Australian Muslim Activist decided to prove that the poll results were wrong

I wrote recently about a poll in Australia where the question was posed, “Do you support banning Muslim Immigration?”. The not surprising result (given what has been happening in Australia) was that 49% Australians said ” Yes.” Like with Brexit a lot of Lefties were not happy with the result of the poll and blamed the result on the fact that only 1,000 people were polled. A second poll was taken but it got exactly the same result.

What’s happened next was fascinating. Mariam Veiszadeh, of “Islamaphobia Register of Australia” infamy, refused to believe the results so commissioned her own poll on Twitter. She proposed exactly the same question and more than 40,000 people have responded to the poll.

Cake has become a political football in America

What is it with cakes in America? In four cases now they have been used for political purposes. In the first case, Christian owners of a bakery refused to make a cake for their regular lesbian customers because it was for a gay wedding. In the next case, Steven Crowder who was upset that the Media were pushing the narrative that only Christians were discriminating against Gays, proved that none of the Muslim-owned bakeries in Dearborn would agree to bake a gay wedding cake either.

Now Walmart has refused to make a cake for a Police Officer’s retirement party saying that the blue line was racist even though last year they happily baked an ISIS flag cake for a customer after first refusing his request for a Confederate flag.

Chuck Netzhammer initially requested a cake decorated with a Confederate battle flag and the words “heritage not hate”, but the store refused.

Mr Netzhammer then placed an order for a cake topped with the banner of the militant group.

Former MP elected in race based seat attacks racism in policy but says nothing about Maori child abuse

There are no greater hypocrites in NZ politics than the Maori party. They always attack everyone and every policy on the basis of race despite the fact they exist only because of a racist policy of Maori-only seats.

Their former MPs are beset by the same hypocrisy.

Maori Party co-founder Dame Tariana Turia has blasted the Government for “institutional racism” in its proposed reform of child protection laws.

She said a proposal to abolish a principle requiring child protection staff to consider the effects of decisions on whanau and iwi, as well as on the child’s well-being, was “a big step backwards”.

“I am going to speak to MPs, and I am going to speak to various iwi around the country to get them to understand what institutional racism really is, which is what we are experiencing yet again,” she said.

Cabinet papers released by Social Development Minister Anne Tolley last weekrevealed that the Government plans to axe a provision that gives priority to placing abused children with foster parents from the same extended family or tribe.   Read more »

A Left Wing view of the problems with multiculturalism in Europe

screen-shot-2016-09-25-at-9-53-06-am

The author of the book The Trojan Horse: A Leftist Critique of Multiculturalism in the West points out that in their eagerness to avoid accusations of racism, left-leaning liberals have abandoned traditionally progressive liberal principles. He points out that the pluralist multiculturalism that the UN has forced onto Sweden, and other European states is just as fixated on race as the racists they condemn. He also points out that multiculturalism ignores the rights of dissenting minorities within the religious and ethnic groups as they view them as one homogenous group.

Mainstream self-styled ‘progressives’ tend to think of multiculturalism and diversity as inherently good things – ideas that only the racist and bigoted would contest. Which is why Swedish sociologist Goran Adamson’s new book, The Trojan Horse: A Leftist Critique of Multiculturalism in the West, is such a welcome intervention. It provides a definitive critique of the ideology of diversity, and it does so from a progressive perspective. In particular, it shows how reason, freedom and individuality – the cornerstones of democracy and civil rights – are being undermined by the ideology of multiculturalism

…he was commissioned by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights to determine the best methods for increasing political participation among immigrant groups in Europe.

…he discovered that the separate-but-equal model of a pluralist, multicultural society was less effective at encouraging political participation among immigrant groups

…Adamson’s report, Immigrants and Political Participation, was quickly dismissed, even by those who commissioned it.

…Adamson argues that the methods and theories of multiculturalists are similar to those of right-wing extremists: both want to force reality to conform to their worldview, rather than respond to it as it really is.

There are other parallels between multiculturalism and old-fashioned racial thinking. For instance, as Adamson points out, multicultural ideology makes a fetish, like the racial theories of yore, of ethnic diversity. What matters is not, as Martin Luther King believed, the content of one’s character, but the colour of one’s skin.

…In this sense, multiculturalism is just as fixated on race as the racist thought of the past.

