‘Love it or Leave’ – The Irrationality of Racial Bigotry in Australia. | Vibewire


It’s a line you’ve either overheard at a bar spewed by a drunken nationalist or immortalised on a sticker on the back of a ute. It’s a line you’ve either unequivocally agreed with or awkwardly shifted away from. Theantibogan is a website that does neither. It aggressively challenges the very origins of the catch phrase that has divided a nation.

Referring to itself as an anonymous entity playing Internet watchdog, it republishes the diatribes of people making publicly racist and other forms of bigoted comments under the guise of patriotism, the protection of a so-called constitution of Freedom of Speech and a defence of a so far undefined Australian ‘culture’.

The hypocrisy of the ‘love it or leave’ line is that the very people who are touting it are usually the ones who are so outwardly fed up with the state of the nation. They exhibit no love for the culturally diverse, progressive and educated Australian society that has been built on the backs of migrants. Australia truly is a multicultural country with one out of every two people either born overseas or having a relative born overseas. It would seem that if you’re the kind of person who believes in the ‘love it or leave’ mantra, you must either learn to love or put up with multiculturalism – or pack your bags.

It seems that racism has always been a subtext in Australian society from the invasion of Australia and the declaration of Terra Nullius (the idea that Aborigines were not really people, but vexatious fauna) to the White Australia Policy and the subsequent decades of discrimination towards Asians, Italians, Greeks, Indians and other scary, slightly different looking lifeforms.

Successive Australian governments have continued to disadvantage Aboriginal Australia, giving with the one hand and taking with the other. Meanwhile the rest of society watches on, unwilling to challenge the frequently presented negative generalisation that Aboriginal people are all drunken criminals.

Last week, the Australian Football League (AFL) promoted ‘Indigenous Round’ which was supposed to slide us harmoniously into National Reconciliation Week. Tens of thousands of true blue Aussies cracked the shits at Adam Goodes who pointed out a girl in the crowd who aggressively screamed at him, calling him an ‘ape’. Later on she claimed she didn’t know that the term was racist or offensive in any way, much to the soothing tuts and nods of those defending freedom of speech.

Many have been quick to denounce her actions but a similar amount of people have been quick to defend her. Perhaps she should have taken a ‘love it or leave’ approach to Aboriginals who can play football, vote and be counted in the National census. Security asked her to leave.

In 2011, one in seven people was racially discriminated against, which is nearly 3 million people. Nearly half of our population hailing from a culturally diverse background has experienced racism and three out of every four Indigenous Australians regularly experience racism. Nearly 30% of people living in NSW and Queensland harbour negative views about Muslims and it can be argued that such irrational resentment can contribute to a shift towards extremism for some misguided young men.

Islamaphobia is rife in Australia with sensationalist media outlets like Today Tonight, A Current Affair and various Murdoch rags fanning the flames whenever there is a slow news day. So desperate are these aspiring journalists to hit a nerve and attract publicity to a sensitive story that they rarely bother to illustrate the thoughts and feelings of mainstream Muslims in Australia, instead choosing to interview underground garage-preaching shady sheikhs ad nauseum about how stoning women who have been raped should be part of an Australia that Islam apparently wants shifted away from democracy and equality.

So where does the ‘love it or leave it’ mantra fit in here? In 2010, Australia welcomed fewer than 2% of refugees worldwide, yet after reading an issue of The Daily Telegraph or the Herald Sun on any given day, one would be forgiven for thinking that there were hordes of faux asylum-seekers literally docking their cruiseliners at Bondi and hacking through the beach-goers with machetes and Qurans. Yet when one takes a closer look at where refugees are actually coming from around the world, we can see that out of the top refugee contributing countries, Burma (Myanmar), Bhutan, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Ethiopia are all healthily represented – all with Muslim minorities. 

The ‘love it or leave’ and the ‘f— off we’re full’ approaches are divisive and destructive to the cause of cultural diversity and societal harmony. It can be argued that people caught up in image and identity inferiority are more inclined to become extremist and isolationist. If there’s one way to radicalise a person risking their life by escaping from a country full of war and terror, it’s to label them as being the very scum they’ve run away from.

