This came to me by way of an email.
"I am the Labor Party's Worst Nightmare. I am a White, Conservative, Tax-Paying, God fearing Australian. I am a hard working Australian and I work long hours to earn a living.
I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don't push it on others. I drive Australian-made cars, and I believe in Australian products and buy them whenever I can.
I believe the money I make belongs to me and not some bloody governmental functionary, Labor, Greens or Liberal, that wants to share it with others who don't work!
I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!
I think owning a home doesn't make you a capitalist; it makes you a smart Australian. I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. Get over it!
I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac or any other item, you should do it in English. I believe there should be no other language option.
I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.
My heroes are fellow Australians like Don Bradman, Steve Waugh, Alan Langer, Slim Dusty, Fred Hollows and the Aussie scientists who invented the bionic ear - missed a few I know.
(Note: The late Fred Hollows and Bruce Whiteside were/are New Zealanders!)
I don't hate the rich, but hate the way they always find ways to pay less taxes. I don't pity the poor, I hate the way they are always crying that they are hard done by!!
I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it.
I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!
This is AUSTRALIA ... We like it the way it is and more so the way it was ... so stop trying to change it to look like some other socialist country! If you were born or legally migrated here and don't like it ... you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you. I believe it is time to really clean house, starting with the Lodge, the seat of our biggest problems.
I want to know exactly, where the "Do Gooders" get their money from, and why are they always part of the problem and not the solution? Can I get an AMEN on that one?
I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you're breaking the law, regardless of what race, colour or creed you are, but not just because you happen to be an illegal alien and scream that they are "RACISTS PIGS". And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my driver's license. I think it's good ...
I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause ... Get a job and do your part to support yourself and your family!
I believe that it doesn't take all the intellectuals to raise a child, it takes two parents ...
I believe 'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers think!
I believe the Australian flag should be the only ones allowed to be flown in Australia!
If this makes me a BAD Australian, then yes, I'm a BAD Australian. If you are a BAD Australian too, please forward this to everyone you know ...
We want our country back!
My Country ...
I hope this offends all illegal aliens.
My great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Boer War. My grandfather watched and bled as his friends died in World Wars 1&2. My grandfather watched as his friends & brothers died in the Depression of 32. My father watched as his friends died in Korea. I watched as my friends died in Vietnam, East Timor & Desert Storm. Our sons and daughters watched & bled as their friends died in Afghanistan and Iraq.
None of them died for the Afghanistan and Iraq Flag. Every Australian died for the Australian flag.
At a Victorian high school, foreign students raised a Middle East flag on a school flag pole. Australian students took it down. Guess who was expelled ... the students who took it down.
West Australian high school students were sent home, because they wore T-shirts with the Australian flag printed on them.
Enough is enough.
This message needs to be viewed by every Australian; and every Australian needs to stand up for Australia. We've bent over to appease the Aussie-haters long enough. I'm taking a stand.
I'm standing up because of the hundreds of thousands who died fighting in wars for this country, and for the Australian flag. And shame on anyone who tries to make this a racist message.
AUSTRALIANS, stop giving away Your RIGHTS!
THIS IS OUR COUNTRY!
This statement DOES NOT mean I'm against immigration !
YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY, welcome to come legally:
1. Get a sponsor!
2. Learn the LANGUAGE, as immigrants have in the past!
3. Live by OUR rules! Dress as we Australians Do
4. Get a job!
5. Pay YOUR Taxes!
6. No Social Security until you have earned it and Paid for it!
7. NOW find a place to lay your head!
If you don't want to forward this for fear of offending someone, then YOU'RE PART OF THE PROBLEM!
We've gone so far the other way ... bent over backwards not to offend anyone.
Only AUSTRALIANS seem to care when Australian Citizens are being offended!
WAKE UP AUSTRALIA !!!
If you do not Pass this on, may your fingers cramp!
Made in AUSTRALIA & DAMN PROUD OF IT !!!
Well said, Bob Katter, but you and people of
your principle are being undermined by a not so patriotic loud-mouthed redhead,
who preaches the doctrine of how she was brought up, to respect loyalty, to
respect other peoples views and be a tolerant. None of which she took the
slightest notice of.
I am one of they now say 47% of people in this country that come from abroad. I am more fiercely a New Zealander that I'll ever be an Australia, yet in my 38 years here I have conducted two campaigns. One of those was to do with Foreign Land Ownership, back in 1988 and the other was to give concrete support to an outspoken brunette from Ipswich. A Kiwi, sticking up for her at a time when most 'big bronze Aussie's cowered because they could be targeted as racist, as I had been over the issue of foreigners owning property, that was twisted by the media to read 'counter foreign investment', which was not the case.
There was a time when I respected Pauline Hanson, which is self-evident by the fact that I convened and founded the Pauline Hanson Support Movement. Such was the success of that Movement that she gave two of her people the consent to misappropriate the membership and funds to hurriedly form a One Nation party to exploit the money on offer from the ECQ. As Ettridge informed me "we need money to fight the Federal Election', and the people of Queensland were used to fill the coffers. That set the pattern for the next 20 years.
Today marks the passing of one of New Zealanders finest batsmen the late Martin Crowe. In a moving tribute to her late husband, Lorraine quoted one of the last lines he spoke:
"I have learnt many lessons but the most important was to hold on to the truth, removing all that is untrue and false'.
Why do champions of the people before they are elected morph into politicians when their futures are set in fine pensions?
