Former policy advisor to disgraced former Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Nicholas Reece is a now a 'principal fellow' at Melbourne University. In The Age the other week, Reece has climbed down from his ivory tower to express his solidarity with women and brown people by proclaiming that:
..in the real world we find the senior ranks of Australia's professions, parliaments, governments and companies are still largely a White Sausage Club. We don't just need more gender diversity, we need more diversity across the board. In the land of the "fair go" a person's race and gender is still a strong predictor of a person's success in life, or lack of it. In 2016, that is embarrassing and unacceptable[..]There is no rational explanation for Australia's diversity problem.
Well Nick, unfortunately for you, Australia is still a 'largely white' country. According to Nick's logic, behind the face of every Pradeep or Jin-Li is a Prime Minister. As for the 'gendered slur' about 'sausage clubs', I'm reminded of Peter Slipper's career-destroying reference to “shell-less mussels”. What could be more Australian than a 'surf and turf'?
But to his credit he does get one thing right, one that the editors picked up and awarded a magnified quote:
If you arrived from another planet you would think there must be a law that mandates the uniform sameness in Australia's leadership ranks, or that white males had more natural talents and skills than everybody else.
Spot on Nick. If someone really did arrive from another planet, they probably wouldn't be brainwashed by junk-psychology such as 'Tabula Rasa' that require conspiratorial explanations for all instances human difference.
If this alien had an opportunity to travel around the world a bit, he would observe that the founding stocks that remain majority populations in their own nations tend to dominate the ranks of the governments of those countries. No surprises here.
Anti-white agitation has been a staple of U.S identity politics for decades, but in Australia it has mostly been limited to the fringes of the socialist left, comprised primarily of art-student bums who make a nuisance of themselves on campus.
What's an ugly surprise for Australians is that our governments and universities are creating make-work positions for these finger-wagging race-baiters, constantly on the lookout for the next instance of 'racism' to beat their chests and make good fellows of themselves.
Rather than railing against this phenomenon, I encourage the use of the word 'racism' as much as humanly possible. In the words of Alain de Benoist:
At first sight, branding a hostile position as racist could seem to benefit those who use this tactic by heaping on adversaries the disapproval the term “racism” entails. In fact, the result may be the exact opposite. If all aggressive behavior is “racist,” “racism” becomes as “normal” as ordinary feelings of hostility, hatred, aggression — feelings present at all times and in every society. If everyone is racist, no one is racist: dilution leads to trivialization — diluting responsibility is a classical tactic for relieving the guilty of their guilt! Moreover, such a definition of “racism” would give the laws against racism such a scope that they would become unenforceable. (1)
'Agreeing and amplifying' that mean words on a train are the biggest issue facing our nation is perhaps the best anti-anti-white troll.
So get involved, join the party and call out every absurd instance of non-white or double-standard 'racism' you see. If they're drawing long bows, we should keep pulling further and further. They won't be expecting it.
