Australian Politics

Assimilate but GTFO – of our billboards

two-little-girls

Tonight it really hit home. It hit home that the Australian people are more interested in trashing the fair go, than holding it dear as a true Australian value. Once the fair go is well and truly gone; we, as a people are nothing.

Two Girls, Two Flags,Two Tweets

As I browsed Twitter, two tweets had a huge impact on me tonight. The first was from Sam Dastyari. There was a real sadness in Sam’s tweet. A sadness that really encompassed that this insidious scourge of populist racism, led very vocally by Pauline Hanson, is actively destroying our country from the inside out.

The human face of the racial attacks, slurs, anger and hatred from so many “Hansonites” in the last 24 hours were two gorgeous, smiling little girls. This. Must. Stop.

The second tweet was from Josh Butler, Associate Editor of Huffington Post Australia. His tweet really drove home not only the callous behaviour of the last 24 hours; but the stupidity behind it. Is this what we have become? 

Why this really hit home

The reason Sam and Josh’s tweets really hit home is because they wrap up very neatly in a nice little ball how racist ranting has become the new power drug for so many. It hit home because the feeling of elation and superiority more and more Australians are feeling from this negative, insidious activism, led by Hanson (and encouraged by the Media reporting her every word); is now overwhelming us. It is dividing us. It is destroying us.

This hateful rhetoric takes precedence over everything. Over actually giving a damn about the damage, stigma and pain these harmful words and actions are doing to other human beings. Now it doesn’t even matter if the target is just a sweet, innocent, little kid. 

It didn’t matter if the loud screams and anger were aimed at these little girls. It just did not matter.

Did the people screaming in anger and making hateful comments and praising Pauline Hanson ‘to fight against this’ really care how these two little girls felt about the harmful words inflicted upon them? Or if they felt totally destroyed when the Billboard was taken down? 

The honest answer is, “No they did not”

The honest and even more terrifying answer is “No, in the name of Pauline Hanson, they would do it all again tomorrow.”

Our Racism now knows no bounds

This Hansonesque Racism, which is taking off like wildfire, now knows no bounds. Anyone is now fair game. As we can see from today – anyone. 

Just like all little girls, the two girls in this photo were most likely super excited about being on a big billboard. Their Mum and Dad would have been so proud of how beautiful they looked on such a huge poster and no doubt family and friends were delighted to just know them and how proud everyone is of them. Drive-by’s and selfies galore would have been had.

Yesterday, dedicated Hansonites destroyed that overwhelming joy for two little girls.

Due to the racist outrage and fears of safety by the advertiser and threats to the company, the billboard has now been removed.

There is a growing number of Hanson worshipping Australians who see someone in a religious garb as sub-human and they gladly treat them as such and celebrate such joy from another person’s pain and anguish.

The Hansonites don’t care about how these little girls must be feeling. These ‘Patriotic Australians of the adult variety’, actively participated in the last 24 hours in breaking the hearts of these two little girls.

Today is the day that these little girl’s have had to face the reality that they live amongst monsters. Not the BFG kind. Ugly, hateful, mean, nasty, scary monsters who worship a god with a really poor vocabulary, no positive ideas, an ever increasingly prominent narcissistic personality, an over-zealous ambition, with flaming red hair and a nasally twang. How blasphemous of them!

I want to know the names of these little girls so I can ask these Hansonites, if they actually care how [Name] and [Name] felt when the billboard was taken down?

Brave and Patriotic

How much did the Hansonites laugh because these little girls may go to bed tonight crying until they can’t cry anymore?

Did these Hansonites hoot with glee that these little girls will never understand that all they did wrong was to exist as Australians?

Who are these ‘patriots’ who say they don’t deserve to?

How big and powerful do the Hansonites feel? Screaming at these little girls that they aren’t Australian enough? Although they are Australian, just like them? 

Did the rants and screams of the Hansonites make them feel more valued as members of society, because they “protected” Australia from the great harm these two little girls inflicted upon the country by being on a billboard?

How very brave and patriotic!

Hansonite Hypocrites – Is this who we have become?

The video below is so important at this point in time.  It is important because it really visualises the Hanson rhetoric. The message of how we are supposed to shame, ridicule and tear down others. We simply must force ourselves into a position of authority above ‘the targeted others’ and insist they do not belong.

This makes us “Pauline’s Australians’ who are ‘Real Australians’…..apparently.

