Pauline Hanson’s ‘All Lives Matter’ Motion Was Absolutely Savaged In The Senate. By Stewart Perrie.
One Nation leader Pauline Hanson tried to introduce a motion to the Australian Senate yesterday (June 11) to recognise that ‘All Lives Matter’ …
Nearly every single senator voted against the motion.
There were two ‘ayes’, one from the One Nation leader and another from One Nation politician Malcolm Roberts. There were 51 senators who opposed the motion and one, Senator Jim Molan, who opposed voting on it. …
Labor’s Senate leader Penny Wong thought the motion ‘wasn’t appropriate’ because it was only trying to ‘incite division’.
“Asserting black lives matter isn’t saying that other lives do not matter,” Wong told the Senate.
“It is responding to a systemic structural problem where black lives are not given equal value.”
So try another motion Pauline: Not All Lives Matter. If the Australian Senate doesn’t believe that “all lives matter,” then they must believe that “not all lives matter.” Put it to the vote — make them own it.
Or move a motion that “all lives are of equal value” or some such if that’s what they really believe.
