Cronulla riots: Left-wing, politically correct journalists slag off Aussie patriotism
Martin Lehmann - 13 December 2005
The anti-Australian, left-wing mainstream media are having a field day blackening Australia's reputation following the Cronulla riots.
Tension had been building for months as gangs of Lebanese swarmed on to Sydney's Cronulla beach, jostling elderly patrons, abusing Australian families and threatening to "rape Aussie sluts" for wearing bikinis. They did not come to enjoy the beach in the Australian tradition. They came to flout their disrespect for Australian culture and for Australian law and order.
Matters came to a head the previous weekend when two young Australian lifesavers were bashed by a Lebanese gang.
Following a series of text messages, 5,000 Australians turned up last Sunday at Cronulla determined to "reclaim the beach".
Unfortunately, the combination of alcohol, hot sun and a group of neo-nazi infiltrators turned the demonstration into a raging mob. There were disturbing scenes of mob violence and attacks on police and ambulance officers.
Meanwhile the Lebs were planning a speedy retaliation. After dark, more than 40 carloads of Lebanese thugs descended on nearby Maroubra and indulged in an orgy of smashing car windscreens, jumping on car roofs, smashing shop windows and beating up anyone of Anglo appearance.
One man was stabbed in the back in a cowardly attack.
How did the print media portray it? All the emphasis was on the "racist" attacks by Australians. Very little mention of the Lebanese thuggery.
I trawled through the websites of the mainstream media next day, including The Australian, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Daily Telegraph and the Herald Sun. There were dozens of pictures of the Cronulla riots but not one picture of any of the dozens of car and shopfronts trashed by the Lebanese gangs. There were no pictures of the Leb gang members, not even a picture of the man who was rushed off to hospital with a Leb knife protruding from his back.
The mainstream media, particularly the print media, are an absolute disgrace.
The journalists portrayed the Cronulla riots as "racist" attacks but the lebs orgy of destructions is dubbed a "retaliation" attack.
The Leb problem has been simmering for years, but the journos have applied a Maxwell Smart cone of silence. People like ex-NSW detective Tim Priest have been warning of the dangers of Lebanese criminal gangs for years.
Last night the detestable Ellen Fanning interviewed Prime Minister John Howard on Nine's A Current Affair. In an incredibly biased piece of journalism Fanning desperately tried to get Howard to say that the Cronulla riots were racist and indicative of racism in Australia. Howard, to his credit was having none of it.
Even the electronic media refer to Cronulla as "race riots" and the Lebs violence as "ethnic violence".
If the media had done their job they would have exposed the looming problem with Lebanese lack of respect for law and order months or even years ago and perhaps avoided Sunday's confrontation.
It is no wonder that journalists are so despised.
It appears the writer believes that within the breast of every Lebanese (Christian or Muslim) there beats the heart of a potential terrorist.
They can ticket the Stoatmobile anytime they like ((((sigh)))
That is some funny stuff. I'd like to see them try and take Australia.... I would like to see them try with everything they got so the Aussies can unleash the dogs.
Supported by local shop-keepers, the Meter Maids go round the streets of Surfers Paradise with coins for the meters so that the tourists DON'T get a parking ticket.
WOW! Gorgeous, benevolent, friendly, they're making up quite a list of virtues. ((((sigh))))
I've been a baaaaaad, baaaaaad boy. Write me a ticket, or something, please?
No, wait, step a little closer...smile for the camcorder!
This one's for you, mohammad!! Cheers!
"The Final Crusade has commenced - ladies, grab your bikini and thong bottoms and hit the beaches!"
"5,000 Australians turned up last Sunday at Cronulla determined to 'reclaim the beach'."
If 5000 Americans showed up to reclaim anything, you can bet they would be rednecks. Nobody else would have the nerve. Like another poster said, they are not to be trifled with.
Viva the rednecks (mi gente)!
Maids made the world sit up
By Jeff Sommerfeld
THEY were a national and international sensation when they took their first steps down Gold Coast streets in 1965 and 36 years on Meter Maids are still a feature of the Gold Coast.
Clad in nothing more than a small golden bikini and a smile, Meter Maids still patrol the streets putting coins into expired parking meters to save shoppers from a potential fine.
The local Progress Association launched the scheme in April 1965 to minimise the impact on tourism of parking meters, which were introduced the preceding year.
The first meter maid was Annette Welch, now Mrs Bryant, who worked as a receptionist in the Beachcomber Hotel, owned by Gold Coast identity Bernie Elsey.
Mrs Bryant said she was a part-time model and was roped into wearing a hastily designed gold lame bikini, sash and tiara to become the first Meter Maid.
She said people like Elsey were the characters that helped promote the Gold Coast as somewhere different.
"When I met him he was running Hawaiian nights at the Beachcomber. They were the follow-ons from the original pyjama parties, although not as notorious," she said.
Mrs Bryant remembers the Gold Coast at that time as a place where "everybodyknew everybody".
"It was a gorgeous little country village it had such a casual atmosphere. In those days it could take you hours just to walk down Cavill Avenue because you stopped to say hello to everyone you knew.
"Now it has grown but it is still beautiful."
REDNECKS everywhere unite!
These Arabs sound like Abe Foxman's and Eric Yoffie's kind of people. Maybe they can get them to join the ADL, the URJ, and the AJC's.
that sounds like liberal leftists.
Now that's gonna leave a mark.
I've been there! I missed seeing the Meter Maids though ((((((sigh))))))
(I didn't really spend much time shopping, that's probably why)
They have markers on the beach and anchored in the water so that swimmers will know to keep inside the lifeguard-patrolled areas....this also helps to minimize the number of swimmers who end up as shark food :-)
Delightful sunshine, gorgeous clean white-sand beaches, captivating ladies and friendly folks all 'round. When I visited, Quantas had an "Excursion Fare" offering which allowed people to hop between several cities, staying as long as you like at each one, for a very reasonable rate. Interested vacationers may wish to inquire about that with their travel agent. Australia is a grand, sweeping and majestic country with huge differences between different areas, and so it's best to travel around as much as possible within the country in order to get a good sense of what Australia is all about. You won't regret it!
The Jolly Green Giant been gettin' at your vegetable garden?
What are you talking about you lunatic. There's about as much chance of white Europeans losing their countries and becoming slaves in 10 years as me becoming president of the USA.
Muslims make up 3% of the population in Europe, if that! I suspect that you're not European. If you were, then you'd know that what you just spouted was utter nonsense.
