Species-ism: a displacement attitude to racism?

The other day whilst walking on a quiet bush track with a friend, we came across a magpie standing on some grass surveying the scene, including the pair of us. My friend said rather scornfully "I don't like those birds!" People who would never dream of vilifying a group of people on the basis of their race seem to have no compunction in vilifying members of an entire species often on the basis of nothing. Comments may seem harmless enough at first but on further reflection one realises they can be an incitement to harm. Is there a moral difference between racism and "species-ism"?

Snubbing the Trump clan is the new fashion in the media

During the US presidential inauguration ceremonies Trump's elegant and disciplined clan members appeared brave in the face of multiple violent threats, fanned by a jilted mainstream press, for example, CNN's, "Disaster could put Obama cabinet member in oval office." Beside their chubbier leader, the females of the Trump clan, with their gazelle-like legs and long hair, flawless skin and physiques, seemed like avatars from another world.

Video: Donald Trump denounces KKK & racism

In this video, Trump repeatedly denounces and denies KKK endorsement, as he is asked again and again, day after day, in a demonstration of truly absurd press behaviour. The KKK leader, David Duke, also states here that he never endorsed Trump. Despite the slurs, Donald Trump has denounced KKK hate groups and not said anything racist or bigoted. Yet Whoopi Goldberg, political opponents and main stream media types continue to perpetuate the lie.

The deadly racism of the ‘anti-racist’ liberal imperialist - article by Neil Clark

When it comes to hypocrisy, the pro-war Western ‘liberal’ is in a class of his own. While professing opposition to racism, the pro-war liberal is cheerleader for the most dangerous and deadly form of racism in the world today - contemporary US/Western imperialism. Article by Neil Clark, first published at https://www.rt.com/op-edge/362533-racism-war-west-imperialist/

A racism that is scarcely reported, but which has laid waste to entire countries and killed millions - and which now threatens to drag us into potentially catastrophic military confrontation with Russia.

4corners: Slaving Away - how immigrants are enslaved in Australia and workers in general exploited

Republished from the Australian investigative program, 4Corners: Slaving Away By Caro Meldrum-Hanna and Ali Russell, a program about slavery in Australia today. Although the program focuses on the abuse of backpackers on 457 visas and tourists working illegally in the fruit picking and chicken meat packaging industry, this is just the tip of an iceberg of exploitation that has arisen in Australia with massive increases in immigration at the same time as our industrial law protection has been wrecked. At the same time, cheap imports have made it impossible for many honest and worthwhile businesses to survive, whilst the loss of industrial protection has created an opportunity for corporations to exploit people to the max. The program also reflects another effect of globalisation and mass immigration - the high cost of housing. The enslaved temporary or illegal immigrants in this documentary are usually packed into unsavory premises for which they pay rent. Some might argue that since these people are paid wages - albeit slave wages - they are not slaves. However when you do not actually get paid on time and are kept in debt to your employer for rent and other charges, and when you do not speak English and have no idea where you are, and so cannot begin to extricate yourself - this amounts not only to slavery, but to illegal detention. Apparently Australian authorities claimed that it was too difficult to find these abusive enterprises, yet 4Corners was easily able to uncover this frightening industry, with the cooperation of the exploited and trapped workers. It looks like government is complicit at all levels.

End Immigration - it sux resources away from Australians

End Immigration - it sux resources away from Australia's homeless, unemployed and growing underclass. Migrants by plane rob locals of affordable housing, jobs, you name it. State infrastructure can't cope with 200,000 immigrants a year. The Green Foreign Labor Coalition is imposing upon Australians what British colonists did to Aborigines - taking over, marginalising, deculturing. National television programmes that antagonise Australians, pit immigrants against locals, that stir up racism like Joe Hildebrand's 'Dumb, Drunk and Racist' do not help.

Immigrants calling for more immigrants - dare one criticise and we will brand them 'RACIST'!

Australia's alternating Liberal/Labor (Laboral) governments accept all comers because they have become conditioned to be fearful of the racist slur automatically cast by immigrant lobby groups like the Federation of Ethnic Communities' Councils of Australia.

