If test cricketers (eg Quinton de Kok the other day) can be compelled to ‘take the knee’ by their employer in order to demonstrate their political solidarity with a Marxist remit masquerading as an anti racist signal … the precedent is set. We might grumble, but we can do nothing about it. Woke corporations are already strong-arming employees to get vaccinated … or else. We might grumble, but we can do nothing about it.
The increasingly woke defence forces have moved to embrace gender identity politics; Marxism has a toe hold. It is a short step to compelling our soldiers to ‘take the knee’ on the parade ground, at ceremonies … at muster? We might grumble, but we can do nothing about it.
Or can we? Would the image of Aussie soldiers forced to kneel in supplication to a Marxist ideology stir us enough to DO something about it? Will there be protest marches across the country? Will there be social unrest, civil disobedience? Or not? It’s a big question; will we all kneel and just grumble about it? That’s how the Marxist knee will be applied to our necks.
