This week much attention has been on Coalition MPs and Senators hearing the vox populi following the ever-increasing demonstrations around Australia and demanding that the government do something to stop state premiers and territory chief ministers threatening people’s livelihoods and their ability to participate in everyday life with vaccine mandates and passports.
As Senator Matt Canavan told Paul Murray on Monday night on Sky (and I’m paraphrasing), if we don’t stand up now to this overreach, where will it end? Already these power-drunk premiers are talking of excluding kids as young as five from society if they don’t get the jab, thus completely sidelining those whose decision it should actually be: their parents – and no one else’s. And that is not just me saying that. Dr Nick Coatsworth has said it, too, in the clearest possible way.
Who is it hateful toward? You know who. The modern American regime is built on explicit, institutionalized hostility to the people who most resemble the great Americans of the past. It is anti-white, anti-male, anti-Christian, anti-rural, and anti-middle class. The more of these traits a person has, the more worthy of hate they become. The more the Globalist American Empire decays and squanders the inheritance it was given, the more bile and hatred it directs against those who symbolize what came before.
But those on the receiving end of this new discriminatory regime may not appreciate its full scope or the ultimate fate that the Globalist American Empire has planned for them. They may see recent anti-white animus as a temporary spell, or a limited affair that can be waited out.
Dorsey is not alone. The number of corporations that backed the cause—and continue to support it—is dizzying. IBM, Microsoft, Amazon, Target, Walmart, Home Depot, T-Mobile, Uber, Facebook, Apple, Intel, the list goes on and on. PayPal announced it would earmark $530 million to “provide immediate financial relief, sustained support and long-term investment to expand economic opportunity for Black and underrepresented minority businesses and communities.” Citigroup published a study that put the “cost of black inequality” in the United States at $16 trillion.
Many of these same corporations have aligned themselves against right-wing populism specifically and Middle Americans in general. A single, solitary riot on January 6 by Trump supporters provoked their purge from the internet, the financial strangulation of allied lawmakers, the denial of services to both, the shuttering of bank accounts, and more. All, ironically, under the pretense of combating extremism—a justification the industry managers most recently used to quell an online populist revolt.
In broad terms, the legislation is plugging a serious gap in legal protections in Australia against unjust discrimination. Of the 9 jurisdictions around the country (the States, the Territories and the Commonwealth), 6 of them already prohibit religious discrimination. NSW, SA (except in relation to “religious dress”) and the Commonwealth (apart from some provisions relating to employment in the Fair Work Act 2009) do not have such laws at the moment. So in NSW today, you would be perfectly within your rights to run a café and put up a sign outside saying “We do not serve Buddhists” or “Muslims” or “Christians”. (Jewish and Sikh people are protected under the “ethno-religious” category of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1975 but other religions are not). So as a matter of simple fairness we should have a general law on the topic, and the best thing would be to have a clear law that applies across the country.
