TOPIC: Manus/Nauru Island Detention Camps

Manus/Nauru Island Detention Camps 02 Nov 2016 10:25 #21

These same immigration policies should be adopted throughout the whole of Europe, plus round up any illegals or economic migrants (not genuine Syrian Refugee families) that have entered Europe in the last 30 years. Scuttle the smuggler boats offshore with 30mm cannon too, every single boat in the med should be turned back, then the boats confiscated and sunk.

Being at the helm of one of these border patrol boats would actually be one of my ideal jobs.. I would of course allow any sick and injured through, families with children too, but ALL single men will get a quick tow back to Africa, the smugglers arrested, then their boats sank at my command offshore in deep water with the 30 mm cannon. I'm not joking either.

All genuine refugees should be given temporary shelter, and not permanent residence.

The vast majority of Europeans would also support much much stricter immigration laws (such as those in Australia) rather than the current lunatic open borders policy of Europe. The current open boarders madness will eventually mean Europeans becoming a minority inside their homelands within a generation or two, or even sooner.

I'm not disputing the policy rather the media suppression, and the torture. I knew this would happen and that the thread would get derailed towards a global ''we should all be doing that'' thread.

It's why it's not even worth bringing things like this up on TZ, that was my mistake, having a ''stay on that island instead policy'' may all be good and well but there's no need to torture people or to have a media black out inside the centres, it doesn't cost much to give people something to do, or to inform them what's going on.

A scenario could be, person commits murder so goes to prison for an amount of years, person still has basic human rights and is informed of the process and procedure, person is not ignored by guards if abused by other inmates etc, media has permission to film inside prisons, which they often do.

Versus:

People flee persecution possibly have been fighting ISIS, lost and had to flee, or in Sri Lanka Tamil tigers or whatever, these people are not even being processed and rejected, they are just being detained with less rights than criminal prisoners, being deprived a decent level of sanitation or in some cases medicine.

So, the thread is not about what should be done with asylum seekers but rather it's about treating them worse than murderers and rapists, having a media black out inside the camps, and maintain conditions that cause people to become mentally ill, in short it's torture hidden from the media, I would not think decent people would agree with that, even if they agree with a holding centre for containing/assessing/deporting asylum seekers, it would be more humane to say to them, right we've looked at your case and it's been rejected/accepted, you're getting deported or not, rather than to hold them in such poor conditions that you are too worried to let the media report upon it.

I guess when these concentration camp like conditions are exposed the usual suspects pipe up in support of them, some people enjoy hearing about the suffering of others, it's not a crime to turn up and ask for asylum, the process could be, right wait in these camps until we decide upon your claim, even if the claims are mainly turned down, there's no point in being that cruel that you need to hide your activity from the media, which is exactly what is occurring in this case, it's hidden because they know it's wrong.

How do you expect to talk about the alleged torture of illegal immigrants and the alleged ''media suppression'', without also immigration policy coming into the fray? You can't.

I think this alleged torture of illegal migrants is nothing more than mass media lies to try and soften people up into accepting hordes of illegal immigrants and economic migrants. Have you seem how illegal immigrants and criminals get treated inside their own countries? Most of these detention centres in the West are like Butlins holiday camps in comparison.

It's quite simple really, you shouldn't try and gain access illegally to another country and risk being thrown into one of these detection centres. At least they're given a roof over their heads, clothes, food, and sometimes even internet access, shops, and other facilities. All paid for by the taxpayer. How do the refugee camps and detention centres in the West compare with those run by third World countries? I think we already know the answer to that one don't we. That's why every c**t wants to move to the West in the first place..

Illegal immigrants are people that have entered a country in a covert sort of sneaky way, media that is not permitted to film in a certain location is suppressed in this context from reporting/filming something regarding international affairs, ie they are not permitted to enter the centres. People don't get treated well in their own nations = we will treat them badly too :nono:

I don't know why you have taken issue with this, I can only guess that it's an extension of your nostalgic 1930.s Germany psuedoNazi mindset.

You are doing yet another of your stupid bullshit hasbara Jew troll threads.

It is well known here you are a twat and thick as shit.

Tell me, which other military operations have media crew in there at the coal face taking footage of what's going on?

Would Israel let in the media crew when they're blowing the brains out of Palestinian children?

Of course not.

The illegal asylum seekers - they are labelled ILLEGALS for a reason as they are not legally immigrating - and the vast majority are economic migrants not asylum seekers meaning they would be likely killed if they returned to their country of origin.

