    "We Are Not a Redneck Mob"

    Andrew Bolt
    From: Herald Sun

    IT'S because so many people want to believe Australians are racist that Jaspreet Singh became the latest fake example of our evil.

    Singh, a 29-year-old Indian "student", turned up last month burned to a crisp, with a tale of having been attacked in Essendon by four racists with a can of petrol.

    The story smelled from the start, and not just of premium unleaded. Police even warned it sounded suss, starting with this notion that gangs roam Essendon late at night with cans of petrol, looking for Indians to burn.

    But what followed is a golden example of a phenomenon that's made this country seem like a madhouse lately. If people really want to believe something they will, and facts barely matter. Indeed, facts are then evil.

    That's why so many millions believe in the "stolen generations", for instance, especially when no one can name even 10 children stolen just for being Aboriginal.

    That's why millions more are sure man is heating the world dangerously, even when the planet has cooled for more than eight years.

    And that's why so many of our preacher-teacher class, from academics to ABC broadcasters, have so eagerly insisted that every Australian (except themselves, funnily) is a racist redneck - a smugly self-regarding lie they're now shocked to see is believed of them, too, by an Indian media only too happy to pander to its own chip-on-the-shoulder xenophobes.

    It's the wanting to believe that counts. So here's what we read last month about the bizarre barbecueing of Jaspreet Singh from Indian journalists and Australian cause-pushers.

    Sindh Today, January 9: "Days after India asked Australia to take urgent action against those behind the murder of an Indian student a week ago, a 29-year-old Indian was set ablaze Saturday by four unidentified attackers in Melbourne, putting bilateral ties under strain."

    The New Indian Express, January 11: "Victoria Police say ... there is no reason at this stage to consider this (attack) racially motivated. If the statement had been calculated to enrage, it could hardly have been more provocatively phrased. Perhaps, in Australia, opportunist crimes also involve setting the victim ablaze.

    In any other country, this would prima facie be considered a hate crime, in this case racist."

    The Communist Party of India, January 12: "In the past two weeks, racist attacks on Indians in Australia have claimed two lives (Ranjodh Singh and Nitin Garg) while 29-year-old Jaspreet Singh is now recovering from burns ... "

    The Sydney Morning Herald, January 15: "Aboriginal leader Tom Calma believes the recent attacks on Indian students in Australia could be racially motivated."

    I dislike the term "Red neck" being used in Australia as its actual meaning is

    • noun N. Amer. informal, derogatory a working-class white person from the southern US, especially a politically conservative one.
    Last time i looked this was not America

    in an "old" English Oxford dictionary i have it has something about "American who keeps blacks as slaves"
    Tasmanian twice the heads!!.......twice the intelligence!?

    I could very well be wrong (and I didn't bother to cross-reference), but I believe 'redneck' is a reference to the sun tanning the back of Southern white field hands' necks as they worked. I'd agree it shouldn't be applied outside the US. It is reminiscent of how FDR referred to the Nazis as 'gangsters'. Hitler was quick to point out that it was in the US, not Germany, where 'gangsters' were found.

    Accuracy has never been a strong point of the multicult though. I recently saw Sir Francis Galton referred to as a 'fascist'. That he was no more 'fascist' than Thomas Jefferson is ignored. Such nonsense is just said and repeated without challenge.

    "There are over 33,000 murders in India every year; 8000 of those are actually brides being killed because the dowry's not sufficient."

    The hypocrisy and violence of Indian society is disturbing.
