The political quad that rules Australia

The political quad that rules Australia. By Lyle Shelton.

From New South Wales Liberal Deputy Leader Matt Kean all the way through the political swamp to Greens Leader Adam Bandt, there is not a cigarette paper’s width that separates their ideology. …

This Red/Teal/Blue/Green colour-wheel-quad wants to shut down coal mines, but not fringe ideological movements inside our schools.

This is a political class that needs media advisers to ensure the mainstream media can be spoon-fed like a publicity arm for quad ideas. It’s a media arm led by the ABC, cashed up with $1.3 billion a year from taxpayers.

ABC censorship for big government

Free speech is out. Ideas are enforced through Cancel Culture. Anti-discrimination laws are weaponised to protect the hurt feelings of the regime. …

Repetition plus cancelling the alternatives works, unfortunately:

Willingly or reluctantly, members of the public are swallowing the propaganda relentlessly beamed into their homes and smartphones.

This is particularly the case in our rich inner-city suburbs where affluence has dulled senses and insulated hip pockets from reality.

Battlers in the burbs rarely hear alternative views unless they are watching Senators Matt Canavan, Claire Chandler, Alex Antic, or conservative minor party players howling at the moon on Sky After Dark. …

If only everyone watched Sky from 5pm to 10pm weeknights or from 9am to 11am Sundays. The nation’s problems would be solved. But, let’s face it, Sky doesn’t move the dial at election times and the quad knows it. …

Only one class is represented in the media and government, and even the Liberal Party is going along. The rest of us have no effective leader, voice, or parliamentary representation.

Instead of tacking away from its leftward list under Malcolm Turnbull and Scott Morrison, the federal Liberals are continuing to be blown along by the wind of Woke.

So successful has the Left been, traditional Liberal constituencies in the big end of town and the leafy inner suburbs are on board. Somewhere along the way, these former blue-ribbon electorates merged with the ideology of universities and the education system, both of which have been busy brainwashing a generation.

It appears that new Liberal Leader Peter Dutton, despite his sometimes conservative instincts, is spooked by this institutional realignment.

Early signs are not good. The courageous and transformational leadership our nation needs is not going to come from the Coalition any time soon.

Who wants to risk being labelled a denier, bigot, or transphobe by standing up to the media, the academy, or big tech?

Adam Bandt is the moral force behind the quad and is leading our nation on the road to ruin.

Sadly, it is hard to see a way out of quad groupthink apart from a catastrophe causing us to come to our senses.

Rampant inflation, an unstable electricity grid, and gender-confused kids point to a looming economic and social crisis.
