Pass this on and hopefully it will gain some legs
It certainly reflects what the vast majority of us think but are
sometimes too afraid to say
After hearing South Australia changed its opinion and let a Muslim woman
have her picture on her driver's license with her face covered, this is
an editorial written by an Australian citizen, published in a local
IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT.
I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some
individual or their culture.
Since the terrorist attacks on Bali Bombing, we have experienced a surge
in patriotism by the majority of Australians.
However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the
"politically correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility
that our patriotism was offending others.
I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who
is seeking a better life by coming to Australia.
Our population is almost entirely made up of descendants of immigrants.
However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our
country, and apparently some born here, need to understand.
This idea of Australia being a multicultural community has served only
to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity.
As Australians, we have our own culture, our own society, our own
language and our own lifestyle.
This culture has been developed over centuries of struggles, trials, and
victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.
We speak ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese,
Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of
our society, learn the language!
"In God We Trust" is our National Motto. This is not some Christian,
right wing, political slogan. We adopted this motto because Christian
men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is
clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the
walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider
another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our
If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like A Fair Go, then you
should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet.
We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we
really don't care how you did things where you came from.
This is OUR COUNTRY, Our Land, and Our Lifestyle, and we will allow you
every opportunity to enjoy all this.
But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about our Flag,
Our Pledge, Our National Motto, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage
you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom -
THE RIGHT TO LEAVE!!!
I figure if we all keep passing this to our friends (and acquaintances)
it Will also, sooner or later get back to the complainers, lets all try,
