    How Multiculturalism Has Failed Our Youth

    What some Australians... have failed to comprehend, is the fact that never in our recorded history have young white Australians felt compelled to protest about something they perceive is happening to their nation for which they feel absolutely powerless about. There is no precedent for what occurred at Cronulla in 2005, or up and down the east coast on Australia Day 2009, in our history, and the authorities should be asking themselves what has caused so many young white Australians to come out and protest like this.

    T.J. Odgers writes:

    Australia was a very different country to what it is now. When I was growing up in the 1950’s and 60’s, we were, and along with the United States, until the advent of multiculturalism and human rights legislation, the most successful nations to integrate our immigrant populations.

    Never in our federated history have we ever been witness to the outbursts of rage, some would say riots, as witnessed at Cronulla in December, 2005, and Australia Day, 2009, by crowds of young white Australians, who intent on impressing their view onto the rest of us shouted their war cry in unison, “f*** off, we’re full!” The message in the chant being very obvious to most of us, no more foreigners to our shores!

    I read in the Sunday Telegraph, Sunday February 1, 2009, an article by Nick Leys about TV personality, Scott Cam, who was voicing his outrage at what he described as “young racist thugs” using the national flag as a rallying point for their protests. What incensed Cam was his perception that the Australian flag was being soiled by undesirable elements through acts or protests, with a racist and xenophobic undertone, which according to Cam, was demeaning our national symbol and betraying our national character. What Cam failed to realise though, was that by attacking the ‘messenger’ he missed what the ‘messenger’ was trying to tell him, and in the broader picture, the rest of us.

    What some Australians, like Cam, have failed to comprehend, is the fact that never in our recorded history have young white Australians felt compelled to protest about something they perceive is happening to their nation for which they feel absolutely powerless about. There is no precedent for what occurred at Cronulla in 2005, or up and down the east coast on Australia Day 2009, in our history, and the authorities should be asking themselves what has caused so many young white Australians to come out and protest like this. But will the authorities bother with some urgently needed soul searching?

    Our PM wants the biggest absolute numbers of permanent immigrants in Australia's history. I went to a high school where there was only one white female in year twelve which had about three hundred students in that grade. The national flag is a rallying point for our protests because we feel there is no other way to civilly voice it.