Why risk a self-fulfilling prophecy by trying on the notion that all human beings can find commonality and share a sense of community with one another, regardless of background or religion? These guys wouldn’t.

Party for Fascism Freedumb and the pathway to fail

Nicholas Folkes and his fast-diminishing fan club, now called the Party for Freedumb or something equally dopey, are the Don Quixotes of the far right.


Don Niqi does the stupid again

You would think that at some stage some kind person would take them aside and point out what muppets they are. But instead they keep on the same pathway to fail.

The pathway to fail in this instance was Sussex Street Sydney on Sunday 20th June outside the closed-for-the-weekend Labor Council office during World Refugee Week. And with typical strategic foresight the Pffs decided to hold their gigantic big huge awesome demo. Something about visa overstayers…?

1. on a Sunday in the middle of winter
2. in what is effectively a narrow one way street

To top it all off Sussex Street is almost in Chinatown. How the bogots must have been filled with fear to see the thousands of local and overseas Asians who flock there at weekends to sample the retail and culinary delights of nearby Haymarket.

Here is Niqi’s pathetic little hate gathering.

Thousands  Hundreds A few Muslim haters shivering outside an evil green socialist left-wing building with a blue car.

Thousands Hundreds A few Muslim haters shivering outside an evil green socialist left-wing building with a blue car.

Here is the real Rally for Refugees, attracting hundreds of people held at the Town Hall on the same day and featuring well-known guest speakers.

We can tell you who featured at Sussex Street. Niqi’s new Sancho Panza, Ralphski.


Here’s Ralphski all kitted up in hate gear. He has also come to our attention before.

Ralph also likes to contact women he doesn’t even know. That must be why he is currently desperate and dateless. Note the breathtaking sophistication of the message.


Ah well he always has Niqi. Niqi doesn’t like women all that much either.

Now Niqi was it really fair to subject those 15 odd definitely mentally impaired racists to the horrors of multicultural Sydney with all those scary people of a different colour and all that delicious foreign food when all they want to do on a cold Sunday is to huddle at home like troo Strayans and watch people whom they think look like them on the telly?

And always the copycats, they cannot even copy-and-paste their own party correctly. Niqi has long insisted that his new Facebook group party is modelled on his hero Geert Wilders’ Freedom Party.

However there is one glaring difference. Wilders it seems has no problems with GLBTI rights and same sex marriage. Everything with his limited issue party is subsumed to the task of ridding the Netherlands and Europe of “teh_mooslems”.

By contrast Niqi’s PFF party is all over the shop with “policies” on everything grabbed from a motley array of far right sewers including Fred Nile’s Christian Democrats, Niqi’s former home the Australian Pathetic Party, the League of Rights, One Nation… you get the picture?

We won’t bore you with a link but if you want to have a laugh just Google “Party for Freedom”.

Niqi has also been somewhat out of favour with certain other nutzis because he has an Asian wife – despite his well-publicised vilification of Filipino women and his championing of white exceptionalism.

You can read all about it here

And here’s a demo evaluation from some senior sources in the Pff

Some Muslim haters spin some yarns

Some Muslim haters spin some yarns

Response to the racists on the Melbourne bus

And we bet like Adam we could all list some “troo bloo” icons which are actually from somewhere else.


While we’re at it, even one of the bogots’ favourite current affairs shows has come out in favour of anti-racism.

Tough luck bogots. Time to rethink your attitudes.

Joe Hockey: Address to the Islamic Council of Victoria

Joe Hockey banner
26th April 2012



Like many Australians with olive skin I often get asked about my heritage. And I always get a puzzled look from people when I say that my father was born in Bethlehem.

They tend to skirt around the question of what that means because they expect someone who is part Palestinian to be a Muslim.

They often don’t know how to breach the subject of faith and how to deal with the issue of cultural diversity.

This inquisitive shyness is understandable. For those of us who have grown up in culturally diverse homes it is somewhat amusing.

As a young boy, every Sunday was dedicated to our extended family get togethers.

In the morning my “Sitty” (grandmother), my aunty and my Australian mum would make kibbe, tabouli and hummus.

Over lunch – on countless occasions – when my Uncle Eddie said that he hoped one day to grow his menswear business everybody would say “insh’Allah”.

