White South Africans deserve protection from racial violence, too

White South Africans deserve protection from racial violence, too, by Maurice Newman.

If you lean to the left, Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton probably represents one of the most re­cal­citrant, reactionary con­serva­tives in politics today. …

Rather than turn a blind eye, he provocatively profiles the Lebanese Muslim community by singling them out and unfairly tendering evidence to show that “out of the last 33 people who have been charged with terrorist-related offences in this country, 22 of those people are from second and third-generation Lebanese-Muslim background”. …

Now Dutton wants to allow white South African farmers into Australia as part of a special humanitarian program. …

For Australia, South African farmers should make good contributing migrants. Yet when Dutton champions this he is charged with racism, demonstrating just how inane the debate has become.

To say that we want people who want to come here, abide by our laws, integrate into our society, work hard, not lead a life on welfare, is surely to state the obvious.

But [Greens leader Richard Di Natale] and other multicultural warriors are outraged. Is it because crime rates among some of the non-white migrant cohorts they promote are disproportionately higher than for the general population? That the children of those migrants often fail to assimilate? That migrants from North Africa and the Middle East are three times likelier than Europeans and Asian migrants to be out of work in the first five years of settlement? That the fastest growing income-support pension is dispro­portionately drawn by people born in the Middle East?

What Dutton has exposed is the blatant hypocrisy that condemns racism everywhere except when the target is white.

Non-white immigrants overwhelmingly vote left, and the Greens and Labor cannot get enough of them, regardless of whether they immigrate legally or illegally. But white South Africans mainly vote conservative. So the left cries “racism”!
