|"Shape up or ship out"|
The squishy left is up
in arms over Bob (go-back-to-where-you-came-from) Carr's comments about an
ethnic shooting in Greenacre.
It started off as a run-of-the-mill ethnic mass shooting in Sydney's
south-western suburbs. Most of Australians don't really
care about such shootings - as long as they can avoid getting caught in the
cross-fire. Nor is it the kind of thing the left makes much a fuss about,
unless it's to pop up to point out that 'disadvantaged' groups are more likely
to be victims of crime and then quickly slither
away before anyone can point out that such groups are also more likely to be
perpetrators of crime.
But Bob Carr had to go and stir up the multicultural hornets
nest by daring to point out the ethnic connection, and said they should
.. obey the law in Australia, or ship out of Australia. We're not going to see,
step-by-step, our civilization dragged back to medieval standards of revenge
Bob (eyes on Canberra) Carr is following the first rule of sound
leadership: work out what most people are thinking, and say it before they do.
Of course the left hopped about looking for a political opportunity
too. Keysar (champion of tolerance) Trad excelled himself by insisting that
there was no connection between the three killings in six separate shootings,
only to be contradicted almost immediately by the NSW Police Minister. Keysar
also claimed that Bob's comments had hurt the Lebanese Community which was
'struggling to recover from the vicious gang rapes in the Bankstown area in
2001'. Anyone listening to Keysar would think that those vicious gang rapes were perpetrated against
the Lebanese Community by outsiders. In fact it was perpetrated by
members of the Lebanese Community against outsiders.
Meanwhile the police are still trying to work out whether to investigate
this as a family feud or part of a ethnic gang war. Apparently it's getting
hard to tell the difference.