When Uncle Jack would say he hoped to be able to go on a family holiday everyone would say “insh’Allah”.

And when my father would say he hoped, one day, his children would do well at school everyone would say “insh’Allah”.

The fact that all these things became a reality is testimony to the fact that diversity in Australia is alive and well.

And I’ll let you into a secret… my father still counts in French, can talk to friends in Hebrew, and even occasionally yell at me in Arabic. I’m jealous of the seven languages he speaks.

This is the story of cultural diversity, and it is important we embrace it.

Faith and politics

When I was sworn in to Parliament in 1996 some people warned me to avoid discussing issues of religion and faith, even inside my constituency of North Sydney.

I was told that whatever you say, you will end up offending someone.

But despite this, in 1998, my second year in Parliament, I chose to tackle the combined issues of both faith and religion head on, when I took my father back to his birthplace in Bethlehem.

As you can imagine, it was an emotional journey for us both.

When he left war torn Palestine back in 1948 as a Christian educated 21 year old, he swore as he crossed the Allenby Bridge over the grand Jordan River that the land he was born in had no future for a young man.

So 50 years later as we walked amongst the refugees in Gaza and then Amman, my father sadly had his youthful anxieties confirmed. A new generation of young Arabs shared his despair that they had no hope, they had no voice, they had no freedom and so they had no future.

Of course the Arab Spring is changing this world.

We were shocked when it began with the self immolation of a young Tunisian street vendor that started the revolts which led to the toppling of Ben Ali in January last year. Tunisia is well on the way to being a successful democracy.

After Ben Ali fell, we cheered as young Christians and Muslims then took to Tahrir Square in Cairo to protest against the denial of democracy and ultimately force a long overdue regime change.

And we continue to be horrified, as I have said on a number of occasions in Parliament, when we hear reports of 12,000 Syrian deaths, caused by Bashar al-Assad’s vicious regime in Syria.

In March a video appeared on YouTube of an empty street with a lost three-year-old boy running aimlessly in search of safety, only to be shot at by Syrian snipers in a nearby building.

In a moment of courage akin to the famous defiance of a tank in Tiananmen Square, a young man ran onto the street, to create a human shield between the snipers and the toddler. A young life was saved.

This happened to a three-year-old boy – an innocent three-year-old boy.

A close observer would note there is a common narrative amongst all these movements.

Young people, motivated by their faith, were taking control of their own destiny by demanding their rights from totalitarian governments.

For me, the most powerful image of the Arab Spring was seeing young Coptic Christian protestors in Tahrir Square forming a human shield around Muslim protestors during prayer. Hours later, Muslim protestors reciprocated by guarding Christian churches during services in downtown Cairo.

I am not afraid to recognise that across the world the values of faith have made society all the more richer – and this includes the contribution Islam has made to our society here in Australia.

While I aspire to be, once again, a Minister of the State, and not of the Church, I have long argued that a secular society imbued with the values that faith engenders will be stronger not weaker.

This is because the values that the great religions teach are the burning beacon of a just, fair and compassionate society based on truth and respect for a common humanity.

We can no longer just see ourselves as citizens of a country, but we must see ourselves as citizens of the world.

The essential message of all faiths – that we should love our neighbour as we love ourselves – is contained within Islam as much as Christianity, in Judaism as it is in Buddhism.

As many Muslims tell me, Muhammad spoke in his final sermon “Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you”.

I could not think of a more important lesson we can teach our children.

To judge Islam based on the actions of extremists and terrorists would be no different than judging Christianity on the actions of those who have over the centuries committed atrocities in the name of Christianity.

Whether this be the brutality of the Crusades, the destruction of Constantinople, or the defence of Apartheid by Afrikaans churches in South Africa – these are not shining moments for Christianity and those of us who are Christians would reject that these were deeds properly undertaken in the name of our religion.

I find it hard to believe that any God would call on people to stone unbelievers, invade lands to convert people to another faith, or prevent women from having the same life opportunities as men.

Yet some people throughout history have used faith to justify all of these actions.

The people that commit atrocities in the name of Islam are forgetting the fact that Islam, democracy and compassion have been linked for hundreds of years.

