Albrechtsen goes Hard on Multiculturalism

Janet Albrechtsen may claim to be a conservative, but her latest column shows she’s anything but. How so?

Back in the early 1990’s, a conservative Macquarie University law professor told me of his dismay at the left-wing method of “critical legal studies”. What’s the point of criticising the legal status quo of law before understanding it?

Real conservatives try to understand the status quo. Where the status quo seems to work (even if imperfectly, which is always the case), they don’t seek radical change.

Albrechtsen doesn’t appear to have understood the reality of Australia’s multicultural status quo. She claims our current policy is "hard multiculturalism" – where people are separated according to culture and where minorities cannot be criticised.

Albrechtsen’s idea of criticising minorities was seen in her 1 November column where she joined Peter Costello in claiming all 360,000 Muslims were responsible for the speech given by Sheik Hilaly to 500 people inside a mosque with a capacity of 5,000 people.

"Criticism from some Muslims came only after The Australian reported the speech". True, Janet, but how else are Aussie Mossies meant to learn of the speech? Do we subscribe to the al-Qaida Islamic extremism podcast? And with hardly 20% of Muslims native Arabic-speakers, how are English-speakers like me to know each time a thick-Sheik blames women’s dress for rape?

What is her evidence that “the hard version endures”? Albrechtsen points to a Victorian ethnic lobby’s response to a discussion paper, and to Fraser’s claim that a Muslim election is coming up.

Perhaps Albrechtsen’s problem with multiculturalism is its allegedly removing her freedom to question the bona fides of 360,000 Aussies from over 60 different nationalities who tick “Muslim” on their census forms.

Albrechtsen ignores successive reports on Australian multiculturalism, all of which point to the need for a commitment to shared values and shared institutions.

I can’t see any evidence of hard multiculturalism in Australia (apart from ravings of Cronulla rioters and assorted clerics). Instead, I see people comfortably living side-by-side. There is a place in the sun for governments who legislate and enforce culture. But it’s not called Australia. It’s called North Korea.

The multi-culti industry and the multi-mufti have both shown themselves to be offensive, and are being rightfully given the boot.

The influence on white Australians by that greasy little corrupt bastard Al Grasby, the biggest ALP crook of all time, must come to a long overdue end.

..and yet people called "Anonymous" are more offensive than all other people. By the Anon-Standard, all "Anonymous" people should be deported. Off you go.

We do not want muslim scum in this country. Our country was founded by white men to create a new British race. Why would we want the pollution of muslim scum? Why would we want Muslims who have never made any positive contribution and are incapable of ever making one given their average low IQ and total lack of high intelligence individuals? God decided that Muslim countries would be shitholes. We do not want Australia becoming a muslim shithole. Please leave. You have been politely asked to leave you filthy muslim vermin.

THE STRANGER within my gate,
He may be true or kind,
But he does not talk my talk—
I cannot feel his mind.
I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
But not the soul behind.
The men of my own stock
They may do ill or well,
But they tell the lies I am wonted to,
They are used to the lies I tell.
And we do not need interpreters
When we go to buy and sell.

The Stranger within my gates,
He may be evil or good,
But I cannot tell what powers control—
What reasons sway his mood;
Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
Shall repossess his blood.

The men of my own stock,
Bitter bad they may be,
But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
And see the things I see;
And whatever I think of them and their likes
They think of the likes of me.

This was my father's belief
And this is also mine:
Let the corn be all one sheaf—
And the grapes be all one vine,
Ere our children's teeth are set on edge
By bitter bread and wine.

-Rudyard Kipling

I dare any muslim to name two muslims who have served in Australia's armed forces defending this country in any war. I dare any muslim to name another muslim who has ever been decorated for bravery. The ANZACS did not kill Turks so that Muslims could live here. Australian's did not fight and die in World War 1 or World War 2 or Korea or Malaya or Vietnam so that muslims could live here. I dare you to name a single veteran digger who wants you to stay in this country.

One of the great tragedies is that white children are forced to go to school with muslims and as such then pick up some of the foul-mouthed illiterate crudities displayed by the likes of law student. Exposing white children to muslims hinders the IQ development of white children when they are at an impressionable age. Far better that all muslims be kept in child-minding centres where they can do the least damage. White children should be brought up to be young ladies and gentlemen and not have their development hindered by lower IQ muslims.

Some people might think law student should clean his mouth out with soap and water. I think law student should be made into soap. Other foul-mouthed muslims can be made to clean their mouths with law student soap.

Multiculturalism has been successfully demonised by the far-right in the last decade or so, as a natural extention of the whining about "minorities" which used to go on and on, particularly in the USA.

Albrechtsen continues to churn out the same old stuff but the truth is her rhetoric is dated. Australia's immigration rate has never been higher, and even the Rightist Milton Friedman attributed the USA's economic success to her liberal immigration policies. Australia would be up the proverbial without immigrants, regardless of their origin. We should welcome them, and largely we do.
The planet is gradually becoming multicultural in part due to the dramatic forces of globalisation.

Too late now buddy. No point crying over spilt milk. No point closing the gate after the horse has bolted. The only option that's really available to you is to learn to live with the Muslims. (Actually, it probably isn't really a problem for you since you probably don't have anything to do with Muslims anyway.)

Australian born kids of Asian origin have a much higher rate of entering tertiary instituions than Australian born kids of White European origin.

