CPAC: Senator Jacinta Price says Penny Wong ‘bolted for the door’ after her maiden speech


Firebrand Senator Jacinta Price said her maiden parliamentary speech sent a ‘squirming’ Penny Wong bolting to the door rather than shake her hand.

The Indigenous politician from the Northern Territory made the comments during a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Sydney on Saturday.

Her speech included an attack against Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s push for an Indigenous Voice to Parliament and took aim at transgender and large people.

'Nothing told me I had my message any louder and any clearer than seeing that I had effectively managed to crawl right under the skin of Penny Wong,' Senator Price said

Senator Price claimed her maiden speech, which she made on July 27, let the ‘woke sycophantic spineless Labor government’ know ‘their statements were fashioned from fantasy and lies’.

‘I relished every moment of delivering the cold hard truth and watching them squirm and grimace,’ the CLP senator told the gathering.

‘Nothing told me I had my message any louder and any clearer than seeing that I had effectively managed to crawl right under the skin of Penny Wong.’

Senator Price said an even clearer indication of Senator Wong’s displeasure was illustrated when she did a ‘bolt’ out of parliament rather than shake her ‘First Nations hand and congratulate me on my first speech’, as is the custom.

That was not the last awkward interaction between the two women, according to Senator Price.

She mocked Senator’s Wong’s claim she had been ‘triggered’ by One Nation leader Pauline Hanson’s demand that Greens Senator Mehreen Faruqi ‘go back to Pakistan’.

Senator Hanson had made the comment in a tweet before doubling down on her attack on Tuesday when she offered to take Senator Faruqi ‘to the airport’.

Senator Wong, who was born in Malaysia, condemned Senator Hanson’s comments ‘without reservation’ in an emotionally charged speech.

She admitted she’s still triggered by bigotry as she backed a parliamentary push to condemn Senator Hanson’s speech.

‘I think they’re appalling, and they’re comments that have been levelled at me countless times since I arrived in this country, and I remember getting them as a kid in the schoolyard,’ Senator Wong said. 

Senator Price slammed her response before accusing the foreign affairs minister of being a hypocrite and acting like ‘an expert on all things First Nation’.

‘Despite the fact she lectures off on the floor of the Senate about what us Aboriginal folks really mean while simultaneously deriding me and our good friend and fellow hypocrite, Senator Thorpe, for calling Wong out for attempting to paint us both with the same brush because we’re Aboriginal,’ she said. 

She also took issue with the recent push by the federal government to introduce a Voice to Parliament and Senator Wong’s support for it.

‘I put it to Wong, and I don’t think she liked it very much, but I did put it to her that perhaps we need to co-design an Asian Voice to Parliament,’ Senator Price said.

‘So, that policy that effects Asian-Australians can be their responsibility and any I time I need expert advice on how to better improve Wong’s life I can just consult with the Asian Voice.’

Senator Price continued her strong campaign against the proposed Indigenous Voice to Parliament, which she labelled as ‘insane’ and an attempt to create ‘racial separatism and a permanent victim category for those whose skin has ‘brown tint’.

‘We can’t sit this out because we are scared of being vilified by name-calling woke bullies,’ Senator Price said.

‘We cannot have fear because fear creates an insidious vacuum for the insidious woke to occupy while spreading the divisive rhetoric and propaganda.

Together we can turn this nation back onto the path of common sense and sound thinking.

‘Every voice is a voice.’

Senator Price veered off in her speech to slam transgender activists and large people.

She called out the Left’s ideology for promoting body positivity while allowing trans activists to continue ‘playing God’ and ‘surgically remove healthy body parts’.
