Multiculturalism — celebrating the biggest mass murderer in history

[Contributed article]

The image included below shows the two sides of a souvenir trinket commemorating Mao Zedong, the biggest mass murderer of the 20th century.

MaoTrinket2I purchased this item while I was visiting . . . no, not China, not Hong Kong, . . . but Kogarah, a suburb in Sydney’s south, at the Kogarah Shopping Paradise to be specific(I have kept the docket).

When I told a good mate who lives in the Kogarah area about these Mao souvenirs he went to the same shop the next day only to find they had been sold out. He has informed me that he has seen a number of cars being driven around this area with one of these trinkets hanging from the inside rear-view mirror.

For the record, it estimated that over 70,000,000 people, mainly his fellow Chinese, died as a direct result of Mao Zedong’s policies and actions. This number exceeds the over 61 million murdered by the Soviet Union between 1917 and 1987, and far, far exceeds the 20,946,000 attributed to the Nazis during World War II.

Now, imagine if you will, if there was another shop just up the road from where I bought the Mao trinket, which sold, among other things, German memorabilia from WWII, including, say, portraits of Adolph Hitler, or even just Nazi flags. We all know quite well the almighty cyclone of anger, outrage and controversy that would soon descend upon such as shop. I have no doubt they would be forced to close the shop or at the very least remove the “offending” items.

So how come a shop in Kogarah can get away with selling trinkets of Mao Zedong?

I have no doubt whatsoever that there are two prime reasons, and they are not disconnected:

* The shop selling the Mao trinkets is owned and run by Chinese, and Kogarah is essentially a Chinese suburb, so multiculturalism triumphs over any possible sense of outrage, unless of course you happen to be German and selling German World War II militaria!

* We all know that, according to the “values” of the Marxist-dominated Establishment, communist mass murderers are not to be considered as repugnant as “right-wing”, “fascist” killers. In fact, it is thought of as being very chic to celebrate communist dictators and killers; just look at the roaring trade in Che Guevara accessories!

It should be remembered too that the Liberal Kogarah Council itself does not seem to have any problems with the mass murdering Mao; after all, just a few years ago, as part of the celebrations for the unveiling of a statue of Bruce Lee in Kogarah town square, to honor one of its three sister cities in China, the council library displayed a large poster of Mao, praising the films of Lee, on the wall of its foyer. Oh, I suppose I should mention that the deputy Mayor of Kogarah is Annie Tang, a member of the Chinese-dominated Unity Party.

If all of this has made you a bit hungry, how about some genuine Chinese food at the “Chairman Mao Restaurant”? That restaurant is located in the Sydney suburb of Kensington. Kensington, by the way, has a huge Asian population, due to the University of NSW being located there.

What’s that, you say? You are looking for some special, unique furniture for your new apartment? Well, after we finish our lunch at the Chairman Mao Restaurant, it is just a short drive to the “Mao and More” furniture shop in Surry Hills, where you are sure to find something different.

Of course, it is not far from Surry Hills to Paddy’s Markets in the city, where we could buy a Mao t-shirt and a Che t-shirt as well.

Ah . . . multiculturalism, celebrating the very worst that humanity has on offer!

  1. There’s a Mao’s Dumplings store in Sydney, at the downstairs food-court on Pitt St Mall. Just go down the stairs and turn right, and there it is. (That was about 6 months ago when I was last there). It’s disturbing that so many Chinese seem to be “ends justifies the means” types.

  2. It’s a bit confusing, we keep being told that the majority of newly arrived asylum seekers are moderate. But we’ re not told in just how many are not moderate.
    The moderate one’s by a factor of x= how many are now telling what we can and cannot say.
    Don’t they get it, this is a democratic society and if they can’t come to terms with this then they should peddle their wares elsewhere.

  3. Put another way Mick, the immigration people completely ignore the social problems/impact a potential immigrant will create. The immigration people ONLY look at the economic value of migrants.
    Can he/she assimilate into our communities? Will he/she just grow the already large Asian communities that have developed primarily with the help of both Labor and Coaltion governments? What volume of additional people would be allowed in on the family visa program when an Asian person is accepted?
    Europe is a classic example of how NOT to conduct an immigration program and Australia is following in Europe’s footsteps, in spite of their denial of this. The government repeatedly claim they are doing it differently on a skilled based program but they don’t seem to understand that however they do, the result is the same – our Aussie communities are being changed into Asian communities.
    Having ethnic based communities is hardly a recipe for a united and harmonious country.
    With some communities growing faster than others and the certain fact that once they achieve a certain size, they will make demands for all kinds of things, such as a local mosque or temple, shops change to cater for them, even movies at the cinema change to cater for them. All these things making life very uncomfortable for the Aussie hosts.
    Understood we cannot go back to a white’s only Australia but it would be so wonderful to know that the government of the day is working to protect our communities from being swallowed up by more Asian/Africa/Muslim immigrants.
    One thing is for sure, if I wanted to live in an Asian community, I would move to Asia. I am an Australian and I want to live with other Australians. It’s a law of nature that people want to live with their own kind.
    I am not a racist or exonophobic for wanting this no more than Indians want to live with other Indians and Chinese want to live with Chinese.
    If we are to protect our Aussie culture, our identity, our language, our religion, our history and our way of life, we need to limit the volume of Asians/African and Muslims that are allowed to enter our country. These people are not interested in our culture, etc, they import their own and force it onto the hosts.
    The government seem to live on theory not on reality.

  4. It’s no great deal. Check out Ebay and you’ll find any amount of memorabilia on just about anyone.
    We need to remain focused on immigration and having the people have a say in immigration policies. Focus on who wants to be Australian and do they have the cultural skills to fit in , if not then refuse entry. Politicians are just not up to such an important task.
