What a beautiful sentiment, Kerry. Thank you for sharing.

“…our names are Dom & James. We are not 12 year old sluts. Your complaints will be answered with insults.”
Theantibogan admin refuse to take screenshots of this Facebook page. The admins of the ’12 Year Old Sluts’ page are more than happy to publish photos of 12 year old girls and boys with meme-style captions attached that denigrate and ridicule. Let’s not forget that these are minors that we’re talking about, and as you can see from the screenshot above, the page has over 214,000 followers.
That is fucking disgraceful.
Here’s some more of James Silverwood:
Dominic Terry has been identified as the other admin on the ’12 Year Old Sluts’ page. How ironic it is that he says the page was created to inform parents of the world how screwed up their children are. How proud his parents must be of him…
ROOKIE Broadwater MP Verity Barton has lambasted rail passengers as “icky”, called on welfare payments to be stopped for single parents and couples with children, and said Prime Minister Julia Gillard and former leader Kevin Rudd should stop breathing.
Barton, third-choice LNP candidate for the Gold Coast seat, also said she did not believe in climate change, wanted WorkChoices brought back and described some voters as bogans.
Ms Barton’s outrageous views have been posted on her Facebook page.
The 26-year-old beat Labor’s four-term veteran Peta-Kaye Croft in the state election in March.
Ms Barton, the state’s youngest female in Parliament, got the nod to contest the high-profile seat for the LNP after one candidate resigned when he was caught drink-driving and the replacement candidate was dumped after photos emerged of him taking part in a swingers’ club event.
Political sources last week revealed Ms Barton’s Facebook offerings, some dating to 2009 and her pre-MP days as a shop assistant and Broadwater’s LNP state electorate council chair.
* Sounds like you (a friend) encounter icky QR passengers often.
* I don’t even believe climate change exists.
* Welfare for parents (single or coupled) just shouldn’t exist. If you fall pregnant you’ve got nine months to save/budget.
* Is Craig Emerson (Federal Minister for Trade) drinking? Or is he always just such a d—head?
* If certain people want to reduce carbon emissions they should discourage flatulence and breathing by certain people (Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard, Penny Wong).
* Do not listen to the bogan when it says it doesn’t care about politics, for it is lying to you.
Ms Barton and Premier Campbell Newman declined to comment.
Stop the Hammered Hate Music Festival Petition
We originally wrote about the hate festival here
Also briefly interviewed by The Project is a Queensland politician. In general terms, the reaction by politicians to the event has been routine: condemnation. However Independent Queensland MP Rob Messenger…has launched an online petition in protest against the controversial neo-Nazi “Hammered Music Festival”, after being contacted by members of the public supporting his recent comments on 4BC radio.
The petition calls for the Premier and Opposition Leader to commit to supporting legislative changes that will ensure Queensland has the toughest laws in Australia which enable the banning and punishment of neo-Nazis and other race hate proponents.
The petition notes that local, state and federal political leaders have been reluctant to publicly condemn, or commit to using all laws necessary to ban, this Neo Nazi, race hatred-inspired gathering, with some political leaders blaming inadequate laws as an excuse for not being able to ban Neo Nazi rallies, events and activities.
We wonder what the people of Queensland think after having this event imposed on them for the third year in a row, right after the tragic floods of 2010 have just been commemorated.
Is Queensland going to be forever tainted as the Hate State? With all the condemnatory international publicity will international tourists think twice about Queensland as a destination, thus depriving the state of much-needed revenue?
In other situations elsewhere local government has been able to use its regulations to prevent undesirable groups from gathering. And one remembers the efficiency and enthusiasm with which former Queensland governments were able to silence demonstrations against the Vietnam War for instance.
With a State election coming up we also wonder how much political wisdom would seek to alarm mainstream Queenslanders, to insult and offend minorities within the state, including Indigenous Queenslanders, and to make Queensland a laughing stock in the rest of Australia, who has so far managed to make these freaks largely unwelcome.
So what are we going to think of when someone says “music in Queensland”
The popular and successful Woodford Folk Festival, which draws people from all over the world?
Or yet another unwanted hate music gathering of gutter grubs?
