An alien or even a human being who has by no means been uncovered to life in a feminist nation dominated by the social media mob can be deeply confused by a story which lately dominated our news cycle here in Victoria.
John Setka, a bull of a man and longtime leader of a controversial and confrontational union, the CFMEU (Development, Forestry, Mining and Power Union) needed to appear in courtroom for sending a collection of “misogynistic” texts to his wife, Emma Walters.
Justice of the Peace Belinda Wallington stated:
“The misogynist language is what’s causing me concern,” she stated.
“I’m not dealing with acts of horrendous violence. But it’s still nasty behaviour.”
Now why was John Setka sending abusive texts to his spouse?
Nicely, Emma Walters had a critical consuming drawback and decided to go for a drive to another state together with her youngsters. When the police pulled her over, they discovered she had a blood alcohol studying 5 occasions above the authorized limit- .282!
There have been already tensions in the relationship and Walters, (who has now reconciled together with her husband and appeared by his aspect in courtroom), admitted that she too had written abusive texts to her husband. Nevertheless, it was John who was reported to the police by his spouse because he had the temerity to make use of forbidden phrases like c### and bitch in his tirades.
Emma merely chose to drive lots of of kilometres while intoxicated and together with her youngsters within the automotive!
However apparently it was the phrases referring to her deceased father which harm probably the most.
“Your dad would be so proud of you, you turned into a drunken moron … you weak f—-n piece of s—,” Setka had messaged her.
“Words are incredibly destructive as they stay with you,” Ms. Walters stated.
I feel Mr. Setka’s assessment of the state of affairs was harsh however accurate.
As for words being incredibly damaging, little question this is true. Nevertheless, I feel your baby’s skull smashing by means of the front windscreen of your automotive at 100kph can be even more damaging.
Like so many ladies before her, Emma is the victim. The consuming drawback was her husband’s fault.
“I was drinking too much to try and escape everything. Then I went, ‘I can’t do this any longer’, and that I’m not going insane. This is wrong and it has to stop.”
She has since admitted herself into a detox program.
Nevertheless, she was adamant, regardless of going to police in December and Setka being charged with assault and recklessly causing damage (each later withdrawn), that he had never bodily assaulted her.
So, she lied about being assaulted.
“There has been so much myth around this, that people had the perception that John was beating me up every night — this is not the case,” she stated. “Yes, there were arguments, yes, they were very heated.”
It is astonishing to know that Emma’s texts have been also abusive yet not one word from them was revealed or introduced within the media. That might have demonstrated how this was not a case of a misogynistic monster abusing his cowering spouse, however a hot-blooded give and take between two individuals who both agreed they have been underneath nice strain and in a very dark place.
Regardless of standing by her husband’s aspect outdoors the courtroom, Emma Walters couldn’t help taking over the position of the forgiving, compassionate lady, prepared to offer her husband a second probability.
To critics who can’t perceive why she has returned to Setka, she stated:
“I completely reject the characterisation of myself as the victim going back for more. I wouldn’t have gone back to this relationship if I didn’t think John could change.”
You see — it is John who needs to vary his conduct regardless that Emma went to detox and is battling an alcohol drawback and happily drove her youngsters interstate whereas drunk.
Poor Mr. Setka has been featuring in our information for an additional purpose in current weeks. Silly John had the effrontery to allegedly converse critically about Duluth DV model campaigner Rosie Batty in a personal dialog.
There were requires him to step down from his position (as chief of the union) and be ejected from the celebration after studies he informed colleagues anti-family violence campaigner Rosie Batty’s advocacy had led to males having fewer rights.
Sinner! Outcast! For disgrace. Stone the blasphemer!
Some stated his alleged feedback have been in reference to how troublesome it is for dads to get access to their youngsters after a separation. There was no trace of any denigrating or hateful language, yet the media seemed to assume just the very suggestion that anybody (but particularly a man) would dare to criticize Rosie Batty can be more than sufficient cause to see him out of a job and jeered from any public area.
John Setka denied he stated something about Batty and different witnesses have since backed him up. But the furor over his alleged feedback was one thing to behold. Many powerful individuals demanded his resignation. Even Batty was asked to touch upon his alleged transgression.
“Clearly, it’s ludicrous and I feel it’s an example of someone whose leadership position really must be challenged, as a result of it’s not a reflection that’s applicable.
I’m quite astonished with these feedback. Quite than really feel, you recognize, males have much less rights, we now have a lot more to realize by recognizing that shifting forward we’re shifting to a place of equality.”
Federal Labor leader Anthony Albanese stated on Sunday if the comments reported by The Age have been right, they have been “totally unacceptable”.
“I’m on Rosie Batty’s side. She’s a great Australian. She deserves the respect and thanks of every Australian and deserves better than to be criticised by anyone in our community,”
ACTU secretary Sally McManus stated:
‘If the feedback attributed to Setka are right, they have been, appalling and completely unacceptable!”
Many extra public figures joined within the attack in an effort to signal simply how a lot they care about Rosie and the welfare of girls.
To this present day, I don’t assume there is a individual in our country who causes me extra consternation than the untouchable Ms. Batty.
Rosie was astonished by the notion that she might have in any approach damaged men’s rights.
Was it not you, Ms. Batty who stated:
“What we want is effective programs for men to be given the opportunity to change their behaviour.”
Wasn’t it you, Ms. Batty, who was the driving pressure behind the annual candlelight vigil for feminine victims of domestic violence?
