Vote with your fists

I, for one, could not be arsed to view the March for Democracy. In case you were wondering democracy is the right to beat your kids with a hose or any other implement of your choosing. Yes, I know: the Greeks, the Encyclop├ędistes and the Founding Fathers somehow missed that nuance. However, thinkers such as Yulia are more aware of the implications of this issue:
As a young girl I grew with the concrete dust of poverty and the ruin of Volgograd as my playground. Now that I am a NZ citizen who is representing NZ with my artistry, I want to lend my love and support to my fellow kiwis as we encourage the NZ government to value the vote of its people.

By Marching for Democracy, I believe we honor the families who sacrificed their loved ones for our freedoms. Let us not take these freedoms for granted. Let us not forget the horrific price of totalitarianism. By marching for democracy we demonstrate that despite being from many cultures and backgrounds, we are one people under democracy.
Incidentally, Julia's father maintained order in his household with an axe.

Oh well, at least it was a family event. Loving parents could bring along their little victims and get them to carry placards. And then they could all go home for a good thrashing. Because that is what freedom is all about. And it only cost the organiser $100 a head.

Actually, the march is about getting govts to look at the real culprits of chiild abuse, and leaving the good parents alone. It's also about deaf govts in a so-called democracy. The Left is so dishonest re this issue, and keeps mixing up loving parents with child bashers. Did you see the front page of the Herald today re crime, how come you don't mention that?

If any group is "mixing up loving parents with child bashers", it's not "The Left"; despite the lies and misinformation surrounding the issue, loving parents are not being prosecuted under this law. Unless you consider a punch in the face to be "good parental correction" by a "loving parent". Most people I know wouldn't.

Weird shit. I came from The Briefing Room, where a commenter thinks climate scientists want "...to force a socialist revolution in the name of climate upon us...", to this blog, where the blogger himself says parents who smack their kids think "...democracy is the right to beat your kids with a hose or any other implement of your choosing." As straw men go, these have to be the most pathetic examples of them I've come across in years. Am I missing some subtle indicators of satire in them?

Yes, I think you are.

Nothing subtle about satire when you can use a length of pipe to make your point

Psycho Milt said...

Yes, I think you are.

Thank Christ for that. The idea that these "one world govt through climate change alarmism" clowns are just hilariously satirising climate change scientists is way preferable to the suspicion that they actually mean it...
