The 'It's ok to be white!' stunt and controversy

October 16, 2018

Pauline Hanson’s “It’s OK to be white” stunt senate motion has failed — but only just. 

The Herald Sun reports, the Queensland senator's motion urged her colleagues to acknowledge “the deplorable rise of anti-white racism and attacks on Western civilisation” and say “it is OK to be white”.

That last part used the same phrase on a T-shirt worn by Canadian activist Lauren Southern (pictured) when she visited Australia in July.

The catchphrase “It’s OK to be white” was originally conceived by activists on 4chan’s “politically incorrect” image board.

Signs and cards bearing the phrase have popped up in all sorts of public places since, occasionally inducing outrage.

Senator Bernardi has told Paul Murray Live on Sky News, he thinks the motion was a stunt and that's the stock-in-trade of modern politicians.
