Pauline Hanson‘s 1996 maiden speech to the House of Representatives – containing such gems as “I believe we are in danger of being swamped by Asians” – was a thing of beauty, if you happen to be a massive goddamn racist.
Hanson ran as a Liberal candidate in the formerly-safe Labor seat of Oxley, in Brisbane, but when the Liberals disendorsed her after comments about Indigenous Australians, she sat as an independent, and went on to form One Nation.
Aussie musician Michael Tan recently revisited this ’90s classic, but set it to the soothing strains of jazz music, with the smooth instrumental acting as a weirdly perfect counterpoint to the jarring cadence of Hanson’s speech.
Why does this exist? Why does it work so beautifully? NFI to be honest, just sit back and enjoy:
