And, one by one, Australians will take the cue and cast their votes elsewhere because the enlightened West made its choice centuries ago. Like our forebears, we choose the light…” Sharia, a dark ages death sentence
An extract from today’s column by Jennifer Oriel in The Australian. She references the SBS FU2Racism programming. I noticed this piece of smart arse, aren’t we hip, aren’t we clever, promotion for the program last week at Belrose Supa Centre. Five will get you ten there’ll be promotion of it at school assemblies followed by classroom repeats.
“… Australians are tired of being called racist for defending our most essential values while the government throws public money at an activist media that undermines them. We are forced to pay for the ABC to ridicule patriots, smear conservatives and spin secure border policy as xenophobic.
How much anti-Australian propaganda will we be forced to endure during SBS’s #FU2Racism programming next week? Perhaps SBS will surprise us by using taxpayer funds to discuss the benefits of Enlightenment thought and the constitutional values that helped Australia resist 20th-century totalitarianism. Perhaps SBS has recruited leading classical liberals and conservatives to educate the nation about the greatness of Western civilisation, the Christian scriptural origins of the secular state, the hard-won legacy of the Reformation and the Enlightenment in a celebration of the free world. Perhaps it will contrast Australia’s egalitarian laws on race, ethnicity, gender and belief to those of Islamist and communist states. Perhaps it will conclude that the best antidote to racism is the Australian nation and citizens educated in the Western tradition.
And if SBS runs the usual anti-Western line, perhaps Communications Minister Mitch Fifield will propose new standards for publicly funded broadcasters to ensure greater political diversity in recruitment and promotion.
I suspect none of it will happen. Instead, the Liberals will continue to fund Islamic activism with our money. Labor will join the Greens to fight against better border security and immigration vetting. Fifield will stay silent as public broadcasters take apart Australia’s constitutional values on the public purse.
