Dissatisfaction with immigration grows in Vic.

Swinburne University
People and Place Journal
Volume 16, Issue 3 (2008)
Katharine Betts
Immigration has increased considerably since the late 1990s and between 2004 and 2007 the proportion of voters who want the intake to be reduced rose from 34 per cent to 46 per cent. While support for a reduction was highest in New South Wales, this support was already high in 2004. In relative terms support for a reduction rose most strongly in Victoria. This may be because, over the four-year period, Melbourne absorbed a greater proportion of Australia’s population growth than any other region. Despite growing electoral disquiet, the new Labor Government is increasing the immigration program to record levels. (Abstract)
Swinburne Uni Research News
From a conventional economic perspective these years were rosy, so it is unusual to see support for immigration decline so steeply in such circumstances. According to Betts’ “one possibility is that the immediate negative consequences of rapid population growth became evident to more people: rising house prices and rents, pressure to increase residential densities in previously low-density suburbs, increased congestion on the roads, pressure on hospitals and health services and overcrowding on public transport.”

These changes were felt most in Victoria: “This may be because, over the four-year period, Melbourne absorbed a greater proportion of Australia’s population growth than any other region,” said Betts.

Despite this growing electoral disquiet, the new Labor Government is increasing the immigration program to record levels. The total planned permanent intake for 2008-2009 stands at 203,800.

According to Betts’ report, the demographic trajectory that the new Government has committed itself to has minimal electoral support. “Urban congestion and declining housing affordability suggest that the disjunction between this policy and popular feeling may not be easy to ignore over the long term."
Apart from congestion, other explanations probably don't pass the PC filter to get a mention by Betts. Like, as the amount and degree of diversity increases, so does the backlash. Isn't that what Professor Putnam found? It could just be Melbourne catching up to Sydney.

Melbourne's African intake has increased in recent years. Would that rate a mention by Betts? 40 percent of Australians believe that certain ethnic groups do not belong here (Middle Easterners and Africans rating high). Wouldn't it make sense that if you have more African immigrants then you might also have more of a backlash? You'd have to pay $16 to find out if Betts mentions this, but I'd say it's unlikely.

Nope, humans, according to much of academia, only concern themselves with economics and infrastructure. Racial solidarity, linguistic cohesion, crime, culture, and religion are all capable of "disjunction between this policy and popular feeling" but they don't pass the PC filter to rate a mention. Such is the socially vacuous state of our PC filtered universities.

EU moving into full scale anti-racist totalitarianism

December 08, 2008
Lawrence Auster
According to the French website Bivouac-Id ...
Racism, inciting to hatred, justification, negation or trivialization of genocidal crimes will soon be punishable by one to three-year prison terms throughout the European Union, the European Commission announced today Friday (November 28)...

"Racism and xenophobia do not have a place in Europe and should not exist anywhere in the world."
Since what the EU controllers call racism and xenophobia are normal human phenomena that exist wherever human beings exist, and since what the EU controllers really mean by racism and xenophobia is the racism and xenophobia of whites, and since what they ultimately mean by the racism and xenophobia of whites is any impulse by whites to resist their extinction as peoples and nations by the EU and its partner Islam, to declare that racism and xenophobia have no place in Europe and should not exist anywhere in the world, and that they will be accordingly stamped out by imprisoning people who exhibit these attitudes, is the language of totalitarianism and genocide, aimed at the silencing and extinction of white Europe. The phrase echoes Nazis saying that Jews have no place in Europe and should not exist anywhere in the world.

Prisoners convert to Islam in escape plot

Whilst searching on today's alleged drug ring run from Lithgow prison, I found this article from Jihad Watch ...
One of Australia's most dangerous criminals paid fellow inmates to convert to Islam as a prelude to planning an audacious escape from the country's toughest jail, it was alleged yesterday.

Convicted murderer Bassam Hamzy arranged for cash payments to be secretly made to prisoners prepared to worship Allah and help him plot an escape from the Super Max section of Goulburn jail in New South Wales...

In what prison authorities described as a "pay to pray" conspiracy, 12 of the 37 inmates at the Super Max facility became Muslim fundamentalists or converts...

Hamzy has been moved to a prison in Lithgow, west of Sydney.

Islamic college next to church a 'slap in the face'

Dec 4th, 2008
goldcoast.com.au
A GOLD Coast Christian centre is outraged at the prospect of an Islamic college being built next door to it at Carrara. Dream Centre minister Tony Doherty said ... an Islamic college next door to a Christian church was a 'slap in the face'... "Would you put the Labor and Liberal party offices right next door to one another?"
Sydney Morning Herald
But he denies a protest movement to have the college banned is based on
religious grounds ... "That's not good commonsense and town planning. Would you put the Titans (rugby league club) right next to the Broncos? ..."
Liberal v Labor. Titans v Broncos. Slap in the face. His message is: Christians and Muslims are inherently antagonistic and will naturally conflict. How so? He doesn't say. Apparently we should all know because it's "commonsense".

