Senators shocked – shocked! – by woman speaking the truth

Pauline Hanson slammed by senators over ‘Closing the Gap’ remarks.

Senators were left in shock following Pauline Hanson’s remarks about Aboriginal people in parliament yesterday.


SENATE Hansard, WEDNESDAY, 12 FEBRUARY 2020.

Senator HANSON (Queensland) (18:52): I spoke about this issue 24 years ago when I was first elected to the House of Representatives. It wasn’t called Closing the Gap back then, but again we threw countless billions at the very same problems we’re talking about today. What’s changed since I first raised those issues? Nothing. We still have Aboriginal kids not going to school. The wonderful air-conditioned school in Doomadgee has around 400 students enrolled, but they’re barely able to roll-call 50 per cent of students on any given day. They’ve got just one child in the whole school with a 100 per cent attendance record. Whose fault is that? Lazy parents. You can’t blame the whites when it’s your own negligence. We can throw all the money in the world at building these schools, with three meals a day for $2 to make sure Aboriginal kids are given a wholesome meal while they’re at school, but, if they don’t turn up, how do they get ahead in life? We’re also bribing parents with payments to send their kids to school, but even that’s not working.

 
Labor and the Greens – who believe all Aborigines are retarded non-adults who cannot be considered morally responsible for their actions – want Senator Hanson to be legally prohibited from making any statements of this truthful kind ever again:


Pauline Hanson is branded a ‘racist’ after claiming Aboriginal people are disadvantaged because of ‘their own negligence’.

Labor frontbencher Jenny McAllister said Senator Hanson’s speech was not OK.

‘Her racist comments – and they are racist – have no place in this chamber,’ she told the upper house.

Greens Senate leader Larissa Waters apologised to anyone listening to Senator Hanson, saying a code of conduct was needed to stop hate speech in parliament.

‘It’s the racism that we’ve come to expect from her and her party,’ she said.

‘They don’t reflect the sentiment of this chamber or vast majority of Australians.’

 
If given the opportunity to read her remarks rather than have them abbreviated by shock-jocks to more easily encourage vilification, I doubt a “vast majority” of people would disagree with anything she said.

    And where are the stupid fucking Liberals in this….probably hiding under their desks or actively siding with the Green left scum.

    Hanson is so used to this kind of verbal sludge and is so used to this kind of pile on from Green left fascist scum…it is like water of a duck’s back to her because she has endured over twenty years of it.

    Could somebody please define “racist” for me.

    Someone who can win an argument with an Aboriginal.

  5. Rusty of Qld

    Many moons ago I said to a young indigenous woman,over a coffee, knowing she worked in aboriginal affairs ” we are all equal citizens with equal rights and the big one they don’t want is equal responsibilities”. She sat in thought quietly and made no remark. As she dealt with indigenous communities and experienced on a first hand basis the circumstances in the communities and whom it is that creates them at the grass roots level, I wonder if she ever reflects on rights and responsibilities.

  6. duncanm

    worth reading the comments on the articles at both links.

    Very few disagree with Pauline.

  7. candy

    Ms Hanson cares about the plight of the children in certain communities. Caring is not racist.

    The others are just patting themselves on the back about a closing the gap booklet until next year when they can do it again, and put the issues out of their minds because it is too difficult for them.

    It’s as if the making the booklet each year is a policy and end itself.

  8. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    Could somebody please define “racist” for me.

    Anyone who:

    – Is winning an argument with a collectivist
    – Makes a collectivist look like an imbecile
    – States the bleeding obvious about the utter failure of every collectivist idea/policy/brain fart ever inflicted on some or all of the populace

  9. H B Bear

    I’m sure the Aboriginal Industry will say one more shift of the goal posts will solve the problem.

    Constitutional recognition?

  10. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    What’s Hanson’s point? It’s well known that there are deep social problems in many Aboriginal communities. It’s also well known that some of them have taken great strides to improve them – like to women at Fitzroy Crossing shutting down the grog (though it seems the WA Government wants to restore it). It’s also true that the so-called “intervention” wrecked the progress of the community in Nhulunbuy and undid the street patrols at night that were keeping kids out of the wrong places.
    Does Hanson suggest that schools in these places be shut? Or what, exactly? Cheap antics don’t helkp anyone.

