Woolworths – Treachery Betrayal

In early January 2024, the news broke that the Woolworths Group had got rid of their Australia Day merchandise (flags, caps, towels, and so on). They would no longer sell anything to do with Australia Day. The decision was clearly ideological. Woolworths management had joined the woke elites who supported the Aboriginal activists. This was in the face of the crushing defeat the activists suffered in the referendum to authorize what in reality was a separate Aboriginal state. Outrage thundered across Australia. Woolworths remained unrepentant. In this video, I show on the basis of the information on Woolworths’ corporate website, that the Woolworths’ Group is fully committed to the wokish agenda. The outrage of the ordinary Australian was justified.

TRANSCRIPT

Woolworth’s decision to remove Australia Day merchandise from its shelves hit like a bombshell across Australia.

What could they have been thinking, people were asking? Loud contempt and savage criticism have been poured on the corporate sector for cowardly turning their backs on ordinary people and falling in behind the wokist and Marxist elites who are never finished reading us their lessons and never finished scheming and manipulating the political process.

One would think that prudence would have dictated more subtle political action. But, no, in a sickening act of betrayal, they resorted to a business nulla nulla to bash us into submitting to their wokist political agenda. Indeed, Woolworths’ competitor, Coles, seems to have decided to keep Australia Day stock and escaped the lashing. Woolworths’ cussedness is an indication of their ideological rigidity. The people must obey, and if they resist, they must be made to obey.

Woolworths CEO Brad Banducci fronted the media on behalf of what’s called the Woolworths Group Executive Committee to defend the corporation’s action.

He squirmed and wriggled as he struggled to parry the criticism with the excuse that it was an economic decision. Australia Day merchandise did not sell. No sense in having stock that doesn’t sell. That’s pitiable nonsense, of course. It’s a fact that Australians buy Australia Day merchandise throughout the year, and not only around Australia Day. On simple business principles, a business would stock merchandise for which there was a demand. Brad’s explanation did not wash. And people could smell the wokist politics a mile off.

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.

War with Russia is coming – unless action is taken

As I have confessed, Putin fooled me as he has fooled and still fools many conservatives. The key aspect about Putin is that you cannot trust a word that comes out of his mouth. Everything he says is to manipulate the audience he is addressing. He controls the Russian population by strictly supervising the media, telling the Russian people a pack of lies, blocking foreign media, and jailing or killing those defying his dictates.

For the Western audience, he has a stock of conservative ideas to shower on them. He focuses on the Christian groups with sentiments about family, religion, and history. Indeed, I once thought he was essentially a Burkean conservative because of his valuing Russian history and its lessons. An appalling mistake that now embarrasses me.

In reality, Putin is a vicious murdering type of Russian Czar who is fixated on rebuilding the Russian empire. Nothing stands in his way. He is in a constant state of recalculating what he says to suit the time, place and audience. That’s the reason he so often contradicts himself – seemingly contradicts himself. He stays unerringly on the line.

If the West does not prepare itself, it might find Putin and his army in its backyard. The interview below with General Richard Shirreff shows just what’s at stake. Shirreff talks about rebuilding the army of the NATO countries. What he does not talk about are the emasculating ideologies that are weakening the West. These ideologies have to be eliminated. The reality is that men fight wars.

Colonization is a fact of history

Anyone with a modest education would know that Islam arose in the 7th century and then proceeded to conquer and colonize the countries around Mediterranean which were mostly Christian. If the Islamic armies had not been stopped outside Vienna and later driven out of Spain, the map of Europe and the peoples of Europe would look a whole lot different. Islam is in essence a conquering colonising religion. They will not stop. The empirical evidence is overwhelming. Paul Collits takes us through the evidence below.

Colonisation 2.0

PAUL COLLITS, Newsletter, 6 DEC 2023

Two statements struck me this week. 

One came from a Hamas leader, who said that 7 October was “just a rehearsal”.  Which kind of makes Israel’s strategy of wiping out Hamas look pretty sensible.  Proportional, blah, blah, blah.