So for some vague, but commonsense, reason he favours segregation of inherently antagonistic Christian and Muslim groups. The proximity of Muslims and Christians results in an inevitable slap in the face. So Tony Doherty is proposing a "no slapping" regulation in the town planning laws.

What a ringing endorsement for diversity, free speech, and dialogue (and pathetically impotent defence of realm) that a Christian minister, when confronted with diversity head on, can only utter the unreasoned sentiment: get out of my face.

Who is fit to tour Australia?

22 Nov 08
News Weekly
Communist China's chief political enforcer, who also stands accused of being its pre-eminent exterminator, has been touring Australia.

The little-known Zhou Yongkang has taken the unusual but ominous step of visiting Australia unannounced on what was in all likelihood a fact-finding trip directly linked to his repressive policing duties.

The highly unusual visit sparked protests and questions about why someone with such a murderous record was permitted to enter Australia.
The West Australian
Victorian Opposition Leader Ted Baillieu has called for the federal government to reject the visa application of British white supremacist leader Nick Griffin ...

Mr Baillieu said he had written to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Immigration Minister Chris Evans calling on them to reject any application by Mr Griffin to come to Australia.

Mr Griffin openly seeks to undermine cultural, religious and racial harmony,” Mr Baillieu said.
The Rudd Government must refuse entry to convicted racist
The Hon Dr Sharman Stone MP
Shadow Minister for Immigration and Citizenship
The Federal Opposition is urgently calling on the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Chris Evans, to refuse any further visa application from British national, Nick Griffin.

Mr Griffin is well known for his deeply racist views and public statements that amount to religious and racial vilification.

He was convicted of inciting racial hatred in Britain in 1998, and soon after was refused entry into Australia by the then Coalition Government.

“It seems however, that the Rudd Government has refused Mr Griffin’s electronic visa application, but the Immigration Department has now invited him to submit a formal application in writing.

Dr Sharman Stone, Shadow Minister for Immigration and Citizenship has stated that: “Given his past criminal conviction, and the fact that Mr Griffin has been sponsored by the Australian Protectionist Party to visit Australia on a lecture tour promoting his racist views, he should quite simply and categorically be denied entry into the country.”

Mr Griffin’s views are abhorrent and totally unacceptable in a tolerant and peace loving society like ours. “ Dr Stone said.

“Minister Evans must act swiftly and decisively, making it clear that no Australian government will ever welcome or tolerate people like Mr Griffin.”

“Mr Griffin is not wanted in Australia and I call on Minister Evans to instruct his department that he will not approve of any visa application from him, no matter what its format, or form,” Dr Stone said.
Have Baillieu and Stone condemned China's "Heinrich Himmler" who, rather than seeking to "undermine ... harmony", allegedly already has a body count on his resume? Not likely.

So why not? How does the high moral ground of tolerance morph into kissing the posterior of murderers? Economic interests? Blind spot for third worlders who just need some time to see the light? Who knows.

But perhaps the message we get from this inconsistency is that, behind the gleaming smiles of the new moral order of tolerance, lurks a morality of convenience that will run away when put to the test. A moral order lacking in a definable identity and the social cohesion necessary to defend "a tolerant and peace loving society like ours". A moral order still vacuously defined only in terms of what it isn't (Nazi), so that it is unable to defend itself.

Lawrence Auster
... there's yet a further parallel between Germany and America in the thinking of liberals and leftists that makes them want to destroy both of those countries. As Otto Frank put it at the end of the World War II (in which his entire family had been murdered), what was wrong with Nazism was its "intolerance." But, as I've written previously, if mere "intolerance," rather than dehumanizing murderous brutality, is what defines the ultimate evil at the core of Nazism, then "intolerance" is a terrible threat to humanity and must be eliminated everywhere. Intolerance, unlike Nazism, exists in all countries. Wherever there is a distinct national identity, for example, there is implicitly a lack of tolerance for other national identities in the same territory. Therefore America, which has a strong national identity, is as threatening to the human good as German national identity, and therefore the American nation has to be eliminated along with the German one.

Carrara protests Islamic school

December 2, 2008

ANGRY Gold Coast residents say a planned Islamic school at Carrara could turn the area into a ghetto capable of breeding terrorists.

Nearly 200 residents armed with Australian flags and placards marched on council chambers yesterday to voice their fears about The Australian International Islamic College...

From 4pm the residents gathered in the Evandale parklands where a PA system blasted Men At Work's Land Down Under and Icehouse's Great Southern Land
The Australian
A rally last week attracted about 400 people, while people turned out yesterday carrying placards bearing slogans such as "no Muslim school, hell no" and "integration, not segregation"...

