(Sydney) Tara Coverdale decided to socialise with other mothers of children the same age as her two children whist on maternity leave. So she bundled her eight-month-old baby in the pram and walked with her four-year-old son the short distance to the Playgroup at Alexandria Park Community Centre.
“I’m sorry you can’t come here. It’s a multicultural playgroup.”
then the woman said:
“Can I ask what your cultural background is?”
“I’m sorry, you can’t come here. It’s for multicultural families and people who speak languages other than English at home.”
‘I’m not leaving’. My kids were playing. My older son was having such a good time with his buddy”
“Can I just ask what your cultural background is.”
“I’m sorry you can’t come here. It’s a multicultural playgroup.”How many times have you heard some sandal wearing lentil chomping dicksplash exclaim that white people can only be racist, that they don't mix with different people and that we should all get out more. Yet when somebody does exactly that, she is told to leave, by somebody playing the ....race card. Ironically a few days after been ejected from the playgroup for being white. The community held a harmony day in which “to celebrate the country’s cultural diversity”, with a free halal beef and chicken sausage sizzle. and this year’s theme was :
“We all belong”.
Australian Education Minister Rob Stokes on hearing about the above, instructed Fletcher to allow all families to attend the playgroup.
“I was disappointed to hear that a mum and her young child felt they were not welcome... This is not acceptable. Everyone, regardless of their background, should feel included in these wonderful community activities.”
Isn't liberalism so enlightening?
