Sky News host Peta Credlin says perhaps the “left” have been too busy “blaming the fires on climate change” to find their usual “voice” to call for the nation to be “embarrassed” to celebrate Australia Day this year.
Ms Credlin said the “left” have “a real problem” in acknowledging the history of the nation.
“[Captain] Cook was one of the greatest ever explorers … yet instead of opening Australia to the modern world, his voyage in the left’s eyes marked the beginning of our country’s racist exploitation”.
“And herein lies the real problem, a lack of realism about the facts of both our indigenous and non-indigenous history,” Ms Credlin said.
The Sky host also praised Alice Springs Councillor Jacinta Price for her recent calls that Australia as a whole, has far more to celebrate than be ashamed of in relation to Australia Day.
Ms Credlin said the “good, at least as much as the bad” must be acknowledged within “Indigenous, British and migrant” history within the nation.
Ms Credlin said she would be the “first to concede that European settlement wasn’t all good for Aboriginal people,” but continued to state, “our British heritage has taught us much to be proud of too”.