"Since we have started protesting against this our churches have been covered in hate-filled graffiti."
Nov 24th, 2008
goldcoast.com.au
Mayor Ron Clarke said that providing the school met planning requirements there should be no reason why it should not go ahead...

"I've been to the Muslim temples and they practise religion the same as anybody else does.
Nov 22nd, 2008
goldcoast.com.au
Residents are also worried property values in the neighbourhood could decrease if a 'non-integrative' Muslim community is allowed to grow...

"If you look at the other areas in the world where this has happened, it starts with the school then comes the mosque and then they start going in a buying all the houses and failing businesses and then you find it becomes a Muslim neighbourhood and I, along with a lot of the other residents in this area don't want to live in a community like that.
No land rights. No compensation for devalued homes. Why won't the problems of overseas Muslims repeat themselves here? Why is Australia so different? Does Australia have a special power? Apparently so, because Ron Clarke has been to the Muslim temples and seen they are "the same as anybody else". We'll hold you to those words Ron Clarke.

We've already had local Muslims students urinating on Bibles and being taught that non-Muslims are 'evil ... sewers', a Perth Islamic school on fraud charges, Granville Middle-Eastern students glorifying gang rapists, Muslim students stabbing pictures of Christ, and schools teaching positive descriptions of terrorist groups. But we trust your judgement Ron, you've seen it first hand, after all.

Video: the fatal flaw of immigration policy

December 02, 2008
Daily Telegraph

That ought to be the title of this news article. Instead, we get: The fatal flaw of DIY driving lessons. Video here and longer one here.
PEOPLE teaching friends or their children to drive may one day need a special permit if recommendations by a crash investigator are adopted.

Terrifying footage of a car driven by a learner driver crashing into pedestrians on a suburban street was yesterday played to an inquest into the death of young fashion student Emma Hansen.

The shocking CCTV images showed a red Toyota driven by Sudanese refugee Rose Deng ploughing into Ms Hansen's friend Portia Parkhill.
Did we have a general problem with learner drivers before this incident? Not to my knowledge. So shouldn't the correct response be to question either (a) African/refugee intake, or (b) African/refugee suitability to hold a drivers licence, or (c) special conditions for training African/refugee drivers? No, the answer is (d) none of the above - political correctness prevents any action targeting particular groups of people, regardless of any real data suggesting a particular problem. You might say our immigration and road safety policies (and this whole liberal trip) are driving blind.

The rest of the article is the same old: housing shortage, refugees can't get jobs, they have to retrain and can't afford it. And, despite all that, y'all can still afford to have 8 kids each?

Video: Alan Jones on Daniel Awak killing

Alan Jones
We are not a multicultural society and never will be.

We're a multiracial society.

We don't much care where people come from, but they need to be told we are monocultural.

Come to Australia and you live under the Australian umbrella.

And if those conditions are spelled out before people arrive, which of course they're not, then we have a reason to get rid of them when they don't behave.
Well, duh, if you get enough immigrants then you get defacto multiculturalism anyway. France doesn't have multiculturalism, officially anyway, yet they're still burning. Tell him he's dreamin.

Alan Jones' solution only makes the problem worse in the long run, because it promotes unlimited immigration. I do much care where people come from, because it does much effect quality of life.

Bolt v. Nixon: Sudanese crime 4 times average

November 21, 2008
Herald Sun
What Nixon fails to add is that with just 6200 Sudanese in Victoria, this means about one in 19 Sudanese each year gets picked up for alleged crimes - more than four times the one-in-83 rate for all Victorians.

Bottom line: Nixon last year claimed Sudanese were "underrepresented" in crime figures, but her own statistics show they are overrepresented by a factor of four.

Good turns to bad at Schoolies

November 25th, 2008
goldcoast.com.au
A day after police praised schoolies' calm behaviour, fighting broke out on the streets of Surfers and within the fenced-off Schoolies Hub as revellers let loose for the first time...

Supt Keogh denied there were any gang or race-affiliated scuffles despite police arresting several men of African descent.

"Last year we had problems with Sudanese versus Maori fights but we have been monitoring CCTV and haven't seen anything that is thought to be gang-affiliated or with racial overtones," he said.

Police still pressing for Flemington riot charges

November 21, 2008
Herald Sun
Sen-Sgt Phil Pearson, a police union executive, is pushing for fresh charges over the violence in which his colleague and friend, Sen-Sgt Mario Benedetti, was injured.

"This is a perversion of the course of justice," he said.

"This happened because they were Africans and to maintain community harmony, but they have done the wrong thing.

"If they were white Australian males it would have proceeded to court."

Plea to mentor African refugees

November 24, 2008
The Age
PROMINENT Australians should mentor African refugees and provide references for jobs and housing to stop them becoming increasingly marginalised, says Victoria's Australian of the Year candidate, Berhan Ahmed ...

