Something I want you to see-but wish didn’t exist
When I arrived at work this morning, this is what I found. Ripped up banners is one thing (they were left outside the office), but the letter left with them is something else altogether.
Reading the first line of the letter was sickening: ‘The only thing that should be authorised is your deportation 2 China”.
I have posted the letter here because – election or not – the best thing that can come out of this sort of racist, homophobic and xenophobic attack is that we speak out when it happens and expose it.
I wanted you to see it because I know that so many of us stand together each day to fight this kind of discrimination and hatred – in our local communities and in our laws.
Whether you were born in Australia or arrived here as a migrant or refugee, whatever your sexuality or gender or religion, we all deserve to be treated equally with dignity and respect.
Racism has no place in modern Australia. Homophobia has no place in Australia. We are better than that.
The initials at the bottom are “JF”. Such a hero. We’ll just call it “Moron”.
We managed to transcribe Moron’s scribblings below:
What should be authorised is deporting you back 2 China
Fuck your authorisation on refugee with rights the boats should be shot & sunk
Fuck bringing low life Muslims to a Christian country
Fuck you again with your authorisation with marriage equality face it it won’t happen Vx (sic) gas should rage, STD,AIDS, it will then stop
Fuck teaching our kids its OK for 2 faggots to hold hands kiss and walk down the street together
Same as to lesbians what difference would that make
Gas would work in a day
Best way to stop it
But it’s people like you, that have low self esteem, that advertise this shit
As for your banners they were all down in a few hours
Fuck off, get out of.
Your not wanted
Don’t you see it?
Don’t you get it?
Yes you fucking idiot we “get” what you are – a miserable snivelling worthless racist bigot with no brains, like all of your kind.
Australia needs to address its mental health problems – such as Moron “JF”.
