A Green View of Democracy

Australia is such a wonderful place, amongst its pristine beaches and warm weather it espouses a Greek concept called Democracy. A system whereby we are all equal, no one is above the law and that we all must have equal access to the legislative process. Every three years Australians go to the polls to vote in a federal government. This notion is envied in many countries which don’t hold democracy as part of their values.

Sadly, there are some people who want to take advantage of the principles of democracy. On Wednesday 30th November 2016 protestors stormed Parliament House, glued their hands to railings and disrupted a democratic process called Question Time.
The Greens praised these ill-informed nitwits, congratulating them and saying that they are proud of their actions. Those with any form of decency have condemned the actions of these Marxists, but I note many on the left have stated that this is their democratic right to protest. As mentioned, Australia does have a proud history of the concept of Democracy, however there is a huge difference between protesting peacefully outside, and protesting in a house whereby it has rules and regulations to uphold the very same principle we espouse; DEMOCRACY.

What we have seen today is a Green View of Democracy. A viewpoint whereby we must shut down debate that is in opposition to the left-wing agenda. Those nitwit Marxists who protested today were not exercising their democratic right to protest, what they were doing was shutting down freedom of speech.
The right are not innocent either, I was the first to complain when the right stormed Gosford Anglican Church dressed as Islamists and disrupted the service provided by Father Rod, the difference between that incident and the one today at Parliament House, was that all those on the right, including Pauline Hanson, condemned the actions of those involved.

Richard Di Natale, as the Greens Party leader you must show leadership and condemn these actions and inform these protestors to go elsewhere to protest rather than holding our democratic process to ransom. Adam Bandt needs to apologies for his ungodly tweet praising the protestors and the rest of the Greens need to be educated on the concept of DEMOCRACY.

Greens logic 101 – Do what we say not what we do!

Christine Milne has resigned from the Leadership of the Australian Greens, and it appears she won’t be standing again for the 2016 Senate Elections. Whilst I’d like to say good riddance, the issue with the Greens go beyond leader’s, as Chris Kenny (http://www.theaustralian.com.au/opinion/columnists/greens-leadership-christine-milne-was-a-snarling-negative-leader/story-fn8qlm5e-1227338470767) pointed out, its their policies and their hypocritical views which are on the nose.

The Greens new leader is Richard Di Natale, a well spoken individual and a GP, his co-deputies are Scott Ludlam (WA Greens Senator) and Larissa Waters (QLD Greens Senator). When you break down this leadership team, 67% are male. Those males are not gay. The only woman is not a lesbian. According to the lefts own admission, one could argue that The Greens are nothing but a sexist, misogynist, homophobic Party.

Where is the diversity in their leadership? The Greens were quick to attack the Liberal Party for lack of diversity – do they work on the premise “do what we say and not what we do?” For a party that champions diversity they aren’t doing too well at the moment.