This video, went viral and was all over social media. Australians were appalled at how this teacher built this little boy up and then tore him down in an instant.

When I read Sam’s tweet tonight, my mind immediately returned to remembering this video and I loudly exclaimed with disgust “What hypocrites we have become.”

Such compassion from Australians for this little boy. Day in day out, people screamed for the teacher to be sacked. Capslocked in anger about what they wanted to ‘do to her.’

What hypocrites we have become.

In the last 24 hours, the big brave Hansonites have metaphorically rushed that stage, pushed the teacher out of the way and ripped that mic out of that boy’s hand in disgust. Then they screamed at him:

“YOU DO NOT BELONG ON OUR STAGE!!!!”

Not only did they do that….they laughed about it and patted each other on the back if they could snatch the mic in a particularly cruel or nasty manner. They cheered if they reached the epic status of making the kid cry really loud. This meant they were ‘true patriots dedicated to Pauline’s Australia.’ 

That is what Hanson and her pack of self-righteous “patriots” have done to these girls yesterday.  

Hanson and her patriots’ message to these girls is that they better bloody assimilate, but seriously GTFO of our billboards. Don’t you dare come to the barbie cos we will damn well make sure we smother it with bacon.  We do this because we think it makes you uncomfortable. Making you feel uncomfortable, makes us feel brave.

I am, you are, we are Pauline’s Patriots.

So yeh – assimilate but GTFO! 

Is Pauline Hanson and her happy hate club slowly choking the fair go to death?

  1. It seems that the callous treatment of the next “fresh face” of “the new” group of ethnic peoples has become an entrenched tradition for the dumb and useless in our society..It started out in this post WW2. era with the Mediterranean migrants, then it was the Balkans, and the Baltic States..then the Vietnamese and other Asian “new faces” and cultures…now we move on from those familiar and contributing ethnic groups to the next ..The Middle-Eastern ethnic groups..never mind their humanity, their privacy, their cultural rights …just plough ahead with the entrenched stupidity..again, again and again…we need leadership to bring people together, NOT to divide and CRUEL!

  2. With Australia Day only 8 days away having a good look at ourselves is not a bad idea

    Since Iraq 1 and Stormin Norman`s ” Shock & Awe” Australia has been bombarded by MSM`s Weapons Of Mass Deception

    Even when Saddam said in the latter 90`s and up till the 2003 invasion that he had no WMD`s [confirmed by Australia`s Richard Butler,chief UN weapons inspector] an hate filled illegal invasion of Iraq began,fully televised

    Mass murder of Iraqi civilians ensued,war crimes were committed,the Iraqi`s morphed into the MSM Muslims with an horrific Islamist jihadist agenda

    MSM was spreading HATE against Muslims because any who follow Islam are Muslim,__ { just as any who follow Bible teachings are Christian}

    Australians saw on TV,in Newsprint and in Online Publications the media beat up of Muslim hate
    It was planned and well thought out

    When refugees began flooding in by boat from countries AUSTRALIA was directly involved in invading and occupying Murdoch`s minions began their assault on a twofold front

    Front 1 was against Rudd`s onshore treatment policy and called it an open door to the boat people policy,a people smugglers paradise according to some

    Front 2 was Labor refugee policies are the cause of drownings at sea

    Then began the HATE
    Some of these are not genuine refugees,they are ex Saddam private guard etc,they are Islamic terrorists

    Australia`s MSM continued Hate propaganda was doing it`s job

    On 19 March 2011, a multi-state NATO-led coalition began a military intervention in Libya
    Our media cheered as Libya was bombed into the stone age and Australians cheered along with them

    Who care they`re nothing but filthy Islamist terrorists just like all Muslims are was the growing consensus
    {the propaganda was working perfectly}

    And now Australia is astonished at how One Nation is polling higher than the Greens

    Hmm,how did this happen?

  3. As we once again come to Australia Day I am afraid I am less and less enthusiastic and proud about what we in Australia have become. Led by the Murdoch-controlled media which is the mouthpiece of ignorant populism we are giving so much more exposure to Hanson and her ignorant cronies who want to return the country to the 50’s when we had a White Australia policy and were frightened of the ‘yellow peril’. So many of our apathetic fellow Australians are now surrendering to big business and the so-called ‘American dream’. We are but a shadow of what we were and have lost our true Aussie identity.
