On Target

11 September 2009 Thought for the Week:

Obama: The Last Emperor. Professor Igor Panarin, whose book “The Crash of America” is just out, claims that by November the book will be yesterday’s news. Panarin believes President Obama will lead his country to a breakup. Panarin compares Obama to former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev.

“Obama is “the president of hope”, but in a year there won’t be any hope. He’s practically another Gorbachev – he likes to talk but hasn’t really managed to do anything. Gorbachev at least had been a secretary of a regional communist party administration, whereas Obama was just a social worker. His mentality is totally different. He’s a nice person and talks nicely – but he’s not a leader and will take America to a crash. When Americans understand that – it will be like a bomb explosion,” Panarin said, speaking to journalists during the unveiling of his book.

CANADIAN HATE SPEECH LAW 'UNCONSTITUTIONAL '

Hate speech law declared unconstitutional: rights tribunal, by Joseph Brean, National Post -
Source: https://www.nationalpost.com/story-printer.html?id=1954734

“The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal has ruled that Section 13, Canada's much maligned human rights hate speech law, is an unconstitutional violation of the Charter right to free expression because of its penalty provisions. The decision released this morning by Tribunal chair Athanasios Hadjis appears to strip the Canadian Human Rights Commission of its controversial legal mandate to pursue hate on the Internet, which it has strenuously defended against complaints of censorship.

It also marks the first major failure of Section 13(1) of the Canadian Human Rights Act, an anti-hate law that was conceived in the 1960s to target racist telephone hotlines, then expanded in 2001 to the include the entire Internet, and for the last decade used almost exclusively by one complainant, activist Ottawa lawyer Richard Warman…”

Ingrid Zundel, wife of Ernst Zundel languishing in a German prison, wrote of the decision:

“Marc Lemire, a Canadian freedom of speech fighter and computer genius, has won a decisive victory against the odious Human Rights Tribunal and its political toadies.
The Canadian Hate Speech Law, known as Section 13, has been today declared unconstitutional. This law was used against Ernst Zundel in his five-year battle to protect Free Speech on the Net. Ernst's then attorney, Barbara Kulaszka, who was instrumental in today's victory, did most of the major legal work assisting Mark Lemire, as did former Zundel Defense Attorney, *Doug Christie - and others.
Today's victory means that Ernst was legally harassed and hounded for more than two decades through all the various courts and Human Rights Tribunal hearings in Canada on the basis of three unconstitutional laws - the "False News" law, (declared unconstitutional and stricken from the books in 1992) the National Security Act, declared unconstitutional after his deportation to Germany in 2005, and now the Hate Speech law!
And yet, Ernst Zundel is still languishing in prison. Will it be up to him to clean up Germany's repressive censorship laws as well? Don't be surprised…”

Editor’s comment:
I had the privilege of meeting Canadian barrister Douglas Christie when he came to Adelaide in the early 1990s. He was on an Australian tour organised by the Australian League of Rights. The purpose of the tour was to warn fellow Australians that the type of legislation being promoted for alleged ‘war crimes’ by elderly ‘new-Australians’ would lead to the destruction of the value system upon which western Civilisation was founded.
In the Introduction to “The Path of Legal Warfare” by Keltie Zubko, *Douglas Christie says he believed that the legal battle he waged in the Canadian War Crimes trial on behalf of the Hungarian-born Imre Finta, would in retrospect, be seen as an outstanding landmark in our struggle to survive as a western Civilisation.

Further essential reading:
“The Path of Legal Warfare” by Keltie Zubko, $5.00 plus postage.
In the chapter “Under the Red Star” *Douglas Christie, who had to travel to Hungary where evidence was taken about the alleged crimes, relived his frightening experiences which he, as a Canadian, had ever had; that was to watch Canadian legal proceedings carried out underneath the communist red star, in a courtroom that was the scene of many so-called trials…”

“Here We Go Again” by Doug Collins, $22.00 plus postage.
Canadian columnist Doug Collins took on the politically correct in his media columns. For his troubles he was forever in hot water. This book is a compendium of columns from the writer that the new age of censors tried to silence. A good read.

A 'SNAKEHEAD WHO MADE MILLIONS

from Paul Fromm, Canada:
Infamous Snakehead or ‘people smuggler for profit’ Big Sister Ping made over $40-mllion dollars illegally smuggling Chinese into Canada and often on to the U.S. Luckily, she was finally apprehended and sentenced for her heartless greed in the U.S. and drew a 35-year sentence.

