Exactly whose country is it anyway?
When I lived there some 15 years ago and more, I was always much struck by just how fiercely Australians thought of themselves as Australian.
They believed that their nation was the best on Earth, blessed with unique natural gifts (like deadly snakes, deadly spiders, deadly crocodiles, deadly fish, deadly jellyfish, deadly riptides, deadly wild dogs, deadly frogs, deadly plants, deadly... well, you get the idea).
Their people had their own remarkably vibrant and vivid culture. You Americans think you have a strong car culture- you lot just wait until you go to Australia. Here in the US, it is common for two young men to posture and preen and show off their Ford Mustangs and pit them in drag races against the Dodge Challengers of their rivals.
But you have not seen a motorsport rivalry until you've been to Australia and watched Ford fans get into pitched battles with Holden (which is to say, ultimately, GM) fans at something called the Bathurst Rally, which as far as I can tell is basically a giant fistfight, liberally lubricated with tanker-loads of (really horrible) Australian lager, where during pauses between combat some sort of racing event takes place once in a while.
This was a culture that believed in itself, that understood its unique place in the history of the Anglosphere, and that was proud of its achievements. It was at once both welcoming and deeply hostile to outsiders, and it used to believe that people had to earn their way into Australian society.
Where, exactly, has all of that gone in the space of less than a single generation?
It has gone exactly where every society that has ever been infected with the disease of multiculturalism has gone: straight down the shitter.
And because one of the core tenets of multiculturalism is that all cultures are equally valid and worthwhile- except, of course, the dominant Anglo-Saxon culture that made the Anglosphere nations great in the first place- Australians have fallen prey to the flatly idiotic notion that Muslims are Just Like Everyone Else.
The evidence tells us that they plainly are not. Muslims, well-meaning and polite and decent though they usually are on an individual and even familial basis, are followers of the single most dangerous ideology that has ever confronted the (nominally) Christian West.
Islam is nothing short of a violent, intolerant, extremely dogmatic heresy of Christianity. Formed as it was out of a splinter branch of reform Judaism, based on a highly questionable origin story that falls apart the moment it is subjected to any serious investigation, it is nonetheless the single most successful heresy of Christianity- itself a heresy of Judaism- ever to see the light of day.
For all that it is a heresy, it is also a terrible threat. The last 14 centuries have seen nothing but war, in one form or another, waged by Islam against everyone else.
The Australians, like the rest of the West, have been lulled into forgetfulness by fifty years and more of peace, prosperity, and a very deliberate cultural Marxist campaign to cover up the truth about Islam, a political movement that disguises itself as a religion.
And now, like everyone else, the Australians are going to be confronted with an inevitable and extremely painful choice: Reconquista, or Shariah.
Those are the alternatives. Either one leads to war and death. It is not a matter of "if", but when.
With Reconquista, the war happens sooner rather than later- but the death toll that results will, I fervently hope and pray, be lower, because the price that has to be paid in human lives and treasure will grow with every passing year that Islam is allowed to creep into the West and consolidate its hold on power.
With Shariah, war comes later- but will be truly bloody and terrifying when it does. And in the long interregnum between the fall of Western civilisation and its subjugation under iron bonds of shariah, there will be generations of human suffering and misery to account for, as any halfway serious investigation of the history of Islam will reveal.
The Australians must ask themselves a very simple question: does Australia belong to Muslims, or to Australians?
It used to be that if you asked an Australian this, he would insist, often violently, that one can be both at the same time. But, as everyone else in Europe and the rest of the West is finding out, that simply is not true any more- if, indeed, it ever was.
