This is something we might expect of Kiwis or Pakistanis, but not Australians. We have not just lost respect for the game of cricket, we have lost respect for Australia. How else could our sporting representatives contrive such an act when they know every camera on the ground is following the ball. Did they intend to be caught? If not, then Steve Smith and company are blithering idiots.
But we know they are not idiots, so only one conclusion can be reached… respect for Australia has all but vanished and Australia’s dismal sporting results show it. When you lose respect for your nationhood you lose respect for yourself, your flag, your culture… and in this case, your beloved baggy green!
It’s difficult to maintain respect for a nation that has sold out to UN globalists and has adopted an insane Paris Accord that has every other socialist nation in the world wild with excitement over a massive, communist-inspired, redistribution of income that is based on an outright lie and has failed on every single occasion!
How can anyone respect a nation that has allowed its reliable energy sources to be blown up or irreparably dismantled in return for an unattainable diminution of an essential gas that all our plants rely on?
What about a nation that would invite non-assimilating, illegal immigrant arrivals of a despised opposing culture into suburbs where ghettos thrive due to them not speaking English and with no intention to learn? And 80 per cent of these people will rely on the very welfare handouts that the nation’s population desperately needs itself. Is this a recipe for productive assimilation? Of course not.
Would you maintain respect for your nation if, after it elected a conservative government and a conservative leader in an electoral landslide, and then allowed a miscreant “socialist” group, feigning conservatism, to stage a coup and kill off that first term Leader, when almost an entire media cabal agreed with this type of bastardry?
And who agrees the most with killing off all kinds of conservatism? Yes, the nation’s fully funded ABC network, meaning the people’s will has been betrayed by a medium that is wholly owned by the people. Howzat work out!
How is it possible to respect an island nation that tore down its borders and allowed people smugglers to drown thousands in transit? It’s head scratching stuff, but it gets worse!
Can anyone respect a nation that would use a dishonest "survey" to justify trashing its treasured and time-honoured Marriage Act in favour of a sexually deviant marriage Act,
…or a nation that would seriously entertain electing a bacterially baseborn bastard like Bill Shorten as its Leader?
Anyway, if you think coach Darren Lehmann wasn’t involved, you haven’t been watching, and Steve Smith will never wear the baggy green again.
…you see, he has proved his is not the same baggy green that Donald Bradman wore.