Under his mentorship plan, retired professionals would educate African refugees about local laws and social mores and provide character references for jobs and rental accommodation. "If these people don't have someone to connect them they will always remain on the fringe," he said ...

... "The crisis is not something of Africans' making, it's a system failing," he said.
There we go again: diversity is rejected by the people, they don't want a bar of it. And so the call goes out for some intervention. It's the same story with Aboriginals. Average Joe turns away and the government has to send in the army to fix it. Time after time, the public votes with it's feet. And still the governments don't listen. They keep bringing in the immigrants. And white folk keep turning away. The "system" cannot make up for it (unless it goes into fascistic overdrive). Tell him he's dreamin.

2007: Hills district crime blamed on mortgage stress

4/12/2007

Whilst googling about the Richard Carruthers death (for which Marcel Halabi has been arrested) I noticed this piece of fantasy journalism from Hills News.
Sydney's Bible belt is known for its McMansions, aspirational voters and enthusiastic church-goers. But the conservative, affluent Hills district is also in the grip of a crime wave - and mortgage stress may be behind it ...

There have been five murders in the past two years; there were none in the five years before that. They include the stabbing murder of Richard Carruthers, the 36-year-old redesigner of the Olympic cauldron, in his Castle Hill home.

Three of the murders remain unsolved.
We know that certain ethnicities are over-represented in crime, and the article admits that the demographics of the area have changed. But does this fact get a mention by the genius journalist? Nope. It's aaaaall mortgage stress.

Was the murder of Richard Carruthers a group plot?

November 05, 2008
Daily Telegraph
THE man accused of murdering an acclaimed Sydney landscape designer in a vicious home invasion may not have acted alone, police said yesterday.

Marcel Halabi, 25, faced court yesterday charged with stabbing Richard Carruthers, 37, in the early hours of June 24 last year at his Castle Hill home...

Mrs Halabi, who said she was five months pregnant, declined to comment on her husband's arrest, threatening legal action when reporters approached.

NSW Police says one male is of Mediterranean / Middle Eastern appearance.

Killer cabbie back on the road

November 26, 2008
The Australian
The tribunal heard XFJ, an African refugee, repeatedly knifed his new wife in the head and stomach in a frenzied attack in 1990. Deeply depressed, he tried to hang himself - but failed when a tree branch broke.

A jury acquitted him of murder on the ground of insanity. He was detained in a psychiatric institution until his release under supervision about 10 years ago...
This video says he is from Ethiopia.

Herald Sun editorial
There was also concern that it would not be fair to ban the former psychiatric patient because of "wild prejudice".

Just as it would not be right to ban "a gay taxi driver" because some people might feel "uncomfortable with homosexuals". The same would apply to banning an "AIDS sufferer in remission and on medication" because some people might feel uncomfortable in a taxi being driven by such a person.

But do any of these bizarre comparisons override a concern about members of the public being driven by someone who killed his wife and was judged insane, in spite of reassurances about his recovery?

Victorian imams condone rape, violence - report

November 21, 2008
The Australian
SOME Muslim imams condone rape and domestic violence within marriage, exploitation of women, welfare fraud and polygamy, a report ... by the Islamic Welfare Council of Victoria ...

... interviews with the Victorian Board of Imams ... the 24-man board ignored or did not directly answer many of the questions put to it ...

Former husbands entered the houses of their separated but not religiously divorced ex-wives, demanding sex and, in some cases, committing rape ...

... police in Shepparton say many de facto relationships were really polygamous marriages ...

Video, Fehmi: polygamy in Australia? Why not?

November 21, 2008
ABC News video here.
Australia's highest Muslim authority has defended the practice of polygamy in the Islamic community in response to a report which found some religious leaders were pressuring women to drop complaints of domestic violence.
Quote of Sheikh Fehmi Naji El-Imam (Mufti of Australia) from video:
ABC: Sheik Fehmi insists it's uncommon and difficult, but ...

Fehmi: In some circumstances that you may be able to have another wife ...

ABC: Those circumstances, he says, include when a spouse is incapacitated and ...

Fehmi: ... unable to carry out her duties towards her husband.

ABC: ... Sheik Fehmi believes some compromise is feasible.

Fehmi: If it is possible that can we look at in Australia as it is the normal way? An acceptable way? Why not?
Sure, why not. I'm sure you won't ask for any more concessions. It's all moot anyway, demography is destiny. You can't stop it. A Muslim population is uncontrollable. Separation is the only answer.

Australia funding hate education of Palestinians

November 26, 2008
Janet Albrechtsen
The irony is that this hate education is funded by the West, by countries that pour money into the PA who use it to glorify terrorism and to twist young minds against Israel, and peace. Countries such as Australia. Last year in Ramallah, headquarters of Fatah, Foreign Minister Stephen Smith lauded one of the first acts of the new Labor Government as being a pledge of $45million to the Palestinian people and $7.5m going directly to the PA. Does the minister know how the PA is using Western money?

