Why are sections of the Australian media – and especially the ABC – giving any credence whatsoever to the libellous claim that Australian Â sailors forced illegal immigrants to hold on to hot pipes, burning their hands?
Aren’t they forgetting Â that so often our sailors risk their lives to saveÂ illegal immigrants – they are hardly going to torture them.
So where has this libel come from? To understand this we have to appreciate that the illegal immigrant pays to become Â an accomplice of the criminal people smugglers.
The red-green rabble Â feigns rage
Here’s how they portray the people who stopped the boats:
The illegal immigrants are all along told what to say by the criminal people smugglers. That’s part of the service which they buy.
Please be sure toÂ sign CANdo’s petition demanding these changes to the Migration Act and government policy be made,Â share this campaign, and visit our “Resources” menu to consider how else you can make your voice effective.
They are paying not only to get here. It is also for adviceÂ how toÂ best to circumvent – to break- Â Australian law.
On the Â instruction ofÂ the criminal people smugglers the illegal immigrants Â hide or destroy their passports. This is to corroborate the falseÂ stories they give to Australian officials.
It is obvious that the libel on our sailors has been concocted by the criminals and the corrupt officials in Indonesia who fearÂ the end of a very lucrative trade.
Evidence is now emerging that some of the illegal immigrants had burned their hands either trying to restart a faulty motor or to disable the vessel so that they could be rescued by the RAN.
Remember that this trade in illegal immigrants was only revived when the Rudd/Gillard government dismantled John Howard’s Pacific solution.
Why the Rudd/Gillard government did this is not clear. It was done by either out of naivety. Or it was a deliberate decision to increase the number of illegal immigrants in Australia, a sort of ”votes for boats”policy.
Don’t forget that they are Â elements Â on the left who want an open slather for illegal immigration.
This illegal trade needs not only the protection of corrupt officials in Indonesia. They also need to ensure that the Indonesian navy does not stop them.
And just remember what happens when the typical illegal immigrant arrives in Â Indonesia by air. At their entry they produce their passports.
They certainly don’t enter as refugees. Presumably they enter as tourists.
But to get into AustraliaÂ to take advantage of the very generous Â social services and the rightÂ to residence the Rudd/Gillard government was offering them, they have to establish that they areÂ refugees.
This is something they blatantly are not.
It is difficult to claim to be a refugee when you areÂ a tourist.
The illegal immigrant is therefore instructed to hide or destroy his or her passport as well as to give Â answers to give to the Australian officials who will determine whether or not the illegal it is in fact a refugee.
There is the clue the ABC journalists seem to have missed.
If the illegal immigrant follows a script provided – properly orally – by the people smugglers, isn’t it likely this preposterous story about our sailors forcing the illegal immigrants to burn their hands was dreamt up by the same Â people smugglers?
It wouldn’t be hard for a journalist to check on this before broadcastingÂ these outrageous allegations against our sailors.
Or is it that some in our media have a political agenda?
Are they determined that turning the boats back must fail?