These policies have worked tremendously well and have completely stopped the illegal people smuggling industry which brought them to Australia in the first place.

They are very good and effective policies it's just that Jews and shabos goy cultural Marxists don't like them because they defeat their plans to saturate Australia with third world immigrants

Id say a number of these immigrants (and they are illegal immigrants mind you) attempt to get to australia for economic reasons... there might not be anyone treating them badly per se, but there is a lack of opportunity and also poverty in many cases, this is their motivator. Which i can understand i suppose.

Personally i go against the grain of some here and consider oz in a different light to europe... i feel that europe is already heavily populated and should be turning illegals back because of this, because it has economic issues of its own, and also to retain its diversity and the unique cultures in the various nations and provinces, some of which only exist because the native population fought to preserve their way of life and culture over hundreds and even thousands of years in some cases (ok yes cue the nazi label) ... so ok some immigration into europe is one thing but boat loads landing every week and living in tent cities by the thousands, making demands... and attacking truck drivers in france trying to get to the UK etc is a whole other level.

... but in australias case, not only is it an enourmous landmass with many resources, it also has the lowest population density of any continent bar antarctica iirc. It can accomodate many more people imho, but, tptb dont want that in the way they seem to want in other places.

And not taking anything away from the australian aborigines, yes i know it was their land stolen, yes i know theyve been genocided, but we cant go back and fix it without a time machine and afaik time machines havent been made yet (or at least havent been declassified :twitch: ) ... so , the aborigines arent about to increase in numbers greatly anytime soon... so oz has the space, and the resources.

And on that, the native people in oz were treated badly and told what was best for them, it was FORCED upon them, so why should it happen again in europe, its the same thing all over again but instead of the british empire doing it, its now the alphabet world agencies thinking they know whats best for native europeans, just as they thought they knew what was best for australian aborigines and others such as native americans. A bunch of elites dictating to the 99 whatever percent that they know whats best... history is repeating ... But i digress...

So let them into oz but not europe is my position.. my position might be controversial to some here and it definitely is diametrically opposed to some here, but thats how i see it. I seem to see it opposite to the globalists though.. that is, my position opposes the globalists... who do control oz, nothing in politics happens by accident.. and the current PM is ex goldman sachs just like many politicians put into place in europe right now or the past few years.

oz sucks the teat of the globalists like almost everyone else (that isnt getting bombed) .. they follow their masters into all the conflicts (eg iraq, afghanistan) .. it is a crown colony.. yet when it comes to fugees, theres a different agenda.. could simply be agenda 21, politician/musician peter garret once blurted out that large chunks of the food bowl would become national parks one day... they seem to not want oz heavily populated, but its ok in europe and north america.

So im not suprised that getting into oz is as difficult as ent getting into, well, you know whopfei. :joker:

And Nov I agree if the bilderberger set (the leaders currently in Australia for MH 17 and Dirk Hartog landing stuff) wanted boat loads of illegal Arab migrants coming to Australia the detention centre policy would not be allowed. I'd only be speculating as to why those policies are allowed to exist.

I also agree that Australia's population is being kept small for some reason. It's barely 25 million in an area much the same size as the continental USA.

The vast majority of "migrants" have paid approx $10k to people smugglers to get them to a shitty Indonesian boat that hopefully doesn't sink on the journey over shark and sea snake infested cyclone prone waters.

They therefore aren't asylum seekers (ie seeking political asylum because of threat to their life) but have paid to be trafficked illegally to enter a country under false pretences.

I'd suspect frothy has only made this thread because Uncle Shlomo has lost his lucrative people smuggling racket. We all know how much Jews like a good human trafficking business!

Yes i agree with all of that ( except the last line, unlike some of you im not convinced that frothy has an uncle shlomo :P )

And the detention centers are part of the deterrent... it is intended that people thinking about buying a ride hear that others before them tried and never made it to the shores of oz.

Well youre talking about small, poor islands which are probably run in a dictatorial fashion (i dont really know im assuming though) , the leaders of which have struck deals with the "australian government" (what the fuq) ...so im not suprised they can control what goes on there and who goes on there.

It is essentially like private property so what can you do about that? Oz corporation ("australian government") has palmed these people off to these other places, pays for it, but has little accountability as its not on its shores.

