We’ve just had the following in via the contact form from the Rise Up Australia Party which we take great joy in presenting in its entirety:
From: Philip Bruce Heywood
Subject: Wish to submit a comment.
I have attempted at length but not to the length of paying money to get onto your blog. Twenty bucks, make it simple, I might join.
Allow me to quote from the top of your rules and reg’s.
“The-RiotACT.com expects and welcomes contributions that stimulate debate and discussion. While encouraging vigorous debate, we expect all participants to treat each other with respect and courtesy.”
Weekly NewsletterEvery Thursday afternoon, we package up the most-read and trending RiotACT stories of the past seven days and deliver straight to your inbox..
Let’s follow this with a quote from your header on R.U.A in Canberra:
“Another Bunch of Spite Filled Nutters to Watch for as Rise Up Australia gets Local.”
The comments which attend the “Spite Filled Nutters” post display an i.q. somewhere between twenty minutes of smoking hashish and a night on the bottle. Unless I did miss something, which is possible, since I wasn’t reading for detail.
Respectfully suggest you put the following up somewhere. Don’t worry, I’m here to speak to it. Drop on over the FURIOUS PURPOSE and type in a few relevancies such as my full name and Catch the Fire Ministries or Misrepresenting Dawkins or Judeo Christian Heritage, etc.
You practice free speech? Democracy? Balance? Quite possibly, you do. O.K., prove it. The following is lifted from FURIOUS PURPOSE. You could employ it for balance. Regards, P.B.H.
I am nothing more than a member of RISE UP AUSTRALIA PARTY and I hope I am not getting in their way, publishing my submissions to them. These submissions have been sent in some measure to all the parties. Danny Nalliah is way out in front. It is blindingly obvious that welcoming worldviews of discrimination and religious racism into any nation can only have one result. The people running the country have not been watchful over its welfare. Our home-bred squalling banshee anarchists haven’t been helping. In short: import genocidal Africa or religiously racist Arabia or the bomb happy IRA into the nation in great quantity, and what does the nation become? The queerest aspect of the whole scene is the blindness of the said “correct” banshees, intent on expelling God and decency. They will get God, all right – five times a day, the Scribe and Pharisee Brigade. And burka’s, finally, to cover themselves. Every cloud has a silver lining.
Just stand by and import the blood soaked world of Allah’s bigotry and religious apartheid – in the name of humanity and tolerance! Trample the safeguards of the Australian Constitution, deny the worldview that bought us free speech and tolerance, get so correct as to be more correct than correctness itself.
Rise Up Australia is ‘on the money’. We need to re-discover the basics. These basics are enshrined in our Constitution and in the teachings of all humane, clear-thinking people: especially, in the teachings of Jesus Christ. As the Pastor has said, We need to love Islamics, and pray for them. That does not mean we are to embrace the doctrines of inhumanity and destruction. Australia has drifted so far from common sense and the real world, we need to remind ourselves of the real world.
Submissions: Economics; Education; Law; Environment. Notes on: Climate Change, Childrearing (touching Corporal Punishment), Democracy, Marriage Concepts.
