Dick Tater and the climate emergency

By Grumpy Geezer  

Dear Diary

There’s nothing like the lapping of waves around the foundations of one’s extensive waterfront property portfolio to encourage one to ponder one’s options. Thankfully I can offload the lot to some unsuspecting mugs thanks to ScoMo’s slashing of red tape and my gagging of the snoopy media. Fantastic. Great move. Well done!

This rising of sea waters was hilarious when it was just flooding the dusky types on Pacific islands; and I’m not easily amused. But who knew it would happen to me? So, climate emergency eh? I like that word emergency. It suggests an opportunity.

Spud

* * * * *

There can be little doubt that our taro-headed totalitarian Peter Spud-Dutton loves his job. Given his present day enthusiastic demonising and torment of desperate asylum seekers it seems perfectly plausible that pulling the wings off flies and tying fireworks to the tails of neighbourhood cats was an agreeable pastime for the youthful, callow tuber who now, as a ripe vegetable, has real people at his mercy. He’s upgraded his hobbies into a well-remunerated professional sadism where the perks include figuratively poking sharpened sticks through the gulag wire at the last remaining hopes of stranded and desperate refugees. Does he find the job satisfaction to be somewhat arousing? (Take 10 minutes to clear that image from your brain).

Underlying an absence of empathy, disdain for transparency, antipathy for decency and a negligible intellect there’s a malevolent ambition. His shiv to Malcolm Trembles’ Prime Ministerial ribs is unfinished business, awaiting the inevitable fuckups from FuaxMo; but at some point it should also occur to the gormless Spud that an opportunity will arise for him to expedite his aspirational authoritarianism – civil unrest.

Post-election buyer’s remorse will inevitably set in as this kakocracy’s cluelessness and callousness becomes too obvious to ignore. But a devastated food chain is on the horizon and disappointment will then be swamped by panic. Franking credits will not feed families.

The remnant climate change deniers will continue to deny as a groundswell of dissent builds to a point where it poses a tangible threat to the self-interests of the ruling claque. Spud can seize his moment; the risible rhizome’s ambition can be fulfilled.

“Men rise from one ambition to another: first, they seek to secure themselves against attack, and then they attack others.” (Niccolo Machiavelli).

Recall Spud’s 2015 deployment of dark-uniformed, armed goons onto the streets of Melbourne targeting brownish folk. The indignant uproar was immediate and effective but the sorry saga is a crystal clear insight into the belligerent mindset of a despot.

As marine ecosystems collapse, insect populations plummet and crops then fail, as water evaporates or is poisoned by profiteers and more extreme and more frequent climate events threaten the complacency and property values of even the most dedicated Tory boosters more and more people will then take to the streets. And Policeman Prat can weaponise his ambition.

Spud will be given licence as the panicked poltroons on the right ram through draconian legislation to protect their self interests, further curbing our right to know and to express an opinion. His focus will turn inwards, away from flotillas of climate refugees as he excises more and more of our freedoms. What’s left in our dams will fuel his water cannons, he’ll seek military deployment against civilians and he’ll decorate the halls of Parliament and the street lampposts with his image.

Stock up on canned goods and ammo.

Too hyperbolic? Too dystopian? You haven’t been paying attention. When you see Spud in a uniform it will be too late.

    “Proctocracy” is the term for ‘government by arseholes’.

  2. Phil Pryor

    The highly flawed factor in politics is that we vote for a few minutes every few years and the more nongy and numbskully know little, care less and read without enlightenment. Thus we hand over to the unqualified, ignorant, wilful, ambitious and loud mouthed cause and career seeker the keys to the law, the money, the weapons. If a class of, say, conservative, greedy, untrustworthy, illiterate nobodies poses up enough to get the role, the part, we are faced with a dud actor actually posing as a a leader, a god, an emperor. That seems to be a survey of this government. Dutton, a failure at attempts to gain some elementary tertiary training, had come through the ranks of trained coercer, enforcer, bitey dog, whereby Social Service can be reduced to S S in his case, with more sinister meaning. We have a deficient and backward underdone operative in a role too large, too subtle, requiring far more intelligence, experience, decency and honesty. he is not a toe in a large boot, not a crumb when a loaf is needed. The food and nourishment of social service is long gone, never was, leaving only the piles of poo in the stinking pot of dictatorial overbearing executive misery, the Dutton Pot, in a government of long, brown malodorous similarities.

    Good lord (apologies Izzy), how did you come across that bollocks?

    I expect to see young libs adopt the brown shirt, plan their crystal night and the addition of a couple smallish lightning flashes to the black uniforms. Yep, GG, we sliding well and truly into a totalitarian shit pit. Step by fucking step. Aided and abetted by the media, lapped up by a largely braindead electorate. You may have heard, the 93 year old woman that had been given 28 days to leave, to be deported because she had failed the health test, even though she had been living here for 11 years with her extended family has recently died. Though, apparently, porter had rescinded the order after SBS reported the story.

