The Path to National Suicide

Professor Andrew Fraser

[Editor's note: In July 2005, Andrew Fraser, an Associate Professor of Law at Macquarie University, wrote a short letter to his local paper, the Parramatta Sun, protesting against the immigration of Somalians into Australia, stating that black African communities were known to be associated with higher levels of violence than other populations. Professor Fraser's letter was in response to an article in the 29 June 2005 edition of the Parramatta Sun about Somalian refugees. The newspaper not only published Fraser's letter in their 6 July 2005 issue, but also used it to create their lead news story - attracting the attention of the general public with a large banner headline on the front page, which said "Keep Them Out". Multiculturalists, in their usual neo-fascist style, protested against Prof. Fraser's rights to free speech and demanded that he be sacked; Macquarie University then banned him from teaching any more classes. Prof. Fraser retired from Macquarie University in mid-2006.]

Now that a large number of Sudanese refugees have been settled in the Parramatta-Blacktown area, Anglo-Australians are once again expected to acquiesce in the steady erosion of their distinctive national identity.

Australia, it seems, can no longer remain the homeland of a particular people. Instead, it must become a colony of the Third World.

Thirty years ago, no one in the world had any difficulty identifying an Australian. Today, if the headline in the Sun is to be believed, black Africans and Muslim Afghanis "are Aussies just like" the descendants of the Anglo-Celtic pioneers who settled and built this country.

Community Relations Commissioner Stepan Kerkyasharian declares that "Australians... have a responsibility" to help those on the losing side in Third World civil wars to settle here, wherever and whenever it suits governments and the ever-expanding refugee industry. He assures us that the ethnic and religious conflicts endemic to every other part of the world will be magically dissolved by the state-enforced "commonality of Australianism."

That utopian fantasy is particularly likely to unravel as local African tribal groups grow in size and confidence. Experience practically everywhere in the world tells us that an expanding black population is a sure-fire recipe for increases in crime, violence and a wide range of other social problems.

The fact is that ordinary Australians are being pushed down the path to national suicide by their own political, religious and economic élites. Shutting our eyes to that fact will not make it go away.
