I’m a staunch monarchist, conservative and traditionalist. I will defend our flag to the death and I will defend things like Australia Day. But, I’ve been disappointed to see that racists have hijacked our flag and things like Christmas and Australia Day. It’s disappointing for me because I believe that Australia is great, not because we’re an incredibly wealthy country, not because we’re one of the longest running continuing democracies in the world and not because Sydney has the most badass double decker trains. No. Because Australia is a land where people of all cultures can live in prosperity and happiness. But even though things are actually pretty rosy, there are still racists who want to damage Australia’s harmony.
A hoax that Julia Gillard wants to turn Australia Day into ‘Citizenship Day’ has been doing the rounds on the internet for quite some time. But now there is a new twist:
This post actually had people fooled…

According to the film, The Social Network, Mark Zuckerberg conceived and founded Facebook largely as a result of being rejected by his girlfriend at the time.
So perhaps we must ask ourselves whether Facebook is merely a gigantic pervasive adolescent frat-boy fantasy theme park based on the need for acceptance and the need for the socially anxious to hang with the cool people and become awesome (and score women of course)

- unrealistic expectations
- pre-occupation with self – everyone is like me
- preoccupation with image
- overwhelming desire for acceptance
- black and white thinking
However in the real world, in order to survive, adolescents need to grow up.
We are told that Facebook has a physical workforce at…

Last night the ugly head of domestic violence reared it’s head in Bankstown and sadly a multitude of police officers doing what is a very hard job were injured.
The NSW Police Force posted the following status on their Facebook page:
The post did not name any ethnicity at all, but as predicted, violent and bigoted and racist comments ensued by a large amount of people assuming that the perpetrators were Arab. Because only Arabs commit crimes in this city, and white people don’t ever hit strangers, riot and stab people or kill police officers. Or anything bad like that, because in their mind, we’re a peaceful race. Right..
Here are some screen grabs of bigoted and racist comments, that are prejudicial, that NSW Police have deemed to be law abiding enough to not be moderated out of the page.
Best wishes for the recovering police officers!
And finally after two hours we get this:

Megan is a high school dropout from the little Queensland town of Ayr. At least she has a trade, she is a painter (so to be fair the high school dropout tag shouldn’t be an insult), but she needs to be educated on how being a racist could damage her career.

Breakfast TV show Sunrise may have some of the most ignorant, homophobic, xenophobic and racist viewers in Australia which is evident in the comments that they get on their Facebook Page.
On Thursday 12th April the Sunrise Page said the following:
Friday: Out of control teens – is bootcamp the answer? Angry Anderson will tell us why he thinks it is. Our Big Guns of Politics debate the week’s hot topics. Plus, Brian McFadden performs two songs and we’ll hear some big news from The Avengers star Chris Hemsworth.
And it was only a matter of time before someone blamed out of control teens on multiculturalism…
