"Lydia Thorpe," a native Australian senator, called Queen Elizabeth of England a colonialist when taking her oath.
According to CBS News, this senator called Queen Elizabeth a “colonialist” when he took the oath of allegiance to Queen Elizabeth to enter the Australian parliament.
Thorpe is the first indigenous Australian to enter parliament. He called the queen a colonialist as he raised his right fist and went to the parliament floor to take the oath.
Although the Australian aborigines are one of the oldest groups living on earth, the British government considers Australia no man’s land.