Hillary Clinton knows about the direct flow of Western money into Fatah’s sewer of hate education. Last year she launched PMW’s latest report and pointed out the consequences of the toxic indoctrination of children: “We cannot build a peaceful, stable, safe future on such a hate-filled violent and radical foundation.”

Nixon: society has reached a "tipping point"

Nov 24, 2008
Christine Nixon (via Andrew Bolt)
This is hard to explain in isolation. It has been suggested that society has reached a "tipping point" where the social and cultural developments have come together to create conditions conducive to violence.

The storm that has been gathering for years is upon us ...

The most worrying trend is the steady decline of respect and empathy ...

A push or a shove that once would come to nothing had begun to spark levels of violence police had rarely seen before ...

But it is not something police can solve on their own.
The Social Capital Crisis marches on.

Diversity and anarchy: resulting from our failure to maintain unity. Fostering unity is still our biggest problem. Unity for white folk, that is. If we can't unify ourselves and restore a positive white culture then we certainly can't help solve anybody else's problems.

71-year-old struck during home invasion, Georges Hall

20 Nov 2008
NSW Police
About 11.30pm, the 40-year-old man was inside his Birdwood Road home when he heard a knock at the front door.

He opened the door and was confronted by three unknown men, who forced their way inside the residence and assaulted him, punching and kicking him to the head and body.

During the incident, the man’s 71-year-old mother came to his assistance but was also struck in the face by one of the intruders.
Three men of no particular appearance. It's not in your interest to know. Move along. Georges Hall is near Bankstown, Sydney.

BNP membership leaked: spot the fascists

November 20, 2008

In a piece titled Heat rises over UK's web map of fascists SMH tech journalist Asher Moses shows his colours ...
Right-wing extremists across Britain are bracing for violent repercussions after the British National Party's entire membership list was leaked on the internet.
Just pause and re-read that. Who are the ones threatening violent repercussions? Are they the ones Moses calls extremists or fascists? Does Moses condemn the violent repercussions? Nope, whilst full of judgement against BNP members, his rarefied morality does not condemn the left-liberal extremists who, unlike the BNP, are threatening violence. Silence speaks.
Ironically, the BNP is relying on Britain's Human Rights Act, which it opposes, to protect the privacy of its members.
Whatever the BNP stands for (I don't know much) it is a lawful democratic party. I suspect that even if it opposes the Human Rights Act it would be in favour of privacy laws. Ironically, Moses snickers at the privacy rights of members of a lawful party, as if they don't deserve them.

A law has been broken, but does that worry Moses? Nope, his morality does not extend to condemn the unlawful act - not with one word - but he does find the time to see the "humorous side" in it.

All he's concerned with is smearing the reputation of a lawful political party, and admiring the tech-savvy lawlessness that has British citizens fearing for their lives. What would you call someone who turns a blind eye to the law in pursuit of political gain? Silence speaks.

The Labour Party shows the same spirit...
Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, showed little sympathy over the leak. She told Sky News: "It probably says something about the BNP that people don't want to have it known that they are a member." ...

Smith's Labour party is seeking to pass a bill that would make it legal for trade unions to bar members of the BNP, and she has the chutzpah to insinuate that people don't want their BNP membership known because it is something shameful, conveniently "forgetting" the fact that the group is being legislated against, members are actively discriminated against in the workplace, as well as being subject to threats from leftist thugs.
Lawrence Auster...
That's shows the spirit of the true totalitarian. The true totalitarian doesn't just oppress you and take away your freedom, like a garden variety dictator. The true totalitarian says that your fear that he will oppress you and take away your freedom proves that you have a guilty conscience.
Lawrence Auster on the BNP ...
I pay attention to them because (1) they are virtually the only organized entity in Britain that seeks to defend Britain from national suicide, (2) they have done something that no anti-Semitic organization has ever done before, intelligently argue against anti-Semitism and officially reject it within the party, and (3) articles in BNP publications such as the one I recently discussed about Israel point toward a key component in the possible salvation of the West, namely the possibility of race-conscious white Westerners defending Jews and Israel, and of Jews realizing they are on the same side as white Westerners.

All these things make BNP noteworthy, interesting, and even promising. Is there anything in the Labor party or the Conservative party that make them noteworthy and interesting, other than their embrace of British national suicide?

... Every single article has expressed caveats and cautions. I have not given it a clean bill of health. I have not endorsed it. My discussions have been cautious and have always laid out the reasons why I thought this was worth discussing, therefore I don't think thoughtful VFR readers would be turned off by my mentioning it...

