Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)



Why no condemnation of the racist nature of the Reclaim Australia rallies Mr Abbott and Mr Shorten?

Opposition Labor Party leader Bill Shorten has condemned the exaggerated fears about Sharia Law and the ‘violence’ at the Reclaim (White) Australia rallies.

Pity the weak kneed shit for brains hasn’t also condemned the racist rallies themselves. No, that would be a step too far for the racist Parliamentary Labor Party, the party that supports brutalising refugees and attacking indigenous Australians (through for example the racist NT intervention).

As for our racist Prime Minister, Tony Abbott has not said a word about the Reclaim (White) Australia rallies, let alone condemned them for their racism.

Racism flows from the top down.  Both Labor and Liberal governments have had and have racist polices, including their almost bipartisan policies against refugees, against Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders, and dog whistles like that emanating from the NSW Labor election campaign against Chinese investors.

Why the silence on the racist nature of the Reclaim Australia rallies Mr Abbott and Mr Shorten? Could it be not only that you condone this racism but that your policies and actions have given it life and support? You can’t condemn your own children. Is that it?

ISLAM IS A RELIGION. John, you are brainlessly parroting racism when Islam embraces all coloured skins from black to white, some of the latter going off to ISIS. Danny Nulliah,leader of Rise Up, is a Tamil.

Yes, and what the Reclaim White Australia movement is about is an exclusionary vision of Australia. That is racist. Judaism isn’t a race either but I am pretty confident targeting the other in the case of Jews is racism. Wow, you have a Tamil involved. Big deal. There are uncle Toms in lots of movements and when the time comes the fascists can classify him as sub-human. He is convenient cover for the broad racist movement and of course as part of the right-wing nutter faction has a role to play in arguing for exclusion of certain groups, in this case Muslims. He is one of the privileged wanting to protect their positions at the expense of the oppressed. BTW, in fascist Italy one of Mussolini’s ministers,for a time, was Jewish.
