They’re so busy laying traps for her, and delighting when she becomes ensnared, that leftist bullies are entirely in denial they’re boosting Hanson’s appeal further.

When One Nation’s leader Pauline Hanson apologised on Thursday for comments made earlier in the week about vaccinations, the jeering leftist media mob descended with glee declaring she was in “damage control” and “chaos”.


“I’ve heard a couple of doctors have said that there is no test,” she said on Sunrise. “Yes, I do apologise. If that be the case, I am wrong, all right. I was of the opinion that I did read that was the case, apparently it’s not.” Hanson had suggested parents should conduct a test for allergies to vaccinations on children, which doesn’t exist.

Apparently, all the media heard loud and clear was the word ‘wrong’.

Meanwhile, her supporters heard a politician be honest and admit a mistake rather than attempting to cover it up or dodging the question entirely. Notice Turnbull’s entirely swerved the WA ahead of the state’s impending election.

The media swiftly slammed Hanson, saying her party was “in tatters”.

Her supporters heard a truthful lone wolf in a pack of self-serving elites.

Rather than bluster with spontaneous outrage, some may be well served to read her comments again, in a quiet corner away from the nodding sheeple that bleat what they should think.

“I advise parents to go out and do their own research with regard to this. No one is going to care anymore about the child than the parents themselves,” she said. “Make an informed decision. What I don’t like about it is the blackmailing that’s happening with the government. Don’t do that to people. That’s dictatorship.”

Pauline Hanson’s growing appeal hinges on her being seen as the antidote to political correctness and constantly being told what to do.

Those who support her hear a woman encouraging people to stand on their own two feet, to empower themselves and make educated choices rather crumple in a heap in the corner trembling, wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the word ‘victim’.

To underestimate Hanson is to learn nothing from Trump.

The real question is: do people want perfection – or honesty and change?
