Open Letter to Australian Race Discrimination Commissioner

@timsout @nswpolice #auspol #ausnews

Dear Tim Soutphommasane, Race Discrimination Commissioner at the Human Rights Commission,

It was truly excellent to see you denouncing the racist buffoon Sue Wilkins Karen Bailey for her racist and child-abusive rant on a Sydney to Newcastle train last week. I mean, that’s pretty much what the majority of your job is, right? It’s up to you to hold a light to racism in our society when and where you see it and speak to the public about why it is unacceptable. Maybe change a few minds, educate a few dopes? It was also inspiring to see the NSW Police act so quickly to find the woman and have her charged. They even prepared statements to address media outlets.

So why the continued silence regarding online discrimination?

From Nazis and white supremacists to homophobes and sexists, from rape enthusiasts and disability abusers to anti-immigration nut jobs, the Internet is rife with discrimination produced in Australia by Australians who are happy to give their name, location, employment status and photo to their comments. We’ve been immortalising the comments on our website for years. Yet it takes a 50 year old dunce on a train to say the word ‘gook’ and everyone just loses their shit.

So where are you? Where are the State and Federal Police? Nowhere to be seen. It’s depressing to say the very least. Our Race Discrimination Commissioner is absent and our authorities lack interest and power.

So the old biddy has said her apologies under the pseudonym of Sue Wilkins and everybody is breathing a sigh of relief. Thank goodness we got through that, right?

Wrong.

These opinions exist in our society. It’s a fucking plague. These opinions are validated by oxygen thieves like Scott Morrison, Cory Bernardi, Tony Abbott and their bumbling supporter MPs sidekicks and accompanying Murdoch led media circus. These hate-filled discriminatory opinions bubble to the surface on public trains and buses regularly but even more regularly online and nobody appears to give two shits either way.

How can people expect to feel as though they are safe in this country if their sexual orientation, physical ability, country of origin or religion are the focus and target of so much anger and hatred? Who is there to help people who read this shit online? Who is there to help the people who are the victims or onlookers to vile discrimination? I’ve interviewed anonymous police officers several times and have been told regularly that police will not bother charging a person unless they’ve physically abused someone. The Telecommunications Act lacks teeth and it lacks officers who are willing to go after these people.

Here are some screenshots that were taken today. They are from a Facebook group set up to oppose a mosque being built in Kalgoorlie. I’m sure if you ask them on Today Tonight they’ll tell you that their opposition exists because of ‘parking and traffic concerns’ or some other bullshit. But it’s what’s simmering underneath and boiling to the surface of social media that is the all too common truth. Australia is a fucking racist country. End of story.

Do something about it Tim.

Open Letter to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd

openletter

salutation

We have read your new policy on asylum seeker boat arrivals. It is an audacious policy which no doubt took your colleagues and the rest of the ALP by surprise.

Without necessarily supporting what you did we understand why you made the arrangements you did with PNG Prime Minister Peter O’ Neill. In that one gesture you apparently shored up your racist and bigoted constituency in marginal seats, wedged Tony Abbott and his three-word bogan slogans and attempted to appease those ethical and compassionate people with genuine concerns about unsafe boats full of asylum seekers attempting hazardous voyages.

We will not go into the details of the policy. It has been thoroughly reported by the media somewhat starved of controversy in the last week or so, along with the usual commentary from the usual media suspects such as conservative commentator Paul Sheehan, who has spent the last three years telling people what a dreadful government we have but has suddenly discovered that asylum seekers sometimes drown, so desperate are they to find a safe place to live.

We are somewhat surprised that a country your government’s own DFAT travel advice website has warned Australian travellers is a security risk should be deemed acceptable for asylum seekers as a place of settlement. There seems to be a bit of careless racism implicit in that.

So while you tick those boxes off may we remind you that the ongoing hysteria about asylum seekers is not going to go away. That same constituency which you think you have placated will continue to hate and vilify new arrivals, no matter how they arrived in this country.

  • They will continue to defame the small population of Muslims in Australia, those who were born here as well as those amongst the new arrivals.
  • They will continue to abuse women and men in religious garments in the street because they “dress differently”.
  • They will target the 13% of the population who either emigrated from Asia or who are the descendants of those of Asian descent who have lived in Australia for many years, along with the many Asian students here for an education.
  • They will continue to racially abuse people, including children, on buses and trains because they “look different” or “speak different”.
  • These individuals will continue to gather in vile hate groups on social media, and to infest the comments columns of newspapers.

So Kevin we need an undertaking from you that you are going to address this xenophobia, because you and the government are the only ones who can do so.

We want an undertaking that you and your MPs will explicitly address and overturn the unfounded fears and festering hatred of this misguided sector of the electorate, because you are supposed to govern on behalf of normal Australians, not just expediently at election time for the passing whims of the haters.

Then we may again be a fit country to receive and welcome newcomers to a safe and secure life, because at the moment we are not.

In anticipation

Racist, Gun-Toting, Dopey Australian Embarrassments

Yeah um, no. Refugees do not get more money than pensioners. Here’s the proof:

https://theantibogan.wordpress.com/2010/05/01/refugees-get-more-money-than-pensioners/

1. How do you remove people who follow a religion from society? Wouldn’t people just start lying about their religion if Gerard went on a deportation witch hunt? It’s all well and good to want to eliminate people from society… actually, no, it’s not. But Gerard would choose to overlook other dregs just so he can carry out his xenophobic and bigoted whitewash.

