Give them enough rope...
I'll be posting this across three threads to tie them together. The readers will judge for themselves whether we are dealing with a case of devious double-standard and hypocrisy from white Australia.|
[Emucentral said]...In another thread, Cestmoi details his experience and clearly admits to muttering comments at a security guard which brought on a bit of backchat. Cestmoi said the metal detector was set
Cestmoi attributes the whole experience to him being Chinese, and the guard being (presumably) an anglo- Australian.

Emucentral narrated the incident as if he were there! We can now clearly see that Emucentral with intend twisted the words and manufactured evidences maliciously. In this case, Emucentral said I admitted that I muttered comments at a security when in fact I muttered to myself that "this is ridiculous". I said something similar in NY, JFK and the response was: "Yeah, but necessary."
Also be mindful of nuances: I "admitted" nothing, rather, I "stated" that I was muttering to myself.
I did not say the metal detector was set too high. The other female guard said it was set too high.
I did not attribute the whole experience to being Chinese although I have witnessed many security guards use these measures to vent their pettiness on passengers. However I do attribute the incident to Howard's divisive politics to inter alia create an atmosphere of fear and hatred.
What we witness here is a remarkable effort to dissemble and to re-write history and events, also throwing in a bit of character assassination along with it. However this is a typical white Australian attitude. They do that a lot, it is one of their defining national trait.
However the most damning of all evidence here is Emucentral's implicit assertion that there is no "freedom of speech" as such. Cestmoi is not to mutter to himself anything that Australians do not like.
In another thread, I advocated a form of editorial censorship. Emucentral posted following:
[Emucentral said] ...Why do you want this censoship to continue, Cestmoi.
You live in HK, don't you?
Why do you wish to perpetuate this difference in rights, where the people of HK are allowed free access to
news and opinions from around the globe, but their neighbours in Shenzhen are not?
Or maybe you want the HK media to be as controlled as that of the mainland, please clarify.

Fair enough, but what if they disagree with Emucentral. Can the reporters say "its ridiculous" publicly if Cestmoi isn't even allowed to mutter to himself?
In another thread, Emucentral agreed with me that students from Beijing- and Tsinghua Univerisities should be able to read these postings. Emucentral cited SCMP and "The Standard" as examples. I take Emucentral assumes nobody at these newspapers mutter "its ridiculous" about Australia's divisive and oftentimes abusive politics?

There has been university students on this forum, they do read it. It is good they see the dissembling and rewriting of events by Australians.
Meanwhile Christopher_104 suggested that "Australia should be used as an example, not an object of envy."
As for using Australia as an example: we will not introduce a reverse White Australia Policy; we most certainly will not commit genocide against the Aborigines; and we will not have any of the Cronulla race riots. As for rushing headlong into the Irak war whilst bribing Saddam Hussein with $300 millions, you can forget about that too. Appealing as these Australian qualities may be to our English forumite Christopher_104, it is just not Chinese.
We can see now certain Australian national characteristics surfacing:
(1) Australian freedom of speech is okay as long as it does not contravene or appear to contravene official policies;
(2) Australian freedom of speech is not okay if it upsets a white Australian;
(3) Australian freedom of speech is okay if a wite Australian upsets a Chinese;
(4) Australian tendency to dissemble, re-write history and events; and engage in character assassination.
