“If it weren’t for my Australian citizenship,” writes Traceeee Hutchison, “I suspect I’d be frogmarched into indefinite detention. Is this what we want our country to look like?”

Beats me. Let’s put it to a vote in comments:

• YES! Put Traceeee away forever.

• NO! Traceeee’s detention should not be indefinite.

    1. I vote YES – with the condition that she’s made to wear duct tape for 23 out of every 24 hours so everyone else doesn’t have to hear her whine.

      There’s punishment and then there’s cruel and unusual.

    1. No, just six month’s detention living as an ordinary citizen of, say, Iran or Cuba. It might help her distinguish between imaginary oppression and the real kind.

    1. If we hadn’t progressively closed down all our asylums for the insane over the last few decades, then yes, there is unfortunately no chance of Traceeeee being sent away to the funny farm for an indefinite period.

      Traceeeee should be happy that she’s allowed to remain in “community care”.

    1. Who cares? She’s such a nonentity that it wouldn’t make any difference one way or the other. Besides, these people bravely like to pretend that they are in imminent danger of being frogmarched into detention. Unlike Cuban librarians who try to keep “counterrevolutionary” books on their shelves and are thrown into real prisons for years of hard time.

    1. Does indefinitely mean, once dead her smelly carcass stays in the detention center forever?

      I think that would be a cruel and unusual punishment for the guards – I couldn’t agree with that.

    1. She should be thankful we do not have detention for ego driven, self obsessed scribes, with the ‘Lisa Simpson’ complex. Traceeee should not worry about her character, re; citizenship, her writings speak volumes on that subject. Speaking of which, this damn women really does go on with some sanctimonious drivel. With all her varied friends and acquaintances, if she were to emigrate, I am sure she would fit somewhere else in the world. . . I think, maybe Cuba, Venezuela.

      I think I’m living in a fascist state, but then I’m a Liberal-voting John Howard devotee who also shuns political correctness.

      I also know what our discrimination laws outlaw (hint:anything that upsets the luvvies) and get called racist and bigoted just because I speak my mind without couching it in fluffy terminology.

    1. Actually part of me wishes we could indefinately lock up all these smelly hippies, halfwit leftists, enviro-mongs, troglydite old labor types and any artist who’s ever recieved a grant instead of a comission, but it would probably cost us more than paying the bastards welfare and compo benefits; deportation is not an option, as who would take them, and while lethabarb isn’t epensive it might raise the ire of the UN, and make us look a bit uncivilised.

      Unfortunately it’s the price of democracy that these idiots be given the freedom to prove their idiocy, but there’s nothing in any democratic constitution that requires us to listen to or take heed of their moronic babbling, or to feed, clothe and house them.

    1. “If it weren’t for my Australian citizenship,” writes Traceeee Hutchison, “I suspect I’d be frogmarched into indefinite detention. Is this what we want our country to look like?”

      Lefties are always fantasizing about their own imminent incarceration in prison camps by alleged fascists like Howard and Bush. Of course, it never happens, never comes close, and is never even proposed except as satire.

      Funny thing, though. When you look around the world for places where journalists are actually detained, imprisoned, and tortured, they turn out to be places with regimes that are excused and defended by people just like Traceeee.

      Posted by lyle on 2007 07 21 at 01:30 AM • permalink


    1. Yah yah Trackers, what fucking bullshit. This is just the same sort of misery-envy that all pampered people under pressure to have an opinion come up with.
      But listen, for overseas viewers, Tracee is also the station manager of 3RRR in Melbourne, one of the most widely admired public radio stations in the world, and the only one I listen to, and I am a subscriber.
      The reason it is such a great radio station is because of the relatively low level of editorial control that they exercise over the music or commentary.
      The control is still there of course, and the political opinions expressed by various announcers are still full of the sort of naïve, self-indulgent, ignorant, hypocritical and inconsistent hyperbolae and drama-creep that you would expect from white, Western, middle class, tertiary educated prats like Tracee. If “wings” mean anything then the rightmost opinions expressed on RRR still wouldn’t reach the dorsal feathers, but I guess I get a certain morbid glee out of scrutinising examples of this (the same pleasure that drives the comments page here I think), and there is enough good music interspersed to make it worthwhile (except for Wednesday mornings).
      But to give you a keyhole yet blood-chilling view of what this political stream can lead to, and to throw Tracee’s faux-angst into a more complete light…
      I know they would say “oh but that was just light-hearted!”, Biggsy (“On the blower” Friday mornings) recently asked listeners to ring in with what they would ask for if they had three wishes. So naturally it was all about forcing others to do what the listener thought was best for the planet (people to only ride bikes to work, John Howard to die etc) but the one that sticks in my memory was one person who said they would close down all other radio stations. So it isn’t enough that people are free to listen to a great station like RRR. No. Other citizens with no interest, or with other interests and other choices, would be forced at least to mimic the behaviour of the politically correct. No listener was alive to the problem that from the point of view of other citizens, no matter how they are defined, “wish-realisation” might not be an altogether fair and democratic decision-making process…but of course they were just joking…

(I refuse to read The Age until they sack its reprehensible editor – the man who told the ABC that Donald Wood was ‘insensitive’ for describing his terrorist kidnappers as ‘arseholes’.) So, asinine as Tracee is, she’s somehow benefitting from Tim’s exposure of her stupidity. Go figure.

