Why the Left is handing Australia to the Third World

Leftists give away our heritage

YOU won’t defend what you don’t value. That’s why so many of the Left now want to sell out Europe and even Australia.

Hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants from the Third World are this year streaming into Europe, and in ever-increasing numbers.

They are demanding to have what people from another culture have created — and are demanding it simply because they want it, too.

After all, their own cultures have failed to produce any such riches, and without reform won’t.

Actually, when I say these people are poor, I mean only relatively. Many are actually rich enough to have seen the West’s wealth on their iPhones, and to have paid thousands of dollars to fly, drive or sail to the gates of Europe.

Now, normal people do not let strangers barge into their homes to take what they fancy, yet the Left in Europe has done just what the Left in Australia did when 50,000 illegal immigrants sailed here under Labor.

It has said yes, let them come and take it.

And Australian journalists, in an astonishing frenzy of sanctimony, demanded we take thousands of them, too, to come help themselves.

None of this makes sense, although the sanitised news reporting may explain some of this delirium.

For instance, the media have focused on a drowned toddler and on desperate families with children to whom you would give your heart, and some cash. But almost completely absent from media reports are the unmistakeable symptoms of the culture clash Europe is now admitting.

I have seen virtually no news report here about the violent riots in three German cities last week between Kurdish and Turkish immigrants, nor about the brawl in a German hostel by around 100 Syrian migrants outraged by the tearing of a Koran by an Afghan.

There has been a virtual blackout on last week’s riot on the Greek island of Lesbos by hundreds of Afghan men. There was a similar blackout on the scores of migrants chanting “f— you” at Budapest when denied a train.

No TV news bulletin showed migrants in Hungary hurling stones, or the well-built migrant at an aid centre turning aggressively to a camera to mime the slashing of a throat. Few reports noted the warning by Spain’s government of infiltration of these columns of migrants by Islamic State terrorists.

Nothing that might make you fear the consequences of this great river of people is given much coverage. Even news in April that Muslims on a boat to Italy murdered Christian passengers was played down.

TV reports last week also said little about the massive trail of rubbish left along the road by this migrant army — rubbish suggesting an uncomfortable truth, that renters do not respect a home as owners do.

Nor is much context given for the rising unease by working-class Europeans at this massive influx of people from the Third World, 72 per cent of them men and overwhelmingly Muslim. That context: European nations from Spain to Sweden are already suffering from the great cultural clash of our time, between Islam and the Christian West.

All have struggled to assimilate large Muslim minorities, and all have battled increasing jihadism.

They have learned that mass immigration from the Middle East is now more like colonisation, as our own Lakemba shows.

No surprise. Why assimilate, when satellite TV beams in programs from home, the internet binds a world-wide ummah, subsidised mosques are around the corner, shopkeepers speak Arabic and cheap travel keeps old ties strong?

A demonstration in Madrid to show solidarity and support for refugees.

All this has been played down by our media class. What should be seen as a threat to be resisted to maintain our Western societies is presented instead as a duty to accept.

Even German Chancellor Angela Merkel, praised by the Left for seeming to welcome an expected 500,000 illegal immigrants this year, admits Germany will be changed, and possibly not for the best.

“What we are experiencing now is something that will occupy and change our country in coming years,” she said.

“We want the change to be positive, and we believe we can accomplish that.”

Or maybe Germany won’t, but then it will be too late.

So how to explain this refusal to defend the West from an invasion of people whose culture often seems at war with all the West represents?

The answer is most obvious with Germany — shame for the past.

Merkel knows using the German army to force unwanted minorities onto trains for shipment will be too shocking a reminder of her country’s Nazi history.

This guilt still drives Germany’s intelligentsia, with Nobel-winning writer Herta Müller groaning: “We have the responsibility given the past.”

But shades of a similar shame runs through the West’s media and political elites, who have long held Europe in contempt for its racist and colonialist legacy, and howled down any suggestion of its civilising influence on the world.

