Have you read the papers in the last few days? Have you see the idiocy of the left become more rampant in the mainstream than ever? In a sudden epiphany social justice warriors and snowflakes alike have decided its now time to revise the history of Australia, destroy traditions we hold dear and ban opinions that differ from the cultural elite. All in one week.
Censorship of images in the Soviet Union was widespread in the USSR, and absolutely exploited in a political context. This was most prevalent during the political purges of Stalin, during this time the Soviet government attempted to erase the victims of the purge, in ways that included altering images and destroying film.
Or do you remember when the Chinese government rewrote history books to extend the Sino – Japanese war by six years. Should I go on with the list of historical revisionism and distortion? The Chinese book burning, Nazi book burning, Confederate revisionism.
There is a term for all of this, it’s “History Negationism” the illegitimate distortion of historical record.
In the US last week, we saw the removal of a number of statues that were viewed as offensive by a select few, and therefore (according to them) justifiably taken down and destroyed, after all…out of sight, out of mind, what better way to revise history.
Now Australian SJW’s have taken it to another level, not only are they now calling for the removal of the Captain Cook Statue in Hyde Park and that of Governor Macquarie, but several councils have also dumped Australian Day ceremonies, and one council was about to blacklist those who held an opinion against same sex marriage…an absolute tragedy.
Let’s start on the statues, whether people like it or not, Captain Cook is a major part of Australian History. He was a British explorer, navigator, cartographer, and captain in the Royal Navy. Cook made detailed maps of Newfoundland prior to making three voyages to the Pacific Ocean, during which he achieved the first recorded European contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, and the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand. Not everything he did was absolutely perfect but does that then justify the removal of this man from Australian history?
Governor Macquarie, had a leading role in the social, economic and architectural development of the colony. He is considered by historians to have had a crucial influence on the transition of New South Wales from a penal colony to a free settlement and therefore to have played a major role in the shaping of Australian society in the early nineteenth century. Oh but the SJW’s are angry with this white male, time to white out his name from the history books.
Aboriginal leader, and opinions leader Warren Mundine himself said, “All this nonsense about changing things – we cannot look back at history with out modern minds otherwise we would have to tear down the pyramids because they were built by slaves.”
In my opinion, instead of removing these statues, why can’t we create more statues recognising the indigenous people of Australia, there are many that deserve the recognition and celebration. Let’s not distort history, let’s embrace it, learn from it, celebrate it, because we cannot face the future without understanding the past. Humanity is beautiful BECAUSE of its imperfections.
Things get worse as we move across to the socialist capital of Australia, Melbourne. Here the Darebin Local Council decided to dump Australia Day ceremonies, and to ban all communication from having the phrase ‘Australia Day’, instead the phrase January 26th will take it’s place…so who’s sitting on the council that made this tradition to again simply ignore the history of this country? Well it won’t come to much of a surprise when you realise the nine councillors include four Greens, three independents and two Labor backed trendies. The decision was part of a domino effect, which began in Yarra council….it doesn’t look like it will stop here either, with left – wing dominated local governments looking to follow suit.
What’s most discerning about this move by local governments, is the lack of consultation between those who elected them and the elected…do the feelings of nine councillors trump the feelings of those they serve? If the people of the area had a substantial majority who wanted to take funds reserved for Australia day and in turn invested in a different cultural holiday, then so be it, instead they’re making these changes without proper consultation, standing in their ivory towers where decisions of the many are made by few.
So what is the point of all this historical negation? Well let’s dig a little deeper and find out who benefits from it? The purpose of historical negation is to achieve a political aim, by transferring war-guilt, demonising an enemy, providing an illusion of victory, or preserving a friendship…The ability to control ideological influence, social influence, and political influence are all benefits of historical revisionism. Think about it for a second.
Identity politics is the tendency for people of a particular religion, race, social background, etc., to form exclusive political alliances, moving away from traditional broad-based party politics. Much like that of the SJW’s alliance with the Labor party and the left. By targeting things like “racist” statues and “racist” national holidays the left are able to attract certain people and therefore count on them in upcoming elections. Don’t you think it’s funny that all this commotion is gaining traction around the same time a double dissolution is likely, causing an earlier election?
In alignment with above, historical negation of these statues and Australia day demonises all those who celebrate them. And who celebrates them? Well patriots do, people with a strong bond to their country, people of ALL races. So why the attack on patriots? Well the internationalist (globalist) motives of the left are not possible with loud and proud patriots who put Australia first.
1984 by George Orwell did well in warning us about such a time that history would be erased and replaced;
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statues and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the party is always right.”
