Racist Riots - Ozzie style
Race riots that were sparked off in Cronulla Beach, Sydney on Sunday erupted again overnight and continue to shame Australia with random displays of phoney patriotism and boneheaded jingoism. Carrying on from events on Sunday, pissed-up white youths continued to attack "Middle Eastern looking" people. Most comments on the blogosphere have been deeply remorseful about the actions of the rioters. But there are many Australian bloggers whose opinions resonate with this type of thing:
Muslims have been assaulting Australian men and women for the past decade, then it could be argued that it is the Lebanese Muslims who have been engaged for a sustained period in violent acts of racism inspired and condoned by their belief ideology. In fact, I would argue that what has been going on is an attempt to reduce Aussies to dhimmis via physical acts of violence that create fear and leave a lasting impression. Confronted with such sustained acts ofwarfare, Aussies have no choice but to fight back.Another bugbear is Multiculturalism - read black immigration. Dr Mark Lopez, author of The Origins of Multiculturalism in Australian Politics, said locals in the Sutherland Shire, in Sydney's south, had taken "a lot of shit" from Muslim youths." (!)
Confirming Rule Number One from the Racists RuleBook: Always use the protection Multiculturalism affords you when you want to vent deeply felt racist opinions.
So lets get this right. When black French people riot, the problem is laid on the doorstep of poor education and the 'isolationist cultural values of immigrant communities'. When white Australians riot, the fault lies with Multiculturalism and un-Australian values brought in by isolationist [Christian/Musim] Arab immigrants. Why am I not surprised?
Of course, John Howard PM piped up with the odd condemnation, but we know his heart isn't really in it. A beach party pogrom against Arabs/Easterners that is in tune with his own visceral personal views is only going to hurt him politically because it is internationally emabbrassing.
This is a legend seen emblazoned on a white riot t-shirt wearer:
We grew here
You flew here
