Run for the Hills- She's BAAAAAACK

Oh dear, Pauline Hanson is threatening a return to politics- this time at the Federal level.

Yes, the woman whose maiden speech in Parliament referred to Australia being "swamped by Asians" who refuse to assimilate is back with a vengeance.

True to her nature, ol' Pauline is back to targetting some of the most vulnerable people in our society. This time she's decided to lay off the Asians (ofcourse since she didn't get elected last time with her ridiculous diatribe about the "yellow peril") and the Aborigines (ofcourse because her ridiculous claim that Aboriginal Australians were getting too much has been quashed by numerous reports about how they are, in fact, the most disadvantaged in Australia).

This time Pauline has decided to go for the jugular of.....

Africans and Muslims

Not one for checking up on her facts, Pauline claims that "diseased" Africans are coming into Australia with all kinds of cooties. As for Muslims, well we all know they will take over Australia by the year 2050 even though we are less than 3% of the population now. Do your maths people. It doesn't take a genius to work out that it's just impossible.

Says Ms Hanson about Africans:
"Why shouldn't Australians know that the people we bring in to this country
are there for the right reasons, and we bring them in for the right
"We're bringing in people from South Africa at the moment, there's a huge
amount coming into Australia, who have diseases, they've got AIDS,"
"They are of no benefit to this country whatsoever, they'll never be able to work."And what my main concern is, is the diseases that they're bringing in and yet no one is saying or doing anything about it." (what disease? Does she mean the disease that turns you into a red-head, foaming at the mouth, ranting racist with the brain capacity of a gnat?)

Says Ms Hanson about Muslims:
"Our governments have bent over backwards to look after them (Muslims) and
their needs, and regardless of what the Australian people think," she
"You can't have schools not sing Christmas carols because it upsets
others, you can't close swimming baths because Muslim women want to swim in
private, that's not Australian." (Newsflash Pauline, the Muslims aren't the ones complaining about Christmas carols and the government aren't the ones who ban them- do your homework)

You could take one of her fantastical rants about Asians or Aboriginal Australians from 2 decades ago and replace the words African and Muslim with Asian and Aboriginal.

Pauline, you little fiery red head you, you've had your chance and the Australian public gave you a big fat PISS OFF! You've been to jail for fraud, you've owned a fish n' chip shop, you even enjoyed a stint as an E (as in ewwww) grade celebrity when you flaunted your tush on Dancing with the Stars (stupid show that!).

So come on, just admit it. You're over. Nobody believes you. The Australian public are much smarter than you make them out to be and you just have no facts to back up your claims.

So do us all a favour and go back to making fish n' chips!

Hmmmm. There is an interesting move towards fascism in the West now. It was to be expected, as a consequence of ultra-liberalist policies and their failures. It doesn't surprise me that this psycho feels time is ripe for a comeback. I presume she's wrong - Australians are not yet angered enough by ultra-liberalism to go to the other extremity.

But Germany, Denmark, England, France...? History tends to repeat itself. And an ideological failure tends to give rise to an opposite ideology. The number of votes Neonazis got in some German provinces (Saxony, especially - around 20%) is a horrifying indicator of things to come.

I have no idea who this woman is, Suspect, but that was a good rant :)

Raccoon, you may be right about Europe and a pending rise in fascism, but I think Austrailia is much more like the US, culturally/politically/socially. Or maybe someplace at the midpoint between the US and Europe. That's my personal view, based on personal experience, anyway. Having met and worked with a fairly large number of aussie troops when I was in the Marines, I came away feeling like the only difference between an aussie and an American is the accent.

I wouldn't be surprised if europe goes crazy right-wing again. They seem to be lost (in more ways than one) and it's been that way for a while.

Saxony, especially

Yes. Well. You have to remember, the continental Saxons were the ones who were too stupid to realize when it was time to get in their long ships and invade Britain :)

Not much can be expected of them.

um...actually, most governments do screen incoming immigrants (although i think not refugees) for serious illnesses. australia is one of them. also, i do think the world is getting way too pc. tolerance really should not extend to taking away previously enjoyed conveniences.
