One Nation is a Broad Church of National Interest


One Nation has announced a candidate who will surprise everyone in the out-of-touch, painting-by-numbers mainstream media, but no-one who inhabits the real world beyond the leafy gentrified suburbs with their ‘Refugees Welcome Here’ banners.

Shan Ju Lin will no doubt make the heads of many on the regressive left explode. In their world of literal black and white, free of nuance, that is born of regimented identity politics, the existence of a Taiwanese One Nation candidate defies everything they hold dear about immigrants who are to be seen and not heard, should they dare question the Cultural Marxist doctrine that they are perpetual victims, who are presumably so incapable of autonomy that they need the moral support and assistance of the left even to rise out of bed in the morning… and must not be allowed the dignity of any achievement without interference from socialist handicappers, lest they quickly dispel the myth that they are doomed to failure in Western society merely because of the colour of their skin.

Predictably, the ABC in its coverage of One Nation cries racism on one hand, yet is eager to racially profile the candidate and others in the party on the other. In the ABC article, Queensland Campaign manager Jim Savage seems unconcerned about the ethnic makeup of their new crop of candidates. Aunty, on the other hand, seems ethnically obsessed without a hint of self awareness.

And that’s the whole point. I’m quite sure most of those who are likely to vote for One Nation don’t particularly care about the genetic makeup of migrants. Their main concern is with integration and shared values. Is a new migrant likely to insist that that women be subjugated, and that my gay relative be walked off a building? If the answer is yes, then kindly move along and don’t let the door hit your a— on the way out.

Have you ever noticed that 95% of the time when someone brings up race and underachievement, it isn’t your bombastic racist uncle, but someone from the left trying to justify why different cultures shouldn’t have to be beholden to the same standards and expectations as ‘all of the white people’?

Shan Ju Lin, like Dr. Ben Carson, Warren Mundine, Milo Yiannopoulis, Dinesh D’Souza, and others, is a distillation of everything we don’t find that big of a deal, but that the left can’t stop highlighting as being different, in order to divide and conquer using insidious identity politics. Aside from their obvious talents, we get excited by their involvement on our side of the political spectrum because these brave individuals are the alkaline that neutralises the acid of identity politics.

Will the One Nation candidate that has the ABC and others in a lather win a seat, and if so will she be successful in her representation? Who is to say… but her platform regarding Communist China is certainly interesting.

Donald Trump was able to appeal to a wide array of disenfranchised voters. If Climate Alarmist sceptic Malcolm Roberts, Social Justice Slayer Brian Burston, and Shan Ju Lin, who has been involved with the admirable Epoch Times, are an indication of the direction the party is heading in, then much like the movement that took the White House, One Nation now seems to be shaping up to be a broad church of national interest in defiance of globalism in its own right. As a result, we may well see an exciting and invigorated force in Australian politics for years to come.

It’s your XYZ.

Eh?nonymous was a thoroughly repellent unemployed social justice warrior until a one in a million glitch in his Facebook account affected the algorithms in his news feed, omitting posts from his much loved left leaning Huffington Post and I F---ing Love Science, and inexplicably replacing them with centrist and conservative newsfeed items that slowly dragged him kicking and screaming into the light beyond the safe space that Mr. Zuckerberg had so carefully constructed for him. It’s a long road to recovery, but every Mark Steyn share he sees in his newsfeed is like another day clean from social justice addiction.

    The Left are a toxic cesspit of self-loathing. They hate humanity in all its forms and will stop at nothing to drag everyone down with them. The only people they like are those that hate them more than they hate themselves. It’s an endless competition to ensure nobody has any fun.

    Remember the old lady with thick glasses and grey hair that lives next door or close by, doesn’t know you, doesn’t want to know you and always replies to your greeting with a huff or icy silence, ensures you can’t stray an inch onto her driveway right next to yours by strategically placing pot plants on the concrete?

    Uh-huh.. Leftard.

    Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, Eh? And then brilliant some more!

    Your par about a bombastic uncle is the best piece of social commentary I’ve read in a long, long time!

    This is exquisite. Pauline’s classy handling of her errant W.A. Senator was stylish and restrained. He just dug a bigger hole.

    I love the succulent, suckling pig schadenfreude of the ABC have no inkling whatsoever, not the remotest awareness, of their own racist bent. And there for all to see. Sweet!!!!!

    Pauline has evolved. She is not and never will be an earth shattering intellect of ivory tower proportions but doesn’t need to be. We have thousands of them beavering away on their own fascinations. She does have honesty, a love for Australia, and a love for those who are grateful for the opportunities given them and make the most of their windfall. She speaks for millions who have been disparaged and ignored for decades.

    Lots and lots of very very nervous back room boys and girls brainstorming in their own increasingly fragile, Fortress of Solitude. God it’s great!!!!

    It’s nice to rile up the left and all…. But isn’t ON primarily an anti-immigration party ? How exactly does this fit with that ?

    If ON is not an anti-immigration party then exactly why would I vote for them ?

    • Deplorable Steve B

      Repealing 18c, discarding of much politically correct rubbish which infests our society, critical examination of Islamic immigration. All this, with the added bonus that ON makes leftist heads implode…

      • Victor Stamp

        OK – in a few years the heavens split open, the miracle of an extremist right wing party finally being invited to the table of policy discussion occurs after all the MSM lies, the 18C attacks, the elite posturing and snobbery, the Antifa abuse and attacks and liberal party conspiracies and we get…..”critical examination of Islamic immigration”.

        Not worth the candle mate.

        • Deplorable Steve B

          I’m not sure what your point is Victor…

          • Victor Stamp

            I think my point is a simple one – they are selling out.

            I understand that some compromise can be of value to achieve your aims, but I would have thought it is unlikely (very, very unlikely) that ON will get any credit from the media or ”Asian voters” by doing this stuff.

          • Deplorable Steve B

            Are you opposed to ON having an Asian candidate?

          • Victor Stamp

            Yes. Of course. Will she really be anti-immigration ? Doubt it…

            Lookee here:

            “Ms Lin, a school teacher who moved from Taiwan to Australia 26 years ago, said the Chinese Government, namely the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), was exerting too much influence on Australia.”

            Already she makes clear she is all about Taiwan v mainland China.

          • Deplorable Steve B

            So you think she may have a foreign agenda that is being hitched to On?

          • Victor Stamp

            I think it’s inevitable with migrant candidates unless they are assimilated.

            I also don’t think she will be a plus in getting migrant votes into ON – in the end migrants (unless they are assimilated) will run a mile from any party which wants to restrict migration (because that party will be tagged a racist and the migrants will accept that framing).

          • Deplorable Steve B

            I am hoping that Pauline has got the smarts this time to benefit her party and I do think she has. I would be surprised if she agreed to allow a ‘token’ Asian to represent ON. That would be really silly of her…

          • Victor Stamp

            Let’s see.One suggestion I would make Steve is to try to go beyond thinking something is good just because it ”freaks out the left”. This is buying their frame and limiting us.

            Have a good Christmas.
