Immigration Minister loses to APP activists

Report from Nick Folkes

Time and time again Chris Bowen has proven to be a disappointment to the Australian public due to his utter incompetence, vacuous positions and constant charades. This is the same minister who put together FuelWatch and GroceryChoice with dethroned Kevin Rudd. Unfortunately for the people of Australia, Bowen now oversees the portfolio of Immigration and Citizenship with dire consequences.

While listening to 2GB radio on Friday 13th May a couple of irate Fairfield residents alerted listeners to Chris Bowen’s Sunday BBQ at South-Western Regional Park. The 2GB callers complained about Chris Bowen and his poor performance handling the asylum shopper explosion that has seen Australia accept record numbers of illegal boatpeople due to a lack of legislation and enforcement. Chris would have to be one of the clumsiest frontbenchers known to the public, with a sad record to prove his uselessness. In all honestly, Chris Bowen is as useless as an ashtray on a motorbike.

In the previous weeks, Chris Bowen’s office had circulated a flyer promoting the Sunday BBQ to Fairfield residents. The flyer encouraged residents in the local area to come along, ask questions and dine on taxpayer-funded sausage sandwiches.

After hearing about the feel-good lefty sausage fest over the radio, I couldn’t resist an opportunity to personally meet Bowen in the park and ask some tough questions. The “genius” multicultural proponent was in our sights. A group of Protectionist members and supporters agreed to come along and confront Bowen in the park.

Bowen and his staffers were clearly rattled when they saw us approach and make the long march to the hotplates. One of his staffers in charge of the BBQ was shaking and visibly upset that their warm and fuzzy halal certified BBQ was about to go mainstream.

Listening to Bowen from a short distance we could ascertain that the invited McMahon electors weren’t asking Bowen any serious questions on the asylum seeker crisis which has been destroying Australia’s once-envied border protection. I introduced myself to Bowen and shook his hand. I asked if it was fine to ask some questions, to which he agreed.

However, it was soon abundantly clear that Bowen was out of his depth dealing with this most important portfolio, as his answers dictated a man in distress. As soon as we started asking serious questions, many of the other attendees followed our example. Heated, yet amicable, conversation continued for 30 minutes until Chris decided he couldn’t bear any more humiliation at the hands of grassroots political activists. He rudely interrupted and said, “You have had your fun, now please leave me alone”.

We left Chris in a cloud of burnt sausages and travelled down to the park bridge. Chris would have to cross the bridge to gain access to his car so we decided to set up our protest on the bridge and make sure Bowen the Troll didn’t slip under the bridge. We held our placards and Aussie flags proudly to give him one more final hurrah. We lined the bridge and gave him a salute to remember. Chris was again undoubtedly one sorry and confused individual as he raced past us over the bridge to his car and escaped from the clutches of realism and the viewpoints of everyday Australians.

There is no doubt Bowen has his greasy fingers all over the recently announced half-baked Malaysian solution. This is yet another example of a government making policy on the run. It is clear Bowen and Gillard are at the helm of a sinking ship with no rudder. The recalcitrant Malaysians must be rubbing their hands in glee at such a preferential deal whereby Australia deports 800 illegal boatpeople and accepts 4,000 asylum shoppers in return. Most of the 4,000 asylum shoppers who will be resettled in Australia (“the land of the big Centrelink hand-outs”) are Rohingya Burmese, an ethnic Muslim minority from Burma and Bangladesh. Again, the hapless Australian taxpayer will foot a bill in excess of $330 million. What a spectacular waste of our money.

Gillard believes this is the first step in creating a regional solution to the issue. This is the same galoot who wouldn’t reopen the Nauru Island detention facility because Nauru isn’t a signatory to the UN refugee convention. Gillard and Bowen have now opened the door to Malaysia and possibly Thailand, both whom are not signatories to the UN convention, to possible offshore processing. The boat people keep arriving, yet Bowen could not say where the illegal asylum shoppers would be sent, because the Labor-Green coalition government has signed no bilateral arrangement with Malaysia, PNG, East Timor or anywhere else. This is a panicked announcement from a government in despair.

