Firstly there will be a language and concept alert so in true Queenslanders way you’ve been told so that’s it.
I was bought up in the 50 ‘S and from the day I started school we were always lead to believer the southern states of Australia were well ahead of us people who lived in the north.
Better schools and education, better sports people, better beaches and better cities were all shoved down our throats and they were the benchmarks we had to hit.
As we grew so did our state and after a while we realised that NSW and Victoria were like two male Peacocks prancing around in full garb while Queensland, South Australia, and NT did not participate in this petty game of infantile one upmanship but the populations involved took this culture seriously to our amusement but we understood that if our sportspeople wanted to get a Australian spot in any sport they had to break the Southern culture which meant migrating.
Yes sport is a big thing in Queensland, it’s a underlying force, and we were belted often by our own talent in many sports and told how bad we were by the southern media.
We never forgot that, year after year we were disciplined enough to cop it and worked away slowly to balance the books.
That determination over time became our DNA, something the southerners will never understand to this day and only see it as a chip on the shoulder.
That QDNA is passed down, similar to the Scottish, the Irish, the Welsh hold their individually nationally we hold state wide and it becomes a culture of looking after each other, some could call it defensive or victim mentality.
Whatever it is the southerners don’t get it, and it translates across their actions in so many ways.
The Southern Peacock Mentality (SPM) emerges in so many ways when it comes to southern culture and no better barometer is the their sporting hero’s air of arrogance when it comes to discipline.
The NSW NRL, the states icon game , management and players caught continually breaking rules, be it salary caps, drug offences, DV , street violence, all just part of life as accepted practice that deserves a slap on the wrist, naughty little boys and the AFL is no better and we ask ourselves and they have the audacity to call themselves professionals. Any other codes, with infringements at that level those players and officials would be banned for life for bringing the code into disrepute.
No worries there that make their own rules don’t they ?
So, now let’s look to the present. The COVID-19 and the comparisons of how the states have managed their populations and you find it nearly fits the way they have handled their sporting icons.
Ruby Princess, the toxic capsule our nation prescribed by inept management, blame allocation, excuses, then slow reaction causing national pandemic conditions, a situation that was forewarned to our PM and ignored, but provisions were put in place in Queensland before any public body moved and when the passengers arrived they were immediately taken out of circulation. NSW sat on their hands and the horse bolted.
Queenslanders were informed and responded, the southern populations questioned and hesitated and analysed the money impact and not the health implications, and history is playing out now and playing catch up with that horse that has not only bolted but has time to breed.
If you look at the nations that have contained the virus they are the ones with inbred national pride for each other similar to QDNA discipline and the ones that have failed the test are the SPM’s . The self centered populations who fail to understand we all have work to beat the demons yet they are the ones along with their political stooges want us, those who stand strong, to be weak like them.
Our borders are strong, you will comply or fuck off back down south and join peacocks but I truly feel sorry for those who have the discipline to comply in the southern states and they watch the parasites destroy their safety, it’s hard to understand their intellect until you realise the have none other then self interest.
And yes over time Queensland will have clusters and more deaths, and at 70 I’ll probably be a target but I’m proud to be QDNA and me and my real Queenslanders will not be bullied any more by the southern parasites and peacocks ever again.
To Breath easy , vote Annastacia,or the alternative and become a statistic.
