His advertisers are dropping away.

Hemight actually be done this time.
Many of the advertisers come back after the heat dies down, eg: Mercedes Benz after his comments on Julia Gillard.

SGO and others will be keeping a close eye on this to keep the pressure up over the next few months on those that do.

You could argue that I'm a troll and misogynist. But I am absolutely not a climate change denier. Not in the slightest. I just didn't agree with her anti-Australia virtue signaling.

The facts suggest that Australia is more progressive than NZ. More refugee intake per capita, better trends against co2 production etc. She is a dishonest worm, who had to sell her soul to the devil to gain power. Leftist cream their pants over a woman who says what they want to hear (while her actions ensure that the opposite occurs).

While the centre-right search for substance in their politicians, the left care only about identity. "A woman / minority gave an opinion!? Let us get down on our knees and worship their wisdom!"

I hate Alan Jones, but there was nothing offensive about his comment. Just SJWs deliberately misinterpreting a common saying in order to score points.
Surely someone should shove a sock down this persons throat!! Unless this person is a female of course, in which case I unreservedly apologise.:rolleyes:

2GB will be thanking Churf for an extra bit of publicity out of this. A few advertisers are wringing the matter out with an extra dollop of virtue signalling but there's a reason they chose to buy the airtime. They will be back quietly when things cool down.

Hehe - whatever. Fun to watch the carnage in the meantime.

Not so sure about that, especially now the ‘backhander’ comment has emerged. Not good enough.

Storm in a teacup chief. Threatening violence of any kind against a woman is not cool... I agree with this. But people speaking on air for hours upon hours every week are prone to make gafes. Any reasonable person could conclude that he was referencing the common "put a sock in it" phrase, rather than suggesting forced asphyxiation or any such horrific conduct.

There are bigger issues to focus on.
It's only because he's right wing and all the LWNJs hate Jones with a passion (like they do with everyone who's not "left"). She's a buck toothed, communist, hypocrite who is very happy sticking her nose into Australian politics where it's not welcome. She got exactly what she deserves. No Prime Minister should ever make repeated negative comments about their neighbour like she does, especially when they're wrong. The most obvious example was her criticising Australia for not taking in enough refugees and yet we take in more per capita that New Zealand.

You're getting confused. NZ resettle refugees, we stick them in cages in other countries.

Communist? Is she nationalising any of the Kiwi industries, moving control of the means of production back to the people, when's her first five year plan being issued? Communist, bollocks she is.

Cages hey? They live in far better conditions than most of our soldiers. They chose to come here illegally and then complain about the very good conditions? Tell someone who cares.
Soldiers have their kids in the barracks with them? Soldiers get raped by staff and then get denied medical treatment?

Wow. The armed services are in a bad state!

McCarthyism is alive and well in the 2010s. I have never heard so much about communism before. You'd think half of the world was communist.

As far as Oz politics goes she should put a sock in it. They have their own unique problems in NZ. A left wing socialist from NZ we do not need telling us what to do. As the saying goes she should look after her own knitting.(is that allowed) mm not sure ..sorry...NOT.

It's the LEVEL of outrage that gets me.
It's not like she said " Australians are all the sons of whores " or anything is it.


But , YET AGAIN the right never saw a perceived injustice they didn't melt like a 3yr old whose mummy didn't buy them an ice cream over.

Glass-jaws
Plenty of Australians would be sons of whores..statistical fact.

Well of course her teeth aren’t actually buck, but if they were, it’s hardly something that can be helped.
Jones on the other hand, can help his nasty, bogan male approach to people he disagrees with. Given he works with words daily, one would think he’d have more of a clue about how to use them in a decent manner. But nope. Always takes the path of the lowest common denominator- really dopey.
