The Left: ‘Wording of DV reporting is important (but only when it suits us)’

Does MLO need to keep pointing out leftist hypocrisy with every news story as it arrives? Okay then.

Police have, this week, accused a mother of murdering her two disabled children. The horrific story is difficult to comprehend.

It’s reported the mother, Maree Mavis Crabtree, 51, was allegedly responsible for killing her son whose body was found last July and her own daughter. Both children were originally believed to have committed suicide.

The mother was arrested on Wednesday and charged with murder, torture and fraud. Police will allege she slowly poisoned her children – all to benefit financially. The investigation has been described as “extremely traumatic”.

What adds to the heartbreak is seeing leftist media use these tragic events in a transparent attempt to push their agenda.

This is a case of murder – and surely, this is domestic violence? However, it has not been reported as such.

The Red Heart Campaign, supposedly a campaign for victims of domestic violence wrote, “Dear Red Hearters. It is with extreme anger and sadness that we ask you to share another [red heart] for another woman lost to violence in Australia. Police will allege that in 2012, an 18-year-old woman was murdered at an address in Maudsland in Queensland. The young woman’s 26-year-old brother was allegedly murdered in 2017. Their mother has been charged over their deaths and the torture of their sibling.”



Is this how ridiculous pushing the warped narrative of “violence against women” has become? You spin the death of two children, a boy and a girl, murdered at the hands (allegedly) of their own mother, to push your line?


Or, is it?

Talk about lack of respect…

Why is the government pouring millions of dollars of funding into fuelling this gendered narrative rather than tackling the truth? This is not money well spent – and it is certainly not progress.
