Sending them home: whatever it takes : Comments

By Bruce Haigh, published 10/12/2012

Assuming, for one moment, that asylum seekers from Sri Lanka are 'economic refugees', there must be something dreadfully wrong with their economic circumstances to drive them onto boats for a lengthy and perilous sea journey to Australia.

Along with the nature of the Chinese proxy-misgovernment of Sri Lanka, something that seems to have escaped attention is that the Tamil struggle was for the right of a people to self-determination. Wasn't there a war fought, 1939-1945, for the right of peoples to self-determination in their own land? Did anything more come out of that war than a pious UN Declaration so hedged in with get-out clauses as to be no more than a dead letter?

Australian subservience to corrupt Asian rulers has always been legendary - from Foreign Minister Gareth Evans toasting with the sly Ali Alitas the brutal subjugation of East Timor to Foreign Minister Carr physically unable to repeat or even listen to the words "West Papua" on TV in his haste to "correct" it repeatedly to "the two Papuan provinces".

When Britain was at war with thugs trying to crush the right of the Falkland Islanders to self-determination Mrs Thatcher reminded the ambivalent Australian Government that in the light of the geographical position of Australia's Christmas Island it behoved Australia to stand up for a world in which such rights were respected.

I guess the government would consider selling out the Tamils to be mere small change.

Ruddock tried this sort of screening out with a group of Iranians and Iraqis back in 2000 but was stopped by the courts.

He never, ever arbitrarily decided to forcibly deport whole groups of people from just one country based on the word of a war criminal here.

Now Morrison wants to be even worse.

It's is largely because our arrogant, racist politicians egged on by our arrogant racist media seem to believe we are the world's border police.

Beware, where Sri Lanka has been could be where we are going.
The Tamils were boat people from Tamil Nardu in India who came across
from India and expanded until they demanded that the country be divided
north and south.

Does that sound like a bell ringing somewhere ?

Emperor Julian,
Nope, WW2 was fought precisely to prevent people from gaining self determination in their own lands, it was clearly globalist Liberalism and Globalist Socialism who declared war on Nationalism. If you wish to make allowances for Tamil, Palestinian or Afghan Nationalism and allow them their Lebensraum you must give the same courtesy to White Australians, Britons, Germans, Swedes and so on.

To Bazz: The Tamils did not arrive by the boatload from Tamil Nadu but had occupied the northern part of the Ceylon land mass since prehistoric times. In recorded times they were there as early as the second century BC and have been there continuously since. There has been no influx from India since the British brought indentured Tamils to central Ceylon in the 1800s as tea plantation labourers. As Tamils have been severely oppressed, with many pogroms, by the Sinhalese since the British left there is nothing that would bring Tamils flooding in from India. Bazz has invented this scenario to persuade us to duck the truth that the Ceylon Tamil homeland has been invaded and its defenders butchered and that the Australian Government is delivering them back to the invaders.

To Jay: The people of Australia, Britain, Germany and Sweden have self-determination already. The people of Poland and a slew of countries to the east, and a number of countries to the west, did not have self-determination for five years while their homeland was infested by German invaders. They regained self-determination after five years of devastating war against the jackals that had poured over their borders, though it was incomplete until another bunch of occupiers had gone (without seeking to settle their land as far as I know). The purpose of the German Drang nach Osten was to seize territory outside their own homeland to terrorise and expel the inhabitants, replacing them with Germans, as the Sinhalese criminals have done in Tamil territory and incidentally as the Zionists have done in Palestine.

The self-determination of peoples refers to self-determination on their own land, where they were born or invited to stay, not on other peopleís.

Emperor Julian,
You seriously need a history lesson, in the age of the internet such ignorance is inexcusable, Steven Meyer's article on historical brainwashing causing blindness can't come soon enough.
