Multiculturalism – the great delusion

Of course, multiculturalism is a delusion for those who have swallowed the Marxist rhetoric. For the unrelenting and remorseless Marxists, multiculturalism is perhaps their heaviest weapon in their campaign to corrupt Western Civilization.

Not a week ago, The Netherlands was set ablaze by Eritrean political factions (migrants) battling each other over political problems in Eritrea.

What more is to be said about migration from Islamic countries? In every nation of the West where Muslim migrants have managed to get a foothold you have crime and violence and the refusal to integrate. Now we have weekly demonstrations of Muslims agitating on behalf of Hamas and shouting antisemitic slogans.

The Muslims are not to blame. They are just bringing their incompatible culture with them. No, it’s the woke ideologues in our governments, education and civil service that are treacherously responsible.

Prophet and Loss

Bryan Wimborne, Quadrant 21st February 2024

Ideas can be dangerous. Among the most dangerous are those that are utopian and therefore bear little or no relevance to the real world. In recent years, a popular but ill-considered utopian idea has been multiculturalism. This ideology appeals to impractical idealists and was readily adopted by the Left, which saw it as the means to undermine Western values. Multiculturalism dates from the 1963 Canadian Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, but did not become that country’s official policy until 1971. As more immigrants moved to English-speaking countries in the West, multiculturalism travelled with them. In Australia it was adopted as official policy in 1973.

The success of post-war migration to Australia should not blind us to the failings of multiculturalism. When most new settlers originated in the Western world or possessed Western values, multiculturalism appeared to work. However, it was a mistake of epic proportions to import settlers whose cultures were not compatible with those of Australia. Those who promote multiculturalism often stress the diversity it adds to the community. That is true, but there is no reason to believe that diversity is beneficial. It is a woke idea unsupported by facts. There is a fine line between diversity and disunity, one that can be erased only through integration and assimilation.

When widely differing cultures come into contact, they inevitably clash. This historical reality has been ignored by many governments who hastily embraced the theory of multiculturalism without giving thought to the dangers it poses for national cohesion.

Concerns about the effectiveness of multicultural policies to integrate migrants were eventually expressed by several world leaders. David Cameron, in his first speech as Britain’s prime minister, spoke of radicalisation and the causes of terrorism. He criticised state multiculturalism and later signalled a tougher stance on groups promoting Islamist extremism.  Former French president Nicolas Sarkozy declared multiculturalism a failed concept and called for a renewed focus on France’s identity. Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel said the so-called multicultural concept—where people would “live side-by-side happily”—did not work. The governments of Netherlands and Denmark, recognising multiculturalism’s disruptive effects on their communities, returned to an official policy of monoculture.

In Australia, as ethnic social unrest resulting from multiculturalism increases, it might be only a matter of time before monoculturalism is introduced to unify the nation.

Only white people are racist

Far and away the most multicultural countries in the world are the European countries and those lands settled by white people, like Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the US. Not too long ago, those countries were predominantly white by a large margin.

In the mid-1960s, the Marxist-left launched a campaign to change the migration laws to allow the entry of non-white peoples into these predominantly white countries. A multicultural society would enrich the country, they said.

At the same time, nobody launched a similar campaign to enrich Asian and African countries by allowing unimpeded migration of white people. After all, if the standard applied to white countries, why not Asian and African? In fact, the opposite was the rule. Many African and Asian countries kicked out white people.

But that was not the rule for the Marxists. Their rule was to smash white, male, capitalist society. You see, by definition capitalist countries are white and masculine.

The Marxists have achieved a stunning victory. Those formerly white countries are now on the point of dropping below the 50 percent level of white people.

They have taken in people from the poorest, crime-ridden, undemocratic, violent countries. And many have brought their troubles with them.

White countries have given non-white people the opportunity for the best education, the most freedom, and the most stable government.

Are they happy with the privileges they would never have had in the countries they still give their allegiance to? No, they are now discovering there are too many white people around them, who make them feel inferior. The presence of white people is suffocating.

The passing of a white majority can’t be too soon. Indeed, one looks forward to the time when white people are made to suffer for what whiteness has done.

