After the City of Sydney decided not to put up Christmas lights, through fear of offending other cultures...

After hearing that the state of South Australia changed its opinion and let a Muslim woman have her picture on her driver's license with her face covered...

This editorial was written by an Australian citizen and published in an Australian newspaper.

Australia- The Right to Leave

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 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 culture.

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.

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"

If you aren't happy here then piss off! We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.

Pretty easy really, when you think about it.

Thats Ted Nugent, aka MotorCityMadman(rock and roll legend)
He's very conservative, very patriotic. He's also a big supporter of hunting and gun rights.

This is the part that I don't understand, but having never been in Australia, I can't comment. I don't see how some foreigners came into this country and my county and imposed their beliefs on me. If anything, it's the secularists here who seem to complain about religious symbols displayed in public place. I don't give a damn if you display Nativity scene in front of the Supreme Court. But this also gives leeway to people of other faiths to portray their beliefs, and I am ok with that too, if they're not allowed, then it becomes hypocritical. What I wouldn't appreciate is some Jehova's Witness jamming some sermons and force me to hear it. Or for me to go a public court and forced take an oath using Bible or Book of Bodhidharma, etc, if I don't believe in it, it's useless for me to be subjugated.

However, reading that article, I find it very comical that the guy gets off from some Arab women taking her driver license photo with her face covered. Get a real issue! And if Sydney feels insecure about displaying their Christmas scene, then blame the law maker and law enforcer and their lack of backbone in this matter. Or some secularist liberal for that matter. But if they're brushing the entire blame off to the foreigners, well give them the same rights to display their beliefs, they'll shut up.

I live in the U.S and its getting worse every day.. More PC Bullcrap to deal with . In my daughters school SPANISH is now a mandatory language class ....either you pass the class for the credit or you dont go to the next grade level....

When i was told this i was furious, .Why does my daughter have to learn spanish where English is native language?
I am waiting for the day when children are born with "Made in China" stamped on thier ass...
I am an old country boy "God, Guns, Guts" helped keep our right to freedom and that is being taken away one slice at a time By changing our country to make Arabs,chinese,mexicans happy, aww heck just call us the rainbow nation, multi color .....

If people from other countries want a better place to live ,why not just stay home and fix your country. Dont come here and screw up my country...

I am not gonna comment about most of your reply however I agree with you about the spanish thing being bullshit, that is bullshit. When I was in middle school we were given the choice of latin, spanish, or french. And it was mandator we were at least semi-proficent in one of them (we had to take a spoken test). I think we should be learning japanese, doesnt that make a lot more sence? In japan the students all learn english, you know why? Because they have a major impact on our economy and business relations. I don't really see any point in spanish being a mandatory language.

Last I checked spanish wasnt a mandatory language. However a second language was mendatory. Smaller schools cannot afford to teach more then one, and its much easier to find a spanish instructor than a japanese one.

Please tell me you are not against learning a second language. Its the same bullshit argument as "why learn algebra? I'll never use it" so you arent raised an idiot thats why.

I agree. If we recognize any Christian religions/traditions on public property then we have to let the Diaper Heads with their prayer rugs bow to Mecca all day long on the same property.

So whats wrong with that? I say let em pray in whatever language they feel like, its not hurting my feelings any. Just keep things civil, no shooting ak's in the air every evening after prayers, or letting a whole lot of cattle walk around town. Other then that do whatever floats your boat.
Seriously, if employerst started giving people a month off paid leave for ramadan in addition to all the other holidays are people really going to mind? (Ignoring the economic impossibility of it all)

No, I'm referring strictly to public property - property that is paid for and owned by the tax payers (schools, county clerk's office, state capitol buildings, DMV buildings, etc.) . All religious beliefs should be kept away. Private property - go for it.

Hi All-

Ding-ding-ding! Matkal wins the prize for socio-political rock n' roll RKBA knowledge! :cool:

The simple fact-of-the-matter is that freedom-loving, decent, and honorable countries like the United States, Australia, Great Britain, Spain, and others have gone out of their way to make visitors from other lousy parts of the world feel comfortable whenever they visit. To the point of being absurd when we have things like "Holiday Trees" and nonsense like that.

While he is undoubtedly a wildman, I believe that Uncle Ted Nugent has a firm grasp on how reasonable and intelligent societies should be comporting themselves in this world.

Well cookee the chap wrote the letter from his heart & did a good job of expressing his belief & was right in his mind & the way of so many others.

Unfortunately those from other countries, other languages, other cultures, & other religions are slowly spreading all over the world especially into the Wester Countries being Europe, & North America. We are the infidels that some of the Moslim fanatics feel should be killed. Yet some to many those Moslims are most faithfull & upstanding citizens in our countries.

