The bottom of the barrel

By Christian Marx

Once again Murdoch attack dog, Rita Panahi has outdone herself with her article (pay-walled) on Harvey Weinstein. Weinstien is at the centre of a series of sex scandals and has been sacked from his own company. While Weinstein should be rightly condemned for his actions, it is the extreme partisan nonsense coming from the sock puppet Panahi that grows tiresome.

Never one to let an opportunity go when it comes to putting the boot into the left, she has bizarrely tried to tie in left-wing politics with Harvey`s conduct. What has this got to do with the left?

Yes, Weinstien was a donor of Clinton’s campaign, but so what? Is Rita suggesting that the left are more deviant than the right? This man has done some disgraceful things, but so too has right-wing poster boy, the pedophile apologist, Milo Yianapolous. The silence was deafening when Milo’s shocking interview surfaced, in which he appeared to advocate 13 year old sex with an adult.

So too was the silence and defence of George Pell. Apparently, according to the right-wing zealot, Andrew Bolt, “Cardinel George Pell was the victim of a witch hunt.”

Panahi goes on to put the boot in to progressive causes and rants like a demented chicken over “virtue signalling against the NRA.” This woman is a hoot.

Towards the end of her article, she then goes onto say, and I quote; “Hollywood’s moral compass is so warped, you are more likely to be ostracized for being a conservative than a sexual predator.” What asinine crap! Weinstien has now been exposed for the deviant that he is. Unfortunately he was allowed to continue on his way for far too long. This had nothing to do with what side of the political fence he sat on, but everything to do with the power that he wielded in Hollywood.

The silence is also deafening when it comes to Murdoch’s Middle Eastern war interests, via his company Geanie Energy. Why are Muslims demonized constantly in his grotty rags? Why is Murdoch ludicrously pro Israel, when the human rights abuses in that country are now known around the world? It wouldn’t have something to do with his drilling rights in the Israeli occupied Golan Heights, would it?

But oh no, let’s focus on the deviant left. Two can play this game, Panahi!

The hypocrisy as always from the usual Newscorp ghouls is breathtaking. If you are going to throw stones, Rita Panahi, best you move out of that glass house.

Not only do these hacks scrape the bottom of the barrel … they go underneath it looking for more grime. Clean out your own shithouse before you go conflating issues and pontificating on the so-called deviant left.

    I for one shall cry no tears when that foetid old toad Murdoch breathes it’s last putrid breath.

    And finally, an article that has the balls to show some teeth to that organisation of gutter trolls. More power to your pen Mr Marx.
    More please. Much more.

    Speaking from personal experience – which can be completely discounted because I am just a woman, I have found unwanted sexual advances occurs from any man (and occasionally woman) – no matter their political/ideological/religious beliefs or position of power.

    I know some men are, finally, speaking out, finally not turning a blind eye, however, we have a long way to go, baby…

    I would like to congratulate the moderators on this site – I am a right-winger and so I have enjoyed some torrid abuse on this site over the years, but that is fine. I have only ever been censored once on this site and when I complained about it the host of the site apologised, which I respect. Conversely, I tried to post a link to a Politico article on a Daily Telegraph blog today and was censored. I contacted the Daily Telegraph to find out why I was being censored and they hung-up on me twice. I have already contacted a senator for assistance in this matter. The censorship is disgusting and I don’t intend to take it lying down. I’m sick of the growing Fascism in this country.

    Cheers

    Murdoch and Panahi are trash that need to be thrown out. Their divisive, lying and hateful rhetoric is causing this country to turn on it’s most vulnerable, the unemployed, poor, the sick, the elderly, the homeless and minority groups. Australia is no longer the land of a fair go.
    Murdoch using the refugees so as to get what he wants is criminal, the fact that the sheep believe his vile narrative is enough to make me feel ill.

    Panahi is a regular on Sky News and also always appears on Bolts crap show on said channel as well…………….. She and her fellow RWNJs all love Donald Trump,and that is why they have all dumped on Weinstein,because they never mention the fact that their hero Trump makes Weinstein look like Mother bloody Theresa when it comes to the art form of being a sexual deviant or at least his equal.
    She is constantly ”Agrieved” all the time about something or other, Labor party,HRC, Oh and her and Bolts favourite…. ” Cultural Marxist’, whatever the hell that means…. yep, she and her right wing friends are idelogical insane,vicious vindictive nasty immoral scum bags!!

    Please tell me that you did not pay to read Rita Panahi’s article.

  8. helvityni

    I didn’t know who Rita Panahi was; Googled and found out; so pleased I DON’T know her.

    As for Weinstein, nothing but a stain on humanity…

    I don’t know if any of you listened to that secret police recording of Wienstien trying to lure the young woman into his room?..I listened to only a short piece before I turned it off..but the pathetic whining and pleading was tragic to the point of certifiable psychotic in it’s almost weeping winciness..God! that a grown man could sink so low that he would substitute gross power over sensitive manners to attract the female of the species. It is not only an abuse of position of power and the rape of a woman, but it is also the betrayal of an inherited male dignity. Heavens knows we males are lacking much of THAT most of the time, but I would hope that we could be seen as at least more..well..”gentlemanly” (for want of a word) in our advances toward women.
    And if you are going to make a fool of yourself, at least do it in a clean shirt and with groomed hair!

    Fundamentalist are all the same. AKA Rita Panahi, Bolt They are a damaged sponge; looking for cause. These people hook on to an idea/ideology early in their lives and then ride it out to the sunset and never revisit their belief system. Many start out doing it for attention seeking purposes and some hook onto these ideas in their impressionable years.Usually these types only align themselves with the power. IE Nazi’s or Murdoch etc.

  13. Kaye Lee

    The fact that there are photographs of the First Lady lying naked on a rug and handcuffed to a briefcase in the now President’s plane might give a clue as to the Donald’s opinion of women, including those he purports to love.

    Yet the deplorables love it. Sad.

    Christian Marx would be quietly satisfied with
    Media Watch confirming the hunch as to the topic, and also fixing on Miranda Devine, another serial black propagandist of global standard.