When six boatloads of Chinese illegals hit the B.C. coast in 1999, then Immigration Minister Elinor Caplan announced that she did not see her role as a gatekeeper and invoked the ethnic cry of "Remember the St. Louis" to do very little. She did inveigh against people smugglers and promised stiff sentences of up to 10 years. No snakehead in Canada has ever served more than a few months. However, immigration critics like Brad Love have drawn 18-month sentences for merely criticizing the invasion.

Toronto STAR - Mitch Potter, Washington Bureau Aug 09, 2009:
Six-year-old Haw Wang nearly made it, all the way from China's Fujian Province to the Hotel Ibis in Toronto and finally to the banks of the Niagara River, one moonless night in the dead of winter. America was within sight.
Minutes later, she was swallowed by the river's icy waters as the flimsy vinyl raft she was in capsized, spilling its human cargo. The smuggler scrambled back to the Ontario shore, leaving four fellow travellers to drown. The Niagara eventually yielded three of the bodies; the little girl's was never found.

Though she perished a generation ago, Haw Wang's story is revived in the pages of The Snakehead, American writer Patrick Radden Keefe's fresh and comprehensive telling of the often ruthless criminal underworld that carries untold thousands of destitute migrants from rural China into the land of opportunity.

Haw was to have been reunited with her mother, who had gone first to seek her under-the-table fortune in New York City's Chinatown. And as Radden Keefe tugs on the facts behind the child's demise, they all lead to the door of Sister Ping, by far the most renowned of the "Snakeheads" who populate this epic account of the global human smuggling networks.

And here is where the tale gets complicated, as the author discovered during his own journeys from New York to Canada to Hong Kong and Bangkok and finally to Fujian itself, the epicentre of the complex Snakehead enterprise, where he found villages nearly empty now because everyone has left for America.

Back in Fujian – and, indeed, in the Fujianese sections of Chinatowns from Toronto to New York – Radden Keefe discovered that Sister Ping is almost universally revered as a folk hero. A Robin Hood, even. She changed thousands of lives for the better.
After a 10-year manhunt, Sister Ping was captured, tried and, in 2006, sentenced to 35 years in jail. Now 62, the woman who amassed an estimated $40 million in delivery fees from undocumented migrants will likely die behind bars. An arch-villain, full stop. "She is not the unalloyed heroine and benefactress that you hear about in Chinatown. Robin Hood didn't make $40 million. She may have incidentally helped create better lives, but she wasn't motivated by anything so altruistic," Radden Keefe told the Toronto Star in an interview in Washington.

"But I also don't see her as the uncomplicated arch-villain. She took enormous risks. People died. But, if you go and talk to people in Chinatown, they will say, ‘We knew the risks. You were lucky enough to be born in the U.S.A., so you don't appreciate the notion of assuming risk.' They are willing to risk death. And man, that's kind of tough to wrap your mind around."

This is hardly just a Chinese trait, the will to get there whatever the cost, or die trying, Radden Keefe says. Even in recession, an estimated 300 million migrants work abroad today, including an undocumented population larger than Canada's. And, if the global economic crisis slowed the flow, the price has gone up. Today's Snakehead rate per head is $75,000 (U.S.), more than double what it was in the early '90s, when Haw drowned in the Niagara. The book takes us through Sister Ping's life and times, including her role in the saga of the Golden Venture, the tramp steamer that shocked America in the summer of 1993 when it ran aground off New York, spilling 286 illegal Chinese immigrants into the surf.

The one piece Radden Keefe says never quite figured in the Snakehead web, which spanned China, Southeast Asia, Africa, Central America and Mexico, was Canada itself. Though Vancouver and Toronto were useful cities for Sister Ping in her early years of operation, given the ease with which she was able to smuggle illegals by air from Hong Kong, "I still wonder why they wanted to then risk their lives by going that extra step to the U.S.," he said.
"By making it as far as Toronto – a big, cosmopolitan, free metropolis with a relatively large Chinese population and, indeed, a pretty good size Fujianese population – you would think they would say, `Okay, we made it.' So why would so many continue, some to the extreme of getting on a pathetic vinyl raft in the middle of the night in January? It's a slightly insane undertaking.