Manus Island is in PNG, the hallmark nation of human rights and civilisation (it still has cannibals in the jungles and men who wear huge gourds / plant things on their knobs :hahano: )

And Nauru which became bankrupt when all the bird shit had been scraped off it.

The detention centres are not military operations they are policed by G4s, so there is no need for a media suppression inside these centres other than to cover up what the authorities don't want the public to know.

Turning up on a large boat full of other such people is hardly being an illegal immigrant, rather they are requesting asylum, they're not hiding in the populations, the media not being allowed to report inside the camps has nothing to do with a ''military operation'' it's to do with hiding what is going on in the camps from the viewing public, because the authorities know what they doing is something that decent people would disagree with.




It's quite cute the way that the Orangebuffoon and the other gink are supporting the ''Jewish authorities'' over this issue.

As I said already the island thing might be a good idea but if it was a processing centre rather than a detention centre, the conditions are causing people to lose their minds due to mental health problems, it's a form of torture.

Population, Religion and Immigration

Why did so many embark on leaky boats, rather than present themselves as ordinary economic migrants? Because they have no marketable skills, little education and no jobs waiting for them upon arrival. What many do boast is a troubling insularity borne of loyalty to fundamentalist Islam

Many, perhaps most, of the difficulties and malaise currently being experienced by the West, including Australia, stem in large measure from two factors: the unprecedented increase in population in the Third World, and the replacement of secular, universalistic ideologies, especially Marxism, by religious fundamentalism. Neither underlying trend has been widely discussed here, and the aim of this article is to examine these factors on the context of Australia’s policy towards immigration and political extremism.

The statistics of population increase throughout the Third World in recent decades are simply staggering. Although everyone is aware that there has been a worldwide population explosion, and that this has occurred primarily in the under­developed world, in all likelihood few know just how astronomical this increase has been. Here is a table of the populations of various randomly selected Third World countries in 1950 and today (numbers in millions):

1950 2015 % increase

Afghanistan 8.2 26.6 324

Bangladesh 45.6 158.5 348

Brazil 53.4 204.1 382

Cambodia 4.5 15.4 342

China 563 1369 243

Congo (Kinshasa) 13.6 71.2 524

Egypt 21.2 88.3 417

Haiti 3.1 10.9 352

India 370 1269 343

Iran 16.4 78.2 477

Liberia 0.8 4.5 560

Nigeria 31.8 183.5 577

SouthAfrica 13.6 54.0 397

Venezuela 5.0 30.6 612

Zimbabwe 2.8 13.1 468

These extraordinary rates of increase, which have occurred in virtually every Third World country, have taken place even in states which have experienced local man-made and natural catastrophes—in Cambodia, for instance, whose population has more than tripled since 1950 despite Pol Pot’s genocide; in Afghanistan and Liberia, with their endemic wars and conflicts; in Bangladesh (formerly East Pakistan), where monsoons kill tens of thousands virtually every year. The main reason for this phenomenal rise in population has been the availability of Western medicine—the one form of “Western imperialism” whose “shackles” are never to be “thrown off”—as well as the integration of the economies of most Third World countries into the international economic system. Without the West, no Third World nation could have supported more than a fraction of its current population.

While this great rise in numbers has occurred everywhere in the Third World, it is probably in Africa where it has been most marked. The total population of the African continent increased from only 229 million in 1950 to 1,125 million in 2014, with profound consequences. Kinshasa (formerly Leopoldville), the capital of the so-called Democratic Republic of the Congo, consisted a century ago of a series of fishing villages. In 1947 its population was only 136,000, less than that of Geelong today. By 1970 it had climbed to 1.3 million, while today its population is 7.8 million, only slightly less than the population of London. Delhi’s urban area now numbers 25 million, and is the second largest urban conurbation in the world, behind only Tokyo. Not far behind are the urban areas of Mexico City (21 million), Mumbai (21 million), Cairo (18 million) and Dhaka, Bangladesh (17 million). The metropolitan area of Delhi has a greater population than all of Australia.

As a general rule, the rate of population growth in the Third World has been inversely proportionate to economic development and per capita income, with the highest rate of population growth almost always occurring in the poorest, most backward countries. Of the fifty-two countries in the world whose population increased by 2 per cent or more a year from 2005 to 2010, thirty-two are in Africa (headed by Liberia, whose population increased by 4.5 per cent a year, despite its genocidal civil war), while ten are in the Islamic world. At the other end of the scale are most Western countries, as well as the states of the former USSR and Japan, whose populations have hardly increased at all or, in some cases, have actually declined.

