The Australian government has said that an "administrative error" prompted 23 of its senators to vote for a motion which stated "it is OK to be white".
The motion by Pauline Hanson, leader of the anti-Islam One Nation party, also condemned "anti-white racism". It was defeated 31-28 in a vote on Monday.
Critics noted that the phrase "it's OK to be white" has been associated with trolls and white supremacist groups.
PM Scott Morrison said the level of government support was "regrettable".
Responding to a backlash on Tuesday, the government said its senators had misunderstood the motion due to an internal "process failure".

keep normalizing naziism. that can never do anything but good.

I am glad this vote was defeated. Saying that it is okay to be white is obviously racist. The government was right to find that sentiment regrettable. It is impossible to be racist against white people.

The absolute state of the remains of Her Majesty's empire. How far you've fallen. Worshipping the shitskins you formerly ruled. You took the land by right of conquest, ruled wisely and lifted up yourselves and the natives, then you threw it all away, believing jewish lies. Sad.

There is no reason to keep the major parties in power in Australia. They will continue to fuck us and destroy everything good about the country.

Well, at least they're not completely retarded. Also does this mean it is legally not ok to be white in Australia?
October 17, 2018 - 01:08
I honestly thought the government was going to say the error was the other way around, that the vote was FOR the motion, and it IS okay to be white.
October 17, 2018 - 03:00
Nope. It's not okay, according to the Australian government.
I guess we're the bad guys now. pic related

How insulting but not surprising. Politicians will have to learn the hard way.
October 17, 2018 - 03:56
So, Australia's official position is that it is not OK to be white?
October 17, 2018 - 03:58
Correct. A clearer declaration of treachery and reason for expulsion has ne'er been made.

Nice to know politicians hate the people that pay their wage and are not afraid to show it.

Yup this is why the Aussies voted the minor parties in and now they are afraid. They deserved it for backstabbed the Aussies many times.
