Constitutional recognition? Cathartic for conservatives, a gift for GULAG

Why does GULAG need to win elections when SM’s team does all the heavy lifting for us anyway?

CBD can’t believe the good fortune for GULAG – Green, union, Labor and GetUp – supporters. Having lost the election GULAG is still having its agenda implemented unabated by the hapless SM Team.

Not only is the cleverly disguised (some might say cross-dressed) society destroying transgender agenda known as celebrating diversity and inclusion being adopted by the Sports Minister we now have the Minister for Indigenous Australians firmly on board as well. His embrace of the GULAG wrecking ball of Constitutional change to embrace identity politics, race division and white guilt is staggeringly unbelievable. Even MT wouldn’t touch it. This issue is the mother – oops – parental unit or nurturer of all political correctness.

Dressed up in PC language of ‘reconciliation ‘ (thankfully no one has asked what that actually means, but hey it sounds good) and ‘social justice’ it cannot be opposed without allowing us to condemn the opponent as a ‘racist’ and there is no recovery from that tag! Simply a brilliant strategy.

CBD revels, indeed wallows, in the thought of the hard right frothing at the mouth. Wishing to tear down their own emoting Minister yet restricted by their conservative decencies.

The stomach muscles can hardly bear it. The laughter in Camp GULAG is irrepressible.

The hard right will be busily dreaming up counter-arguments to Constitutional recognition of Indigenous Australians along the tawdry old lines of ‘all people are equal’ (haven’t they read George Orwell? Some people are more equal than others.). Or their other furphies like people should be judged on the content of their character and not the colour of their skin. Or that our – oops – their National Anthem proclaims ‘Australians all…’ suggesting we are all one and united regardless of background.

But how cleverly constructed was Comrade Wyatt’s speech; the emotion (setting aside the need for sound argument) of how he accepted his ministry with a two minute silence because it was the Ministry for Indigenous Australians and not Indigenous Affairs. Truly ground breaking. Truly touching … and so difficult for the hard right to attack.

(Shhh! Please don’t tell the ministers responsible for community affairs, veterans or multicultural affairs or they might start thinking their constituencies are in need of constitutional recognition as well because they aren’t real Australians.)

There will be the hard right smart Alec’s as well who will seek to appeal to the great unwashed condemning identity politics with propaganda such as “can a tall, left handed, brown skinned, dark eyed, long haired woman represent a short, right handed, white skinned, green eyed, balding man? So will we have a special voice for all those categories as well? If not why not?” See the problem when you try and introduce logic into the debate?

With this issue we must remain resolute and raise the debate above logic, above principle and above the consequences, and recognise the true aim is to divide the community to enable GULAG to gain easier control of a fractured body politic. That’s why Ken Wyatt deserves our full support. And why wouldn’t we? He has entertained GetUp in his office and publicised the fact so his credentials as part of the useful idiots brigade is well and truly established.

In the meantime CBD can take another well-deserved break from the rigours of the PS knowing all is happening, as CBD would want, without the exertion of having to lift a finger.

The CBD contributed exclusively to Flat White throughout the 2019 election campaign – and we have not heard the last of him/her/zi yet.
