Aussie Commie Governor: Only Dictatorship Can Save Us Now

America is not alone:

Victoria’s governor seeks a  benevolent commie dictatorship that is committed to the global warming fraud, of course:

David de Kretser, Victoria’s governor:

what’s held us to “slow progress” in tackling global warming is “democratic systems of government, with elections…”

Andrew Bolt: de Kretser’s naked politicking and radical green preaching has caused concern for at least a year. The Governor is meant to be a bipartisan and politically neutral figure. If he insists on playing politics, especially out among the radical Left, he must resign. If de Kretser claims global warming is the “greatest problem confronting mankind” and now causes a “state of emergency”  that requires the removal of democracy, then what place has de Kretser in  this system of government of ours that he has actually sworn (and been paid) to uphold?

  1. * a “state of emergency” that requires the removal of democracy

    Could it be that adoption of some sort of sharia “law”, or islamic “values” might be involved? Difficult to say, but …

    GOVERNOR’S WELCOME

    The Program commenced with the welcome speech presented by the Governor of Victoria. Prof David de Kretser thanked the guests for accepting his invitation and said, “Victoria is a peaceful state in which many different cultures live in harmony. We are aware of the significance of Ramadan and fasting for Muslims, and we know that Ramadan has the unique ingredients for bringing people together and strengthening the bonds of friendship. I thank the Australian Intercultural Society for their role in making this evening possible. I am delighted by the picture of sincerity and friendship we are beholding here in this Iftar Dinner at Government House this evening. AIS in an important organization that plays a great role in abolishing misunderstandings by bringing Melbournians together and building bridges between different communities and Government departments. The AIS was established by second generation Australian Turks and it has been an exemplary organization for everyone. I would like to thank them for their relentless efforts.”

    AZAN CALL AND BREAKING OF FAST

    When the time came for Iftar, the Azan was called and the Iftar prayer was offered by theologian Mehmet Seker. Following the breaking of fast, Muslim guests performed their prayers at the hall where the Queen accepted guests on her visits to Australia. The official program commenced with recitation from the Quran with English translation presented through PowerPoint display. The program continued with a speech by Dr Salih Yucel, a lecturer at Monash University. Following Salih Yucel’s speech titled “Social and personal aspects of Ramadan”, Australian Sufi Music Group performed their mystical music that mesmerized all those present. The program then continued with a reflection session in which guests were given the opportunity to present their views.

    FETHULLAH GULEN PEACE AWARD

    It was time for the award ceremony. Throughout the recent years, the AIS have been presenting meaningful awards to important individuals that have displayed significant effort for peace, social harmony, social cohesion and tolerance. This year the awards for great achievements were presented by the Governor of Victoria. The first of the awards was a gift of appreciation presented to Governor’s wife, Mrs. Jan de Kretser by Turkan Cicek on behalf of the Muslim community. Then Orhan Cicek, executive advisor of the AIS presented the Governor of Victoria a special award titled, ‘Fethullah Gulen Peace Award 2008’.

  4. I’m just searching on [“David de Kretser” islam], and finding enough to set my spidey senses tingling. I don’t know whether becoming a republic & ditching appointed Governors & Governors General would do anything to stop the rot.

    Many Distinguished Guests
    Ladies and Gentlemen:
    I would like to begin by acknowledging the traditional owners of this land, the Kulin Nations, and pay my respects to their elders and any other elders who may be present here today.

    Jan and I are truly delighted to be here tonight to join with you all to celebrate the opening of this wonderful exhibition. This exhibition will encourage cultural diversity, disseminate artistic knowledge and promote art from the Islamic and developing world to a wide range of the Victorian public.

    Melbourne’s population is drawn from more than 200 different communities, in which 100 different religious faiths are practised, and more than 180 different languages are spoken. We have become a vibrant multicultural city thanks to the migrants and refugees who have settled here over the years.

    Unfortunately, we do live in a time of global tensions, with events such as September 11, the Bali bombings and the Cronulla Riots creating at times a negative impression of Muslims in our community. These terrorist activities are threatening changes in our approach to migration and to the acceptance of refugees. The fear and suspicion caused by these acts challenges the concept of multiculturalism that has been the cornerstone of our migration policy since the end of the White Australia Policy over 30 years ago.

    Attempts to develop language requirements for citizenship, and criticisms of traditional forms of dress and religious practice, only serve to accentuate cultural divisions, and perpetuate intolerance. I was immensely heartened recently by my discussions with people who attended a reception at which the Victorian Multicultural Awards were presented. Some of these were migrants who came to Australia shortly after the 2nd World war. In English that was still not polished, they extolled the virtues of this country and the opportunities that it had afforded them. If these views were present when those who received awards arrived in Australia, we are likely to have lost the contributions of those who struggled with the English language.

    Victoria has a growing Islamic community and creating social cohesion between new and developing communities and those already established is vital. I commend The Interfaith Society of Melbourne for having the fore site for supporting and holding this exhibition. Your organisation plays such an important role in promoting understanding and respect about the world’s religious communities in Victoria and promotes dialogue and friendship between communities, which in turn will help to promote a peaceful coexistence. Australians must learn to work together in order for Victoria to grow as a successful multicultural and multi-faith nation.

    Given Australia’s multicultural society, arts at all levels of practice should reflect this fact. Since the 1970s, there have been varying degrees of recognition by Australian Governments through public policy, that cultural expression should be available and accessible to all Australians. It is recognised that this cultural expression will take, and needs to take place, in a wide range of forms and meanings that extend beyond traditional AngloCeltic definitions of arts practice.

    This exhibition does just that and will provide people with an excellent opportunity to learn about a range of far reaching countries, the artists and their lives. I also hope that it will help Muslims within the Victorian community to feel proud of their culture and heritage at a time when their culture is often portrayed in a negative light.

    The wonderful thing about art is that it transcends culture, history, gender and religion. No matter our age, heritage or beliefs we can all be inspired when viewing an exhibition such as this. John Berger the famous 20th Century Art Critic, novelist and painter puts it perfectly, and I quote… “The strange power of art is sometimes it can show that what people have in common is more urgent than what differentiates them.” Art is also a fantastic way to give minority people and populations who would not otherwise have a voice an opportunity to express themselves and tell their stories.

    I was also extremely pleased to hear that this exhibition will be travelling to Shepparton to take part in the SheppARTon Festival. So often our rural and regional communities do not have the chance to see the range of wonderful exhibitions that we are lucky enough to have in Melbourne. With a growing Islamic community in Shepparton, this exhibition will provide a wonderful opportunity for members of the local community to see art from different Islamic Countries, for many people this will be the first opportunity to do so.

    It is my hope that this exhibition will be seen by many in our community and will help to promote cultural and religious understanding and therefore peace and tolerance.

    It is now my great pleasure to declare the ‘Breaking the Veils: Women Artists from the Islamic World Open.

    Thank you

  5. Thanks for that, Mullah.

    In other words, this Kretser is not only a red hot commie and a lose cannon warmist, but also an eager tool for the Islamization of Australia.
    No surprises here….

    Well, the least we can do is keep an eye on him….
