Mark Latham unleashes in maiden speech: How did our nation come to this?

How did our nation come to this? By Mark Latham, in his maiden speech to the NSW Upper House.

How did our State and our nation ever come to this? I was on Folau’s list of sinners, more than once actually.

But as I don’t believe in Hell, there was no way I could take offence. Those claiming outrage have fabricated their position solely for the purpose of censorship. This is not an argument about diversity. …

Mark and his mentor

The left now champions discrimination and censorship, and runs away from worker’s rights:

No Australian should be fearful of proclaiming four of the most glorious words of our civilisation: I Am A Christian.

No one should be sacked by their employer for statements of genuine belief and faith that have got nothing to do with their job.

The Folau case exposes the new serfdom in the Australian workplace: how big companies, the corporate PC-elites are wanting to control all aspects of their employees’ lives — their religious and political views, how they speak and think, how they behave, even in their own time away from the workplace.

This is a stunning intrusion on workers’ rights. Yet far from condemning the new serfdom, Labor and the trade unions have been cheering it on. …

We are excluded from the left’s new Jerusalem:

Yet still, among the Leftist elites, among the social engineers and cultural dietitians, sneering at our civilisation and its achievements has become their new pastime.

They preach diversity but practice a suffocating cultural conformity, wanting everyone to be just like them.

They argue for inclusion but as soon as a Christian, a conservative, a libertarian, a nationalist, a working class larrikin, an outsider from the vast suburbs and regions of our nation disagrees with them, they crank up their PC “outrage machine to exclude them from society.” …

Final words:

Leftist curse through the ages: the recurring history of those who so badly crave control over others, they lose control over themselves. …

For those of us who believe in the virtues of Western civilisation, who treasure the advances and values of the Enlightenment … this is the fight of our lives. Our ethos, sir, is simple: No surrender. No surrender in any debate, in any institution, on any front. No surrender in trying to take back our country, That, Mr President, is why I’m here and what I’m fighting for.”