Wasn’t it you and your fellow feminists who read the names of every lady and youngster misplaced to home violence prior to now decade whilst totally ignoring the multiple hundred and twenty male victims? You also did not alert the gang to the truth that most of the lifeless youngsters have been killed by ladies. A minor oversight in the scheme of issues I’m positive.
Wasn’t it you who stated:
“It is important for the men in our society to own the issue, that this is a gender problem, this is a man’s desire to treat those he loves or cares for as possessions.”
Wasn’t it you who stated, when asked about violent ladies,
‘The degree of terror a man exerts over his family is profoundly different. A woman is violent but I don’t know what number of men can be dwelling in complete worry of their life.
Tell that to the dozens of young youngsters slaughtered by their mums in our nation. Inform that to the households of the lads who have died or suffered ongoing emotional and bodily abuse by the hands of a psychotic female associate.
Please watch the brief clip linked. Take heed to her rationalization for her blinkered concentrate on only one group of the victims of family violence. Her justification is illogical and outrageous, but no-one referred to as her out.
This is the lady feted and fawned over by the Australian media and many individuals round our country. We set a low bar for movie star sainthood in this nation.
So, one journalist did dare to ask her about other victims and perpetrators albeit in a fairly timid style. Why he didn’t ask her concerning the eight youngsters hacked to dying and whether or not the blade felt much less painful as it tore the youngsters’s flesh resulting from the truth that a lady was wielding the knife.
This lady spoke these words with the very clear understanding that during her term as Australian of the Yr the worst mass homicide of youngsters in Australia’s historical past was dedicated by a lady.
Many more youngsters have been murdered by their moms in recent times as Batty continues to speak at public gatherings concerning the gendered nature of home violence. Just this previous month another mother murdered her 4 youngsters by intentionally driving her automotive into the path of an oncoming truck.
Did this mother not view her youngsters as her possessions? This mother killed a man’s 4 beloved youngsters as an act of spite and not one home violence advocate has uttered a phrase about it, least of all of the bigoted Rosie Batty.
Batty’s advocacy has certainly harmed men and boys. Unquestionably.
She has deliberately and very publicly insisted that household violence is a drawback prompted solely by males. This lady with probably the most powerful voice in the nation on this challenge has succeeded in having governments give lots of of hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding to female victims of household violence and naturally to the big business which grows fat on the teat of this alleged epidemic.
She has made it virtually unimaginable for any man to talk up about his abuse, for in Batty’s world such an prevalence is as rare as a unicorn sighting. She has additionally condemned many youngsters to enduring ongoing abuse by the hands of their moms. Any dad who wished to report such abuse of his youngsters or himself would instantly be positioned underneath suspicion and thought of to be an abuser beneath tips developed by the New South Wales authorities.
Bettina Arndt explains:
“In June 2016, the NSW government announced a pilot program for male victims of domestic violence. Finally, a government was acknowledging that men are also victims of domestic violence.”
Males have been promised 13 million dollars over 4 years. Chickenfeed in comparison with the tons of of hundreds of thousands given to feminine victims by the Turnbull government, however a start.
“What a blow to find in November that yr that the NSW authorities had awarded the contract for this very important program to Men’s Referral Service, a corporation pushed by feminist ideology and long recognized for shunning male victims. Up to now, MRS was on the document for refusing to acknowledge the existence of male victims. The group’s place then shifted to arguing male victims don’t expertise abuse in the identical method as ladies and therefore don’t deserve help.
MRS has only ever labored with male perpetrators and is infamous for “red-flagging” men who declare to be victims.
So, the fox was put in control of the henhouse. Male victims who are notoriously reluctant to seek help, are to be put via a doubtful screening process run by a corporation with a long historical past of decrying their very existence.
Think about the outcry if home violence providers for ladies assumed most alleged victims have been in reality perpetrators. The entire home violence motion is based mostly on the premise that we “believe women”, yet our first authorities funded program for males operates on the idea that we shouldn’t consider men.” ( #Mentoo, Betttina Arndt)
So back to Batty. This very night time there was a story on a current affair program concerning the surprising price of suicide of our servicemen and ladies. I have no drawback with that. I care about every individual driven to suicide by traumas they have skilled or witnessed. The ratio of male victims to female is actually around ten to at least one. No-one batted an eyelid when the two genders got equal concern. This is appropriately and is the case in each problematic concern affecting our nation bar one.
This all-encompassing empathy evaporates once we speak about household violence.
Batty drove the concept only one sort of sufferer issues with relentless fervor in her time as Australian of the Yr although all reputable studies show one third of victims are male. Disgrace on her. She has severely broken males’s rights and deserves to be condemned for doing it.
At what stage would some brave journalist increase the query: Why would someone we name “inspiring and compassionate” show such a lack of compassion and empathy for one specific group of victims?
It is astonishing to assume that Batty might expertise the horror of dropping her son and never feel deep empathy for every individual unfortunate enough to have skilled the same devastation. It defies my understanding.
Ignorance is no excuse, for all journalists are absolutely conscious of the various youngster murders committed by mums in our nation to not point out the lads who die by the hands of a feminine associate.
I wish John Setka had indeed spoken disparagingly about Batty’s lack of compassion for males. It is nothing greater than the reality. I wish too, that he had stated,
“Sure I said it and this is why.”
For too long, Rosie Batty has been considered a flawless, virtually celestial being, untainted by human corruption and completely past criticism.
What a pathetic farce.
Someone must shatter this delusion.
