An exciting new option for last place on the ballot. Philip Pocock

Rejoice Molonglo voters struggling to decide who to put last on the come October 20. The SMH has a piece on Philip Pocock who wants to outlaw homosexuality and (more alarmingly for the rest of the population) sex outside of marriage.

Best of all he has a ranty bedroom YouTube vid from 2009 to outline his thoughts at tedious length (Thankyou A. Hadley for pointing that out).


UPDATE 23/09/12 13:53: And of course Phil is on Twitter, and feeling hard done by at the hands of all the deviants:

The poster at Deakin shops has swastikas on it, then I took a second look and figured they were part of the original design

You serious?

The only other ‘independent’ running in Molonglo is me.

It annoys me that there are so many people who respect those with extreme views fo no other reason than they have the “courage” to express them.

Now there’s a profound truth about public discourse in these modern times of ours.

Loonies and deranged nutbags of all varieties (hey ACL, I’m staring at you) will demand respect because their malevolent drivel is based on religion, and because they based their views on religion it is therefore deserving of respect, which is a circular argument if ever I’ve seen on.

Similarly, tossers like this bloke claim that their views are credible simply because they’ve had the courage to express them in opposition to popular current opinion. I agree that it takes balls to sound off in public about one’s crazed beliefs, but that doesn’t make those beliefs any less ridiculous, obnoxious or offensive.

The deliciously named Mr Pocock should simply pack up, go home, and leave the grown ups to get on with things.

Its part of the same group that think saying “its political correctness gone mad” substitutes for an actual thought out argument supporting any position. “Im not allowed to slag people off? Its political correctness gone mad” but the opposite is if someone else gets to do something “they” are taking over the country.

Anyone know what the record lowest voter number is in ACT election history? Honest question. I’m intrigued to see if this guy can lower the bar.

2008 was Eddie Sarkis (Independent) for Ginninderra – 92…..

But overall

Robert Fearn – 2004 – Non Party C – Molonglo – 30

I think he might get a bit of a troll vote. It’s like a donkey vote, but thinks it’s clever.

Funny, all the posters I’ve seen already have a photo of a giant dick right in the middle 😉

I have the utmost respect for the surname Pocock particularly if David precedes it.Of course it would have nothing to do with the fact that he is 105 kg and built like a brick shithouse.

Sad, isn’t it, that in ridiculing this anachronistic would-be demagogue, critics resort to words, phrases and vehemence level that one normally associates with “poofta bashers”? Cory Bernardi suffered a similar onslaught from people who could not resist the opportunity to out-do him in silliness. At least Pocock and Bernardi have had the courage to stand up under their real names, using clear images of themselves and are not hiding behind the anonymity afforded by the internet to the cowardly.

It annoys me that there are so many people who respect those with extreme views fo no other reason than they have the “courage” to express them. Insulting and demeaning people who have done nothing wrong and whom affect your own life in no material way is far from courageous.

He’s been vehemently denying any connection on Twitter and joking that he enrolled to vote in the ACT just to put his namesake last.

seeing as enrolments closed before the story broke that’s unlikely, but I don’t imagine he’s been enjoying the citywide poocock jokes.

David Pocock’s views on gay rights (and marriage) are far removed from those of Philip Pocock. Interestingly, he states that his Christian beliefs are behind his support of gay marriage in this article, which is so different in approach from that taken by his namesake:
http://www.abc.net.au/religion/articles/2011/12/02/3382170.htm

So refreshing to read, as are the comments by Archbishop Tutu that he quotes.

“The notion that a woman has the right to refuse to have sex with her husband on a whim is really a development of feminism in the 21st century…”

I might get this bloke to have a word with my missus . . . she’s always knocking me back on a whim.

What a joke

Just a thought, one could have some fun with this and some generated CC numbers that are fake but will pass the initial basic checks and actually attempt to be processed…..

Well given he’s made an absolute arse of himself i think we should all ram it home with gay abandon!

Republican Presidential hopeful, Rick Santorum, found that after making anti-gay comments his surname had been redifined by gay activists and was showing up in search engines as ‘the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex’.

Could we do something similar with Pocock? What would it mean?
