If you're going to wear the Aussie flag, get it right!

New policy to continue 'genius' multiculturalism

The Federal Government has announced it will develop a new multicultural policy to combat racism and religious extremism, in order to continue "the genius of Australian multiculturalism".

Immigration Minister Chris Bowen has announced a Multicultural Advisory Council will be set up as an independent advisory body, with ACT Senator Kate Lundy to be in charge of managing multicultural programs.

Mr Bowen told an audience at the Sydney Institute that there will also be a new strategy to tackle racism, as well as other measures.

WTF? Will they be working on the presumption that racism is a one-way street, that only white anglo-saxons can be racist?

Check the photo. If you're going to wear the Aussie flag over your hijab at least make sure it's not upside down.

Bloody typical. Always ten years behind the rest of the world, no matter how much evidence is available from other parts of the world (true in business as well as politics).

Leaders in Britain and Europe, only in the last few weeks, have announced (decided?) that multiculturalism has been a disastrous failure - they are now stepping away from the concept as quickly as they can and they have no politically correct qualms about saying so.

Meanwhile, in Oz ....

Uh Oh looks like they want to brain wash the great "unwashed" to their thinking, this is what happened in England under the Labour Party there. [Labour is spelt that way over there].

My family have Anglo-Irish heritage. But what is with these people? I am Australian. If they want to change their allegiance so be it, then leave Australia.

Labor needs the votes badly in NSW

Chris Bowen is a baboon of the highest calibre.

Be a multiracial society by all means, but multicultural is a fools paradise.
