Gary Humphries tables bigoted petition against Muslims in the Senate

By johnboy 15 February 2011 68

bigoted nutbag petition

The ABC reports that the ACT’s Liberal Senator Gary Humphries has done what other Senators were unwilling to do and tabled a petition in the Senate, signed by three Sydney folk, calling for a moratorium on Muslim immigration to Australia.

Gary’s on The Beast right now defending his championship of free speech.

Perhaps best if it had been left to a NSW Senator? Assuming any would touch it with a bargepole?

We’re trying to get a copy of the petition, if you can help email to john@the-riotact.com .

UPDATE: Senator Humphries has made this statement:

PETITIONS IN THE PARLIAMENT

I am a strong and proud supporter of multicultural Australia and have enjoyed a very strong relationship with the Muslim community both here in Canberra and around Australia.

Nonetheless, I believe it was my democratic responsibility as a Senator to table the petition I tabled last Thursday.

It is the right of every Australian to put their view to the Australian Parliament and the moment that Members and Senators start essentially acting as censors it detracts from our democracy.

Although I did not agree with what was in the petition, I tabled it for that very reason.

15 February 2011

I’ve now put the actual petition online so we all know what we’re talking about.

I would like to make it clear that in my opinion this is unequivocably the work of bigoted nutbags, who obviously have no mates, and I would not put it forward without being able to present that context.


What’s Your opinion?

Absolutely the right thing to do. Defending the rights of people he disagrees with.

GetUp, Avaaz, Change et al simply don’t understand the concept.

A wall of text, most likely directly copied from one of 22,000 other places. Everywhere it gets menitoned, it is being used to inflame the passions of fundamentalist evangelical Christianity.

This guy is the original source, and it comes from his book Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat. Feel free to buy a copy from Amazon, but note that a number of the reviewers also comment on books about Christian persecution, the history of slavery and white supremacy.

However:

1)
They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply.
You’re scared that they’ll express an interest in food? THE HORROR.
(Also I’ll also bet the threats are along the lines of “…Or I will not buy here.”)

I already buy spices from a halal butchery already. Does that make me a ‘victim of Islam’?

2) Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in India — Muslim 13.4%

The Muslim parts of India are actually pretty stable for the most part, and most of the unrest is over Kashmir. The Hindu\Sikhs cause most of their native unrest.

3) At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in Bosnia — Muslim 40%

Were you paying attention in the 90s, when the Srebrenica massacre occurred?
Most of the violence in Bosnia throughout the War was actually targetting of Bosniaki Muslim civilians at the hands of Othodox&Catholic Christian Serbs & Croats.
Note who lost the most in ethnic geography between 1991 and 2005.
Also, most of the Muslims coming into Bosnia to fight as Muslims were being encouraged to do so by foreign madrasas.

Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Most of Chad’s widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare is a direct result of being routinely invaded by Lybia for thirty years, over the Aozou Strip, and then dealing with issues resulting from the Sudanese civil infighting.

Seriously, it starts off bad, and then gets worse.

DBCooper 12:18 pm 24 Feb 11

Just when you think all Australian politicians are a bunch of pu**ywhipped multiculturalism apologists……….

All immigration should be curtailed.

“As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

United States — Muslim 0.6%

Australia — Muslim 1.5%

Canada — Muslim 1.9%

China — Muslim 1.8%

Italy — Muslim 1.5%

Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

This is happening in:

Denmark — Muslim 2%

Germany — Muslim 3.7%

United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%

Spain — Muslim 4%

Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for

Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:

France — Muslim 8%

Philippines — 5%

Sweden — Muslim 5%

Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%

The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%

Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in:

Guyana — Muslim 10%

India — Muslim 13.4%

Israel — Muslim 16%

Kenya — Muslim 10%

Russia — Muslim 15%

After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%

Chad — Muslim 53.1%

Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and ***ya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

Albania — Muslim 70%

Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%

Qatar — Muslim 77.5%

Sudan — Muslim 70%

After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%

Egypt — Muslim 90%

Gaza — Muslim 98.7%

Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%

Iran — Muslim 98%

Iraq — Muslim 97%

Jordan — Muslim 92%

Morocco — Muslim 98.7%

Pakistan — Muslim 97%

Palestine — Muslim 99%

Syria — Muslim 90%

Tajikistan — Muslim 90%

Turkey — Muslim 99.8%

United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%

Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%

Somalia — Muslim 100%

Yemen — Muslim 100%

Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.”

Standing up in a crowded picture theatre and yelling out “FIRE” may be exercising freedom of speech but it is dangerous and irresponsible.

Not if the theatre is on fire it aint!

True – if the cinema is on fire yelling FIRE may be dangerous (may cause a stampede) but it is true (the information is justified true belief and may also be useful to others) and thus meets the standard for possibly dangerous but justified freedom of speech. If the cinema is not on fire, yelling FIRE is dangerous and false, and is wanton as it exposes people to the possible danger of stampede without conveying any possibly useful information and thus is not justified freedom of speech – Schenck v. United States … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shouting_fire_in_a_crowded_theater

The current dog whistle, latest-menace bigotry falls into the second camp – it exposes good people to the possibility of violence and discrimination through “moral stampede” and is false because it relies on conflating “dangerous exclusionary fundamentalist extremism” with a particular religious viewpoint “Islam”.

