Pauline Hanson: “I’m not White Trash!”

November 24, 2016

cyam-esuoaedcn8

One Nation leader, Pauline Hanson, says she’s been subjected to ‘racist abuse’ and is sick of what she calls ‘reverse racism’.

Senator Hanson, along with Liberal Democrat David Leyonhjelm, has proposed a private bill that seeks to eradicate race-hate laws.

During debate in the Senate on Thursday she said people should look at the way different religions make comments to women who don’t wish to cover themselves up.

She claimed women couldn’t swim at beaches because others were offensive towards them.

‘There is a lot of this going on in this country,’ Senator Hanson said.

‘WE CAN’T SAY ANYTHING ANYMORE’

‘We can’t have an opinion, we can’t say anything anymore.’

Unlike the bill proposed by Liberal backbencher Cory Bernardi to remove the words ‘offend’ and ‘insult’ from section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act, Hanson’s bill seeks to remove the entire part of the law dealing with prohibition of offensive behaviour based on racial hatred.

Senator Hanson says she’s ‘sick of being called a racist,’ insisting her accusers can’t point to ‘one racist word’ she has ever uttered.

WHY CAN’T THEY JUST SEE THE FUNNY SIDE OF RACISM?

She insists she’s been subjected to ‘racist slurs,’ like ‘white trash’, and that Greek and Italian immigrants had a ‘good sense of humour’ about being called ‘wogs’.

Indigenous Labor senator Pat Dodson was scathing of the proposed changes, declaring ‘bigotry was back in favour.’

He slammed comments by Immigration Minister Peter Dutton about Lebanese Muslim immigration being a mistake, saying the ‘stupidity’ of his language had ‘excited some lunatic’ to threaten violence and death to Muslim Labor MP Anne Aly.

‘This is what words do – when you don’t understand and comprehend the difference between debate and prejudice.’

He spoke about his own fight for freedom, having been born before the 1967 referendum, when indigenous Australians were not counted in the census.

‘There was a hell of a lot wrong with freedom if you had to fight to experience it,’ Senator Dodson said.

‘If this nation cannot stand up for the weakest and the poorest and those who are most vulnerable because of their race, their ethnicity, or their beliefs, then we have become a very sad replication of what democracy is about.

‘Racism is something that isn’t growing wild out there in the fields – it’s actually tendered in a flowerbox sitting on the windowsills of flats and houses.’

    They had to, didn’t they?

    Pauline the feminist, who knew? I eagerly await her lecturing and educating those angry ‘men’s rights’ groups.

    “Hey, @PeterDutton_MP, I’m a proud Lebanese Australian and I’m a Minister in the Victorian Labor Government. Apologise!”

    Maybe you should apologise for playing the victim.

    “Kairouz was born in Melbourne. Victoria. Her parents are Maronite Christians from Lebanon. Kairouz was educated at St Mary’s Primary School in Thornbury from 1980 to 1986 and Santa Maria Girls College, Northcote from 1987 to 1992.”

    Labor MP Anne Aly and family receive death threats after Peter Dutton comments

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-11-23/anne-aly-and-family-receive-death-threats/8050496

    Aly was born in Alexandria, Egypt and migrated to Australia at the age of two years

    Now, as you were saying tosy? Or are they just “playing the victim” (as victims are often wont to do)

    Nah! It makes me Australian!

    So what about “victims” of domestic violence? One wonders …

    “Now, as you were saying tosy? Or are they just “playing the victim” (as victims are often wont to do)”

    Oh, so you’re saying Maronite Christian Marlene Kairouz isn’t playing the victim because Lebanese Muslim Anne Aly has received death threats. Interesting.

    Oh for Fucks Sake. When will this Bullshit end ?

    From the OZ

    “Australia Day next year will come two days late for one West Australian council.

    The City of Fremantle, south of Perth, has decided to move its traditional January 26 events to January 28 because of cultural sensitivities.

