Feel that burn, David Marr.
The man is merely relevant insofar as a case in point on how far the Left will stoop to defend their indefensible record.
The general narrative perpetuated again with clearly debunked “Marrist claims, is that Opposition Leader Tony Abbott is a sexist, thuggish brute.
(He didn’t punch any walls so get over it.” But read this, and seriously, who would blame him if he had?)
Of course, it’s actually the opposite which is closer to the truth. The man is surrounded by women, and powerful women at that.
He saves people’s lives in his free time, either as a surf life saver, or in his capacity as a yearly hands-on volunteer in some of Australia’s most vulnerable Indigenous communities.
He was clopped over the head with a woman’s clog once. And I suppose if you want to label him sexist, well then maybe he is so, because he refrained from hitting back because she was a woman.
The crap he had to deal with back in his day as president of Sydney Uni’s Student Representative council, as detailed in the link, well, it makes one admire that he had the strength to carry on.
Many lesser men would have given up.
But back to David Marr. Could the man be any more base? Fact-less innuendo, smears, not poor, but I would argue deliberately misleading research being passed off as journalism; the man has no morals and no soul.
Disgusting, and with his I-am-better-than-you attitude to boot, the faster than man is relegated to the dustbin of discourse, the better.
You know, it actually makes a blogger like me a bit mad; that that parasite can get so much attention and the rest of us pleb commentators receive little, essentially none.
And it’s no use saying, öh vell”.
It’s plainly obvious there’s a pretty big war going on between the big boys in town. And not the usual shenanigans. It’s something big. It has been for a while, and those on the Left – Gillard, Swan, Chris Murphy, Marred David,the lot of them – have steadily become nastier and nastier.
And what has that fueled? Unions thugs running down people in cars, and then suing the Opposition leader for insinuating they’re thugs.
A pox on this nation. Sure, it’s not as if modern Australia came down like manna from heaven, but it’s 2012, and enough already of this hell.
