The far left’s race baiting has a purpose. The replacement of flags, the ubiquity of the so-called “welcome to country” ceremonies, the war against Australia Day, they are symbolic and spiritual attacks while this is the nuts and bolts. This is a bureaucratic weapon the woke left will wield to exercise real world power. …
The previous version crashed and burned in 2005:
We’ve tried this before. The Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander Commission (ATSIC) became a byword for criminal levels of corruption, nepotism and waste before it was disbanded in 2005. Establishing ATSIC 2.0 will reinforce the economic model of aboriginal identity politics — guilt whitey for more free gibs.
It is a terrible idea and should be opposed outright but the gutless Liberal Party will likely rubber stamp it. …
Changing our Constitution goes further than simply entrenching identity politics standover tactics. It would enshrine what would amount to an extra-parliamentary body, another arm of parliament, in our constitution in a manner never intended by Australia’s founding fathers.
Parliamentary democracy in Australia is already deeply compromised by a web of activist NGO’s and lobby groups pushing environmental, political, ethnic and sectarian interests. An aboriginal chamber of parliament would further bastardise our governmental structure.
Everything is an aboriginal issue nowadays:
When we consider the left’s love of the slippery slope the implications are even more dire. Australia is not the country it was in 2005. In the current year, everything is an aboriginal issue.
Education, policing, media, advertising, sport, mining, farming, our flag, anthem, national day, you name it, aboriginal identity politics has seeped into every aspect of our lives. There is no escape from it.
You cannot open a car door in Australia without having to thank an aboriginal.
In short order, every matter brought before parliament will require “consultation” from the “voice to parliament”. Its power will increase incrementally to the point that every matter brought before parliament will require ratification from the “voice to parliament”.
Eventually the “voice to parliament” will become the most powerful government body in the land. Any opposition will be dismissed as racist and in contravention of the Australian Constitution.
I think you see where I am going with this. The “voice to parliament” will eventually become the Central Committee of the People’s Socialist Republic of Australia, and whoever controls it will become the General Secretary.
Who will control “the voice”?
We’re kidding if we think aboriginals will control it.
Aboriginals comprise roughly 3.3% of the population, and many of them are city-based, university educated, politically motivated slightly aboriginals who have subverted aboriginal identity for their own ends.
The “voice to parliament” will push globalism and communism in Australia under the false banner of aboriginal victimhood.
The voice, like all their race based politics, is simply another road to power for the left.
