Axe the witch

Expel the witch.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has sided with Tony Abbott and refused to join a “pile on” calling for embattled Liberal candidate Katherine Deves to be axed as the party’s candidate in the formerly blue-ribbon seat of Warringah.

Furious lobbying is under way with the Liberal Party to have Deves axed from the ticket in Warringah and a replacement candidate named before April 21, which is the cut-off date.

The Liberal Party is the right-wing party.

NSW Treasurer Matt Kean launched a blistering attack on Deves on Friday night, declaring she had to be dumped as the Liberal candidate for Warringah because of her comments about gender identity and LGBTQ issues.

“There should be no place for bigotry in a mainstream political party, let alone anywhere,” Kean told The Sydney Morning Herald.

“The Liberal Party should be about building a better country for everyone not dividing people based on their identity.”

Who is this terrible person, so bigoted that she offends even the right-wing party?

Deves runs a lobby group, Save Women’s Sport, which is opposed to the inclusion of trans women in women’s sport. She deleted her Twitter account but old tweets resurfaced in which she called trans children “surgically mutilated and sterilised” and said she was triggered by the rainbow flag.

But trans children [if they get surgery and/or puberty blockers or cross-sex hormones] are surgically mutilated and sterilized. Saying so is not an insult to the children, it’s an accusation of the reckless adults who make it happen.
