Worse than a Damien Hirst statue of a pregnant teen

As some sort of relief from the horrors of London Bridge and tonight’s kumbaya in Manchester, I went back to standard sources Bored Panda and Amusing Planet, only to be met, at the former, with article after article of kumbaya – from rain forests to a 96 year old bride – as if that’s a good thing – to all the rest of it.

It was horrible. And so to Amusing Planet and this about a face in a building:

At first I thought it was Karl Marx but then read that it was some aboriginal leader. he may well have been a respected aborigine, I don’t know, but why is his face a permanent eyesore in an elevated and inescapable place in the centre of the city?

It is a highly politicized thing to do and is like having a giant phallus or a 65 foot Damien Hirst statue of a pregnant teenager – only much larger than either of those, towering over the city and visible from most angles.

This stinks. Did anyone ask the people about it? No, some leftists decided that some permanent kumbaya was needed, blighting the Melbourne landscape in perpetuity or until that building comes down. It serves the same purpose as megamosques in key positions here – radical political statements in infrastructure, the left’s summum bonum.

I rate that in the same category as the Muslimn desecration of the Hagia Sophia. What’s wrong with it? I’ll tell you what’s bleedin’ wrong – it represents a well-opposed piece of political BS, a la Adam Goodes, where a significant percentage of the population not only don’t buy it, they strongly oppose it and the PTB plus the entire deluded left insist you vill haf it, no matter what.

As Rumpy Pumpy said at EU HQ; ‘Vee do it anyway.’

Eff off. The issue now is how to bring it down. We haven’t won this battle against the left by any means – this face in the building is not quite as bad as a London Bridge or Manchester killing but it stems from the same thinking.

    The Silence of Blair. This is his Heritage, he gave the Islamic world Operation Shock and Awe, remember with his pal Bush. The Islamic world is now giving us Shock and Horror, why is Blair still free? this horror story is going to run and run

    Personally speaking, I’d be pretty fucking angry if having made something of the crap land I had been given, it was then stolen off of me, not figuratively but *literally*. Australians need to be reminded of him on a daily basis, when they pull the curtains in the morning.

      With all due respect – BS. No one stole anything. Tribes were doing this to each other long before the white man came.

      It’s a giant national wank on behalf of the snowflakes while the aborigines are making a financial killing out of it, just like the Inuit and American Indians.

      Yes things happened centuries ago – we are guilty only of what we do today.

      And that’s not the issue. The issue is that this is foisted onto people whether they want it or not. Sorry, I’m for a classical liberal society.

        “…Tribes were doing this to each other long before the white man came.”

        What’s that got to do with anything here? They petitioned the state government for the land, were duly granted it on the assumption it was next to worthless, and then had it taken off them by force when the local farmers decided that they did like the look of it after all. It resembles the plot of Bad Day at Black Rock and it is little wonder a lot of people are keen to stare at their feet and whistle innocently as it is quietly forgotten. If it is not theft what would you define it as? Eminent domain?

        From what I can tell they make enough money out of the ethnic racket to keep themselves in cinderblock shacks and alcohol, and that’s about it. They can’t have reservation casinos like in the US because gambling is legal just about everywhere. They also cannot claim “territory” like in the US because they freely admit that the ancient lifestyle was heavily nomadic. They also can’t whine that “It’s our oil” either, because there isn’t any.

        “The issue is that this is foisted onto people whether they want it or not.”

        I’m sorry but nobody is forcing you, me or anyone else to live in Melbourne, which aside from the Melbourne Opera House and Ramsay Street is the architectural equivalent of a lay monastery. Besides, the speculative crap that is routinely slung up in London is a disgrace.

        Bad architecture is the only art form left that you simply have to put up with if you wish to live in a particular place, everything else in culture is effectively optional. It’s much the same way as the Mayor telling you without any shame that you have to put up with being shot, run over or stabbed if you fancy life in London. As offensive as that sounds, absent a decision upon what changes to make and a person to decide them, it is regrettably true.

        “It’s a giant national wank on behalf of the snowflakes.”

        It could be worse. Imagine if you pulled your curtains back of a morning and had Germaine Greer staring at you?

        In the case of the Inuit and American Indians, those things were decades ago. Try visiting a reservation, as I have, and see the people being cheated by the oil companies out of what little they are supposed to get. The Inuit are not living large either.

          All well and fine – the issue is that this being foisted onto people wherher they want it or not. Not very libertarian, quite authoritarian in fact.
