The Greens cement their stupidity once again. Ignoring the consistent message of Aboriginal leaders over many years, The Greens insist we must change the date of Australia Day because Jan 26 marks one of genocide.
No, it doesn’t matter that the people most likely in touch with the people related to the ‘real’ victims of 200+ years ago don’t require it be renamed ‘Invasion Day’, The Greens apparently know better. The majority of native Aussies have already moved on and repeatedly tell us so but The Greens are insistent on finding whatever remnants of those who want to be victims to ensure all those Aussies from multiple ethnic backgrounds and cultures leave the BBQ lids shut and mourn over things they had no control over given they weren’t even born.
What is more telling with Greens supporters is the vilification of Aboriginal leaders who openly reject their stance. What part of “let’s all unite as Australians and celebrate our nation” don’t they get? Aboriginal leaders are for unity and The Greens division. They even want flags flown at half mast. The Greens manifesto remains squarely in the rear view mirror.
It was only last year where like minds looked to end “Mothers Day” because it was not ‘inclusive’ enough. Let’s find any excuse to have a moan about something that affects minorities that make up an infinitesimal fraction. Let’s persecute the majority to ensure inclusiveness.
This looniness is not limited to Australia. Take the British Medical Association. It has published a guide outlining trans-inclusive language. As Jennifer Oriel wrote in The Australian yesterday, “Consider the text on pregnancy: “A large majority of people that have been pregnant or have given birth identify as women. We can include intersex men and transmen who may get pregnant by saying ‘pregnant people’ instead of ‘expectant mothers’.” Alternatively, we could state biological fact by refusing to say “pregnant people”. I don’t care if you’re a PC hipster, “in transition” or running the asylum, you’re not pregnant unless you have a womb and if there’s a baby in there, you’re an expectant mother.”
Lord help us if The Greens read that memo. The maternity ward signs will be pulled down in no time.
