This has got to be the most disgraceful and dishonest advertisement campaign by a supposedly conservative government in Australia. It is the brainchild of Minister for Womyn, Michaelia Cash (now Employment Minister). This ad is so sickening, I cannot watch it again. It depicts a Caucasian boy of about 8 or 9, who appears to abuse his sister. All actors in this misleading ad are Caucasian, and all victims are women.
A young boy slamming a door on a girl as a “joke.” A tubby tween being berated by his dad for throwing “like a girl.” A tense argument in a car.
A woman cowering, terrified, on the floor as her enraged partner looms over her, venom in his stare.
It is the confronting new government ad campaign targeting domestic violence, urging Australian men to “stop it from the start” and stamp out potential steps toward violence before they can take root. It’s the ad looking to eradicate even small and ‘minor’ disrespect, to remove the excuse that “boys will be boys.”
The $30 million campaign was unveiled by Social Services Minister Christian Porter and Minister for Women Michaelia Cash on Wednesday. The TV advertisement, titled “Respect,” travels between time periods in the life of a boy and girl, aiming to illustrate how disrespectful behaviour towards women can turn into something darker.
Miranda Devine has helpfully explained why these ideas are so very wrong. And she copped abuse from the tolerance brigade.
My sin was to point out the incontrovertible truth about domestic violence, that it is overwhelmingly concentrated in dysfunctional remote indigenous communities and public housing estates.
The response from femi-fascists was to try to get me sacked, silenced and banned from twitter.
They called for my “sterilisation”, branded me a “murder apologist”, a “troll”, a “sicko”, an ”idiot”, “a bimbo”, “a vile creature dangerous to kids”, “nasty and vicious”, “stupid”, “a disgrace”, “rabid old hatemonger”, “a typical Australian”.
“Your victim blaming has done almost as much harm to victims of Domestic Violence as the abusers,” read one email.
As if I needed another reason to toss Turnbull’s incompetent government to the kerb.
Violence against women does discriminate, starkly. It is concentrated in communities with a high indigenous population, in the Northern Territory, in impoverished rural towns, in the urban fringes where the underclass lives, where welfare has emasculated men, where unemployment is high and education poor, and where drug and alcohol abuse is rife. These are the obvious preconditions for violence.
If you want to break the cycle of violence, end the welfare incentive for unsuitable women to keep having children to a string of feckless men.
I have my bat ready to hand for the next election. I will not tolerate deceit and bastardry in the Liberal Party, nor will I tolerate the outright lies of the hard Left.