I like the whole thing. I'm still leery of the BNP as people, based on what I've heard about them, but how could I not wish a party well whose platform is right on so many points, in a different galaxy from the major parties? Even if the BNP candidates are unqualified for political office, wouldn't the success of a party with such a platform represent progress for those principles?
A BNP member comments ...
... The people on that list are political dissidents; which is a novel thought. I never thought when I was young that modern Britain could see such a thing...

No one seem in the slightest bit bothered about the fact that the police are openly perusing a list which is illegal and has a high-court injunction against it, so that they can sack the people on it, that people are now being sacked in "free" Britain for being members of a legal political party. There is not even the pretence that this isn't happening, it just doesn't matter. It seems that if you are BNP, anything goes--by being "racist" we put ourselves outside the protection of the law...

The Home Secretary mockingly commented that people in the BNP are obviously ashamed of their views to be reacting with such fear. Her comment, and the comment of others I have seen on news-sites, have revealed to us that which was partially concealed, that Britain today has become a nastier, and in a Stalinist way, a more threatening place than it felt yesterday. Such stories and the way they are spun and received give a glimpse to the attuned of the likely road ahead. The Home Secretary knows very well that the reason many members are scared to admit they are in the BNP is because of the very real possibility of harassment, persecution and loss of livelihood that she and her government inflicts on us through its intermediaries in the police and Marxist trade unions, amongst others.

And from the public's indifference, it would seem most people here couldn't care less. There are many groups that will protect the rights and liberties of non-Britons, but arguably even paedophiles have more groups willing to fight for their rights. We are quite alone. Not that I am complaining ... being "excluded" from such a society is like being accused of homophobia by the citizens of Sodom.
Even non-BNP members are outraged ...

African refugee jailed for child sex offences

June 13, 2007

34-year-old African refugee Djuma Omana of Morphett Vale (Adelaide), from Congo, was found guilty of raping one teenage girl, and assaulting another. The girls were known to Omana through their parents. He invited them over, gave then alcohol and cannabis, and had them sleep over because it was getting late. The assaults happened during the night.

Nixon fudged African crime figures

November 19, 2008
Andrew Bolt
But here’s the central point. Last year Nixon told us Sudanese refugees, if not all African refugees, were “under-represented in the crime statistics”. In fact, we now know they’re over-represented—by as much as eight times.

Andrews was right to worry and urge caution. Nixon was wrong to challenge his figures. And we, who relied on Nixon’s assurances, were grossly unfair to damn Andrews as a racist and a hatemonger for merely doing his duty. I’m sorry for my part in that.
Read it all. It's good, but unfortunately Bolt does not oppose African immigration per se, he only proposes a slowing down until we settle the African crime rate. But, as an experimentalist, he should have looked overseas and seen the high crime rates in the US, UK, France, etc, and opposed black immigration here until those overseas countries showed us that multiracial utopia is possible - and they haven't done that yet. So, as an immigration scientist, Andrew Bolt demonstrates a stubborn reckless streak by happily repeating those failed experiments here.

But, regardless of crime rates, there are other dimensions to oppose African immigration: aesthetics, the loss of social capital, the reluctance of employers to hire foreigners, informal segregation in suburbs and schools and universities, Islamification, national security, terrorism, etc. Does anybody bother to quantify those dimensions with statistics?

Note, Bolt has previously taken a somewhat stronger stance against African immigration:
We can ignore all this, as we usually, do and shout “racist” at those who point out that we have a problem.

But we need to rethink just how - or even whether - we resettle immigrants whose culture is so very, very different.
Today would have been a good time to echo that last line, don't you think?

The Racial Compact

(I think compact is synonymous with contract.)

Richard McCulloch
Racial Rights

The not-so-benign neglect of racial rights is a luxury humanity can ill afford if human racial diversity is to be valued and preserved. The recognition, affirmation and defense of racial rights -- particularly the primary racial rights to life and liberty, or independence -- is also a recognition, affirmation and defense of the value and importance of human life and human racial diversity. Human rights include racial rights, for races are the evolutionary branches or divisions of humanity. If the diverse races of humanity are to coexist and share the planet earth together they must first agree to recognize, affirm and defend the right of all races to exist . Humanity needs to adopt a concept of racial relations that is based on the principle of racial rights, permitting the different races to share the earth, their common home, together by assuring their secure possession of their own racially exclusive homelands or countries where they will enjoy the conditions of geographic separation and reproductive isolation required for their continued existence. The mutual agreement or understanding to adopt and practice a concept of racial relations based on the principles of racial rights and preservation, promoting both the coexistence and continued existence of the different races of humanity, is here referred to as the Racial Compact...

