The Politics of Domestic Violence by Mrs Vera West
There was a very good article by Jennifer Oriel (“There Can be No Reasoning with PC Bigot Rights Advocates,” The Australian, October 17, 2016, p. 12) discussing the race hatred complaint about the Bill Leak cartoon. That’s not my area of interest, but I did notice her argument that the UN’s aim of universal human rights has “been replaced by minority rights championed by socialists and Islamists.”
As well “The Marxist dictatorship of the proletariat has been replaced by the neo-Marxist dictatorship of manufactured minorities.”
She notes that the “UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, recently demonised conservative politicians of eight countries for opposing his agenda. The UN has endorsed a new campaign to classify dissent from its open border policy as “xenophobia” and “intolerance.” ”
Much the same can be said in the area of gender politics with Victorian students now facing mandatory teaching about “male privilege” and how “masculinity” results in the control and dominance of women. (The Australian, October 14, 2016, p. 1) What’s that? Masculinity is still alive? Apparently so and the Victorian government is spending $21.8 million on a programme which will show that men are all bad and all women, like former Prime Minister Julia Gillard, are all victims.
As usual, the cultural war is being conducted to counter domestic violence. But as Bettina Arndt argued (The Australian, July 9, 2016; The Australian, August 20, 2016), there is a “huge propaganda industry determined to promote a simplistic male-blaming perspective on this complex social issue.”
She notes that in Australia at least a third of domestic violence cases involve women committing violence.
Swedish politicians Eva Solberg has said that domestic violence is not a product of the “tired gendered analysis,” such as behind that of our government. The Partner Abuse State of Knowledge project indicates that across the world “in at least half of its occurrence, (domestic violence) is carried out by female perpetrators.”
There is no evidence that Australia is facing an epidemic of domestic violence. Thus, the Victorian government is pursuing a programme essentially attacking men and masculinity. Vote them out!
Malcolm Turnbull has also decided to ride on the DV (domestic violence) train as well and this one of 20 billion reasons why he needs to be immediately replaced as prime minister.
