Not a Great Advertisement for Millenials (Update!)

In case you haven’t already seen these hilariously cringeworthy graduate videos doing the rounds, I challenge you to make it all the way through them both.

We begin with the Department of Finance and their ‘game changers’:

Where is She Now?

These days, if you’re a white person and dress yourself up with a ‘blackface’, people are going to look at you like you just came in from Mars.

It wasn’t that long ago that artists like Michael Jackson sang that ‘it don’t matter if you’re black or white’.

I also have it good authority that people hate being lied to and made fools of, although I must admit that I do not have any peer reviewed research to back this up – you’ll just have to believe me.

Who Funded This Disgrace?

Of all the questions in the Queensland University section 18C debacle, the one that hasn’t been properly asked is who funded this lady and allowed her to cause so much carnage?

They Get How Much at the Human Rights Commission?!

By now, everyone is aware of Bill Leak’s infamous cartoon.

TMR has elected to reproduce it here as a firmly extended central digit to the left – which loves taking offense for the sake of taking offense and which specialises in encouraging people who otherwise couldn’t care less to join their crusade (seriously, I take my hat off, they’re really good at doing this).

I’m not going to provide yet another opinion on the merits of the cartoon itself. That’s for you to decide. Long may you continue having the freedom to do just that.

Bias and conflict of interest

The point of this post is to debunk the accusations of bias and conflict of interest that have been raised (I bet you weren’t expecting that) and to expose the egregious waste of public money that is the Human Rights Commission (you were probably expecting that).

Go make yourself a cup of coffee (or prepare a stiff drink) and stick around: you’ll be blown away by some of the numbers.

The Price is Left – Idiot Economics at its Finest

One has to wonder if there are any competent economic journalists left in the media.

This whiffy offering was served up in yesterday’s West Australian by its economics editor, Shane Wright:

Travelling ‘Smart’ in Germany

Here are some of the things the Australian Smartraveller site has to say about travelling to Germany:

‘Reality Exists in the Human Mind, and Nowhere Else’

Some of you will have already seen this extraordinary video doing the rounds today. It contains a series of University Of Washington students all too willing to allow (or too scared not allow) a 5’9” white man to self-identify as being 6’5”(*), a first-grader, female and/or Chinese:

Fossil Fuel Industry Referred to FBI for ‘Climate Denial’

Apparently, the ‘climate denial apparatus that the fossil fuel industry has erected’ is just as bad as what the tobacco industry did – and worthy of prosecution under the US Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (a.k.a. RICO Act).

This is an absolute farce and a shameless destruction of taxpayer money – and people wonder why Trump is gaining in popularity. At this rate, we’ll have a world climate change court up and running in no time.

Quality Education – Are you a ‘supportive ally’?

At first I thought this was a joke:

Victims ‘Provoking’ Criminals

Andrew Bolt blogs about an outrageous incident involving Jens Müller, a German town Mayor who gave some interesting practical advice to locals:

The Mayor of a small German town has caused outrage, telling concerned residence their children must stay away certain areas and “not provoke” migrants to avoid sexual harassment, as well as suggesting they need not worry because German men are a “problem” too.
