I call myself an Australian


An excellent (at least based on this one post I’ve read) blog addressing the bigotry and marginalisation which afflicts this country in thankfully small doses.

Image description - a map of Australia has a series of primary coloured pins placed upon it to symbolise diversity.

My parents arrived in this country on a boat, and yet I call myself an Australian.

As a disabled woman, I am in a minority group, yet I call myself an Australian.

But according to racist pages promoting a new rally – the ‘Reclaim Australia Rally’ – ‘patriotic Australians’ need to stand together and stop the minorities from changing our country. They’re marching in April to tell the rest of Australia that they don’t want halal certification, burqas and the teaching of Islam in government schools. In short, they don’t want Muslims in our country, and they don’t want our country to change to suit them.

3,306 likes in Perth, and another 500 or so in Bunbury. One in almost every state. It saddens me, because this is the message to…

  1. Who the fuck is Sam Connor???

    True he (?) sounds like an Englishman (“a £10 pom) yet I have NEVER – EVER- met an English-person who is so blatantly muslim.

    £10 Poms came here full of wanting to start a new life.
    They were immediately given the Australian “blessing” acceptance with a nickname.
    Pommy, Pommy bastard or £10 Pom.
    They did not whinge.
    They did not put their hands out – immediately expecting everything to be free.
    The set to and settled in to enjoying life in peace and harmony.

    Greeks arrived and were accepted (Greasies) Italians accepted their nicknames (Ities), French (frogs), Germans (Krauts) Chinese (Slopes), Americans (Yanks or godamn Yankees.

    All wanted to be accepted but not you bastard muslims.

    Those of the islamic lifestyle wanted changes:-
    That their women must wear burkas (which included male terrorists)
    That we permit them to continue slaughtering their animals for food THEIR WAY.
    Yes, Halal – the torture of slowly killing their meat so that it des in agony.
    That their men wear beards so they can keep their identity hidden WHY?

    In the 200 years since colonising has Australia has ever before been subjected to terrorism, to rape of our young women by groups of teenage thugs (the Skaffs), such anti-Australian views been thrown up by the very ones we allowed in as refugees (mindmadeup and all his rotten group), a huge debt in welfare payments to all the I-won’t-work (NOTE the apostrophe – it means I WILL NOT WORK).

    ?SAM CONNOR? says:- “In short, they don’t want Muslims in our country, and they don’t want our country to change to suit them.”

    Whose country are you talking about?

    ENGLAND? They have realised their mistake allowing in so many muslims and now cannot get them out! One even owns the largest department store in England. England certainly paid off for him!!!
    AUSTRALIA? They are bleeding us dry while their young are calling out for more, or jihad inside Australia, or leaving to join he islamic terror group. some have even gone, found out what war was REALLY LIKE and could not get back here fast enough. And then they re-commence their hatred of Australia.

    If you do not like OUR AUSTRALIAN WAY OF LIFE Sam Connor,
    Our door works both ways, here is your hat, what is your hurry?
    Leave by any means, just get the fuck out!!
    AND STAY OUT!!!

  3. #1. Inflammatory . . . MAYBE ! ! !
    #2. Xenophobic . . .POSSIBLY ! ! !
    #3a Bigoted – – – MOST DEFINITELY ! ! !
    Australia was a far better Nation until it began accepting (under
    pressure from the United Nations) to accept all Middle Eastern
    and African rubbish who are predominantly all of the islamic
    following.
    [NOTE: I refuse to call it a religion even though my namesake
    stole ALL his ideas from many other religions.
    NOTHING in islam is of mo’s own ideals.
    Worse, it is NOT even what mo originally intended it to be.
    Whenever those who listened to him AND ULTIMATELY DID
    NOT LIKE any of mo’s teachings, they began leaving him. mo
    changed his mind Arabic Translated:- محمد غير رأيه (recorded
    in many books written on mo’s life)
    #3b BULLSHIT – – – ABSOLUTELY NOT ! ! !

    Word Journeyer, if you consider the above inaccurate, I welcome your reply.
    At least you have the decency to accept other reader’s replies, unlike mindmadeup, and his followers. My relies last barely a few minutes in any of his forums.
    You will also note “Sam Connor” who published the original report on;-

    http://gimpled.blogspot.com.au/2015/01/i-call-myself-australian.html

    where I posted several replies has NEVER responded to even the simplest questions I have asked her such as “Give a name to the ship she and her Parents came out on legally?” This causes me to question whether she really did come out when she claims ‘as a £10 pom.’

    Thank you for allowing me this opportunity to reply, Word Journeyer.

    If you are NOT a fuzzie muzzie then I apologise for insinuating that you are. I have been known to make A MISTAKE with another prolific writer, a Muslim lady (capital this time) who was very polite to me answering my criticisms. She would be the only one like this I have come across in any Word Press’ websites. She was accidentally drawn into mindmadeup’s web by his re-blogging her Forum for his own gratification and aggrandisement.

    :-).

    • WHOOPS MISSED THIS

      Re-read my above post and noted:-

      “NOTHING in islam is of mo’s own ideals.”

      There IS ONE POINT, peculiar to the islamic people which is frowned upon in ALL other religions.

      Should you not understand what this is yet be interested just let me know and I will let you know with a news reported item confirming the continual use of this “fashion”.

      {:-(

      • First, who the hell is “mo”?

        Second, I’ve encountered this thinking before. You have a certain opinion on something (ie against Islam) so you read nothing but anti-Islamic propaganda which further reinforces the “truth” of your opinion. Yet it is not truth. It is bias. It is bigotry. And it does nothing to help, especially not in dealing with religious extremism.

    • Inflammatory: definitely, because you’re taking a problem that does exist, but blowing it way out of proportion. Which only creates more problems.
      Xenophobic: definitely, because your words reek of fear. And massively unfounded fear, at that.
      And bigotry is nothing to claim with pride. Bigotry comes from putting down others in order to feel superior to them. Islam is a popular scapegoat for this activity these days, and many would argue justifiably so. But the problem is, and the Islamic people are, not nearly so bad as they’re made out to be. There are more than 1 billion of them in the world. If even a fraction of them were as evil as many make them out to be, the world would be a much worse place. But it isn’t. And in fact it’s getting better all the time.

      Calm the fuck down. Seriously.
