Five Days in May

Five Days in May, by David Archibald. The local newspaper and the local SJWs conspired to prevent Senator Anning talking to supporters in Perth. A fascinating tale of how hard it is to even organize a public meeting if you oppose political correctness in 2019.

Some more general points form David’s article:

The same day that [the above] cartoon was published, the home of Canberra economist Dr Brian Fisher was attacked with eggs, intimidating Dr Fisher and his family. This violence was condoned, promoted and facilitated by climate loon Simon Holmes a Court, who had posted Dr Fisher’s address online. From page 1 of The Australian newspaper of 3rd May:

One of the problems with the West Australian’s promotion of violence in politics is that, once any level of violence is tolerated, there is no stopping escalation and no end to where it might stop. I recommend readers of this article lodge a complaint with the Australian Press Council.

This is not a trivial matter. Pauline Hanson was found guilty on trumped up charges in 2003 and jailed by a judge who thought she should jail Ms Hanson because of Ms Hanson’s political opinions. That wrongful, politically-motivated conviction was overturned by three judges on the Queensland Court of Appeal. In the meantime though, our fallen heroine had spent 11 weeks in jail due to that spiteful, wrongful conviction. Pauline is the nation’s first political prisoner.

Politically motivated, wrongful convictions of conservative public figures continue to this day, namely that of Cardinal George Pell. Cardinal Pell is our second political prisoner. This is like chess. The forces of darkness have taken an important piece of ours off the board — ranking higher than a bishop. Like Al Jazeera’s sting on Pauline’s party, it was years in the making.

This article quotes Tom Keneally, who wrote that “Pell got what he deserved” because he was “a notable neo-conservative,” who “had questioned climate change” and has raised only muted opposition to the “federal government’s heinous asylum seeker policy.” The persecution of Cardinal Pell dismayed a lot of Catholics, as it was designed to do. The people behind the Pell persecution have written of the need for media shaping of public perceptions.
