From Australia to Norway, the Lies of the Political Class are Identical

African refugees, particularly Sudanese, have serious trouble settling in Australia. (I dare say they weren’t meant to be here in the first place…)

Why did Christine Nixon tell us the opposite of the facts?  (Andrew Bolt)

(Anyone surprised that Nixon is a Har-fart graduate?)

Today, an admission:

SUDANESE and Somali-born Victorians are about five times more likely to commit crimes than the wider community, a trend that must be addressed to prevent Cronulla-style social unrest, police warn.

Sometimes a gun comes in handy:

Young men of Somali ancestry beat up and robbed random people in Lillestrøm [a city northeast of Oslo] on Friday night.–Read more »  (GOV)

Why did Nixon tell us the opposite of the facts?

In 2008, I noted some police and Labor politicians were being, er, not quite frank about African crime rates:

(The) immigration affairs minister, Kevin Andrews, …had been gradually cutting our intake of refugees from Somalia and Sudan for some time, and in October last year explained why.

African refugees, particularly Sudanese, seemed to have serious trouble settling here, he said.

There were understandable reasons for this, of course: “Their level of education, for example, is a lot lower than for any other group of refugees. They’ve been in war-torn conflict for a decade, many of them. Many are young . . . and many have been in refugee camps for decades.”

No wonder their crime rate was high and their respect for our laws low….

Queensland Premier Anna Bligh reached into the slop bucket to smear Andrews for “a pure form of racism”, and said his comments belonged to the “deep south of America in the 1950s”. The Australian Democrats said he was deliberately stirring up hatred and the Howard government was “not fit to govern”.

An African immigrants’ group lodged a complaint with the Human Rights Commissioner, accusing Andrews of racial discrimination, and he was pilloried on the ABC and in almost every daily newspaper.

But perhaps the most crucial rebuke came from (Victorian Chief Commissioner Chrstine) Nixon….

Those Sudanese refugees are actually under-represented in the crime statistics.” Note: under-represented…

It took more than a year – until this week, in fact, – for me to belatedly decide to check Nixon’s figures, that had persuaded me and many others to hit Andrews rather than heed him….

Last year Nixon told us Sudanese refugees, if not all African refugees, were “under-represented in the crime statistics”. In fact, we now know they’re over-represented—by as much as eight times.

Today, an admission:

SUDANESE and Somali-born Victorians are about five times more likely to commit crimes than the wider community, a trend that must be addressed to prevent Cronulla-style social unrest, police warn.

The most common crimes committed by Somali and Sudanese-born Victorians are assault and robbery, illustrating the trend towards increasingly violent robberies by disaffected African youths.

Chrstine Nixon should explain herself. Anna Bligh should apologise. As for Crikey….

(Thanks to reader the evil right.)


Jonathan Green, then editor of Crikey and now an ABC broadcaster, did not hestitate to answer an inconvenient truth with a vile but convenient smear:

Andrew Bolt, perhaps encouraged by the ‘revenge of the nerds’ regime change at Melbourne’s Herald Sun is off the long run this morning, returning to one of his pet themes, the eerie juxtaposition of crime and dark skin… (In fact) you’d have to view the Somali crime rate as a triumph of successful social integration. No better, no worse than the rest of us.

  1. Please note that the problem is ONLY with muslims – non-muslim Africans have NO problems settling in and they contribute to their communities. Muslims do not – even the non-african ones.

  2. kaw I have to disagree, I live in a suburb that has a few Sudanese families and these families frequent Anglican/Baptist Churches in the Dandenong area, these families are self professed Christians.

    Only a week ago there was a major problem in our street with about 15 of these lovely people punching on. I called 000 only to have about 12 police rock up and not do a single thing.

    The fact of the matter these Africans have no place here, i’m so dreading summer coming that’s when the fun really starts 🙁

  3. Thanks for the info Ironside. Assuming that they were not muslims masquerading as Christians (quite possible) then I guess the tribal rivalries last.

    The police know that the judiciary will not support them if they do their jobs – and they stand to loose their jobs for doing something – I think that the police need massive community support if they do their jobs properly. .

  4. Important info – Latest intelligence assements suggest that Iran will have sufficient fissile matierial to build a nuclear weapon by the 1st of October.
    At the same time Egyptian AA missle batteries have been moved into the Sinai.
    I suggest that these are linked, as is the removal of key military personnel by the morsi islamists in Egypt. I would also suggest that the conflict we have warned about is about to start and, as we predicted. it has been started by these muslim shitheads. We now have to do what needs to be done: we cannot skirt around these issues any more.

  5. @Sheik,

    Just to give you an FYI-when I clicked on your link, my computer detected a virus attached to the link.

    Here is the link.

    Fight On,

    PS For us non-Aussies what is Har-fart graduate?

  6. Warning to those living in OZ & the UK

    Be very very wary of the Sudanese children in your local parks and around your children.

    The Muslim Sudanese children are very aggressive bordering on violent whilst ‘playing’ (a word I use sarcastically) in your local park. Watch your children if they are around. If the parent is there expect them to do nothing or offer up any apologies for their brats bad behaviour.

  7. @Sheik,

    Doh! Got it.

    Sealed by the most transparent President ever, or so the self promoting president and his cabal keep telling us.
