Anti-woke American Matt Walsh takes another swipe at Australia

An anti-awakening American commentator has jokingly suggested that Australia should be invaded and returned to its roots as a penal colony.

Matt Walsh’s tongue-in-cheek comments come in the wake of several news articles after he branded Australia ‘the weakest, most woke and lamest country on earth’.

The political activist initially commented on reality survival program Alone Australia, which he described as “unintentionally the funniest thing on TV.”

He called out producers, claiming they did not choose “gritty, skilled, survivalists” as participants, suggesting they valued political correctness over these qualities.

Now, apparently baffled by the Australian media’s interest in his deliberately provocative comments, Walsh has suggested the country should be invaded by the US.

“I think Australia should be invaded,” Walsh said.

“For his own sake, we need to invade and conquer Australia, and from what I’ve seen that will only take about three to four hours.”

The provocateur, who rose to fame with his documentary What is a Woman, which attacked the transgender community, suggested that US forces would “round up all the woke, lame Australians and drive them inland.”

‘WWe will make a reservation for them where they can live and the cool Australians will be freed and we will send them to live on New Zealandwhich is basically Australia, but colder,” he added.

Walsh then proposed taking Australia back to its roots.

“We will turn it back into a prison colony and we will ship our prisoners to Australia,” he said.

‘Because that was Australia’s heyday, that was Australia at its peak. If you had boatloads of criminals, you dropped them off on the coast of Australia and just said, “Good luck. We’ll never see you again.”

Walsh added: “We will destroy all cities. I’m not advocating that we harm anyone, we’ll get rid of everyone first. Send the woke people to desert reservations, send the others to New Zealand and we’ll start sending our prisoners there.

‘That’s my plan. This is how we fix this thing. I care so much about Australia that I am willing to let it be conquered to restore it.

“And the great thing is that we all know based on recent history that when America conquers a country, it solves everything. It makes everything better.’

Walsh said he had previously been a fan of Australia.

“I say this as someone who, again, has always loved Australia, at least from afar,” he said.

‘I was a big fan of Steve Irwin, I love Outback Steakhouse’s blooming onion, so I know a lot about Australian culture. I am really steeped in Australian culture and so it pains me to see what it has become.”

During the pandemic, Walsh has been critical of Covid lockdowns and vaccine mandates, which were strictly imposed across Australia.
