#254 – Outrage

21 09 2012

The picture of the bogan that we here have painted for all y’all over the past three years could be described in various ways. The bogan is a multi-faceted beast, hard to easily pigeonhole, which is why such a task requires an exhaustive categorisation of over 250 different things that it likes. But if one were challenged to boil it all down to a single adjective, surely one that would sit near the top of any list is ‘angry’.

The bogan is constantly slighted against. It is always having its free speech restrained. It’s furious at moochers who receive unemployment benefits. It is mad as hell when the government considers reducing the first homeowners’ grant or baby bonus. It can’t believe that our Prime Minister would lie to them about introducing a carbon tax on everything. It can’t believe that our Prime Minister would lie to them about introducing a mining tax before watering it down to basically nothing.

The bogan is angry. But this anger is inchoate, ill-directed and convulsive. What the bogan needs is a rage vector. Something through which it can channel all of this pent-up fury and unleash it in a flaming burst of irate sanctimony.

Enter the idiot Muslim protester.

Ever since our diggers gave them a proper pantsing at Gallipoli, the Muslim has been an appropriate target for the bogan’s rage and self-inflated superiority. Most of the time, though, it’s simply the latest in a line of whichever minority group the bogan media sees fit to target with claims of laziness, criminality or general evil.

But when a bunch of fundie dickheads decide to trot around the Sydney CBD requesting that a person they can’t identify should be divorced from his head, the bogan outrage machine kicks into overdrive. Every politician seeking the bogan vote gets a free kick, indicating how un-Australian it is to stage a violent protest based on religious grounds.

Shock Jocks get a free kick, stoking the bogan flame, insisting that these people (to wit, all Mussies) have no place in the country and should leave unless they adopt Australian (to wit, bogan) values. Karl Stefanovic continues to say stupid things.  Strangely, Scott Morrison has been quiet.

The bogan can now sit back in its Gainsville chair, watching its Harvey Norman plasma, and bask in the magnificence of being Australian. It furiously condemns a religion of a billion people based on the antics of some fools from Sydney’s south west. It furiously yells in agreement with Ray Hadley on the radio. It furiously cracks open a Mexican beer and furiously slams it down.

It then goes to its room to furiously perform the stranger on itself in celebration of its Australian self-satisfaction.

Not bad. Not bad at all.

The definition of bogan in this article is a bit narrow. A subspecies has been described, leaving out eg. That huge subtype..the unemployed, low rent bogan. Likewise, the Muslim subtype is more representative of Islamic males than you suggest. We need a new name for these kinds of bogans, cub is part of the way there…maybe wogans..working bogans?

I don’t know what you mean by Diggers giving Muslims “A proper pantsing at Gallipoli”. You do know that the Turks humiliated the Australians and rubbed our arses in the dirt at Gallipoli dont you? So much so that our anuses are still feeling the irritation a century later.

Yes. TBL

This post will likely need an update after this weekend’s white pride protest/riot in Melbourne;

“”Let’s show these bearded goat-herders that we run this country, not them and if they don’t like it, they can f*** off back to whatever s***hole they came from on the leaky boat they showed up on. Spread the word and come ready for a battle for our rights and our land. They thought Cronulla riots were bad. We grew there, they flew there! Australians unite!””

Great.

I directly copied and pasted this from the article, but surely it’s “we grew here, they flew here”? Yahoo error.

And I bet you London to a brick that if there was a protest march against gay marriage (lest it lead to interspecies marriage), both these sets of dickheads would be side by side, exchanging high-fives while chanting ‘kill all faggots’ or the like.

Oh well, I guess we all have our prejudices. It could be racism, gender, one’s sexual orientation, religion, politicial affiliation or social class. I have to confess, I hate pricks. If you want to condemn for my prickist (or is it prickophobic?) behaviour, fine…but you are still a prick!

Sorry, but once I saw that young child holding the sign, well outrage is warranted in my humble opinion. Surely the outrage was coming from the other side of the fence in this case? Non? And for a really stupid reason?

