The Looney Left Brigade from their ABC or known as LLBABC (please don’t get confused with LGBTIQDDAP) have decided to change historical customs by changing the Hottest 100 from the 26th Jan to the 27th Jan in protest of the myth known as ‘Invasion Day’.
‘Invasion Day’ as they put it was the day in which Australia was able to blossom from the chains of prehistoric nothingness to what we have become today, a thriving civilisation. Now before SJW’s get on the band wagon and accuse me of being racist or some other made up term I do want to point out that Aboriginal Culture is unique, fascinating and ought to be preserved (also be taught in schools), the point I am making is that unfortunately it wasn’t progressive unlike European Settlement. Sadly we do live in a dog eat dog world whether you like it or not and if it wasn’t for the British, it could have been the Japs or the Frogs.
The LLBABC dismisses these claims and in actual fact they stated;
“It’s fair to say there’s been increasing debate around 26 January and there are a lot of perspectives on what it means to different Australians. As the public broadcaster representing all Australians, triple j and the ABC doesn’t take a view in the discussions.
However, in recent years the Hottest 100 has become a symbol in the debate about Australia Day. The Hottest 100 wasn’t created as an Australia Day celebration. It was created to celebrate your favourite songs of the past year. It should be an event that everyone can enjoy together – for both the musicians whose songs make it in and for everyone listening in Australia and around the world. This is really important to us.
Whether you’re listening in Busselton, Bundy, Alice or Aspen. From Coober Pedy to Caz’s pool, tuning in from a backyard BBQ or streaming from overseas, in the city or on the farm; everyone is invited to join the party.”
Given that response I probably should ought to apologies, right?
The vast majority of Triple J listeners generally lean to the left. Of course if you are going to give them a vote on whether or not to change the date of the Hottest 100 they will almost certainly vote yes because its the noble thing to do. Strangely though the majority of people voted to change the date to the following day. Now according to my calendar, the 26th Jan 2018 falls on a Friday therefore the 27th Jan falls on a Saturday. (Funny that!)
The question I want to ask is, would they have changed the date to the next day if it was mid week whereby they would have to go to work (Yes believe it or not some lefties do work for a living)? Or would they have changed the date to a weekend? Who knows. But it is somewhat of a coincidence that the LLBABC decide to change the date around the same time a handful of left leaning Councils voted to change the date of Australia Day.
Their ABC are making us out for fools. This was a co-ordinate attack on Australia Day and their claim that they are ‘impartial’ is bullshit.
One thing the left does not understand, if we are to have reconciliation between Aboriginal and non Aboriginal people we can’t just forget about our history. There is no denying that their were atrocities on both sides but learning from our history and embracing our history actually makes us better human beings. What the left are doing is creating a divide between an already broken down relationship between Aboriginal and non Aboriginal people by pushing this agenda to change the date. Yes some will feel isolated but the whole idea of Australia Day is for everyone to come together to celebrate this great nation and what THEY can offer to the Country.
I know what I will be doing on the 26th January 2018, I will be relaxing over a beer and celebrating the First Fleet and the social cohesion which we enjoy thanks to the British settlement. What will you be doing?
