An Open Letter to Cory Bernardi

6 Jan

Sadly, some political parties do have them. Dangerously, most of the right wing in current Australia are them. Bernardi is extreme in his views, but he isn’t alone and that is the truly worrying truth. Many are saying he has gone too far this time, is outed by his own extreme dogma, but let’s not forget that much of this was known before he wrote Conservative Revolution, he’s been demoted from the junior front bench of opposition by Turnbull and forced to stand down as adviser to Abbott and still he stands proud, determined and utterly unchecked in his extremes, which are unpalatable to most. There is no condemnation by Abbott, no distancing by Abbott, in fact, no public statement by Abbott. One must, therefore, conclude Abbott agrees. Even if he comes out tomorrow, next week, eventually to refute Bernardi or downplay Bernardi, his tardiness can be seen as nothing short of agreement and of complicity. I’m disgusted in the Bernardi’s views, and I’m deeply concerned for Australia with this lot of government politicians, so many of whom are purveyors of extreme and who seemingly want to suppress everything and everyone that is not personally believed in by them, and/or which does not turn a profit.

Cory and Sinead BernardiDear Cory Bernardi,

Before you ignore this letter like all the other outraged mail you must be getting in response to your book, The Conservative Revolution, you should know that this is not a letter of grievance. It is one of congratulations. I want to congratulate you for your honesty and your commitment to your ideals, which you are obviously unwilling to hide whether you’re causing yourself and your government political pain or not. Well done Cory. Brave man.

I also want to congratulate you for forcing this honesty onto Tony Abbott. Some in the media are already reporting that Abbott is distancing himself from your published work, but when you actually scrutinise what Abbott has said, he’s done nothing of the sort. Today, through a spokesperson mind you, Abbott released this statement:

“Senator Bernardi is a backbencher and his views do not represent the position of the government”.
