Magda is in the news again for complaining about how she’s so fat. They’re making some new series further normalising unhealthy behaviour, so she’s a natural go to. Feel free to skim or completely skip the following cut and paste:
Comedian Magda Szubanski isn’t shy about calling out abuse and discrimination where she sees it — but it wasn’t always that way. Ahead of the release of her new series, Magda’s Big National Health Check, she reflects on how she’s been impacted by weight stigma, diet culture and what happens when you speak up.
From the moment I started to put on a little bit of weight, my parents were on me about it. And, God bless them, not in a kind way.
All through my teen years, I was yelled at in the street. People wouldn’t always say it out loud — although they do that, too — but it can just be the sort of contemptuous way that you’re treated, like you’re seen as a kind of non-person.
I remember years ago, when I wasn’t even that overweight, I was on a plane with Gina Riley [who played Kim Craig in Kath and Kim] heading to Edinburgh Festival. I asked the flight attendant if I could have some more food and she just looked at me with utter contempt and said: “really, are you sure?”
Gina and I just looked at each other and laughed, it was so ridiculous.
Did you skip that too? It’s 0% personal responsibility, 100% complaining. I have included it simply to reinforce the point I want to make at the conclusion of this article. To first summarise my two major criticisms of Magda:
- Everybody now hates her because she took money to push the dangerous Covid “vaccine” on ordinary Australians which has led to a spike in the death rate.
- Her characterised, typified by the netball playing character from Kath and Kim, are intended as subversions of the suburban Anglo majority.
Aussies are quite capable of taking the piss out of ourselves and when we do, or used to do, it was done from a perspective of deep affection. In all the interviews I have ever been able to stomach of Magda, it is clear that she defines herself as being an immigrant/child of immigrants from non-Anglo stock. Thus her characters project her own self-hatred onto straight, thin Anglo Australians.
The fact that she has been able to make a career out of this is a sad reflection of our Marxist, anti-white and poorly labelled “arts” industry.
I provide this background because it is important in setting up this final point. Quite fittingly, as elites chucked a tantrum in the wake of Gina Rinehart walking away from a sponsorship deal with Netball Australia due to a racism row, an old skit of Magda’s apparently went “viral”:
When the Lying Press tells us something has gone viral on the internet, what they mean is that half a dozen ABC employees have shared it on Facebook. What Big Tech and the Lying Press claims is “trending” is an inversion of reality, designed to make their fringe extreme left university marxism appear mainstream.
I haven’t watched the skit and don’t intend to. The Lying Press highlighted it because they were desperate to make it look like everybody was attacking Gina Rinehart, when in fact most Aussies were cheering her on for standing up to political correctness gone mad.
But the thing is, there is a reason why the Magda skit on Gina Rinehart works. It’s because Gina is fat, and Magda is fat. It’s probably not funny, but if Magda wasn’t fat, the skit would not work at all.
What this means is that Magda was actually fat shaming Gina.
Just as being black won’t save you from Lying Press defamation if you point out that jews have a disproportionate level of power due to their in-group preferential behaviour, being fat won’t save you from Lying Press fat shaming if you challenge the woke agenda.
