(note for American readers- In Australia, the Democrats are the Labor Party, and the Republicans are the Liberal Party. Broadly speaking. Yeah, I know. Its utterly crazy.)
This is a post not so much about same sex marriage as about the false claim that its supporters are “liberals” in the political sense.
NZers can watch the Australian version of Q and A on the net, and I often do so, even though in most cases it angers me so much I have to turn it off. Last night I didn’t turn if off because Brendan O’Neill was on. I doubt he will be invited back again as he nailed the faux liberalism of Progressive ideology again and again.
Much to the chagrin of the left, mostly in the form of Tony Jones, the presenter, and the two other far left guests Richard DiNatali, (Greens leader) and Sam Dastyari (Labour). IMHO two of the most odious and repugnant politicians in Australia. (and that is saying something)
In fact Brendan even got right up the nose of Liberal MP Kelly O’Dwyer, another hopeless wet weak Progressive imposter to Liberal Party values who like Malcolm Turnbull should have gone and joined the Labor party years ago. It was great to watch.
The above video is Brendan’s answer to a question on same sex marriage, wherein he nails so perfectly the truth that its advocates are most often not the “classic” liberals and free thinkers they pass themselves off as but vicious intolerant medievalists. As Cameron Slater and other faux liberals in NZ have so aptly demonstrated, when acting exactly as Brendan describes, they denigrated and labeled as bigots anyone and everyone who voiced an opinion different to theirs.
Enough from myself, watch the video and hear what Brendan has to say. He speaks on the issue so well that even the stacked ABC audience has to applaud.