It is not very often you get the French, Germans and British to agree, but they did a few months ago by declaring multiculturalism a failure. Bowen has decided to ignore the warnings coming out of the Europe in regard to the complete failure of a liberal utopian fairytale called multiculturalism. Bowen believes Australian multiculturalism is different to European multiculturalism, but failed to elaborate.

Bowen said, “multiculturalism is about mutual respect”. Mutual respect has nothing to do with multicultural policy. State-sanctioned multiculturalism not only divides society, but it also deceives us when as it places Third World and barbaric cultures on equal par with our better developed Australia culture, which is derived from Western civilisation. A quote attributed to Albert Einstein is “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”. I don’t think any sane citizen could challenge that definition, except for the useful idiot Bowen.

Last Australia Day, Bowen said “The Australian flag should not be changed as the vast majority of Australians support the current design”. Well, the vast majority of Australians also support tougher border protection policies through legislation.

The forgotten people of Australia deserve better than a Minister who lives in a perpetual world of spin, mismanagement and deceit.

  2. Alan Webb says

    Well done.

    If only this sort of close exchange could be done more often.

    Only then will the message finally get to the power brokers that all is not warm and fuzzy out in the real world..

    One can only surmise how much the Islamist's pay into the political slush funds of the labor party.

    we have had PC shoved at us, some loud mouth from UN tell us what to do in OUR country and politicans who cant see the present threat with in our borders AND they are still letting more in. So whats to happen a revolution or does someone spit the dummy and shoot a pollie because a lot of us out here wont feel sorry for them, well just a little maybe but only for the pollies family. But hey thems the risk for those who promise and dont honour their own words. We have these radical islamic persons mouthing off against how their evil book says they will take over Australia (and the world). But nothing is done at all to curb them, just a silly idea of shoving 800 away and sucking 4000 of them in to our soon to be non-peaceful country. Sense has to start soon

  5. Well done Nicko,

    Good article,

    You stuck it to this traitor, useful idiot & first class buffoon.

    Another win for the APP.

    He's as stupid as a refugee activist and as weak as piss, spinless and cowardly.

    And that was why he was chosen for the position. If one has a hidden agenda to destroy a country from within, it will ensure they have the right 'footsoldiers' to do it. The white treasoners from the Marxist far left and media are their insiders and the immigrants are their footstodiers. The Marxist's all seem to think that when the others take over, their postiions and families will be spared, they won't. It is written into the Koran that the infidel who even betrays his own race for Islam is not to be spared in the end.

    I feel the Islamic invasion of Western Australia is well on its way, there are more and more every month, even the Burmese at work were talking about it this morning during somko and theyve been here for decades. They say the Africans are very voilent towards them too.

    This is a clear example of the so-called representatives of the people who have been complicit in devastating this once great nation.

    Not only have we suffered under the hands of incompetent morons as above but also betrayed by lies and deceit by a procession of complicit Governments of both colours.This treachery started with the signing of the Lima agreement by Gough Whitlam. A litany of UN agreements and Declarations signed since and ongoing today has the Gillard government dancing to the tune of the "Hidden Agenda" laid down by the United Nations!

    Recent Comments by a visiting UN Commissioner on Refugees making that very clear the UN is governing this country our elected Government a Sham,a Three Ringed Circus the UN the Ringmaster!

    Signed Cully

    The Muslims in Australia are perhaps the biggest threat our communities and country face but not far behind are the Indians and Sri Lankans who are poring into our communities and changing them forever.

    Individually these people can be nice and possibly an economic asset to Australia – but at what cost to ethnic harmony.

    These people have hijacked communities all over the world, most noticably in the UK where huge towns and cities have been lost.

    When I think how we fought and died to keep the invading German armies out of our Island 66 years ago only tio find the left wingers have just handed our island home over to India and Pakistan.

    I just want to cry when I see these people setting up home in our street – it is just history repeating itself all over again.

  9. Mr Aussie Digger says

    excellent post Nick, shame you didn't video it, or did you? It would be great to get some footage of him bungling his own portfolio. give it to aca or other news media not stuck up the lefts backside, to demonstrate to all of Australia how badly he has handled his time in office, which hopefuly will end at the next election. keep up the good work mate.