Unbelievably racist article on NZ MSM website

Below I have reproduced part of a Stuff article with a few minor changes. I substituted ONE WORD for another one and made a few small adjustments including using a different photo.In its original unedited form it upset so many commenters that the website turned off the comments.I am hoping that the minor changes I have made to it will make it clear to Left -wingers how racist and offensive the premise of the article actually is.

Which is New Zealand’s brownist region?

Father’s dead, Mother’s in hospital and the aunt is upset that a White cop took care of the children?

I hate prejudice and racism and the reaction of this child’s aunt to this lovely photo of a police officer holding a baby tells us ‘clearly who the real racist is.  Where are all the Black lives matter activists praising this police officer?

An Open Letter to all New Zealanders from Dame Susan Devoy, Race Relations Commissioner

Guest post

Today we start a campaign that’s about us. In fact, we’re calling it That’s Us because it’s about the kind of people we want to be, as well as the kind of country we want our kids growing up in. That’s Us is our first nationwide, anti-racism campaign that asks Kiwis to start sharing our own stories about racism, intolerance and hatred: but to also share our hopes for the future.

Every year around 400 people make formal complaints to us about racism they’ve faced, they come from all over the country and from a wide range of circumstances. However, we know the overwhelming majority of people never complain or go public when a car drives past and the people in it scream a racist obscenity, when the woman registering students at university smiles at every other student but the brown ones or your son is called racist names as he runs down the rugby field.  These are those “casual” or “quiet” racist encounters that never feel casual or quiet when you and your family are the ones being humiliated. What we embark on today is a platform for people to share these stories with other New Zealanders.

Many people don’t think racial intolerance or racism is a problem: often because they do not experience it themselves.  By raising the voices of those New Zealanders who face racial intolerance in their everyday life: we’re hoping other New Zealanders will take the time to listen. We suspect many of us don’t realise when something we say is unfair or biased: but we would if someone pointed it out to us.  Read more »

The bigotry of low expectations hurts all of us

A propaganda video is being shown inside American high schools. It is an  animated white privilege video. Its purpose is to  encourage “racial discourse”  but it has led to a backlash from  people who  do not like the references to so-called white privilege.

“They are sitting there watching a video that is dividing them up from a racial standpoint. It’s a White guilt kind of video,” Don Blake, whose granddaughter attended the assembly where the video was shown, told told WWBT. “I think somebody should be held accountable for this.”

The key premise of the video is cringeworthy.  It portrays white people, specifically white men as the winner of all things while showing black people to be losers and unable to overcome any obstacles in their way. I don’t understand why the people who created this video can’t see how incredibly racist, belittling and patronising it is.  The video uses the analogy of a running race which is quite ironic considering that when it comes to real running races black people usually dominate.

Kid’s costume of his sports idol wins competition and Social Media outrage

Australian mum paints son in blackface for school costume competition - and wins 76 The mum's photo of her son in blackface sparked outrage. FACEBOOK The mum's photo of her son in blackface sparked outrage. An Australian mother who painted her son's skin black for a school costume competition has caused outrage for a moment she described as a "parenting win". The photo, which was posted on the Facebook wall of mummy-blogger Constance Hall, has prompted widespread condemnation online. In her original post, the mother said her son's school was running a Book Week competition, where kids were required to dress as their favourite book character. AFL player Nic Naitanui hasn't weighed in on the drama. DANIEL CARSON/AFL MEDIA

AFL player Nic Naitanui is the boy in question’s idol and he has said nothing about the outrage that has been fanned predictably by white social justice warriors who have taken offence on his behalf.

I dare you to take the Implicit association test for Racism

I thought it would be interesting to take a racism test. As I am neither white nor black I thought I would make an interesting test subject for what they call an Implicit association test: Black and White race.

I am half Arab ( Lebanese ) and half European ( British and German. ) I look Arab, not European so I assumed that I didn’t see myself as being White. I have relatives with dark skin and very curly dark hair so what this test told me about myself was shocking. I expected that only someone who knew that they were prejudiced would get the highest score, not someone like myself who doesn’t see herself that way at all.

I was shocked by my result. I would be interested to hear what other people think of the test. I have never before taken a test that analyses you with this method. I would have liked it to break down what it was that I did that indicated the label they gave me. Was I too slow to make a decision? Did I make too many mistakes? How did they come to the conclusion they did about me? Read more »
