Did you know that Australia didn’t have their “Australian Anthem” until 1984…I didn’t even know that! (Fantastic year though!) I found that out because of this douchebag…This is a Minister for Education -.-
So if we didn’t even HAVE the Australian Anthem, how can they have fought for the “anthem”? …That didn’t exist … Fact is, they didn’t. We had to stand under “God Save the Queen”… Surely a Minister for Education should know this basic information?
As @DoodyDarren said though: (I feel a few Americans can relate to this one!)
Our veterans didn’t fight for the anthem (or flag). They fought for their friends, family and the rest of us. They fought for PEOPLE. The anthem is supposed to represent us, but when we are divided (mostly due to politicians) it fails, and protest is warranted.
Luckily, pretty much all of the respondents on the post were common sense.
