Politically Correct Changes to the National Anthem: A Disgrace By James Reed
The year is getting off to a woke politically correct cultural cringing start, not just in the US but here in Australia, where over the Christmas the political class has changed the Australian national anthem. Never mind, we will see how things go after the US civil war, and World War III. It may change all of this pc stuff.
The critics have long claimed that describing Australia as a 'young nation' overlooks the fact that Aboriginal people have lived on the continent for centuries.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on New Year's Eve that the second line of the anthem, Advance Australia Fair, had been changed from 'for we are young and free' to 'for we are one and free'.
'While Australia as a modern nation may be relatively young, our country's story is ancient, as are the stories of the many First Nations peoples whose stewardship we rightly acknowledge and respect,' Mr Morrison said.
The Governor-General Hon David Hurley also agreed to a government recommendation to change the wording of the anthem.”
Oh, looks like the Covid-1984 business is back again.
Guess how 2021 is going to pan out!
