Muslims fear backlash

On January 28, 2015, in Commentary, by natalt

Like “Youths” as a euphemism for rioters who aren’t white, or “Aspiring Rapper who was just turning their life around” as euphemism for an urban gangster criminal who became a victim of their own lifestyle, “Muslims fear backlash” is morphing into a phrase designed to cover up truth, than inform.  This is more tiring than […]

On the Sydney Siege : Call for a united front

On December 17, 2014, in Commentary, by natalt

by Jack Reilly James Kirkpatrick of the conservative US site VDare wryly predicted (in an article, ‘”Sheik” Man Monis Behind the Siege in Sydney’, 15/12/2014) that news accounts of the siege and the murders would be followed by headlines such as ‘Muslim Community Fears Backlash’. Lo and behold, he was right: right on cue, the […]

Gough Whitlams Legacy

On November 21, 2014, in Commentary, by mkennedy

Whitlam shaped modern Australia, his tenure being the proverbial exclamation mark which separates that Australia we know today (and for many of us, the ONLY Australia we’ve experienced), from Australia of old.  Was he a reformer, propelling Australia forward, or a dangerous, irresponsible force, or both?  His short government was undoubtedly a bolt of lightning, […]

The 2014 budget is a waste of a prime opportunity

On October 12, 2014, in Commentary, by mkennedy

Australia is in both a rather fortunate and unfortunate position.  We have a reasonable financial position when compared to the rest of the word due to escaping the GFC and having experienced a mining boom.  We are in a somewhat unfortunate position that despite this good fortune, the cost of living has sky rocketed, our […]

Political Correctness was never about describing the world.

On September 6, 2014, in Commentary, by mkennedy

The belief systems we have, facts we hold, our adopted theories and models serve us because they describe the world as it is.  Our understanding of electromagnetism is based on what is, observation and an attempt to understand reality as it is to us.  Because our model is based on reality, we can engineer electronic […]

Judging Groups

On September 4, 2014, in Commentary, by mkennedy

Political Correctness requires us to overlook the most extreme, reactionary elements of a group and judge that group (whether religious, political or what have you) by the best representatives.  Of course, we should only do this for selected groups called “minorities” and not for others, such as identity groups we belong to.  So we know […]

Is it racist to notice?

On September 2, 2014, in Commentary, by mkennedy

The standard dictionary definition of racism is, “the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.” Which leads us to a conundrum.  As anyone who has seen track and field events during […]

Chappypie: Chinese Theme Park proposed for NSW Coast

On August 15, 2014, in Commentary, by mkennedy

Michael Kennedy A Chinese theme park, titled Chappypie, has been proposed for the town of Wyong on the central coast of New South Wales. The park, which aimed at Chinese tourists who seek packaged big destinations over travel experience, will be based on stereotypical Chinese themes. Presumably not just to attract tourists, but promote further […]

Section 18C won’t improve racial relations

On August 11, 2014, in Commentary, by mkennedy

Laws to suppress “offensive” speech, that is speech which could be interpreted by someone as victimizing them on the basis of race or ethnicity would likely serve to worsen race relations rather than improve them.  In particular, in Australia, laws like section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act. Contrary to the opinions of many Liberals, […]

Whitewashing hate: Is the Internet fuelling the global rise of hate groups?

On August 3, 2014, in Commentary, by natalt

Ryan Clover 2572 words Introduction Estimates figure the number of White Pride forums active on the Internet at around eight-thousand (Banks 2010, p. 234). Those tracking the trend claim their presence has grown exponentially since the first racialist bulletin board went live in 1985. While there have been calls for uniform censorship of such sites, […]
