If you celebrate Australia Day on Jan. 26 you are a white supremacist, according to Sue Lines, federal Labor senator for Western Australia, who is also the deputy president of the senate. She blathered in a Facebook post that she paid to have promoted/advertised:
Australia Day celebrates white supremacy and the legacy of colonisation that is directly linked to the various ways we continue to fail First Nations people.
It’s wrapped up in modern racist policies like the cashless debit card, with deaths in custody and our failure to close the gap. January 26th should be a day of mourning and reflection.
For those who don’t know, Captain Arthur Phillips arrived with the First Fleet in what became Sydney on January 26 in 1788. His arrival, she says, began
a destructive era of colonisation, genocide and dispossession.
That’s all that happened. They just did a lot of colonising, genociding, and dispossessing, and everywhere they found an Aborigine they just went all genocidal on them. Once the colonists had completed the genocide of the Aborigines around Sydney they sent out explorers to find more Aborigines to genocide. They also sent word to London:
“please send more men, this place is bigger than we thought, and there is still a lot of genocide to be done here, thanks”
The Aborigines were extremely primitive relative to the British, and naturally, sadly, none survived the white supremacist genocidal onslaught, and the colonists then had no idea what to do anymore, so nothing else happened in the history of Australia, at least nothing good.
And as everybody knows if the British hadn’t come here there would still be Aborigines alive today, they wouldn’t have been wiped out, and they would still be living a traditional tribal life, the whole world would have just left them alone forever.
So today, if you celebrate Australia Day you are celebrating, and complicit in, genocide, and you are also a white supremacist, and when Labor wins office being a “white supremacist” will be illegal, and if you make the mistake of celebrating genocide then, you will go to jail.
Anyway, you know you want more of Sue, and you’re going to get it:
These people are going to get into government one day, although if this bitter hateful bitch is any guide it seems they don’t want that to happen any time soon.
