Muslim school okayed in Liverpool

We’re betting a Catholic school would never have faced the same objections nor would have generated any threats of violence against councillors.

Public wars with council over new Islamic school

By George Roberts for AM

Sydney’s south-west is once again the battleground over plans to build a new Islamic school.

Last night, the Liverpool Council approved the school, despite some councillors’ attempts to send the project back to the drawing board.

The decision comes less than a month after the Land and Environment Court rejected plans to build an Islamic school further west, in Camden.

There are about 30 Islamic schools in Australia, with about half of those in New South Wales.

Eager to hear whether Hoxton Park would have a new school, locals packed the Council Chamber and spilled out into the lobby.

This time allegations of racism and threats against council members have marred celebrations over the approval of the school.

Racist Facebook group vanishes!

Yep, ‘Fuck Off We’re Full,’ with its 64,500 “friends” (the vast majority, like about 64,250 being fake accounts) has disappeared.

What on earth could have happened?

Wait, Darrin ‘gay porn & sex toys’ Hodges of the ‘Australian Protectionist Party’ (which isn’t actually a political party since Daz can’t find the minimum 500 real people to join) tells us:

Darrin wrote at 11:23pm
The original group “Fuck off we’re full” was taken over by multicultualists [sic] on 15/06/09.

Who are those dang interloping, Facebook group deleting multiculturalists?

Who COULD they be?

FDB knows- but we’re not telling.

Deakin University Associate Professor Dr Rohan Bastin said: “If people are saying ‘if you don’t like it, leave’, then they’re demonstrating that they’re profoundly stupid.”

We knew that, too. The disappearance of the FOWF group is proof positive.

There is no such thing as a ‘moderate’ anti-immigrant group

Like the last “moderate” anti-immigrant group the Republican Party championed, Youth for Western Culture, the leadership of the “Minutemen” have been arrested for serious violent crimes against minorities. This time, it’s multiple murder. This is what “respectable” racism looks like.

From KVOA-TV, Tuscon, Arizona:

Home invasion suspects tied to border group

Two of three people arrested in a southern Arizona home invasion that left a little girl and her father dead had connections to a Washington state anti-illegal immigration group that conducts border watch activities in Arizona.

Jason Eugene Bush, 34, Shawna Forde, 41, and Albert Robert Gaxiola, 42, have been charged with two counts each of first-degree murder and other charges, said Sheriff Clarence Dupnik of Pima County, Ariz.

The trio are alleged to have dressed as law enforcement officers and forced their way into a home about 10 miles north of the Mexican border in rural Arivaca on May 30, wounding a woman and fatally shooting her husband and their 9-year-old daughter.

Their motive was financial, Dupnik said.

“The husband who was murdered has a history of being involved in narcotics and there was an anticipation that there would be a considerable amount of cash at this location as well as the possibility of drugs,” Dupnik said.

Forde is the leader of Minutemen American Defense, a small border watch group, and Bush goes by the nickname “Gunny” and is its operations director, according to the group’s Web site.

Fuck off, we’re fools

From the ABC:

65,000 sign on to anti-immigrant Facebook group

By News Online’s Amy Simmons

A Melbourne academic says shutting down Facebook hate groups is not the way to combat “rising levels of intolerance” in Australia.

After recent attacks on Indian students in Melbourne and Sydney, one Facebook group – which says Australia is “full” and urges immigrants to “learn the language” or enjoy their “right to leave” – has attracted nearly 64,500 members.

One poster calls on Australians to stand against “curry munching idiots”, saying the attacks on the students may have been “frustration driven, due to their foolish traits and culture”.

“We request you to please unite and stand against the recent protests by Indians … drive all the immigrants out and make Australia clean,” he said.

“We have our unique Aussie culture, we drink beer, we eat meat, pork and beef. If you can’t bear with that, please leave.”

Deakin University Associate Professor Dr Rohan Bastin says Australia has a strong sentiment of ‘assimilationism’, where immigrants are expected to become part of a ‘mainstream Australia’.

“If people are saying ‘if you don’t like it, leave’, then they’re demonstrating that they’re profoundly stupid,” he said.

“You’re not being racist, but you are being essentialist, homogenising and therefore completely intolerant.”

Racist Facebook group targets Aussie immigrants

A rapidly expanding social networking site has been slammed for its racist taunts against immigrants to Australia.

The Facebook Group, F*** Off, We’re Full, has nearly 65,000 members and believes any immigrants coming to Australia must adapt to what it calls the ‘Aussie lifestyle.’

“This idea of Australia being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity,” the site states.

“As Australians, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle.”

The website is full of debate on its discussion board. The latest topics put up for comment include: Will Indian race-rioters be hunted down? and All foreigners need to be euthanised…

Partytrick O’Sullivan wears out a keyboard bashing Indians

From News.com.au:

‘Disgusting’ website urged offensive against Indians

AN Australian website urging a “hate offensive” against Indians was condemned as “disgusting”, while fears grow that racial tensions will escalate.

For the past six months, Melbourne man Patrick O’Sullivan has posted comments onto a white supremacy forum about how “evil” Indians were and urged others to participate in a “Summer hate offensive” in the Victorian city.

In a post just before Christmas, he asked for people to call him if they wanted to participate.

“For those of you in or nearby Melbourne, contact me. This summer a lot of Race Hate is occurring! RAHOWA!”

RAHOWA is understood to stand for Racial Holy War.