Separation: The Preservationist Imperative

A separation of the races is the only perfect preventive of amalgamation -- Abraham Lincoln, June 26, 1857

In 1988 I had the opportunity to meet William Gayley Simpson, author of Which Way Western Man . At that time he was in his nineties and in declining health. He compensated for his lack of conversational endurance by distilling the essence of his thought into one very terse and pointed message: "Separate or die." Those were his last words to me, and that is fitting, for that simple phrase tells us two vitally important things. First, that racial separation is necessary for the long-term preservation of the Northern European race, the founding and still the majority American racial type, which I refer to as the Nordish race. It is a simple matter of either-or -- either racial separation or racial death. Second, that the alternative to racial destruction, the solution to the Nordish racial crisis, is racial separation. Not immigration restrictions, segregation, white supremacism or other half-measures, nor anything that need harm other races or violate their legitimate rights and interests. [Note 1] None of these things can save us. Only separation can. Separation is the preservationist imperative.

The reason separation is necessary for racial preservation is simple -- the evolution and continued existence of different races is made possible by reproductive isolation. When different populations are reproductively isolated they cannot interbreed or intermix, and consequently evolve in different directions, developing into different races with their own unique and distinct ensemble of genetic traits. Reproductive isolation requires an absence of physical contact. As a practical matter, this requires geographic separation.
From Wikipedia
The premise for Richard McCulloch's ideology is that two races inhabiting the same territory will eventually interbreed until either one of the races is assimilated into the other or they have integrated into one race thus either way causing a tragic loss in human diversity. He argues that racial mixing is ruinous to the evolution of races, because it destroys each races distinct racial character. This view comes from zoologists and Carleton S. Coon. It is on these grounds that McCulloch calls for the disintegration of the U.S. into independent, one-racial states in order to preserve racial diversity. He believes that the UN should issue a declaration in favor of the right for a racial group to secede from others, because he argues that the right to racial preservation is in fact a fundamental human right. He concludes the continued separation of races will eventually lead to speciation of the races, preventing them from mixing.
It makes sense to me.

Liberalism: the end-game

November 13, 2008

Lawrence Auster
Once people say that the election of a nonwhite as the President of the United States is a good thing in and of itself, they have embraced a principle that says that we must deliberately promote nonwhiteness. And this violates the fundamental principle of the civil rights liberalism on which modern America is supposedly founded, that race does not matter. Thus right-liberalism (which says that only the individual and his rights matter, not race) has transformed itself into left-liberalism (which embraces nonwhiteness for its own sake).

Every so-called conservative who has praised the election of Obama because of Obama's race is now a left-liberal. Of course, Bush himself has been a left-liberal all along, even before he became president, as he showed in 2000 when he lauded the transformation of America into a Spanish-speaking, Hispanic culture, adding that Republicans who opposed that prospect were motivated by resentment and had to shut up.

In the race-conscious ecstasy with which Obama's election has been universally greeted, the real meaning and destiny of modern liberalism has been revealed. Liberalism is not a journey from a historically white society to a society in which race neutrality is the guiding principle. It is a journey from a historically white society to a society in which the advance of nonwhites as nonwhites--along with its corollary, the disempowerment and denigration of whites as whites--is the guiding principle. And if those are the rules of the game, why should any self-respecting, non-suicidal white person play?

USA: do whites now feel 'vested in the future'?

November 13, 2008

President Bush said to CNN:
The election of Barack Obama is an historic moment for our country. There are a lot of people in America who did not believe they would ever see this day.

It is good for our country that people have hope in the system and feel vested in the future and President-elect Obama has a great opportunity.
So if black folks can only feel a vested interest if "my president is black" then doesn't that imply a lot of white folk will now feel alienated? How is that good for your country?

Or is alienation only peculiar to blacks and not whites?
Cross burnings. Schoolchildren chanting "Assassinate Obama." Black figures hung from nooses. Racial epithets scrawled on homes and cars.

Incidents around the country referring to President-elect Barack Obama are dampening the postelection glow of racial progress and harmony, highlighting the stubborn racism that remains in America...

Potok, who is white, said he believes there is "a large subset of white people in this country who feel that they are losing everything they know, that the country their forefathers built has somehow been stolen from them."
No matter who is elected there will always be a large subset of alienated people for the same reason that the USA and UK remain largely segregated: because people prefer their own kind. A large subset of people will only feel vested in the future when they have a leader of their own kind. And the only way to solve that problem is the end of diversity and a return to racial homogeny. And that sure sounds better than the 'revolving door of the alienated' to me.

Obama said prior to the election ...
It was Michelle, Axelrod remembers, who stopped the show. "You need to ask yourself, Why do you want to do this?" she said directly. "What are [you] hoping to uniquely accomplish, Barack?"

Obama sat quietly for a moment, and everyone waited. "This I know: When I raise my hand and take that oath of office, I think the world will look at us differently," he said. "And millions of kids across this country will look at themselves differently."
Yep, and a large subset of white kids will now look at things differently too ...

Netherlands: where does it stop?

