I am always amazed by the inability of conservatives to even contemplate the misfortune of others unless it affects them personally. I have been so struck by this, that in my wildest imaginings, I have wondered if this is an incipient speciation event. While that is unlikely, there have been several recent examples which caused this to resurface.

I don’t usually watch the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s Q & A television show because they tend to have people on the panel who are either ignorant, but have opinions, or who are politicians, whose only concern is politicking; both are annoying, if not infuriating. As a consequence, that is why I tend not to watch it.
As I related in previous rants dealing with the ignorance of creationists, I am thoroughly sick of their idiotic questions such as: ‘if we evolved from apes how come there are still apes around’1; and ‘why haven’t all the apes evolved into humans’2.
Often you will hear idiotic climate change deniers such as Rupert Murdoch saying that carbon dioxide is ‘good for plants’. Of course, this is based on their limited school-level knowledge of plant physiology. At that level of understanding, plants ‘inhale’ carbon dioxide and ‘exhale’ oxygen.
A certain G. Dixon has said: “Scott Morrison couldn’t lead a dog on a leash. He’s a follower. He waits for someone else to do and say something, and if it looks like it might be a goer, he rides on their coat tails; then he calls press conferences to big note himself and take the credit”1. This was exemplified by his barging in to front the media when the Australian Federal Police with other organisations in Operation Ironside made a huge drug bust2.
Dennis Shanahan and Yoni Bashan must be pretend journalists as they have written some garbage entitled ‘Flood of Pfizer finally here’. This was presumably written at the behest of Morrison or Murdoch.
Did you hear Peta Credlin say: “Today should have been that day when this New South Wales government finally died of shame”; “Liberal leaders should be whacked with baseball bats for their epic incompetence and ineptitude”; and “Sydney’s lockdown is based on a lie”.
Climate change deniers have tried many, many lies to try to deny the reality of climate change. Initially it was simply denying that it was happening at all. Then, after slowly realising the data showed that the planet was actually warming, they tried to convince the gullible that the warming stopped in 1998. However, again they had to back down when they realised the data showed that assertion was equine ordure.
