Australia's “Cranks and Crazies”

Oz turds  for Obamunism

Anyone planning to escape to Australia if Obama is reelected may want to think again. The combination of kookery and outlandish waste known here as Obamunism has also taken root  Down Under:

Australian Treasurer Wayne Swan, increasingly unhinged:

“Let’s be blunt and acknowledge the biggest threat to the world’s biggest economy are the cranks and crazies that have taken over the Republican Party,” Swan said in Sydney, according to Reuters .

Andrew Bolt:  I’d worry about the crank spending our cash like crazy

Bob Carr, a dangerous lunatic

He was (one of)  the first to run to Egypt to pay the jiziya:

 “Australia was an early and strong supporter of Egypt’s democratic transition. And we’re supporting that transition with more than $20 million in assistance for agriculture, reducing youth unemployment and the elimination of land mines.”– (You wish!)

He’s inauguration speech reads like “I don’t know where we’re going as long as I’m in for the ride…. wherever it goes”- just about sums it up. The guy is a monumental failure and an ongoing embarrassment:

Arab Nations Should Help West Grasp Islam, Says Australia’s FM
All it takes is ‘proper education’, you see.  Add a little submission, do away with freedom of speech, add 17 secret herbs and spices and she’ll be right.

MELBOURNE, Sept 21 (Bernama) — Australia’s Foreign Minister Bob Carr says Arab governments should fund explanations of Islam in western languages to avoid a “nightmarish clash” of civilisations. …  More grasping at Bernama (Thanks to Mullah)

No wonder! Creepiness is contagious:

Shame on you, Australia!

Why is Wilders still blocked, when Islamists can waltz in?

Coalition immigration spokesman Scott Morrison on the Immigration Minister waving in an Islamist hate-preacher but stalling on a visa for anti-Islamist Dutch politician Geert Wilders: 

if he is happy for Mustafa to come, he can hardly now reject Wilders’s application.

Such a warning shames Australia

That such a warning should be issued in Australia shames us:

THE United States has advised its citizens to keep away from Martin Place and Hyde Park this weekend amid fears of another outbreak of anti-American violence.Australia’s high commission in Islamabad has been temporarily closed due to fears of violent protests.

More Kristallnacht “Freedom”-

Attacking Jewish businesses is cool; criticising Muhammad not so much…..

“Tiny minority of excremists’ update:

[U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations Susan] Rice said the mobs outside U.S. and other Western facilities in several Muslim-majority countries are a ”small minority” of the population, and the Obama administration will continue to stand with the vast majority of people who want freedom …Define “small”

Wankers & flakes:

Sky News today reported on the controversy over the Charlie Hebdo magazine. It blurred out the cover, above, showing an image of the Prophet Mohammad.

Geert Wilders

A Dutch political leader who warns against Islamic radicalism has trouble getting permission to come here, but an Islamic hate preacher is waved through. 

Something here is very wrong:

Supporters of controversial anti-Islam campaigner Geert Wilders fear he may be refused entry to Australia ahead of his planned speaking tour next month.

The reason (for the delay) is that the Dutch politician is on the Movement Alert List, a database of people of concern to Australia. It means his application is held up at the Department of Immigration headquarters in Canberra while more thorough checks are done.


He is on the list because of his previous brushes with authorities abroad. In 2009 he was refused entry to the UK but later appealed and won. He was also tried and acquitted in the Netherlands on hate charges over his controversial public comments.

Meanwhile, though:

The decision for the (Immigration) minister comes after he approved a visa for Taji Mustafa, the British head of Islamist group Hizb Ut-Tahrir.

Mr Mustafa, though, is not on the Movement Alert List.

Incredible. Here is some of Hizb Ut-Tahrir’s latest press release, endorsing the recent protests against some YouTube clip:

The US Ambassdor to Australia, Jeffrey Bleich, claims that his ‘homeland’ has been unfairly targeted by ‘Muslim extremism’ in the wake of the film. Australian officials too have expressed surprise at why the United States is the target of Muslim anger. We remind him and them that the US administration has a long record of exploitative interference in the Muslim World. From drone strikes in Pakistan, to soldiers burning copies of the Quran in Afghanistan, to torture by rendition, to Guantanamo Bay, Abu Ghraib, and Baghram airbase. The list is as long as it is ugly. So do not feign surprise….

The large-scale and praiseworthy reaction from Muslims globally to the insulting film is not about the film alone. The film is merely a trigger and the latest manifestation of a persistent Western attack against Islam and Muslims. An attack defined by the likes of the unjust and savage invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, the Danish Cartoons, decades of Western support for dictators in the Muslims, decades of economic and political subjation of Muslim lands, and decades of preventing the Muslim World from assuming its own political destiny…

With respect to the protest in Sydney on Saturday 15/09/12, Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia had nothing to do with its organisation or execution. We do not condone violent protest. However, we affirm that primary responsibility for what occurred lies squarely on the powerful institutions of society – media and the political establishment in particular – which continually attack Islam and Muslims, creating the grievances that give rise to such incidents, isolating youth, and causing social tension.

  1. Labor grey eminency Graham Richardson gets it (partly) right for once.

    Good for him if he believes in his “Muslim friends”, those of us who are familiar with the Islamic doctrine won’t buy any, so he still has much blood to lose. But the stuff about the PC taking us over the edge is spot on.

    The link is

    but for those who don’t have a digital subscription, here is the full text, which is SPOT ON.

    LAST Saturday’s riots in the Sydney CBD were the inevitable conclusion of too many years of political correctness, timidity and an overdeveloped tendency to turn a blind eye.