Bernard Lewis, Professor of Islamic History, at Princeton University recognised this when he noted that:

“The medieval Islamic world…offered vastly more freedom than any of its predecessors, its contemporaries and most of its successors”[1]

Islam led the world in promoting freedom for hundreds of years, and there is no reason Islam will not continue to be pivotal in promoting liberty in society for centuries to come.

Islam in Australia

In Australian history, Islam has had a focal place since well before Federation.

The legendary Burke and Wills, responsible for one of the most important expeditions in Australian history, were ably guided and assisted by a number of central Asian camel traders in the 1860s.

The diaries and records of the duo pay testament to the work of these camel traders, particularly Dost Mohamed a Pashtun from modern day Afghanistan. They were highly regarded because the Afghans possessed the skills to survive for long periods of time in unforgiving and harsh desert conditions.

The colonial administration in Victoria noted at the time that:

“The camels from Afghanistan would be comparatively useless unless accompanied by their native drivers.”[2]

They got that right! The camel drivers contributed more than just the skills of navigation and survival in harsh desert conditions. They are responsible for the introduction of Islam to Australia, and the construction of Mosques through Australia’s outback.

It was surprising for me to find out in a recent trip to Adelaide that Australia’s first mosque was built in 1861 at Marree in South Australia.[3]

When talking to a young man last year who was part of the Young Muslim Leadership Program in Parliament House, an annual program I take delight in addressing each year, I was told of how he was preparing to go on a ‘mosque-crawl’, visiting each and every mosque throughout Australia’s central outback.

That is no mean feat considering that over the last 150 years more than 30 mosques have been built across remote Australia.

If Islam has been able to exist in Australian society peacefully for more than one and a half centuries, I have no doubt it will continue to play a significant role into the future.

I know from the likes of Melbourne Academic Susan Carland, Australia Post Chief Executive Officer Ahmed Fahour, Richmond’s Bachar Houli, former Rugby League legend Hazem El Masri, and most recently Imam Afroz Ali, who eloquently and passionately spoke against forced marriages on the ABC Four Corners program the other night, that Islam in Australia is in safe hands.

Role of Faith

Finally tonight, I would also like to touch on the role of secularism in the modern world.

We have all seen faith used as a tool to justify repression of freedom of thought in the Islamic world, most recently in Syria.

For many years, some governments in the Middle East were propped up by the international community because they were deemed ‘secular’. But a closer examination of these states proves that authoritarian regimes are consistently brutal whether they are secular or not.

The defence of authoritarianism by secular regimes is that minority rights are protected when without the regime they would not. That is …authoritarianism may be bad but if we did not have it ethnic minorities would engage in conflict.

History is littered with conflicting stories; however in modern times there is no reason to believe that Christians, Muslims and Jews cannot successfully and peacefully live side by side in a Muslim majority country.

Modern day Australia is testimony to the fact that religious groups can live in harmony.

Secularism cannot be used as an excuse to subvert democracy and restricting the legitimate aspirations of millions of people. For using secularism as a reason to restrict democracy, in the way it has occurred in Syria, offends both the principle of secularism, and of democracy.

Instead, there is an important role of faith in any secular society, for restricting the role of faith in society is the antithesis of secular behaviour.

At the core of any secular state must be that the practice of any religion is a human right.

But part of the trade-off for a tolerant and democratic secular society is the requirement that we abide by the laws. They are the laws created by the Parliament and the court. They are the only laws that mandate behaviour in our country.

So whilst custom may have its place there is no room for conflicting rules that seek to mandate or restrict behaviour in direct conflict with our Australian laws.

Whilst differences in beliefs will always exist, we must focus on the common ground of all faiths and cultures, rather than the differences.

Noted Muslim theologian and Oxford Professor Tariq Ramadan, not a usual source for me, spoke recently of the challenge that diversity poses, but offers a comprehensive solution:

“The point is not to integrate systems, values and cultures with other systems, but to determine – in human terms – spaces of intersection where we can meet on equal terms.”[4]

For the sceptics of diversity, the strongest argument is to make people aware that part of society’s many successes has been because of diversity. One of our failings over recent decades is that diversity has become such an ingrained part of Australian society that some people don’t realize that they are living in one of the most diverse societies in the world.