Woolworths – Treachery Betrayal

In early January 2024, the news broke that the Woolworths Group had got rid of their Australia Day merchandise (flags, caps, towels, and so on). They would no longer sell anything to do with Australia Day. The decision was clearly ideological. Woolworths management had joined the woke elites who supported the Aboriginal activists. This was in the face of the crushing defeat the activists suffered in the referendum to authorize what in reality was a separate Aboriginal state. Outrage thundered across Australia. Woolworths remained unrepentant. In this video, I show on the basis of the information on Woolworths’ corporate website, that the Woolworths’ Group is fully committed to the wokish agenda. The outrage of the ordinary Australian was justified.

TRANSCRIPT

Woolworth’s decision to remove Australia Day merchandise from its shelves hit like a bombshell across Australia.

What could they have been thinking, people were asking? Loud contempt and savage criticism have been poured on the corporate sector for cowardly turning their backs on ordinary people and falling in behind the wokist and Marxist elites who are never finished reading us their lessons and never finished scheming and manipulating the political process.

One would think that prudence would have dictated more subtle political action. But, no, in a sickening act of betrayal, they resorted to a business nulla nulla to bash us into submitting to their wokist political agenda. Indeed, Woolworths’ competitor, Coles, seems to have decided to keep Australia Day stock and escaped the lashing. Woolworths’ cussedness is an indication of their ideological rigidity. The people must obey, and if they resist, they must be made to obey.

Woolworths CEO Brad Banducci fronted the media on behalf of what’s called the Woolworths Group Executive Committee to defend the corporation’s action.

He squirmed and wriggled as he struggled to parry the criticism with the excuse that it was an economic decision. Australia Day merchandise did not sell. No sense in having stock that doesn’t sell. That’s pitiable nonsense, of course. It’s a fact that Australians buy Australia Day merchandise throughout the year, and not only around Australia Day. On simple business principles, a business would stock merchandise for which there was a demand. Brad’s explanation did not wash. And people could smell the wokist politics a mile off.

The search for my ancestors

It is now almost eighteen months since my son, Roger, and I completed our trip up through northwestern New South Wales to find where our colonial Wilson and Jones Ancestors lived and worked. James Joseph Wilson arrived in Sydney in 1827 and Michael Jones in 1829. Both were convicts. Their free settler wives, Jane and Elizabeth Harris, came from a small village in Wiltshire.

It was the trip of a lifetime, a trip that I’m probably too old to do again.

Of course, we were a couple of rank amateurs as far as making videos went. And viewing the results no television station will be running after us. However, despite our amateur efforts we are more than happy with the results. We achieved what we set out to do. We set out to trace our family history, not only for ourselves, but for Australians with similar family background.

The experiences of our family and like-families were, and are, an important part of Australia’s history. Indeed, they were the starting point of the Australian nation. Without them, there would be no Australian nation. It’s a part of Australia’s history that an elite class is now desperate to erase.

I hope the six episodes of our discoveries will spur other Australians to go and find themselves and Australia in a similar expedition. You won’t regret it.

Recommended books

Socially and politically oriented Youtube channels often interview authors of books that have captured the reading public’s attention.

The books below attracted my attention because they give powerful arguments and evidence against the Woke class’s condemnation of Western Civilization.

The final two by Timothy Gordon and his wife, Stephanie, are so ‘out there’ on the fringes for most conservatives that they will not consider them. The books, however, restate age-old beliefs about men’s natural leadership and women’s role as organizer of the domestic sphere.

I intend to add to the list whenever I come across book of similar interest.

The Case for Patriarchy – Timothy Gordon

Ask Your Husband: A Wife’s Guide to True Femininity, Mrs. Timothy. J. Gordon

War with Russia is coming – unless action is taken

As I have confessed, Putin fooled me as he has fooled and still fools many conservatives. The key aspect about Putin is that you cannot trust a word that comes out of his mouth. Everything he says is to manipulate the audience he is addressing. He controls the Russian population by strictly supervising the media, telling the Russian people a pack of lies, blocking foreign media, and jailing or killing those defying his dictates.

For the Western audience, he has a stock of conservative ideas to shower on them. He focuses on the Christian groups with sentiments about family, religion, and history. Indeed, I once thought he was essentially a Burkean conservative because of his valuing Russian history and its lessons. An appalling mistake that now embarrasses me.

