Recommended books

Socially and politically oriented Youtube channels often interview authors of books that have captured the reading public’s attention.

The books below attracted my attention because they give powerful arguments and evidence against the Woke class’s condemnation of Western Civilization.

The final two by Timothy Gordon and his wife, Stephanie, are so ‘out there’ on the fringes for most conservatives that they will not consider them. The books, however, restate age-old beliefs about men’s natural leadership and women’s role as organizer of the domestic sphere.

I intend to add to the list whenever I come across book of similar interest.

They have turned against us

Caving into the violence of the far-left ‘Aboriginal’ activists

Far-left ‘Aboriginal’ activists have continued their program of intimidation and demoralization – classic Marxist praxis. They went on a raid to destroy monuments to Australia’s colonial period which was a preface to the nation as we know it.

The statue of Captain Cook at St Kilda, the monument in Fitzroy Gardens, and the statue of Queen Victoria near the CBD were victims of the raid.

The media, including the ABC in the report below, are calling it the work of ‘vandals’ when they know very well who the perpetrators are. Indeed, a question remains how much collusion there is between the Marxists, the media (especially the ABC), and local councils who the Marxists have hijacked.

The activist thugs left various messages behind their work of intimidation: ‘Cook the colony’, ‘shame’, ‘the colony will fall’. Those messages are a continuing declaration of war against the Australian nation.

Do you think Australia’s authorities will carry the war up to those traitors and subversives? Not on your life. Some are too gutless to act; others support the treachery and subversion. They support what amounts to a political, land and cultural coup.

Far-left Jacinta Allan, Daniel-Andrews-clone and premier of Australia’s first genuine Marxist government, declared the statue of Captain Cook would be restored when the news first broke. Now, she says she is leaving it to the councils. We know what the relevant councils will do, don’t we?

It has been reported that a ‘Yarra city council officer has recommended the memorial be permanently removed due to the serious, irreparable damage and because it has “little or no significance” to the park.’ Exactly. This is the way the war will continue.

Is there nobody to defend the Australian people?

Captain Cook monument toppled in Edinburgh Gardens in Melbourne’s north, days after vandalism spree

Police are investigating after a colonial monument in Melbourne’s north was targeted by vandals, following a string of similar incidents around the city in the lead up to January 26.

A stone monument to Captain Cook at the entrance to Edinburgh Gardens in Fitzroy North was toppled and spray-painted with the words, “cook the colony”.

The monument had been the target of several acts of vandalism in recent years, with one incident in 2020 seeing the monument crossed out with white paint, with the word “shame” painted across it.

Following that incident, former Yarra Mayor Misha Coleman said that despite the continued vandalisation, there were no plans to remove the monument.

Investigations ongoing, police said

The latest incident comes after two other statues around Melbourne were the target of vandalism earlier in the week.

A statue of Queen Victoria was splashed with red paint near Melbourne’s CBD, while a statue of Captain Cook was sawn off at the ankles, toppled, and painted with the phrase, “The colony will fall”.

The incidents are presumed to be in protest against the commemoration of colonial figures in public spaces.

Police said in a statement that investigations into whether the three incidents were connected was ongoing.

“The plaque has been pushed over and sprayed with red paint,” the statement read.

“It is yet to be established when the damage took place, and the investigation is ongoing.”

Police are urging anyone with information about any of the incidents to contact Crime Stoppers.

When will the authorities protect us instead of turning against us?

Sky News has reported the desecration of the statue of Captain Cook at St Kilda. Sky News calls the desecrators vandals. But these are not vandals. They are political operatives, traitors, embedded in the Australian population. Gutless subversives acting under the cover of dark. They are at war with the majority of Australians. They are given free passage by the local authorities – the local councils.

When will someone take up the cause against these traitors?

Sky News notes that some are calling for the removal of the statue. The removal of the statue would be utter betrayal.

