How does hate and hysteria help?

If you’ve managed to avoid the cesspit of social media so far this year, a quick word of advice – stay away. 

In the first handful of days of this new decade, we’ve seen intense bashing of our PM Scott Morrison, calls for his resignation, and threats to boycott all Murdoch media.  

This is the same irrational mob who set about getting Alan Jones sacked from 2GB are seeking to replicate a campaign in the UK which saw certain Murdoch-owned papers bullied out of entire cities. 

They ranted: “Australians are in an abusive relationship with our own federal govt, and like many living with abuse we’re all at certain risk of being killed if we cannot escape the violence. If not now, then certainly sooner than we imagine. Let that f***ing sink in.” (Actually, they posted that entire diatribe in caps but you get the idea).  

You know hatred of our democratically elected government has reached peak lunacy when two activists publicly boast about trespassing on Morrison’s family home, say they planned to “s*** in his pool” and post a video saying they have “no remorse”.  


This is what you get when our national broadcaster loses its grip to the point that the chief political reporter is dropping f-bombs on Twitter. 

Sanity has not only left Aunty. It’s exited the country.  

It’s the sixth of January and the politics of fear and hysteria is already in unbridled, unrestrained and violent swing.  

It’s no better in the US, mind you, where a Yale psychiatrist has suggested a 72-hour hold on Trump.  

The left is in its dizzy element.  

Their heads are spinning, Exorcist style.  

The left is sickly feeding off the bushfire crisis sweeping Australia, recruiting new activist soldiers.  

No common sense required. 

There is no civility, no sanity and no interest in discussion. This is all about tribal narratives, hatred, division, and extremist agendas.
