Cory Bernardi calling for crack-down on migrants who refused to integrate
Why should he? Since when is it wrong to be right?
Is the Gillard government calling citizens and policitians who oppose the Islamization of this country racist?
What race is ‘Muslim’ again?
Bernardi isn’t backing down (Andrew Bolt)
Opposition parliamentary secretaryÂ Cory Bernardi sounds strident to me, but the difficulty comes in trying to argue against him on the facts, rather than the tone:
“Islam itself is the problem – it’s not Muslims,” he told radio station MTR.
I beg to differ. With Muslims comes Islam. And sharia. And a whole lot of demands which will destroy us.
“Muslims are individuals that practise their faith in their own way, but Islam is a totalitarian, political and religious ideology.
“It tells people everything about how they need to conduct themselves, who they’re allowed to marry and how they’re allowed to treat other people.”
Senator Bernardi said Islam had “not moved on” since it was founded and that extremists wanted fundamentalist Islamic rule implemented in Australia.
The audio of Bernardi’s interview with Chris Smith isÂ here.

More from Bolt:
WHEN you hear “racist!’ now, you know some coward is once again just trying to shut a debate he fears he can’t win.
No one who knows the Opposition’s immigration spokesman, Scott Morrison, would dream he’s racist, as so many commentators now imply.
His real offence is that in shadow cabinet he suggested the Coalition tackle an issue of growing public concern before it turned even uglier.
That issue is Muslim integration. And add now the Gillard Government’s new defence of multiculturalism, a policy to fund what divides us that the leaders of France, England and Germany say has failed in their countries.
What broke multiculturalism there is also killing it here. That we have trouble integrating our 400,000 Muslims is beyond question, even if it’s also true that most make fine citizens.
“Most” make fine citizens, Andrew? Why do you say that? If “most” make fine citizens, then our problem is just weeding out the not-fine citizens. But there is a pathology in them that makes them inherently hostile to us. Just listen to what Muslims say and how they behave. They might work, pay taxes, obey the law, but they are hostile to us and will attack us along with their brethren as soon as their imam gives them the cue. Â Just consider India at Partition. All those Muslims who were ordinary people then suddenly started killing Hindus. Or the mob in Cairo which assaaulted that journalist. They are ALL dangerous, because they are taught from birth that we are filth.
And, as I have said before, what will they be like when Australia is no longer a rich country, and we no longer can afford to pay them just to live and breed?
Here are some statistics from a minority that’s actually smaller than our Buddhist one. Muslims here are more than twice as likely as the rest of us to be without work. Their children are twice as likely to be jobless, and three times more likely to be poor.
Their imprisonment rates are higher, and all 20 of the people we’ve jailed on terrorism-related offences are Muslim.
The reassurances offered by Muslim leaders are rarely much comfort.
Take Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali, for many years Mufti of Australia, despite praising suicide bombers as “heroes” and calling the September 11 attacks “God’s work against oppressors”.
Hilali this week played down Muslim terrorism here by telling The Australian’s Sally Neighbour: “There are people who have the mindset to commit harm, but no one has the capacity to execute anything.”
As long as we keep catching them, we’re safe. But the bigger this community gets, the bigger the threat.
As the Labor Government admits in its own 2010 White Paper on terrorism: “The scale of the problem will continue to depend on factors such as the size and make-up of local Muslim populations.”
So with the number of Muslims here projected to increase by 80 per cent by 2030, any party that won’t discuss immigration betrays its duty to preserve harmony and public safety.
And any party that thinks the answer is just more multicultural tribalism is a fool.
Who’s invading us?
Sarkozy now wants theÂ law to rein in Islam
“He said the French had “paid dear” for their blindness towards immigration during the 1980s, when debate was taboo.”
Last week Sarkozy joined British Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in announcing “multiculturalism is not working” and setting out to formalize the relationship between Islam and the fiercely secular state of France, France24 reported Friday.
Sarkozy’s call for the debate is viewed as a move to woo voters from the far-right National Front party.
“It is out of the question that French society should be influenced by Islam,” Sarkozy said. “This is a secular country.”
France24 said one member of the conservative Union for a Popular Movement told right-wing publication Le Figaro: “The role of Islam in France is going to be a central issue in the 2012 presidential campaign.”
Although Catholicism runs deep in France, secularism is enforced by a 1905 law stating:
“The Republic does not officially recognize, pay salaries for, nor subsidize any religion.
“It is henceforth forbidden to erect or display any religious signs or emblems publicly, and political meetings may not take place in places of worship.”
Legislation in 2004 banned the display of religious symbols, including crucifixes, in schools, and last autumn the ban was extended to include the wearing of the full Islamic veil in public places.
The law also bans religious processions but does not address prayer meetings in the city streets, some resulting from overcrowding issues.
“We need to have a debate on prayer meetings in the streets,” France24 reported Sarkozy said to his right-wing faithful. “In a secular country, we cannot tolerate having a public call to prayer.