That’s not so in the prouder and more religious nations of Eastern Europe, now the most adamant about not accepting these immigrants.

But the intelligentsia of Western Europe has for decades vilified even their rich Christian heritage, the foundation of their freedoms, as little more than a shameful relic of an oppressive faith ministered by paedophile priests.

And so Christian churches in countries such as Holland are converted into offices and shops, while proud mosques rise in immigrant suburbs.

In Australia it has been the same — or worse.

For nearly 30 years, Midnight Oil’s lyrics have been the soundtrack of our increasing self-loathing:

The time has come

A fact’s a fact

It belongs to them

We’re gonna give it back

Decades of such preaching in schools and universities have succeeded. They have produced a political and media class that trashes the very idea of Western civilisation — those bits it can still understand.

This is a class that resents its own wealth and despises its past, inventing genocides that never occurred.

It is a class that sees Australia as riddled not just with racists but planet-killers, eating evil coal and living on “stolen” land for which some ritual apology must be made at public events to “traditional owners”.

It is a class that sneers at patriotism (Sydney’s Waverley Council once even banned the Australian flag at the Bondi Pavilion, calling it inflammatory) and mocks talk of “Team Australia”.

It is a class which celebrates hyphenated identities — Lebanese-Australian, Chinese-Australian — and attacks Australia Day as “Invasion Day”.

At bottom, this is a class which attacks the traditions that produced our prosperity, and which believes we little deserve what we grubbily have.

No, share our wealth with those more worthy. Invite the Third World to come take what we sinners only stole.

  1. Here’s a psycho who couldn’t wait to confirm what Bolt wrote:

    YOU won’t defend what you don’t value.

    And so it is that with one sentence the whole edifice of Andrew Bolt the “conservative humanist” comes crashing down. It is now beyond doubt that Bolt is a bigot driven by an irrational loathing of the “other”.

    In Bolt’s twisted reality those fleeing Syria are not real refugees running for their lives. They are not escaping the chemical weapons attacks of the Assad regime or the barbarians of Islamic State who burn people alive. No, they are illegal immigrants, economic migrants moving from the culturally inferior Middle East to the culturally superior West. Or as Bolt puts it:

    They are demanding to have what people from another culture have created — and are demanding it simply because they want it, too.

    After all, their own cultures have failed to produce any such riches, and without reform won’t.

    Consider that for a moment. Let the vileness of Bolt’s words sink in and ponder what kind of monster would seek to reduce the fear and suffering of “others” to little more than a land grab. Consider also the lunacy of Bolt’s argument and how it contradicts the claims of the government as to why Australia is joining the US in bombing Syria and Iraq.

    Wading deeper into Bolt’s cesspool, he spews:

    Now, normal people do not let strangers barge into their homes to take what they fancy, yet the Left in Europe has done just what the Left in Australia did when 50,000 illegal immigrants sailed here under Labor.

    What audacity of Bolt to claim to speak on behalf of “normal people”. It may well be the case that Bolt and his billionaire benefactors would stand by and do nothing as strangers are attacked but the Australians I know are better than Bolt. They are decent, considerate, caring people whose natural instinct is to help people in need. “Normal people” don’t spend their days trawling for evidence to justify and rationalise their bigotry.

    Not happy with vilifying and dehumanizing refugees, Bolt dives deeper into the muck, attacking the “self loathing” Leftist “political and media class that trashes the very idea of Western civilisation…”

    It is a class that sees Australia as riddled not just with racists but planet-killers, eating evil coal and living on “stolen” land for which some ritual apology must be made at public events to “traditional owners”…

    And what of Bolt’s class that sees Australia as riddled not just with self hating Leftist do-gooders but gullible dole bludgers taken in by the global warming “hoax” who want to trash the economy and have us all living in caves…?

    …this is a class which attacks the traditions that produced our prosperity, and which believes we little deserve what we grubbily have.

