Trotskyist Professor Martin Hirst is (fittingly and unsurprisingly) the first witness at Julia Gillard/ Bob Brown’s Kangaroo Court “Media Inquiry”. Proving once again what a disgusting and despicable Stalinist farce this event is.
Trevor Loudon profiles Hirst here. Some excerpts-
“self-proclaimed socialist Martin Hirst, declared (at an Auckland University journalism seminar) that journalism was not about reporting the world, but about changing the world.”
“Objectivity as a principle of journalism is no longer the holy grail.”
“My (Hirst’s) politics are in the tradition of international socialism.”
“Dr Hirst is listed as a contributor to the Australian Trotskyist website Marxist Interventions, where he is described thus; Martin Hirst has been active in socialist politics since 1975 and claims to have been the only Trotskyist to ever work in the federal press gallery as a journalist.”
What an affront to judicial process that this posturing Soviet Socialist academic thug is any kind of witness in any kind of “inquiry”.
I continue to observe this event with growing disbelief. Is this really happening in Australia, supposedly a free and democratic western society? The answer of course is yes. Under the government of the communist thugs Gillard and Brown, its going like a house on fire.
Trevor Loudon has a lot more on Hirst.