Of course it’s ridiculous for a kid to be holding a sign like that. It’s ridiculous for the sign to even exist. But that photo allowed bogans everywhere to feel validated in their generalised hatred for Muslims. That’s the problem. TBL

22 09 2012

Children are also made to held signs at Tea Party rallies, anti-choice protests outside family planning clinics, anti-multiculturalism rallies et el.
Unfortunately, sign or not, most are indoctrinated to their parents’ racism, prejudices and beliefs , whether they hold signs or not.

The mother of the child who held that sign has come out to say that they went along to what they thought was to be a peaceful protest and the child picked the sign up from the ground. As she was taking a photo of him holding it up, so was someone else, and now we’ve all seen it. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I do know that one split second of time captured on film may not tell the story you think it does.

I know I often saythe wrong thing but with something like 50 nato peace keeper/trainers killed by muslim ratbag s in the Afghanistan police and military I am a bit inclined to agree with some of the bogan sentiments.
They want their deseart to themselves? Lets give em deseart, about a trillion tonnes of neculear candle ‘s worth of deseart.

Given their religion is so full of intolerance for others, tolerant Muslims need to take a much more high profile stand. I can’t work out the chicken egg here….primitive, violent misogyny, or a religion that professes these things.

You describe / dismiss the protesters as ‘fundie dickheads’. Seems to me that they’re more like the Muslim community’s answer to the bogan. Loud, self righteous, angry. Outrage begets outrage.

Valid point, although fundamentalist religion isn’t really a bogan trait. The bogan will only pay sufficient lip service to a religion to give itself a good-money chance of a pleasing afterlife. Hedging its bets. TBL

Penny Wong used her child (legal, not biological) as a propaganda tool to influence the gay vote in parliament. People use children for their causes all the time, because of the perception our society have of children.

Sorry guys – I’m with the bogans on this one.

If you want to behead me for saying that your religion is a crock of shite, then you probably don’t have me on your side cause as far as I’m concerned all religion is a crock of shite.

I have Muslim friends who were as shocked (and possibly even more pissed off, because they know what it means for them) about the riots than I was. But having worked in Bankstown, I know just what some of these people are like.

Hmm, maybe that’s why libtards like Muslims, if you’ve ever disagreed with a libtard they project a lot of venom and become quite facist.

However the Liberal party types have become much the same these days.

OMG Juliar! The only politician in history to have ever lied!

27 09 2012
Ash - In Yr McMansions, Glassin Yr Carnts

Hmmmm, never thought about it that way.

The difference is that if you threaten a libtard with physical violence they run away (possibly calling you a fascist or something). Threaten a Muslim Lebo with violence, you’re probably getting bashed by the cousins.

It was heartening to see the NSW coppers give the deadshits a good flogging, particularly old mate with the can of spray in each hand great work! I think these rag heads thought they would get public sympathy, nice to see my tax dollars being spent on something of value for a change. I notice they haven’t fired up again funny what a good hiding does to keep toe rags in line

I think TBL picked a strange target with this one. There just isn’t any justification for what happened in Sydney. None! If the bogans are outraged, then I don’t blame them. Remember Piss Christ? If ever there was justification for religious outrage, that was probably it! Did you see Christians kicking police heads in and causing chaos?

Just had my hair cut and the girls were all talking about going to a reading blah, blah, blah. You would need to be terminally gullible to believe that sh$t.

Simon, I used to work in an industry closely aligned to the hairdressing industry. The shit I had to listen to amongst my fellow staff members was amazing! Psychics make a killing off people like this! Hardly an active brain cell amongst the lot of them! I politely declined going to a “reading” with a group of women a few years ago despite being told that this shyster was “100% accurate”! When I tried to tell them that it was all trickery and not to waste their money, I was given anecdotes about how so and so met their current boyfriend and shyster had actually predicted it!!!!! I could have predicted that this particular woman would meet another bloke as she dated someone new every second week!!!! Now that I think about it, I should be a bloody psychic! I hear it pays well!

