The feminist Trojan horse in Family Law

Filed under: Domestic Violence,Law & Courts — JohnPotter @ 10:18 am Fri 10th June 2011

Queensland MP George Christensen recently spoke to the Australian Federal House in opposition to plans intended to undo Family Law reforms put in place by the Howard government in 2006.

I have never heard a politician so clearly expose the feminist, anti-father agenda. Why don’t we have anyone like this in NZ?

But justice and maintenance of rights for fathers is an affront to this feminist ideology from this government. What a clever way to rob men and rob fathers of their rights! Surely no-one would vote against amendments aimed at protecting children and preventing family violence. But that is not what these amendments are really about. There is already protection in the current Act. The fact is that these amendments actually trivialise what is a very serious matter – that being family violence.

The broadened definition of ‘family violence’ waters down the meaning of violence and will, in effect, make family violence more acceptable – precisely the opposite of the purported aim of these amendments. These amendments should be seen for what they are. They are a Trojan horse, full of malicious code designed to deprive fathers of their rights.

  3. Thanks to John Potter for posting the video and Wayne for the link so that I can write to give thanks to MP George Christensen for his heroic deed.
    I watched this video spellbound.
    Whilst George Christensen is no Martin Luther King Jnr or Winston Churchill when it comes to oratory it wasn’t a public address, but a deposition hearing.
    Even so he spoke with passion against the proposed new family law legislation.
    I think he rightly calls the proposed law changes for what it is – a trojan horse attempt at changing good law into feminist and therefore misandric law.
    I will certainly be writing an e-mail to him thanking him for setting a fine example INTERNATIONALLY of standing up to feminist bigotry.
    I will also be linking his video to spread his message further.
    Too bad such politicians don’t seem to exist in NZ.
    If they had then perhaps I and many, many other good fathers wouldn’t be alienated from our children today.

  4. Yes, thanks for posting this speech John. It was a good speech and well executed for a politician in parliament. I have written to Mr Christensen to express congratulations and gratitude for speaking such sense and honesty. I informed him that the amendments he opposes sound like what we have already in NZ. I wonder if his party will allow him to maintain his position…

  5. If you see how many women are in our Government you will see why.

    Plus the existent of Ministry of Women;s affair can be a reason.

    Which mean New Zealand is already so Feminized.

    I think male politician knows what they are up against and how stressful the

    process be. Maybe Australia is bit less Feminized to N.Z so it might have been

    possible to bring up and handle the issue.

    N.Z politician probably do not have the balls to bring up the issue face the

    hardship they have to deal with.

    There be a possibility that it can cause in parliament gander wars.

    But We can always hope for the courageous politician to handle the issue.

  6. George Christensen has accepted an invitation to be interviewed by Paul Elam on A Voice for Men Radio this coming Wednesday. I think his show begins at 4pm NZ time but I’m not absolutely certain.

    If you miss it you can always download it later and listen to it at your leisure.

  8. I was just wondering If Ministry of women’s affair effect mans rights?

    Comment by Shin Hee Yi — Mon 13th June 2011 @ 1:40 pm

  9. Hello Shin,
    Yes, they affect Men’s rights because they provide the government with false information.

    Comment by Skeptic — Mon 13th June 2011 @ 2:27 pm

  10. That’s some sad reality so the government just trust the date which comes from organization where only care about women. There got to be some change,If there should be a women;s affair there should be Men’s affair organization because no all man are perpetrator. This Generalization of men being D.V&Sex criminal got to stop someday other wise there women will find it very hard to find their partner further more there be a hate to ward woman in NZ society.

  11. what a great speech. He is someone who gets it. Can he come here and be our PM please? I am crying from watching it.

    The speaker tried to stop him pointing out the womens affairs (or whatever her title was) lies. And shame on the man trying to shout him down.

