Bernardi & Abbott: a shared psychosis

23 Sep

And the week finished on a spectacularly self-mutilating note for the No side, with Cory Bernardi and Tony Abbott inadvertently exposing the dark spite at its crippled heart through a couple of straw-clutching stunts that only served to reveal the dire lack of substance in the anti-marriage equality tripe.

Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott yesterday provoked a media kerfuffle when he decided to report an alleged assault on him in Hobart not to police, as one might expect, but to Andrew Bolt and various other representatives of the gutter press. He had been head butted, he claimed, by a Yes supporter, in a totally unprovoked attack and this is all we can expect from Yes supporters who are disgracefully violent.

Eric Abetz, with whom Abbott later lunched, declared that if marriage equality becomes a thing we can expect that married same-sex couples will go round head butting whomever they want, because marriage equality gives legitimacy to head butting. Or something.

Eventually the Tasmanian police, alerted by media reports, contacted Abbott about the assault. They subsequently arrested  Hobart DJ and anarchist Astro Labe, who stated quite bluntly that his attack had absolutely nothing at all to do with same-sex marriage. Astro just hates Abbott and half-tanked, took an apparently god-given golden opportunity to “nut the cunt.”

That the media unquestioningly ran with Abbott’s fantasy that he had been attacked by a marriage equality supporter because of his stand against same-sex marriage, is disturbing. As the story unfolded, it became clear Abbott had quickly confected the motives for the assault, and the media went right along with his confection. I am tempted to speculate that Abbott’s opportunistic lies explain his failure to report the assault to police, and hopefully will cause him some difficulties when the matter comes to court.

Senator Cory Bernardi took umbrage at the South Australian Craigburn Primary School’s “Do it in a Dress” day, an event they’ve held for the last six years in which boys are encouraged to wear school frocks as part of a fund-raiser for African girls who are in urgent need of education.

“This gender morphing is really getting absurd” thundered the chiselled-faced senator who apparently believes if you allow a boy child to wear a dress for six hours he will morph into a yucky girl and a rampant homosexual and destroy the values of western civilisation and all this ruination begins with marriage equality you are being warned!

The school expected to raise about $900 for the African girls. At last count they’d received some $120,000, as citizens outraged by Bernardi’s perverted attack on the generosity of little kids expressed their feelings via their credit cards. Bernardi has been left with an inordinate amount of egg on his Ken-like features, and his mean-spirited efforts to shame primary school boys because they don a frock has exposed the despicable lengths he is prepared to go to in his anti LGBTQI and marriage equality campaign.

These two men are, quite frankly, hideous in their zealotry and their willingness to exploit every situation in support of their cause. Both men have been exposed as extremists, who see the world through the lens of their bigotry and homophobia, always on the look out for circumstances they can turn to their advantage. These tactics have backfired for both of them this week.

The media is also apparently biased against the Yes side, with No campaigner Lyle Shelton receiving three times, that is three times more mentions than prominent Yes advocates.

You’ll be relieved to hear that Abbott received only a “very, very small swelling” on his lip. You might care to consider this alongside the murderous violence perpetrated against gays, for example, and the astounding lack of interest and concern shown by media and authorities in these atrocities.

Post Script: I have just with my own eyes seen a photo of Bernardi and his wife in their own home with a large painting of  Australia’s most famous gender morpher, Dame Edna Everage, on the wall.  Nobody could make this shit up. Nobody.

    Thanks for elaborating on some of the points I had missed. My latest response to this absurdity was to headbutt my YES vote.

    Astro Labe didn’t need to headbutt Tony Abott because he didn’t like the No campaign. Any thinking Australian could come up with hundreds of reasons to show Abbott why the magic “c” word fits him.

      Agree with that sentiment, but I would like to machine gun all the ALP/LNP- however being as how they are not worth going to prison for I use a small portion of my DSP to buy fabric to make clothes for refugee and aboriginal kids.

    The postscript says it all. A painting of Dame Edna on Bernardi’s wall?

    The lady doth protest too much.

    Are both Abbott and Bernardi so insecure in their own sexuality that they must loudly proclaim their straightness at every chance they get?

    The myth that Abbott actually wrote a book, any book:

    “ADELAIDE journalist and John Howard’s former speech writer, Christopher Pearson, has died.

    Mr Pearson, who founded the Adelaide Review, penned Tony Abbott’s three books and major speeches and was a columnist for The Australian, passed away on Friday night aged 61.”

    (report from June 10 2013 :

    Penned Tony Abbott’s three books!

    Ghostwriter, anyone?

      Well, well, so you know the old Adelaide Review?