  11. liliana

    ” we are all equal citizens with equal rights and the big one they don’t want is equal responsibilities”.

    I have also said this for years only to have people try and shout me with cries of racism. Well I don’t give a toss – rights come with responsibilities. Its about time the UN had a Universal Declaration of Human Responsibilities.

  12. Robber Baron

    Gimmeee gimmee more money! That’s the correct solution to all abbaringal problems.

    More money! They don’t want to work and earn a living. They don’t want to get up in the morning and look after their children. That’s what whitey’s money is for.

    There’s never enough money for these hucksters to piss up against a wall whitey paid for.

    The obvious solution is to do the 180 degree opposite of what the government is currently doing.

  13. Iampeter

    Yes, Hanson slams identity politics, while advocating identity politics in next breath.
    Do conservatives and their derivative groups even hear themselves?

    This is what I mean.
    Conservatives have hit rock bottom so profoundly that any attempt to discuss pretty much any issue ends up being a BabylonBee/Onion parody.

  14. Infidel Tiger

    Aboriginal disadvantage will soon be completely overcome.

    So many white people are pretending to be Abos it is almost fixed as it is.

    By the next census most of our Abos will live in the inner city, have arts degrees and be gainfully employed in academia.

    Fuck those pretend Abos who live out bush and won’t get with the program.

  15. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Constitutional recognition?

    Constitutional recognition, a treaty with each of five hundred or so “First Nations”, massive payments in “compensation” and “reparations” and a sovereign Aboriginal State.

  16. Lee

    Cheap antics don’t helkp [sic. ] anyone.

    Saying the truth is “cheap antics” now?

    For Pete’s sake!

    I don’t see her critics and haters on the left doing a thing to help the situation, except giving Aborigines an alibi – “it’s all whiteys fault!”

  17. calli

    What’s Hanson’s point?

    Vast amounts of money are being spent unwisely.

  18. Tel

    Hanson operates a protest party, and she is good at identifying the sort of things that upset people. This is a useful service, if the major parties were left to themselves they would ignore the issue completely and focus on bigger budgets, better pork and pocket stuffing … which is the natural inclination of all politicians.

    The fact that Hanson doesn’t have workable solutions does not matter because she will never be a major party.

  19. Blair

    “What’s Hanson’s point?”
    “It’s well known that there are deep social problems in many Aboriginal communities”
    Elderly White Man From Skipton, what is your point?

  20. Nick

    What ‘social problems may stop an indigenous parent from sending their child to school on a regular basis ?

  21. candy

    Does Hanson suggest that schools in these places be shut? Or what, exactly? Cheap antics don’t helkp anyone.

    I believe she is suggesting personal responsibility might help. So many children born with FAS, I think still the highest rate in the world? and so many kids with STDs.

    who do we blame for that?

  22. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    The fact that Hanson doesn’t have workable solutions

    Yes, stating that useless drunken drug addled child abusing morons should finally take some responsibility for their actions, instead of spending the entirety of their pointless existences hoovering other peoples’ money, is indeed an unworkable solution.

    After all, the collectivist industrial complex decreed personal responsibility to be out of fashion decades ago.

    PHON polling in QLD currently at 15%.

  24. Infidel Tiger

    I feel incredibly sorry for real Aboriginals.

    They have been the canary in the coalmine for every mad lefty and righty scheme for the last 100 years.

    They are nothing but political and sociological plaything for busybodies and nutters.

  25. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    What ‘social problems may stop an indigenous parent from sending their child to school on a regular basis ?

    Seems it’s not unknown for children to be kept out of school, for fear of “losing their culture.”

  26. Roger

    They are nothing but political and sociological plaything for busybodies and nutters.

    Abetted by politicians. SloMo now appears to be completely under the spell of the weird Ken Wyatt.

  27. CameronH

    As usual the LNP goes missing. Everything Pauline says is correct but the LNP, the stupid cowards party, just goes into hiding. They had a great victory last year and since then have done their usual trick of either swerving left or running for cover when they should go on the attack. What a bunch of hopeless incompetents.