I’m happy to shout out “dangerous exclusionary fundamentalist extremism” where ever I see it: Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism et al. Even in cinemas.

Actually it is.

Theatres and other public venues have procedures in place to deal with such eventualities. Usually it’s “Keep calm, and obey the instructions of the authorized individual” s/he’ll be the one in the hard hat with Fire Warden written on it

I think this particular petition is silly (and will die in the arse) because it is favouring one on religion. Does that mean I can collect signatures asking to favour Atheists seeking asylum?

I think Gary’s point is that you can collect signatures for whatever you like.

+1.

I think it’s time for a grown up debate without calling each other names, or letting it be dominated by right/left idiots.

Segregation is the main issue, and that naughty term “melting pot” may be not so naughty after all.

Let’s pretend that such “arbitration services” could or would ever be set up … If someone doesn’t think they’re getting a fair go under arbitration, they could use the services that arbitration is an alternative to – the courts. Right?

Intersting, do you think that muslim women would be allowed to divorce using mainstream Aussie courts if it was against the wishes of thier husbands and their Imam?

Do you really think a woman who may be under virtual house arrest by her husband and his family, who control the bank accounts and all monies could?

Do you think a woman in a foreign land who may not even speak English, and who may not have any contacts outside the family Mosque could just happily stroll into a solicitors, and ask for legal aid to divorce.

Sharia courts can be set up in Aus as “arbitration services”, removing the need for them to comply with the constitution. Within them “judgements” could be settled and cases decided. Of course these “arbitrations” would be ruled under Sharia beliefs and perspectives, so everyone, women included, would get a fair chance of justice. Right?

Instead about complaining about the petition, or that Humphries tabled it, how about someone draw up a petition repudiating all the points in the original petition, get people to sign it, and then get Humphries to table it?

Fight fire with fire.

“Your petitioners ask the Parliament of Australia to:

1. reject any alteration to the Immigration Act, government immigration policies that serves to favour for or against any person of any colour, race, or creed.
2. seek not to discriminate by Act of Parliament or governmental policy against persons of a particular colour, race, or creed, to fully uphold their rights as citizens and residents of this country, and to protect them to the fullest extend of the Law.

Your petitioners humbly request.”

I don’t think we’ll ever see stonings in Sydney, but the UK is struggling with this issue:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/ethics/honourcrimes/crimesofhonour_1.shtml

In Australia, the debate is really more about the slow crumbling of our social cohesion in some places (eg poorer parts of Sydney) and, as always, it’s the more recent wave of migrants that get the blame. In this case, the media have made sure they happen to be defined by religion.

It would be really interesting to debunk this whole thing with some immigration stats. Years ago, there was a big argument about ‘Asian immigration’ (same arguments, but with a focus on Traids and the like rather than Sharia), until the stats were trotted out and it was UK migrants that dominated (without even including backpack overstayers)

So anyone else can lobby for changes to our laws and/or constitution (Republic movement as one example) but Muslims need to keep their ideas to themselves … is that it?

Will it take women being stoned in the streets of Sydney to make you realise that it’s not lobbying that’s the issue here? The push will start off with radicals wanting to rule Muslims by Islamic law, in parallel with Australian law. A couple of stonings here, a dismemberment there, it’ll all start off fairly innocently.

Eventually the police will be overwhelmed with murder and violence cases involving Shariah law, and we’ll be pressed into modifying the constitution just to allow the police to pursue “real” crimes (i.e.: the crimes that are not violence committed in the name of some religion).

Yeah, I know, it’s a pissweak slippery slope argument. Sheer numbers will keep such lobbying under control. Just remember that “they” have a higher fertility rate than “us” 🙂

Haha, I like the last para. And I do understand where you’re coming from, or perhaps, where you’re going. However, at this stage, I think paranoia has well and truly set in.

It’s bloody hard to change the Constitution, for a start.

This situation is revolting.

Canberrans are under-represented in our Federal Parliament as it is – to have the capacity of a Senator for the ACT hijacked by a handful (3) of NSW constituents on such a divisive matter that does not represent the views of the majority of the Canberra population is ridiculous. In the aftermath of the success of the 2011 Multicultural Festival, Senator Humphries position is also in bad taste and not representative.

When Senator Humphries does vote against the flow, it occurs when his vote makes no difference in Parliament. Can he cross the floor? – “yes he can”. But only when the numbers are already shored up on territory rights, euthanasia or civil unions – ie points where he’s tilting at windmills.

Senator Humphries obviously does not care about what Canberrans think – he is worried about what the voters of Lindsay think and Canberra/Fraser are a proxy for him because we have reduced voting power .
