August 16 shaping up as the day of darkness at Parliament House

By johnboy - 15 July 2011 160

Earlier in the week we were disturbed that the kings of Sydney talkback radio, Alan Jones, Ray Hadley, and Chris Smith, were coming to Canberra to broadcast from the lawns of Parliament House.

We gather that’s for some sort of anti carbon tax rally.

But now the Sydney gay media is noting that there’s going to be a gay hate march converging on our fair city that same day:

A collection of gay hate groups will join forces to rally against marriage equality in Canberra next month.

An initiative of the Australian Family Association, the National Marriage Coalition, the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) and Dads4Kids: Fatherhood Foundation, the coalition is aiming for a repeat of its 2004 rally which coincided with the Howard Government’s changes to the Marriage Act.

The groups will meet in Parliament House’s Great Hall on August 16.

The ‘National Marriage Day’ is being advertised by the group as being the first day of sitting for the new Senate in which the Greens hold the balance of power, despite the new Senate having already sat this month.
“You are needed in Canberra to show support for natural marriage and warn all politicians,” its call to action on the ACL website reads.

Is it time for Canberra to get it’s freak on?

UPDATE: Thanks to the readers who’ve pointed out Radio National reporting that the unholy trinity are scared to face the people of Canberra.

What’s Your opinion?

The revolutionaires are coming next monday.

The Punch have just got up a good article about today’s rabble:
http://www.thepunch.com.au/articles/carbon-freak-show/
and it sounds like they were revolutionaries too, whining for a new election.

By the sounds of it, they got some more footage of Abbott in front of rude signs, again. Fair dinkum, the gist of all this seems to be that, if the conservatives don’t get in, the election is invalid and they howl for a re-draw. It’s not a bloody fete raffle.

Phew, that’s a relief. There I was thinking that it wasn’t going to happen.

So, has the revolution started yet? When is the election?

Bizarre. Since when could demonstraters use the inside of parliament house?

You can hire the great hall for pretty much anything.

EvanJames 3:02 pm 16 Aug 11

Yeah, Jethro’s right. According to the CT, 800 haters flocked into the great hall at Parly House and Bob Katter auctioned off his hat. They were inside hating gays, while outside the carbon tax people worshipped Tony Abbott.

I went along and had a squiz this morning.
I think it is/was actually two separate things.
A whole bunch of very old people were going into parliament house for the gay hate meeting, and a whole bunch of rednecks were gathering on the grass out front with poorly spelled signs.

“I hate poofs and science”

Outstanding! Yep, these are the people who should be directing the course of Australian politics.

They have assumed the role of the Real People. I think Alan Jones probably told them they were the Real People. They cannot work out why their guys didn’t get up at the last election, clearly something went wrong so they’re going to fix it.

Man, that’s a good chunk of evil concentrated in a small area…surely this provides some sort of opportunity to, er, “solve” the problem?

I say we take off and nuke the site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

Looks like this is still on today, but they’ve re-branded it as an anti carbon tax rally. What a shame they didn’t co-ordinate with their fellow haters, and schedule it for Monday.

I wish, on one hand, that the world was free of the ignorant, uneducated trash of mediocrity these protestors so clearly are.

On the other hand, I’d love to take a cricket bat to the whole lot.

My position on gay marriage is that it’s better to have more love in the world than less. Obviously my position is not shared by all.

Alan Jones hits two birds with one stone.

Does anyone know if this gay hate rally is still going ahead?
If so, is there any counter-rally planned?
Also, is it (the gay hate rally) linked to the no carbon tax rally also scheduled?

With all the furore over the trucks next week this one seems to have been forgotten.

The trucks are coming to support gay marriage.

No. It’s irony. I suggest you find a dictionary and look up a definition.
Almost all satire is based on a foundation of irony, as is a great deal of pastiche. The fact that you know these words and use them properly, but seem to believe that they preclude irony (which is at their very core) bodes ill.

The piece contains irony, but as a piece it is more correctly referred to as a satire on, or pastiche of, a right-wing/Christian post.

Several people on this board seem to be confused about my previous post. I thought I made it perfectly clear but it looks like I’ll have to clarify and reassert my original post.

It wasn’t “ironic”, “satirical”, “pastiche” or “a send up” it is the truth. Man has no control over the weather or climate, it was predetermined by the Almighty at the time of Creation. Thus, there is no such thing as man-made or anthropomorphic climate change. Just look in The Bible.

As I also said in my post, Cardinal Pell has said that there is no such thing as climate change. Although the Heavenly Father hasn’t given an opinion in an Encyclical or a Papal Nuncio, I’m sure that if this cult of climate change gets any further out of hand he will be forced to act.

The Bible does not say anything about climate change and therefore it doesn’t exist. End of story.

Okay, you can give it a rest now. We all know about Poe, but to be fair most bible-believers are not as moronic as you portray them. Some are even capable of understanding science.

Jeez, how thick 😛 are you, the bible does not mention mobile phones because CLEARLY, like my toaster, they do not exist.

In other news, you cant read this imaginary comment, on this imaginary website, on your imaginary screen… Because God says NO!

Ahhh, you kidder you. Your post-modern, ironic denial of your ironic intent only increases the irony of the whole discussion.

We are not worthy to be in the presence of such a master of this, the most profound source of humour.