    If the reactionary regressives on the left call you a racist, you know you’ve hit upon the truth.
    On the one hand, Aborigines are being encouraged – nay, implored, even borderline ordered – by activists to maintain their traditional beliefs and lifestyles and not succumb to evil Western plots like integration. This necessarily means rejecting modern non-Aboriginal traditions like sending your child to school….every day….five days a week….with homework on the weekends…and copping sanctions for failure to attend or complete coursework. Is it any wonder that remote communities are confused as to what they are supposed to do: remain “uneducated” (in the Western sense – they are/were highly educated in the tribal survival sense) like the activists want, or assimilate with modern society like the rest of the nation advises them to do. The only way the stats will improve is if remote communities fully integrate with modern society and retain tribal culture for the weekends (after the kids have finished homework). City Aborigines do this already.

    Precisely the point of this article – Sen Hanson’s comments were definitely NOT racist since a failure of responsibility is not defined by any sort of racial marker.

  35. Daniel

    Interesting reads, thanks for posting

  36. Robbo

    Racist is just a nasty slur used by the crazy lefties in the Labor Party and the Greens to shut down those that speak the real truth about aborigines. All sensible Australians would agree with what Pauline Hanson said in the Senate on Feb 12 and only the politically blind idiots would object. I’m sick and tired of sensible people being demonised for speaking the truth on the issues like aboriginal affairs and migration.

    Doesn’t matter how big a ship is if you’re not interested in turning it anyway.
    Hanson, her supporters, most conservatives, Trump and his supporters, etc, are all advocates of a collectivist industrial complex.

    Just fighting over the technicalities like which collective should be the one calling the shots.

    Also, Hanson, her supporters, most conservatives, Trump and his supporters, etc, seem to need this explained. Progressives don’t.
    That’s the real problem.

  41. Rococo Liberal

    McCallister and the Greens should nopw resign or be chucked out the Senate for daring to be evil commie twats.

  42. Botswana O'Hooligan

    The problem is worsening if anything and has been increasing since the missionaries left and the State took control. Doomadgee, a pitiful place with a good school as stated but hardly anyone attends, ditto Mornington, not even the Police are game to leave an aeroplane parked there overnight because it will get trashed or burnt, Mitchell River, now Kowanyama not much better, Edward River called Pormpuraaw ditto, Aurukun perhaps the worst by far and away but since the Govt. control the media access and the access of anyone else for that matter, the public never get to hear of it. Bamaga reasonable fair, basically Islanders evacuated from Saibai just at the end of WW2 because it was supposedly sinking but hasn’t and won’t, Lockhart River (iron Range) probably the best of them all, never trouble there and only a token few cops. Hopevale, largest collection of late model Toyota FWD’s north of Cairns and Townsville, dunno about Bloomfield because there is no aerodrome there. Yarrabah has it’ moments but is the best place to catch a ‘barra in FNQ is in the enclosed waters off the place because the locals are not worried about fishing or anything much else for that matter and white folk are denied access. Pauline is spot on, our taxpayer money in the billions is thrown at them all to no or very little avail because they won’t help themselves. looking at the average person anywhere, not just our aboriginals, would they work or even try very hard to do something if a never ending supply of loot that met their basic needs came their way? They mostly wouldn’t and therein lies the main problem.

    right.. heavily skewed by those Aboriginals actually making something of their lives in real society.

    The numbers for remote communities not so great (though better than I expected). ~65% (Indig.) vs. ~90% (non-Indig.)

  46. Tim Neilson

    Including many who are affluent, urban, multi-generational westernised, and have only very distant actual indigenous ancestry, but identify as indigenous.

  47. Jock

    We always talk about that $30 billion per year. But in reality it is scarfed down by public servants, “part Indiginous”, Indiginous elites, lawyers, etc etc. I recall Jenny Maklin who although ALP had a decent go. She was stunned to learn that $10 mil budgeted to build some homes in one community was gone with only 2 houses built. The planners, public servants, meetings, architects, social workers et al had trousered most of the money. And that is the big problem.

    The Indiginous elites see this and immediately want their hands on this moolah! Why should whitey do nothings get it when black do nothings are just as capable!!

  48. David Brewer

    Pauline Hanson is branded a ‘racist’ after claiming Aboriginal people are disadvantaged because of ‘their own negligence’.

    There’s always some sleight of hand going on to make these charges of “racism”.

