Trump is permanently a villain, but this week the Coward-in-Chief sank to new lows. Small hands, who wussed out on military service 5 TIMES during Vietnam, has decided that the brave and courageous transgender soldiers are not good enough for his military. What a fucking piece of shit.
Okay, so they're not all bad. We've all seen the movies and TV shows where there's a couple of honest cops who believe in the system.
However, a lot of cops tend to murder innocent people. Some cops in Baltimore put a suspect in the back of a van and drove a very convoluted way to the police station at high speeds. The guy died, and of course the cops were found not guilty.
There's lots more.
When Australian woman Justine Damond was killed by a Minneapolis cop people suddenly seemed more shocked. White woman I suppose. Can't murder them.
It seems fitting for a change to have an actual villain be Villain Of The Week as opposed to some dill who made a stupid comment.
Kim Jong-un, the Chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea and Supreme Leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, along with his military, supposedly successfully launched an Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile.
Basically, North Korea can send a missile that can reach mainland USA, even Australia. (Better get the ol' Brisbane Line out again.)
If they can miniaturise their nukes and chuck them in one of these ICBMs then, well, it's not good. Hard to make a joke out of global nuclear war.
House prices in Darwin may soon- nah...
The third most powerful Catholic on the planet, Australian Cardinal George Pell, has been charged with historical sexual assault offences by Victoria Police.
He is the most senior Catholic to face criminal charges.
There's a lot that can be said about Cardinal Pell. The most revealing words are spoken by the man himself. When facing questioning about the horrific instances of child rape happening in Ballarat when he worked in the area, Pell told the Royal Commission, “It was a sad story and of not much interest to me.”
Read this article by David Marr if you want to understand this man's mind.
I'm not going to name the flog who murdered an innocent worker and took a woman hostage at an apartment block in Brighton earlier this week. Giving these pricks publicity is exactly what they want. It's what Man Haron Monis wanted when he kidnapped people in the Lindt cafe in Sydney.
This Brighton prick was a low-life anyway. He spent time in jail for violent assaults and was an ice user. Before he fired at police he claimed his violence was in support of ISIS and al-Qaeda (they're actually enemies).
This piece of shit was pathetic and we need to make sure others aren't "inspired" by his cowardly violence, but if they are, then they ought to be locked away for a very long time.
One of Australia's best sportswomen, one of Australia's shittest persons, Margaret Court has been a happy-clapper born-again Christian who believes the Bible to be literally true in every sense for many decades now. So of course she doesn't like gay people. What they do is nothing more than a "lust of the flesh" and that there is a gay minority who are "after our young ones."
(It's pretty ironic for a Fundamentalist Christian to be lecturing on the issue of taking away young people.)
Anyway, Court is like that wacky Nanna at a family BBQ who says some weird shit, usually racist (like when Court said South Africa's apartheid was good) and everyone rolls their eyes. She's been saying this stuff for years, but now that most people view LGBTIQ people as actual human beings they tend to get pissed off when someone says gay people are the devil.
Oh, tennis is also "full of lesbians" and we can't have that.
Seriously, Christians way too often forget about the dude after which their religion is named.
We all know who the villain of the week is, so I didn't want to publicise his evil. Instead The Seagull salutes The Mancunians who have chose love and solidarity over hatred and division.
Tim Who? You ask. He's the douchebag who thinks millenials are wasting too much money on smashed avocado and coffee, and that's why they can't afford a house deposit.
Nevermind the fact that Mr Douchebag was handed $34,000 by his grandfather which he subsequently used to buy a gym and start his property development career. The rest is history, as they say.
(Oh, also, when people started slamming Mr Douchebag for his idiotic views he doubled down (and lost) by revealing that his employer stumped up the money for his first investment property! About $180,000 of stumping. Winning.)
Look, unless you've been on a technology detox for six years then you're aware of the whole smashed avo versus house prices debate. You'd know wages haven't kept pace with house prices blah blah blah.
Point is, if you're gonna argue that young people aren't working hard enough to save a deposit you have to realise how much of a dick you'll look like if you've gotten a MIGHTY leg up in the first place.
Tony Overheu is the douchebag who shoved a pie in the face of Qantas CEO Alan Joyce because Alan Joyce has the temerity to support marriage equality.
Remember, it's the folks who want to prohibit marriage equality - and equality in general - who think the proponents of marriage equality are nasty and intolerant of dissenting opinions. Hmm.
Tony Overheu: sensitive little snowflake.
Greg Hywood, at the time of writing, is the CEO of Fairfax Media. How long he continues to maintain that position is unclear.
In March 2017, Hywood and the board of Fairfax decided he could have a $2.5m bonus. In April 2017 Hywood announced the axing of 125 positions at two of Australia's best newspapers, The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald, to ostensibly save $30m.
Hywood's bonus is equivalent to 16 full-time positions at Fairfax. There is a reason those memes about Late Capitalism keep popping up.
