ARE YOU A BIGOT OR A CONCERNED CITIZEN?
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
It’s hard to deny that multiculturalism is a rich part of Australia’s history. From the early Chinese and Afghans to later the Greeks, Italians and Asians, each has called Australia home in their own way and it was only natural they tended to stick together, it was a security thing... much like we search out Aussies when we travel to a strange land. Nothing wrong with that! China Town, Little Italy and Greece have much to offer in culinary delights and cultures.
But there is no Little Mecca to enjoy and embrace, we are locked out and they are locked in. Stroll Lakemba late one evening at your own risk. Stroll China Town and you’ll be met with big smiles.
There can be no integration with the infidel. Muslims have no intention to embrace our culture, it’s wrong and alien to them. They believe they will soon rule the world and all who stand in their way must be beheaded. Not a good start to assimilation.
Multiculturalism began in earnest in the 60s with the coffee-coloured ambitions of the musical “Hair”, the religious parody of “JC Superstar”, the sexual revolution and the “ban the bomb” brigade. I was very much a part of it and Labor stalwart, Arthur Calwell’s white Australia was lost in the rush to reform.
Whitlam continued with the multicultural push and Gillard/Rudd/Gillard as good as finished it by allowing 30,000 unprocessed country shoppers to live among us, unable to work and reliant of handouts.
So where did we go wrong with the Islamic culture? Or was it the Islamic culture that was wrong for Australia?
Well, we certainly haven’t learnt from the disastrous European and Scandinavian experience with Islam. The Left’s ideal of multiculturalism has hit a brick wall and it seems their only response is to brand concerned Australians as bigots and racists.
Australians have never been bigots, in general we are the most welcoming people on earth, we treasure immigrants of all colours and creeds who want to join us in appreciation of the greatest country in the world. But to refuse to recognise Islam’s dangerous and divisive underbelly is foolhardy.
Let’s face it, industrious, productive and successful people usually vote conservative, those on welfare invariably vote Labor. So, with 80 odd per cent of Muslims on welfare it should be no surprise that the Left will always favour Islamic immigration.
Richard Marles’ announcement that Labor will, “turn back the boats, but only where it is safe to do so”, screams of insincerity, plagiarism and a coming election.
We have the choice of dealing with the threat of Islam in two ways; we either confront it or we appease it and Islam doesn’t care which.
Appeasement allows it to exhibit our weakness and confrontation allows it to accuse us of bigotry, racism and discrimination.
That is why Abbott is betwixt and between, trying to seek a middle ground with Islam... but there is no middle ground with Islam, there never has been, it’s their way or the highway.
But the vast majority of Australians will not concede that two per cent of the population is able to subvert our values and they will express that feeling at the ballot box.
Ask the nicest Muslim you know, if it came to an Australian caliphate, would he choose you as a friend or the local Imam, and if he says you, he is lying.
Ask him if he supports the Islamic State and he will say no, but ask him if he supports their aims and he will equivocate.
Shariah hadiths excuse every Muslim who tells an infidel a lie anyway.
The backward culture of Islam is the only culture in the world that is incompatible with every other culture, it is even incompatible with itself. Every country it has inhabited knows that and until Abbott realises that, he will stay lost in the middle without a solution.
If you are frightened of the Islamic threat (and they want you to be) you have already lost the war.
For Abbott to suggest we are not at war with Islam defies belief! We are currently bombing the Islamic State. They administer a despicable Shariah Law, its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has a degree in Islamic studies, local Muslims have been told to search out ADF members and behead them, the military has been told not to wear uniforms in public, mosques encourage our destruction, and we are forced to finance a war against us by paying more for our groceries.
So, are you prepared to be called a bigot for the sake of your country? It really is a small price to pay?
