The venerable and much respected American columnist and commentator Charles Krauthammer famously noted that to understand US politics you have to start with the realisation that the right thinks the left is stupid and the left thinks the right is evil. Normally this would also apply in Australia, but the Malcolm Turnbull-led Liberals have managed to let themselves be labelled as stupid by their own base, so we have two stupid wings flapping in our political wind.
Even in the wake of the Super Saturday by-elections, in which their vote sank, they have stubbornly – er, stupidly – refused to understand that most Liberal and National voters do NOT agree with them on energy policies based on global warming scenarios, they do NOT agree with them on high rates of immigration, and they do NOT agree with them on Malcolm Turnbull as PM.
The sheer stupidity of Australia’s self-harming, renewables-driven energy policies can only be explained by Malcolm Turnbull’s evangelical obsession with the unproven theory that global warming is caused by CO2 produced by coal-fired power stations. This is despite rational scientific information being available freely on the internet to debunk that as ideological fraud.
The self-evident indigestion Australia is experiencing from an over-indulgent intake of migrants either escapes the Liberals because they are too stupid, or because they have an agenda that tries to deny the facts.
As for Malcolm Turnbull and his consistent polling as preferred Prime Minister, look at the alternative: polls only offer a choice between him and Bill Shorten. That’s like a choice between a cooked shit sandwich and an uncooked one.
