Cronulla take two

So anyway it seems the thread derailed into the righteous men hitting each other, if nothing else that shows why these things happen. Talking about righteous men:

Quote:
"We grew here, you flew here." Righteous stuff.
Yes, but he probably quoted a native american said to say:

Quote:
"We grew here, you sailed here"
Epic and righteous stuff.

Whats up with people attacking random persons to "to avenge" another attack? Is their head full of dung? If they know that some police where attacked, would they really think that the assailant was a young girl or an elderly couple? don't answer that, they probably just needed to excersize and now found a reason. Still I find the contents of the article a bit over the top:

Quote:
Cronulla beach and looked of middle eastern descent was beaten to a pulp by a crowd of a few thousand waving Australian flags and chanting "**** the Lebs"
Few thousands? impressive beach. doesn't go on par with the ealier statment "bunch of redneck surfies". Typical "journalist" hyperbole.

Quote:
Of the crowd, there was families, with young children, all participating in the racist chants and random beatings of innocent people
Indeed. If not the thing before made you question about how exaggerated this was this sure did. Families beating up random people? Not even some myth about Vikings would claim that. Makes me think of futuristic movies where society have collapsed.

Quote:
Infact, the TV footage which set me over the edge was a young Lebanese girl, she wouldn't be too far away from 20 years of age, being chased by a group of 20 males, kicked and punched from random angles..
I tried to picture this in front of me and fortunately I could not. It does not make sense. For this scene to look realistic they need to punch and kick here with thin pieces of fabric...

Quote:
This is a large part of this nation showing their true faces..
If it really was "thousands" of people on that beach all participating in this then I would say it is a small part of the nation. A incredible troublesome and ****ed up part of the nation though, one that makes me rethink a sun and bath vacation in australia. Not for risk of being beaten up, but with risk for being associated with them since I look like one of those "white people".

Quote:
"They should go back to their own country"
It is always entertaining when people in a country built on immigration says this. while in the longer run pretty much all countries is that, it doesn't make it less entertaining. Note, the first immigrants to Australia was criminals, maybe they want to believe they are one of them

Finally, what is a "wog"?

who the hell cares about Cronulla, honestly unless u actually live there...its pff
problem is, stuff like this don't happen often enough in Australia, so when something like this does happen, the media pounces on it like a cheeta leaping out of the bushes onto the unsuspecting gazelle, the whole things been blown out of proportion, we should just be thankful we don't like in america or france

Are these racist/xenophobic people only against Lebanese presence, or all expat and immigrant communities within Australia?

Don't lament the treachery of time;
long have dogs danced over the carcasses of lions.

Don't suppose that their dancing raises them above their masters;
for dogs remain dogs, and lions remain lions.

Insult me as you wish;
For my silence to the depraved is a response.

It's not that I have no response, but;
A lion does not reply to a dog.

Everyone should leave in that case, and let the aboriginies take over, or shut the feck up, and let others live.

This was a tinderbox waiting to explode. Apparently tensions have been building for months. There have been several alledged incidents of Lebanese attacks on white Australian girls, probably exagerated. And the racists have picked up on this and the problems have escalated. Like any Country, Immigrants from different backgrounds, religeons and beliefs have settled into there own enclosed communities and not integrated into Australian society. This is not their fault and is a political problem of housing the immigrants in one place only away from the majority. So a few have caused problems for their whole community. Racism exists everywhere. Howard obviously lives in cloud cukoo land if he believes no Australians are racist!

They are against anybody that is not white. Oh...unless you are white and muslim.....or if you look abit different to them. Then you are to leave right away and stop taking over the country!

Seriously, they don't even know themselves. It is not even about the Lebanese community anymore. Now there is talk of rallies in Asian areas and so on..

They're just looking for excuses to act like trash... I've also heard about Lebanese youth harassing girls on the beach and so forth, and about a few of them now having riots of their own, but that's no reason for white trash to take it out on anyone that looks even remotely Arab. At the very least, if they have to go take their anger out on someone, they could do it on their Lebanese counterparts, not innocent bystanders.

I don't know if Australia is inheritily different from Sweden in this case, but I doubt everyone is just put in the same place and can't move there. No instead I find that most immigrants by choice choose to live at the same place, sometimes moving over half the country. Nothing strange here as they want to live with people of the same background, would be no different if Swedes in a bigger group moved to Nigeria. "Chinatown" and "Little Italy" wasn't created by the state...

A Redundant question that is, because they dont care. And are only after an excuse. Truly showing their true colours and going after every non-anglo-german-irish group in Australia. Quite sad bunch.

Good to see that the Australian gov gave the police more jurisdiction, to take of these bastards.

I previously read an article about American students fielding racism in Australian colleges. I cant find the original article, but the text was posted in the first thread of this blog:

Racism is pretty cool down under, huh?

"... even female Australian students were verbally abusive."

So? Are only male students supposed to be verbally abusive? How sexist.

This is another similarity between Australia and the US; the universities are hotbeds of far left hatred.


Δεν ελπίζω τίποτε. Δεν φοβάμαι τίποτε. Είμαι λεύτερος.

Justice is judgement that is both fair and forgiving. Justice is not done until everyone is satisfied, even those who offend us. Justice is not only the way we punish those who do wrong but is also the way we try to save them.
