Anti-Israel Jew Michael Brull has strong opinions on the blow-back from Larissa Behrendt's Twitter attack on Bess Price:
Perhaps the most vicious attack came from Marcia Langton, writing that Behrendt has “a repulsive hatred of everything that Bess stands for: the rights of Aboriginal women in remote communities to be protected from sexual abuse and violence”. Similarly, The Australian editorialised that Behrendt and others opposed to the Intervention “are prepared to risk the health, education, physical safety and futures of other Aborigines in the cause of an out-dated, leftist agenda which privileges "rights" above well-being. There is a "let them eat cake" touch about it all.”

Get it? Behrendt supports raping women and poverty in Indigenous communities.

Turning to reality, it may be worthwhile to find out just why Behrendt considered Price’s comments to be so offensive.

Price is a recipient of the Bennelong Medal. Another medal-winner is Mal Brough - a former Minister for Indigenous Affairs.

Tony Abbott and Philip Ruddock – well known for their sensitive views on race and Indigenous issues – have presented these awards. Kevin Andrews also gave an award: yes, the Immigration Minister who slashed our intake of African refugees because they “don't seem to be settling and adjusting into the Australian way of life”.
Brull, whose writing is suddenly, and miraculously, no longer the garbled Loewenstein-esque mess it once was, is obviously receiving considerably editorial support from ABC online editor Jonathan Green, et al.

The results are a classic of Lefty smear and innuendo. Brull starts off by noting that the "vicious attack came from Marcia Langton" but ignores Langton's qualifications to comment and immediately segues to an editorial in The Australian which apparently suggests that "Behrendt supports raping women and poverty in Indigenous communities." Right.

Even worse, Price has received a Bennelong Medal, which was also awarded to Mal Brough. What a load of crap – following that line of thinking all Nobel Peace Prize winners are tainted because Yasser Arafat was a recipient.

Brull's transparent smears and misleading characterisations should not be paid for and published by Australia's national broadcaster.

I wonder if Jonathan Green reads the comments or just counts them. If the former then the conclusion drawn would be that most of the website's customers think this guy is a ridiculous joke. If the latter the you'd think this guy draws a crowd so we better get more material from him.

And poor Alene Composta killed herself because she couldn't get published on The drum.

There is no justice!
