Greens What bull shit

reef_scientist There is a famous saying that everyone will die globaltimesnews

It should be scrapped, and so should welfare

Because they were isolated for thousands of years, they had no resistance to the deadly viruses of smallpox, syphilis and influenza that were carried by the sailors and convicts. In less than a year, half the indigenous population died. The colonists destroyed in 6 months

Aborigines should be thankful for the British colonisation. They have never had it so good.

SBS, always working spend every dollar of the taxpayer's purse to undermine Australia.

Greens Beat it up Zionists. We need the goyim bred into one so they are easy to rule over in the Jewish messianic era, coming up with the new temple!

Can we get some comparative statistics of recent public gatherings? How do these numbers compare with, say, the climate protest rallies of late last year

I celebrate Australia. But I'd prefer to celebrate it on a day thats not a day of sadness and tragedy for so many. It seems simple. Let's find a day thats happy for everyone and be a generous, inclusive country that values all its people.

Trump the first president to attend pro-life rally | Sky News AustraliaUS President Donald Trump says it is a 'profound honour' to be the first president to speak at an annual anti-abortion event in Washington.\n\nIn his speech at the March for Life rally, the US president said 'unborn children have never had a stronger defender in the White House'.\n\nHe slammed the Democrats for what he called the most 'radical and extreme positions' on abortion from any political party 'in possibly centuries'.\n\nImage: AP\n\n Thank God for President Trump. I doubt if the God Botherers or Trump like each other at all. Trump has been forced into their political clutches by the irrational hatred of the centre left. Funny that the Democratic progressive lose again as a result of their blind hate based ideologies & actions. Abortion is sad, at the same time NO ONE has the right to tell anyone else what/ when/how they must treat their own bodies. That's abysmal.
