Not quite sure where their lessons in the principles of democracy ended up… Probably on the rest of the educational scrap heap, along with reading, writing and arithmetic, to make room for sustainability, Aboriginal and Asian studies. All thanks to the Left’s cultural infiltration of our schools.
If you check the various photos of the event carefully, you will see all the far left extremist rent seekers that you’d expect (Socialist Alternative, Greens etc), mixed in with a smattering of the anarchy symbol and, of course, the inevitable ‘F**k Tony Abbott’ – charming. Where are the leftist media with their outrage at that? Missing in action, of course. Compare and contrast with their treatment of the far less offensive “ditch the witch” slogan.
But here’s a clue, for those pictured and all the rest who took part in these tawdry demonstrations: there was an election in September 2013. The Coalition won it by a thumping great majority (yeah, it happened, get over it). You will have your chance to vote them out again in 2016. That’s democracy. Until then, nobody cares what you think. Got it?
PS. And just to preempt the inevitable comparisons with the protests during the Gillard government, that was a minority government held together by a couple of independents. The proper course of action should have been to let the people decide in a fresh election, rather than cling on to power without any genuine mandate, as Labor did.
