What do you do when confronted by a pack of snarling dogs? Stand your ground, look for stones, sticks, or any other weapons, and be prepared to fight them off. Above all, don’t show fear and don’t back off – that signals weakness and vulnerability and emboldens the mongrels. Once they feel they have the advantage they will attack and try to rip you to shreds.
George Pell must know this now, as do many others who have been targeted by the left and its allies, the victim groups, social justice warriors, PC police, moral crusaders, Twitter Trolls, the ABC and Fairfax soviets, and the rest of the rabid pack.
Pell was attacked in the most outrageous fashion on the Channel 10 leftist propaganda vehicle, The Project, on Tuesday night when a so-called “comedy singer/songwriter”, Tim Minchin, was given several minutes of prime viewing time to berate, slander, and obscenely abuse Pell over his inability to travel from Rome to give further evidence to the Royal Commission into child sexual abuse.
Unlike Steve Price, who was on the panel and condemned the performance, the rest of the gang applauded Minchin’s vicious attack on Australia’s most senior Catholic cleric, a man who, 20 years ago, initiated comprehensive measures to counter predatory behaviour amongst a small minority of evil priests, and has been cooperative and conciliatory ever since.
It was especially notable that an enthusiastic defender of Minchin was the The Project’s high profile Muslim advocate, Waleed Aly, prompting online comments asking whether he would have the same attitude if the song attacked Muslim clerics or others guilty of the rape of children and the genital mutilation of young girls.
The answer is, we can guess, of course not! Muslims now have government ministers such as the egregious Craig Laundy, and entire government departments, dedicated to defending them and denouncing critics. And The Project panellists know only too well what would happen to their careers if they offended the multicult militia, the PC police, the Twitter trolls, or the hacks professing to be journalists at the ABC and Fairfax.
The Catholic Church is a different matter, it is weakened and vulnerable and is being targeted by the left generally as part of its campaign against all the traditional institutions that hold our society together. Moreover, the persecution and murder of critics of Islam has become commonplace throughout the world and neither Aly or co-panellists Peter Hellier and Carrie Bickmore want to be targeted for shooting, stabbing, and beheading by the Muslim fanatics easily mobilized to carry out such murders. This goes double for Minchin, who would never risk performing a similar song in prime time attacking a high profile Muslim cleric or any of the atrocities committed in the name of Islam.
Attacking a weakened target is a different matter. Beating an old, sick man when he’s down is much easier, especially when you’ve got the mob behind you. That’s when Minchin, a pantywaist, can posture as the big, tough man of his dreams.
Pell made a serious mistake in trying to accommodate his attackers and there is a lesson there for everyone who dares to oppose the fascist left in this country. The cardinal and his advisors have been proactive, sensitive, and conciliatory with those people (and their lawyers) who claime they had been sexually abused by priests.
It is now clear that this was a major strategic error. The Minchinesque scum have capitalized on Pell’s submissive posture and made him the target of one of the most brutal character assassinations in Australian history. He is to be murderously vilified to further the interests of those who have come forward claiming victimhood and demanding massive compensation payments, possibly totalling billions of dollars.
The lesson is clear for those confronted by the fascist left: a submissive defence, no matter how well intentioned, is not an option. Right from the outset, never give an inch, never take a backward step, because they will only attack you if you do — destroy you if they can, brutally, wilfully and pitilessly — and then dance on your remains to the piano accompaniment of the likes of Minchin.