    1. As a general rule totalitarian states don’t let their opponents on air, let alone employ them at a government owned radio station, and for a larger wedge than the head of government gets.

      I guess Radio 2BL is the new salt mines.

      This kinda’ stich predates the Howard government.  All through the Hawke years the lunar left told us we were marching towards fascism. Of course in the Fraser years they might have been half right, Mal believing in the divine right of kings and all.

      But the bigger question I have for you, Messrs Ruddock and Andrews, is not whether my Australian citizenship is safe. It is the kind of Australia I am a citizen of. I barely recognise it

      The men and women who fought to save this country from actual totalitarianism would barely recognise it either:

      [15 Dec 2005]

      …The Australian reports that a community hall linked to a Uniting Church was burned to the ground early yesterday, carol singers were spat on and church buildings peppered with gunfire.

      On Tuesday, Cardinal George Pell asked gangs of Middle Eastern descent not to target Christmas celebrations, after families were abused and gunshots fired into cars at a primary school’s carols night in western Sydney on Monday.

      Cardinal Pell said the attack in the multicultural suburb of Auburn, where Lebanese Muslims are believed to have turned on Lebanese Christians, was “apparently motivated by religious intolerance”.

      He said: “I am deeply concerned about the targeting of Christmas celebrations at schools for students as young as five years old.

      In response to yesterday’s Uniting Church incident, members of the Arab Christian and Arab Muslim communities have called for a curfew for all Lebanese youths over the weekend.

      Police believe the attack on the hall, in the suburb of Auburn, was intended to destroy the Uniting Church adjacent, while nearby St Thomas’s Anglican Church, which has a primarily Chinese congregation, had all its front windows smashed. Three of the attacks were on churches within minutes of each other.

      The night before, Molotov cocktails were used in an attack on an Anglican Church in Macquarie Fields in the city’s far southwest…

    1. I think a few [of my friends] would still call themselves Christian (I’m not sure whether that’s a plus or a minus these days 

      Personally, I don’t have much truck with any religion, but why is Traceeeee comfortable in singling out Christianity? Replace “Christian” with, say, “Muslim” and she’d be running for cover.

      The sexual orientation in my circle swings from, gay and bisexual to metrosexual. I’m not sure whether straight any of these is a crime in Australia …

      As Traceeeee well knows none is a crime in Australia, although being straight is certainly not popular.

      … when I lived in Byron Bay

      Wouldn’t you know it?

      I’m worried that … you’ll find a way to make me take the [Australian citizenship] test on account of the colourful company on my SIM card.

      The girl deludes herself.

      Is this what we want our country to look like? A place where phoning a friend has taken on a whole new dimension? A place where citizenship is a measure of character?

      Her naivety and ignorance of the world genuinely stuns me.  She writes like she’s still in high school. Oops, maybe she is?

      But the bigger question I have for you, Messrs Ruddock and Andrews, is not whether my Australian citizenship is safe. It is the kind of Australia I am a citizen of. I barely recognise it.

      Where’s her question?  But I do agree, the kind of Australia that has nurtured a mind like Traceeeee’s is very worrying.  Or should we just blame the Victorian Education Department?

      Tracee Hutchison is a writer and broadcaster.

      Well, The Age does allow her to put pen to paper, but I wouldn’t call it writing.  As for her broadcasts, I’d call them more like petulant diatribes.

      I’m in favour of her permanent detention.  Maybe in one of those concentration camps she’s always rabbiting on about.

    1. I’d like to reward her with an all expenses paid overseas trip, outside of the usual fake americanised coca-colonised tourist traps.

      A fortnight in a village in Zimbabwe first. Then a few weeks in Belarus, a trip to the Sudan, then perhaps a month in a commune in North Korea. A stay in Cuba, to see that there a degrees of horror, and that Cuba is small beer compared with some tyrannies. Finally, getting “close to nature” in the lawless Golden Triangle, then a similar stay in the Northwest Frontier of Pakistan.

      I genuinely believe Tracee and company mean well. I also believe that they are so myopic, having never experienced real Evil in their lives, that they magnify glitches, errors and   real but minor problems into 3-act dramas. More than half the time the problems only exist in their imaginations, so when they do find real albeit minor ones, no-one listens.

      We have to be careful too – because our society is not perfect, and just because some immature, ignorant Moonbat says something, it’s not always wrong. Even the best of us screw up, and the press and co should be calling us to account when we do. But making stuff up is easier for them, and half the time, they know no better.

      Nobody said our society is perfect.

      But it’s pretty darn good. Find one better and I’ll spot you $100.

    1. #42, I’m a 3RRR subscriber from way back and love most public broadcasting for the DIVERSITY!) but the whining about how bad everyone else is and how great “we” are has always irritated me. Even when I agree with their views it irritates me!