By and large, and not to put too fine a point on the matter, much of the Third World remains a cesspool of benighted backwardness, endemic corruption at every level of society, constant wars, and shattered hopes for development and improvement, with sub-Saharan Africa almost always at the bottom of a very deep barrel. For example, of the sixteen countries in the world with the lowest access to private sanitation facilities, fifteen are in sub-Saharan Africa. Of the thirteen countries with the lowest access to improved drinking water, eleven are in sub-Saharan Africa. Among the 35 million people currently living with HIV/AIDS around the world, 25 million are in sub-Saharan Africa, compared, for instance, with 1.6 million in Latin America. Forty of the fifty countries in the world with the lowest per capita incomes are in sub-Saharan Africa.

Claims that the developed world is neglecting the Third World’s economic growth are dubious. In 2013 the developed world gave US$135 billion in foreign aid to the Third World, with the United States donating $32 billion, Britain $18 billion and Australia $4 billion. Independence came to most former colonies in the Third World between fifty and seventy years ago, obviously ample time to have shaken off whatever were the negative effects of European rule.

To be sure, some Third World countries have developed and prospered beyond recognition, among them South Korea, and especially China. After ridding itself of Nehru socialism, India has emerged as a high-tech centre, while even some African countries like Kenya are prospering. Nevertheless, the enormous population bulge which has occurred throughout the Third World has produced an army—almost literally—of millions of impoverished people, especially young men with near hopeless prospects, who either turn to extremism and violence, or attempt to emigrate, legally or not, to the developed world.

This vast array of the dispossessed is probably greater in number today than at any time in the past, while communication and ease of transport are greater now than at any time in the past. As a result, a tidal wave of immigrants has entered the West, often by illegal means. Throughout Europe (and to a much lesser extent here, because of our stricter immigration rules) whole areas of many major cities have been flooded with Third World immigrants, making these areas virtually unrecognisable to those who had lived there before. This has been facilitated by most governments, but in particular by left-wing governments, keen to prove their anti-racist and politically-correct credentials, while using the (automatically left-wing) votes of the immigrants as an increasing component of their electoral base, which (as with the Labour Party in Britain) would otherwise be constantly declining. In Britain, there are apparently now nearly three million Muslims, as well as several million others from the Third World. In size, this wave of immigration has no historical parallels: for example, in 1930 there were only 300,000 Jews in Britain, after—at the time—relatively heavy immigration from eastern Europe. Similar post-1950 migration waves exist in most European countries, with their governments unable or unwilling to halt them. Indeed, Western Europe may become the first place in history to commit suicide through political correctness.

These demographic trends would be alarming enough, but they have occurred alongside what is arguably the most important political transformation of the recent past, but one whose importance is virtually unnoticed: the virtual end of widely held belief in secular, universalistic ideologies, especially Marxism, and their replacement as popular causes, everywhere but in Western Europe and in most other Western countries like Australia, by a religious fundamentalism and extremism that is deeply engaged in politics. The end of communism in Europe and its effective end in most of Asia have led to the end of Marxism everywhere as an ideology attracting new or young supporters in either the West or the Third World.

In the West, the Left by and large has transmigrated to some variant of the Green movement, which has many of the radical ideological aspects of previous Marxism, but without its hard edge and rigour or its central direction from Moscow or from a local communist party. But in the Third World (and, to a lesser extent, in the United States), the vacuum left by the end of communism has given fundamentalist religion a new lease of life, most obviously and violently in the Islamic world. Whereas fifty or sixty years ago most disaffected students and youth throughout the Islamic world would have embraced some variety of Marxist insurgency, usually mixed with a strong dose of anti-colonialist nationalism, and with Islam present, if at all, as a subsidiary loyalty, now most turn as a matter of course to one or another variety of Islam, each generally more extreme than the next, in a kind of Dutch auction of barbarism. Islamic fundamentalism has, of course, been paralleled in many other cultures—by the rise of the BJP in India, by various Buddhist movements in South-East Asia, by Charedi Judaism in Israel, and, in a sense, by the “Moral Majority” in the United States.