2. Does Gerard realise that the vast majority of illegal immigrants are those who fly here and overstay their Visas? There are over 80,000 of these ‘illegals’ in our country right now.

3. Does someone want to let Gerard Scaballagher that Aboriginal people are not the only people who are entitled to financial and housing assistance? As for free cars – WTF?

One day, like so many children-of-bogan-arse-hats, these two children will grow up and wish that daddy hadn’t acted like a complete bell-end on a public social media website using a photo of them in his profile picture.

Meet John Atherton. He’s now into his 4th marriage (no lie – check his Facebook profile out). He’s into fucking up his life and then blaming non-whites. Obviously didn’t get much out of his Catholic education.

(Is that the kind of comment that should be made by someone in the defence force? The kind of guy we give guns to?)

An open letter to Emma West, the racist on the tram

Posted by Rae ⋅ November 29, 2011 ⋅

Emma West

Dear Emma,

You don’t know me. You’re not even aware of my existence, and you’ll never meet me. However, thanks to the power of the internet and the quick thinking of a young woman with a smartphone on the Croydon Tramlink last Sunday, I know of you. I’ve watched you repeatedly as you spat your racist venom all over a tram carriage full of non-whites, while your child sat on your lap.

We’re both 34, Emma. We both grew up in Britain and are both British. That’s where our common ground ends. You wouldn’t be able to tell what my background is from my face or accent, but I am one of the myriad people to whom you object so revoltingly strongly. My father is an immigrant. He’s lived, raised a family, educated his children, built a business and paid taxes in this country. He and his fellows are the backbone of this nation’s economy and culture; they are part of Britain’s history and her future.

Only you and your ilk are blind to this rather obvious fact.

Let me tell you a little bit about Britain, my dear.

Britain’s days as a colonial power ended long ago. Because Britannia so plundered and abused the countries that formed part of her ‘glorious’ empire, her subjects had no option but to come to Britain and build lives for themselves. Not only that, but Britain actively encouraged immigration to rebuild the country after a devastating war in which colonial subjects fought alongside white Britons. And not only that, but Britain has always been a racial melting pot. ALWAYS. You need only look at a history book to see that.

But someone like you won’t do that, will you? It’s far easier for you to remain ignorant and bigoted, to be fed outdated views that have been spoon-fed to you by other, equally ignorant and bigoted individuals. You have a distorted view of history, a perverse sense of your own racial superiority and your place in a modern society.

Forgive me for shattering your illusions, Emma, but “your Britain” doesn’t exist. It hasn’t existed for a long time, and her current survival is to be credited entirely to immigrants. All those jobs that you pass up because they’re ‘beneath’ you? They go to immigrants. The jobs to which you may aspire – though aspiration may be beyond you – will never be yours, because you’re simply too uneducated and ignorant to work in them. So you see people who aren’t the same colour as you making their way in life, while you sway drunkenly on a tram and berate them in the vilest of terms.

So now you’re on remand, charged with a racially aggravated public order offence. No doubt your cause will be championed by the National Front and the EDL. You’ll be a martyr in their eyes when you’re convicted, even if the sentence is little more than a fine. You’ll achieve a degree of fame within a very narrow circle, and notoriety in the wider community. You’ll be reviled, possibly attacked, and you’ll never find work with that kind of offence on your criminal record. Who wants to employ a convicted racist? Tell you what, luv, my dad certainly doesn’t.

What about your poor child? Using that kind of language around him is one disgusting thing; doing it in public is worse; and using it to express the hateful and hate-filled views that you espouse in public is utterly unacceptable. What kind of life are you giving him? And what life will he have once you’re convicted? Because believe you me, you certainly will be convicted.

We have laws against your actions, and laws against your views, precisely because they are unacceptable in a civilised, multicultural, multi-ethnic, multi-racial society. The law sanctions them because they cannot and will not be tolerated in Britain.

This is the Britain you live in, Emma. Welcome.

Darrylfiscus Rocklobsterus aka ‘Shocka—–‘ believes that ‘Australians’ are being killed off.

A few questions arise:

1. When D-train said ‘we would have been close to 100%’, was he speaking about white Australians, or merely ‘Australian-born’ Australians, who could have been the non-white children of non-white migrants?
2. How do we recognise an ‘Australian-born’ in the street? I’ve got an Asian background, and I was born here, as were my parents.
3. Which aspects of our culture/history have been eroded by the increasing intake of migrants?

Life must be really scary when you can’t leave your house for fear of running into someone *shock horror* born outside of Australia..!

The APP Fail Again

The photos below were taken of the Australian Protectionist Pathetics’ most recent public ‘rally’ against immigration and asylum seekers. Led by Balmain resident neanderthal Nicholas time-to-get-the-lube-out Folkes, the rally attracted less than 10 attendees across the course of the day, despite having Facebook group coverage and advertisement on Darrin Hodges’ Protectionist website.

It seems they can’t get enough of failing. (Click below to see other examples of their extreme unpopularity). The rally was held on the fringe of Sydney Uni, and there were three police officers flanking them. Shortly after these pictures were taken, another police vehicle arrived and requested that they move on.