The second comes from the classical historian Victor Davis Hanson:

The pro-Hamas crowd has little appreciation that colonizing Arab Muslims have one of history’s longest records of “settling” other countries far from their historic birthland.

Like Rotherham, United Kingdom, where the local teenage girls received undue attention from the incomers [widespread cases of grooming and sexual abuse], just to take a random example.  Or Paris.  Or Lakemba.

Hanson continues:

They “settled” and “colonized” the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine Middle East, Berber North Africa, and southern Spain. Millions of Middle Easterners migrated to—“settled?”—supposedly infidel European cities, where they often self-segregate and do not assimilate fully with their magnanimous hosts.

So, the Palestinians are both serial terrorists AND colonisers.  But why pick on them?   We are all colonisers.  Every damned one of us, since Adam was a boy.  We know that the British were.  Post 1788 bleaters, typically located in settler colonial studies programs housed in our more prestigious universities, never, ever shut up about it.

Hanson also states:

Before Israel even retaliated, the mass murdering of Jews earned praise from the Middle East, the international hard Left, and especially the faculty and students of elite Western campuses. See The Unhinged Among Us.

Note the third cohort of Jew-haters mentioned here.  The faculty and students of elite campuses.  Three things have simultaneously occurred over half a century in the academy to turn it into a seed-bed of social revolution.  First, there was the takeover of the humanities by post-modernist Marxism-Freudianism.  Second, we massively increased the numbers going on to higher education.  And third, we corporatised what were formerly communities of scholars, turning academics into employees and colonising – I use this word deliberately – the activity of teaching and learning with mini human resources dictatorships.  The universities have become the fulcrums of the push to change society.

Well, if VDH [Victor Davis Hanson] is correct, it is true that Aborigines and Palestinians do have much in common.  They are engaged in more or less aggressive re-colonisation (or de-colonisation) projects.  Tent embassy founder Gary Foley recently said:

Aboriginal people have a deep understanding of what Palestinians are going through because we are going through the same.  We stand with you to the end.

Intifada dreaming, as Timothy Cootes calls it.  Cootes says:

Decolonisation, as activists and professors like to remind each other, is not a metaphor.: it must involve taking back of land and the reclamation of sovereignty, and one might have to be armed when doing so. See Intifada Dreaming.

Growing momentum for positive vote?

PM Albanese claims, ‘momentum is growing to enshrining an Indigenous voice in the Constitution’? Nonsense. The opposite. There’s growing resistance to setting up an apartheid system favouring mainly city-based Anglo-Aboriginals. He says he ‘commits to holding a national poll in the next 12 months’? Beware the Labor Party’s attempt to rush through the vote/referendum before the resistance spins out of control.

Mark Latham on indigenous violence

Mark Latham, NSW One Nation leader, is not afraid to speak out about the violence in First Nations communities while the left typically ignore frightful circumstances that don’t fit their agenda. From his FB page.

AUSTRALIA’S WORST EPIDEMIC

Mark Latham, Facebook, 5 June 2022

Occasionally the mainstream media play a useful role.

This weekend The Australian newspaper has interviewed Judge Judith Kelly in the Northern Territory. She has highlighted the epidemic of violence and child sexual abuse in Indigenous communities.

Since 2000 in the Northern Territory, the police have shot dead two Aboriginal men while 52 women have died from homicides, mostly at the hands of their partners.

That puts the problem in perspective.

It’s the national tragedy the Left don’t want to talk about, preferring endless (and meaningless) Welcome to Country ceremonies and the Uluṟu Statement for a treaty and the rewriting of Australian history.

In NSW I have spoken to police officers in the Western districts of the State who say they work on the assumption that every Aboriginal child over the age of 5 has been sexually abused.

I asked Premier Dom Perrottet about this and he said “there’s no evidence to say this is true”.

That’s because Perrottet hasn’t tried to examine the evidence.

