Opportunism Down Under: 'It's OK to Be White' Motion Judged Racist by the Left

Although the motion, which condemns "white racism" and "attacks on Western civilization," was voted down 31-28 on Monday, it was backed by a number of government ministers. Senators from the left, in turn, have bashed the motion as a "racist stunt."

The upper house of Australian parliament has turned down, by a narrow margin, a motion against "anti-white racism."

"It's OK to be white," a provocative motion brought forward by Pauline Hanson, who leads the right-wing One Nation party, was defeated on Monday in the Australian Senate, which voted it down 31 to 28.

Hanson, 64, has decried "the deplorable rise of anti-white racism" and "a rise in attacks on the very ideals of Western civilization" before the vote. The slogan "it is OK to be white" is a nod to a T-shirt that Canadian activist Lauren Southern wore when she visited Australia's Brisbane in July as part of her "free speech" tour.
