Pauline Hanson: ‘I will ask the Senate to acknowledge that it is okay to be white.’


Senator Pauline Hanson will today ask the Australian Senate to acknowledge that it is okay to be white.

In a post on Twitter, Senator Hanson said, “I saw the huge overreaction to Lauren Southern’s t-shirt with that message and decided if the Senate won’t agree to this then we have to admit Australia truly has an anti-white racism problem.”

Senator Hanson’s motion reads: “I give notice that today I propose to move: That the Senate acknowledge: a) The deplorable rise of anti-white racism and attacks on Western civilisation; b) It is okay to be white.”

Lauren Southern was heavily criticised after she touched down in Brisbane wearing a t-shirt that read, “It’s okay to be white.”

Southern appeared on Sky News following the backlash where she said, “If I were black, I could say I’m proud. If I were Asian, I could say I’m proud. If I were any other ethnicity I could say I’m proud, because that’s how our culture is. But if I’m white and I say I’m proud, the media will go nuts.”
