One has to look for the non-ideological municipal councils across Australia to discover just how few have not lost their reason and subscribed to wokism. That would be easier than counting those who have been hijacked by the extreme Green-Left. The only question about the hijacking is the degree of lunacy.
When it comes to lunacy, Stonnington Council in an affluent area of inner Melbourne, must take the prize. They truly are what Tony Abbott called a bunch of millionaire lefties, turning on the people they shake down to gather their funds.
I thought the Mornington Peninsula Council was the champion of green-left wokist lunacy, but Stonnington trumps Mornington.
Wokist green-left councils have a range of crackpot policies that usually go against the wishes of the majority. Mornington shines in this respect. The population of the Mornington Peninsula consists of mostly retirees. It is fact that people of retiring age have no interest in leftist policies in general let alone the crackpottery of the woke class.
But do you think the Mornington Peninsula Council takes notice of the many complaints about their green-left wokist policies. Not on your life. That juvenile bunch of councillors simply give their finger to the oldies – in reality telling them to go and get stuffed. They won’t be changing anything, they have declare.
As I say, the Stonnington councillors have this Christmas season taken wokist action that defies all belief – and puts wokist Mornington to shame. Wokist unreason has so overtaken them that they made up and had printed (obviously at great cost) the street greeting in the photo below. They just could not bring themselves to wish the people of Stonnington a Merry Christmas.
Most normal people would be deeply embarrassed to be found guilty of such idiocy. Not the wokist/green left. Ideology will always overcome feelings of stupidity.
Of course, we are by now familiar with the justification of such imbecility: inclusiveness. They don’t want people of other cultures feeling left out. A little thought about the argument would show it is contradictory.
Christmas is a centuries old European tradition. Cutting it up in the manner below is to wipe it out. The sign below is an insult to most Australians. Second, to desecrate the tradition of Christmas in favor of other traditions is to admit the integrity of a tradition per se. But surely it is contradictory – at least a double standard – to recognise the integrity of the traditions of foreign cultures but to deny those of Australia.
False and stupid reasoning is of no account to those governed by ideology – an ideology that is bigoted, anti-white, and anglophobic.
Local councils have served their purpose, especially now that the wokist/green left class has taken possession of them. It’s time to get rid of them.
‘Absurd woke-ism’: City of Stonnington urged to “Reinstate ‘Merry Christmas”
A group of inner-Melbourne residents have slammed their local council for removing the word “Christmas” from its holiday messaging.

A small group of inner-east Melbourne residents have slammed their local council for removing the word “Christmas” from its “inclusive” holiday messaging.
This year, the City of Stonnington elected to use the slogan “Make Merry” in some of its public messaging and decorations for the Christmas period.
At the time of publication, some 200 residents of the local government area, which covers some of the state’s wealthiest suburbs, including Armadale, Kooyong, Malvern, Prahran, South Yarra, Toorak and Windsor, have signed a petition demanding the municipality: “Reinstate ‘Merry Christmas.”.
“While we appreciate efforts to promote inclusivity, we believe this change may unintentionally diminish the cultural and religious significance of Christmas for many residents,” petition lead Mikhail Anossovitch wrote
Stonnington City Council has come under fire for its ‘Make Merry’ Christmas decorations
“Christmas is a time-honoured celebration, and the phrase “Merry Christmas” has long been embraced as a warm and traditional greeting.”
Ms Anossovitch said the community respected the “importance of diversity but argued the change threatened “diluting the unique cultural heritage associated with this festive season.”
“We kindly request that the local council reconsider this change and restore “Merry Christmas” on holiday signs,” she wrote.
Some of the hundreds who signed the petition also shared their thoughts on the council’s decision.
“Christmas is special and does not offend any of my colleagues and friends of other faiths – it only seems to offend atheists in the main so why should they have such disproportionate influence over these decisions,” one wrote.
