That this wizened old crone has had her account deleted for hateful conduct and wishing personal injury, as a result of this tweet has made my weekend.
Hopefully it is a permanent banning. Even though as a leading so called Indigenous Intellectual her Nastiness and visceral dislike for Australians, especially white Australians, is a great negative advertisement for the Voice, my personal dislike for her provides extraordinary schadenfreude at the thought of her losing her account. .
I think Latham is an ineffective politician, who gets a lot of air time from the press because they know he can be relied upon to vomit up some controversy or another, that will cause such controversy as to help continue to spill over and taint that side of politics. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that he is in it for the Super, but he is definitely a professional politician.
While he does a good job of identifying of calling out the entwined neoliberalism and hypocrisy of the political duopoly, it is a pity that he also succeeds in sucking so much oxygen out of that side of politics.

Apart from Katter, I think Latham is the only politician I’ve heard speak anything negative about the LGBT identity in the past 20 years, even if the comment was a reactionary slur against some progressive pooh-stabbers own critical remarks towards Latham.

By pushing back against the media’s determination to make LGBT an ‘Aspirational Lifestyle’, even as a personal opinion, violates the elites culture of ultra-tolerance, making that person a public enemy open to complete and utter anhilation.
While the Latham issue is ongoing, my linking it to Langton’s account being suspended or closed appears to have been premature, as she said those comments years ago. Who knows why her account no longer exists – I’m still happy to celebrate the fact that it currently isn’t viewable. Besides I just put this post up as a place holder as the last thread, with over 250 comments, was taking too long to load, so I just scrabbled around for something to post:
