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.

Paradigm Progressive pitch

For around four weeks before Christmas – at least, it seemed that long – Facebook people were treated to a pitch for a ‘new progressive party that was transparent, open and easy to join’ – the usual rhetoric of the left. Those that have long observed ‘progressive’ (meaning hard-left) parties know that they are anything but simple, transparent and open. They are usually full of frauds with an abundance of tricks to fool the gullible.

The pitcher did not identify himself, but like the good collectivist he obviously is, he identified his political group: Australian Progressive Media. One wonders whether that is the name of the progressive party he is pitching for, or the name of an media organization – not that it matters to the job at hand.

It is an unfortunate irony that the pitcher presents a paradigm image of the hard-left activist. The hard-left activist is usually male, around thirty, unshaven, short hair, and dishevelled with a sweaty unwashed look. He is a fanatic, totally feminized and homosexualised with testosterone levels at a frightening low.

His basic thesis is that the Australian Labor Party and the hard-left Greens have had their day. Australians, most of whom, he asserts, entertain progressive ideas, are crying out for a new progressive party to take the country out of the do-nothing decaying world of the conservatives and lead it into a glorious future where climate change, sustainability, blah, blah, blah are the central concern of government. All is needed is for the people to organized themselves and to choose able leaders which, he implies, they are yet to do. It is an old story with the usual dodgy message.

But we should take this feminised, homosexualised radical seriously. The left are terrific organizers and manipulators. That’s the reason they have, working outside the official democratic processes, captured the major institutions of the country and can cancel their opponents at will. The public service, secondary and tertiary education, the media, and (unbelievably) many corporations are in the hands of the left. It is only in government that conservatives can exercise power – for now. Who knows how long they can last against a traitor class that continues its effective program of subversion.

Has the Owl of Minerva taken flight?

Professor Sheldon’s description of the collapse of the political order in America applies just as much to Australia. The disgusting cultural self-loathing of the dominant political class on display on Australia Day (26 January) is enough to fill ordinary Australians with despair. If the Owl of Minerva does represent wisdom, knowledge and thought, she has certainly taken flight out of Australia.

The Owl of Minerva and the Night of America

Professor Garrett Ward Sheldon, Gen Z Conservative

The German philosopher Hegel famously said of political history “The Owl of Minerva takes Flight at Dusk.”

From Greek mythology, this Owl represented Wisdom, Knowledge, Thought, the Ideology of a Social System. When that political order was finished, about to end, its Thought System had reached its zenith. The Ideology justifying an era reached full development just as that order collapsed.

The thought system of the seemingly predominant order of Liberalism, Globalism, Radicalism now seems predominant. It has just established total power in the government by means of manipulation and intrigue, corruption and censorship. But these are not methods of a young, strong, healthy regime, but of an old, weak, desperate, dying system. Medieval ideology and “show” reached its zenith just as feudalism, monarchy, and the Divine Right of Kings collapsed and was supplanted by industry, trade, and republican government.

          The triumph of Democratic Globalism and its Ideology of Diversity, Perversity, and Relativism ascends just as a new system of technology, living and working, more compatible with traditional American ideals of individualism with community, freedom, and rights (see my book, THE POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY OF THOMAS JEFFERSON) emerges.

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.

Aboriginal woman takes us behind the rhetoric

Aboriginal woman pens powerful letter to divisive Australians

Caldron Pool, 19 January 2018

Jacinta Price has shared a remarkable letter she received from “a true survivour and the kind of Aboriginal woman our leaders need to listen to, especially [former] Greens Leader Di Natale.” [Marxist Adam Bandt is now Greens leader.]

I want to share this letter sent to me by a woman I regard as a sister. She is a true survivor and the kind of Aboriginal woman our leaders need to listen to, especially Greens Leader Di Natale!! Hear her words and please share her story! –

I’ve spent an hour trying to figure out how to start this letter and there’s no easy or good way to start it, I can’t pretty it up and I can’t be sensitive because I’m just so angry.

Over the last few days we have seen The Greens party cause a huge division between us, Indigenous pitted against Indigenous, Black against whites in what I can say is some of the most vile and racist hate speech I’ve ever seen, those defending the Greens have played right into their hands like the puppets you are, you think you’re smart but you’re not. Have you ever read the story of The Pied piper? The Greens are the piper and you’re the rats.

I see so much screaming and crying over the date, the 26th of January, the national day of Australia, Australia Day but not the correct date of the first fleet arriving, more fool you. So foolish to believe that the people crying for changing the date actually care about you? They don’t care about you! They care about division, widening the gap not closing it, a fool is easily parted from his family.

Working towards a system of apartheid

This is the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s mayor. Just elected she has not wasted any time in imposing her far-left green agenda on the unsuspecting people of the Mornington Peninsula of whom a large proportion are retired people, people who have absolutely no affinity with her mangled leftist views. Despi O’Connor has emptied herself of her Australian culture and in its place she has stuffed a reinvented and in some degree a fabricated version of Indigenous culture and history. The Mornington Peninsula Shire is yet another municipality the Green Left have taken without giving any indication beforehand of what they stood for. Despi and her council mates are for everyone except old Australians, those conscious of what Australia has achieved since 26 January 1788.

