Someone sent me this message via my contact form:
“The best & only way of improving OUR Australia, is to STOP IMMIGRATION & DEPORT all CHINESE, ASIANS & INDIANS NOW!
We are being OVER-RUN by chinese & indians.
We need someone to be STRONG & stand up for REAL AUSSIES! …HELP AUSTRALIA!”
Here is my answer,
Phillip, I would like you to read about the work of John B. Calhoun. You owe it to yourself to do so, and think about it.
Let me tell you a few stories.
1. Harry was one of my friends in school. He was 6th generation Australian: every one of his great-great-great-grandparents was born in Australia. One day, our teacher was sick, and a substitute came. He said, “Harry, you speak very good English.”
“Thank you, sir.”
“How long have you lived in Australia?”
“Twelve years, sir.”
“Oh? How old are you?”
With a complete deadpan face: “Twelve, sir.”
You see, all those ancestors were Chinese and came here during the goldrush.
2. During my last year in high school, one of the boys knocked out a teacher: an overweight, tired man in his 60s waiting to retire. There was no reason — the bully shouted, “I always wanted to punch a teacher!
Next thing, three kids were restraining me, and the bully was on the ground, his face a hamburger, both arms broken. A policeman interviewed me. He said, “Don’t ever do anything like this again, but good on you, matey.”
That bully was white Anglo Aussie, the kind you want to restrict this country to.
3. Abdullah and Mohammed are quite frequently found Aboriginal surnames. Why? In the early years, camels were imported as inland transport. Muslim, Asian camel drivers came with them. While the British invaders committed terrible cruelties against the Aborigines, these Asians acted in a decent way, and many married into Aboriginal families.
