There is a common characteristic that all extremists share – whether they be Communists/Socialists on the left or Fascists/Nazis on the right – and that is mastery of propaganda; they excel at telling outright lies that gullible people meekly accept.
And one propaganda technique used by all such extremists is to portray their opponents as being what they themselves are, so they can avoid being targeted with the same adverse claim.
We’ve seen this recently with Russian president Putin’s assertion that the Ukraine government is ruled by Nazis – despite the fact that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is Jewish and his grandfather even fought against the Nazis during WW2!
Given his actions, we can all see that the real ‘Nazi’ is Putin – but it suits his narrative to the Russian people to portray the enemy as Nazis.
We are seeing very much the same approach here in Australia with our Prime Minister and leading ‘Yes’ Voice campaigners portraying ‘No’ supporters as racists when in fact they are the real racists.
TheUnited Nation’s International Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination, to which Australia is a signatory, states the following: “Racial discrimination shall mean any distinction, exclusion or preference based on race, colour, descent, or national or ethnic origination.’
Our own Australian Human Rights Commission endorses this definition and overall objectives.
The proposed Voice very clearly provides ‘preference’ to the 3.3% of our population who claim to be indigenous. It would provide them with the opportunity to challenge any action proposed by the duly elected federal government. And if it is unsuccessful in its challenge, it can take the matter to the High Court for final deliberation.
If the Voice is included in our Constitution there is every likelihood that the High Court will rule in its favour. However, non-indigenous Australians are far less likely to win in the High Court on similar matters as they don’t have the backing of the Constitution, except in a minority of cases.
We could, therefore, experience a multitude of issues being challenged by this unelected body of individuals who comprise ‘The Voice’. This would undoubtedly include extremists like Noel Pearson, Marcia Langton, Thomas Mayo, Megan Davis and Lidia Thorpe.
And it’s abundantly clear to many of us that their real agenda is to disrupt society and create even greater racial division than has already been caused by their attempt to gain a great deal more taxpayer funding as well as a hugely disproportionate level of political power.
The real concern is that the latter would undoubtedly lead to permanent unrest within our country and the opportunity for left-wing extremists like the Greens to gain even greater political influence, as they have done in Germany and many other countries.
Prime Minister Tony Albanese likes to portray all that I’ve claimed in this article as merely fear-mongering with no substance. Well, I’m sure he likes to believe that – and he has a perfect right to do so. However, I sense that many people believe he has lost all credibility on this issue.
He has developed a well-deserved reputation for not getting across the details – not even reading the full 26-page Uluru Statement from the Heart. He has then tried to fool us with blatant untruths and cringe-worthy attempts to please everyone by saying one thing to one group and then totally the opposite to another.
We all saw this recently with his referral to the proposed treaty and reparations issue.
When we vote at the referendum, we will have the opportunity to write the word ‘No’ and stop all this nonsense before it gets out of control.
Please encourage everyone you know to vote and also support the ‘No’ campaigners at the booths. They need all the encouragement they can get.