By and large, however, the rise of religious fundamentalism has been entirely absent from the West, which is incorrigibly secular and where there are few signs of any religious revival. In Russia and Eastern Europe, however, religion and religious practice have made remarkable comebacks since the end of communism (and, indeed, before that). In Russia the Orthodox Church has, de facto, been restored to its pre-1917 position after seventy years of persecution, with thousands of churches reopening since the fall of communism. (One little-known but potent example of the sheer resilience of religion in Russia may be found in the career of Georgy Malenkov (1902–88), one of Stalin’s most loyal underlings, who served as Premier of the Soviet Union between 1953, when Stalin died, and 1955. Malenkov was purged in 1957 and fell into complete obscurity. In his later years, however, he became a devout member of the Russian Orthodox church, and served as a reader (the equivalent of a curate) and as a choir singer, an official church position. When Boris Yeltsin died in 2007, he was the first Russian head of state to be buried in a Russian Orthodox funeral service since Tsar Alexander III in 1894.)

The central place of fundamentalist religion, and religious violence, in the contemporary world is, of course, strongly associated with militant Islam, the source of most murderous violence and terrorism today. In the past, there were successful and unsuccessful attempts to introduce Western liberal reforms into Islamic states, most obviously by Kemal Ataturk in Turkey. Much less well known were the efforts by King Amanullah Khan in 1929 to introduce far-reaching reforms, including the emancipation of women, into Afghanistan, of all places; for his pains he was immediately deposed by conservative tribesmen and clerics. The Marxist regime which held power there between 1978 and 1992 also attempted to institute the same range of reforms, in the context of Marxist repression, but was also overthrown. Arab nationalist dictators like Nasser and Saddam Hussein also imposed many secular reforms, sometimes with persisting results, sometimes not. Today, however, the importance of fundamentalist religious ideologies in the Islamic world is clearly greater than ever.

Islamic terrorism is most apparent in the Muslim world, both as a result of Sunni–Shi’ite rivalry and as a means of persecuting non-Muslim minorities. But it has been brought to the West by the tidal wave of Muslim immigration during the past forty years or so, a major component of Third World immigration to the West. The presence of significant numbers of Muslims in the West is entirely novel—there were few Muslims in the West before the 1950s—and has occurred as a component of the vast population increase throughout the Third World, by much higher birth-rates than among the majority population, and by some conversions to Islam.

Bearing all these points in mind, what can one say about Australia’s approach to immigration? By and large, it has been fairly sensible compared with Europe, and its points-based system has often been recommended for copying elsewhere. The Australian points system effectively prohibits the migration here of those without education, marketable skills, job offers or family connections, and thus—in theory—rules out unskilled and semi-skilled would-be migrants from the Third World (or elsewhere). Generally, of course, Australia’s post-1945 immigration is seen as a model of success.

But it is far from perfect. We arguably admit far too many migrants. In 2013-14, Australia admitted 190,000 migrants (up from 100,000 in 2003-04) and 13,500 refugees, a number which is due to rise to 20,000. In contrast, the United States, whose population is thirteen times larger than Australia’s, admitted 990,000 legal migrants in 2013 and only 58,000 refugees. If Australia allowed in the same per capita number of immigrants as the United States, it would have let in only about 76,000 migrants and 4400 refugees; both figures appear far more reasonable, given the current state of our economy. The negative impact of high levels of immigration on, for example, the cost and availability of housing here, is discussed all too infrequently, and seldom or never by prominent politicians.

Australia’s generosity stems in part from nostalgia for the very successful immigration of the post-war decades, when there was a consensus that Australia had to “populate or perish”. But those days are over. After the Second World War, Australia was one of only a handful of countries which had already industrialised but was not laid waste by the war. The world wanted what it produced, and Australia was crying out for unskilled and semi-skilled labour for its factories, mines and farms. Protected by high tariff walls, for decades Australian unemployment rates seldom exceeded 1 per cent. Today, it goes without saying, all that has changed. Australia has no tariff protection, little manufacturing industry, competition from every corner of the globe, and an unemployment rate stubbornly stuck at over 6 per cent.

If hordes of Muslim "refugees" were allowed to flood Australia the white uprising would be huge and severe and the authorities know it.

There's nothing wrong with ''Aussies'' protesting the asylum seekers as they see fit, that's not the issue, the issue is the treatment of people in the detention centres and the blocking of media from reporting from within.

These places are being policed by G4s, it is not a military operation, rather it's civil secrecy, suppression of information, what they hiding?

It's not a thread about ''Should Australia deny access to these asylum seekers'' it's about torture and media being refused permission to report in the centres.
