|Violence begets violence|
Communism is a funny phenomenon. One of the apparent benefits of applying
communist doctrine is that it keeps racial violence suppressed. It doesn't stop
racism, it just keeps it in the pressure-cooker, under control. Of course when
the communist government collapses (as they invariably do) the lid explodes off
the pressure cooker, and very bad things happen. Yugoslavia is the classic
example, but East Germany comes to mind too.
But left wing ideologies
correctness) have a similar effect. With a few notable exceptions (like the
One Nation fiasco) The
Left have successfully drowned out the rumblings of concern about
immigration, affirmative action and multiculturalism by
screaming 'racist racist!' at everyone who questions the policies. Not to
mention their hidden agendas.
Today the lid came off the pressure cooker, at least momentarily, and we got a
glimpse of the anger felt by many Australians. 5000 Australians converged on
Cronulla Beach to express support for two livesavers bashed by Middle Eastern
gangs last weekend, and insisting that the beach should be safe for everywhere.
A worthy sentiment.
Unfortunately mobs started to descend on anyone of Middle Eastern appearance,
and then the bashings started.
No sane person can believe that attacking innocent people because of their skin
color will prevent Middle Eastern gangs harassing people on beaches. This is
not self-defense. It is not preemptive self defense. It is simply initiation of
force. This kind of violence will just beget more violence. Against Middle
Easterners, against non-middle Easterners, and ultimately against everyone.
This is a sad day, but maybe there is a positive side - at least it is out in
the open. No-one can claim Australia is free of racial problems, and no
intelligent person can claim that affirmative action or multiculturalism are
But it may be time to make a serious reassessment of our immigration policy.