"One reason is that the United States holds a kind of mystique for the Fujianese. And it was exaggerated by weird feedback loops, where people would call home and play up their new life. Even though New York wasn't really the promised land for many, they never wanted to tell people, `Actually, I work all the time. And my boss withheld my wages. And I got hurt on the job, but because I'm illegal there's no recourse for me.'"
While The Snakehead avoids any pat moral assessment of Sister Ping, it frames her as "a creature of her moment in history – an exponent of free-market capitalism run amok in an ever more borderless world."
Bribery was her primary stock in trade, and from Guatemala to Belize to Bangkok there were always willing takers on the margins of officialdom, hands outstretched. Corruption in just a single jurisdiction along the pipeline is all that is required for an easy flow throughout.

"There's always a way across, especially in the age of global trade and constant movement of people and goods. The irony is that even when border enforcement tightens, the price for the Snakehead goes up. People who might have tried to cross on their own suddenly are forced to go to the professionals," said Radden Keefe.
But there are fewer Chinese takers at such daunting prices, not least because after two decades of outward flow, the destination for future prosperity now is in flux, he says.
First, it was China's own explosive economic boom that sparked a change of direction, creating the largest internal migration in modern history, from inland China to the coastal cities. But even that flow is reversing today, as factories slow down or stop altogether and their workers ponder the next change of scenery.

"Do they go back to their villages or do they pay Snakeheads to take them abroad?" asked Radden Keefe. "One thing is for certain: The migrant labour market in China is extremely sensitive to the differential in job opportunities. It responds quickly, and if the difference is stark enough, people will move. To the U.S., to Canada, to Australia, to Japan – you name it. Any place that looks like opportunity is better."


PERHAPS 'WE SHOULD EAT THE POLITICALLY CORRECT?

by James Reed
Swift once wrote a satirical piece where he said that the solution to poverty was for the poor to engage in eating their babies. The June 2009 edition of Quadrant Online has an interesting article by ecological writer Michael Kile “The Aztec Solution”. Putting it short and sweet, Kile says that “evidence” indicates that ancient Aztec human sacrifice was a strategy to prevent dangerous climate change, according to Aztec cosmology. And so human sacrifice “is clearly a potent forcing agent in climate equilibrium.”

Thus Kile concludes that in the spirit of eco-spirituality, human sacrifices should be revived. “In Australia, the government should offer generous grants to [humane human sacrifice] dependents; issue free {securitised} sacrificial credits to working families; create a New Order of the Bleeding Heart; and restructure the now redundant carbon emissions trading scheme as the Human Pollution Reduction Scheme.”

In principle I agree with the idea of humane human sacrifice provided it is the politically correct elites who line up to make the ultimate expression of guilt, by giving their lives to the sun god “Sol”. Perhaps the universities could be made into “temples of sacrifice” for that is essentially what they are now! Let social crediters inherit the earth!
But we cannot contemplate eating the politically correct – Christianity, morals and civilisation aside – for I am sure that their taste would be as vile and as bitter as their deeds.


CHINA SHOWS HOW TO HANDLE LAWYERS OR DOES IT?

by Peter West
First I must declare my personal bias and bigotry. I hate lawyers. My favourite quote from Shakespeare is: “The first thing we must do is kill all lawyers.” (No, I don’t advocate violence, that is too good for them.) I also tell lawyer jokes. Example: what do lawyers use as a contraceptive? Give up? Their personalities! You can find plenty more like this on the internet. Most people who are not lawyers, hate lawyers. Even the mighty Chinese hate lawyers. (The Australian 7/8/08 p.31) Maybe even lawyers hate lawyers!

Chinese Taxation Department raids have closed down a legal-aid group Open Constitution Initiative and one lawyer Xu Zhiyong has disappeared and nobody knows where he is. Under the pretence of tax evasion other civil rights groups are being targeted. The licences of prominent human rights lawyers have been cancelled. If this happened in Australia, where most pro bono work is for migrants, refugees and politically correct groups, I would celebrate. But not here: this is real oppression by a nation whose leaders are still carrying on the flame of Chairman Mao.

The Communist Chinese government tried to force the National Press Club into cancelling a nationally televised speech by Rebiya Kadeer, Uighur leader. (The Australian 11/8/09 p.1)
This is a very early sign of this oppressive government beginning to flex its muscles. We should view all these signs with great concern, for however bad our lawyers are, the Communist Chinese government is far worse.


