but anyone who thinks the abc doesn't bring a certain perspective and agenda to any issue is, frankly, either kidding themselves or not that bright...

"you say that Asians seem to have taken the victim position, just as Australia's Indigenous blackfellas.....I wonder what the Dago's/Wops/wogs think about that?"

didn't say that about asians at all

agreed with indo that the abc assumes this position, and transposes it onto asians...

which as indo pointed out, created a fear in the asian community... fear that proved unjustified for the vast majority of asian people it would seem... bit of a negative feedback loop effect going on there...

I've got no doubt there were instances of racism towards asians, but tbh, when I saw the whole shitshow unfolding, I held great fears for how this might shape australians perceptions of chinese people and asians more generally... however, despite the ever mounting evidence ...mountaining evidence!!! ...as to the nefariousness of the ccp... things have remained a relaxed pretty chill ...an astoundingly surprisingly mellow relaxed pretty chill actually...

which only proves to me, how surprisingly un-racist most austrailians are, despite all the stirrings from various protaganists and antagonists...

so so surprised

Im sure your freshly university educated uber wokers like benjamin law can find a heap of micro greviances to natter about, but Im yet to hear of one significant incident...

It really just goes back to media# trying to get clicks or sell a story.

These types of stories get attention because they play on peoples emotions, i do think in the last year or so things have hit another level though where you have to question pretty much everything you read.

Every week or two there seems to be an example, this past week was union protest, oh sorry far right groups.

Yeah great win and amazing second half come back, easily the best team this year, as a Pies man i hate seeing other teams win but id much rather see an underdog type team like Melbourne win than a team like Geelong, Hawthorn, Sydney or even Richmond.

Kind of feels good that of the four teams that beat you this year as crap as we have been, we still beat the premiers too.

Australia is poised to recover strongly ( a second half comeback ) as soon as the shackles are released .

Let the good times ROLL .

■ AUS Household Wealth in 2Q21 rose 6.1%QoQ and 20.9%YoY to a record US$12.77 trillion, 20.6% above pre-COVID levels. The wealth ratio rose to a record 895%, 107ppts above pre-COVID levels. This points to a V-consumer boom as 2Q21’s 9.7% Saving Rate falls below 4% and $180bn of excess saving is spent- altogether 13-14% of GDP!

Indo - some recent stats I read on the ABS site .

Incarceration rates in Oz per 100k are about 200 in most states except NT which is 900 . Based on average daily number .

Indigenous rates per100k are around 2000 with WA 4000 . Based on average daily number .

92% male , 8% female . No others .

These states go against the graph you recently posted . Any comment ?

Thats because the graph and stats i posted was deaths in custody comparing indigenous to non indigenous (i think based on per 100 people in custody), not Incarceration rates :D

Incarceration rates are a totally different topic and obviously based on crimes committed.

Expect as will affect black people more than others due to very low vaccination rates, off course that is peoples choice and has nothing to with ethnicity or skin colour.

From the UK Sunday Times:

ROD LIDDLE
So Trump was right: the election was rigged. And our next one will be too
Rod Liddle
Sunday September 26 2021, 12.01am BST, The Sunday Times
Share

To what extent, do you think, is Joe Biden abiding by his solemn election pledge to “undo the moral and national shame of the previous administration”? You can judge for yourself by the television pictures of terrified Haitian refugees on the US-Mexico border being horse-whipped by mounted American rangers.

Trump did not do anything like that. If he had attempted to, Hollywood and the partisan coastal media would have imploded in a plasma of outrage. And yet Biden has largely escaped their censure.

I’m not sure, either, that the little old business in Afghanistan entirely banished America’s moral and national shame. Nor Biden’s inability to remember where the hell he is or who he is talking to; nor his geopolitical pig ignorance or his tendency to doze off at crucial moments. I think, in answer to my original question, that America’s “moral and national shame” is absolutely thriving under the present incumbent, perhaps hitting levels not seen since James Buchanan was in office.

The American public is slowly waking up to the fact that they are being led by an ineffectually devious, senile halfwit. Donald Trump is back in the lead in the opinion polls. Imagine how awful a president must be if people would rather that sack of meat with mittens were back in charge.

Soon the public will wake up to something even more unpleasant and sinister: that the last presidential election was a fraud, rigged by big business, the labour unions and, more than anything, the media and the tech companies. If that election had taken place in any other country, it would have been called “unfree”. And, as more and more evidence emerges, it terrifies me that the same thing could happen here.

