Australia

Two Controversial Australians but two different sets of rules.

Two controversial Australians said something controversial. One had a politically incorrect opinion, the other’s words broke the law, were immoral and incited slaughter. Which one do you think was punished?

Here are their faces, have a guess.

Sonia Kruger and Ismail al WahWah each made a controversial statement in a video broadcast.
Sheik Wahwah said, kill the Jews.  Sonia said, don’t let any more Muslims into Australia.

This is what happened …

Want to keep lucrative endorsement deals? Don’t have conservative opinions

The most telling thing about this story is the reason the companies gave for hiring her in the first place.

“Brands choose someone like Sonia Kruger because she doesn’t really stand for anything. She’s quite harmless, she’s nice and she’s non-offensive. ”

“Her whole brand is the inoffensive nice girl and she’s managed to offend a whole lot of people this week. She’s gone off brand and that’s very damaging.”

What is happening to Andrew Bolt is the exact reason why we need ACT to act

David+Seymour+ACT+Party+Conference+H-Fu08aFAynl

I am thrilled that David Seymour  is prepared to discuss immigration with the Whaleoil community. He mentioned that when he has attempted minor changes to immigration he has been attacked by the media and not supported  by us. What is currently happening to courageous Andrew Bolt in Australia is exactly the reason why I want the ACT party to act more strongly on immigration. The reality is that anyone who points out the serious problems within Islamic culture will be attacked, not only by the media but by people within the Muslim community. This cannot be a reason for the National party and the ACT party to do nothing. Instead, it has to be the reason why they make strong immigration policy a priority.

It is clear that when we criticise Islam we risk death. We need politicians like Geert Wilders who are prepared to put their country’s safety first. Like Andrew Bolt, we here at Whaleoil have put ourselves at risk by criticising Islam. I expect the political party I support to be prepared to do the same. Nothing worth having is ever easy. I will support and promote in my personal posts on Whaleoil any political party with strong immigration policies regarding Islam. Copying the Swiss policy regarding citizenship and assimilation would be a good start.

Andrew Bolt says he has moved children out of family home after death threats

Bolt says threats came from Islamic State supporter and follows his newspaper column for Herald Sun which suggested if ‘we criticise Islam … we risk death’

Andrew Bolt says his children have had to be moved out of the family home after receiving death threats from a supporter of Islamic State.

The News Corp columnist made the revelation on Thursday night during an interview with Pauline Hanson on his Sky News Australia program, The Bolt Report.

“I just spent some of my day moving my kids out of my home after yet another death threat from an Islamist supporter of Islamic State,” a visibly upset Bolt told Hanson.

“Two of my colleagues have had to move house completely because of these guys.”

A New Zealander is likely to be a key kingmaker in Australian politics after a tight election result threw its Parliament into turmoil.

Former Taranaki journalist Derryn Hinch is being courted by the two major parties desperate to form a government.

From shock jock, to power player Mr Hinch is the Kiwi now holding one of the keys to Australia’s political future.

“I spent 15 minutes last night on the phone with the Prime Minister of Australia, and on Friday I got a call from Bill Shorten wishing me well, so they’re out there trying,” he says.

When will National get the point? First the UK & now Australia treat immigration seriously

John Key fails to understand the problem, and so do Labour.

A change in government in Australia is unlikely to change the country’s hard-line immigration policy.

One-hundred-and-seventy-four New Zealanders are currently awaiting deportation after their visas were revoked.

Shane Martin — bikie and high-profile immigration deportee — had his visa cancelled in March over alleged links to the Rebels motorcycle club.

“It’s devastating,” said Shane’s brother, Dean Martin in April. “I’ve been over here 26 years and he’s all I have. It’s been him and I, and he’s a good man, no criminal convictions. They’ve got him on association. That’s not good enough.”   Read more »

The Media party think you should care about the Australian elections

The Media party continue their clickbait five-reasons-style headlines, but come up rather short with their five reasons why Kiwis should care about the Australian election.

Polls have Labor slightly ahead in Australia’s fast-approaching July 2 election. So why should Kiwis care? Here are five reasons:

1. An estimated 600,000 New Zealanders live and work in Australia. While they can’t vote in the election, they will be affected by government policies.

2. The future of the political relationship between Australia and New Zealand — there has long been anger among New Zealanders at being treated like second-class citizens in Australia and there are calls for Prime Minister John Key to lobby the Government on behalf of Kiwis. It is estimated New Zealanders contribute $5 billion in tax annually. But they cannot vote or claim welfare. A clamp down on immigration law has also seen Kiwis deported without warning, arrest or criminal convictions.    Read more »

McDelivery! So much for not having fast food places close to schools

14862008717_07ecb9b9c8_b

Don’t worry about fast food outlets near schools – McDonald’s is coming direct to your home.

Just wait for the health troughers to find a reason to oppose this.

Australians who fancy a McDonald’s but can’t be bothered to leave the house can have one sent to their door courtesy of the McDelivery service.

Kiwi fans of Maccas may soon be offered the same luxury.

McDonald’s has registered the “McDelivery” trademark in New Zealand consisting of a golden McDonald’s arch zipping along on a skateboard.   Read more »

Like a scene out of the classic Australian comedy, The Castle, one home owner has turned down all offers to buy her out of her property.

An 82-year-old grandmother from the Sydney suburb of Castle Hill has turned down an AU$26 million (NZ$27 million) offer to sell her home.

Retired schoolteacher Ruth, who requested her surname not be used, was approached by developers looking to transform her 2500-square-metre corner block, Domain.com.au reported.

The Australian National Imams Council confirms that the punishment for homsexuality is death

In the last three days Australians have heard two Australian Imams expressing their views on the gay community. Both Imams hold executive positions within the Australian National Imams Council so we can reasonably expect their views to be representative of Islam rather than their personal opinions, as they have been chosen to speak on behalf of the Muslim community in Australia.

A group called Muslims for Progressive Values in Australia are trying to undo the damage the two Imams and their President, Shady Alsuleiman have done, by claiming that the three men’s view is not the official Islamic view. While I appreciate them wanting to make Islam seem like a progressive religion it clearly isn’t. If it was there would be no need to form a group called Muslims for Progressive Values now would there?

There are ‘ progressive’ christian groups who think abortion is okay but that does not mean that they can legitimately claim that what the Pope and two of his bishops say about abortion is not the official Catholic view. Likewise the progressive Muslim group have no authority to claim that the Australian Imams council is not telling the truth. They should be honest and say that they do not believe that as they are ‘progressive ‘ but yes, that mainstream Islam does believe that homosexuals should be killed.
