Demand Adam Bandt apologise for disrespecting the flag
Perhaps by now you would be aware of Leftist Greens MP Adam Bandt’s disgraceful insult to the Australian people by refusing to stand in front of the Australian flag saying the country has “work to do” on racism.
ABC journalist Isobel Roe said prior to Mr Bandt’s arrival at a press conference, a Greens staffer put the Australian flag to the side of the room, leaving just the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags.
We demand Mr Bandt issue an immediate apology to Australians for showing absolute disrespect to The Australian Flag - a flag which is symbolic of the enormous Judaeo-Christian influence in our country and the same flag countless veterans have been buried under in service to this nation protecting it (and other foreign lands) from totalitarian regimes.
Decorated Vietnam War veteran and the National President of The Royal Australian Regiment Michael von Berg wrote to Mr Bandt demanding an apology.
"The Australian Defence Force and those in active service have sadly lost good friends and soldiers under that flag (and) we find it offensive someone who hasn’t worn a uniform or served the country or done the hard yards, dishonouring our members and the flag in such a way," he said.
Indigenous Northern Territory senator-elect for the Country Liberal Party Jacinta Price said the removal of the flag was “very disrespectful to all Australians.”
“It’s becoming a little bit childish for leaders to be virtue-signalling about who loves Aboriginal people more,” she said.
“There’s a lot of Aboriginal people out there who I’m sure like myself can see right through it. Just get on with representing all Australians, that’s what we are all elected to do regardless of our backgrounds. It is racist of Bandt to continue to paint Aboriginal Australians as helpless victims in need of rescuing by the likes of privileged woke MP’s.”
One Western Australia Aboriginal elder said Bandt’s act is against the spirit of reconciliation: “Having the three flags together is all part of the reconciliation and that’s what we are trying to achieve here,” he said.
“You don’t achieve reconciliation by removing one of those flags. That goes against the grain of everything it’s about.”
Even Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has stated that every parliamentarian should be proud to stand in front of the national flag, urging Mr Bandt to “reconsider his position and work to promote unity and work to promote reconciliation”.
It’s not like Bandt has ever been genuinely concerned about real Indigenous issues anyway. Hannah McGlade, a lawyer and lifelong advocate for the human rights of Aboriginal women and children said: “I went to law school with Adam Bandt, who never showed an interest in Aboriginal issues.”
