RE: The Australian politics thread
I wonder whether this woman could explain why there isn't a single woman in the NRL, and when she does, I would like to know her rationale for why the armed forces should be different... Especially when lives are at stake.

Instinctively I would say it'll take women coming home in a body bag for things to change, but the reality is, it would change nothing... The left would use mental gymnastics to shift the blame and 2.) More men would die as a result of incompetent females.

In fact, I can actually see debates within the MSM in the not too distant future discussing female combat deaths, and arguing that because men die in higher numbers, it proves women are just as [If not more] capable in combat.

LOL, goodbye to the government's one seat majority. If Canavan has to be ditched despite "not knowing" he was a foreign citizen, there's nothing that says Barnaby can stay.

RE: The Australian politics thread
This dual citizenship fiasco is ridiculous. With the way it works now, foreign governments are able to politically sabotage anyone they want by just declaring them a citizen of their country. Kinda hard to renounce citizenship of every country whether you ever lived there or not.

PLEASE EXPLAIN: Pauline Hanson dons burqa in the Senate

http://www.news.com.au/national/pauline-...21c7cd50f8

[Image: 0147522ad8342c250866655a55802af8]

PAULINE Hanson has turned up to Parliament wearing a full face covering as she perseveres with her battle against the burqa.

Gasps of “what on earth?” could be heard from the Senate as she sat down. Attorney-General George Brandis looked bemused by the spectacle and later berated Hanson for “mocking” law abiding Australian Muslims.
However, the first order of business was to ascertain it was indeed Hanson beneath the covering.
“We’ve been assured by you that the Clerk (of the Senate) has identified this person here as Senator Hanson,” said Senator Derryn Hinch.
“As a point of order I would like to know if Senator Hanson can stay here unchallenged. I understand she is not a Muslim. She is not of the Islamic faith.

RE: The Australian politics thread
I wanted to mention that I work a job that deals with lots of international tourists. Aussies are cucked and bitch about Trump Tower, like the Canadians, Brits and Irish. Many of them won't even acknowledge his glorious skyscraper. I guess the butthurt is too deep. I will say the Aussies are usually in better shape. Canadians are hit or miss, and the Brits/Irish need to step it up. The rest of Western Europe is purely brainwashed to hate Trump.

The women from all of these countries are garbage. The Latino/Oriental/Eastern European women put them to shame. I guess as an American our women aren't much better than the rest of the Anglosphere. The US does have the best Anglosphere pussy though, regardless of what anyone says. I guess that's like a participation trophy.

The Chinese/Japanese/Koreans/Filipinos/Indians are by far the most accepting to Trump. And obviously anyone from a conservative US state, or even purple state. The Eastern Euros also seem to be more accepting of Trump.

It's rather telling how far the reach of mainstream media's "Narrative" is, when so many Trump related matters have nothing to do with Australia in any way shape nor form.
Yet all the Aus. MSM outlets parrot the likes of MSNBC & CNN to the nth degree.

I've never really bothered to comment on American healthcare / Obamacare etc., cause it has no bearing on me in any way in Australia.
That won't prevent Aus. MSM outlets from wagging their fingers at Trump though...

Everything you need to know about the same-sex marriage postal vote

http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/gay-mar...07eb458f8b

Apparently, certain retards intent to cover their postal forms in glitter...


Assuming the "slacktivist" millennials bother to vote that is :

Time for young people to do something that can make a difference

http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/gay-mar...e1c5b441aa

If you believe the pollsters, these same young people care about same-sex marriage and could be crucial in deciding the outcome.
Previous Galaxy polls have shown about 80 per cent of those aged 18 to 24 years old back marriage equality. And judging from the number of rainbow filters I see on people’s Facebook profiles, this is an underestimate.
Even for those that don’t support the change, you’d think they would want to put their view forward.
But maybe for this generation of slacktivists, it really is too hard to post a letter.
The Australian Electoral Commission has been releasing numbers of new enrolments and they’re not as good as some community groups were hoping, even though you can do this online.
According to the AEC, there were 811,000 Australians “missing” from the roll as of June 30 and 279,000 of them were aged 18-24.
Yet the latest figures released by the AEC about enrolments — with just one day to go before the close of the rolls — show just 54,545 people across all ages enrolled between August 8 and 22.

