 Morrison supports Gladys Liu—and his reasons?

13.09.19.  Anyone who can still stomach the carry-on in Parliamentary Question Time had a grand spectacle yesterday equal to a barnyard of feral pigs trying to chew each others tales off in a feeding frenzy.
MP Gladys Liu was brought to tears and that idiot for a Deputy PM McCormack screaming across the despatch box in a state of apoplectic, unhinged rage—straight jacket stuff!  During the several minute rage, just an arm’s length away was the PM pretending that nothing was awry. He didn’t even look up. But it was Morrison that took the day for deceptive spin. In his defence of Gladys Liu Morrison shamed himself by playing the race card to halt Labor’s attack. It might have been McCormack’s burst of insanity that sent ScoMo off the track? A failed leader under fire, all the same!
Embattled Liberal MP Gladys Liu has been moved to tears by Scott Morrison’s defence of her, as the Prime Minister accused Labor of smearing all Chinese-Australians with its attacks. Ms Liu shed a tear and was passed tissues by other Coalition colleagues as the government stared down attempts to dislodge her over her links to Chinese Communist Party-linked groups.

Question time brings Gladys Liu to tears
After Labor’s legal affairs spokesman Mark Dreyfus asked Mr Morrison if he had received government agency briefings on Ms Liu and her links to China, Mr Morrison said the Labor frontbencher knew he could not answer any questions about ASIO matters and the question was an attempt to air a smear about Ms Liu.
The Prime Minister then doubled down on his latest attack on the Opposition, linking their assault on Ms Liu to Labor’s recent woes with the Chinese community, including ex-NSW Labor leader Michael Daley accusing Asian students of taking Sydneysiders’ jobs.”
“What this member is doing here in seeking a smear a member and I refer to the member for Chisholm, the member for Chisholm who has probably done more than anyone else in this place … to overcome discrimination, to overcome domestic violence, to overcome disability,” Mr Morrison said.
“Now the member for Isaacs should take a good hard look at himself and he should have a good hard look at the 1.2 million Australians who will see exactly what he is doing to Australians of Chinese descent.
“Just because someone was born in China doesn’t make them disloyal. What the Member for Isaacs is doing a casting a smear on Chinese Australians.”

    Despite all the so called Great Attributes of the member for Chisolm being extolled by MalMo the member has not complied with the law of my country and declared all of the political $ donations she has received.
    No wonder no one has regard for the law

      In Australian politics today compliance with rules, regulations and the law are optional.

      It’s a long tradition, consider AWU slush fund and Section 44 – dual citizenship, and more.

    Morrison is rightly under pressure re Gladys, and just like all the other irrational dopes pulls out the trifecta of supposed get out of jail free cards, discrimination (race card), domestic violence and disability.
    Legitimate criticism of anyone is fast becoming off limits in this country because there are many more categories of cards used to just shut people up and let the baddies go on their merry way. This path is extremely dangerous.

      It’s a leftie approach, I think, HB. It’s a “comply or be cowed into silence” thing. Pretty much the Standard Operating Procedure for all lefty govts, more or less from Lenin onwards. But the principle has become so widespread that it’s now used by all govts.

    Meanwhile, Australia burns, drought and water shortages everywhere, sky rocketing power prices and all we hear is crap like this. Morrison is out of his depth while Turnbull pulls his strings, we have another bad PM. The man for the job is in parliament and his name is Dutton. Is it too much to ask for leadership instead of the soap opera in Canberra, we are such a dumb country and all Morrison can do is play the race card, how Labor of him.

    • Honeybadger 13/09/2019, 10:10 am

      How Labor of him, a good way of putting it. Dutton appeals to informed voters but doesn’t have enough blokey, hail fellow well met, tv appeal about him. Morrison with his cheery demeanour does go down well on tv. My only solace is that things would have been a hundred times worse under Shorten.

    Andrew Bolt was right last night when he accused Morrison of playing the race card. Morrison’s juvenile tantrum which included calling anyone who questioned Liu’s questionable conduct and shady dealings with the communist Chinese organisations a racist was an insult to everybody and a gross embarrassment to this country.

    I am beginning to wonder after all the corruption being uncovered in both state & federal politicians if there is actually a politician who actually cares anything for the country rather than themselves?

    • Neville 13/09/2019, 10:01 am

      LOL. Really?? Only “beginning to wonder …” ??

      • Pepperpete 13/09/2019, 10:35 am

        It’s the cost of electricity. The lights have been out for some time apparently.

      • Fedup 13/09/2019, 11:29 am

        Gimme a break people, name one, Pauline or Latham maybe?

  • seadogger 13/09/2019, 9:51 am

    You would never have guessed this… The vessel trapped in the Artic which had all the Climate Change D…kheads on it is called the MALMO.
    Great parallel with our MalMo

  • Pepperpete 13/09/2019, 10:45 am

    Given all the Chinese Communist interference in our politics we are now learning about, the Aldi bag of cash and payment for favours, there is only one thing ScoMo can do without looking like a complete hypocrite. Get rid of her.

  • Thunder 13/09/2019, 11:44 am

    ScoMo are you happy you have a Chinese Communist Party Member as part of your Regime ??

    Peking must still be Celebrating their Coup………

    Of Course there are several ALP/Greens to be EXPOSED as Communist Party Agents still !!

  • Cliff 13/09/2019, 6:34 pm

    I really wish Scott Morrison would stop trying to appear to be “a good bloke” and instead, start behaving like a Prime Minister. Getting the actual building of a a dam started, rather than just talking about it, would be a good start.

    • DT 14/09/2019, 11:19 am

      Dams, power stations, renewable energy, so called, wind and solar farms, new transmission lines, all state and local government approvals.
