What that guy did to his family is unforgivable. That aside is there any more insight into the relationship, one way abuse or maybe both psychos? What we’ve seen from the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard situation is that not everything is always as clear cut as initially presented.

Don’t know. I’ve heard a lot of people condemning Bettina Arndt for her comments but I’ve not heard anyone actually quote her. All I’ve heard in the media is that the dude killed his wife and kids. Reprehensible obviously, but why it happened nobody seems to want to dig any deeper except blaming toxic masculinity or something.

From what I read he was jealous, entirely self-centred and extremely controlling to the point of isolating her from her own family. He'd apparently received joint custody for his children so it can't be argued that he was being deprived of access to his children or anything. That being said, the man murdered his wife and children in one of the most painful ways possible. Even if he had been mistreated somehow, nothing could come close to justifying or explaining his actions.

She spouts a lot of shit so it would be hard to quote all of it. This is the main tweet that caused the latest stuff:

She took a tragedy and then used the victims as a weapon to further her political agenda.
So what? Ideologues are gonna use tragedy to twist it into a weapon. What is new.

This is just like when NI used JS fake assault as a weapon to bash the people he disagrees with.
We will just have to learn to live with these grifters.

Only solution I can think of is to mercilessly mock them until everyone is disgusted by them.


(sure, there could be other background issues in this specific example, but this is not the time or place
to pull them out to just weaponize the fact that several childrend were murdered.)

Yeah here’s the thing. She phrases it in a way that makes sense. “Why wouldn’t we want to get the full story on this?”

but then you are truely thinking-what justifies him burning his wife and children alive? Like if he got them on 2 weekends a month it’s fine, 1 weekend is worth bashing her but 1 supervised is worth child murder?

this anti male meme of family courts needs to fucking die. Every man I know who whinges about it also are terrible fathers who would never even want their kids that much. My uncle complains about family courts not believing dads but I remember clearly when they divorced him saying he loved the free time he now had. Fuck off with that shit.

I don’t think she was saying that there is any way it could be justified, rather that the bigger picture is that the police have to go into every investigation with an open mind no matter the circumstances. Her comments were in response to criticism of the police waiting for the investigation to be complete before making an official statement. Feminists were up in arms that police weren’t immediately coming out and openly support their shrieking.

Don't worry,
It is all lies spread by Putin, trying to influence the election.

The truth will come out and Clive will become our true king and rule us justly and fairly and we will all proper under hist just rule.
( I voted for fucking Craig Thompsom. I have a very high tolerance for "unusual" monetary transactions.)

This is one image of where he Spock salutes his fellow labor voters in the traditional NSW labor / spock way:






I was also at some stage represented by corrupt fucker John Della Bosca and his violent and crazy wife that Rudd had to send to anger management training or get thrown out.

Good part was that Woy Woy road was probably the best maintained rural road in all of Australia. If there was a single crack in the blacktop anywhere there would be a 20 people team out there for a month to fix the road.
Plan properly and you know when the speed camera outside "Roy Lamb, The Sand Man", exit to the road would be disabled or when RBT tests would not happen either.


Never gonna vote labor again in australia.

Ugly NZ woman.
Don't send your low life over here and we won't have to deport them back.
“The Australian government’s policy is very clear. We deport non-citizens who have committed crimes in Australia against our community. This policy is applied not specific to one country, but to any country whose citizens are here,” the Australian Prime Minister said.

“You commit a crime here. If convicted, once you have done your time, we send you home. That’s what the Australian policy is. And that policy is framed in Australia’s national interests.”


I almost forgive him now for the bushfire bs.


“I respect the positions that are put forward by Prime Minister Ardern. But in our government’s view, that is not in Australia’s national interest, to not deport non-citizens who have committed crimes in Australia.

“When you become a citizen, well, you have joined the club, and if you violate our laws at that point, then that is on our watch and Australia has to take care of those situations.

“But if you’re non-citizen, our very clear view – and our government is well known for our clear views when it comes to issues of immigration and border security – if you have committed a crime, and you’re not a citizen of Australia, then you have no right to stay.”


Listen 'Muricans. This is how you deal with foreigners that commit crimes. Listen and learn.


“Those who were born in Australia, or have become citizens through our formal process – citizens of Australia enjoy the rights and entitlements and obligations of being citizens. No one else.

“Anyone else who doesn’t hold the title of ‘citizen of Australia’ does not get a special deal. Doesn’t matter how long you’ve been here. It doesn’t matter whether you turned up yesterday or many years ago.

“If you are not a citizen, and you violate our laws, then under my government’s policies you will not be allowed to remain. You will be returned to the citizenship nationality, which is what I define as your ‘home’.”

Fuck that.

We pay taxes out the arse and they want to tell us how we can spend our own money?

Fuck the Liberals. Fuck these dictator cunts.
Yeah it's fucked up. It's not going to do much to criminals that use cash, but it screws up people that don't want to use banks.

Left-wing Islamic terrorists? What a fuckwit.
Not in her defence because i don't even care about this, but Islam is a certifiable socialist ideology. Economically it is wholly socialist, socially it is mixed (pro welfare state, anti-progressive, etc)

It's a real fucking stretch. In any case look at Jesus's teachings and tell me they are supportive of half the stuff western society does, especially right wing evangelicals / scomos fucking crowd.

It's a stupid thing to point out to christians that and it's stupid to say Islam = left wing terror.

The real issue is Dutton using a police report as political hoop scoring. Like no one gives a fuck anyway. If someone says "right wing terror up, are you worried about what your government allows?" feign outrage at it and deflect. Here I'll right it for him-

"Look I reject the basis of that comment, the people in the Coalition have no ties to any of the people in the reports here and would not want to represent any violent criminals. I'd like to thank the AFP for ensuring we are all safe from people who wish us harm no matter their ideologies or beliefs, and it shows how important the Border Force and AFP are to ensure the safety of this great nation"

Easy! But that potato fucker couldn't even get it right. He saw "right wing hate groups are bad' and said "ACTUALLY LABOR"

Yeah same here, all the shops be running out of stock. Just wait until the pubs and bottle shops run out of booze...
Looks like a great business opportunity. Just set up your van in the lot outside the "empty" store and sell toilet paper for 5$ per roll.

Is this in Australia or China or Bosnia?
That would never happen in australia.

Anyway, why are people so obsessed with buying mountains of toiletpaper?
Learn to fucking waffle-stomp and you will never have to worry about toiletpaper shortages ever again.

Myself, I would put having a full pantry with food much higher on the priority list than toiletpaper.