I went to one once purely for a laugh and coz I was doing a Boguette at the time who was mad into that sh!t.

The psychic said that I would be a millionaire before I was 25.

I’m 22 now. My credit is so bad people won’t even take my cash.

Drove into Sydney yesterday arvo and it’s a parking lot heading out for 45km, go back out this morn and it’s the same heading in. You Sydney mob are mad. I get annoyed if I miss a light change in Adelaide. Can’t imagine sitting on a freeway going nowhere for hours each day.

This is why I don’t like libtards or the right wingers, they all want massive immigration so they can sit on their fat arses rent collecting or for the sake of a f#cking kebab shop.

Sydney definitely is a case of f#ck off we’re full.

Sorry TBL. But your dead wrong on this one. The vast majority of Australians are pissed off with Muslims because the leftist media makes them out as the victims. The Fewfacts group and the ABC have been the apologists for dick heads for to long. I admit that nationalism brings out the bogan in force, but it doesnt mean they’re wrong. In the few weeks since the protest i’ve only heard 1 muslims leader in Australia condemn the protest(against free speech) without any “buts”. I’m sorry if im considered a bogan too, but i hold the right of free speech very seriously, including the right to offend and be offended.

I recall during the Cronulla riots they very much made out the bogans to be the bad guys, for the most part. Gang bashing is a rite of passage for all wog bastards in this country.

I’m outraged TBL is defending Mussies

Caarnt Be Glassed - Formerly known as AntiPajero

I’m in agreement with the need for outrage over this incomprehensibly destructive protest. I don’t think I’ve ever been more dismayed by the actions of a group. They all seemed so homogenous in their uncompromising and unrepentant communication, expression and purpose. And so very alien.

I know they represent only a minority of their communities and religion, but I don’t understand how they can thrive among so many who denounce them (and they do denounce them, you’ll find it if you look).

I think the TBL message here is spot on though. I would hope that I can differentiate my outrage from that of the bogan because I hope my outrage dissipates over time as these fundie morons and their obscene attitudes dissolve through the generations. The bogan, I think, hopes that never happens.

17 10 2012

I don’t believe they’re a tiny minority, that’s the scary part. The women, when they’re allowed to talk often subscribe to the same f’ed up third world belief system. They need to be kept under tight control in the west, because their view on how society should work is incompatible, without compromise. We made a mistake letting these people in. I guess there’s a slim chance they’lll change their views over time, but history says not.

16 10 2012
Caarnt Be Glassed - Formerly known as AntiPajero

I don’t really think freedom of speech is an issue here. Not a single person in the full spectrum between us and them has actually been suppressed for saying what they want to say.

Was this piece written by a bogan? Awful grammar. I understand the stylistic intentions but interesting content was rendered unreadable by poor syntax. In the words of Ezra Pound, ‘If you’re going to talk about shitting, talk about shitting’.

Just ponting out a fact. Diggers managed to do nothing in galipoli. They only advanced to the beachhead. And later retreated with out any victory. Read some history mate. Aussies never had any victory in galipoli. They basically couldnt win against an impoverished under equipped turkish army.

“It furiously condemns a religion of a billion people based on the antics of some fools from Sydney’s south west.” Some fools, acting deliberately and exactly in line with a Scripture, immutable and unchangeable, that ENTIRELY justifies their behaviour. There’s a reason why noone will print Mein Kampf.

The Australian force that landed were badly informed of the topographic of the beaches they landed on, and some seriously stupid orders when they had a second landing in what where proper landing craft (before WW2) but once again the concept of gaining the high ground did not occur or was ignored not sure who commanded (Possible Pom Not sure though) and yes they so underestimate (WEEK MAN) of Europe,Once again a POM analysis by non other than Winston Churchill Chief of the Admiralty ( yes he so new what he as doing) Trench warfare once again.
