Malcolm Turnbull calls out racial and religious discrimination after recent poll on Muslims
The nation’s political leaders have called out racial and religious discrimination as a new poll shows that one third of Australians believe Muslim Australians should be subjected to more scrutiny than other religious groups.
- New poll shows one third of Australians believe Muslim Australians should be subjected to more scrutiny
- PM says Muslim Australians are “integral part of our Australian family”
- Shorten slams divisive comments and “coded statements” by politicians
The study of 1,200 people, undertaken by the Australian National University during the federal election campaign, found 59 per cent believe counter-terrorism policies single out Muslims for surveillance and monitoring. Almost half of those said they were bothered by that.
Would be interesting to know where this survey was taken. In Punchbowl and around Lakemba, could it be?
The survey results coincided with a statement from Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who said Muslim Australians were “an integral part of our Australian family”.
They are not and never will be. There is no “Australian family” with Muslims in it. Allah divided the world in believer and unbeliever, and tells the believers to fight and to terrorise the disbelievers.
Moving a motion on “equal rights” and racial tolerance, Mr Turnbull told the chamber that concerns about radical Islam should not be dismissed, but instead countered with facts.
Its not about race, Turncoat. Its about ideology.
“As leaders our job is to explain the facts, reassure citizens and ensure that everything we do is calculated to keep Australians safe,” he said.
“The most effective weapon against the terrorists is an inclusive nation. An inclusive nation is a safer nation.
Absurd on its face. There is no western nation that is safer because of Muslim infil-traitors.
“It enables our security agencies to better protect us. It enables them to secure the support and assistance of the Muslim communities without which they cannot keep us safe.”
We need more wolves to protect us from the wolves. How utterly absurd.
Mr Turnbull also cited the need for border control, stating that “harmony and security are not mutually exclusive”.
He also urged for tolerance for immigrants, saying some have been “we have not always been as tolerant or understanding as, in retrospect, we ought to have been”.
How low can you go? Comparing past wrongs to rejection of Mohammedan savages is beneath contempt. Aussies are far better than their political clown gallery.
Shorten: We are not being ‘swamped’ by anyone
Opposition Leader Bill Shorten used his address to take aim at divisive comments and “coded statements” by politicians, calling out One Nation Leader Pauline Hanson.
Shorty is wrong on everything. Who takes this creep seriously?
Last month, Senator Hanson used her first speechto claim Australia was at risk of being “swamped by Muslims” and tell those unwilling to adapt to the Australian way of life to “go back to where you came from”.
Mr Shorten took aim at the comments today, telling the chamber “there is no place in Australia for extremism, no matter the party”.
“Inclusive” means to be accepting a different view, Shorty. Not to deny patriots their rights.
“In Australia, we are not being ‘swamped’ by anyone,” he said.
You wouldn’t know unless it bites you in the a$$, Shorty. All you see is voters for Labor. There will be a high price to pay for treason.
“Migrants are not filling our dole queues, or taking our jobs, or clogging up our highways — or doing all three at the same time. Migration is not a cost, or a burden. It is a powerful force for our continuing economic growth and future prosperity.”
Migrants? Sure. Most migrants may not be a cost or a burden. But not Mohammedan migrants. They will of course be a constant drain on our resources. Not to mention the high cost of security.
And then there’s this:
His latter comments also appeared to address a statement made by Immigration Minister Peter Dutton, who in May voiced concerns that an increase in the humanitarian intake would lead to refugees “taking Australian jobs” as well as “[languishing] in unemployment queues”.
Mr Shorten also noted the level of diversity in Parliament, saying that all but five politicians “are exclusively migrants or the descendants of migrants”.
Shorty hits bottom, digs:
Shorty is suggesting that Australians are xenophobic morons who reject foreigners. Nothing could be further from the truth.
