Course Karl is upset about the Cricket. The guy’s big “expose” on Meghan Markle was an interview with Katie Hopkins, the UKs BIGGEST racist. #AustraliaDay I stand with #CricketAustralia and their decision to wear #IndigenousAustralia Jerseys. That IS Australian.
And if you think Sports has never been political…Are you in for a shock. Course Sports is political.

Why so many White Australians have a problem with moving a public holiday to another day, that doesn’t represent colonization. It’s just weird to me, why this is such a big deal. Why is it SUCH hard work to change a day, that doesn’t represent us NOW, to another day that would represent us NOW.
Any “Australian” that wants to kills off Koala’s to make money. Doesn’t have a single leg to stand on when talking about “What’s Australian” #KoalaKiller *cough* John Barilaro MP *cough*
If we, Australians, see these hypocritical comments for stupid elite leaders, and can’t see WHY we need to change the date from these comments alone. I don’t know what else to tell you.
By the way, I just found out that the “Australians of the Year” nominee’s were a majority, are of the Christian Faith -.- However, I am happy with who won “Australian of the Year”.

There has been an interesting development in the who discovered Australia…who
Matthew Flinders remains discovered in London
The main reason this is so intersting is because our current Prime Minister #ScoMo is apparently wanting to put money ($6.7 million) towards a replica of Captain Cooks boat. Part of the reason (other than spending money on a replica boat) While Captain Cook charted the east coast, he did not circumnavigate Australia. Matthew Flinders was the first to sail around the country between 1801 and 1803.
This weekend (well mainly Friday) Australians will “celebrate” Australia Day. The day is now in high debate whether the date should be changed, or whether not the entire day should be changed entirely.
The problem with the date is that it significance is when the British/Europe settlers came to “discover” Australia. Then as what happened back then, they nearly ended up wiping out the Indigenous people out…Think Columbus Day. Then of course it hasn’t been until the most recent decade that the Australian Parliament has made any sort of acknowledgement, including the 70’s and 80’s “stolen generation”.
Some people want the name of the day changed to “Invasion Day”. Some don’t. Some want the day changed entirely, some don’t.
I’m more of the I want the name of the day changed and “Australia Day” to be changed to a different day instead. I don’t know why people are so obsessively holding onto a holiday, that wasn’t even made a national public holiday until 1994. Even then most people I know have barbecues and get drunk. They don’t do anything to recognise how we became Australia. It’s just having a Barbecue and getting drunk on another day instead. We literally have another 364 to choose from. I personally would want the other Australia Day to be somewhere in Summer. Mainly because I think of Australia and I think of heat,lol
