Australian racists recently set up a Facebook site called ‘Dear Boat People, Australia Says, “Fuck Off, We’re Full”’. As of writing this it has 7,132 Australian racists signed up to it. In response to this, however, Australian anti-racists and multiculturalists have set a Facebook site which is called ‘I am Australian and I Would Rather Immigrants Living Here Than Racists’. As of this writing, a very heartening 21,107 Australian anti-racists and multiculturalists had signed up to it and the number is growing by the hour.
Just the title of the racist Facebook site tells you much about the type of ‘Australians’ that these people are – pig ignorant, foul-mouthed and full of hate. The kind of comments that one will find at the Facebook hate site are the same as one will find at Andrew Bolt’s racist hate site at the Herald Sun newspaper. Like Bolt’s racist hate site, the Facebook hate site tends to exclude any dissenters from their commentary.
What the two diametrically opposed Facebook sites do demonstrate however is that the support for asylum seekers, Aboriginal rights and multiculturalism generally is overwhelming and exposes the racists of Australia as a minority extremist group that exists only on the edges of mainstream Australian society, a notion that flies in the face of racist hate sites like Andrew Bolt’s who, together with his tiny flock of racist bloggies, seem to think that, because Bolt is supported by a Murdoch-owned mainstream media newspaper, reflects the views of the majority of Australians. Clearly, it doesn’t!
