High Court rules on new status for indigenous people

High Court rules on new status for indigenous people, by Olivia Caisley.

You’re not allowed to comment on whether the guy on the left, Brendan Thoms, looks aboriginal or white, according to the PC rules. Picture : ABC.

A landmark High Court ruling has found indigenous people — even those born overseas — cannot be considered “aliens” under the Constitution and deported on character grounds.

The 4-3 split decision on Tuesday was described by the Morrison government as creating “a new category of persons”, while constitutional lawyers said it could create “special rights or privileges” for Aboriginal people.

Two indigenous men who were born overseas and are not Australian citizens faced deportation after failing migration character tests as a result of committing separate violent assaults in Australia. …

The judgment was praised as affirming how Aboriginality should be recognised, and critic­ised as the “most radical instance of judicial activism in Australian history”. …

Law Council of Australia president Pauline Wright welcomed the decision, saying the finding flowed from the Mabo case of 1992. … Last year, the pair’s barrister, Stephen Keim, invoked Mabo, saying: “To remove Aboriginal Australians from the country would be another, if not worse, case of dispossession.’’ The High Court ordered the commonwealth to pay the men’s legal costs. …

Mr Love was sentenced in May 2018 to 12 months behind bars for assault occasioni­ng bodily harm. Mr Thoms was convicted of a domestic violence offence in ­September 2018, for which he received­ an 18-month sentence. …

While neither man holds Australian citizenship, each has an Australian parent and identifies as Aboriginal. Mr Love is a PNG citizen, and Mr Thoms a New Zealand citizen.

PC globalists in Australia’s legal circles have made an explicitly racist ruling. Very trendy, but very wrong.

They have different rules for different folks, depending on their race. The left — quite accurately — used to call this racism. Now that the left is making such rules and mores, “we don’t talk about that.” As Mr Obama would say, “this is not who we are.” Sure, we believe you 🙂 Naturally, anyone who disagrees with the left is still called a “racist.”
