Aussies came to their senses and overwhelming rejected an elite shame-filled referendum that would have mandated that the country amend their constitution and give one race privilege over all others.
Australians came to their senses and voted down a proposal that would have given privileges to one race over all others.
The BBC reported:
Australia has overwhelmingly rejected a plan to give greater political rights to Indigenous people in a referendum.
All six states voted No to a proposal to amend the constitution to recognise First Nations people and create a body for them to advise the government.
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said defeat was hard: “When you aim high, sometimes you fall short. We understand and respect that we have.”
Opposition leader Peter Dutton said the result was “good for our country”.
But this report hid the madness that occurred amongst the elites in reaction to the vote.
Another report shared the elite’s reaction.
The emphatic result of last weekend’s Voice to Parliament referendum has left the intelligentsia struggling for words. Nothing short of profanities could express their fury at the voters who had sabotaged their latest project. ‘Fuck today. Fuck this racist country’, posted writer and TV producer Kara Schlegl, warming up for a display of moral acrobatics. ‘I have never felt more ashamed to be an Australian.’
Will you be okay?

Australia has overwhelmingly rejected Labor’s proposal for an ‘Indigenous Voice to Parliament’. Had the referendum been successful, it would have given the government a mandate to amend the constitution and create a body exclusively for Aboriginal Australians to advise parliament. After a long and divisive campaign, 60 per cent of Australians voted No to the initiative.
The emotional response displayed by the cultural elites on social media came from a deep place. The Yes supporters’ image of themselves was suddenly at stake. These are people who pride themselves on having the judgement and wisdom to diagnose social ills and prescribe solutions. The No result was as much a rejection of them and their worldview as it was of the Voice proposal itself.
