Costello To Muslims ~ Accept Our Values Or Leave Aussie Land


Australian treasurer calls for Muslim hardliners to lose citizenship


Australian Treasurer Peter Costello, favourite to become the country's next leader, has called for Muslim extremists to be stripped of their citizenship while denouncing multiculturalism as "mushy and misguided".

Costello demanded new citizens accept Australian laws rather than attempt to live by alternative codes such as sharia (Islamic) law, saying it was a sign of respect in the same way that taking off one's shoes before entering a mosque showed deference towards Islam.

"If you have strong objections to walking in your socks, don't enter the mosque," Costello told a function in Sydney late Thursday. "If you have strong objections to (Australian) values, don't come to Australia."

Government backbencher Danna Vale also said last week that Australians were aborting themselves "almost out of existence" and the country could become a Muslim nation within 50 years as a result.

This is a GREAT article. You can read the article here and also the Muslims reaction to this.

Wild Thing's comment......
Just let ONE American politician grow a set of stones and say the same thing, and the liberals would be foaming at the mouth.

We did have a politician like that, a President, Teddy Roosevelt.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all. This is just as true of the man who puts "native" before the hyphen as of the man who puts German or Irish or English or French before the hyphen. Americanism is a matter of the spirit and of the soul. Our allegiance must be purely to the United States. We must unsparingly condemn any man who holds any other allegiance. But if he is heartily and singly loyal to this Republic, then no matter where he was born, he is just as good an American as any one else.
The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic. The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans; and there ought to be no room for them in this country. The man who calls himself an American citizen and who yet shows by his actions that he is primarily the citizen of a foreign land, plays a thoroughly mischievous part in the life of our body politic. He has no place here; and the sooner he returns to the land to which he feels his real heart-allegiance, the better it will be for every good American. There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
For an American citizen to vote as a German-American, an Irish-American, or an English-American, is to be a traitor to American institutions; and those hyphenated Americans who terrorize American politicians by threats of the foreign vote are engaged in treason to the American Republic.

Bob describes the greatest threat to this country. The end of an acceptance of common culture, and the resistance to being that new thing, an American.

It's also the terminal disease of Western Europe. At the same time Europeans are underming and eliminating national identity, they're expecting Third World Muslims to assimilate. To assimilate to what? Idiots.

More reason to love our Aussie brethren. They seem to be like the U.S. was 60 to 100 years ago. Before the Lie-berals and their insane ideas took over. Maybe the book/movie "On the Beach" was more prescient than ever believed?

The Aussies are beginning to take the first step against the insidious disease of islamoculture. Europe is worried about avian flu, but that pales compared to the cancer of islam.

We need to at least begin by allowing no more immigration by muslims into the US
