Australia - The Right to Leave

Our Country - YOU Have the right - the right to leave !

After Sydney not wanting to offend other cultures by putting up Xmas lights.

After hearing that the State of South Australia changed its opinion and let a Muslim woman have her picture on her driver's license with her face covered.

This prompted this editorial written by an Australian citizen. Published in an Australian newspaper.


I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.

However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the "politically correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by
coming to Australia.

However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand.

This idea of Australia being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Australians, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle.

This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.

We speak ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, Learn the language!

"In God We Trust" is our National Motto. This is not some Christian, right wing, political slogan. We adopted this motto because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this
is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, Because God is part of our culture.

If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like " A Fair Go", then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet.

We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, And we really don't care how you did things where you came from.

This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this.

But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our National Motto, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,


If you aren't happy here then f#@* off! We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted. Pretty easy really, when you think about it.

I figure if we all keep passing this to our friends (and enemies) it will also, sooner or later get back to the complainers, lets all try, please.
This is not a dress rehearsal

I'm not entirely sure that the Ozzies do in fact speak English.

Or the Septics for that matter. :lol:


Seen that article many times before, think it may even be on another Arrse thread.

I totally agree with it.
If you choose to immigrate to another country, you need to adapt your behaviour so that you can fit in with your adopted land.
This mean’s learning the language, accepting the laws of the land, and being tolerant of the religion.
If you can’t do that then either go home or move to yet another country.
Say that in this country and you will be branded all sorts of things.
What, so that means I can't wear Lederhosen, drink Weissbier, Schuhplattel, throw my beach towel all over the place at 0500, drive 210 mph on the motorway/Autobahn, shout "Jawohl!" and snarl "for you Tommy ze War is Over" and exclaim "Donner and Blitzen" while singing Blau, Blau, Blau ist der Enzian while frying Bratwurst and stuffing myself with Sauerkraut?


No one ever told me... :lol:

Ah well, at least I get to play "invasion", "breaching the hull" and "D-day landings" with Mr F every night. :twisted:
