Marieke Hardy encounters flag-bearing youths at an outdoor concert:
Boy oh boy, the amount of idiotic sunburned children draping themselves in flags with no real reason as to why they were making such a provocative statement.
Note: they weren’t burning flags. They were merely wearing them. This, to the Left, is “provocative”.
I grew increasingly cross, even without alcohol coursing through my veins and turning me into the kind of screeching harpy best left alone in the corner of a pub dry-humping the pinball machine.
Me: Nice flag, fuckhead.
Moron child: Whatever.
Me: Why are you even wearing that? Do you have any idea what you’re doing?
Moron child: Aussie pride, man.
Me: Go and die.
Traceeee Hutchison should address this matter of flag rage in her next column.
UPDATE. Tolerant Marieke, who wishes young flag-wearers would “go and die”, regularly appears in the Age and on the ABC.
UPDATE II. Nic wonders how Marieke would react to similar abuse of someone wearing an Aboriginal flag. Consider, too, how she’d judge a clothing-related exchange beginning with the line: “Nice burka, fuckhead”.
