This week the debate should have been about national security, border protection, failed green energy policy and Labor’s dud spending programs and extra taxes.
Liberal Party ministers should have been lining up to put a serious dent in the election chances of Bill Shorten and the Labor Party.
Instead, the Liberals have spent all week talking about homosexual marriage – a proposition that can best be described as the political love-child of Sarah Hanson Young and Bob Brown.
As a result, it is not Bill Shorten under political pressure but Malcolm Turnbull. And it’s all happened because the gay mafia within the Liberal Party have no respect for their leader, the party membership or the Australian people.
It really is madness. Turnbull may well lose his job because Trevor Evans, Dean Smith, Trent Zimmerman and Tim Wilson want to die in a ditch for a policy invented by the Greens.
I really have no time for Turnbull. In many ways he has brought this upon himself. But the extent of his failures have become so embarrassing that one can’t help but hope he improves. After all, this entire farce has gone from a popcorn-munching political drama to a cringe-worthy circus that is now painful to watch.
There’s also the fact that the very real possibility is the fallout of this process could not only foist gay marriage (unasked) on Australians but a Labor government as well (unelected).
So it’s time for conservatives within the Liberals to take serious stock of their position.
There are four gay Liberals in the federal parliament, out of a total of 64 male Liberals. Statistically, there should be just one. And no one can have any certainty that there aren’t other Liberal politicians on the rainbow train as well. In fact, if the rumours are to be believed then there are several more as well.
It could well be the case that more than 10% of federal male Liberal politicians are homosexual.
That would explain why this party was responsible for funding ‘Safe Schools’ in the first place. And it would also explain why ‘progressives’ have been told that gay marriage may happen much sooner than they had hoped.
But even if it is just four, it’s clear that the gay mafia within the party are calling the shots. The conservatives are just making up the numbers.
Consequently, serious conservatives need to work out what they hope to achieve in the Liberal Party. If they can’t do much more than they already have, then the only reason they exist is to vacuum up conservative votes for the progressive cause.
That’s hardly inspiring or helpful.
And while the politicians ponder these things, I have no doubt that exasperated, frustrated and highly irritated conservative Australians have already made up their minds to join Cory Bernardi and the Australian Conservatives.