SKY NEWS, 25 January 2024

‘Vandals have targeted Captain Cook’s statue in Melbourne. The culprits cut the figure off its pedestal and defaced its base. The incident occurred on the eve of Australia Day. It’s one of many attacks on the monument in St Kilda, which has been previously doused in paint and sprayed in graffiti. Proposals have been made to have the statue permanently removed.’

George Floyd and BLM – all based on lies

From here in Melbourne, watching the reports of the George Floyd incident, I thought, as I have often done, here we go again.

What I saw on the bare images were policemen doing their job against a man who was resisting arrest. Derek Chauvin had his knee on Floyd’s lower neck, as it appeared from the angle of the video. It looked like a routine police manoeuvre. I clearly heard Floyd say, ‘I can’t breathe.’ If he couldn’t breathe, how could he say so distinctly, ‘I can’t breathe?’

As expected, people in high office paraded through the media, deploring the racist action of the police. As expected, people in low office – indeed, the lowest offices – took the cue and Minneapolis descended into chaos. Anarchy reigned for more than a week. George Floyd turned into a cause that flashed across the world.

But it was all based on lies.

The outstanding film below offers the proof. It also offers proof that the highest offices in western society – not just America – are filled by corrupt people, many of whom are determined to destroy everything the west has built up over the centuries. The film is on the video platform Rumble.

City of Stonnington – treachery and betrayal

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.

Jack Evans, 15 December, news.com.au

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

“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.

‘Just say NO!’

This article in Spectator Australia summarises all the major objections which make the VOICE the huge con that it is. But what I like about it most is the cover and illustration by Sarah Dudley and Ben Davis. One should copy it and pass it around. It could not be more eloquent.

*****

‘Just say No,’ was the catchphrase of Nancy Reagan back in the 1980s. The slogan was used to encourage people to stay away from drugs. It was in response to the ‘crack’ epidemic, which saw a cheap but highly addictive derivative of cocaine flooding schools and universities, not to mention the streets of major cities. The premise behind the Reagan campaign was simple: you don’t need a raft of complicated reasons or arguments against this drug. A one-word No will suffice.

The slogan could equally apply to the proposal for an Indigenous Voice to parliament, which Australians have been asked to vote on in a referendum later this year. For many well-meaning Australians, the idea of voting Yes to the Voice is as tempting as those cheap, feel-good drugs were to 1980s teens. Get a warm inner glow as you assuage any guilt about the plight of Aborigines in Australia, and show your friends, family and colleagues just how cool you are. It’s a pretty cheap fix.

But the reality is that the Voice is no fix at all; certainly not a fix to the genuine problems facing disadvantaged indigenous Australians every day. What it will do, however, is fix the political need of our bureaucrats and left-wing politicians to be seen to be ‘doing something’ after decades of continual and shameful failure. If the Yes vote succeeds, from that moment on our elected representatives will be absolved of any responsibility for the dismal state of affairs in remote communities. All they need do is simply kowtow to the policies prescribed by the Voice.

The fake vetting the fake – how wild will it get?

The belligerent white Aboriginals wandering through the media in Australia’s big cities – not the outback – are the big elephant in the room, the emperor without clothes, the word none dare to speak … and the rest of the cliches. None except an Aboriginal like Jacinta Nampijinpa Price, who actually grew up in Aboriginal society. She calls those box-tickers who have to tell you they’re ‘First Nations’ – fakes who want the prestige and loola, dough, bucks etc etc the government throws around without questioning. Cory Bernardi had a go at them in his Sky News Program.

SBS uses ‘heavily contested’ Indigenous man Bruce Pascoe for comment on ‘fake’ Aboriginals

Cory Benardi, Sky News, 20 March 2023

Sky News host Cory Bernardi says SBS ran a story about “fake Aboriginals” using a contested self-proclaimed Indigenous individual, Bruce Pascoe, as a “prop” to support their concerns.

