Violent Racism – Just Another Day in ‘Straya

#auspol #ausmedia #qldpolice

Never mind about the fact that the proposal to change Australia Day to ‘Citizens Day’ has long been proven a hoax by trolls trying to get a bite. No, use it as an opportunity to display your violent, racist attitude.

  1. Pops up earlier every year. I do really enjoy this one though – nothing shows the blind willingness of bigots to swallow any old bullshit quite like this hoax does.

    • Hi people, I know this is not on the topic, but I don’t know who to email. I would like to run a thread on fire bugs. If there was ever a bogan or an undesirable that causes so much destruction and loss of property and innocent lives it’s the fire bug.

      So far the following seems to be the demographic

      Male
      Juveniles
      Volunteer fire fighters.

      A lot of these fires are deliberately lit and as someone who works hard to protect the Australian bush, i feel anger that people can partake in such senseless acts that show no regard for human or animal life.

      More awareness and resources need to channelled into effectively combating this problem. I think a name and shame similar to this site is in order. Hold them accountable. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks guys.

  2. LOL that and their suddenly false and fake support for Jews, particularly in the middle east makes me laugh. As long as the “enemy” is brown, or worse brown and a Muslim or non-christian they will be against it. They would be surprised to learn the people they claim to support (Jews/Israelis/Zionists) are worse then the so called enemy and will use that support to gain influence and eventually undermine them and drop them quick smart as soon as any value from their misguided support is no longer required. To think they support a nation that continues its daily genocide of Palestinians and war mongering right wing politics is scary, we are heading down that path here with the LNP.

    • @Dave Phillips :

      “They would be surprised to learn the people they claim to support (Jews/Israelis/Zionists) are worse then the so called enemy ..”

      They are??

      I’m not so sure that’s right.

      Its a whole other topic and issue anyhow.

      Both sides are human with all the virtues and flaws that involves, Both sides have treated the other pretty appallingly and demonised them and both sides are composed of a a whole range of different people and perspectives and can make good points in their favour and against the other side.

      The same? Maybe. Equally human? Definitely. Worse? I don’t think so. I also really don’t think its helpful or a good thing at all for us to start throwing blame or scapegoating one particular side in this complex mega-polarised international issue here.

  3. If nothing else they have a spectacularly good command of the English language. Abuse gives bogans time to think, which in itself is a a bit of a problem if there’s nothing there.

  4. Rural suicide is a big problem. I’m not going to judge. These people all have guns and with the hot weather too much alcohol, possibly drugs, caffeine and nicotine it’s adds to any situational stress the individual might be experiencing. The use of the gun should be reduced. As far as I know it’s Australia day. The British settlement is the most significant event in modern Australia. There was really nothing before they came. It was just a land that had been sitting there for thousands of years.

    • Oh you were doing so well … until you said “as far as you know” it’s Australia Day (it is Australia Day and no one in their right mind is arguing otherwise) and claimed that thousands of years of Aboriginal heritage is nothing.

      If only you had left those bits out!

      • Well I think that the Aboriginal history is important also. They have been here for thousands of years, but I think the celebration comes more from the British settlement of Australia. I think that Australia day should remain Australia day and I think that Aboriginals should celebrate it. Celebrate that it’s the place that it is and that it’s not occupied by the Japanese or the Chinese, because it could have very easily have been a different place had history taken a different course in WW2.

        I promise that I didn’t mean anything at all about the Aboriginals I was referring to migrants that want the day changed to citizens day. I think All Australians should celebrate Australia day. It’s a very inclusive day.

        • It’s not the first time I’ve heard controversy about Australia day. I’ve heard people call it invasion day and all sorts. It’s our national day and the British settlement happens to be part of our history like it or not. Same with the Aboriginals as the Traditional owners and first Australians.

        • Invasion Day (and similar names) are linked to Aboriginal rights rather than new migrants. It’s not like we’re in danger of officially calling it Invasion Day though.

          Having a national day like Australia Day is important, and yes we’ve done a half-decent job of making it inclusive – but surely you can understand why many Aborigines feel excluded when it actually commemorates the day that Captain Phillip raised the British flag and officially began the invasion of their country? And even then, the arguments are about changing the date rather than changing the name. If you think about it, it’s almost impossible that the name will never be changed. There is nothing inherently controversial at all about the name. It’s just what the country is called. It’s not like Foundation Day (which was recently changed to WA Day) where the Euro-centric focus is right there in the title.

          So again, don’t worry. The Citizen’s Day thing is just a hoax.

          But let’s allow our imaginations to go crazy for a second. Let’s imagine that it’s not a hoax. Let’s imagine that the country is teeming with people that want the name changed. Does that really justify the ugly, racist, violent hate that you see here (or much, much worse if you look at Dhakir’s facebook page)? Does it justify the handful of people who will take that anger further and commit acts of racial violence – acts which we’ve seen are often just against innocent young people who happen to look ethnic? Could ANYTHING justify that?

          And just how inclusive are we making Australia Day when things like that happen?

        • @andytallman101 : let’s allow our imaginations to go crazy for a second. Let’s imagine that it’s not a hoax.

          Very well said and seconded by me.

        • Thanks astro. Obviously I don’t put Laura in this category. She seems quite reasonable, but yeah the people that get really up in arms about these issues could do with a little perspective.

          Also, a correction to my reply above …
          *… it’s almost impossible that the name will EVER be changed …

  5. Rural culture needs to move away from guns and alcohol. If the only comment that I make that is deemed constructive is this, it’s the rural community should stop with the alcohol and do away with the guns.

  6. Had a look at Dhakir’s profile. His comment was silly – I’m thinking it’s a fake profile set up to bait bogans, but I’m not sure. He has also apologised profusely for the comment.

    However, the amount of violent abuse he is getting is incredible. What AB have shown here is only a tiny tiny bit, and far from the worst of it.
