In 2008 Prime Minister Kevin Rudd issued an official national apology for the mistreatment of Australia’s indigenous people.

Since then, evidence has abounded that race relations have simply gotten worse with open resentment and even violent protests in Australia.

The latest despicable display of racial bitterness is NRL star Cody Walker’s unoriginal refusal to sing the national anthem before the State of Origin opener.

You’d never guess it’s actually “National Reconciliation Week”, unless that means racist virtue-signalling week. Yes, the people complaining loudest about racism are plainly racists demanding obeisance.

This week will potentially only serve to deepen resentment & widen divisions between Aussies who really don’t see any differences between us and those with varying fractions of indigenous blood who may or may not hold everyone else guilty for historical wrongs. 

Fortunately most non-Aboriginal Australians are sensible enough to overlook these childish acts.

Merriam-Webster defines reconciliation as restoring friendship or harmony. Reconciliation has never been further from grasp than it is now, but there are profound changes that must happen and obstacles which must be removed before it ever can happen.

Apologies are useless without forgiveness.

I can’t tell whether it’s a majority or a minority of Australian’s with indigenous heritage, but far too many are clinging to victimhood in a way that makes reconciliation a long way off.

Just this morning on one of the breakfast news shows one Aboriginal elder nonchalantly mentioned there can “never be forgiveness” for some historical attack.

Various notable figures including Nelson Mandela have been quoted as saying  “Unforgiveness is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.”

There’s no substitute for personal responsibility.

There can be no moving forward while so many people are hopelessly mired in the past. There can be no friendship with people constantly reminding you of what people you don’t know did to other people you never met and holding you responsible for it.

The standard rejection of this sage wisdom by bitter blacktivists cites ongoing injustices as justification for constantly picking the scabs cherished since the 18th Century.

But that’s the problem. There’s always going to be immature jerks of deficient character to legitimise the grievance industry. At some stage you’re going to have to put down the poison and stop waiting for the other person to die.

The only person you can control is you. The only attitude you can adjust is yours. Placing all your hopes for reconciliation in behaviours desired of other people is to abdicate your own responsibility and transfer all your power to those people.

There’s no such thing as ‘your truth’.

One thing many are calling for in this year’s virtue signalling week is a foundation of truth. The obese elephant in the room though is the omnipresent imposition of a single perspective being offered as objective truth.

The implication is that if you dissent from the status quo, you are the problem, and you must be re-educated to understand concepts such as white-guilt, white-privilege, and pervasive, systemic racism.

Consequently, you must agree to whatever reparations are unreasonably demanded by the grievance industry. Never mind that frequent inter-tribe invasions, massacres & wars were at least as common here as the rest of world history: but when whites do it, it’s unforgiveable.

Race-based solutions are just racism in lipstick.

An objective Truth which undergirds Western common law is Imago Dei, a Latin phrase which means that every human being is made in the image of God and as such is of equal value.

That’s why slavery is wrong, the holocaust is wrong, segregation and abortion are wrong – they devalue entire classes of humans. That’s why suffrage is right, as are equal pay laws. There is no natural difference between any two persons’ inherent value regardless of age, gender, religion or race.

To suggest then that our constitution should honour one ethnic group and no other is to divide Australians on race, something we’ve rightly strived to erase over time.

To suggest there should be extra recognition in our Parliaments for certain voices, solely because of their race and to the permanent exclusion of all others, is to violate the sacred democratic value of one man, one vote.

Blacktivists hate Australia.

There are some people who simply want no part of this nation. They have no affection for Australia in their hearts. 

They loudly decry the evils of the continent’s settlement by ignorantly calling it an invasion. Some athletes, revelling in the platforms & privileges which accompany the elite levels they’ve achieved. Some even refuse to sing the national anthem, bitterly claiming it doesn’t represent their family.

How are we meant to be reconciled to people who take great pride in utterly rejecting having anything to do with us? We have a flag that includes everyone who wants to be and excludes no one because they aren’t the right colour.

We have an anthem that rejoices in equal opportunity for everyone. We have a government that grants every adult equal voice regardless of their identity.

There can never be reconciliation until the voices of mature Australians drown out those who prefer to exploit and prolong division.

