the world's RICHEST rock bands to play here? They were touring anyway so why the taxpayer bribe? What is it with ALP leaders and Rock Bands? I think that they are all frustrated rock stars themselves. Had no musical talent so they got into politics instead!
Surely that money would have been better spent on genuine government services such as aged care etc. Okay I get the whole tourism dollar angle but die hard fans will travel anywhere to see the Stones and like I said, THEY WERE COMING ANYWAY!.
This was just another populist move and another shining example of Socialism at work..... SPENDING OTHER PEOPLES MONEY FOR ONES OWN GLORY!

You got to hand it to Bill Shorten for making political news on a usually slow Saturday. You also have to acknowledge his testicular fortitude by taking his populist stance on the legalisation of Homosexual Marriage to an audience of devoted Christians from the ACL. Firstly sermonising from the lectern like a Church Pastor and then politely telling them that they are wrong and don't understand the values of their own religious dogma!
I mean it was nothing less than a bloke going to a Hell's Angel Rally dressed as Boy George!!!
I know several of my more centre right friends and some of my ALP voting die hard mates (yes I do have them!) would like to see a fair dinkum referendum on the issue and I am sure that it is only a matter of time for this to happen, a reality that Hardcore Conservatives like me will have to accept.
I think a plebiscite on the issue would fail right now and that's why it hasn't happened but as we steadily fall down the "progressive rabbit hole" in this country, it is a sure bet that the next generation will experiment with the idea. I will say that this issue was the one thing that Julia Gillard got right, in my humble opinion.

After months of hearing the Greens decrying the Government over its ever toughening stance against the Islamist Death Cult in the Middle East, and everywhere taking action against the West, as if Abbott and even the ALP were in some great American driven conspiracy to alienate the Islamic population of Australia & the world.
The Greens openly telling us all not to refer to terrorists and such, as this will only anger them more and that somehow we (the West) have created this cult's Caliphate and determination to wipe out the West and all infidels.
If there was ever a case of "My enemies enemy is my friend" then the sickening support that the Greens have for these murderous barbarians is such a case.
I do wonder though, that even after an Islamist attack on Ottawa, a centre of democracy that is so very much like ours and in a country who society, values and history we share, such as Canada, that the Greens will finally see the light and understand that their lives and their freedom are as much as being threatened and taken as that brave Canadian soldier who lost his life today?...........
I still wonder what it will take for them to understand that there are only two sides in this War and that the choice to be on the other side is suicide!

The Left (and even some on the Right) are crying and mourning the loss of this Great Australian Icon, and applauding his great contribution to the political landscape and the very fabric of Australian society. Indeed Edward Gough Whitlam AC, QC, did make massive changes to the Australian psyche, of this there is no doubt, BUT was it all to the benefit of us all?
I don't mince words, there is little doubt in my opinion that Gough was a Communist. He had obviously studied the Red Bible and in particular the bit in the Communist Manifesto that talks about the needed Long March through the Institutions and how the minds of the young must be captured and manipulated via the Educational Institutions.
The problem was of course, "how to get the kids of lower socio-economic means (traditional Labor voters) into these institutions for this social engineering to take place?" MAKE UNIVERSITY FREE!
Of course it is not free as it is the taxpayer who fronts up with the initial contribution and then of course the student must pay it back when he or she is a high flying graduate. After 4-6 years of leftwing propaganda, is it any wonder that the media and the courts are full of little Marxist bastards!
It is needless to say that universal healthcare does appear to be a sign of a society that "cares" for its population. I would be the first to agree that if you cannot afford health care then the state to which you are contributing taxes to should make it affordable for you or your loved ones to stay alive, that's civil,....
BUT what about those that can afford health cover and those who have never contributed taxes? These are the ones that must be made to be dependent on the State and thus when the next election comes around, who will they remember as being the benevolent provider of "FREE HEATHCARE"? THE ALP, that's who! Why to this day has no "Conservative" Prime Minister has ever had the GUTS to means test Medicare is beyond me?
The School Cadet Corps was and still is a much needed part of the development of our youth. The skills gained via discipline and individual achievement along with a sense of national pride are something that cannot be exclusively offered in the classroom. This fact is something well known to those in the Private Education Sector, who continue the practice.
ALAS generations have missed out on this valuable learning and growth tool, as it was E G Whitlam that disbanded the Cadet Corps in the Public School System. I guess the logic for doing so would again take us back to the passages in the Communist Manifesto that tells us that "self pride, individualism and the skills needed to possibly form a successful militia are never to be encouraged".
I don't want to bash a dead man, it's not my style and I have written and drawn about just what I think are the Politics and influence of the Whitlam era several times before. I will not be a hypocrite now just because the man has passed away. I did not know him personally and I doubt that I would have liked him anyway with the knowledge of the destructive path that his reforms have taken this country down. Generational destruction that will take generations to repair, Yet I will say, Rest in peace Gough Whitlam and my sincere condolences to his family and loved ones on their loss today. You had a good long life and will never be forgotten and in a way isn't that what we all want? Well, I do but only if I am remembered for doing good!
I had forgotten that Gough withdrew support for the cadets but Zeg has a military background more recent than mine so he obviously felt it. The Fraser government promptly re-formed the cadets when Whitlam was booted out. They now have full army support and are even given army camo to wear.

