Yet more so-called refugees have deposited themselves on our doorstep, unannounced and unwelcome. 16,000 boat people have arrived in Australia, in just this year to date. This is a ridiculous situation, where the teeming millions of Third Worlders see Australia as their big ticket to the easy life. All they have to do is get here. After all, how many do we send back? The refugee business is one big scam just waiting to happen.
The asylum seekers who come here on boats have all passed by, or through, many countries that were safe havens for them. After that, their attempts to move on to Australia make them nothing more than economic migrants, looking for the good life; or, to use the common term, “queue jumpers”. But, still, the government keeps on taking them in.
Whose fault is it? The short answer is: Julia Gillard and the Labor government. Their policies on asylum seekers have been so slack, that the word has spread around the Third World that if you want an easy ticket to the good life, just head on down to Australia and claim refugee status; odds are that you’ll get permanent residency in the Land of the Great Centrelink.
But don’t be fooled that the Liberal-National coalition is any better. They made a great song and dance about sending refugees off to Nauru, but they kept pretty quiet on the fact that they then let about half of them into Australia. Julia Gillard and the Labor Party can’t be trusted – and neither can Tony Abbott and the Liberal Party.
The refugee convention, to which Australia is a signatory, was originally established to assist the thousands of “displaced persons” from Europe, after the Second World War. They learnt English, worked hard, and came from cultures and peoples that could assimilate into the Australian nation and way of life. Taking in the teeming masses of the Third World has not only introduced major problems with ghettoisation, burgeoning welfare numbers, and higher crime rates, but – if continued – it would lead to the demographic swamping of Australia, where our country looks more like a cross between China, India and Afghanistan rather than the Australia most of us grew up in. When our cities are full of streets that look like they belong to Hong Kong, then you know something is drastically wrong, and that Australia is headed for national genocide.
Whether they intend to get here by boat or plane, it doesn’t matter. Australia should not become a Third World colony just to suit the bleeding hearts of the Liberal and Labor parties. The future of our people is far more important than misguided utopianism or the chase for migrant votes and cheap labour.
Any refugees arriving here by boat should be sent back to their last country of departure, or to any country that will take them. They can be sent to countries which are more culturally and ethnically suitable. If we are to have a foreign aid programme, then payments can be linked to a willingness to take in those refugees who leave their safe havens and get here by boat. That seems like a fair swap. We should stop playing the role of doormat to the Third World. We have spent years bending over for Third World immigration; it is high time we straightened up, strengthen our backbone, and declare “Australia for the Australians!”
We must withdraw from the sham that is the United Nations’ refugee convention, stop taking in refugees, and concentrate on our national survival instead. The future of the Australian People is at stake.
