Shutting the door on darkies: it’s what Jesus would do.

When he isn’t bearing false witness on his CV, right-wing Catholic Federal Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews is declaring no more room at the inn for Sudanese refugees–you know, those people who are fleeing from a situation in which they run the constant risk of being raped or murdered by Janjaweed and Sudanese government forces–because he thinks they “have been slow to integrate with the wider community.” The evidence for this claim–evidence that African refugees are less able to “integrate” (whatever that means anyway) into the Australian community than refugees from the Middle East or Asia–is for Cabinet’s eyes only, so you’ll just have to trust him. The Victorian police say he’s spouting nonsense: “young African men accounted for less than 1per cent of the state’s crime statistics and did not present a major difficulty for law enforcement,” according to the Police Commissioner. But they’re just “in denial,” retorts Kev, who claims “anecdotal evidence suggests otherwise.” Anecdotal evidence, you see, trumps statistical evidence. Textbook magical thinking. Kev missed his calling in life: instead of falsely claiming to co-author other people’s books, he could be making a fortune writing his own books on Christian apologetics.

As even the folks at the Government Gazette are forced to conclude . . . Dog: meet whistle.

I think it’s really time for a clean-wiping of whatever idea’s that rape the value of human lives alltogether- i really want a clean planet, and no matter what it takes, i’m gonna have it~were basic respect for life itself is a minimum..;

We can, we are all more powerful then we think you see- the dogs can bark as much as they want, and act though- but it doesn’t change even a single bit our capacity to turn this place into something decent- the walls will fall and the flood of righteousness is coming- ;

Thanks for making public what people should think about;