    In this case, the work is done by the misleading headline. What Pauline said was:

    The wonderful air-conditioned school in Doomadgee has around 400 students enrolled, but they’re barely able to roll-call 50 per cent of students on any given day. They’ve got just one child in the whole school with a 100 per cent attendance record. Whose fault is that? Lazy parents.

    So what she said was that children are being disadvantaged because they are not going to school regularly, and that this is the parents’ fault. More or less anyone would agree with that in more or less any other circumstances. You have to twist it somehow to make it seem racist. The headline does this by lumping the students and their parents into a single unit so that Pauline appears to be saying that both parents and children are only disadvantaged because of THEIR own fault.

    One wonders if this is stupidity or dishonesty. At any rate, it’s a typical pattern. All you’ve got to do is pretend that a critic is motivated by who the criticised person is instead by what he or she is doing and hey presto, the criticism is racist, sexist, homophobe, transphobe, I$lamophobe etc etc.

  49. Judge Dredd

    I’ve always had a soft spot for Pauline Hanson given her plain telling of truth. Good on her that she keeps up the truth even when these people try to shame and silence her. She has more grit than most people.

  50. Radman

    Probably paywalled, but a great read about how a young Tiwi man was saved from horrendous social circumstances to become a cult hero. His childhood was one continuous nightmare of neglect and deprivation. His success met with envy and attempts to extort money from by guilt.

    Girls sue to block participation of transgender athletes

    Families of three female high school runners have filed a federal lawsuit seeking to block transgender athletes in Connecticut, USA from participating in girls sports.

    Selina Soule, a senior at Glastonbury High School, Chelsea Mitchell, a senior at Canton High School and Alanna Smith, a sophomore at Danbury High School are represented by the conservative non-profit organisation Alliance Defending Freedom.

    They argue that allowing athletes with male anatomy to compete has deprived them of track titles and scholarship opportunities.

    “Mentally and physically, we know the outcome before the race even starts,” said Smith, who is the daughter of former Major League pitcher Lee Smith.

    “That biological unfairness doesn’t go away because of what someone believes about gender identity. All girls deserve the chance to compete on a level playing field.”

    Do conservatives and their derivative groups even hear themselves?

    The whole issue of Aboriginal society and special privileges is about “identity politics.”

    That doesn’t and should never make it off-limits.

  57. Mique

    I was surprised to hear Andrew Bolt condemning Senator Pauline Hanson for “going too far”. He was very critical of her for, in his opinion, implying that “all” Aborigines were not taking responsibility for their problems. In my opinion, he totally misinterpreted Senator Hanson’s statement. Sure, it was possible to infer that she blamed “all” Aborigines, but only if, obtusely, like Bolt, one completely ignored the context of her remarks.
    She was not talking about “all” Aborigines. She was not talking about those who were accepting their responsibilities like most citizens regardless of ethnicity. She was talking only about the dysfunctional communities.
    Bolt owes her an apology.

  58. candy

    I admire Ms Hanson for this. She has not gone too far because she cares about what’s happening to certain communities and the children particularly. this is good.

    Now, wearing the burqa in Parliament was silly. I mean, that mode of dress is kind of repugnant but if the ladies want to wear it, that’s okay because religious freedom etc. I don’t think her actions on that day were for the best.
    But a lot of times she says what people think and worry about and encourages debate. A good thing for a politician of any stripe.

  59. David Brewer

    Greens Senate leader Larissa Waters apologised to anyone listening to Senator Hanson, saying a code of conduct was needed to stop hate speech in parliament.

    Ain’t it typical? The arrogance and presumption of apologising for someone else. The mindless allegation of “hate speech” when only delinquent behaviour is being condemned. And the attack on freedom of speech in Parliament – a pillar of our Constitutional heritage for 330 years – the minute Waters hears something she disagrees with. The Greens really are an obnoxious lot, and a threat to freedom on so many levels.

  60. Lee

    All Greens should apologise for existing.

  61. jupes

    Bolt owes her an apology.

    I reckon. His criticism of her was so lame and as you say, out of context. Then he went on to agree with her on the substance. He reckons that her statement opened an avenue for the Green and Labor senators to criticise her. Seriously? As if they don’t use the same critisisms against his supposedly more measured tones.

    Incoherent is the best way to describe it.

  62. BorisG

    The fact that Hanson doesn’t have workable solutions does not matter because she will never be a major party.

