The truth about Aboriginal disadvantage

Loudest voices come from the cities, not the bush

Jacinta Nampijinpa, The Australian, 5 January 2021

Despite Closing the Gap, there remains a seven-year difference in life expectancy between the cities and the bush.
Despite Closing the Gap, there remains a seven-year difference in life expectancy between the cities and the bush.

Our political leaders don’t live in the bush, they live in cities. Heads of Aboriginal organisations don’t live in the bush, they live in cities. Policymakers don’t live in the bush, they live in cities. Those with the loudest voices pushing to change the date of Australia Day — or for a voice to parliament — don’t live in the bush, they live in the cities.

The cities are where the activists and their credulous supporters live among some of Australia’s most privileged. The cities are where the “progressive” media lives and the frame through which it views and reports to the rest of Australia. The cities are where the universities indoctrinate with much of their politically correct ideological teachings, delivered by academics who’ve never lived in remote Indigenous communities yet who bombard parliamentary inquiries and grant application channels with recommendations that fail to even grasp Indigenous disadvantage.

This is part of the reason decades of attempts to address Indigenous disadvantage have fallen short of accomplishing the outcomes needed to fix the ongoing raft of problems. Indigenous Australians in regional remote areas still face dire circumstances.

Who is the traitor class?

In her article in today’s Australian about the problems of a proposed separate indigenous voice, Janet Albrechtson gives a hint of who some of them are. The opening paragraphs:

Beware the pile-on over an Indigenous voice to parliament. Few things are as predictable as a gaggle of constitutional lawyers in search of new constitutional provisions to litigate about.

No sooner had the voice co-design groups called for submissions into the voice proposed by the federal government to be set down by an act of parliament than 43 senior lawyers, academics and public law experts lodged their submission saying this was not enough. The group, including many luminaries of left-wing legal activism, maintain the proposal cannot work unless the body gets constitutional protection.

I do not acknowledge the Aboriginal flag

The so-called Aboriginal flag, whatever its origins, has long been hijacked by the far-left as a formidable weapon in their Marxist agenda, which is to wipe out all vestiges of European (capitalist) society. That’s the reason I do not recognize it. How many Australians of Aboriginal ancestry (AOAAs) realize they are just a tool in the radicals’ agenda? The Aboriginal flag is the opposite of a tool of reconciliation.

What are the origins of the so-called Aboriginal flag? Why has this commercially designed flag, now hijacked by the extreme left, been given official status – which status I refuse to acknowledge? Who gave it official status?

The brief answer is that the flag was designed by a graphic artist who holds the copyright and exacts a payment for its use. So the flag that has no popular ratification is a political leftist flag that pours money into a few private pockets.

The flag was given official status as the Aboriginal flag in 1995. IT IS NOT A NATIONAL FLAG. But that does not answer the question of who in government took it upon themselves to give the flag official status without going to the people. More information below.

The Suzanne Venker Show

Feminism’s harshest critics are now women. When Women’s Liberation (as it was then called) broke on us in the late 1960s, I, like most, could think of no objection to the equal treatment of women in the workplace. In those days, the issue was ostensibly about equal pay and equal opportunity. By 1975, I had changed my mind about feminism, at least about the feminism the activists promoted and forced on us. It was feminism underwritten by Marxist theory.

It was no longer about a fundamental equality, an equal dignity, and equal opportunity. Now men and women were claimed to be the same. To suggest differences was an outrage and an injustice. Equality of outcome had replaced equality of opportunity.

To me this was unfair and a denial of the essential observable differences between men and women. Feminism was fast destroying the natural relationship between men and women, I often said, and still claim. The result would be misery for many men and women. I have aired my criticism from that time, on occasions making myself very unpopular.

In recent years, I have stopped my personal criticism because a growing group of very articulate women are savaging the feminists far better, and with more insight, than I could do. Many claim that women more than men suffer in the destruction of the natural relationship between men and women.

There are long established tabs on this website about the issues of feminism and men and women. One only need to click on the drop-down menu to find them. My two favourite critics are Janice Fiamengo and Suzanne Venker. The links are there. Below are links to four of Venker’s recent youtube videos.

MAO’S CULTURAL REVOLUTION: AMERICA’S BIGGEST IMPORT FROM CHINA

Professor Garrett Ward Sheldon, Gen Z Conservative, 11 January 2021

The American Left’s Cultural Revolution

To understand the now pervasive influence of China on the United States, it is useful to see its predecessor: Mao’s Chinese Cultural Revolution.

About twenty years after the Communist Revolution of 1949, Chairman Mao realized that the mere totalitarian State control of the economy, schools, and media in China had not transformed the society and created “The New World.” Old customs and manners, shrines, beliefs, and even dress and art, held back the total radical change he envisioned.

So, in the late 1960s, under Mao’s leadership, the lower orders of peasants and workers, the terrorist military rampages of The Red Guard, and massive propagandists set about to completely alter China. Besides killing an estimated 30 million of its own citizens, this movement destroyed the education system, leveled many cities, tore down ancient shrines and statues, and tortured, imprisoned, and executed anyone associated with old Chinese institutions and practices.

At one point, anyone who wore eyeglasses was arrested, for they showed they could read and were therefore tied to the past.

Climate change – hoax or not?

Some of us are old enough to remember the excitement 50 years ago about the coming Ice Age. Scientists were sure of it. The world was about to freeze over, devastating the world’s population. George Christensen posted the following on his FB page:

Ten climate alarmist predictions that did NOT come true in 2020:

1. Average global temperatures were supposed to be up 3 degrees Celsius in 2020. Didn’t happen.

2. Carbon dioxide emissions were supposed to have doubled by 2020. Didn’t happen.

3. We were told to follow Communist China as they were going to reduce gases by 40 to 45 per cent below 2005 figures in 2020. Didn’t happen. (Instead, they increased emissions by 168 per cent above 2005 figures.)