“SBS – ran a very important story about fake aboriginals recently – the story was sparked by a 25 per cent increase in the number of self-identified aboriginals in the 2021 census, it’s a phenomenon known as ‘race shifting’ for a bunch of people who quote ‘are now box-ticking Indigenous as their identity in the Census, at workplaces, within cultural institutions and in educational settings,” Mr Bernardi said.

“A pretty important story, particularly if people are exploiting a race-shifting loophole gain benefits or preferment or patronage, goodness knows, I reckon, there are probably more than a few of those in public life already.

“We can’t challenge their claims of heritage because that would be racist, so I suspect we’ve got a few Elizabeth Warren equivalents in our midst, you may recall she’s the US Democratic senator who claimed to be native American – Donald Trump labelled her Pocahontas and forced her into getting a DNA test that actually revealed she had less native American DNA than almost every other American citizen.

The Voice – Unanswered questions

‘Unanswered questions’ about consulting the Voice if Australia goes to war

Sky News, 14 March 2023

There are “unanswered questions” surrounding the Voice over whether the proposed representative body will need to be consulted if Australia potentially goes to war, says former Victorian Liberal Party president Michael Kroger.

His comments come after Sydney barrister Brett Walker SC labelled arguments made against the proposed Indigenous Voice to Parliament model as “racist”.

“Do we have to consult the Voice if Australia is to go to war,” Mr Kroger told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“The Executive decides whether our country goes to war, but if the Voice is passed what it means is the Parliament and the Australian public do not need to be consulted, but you’ll have to consult the Aboriginal community about whether we go to war?

“That couldn’t be right – that couldn’t be the law in this country.

“Can they stop us going to war until there’s a High Court decision on that issue?”

Noel Pearson is wrong

Noel Pearson is one of the more reasonable ‘indigenous’ people promoting ‘an Indigenous voice in the Australian Constitution’. In article in today’s Australian, Noel Pearson’s lesson is that all Australians can be one as an opportunity to unite the nation, he is reported as long believing:

‘Australia has three stories: Indigenous foundations; British institutions; and multicultural migra­tion. On Friday, he told an assembly of Indigenous and non-Indigenous students – including migrants – that the referendum Australia was heading towards was a chance to reconcile them all.’

But Pearson is wrong on both accounts. A division along racial lines won’t unite anyone. I will defend that claim at another time. Here I am concerned with what he calls ‘three stories’, but more accurately are three divisions or classes of Australian society, the indigenous class implicitly the superior class. It is the alleged foundations that he gets pitifully wrong.

The idea of a nation is not that of a mass of land. A nation is a coherence of traditions, customs, law, manners, and a system of justice, developed over time. Edmund Burke called it a ‘moral incorporation’ . The physical environment of the moral incorporation influences a nation’s growth in a secondary sense.

When Captain Arthur Phillip drove the British flag into the earth of Sydney Cove on 26 January 1788 and later read the public commission to the assembly of First Fleeters on 7 February, he signalled the foundation of a new nation with its cultural and political lines going back to the British Isles. This was the foundation of the nation which officially became known as Australia several decades later.

The many local tribes had absolutely no input into Australia’s foundations, let alone those dispersed around the vast continent. Some of these would not see a European until decades later. As I wrote in my book Prison Hulk to Redemption:

‘It is misleading and false to talk about the Aboriginals before European settlement as “Australians.” Indeed, the word “Aboriginal” is a post-settlement term to refer to a group of several hundred distinct tribes with different languages … This is the hard reality, whether one likes it or not. It would make more sense to adopt a collective noun like “Aboriginalia” to refer to the collection of tribes before settlement. After settlement, everything changed—in the same manner it had done throughout history when peoples were on the move. The peoples of Aboriginalia would, in time, become integral members of the new nation Australia and make their own unique contribution. Aboriginalia would drift into the mists of history.’  

All the present talk about First Nations, land rights, justice, civil rights and so on, presupposes the nation of Australia as I have described it.
