Um, we call you racists because…:
(Note: If you were wondering why so often we categorise racism with Islamaphobia, you only need to read a few of these to understand why).
Below are comments from real Australians, most of whom would never have even met a refugee. And if they had, they wouldn’t even know it. Refugees/Asylum seekers are real people with families, fleeing countries for fear of violence and persecution. They do not have the luxury of browsing the Internet in their lounge rooms with a cup of coffee, checking out idyllic places to casually move their families. They can’t simply pop down to the post office/immigration office and say that they were thinking of leaving the country. The situation in various parts of the world is not too dissimilar to the regime of the Nazis. The role played by people smugglers is not too dissimilar to the Germans who housed and protected fleeing Jews, the only difference being the fact that they are charging money for the very fact that they themselves are risking their own lives to help others. And rather than show any form of compassion to these people, these survivors, who have pooled all of their belongings just to finance a chance to get one or two family members onto a boat that might not even make it out of the country, Australians are laughing at their plight and demanding that they be shot and killed, and left to drown in icy waters. Imagine if it was a boatload of horses… Racist Aussies tend to feel better about their racism by identifying with a balancing humanity cause, such as being anti-animal cruelty, or anti-child abuse. And their excuse for being so cold-hearted in their demands for human casualties? Apparently all of the people in the boats are terrorists. Ignoring the fact that terrorists are generally people with money, contacts and plane tickets, and that over 90% of Asylum seekers are found to be genuinely fleeing inhumanity, some Australians refuse to give a shit.
And while it seems to be perfectly acceptable to demand that boat people are killed, I would find it perfectly acceptable that these people who voice these opinions are locked up, as they are dangerous minded individuals – many of whom in charge of raising children. Absolutely fucking disgusting.
Please refrain from punching your computer screen when you get to the bottom of these comments. The sad thing is that this isn’t even the tip of the iceberg. Not even close. Theantibogan files are overflowing in the thousands from screenshots captured and emails from concerned citizens around Australia.
Sorry you had to see this. Regretful that this isn’t even the tip of the iceberg.
