If you don't love it!

Recommended Posts

Today a car cut me up & this is what was displayed in the rear window.

Australian flag saying " IF YOU DON'T LOVE IT GO HOME"

My reply,

"I like it but I don't love it"

anyone else know that feeling?

Thank you it has been a long time coming. Wanted to go home a year and a half ago more so than now but just was not possible then due to a number of circumstances.

Uggh, hate that stuff. Insecurity and hostility dressed up as patriotism. What's wrong with quite liking the place, or enjoying it for now?. Why must you have to love it?

I don't like those stickers either, but the ones I see say "If you don't love it ....leave". Especially cos I was in the position where I couldn't really leave, made me uncomfortable. But yes, unnecessary I think.

In my opinion if you are offended by a car sticker then it's def time to leave!

You obviously don't like them! They are tongue in cheek so not meant to tell you that you have to love it! Not really! They are just car stickers! Get one made yourself with I like Australia but don't love it! I'm sure it would be a top seller!

Personally I don't like racist car stickers - whether they are in the UK or Australia. The sentiment behind this sticker is not to welcome immigrants who do love Australia, it's to mark territory. Had enough of that in Belfast.

And your point is? I believe that most people would just see it as a laugh tbh! And it's not because I LOVE oz is because I think that your average Jo blogs has got a sense of humour! If they don't see it that way then that's their problem! To say that you would need a paint job is a bit over the top! My opinion of course!

No, they don't say that you are welcome if you do love Australia - they say that if you don't then get the **** out of our country. It's the Aussie equivalent of "there ain't no black in the Union Jack".

It might be your problem if they dont share your sense of humour!! Nothing like a bit of strategic keying to make a point. I dont think I would be trusting the Aussie sense of humour that far, it's not great at the best of times.

C'mon, just because we thought that that Michael Jackson routine on 'Hey Hey it's Saturday' was hilarious proves we have a sense of humour.
