SHARIA LAW, “RACISM” AND JOHN SCHUMANN: a dilemma re the future of civilisation?
Songwriter John Schumann was disappointed by his song, “I was only 19”, being used at recent Reclaim Australia rallies.
You can’t help esteeming Schumann’s lyrics — such realism plus such superficiality.
“A four week operation, when each step could mean your last one on two legs:
it was a war within yourself.
But you wouldn’t let your mates down ‘til they had you dusted off,
so you closed your eyes and thought about something else.
“Then someone yelled out ‘Contact’, and the bloke behind me swore.
We hooked in there for hours, then a God almighty roar;
Frankie kicked a mine the day that mankind kicked the moon:
God help me, he was going home in June.”
Yes, those clashing with “Reclaim Australia” protesters call them “racists”. Perhaps justifiably in some cases.
But don’t we all fear our Australia being lost to alien domination, as in Sharia Law?
Those rallying to warn about this reality and those fearing the opposite (“racism”) really have a lot in common — yet they find themselves brawling with each other on the streets.
What is the solution?
The two factions must find a common cause.
Including Muslims re-examining their understanding of Allah himself. Plus disowning the violence of the Prophet Mohammed’s methods in his own lifetime.
That’s a lot to ask of them.
But it has to happen for civilisation in Australia and the world to have any long-term future.
