Images of Canberra – Do we need more flags

As seen in the car park of the Braddon Club yesterday.

How many Australian flags are enough on a Toyota Ute?

The recently departed decade-long dark ages were imposed by a little bloke with a stupid twisted grin and twitching shoulder.
His name escapes me but I hold him responsible for encouraging a phony flag-draped brand of patriotism which appeared to fuel an aggressive nationalism and hostility towards other residents considered not to be Australian.
There’s nothing wrong in overtly demonstrating pride in our nation but thanks to this bloke, the practice has definitely become adulterated with negative and sinister connotations.
I prefer traditional Australian values of quiet national pride and not giving a rat’s arse about waving flags or kowtowing to any other symbols of authority.
I loved the celebration of larrikin and ratbag spirits, the open and friendly national character and a belief in a fair go for all.
These and other values came close to being dead and buried during those dark ages and I hope we never see their like again.
Lest we forget.

What’s with all of the Anti-US sentiment? If you’ve travelled the world, you’ll realise you can see this kind of thing anywhere. I’m a proud Aussie and its elitist pricks like DrKarl who embarrass me the most, not “some bogan” who chooses to display the flag on his ute. Grouping this person with the “we’re full” crowd is pretty ignorant too Timberwolf. For all you know the owner of this vehicle is a proud ADF member and/or a descendent someone who served.
Everyone needs to drop the “im better than you” attitude. You may be better than me, but there is always someone better than you too.

I have an idea for you DrKarl, next time you see a ute like this with flags and other “bogan” paraphernalia, wait by it and confront the driver and tell them what a bogan dickhead and wannabe American he/she is and take their flags from them…

Hey Cletus, how did the said dead digger get to a) mount the flags on the hilux and b) drive it to Baraddon?

a) presumably they were alive at some stage
b) apparently you don’t have to own a car to drive it somewhere

You didn’t think about that very hard, did you?

DrKarl said :

I think I got better things to do than stir up bogans

Apparently you don’t because you keep posting. Here’s something to think about: if you believe you’re better than some groups of people, and that you’re better qualified to dictate how they think and behave, then you’re badly mistaken. I think that kind of attitude is at the cause of a lot of the problems in the world. What do you think about that?

Let me see……

hilux.
Virtually unbreakable, goes anywhere and keeps going, copes with the knocks, no fuss, no bother.

A worthy mount point for one of our national symbols I would have thought.

And to the posters pointing out the Asian heritage of the Hilux (Japanese design, Thai build) are you saying that Asians are not valid contributors to our country? I would vehemently disagree.

FFS let people do want they want, just because it doesn’t fit in with your la de da PC world. You don’t have let the whole world know, freaking cry baby.

I’m glad people who make comments like this are on the opposing side.

Do I hear someone whining, I think I dooo…

We should be proud to have people who are proud of the country.

I am. Incredibly. But I don’t need to make a tool out of myself at the same time.
