Leftist historical revisionism again. As Orwell predicted
A small news review in Far-Leftist e-ine "New Matilda" under the heading "CPAC & The High Court: Fighting For Australia’s Future" caught my eye. Below is its introduction:
"As the basic freedoms of all Australians are whittled away, conservatives met to chant ‘send her back’. Stuart Rees reports.
Two events in early August cast a shadow over Australia’s supposed fair go, human rights respecting democracy. The American Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) held a meeting to fight to ‘protect the future’; and the High Court ruled that the federal government may restrict the right of public servants to express political views, thereby upholding a decision to sack a public servant for anonymously criticizing her employer, the Department of Immigration.
Speakers at the CPAC meeting included Fox News commentators, gun-owning enthusiasts from the US National Rifle Association, former PM Tony Abbot, One Nation state politician Mark Latham and Britain’s Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage. In Sydney in the wake of mass shooting in El Paso Texas and Dayton Ohio, the participants arrived following Trump rants about Congresswomen of the wrong colour going back to where they came from. Farage had been invited in the context of his support for English nationalism, racism and opposition to Europe.
Down With ‘Socialism’
Although advertised as fighting for Australia’s future, the conservatives’ future only emerged in comments concerning an agreed enemy, a mirage-like ghost called ‘socialism.’"
"I stopped reading at that point. If the 20 million killed by Stalin in the Soviet Union and the 6 million killed by Hitler were a mirage, I don't know what real human beings look like. Socialism is a dread malady of the human brain that seems to be forever lurking in the brains of a substantial number of the population. It is no ghost. It is a dread enemy to be opposed at every step.
And Bill Shorten's range of proposed new taxes and regulations was an unambiguous step towards it. It was only the solid conservatism of my fellow-countrymen in North Queensland that blocked it. In the recent Federal election, Shorten did not get one seat outside Queensland's Southeast corner. That was enough to sink him. We sank Gough Whitlam in the same way. Shorten would have been a perfect Soviet apparatchik
