Anyone else remember how the Libs described PM Julia Gillard? And yet Tanya Plibersek is made to feel she should apologise for such a harmless comment about Dutton that Twitter has been meme-ing abt forever.
Starting to think women are held to a different standard than most men. https://t.co/2SH5eV5vmFhttps://t.co/NTtnzRkZns
So @LiberalAus, yeah you know, the party that heaped all kinds of vile personal insults on Julia Gillard, is now clutching their pearls at Tanya’s Voldemort comment.
Suck it up snowflakes!
Alan Kohler: This was Julia Gillard’s election victory | The New Daily https://t.co/nifH8M0E3x Women rose up against Morrison and his Govt. But they still don't get it. They need a fresh face at the top & a fresh approach. Liberal Party so stuck in the past.
@mjrowland68@tanya_plibersek@PeterDutton_MP 2/ PM Julia Gillard was characterised as a "witch", her appearance mocked (by men who were often far from perfect physical specimens). The appalling menu at a Libs fundraiser springs to mind.
No wonder the Libs have a 'woman problem'. #auspol
@JonesHowdareyou@Pikiran2ku maybe @mjrowland68 you should have reminded your audience [if you still have one] abt the disgusting tirade of sexist filth directed against Julia Gillard as PM??? Has anyone on tory side of politics [including well known LNP media propagandists] ever expressed any contrition???
@BreakfastNews@mjrowland68@AlboMP Seriously Michael how long before you throw your arms in the air and tell Lisa and her crony mates that millions of ABC people have had enough. Get Dutton on and ask him about his references to Julia Gillard and countless others. Run with hounds and…..
@cadarbara@robynbryant33@Chris_Murray48 That was my first thought actually but there you go… and let’s not forget all those politicians who lined up in front of all those disgusting signs denigrating PM Julia Gillard.
@GemmaTognini@tanya_plibersek Despite agreeing that Tanya shouldn’t have said this (despite it being a common moniker for Dutton) this is total bullshit. Julia Gillard was subjected to much worse. Didn’t impact anyone’s career.
@JoshButler Er calling Albo the Manchurian Candidate “ Julia Gillard “ ditch the witch “ ? Tanya apologized , Dutton has never apologized the Manchurian candidate accusation was said in coward’s castle under parliamentary privilege!
@10NewsFirst Talk about flogging a dead horse! The way the media & opposition treated Julia Gillard, and now you pretend to have morals! Fact - he does look like Voldemort! Seriously, move the Fk on! #ThisIsNotJournalism
This stuff doesn't even rate compared to the vile & evil stuff that both men and women on the "conservative" side of Australian politics and media said about Julia Gillard on a daily basis, and I'm not aware that ended any careers, even though it should have.
@mjrowland68@tanya_plibersek@PeterDutton_MP Perhaps you've forgotten the ABC made a sitcom based on Julia Gillard and her partner Tim's life. It was meant to humiliate the 1st female PM and make her male partner feel like he was diminished by being the partner to a successful woman.
Where the ABC apology?
@mjrowland68@tanya_plibersek@PeterDutton_MP Michael Rowland , that is NOT a stinging insult. Calling Julia Gillard a witch displayed next to gallows, that IS criminal . So get of your high horse and stop 🛑 licking the ARSES of the LNP .
@lavosaurus So you ok with the LNP criticising Tanya Plibersek's looks? I hated when the media did it to Julia Gillard, this should be no different. There is plenty to critise Dutton about, looks are really irrelevant and low iq.
