Rockingham market bogan stall ban an encouraging sign

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Tuesday, November 30, 2010,
Fellow travellers, I found this story about a market stall being banned from the Rockingham local markets to be very heartening. While we can't be sure of exactly what the reason was, it was quite probably due to a strong sense of cultural sensitivity. The stall sold "bogan paraphernalia" after all.

The appalling sub-human redneck who flogs the vile merchandise whinged about the ban.

"If I was selling porn and bongs I'd expect them to say they don't want me there, but this is stickers and st...

The Victorian election, the Greens and the fate of the planet

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Monday, November 29, 2010,
Fellow travellers, I am deeply disturbed by the election result in Victoria. The Liberals seem to have won! And as Bob Brown said it was also the Liberal Party's fault that the Greens didn't win a seat. We would have had several now if not for Ted Baillieu's appallingly unprincipled decision.

Of course, evil capitalists and nature rapers will be rubbing their clammy hands with glee. It's a truly distressing outcome for human and non-human Victorians, as well as for the environment globally.

Kyle and club owners start "nanna state" witch hunt for Clover Moore

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Sunday, November 21, 2010,
The appalling Kyle Sandilands has declared war on beloved Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore, claiming that she is trying to destroy the city's nightlife with her anti-capitalist policies. Note the various forms of hate speech in his on air rant about Ms Moore.

''I'll get rid of that woman, you watch. Eighty-year-old woman trying to run the town. Go to the retirement village, you old clown,'' Sandilands said on his program.

As well as the obvious sexism, note the appalling ageism in this disturb...

Kristina Wong's green themed comedy is no laughing matter

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Saturday, November 20, 2010,
Fellow travellers, one thing that has perturbed me deeply recently is that more and more people are starting to poke fun at the environmentalist agenda! And I don't just mean appalling peenie-waving conservatives. They've been mocking us for many years now. But since they are so literal-minded and simplistic (unlike we on the left, who are so complex, sophisticated and ironic) their "comedy" and "satire" always falls flat.

No, the thing that really worries me is that now some on the progressiv...

Bob Brown demeans monkeys, gorillas with speciesist smear!

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Thursday, November 18, 2010,
Championing the rights of animals (or as I Iike to think of them, non-human people) can be a frustrating and thankless task. I mean, it can be disappointing, to say the least, when after performing three hours of political street theatre raising awareness about our threatened indigenous bird-life, a pigeon decides to defecate on your head!

Then there is the pervasive speciesism that so many Homo sapiens are guilty of. It's bad enough that it's a societal norm. But sometimes this appalling atti...

Women found to be greener than men. More female scientists, please

Posted by Derek Sapphire on Wednesday, November 17, 2010,
Fellow travellers, I am not at all surprised that women are deemed to be the greener gender. They are much closer to nature than men, and Gaia is a sassy sister, after all.

They are also more likely to believe in global warming, and that it is a serious problem. This shows that, contrary to so many sexist stereotypes, they are clearly much more rational than men.

But when I say rational, I don't mean the fake male kind of "rationalism". You know, the white coat-wearing, detached, cold, clinica...
