The Rainbow Ringwraiths

Apr 5, 2017

Totalitarians and fascists have always sought to demonise their opponents, in part by marking them out from the “normal” majority. They are clearly identified one way or another as recalcitrants, and treated accordingly. Simply consider how Jews fared as the

Beer, Bibles, Bullies and Bigotry

Rainbow Big Brother is Here

Dec 6, 2016

As more than one wit has quipped, dystopian novels like Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty-Four were not meant to be taken as instruction manuals. They were to remain in the fiction section, and not be reclassified as works

Banning Real Help for Those Seeking Change

Christianity Not Allowed

Dec 2, 2016

Things are going absolutely nuts with the Christophobes in the West. They are so full of hate for any believer who dares to take his faith seriously, especially in the public arena, that they have launched an all-out war on

Faith and Freedom vs Communist Cuba

Grieving with Godly Grief

Australia’s Leading Cultural Marxist?

Oct 25, 2016

I realise that many contenders for this title could be mentioned, but it is becoming clear that one man is head and shoulders above all the rest at the moment. I refer to Victorian Labor Premier Dan Andrews, who has
