ANDREW BOLT|Old Dog Thoughts |
News Corporation employs Andrew Bolt and provides him with a platform ensuring the inequality of speech. Bolt's Blog not only advocates conservative, right wing and Tea Party views it moderates out most opposing opinions which he is entitled to do. However Andrew Bolt simply lies when he says he provides an arena for fair and balanced discussion in a no spin zone. He doesn't it's all spin.

Fighting Fake News with REAL 22/5/20. Sorry Skyhooks Ego is a Dirty Word; Covid not averted by Morrison but he'll take the credit and won't even give it to God;
While the media has been
heaping praise on Scott Morrison's leadership of late, it's important to
remember who the real heroes are.
But don’t worry people, we will hear more about how wonderful PM
Scott Morrison is, how he has “saved Australia” and it will be back to
business as usual soon, rewarding the wealthy, handing out contracts to
all the financial spivs and letting the vulnerable languish in poverty. But hey, how good is Scott Morrison?
Over 30 years ago Andrew Bolt's workmates at the Herald Sun described him as an un-Australian social-climbing pretentious twat. Today Andrew Bolt says he sounds like one when he's always been just that a self-absorbed aloof pretentious twat who was raised by a mother who hated the place. Imagine a lover of Shakespeare saying the bard was great here's a LOOSELY translated version of an ode to prove the point. Or Portia's lines loosely repeated on Mercy. Is it any wonder the man never got a degree? He already believed he had one and for years went about telling everyone he was educated at Adelaide Uni when he wasn't. Rowan Dean' was spot on as were his colleagues over 30 years ago. They were wiser and just ignored the social-climbing prick.
TWO CHINESE POEMS. IN MY DEFENCE
Rowan Dean mocked me for saying last night that I liked
Tang Dynasty poetry. True, I sounded like as pretentious as all get out.
In my defence, here's one example from Du Fu, brilliantly (although
perhaps loosely) translated or transformed by Vikram Seth.
THE SHOTS CHINA FIRED OVER ME TOLD ME A LOT ABOUT ITS BULLYING
Sure, they only fired shots over my head, not in it. But nothing since about China’s bullying has surprised me. You know that thing about first impressions? Mine was formed in 1998, when Chinese soldiers told me to stop my boat.
50 years prior to Andrew Bolt's failed single-handed attempt to invade China and being made to fuck off like the scared pissant bunny he really was then and still is. Bolt bullshits us today with the "I'm just awfully shy" crap and his excuse why he's too afraid to walk our streets with us. Yet he "knows" us like he "knows" the Chinese nothings changed has it? Andrew Bolt is humming LOOSELY the 1970s Sky Hooks song
If I did not have an ego I would not be here tonight If I did not have an ego I might not think that I was right If you did not have an ego you might not care the way you dressed If you did not have an ego you'd just be like the rest
If Jesus had an ego he'd still be alive today
And if Nixon had no ego he might not be in decay
If you did not have an ego you might not care too much who won
If I did not have an ego I might just use a gun
Ego is not a dirty word
Ego is not a dirty word
Ego is not a dirty word
Unfortunately, Bolt's ego is large but his knowledge of China minute reduced to that single moment when he was Gulliver and the Chinese were Lilliputians and he fucked off. The greatest miracle if there is such a thing wasn't the work of a single man it was the Chinese revolution that took China from the darkness of a starving nation ruled by a royal dynasty and transformed it into a nation of people living with the basic necessities of life Food, Health Housing Education and increasing freedoms and choices.
We, on the other hand, see our freedoms shrinking and more of us living with less of these necessities. With Bolt arguing increasingly that education isn't learning about diversity but single-minded training. Had Bolt been on a boat trying to land in Australia 20 years later in 2018 he might have found himself on Manus island rather than just been given a warning to piss-off.
WHAT CHINA COULD BE
Can you imagine what a gift China would be to the world if
it was part of the West and not an authoritarian thuggery at virtual war
with it? To me, this Chinese-composed music symbolises all we have to
gain from a meeting of the two civilisations.
Yes, what a pretentious twat Andrew Bolt is a royalist who still dreams of the kingdoms and Dynasties of the past. Could you imagine what Indonesia could have been if the Dutch stayed in Indonesia or the British in India or the Qing Dynasty remained in control of China and the Nationalists hadn't overthrown it in 1912? People would still be starving in the streets but free to listen to the music and poems LOOSELY translated by Andrew Bolt who simply wouldn't notice the tight grip held on the throats of starving people around him. He doesn't notice anything here other than his own Private little Idaho
Bolt has no real interest in people other than himself and the free whiskey he shares with a mate on Thursdays behind the televisions protective screen.
