This is not common sense.
Elites want us to be ashamed of Australia Day and who we are as a nation. As if somehow celebrating and giving thanks for our country is an act of racism.
A nation unsure of its past cannot be confident it has a future.
The totalitarian instincts and impulses of the elites who stifle free thinking and free debate, need to be taken on. Urgently.
Out on the ocean it is not the water outside the boat that is the worry. It is the water inside the boat.
The foaming water of cultural Marxism and Green Rainbow Left identity politics is well and truly sloshing about in the boat of both major political parties.
Politicians have three responses to this challenge. One group is clueless to the danger. Others are simply too afraid to confront it. And a third group comprised of party power-brokers are complicit with it.
Even senior LNP MPs from this great state campaigned for and voted to redefine marriage.
And if that wasn't enough, they then voted in Parliament against common sense protections for free speech and freedom of religion.
If cabinet ministers in a conservative government won't stand up for free speech, who will?
The water of the PC elites is in the boat of the LNP and they don't know how to get it out.