    But if she did have it others might listen and take notice.

  63. Big Nana

    In my 50 years of living with aboriginal people I can honestly say that the most racist people I know are part aboriginals. Full bloods get along well with whites for the most part but some of those with only a small amount of aboriginal DNA hate everyone who doesn’t fall in with their agenda. They were much happier 40/50 years ago when they didn’t identify as aboriginal but as coloured, accepting that they had two or more heritages, thus forming a separate group from full bloods and not having to compete in the same arena. They need to return to that acceptance.

    Bolt has developed ‘Stockholm Syndrome’.

    It is sad but understandable, given his ordeal over the last decade or so, but no less forgivable.

    Best he just remain silent while others take up the fight for truth, rather than actively aide the enemies of it.

  65. Dasher

    I know its overdone but the definition of madness remains the person who does the same thing time after time and expects a different result. The somewhat inarticulate and folksy Hansen may not be the slickest politician around but she runs rings around those virtue signalling dopes who prefer form over substance. More power to her arm.

  66. Hugh

    Pauline – yes, but no, but yes. Australia’s aborigines are not intrinsically lazy. They’re lazy in the same learned way that Eskimos, Negroes and Red Indians are lazy (pardon the quaint terminology … I’m way too lazy to research the PC equivalents as of this morning.)

    They’ve got the message: “You lot will get piles of other peoples’ money thrown at you if you just sit around and, if you like, drink and rape kids.”

    Their response is profoundly understandable and predictable – if utterly soul-destroying. As Keith Windschuttle and others have pointed out, the vast majority of Australian aborigines live ordinary lives in towns and cities alongside you and me. They send their kids to school just like everyone else. (Actually, schools these days are themselves a festering sore, ideology-wise, but let’s not go there.)

    We’d solve most of the problems, including the schooling issue honestly raised by Pauline, if we

    1. Turned off the tap – ie withdrew all government funding of “remote communities” and all discriminatory subsidies to aborigines.

    2. Make the individual citizens decide to A. stay out there and try to come up with a viable way of life for them and their families, whether by modern commercial enterprise or authentic – no, really authentic – unsubsidized traditional subsistence and lifestyle. The sort that’s hosannahed by lefties – which actually involves spears in thighs, teeth knocked out at initiation, the women eating what’s left over by the dogs, bizarre and horrific sexual practices that I won’t go into here, no modern medicine or transport or guns, or TVs, etc, or B. integrate with contemporary Western Australian society.

    P.S. I’m not extolling Western Australian society hereby. Everything is relative. The fact that as a community we are still wringing our hands over this obviously entirely manufactured problem and spending a scintilla of energy parsing the evils of Pauline is symptomatic of something deeply rotten in our own ship.

  69. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    So Hanson says most Aboriginal kids don’t go school and waste taxpayers money. Yet it seems most such kids do go to school. Yet people here still think Hanson is right to make that false accusation against an entire race of people, kids.
    Really, some people here need to get a life. This is all utter bullshit. (Especially the duk flying above who thinks Aboriginals are stupid, therefore disadvantaged.

  70. Judge Dredd

    Maybe the aboriginals have it right here. Perhaps they have figured out that school is not about education, but indoctrination and programming.

  71. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Judge Dredd: you ignoring the facts. Aboriginal kids are mostly going to school. The Hanson claims are fake.

  72. CharlieP

    Nowhere in the statement above does Hanson say that ‘most’ Aboriginal kids don’t go to school. She says that ‘We still have aboriginal kids not going to school.’ Not the same thing at all. No accusation against an entire race of people. Claims not fake.

  73. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Charlie, you really have got to be kidding. She said (above): We still have Aboriginal kids not going to school. The wonderful air-conditioned school in Doomadgee has around 400 students enrolled, but they’re barely able to roll-call 50 per cent of students on any given day. She then bangs on about how “they don’t turn up”.
    Of course it’s an accusation about Aboriginals. And it is wrong.It is pissweak and ignorant, she making no effort at all to make a useful point. She might as well sit there and fart all day.

    That bloody woman again , She will destroy the huge aboriginal industry built up by caring politicians . She will also upset aboriginal mendicants of all colours ,its not socialist justice and fairness . There needs to be a vetting system for senators to keep populist racist islamophobic homophobic anti fairness people out.