Here in Cdn we have a lot of French-Canadians with some happy with the way the country has been for all these yrs. After all they are possibly 4th to 6th generation Cdn birth. Some seem to feel they want to have their OWN country & seperate from Cdn. Without all the money coming from Ottawa, Ontario meaning the Federal Govt which also means the other nine Provinces of Cdn., it is a bit hard to accept their outlook. Some political figure even said they wanted their own battleships & submarines. Good gosh the largest Cdn has is a destroyer & one supply ship along with four usless mothballed subs from the UK that are totally usless. Okay so I agree we also have a few smaller frigates though larger the the frigates of WWII when they bobbed around in the Atlanic ocean like corks.

We do have TWO official languages being English & French though now in high school & university you can look upon said 2nd language of being German, Spanish, Chinese or such. Which also makes it easier for those of where the home language is NOT English so they can say the home language along with English.

Mind you IF you want to progress in this country be it in business, armed forces,RCMP, civil servant or politican you had best become fluent in both languages of English & French & YES the Govt has put out a fortune in special FRENCH learning classes for all of its civil servants, RCMP & so many more, though true some English classes for the French-only speaking ones. After all why do you think we have such strange accents with one Cdn & not with the other bar the famous "eh" at the end of some sentences!!!!!!

We have a LOT of immigrants coming into Cdn like a lot from East India so different faiths & unfortunately they are slowly forcing things to be THEIR way. Right now we are 1.5 days away from an important Federal election with a lot of East Indians running for ridings in Parliment. Obviously if said riding is loaded with same sort of people then they are bound to win a postion as Member of Parliment.

But the unfortunately some have come here still with their hate of others back in their home land or next to it & still wanting to carry out the same hate to kills here in Cdn. Like a few yrs ago a Minister of Indian was over for business & then a one day sort of holiday trip only the Sikhs knew his route & he was shot to death. Even then Sikhs seem to have those with the old ways & others with the new ways & they require a lot of RCMP constables to stop them from fighting amongst each other----------rather stupid for I feel if they are that way then fight amongst each other.

Also a flood of dark skinned people (basically from the Caribben countries) into Ontario & Quebec Provinces with them uneducated, living on welfare money, along with money they are making from dealing in drugs & so gangs & fighting amongst each other with the poor law abiding Cdn citizens often being cought in the cross-fire of said gang-drug dealers wars. Catch them time & time again with criminal offences to finally kicking them out of Cdn & they will be back again within a week or two doing the same. Yet some of those people are the best of citizens & workers to profressors or doctors we could possibly receive. Itis freaking insane.

For this is NOT how Cdn slowly came togeather & grew up. To bad the only way you could get to Cdn or North America is not in small sail boats like back in 18th-19th century. That would also have meant no WWI, WWII, Korean War, 'Nam, Afghanistan, Iraq & such. Unfortunately in our modern world, your worst enemie is almost like you closest neighbor due to fast means of transportation by air. The world has really become so small & easy to travel. We simply do not know what to do.

Smitty, it will take a nuclear, bio, or chemical attack to get the average North American to take immigration policies and border security seriously. The rest of the world has to get their house in order and not have their people flock here.

How true Desert-Lad for in the case of us North Americans it is so easy to sneak onto our land for we are not like small European Coninental countries that have the same sort of flooding.

We have rusy old ships that make it to our shores from China or you name it. So even my thoughts about old ways like sail ship to modern ways of air are sort of shot.

By the way DL I got to thinking & realized there was something I had not mentioned so go back to my post & the fifth paragraph which is about French & English language matters.

You phone ANY Provincial or Federal office anyplace in in Cdn & the first thing you will receive a good morning or whatever in French & English last. Shows how the Govts have leaned so heavily towards French language. Mind you all you have to say is "English please" & then you have one speaking proper English or with so much French in them that you think you are speaking to someone from China or where ever. Especailly as we have to deal with Quebec to other Eastern Cdn Provinces when it comes to Federal matters & I guess it hits all of use since everything that has to do with f/arms is controlled by the Fed Govt & so to Fed hired employees in French-Cdn speaking Provinces like New Brunswick & such other little Provinces of where they have a maze of MPS for such a small area & popuation compared to the small number of MPs in Western Cdn & B.C.

Tell me about it. There is a McDonalds two blocks away from me and I have to point to the menu. No one speaks ANY English. I've talked to my neighbors and they are sick of the place. And I don't live in what is considered a Spanish part of town.
