Threats of violence from religious bigots is all it takes for an Australian university to censor its students

Wakademia is always the first to cave in bend over:

Surrendering freedom to the violent: ANU censors student paper for mocking Islam

Utterly disgraceful. Weak. Unprincipled.

Note, incidentally, how the Press Council is again cited as an instrument of censorship. Newspaper proprietors need to re-examine this dangerous drift.  (Andrew Bolt)

Quote of the Day

The Boston Herald‘s Joe Fitzgerald (via Tim Blair)

If ever there was a time to deal with facts, not feelings, it’s now.

No offense to Allah, but God help us if we don’t wake up.

There is racism, but its not what you think:

 Aborigines at the football game slashed an Australian flag, replaced the Union Jack with an Aboriginal one and were abusive. Security was called but removed no one. A 13-year old  (white) girl copped it all.

In any case, the invading third world hordes are undeterred:

A new development in what the Press Council tells journalists not to call illegal immigration:

Boat people: now out of Africa, too

Three vessels carrying Africans have now arrived this month with the boats, detected near Christmas Island, leaving from Indonesia.

 We need immigration, not colonisation. And honesty, not censorship

AS Stockholm burns and a soldier is hacked to death in London, I recall the foolish words of Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus.

Dreyfus represents the federal seat which takes in much of Greater Dandenong, more than half of whose population comes from overseas.

Here is the sunny picture he painted of Dandenong two months ago: “Our community is a wonderful example to others of a modern, diverse and harmonious society.”

Mind you, it is easy to rhapsodise about mass immigration, especially from poor and Muslim lands, when you live not in your fabulously diverse electorate but 20km away, in the very affluent and very white suburb of Malvern.

That may explain why this “harmonious society” of “150 different nationalities” turns out to be not quite the “wonderful example” Dreyfus claims.

Last month, The Age reported: “Around Dandenong, young men stalk parks in gangs and rob anyone who walks through.

    From Back Page to Front Page: ‘Advice’ from the ANU

    May 26, 2013 By The Woroni Editors

    As many of you will be aware, the “Advice from Religion” infographic on the back page of Woroni, Edition

    5 2013, caused a flurry of activity. However, what you might not know is that over the course of a week,

    the Woroni board was twice summoned to the Chancelry, individually threatened with disciplinary action along with the authors of the piece, and informed that Woroni’s funding allocation could be compromised.


  2. Folks,
    Please write the ANU VC and protest. I think that if the article is not reinstated, then lobbying to remove those who cold not stand up to muslim parasites should begin.

  3. If smashing Al’Lat (Allah’s sister) to pieces is not a sign of misogyny, I don’t know what is. We really should stop all this pussyfooting around religion

  4. Stop spending money on processing Muslim “refugees.” If they’re Muslims, they aren’t refugees – they’re invaders.

    Start spending more money on your navy.

    Sink ’em. Word will get around that Australia is not a good place to go.

  5. We must stand up for our values

    A SERIES of uncomfortable events has left many of us wondering at what point our determination not to overreact risks becoming an under-reaction to extremist views.

    The failure of a man to stand for a magistrate and the failure of a university to support its students’ time-honoured practice of chucking rocks at religion for fear of inciting retribution are disquieting. A recent incident in which men and women were separated at a university lecture left many people with a sense of unease although once again it was hard for anyone to argue this was extremist and the matter passed quickly.

    Many people find it hard to discuss how disquieting these events are because they are not horrifying. It’s easy to discuss openly an act of violence, a clear threat, a broken law. What is hard for tolerant people to discuss is the growing unease they feel about arguably minor events that hint at appeasement towards values with which many of us disagree vehemently.

    Australia has shared its boundless plains with people of every faith and creed. There is optimism to be found in reminding ourselves how many seemingly different newcomers have become happy neighbours, colleagues and friends.

    But the disquiet manifesting in discussions about gender segregation or censorship is not really about the behaviour of a few misguided and arguably unrepresentative individuals.

    It’s about the capitulation of our leading institutions to views antithetical to the very Australian values which have allowed the races and creeds of the world to put aside their differences and live here as one people.

    Unlike previous generations, the new immigrants are arriving at a time when we have lost some pride in our traditional institutions and values.

    A university that teaches students not to exercise the freedom of speech they should treasure has certainly lost some confidence in itself. Universities should be the first to celebrate and if necessary defend fearless debate.

    Along with urging responsible members of immigrant communities to lead the way to social harmony, it may be helpful if mainstream society were to lead the way.

    The more firmly we defend the values that make our country safe, prosperous and harmonious, the faster we will curb the extreme elements who diminish their own community as surely as they do the wider community.

    It is often proposed here and in other countries that citizenship tests can be used to ensure newcomers understand and respect our laws and ways of living. While no doubt civics would be useful to prospective citizens, it could be equally valuable to the wider community who sometimes need to be reminded that our Australian values are worth, quite literally, standing up for.

  6. DD,

    We should not print the names of the ANU panel members, because that could be construed as a physical threat against the weeners. However, we can lobby the government and the government and the university about this.

    The only reason than the muslim invaders are getting their way is not only because they threaten, but they strongly lobby as an imagined victim. We need to be lobbying the government with the truth – we should not be staying silent on these issues. The problem will not go away until WE resolve it – you cannot rely on any politician to do your thinking for you.

    1. @Kaw, I must disagree with your last assertion:

      We should publish the names of traitors, simply because they have decided to expose us to increased moslem danger, in order to save only their own worthless skins by enabling it. They and their policies directly and physically threaten the lives of all the rest of us – our co-workers, friends, neighbours, families and children. They cannot maintain the right to betray us to these holy mobster extortionist criminals, while avoiding the responsibility for their actions under a cloak of anonymity.
