Bash­ing Aus­tralia

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

Greens leader Richard Di Natale’s com­ments on Aus­tralia Day made me re­alise that the Greens are a party of con­tra­dic­tions.

Di Natale de­scribed Aus­tralia Day as in­va­sion day. Ap­par­ently the con­victs who ar­rived in chains were in­vaders and the peo­ple who ar­rive via peo­ple smug­glers are not.

The Greens claim to sup­port mul­ti­cul­tur­ism and di­ver­sity but how many Jews, Bud­dhists, Mus­lims, Hin­dus, Sikhs, Chris­tians, black, brown or brindles rep­re­sent the Greens? They are pre­dom­i­nately white athe­ists with pseudo re­li­gious be­liefs on the en­vi­ron­ment.

The Greens claim to be guided by sci­ence, but when sci­en­tists use the sci­en­tific method to bust green myths, they vil­ify the sci­en­tist in­stead of ver­i­fy­ing the sci­ence. And how often have they told us that 97 per cent of 77 sci­en­tists “be­lieved” in an an­thro­pogenic cli­mate catas­tro­phe; is be­lief (faith) the new sci­ence?

The Greens be­lieve that car­bon diox­ide is bad for the en­vi­ron­ment. They “re­duce“it by fly­ing around in aero­planes, turn­ing on their air-con­di­tion­ing or cen­tral heat­ing, and us­ing treated wa­ter pumped from dams they op­pose to make ex­otic cof­fees and fill their jacuzzis.

The Greens call them­selves pro­gres­sives but are no­to­ri­ous for frus­trat­ing or pick­et­ing progress.

The Greens are con­sis­tent on one thing how­ever, they bash Aus­tralia reg­u­larly and not just on Aus­tralia Day. Marc Schellekens, Drouin
