Yassmin Abdel-Magied has linked the deaths of two aboriginal teens who drowned when fleeing police, to Mark Knight’s accurate portrayal of Serena William’s tantrum at the US Open and the legal settlement of Australia by the British.
“ACTIVIST Yassmin Abdel-Magied has weighed in on the controversial cartoon of Serena Williams and the deaths of two Aboriginal teens, blaming “white invasion”.
“On Tuesday, Abdel-Magied tweeted a news article about the deaths of Perth boys Jack Simpson and his friend Chris Drage who were part of a group being chased by police on Monday afternoon.
“In her post she said: “The original sin of invasion in Australia means that, unfortunately, racist cartoons are just one end of a violent and sadly, sometimes fatal, stick.
“And more often than not, the First Nations people pay the steepest price.”
The bodies of 17-year-olds Jack Simpson and his friend Chris Drage were found after a massive search, which was launched when four teenage boys jumped into the Swan River while allegedly trying to evade capture.
“This is nothing short of a tragedy,” Western Australia Police Commissioner Chris Dawson said as he offered condolences to the families of the deceased.
“Mr Dawson said while the deaths were being treated as having happened in the presence of police, officers did not physically engage with the two 17-year-olds.”
Here is her tweet:

To reiterate, Yassmin has called the very founding of Australia an “original sin”. This implies that the British should never have settled Australia. By extension, this means that everybody who came here since the founding of Australia should never have come to Australia, nor should their progeny live here. By extension, that means she should never have come here.
We sincerely hope that Yassmin, and any other person who considers the British founding of Australia an “original sin” lead by example and leave, renounce their citizenship, and never come back.
It’s your XYZ.
