Photos of Asylum Seeker Policy Protest in Woden

Barcham 29 July 2013 123

Good people.

A collection of people who believe in human rights went for a walk to let Australia know about how they felt about its lack of concern for human rights.

Anna Boydell was kind enough to send us some shot of the event, check them out in the slideshow below.

Asylum seekers are criminals because I’m scared of brown people and I hate Muslims. Is that better?

Enough of your hand-waving and excuses: in 1998, the last time the ABS published these stats, it is apparent that New Zealanders are 5 times more likely to be criminals than Thais.

It is therefore perfectly obvious that we should encourage more migration from Thailand and tighten up on migration from New Zealand to try to screen out the rubbish.

And Comic’s misused apostrophe is something else we should tighten up on. The plural of POS is PsOS.

Charming attitude.

You are going to have to cite the source of the statistic more precisely if you are going to expect anyone to believe it.

Country of Birth is still included in the ABS Prisoners In Australia publication, the 2012 one being here http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/Products/4517.0~2012~Chapter~Prisoner+characteristics,+Australia?OpenDocument so nt at all clear why you are referring back to 1998.

Country of Birth isn’t a good guide to race/ethnicity, but if you want to use CoB as the measure, then go for it, just be aware of its limitations.

The tables even include the “rate” per 100,000 in the general population, and the highest rate is for people born in Nigeria. It should open in Excel if you click on this link http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/subscriber.nsf/log?openagent&45170do001_2012.xls&4517.0&Data%20Cubes&1F86D2860C8662AACA257B400077961C&0&2012&02.04.2013&Previous

NZ-born had a lower rate than Australia-born.

Now, what was your point?

There is far more white trash POS in Australia than there is brown trash POS.

Source?

HACS

Australian correctional services

Links to this information please. Or you could just admit you’re a racist.

Wtf? How am I a racist?

Well you’ve failed again to back up your racially based proposition for a start.

Seemingly it’s OK for you to ask every other commentator to back up their opinions with sources but you don’t have to?

No no no, the more important thing here is why you think I am a racist.

What part of racially based proposition with no evidence don’t you get?

If you can’t back it up with evidence, the aforementioned statement is racist. You’ve said your sources are HACS and Australian correctional services.

I’m sure you just wouldn’t have made those sources up right? Not the ‘source’ king.

Please post why you think I am a racist?

I just did or do you struggle to read too?

Well, unless that is, you think that people who make racist statements aren’t racist which would be a whole different argument.

And it’s time to stop your diversions. For the third time, answer the question, Source?

Nope, not until you tell me why you think I am racist? I am a white Australian who believes in equal rights for all races.

Fact is, there is far more white POS’ in Australia than brown POS’.

To deny that, means you are the one making the outlandish claim and therefore you are the one who needs to provide evidence.

Yep that’ll do me. Your credibility =0

Me being unable to refute a ‘fact’ that you’ve made with zero evidence is somehow an outlandish claim by me. You truly are a fool. I’m out.

The problem with Kiwis coming here is too many of the idiots think they’re ‘Jake’ from “Once Were Warriors” – and end up in all sorts of sh1t once they get here.

There is far more white trash POS in Australia than there is brown trash POS

The definition of racism from the oxford dictionary

the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races: theories of racism

prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior

By suggesting that there are more white than brown POS then one could interpret that that browns are superior to whites because there are less of them who are POS. Of course there is the per capita aspect to consider which hasn’t been mentioned nor has CGN provided us with any statistics to support his claim. In the scheme of things, however, it’s a fairly innocuous comment and i suspect CGN is merely trolling.

WRT to CGN trolling, he has smarts but not that many…

CraigT CraigT 7:29 am 03 Aug 13

Examples (principal word in bold):

He now has two mothers-in-law.
(plural of mother-in-law)

They were visited by the Knights Templar.
(plural of Knight Templar)

It was a sight to see four lieutenant generals fight it out at the table.
(plural of lieutenant general)

Jerry had attended over a dozen courts-martial.
(plural of court-martial / Also, see third example below.)

There is no common definition of who is, and who is not, a POS and therefore no authoritative source can reasonably be expected; and you know it.

How about “Incarceration rates, by Ethnicity”?

I reckon that would be a pretty good way to work out where the most PsOS are.

Any guesses as to whether the ABS still keeps those stats?

Nope. 1998 they decided the cause of multiculturalism was not being served by informing the public as to the respective contributions different cultures were making to the pool of PsOS in this country.

Of course, this is very racist of me, but I can’t help pointing ou that immigrants from Thailand (as at 1998) were only 50% as likely to commit crimes that led to gaol as our home-grown population.
And of course, it is very, very racist of me to conclude that I should support increased immigration from Thailand as a result fo their demonstrated low rate of being PsOS.

And it would obviously be very, very, very racist of me to suggest that the increased immigration from Thaliand should come at the expense of immigration from New Zealand, considering the ABS stats on how well( er, badly) New Zealanders behave after moving here….

ABS has always struggled to define and record the concept of ethnicity. They don’t collect it in the Census, so even if they got information from prisons, they wouldn’t be able to calculate meaningful statistics. You can’t use country of birth, because so many people of minority ethnicity are born here, and so many people born in NZ for example are ethnically Maori or Pacific Islander. And if you look at WA or NT prison statistics, for example, you’ll find a huge over-representation of people of Indonesian background. Can you guess why? I’ll give you a clue – it’s actually right back on topic.

Just look around you

Just did.

A few whitish people, a few brownish people and one very orange female (tanning incident).

No POS to be seen.

Then look in the mirror

Nope still no POS there either although I did see one in the toilet bowl a while ago.

Got anything serious or are your logic and debating skills as retarded as your attempted insults?
