Captain Reality Strikes

Every now and then I wake up to find some enlightened and considerate individual has stumbled across an old blog post and been inspired to comment. As with my series on Tony Abbott, Nick Minchin (also here and here) and right-wing conspiracy theories concerning climate change science.

And so, months later comes a blast from a conservative think tank by a ‘Captain Reality’:

Nick Minchin is one of the only sensible politicians. He has seen through the lefty communist scientists who have taken over the world and are destroying our freedom.

When Mr Minchin comes to power the government will cut all funding to left wing scientists like climatologists and only fund real science like geology and chemistry which you need to mine and make refineries, which actually help people to live…

…unlike climate change, which is a lefty scientist LIE and BIG FAT TAX ON EVERYTHING and will kill billions with their TAX. Rudd is worse than Stalin.

P.S. I am not a crank =|:^0>
I am a patriot!

I love this stuff, gives me hope for Australian politics, for a real alternative … The Captain reassures us:

For those who are a bit slow, my previous post is a summary of the intellectual basis of today’s right.

  1. worse than stalin? well krudd hasn’t got quite the facial hair or devotion of Joe, but i reckon this captain reality kid needs a few years in the gulag anyway.

  2. I am the aforementioned Captain. Glad to see you’ve recognised my political genius.

    Unfortunately the Great Mr Minchin is leaving federal politics, but luckily for us, the Almost as Great and Much More Macho Mr Abbott will soon (Abbott for 2013!) be leading our great country into a glorious future where there’s no NBN and no Great Big Tax on Everything.

    He’ll get rid of Labor’s sissy socialist maternity leave scheme and bring in his awesome and much more manly maternity leave scheme (he’s got 15 daughters, don’t yer know).

    He’ll reform the tax system, by, err…
    cutting corporate tax! Yeah! Except the much more manly maternity leave scheme will cost a bit, so there’ll be a ‘corporate levy’ for that, but don’t worry, because the corporate tax cut will stimulate our economy so much that we’ll be richer so the tax take will rise which means he can get rid of the levy; it’s an upward spiral of awesomeness!

    If only the Great Mr Abbott can work out how to stuff ‘Mr Airy Fairy Latte-set Ivory-Tower-Scientist-suckup Lookie-me-I’m-a-famous-lawyer Turnbull’ into a wheelie bin, and replace him with Bob Katter without anyone noticing, then we’ll have a Liberal party worthy of its name. Liberal, Liberal, Liberal!

    It makes me teary just thinking of it!