    For the past decade in Sydney, which is home to the largest Muslim population in Australia, the trouble looming in Sydney’s western suburbs has been ignored. The media, cowed by mostly invisible codes of political correctness, have shied away from the responsibility to inform and to tell the truth. The fact that hundreds of Lebanese Muslim youths have been running amok, running foul of the law and running unchecked by parents, imams and police alike should never have been shielded from the public.

    To allow an organisation such as Hizb ut-Tahrir to spread jihadist propaganda, to recruit among Muslim youth, to import speakers from other countries who despise Western values and thumb their noses at our institutions was always folly. These organisations achieve no purpose other than to push young men into a lunatic fringe which endangers us all.

    Hizb ut-Tahrir apparently has two great recruiting areas. First there is the Lakemba mosque, Australia’s biggest mosque which is attended every week by tens of thousands of worshippers. The second area is the prison system and this is the area where few journalists have been game to tread. Criminality among young Lebanese men is way too high.

    The riots last Saturday were not the first time many of these young men had exhibited anti-social tendencies. For too many it is how they live their lives — how they demonstrate their contempt for all things Western.
    Whenever you say anything such as, “some of my best friends are Muslims”, you get into strife. In my case, however, it is true. These people are horrified at what happened last week. They are just like the rest of us, trying to earn an honest dollar and trying to live their lives in peace. They all know how much last Saturday hurt the image of Muslims in this country. This was ably demonstrated by their leaders coming out so strongly in condemnation of these idiots who resorted to such crude violence.

    The tragedy is that most of those at the demonstrations last week wanted to act peaceably. You could see them pleading in vain with the idiots to back off.

    The vast majority of Muslims abhor what happened but they share guilt with the rest of us for not facing up to their problems. It was wonderful to see the leaders of so many Islamic groups coming out to attack the clowns who did their collective image so much harm but they should have claimed ownership of the problem a long time ago. Ask any copper in western Sydney about these out-of-control young men and they will tell you chapter and verse about the violence and criminality they cause every day in Australia’s biggest city.

    I am sick and tired of hearing these young blokes described as being disenfranchised and alienated as if they are the victims. This is rubbish. No one alienated or disenfranchised them — they chose to stand apart. Whenever they refer to the rest of us as infidels, they give the game up. If this is such a shameful country you wonder why they are so desperate to get here?

    It would be easy to suggest that education would fix the problem, given that most of the violent protesters leave school early. While tempted to believe in that solution I came across an article in The Sydney Morning Herald on Wednesday written by a PhD candidate at the University of Melbourne, one Mohamad Tabbaa.
    The article was extraordinary only for the paucity of its arguments. Tabbaa tried to explain away the violence by suggesting that these young blokes had witnessed Muslims being killed, burned, crushed and oppressed in places around the world as diverse as China, Afghanistan, Iraq, Burma, Palestine, Kashmir, Guantanamo and Chechnya. The grievances gleaned from all this oppression is the reason for the anger. “When a Muslim man is crushed in Palestine, they lament the loss of their brother,” he writes. He says we should “start discussing it honestly and genuinely”. When I read that I realised there could be no reckoning or reasoning with these people.

    If the continual sight of Muslims being killed was at the core of the hatred in the hearts of these young men, I couldn’t help but wonder how they felt when they watched the goings on in Syria on the nightly news. Muslims are slaughtering Muslims every day but these loons don’t seem to think that is worth demonstrating about and Tabbaa didn’t consider it worth a mention.

    He did mention deaths of Muslims in Afghanistan being perpetrated by Western forces but you have to wonder why we didn’t see protests through the long years of civil war in that poor blighted country.

    On my show on SKY News, when I challenged Tabbaa about the omission of Syria from his list, he could only respond with the ludicrous claim that western governments had supported the Assad regime. This of course had nothing to do with the price of fish and it ably shows how hopeless it is trying to reason with those who show no reason. I trust they don’t hand out PhDs with lottery tickets at the University of Melbourne. Tabbaa’s thesis will need to withstand analysis a hell of a lot better than his foray into social commentary in the SMH.
    Senior police and Muslim community leaders have met to try to come to grips with the difficulties we now all face at the hands of a radicalised few. We all allowed this to get out of hand over the past decade and this is one genie which will prove very difficult to put back in the bottle.

  2. I love Bob Carr’s idea of getting Arab governments to ‘explain Islam’. Unless one is predisposed to irrational religious fervor, learning about the true nature of Islam is a sure fire way to ensure worldwide revulsion for this vile ideology. The more one learns, the more alarmed and determined to oppose Islamification one becomes.

  3. Jennifer,
    This is more than enough information to alarm – but it is suppressed. By whom and fir what reason??? This question need an answer

  4. Why are people horrified when Muslims behave Islamically?

    The young boy holding that “offensive” poster calling for people to be beheaded for insulting the prophet is a good Muslim.
    The Reliance of the Traveller states in Law o8.1 on apostacy that whoever is sane and has reached puberty and leaves Islam deserves to be killed. Us kafirs were born as Muslims so we must now be considered as apostates and killed.
    Moreover in Law o8.7 (4) it states that to revile Allah or his messenger is grounds for being killed.

    In Sura 47:4 and Sura 8:12 Muslims are told to behead us and strike at our necks.

    So those signs that we find offensive are actually just islam in action.
    Why do idiots like Bob Carr find them offensive?

  5. Dear Wayne Swan,
    according to Sigmund Freud, projection is a psychological defense mechanism whereby one “projects” one’s own undesirable thoughts, motivations, desires, and feelings onto someone else.
    Keep your nose out of it you commie prick..!