REVEREND PETER ADAM 'S P.C. HIGH MORAL GROUNDER

by James Reed
The Reverend Peter Adam has said that all Europeans “and others” should leave Australia if indigenous people want it, as restitution for the sin of genocide. Here is the amazing quote which appeared in The Australian 12/8/09:

“It would in fact be possible, even if very difficult and complicated, for Europeans and others to leave Australia. I am not sure where we would go, but that would be our problem. No recompense could ever be satisfactory because what was done was so vile so immense, so universal, so pervasive, so destructive, so devastating and so irreparable. The prosperity of our churches has come from the proceeds of crime. Our houses, our churches, our colleges, our shops, our sports grounds, our parks, our courts, our parliaments, our prisons, our hospitals, our roads are stolen property.”

Now there are many responses that can be made to this. First, taking the higher moral ground – should Holocaust victims be forced to move? Second, we all know that Rev Adam will lead the charge to leave Australia, but will even leaving be adequate trans-generational punishment for the vile sin of genocide? Isn’t capital punishment needed – perhaps execution for all of us!!!

Maybe the kind Chinese will do this, and the Chinese can live in peace and harmony with the Aborigines, while extracting mineral resources.
Perhaps the Chinese could contribute to ecological sustainability, by moving their most polluting industries here. That, I am afraid is what Rev. Adam’s proposal leads to. If Anglo Saxons did not settle here, then Asians would have.


I HATE CAF SOCIETY

from Len the Cleaner
I always think of gay Donny Dunstan while trying to plot a course around some Adelaide city streets. You see, Adelaide has narrow footpaths, and as part of Don’s legacy of transforming Adelaide into the “Athens of the South” cafes have now taken over footpaths. There people sit, with coffee and high-saturated-fat food, breathing car exhaust fumes. These uni-lefty types think that they are chic, cool, trendy… whatever. I just see future lung cancer for them.

According to a story in Murdoch’s The Australian “Business is booming among café society” (7/8/09 p.1). I don’t worry about unemployment as the demand for café workers is ever-expanding. But now turn to page 25 of the same paper and we find: “Cafes’ Laptop Love Affair Over”.
In the United States things are much worse for café society, so bad that the laptop seat surfers who cradle a cup of coffee for six hours while writing their uni essays are being told to ‘move on’. Covers on electrical plugs now decorate the cafés.

It’s a good sign. I hate the falseness and intellectual nonsense and arrogance that café society brings. I hate the – usually – trendy, leftist people. Personally, I would like to see all these cafes’ go bankrupt.

Editor’s note: You sound quite jaded and cynical Len. It could be the wet, cold, winter has added to your world-weary outlook. Cheer up, ‘Spring’ is sending out all her signals that she is bursting forth with new life.
Turn down King William Street instead of trying to navigate your way through the café uni-lefty’s. Take a deep breath, experience the new life pulsating through Adelaide’s parklands. Spend time under the trees, sit in the grasses, breathe in the scents of the flowers; they are all bursting with new life. Breathe it all in, fill up to overflowing - and replenish your soul.


HOW MANY SLAVES DO YOU OWN HENRY?

from “Fred on everything”:
Henry Louis Gates, Jr. is the Harvard professor who got arrested by Cambridge Police recently. Fred Reed was a police reporter for one of the large Washington newspapers. He now writes a column which can be googled: "Fred on Everything."
Fred published a weekly online column in which he got to say the things his editors would never, ever, have let him write in the paper. His stuff is iconoclastic and various articles have probably offended everyone, regardless of political orientation.

So, with the warning that "This is definitely not politically correct," here comes Fred..... The following is an essay regarding the failings of a system and a culture. Please note that he elegantly describes the mood of many Americans and he does so without prejudice.

Slavery Reparations… by Fred Reed!
“On the Web I find that Henry Louis Gates Jr., the chairman of Afro-American Studies at Harvard, is demanding that whites pay reparations to blacks. It's because of slavery, see. He is joined in this endeavour by a gaggle of other professional blacks. I guess he'll send me a bill, huh?
I feel like saying, "Let me get this straight, Hank. I'm slow. Be patient. You want free money because of slavery, right? I don't blame you."
I'd like free money too. Tell you what. I believe in justice. I'll give you a million dollars for every slave I own, and another million for every year you were a slave. Fair enough?

