A gang of predominantly white males has been threatening our way of life and making people feel unsafe in their jobs. The IPAx gang has instilled fear in a great many Australians but our current Federal Government refuses to admit that there’s a problem, in spite of the fear that they instill in many people. For example, the ABC are so intimidated that they frequently invite them onto their programs, claiming that they do so in the interests of “balance”, when we all know it’s simply so their presenters don’t have to be afraid of going out to dinner with the PM.
Many of the members have no respect for the our culture and can frequently be heard supporting lawlessness by railing against regulation. They have frequently argued for the repeal of laws that they say prevent them from offending, insulting, humiliating or intimidating people or groups. They exhibit no concern for our environment, and some have even doubted the beauty of our wide, brown land, while others simply claim that our attractions like the Great Barrier Reef are hardy and will bounce back.
They argue that their efforts to eliminate or water down anti-discrimination laws aren’t because they’re a group of white males, pointing out that some of their number are in fact female. For example, gang member, Georgina Downer, insisted that they were not “political” and that it’s only coincidence that many of the members join the same political party.
While some gang members proudly exhibit their colours in public, the ones supplying the funding insist that their identities remain secret…
Yeah, you’re right. This story is a bit of a beat-up. But it’s nothing like the job that Channel 7 did on African gangs earlier in the week. When they complained that police won’t admit it’s a problem, I couldn’t help but think of Saddam Hussein’s WMDs. We kept getting told that he was refusing to hand them over, and when he allowed weapons inspectors into the country, he further showed his duplicity by hiding them. Not only that, long after his country was invaded, he continued to hide them. Strange though, one would have thought that he’d have felt the need to use them once the country was at war. Strange also, that the USA didn’t seem to be factoring in massive damage to their troops – or even civilians back home – when they attacked. After all they were supposed to be weapons of MASS destruction! Mm, I also remember Liberal Ministers complaining that the ABC reporting of the WMDs was “cynical” and seemed to doubt their existence. But, of course, that was before we discovered that they didn’t exist, so it wasn’t an example of anything other than ABC bias against believing something just because it was being told us by Liberal pollies.
Similarly, when the police say things like, “Yes, there are African youths committing crimes but, as a percentage of overall crimes, it’s not that high”, this is an example of the police’s refusal to acknowledge that you can’t have a clearly identifiable problem unless the “enemy” is a clearly identifiable group of people. Why, some crime figures are so much just like you and I, that a guy who wants to be Premier, can have lunch with them without even realising that such people are “known to police”. Perhaps I should say “alleged”. Ok, such people are alleged to have an alleged lunch with a guy who allegedly wants to be Premier with people who are known to alleged police.k
Of course, statistics are one thing and any gang violence is to be deplored. It’s not going to matter, for example, if someone has just punched you and stolen your wallet and phone, whether they’re black, white or purple. If I tell you that even though you have a broken nose, you need to remember that most white males aren’t criminals, you’ll probably look at me and wonder what on earth I’m telling you that for.
No, African gangs are the big problem, and not because we’re racist. Nah, that’s got nothing to do with it. It’s because the people we hope to appeal to are racist.
