It's not just Alan Jones that's guilty of a twisted mind, so are his loyal listeners.

I’ve been talking lately about all the things that South Australia has to be grateful for, especially if you want to do a comparison with other states. And one huge big ‘thank the lord’ is that you don’t have Alan Jones polluting your lovely fresh air.

Although usually the one pointing his moral finger at everyone else, this week’s he’s truly outdone and undone him self with remarks about Julia Gillard’s late father.

“The old man recently died because of shame. To think that she told lies every time she stood for parliament.”

I think you’d officially label that a career earthquake rating about 9 on the Richter scale of deplorable and totally showing the deranged sort of hate that he pumps out, usually more subtly every single day.

And surely as such, the aftershocks are going to be extremely damaging to the building he broadcasts from, and the credibility he still thinks he holds in Australia.

I mean we’ve all despised someone enough at some point in time but would you really ever, ever say something like that? Publicly or even under your breath?

Anyone that even contemplates a yes to this in regards to someone they’ve just thought of, who hasn’t murdered someone, as the case recently with Jill Meagher really needs to consider some regular therapy, maybe a really good foot rub, and a long holiday somewhere special to remind you that you’ve lost sight of the fundamental elements of being a decent human.

The scary and infuriating thing is that a man such as Alan is paid millions and millions of dollars because he’s a man with an opinion apparently worth hearing, and if you had never heard of him before, would imagine his track record must be purer than the driven snow. You’d be equally off course.

So this twisting the knife into the back of a grieving woman routine comes hot on the heels of him frothing at the mouth with claims that “women are destroying the joint!”

The joint? Which is what you’d normally need to smoke to be this confused.

And what a fascinating calculation on women if you add up a few historical points on who started pretty much every worldwide shemozzle and mass loss of life. But you don’t hear us women holding up ‘joint wrecking’ stats now do you?

It surprises me that he has any female following at all, however I do suspect some of his faithfuls, might be of an era that were used to men telling them where their place is regardless of it’s merits.

And, one would have to wonder that even a man who must believe he is God, after all how would he know what Julia’s Dad died of if he hadn’t had a chat with him at the pearly gates, must be able to hear the collective prayers of those that believe his reign should come to an end?

Online there’s an angry mob growing against Alan Jones, many of who are throwing the age card at him saying that given he’s in his 70’s, it’s just time to move on. I don’t like the age thing being a defence against someone; just I don’t like using blatant cruelty to win friends at a lunch.

When you’ve used all your material to rile up the masses and keep yourself relevant but still refuse to recognise you’re getting boring, or worse, toxic and detached, then you will end up disgracing yourself enough that there is no chance of going out on a high.

If you’ve created a life in a verbal shooting gallery, transfixed on being the hero that shoots their next baddie down, retirement if you get there, is going to be a terrifying time of reflection.

On that note, I’m off to make myself a nice cup of coffee. And thanks to Alan Jones I just remembered it’s time to pop a fresh filter in. After all, if you keep the same one in for too long, the coffee becomes ever so bitter.

  1. I would say most certainly yes. I have tried, time and time again to engage in a serious and measured conversation with the kind of person who listens to Jones but it is impossible. They either quote Jones verbatim or they resort to name calling and vitriol – usually directed at myself because I don’t share their world view. They offer no solutions, they just highlight problems.

  2. Hi Dean – you’ve hit the nail right on the head. I can’t tolerate the attitude of just presenting the problem but not the solution. That’s precisely the type of AM listener that is keeping these negative blokes in their seats. It’s a shame…..but I don’t believe it’ll be forever. Those stations need new listeners all the time and I guarantee you the reason so many people like you and I aren’t regular listeners is because it’s literally too draining and depressing. Thanks for your comments!!!

  3. I do agree with all of the ideas you have introduced on your post.
