Are the terroists and extremists slowly winning

With the cancellation of some Anzac marches, you would have to say that the terrorists and extremists are slowly getting their way here in Oz.

Apart from the fact that it is a disgrace that our governments refuse to provide funding for the additional security needed, preferring to waste money on unethical personal travel, as the latest example, it just goes to show how stupid we have been as a nation to allow this garbage into our once peace loving nation.

Shame on all officials who have supported the importation of extremists and terrorists into our nation as it is rather ironic to think the ones we were going to honour, were those who fought for the very freedoms we have slowly deprived ourselves of.

What a politically correct hamstrung nation we have become.

Is it really that bad, mate? Are you sure that you are not looking for really bad stuff that isn't actually there? I've always made it clear what I think of Muslims, multiculturalism, the loony Left, gutless politicians and political correctness. I take careful note of what's going on. But I have never seen any indication that 'terrorists' are winning in Australia. Perhaps I am insulated by the Great Dividing Range too much? In SA there are only 1.7 million of us, but we have same sort of people here, in proportion. We don't have the trouble and strife you Eastern Staters seem to be having all the time. The same applies to WA,and the NT. Sure that you are not blaming the wrong people over your way?

Butch, to be brutally honest your assertion that we were at some point in history a "peace loving nation" defies the facts and is a load of rubbish. Truthfully Australia has a long history of sticking its nose into other peoples wars, and very few of them have had much to do with freedom, ours or there's.

From 1901;

South African War (Boer War), 18991902
China (Boxer Rebellion), 190001
First World War, 191418
Second World War, 193945
Occupation of Japan, 194651
Korean War, 195053
Malayan Emergency, 195060
Indonesian Confrontation, 196366
Vietnam War, 196275
First Gulf War, 199091
Peacekeeping, 1947 to present

You keep believing it, if it makes you feel good.

Dear rehctub,

Firstly the Anzac marches will go ahead. The government
and the local councils are sharing the costs.
Secondly extremists (many born here) are a small
minority of our population. We do have a legal framework
to deal with them and now even stronger safety measures
are being taken. The reality is that most people in this
country do get on with each other. Extremists winning?
I don't think so, neither do my neighbours. As a matter
of fact I don't know any "extremists," do you?
Don't believe everything that's put out by the main
stream media. They deal with sensationalistic news that
sells their papers, not reality.

There are too many people looking for something 'bad' these days. Most of the crap that happens in Australia and the world doesn't touch us. We all have a tendency to take things too personally. I mean, do we really need 'security' so that a few people can march on Anzac Day? Is there really a threat to our way of life from anything or anyone, except for a few single events perpetrated by some nutter, easily dealt with by everyday, general duties plods. Hey, we even turned the census debacle into an international conspiracy, when it was just down to our usual political incompetence and lack of technical savvy. Most of us still cabable of filling in a form and posting it had no trouble with the census, and let the root of the problem - government - worry about the damage,if there is any.

Myself - I have decided that I DO NOT live in a 'multicultural society' as the PC naggers say I do. I see the 'other' vaguely and rarely, particularly in the form of an Indian taxi driver (generally more polite and helpful than the ones I used to travel with) but, generally, my life hasn't changed one bit.

To be honest, I was girding my loins for arguments about the 'alternative' lamb add for Australia Day. But, when I saw it on TV, I laughed. My first thought was of a pack of unregistered, mongrel dogs, off-leash on a beach, barking "aren't we all boat people?". These people are not hurting me by making morons of themselves. Thank God I don't live in Sydney. End of story. My one new year resolution is to try not to get knotted up by anything, real or imagined, that has no effect on me whatsoever.

Hi Foxy, as you always do, you tell it how it is, not some half baked nonsense that others wish to promote.

Butch said "Shame on all officials who have supported the importation of extremists and terrorists into our nation"

I honestly know of no such officials of any moderate political persuasion, Labor, Liberal, Greens, or public servants etc who have done any such thing. No person with authority has ever countenanced bring extremists and terrorists into Australia.
