Australia day

Last updated on March 6th, 2018 at 12:31 am

Whoa! Almost out of time to run an Australia Day post, featuring our chilling gang colours:

Fear us, world! Apologies for not posting earlier; work, etc.

UPDATE. Not everybody enjoyed Australia Day. Keith Mobbs, for example, promised to spend the day with “the nearest Aboriginal group, mourning the invasion of their land”:

As a “true, caring Australian”, how can Keith describe himself as an “Australian”? He’s nothing but the descendent of invaders, and should go back to where he belongs.

UPDATE II. Further frightening flaggery via Andrew Bolt:

    1. From ‘the australia day poem’ at the australian

      Our multi tribal nation
      further resisted cultural assimilation
      yet we lived together all year without a war.
      Progressive thought stopped
      in a mucus of leftwing pride.
      Political correctness was diagnosed
      as a compulsive obsessive disorder.
      It continued unabated
      hating itself for knowing its denial.

      Phillip Adams emerged from a long dry drunk
      parading as a humanist genius
      from a heartfelt, authentic, softleft
      post modern reasonableness.
      He demanded the decriminalization of drugs

      The ecological aborigine bit the dust
      and the noble savage was filled with lust.
      Great wealth has come from the ambit claim
      the dispossessed have harvested
      a massive paddock sewn with shame
      and the intellectual vanity of a Jesuit priest.

      the australia day poem

      hope everyone had a bloody bonza day

      It would have been the french, dutch, belgians or germans.  Possibly japs, russians or chinese.

    1. Mobbs is a typical example of a PC fool who despises the nation we have created here.  Sure, it’s not perfect but it’s damn close to the best in the world, if not the best.

      What’s the bet that he doesn’t actually know anyone with aboriginal ancestry?  I know quite a few and it is fucking insulting to assume that they all “mourn” the fact that they are living in the modern world.

      Most Australians would desperately like to improve the lot of Aboriginees who are still living in squalor, mainly in remote communities.  But we recognise that the problem is not easy to solve.  It needs a lot of time and massive cultural change – including stable domestic arrangements, taking responsibility and valuing the education of children.

      Most urban people people of Aboriginal descent are not too different to the rest of us.  They are mostly proud of their heritage but they basically want the same things that we all do.  To say that the European invasion (eventually) expanded the horizons of Aboriginal people is an understatement, to say the least!  Unlike Mobbs, they generally don’t piss and moan on about the “invasion”.

Just returned to the US Tuesday from my first-ever, all-too-brief visit to your fair land.  Mrs. Pooh and I had a marvelous time, and wish all and sundry a happy belated Australia Day.  It’s a pity Mr. Mobbs wasn’t with us on our seaplane flight.  I would have liked to confirm our altitude (nominally 1,000 feet) by measuring the time it would have taken him to complete a triple twisting half gainer off Manly Beach.

      Great people.  Great wine.  Great beer (Little Creatures).  Great display of gang colors.  Thanks to all, and we will be back.

      That was what I thought at first, too. However, after spending about an hour checking that out (purely in the interests of science, of course), I can say “no”. The green comes out as reddish, and the yellow comes out as blue, the reverse of the Union Jack. Using the “negative” effect of any graphics program verifies that.

      Unfortunately the Kalgoorlie miner doesnt have an on line version but the 4 comments they had from RSL blokes were all basicly “He should have been shot, let him rot”.

      That just cost him a plethora of votes up here, I only hope Krudd tries the same line.

    1. I am surprised that nobody has noticed this so far, but on close examination I would say that the first photo is actually a reverse image.

      ARE YOU ALL DISTRACTED OR SOMETHING?

    1. # 78 thats a common misconception. flags of course actually have two sides. so we are merely seeing the reverse ie a flag on a poll moving from left to right.

      incidentally ozzie national colours were blue and gold until bob hawke changed them to green and gold forgetting that south africa already used these colours. (they being banned at the time from most international sport).

    1. Is it possible that Islamist terrorist who want to destroy Western freedoms just, y’know, haven’t seen these pictures yet?

    1. Keith Mobbs will be mourning with a group of Aborigines, I hope he brings his own carton or he will be mourning the loss of a few teeth.

    1. Drat – I’m late!  Happy belated Australia Day to you.

    1. Did anyone else here see the fireworks in Sydney down at Darling Harbour?

      They were just wonderful

      I’ve never seen so many flags around – there must be some high level teeth grinding going on by those elitists who hate the idea of this – patriotism – a dirty word for them

      I thought is was great but then again I’m an ignorant Lib voting Westie

    1. Is that the Northern District Times carrying the Keith Mobbs letter?  There are some tedious letter-writers to that paper.

    1. #83, aussiemagpie, no, but I did see the fireworks at Parramatta Park.  Lots of flags there too, mostly being waved by immigrant families.  A good time was had by all.

    1. #79 Perhaps you a right, Astonished.  Although the seam does not appear to be the inside on the outside if you know what I mean.

      This requires an even closer examination…..I wonder what colour her eyes are?

    1. God has provided.
      We Aussie men will have to make do with such women folk when we replenish the earth following the coming catastrophe.
      Tough, but someone has to do it.

      Gotta say, I was amazed at the display of patriotism here, especially by the young people!
      I saw a guy proudly showing his three year old an Aussie flag.
      I saw groups of young people all draped in the Aussie flag, proudly walking around and singing, carrying on.
      Man, I haven’t seen such patriotism on display in Sydney, well, ever.
      Great Australia day.

      The next generation is tough and patriotic.
      Bloody marvellous!

    1. Mike_W—that’s a part of this a lot of folks overlook. The ‘peacelovers’ aren’t reproducing.

    1. #65 S.C.D.-

      The Italian soccer team is the “Azurri”, but of course there is no blue in their flag.

      I must also say, Australia never looked so good.  Happy day to all down under!

    1. Just to ruin all the celebrations by the unthinking peasants, I heard on ‘our ABC’ that they are having yet another program examining ‘the wrangle over Australian Values’.
      To these Government-paid intelligentsia our values are all very unclear

    1. HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY (belated)!!!

      Just back from personal growth retreat, this is the first thing I read–& like RebeccaH, my dad was dreaming of the Land Down Under, too. Mum nixed that particular move (maybe the only time), so we went to the Great White North instead. I feel quite a kinship & am proud to drink your health (with sparkling cider, so no hangover, sorry).
