Jacquie Lambie has followed her Party Leader into an area which could double or even triple votes the for the PUP.
With a very public declaration that the Chinese are Mongrels and Bastards, Clive Palmer set out his personal agenda for the benefit of his own business interests. Despite the outrage from fellow Australians and from the Chinese, there may be a rather convenient hidden agenda being pursued. One which could find a lot more votes for PUP.
Within twenty four hours there was a second broadside from one of his tame Senators which raised the spectre of a Chinese invasion and the enslaving of the Australian people. This taps into one of the deepest fears of the Aussie psyche.
THE YELLOW HORDES
Since the first gold discoveries in Australia there been a deep-seated distrust of the Chinese Immigrants who came chasing the yellow metal. The complaints were eerily similar to those made about allowing Asylum Seekers into Australia.
“Where will it stop?” “There are millions of them.” “They will swamp the true Australian way of life.” “They will work for a penny a day and take our jobs.”
The distrust of the “Celestials” has continued down to the present day.
As I wrote in “Two Wongs Don’t Make A White“, we are now “led by a Liberal Party which has brought back the principles of the White Australia Policy.”
That stance can be traced directly to Pauline Hanson and her Maiden Speech in the Australian Parliament in which she criticised immigration and multiculturalism. John Howard and Tony Abbott noted the instant approval and set about stealing the position, and its associated 10% of the electorate, from Hanson. The mostly concealed Abbott Slush Fund was a direct result.
Now, following Palmer’s self-interested comments, Senator Lambie has re-launched the Hanson agenda. Should the old “One Nation” voters pick up on this move, the marginal 5% Palmer United Party could become a solid 15% Party. Their influence could be maximised just in time for the rapidly approaching Queensland State election.
JACQUI LAMBI sounded very much like the red-headed Fish and Chip Shop owner as she made a case for doubling the size of our Armed Forces as a way of keeping those Yellow Hordes out of Australia.
The Australian wrote, “Hitting back following criticism of Mr Palmer’s initial remarks, Senator Lambie accused the two major parties of failing to defend the country against the rising threat.
“If anybody thinks that we should have a national security and defence policy, which ignores the threat of a Chinese Communist invasion — you’re delusional and got rocks in your head,” she wrote in an email to the media.”
Sadly for our National reputation there is a groundswell of support on talk-back radio for this stance.
