PAULINE HANSON

All of us here at A&GT have had heaps of fun pointing our sharpened stick at Pauline Hanson, and let's face it she deserved it!

What we have compiled here is a whole heap of Hanson (no, not the pop group) related stories, articles and jokes.

Granted some of them are pretty old. In fact, most of this stuff comes from A&GT #3 which hit the streets in September '98, but hey we still have the sharpened stick and want to use it one more time.



Pauline Hanson is visiting a school. In one class, she asks the students if anyone can give her an example of tragedy.
One little boy stands up and offers that "If my best friend who lives next door was playing in the street when a car came along and killed him, that would be a tragedy."
"No", Hanson says, "that would be an accident."
A girl raises her hand. "If a school bus carrying fifty students drove off a cliff, killing everyone involved, that would be a tragedy..."
"I'm afraid not," says Pauline. "That's what we would call a great loss."
The room is silent as no other students volunteer.
Finally a boy in the back raises his hand. He says, "If an aeroplane carrying Pauline Hanson and the entire One Nation party was blown up by a terrorist bomb, that would be a tragedy.
"Excellent!" Hanson beams at the young boy, "That's just marvelous! Now can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?"
"Well," says the boy, "because it certainly wouldn't be an accident and it certainly would be no great loss!"
Ha

WHAT THE PROTESTERS HAD TO SAY...
1. I think Pauline Hanson's organisation should be stopped, closed down, wherever people who are fighting against racism can do so, it represents the development of powerful racists such as the Nazis in Europe and we don't need that sort of thing here.. we'll stop it wherever we can...

2. I think there is no excuse for Nazi sympathy at all, like under the pretense of this big nationalist movement she's motivating all these people with all these false figures and incorrect statistics about immigration and Aboriginal welfare. She's getting the rednecks together to do some very dangerous politics and I don't like it.

3. It's a bit of a backwards step really, I mean we needed someone like PH, as in being extreme, but the only thing is it's being extreme in the wrong way, going much further towards the right, in the evolution of politics you can see we've gone from tribes to monarchies and state-nations and then to democracy, the next step is socialism, and PH is totally the wrong way from that, she's capitalist, racist and it's just not the way forward, people are going to get hurt, it's dividing the nation...

4. She goes against everything Australia has ever stood for... she assults one group of people after another using buzzwords like "for equality!" and you know she doesn't mean 'equality' the way it should be. The media have found that it sells newspapers, it's sensational and it works, the more outrageous she is, the more interesting banner you can make of it.

5. The woman is outrageously ignorant, I observed her maiden speech and I was disturbed to realise what idiot statements she made, for example that the Aboriginal people are not the most socially disadvantaged in Australia, to that I only ask one question: who the hell are? The woman is a liar, she's ignorant, she's stupid, she's damaging Australia and anyone who thinks like that is also doing the same.

ONE FACIST NATION
Quick, off the road! It's the Hanson wagon! After an eye before the storm type silence in the latter half of last year, she's back and she's got every rascist, redneck fuck in the country waving her flag. And hasn't the shit hit the fan lately. Howard's calling her deranged, Hanson has a one point plan of the total abolition of native title, and I'm reading today about One Nation's alleged links to armed right wing extreme militias, apparently in training somewhere in QLD in the event that Australia is attacked by an Asian aggressor. Okaay. If Oz is hit by anyone, I doubt it will be an Asian country.
I believe in A&GT #1 we referred to Pauline as an "over-opinionated, blabbering idiot", and that, it seems, still holds true. On A Current Affair the other night, when questioned regarding her inattendance of 100/142 political sessions (do they smoke bongs or what?), she countered by saying, "Well Ray, Alexander Downer came up to me in Parliament and asked what we were voting on..." Can't answer so defame someone else. Good tactic, eh. The funny thin is though, she scored 25% of the vote in QLD. That figure equates to a lot of weirdo Hansonites out there and that is pretty fucking scary. I guess people are sick to death of the current govt. and their bullshit (I know I am), so they want to give someone else a go, resulting in a lesser of two evils situation... now there is a dilemma in itself - Hanson or Howard? Another thing. It seems to us that P.H. is a product of media overkill, that is, blanket saturation by newscrews to the point where people become overwhelmed by the hype.
And they (One Nation) just talk so much shit, it's ridiculous. How's David Ettridge's idea of funding the People's Bank just by printing more money? Good idea, you nob. As that sort of action has done in the past, it would put inflation through the roof and you wouldn't be able to buy a loaf of bread with a wheelbarrow full of money. In summing up the whole circus, Kim Beazley said, "It is one of the most hysterical actions of recent government..." Damn straight.

Lately there has been protest after protest, with people from all walks of life taking a stand against Pauline Hanson and her racist affiliates. Thousands of young people took to the streets all over Australia to show that although they are not yet of voting age, they still have there opinions and they want them heard. How can One Nation say that these kids don't know what they are protesting about? There is no age requirement before you can say that racism is fucked. There is so much I want to say about Pauline Hanson, I don't know where to start. I mean seriously, the woman is fruitier than a ten pound christmas cake. If it's not teenage single mothers or the unemployed, it's the Aboriginals, migrants or some other group that can't really fight back that she puts shit on. Young people in general seem to be copping the sharp end of the Hanson stick lately, and none of these groups like being singled out. So guess what Pauline, there are more protests coming soon to a venue near you. Back To Politix