    Aren’t we lucky to live in such a compassionate country.

    Yes i can see Pete strutting and striding and stepping and stroking his pet shoulder brushes while strumming his strap and leading his black shirted Border Force goons to that stirring tune written my Angry Anderson and Fraser Anning with additional lyrics by Pauline Hanson…. The Muslim Stompandkick! It could never happen in Australia? bloody oath it could!

  6. Grumpy Geezer

    That earlier comment was for you, terence.

  7. New England Cocky

    One hundred years after WWI ended and we are seeing a repeat of history, the use of a racist political system to protect the undeserving wealthy from the ravages of an egalitarian society.

    Only the undeserving wealthy and corporates should get ‘off the top’ tax cuts rather than raising the threshold that would benefit all Australian voters almost equally.

    Only foreign owned multinational corporations can ravage Australia natural resource at no net cost and with impunity by exploiting the numerous tax loop-holes, resulting in Australian voters receiving nothing for the national resources.

    Oh well, back to the barricades to prepare for the 2022 Federal elections.

    Oh my God the thoughts of Monkton on AIM. I wont encourage the tool by putting ‘ Lord ‘ in front of his name. Is AIM becoming a conduit for the rantings of the global warming denialist nutters now?

  9. Kaye Lee

    Our parliament has enough rantings from denialist nutters to keep them in the spotlight. Craig Kelly will now be rejoined by Malcolm Roberts. Supported by Matt King Coal, and Onward Christensen Soldier, goodness knows what ridiculosity they will get up to.

  10. Keitha Granville

    Hyperbole? Dystopia?
    I think we went way past those a few years ago. The Nazis are well and truly on the rise, and most people won’t notice until their neighbours start disappearing in trucks.

    Old geezers should be seen and ‘herd’ed quietly out back. That is where the 5g controller will dispatch the correct thoughts to young, rather than the current communicators the two morning shows so effectively used by the lnp and gleeson and so ignored by labor who prefer to wait patiently leaving the world to the young who miraculously will defeat the commercial indoctrinating media’s vision for the future.
    Everyone knows climate change is natural and too complicated for us normals. Greenhouses are common and they are warm??KISS??

    ps Kaye are the boy’s you mention queenslanders??

  12. Kaye Lee

    Three of them yes. Craig Kelly is from Sydney. He’s mad as a hatter.

  13. Grumpy Geezer

    As Kaye Lee says Craig Kelly is from Sydney. His electorate of Hughes takes in Engadine Maccers. Why did Scooter Morrison step in to save Kelly’s lard arse in the pre-selection kerfuffle? Photographic evidence?

  14. Kaye Lee

    Twitter can be a cruel place GG

  15. Michael Taylor

    Kelly is an embarrassment to the 21st Century. He certainly doesn’t belong in it.

  16. Kaye Lee

    Kelly’s facebook page is hilarious. Every single post pretty much is rampant climate change denial. He is obsessive.

    And he has a rabid band of followers who provide comments like this….

    “Fewer and fewer thinking Australians are swallowing the crap that’s fed to us by the climate cult and the Marxstream Media. This is why the socialists are so desperate to brainwash and weaponise school kids.”

    No facts will ever make a difference to these weirdos. They have decided that the failed furniture salesman knows it all and the scientists are scammers.

  17. Grumpy Geezer

    I had a look at his FB page….thx a lot KL. Couldn’t resist a post. Did not use the term fuckwit. Close call tho’.

  18. John

    Not being on Facebook, I wonder if anyone has asked Craig ‘Deadhead’ Kelly for a scientific explanation for Europe recording their warmest temperatures ever, given that they’ve been recording them now for around 3,000 years, if not longer?

  19. John

    Thanks Kate Lee. Some of these people should get out of the air-conditioning or at least stick their bloody heads out the window occasionally. Nothing like a life experience as opposed to a Google from the safety of one’s bedroom. Cheers

    Climate denialists, neoliberal trickle down fanatics, banksters and fascist politicians. Corporations, the now extreme right wing media in Australia and just plain brain dead morons are the reasons for the plight we find ourselves in. GOD, great odious dollar, “greed” is the conduit that will destroy the human race. Not before the world is turned into Armageddon if we’re not already there. And there will be no change in the 2022 federal election, no opposition parties permitted in a one party state.

    Labor won’t be cleaning up any mess, ie; a total breakdown of society and civilisation that the fascist pigs have created, they like the rest of us dissenters, will be incarcerated or worse with no future prospects of release just like the hapless asylum seekers on our offshore concentration camps. Revolution now before it really is too late. The media gave the game away when they manipulated and cajoled and lied to get the “right” outcome in the last so called federal election. Please, please WAKE UP!!!!!!