But tell me, how many slaves do you suppose I have? In round numbers, I mean... say to the nearest dozen. And how long were you a slave? Oh. In other words, I owe you reparations for something that I didn't do and didn't happen to you. That makes sense. Like lug nuts on a birthday cake.
Personally, I think you owe me reparations for things you didn't do and never happened to me. I've never been coated in Dutch chocolate and thrown from the Eiffel Tower. I'll bet you've never done it to anyone. I want reparations. Kind of silly, isn't it? But if we're going to talk about reparations, that's a street that runs in two directions.

You want money from me for what some other whites did to some other blacks in another century? How about you guys paying whites reparations for current expenses caused by blacks? Not long ago blacks burned down half of Los Angeles, a city in my country. Cities are expensive, Hank. Build one sometime and you'll see what I mean.
Whites had to pay taxes to repair Los Angeles for you. You can send me a check (cheque). Now, yes, I know you burned LA because you didn't like the verdict in the trial of those police officers. Well, I didn't like the verdict in the Simpson trial. But I didn't burn my house and loot Korean grocers, or burn down a city. Over the years blacks have burned a lot of American cities: Newark, Detroit, Watts, on and on.
Now add in the fantastic cost over the years of welfare in all its forms, the cost of all of those police calls people had to make, or cells and jails and security systems in department stores. I can't live in the capital city of my own country because of crime committed by blacks. Toss in the cultural cost of lowering standards in everything for the benefit of blacks. See what I mean?

Now, I'd view things differently if you said to me, "Fred, blacks can't get anywhere in a modern country without education. We know that. We need better schools, smarter teachers, harder courses, books with smaller pictures and bigger words. Can you help us?" I'd say, "Hallelujah! Hoo-ahh! Not just yes, but hell yes. Let's sell an aircraft carrier and get these folks some real schools and get them into the economic main-stream.' I'd say it partly because it would be the right thing to do, and partly because I'd like to add you guys to the tax base. The current custodial state is expensive.

I'd just love for blacks to study and learn to compete and stop burning places. But is it going to happen? You may not believe it, but I, and most whites, don't like seeing blacks as miserable and screwed up as they are. I spend a fair amount of time in the projects. Those places are ugly. It's no fun watching perfectly good kids turn into semi-literate dope dealers who barely speak English. It just plain ain't right.

But, Hank, what am I supposed to do about it? I can't do your children's homework. At some point, people have to do things for themselves, or they don't get done. Maybe it's time. I'll tell you what I see out in the world, Hank... I think blacks are too accustomed to getting anything they want by just demanding it. True, it has worked for over half a century. Get a few hundred people in the street, implicitly threaten to loot and burn, holler about slavery, and sadly the Great White Cash Spigot turns on. Thing is, whites don't much buy it any longer.

Most recognize that what once was a civil-rights movement has become a shakedown game. Few people still feel responsible for the failings and inadequacies of blacks. Political correctness keeps the lid on -- but everyone knows the score. Which scares me, Hank.
On one hand, blacks hate whites and incline toward looting and burning. (The whites you hate are the ones who marched in the civil-rights movement. Ever think about that?)
On the other hand, whites quietly grow wearier and wearier of it. Not good Hank.

On the third hand (allow me three hands, for rhetorical convenience), blacks keep demanding things. As I write, you demand reparations for slavery.

Blacks in Oklahoma (I think it was) want money for some ancient race riot. Other blacks reject the Declaration of Independence.
Blacks in New York hint broadly at burning and looting over a trial, yet more demand the elimination of the Confederate flag, and the federal equal opportunity apparatus, which means blacks want to sue Silicon Valley for not hiring nonexistent black engineers. That's a lot of demanding for one month Hank. What happens if whites ever say "No"?

Now, how about you? You've got a cushy job up there at Harvard, and you can hoot and holler about what swine and bandits whites are. I guess it's lots of fun, and you get a salary for it to boot. But don't you think you might do blacks more good if you told them to complain less and study more?

For example, if you want blacks to work in Silicon Gulch, the best approach might be to find some really smart black guys, and get them to study digital design - not Black Studies (as you teach). That's how everybody else does it. It works. Then blacks wouldn't feel left out, and racial tensions would decline. Sound like a plan?

Just out of curiosity, how many hours a week do professors of Afro-American Studies spend in the projects, encouraging poor black kids to study real-life sho-nuf subjects?”