  12. Also it is a shame the house seemed to be empty!

  13. Shin – I disagree with your assessment that if there is a Ministry of Women’s Affairs, then there should be a Ministry for Men’s Affairs. The problem with governments and the bureaucracies that represent them is their need for constant growth. They are aggregates of people who seek power and control and even after a problem has been solved, they will continue to grow the bureaucracy by creating more problems to solve so that they can continue to excercise their power and impose upon others. If one-third of one percent of the population of parents commit domestic violence and a Ministry addresses that problem successfully, people in power for that Ministry will continue to pursue funds by lying about the scope of a problem by expanding the definition of domestic violence and child abuse from actual physical violence and other criminal behavior to behaviors which are not violent or criminal. They will change the definition of domestic violence to include responsible fiscal management – so that when a man (head of household) makes a responsible decision about his family’s finances, it is interpreted at domestic violence. Or when a man disciplines his children responsibly and consistently, it becomes interpreted as child abuse by the Ministry. The Ministry will continue to reinterpret the definitions of things like domestic violence and child abuse to include more and more behaviors that are not really domestic violence or child abuse to jusitfy its existence and continued funding. They will do this by lying and deceiving and manipulating the definitions and the people to whom they appeal for support. The solution to the problem of feminism and abuses by a Ministry for Women’s Affairs is not more government interference (ie. a Ministry for Men’s Affairs). The solution to government that is already too big and imposing is less government – elimination of the Ministry for women’s Affairs. Creating a Ministry for Men’s Affairs will compound the problem of government interference in the lives of people and create more problems. A Ministry for Men’s Affairs will be as vulnerable to corruption as a Ministry for Women’s Affairs.

  14. What always amuses me about the situation with women and their constant abuse of men through their own children is how they can think that any man in his right mind would decide to have children with them.

    How long do they seriously think that men will continue to play this stupid game as more and more of us learn about the way women are behaving?

    It is fairly clear that as the number of men learning these lessons BEFORE having children increases exponentially the desire NOT to have children will continue to increase. Combined with the up and coming male contraceptive options it sets the stage for the birth rate to dive bomb.

    I feel sorry for many of the current generation of young females who will enter into the time in their lives when they actually want to have kids, only to find out that no one will be willing to father them, oh well there is always a sperm bank……

    In the meantime us guys are being freed from all parental responsibilities as we simply refuse to donate our sperm to a woman who will use it as a path into our wallets, and a method of emotional abuse when she doesn’t get her way.

    It’s got to the point where to paraphrase a well known feminist “A man needs a woman like a fish needs a bicycle.”

  15. Mr A – I think men have always known about the evil disposition of women. It’s been the subject of literature, song, film and other media and artistic expression for millenia. It’s also discussed in the Bible and other religious texts, etc… I first became aware of feminism and the evil disposition of women and their male enablers when I was six years of age. The entire concept of someone having that kind of unmitigated power and control unmatched by any sense or reason scared the hell out of me. The problem is men, including myself, are biologically conditioned to interact with women. And that interaction is further forced or imposed upon men by the government and women themselves. Don’t think of the interaction between men and women as something men have a choice in – like we go out and actively pursue it and we shouldn’t and if we didn’t the problem would go away. Even if men didn’t pursue a relationship, women would pursue us like the predators they are and that pursuit would be enabled (in fact, it is enabled) by the government and the Central Banks. As a man, there is a price on your head from birth and women see that and they will do everything they can to extract that price, including kidnapping and abusing your common children. And the entire machinery of the government will help them do it.

  16. Shin – And it’s not just governments that are the problem concerning consolidation of people who pursue absolute power and control and abuse them. It’s governments, corporations (the Market) and churches (organized religions have become corporate entities unto themselves) – all against the Family. There are four pillars of civilization: the Family, the Market, the Government, and the Church. During the past forty years, the Government and the Market have allied to create an unholy alliance. And since the Church is, for the most part, a corporation (reprenting, in part, the Market), it has also allied with the Government and the Market. Those three entities (the Government, the Church and the Market) have consolidated their efforts to destroy the last obstacle to those seeking absolute power and control: the Family. As these other three pillars of civilization have become corrupted and destroy or integrate the Family, civilization is doomed. Feminists have become a corporate and government and religious entity unto themselves, as part of this pursuit to destroy the Family. As families are torn assunder, there is nothing left in support of civilization and all society and culture and life becomes an “every man/woman for themseleves” pursuit. There is no balance of power or nothing to mitigate the activities of those seeking absolute power and control and who want to impose upon and enslave the rest of us.

  17. Mr Anonymous- we are already seeing the demographic consequences- we hear this blather about who will support the aging population etc- because of the low birthrate, and the need for immigration to make up the difference.
    I remember studying Russia- there is a huge missing cohort of men, killed in WW2 and the various purges- then there is a harmonic gap of children, because of the unavailable fathers, and a further gap in the next generation etc. This same effect is already being seen in most ‘Western’ countries. In the future I forsee a huge culture change, either ‘our’ culture changes, or we get rolled over by other cultures, and our countries taken over.

  18. Remember what the feminists made: family court.

    New dedicated MRA’s are churned out daily by this feminist apparatus.