What ever did happen to the Australian sense of humour?
Liberal Senator and Federal Minister for Finance, Mathias Cormann is quite willing to take the piss out of himself by quoting a famous Californian Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger line that he used when attacking his opposite number on their fiscal credibility, knowing that cartoonists and comedians and media commentators everywhere in Australia are constantly comparing him with the Austrian actor come Politician because of the similarities in their strong accents.
I have never heard or read that Cormann felt in anyway racially vilified for it and that's because he's more Australian than his Australian born knockers who have forgotten that being Australian is to have a robust (that word again) sense of humour and always being able to laugh at yourself.
Well let's see if Federal ALP Leader Bill Shorten has such a sense of humour also, how Australian is he, hmmmm?

Not much needed to be said about this one. As usual the push for democracy against the Communist totalitarian government of China gets pushed back in the news feeds and hardly mentioned at all. Seems that there are more pressing threats facing the West.... really!?!
Anyway, it's but another cartoon that you won't see on their ABC's, The Insiders!

Quite a mixed bag of priorities and issues, as I have seen them, this week. Of course it is Mental Health Awareness Week once again and as with very year there is a lot of important and much needed discussion and debate about this growing national epidemic.
Pollies make more promises to do more etc etc and then the week is over and it's time to move on to whatever the next awareness week is. Really quite an insult to this very serious social problem and it is something that should be discussed and dealt with on a daily basis until the situation is under control, in my opinion.
Those Islamist maddies continuing to dominate our media and the minds of our leaders, and I can't really blame anyone for that other than this death cult. I guess I am suffering from a bit of burn out but hey, I'm lucky, I still have my head so I shouldn't complain.
Of course the issue is totally off the radar for the gangrenous Greens who's continued contribution is to childishly mock the Prime Minister for being a solid and decent citizen.
ALP has nothing to do but look sombre and supportive because even a socialist comrade like Shorten knows and understands evil when he sees it.
Then there's our old mate Clive Palmer who has finally shown all of his cards, only to reveal that his entire reason for wanting to be a MP was to get revenge on Campbell Newman and the QLD LNP for not helping him out with some mining issues a few years ago. I know one thing about Clive, he may have friends but they are all new ones, the man has no old friends!
So why the fighting kangaroos symbolism? Well. just a few day ago a bloke just a few streets from where I live, caught this on video and now it's all over the country and the world. It is a quintessential Aussie moment, that I wanted to mark. See here

Just a little comment on all of the madness circling us at the moment. I find it all a bit cliche to be drawing terrorist's and burqua's etc. After all, just about every other cartoonist in the country is doing that daily. I wanted to focus on the very loud enemy within, the home-grown threat that has been ripping and distorting and terrorising our way of life long before the mad Islamists ever came to our attention. So get in line ISIL, ISIS or IS or whatever we are to call you, because the experts at destroying the West are definitely ahead of your game, the experts...THE LEFT!!!
