Fiona Patten is a member of the Victorian Upper House, from the Reason Party (formerly called the Australian Sex Party, which she founded in 2009), and one of the cross-benchers who keeps allowing the state government to maintain a state of emergency over the COVID-69 non-emergency. Because of this support for the Victorian dictator Andrews, – he can’t maintain it legislatively without crossbench MP’s like her – she gets a lot of abuse:
Ms Patten last year reported to parliamentary security a video posted to Facebook in which a man said he would “shave her head” and drag her up the street if she supported the government’s COVID-19 omnibus bill.
“It was just so extreme and so violent.” “It was really outrageous, incredibly threatening and we just thought we can’t let that slide.”
Right, it was a threat and nobody should be doing that.
Patten is otherwise well known because she was for a few years a prostitute, and one day it will be illegal to call a woman a “prostitute”, and while there’ll always be prostitutes, and for some men at some points in their lives it may make sense to just go to them and get it over with, but, whether provider or customer, it is a shameful thing, but for the woman it is an especially degrading thing, she is allowing herself to be defiled which is completely different to what the man is doing, and unless she seeks forgiveness and reforms herself it is something to keep very quiet about, but the ugly covid cult zombie Patten has no shame about it.
She goes on about the threats and other hate she gets (not because she was a prostitute, but the lockdowns she enabled):
I have never seen anything like this. I have never seen the heightened fury and anger that was presented in the messages my office received.
For nearly six weeks we could not answer the phone in our office because it was just people ringing up saying ‘you bitch, we will find you’.
It’s all a total mystery, nobody can understand it.
Again, nobody should be making threats, but here she goes off the deep end:
Patten is pushing to widen the Racial and Religious Tolerance Act to include hate speech targeting people for their gender, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity, as well as addressing online trolling.
A parliamentary committee is reviewing Victoria’s anti-vilification laws, with hearings held last year.
That is definitely coming: women, perverts, freaks, retards, they are all sacred beings, though it will be questionable to what level it will be enforced. There is still something of a reservoir of common sense here, much more than in the UK. You already know to be extra careful if it’s Jews and Muslims, they are the super sacredest beings, but even there you are going to be unlucky to get into trouble, if you can’t help yourself.
But probably people may need to get a bit creative and smarter in how they express things, not be blunt or use slurs as we do here sometimes, but bamboozle the censors and the censorious with humour, parody, irony, sarcasm, exaggeration (in pick up terms “agree and amplify“), frothing extravagantly generous fulsome, very fulsome agreement with whatever nonsense they’re going on about right now, trailblazing experimental bleeding edge shitlibbery, vociferous denunciations of public figures who are lagging behind world historical forces. You are at the 1937 conference of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and you are going to clap for Josef Stalin, and clap harder and louder than any one, with a straight face, and will ostentatiously be the last man to take his seat, for that extra clap.
You’ll be fair – yes white men have achieved certain things in Australia, you will grudgingly admit, but they haven’t sufficiently acknowledged their debt to the Aborigines, who pioneered various things, … read Bruce Pascoe’s Dark Emu to find out what those things were (maybe astronomy is one), and later question whether Pascoe, being white as a snowflake, had in fact missed some other things, and denounce him, and go a little further than his inverted internalised racism would allow.
Or pick some of the Australian Left’s favourite people, their heroes from years past, and tear them to shreds, like say Prime Minister Paul Keating, who practically devoted his entire maiden speech in parliament to telling women to get back in the damn kitchen where they bloody well belong, so men could find jobs. Hammer away at this, unceasingly. There are all sorts of ways you can use this fact about Keating to launch into various interesting topics, all the while hewing to approved thought in an over the top way, while making absurd condemnations of truth, beauty, and reality.