In reality, Putin is a vicious murdering type of Russian Czar who is fixated on rebuilding the Russian empire. Nothing stands in his way. He is in a constant state of recalculating what he says to suit the time, place and audience. That’s the reason he so often contradicts himself – seemingly contradicts himself. He stays unerringly on the line.

If the West does not prepare itself, it might find Putin and his army in its backyard. The interview below with General Richard Shirreff shows just what’s at stake. Shirreff talks about rebuilding the army of the NATO countries. What he does not talk about are the emasculating ideologies that are weakening the West. These ideologies have to be eliminated. The reality is that men fight wars.

Proof Islam is irreformable

About nine minutes into this video about the crazy left, we are confronted with a insufferable Gen Zed Muslim girl declaring her joy over the Islamic animals who engaged in the slaughter of innocent defenceless people, women and children, on 7 Oct. She’s proud of the ‘boys’ and would like them to ‘do it again, and again, and again, and again …’

This fanatical Muslim girl is the child of Muslim immigrants. She was born in England. The lesson is about multiculturalism, about the immigration of incompatible cultures to the West. Multiculturalism has been a failure. This girl is another indication of how uncontrolled immigration has degraded the West.

They have turned against us

Caving into the violence of the far-left ‘Aboriginal’ activists

Far-left ‘Aboriginal’ activists have continued their program of intimidation and demoralization – classic Marxist praxis. They went on a raid to destroy monuments to Australia’s colonial period which was a preface to the nation as we know it.

The statue of Captain Cook at St Kilda, the monument in Fitzroy Gardens, and the statue of Queen Victoria near the CBD were victims of the raid.

The media, including the ABC in the report below, are calling it the work of ‘vandals’ when they know very well who the perpetrators are. Indeed, a question remains how much collusion there is between the Marxists, the media (especially the ABC), and local councils who the Marxists have hijacked.

The activist thugs left various messages behind their work of intimidation: ‘Cook the colony’, ‘shame’, ‘the colony will fall’. Those messages are a continuing declaration of war against the Australian nation.

Do you think Australia’s authorities will carry the war up to those traitors and subversives? Not on your life. Some are too gutless to act; others support the treachery and subversion. They support what amounts to a political, land and cultural coup.

Far-left Jacinta Allan, Daniel-Andrews-clone and premier of Australia’s first genuine Marxist government, declared the statue of Captain Cook would be restored when the news first broke. Now, she says she is leaving it to the councils. We know what the relevant councils will do, don’t we?

It has been reported that a ‘Yarra city council officer has recommended the memorial be permanently removed due to the serious, irreparable damage and because it has “little or no significance” to the park.’ Exactly. This is the way the war will continue.

Is there nobody to defend the Australian people?

Captain Cook monument toppled in Edinburgh Gardens in Melbourne’s north, days after vandalism spree

ABC Sun 28 Jan 2024

Police are investigating after a colonial monument in Melbourne’s north was targeted by vandals, following a string of similar incidents around the city in the lead up to January 26.

A stone monument to Captain Cook at the entrance to Edinburgh Gardens in Fitzroy North was toppled and spray-painted with the words, “cook the colony”.

The monument had been the target of several acts of vandalism in recent years, with one incident in 2020 seeing the monument crossed out with white paint, with the word “shame” painted across it.

Following that incident, former Yarra Mayor Misha Coleman said that despite the continued vandalisation, there were no plans to remove the monument.

Investigations ongoing, police said

The latest incident comes after two other statues around Melbourne were the target of vandalism earlier in the week.

A statue of Queen Victoria was splashed with red paint near Melbourne’s CBD, while a statue of Captain Cook was sawn off at the ankles, toppled, and painted with the phrase, “The colony will fall”.

The incidents are presumed to be in protest against the commemoration of colonial figures in public spaces.

Police said in a statement that investigations into whether the three incidents were connected was ongoing.

“The plaque has been pushed over and sprayed with red paint,” the statement read.

“It is yet to be established when the damage took place, and the investigation is ongoing.”

Police are urging anyone with information about any of the incidents to contact Crime Stoppers.