      That was a wacky sort of conservative imitation of the National Times, a mixture of really good and really bad stuff. Michael (?) Bowman used to write good copy on media and politics, but Abbott’ s columns were so bad I never thought he would be taken seriously.

      The memories it evokes serve as a demonstration to this writer of just how badly the national psyche has fallen apart over a generation.

    I actually took a quick look at Mr Astro Funknukl Labe’s Facebook page as soon as Miranda Devine shared his name on Twitter on Saturday and before his name was bandied around as common head-butting muck with a Yes voting sticker adorned to his coat. He has since made his page private so don’t expect to get a gander at it. But to the eager eyes of this conservative sleuth, his page revealed a cornucopia of Leftist ideology and sick perversion. For a start, Astro is a booze hound. Nothing wrong with drinking but this leftist asswipe lived in a $10 a night Hobart boarding house surrounded by empty spirit bottles and hoping to write the great Australian novel, a novel this asswipe admitted he couldn’t sufficiently intellectually grasp or structure a coherent sentence given his proclivity to drug abuse. A typical lefty loser.

      Meanwhile Frances Abbott:

      “The fitness enthusiast took to Instagram to express how excited she was to support same-sex marriage.

      She said she was ‘sweating’ and ‘jumping up and down like Christmas’.

      ‘Ripped the envelope open. Ticked the yes box,’ she wrote, adding the hashtags #voteyes and #loveislove.”

      Oh really, Miranda Devine, the right’s stale gothic answer to Cate Blanchett.. do you breath before that vision from Goya’s Sleep of Reason speaks?

      But I am angry with Astro Labe also, a proper head butt should have busted the bastard’s nose..waste of an opportunity.

      But the real reason for my anger is not because of a mis hit header and footer, because Abbott is a has-been. Read this following:

      So many creeps; Xenophon, Berg, Dutton, Hadley. So many should have been in the Labe’s sights before too much drink furred his judgement to the extent that he wasted a good nut on the deranged Mad Monk.

      As for Bernardi, we were laughing our heads off when a mate told us the donations for the charity had gone from a $ thousand to a $hundred thousand and double that, the following day.

      What a misfire, for the neurotic fear of a few girl-fleas in the lad’s chic outfits!

      I have long enjoyed the ease with which Our Beautiful Tony whips Leftist nitwits into an envious frenzy, Frank. The males want to be him, the females want to be with him.

      That on a fine summers day, one of these Leftist nitwits were drowning, outside the flags, Tony would spot them with his bionic vision, weakly waving their limp wrists in the air, and selflessly (as always) spring into action, sprinting across the hot sand to save their worthless hides. Could it be a mere ruse to have him press his taut, hirsute body against them as he administers mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and cop a close-up look at his red-nylon-clad-glory?

      Is it any wonder they named a beach after Our Beautiful Tony? Manly – of course.

      Similarly if one of their houses was in the path of a raging bushfire, Our Beautiful Tony would be there in an instant – dousing the flames, saving native fauna as well as women and children – all in time for the 6pm bulletin. Take that Turnbull! Match that, Bill.

      Some wouldn’t piss on a Leftist if they were on fire, but Our Beautiful Tony sees what we sometimes cannot – souls worth saving.

      But the Left has a new hero, a dole-bludging anarchist (!) who – in a surprise attack, tried to hurt Our Beautiful Tony.

      Presenting Astro “DJ Funknukl” Labe – hero of Leftist nitwits, who in a drugged and drunken stupor (his natural state?) left a “friend” to die after falling down the stairs… and couldn’t even be bothered to call an ambulance:,_mark_leslie

      “Messrs Labe and Daniels left this residence shortly after 2.00 am and there is no indication as to whether or not they further checked upon Mr Green’s condition at any time between when he was placed on the bench and when they left the residence.”

        I cannot detect an ounce of irony or self-deprecation in that post Havana. Your lust for Abbott and Frank and hints at a much desired threesome seems honest and forthright and on that basis alone I’ll put you down as a yes vote on the SSM survey.

        What a brave and courageous fellow you are.

            Poor Frank and Havana, both suffering the lack of relevancy disorder. They lust after Astro Labe’s middle name, Fuckknucle. They are worried about their own sexuality and hanker for the days when the cry “No poofters!” rang loudly across the land.

            Brings a tear to the eye. LOLx10 :))

    Thanks for reminding me of the word ‘asswipe’. My dream is one day having such intellectual comments on my content!


    • doug quixote September 29, 2017 at 5:45 am #

      You should be so lucky. Frank only gets access to a keyboard when Nurse isn’t watching. ‘Asswipe’ is what poor Nurse has to do every few hours, as Frank is a little loose in the bowels as well as the head. It is my theory that most rightists/conservatives are anally fixated, and there is no cure.

      Such is life. (DQ sighs)
