What the TEA Party thinks Kevin Rudd said

The material below is what is being circulated amongst passionate TEA Party members as an example of a courageous defence of the Western way of life, of God, democracy, country, and all good English speaking people. The problem is — according to the ABC — it never happened! The following quote comes from a clever ABC article that is not about whether or not Muslims can successfully integrate into Western culture, which is an enormous and important debate.

The article is more about the frightening aspects of group-think, where all incoming news sources are censored for absolute conformity to TEA-Party beliefs and standards. Extremists flock to news sources that confirm their beliefs, even if the events in question never happened. Kevin Rudd told Muslims to ‘go home’ — here’s a dozen TEA Party websites that say he did! 😉

From the ABC article:

***

Whole world Needs Leaders Like This!

Australian Prime Minister had this to say recently;

“Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia…”

Quote:

IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. 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.

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 mainly 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!

Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, 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.

We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.

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 Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.

If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.

    I’ve been sent the Kevin email a few times a couple of times from friends in UK and just last week it came from a Sydney resident but this PM was Gillard. I asked the sender if they really believed Gillard would say anything like that?
    It must be wishful thinking.
