The Sounds of Silence Instead of Honesty !
As Stockholm burns, a soldier is hacked to death in London and a soldier is knifed in France, Andrew Bolt, my favourite journalist, recalls the foolish words of Australia's Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus; a supplicant to the God-of-Multiculturalism. Dreyfus represents the federal seat which takes in much of Greater Dandenong, more than half of whose population comes from overseas. Here is the sunny picture he painted of Dandenong two months ago: ''Our community is a wonderful example to others of a modern, diverse and harmonious society.''
Mind you, it is easy to rhapsodise about mass immigration (even though this country is getting swamped with 3000 illegal aliens a month), especially from poor and Muslim lands, when you live not in your ''fabulously'' diverse electorate but 20 km away, in the very affluent and very white suburb of Malvern. That may explain why this ''harmonious society'' of ''150 different nationalities'' turns out to be not quite the ''wonderful example'' Dreyfus claims.
Last month, The Age newspaper reported: ''Around Dandenong, young Sudanese men stalk parks in gangs and rob anyone who walks through. About 300 others brawled so viciously at a 21st birthday party last year that police had to use capsicum spray. There is certainly a public fear of violence. One caller tells police she has seen about 50 Sudanese men heading towards a party full of Pacific Islanders. The words ''Sudanese'', ''Samoan'' and ''Pacific Islander'' occur surprisingly often in that article and in police statistics for any dupe who believed Dreyfus.
Same with this The Age news report (an uncharacteristically frank newspaper) stating, ''The ethnically diverse city has crime rates almost 40% higher than the state average...Pacific Islander and Sudanese community leaders were informed by Victoria Police last year that their populations were over-represented in crime statistics.'' That's not strange however. A similar over-representation of some immigrant groups, like the Lebanese, is seen in New South Wales prison statistics. No...what's remarkable is that our idiot Attorney-General can stare at ethnic strife and see only a choir singing ''Kumbaya''.
How often our lamestream media succumbs to such willful see-nothing, say-nothing when confronted with the high price of modern mass immigration. The stark Truth gets wrapped in the cotton wool of political correctness. Take the startling example of last week from our Public Service television station, SBS, after the beheading of a British soldier in a London street by two Muslims of Nigerian background. (Note: one of the killers was shown on YouTube shouting: ''There are many, many ayah throughout the Koran that we must fight them as they fight us, an eye for an eye.'' ) Yet in a radio report seven minutes long, SBS host Hannah Sinclair and London journalist Adam Mcllrick wouldn't mention ''Muslim, ''Islam'', or ''Koran''. The dickhead Mcllrick, who'd seen the video, even claimed to have ''no indication'' what motivated the murder. This selective deafness is typical of our public broadcasters.
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) our main non-commercial station also lost its hearing when U.S. army psychiatrist, Nidal Hasan, a known Muslim hothead, shot dead 13 soldiers at Fort Hood while shouting ''God is great !" Silence. Same thing after last month's Boston bombings. ABC's AMs first report didn't once mention ''Muslim'', although it was already known the two Chechen terrorists were Muslim, and the elder one had videos of Islamist terrorists on his Facebook site. True, reporting the faith of ethnicity of the violent perpetrators risks making victims of peaceful members of those groups. But the refusal to be honest means we also risk not understanding what;s happening and fixing what's broken.
The Way I See It....o know the unvarnished truth helps us to understand what we will face, too. Gert Wilders, in his visit to our country a few months ago told us how his country, the Netherlanders, has had a gutful of benevolent multiculturalism (you know, lots of welfare) and is putting a stop to Muslim immigration and he warns us to take heed. Immigration today too often looks like colonisation. Done badly, the host country is left with unassimilated minorities colonising poor suburbs and turning them into ghettos.
Plugged into satellite TV, these parasites maintain their culture and language and, fortified by welfare, keep their distance. Add militant Islam, and some suburbs can become the fault line of a culture war, particularly when young men return from fighting in jihadist groups, as hundreds of Australians are now doing in Syria. I am certainly not saying that this is yet a serious problem here in Australia, but then again, what else are Dreyfus, the ABC, and SBS not telling us?