YOUTUBE VIDEO REMOVED

POSTSCRIPT:
There are some very sensitive people over there at Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. The Green far-left are true to style. Blot out anything that deviates from their tiresome leftist narrative. Despi does not want her propaganda exposed to the well-earned criticism on youtube, does she? So, like the fervent little collectivist she is, she removed it. But the video is still on the council’s website HERE, at least until she finds out unwelcome eyes can still view it.

The Rise of Traditionalists?

Conservatives, you would think, could not be blamed for despairing over the defeat of Donald Trump followed by an almighty beat-up of the ‘sedition’ and ‘insurrection’ committed on Washington by the president’s legion of ‘fascist’ followers: Despair because a genuine conservative and defender of traditional Christian society was defeated in a highly questionable election (the circumstantial evidence of rigging is massive), and despair because the leftist media is peddling a narrative they know, as well as we, is a shameless fantasy. Videos by Ben Shapiro and Rudy Giuliano’s January 6th another frame up show what an unconscionable scam it all is. Indeed, the left seem once again to have taken all before it. But a popular youtuber in Delaware, Steve Turley, has a different view. In fact, he is optimistic the globalists and liberal elites are in retreat and populist parties and ordinary people hungering for traditional ways are in ascendance. He explains in the interview below.

The Rise of Traditionalists in a ‘Network Society’

Ray McCoy, American Greatness, 18 December 2020

Thanks to social media many leading commentators have built their foundations on organic growth through those platforms rather than in the traditional way. While many of these platforms are home to the denizens of the ultra-progressive postmodernist Left, traditionalists have also thrived on these same platforms and are even striking out with new ones (alt-tech). This parallels the rise of a new Right, the “nationalist populist right.” 

One of the most insightful commentators on this phenomenon is Steve Turley, a writer, classical teacher and musician from Newark, Delaware. Through his video channel on YouTube (his video updates are approaching 200 million views) and his podcast (currently ranked 11th in the “Daily News” category) Turley’s optimistic message and ability to describe the goals both of populism and of its opponents make him a go-to source for information about these world-changing events. 

As the world is embroiled in tumultuous debates over globalism, immigration, and rising political unrest, Turley’s approach may just as easily move to describe the Hindutva revolution happening in India under Narendra Modi as it does to the rise of Christian alternative schooling in Montana. To get a better grasp on some of the issues confronting not just the American political system but also the world, I wrote to Turley to seek his answers to those, as well as to discover how he believes technology is affecting all of these concerns.

The MARXIST LEFT ARE EXPLOITING THE ACTIONS OF A MINORITY

As soon as I heard news report of the riotous mob who tried to storm the government buildings in Washington, I knew two things. The mob responsible for the riot was an infinitesimal part of the 74 million conservative people who voted for President Trump. They were a minority of the people collected in Washington to protest the election result. It is totally against the thoughts, values and inclination of conservatives to resort to violence, to try to tear down established systems.

That is in sharp contrast to the Marxist left whose main tool of political action is violence and disruption. The BLM Marxist riots in America during 2020 were far greater, far more violent, far more destructive, and supported by many in the Democratic Party.

Second, the left would go all out to exploit the limited riot and the small number of rioters to disqualify and delegitimize anyone who voted for President Trump, indeed, who showed any support at all for the president.

A number of conservatives in America have already posted videos analyzing and predicting the left’s response. The most comprehensive and most powerful for me is BEN SHAPIRIO’s video WELCOME TO THE PURGE. Watch and wait to see how much he gets right in the coming months.

Reconciliation is giving in to the separatists

We have known it for years. When the Marxists say they are all for peace and reconciliation, they mean peace and reconciliation on their terms. No compromise. Those who reject the Marxist agenda are subject to the usual abuse, slander, and disqualification. Prime Minister Morrison should have known that changing one word in the anthem would make no difference to those separatists who look on themselves as a superior caste.

Anthem change opens floodgates for activists.

Advance, January 11, 2021

As Advance has said for years, if you give the left an inch, they’ll take a mile.

When the clock struck midnight on New Year’s eve, Prime Minister Scott Morrison made the executive decision to change our national anthem.

In an attempt to appease the left and their Indigenous allies, ScoMo changed the line “for we are young and free” to “for we are one and free”.

Although this gesture aims to recognise that Australian Aboriginals lived here for thousands of years, it fails to address the suffering endured by many in our rural Indigenous communities and has done the very opposite of appeasing the activists.

Instead, the anthem change has empowered those who hate our anthem and opened the floodgates for those who wish to change it more.

The most vocal of these is Indigenous boxing great Anthony Mundine, who blasted the lyric change, claiming it “ain’t good enough”.

He argues “one word ain’t gonna change the core meaning of a song” and that “it’s always gonna be a white supremacy song until the whole song is rewritten.”

Mundine isn’t alone.