Australia's mass media is constantly bombarded by propaganda condemning any criticism of immigrants or any calls to reduce immigration. And guess who's driving the propaganda - the immigrants who want more of their country folk arriving and who protest 'stuff assimilation - we'll retain our nationality in Australia!

'Reverse Racism' incites 'Reactionary Racism' - it's a primitive human response

The 'Laboral'* policy of immigrant favouritism is Reverse Racism. It is discriminatory against local people and their traditional way of life. It is cultural treason. In Australia, when an immigrant gets into a position of influence (management, politics), favouritism handed to the immigrant's countrymen and women (i.e. jobs) should not be ignored by Australia's anti-discrimination laws, but it is. Minority groups have become the darlings of anti-discrimination and can do no wrong in the eyes of politically correct law makers.

But immigrant favouritism is a dangerous policy that has already undermined social cohesion in Australia. Cronulla in 2005 was a warning to governments. Heed it and curb the immigration and listen to the locals!

Selfish power of the growth lobby


For too long the immigration program has been out of public control and run purely for the interests of an elite number of business groups and portions of a pro-ethnic lobby who are both quick to throw the term "racist" or "nimby" when their their interests aren't pandered to.

Ideologies, economies and ideals are infinite, but not our land, our natural resources, our ecosystems, our limited fertile "green belt", our water, energy and our hip-pockets.

Who's afraid of Julia Gillard? The Growth Lobby, that's who.

The Australian Growth Lobby has only a couple of primitive weapons - calling the PM a racist and misrepresenting the figures. The other side has all the good arguments, as well as truth on its side. This article analyses the childish statistical misrepresentation and social innuendo in the 5 July 2010 Australian Financial Review editorial, "PM's own goal on population."

'One man dead, one critical after brawl', but the media suppress the fact that Australia has ethnic violence

When violence is reported in the Australian mainstream media, rarely is ethnicity mentioned, due to a self-policing media code of conduct that premises that reporting of ethnicity can incite racism. However, this code has been recently abandoned by mainstream media in the cases of recent violence against Indian students, probably in an attempt to highlight the particular racial problem. The result of media highlighting of this problem has in the main been successful.

But otherwise reporting of race is suppressed and so the problem of ethnic tension is suppressed and allowed to fester until someone dies. The death last night of a man at Mirrabooka in Perth's inner north is a case in point.

What is a racist?

The accusation of "racism" can more properly be hurled back at the accusers.

No More Admissions Required: Australia Is Full!

Are Australians being patriotic or simply bigoted, for wanting to contain immigration numbers?What is the definition of racist? What is the definition of patriotic? Do Australians have a right to be patriotic.. and concerned & protective of their dwindling assets, namely land and water?

Ad hoc population growth is on-going colonisation


60% of our population growth is due to immigration. This is basically on-going colonisation!
The best estimate of the First Fleet, that we celebrate on Australia Day, is 1373 people.  Today the numbers of permanent and long-term migrants arriving in Australia to more than 500,000 a year. 
The Roman Empire, built by controlled immigration, perished under an onslaught of uncontrollable barbarian migration.

Debate on immigration and racism should not be confused!

The abuse of the word “racist” is manipulating us into silence and being used to enforce policies that were appropriate and beneficial in past decades, but are not appropriate for Australia in the 21st century.

Immigration-fed growth in the economy is good only if it raises the real average incomes of the existing population.

If it doesn't, we're running a high immigration policy mainly for the benefit of the immigrants, who are able to earn more in our country than they were in their own country.

Bogeyman of racism a useful decoy for the Growth Lobby

Our primary concern should not be about how people in our lifeboat treat each other, where they are from or how they look, but how many damn passengers the boat can carry sustainably past the tumultuous storms of peak oil, peak water and peak everything that loom over the horizon.

Progress ideology, colonial racism, right to life and family planning

20th century birth control movements have been associated with eugenics and racism. Does this mean that they really were, still are, or that their pioneers were unusual in holding their beliefs? Margaret Sanger, a politically active nurse, was radicalised by the response of the authorities to her attempts to empower women of any origin. She would talk to any politically active group. Margaret Sanger's account of her talk to the Ku Klux Klan. Discussion of the politics of racism and overpopulation.
