No-mates Greens are sounding desperate

Caption: The major parties react to the Greens’ overtures.

For years the Greens were one of those wacky minor parties, like the Monster Raving Loony Party, who hung around the fringes of politics, stinking the place up with the reek of stale bong smoke and patchouli. Every now and again, one of their candidates would be as amazed as anyone else when some quirk of a complex preference deal handed them a Senate seat. In general though, Australians regarded them with bemused tolerance, a bit like that weird aunty with all the cats, who insists on bringing her paleo vegan mung bean casserole to family occasions.

Then the Greens edged into the mainstream consciousness: not by any dint of their appeal to Australian voters, but mostly because of the accelerating takeover of the mainstream media by humanities graduates. Inculcated with the same Marxist drivel as the Greens, and insular to a fault, journalists’ collectives like the taxpayer-funded ABC mistake the lunatic policies of the Greens for “the national sentiment” – and why wouldn’t they? After all, none of them has ever met someone who voted for Tony Abbott.

With the relentless cheerleading of the media behind them, the Greens reached their high-water mark in 2010, when they captured a total 13% of the vote – almost all of it concentrated in the wealthy inner suburbs of Melbourne and Sydney, and to a much lesser extent, Brisbane and Perth.

From those lofty heights, though, it’s all been downhill for the Greens. Now it seems that they’re starting to get a little desperate. Quote:

Who is Lushington D. Brady?

Well, a pseudonym. Obviously.

But the name Lushington Dalrymple Brady has been chosen carefully. Not only for the sum of its overall mien of seedy gentility, reminiscent perhaps of a slightly disreputable gentlemen of letters, but also for its parts, each of which borrows from the name of a Vandemonian of more-or-less fame (or notoriety) who represents some admirable quality which will hopefully animate the persona of Lushington D. Brady.

No, you can’t have the refugees, Cindy

Caption: Please, please, please give me some refugees?

In a classic Bugs Bunny cartoon, Yosemite Sam, running for mayor, cynically tries to put over the baby-kissing gambit. Jacinda Ardern’s “compassionate” refugee-kissing campaign is just as cynical and hollow, as she rushes around Pacific islands bellowing, “Whaaar’s the refugees? Line up the refugees! Whaaar are the darlin’s? I’m just wild about asylum seekers!”

Unfortunately for her, the Australian government is unlikely to be as obliging as to hand over a few photogenically brown tots from Nauru, just yet – no matter what the pressers say. Quote:

Prime Minister Scott Morrison is inclined to take up New Zealand’s long-standing offer to accept 150 refugees from Nauru and Manus Island on the condition the Parliament passes a stalled bill that would ban any of those people ever coming to Australia.

It marks a turning point in Australia’s opposition to New Zealand’s offer, with the government having previously said the proposal could only be considered once the United States resettlement deal had been completed. End of quote.

In other words, this is like Porky Pig’s insurance policy that promises to pay one million dollars for a black eye…provided the accident occurs as the result of a stampede of wild elephants in your own living room, on the Fourth of July – of any year – between the hours of 3:55 and 4:00 p.m., during a hailstorm.

Theological Tuesday

In view of the struggle against Islam in our day, and the danger of losing ground in New Zealand, how about this wonderful video presentation by Ravi Zacharias who is highly regarded in the Christian world. He speaks gently and lovingly about the dilemma we face today in wishing to be both compassionate to those in need but wise in our choices as well. Maybe someone who has the power and authority to stem the flow from the UNHCR might see it and be challenged.