    “We thought it was time to acknowledge it wasn’t a day of celebration for everybody and it was an opportunity for us to come up with a different format on a different day that could be truly inclusive,” Mayor Brad Pettitt told The West Australian newspaper on Friday.

    Mr Pettitt said the council said it had heard “loud and clear” from local Aboriginal elders that it wasn’t a day to celebrate.

    But former West Australian of the Year Robert Isaacs told the paper he hadn’t heard of any complaints from his Aboriginal community.

    “It’s not in line with community attitudes,” he said.

    “I strongly condemn them for this whole thing … Australia Day is Australia Day.”

    Australia Day marks the arrival of the First Fleet of ships from Britain in NSW on January 26, 1788.”

    Lebanese Muslim Anne Aly

    I’m typing this slowly to see if you pick up on it 😉

    Aly was born in Alexandria, Egypt

    Whereas

    Kairouz was born in Melbourne. Victoria. Her parents are Maronite Christians from Lebanon

    Or perhaps yor outlook reflects the exact dog whistle dutton was going for? Perhaps?

  13. November 25, 2016 5:26 pm

    Dutton was referring to Lebanese Muslims who came here in 1976-77. The woman playing the victim card is a Christian. Can you see the difference now?

    Can you see the difference now?

    Yes, one is Lebanese, one is Egyptian.

    Oh, it is the MUSLIM bit we are supposed to fear is it?

    You see, he started out just attacking Lebanese, then started on the Muslim bit.

    Dog whistling can be difficult. Especially when those being whistled at don’t know if someone is Christian or Muslim, or Lebanese or Egyptian.

    It’s interesting that there is not a specialised cime unit specifically focused on New Zealanders, Italians, Greeks, British, Vietnamese… etc crime

    Maybe the NSW police are getting their lead from Dutton (!!), or perhaps they think they have a particular (and serious) problem with that part of the community.

    Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad
    The Squad conducts multi level investigations and develops intelligence products on Middle Eastern Organised Crime groups including those who have a propensity for violence.

    you mean the guy who was a ‘plod’ rofl

    I do recall there used to be Italian/Greek, and the Asian units.

    Now “middle east” (or is it Muslim?) is the focus.

    # ,, nice to see timmydunlop trying to break out of the echo chamber armchair. l only hit the limited-news `sign-up` crap via his link tho. But here is a couple of things of similar flavor. #braying-media

    notorious,,,,list of ostensibly `fake` news sites .. created by a liberal professor, seemingly out of thin air .. spread like wildfire online in the past two days and was eagerly reprinted by corporate media presstitutes hoping to vindicate their own failed reporting on the 2016 election,,,,

    Anyone,,,,with an ounce of sense and access to the Internet should be able to ferret out the truth and lies in these stories with some basic research. That these stories flourish is largely owing to the general gullibility, laziness and media illiteracy of the general public, which through its learned compliance rarely questions, challenges or confronts,,,,

    So,,,,let`s have no more of this handwringing, heart-wrenching, morally offended talk about fake news by media outlets that have become propagandists for the false reality created by the American government.

    After all, as Glenn Greenwald points out, `The term propaganda rings melodramatic and exaggerated, but a press that—whether from fear, careerism, or conviction—uncritically recites false government claims and reports them as fact, or treats elected officials with a reverence reserved for royalty, cannot be accurately described as engaged in any other function`,,,,

    # ,, correct

    ‘See you in court’: Student rejects Labor MP Terri Butler’s apology and vows to continue lawsuit

    A stoush between a Queensland law student and Labor frontbencher Terri Butler over claims of a “racist smear” is bound for court after he bluntly rejected her apology as a “sham” and vowed to press ahead with a $150,000 defamation lawsuit.
    Ms Butler announced at the weekend she had apologised to 25-year-old Calum Thwaites after repeating on national television allegations levelled against him in a case brought under controversial section 18c of the Racial Discrimination Act