      This also occurs on 3CR (another community station with some great shows but lots of anti-Semitism). Both these stations are very self-conscious about their “community status ” (as is the ABC) even though much of it is genuine, both stations really push the anti-capitalism line while using all the capitalist strategies to stay on the air, contradictory to say the least.

      Naturally, for consistency’s sake, they should all be shot.

      Look forward to hearing you On the Blower one day, Mr or Ms Honey.

      Kath Letch is the station manager and has been for quite a few years.

    1. “The sexual orientation in my circle swings from, gay and bisexual to metrosexual.”

      BTW, what the hell is a metrosexual?

      Is that someone who has sex with an entire metropolitan area?

      Posted by Dave Surls on 2007 07 21 at 04:11 AM • permalink


    1. I wonder about the sexual orientation of someone who’s a ‘metrosexual’. I thought it had nothing to do with sex. I thought it had more to do with the “modern-day snag, who wears makeup, and pays more than usual attention to his appearance…”
      Now I see it’s a sexual preference, from the way she’s bunched them together.
      What exactly is that?

    1. I vote Yes. Traceee and her ilk moan and bitch about concentration camps and detention so hard and so often it seems unfair to deny them the wish-fulfilment they crave.
      Here in this country she apparently despises Tracee is free to Photoshop John Howard or George W Bush into a pair of Mickey Mouse ears and a swastika armband. For Iraqis under the terror of Saddam Hussein, such an act would have been instant suicide. If they were lucky. More likely they would have been tortured until they gave up friends and family, just so her jailers wouldn’t run out of playmates.

      To paraphrase our Prime Minister, Where is the Iraqi Traceeee Hutchison?

      I painted my face green, and I

      And a green rubber suit,
      If you don’t frog-march me, I’ll just die.


      It’s torture, you Bushitler shit!
      You going to let me just sit
      In the dark with my cat
      And my new tin foil hat –
      It’s something I said, isn’t it?

    1. Zoe, beware of people who mean well.  Many of them are no wiser than any other human being and even less self- (or, indeed, other-) aware.  Especially among the political sorts.

      Traceeeeee’s a goose and I think goose-stepping is what she wants to do.  I vote for TRJS’s solution.

      If Labor wins and the law remains unchanged, what will you write about then?  nappies?

    1. “If it weren’t for my Australian citizenship,” writes Traceeee Hutchison, “I suspect I’d be frogmarched into indefinite detention. Is this what we want our country to look like?”

      What makes liberals/leftists think people care enough about their bleatings that they would lift a finger to silence them?  If it wasn’t for Tim’s blog, I wouldn’t even know her name.  And in spite of, I still don’t care what she says.

      I don’t care
      I don’t care
      No no Traceeee

    1. The ones who mean well are the worst of all. They’re worse than straight-out villains, because they can’t be convinced that what they are doing is wrong. Or as C.S. Lewis said:

      Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

      (I believe that this quote has been used on the internet only about 5,000,000 times, and still may safely be used, as opposed to that “rough men” quote (for example) of Orwell’s that I am now thoroughly sick of encountering.)

      (reads Andrea’s comment – Yikes!)

      People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

      Um, okay, um, well … Tracee should just shut the fuck up.

    1. the 3RRR & 3CR idiots have never known diversity.  they were schoolkids or undergrads when interest rates were at 18% & unemployment was high, or in some cases not even born.  they have absorbed the hartley/halfpenny/kirner ethos without question.  they will naturally be the ones triumphing when howard loses & sniffing round for rudd government handouts/jobs.  despicable cretins the lot of ‘em, who will go on to be intolerable lefty smartarses like kate langbroek or dave hughes, still making life miserable for us while taking the packer/fairfax/stokes dollar

    1. I’m with Squawkbox – send her to live as a normal citizen (not a Westerner with special privileges) in Iran or any one of a hundred other places for six months or a year.  Then let her come back to Australia and try to make those claims with a straight face.

    1. Traceee is an idiot, and for the Age to continue publishing her sh*t under the guise of journalism is an indication of the gutter depths of that paper

      But on a serious note, why Traceeeeee and her idiot companion journos make me so mad is when I listen to stories from people who escaped tyranny to come here

      Yesterday an elderly man told me his story – escaping communism in Yugoslavia – he had to pass by his parents house but he couldn’t go in to say goodbye because the soldiers were after him and his mates – he made it to Italy and then to OZ without any possessions

      Traceee should suffer a bit like this old bloke before she denigrates this country

      Send her to Saudi Arabia I say

    1. So if I can just sum up here, we love Tracee. We love Leunig. We love all moonbats. And the louder and more prominent they are the more symbolic they are of the freedoms we enjoy. Not just the freedom of the press, or the freedom of speech, or even the freedom to be stupid and wrong, but the freedom to hold your hand up in public and come out as a five-star fuckwit on a flaming unicycle, with ideas that offend everyone from citizens to business and government, and which in most countries of the world would lead to the frogmarch and the cell.
      We love you all. Your very appearance gives bald-faced lie to your every thought, and the most memorable thing you will ever do is fail to see this.
      Keep it up.