Of course globalisation has made diversity a more relevant part of everyday life.

Information and trade flows make diversity a way of life for more and more people.

Throughout history commerce has lowered the social barriers between people and societies.

When people have social or business relations with people of other faiths and cultures they start to realize the aspects that unite us, not divide us.

This is the power of human relationships.

For example, Australia should be taking greater advantage of the emerging insatiable demand across Asia for sophisticated financial services.

The number of High Net Worth Individuals in Indonesia, that is individuals with more than $1m in investable assets excluding property, will almost triple by 2015 to nearly 100,000. These wealthy Indonesians will hold close to $500 billion worth of wealth. This is the fastest rise in Asia.

This is a tremendous opportunity for Australian business to develop and provide a high standard range of products and services for a demanding market. By offering diverse products and Islamic banking and finance products in particular, Australia has the capacity to benefit from greater capital flows, more affordable investment and a more sophisticated and diverse financial services sector.

However, there remain regulatory obstacles, such as the issue of double taxation. The UK’s Financial Regulator, the FSA, has summarised their approach to Islamic Banking as ‘no obstacles, but no special favours’.

In Australia we should not treat Islamic Banking differently or preferentially, but we should be mindful of making Australia an attractive market for all types of financial services, provided they are in line with Australia’s high national standards and stable banking system.
At very least, it is a business opportunity available to all Australian business.


The role of faith in Australian society is an underestimated commodity.

Australia is made all the richer by the role that all religions play in our society.

Forming part of the rich mosaic of Australia, Islam is contributing to Australia in its own special way.

But we cannot afford to be complacent.

When it comes to diversity, the motto of the Returned Services League rings true ‘The price of liberty is eternal vigilance’.

Australia must continue to be proud of our diversity, but we also must be vigilant to protect both our diversity and our liberty.

Thank you.

I’m white, Christian and live happily among Muslims

The Punch

Simon from Lakemba

by Simon from Lakemba

16 Mar 06:00am

I have been asked by The Punch to offer a different point of view about Muslims in Australia. Being a white, Christian, male living in Australia’s most populated Muslim suburb, I should be the most vilified person in Australia according to some fellow Punchers.

Just another street in just another suburb

Well the truth is, I’m not.

My background has many different layers and stepping stones to it. I was born in the mid 80s in Broken Hill to a dad that was local and a mum that was from Wilcannia. Growing up, she was one of the only few white families in town but never had a bad word to say about Aborigines, irrespective of how the situation is there now.

We then moved to Canberra settling in Tuggeranong or “Nappy Valley” as it was called. This is where my first interaction with Muslims happened.

The local primary school had a very multicultural feel to it and my main friends were Lebanese who all seemed to live on one particular street. Being young, I was never aware that he was “different” than me. I never noticed that he didn’t eat pork, believed in a different religion or that his family talked differently than mine.

The moment when things changed was September 11, 2001. I was in high school at the time, in year 10 when this event happened, and it was a difficult time for everybody. My Muslim friends didn’t know how to act, my fellow students didn’t know how to act and my teachers weren’t too sure either.

For the first week not too much had changed, but for the weeks after the anger increased, the whispers increased, the stares were more noticeable. The first instance when “Islamophobia” happened was when the bus driver saw me and my Muslim friends and shut the door in our face and drove off. Then the “terrorists” taunts started.

Another friend had a group full of kids in a car stop and surround her and pull her hijab off. I saw a change in my friends. They became closer to their religion, mainly to go deeper into it to find out why it happened. One particular friend’s mum started to wear a hijab, which she never had before. She was then called a terrorist where she hadn’t been before.

These taunts would continue over the years. These same friends now have double degrees from the ANU in law and politics and engineering.

In 2008 I moved to the Sydney suburb of Lakemba as it was affordable, 15 minutes from work and not too far from the M5 freeway and city. At first people were asking “why?”.

“There are Muslims there, crime, you won’t fit in,” they said.

All those fears haven’t been realised. There is actually more crime in Sutherland Shire, where Cronulla is located, than my local Canterbury Shire. My local Butcher is halal, but so what?

