XYZ Live #55 – The RISE of Identity Politics

4

In last night’s livestream, we covered a week in which identity politics has gone into overdrive in Australia. After opening with a little more fun and Captain Potato’s expense and a brief discussion of Jordan Peterson’s talk in Melbourne, the topics included:

  • Sonja Kruger found by the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal to have vilified Muslims when she expressed concern over Muslim immigration and Islamic terrorism, however she is not guilty of racial vilification, confirming what conservatives have been saying for years – Islam is not a race.
  • Scott Morrison appealing to foreigners residing in Australia to help keep other foreigners out, after the passing of the refugee medivac bill.
  • Many members of the Aboriginal All Stars Rugby League team refuse to sing the Australian national anthem.
  • White miners being kicked off their land for being white.
