Immigration an issue to Australian voters: yet our political class remains silent

While a recent poll has shown more than 50 % of Australian voters see the immigration problem for what it is, major parties remain lax on this issue. While the Coalition did stop the boats in 2013, little has been done in their 4 years of government to practically ease the rapid demographic and cultural… Continue reading Immigration an issue to Australian voters: yet our political class remains silent

Pauline Hanson wears burqa in the Australian Senate

Despite George Brandis’ crocodile tears, considering that political elites continually ignore this particular desire of Middle Australia, Pauline Hanson was right to raise attention to the women- enslaving, anti- Western burqa, while generating entertainment for her populist base along the way. Further, if our leaders had any respect for social cohesion and Australian culture, they… Continue reading Pauline Hanson wears burqa in the Australian Senate

Is ethnonationalism the way forward?

While much of the past 30 years has been dedicated towards building colourless societies, these attempts have often failed. After Nelson Mandela proclaimed his country to be a ‘rainbow nation’, recent decades have seen increasing hostility between South Africa’s white and black populations. Additionally, the 2008 election of Barrack Obama was supposed to symbolize the… Continue reading Is ethnonationalism the way forward?

The difference between One Nation and Australian Conservatives

After the recent merging between Australian Conservatives and Family First, some figures have suggested that One Nation should also move to join. But while some might perceive Pauline Hanson and Cory Bernardi’s political movements as indistinguishable, there are particular differences in their respective philosophies. As Bernardi is a staunch Roman Catholic and Family First have strong associations with the ACL,… Continue reading The difference between One Nation and Australian Conservatives

Welfare cuts bill killed off by One Nation

For a populist/ conservative politician looking to seek appeal amongst the broader electorate, this approach from One Nation is spot on. Radical economic liberals aside, who could dispute this reasoning used by One Nation? “Welfare cuts bill killed off by One Nation”, Sky News, 21 March, 2017: Pauline Hanson has killed off the federal government’s hopes of… Continue reading Welfare cuts bill killed off by One Nation

The relationship between foreign ownership and the United Nations

Pauline Hanson’s recent speech to the Senate on the importance of Australian ownership: Water should belong only to the Australian people. No-one has a right over it; it should not be bought and sold on the open market. We must protect our water rights. It is the lifeblood of this nation. Senator Hanson (Queensland) (12:53): I… Continue reading The relationship between foreign ownership and the United Nations

One Nation voters as likely to have deserted Labor as the Coalition

Not many know that the rise of One Nation actually damages the cause of traditionally ‘Left’ political parties, as much as it does for those on the ‘Right’. This domestic trend, as we saw in Trump’s win, Brexit, and in support for Le Pen, Wilders and other related figures, demonstrates how politics is moving away from traditional models.… Continue reading One Nation voters as likely to have deserted Labor as the Coalition

Pauline Hanson on why #WomensMarch is misaimed

I’m sure we’ve all heard of the massive marches that sprung up in America and across the world, which claimed to protest for ‘women’s rights’. Never mind that many of these protests have been funded by the anarchist enabling, society destabilising George Soros. Or that one of the leading protesters in America, Madonna, explicitly threatened that she… Continue reading Pauline Hanson on why #WomensMarch is misaimed

One Nation seeking the populist rage

Much of what aided the popularity of Donald Trump and other comparable movements, was their rebellious anti- establishment and anti- government themes. This concoction which has proved effective on numerous occasions, is now being employed by One Nation in targeting the excesses of pensions for politicians. And rightly so. Politicians already earn a salary far and above average Australians, so it is unjust for… Continue reading One Nation seeking the populist rage

Should Australia leave the United Nations?

Last month in his widely publicized maiden speech, One Nation Senator Malcolm Roberts called on Australia to leave the United Nations, whom he described as ‘unelected swill’ As along with his party’s differing perspectives on immigration, Islam and trade, so too has One Nation brought along unorthodox views in the field of foreign policy, leaving… Continue reading Should Australia leave the United Nations?
