The Folly of an Australia Day Alternative

Scott

Yesterday, Scott Morrison proposed we launch an alternative to Australia Day, to celebrate Indigenous achievements, while maintaining our traditional national holiday.

But our Prime Minister along with his well-intentioned, yet negligent racially averse colleagues, is seriously mistaken.

By seeking a unity where many Aboriginals and their radical enablers don’t wish to, this change won’t work.

There are already many days, weeks and festivals dedicated to Aboriginal heritage: corporate virtue signalling, welfare and education benefits, in addition to affirmative action. Amidst these appeasement-oriented policies, there are no signs of growing national harmony nor any which indicate likely future improvements. For appeasement, as Winston Churchill said, “is like feeding the crocodile, hoping it will you eat you last.”

Rather than pursue a path of dead end denialism, we need to honestly explain the point in celebrating Australia Day, to coherently justify its future existence.

As correctly judged by anti-Australia Day protestors, this is a day for white identity, history, and people. This country was founded by British settlers and from scant settlement, was built into a revered, renowned country. It should thus be uncontroversial that the nation’s founding stock should have a day to celebrate European settlement.

Until we can overcome this taboo and re-embrace the ethnocultural heritage deeply embedded into the core of Australia Day, present momentum will inevitably grow too powerful.

On that note, what of the consequences for identitarians that shall follow unless conservatives muster up a more rooted, strident defence of Australia Day?

Broadly speaking, changing Australia Day would signal we openly resent our country’s roots, and believe our national existence resides upon a white supremacist, evil founding. This premise would severely constrain any positive national identity, and from there, any substantive type of nativist, nationalist or even patriotic sentiment. One only needs consider post-World War Two Germans to recognise this– when a people despise their past, they voluntarily relinquish their desires for present and future survival.

  1. How many generations need to be born in any country before a person that generation is considered part of that country. Being descendants settlers/invaders whatever historical ancestry does not mean responsibility or “their”actions is transferable. At some point in history every people was an settler/invader. When are the “sins” of the forebears forgiven and when are descendants considered naturalized inhabitants? Why couldn’t Australia day be considered a day of celebration of the the Country as a whole, people, culture, history and future? Why should we look for divisive point scoring, designed only to isolate and exacerbate social tensions, when inclusive, respectful and tolerant actions and behavior elevate the spirit of everyone as a whole?

    1. These are all good questions, to which the anti-white Leftists have offered very little in the way of legitimate responses. I ultimately think this fuss about ‘racism’ and Australia’s past, which justifies further pushes towards a state of racial ‘equality’ is a very misleading one. To them, abolishing Australia Day is a mere step towards a future where whites pay tribute and live in complete servitude to POC’s. They aren’t remotely interested in fairness; and given the reality of this opposition, neither should we be all that invested in achieving some sort of objective fairness for all peoples.

    1. They’ll be very sorry one day, that I can tell you. When there’s no one to save the whales, the environment or the refugees, they’ll be sorry they were so hard on the whites!
