Been reading and hearing a lot about race riots in Australia.
The news reports are somewhat confusing and misleading in these parts (New York), but from what I can gather, the situation can be summed up thusly:
1. Roving bands of Australian "youths" are attacking Muslims with whatever comes to hand.
2. The "youths" seem to have no justification for doing so.
3. Lot's of surfers and beach-bunnies seem to be involved.
Of course, that's just the take of the liberal media around these parts. Reading between the lines, I come to the following conclusions:
1. Australians are sick to death of Muslims, particularly in recent days, when an Australian citizen is awaiting execution in Indonesia on a drug charge. This has been a hot-button item with the Australian people, who despite the fact that the man engaged in illegal activity, still don't want to see him killed for it. Especially not by brutal Sharia executioners.
2. There's always a reason for riots, but perhaps the media here don't want us to know why. They'd rather portray these events as white racism against poor, third-world refugees because doing so advances their own agenda: keeping Americans stupid enough to elect a Democrat come 2008.
3. Being the self-appointed arbiters of what is right and correct in society, the news folks can pretty much do anything they want, and have the ability to do so: they have the sattelite feeds, video tape and broadcasting capabilities. According to their code of political correctness, Muslims are victims of other people's violence, never the instigators.
4. I wouldn't be surprised if a bunch of Muslim "victims" were actually a roving rape gang, oggling or fondling beach-bunnies, who managed to run afoul of some non-politically-correct Aussie surfer boys who decided to take the law into their own hands, and the phenomenon just merely spread. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a wide-spread belief that Muslims come to Australian beaches simply to oggle and potentially rape the Aussie beach belles. They do so everywhere else, it seems, so that the action taken by white Aussie males, put into this context, can be explained as Aussie men doing what they're supposed to do: protecting the wimmenfolk from rapacious marauders.
Of course, my view of Islam and the walking filth that practices it, is skewed; I hate 'em. I understand them (all too well), but I still hate 'em.
I saulte the Aussie surfer, who seems to have more in the testicle department than his cheese-eating cousins.