November 16, 2008
On Wednesday evening, a group of Moroccan youths completely ruined an already heavily guarded lantern parade in the Transvaal neighbourhood of The Hague. Little children were bombarded with eggs when they followed a marching band with their multi-coloured lanterns. A woman, watching the parade with her dog, was harassed while the youths tried to kick her dog. Police officers who tried to intervene were met with a barrage of projectiles. Only one of the youths (15 years old) could be apprehended after a wild chase.

The organizing committee Haagse Hopjes [a traditional local sweet — translator] is more than fed up with the continuing harassment and hopes that at last something will be done against it...

According to eyewitnesses, the group of at least twenty Moroccan youths almost immediately started their intimidation as the children gathered for their procession. They tried to storm the small community centre where the little ones were getting a hot cup of cocoa. Van de Boomen: ‘It already is a bloody shame that we are forced to ask dozens of policemen, guards and others to assist at a lantern parade. They were barely able to restrain most of those boys. But then outside they went crazy anyway.’ ...

This obviously is just one little brick in a structure of so many “incidents” that attests to the colourful contribution of Muslim youths, mainly of Moroccan origin, to Dutch society and its remaining traditions. Little and insignificant as this report may be, in many ways it already points towards the most likely scenario for the inevitable clash in the future, which will be a folk rebellion against Islam and everything associated with it ...
And the story sparked some 1000 "angry and furious" reader comments.

'TV soaps have White Australia policy'

November 15, 2008
Courier Mail
University of Queensland Aboriginal studies lecturer Sam Watson said the dramas were operating an "exclusive white family club" that didn't reflect Australia's true demographic...

Aboriginal MP Marion Scrymgour, who is Arts Minister for the Northern Territory, said people in indigenous communities needed greater representation on television...
At the same time as these pundits are happy to see white TV turn brown, they no doubt would praise the new national Indigenous television network ("for and by indigenous people") as a good thing.

So, if it's good for Aboriginals to have their own TV, wouldn't that make it bad for whites to see their TV turn brown?

If it's equality you seek, then you can't build up your own homogeneous TV station without respecting whites' right to the same.

If it's equality you seek, then if whites can't maintain their dominance over national TV then you would at least grant them the right to their own white TV channel.

But does that enter the brains of these two intellectual giants? I doubt it.

These type of responses raise the questions of: whether these folks do have equality on their minds; and, if Australia has an Obama moment and elects a non-white leader, would they then give a hoot about white rights? Or would they want whites to feel what it's like to be a persecuted minority? "Kick em when they're up. Kick em when they're down"?

The "true demographic" that Watson talks about is one where white Australians live, work, school and study with informal segregation. As one young couple said about leaving an immigrant area: "We didn't want to bring up a family in that sort of area".

I'd say that makes TV's "exclusive white family club" an accurate representation of white life in Australia. Diverse TV programs are, in the main, an unrepresentative fantasy world. So, by all means, create a fantasy channel for the part of Australia that embraces diversity. But give us our white TV that represents real life for most white Australians.

'Migrants from Africa will... settle... as previous waves'

March 09, 2008
Herald Sun
Federal Immigration and Citizenship minister Senator Chris Evans said specific immigrant groups would not face caps or discrimination.

"All immigrants face challenges when settling in a new country, especially refugees because of the trauma they have been through," he said.

"Migrants from Africa will successfully settle in Australia just as previous waves of immigrants from different backgrounds have done."
That statement may come back to haunt him. How can he say this given the crime rates of Africans in Europe and the USA? Buggered if I know. Because he doesn't believe in facts, he believes in hope. Tell him he's dreamin.

Fears our crime being imported

March 09, 2008
Herald Sun
... those born in Somalia, Lebanon and New Zealand had the highest crime-per-population rates in Victoria... followed by Turkish, Vietnamese and then Australian-born criminals...

The Crimes Victims Support Association has called for migrant groups committing less crime to be favoured over "high crime" nationalities.

Spokesman Noel McNamara said migrants should be deported on their first offence and there should be a cooling-off period for citizenship.

"We should be much stricter on who we bring in," Mr McNamara said.
"A man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument".

Sudanese crime rate double the general SA rate

November 14, 2008
Adelaide Now
Deputy Police Commissioner Gary Burns yesterday said police were concerned by rising levels of violence in the Sudanese community. In the past 16 months, Sudanese people had been involved in 450 offences, resulting in 258 arrests. "This is double the level of offending for the population of the state," he said.

"They come from a culture which has had serious warfare, some have been child soldiers, and they don't have the conflict-resolution skills that others who have grown up in Australia have, and as a result we have seen an increase in crime."
Andrew Bolt
What? One on 16 Sudanese immigrants in Adelaide - man, woman and child - commit, on average, an offence every three months?

Was it smart to import so many people who clearly have trouble fitting in? Was it fair on those who are the victims of their crimes?
No, and there should be a senate enquiry to table all the victims of immigration, and to justify how diverse immigration can continue given the high crime rates of certain ethnicities.
