Blessed Are The Stupid For They Shall Inhibit The Earth - Tony Abbott, Maurice Newman and What To Do About People Who Insist On Looking At Facts! - The AIM Network
Ok, I’ve just been reading about the British Penal System prior to
the First Fleet. Now this was a time when they really knew how to dish
out severe punishments but strangely the crime rate was still rather
high. Now when I say dish out severe punishments, I naturally meant to
the lower classes. The important people – lords and the like – were
judged by the House of Lords until 1948, and they seemed to believe that
– as with Peta Credlin’s drink driving charge, the public humiliation
was enough punishment.
Of course, we still have people arguing that harsher penalties will
act as a deterrent to crime. While this may be true in very rare cases, I
suspect most people don’t stop and think, before committing a criminal
act, “Hey, I only get five years for this, if it were ten, I’d
definitely stop right now, and go and become a doctor.”
But, let’s be real! Nearly half the population is below average
intelligence. (When this simple fact is applied to schools, it’s a sign
of how badly they’re failing.)
My concern is not that we have stupid people. It’s that their
opinions seem to be given such prominence in the media. Instead of
giving scientists a chance to write a column, “The Australian” decided
that it was worth giving Maurice Newman the space to explain to us all
that the Bureau of Meteorology is caught up in this “warmist” conspiracy
and have been falsifying figures.
Strange that during the period of so-called “global cooling”, there
was no suggestion that the figures may be wrong. These were “facts” that
the green movement were told were indisputable.
Yet now it seems that the BOM may be fallible after all. How do we
know? Well, Maurice Newman says so! And he’s Tony Abbott’s Business
Adviser, so he must know what he’s taking about. I mean, he was
attacking wind farms even before Joe realised that they were incredibly
ugly and lacked the raw beauty of a coal-fired power station.
Maurice Newman has refused meet with scientists about his comments.
After all, scientists are part of that whole conspiracy that began with
the Age of Enlightenment. They probably even suggest that just
transporting convicts to Australia won’t actually put an end to crime.
Mr Newman, like Tony Abbott, arrived in Australia by boat from
England as a young boy, but neither were convicts as the English stopped
sending their convicts here some time before either of them arrived. In
the twentieth century, they only sent people who understood the
superiority of the English class system while preferring the Australian
Mm, perhaps there is a strong case for stopping the boats, after all.
