All the dumb things

 

I find minions of the left amazingly amusing, in a lets watch fools bash then selves in the face with a hammer sort of way they are often unintentionally hilarious when they are outraged about the most ridiculous matters and there are few that can match the confected outrage over the comments made by Piers Ackerman on this morning’s “Insider’s”  program;

News Limited columnist Piers Akerman has breathed new life into outrage over Prime Minister Julia Gillard being forced to defend the sexuality her partner, Tim Mathieson, by suggesting rumours about Mr Mathieson had been doing the rounds of the Canberra press gallery since 2010.

‘‘A lot of people in the Canberra gallery have been saying the same thing [as Perth radio host Howard Sattler],’’ Mr Akerman said on the ABC Insiders program to the evident shock of co-panelists.

Insiders host Barrie Cassidy immediately denounced Mr Akerman’s comment, saying: ‘‘You’ve just done precisely what Howard Sattler did and passed on rumours and that’s just as pathetic, quite frankly.’’

Mr Akerman initially denied passing on baseless rumours. ‘‘I passed on the same question that people said initially when she moved in. And nobody took it any further and that’s why I’m saying [Sattler] was wrong Barrie,’’ he said.

Later, Mr Akerman delivered an apology to Ms Gillard and Mr Mathieson, who he described as a ‘‘blokey bloke’’. ‘‘If the Prime Minister is watching, as she usually does, I hope she hasn’t taken any offence at anything I’ve said this morning,’’ Mr Akerman said.

Twitter immediately lit up with calls for Mr Akerman’s suspension from the show. The ABC did not return calls.

This sort of reaction is very sadly the reason that the “politically correct” brigade are so loathed and dismissed  and why the ABC are failing in their duty to be fair and balanced. Frankly it showed me that Barry Cassidy, should not be hosting such a program especially as he is “besties” with Tim Matherson Piers is being pilloried for nothing here but that is hardly surprising given how desperate the left are to win against an ascendant conservasphere . That’s the trouble, they have the taste of Howard Satler’s blood on their lips  and now they want more….

    Sack Piers Akerman from ABC INSIDERS NOW.

  2. Richard Ryan says:

    ” Listen here you big fat heap of shit” Fatty Vautin to Piers Akerman.

  3. Iain Hall says:

    What Ackerman said is by no stretch of the imagination a sacking offence

  4. Richard Ryan says:

    Yes it is! nudge, nudge wink, wink, Akerman was pushing the smeer for all its worth.

  5. Iain Hall says:

    Did you even watch the show Richard?
    I don’t think so

  6. Richard Ryan says:

    Yes I watched the ABC Insiders this morning, and every other Sunday morning at 9am, and Barry was correct in pulling the grub into line, and then the mealy mouthed grub, tried to correct it by sucking up to Gillard—–SACK THE GRUB NOW! from ABC Insiders.

  7. Richard Ryan says:

    Iain have you read any of Piers latest gems on his blog-site, such as “Gillard dives to the bottom of the sewer” or “TICK, TOCK, GILLARD CAN’T HEAR THE CLOCK” OR “Gillard cooks herself over a phony menu”

  8. Richard Ryan says:

    Piers Akerman the poor mans Andrew Bolt on ABC INSIDERS.

  9. GD says:

    Piers latest gems on his blog-site, such as “Gillard dives to the bottom of the sewer” or “TICK, TOCK, GILLARD CAN’T HEAR THE CLOCK” OR ‘Gillard cooks herself over phony menu’

    Well Richard, hasn’t she dived to the bottom of the sewer?

    What’s wrong with ‘“TICK, TOCK, GILLARD CAN’T HEAR THE CLOCK”?

    or ‘Gillard cooks herself over phony menu’?

    You’re getting a bit touchy in your old age, or is that because September 14 is looming and Tony Abbott will be your new boss?

    Piers Ackerman writes the most erudite political blog in Australia. I wouldn’t expect you to understand it. He has myriad commenters who are equally knowledgeable. It’s no wonder that you’re all at sea when reading his blog. It’s also no wonder that you are currently barred from commenting on his blog. Piers doesn’t suffer idiots easily.

  10. Richard Ryan says:

    Yeah did you watch the mealy mouthed grub on ABC INSIDERS, he back-tracked, when Barry pulled him up—–a lot of his bloggers are cowards like you, who post under screen names—gutless wonders.

  11. Richard Ryan says:

    I’M TIRED! I have been sending off emails all night to every newspaper in the country, to have the grub sacked.Shalom, Richard Ryan.

  12. Richard Ryan says:

    OH! Forgot to send one to the Courier Mail.

  13. Iain Hall says:

    Richard
    nothing pleases me more than the thought of you spending the entire night on a fools errand that we both know will be entirely futile.

  14. Richard Ryan says:

    Yes Iain, I know how you feel! Piers Akerman is just a common gossip columist—-just one step above a blogger who uses a screen name.

    I didn’t watch the show yesterday but if that’s all that was said I agree that Ackerman shouldn’t be sacked. It was borderline but hardly as offensive as Sattler’s confrontation. But Iain, where do you get off saying this?:

    the ABC are failing in their duty to be fair and balanced. Frankly it showed me that Barry Cassidy, should not be hosting such a program

    Huh? It was just a little spat and Cassidy is as entitled to his opinion as Ackerman was. You can’t have it both ways, Iain, by indignantly claiming that those calling for Ackerman’s head are disingenuous while, at the same time, you are calling for Cassidy’s head for merely responding.

    Storm. Tea. Cup.

  16. Iain Hall says:

    Ray my point is that as a close personal friend of Matherson Cassidy is in a conflict of interest situation when discussing this topic and as such he should have at the least removed himself from moderating that segment of the program or at the least made a caveat about his friendship with the man.

    That said the topic for discussion was the offensive rumour about Matherson being gay (not that it matters)
    and all that Piers was doing was to point out that such rumours had been around for ages and had been consistently dismissed as either wrong or irrelevant. Its the curse of “political correctness” at is most ugly when you have a topic up for discussion and then have kittens because it is being explored with a bit more depth than just shallow and contrived disapproval.
    I do agree with you though that the confected outrage from the twits et al is of no consequence and it looksd to me as if the tea cup has already been put back in the cupboard.

  17. holmesr64 says:

    Iain, when you say Cassidy is “…a close personal friend of Matherson’s (sic)…”, are you implying they are engaged in a homosexual (or indeed bisexual) relationship?
    Also, I’m not sure why you think Cassidy is biased, when Andrew Bolt regularly heaps praise on him for not being part of the Leftist elite that supposedly controls the ABC.
    Personally, I would hate to see Piers Ackerman sacked- as they say, how can you perceive light when there is no darkness?

  18. Iain Hall says:

    Holmes
    My point about Cassidy is that as a close personal friend to Tim its much harder
    for him to be an impartial moderator when his friend is the topic of discussion and In the episode in Question he was most intemperate towards Piers

  19. Richard Ryan says:

    Iain? “a close personal friend”, like your sweet-heart GD

  20. Iain Hall says:

    Is Richard Ryan Gay ?
    Is Richard Ryan a practitioner of bestiality ?

  21. Richard Ryan says:

    Iain< no prize for second!

  22. Richard Ryan says:

    Speaking of Gay, Did you hear about the Australian Gay——he has never been out of Sydney.
