The radical left have learned a ‘sweet trick’ to fool the apathetic masses: Panahi

The radical left has learned a “sweet trick to fool the apathetic masses” by giving a wholesome name to a divisive agenda and then ramming through radical policies while labelling dissenters bigots says Sky News host Rita Panahi.
“Groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa have names we all agree with, but their violent, divisive antics and Marxist ideology are a different matter entirely,” she said.
Closer to home programs such as "Safe Schools" and "Respectful Relationships" sound wonderful until you take a closer look at the detail and the radical gender theory that underpins much of its ideology.
Ms Panahi said so-called anti-conversion legislation which just passed the Victorian parliament was yet another example where a name you couldn’t object to hid a far more “sinister” set of laws.
The new laws will introduce changes to the Equal Opportunity Act which will negatively impact women and may make it unlawful for parents and counsellors to provide sound guidance to children confused about their gender identity.
“In a case that came to light late last year the parents watched on helplessly as their family was torn apart because they wanted their 15-year old child to receive non-invasive psychological care instead of irreversible sex change treatment”.
National Association of Practising Psychiatrists and The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists have both separately written to the Victorian Attorney-General about their serious concerns with the 'anti-conversion' bill, which they fear will criminalise therapy for troubled youngsters experiencing gender incongruence issues.
NAPP President Dr Philip Morris says the legislation is based “to a very large extent on false unscientific proposition," a statement which Ms Panahi said was supported by the “normally woke” AMA.
She accused the Victorian opposition of “spinelessly” falling into the trap set by Labor because they did not want to be seen opposing legislation which was “far more than the virtuous name suggests.”
