I am getting a little tired of racist morons proclaiming they’re “proud to be Australian” and in the same breath saying that anyone who migrates here from overseas should assimilate or fuck off.
If you were born here, you don’t get to be proud of being Australian, because it’s not an achievement. You didn’t do anything, you were just born here. Be grateful, if anything, but pride doesn’t really apply.
In fact, the only people who can really be proud of being Australian are the naturalised immigrants that those dudes with “Aussie Pride” bumper stickers loathe so much. They’re the ones who had to pass a test to get in.
