M. Lee is a Melbournian of Chinese heritage who first came to Australia with her family, after fleeing Vietnam as a political refugee in the early 80’s. Like many of her fellow former refugees from Vietnam, the US’s sudden and bloody withdrawal of Afghanistan led to much condemnation from world leaders due to the way in which they left a war they felt they could not win. Triggered by the similarities between the fall of Saigon and the fall of Kabul, this article was her immediate response.

Yes – Leigh Sales and Co in the corporate media – there are misogynistic and weirdo trolls lurking on social media but a sense of moral righteousness is completely lost when you’ve been busy trolling the public with hateful, racist bullies and politically-biased coverage that upholds the status quo for years, writes Kieran Butler.
