Merry Christmas

Thank-you for your messages of encouragement during the past year. It is a great honour to hear about my columns being read at your breakfast tables, on the way to work, or stuck to the kitchen fridge for the kids to read when they get home from school. On one occasion, a fellow cross with one of my columns said it had caused sparks to fly when his better half decided it was her favourite!

While I have received letters of thanks and fine humour throughout 2017, many have written to express a sense of despondency about the state of politics and world affairs. In my columns for The Australian I chose to write about the big battles facing the free world such as the persecution of Christians, the rise of international jihad, the problem with value-free centrism, the violent censorship of politically incorrect thought, the abhorrent celebration of the genocidal Russian revolution and the emergence of a modern anti-democratic left. However at this time of year, it’s good to let go, spend time with family and remember the message of Christmas; where there’s life, there’s hope.

Thank-you for giving me hope during 2017 with your comments online, your letters, emails and enthusiasm at events where I have spoken.

I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas with my favourite carol, “O Holy Night,” sung by Nat King Cole:

  1. Happy New Year Jennifer! Where would a society be without somebody with your conviction, commitment and courage swimming against the current of your fellow journalists? Visions of Germany’s 1930’s slide to catastrophe come to mind. Thank you on behalf of my children (32 and 28), because mine and yours are our everything!

  2. Thanks Jennifer! You have a wonderful way of saying what i’m thinking, except you put it so succinctly! It’s especially such a pleasure to read articles that really challenge – when you discuss a topic I have not previously thought about. I sincerely hope you represent a growing percentage of the population in your age group and younger. You are the future of Australia; I would like to think all the years I worked weren’t in vain.
    Please keep up the good work and thank you for thinking of us.
    Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy and successful New Year.
    Julia

  3. A shining and balanced light in the media world-I will continue to follow you and greatly enjoy your work, Jennifer.

  4. Thank you Jennifer,

    To you and yours our best wishes for a Happy Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year.

    Cheers,
    Rozie & Carl

  5. Love your work Jennifer, keep it up!
    Conservatives are way too quiet for the most part … the activists of the Left are loud and forceful. We need to come together more and not be so passive and accepting of the way society is being manipulated and pushed down a Left wing black hole.
    Merry Christmas to all!

  6. Thank you Jennifer for your contributions to the conservative fight back. I alternate between a half glass full sort of guy and a half empty one when I mull over the rapid gains made by the ‘progressives’ in the last few years, this year in particular.
    Happy Christmas to you too.

  7. Dear Jennifer

    We need you to maintain your good work. So hard to overcome the lazy media serving up nonsense, and your voice helps. Hope to see more interviews as well as your must read articles.

    Thank you and best wishes for a merry Christmas.

  8. Keep up the good work Jennifer.

    You’re one of the few bright lights still out there (along with Douglas Murray, Mark Steyn, et al).

    Looking forward to your columns in 2018.

  9. Dear Jennifer

    A happy and peaceful Christmas to you and your family. We love your columns and deeply informed commentary and look forward to them each Monday in The Australian.

    Thank you for your courageous and generous contribution to Australian cultural life.

    1. Oh so nice a carol. My dear Dr, you have been exceptional in constructive criticism of this dreaded political atmosphere. These politicians (federal and state) should read the book of Mandela and spend some time on hard times then they could feel some of our pain as mortals.
      Good work Dr Oriel.
      Love your clear diction.
      Peter (Lawyer)
