In his unrelenting quest to demonise African refugees Bolt writes in his column today:
“Our refugee program seems to pose a danger to Australians. Those who say it’s racist to say so should worry more about the “racist” reaction if these dangers are not tackled fast”.
One wonders why Bolt always picks on non-white immigrants. If it’s not Africans, then its Afghans. If it’s not Afghans, then its Iraqis. It’s never Germans or Irish or British or Canadians. Occasionally it’s New Zealanders – but then only if they are Maori.
And what’s ‘the “racist” reaction’ he’s on about? Does he think in his addled mind that it is non-white immigrants that arrive in Australia that are racist against white Australians? If so, I wonder why that would be. Or is it the other way around where, because of the non-white immigrant’s behaviour, white Australians are becoming racist as a reaction. But then you’d have to ask why young non-white immigrants behave the way they do. Bolt seems to think it’s because they were made that way because they’re… well, non-white. It wouldn’t occur to him that people in groups, regardless of where they are from, tend to behave badly in public as a reaction to the discriminating way they are treated in the community when it comes to work opportunities and housing.
And what provokes this cycle of discrimination and racist turmoil against non-white Australians? People like Andrew Bolt.
