Episode 111 – 29 August 2017

In episode 111 the Fist is joined by the 12th Man.

01:02 We discuss:

  • What is the best date for Australia Day,
  • 10:51 Stan Grant and Cook’s statue,
  • 15:30 Trans-generational trauma,
  • Aborigines who elect to identify with part of their ancestry and after dividing their own identity complain about inclusion of that identity in society.

22:13 We look at the removal of racist place names in Queensland such as Nigger Creek, Nigger bounce, Mount Nigger and seven instances of Nigger Creek. The Fist gives reasons why these should be changed but not our historical statues. The 12 Man disagrees.

29:10 A recent survey shows that 39% of Australians agree with what Pauline Hanson did by wearing the burqa in Parliament house while 38% disapprove.

33:03 Australia’s former Human Rights Commissioner  Gillian Triggs says sharia law should be allowed in Australia.

36:15 We look at the chances of successfully objecting to prayers in parliament by virtue of section 116 of the Constitution.

42:04 Clive Palmer thinks his Catholic credentials will help him in his court case.

43:43 Statisticians suggest that a new standard of probability should be used in research studies.

52:24 We look at the evolutionary basis of identity politics and note that it has reached the point that people are looking for insults.

59:30 Greg Craven is a well respected lawyer but favours the seal of the confessional.

1:05:24 The Fist suggests that the Church is like Mayweather and the opponents are like McGregor. The Church is playing rope a dope with its opponents.

1:09:53 Privilege as regards priests, journalists and lawyers. The Fist explains the difference.

1:15:33 The 12th man previously had a high opinion of Greg Sheridan but hopefully the Fist changes his mind.

All cultures are not equal or at least they are not equal in preparing people to be productive in an advanced economy.

1:21:30 We finish with a defence of the bad white working class.

It is the working class who are likely to suffer economic disadvantage from migration and are least likely to cope with politically correct speech and the people who champion ideas often do so knowing that they are immune from the negative effects.

Trans generational trauma – from a man playing a guitar using western chord progressions, using a sophisticated audio system and playing to a national audience after sitting next to the Attorney General and claiming to speak on behalf of all Aboriginal people.

Essential report

‘Sharia’s no different to Catholicism’: Ex-human rights commissioner Gillian Triggs says Sharia law courts SHOULD be allowed in Australia – just as the Vatican already influences everyday life

Official prayers in federal parliament are divisive and unconstitutional and should be scrapped

Clive Palmer thinks that beefing up his Catholic credentials is a good career move.

It will be much harder to call new findings ‘significant’ if this team gets its way

Testimonials

Only just found this podcast. LOVE IT

Really great to see some honest conversation, that doesn’t seem concerned with making the truth more palatable for the fair of heart. I think we really need a lot more of this.

Great listen

Fantastic podcast and gets better every episode. BUT if you can’t handle the truth about the dismal state of Australian politics give this one a miss.

The Happy Dog

Look forward to this podcast every week

This is an entertaining and intelligent discussion of politics, religion, education and other important issues in Australia. If you’re not interested in politics or if you’re confused by it then you need to listen to these guys. They remove the mystery and put forward an analysis of the issues that will entertain and inform you.

Ep 81, one of the best and most enjoyable

Wel done Trevor and Hugh, one of the best Eps to date. Professional delivery by both.

Episode 68 right on the mark

This episode was just the right length, but more importantly, was a little more measured in addressing the topics. I admire the Iron Fist in the way he can craft rational statements about appalling behaviour in the topics discussed, and I found the 12th Man to be a good balance to the Iron Fist. I wish the Velvet Glove wouldn’t giggle at important topics or when religious thinking is described – we already find them ridiculous, but laughing every time is a bit much after hours of listening to episodes. This is a fun but semi-serious podcast that everyone should listen to, and I thank them for making the time to produce it.

Keep it going…

A refreshing podcast. Rational discussion on topics many won’t tackle honestly. I don’t agree with everything you say but I love the way your subject matter is explored and sometimes debated. Great work guys.

Don’t listen to these baby eating heathens, God will kill an angel for every episode that you listen to.

Presenting the Inconvenient Truth

These guys are at the forefront of challenging religious privilege. If you want to be up-to-date on all the wacky goings-on by the religion pushers in this world and their attempts successful or otherwise to influence the political and social spheres of our lives then this is your podcast. We need more of this advocacy for a secular world view. Be like me or Bill and don’t miss an episode.

Christmas Special

All podcasts are great but the christmas special takes the cake. Excellent show guys.

Australian Centred Debate

This podcast is great for those looking for debates about secularism, religious power structures and Western liberal democratic ideals, all with a focus on the Great Southern Land. The two main protagonists bounce ideas off each other and occasionally guests are brought in to give different perspectives (I love to hate Right Wing Tony!). These are not Left Wing Nutters, I know as I tend to that description too often myself and disagree with them at times. Rationality and free thought rule! The boys don’t mind if you throw in your two cents, in fact, I think they love to hear from the public. Very worth a listen.
