They wish...

I was perusing the Wash Post forum tied to the story on Obama standing up for the Bill of Rights when I saw this little number posted from a half-wit calling himself Uncle Buck.

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday
to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to
head off potential terror attacks. A day after a group of mainstream
Muslim leaders pledged loyalty to Australia and her Queen at a special
meeting with Prime Minister John Howard, he and his Ministers made it
clear that extremists would face a crackdown. Treasurer Peter Costello,
seen as heir apparent to Howard, hinted that some radical clerics could
be asked to leave the country if they did not accept that Australia was
a secular state, and its laws were made by parliament. "If those are not
your values, if you want a country which has Sharia law or a theocratic state, then
Australia is not for you!," he said on national television. "I'd be
saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two laws governing
people in Australia: one the Australian law and another the Islamic law,
that is false. If you can't agree with parliamentary law, independent
courts, democracy, and would prefer Sharia law and have the opportunity
to go to another country, which practices it, perhaps, then, that's a
better option," Costello said. Asked whether he meant radical clerics
would be forced to leave, he said those with dual citizenship could
possibly be asked to move to another country.

Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that Muslims who
did not want to accept local values should "clear off. Basically
people who don't want to be Australians, and who don't want to live by
Australian values and understand them, well then, they can basically
clear off," he said.

Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by
saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques, quote:
"IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It.
I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some

individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, 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 . 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 two
centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and
women who have sought freedom. We speak mainly 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! Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian,
right wing, political push, but a fact, 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 culture.
We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is
that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with
us. If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like "A Fair Go",
then you should s eriously 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. By all
means, keep your culture, but do not force it on others.

"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 Christian beliefs,
or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other
great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'." If you aren't happy
here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be
here. So accept the country YOU accepted."

Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, American citizens will
find the backbone to start speaking and voting the same truths!!

Yeah, some in the libs likely wish they could have done that, but it never happened. Indeed this looks like a 'Dear Penthouse Forum' fucking fantasy letter from a Young Liberal.

The fact is Oz succeeds is because we are multi-cultural. We are not mono-cultural. We reject the tenets of the White Australia policy and its crap and we see it as a stain on our national character, much like the Japanese internments or Jim Crow laws were a stain on the proud history of the United States.


So Americans who are indulging in a hint of google to bolster your views on Islam then please note, the above? Didn't happen. Some in the Liberal party - so named for their economic views - may have wished it did, but it did not. Peddle your hate crap elsewhere.

UPDATE: Ah, that's where it's from. It was from a chain email written post S11 and adapted by knuckles trying to pin it to Australia.
