Book Review: Complaint! by Sara Ahmed

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 28/05/2022 - 7:00pm in

In Complaint!, Sara Ahmed follows the institutional life of complaints within the university, exploring how they begin, how they are processed and how they are ultimately stopped, thereby reproducing systems of whiteness, violence and silencing. Proposing complaint as a feminist pedagogy and a form of collective and social action, Ahmed’s work should provoke change to a resistant institution … Continued

For the last few years, a strange phenomenon has pervaded political discussion in Australia, mainly led by middle-aged, often religious, white men. The term “woke” became the conservative pejorative of choice. Action on climate change was “woke”.  Protection of the rights of the rainbow community was “woke”.  Indigenous recognition was “woke”. Addressing inequality, corruption, women’s…

For two decades, the GOP’s network of corporate and right-wing operatives has painstakingly fabricated the Supreme Court as its own political weapon. In short order, backed by a few billionaires, these anti-democracy zealots have incrementally been imposing on America an extremist political agenda that they could not win at the ballot box. Join Hightower as he sits down with right-wing dark money expert Lisa Graves to learn how this happened– and what we’ll do about it.

Elections always bring about diverse reactions. One side is typically overjoyed at victory, while the other is disappointed in defeat. In a two-sided contest, such disparate reactions are the order of the day. In a healthy system, transitions of power are peaceful. Looking at recent history, however, this trend is fading. Consider 2016 and the…

Voldemort demands Tanya Plibersek apologise for ‘hurtful’ comparisons to Peter Dutton

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 26/05/2022 - 10:07am in

Lawyers for the Dark Lord, Lord Voldemort have demanded an ‘immediate and full’ apology from Tanya Plibersek after the Labor MP compared their client to former Defence Minister Peter Dutton.

Plibersek made the comments during a radio interview yesterday, noting the similarities between the terrifying villain and the Harry Potter character. Voldemort’s lawyers say the comparison was hurtful and unnecessarily cruel.

“How would you feel if you were compared to a man who has locked away small children, jokes about a country being devastated by climate change and who boycotted the apology to the Stolen Generation? Our client is not just going to sit back and take this”.

The ruthless practitioner of the dark arts was unavailable for comment. So was Lord Voldemort.

Albanese orders removal of emergency hi-vis, ukulele, curry kit from Lodge

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 26/05/2022 - 9:32am in

Saying he wanted to start with a clean slate, new PM Anthony Albanese has asked for dozens of emergency cabinets containing hi-vis clothing, ukuleles and DIY curry kits to be removed from the walls of the Lodge.  

Workers at the building were surprised to open a curry kit to find a piece of paper with the phone number of a personal chef and film crew. “When we shook one of the ukuleles upside-down two First Class tickets to Hawaii hidden fell out,” one worker said.

Albanese said he also noticed that one of the hi-vis vests had a number of self affirmations written on the lapels, including “You’re a big, strong bulldozer” and “You didn’t shit your pants at McDonald’s Engadine in front of a dozen teenagers at 7:22pm on the 20th of September 1997 after the Cronulla Shark lost the Super League Grand Final to the Brisbane Broncos 26-8 and had to call Jenny to bring you a new set of pants and underwear and shirt because the shirt you were wearing was tucked all the way in and got a little poo on it too while standing on a cubicle toilet so no one knew you were in there”.

Albo plans to have the cases restocked with his own emergency items, including an electric bill from 1968 addressed to his mum at the Alexander Dwellings in Camperdown, and a Wikipedia printout of Australian Unemployment Rates: 1980-2022.