When he became Premier he said Aboriginal Affairs was a big priority for him. What has that meant in practice?

His big announcement was to fly the Aboriginal flag on the Sydney Harbour Bridge all-year-round. Something he had previously (and accurately) described as pathetic ‘virtue signaling’.

Some problems are too hard for weak politicians like Perrottet to solve. Albanese is no better.

The Indigenous in Australia have everything: TV advertising, special football jumpers, reserved employment places, flags on bridges, Sorry statements, Welcome to Country, land rights and big welfare spending.

They have everything except solutions to the nation’s worst plague, the curse of their wives and children not being able to sleep safely at night.

Say this and the Left scream ‘racist’.

The true racism (and barbarism) is to ignore the plight of little girls being raped by their drunken ‘uncles’.

Tragically, this is what most politicians do.

Promoting inter-race relationships – insulting black men

Nobody could miss the campaign all over television to promote inter-race relationships. The purpose seems clear enough. The (mostly white) woke mob who control all organs of information dissemination want to dissolve the white population – breed us out of existence. Enough of white supremacy – particularly in white societies like Australia!

In order to succeed in this tactic, the wokists think they have to get the population used to the idea of mixed-race couples with their mix-race children. They must desensitize people’s negative reactions. The most frequent inter-race couple portrayed is a black man and a (lily) white woman.

If I was a black man I would feel insulted.

Transgender fascists and gutless sports authorities

Today’s newsletter from Senator Claire Chandler catalogues the ideological ferociousness of transgender activists and the floppy backbones of the sports authorities.

If you’re a woman and you’re reading this newsletter, there’s a fair chance you’ve been called a ‘TERF’ by trans activists and their supporters in the media and politics.

It’s their go-to insult for any woman who recognises the reality of biological sex or insists that women should be entitled to single-sex sports, spaces or facilities. Often, the slur is accompanied by threats of violence or misogynistic insults.

Here are the consequences of the celebration by many on the left of online abuse of women, and their rush to cheer on males invading women’s sport.

Male MMA fighter Fallon Fox, who chooses to fight women and once fractured a female athletes skull, is openly bragging about punching ‘TERFs’ (meaning women who recognise the person punching them is male) in the face. Fox describes this as ‘doing my part’.


This is nothing more or less than a male bragging about violence against women, with an implicit threat that there are other activists out there willing to do the same to anyone they label a ‘TERF’.

And if you think that Fox is just an isolated crank, you’d be wrong. Fox has been breathlessly praised as “inspirational” by activist groups and worldwide media outlets.

Most troubling for Australian women might be the Twitter reaction to Fox from an Australian activist who was invited to participate in the development of Sport Australia’s infamous guidelines stating that women’s sport should be based on self-affirmed gender rather than sex.

In response to Fox’s brag about the “three times where I’ve punched a TERF in the face”, the activist who helped set Sport Australia’s position on allowing males into women’s sports said “You legend [heart emoji]” 

It’s no wonder that public support for sporting bodies and governments to protect women’s sport is growing. The more the public sees of males who force their way into women’s sport, the more we see the motivation behind it and how dangerous and unfair it is to female athletes.

The Australian Rugby League commission is the latest Australian sporting body to realise it might be unpopular if they expose TV audiences to male players smashing into females.

Media reports this week revealed that the NRLW has an application for a male to play in the country’s top-level women’s competition. This is an unsurprising development because the NRL’s own policies actively encourage males identifying as women to play women’s competitions.

Apparently, women and girls at their community clubs being forced to take hits from male players wasn’t a reason for the ARL to review their policy, but the prospect of it happening live on TV might be. 

This is not complex – males should not be playing in women’s rugby league competitions at ANY level.

It won’t be good enough for the ARL to minimise their own PR risk by making only elite level competition single-sex, while continuing to force female players at community level to play against males. As my Save Women’s Sport Bill makes clear, all Australian women and girls must be supported, protected and entitled to single-sex sport.
