WHO ARE “WE” February 13, 2006Posted by wmmbb in Australian Politics.
It seems the member of Hughes, represents some of her electorate, not others who are not “we”, which means I infer means people not of Anglo-Celtic background. Those are the people supposedly who have a special loyalty to the flag with the Union Jack on it. I know that Gary Sauer-Thompson has covered this, but I have just heard what she said on the radio news.
Dana Vales words are included in the ABC News report:
“I’ve actually read in the Daily Telegraph where a certain imam from the Lakemba mosque actually said that Australia is going to be a Muslim nation in 50 years’ time,” she said. “I didn’t believe him at the time but when you actually look at the birthrates and you look at the fact that we are aborting ourselves almost out of existence by a 100,000 abortions every year. “You multiply that by 50 years, that’s 5 million potential Australians we won’t have here.”Mrs Vale says apart from the morals of the issue, she is concerned about what she says are the implications for Australia’s future.”The ramifications it actually has for the community and the nation we’ll become in the future is not for the decision of the TGA,” she said.
I suppose this will play with some people. I do not wonder whether the prime minister in the national interest will contradict her, probably on the basis of freedom of speech.
Perhaps I am unfair.
