Anonymous said: What's so bad about Tony Abbott?

oeroun:

oh, child. you’ve come to the right blogger.

this, is our current prime minister, tony abbott. image

he’s been in office for almost a year, now. in that time, he’s managed to piss a lot of people off. myself included. so what exactly makes him so bad?

1) he’s sexist
in regards to abortion, he’s asked “why isn’t it regarded as a national tragedy” rather than the declining life expectancy of aboriginals [x] and that it’s all about women taking “the easy way out”[x]. he’s even gone so far to say that women will never succeed more than men because “their aptitudes, abilities and interests are different for physiological reasons” [x]. let’s not forget that he thinks it’s not a woman’s right to refuse sex and that he believes it should be moderated [x]. did i mention he’s the women’s minister? [x] it’s not a joke. i wish.

2) he doesn’t like immigrants
he’s not a fan of immigrants and has been quoted saying such things as “jesus knew that there was a place for everything and it’s not necessarily everyone’s place to come to australia.” [x] let’s not forget, “i don’t think it’s a very christian thing to come in by the back door rather than the front door” [x]. you know, because there’s a queue for when you run for your life.

3) he think’s climate change is made up
he’s said (and god i wish i could make this up) “climate change is absolute crap” [x]. oh and he’s also made a comment on bushfire tragedies in australia saying “fire is a part of the australian experience” [x]. losing your home and family is definitely part of the australian experience, right tony?

4) he’s homophobic
when an 11 year old boy wrote to him about the rights of the gay community in regards to marriage and abbott wrote that he will continue to “support the existing definition of marriage”[x] not only does he refuse to take religious views out of the picture, but he wants to silence the gay community and has said “if you’d asked me for advice i would have said to have, adopt a sort of “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy about all of these things…”[x] he has also said “i probably feel a bit threatened (by homosexuality), as so many people do.”[x] yeah, and we feel threatened by you.

5) he upholds aboriginal stereotypes
about aboriginals, he’s said “there may not be a great job for them but whatever there is, they just have to do it, and if it’s picking up rubbish around the community, it just has to be done.”[x] let’s not forget that if an indigenous person can’t find work, they have no excuse because there are no “cultural excuses”[x]. oh and what does he think about the british invading australia and killing thousands of indigenous people? “western civilisation came to this country in 1788 and i’m proud of that… [x] good job.

6) his view on homelessness
"we just can’t stop people from being homeless if that’s their choice."[x] need i say more?

7) reduction of work rights
"compulsory paid maternity leave? over this government’s dead body, frankly"[x]

8) his way with words
what does he think about the crisis in syria? “it’s not goodies versus baddies, it’s baddies versus baddies”[x] what did he say when he posed closely with a group of teenage girl netballers? “a bit of body contact never hurt anyone”[x] how does he promote his campaign? “if you want to know who to vote for, i’m the guy with the not bad looking daughters”[x] his reaction to a dead australia soldier? “shit happens.”[x] i’ve saved the best/worst until last “no one, however smart, however well educated, however experienced, is the suppository of all wisdom.”[x] ew. let’s hope not.

there are about another thousand pieces of evidence i could use to explain why this man is bad for our country. like how his daughter has received an art scholarship that wasn’t known to other students before she received it [x], while he makes funding cuts to universities[x]. not to mention that when a radio listener called in to comment on how she managed to make ends meet because of his pension cuts by working on as a phone sex operator, he winked[x]. this guy is basically the scum of the earth.

and to close, i’ll leave you with this website. abbotisms is a site that showcases his best worst statements he’s been quoted saying. also, this video from john oliver’s “last week tonight” and it’s brilliant commentary on abbott’s stupidity and overall ignorance.

i hope we’ve all learnt something today.

radicalfeministwitch:

Feminism as always been about liberating women from the patriarchy. It’s a revolution, it’s not about having the same rights that men have. I don’t want to have the same rights as they do, i don’t want to be able to rape without being put in jail, i don’t want to be the head of a big company that gain money by using slaves. i want to be liberated from a world that is ruled by men and make something new, something better.

proudly-pro-choice:

You are not a bad person for getting abortion, it doesn’t matter if:

  • you were assaulted
  • your birth control failed
  • you weren’t on birth control at all
  • there is a medical issue
  • you don’t want children
  • you already have children and can’t handle another
  • you aren’t ready
  • you don’t want to be pregnant

You are never a bad person for needing an abortion. There is nothing wrong with you. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise.

You are not alone.

Today is Racist Fuckery (10.20.14): At yesterday’s protest outside the St Louis Rams game, racist fans got rowdy and physical. Who got arrested? Two of the protesters, of course. Mike Brown means we have to fight back. #staywoke

Why is obama doing nothing about this? It’s too sad there is a black president, but he doesn’t speak out about racism HUGE issue in his own country.

This picture reminded me of the picture in 1965

“Hog-spitting – not just spitting,” Tonja Bulley emphatically clarifies.

“He just hog-spit at my baby. He hog-spit. He took everything out of him and spit in my daughter’s face. She is a minor. That’s the absolute worst thing you can do, when you spit on another human being. She was just saying ‘No justice, no peace’ and he hog-spit (at) and then smacked my baby. At that time — there was no more being peaceful.”

Bulley and her daughter, Brandy were released from jail last night after being arrested by police outside the St. Louis Rams game the previous day after a violent clash with football fans.

As the Rams were completing an impressive 28-26 victory over the Super Bowl champions Seattle Seahawks, Tonja and Brandy were outside the stadium participating in a non-violent protest calling for justice for Mike Brown, and the immediate arrest of his killer, Darren Wilson.

Tonja, known affectionately to her friends as “Tiny,” continued:

“We were peacefully protesting. We were saying something that this big, tall White man did not like. He should’ve been locked up, and they did not lock him up. One slapped my daughter and another hit her with his fist. Another woman threw her drink on me – and I retaliated. I’m not coming out to fight, but I have the right to protect myself.”

Tiny would eventually get punched and knocked to the ground. “I got hit by a couple people. I have a mark behind my ear.” She was initially charged with two felonies for throwing punches after the initial altercation. No violent Rams fans were arrested.

She says the racial double-standards were apparent: “We had a right to protest without anybody interfering. When the White people protest, there are no problems. Nobody is spitting on them. When we try to do it, the media goes around and acts like we started (the fighting.) We did not start it. I peacefully protest every day in Ferguson, and it’s never a problem.”

In Ferguson, Tiny and Brandy have been protesting since Brown was killed in August, and have become unofficial members of the Lost Voices—a spirited and well-known group of young leaders who led Sunday’s protest.
