Triggs helped Abbott — Turnbull helped Abbott — Hicks helped Abbott — the ABC’s leak obsession helped Abbott — Muslim appologists helped Abbott. The Left understands nothing and this also helped Abbott
The dramatic rise in the polls for Tony Abbott is heartening. The Left, as usual, does not understand why. Abbott is changing. He is appeasing the Left less and standing on principle. They hate him with a loathing and this drives them mad and reminds people why they got rid of Labor a year and a half ago.
The Prime Minister pointed out the bias and the disgrace Gillian Triggs has brought on herself and the Human Rights Commission. Voters understood, in spite of the reactionary support from the ABC, the ALP swinging handbags, Fairfax and the Left generally.
The Prime Minister’s honest comments about the pathetic claim by the same media that David Hicks had somehow been vindicated for joining, not one, but two terrorist organisations and shooting machine guns at the Indian Army shows that the electorate likes straight talking.
The Prime Minister’s honest comments about Muslims and the double standards of the commentariat in the name of multiculutral harmony may be at an end. People are aching for a leader to speak up and call out the traitors in our midst. They know what “Je suis Charlie” actually means.
Malcolm Turnbull’s honest comments about Triggs and a while back about the ABC’s balance was a timely reminder to Abbott supporters and Liberal backbenchers exactly what he does stand for. This is probably sufficient to blow his chances for leadership clear out of the water. Thank God and thanks Malcolm.
What an irony that Fran Kelly thinks quite the opposite. The poor woman is deluded into thinking that voters are turning back to the Liberals because Turnbull looks a shoe in to roll Abbott. Even Michelle Grattan scoffed at Fran on air, “a bit far fetched” she thought, for suggesting such an implausable idea. A priceless exchange from from “Their ABC”.
This stridency from the media makes people sit up and notice. I always think back to the 1988 Referendum, which invited us to vote ‘Yes’ on four questions. Supported by both parties and most of the media, the Australian people, smelling a rat with such collusion, gave all four of the propositions a resounding ‘No’, with their collective upturned finger. That reassured me immensely about Australian democracy and our plain ordinary, reliable common sense.
In other words, when things in the media become too shrill people become suspicious.
