Thinking further on my comments about Jimmy Barnes (see essay Jimmy Barnes Son Reacts to Reclaim Australia), it is timely to reflect on the worrying trend that underscores Jason Barnes’ use of the term “racist”. As I implied back then, the origins of this misguided label are firmly embedded in fascist stratagem.
The escalating exploitation of labels that include: racist, xenophobic, right wing extremist, fascist,
supremacist, anti-gay and homophobic, misogynist, anti-islam and islamophobe, anti-muslim, hate speech, bigot, and (perhaps the least understood of all) unaustralian (and the list goes on), over past months and years are all employed as a divisive means to attack people and groups that ask no more than to engage in free speech and reasoned debate about matters they believe hold serious consequences for Australia and its way of life.
In recent times, pro-islamic, self-proclaimed anti-racist groups, compliant journalists, and sympathetic
supporters repeatedly taunt and insult well intentioned and genuinely concerned organisations such as
Reclaim Australia, Halal Choices, and individuals such as Larry Pickering, Paul Zanetti, Harry Richardson, Viv Forbes, Bernard Gaynor, George Christensen, Pauline Hanson, Jacqui Lambie, as well as anyone who has the courage to express their views through contributions to blog and social website comments.
I refer to organisations and individuals who voice their opinions on matters that cause them genuine
concern, knowing that they should be free to do so without abuse. After all, is this not their right in a
society that espouses democratic privileges?
As George Christensen so eloquently put it (Guardian 19/07/15):
“The apologists of the left, the do-gooders and the politically correct crowd said I shouldn’t address you because you apparently are a crowd of racists, bigots, Islamophobes, extremists, white supremacists, skinheads and Nazis, but when I look here today and I look at this crowd that’s not what I see. What I see is mums and dads who love our country, the Australian culture, the Australian lifestyle and our freedom.”
The above organisations and individuals are named because they are examples of targets for the type of
abuse outlined beforehand. They also hold a number of common beliefs that I share: they stand for
traditional families, our longstanding cultural values; and profess an earnest drive to protect our
institutions, heritage, culture, and history.
In other words, they place their trust in the views and convictions that have been forged and refined out
of the struggles and successes of the past two hundred years. After two centuries, there now exists a
deep-seated, instinctive understanding of what it is that makes us truly Australian. We do not always
express this understanding clearly, but we know immediately when it is being undermined.
The bottom line for many Australians is that no group or individual, no culture, no religion, no cult, no
government, no politician, no corporation, and no flavour of the month idealism is going to take what we trust, believe in, and intrinsically value away from us.
Particularly now that we are beginning to understand how special and precious it is to be a true Australian.
Paradoxically, the antagonists should be heartily thanked for this revelation – for it is through their
actions and words that we have been given the means to compare the pros and cons and from that begin to define what it actually means to be Australian. This is the first and most important step to take – for if we do not know with certainty what it means to be Australian, how can we ever hope to neutralise and ultimately eradicate the illusory ideals that pose a very real and serious threat to our unique way of life?
The next crucial step for combating unwanted or untoward attempts to undermine the ideas or values or traditions that are the foundation of our way of life and the unwritten principles that underpin it, is to know the history of beliefs that have contributed to the antagonist’s current way of thinking. Consider for a moment the following continuum:
marxism -> fascism -> political correctness -> tolerance -> multiculturalism
In essence, this continuum delineates the pathway that has unfolded over the past one hundred years and given rise to the transition from economic and political marxism / fascism to what we now experience as cultural and linguistic marxism / fascism.
By understanding the history and evolution of such ideas and beliefs, it is possible to describe a
continuum of philosophical and psychological twists and convolutions that on the surface appear to pave the way for progressively enlightened thinking, unconditional acceptance, sincere genuine openness, and benign cooperation, but in actual fact obscure the fact that the roots of marxism and fascism not only still exist, they have become more deceptive and destructive than they ever have in the past. The notion of cultural terrorism presents an apt description of what Australia is now dealing with.
Third, we must recognise that the use of spurious terms and false allegations as a means to ridicule and
intimidate are in fact a transparent projection of the mindsets and ideals of the individuals and groups
that unhesitatingly seek to denigrate, belittle, and abuse those who do not fit in with or comply with
their views. In this sense, the destabilisation and potential destruction is aimed not simply at
Australian culture, but also Western culture across the world. Although not constructed of concrete and
enveloped with razor wire and machine guns, nevertheless the potential for complete repression of our way of life is as imposing, yet arguably more difficult to dismantle than a concrete wall.
“Terrorism comes in many forms and the only way combat its manifestations is take time to read and learn all you can”
The immediate threat is not just overt terrorism (from both external and internal insurgents). A much
greater threat is the more insidious and manipulative malignancy of political correctness and
multiculturalism. These ideals become even more alarming when one considers that on the surface the words used for these mindsets appear relatively innocuous when compared to the root beliefs of marxism and fascism. This however, is the revelation that demands greater attention and diligence from all of us.
“The most effective way for terrorists to gain control in this country is to undermine Australian culture”
The attacks that are directed towards true Australians are not simply borne out of their apparent relative benignness, they are in fact a direct facsimile of the intent and destructiveness of the original ideals. What makes the present versions even more societally implosive and culturally ruinous is the simultaneous prevalence of the unsurmountable trinity of narcissism, arrogance , and ignorance. These points will be the subject of later posts.
For now, getting back to the Jimmy / Jason Barnes incident, and subsequently the Farnham reaction, and prior to all this, the Midnight Oil, Williamson, and Schumann episodes, I question just how much these entertainers truly understand the Australian character, or have they simply become adept at tapping into the prevailing psyche to boost their sales?