4. Al Gore said there would be no snow on Kilimanjaro by 2020. Didn’t happen. There’s still lots of snow up there.

5. The sea level around Florida was supposed to rise by two feet in 2020. Didn’t happen.

6. There were claims that children wouldn’t know what snow was in 2020. Didn’t happen. It’s snowing in many winter countries in the northern hemisphere and it snowed in Australia earlier this year.

7. They said Pacific Island economies would be devastated by climate change in 2020, particularly Tuvalu and Kirabati. Didn’t happen. Both countries grew their economies.

8. Climate change was supposed to cause nuclear war due to fighting over scarce resources. Didn’t happen.

9. They reckoned the Arctic would be ice free in 2020. Didn’t happen. There is 3.9 million square kilometres of ice in the Arctic.

10. They said glaciers would be gone at Glacier National Park in the USA. Didn’t happen.

Who is killing relationships?

Bettina Arndt and Suzanne Venker think women are killing relationships. They give their reason in this video: Woke women are killing relationships. They begin with a funny story to illustrate their fundamental thesis. There are more Suzanne Venker videos under the tab ‘Coaching women’ (under Men and Women) and a lot more on youtube. See Venker’s blog. See also Janice Fiamengo’s videos under the tab ‘Feminism’.

Are we a racist and patriarchal society?

A Peculiar Kind of Racist Patriarchy

Rav Arora, Quillette, 23 December 2020

We are frequently told by commentators and theorists on the progressive and liberal Left that we live in a systemically racist and patriarchal society. The belief that Western societies privilege white men and oppress people of color, women, and LGBT citizens is especially popular within academic institutions, legacy media, the entertainment industry, and even sports. However, newly released statistics from the US Department of Labor for the third quarter of 2020 undermine this narrative. Asian women have now surpassed white men in weekly earnings. That trend has been consistent throughout this past year—an unprecedented outcome. Full-time working Asian women earned $1,224 in median weekly earnings in the third quarter of this year compared to $1,122 earned by their white male counterparts. Furthermore, the income gap between both black and Latino men and Asian women is wider than it has ever been. The income gap between white and black women, meanwhile, is much narrower than the gap between their male counterparts.

These outcomes cannot exist in a society suffused with misogyny and racism. As confounding to conventional progressive wisdom as these new figures appear to be, copious research finds that ethnic minorities and women frequently eclipse their white and male counterparts, even when these identities intersect. Several ethnic minority groups consistently out-perform whites in a variety of categories—higher test scores, lower incarceration rates, and longer life expectancies. According to the latest data from the US Census Bureau, over the 12 months covered by the survey, the median household incomes of Syrian Americans ($74,047), Korean Americans ($76,674), Indonesian Americans ($93,501), Taiwanese Americans ($102,405), and Filipino Americans ($100,273) are all significantly higher than that of whites ($69,823). The report also finds substantial economic gains among minority groups. Valerie Wilson at the Economic Policy Institute reports that from 2018 to 2019, Asian and black households had the highest rate of median income growth (10.6 percent and 8.5 percent, respectively) of all main racial groups (although she cautions that overall disparities remain “largely unchanged”). On a longitudinal scale, Hispanics, not whites, had the highest income growth in 2019 relative to the start of the Great Recession in 2007 (although many of these gains have been reversed by the pandemic).

Daniel Andrews: The Marxist nightmare continues

Daniel Andrews queer theory tyranny

Mark Powell

While Christian Porter has delayed the introduction of the Religious Freedom Bill until 2021 due to COVID-19, Daniel Andrews is making hay while the sun shines. 

His Attorney-General, Jill Hennessy, has introduced the Change or Suppression (Conversion) Practices Prohibition Bill 2020 into state parliament, and it has already passed the first reading. 

There are a plethora of problems associated with this particular Bill — but if you think they only affect Victorians, you’d be wrong. Just consider this section from one of the Bill’s many addendums:

AMERICA: Awaiting a Replay of the French Revolution?

Professor Garrett Ward Sheldon makes a chilling – and close – comparison with the madness that nearly destroyed France in 1789.

Reflections on the Revolution in America

By Garret Ward Sheldon

Gen Z Conservative, 11 November 2020

When the conservative philosopher Edmund Burke wrote REFLECTIONS ON THE FRENCH REVOLUTION he described, with horror, the total destruction of the ancient regime in France, and the replacement of this elegant civilized (if imperfect) Medieval Country with a barbaric, mad, chaotic Reign of Terror.

If the Democrats prevail in this election, America will suffer a similar fate: Obamaism on steroids: floods of illegal immigrantsDrug Cartel money and destruction; human slave trafficking; return to Globalist Control with China, EU, and Iran. Total censorship by Big Tech, politicized and weaponized federal agencies and education. Use of medicinal lockdowns to control the population. Persecution of the Church, abortion, infanticide, euthanasia of the sick and elderly. Every perversion known to humanity: trans, pedophilia, sadism. 

The end of America as ever known, as the French Revolution was of old France. 

Of course, this is a “worse case scenario.” Personally, I think the voter fraud that would bring this disaster will be exposed and corrected. Trumpism with four more years will practically drain the entire Swamp, American values and practice (Faith, Family, Country, Work, Prosperity) will largely return, by the Grace of God. 

But, even if the Biden/Harris regime assumes power, realities may blunt its effort. 

First, things have changed in the four years of Trump. GENZ conservatives reflect this. At least half the country inspired to real American truths by four years of sanity and success.