More lunacy:

Australia debates Captain Cook 'discovery' statue

[Image: _97487074_gettyimages-52617193.jpg]

Quote:A debate has ignited in Australia over a statue of British explorer Captain James Cook, which has a plaque saying he "discovered this territory".

The 19th Century statue, in Sydney's central Hyde Park, has come under scrutiny following recent discussion over Confederate monuments in the US.

Critics say the inscription overlooks indigenous Australians, while others defend it as being part of history.

Sydney's city council says it will seek advice on the issue.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore said she had referred the debate to an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander advisory panel.

When was the statue built?

The monument was installed more than a century after Capt Cook arrived in Australia in 1770, later claiming the region for the British crown.

Funded by the New South Wales government and members of the public, the statue was completed by English sculptor Thomas Woolner and unveiled in front of a huge crowd in 1879.

It bears inscriptions marking Capt Cook's birth and death, but it is the south-facing engraving - "Discovered this territory 1770" - which has caused controversy.

What is the criticism?

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation's indigenous affairs editor, Stan Grant, wrote an article on Friday arguing that "surely we need no longer maintain the fiction that he [Capt Cook] 'discovered' this country".

Grant said that the inscription should be changed. He argued that some other indigenous people favoured removing the statue.

Referring to a comment by PM Malcolm Turnbull about honouring indigenous Australians, Grant wrote: "If he is serious then what could be more apt than to correct a monument that tells us, still, that in 1770 we did not exist?"

His argument has provoked much national discussion, and has received support, particularly on social media.

Grant wrote the column following violent clashes in Virginia earlier this month and debate about America's racial legacy.

How is it being defended?

In a column for The Australian, historian Keith Windschuttle wrote that the inscription was "perfectly accurate" if the word "territory" was defined as the east coast of Australia.

"Cook was in fact the first person in history to traverse the whole of this coastline and view its 2,000 miles (3,200km) of shores and hinterland," he wrote, describing the debate as "wanton provocation".

Others have suggested keeping the monument but finding better ways to publicly acknowledge indigenous Australians.

"What is wrong with telling both stories, rather than rewriting history and obliterating a plaque to James Cook?" one commentator, Tim Webster, told Channel Seven.


What does Sydney's council say?

Ms Moore said the issue would be discussed by its indigenous advisory board before the council took any position.

"There have been too many people in mainstream Australia ready to make judgement on these issues without consulting indigenous communities, and whether well-meaning or not, it's often done more harm than good," she said in a statement to the BBC.

She said the council had undertaken several initiatives to recognise indigenous culture.

Is this an isolated debate?

No, discussion about how to better recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians has stepped up in recent months.

In May, a landmark summit of indigenous leaders called for a formal representative body in parliament and a pathway to a treaty.

The national Australia Day celebration, an anniversary of the arrival of Britain's First Fleet, has also sparked controversy.


Two Melbourne councils in the last week have voted - one unanimously - to shift their celebrations over indigenous cultural sensitivities.

Also this vote, unlike all others in australia, is not compulsory. This means that the 90% of australians who dont give a fuck largely wont bother voting, making this a contest between SJWs and a coalition of traditionalists and shitlords. Im reasonably confident that the SJWs dont have the numbers to win especially with this news about the poor uptake of enrolment within the SJW age bracket.

Stay tuned for liberal tears, aussie style.

Ha!

We had drama over captain cook here in Hawaii. There's a few statues that people wanted taken down and a town flat out named Captain Cook that people wanted changed.

They say this is because captain cook was a real asshole to the natives. He brought diseases and was a killer and blah blah blah.

In actuality, native Hawaiians barbecued and ate captain cook after they killed him, so I was always confused.

Aloha!
