“Criminals” and “bastards”: Liberal Party members call for blanket immigration ban

A Sydney division of the Liberal Party will debate whether Australia should end all immigration and ban all refugees, after an incendiary motion was put forward calling migrants “criminals” and “bastards”.

Mustards threaten Australians with the final solution

The president of the Carlingford branch, George Popowski, will use a party conference on Thursday to call on the Turnbull government to halt “all immigration and refugee intakes” until an investigation can establish the “risks and benefits” for Australia.

Pauline Hanson’s anti-Muslim manifesto

The Greens walk out during the One Nation leader’s maiden senate speech as she calls for the burqa to be banned, Muslim immigration to be stopped and the construction of mosques to be halted.
In a rambling preamble attached to the motion, Mr Popowski accused migrants of a litany of sins including forging documents, faking degrees, rorting the visa system, slacking on welfare and also taking jobs from locals.

“The last thing we need is foreign workers. Get the bastards who are here, off their back-sides! 80% of all new arrivals are on benefits – some for over 10 years!” he wrote. “Simple: compulsory work for the dole – plus, prison for all the crooked quacks who’ve signed them up for the DSP!”

The motion calls for all immigration to Australia to be halted pending an investigation.

Mr Popowski, a hard-right factional ally of colourful Parramatta division secretary Charles Camenzuli, also invoked the anti-immigrant rhetoric of US presidential candidate Donald Trump.

“Who wants criminals? As THE Donald said: ‘We don’t know who these people are!’ And we don’t! Today, when they can forge $100 notes, any documents can be bought,” he wrote. “Also, all the jihadists here! Surely, this crap must stop! Shut the door NOW! Do we NEED these people????

Mr Popowski runs a fan and blower manufacturing business, Lisbon Engineering, based in St Mary’s in Sydney’s west. He told Fairfax Media his motion represented “what everybody’s thinking” but declined to elaborate for fear of breaking party rules about speaking to journalists.

An Essential Research poll released in September found 49 per cent of Australians support a ban on Muslim immigration, including 60 per cent of Coalition voters, 40 per cent of Labor voters and 34 per cent of Greens voters.

Parramatta MP Geoff Lee would not be drawn on the motion.

The most common reasons for wanting a ban were fears over terrorism, and a belief that Muslim migrants do not integrate into society nor share Australian values. The poll was first conducted in early August and then repeated to ensure it was not a rogue.

Australia accepted 168,183 migrants in 2014-15, as well as 13,756 refugees under the country’s special humanitarian assistance program.

The Parramatta division is a hotbed for the Liberal Party’s hard-right rump, and Mr Camenzuli’s activities have regularly made headlines. In August, he was involved in a scuffle at the Coolibah Hotel with Dundas branch president John Chedid, who had defected to the state’s dominant moderate faction.

Mr Camenzuli almost won the federal seat of Parramatta in 2010 but lost to Labor’s Julie Owens. A prominent local Liberal Party member described him as from the “very, very hard-right and if you don’t see it his way he will go out of his way to bring you down”. Mr Camenzuli declined to comment.

The sitting state MP for Parramatta, Geoff Lee, is of Chinese descent. He told Fairfax Media he had seen the motion but would not discuss it publicly.

“We shouldn’t stifle debate. Let everybody have their voice,” he said. “The Liberal Party is a broad church. Rest assured there would not be a bigger advocate for multiculturalism than myself.”

Mr Lee said he did not know whether the motion would ultimately be successful. “It depends on who turns up for the meeting I guess,” he said.

The conference, to be attended by up to 400 division members, will be held on Thursday night at the Parramatta RSL.

  1. islam AND islams ARE THE PROBLEM
    along with the islam and the islam assisting Australian politicians,
    political appointees and local councillors …

    The Federal Criminal List … eg
    1. The Prime Minister’s Master(s) (NOT his constituents).
    2. The Prime Minister himself.
    3. The Opposition Leader’s Master(s)
    (NOT his constituents).
    4. The Opposition Leader himself
    and so on down the Federal political heirerarchy …

    The State Criminal List … eg
    1. The Queensland Premier’s Master(s) (this is NOT her constituents).
    2a The Queensland Premier (who has publicly stated on National Television that she was going after Pauline Hanson for daring to state the obvious about islam and its islams)
    2b. VIC Premier Daniel Andrews who sat down with religious community leaders ahead of anti-mosque protests, and described as “hateful” the campaign against the mosque and pledging to stand with local Muslims.
    3a. The judge(s) of Victoria’s high court who gave Bendigo mosque the final go-ahead
    3b. Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal president Greg Garde who said arguments against the mosque had been unclear.
    and so on down the State political heirerarchy …

    The Local Council Criminal List (councillors are usually tinged) … eg
    1. The councillors of Bendigo who approved the Mosque application.
    2. The councillors of every local authority who have approved the building of a mosque in their area.
    3. Every Real Estate Agency owner/employee who has EVER conducted to completion any business with an islam.
    and so on down the Local Council political heirerarchy …

    just a (Very) FEW in the public domain examples and this is just the non-islam politicians, political appointees, local councillors and the otherwise greedy.

    (so many) Criminal … each and every one !!!
    do you understand this … jail awaits!!!
    do you understand this … goal awaits !!!
    do you understand this … incarceration awaits !!!

  2. (for the benefit of the VRC) Emirates History …
    On 25th October 1985, Emirates flew its first routes out of Dubai with just two aircraft—a leased Boeing 737 and an Airbus 300 B4. Then as now, our goal was quality, not quantity, and in the years since taking those first small steps onto the regional travel scene, Emirates has evolved into a globally influential travel and tourism conglomerate known the world over for our commitment to the highest standards of quality in every aspect of our business.

    Dubai …
    the most populous city in (the islam majority) United Arab Emirates (UAE)

    (the islam majority) United Arab Emirates
    A Member state of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)
    Joined in 1971
    The OIC Block Control the United Nations (UN)
    and the Flying Camel !!!
