Pauline Hanson vs the 9 year old girl

Pauline Hanson Just Picked A Fight With A Woke 9-Year-Old, And She’s Already Losing

Pauline Hanson has done it again. Done what, you ask? Oh, just picked a fight with someone via unscripted Facebook video, only to pretty momentously embarrass herself. This time, that someone is a woke nine-year-old, and it’s fair to say the nine-year-old is winning.

You may have seen the news this morning about a nine-year old girl from Brisbane called Harper Nielsen, who was given detention for refusing to stand for the national anthem at her school. Her reasoning was pretty solid, too — she told the ABC she thinks the song is wrong because “when it says ‘we are young’ it completely disregards the Indigenous Australians who were here before us for over 50,000 years”.

“When it was originally written, Advance Australia Fair meant advance the white people of Australia.”

Now, several hours later, enter Pauline Hanson. Obviously, this is the kind of story Pauline Hanson couldn’t resist weighing in on, and she did so with an apparently improvised video posted to social media. Viewing it is like watching some kind of bizarre patriotic timelapse where Hanson slowly entangles herself in her own logic and becomes angrier and angrier when she can’t escape. Something like that, anyway.

The video also features what is perhaps the most Pauline Hanson line of all time: “What the hell is going on? I’m angry about this.”

“The whole fact is, there are rules in this country,” Hanson begins, before immediately ditching this line of reasoning as it becomes clear to her that actually, there is no rule requiring people to vacate a seat for the national anthem. She then has a crack at responding to her opponent’s actual argument, which doesn’t go well either. “And she says, ‘well it’s not including Aboriginals, they were here 50,000 years ago, we’re not young and free. What about the Aboriginals?’ Well, it’s not about that,” she says, efficiently proving the nine-year old’s point.

Still, Hanson doesn’t give up, calling the kid “brainwashed” and letting us know that “I tell you what, I’d give her a kick up the backside”. Because child abuse is somehow less offensive than sitting down for the national anthem.

“I’ve got no problems with standing your ground, and you know I do. But we’re talking about a child who has no idea of what is history, what’s happening, what we should do, and what we need to do, to pull everyone together. Regardless of their cultural background, we are all Australians. This is divisive.” Hanson then follows up with some divisiveness of her own, criticising “this transgender sex stuff, this Safe Schools problem”, and other examples of apparent “brainwashing” in schools. It’s also worth remembering that Hanson kicked off her Parliamentary career by claiming Australia was being “swamped by Asians”, frequently attacks Muslims, kids with disabilities, and other minorities, and is basically famous for her own divisiveness.

At this point, Hanson’s already soundly lost her fight with the nine-year-old, but she’s got one last trick up her sleeve. She concludes by namedropping the only two Indigenous Australians she can think of, Cathy Freeman and Warren Mundine, and using their example to argue that “there’s great, y’know, people of different cultural backgrounds. Aboriginality. They want to see inclusiveness.”

“But this kid has had it down the wrong path, and I blame her parents for it, for encouraging this. No, take her out of the school.”

If your afternoon could really use a pick-me-up, you can watch the video of Hanson owning herself here:

Pretty cool kid hey?

Imagine how she feels having a leader of the nation saying she should have her arse kicked and thrown out of school for making a salient point.

Reading the comments on Ozpol is really sad, not that i expected any better.

I honestly can't believe actual parents are dismissing the notion that this girl is clever and free-thinking enough to have drawn her own conclusions and acted on her own judgement. Do they not know their children?

Kids are smart ... especially if they are encouraged to think.

I was 9 when i became vegetarian ... against very, very strong resistence from my family. Kids know their minds.

Always support a child's right to be heard. Whether you agree or not is immaterial. This relegation of her to "brainwashed" and "brat" is so incredibly condescending.

No wonder so many kids can't relate to grown-ups.

I really pity kids with parents like this. I pity the parents too ... they miss out on so much.

Yes she has the bravery of youth and conviction... and good on her. I think it a really sad thing that politicians have come out in the media... against this child..

[color=#BFFF00]Appalling. [/color] And highly indicative of how threatened they feel by ANY dissent.

Truly pathetic.

If anyone can think of a single redeeming feature that Hanson possesses, could you let me know?

I honestly can't think of one.

She's the perfect example of a waste of oxygen.

Anyway, when I go the the tennis (Hopman Cup, in Perth), I never stand for the national anthems.

It results in lots of booing, name calling, and kicking of the back of my chair.

People are such idiots - they really, truly are.

Nope. Her outside is as ugly as her inside.

This POS is advocating child abuse:

“I tell you what, I’d give her a kick up the backside”

Hanson should be removed from parliament immediately.

Why have we allowed our country to sink to this level?

A politician saying that she would physically assault a child, and nothing is done about it.

Appalling.

Arse kicked and thrown out of school. Fabulous eh?

And all this talk of "brainwashing" really shits me. To add to what i previously said about people wildly underestimating children, there is the very real fact that were this child parroting racist, xenophobic, or otherwise revolting sentiments espoused by her critics, they would congratulate the parents on bringing the kid up right.

Remember Hammer's favourite story? About how his hilarious old man gave a sandwich with ham in it to a Muslim at work .. and he ate it? Laughter pealed off of the walls at the Hammer home for many years. Hammer still tears up thinking about it.

Okay to get your kid to think like that though.

Weren't that lot all appalled that a girl got sanctioned for calling a brown thugball player an ape? Her greatest defenders? Can't treat a kid like that and stuff?

I hear ya!

Hammer et al. are quite sickening.

It really saddens me that we have people like them, and Hanson, in this country.

That is conservatism. Haunted by the fear of change including to their position and self-image.