What, you argue, the BBC deliberately withholds stories damaging to its preferred party or candidate? Facebook and co refuse to carry news stories harmful to the opposition because they class them as “false news”? Yes, I think you see my point.

We already knew, even as Biden was declaring victory, that Facebook and Twitter had cut off Donald Trump’s access to the electorate. He was deliberately rendered voiceless. Before then, they — and the national media — had smothered stories alleging the Biden family’s peddling of influence and Biden’s crackhead son and his dubious business interests in Ukraine. False news, we were informed. Nope, not all of it was false at all, it transpired.

What we didn’t know until we were told in February this year, courtesy of Time magazine, was that there actually was a conspiracy — a secret coalition of chief executives, labour unions, left-wing pressure groups and media companies — to manage what information was available to the voting public. Its aim, as The Wall Street Journal put it, was to “suppress unwanted elements of US political conversation”. What a wonderful phrase.

Time magazine reported this as if the cabal — it called the arrangement a cabal — had been acting heroically. To save the US public from making the same mistake again and electing that Brobdingnagian boor — and to do so by suppressing stories favourable to him.

SPONSORED

Now we discover that General Mark Milley, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, was also conspiring against the president. Twice Milley called Chinese diplomats to let them know that he would countermand any order from Trump to attack China — which seems to a lot of US conservatives to be an act of pure treason. Milley also went behind his president’s back to connive with the Democrat leader of the House, Nancy Pelosi.

The reasoning for this was that Trump was “unhinged” — a familiar notion peddled by the media for the four years of his presidency. Was he? I don’t know. He didn’t seem terribly hinged to me, but then Americans rarely do. But more unhinged than your average American — or Joe Biden? Whatever the case, that election one year ago was plainly rigged. Not by fraudulent postal votes. But by an affluent elite conspiring, brutally at times, to ensure that the American public heard only one side of the story.

What worries me most is that so few liberal commentators seem capable of understanding that this was a grotesque manipulation of democracy. And yet surely they must see it, no matter how appalling Trump seemed to them (and indeed, quite often, to me). Instead, those very acts that subverted democracy are depicted as valorous.

The author of that article in Time said the conspirators “were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it”. Wow. Isn’t that a little chilling? And are you looking forward to a “fortified” general election over here?

just got myself access to a flash tv and good internet connection, been catching up on some four corners 'expose's' on the trump russia connection and fox news...

the trump russia one was particularly hilarious, all the dramatic spy movie suspense building, the corruption, the players, the building of a case, ...to present a 'story'... except she missed the whole bloody story! ...well, the real story...

sarah ferguson... are you still a journalist?

totally overlooked clinton and co. and steele connections... which has proven to be the real 'collusion', the real 'conspiracy'...

seriously sarah, I expect better...

only half way through the fox one, but the gross hypocrisy and lack of any objectivity is astounding...

she seems to have totally missed all the misinformation and wayward conspiracy theories coming from CNN, and the sexual deprivation of matt lauer...

missed hunter's laptop shutdown...

missed all the big joe 'russian misinformation' stories...

sorry sarah and abc, but the bias and ommissions are glaring... pure one sided propaganda... calling out supposed propaganda...

I posted this before on another thread but it fits in with above . The Silent Majority have had enough and are being called upon . Spartacus is rallying them . The worm has turned and the wheels are in motion .

"My name is Spartacus, and I’ve had enough.

We have been forced to watch America and the Free World spin into inexorable decline due to a biowarfare attack. We, along with countless others, have been victimized and gaslit by propaganda and psychological warfare operations being conducted by an unelected, unaccountable Elite against the American people and our allies.

Our mental and physical health have suffered immensely over the course of the past year and a half. We have felt the sting of isolation, lockdown, masking, quarantines, and other completely nonsensical acts of healthcare theater that have done absolutely nothing to protect the health or wellbeing of the public from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, we are watching the medical establishment inject literal poison into millions of our fellow Americans without so much as a fight.

We have been told that we will be fired and denied our livelihoods if we refuse to vaccinate. This was the last straw.

We have spent thousands of hours analyzing leaked footage from Wuhan, scientific papers from primary sources, as well as the paper trails left by the medical establishment.

What we have discovered would shock anyone to their core."