The local Muslim community, whilst never publicised, has raised money for the floods. It raised $26,000 in one single Friday night at Lakemba Mosque, and also had a van helping clean the flood-damaged areas in Brisbane.

They support the local Canterbury Bulldogs, and are arguably the most passionate group of supporters in the NRL. They are also keen players of sport, as evidenced by Saturday mornings at the local Lakemba playing fields.

Unfortunately the bad apples within the community bring the good people down and that’s what the media will tend to focus on.

With more integration and time, I feel the Muslim community will be a great asset to Australia, but that will take an open mind from my fellow Australians as well.


Jay From Stormfront: “I do not want people to go extinct”

Dear Jay,

Here is your response, you attention-starved dropkick.

“Cleric Preston politely states that anti-racism is a codeword for anti-white and he’s called a mutant? What a bogan!”

Racism is a combination of prejudice and power. And sadly prejudice is a deeply ingrained human trait. Globally, white people are the dominant group, and in politics, economics, the media and all aspects of society, this power is used every day. It starts from the top and filters down to white people everywhere, regardless of their individual economic situation. At the highest level, when President Bush tells Palestinians a different leader must take the place of the man they elected, he’s treating them as second-class human beings. When the leaders of western economic powers deny fair trading terms to African countries, they are doing exactly the same. And the images of these pathetic victims help fuel more stereotypes about their “inferior” status. Every day the white power structure – be it global, national or local – makes decisions which impinge on the lives of non-white people.

“How many white countries have a fertility rate below replacement? How many are being swamped by non-whites?”

Statistically, white people make up approximately 10% of the global population, based loosely on definitions of black and white. In 1950, white people made up around 26% of the global population. But with 74% of the world’s non-white population also procreating, did you really expect your whites to make up ground? And how do you categorise whites and blacks anyway? If we say that Africans are considered ‘black’, does that categorisation apply equally to Nigerians, Egyptians and South Africans? You’ve got one choice Jay – get the fuck over it. Being a part of a scungy, largely-unknown underground white supremacist society in a country that makes up less than 3.5% of the global population isn’t going to save the ‘white’ species you dopey motherfucker. It doesn’t matter how many Internet forums you post your rehashes on, nor does it matter how many tissues you wipe your cock over after doing so, you’re part of the minority – despite what your back-slapping comrades say.

“If you take a look at the UN – the most anti-white organisation in the world (and loved here), it effectively agrees with us, NOT you frigging anti-white racist bogots.”

LOL okay darling, whatever. Let’s take a closer look at the UN Convention on Genocide:

In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

  • (a) Killing members of the group; (killing white people is not permitted or encouraged in Australia)
  • (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; (no evidence given regarding how immigration programs, largely from ‘white’ countries affects our population’s mental health)
  • (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (everyone’s allowed to fuck – deal with it)
  • (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; (the Baby Bonus has been a mainstayer in Australian legislative policy for many years, encouraging Australians to procreate)
  • (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group. (no evidence of this occurring to ‘white’ Australians….)

“Non-white immigration and multiculturalism are deliberately inflicted upon us.”

Perhaps, but immigration does not (a) kill white people; (b) cause physical or mental harm to those who didn’t already have it; (c) contribute to the physical destruction of our country or people; (d) prevent white people from fucking; (e) transform white people into non-white people.

“We never wanted either and we still don’t want either.”

Oh poor baby. If you’re feeling particularly Google-savvy, you may want to provide evidence that the wider population in Australia opposes multiculturalism. You won’t find any national polls or surveys that find that the majority of Australians are with you, only the contrary.

“Australia was founded as a WHITE nation. Within decades it will be an ASIAN nation. This is genocide by definition and only a bogan would support it.”