Where is the gratitude? Where is the thank-you. When has a muslim ever said: "I will live by the rules that Australia has set. I am grateful and I am completely undeserving. I have received a welcome which I cannot repay but I should at least be respectful of Australians". Not one grateful muslim.

The 14 Words say it all: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."
And yes non-white children are taking uni places from white children even though the whites established and continue to pay the costs of the universities.

All the injustices will be repaid when the muslims are on their knees begging for mercy. Muslims will receive free brain surgery made with a 5cent piece of lead. Perhaps then the muslims will say "Thank-you"

Anyone who loves Australia and Western Civilization will applaud the extermination of the muslims for being impolite and ungrateful.
We never needed 300,000 muslims to run a few kebab shops. Was there any other reason to let them in?

Anonymous said...

I might have a kebab for lunch, but never from a Muslim, and never from a Lebanese.

These parasitic creatures must be stopped before they rspe our women and children, and make us all their slaves, as demanded in their Koran.

How does one "rspe"? Is that what your parish priest did to you when you were young? I guess that's what happens when you worship a God who has to commit suicide just to forgive sins.

We have a water crisis. We also have a muslim crisis.

Muslims are so pathetic. They have won just a single Nobel Prize for Chemistry. One for Physics - he was jailed by his own government. They have NEVER won a Nobel Prize for either Physiology and Medicine nor Economics. If only they gave Nobel Prizes for camel-stealing and rape 'Leb-style'. So the likelihood of any muslim ever making a technological contribution to the future of Australia is almost zero.

Jews have won 181 Nobel Prizes. So why is that we imported people even more objectionable than jews and who are by any standard are stupid ragheads by comparison with jews?

The muslims have got to be thrown out of Australia because it is a waste of water to let them drink it let alone all the water needed to grow food and cotton and wool to feed and clothe them. By throwing the muslims out of Australia we are also helping solve the water crisis.

Muslims are using oxygen and turning it into carbon dioxide. Instead of shoving them in the ovens we could use muslims as landfill and in this way not contribute to global warming. By turning them into compost we can help grow trees and produce more oxygen.

I think we can do without kebabs if it means doing our bit to save the planet from both muslims and global warming. Hopefully this will also bring back the traditional meat pie. The sort that white people (Greeks) used to sell to other white people (skips).

Apart from the questionable contribution of the kebab is there any other positive impact on Australia by the 300,000 trespassing muslims?

What i was getting at is that the kids that get into tertiary institutions are the hard working ones. The ones who go on to become accountants, lawyers, doctors, public servants, engineers etc... They dont serve the middle east or china. They serve Australia. They pay taxes. And their taxes will be used for the betterment of Australian society, not china or saudi arabia.

How funny for a Muslim to pretend not to know about rape.

The Koran instructs Muslims to use murder, rape, and slavery in order to take over a country of non-believers, such as Australia and the UK.

While this wicked, evil faith is being recognised as the cancer of society in the UK that it is, we will soon see evidence of paedophile grooming of white girls by home grown Muslim paedophiles in Australia.

Can you please post these Quranic instructions you lying scum fuck?

Haven't you read the koran, Law Student?

Your language is not very becoming of a good muslim either.

Anon -

"Haven't you read the koran, Law Student?"

I have read the Quran. And it does not "instruct Muslims to use murder, rape, and slavery in order to take over a country of non-believers."

I am still waiting for you to post verses of the Quran which instruct so.

If you fail to back up your absurd assertion with Quranic verses, then i would take it that you're admitting:
"I, Anonymous, is a dumb ass piece of fuck who knows shit all about anything."

Law student could you please remain civil. I know it's hard for you to learn from your betters and cultural superiors but please refrain from swearing. The day will come when you and your fellow meteorite-worshipers will be so desperate to escape the bullet that you will be eating your own excreta off the floor of the extermination camp. Until that day please have a clean mouth. I know it must be difficult for you to differentiate your arse from your mouth. You aren't a shepherd boy in some muslim country being sodomised by the local mullah. Unlike your own country we expect Australian lawyers to have a sense of decorum even if they are stupid, lazy and crazy conmen like Irf.

Sorry to bring insults down to your simpleton level. Yes the imam never played with your scrotum because you don't have one. There was someone pretending to be a muslim girl who first started with the boring catholic pedophile line. Was that you pretending to be a girl? Or are you just copying the stupid comments of a girl?

For making fun of the serious issue of child sexual assault you will rot in hell. And then rot some more for being a muslim. And then rot some more for wanting to become a lawyer.

You are a piece of muslim. Just get muslimed you musliming muslim.

I think that might be an appeal to the white people of the world for some sort of mercy in the coming alcoholocaust. After such a temperate and lucid appeal to rationality by law student we can make three simple conclusions:

1) There are serious problems with the education system if people as stupid as law student are allowed to matriculate with an HSC let alone study some sort of Law even if law student found the entry form for his law course on the side of a breakfast cereal box.

2) Law student should put back his signature nigger gangsta homeboy photo because it is far better at expressing what a pathetic unfit subhuman he really is.

3) If law student represents the best and brightest of muslim youth in Australia he is further proof of why no muslim will ever make a positive contribution given their low average intelligence. Law Student is proof of why the entire muslim community should be deported rather than be allowed to stay to the detriment of all real Australians.
