Invasions

White supremacists in Queensland, which was run for decades by an avowed and active ally of apartheid South Africa, now demand that their university be a safe space from the very existence of Aboriginal history.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump demonstrates his complete and utter unfamiliarity with the pro-life movement, which has always advocated action against (overwhelmingly male) abortionists rather than against women, and then in a much wider context with which it is clear that Trump has made absolutely no effort to acquaint himself.

  1. Trump wants to nuke Mexico if it doesn't pay for his wall. Actually nuke it.

    1. Quite. Not much sanctity of life there.

  2. He has already recanted with all the grace he can manage, which is none. You're right, he's obviously never had a conversation with a pro-life activist, he's possibly never met one.

    That was how I first met you, and yes it was more than 20 years ago, makes you think doesn't it?

    Prosecute the women! I've heard it all now! God protect us from well-meaning amateurs. Never mind ill-meaning amateurs like Donald Trump.

    1. Prosecuting the women was what Trump's old friends at Planned Parenthood and the Clinton Foundation told him that pro-lifers believed in. And he believed them.

    2. Exactly. I have never, literally never, heard a pro-lifer say that, and I've been involved since the Sixties. Trump sounded like a foreigner who couldn't quite speak English yet, or a toddler who was just learning to talk, it was as strange and wrong as that to the ears of pro-lifers.

  3. Loving that use of the critique of safe spaces against the Not Very Breitbarts themselves.