Maturity requires forgiveness instead of resentment, moving forward without demanding certain conditions from others, accepting that we’re going to have divergent opinions about who done what when, relinquishing a subjective notion of reparative ‘justice’, and happily choosing to be one of us: a functional Australian without a racially-charged chip on your shoulder.

National Reconciliation Week is only intended to change white people, only makes demands of white people, and only holds white people responsible for any lack of reconciliation.

As such it disempowers black people, locks them in a prison of paternalism, and tells them they are entirely helpless victims dependent on the good will & character of others.

It’s another example of how the ‘progressive’ road of good intentions doesn’t lead to anywhere.

Delingpole: To Survive, Britain’s Conservatives Must ‘Get Rid of the Green Crap’

How many times do I have to explain this? The Greens are not caring, nurturing saviours of the planet. They are Watermelons, green on the outside red on the inside. If they genuinely cared about nature they certainly wouldn’t push such environmentally damaging schemes as industrial wind turbines or biofuels. For the Greens, environmental issues are merely a convenient, fashionable, and cuddly mask to disguise their aggressively anti-capitalist, anti-growth, anti-human, redistributive, big-government-heavy agenda.

Bill Shorten has been blasted as “pathetic” for blaming “corporate leviathans” and “a financial behemoth” for his shock election loss.

The former opposition leader told Labor’s party room in Canberra that the odds were stacked against him because of “powerful vested interests”.

“I understand there are lessons to be learned from defeat,” he told the Labor Party room.

“We were up against corporate leviathans, a financial behemoth, spending hundreds of millions of dollars telling lies, spreading fear.

Way back in the Whitlam years an aboriginal woman told my mother who was a primary school teacher, “Mrs B., the world is now our oyster.” She was referring to the swell of goodwill and the swathe of goodies available to aboriginals. That was over forty years ago.

So what happened? Why are so many aborigines sullen, angry and never satisfied? Seeing as the billions spent every year is not doing much good why continue throwing good money after bad?

If you want to make a name for yourself Scomo immediatly organise a working group to get the water in the northern rivers down to the southern states. We have a electricity gride why should we not have a water grid.
We know it is expensive, but if a start is made, and slowly over the years we build it, it will be something to support the country for hundreds of years.

Tornadoes. Progressive politicians like Al Gore, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D.-N.Y., don’t hesitate to blame any kind of severe weather – even if it is decreasing over time – on global warming. With the devastating Dayton, Ohio, tornadoes fresh on our minds, it is useful to examine exactly why (modest) global warming has produced fewer – not more – of such events. The simple answer is that tornado formation requires unusually cool air. Very few thunderstorms produce tornadoes. In the hot and humid tropics, they are virtually unheard of. The reason why is that (unlike hurricanes)… Read more »

This despicable man and what he has done to genuine Australians is about to bring him completely undone — he will be banished from the Party and the Unions and his existing cushy private life will be destroyed.
Shorten is such an asshole and deserves a jail sentence of several years for the thievery and corruption over the last 20 years.

A great truthful article and IMO opinion this phrase sums it up and is exactly the reason why it will never happen.
‘Maturity requires forgiveness instead of resentment, moving forward without demanding certain conditions from others’. Others being whitey.
I heard a couple of abos talking on the ABC radio yesterday about this and in my mind it was a very thinly veiled blame game aimed at whitey and what he has done to them and their people while claiming it was about reconciliation .. compensation is more like it and plenty of it.

Brexit Party Would Wipe out Tories if EU Results Translate into Constituencies

Analysis by British political television program the Peston show has assessed that the new Brexit Party would wipe out the establishment parties if its European Parliament election victory were translated into General Election constituency seats.

If the EU results were translated into national seats, the Liberal Democrats would have come first in 76 constituencies, Labour would have taken the lead in 67, with the Conservatives having won just one seat, while the Brexit Party would have won in an astounding 414 constituencies.

I have to say that I was far more in favour of assisting aboriginals and encouraging reconciliation before the loud mouthed leftist trash virtue signalers got on board to yell over all rational debate.

There is talk that the Sri Lankan deportees may have been Christians fleeing after the series of church bombings on that island.
No wonder Peter Plod is keeping all details secret – as even the locals of Christmas Island knew nothing of the arrival and subsequent departure.
