Check out my awesome Southern Cross Tattoo!!! (Counter Protest)

By Jim Jones 18 August 2011 26

Word coming from Australian Youth Climate Coalition about a counter-protest against the ”True Australians™ democratic blockade of the  latte-sipping, chardonay-swilling, chattering class, shiny-bum, mung-bean munching, green extremists who will destroy this great nation and everything it stands for AND MAKE US STARVE IN THE DARK”

Yes, apparently there’s a counter protest:

“Abbott lies”. Huh! That’s a laugh. What about “There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead”.

What a bunch of naive little hypocrites.

You believe Abbott is truthful 100% of the time?

It’s called shifting the target piopular among those with no valid argument. We all know politicians lie most of the time. We live with it. Sometimes it seems like Anarchy is the only sane alternative (For those that will object “Anarchy” (note the capitalization) means a society without rulers not a society without rules)

And again, any pretence of serious consideration of policy issues is lost in a meaningless playground spat about who is a ‘liar liar pants on fire’.

“You get the politicians you deserve” – have a think about that one.

Sometimes I wonder if the pollies play this game to divert attention from actual issues.

It seems like the “Abbott lies” mantra is how the left keeps telling itself it was foolish for supporting Greens/Labor (which are the same anyway). Abbott has never even been PM!

+1. Regardless of Abbott’s behaviour, the PM should be setting an example. A critical leader of the opposition is hardly justification for Gillard’s BS.
