From terra nullius to terra fullius, white Christians are taking over Australia, writes contributing editor-at-large Tess Lawrence.
BRING BACK THE BLACK AUSTRALIA POLICY — we are being overrun by White Christians.
Our black identity is near extinct. There are too many whites in Australia. The country's cultural identity is being corroded and undermined to the extent that we are no longer regarded by the rest of the world as a black nation.
For too long, Australia has been an Antipodean dumping ground for white Christian criminals. In fact, in the early days of the white Christian invasion, you couldn't even get into Australia unless you had a criminal conviction.
FROM TERRA NULLIUS TO TERRA FULLIUS
We have gone from terra nullius to terra "fullius". Slam the door shut. Enough White Christians, already.
Such "tickets" were the forerunner of the ridiculously generous Ten Pound Pom scheme that saw waves of white, nominally Christian boat people reach our shores — many of them sunbaking on our once pristine beaches in feeble attempts to darken their skin and assimilate. But that didn't last long.
In an underhand move that was designed to preserve the white race, a propaganda campaign called "Slip, Slop, Slap" was successfully mounted across the nation, imploring the white-skinned to protect themselves from the sun. It worked. White-skinned people stayed out of the sun in droves.
These days, white Christians no longer bother with such pretexts and crime statistics reflect the harsh reality that they remain the largest group of criminal offenders. Look at the bank chiefs appearing before the Financial Services Royal Commission — all White and probably Christian.
All the clergy who have been before the Child Abuse Royal Commission and those priests found guilty in the courts of such crimes have been White and Christian.
WHITES LOITER EVERYWHERE AS IF THEY OWN THE PLACE
The majority of people on welfare payments are White. Hordes of them hang about Bunnings and loiter in shopping centres, our main streets and supermarkets, pushing and shoving their way here and there as if they own the place. It is quite intimidating. They congregate at bus stops and train stations.
They buy up most of the houses or sell them to off-White buyers – like the Chinese – at over-inflated prices. Because their skin is yellowish on the race colour spectrum, White Christians argue they are then more White-ish. Honorary Whites.
Whites started off as a minority and now they are a majority. Statistics don't lie.
Just have a look at the majority of members of our Federal Parliament. Nearly all White. No wonder they've White-trashed the place.
ANNING AND HIS FIRST SPEECH
One of the white Senators had the gall to say in his first speech (and what's wrong with using the words "maiden speech" that denote an intact hyphen?) that he wants to “reduce immigration levels and restrict entry to those who will best assimilate”.
What the very White Senator Fraser Anning means is this. Restrict entry to Whites. For goodness sake, put a white sock in it. Open the floodgates and the white shoe brigade will jackboot all over us, mark my words.
Look at the subtext behind his surname:
'Secondly, Anning may be from a patronymic of the French female personal name "Agnes", deriving from the Greek "hagnos" meaning "pure" or "sacred". Only a handful of surnames surviving were derived from the name of the first bearer's mother.'
His beloved leader, Member for Kennedy Bob Katter, is of Lebanese descent, but hey, he's White and got even whiter hair — and guess what? Yep, he's a dinky-di Christian. Another White armband for Bob.
Anning openly admits to longing for a Judeo-Christian Australia, just like the one our forebears forethought with avarice when they plonked the Christian English flag, known as the Union Jackhammer, into the sand at Botany Bay, site of the White Christian Captain James Cook's first landing on Oz.
It was James, after all, who cooked the books and said that Australia was uninhabited — never mind the blacks who were standing right in front of him.
CAPT COOK FAR RIGHT EXTREMIST CLAIMS OZ AS CHRISTIAN CALIPHATE
Cook was a far-Right extremist who claimed Australia as a Christian caliphate for the English Monarch.
And children, from that day forth, the White terrorists from the European land of Whitedom, proceeded to procreate in such vast numbers until to this day, there are millions upon millions of White people and only a comparative handful of Black people.
Whites rule. They say who comes in – and who is forced out – of Australia. Their law is "sharia" in Australia.
Every now and then, they tickle the Black person's hopes and dreamings — as in acknowledging them as first custodians of the land. But Black people are still the ones held in political custody; refugees in their own country.
THE STATEMENT FROM THE HEART
Consider the rebuff by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and the Coalition Turncoats of that profoundly eloquent, well drafted and well-crafted document of Black Indigenous human rights, the dear Uluru Statement from the Heart.
The hurt was like a nulla nulla to the heart.
From the statement, these poignant words:
Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tribes were the first sovereign Nations of the Australian continent and its adjacent islands, and possessed it under our own laws and customs. This our ancestors did, according to the reckoning of our culture, from the Creation, according to the common law from ‘time immemorial’, and according to science more than 60,000 years ago.
This sovereignty is a spiritual notion: the ancestral tie between the land, or ‘mother nature’, and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who were born therefrom, remain attached thereto, and must one day return thither to be united with our ancestors. This link is the basis of the ownership of the soil, or better, of sovereignty. It has never been ceded or extinguished, and co-exists with the sovereignty of the Crown.
How could it be otherwise? That peoples possessed a land for sixty millennia and this sacred link disappears from world history in merely the last two hundred years?
With substantive constitutional change and structural reform, we believe this ancient sovereignty can shine through as a fuller expression of Australia’s nationhood.
Proportionally, we are the most incarcerated people on the planet. We are not an innately criminal people. Our children are aliened from their families at unprecedented rates. This cannot be because we have no love for them. And our youth languish in detention in obscene numbers. They should be our hope for the future.
These dimensions of our crisis tell plainly the structural nature of our problem. This is the torment of our powerlessness.
We seek constitutional reforms to empower our people and take a rightful place in our own country. When we have power over our destiny our children will flourish. They will walk in two worlds and their culture will be a gift to their country.
We call for the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution.
Makarrata is the culmination of our agenda: the coming together after a struggle. It captures our aspirations for a fair and truthful relationship with the people of Australia and a better future for our children based on justice and self-determination.
Fat chance. Not White enough.
