Do we all feel like this!!

Taken form an Australian BB board.

Subject: Australia - The Right to Leave (Applies equally to the U.K.)

Our Country - YOU Have the right - the right to leave !



After hearing about Sydney not wanting to offend other cultures by

putting up Xmas lights; After hearing that the State of South Australia

changed its opinion and let a Muslim woman have her picture on her

driver's license with her face covered;



This prompted this editorial written by an Australian citizen. Published

in an Australian newspaper.

Quote:


IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It

I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some
individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have

experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.



However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the

"politically correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility that

our patriotism was offending others.

I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone

who is seeking a better life by coming to Australia. However, there are a

few things that those who have recently come to our country, and

apparently some born here, need to understand.



This idea of Australia being a multicultural community has served only

to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity.



As Australians, we have our own culture, our own society, our own

language and our own lifestyle. This culture has been developed over

two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and

women who have sought freedom. We speak ENGLISH, not Spanish,

Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language.

Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, Learn the language!

"In God We Trust" is our National Motto. This is not some Christian, right

wing, political slogan. We adopted this motto because Christian men and

women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly

documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our

schools.



If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world

as your new home, Because God is part of our culture. If the Southern Cross

offends you, or you don't like " A Fair Go", then you should seriously

consider a move to another part of this planet.



We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, And we really

don't care how you did things where you came from.



This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow

you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining,

whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our National Motto, or

Our Way of Life,



I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,

"THE RIGHT TO LEAVE".

If you aren't happy here then f#@* off! We didn't force you to come here.

You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted. Pretty easy really,

when you think about it.

Interesting, huh? I figure if we all keep passing this to our friends (and enemies) it will also, sooner or later, get back to the complainers...
END.



I take no credit for the above, just felt others may find it as thoughtful as I did?

Not wildly dissimilar to this email in my inbox a couple of days ago...

tbh this way of thinking gets my vote.

United Kingdom - The Right to Leave

Our Country - YOU Have the right - the right to leave!

After many cities not wanting to offend other cultures
by putting up Christmas lights.

After hearing that the Birmingham council changed its
opinion and let a Muslim woman have her picture on her
driver's license with her face covered.

This prompted this editorial written by a UK citizen.
Published in a British tabloid newspaper.

IMMIGRANTS, NOT BRITAIN'S, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or
Leave It I am tired of this nation worrying about
whether we are offending some individual or their
culture. Since the terrorist attacks on London, we
have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority
of Brits.

However, the dust from the attacks has barely settled
and the "politically correct" crowd begin complaining
about the possibility that our patriotism is offending
others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a
grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by
coming to Britain.

However, there are a few things that those who have
recently come to our country, and apparently some born
here, need to understand.

(and enemies) it will also, sooner or later get back
to the complainers, lets all try, please.


No matter how many times you receive it... please
forward it to all

Maybe the mods can delete the thread then please, as it was not my intention to cause trouble, sorry Vicky.

Just thought it was to the point and i personally agree with it.
Should have thought before posting, sorry again.

That may be so Eddie but i will express my discomfort every time. If i were moderator on this forum this stuff would removed and the poster warned. This is proganda. It is manipulation. It is promoting hatred. Wouldnt have it on my watch. I am greviously sorry that the admin of this forum do not appear to share my feelings. Why bother having an anti-racism policy on the board if no bugger enforces it! And to those of you who say these kinds of postings arent racist i say bullshit and you know it.

This line of thought has NO place on a CAR forum - leave the political bullshit at the door. I have an opinion on such matters but I don`t tell all on a car forum, I`m here for the car talk and frendly banter - not to talk politics................

I dont have an issue with talking politics on a car forum. Lets face it we continually go off the topic of cars. I do however have an issue with postings that are specifically against forum policy.

Politics on forums tend to end in tears. If people don`t like what you say then the "racist" tag rear its head peoples genuine opinions can be perceived to be said in the wrong way. I`m all up for a topical debate, but, I hate politics