Australia was founded as a white nation because the first people to come here and steal land off the Indigenous Aborigines were white. That was over 220 years ago, long before the Internet and your circle-jerking crowd. Now, this may come as a bit of shock to you, but there’s actually no such thing as a pure-breed Australian. Nope. There is such a thing as descendents of British convicts, and as far as we go – those direct descendants (ie. descendants of British convicts who have only procreated with descendants of British convicts) make up far less than half of our national population. That means that globally, ‘true-blue white Aussies’ make up less than 1% of the population. It’s inevitable that there will eventually be more Asian-looking people in our country over time. They’re already here, and they’re contributing to our society, while continuing to produce Asian-looking babies. Deal with it. It is NOT genocide, and here is why:

White people aren’t killed in Australia as part of a conspiracy or governmental/dictatorship movement. Nor are they prohibited from procreating – moreover they are encouraged. The number of white people in Australia, and globally, will increase. The percentage of white people (and Australians in particular) as a comparison with the global population will decrease. Let me know if you’d like a diagram.

“… the liberal twin of the liblab alliance introduced a scheme to raise fertility.”

Um, a scheme to raise fertility in Australia? Are you referring to the Baby Bonus here? The Baby Bonus that has largely been proven not to have increased fertility rates in Australia? The factors that increase fertility rates are described here. Not that it’s relevant in this discussion. And this article describes these factors in more detail. Go for your life, babycheeks.

“You could also argue that section b of article 2 was contributing to our genocide, as the whole frigging western world seems to be clinically depressed and mentally ill, I wonder why?”

Yeah okay. Maybe you are mentally ill and depressed, but let’s throw in some facts just to add to that chip on your shoulder:

* Australia ranks 11th out of 149 countries involved in World Database of Happiness

* Standard of living in Australia

“I am a stormfront member. I am there, like most people, because I do not support genocide. I do not want want people to go extinct.”

Victims of racism urged to litigate

The Australian

National Affairs

by: Patricia Karvelas
From: The Australian
December 06, 2011 12:00AM
Kate Lundy

Senator Kate Lundy

VICTIMS of racial injustice are being urged to pursue cases and use the “full force of the law” as part of the Gillard government’s renewed policy on multiculturalism.

Parliamentary Secretary for Immigration and Multicultural Affairs Kate Lundy told The Australian the government’s new policy would focus on educating people about existing laws and encourage their use, to send a message that racial injustice was not tolerated in Australia.

Senator Lundy said that, while she was open to creating even tougher laws to stop racism and encourage multiculturalism, she believed current provisions in federal law should be used more and the government should play a stronger role in encouraging action to stamp it out.

“It’s about calling it as a government and saying ‘yes, there is a problem and we need to address it using the full force of the law that we already have in place’,” she said.

Senator Lundy said she supported Race Discrimination Commissioner Helen Szoke, who gave qualified support to a federal multiculturalism act along the lines favoured by the Victorian Liberal government.

Dr Szoke called for a broadening of the Racial Discrimination Act to enhance multiculturalism, saying a specific act might be needed if there was found to be gaps in protections of ethnic minorities from racial vilification. She will use a review by federal Attorney-General Robert McClelland of anti-discrimination laws covering race, gender, age and sexuality to call for reforms to give ethnic minorities more rights to fight racism if a review lessens those rights.

“I think it’s a case about awareness,” Senator Lundy said. “I’m really keen to see how the human rights commission will take that campaign. We’ve provided resources.

“I think our laws are strong, I think there needs to be an awareness and education about those laws and people having a good understanding of their rights and being able to pursue complaints and challenge behaviour. That will be a terrific step for all of us.”

In the wake of the Muslim community arguing for the establishment of Koran courts and Islamic law, Senator Lundy said the multicultural policy would never allow groups to have a different set of rules.

“People come to Australia because they admire our values, so it’s not about changing Australian law; it’s about asking people to subscribe to those values.”

She said stamping out racism in the workplace was a “top priority”. “We need to remind everybody that is in a position of power and employs people that they have obligations under Australian law not to discriminate.

“We need to be educating and supporting employers to make good decisions that are not discriminatory … and supporting the people who are applying for the jobs so they know their rights and we have a good system of handling complaints.”

Senator Lundy ruled out a broader constitutional recognition of racial diversity.

“I think that our very character as a nation is one built on migration and there’s a lot inherent in who we already are,” she said. “I think it is a fact rather than some stated policy that we are multicultural, so that is not something I’m considering.

“We can’t tell people what they can and can’t do, there’s no magic clicking of fingers.”
