Happy Australia Day!

This is not about this date or another date. It is about the legitimacy of our nation. Its about denying the birthright of our children and the denigration of all and everything that made Australia great.

Typical ABC claptrap. Don’t waste your time!

let’s not be too superior or judgmental. Australia Day, of course, should be an entirely inclusive and uniting occasion offering alternative activities to anyone not inclined to rejoice.

Attacks on Australia Day reject our history

Jacinta Nampijinpa Price, Herald Sun January 25, 2018

The push to change the date of Australia Day has become more contentious as it engulfs our nation in debate during the lead-up to the occasion. The “change” urgers claim January 26 marks the beginning of colonisation and genocide and is hurtful for Indigenous Australians. But that is shallow, meaningless, emotional rhetoric that does not represent the view of all Aboriginal people.

It is high time we rejected the myth that all we blackfellas think and feel the same. Peddling that myth silences the majority of us who hold different views from the enshrined “Aboriginal viewpoint”.

People such as Lynda Burney and Jackie Huggins have told you that the celebration of Australia Day causes us all great pain. Well, I have lived and worked all of my life in the far north, in Darwin and Alice Springs and in remote communities. I have never heard anybody talk of the pain of Australia Day.

Maybe there are some people, but everybody I know celebrates the day with enjoyment and pride. Perhaps all of this agony only happens in southern cities.

Let’s be honest about where the argument to change the date comes from: a place of resentment, anger and now hate. The vitriol that has been directed at me, as an Aboriginal woman, for voicing my opinion and for encouraging a healthier way of thinking, has been far, far worse then any alleged racist sentiment claimed to come from the celebration of Australia Day.

Is changing the date some kind of quick fix to obscure the failure to solve our real problems? Symbolic acts have no meaningful impact on Australia’s most marginalised, so why then are so many so happy to invest vast amounts of energy into a meaningless symbolic act?

It is a pathetic attempt at appeasing resentment, anger and white guilt.

And it will do what? Will it take pain away, placate anger, assuage guilt? Will it save the lives of those we keep burying before their time? Will it get one illiterate child to school? Will it get one pregnant mum to stop drinking grog to avoid inflicting a lifetime of disability on an unborn baby? Will it keep one angry young man out of jail? Will it prevent the bashing of one girlfriend or wife — or even the sexual assault of one child? I can’t see how.

This is a cop out — and a divisive one at that. Why don’t any of those shouting about the painfulness of January 26 ever mention the pain and suffering caused by the abuse of children, the violence against women and the incarceration of young men taught that law breaking is legitimate rebellion? This divisive gesture produces the following:

RESENTFUL Aboriginals who expect other Australians to change to appease their irrational anger;

WHITE Australians who accept the lie that all we blackfellas think the same and believe they are doing something meaningful to improve our lives;

ABORIGINAL people like me who know that symbolic acts do not make a single difference and who prefer that our people find genuine freedom and empowerment to initiate meaningful and lasting change;

WHITE Australians who have had a gutful of being made to feel guilty for the actions of others and who genuinely want our problems addressed but understand it takes real action on our part for that to happen;

On January 26, 1949, we all became Australian citizens — including Aboriginal Australians — when the Nationality and Citizenship Act came into force. Neither my white or my black grandparents were citizens before that. Aboriginal Australians, including my grandparents, were still denied some citizenship rights after that through state legislation, but that had all gone before I was born.

Ian Macfarlane tells us that he wouldn’t celebrate the day of the battle of Culloden because of his Scottish heritage. There were Scots on both sides of that battle. It could be argued that it was a victory of the Protestant Lowlanders over the Catholic Highlands as much as a victory of a German king over everybody.

History is always complicated. My husband is a Scot. I understand their struggle, which began centuries before 1788. I understand their resentment towards the Sassenachs and we love to see them lose the Ashes. But it isn’t the imperial English celebrating Australia Day, it is all of us, no matter where we came from.

St Andrew’s Day in Scotland and St Patrick’s Day in Ireland celebrate the destruction of the indigenous culture and society of the pagan Picts and Gaels by “modernising” and imperialist Christians.

Torres Strait Islanders celebrate the “Coming of the Light”, the day the missionaries arrived to bring peace between their communities and protection from violent whites. The missionaries did the same thing for us in Central Australia.

They worked hard to stop blackfellas from killing each other and were the only ones to organise themselves to defend my people from frontier violence and exploitation. All of this brought profound changes, some of them for the good, others not so beneficial.

The protesters want us to deny all of this in our own history. They have no right to do that.

There seems no end to the need for trigger warnings in the leftist utopia but I never thought the rock ‘n’ roll industry would find one of their own in middle age. Proving that virtue signalling isn’t just for shovel-bearded hipsters and the hair-shirt brigade, some of our most privileged (and washed up) music industry identities got their designer knickers in a knot. Their outrage was prompted by my creati…

    (The Magnificent) Australia Day
    … Marks the day in history when Australia was created
    (and Aborigines saved from islam genocide)
    (and (future) Feministas saved from rape by islams … being every persons free choice is preserved)
    … How can you “move” this day to another day where these significant events did not happen !!!

    https://www.sbs.com.au/nitv/article/2017/01/18/10-things-you-should-know-about-january-26

    1. You should know that… The First Fleet didn’t actually arrive on the 26 January
    The First Fleet, the group of ships which left England to create a penal colony abroad, actually arrived in Botany Bay somewhere between the 18th and 20th of January 1788.

    However, settlers decided to relocate on the 25th of January in the hope of finding a more suitable area to construct their colony. They traveled to Sydney Cove and the next morning, on the 26th, Sir Arthur Phillip and a small entourage of marines and officers claimed the land in the name of King George III.

    2. You should know that… The first sanctioned marriage between an Aboriginal person and a convict occurred on the 26 January 1824

    3. You should know… What Henry Parkes said about the 1888 Centenary celebrations

    4. You should know that… A significant Aboriginal protest in 1938 rallied against Australia Day and called it the ‘Day of Mourning’

    5. You should know that… The 150th Anniversary, Aboriginal people were forced to participate in a reenactment of the landing of the First Fleet

    6. You should know that… The Aboriginal Tent Embassy was established on the 26 January 1972

    7. You should know that… On 26 January 1988, more than 40,000 people staged the largest march in Sydney since the 1970s Vietnam Moratorium demonstrations

    8. You should know about… Archie Roach’s 1988 protest song, ‘Keep your handouts, give us back our land”

    9. You should know that… Australia Day was not consistently celebrated on 26 January as a public holiday in all states and territories until 1994

    10. You should that… The triple j Hottest 100 wasn’t always on the 26 January

    11. You should know … Australia’s continuation as a stable and prosperous and peaceful nation requires the following
    • incarceration of the (traitor/seditioner/subversive) islamophile political cultural marxist/multiculturalist who aid and assist the invading islams and the diversifing criminal African tribal savages and replaced with people who genuinely have Australian’s best interests at heart !!
    • immediately stopping invader islam immigration and expel the islams already here !!
    • immediately stopping diversifier (aka kill whitey) criminal African tribal savage immigration along with expulsion of those already here !!!

  2. Observe: A lot of anti Australia Day grizzlers like Briggs are venting their vitriol via the accoutrements of the Western democracy in which they live yet so despise.
