Crikey! The Wicked Witch from Ipswich, Pauline Hanson, reckons Kevin Andrews may be on to something with his new immigration policy. Needless to say, so does Another Liberal Party (Labor backs African ban, Herald Sun, October 4, 2007). But what’s it all about, anyway? I asked Andrews, and in an exclusive to slackbastard, here’s what he had to say:
Uneducated, violence-prone Africans are called a minority group within the African diaspora. That is not the case as Africans believe that it is their cultural right to solve problems through violence.
I am far from being alone in this belief. It is not a racist or political statement but a statement of cultural difference, and is a fact and fanatical!
Take an inter-departmental committee made up of very senior people from a range of Federal Government departments, some with law degrees, spending time looking at this over a period of time, or when I go out and talk to various groups getting feedback about this all the time. So, there’s a range of evidence in relation to the matter, I don’t think anybody really denies that this is a challenge. It’s really a matter of how we respond to that challenge and putting our head in the sand and pretending it’s not there is not going to help the people concerned and it’s not going to help Australia.
We have already experienced fanatical unemployment and violence by Africans in Australia. It must be stopped!
Australians do not want fanatical and cultural ideals forced on them!
So there you have it. Kevin Andrews: untamed and unashamed.
