G'day, mates! Drop dead.

The state of Victoria in Australia is planning to enforce laws discriminating against white males.
DISCRIMINATION against dominant white males will soon be encouraged in a bid to boost the status of women, the disabled and cultural and religious minorities.

Such positive discrimination -- treating people differently in order to obtain equality for marginalised groups -- is set to be legalised under planned changes to the Equal Opportunity Act foreshadowed last week by state Attorney-General Rob Hulls.

You may have a chance, though, as long as you're a criminal. Not by being a white male, but by having committed a traditional criminal offense.

The laws are also expected to protect the rights of people with criminal records to get a job, as long as their past misdeeds are irrelevant to work being sought.
Of course, the state of Victoria might consider that having been born with a Y chromosome and a melanin shortfall is relevant to any kind of work going.

My image of the Aussie bloke is being sorely tested. They'll be weeping a bit, sensitively, down at the boozer. "Crocodile" Dundee will sort out the muggers. "That's not a mop." (Whips out Bowie mop.) "This is a mop."

Mates, you can hide out halfway across the flaming outback, but the long arm of positive discrimination will catch you up like a 'roo with itchy feet. Can't think what you could do about it.


The Clash: "White Riot"

Ha! We'll just put on a happy face and hop to it. The best damn grease trap cleaners and grovellers this side of the equator. Better watch out though, once we perfect the art of cleaning up the slops we'll be coming to America to take all your janitors jobs - the jobs that Americans just won't do. Take that!

BTW If you've got any change I'll chop some fire wood for ya.

Liberals have miswired brains. They are obsessed with nondiscrimination EXCEPT against white males. That's different!

I sometimes think of that song, "White Riot," too....it unintentionally expresses something true, though the Clash meant it to express admiration of black rioting....

I do hope this rigmarole is a sort of a joke from hysterical Australian coloured women....If it is not a joke, they must have an IQ definitely inferior to zero!

I cherished the moment — turning the crudely leftist politics into a different kind of protest song than the band had intended.

Got to say, though, The Clash did some brilliant stuff on their first album and London Calling.

With all due seriousness, when will the White Man finally stand up and say enough; backing it up with real violence.

On the other hand, I am in a very Red State and I just found out that a parent at my kid's school, who is a married white male, father and an active duty fighter pilot supported the Messiah as did his white wife who is a stay at home mom. When I hear things like that I sink further into despair of the White Race ever waking before it is too late.

I wonder how the gov't could positively discriminate against this bloke.

See, I was right. There's plenty of room here for solitude...and plenty of fish, and plenty of sun, and plenty of relaxation. All you needs a fishing rod, 4WD and a trusted dog.

On the subject of The Clash, Strummer's politics are left but he wrote songs that could and are taken contrary to how they were intended. Apparently Strummer wept when he heard that US fighter pilots were using Rock the Casbah as their theme song in Gulf War I.

And, may I recommend Strummer's rendition of The Minstrel Boy - the 1798 Uprising tune - the Black Hawk Down soundtrack version. Spine tingling stuff.

No need for a White Riot - yet. I say we all pack up, go bush and let the wymins do what they so eagerly aspire to do. They'd be on their knees begging after a week.