    The truth is Bolt knows nothing of the traditions that produced our prosperity. He thinks only those whom he deems worthy should share in our prosperity. That we are endangering ourselves by inviting “the Third World to come take what we sinners only stole.”

    Bolt’s a sinner, not because he stole his wealth, but because he actively seeks to deny others the opportunities he had. It’s not the Left that is self loathing, it is Bolt. A man who willingly debases himself in the service of his rich masters. The mistake Bolt keeps making is assuming that just because he is a monster then everyone else must be monsters too.

    There are some pretty good rebuttals:

    “In Bolt’s twisted reality those fleeing Syria are not real refugees running for their lives.”

    Some undoubtedly are. However, 72% (UNHCR Numbers) are single 18-35 year old men. Not caravans of families, hungry children tailing along like every other mass exodus in human history –are they fleeing poverty or persecution? If they are fleeing persecution why are they running from Greece? Why are they all going to Germany? Are they being persecuted in all countries except Germany?

    Why is it OK to flee, but evil to fight? The left castigates us for involvement in Iraq and Syria – are we supposed to let Daesh roam unopposed? Shouldn’t they be fought and stop the need for people to flee their homes in the first place?

    “Let the vileness of Bolt’s words sink in…”
    Vile? Really? Uncomfortable truth maybe, but vile? Then please explain why they are fleeing to Germany which has nothing culturally in common with them when they have passed through other Islamic countries and are surrounded by culturally similar countries? The race to Germany doesn’t not look at all economic to you? One man’s naivety is another man’s blindness.

    “Bolt’s argument and how it contradicts the claims…”
    Huh? What contradiction. The stated aim is to stop people fleeing. What is the contradiction you see?

    “What audacity of Bolt to claim to speak on behalf of “normal people”.
    Do you lock your doors when you go out? If so, they YOU are one of the normal people Bolt refers to in this analogy. The point being breaking into your house and helping yourself is a crime I imagine you want the burglar punished for? Why do you think there is a difference between your national entitlements and your household ones? You seem to confuse and conflate the idea of charity (your choice to give) and theft (someone else’s choice to take).

    “Bolt dives deeper into the muck.”
    Please name one thing the modern left is proud of about the west. There is not one facet of our lives they do not want to o change (usually to the opposite) nor one element of our history they have not tried to turn into a shame inducing episode.

    “The truth is Bolt knows nothing of the traditions that produced our prosperity. He thinks only those whom he deems worthy should share in our prosperity. That we are endangering ourselves by inviting “the Third World to come take what we sinners only stole.””

    You prove the argument in this paragraph. You misquote, misunderstand Bolt, project your own hate onto him and then blame him for what you said he said – not what he actually did say.

    “A man who willingly debases himself in the service of his rich masters…” Ah just garden variety Marxism then – ironically the most ignorant, didactic, hate filled ethos to ever be seen in this world is usually adopted by the self-proclaimed “compassionate tolerant and loving” left.

    Allan before abusing someone else’s intentions first seek to understand your own. Marx admitted his number one goal was not to modify the “system” but to use any tool available to smash it so his own ruthless totalitarian dictatorship could rise from the ashes. It ironic that newspeak has infiltrated the academy so deeply that to the average “educated” lefty choice (liberalism, capitalism) has become evil and the entrenched dictatorship of the self-appointed elite (Marxism) has become good.

  2. Do not let the left destroy Australia … terminating these left wing morons is not an unreachable decision and it may well be the necessary onr.

  3. I believe it is an old Chinese curse. ” May You Live In Interesting Times.” I believe we are there, my friends. And the outcome is uncertain. I have applied for a concealed carry permit, and it will be with me at all times.

  4. LIBERALS ARE MASOCHISTS! Always pretending to be able to “control” their fears, BY causing those very same, worst-case scenario problems which cause the pains they fear the most!
