Australia’s immigration rate is twice the level of Britain and the USA.

In my post the other week titled Europe versus Australia I outlined the reasons why I think that Europe is better placed to survive the progressive assaults of multiculturalism than is Australia. Regular commenter Brandon agreed with me and pointed out that Britain is particularly vulnerable as well.

I think Britain is actually weaker than mainland Europe due to the cultural Marxists ascendency in the BBC and the political class. The English have been cut off from their history and uniquely denied a legitimate nationalism. Education and Academia have a huge responsibility for this global and leftist indoctrination.

As I replied to him, it is interesting that the countries that appear most susceptible to the multicultural infestation are those with a dominion connection to Great Britain – Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Britain itself, of course.

But a recent article in the New York Times of all places, puts into stark relief the peril that Australia is facing.

But outside of regular swings of the pendulum, Australians have been drifting leftward for 20 years now. In 1996, the Australian Election Study found, typical voters identified a little to the right of center. By 2010, they saw themselves as neither right nor left, and in 2016, they were to the left of center.

The key to unlocking the shift in attitudes is the 26 years of uninterrupted economic growth in Australia. It has unleashed the two reinforcing demographic trends that tilt an electorate to the left: booming cities and mass migration.

What the article leaves out is that the political class has actively cultivated this mass immigration over that time period. Pauline Hanson warned us back in 1996 that Australia was in danger of being “swamped by Asians”, a warning for which she was ridiculed. But the warning was prescient.

In 1996, the population had 13.2 million locally born Australians and 4.5 million overseas-born. English-speaking migrants from Britain, Ireland, New Zealand and South Africa numbered almost 1.5 million, or a third of the total. The European-born accounted for another one million, while the Asian-born were just under 860,000.

Twenty years on, the Asian-born are Australia’s largest immigrant community at 2.6 million. People from the four English-speaking countries number 2.1 million, while those from continental Europe are at 1.1 million. The new arrivals from China and India are increasingly likely to land in major cities in relatively high-income areas once held by the Liberal Party.

Those figures do not include children born in Australia to those overseas born family units. If those numbers were included then it would be looking far worse than these stats as presented here. It’s why at the end of the school day you can stand outside the venerable school institution that is Melbourne high school and 95% of the students that emerge are Asian.

Migrants are now about 29 percent of Australia’s population. This is more than double the number of the overseas-born populations in the United States and Britain.

Boom. Double boom. Double boom with a boom cherry on top.

Many popular commenters have been drawing attention to the number of immigrants in places like the USA. But very few of us are talking about Australia, and yet it is this country which is leading the world in the mass immigration and multicultural stakes. My piece on Europe versus Australia got lambasted online here in my home country. Not on the economic points that I made – Australians were in clear agreement with my conclusions there – but with my points on Australia’s ability to survive the demographic nightmare that it has brought upon itself.

Brought upon itself by our politicians. It was the conservative Liberal party that were in power for over a decade up to 2007, and they have since been in power when they won the election in 2013. But the immigration numbers do not show any signs of slowing down.

And yet when I pointed out that culturally we as a nation are much more vulnerable than Europe, and I specifically did not include Britain in that appraisal, my fellow Australians poured scorn on my arguments. But our immigration rates are not only higher than continental Europe, they are twice the rate of Britain, a country that we look upon here as being in deep trouble in this regard.

There has been much dismay in conservative circles over last week’s federal budget, a budget which would do any progressive Left government proud. While I do not think that prime minister Malcolm Turnbull has much strategic sense, he did manage to wrest the leadership off Tony Abbott, a position which he has since held. This big spending, big taxing, socialist budget from a conservative government is simply a clear message that the Liberal party understands which way the demographic numbers now swing.

An early sign of the ability of immigrants and urban dwellers to redraw the political map came in 2007 when Chinese and Indian Australians helped defeat the Liberal Prime Minister John Howard in his own seat of Bennelong, in Sydney’s affluent northwest.

The Liberal party has shifted left to reflect our multicultural reality. If they can retain the huge numbers of people living here who were born overseas then they might be able to stay in power. In reality I am quite sure that this is what Turnbull wants. Remember, this man headed the republican movement in the late 90s. Although the vote to sever our ties with Great Britain was defeated then, what better way to ensure a future victory by bringing in hordes of foreigners who care not one whit whether Australia remains in the Commonwealth or goes towards some nebulous republican model.

Almost 30 percent of Australia’s population were born overseas. Australia is the world’s most successful multicultural society, and as I stated in my earlier piece, that is something to be very worried about indeed.

    Australian Federal Labor and Liberal are currently as bad as each other, so what do we do? If we vote Liberal, Turnbull will stay in power and arrogantly steer us towards economic & immigrative oblivion. If we vote Labor, Shorten will steer us even faster towards oblivion – but at least that should remove Turnbull as leader of the Liberal party. Except, who will replace him? Traitor Julie Bishop who is spineless & power hungry? Tony Abbott who is a nice guy but can’t make the tough decisions (like shaking up that stupid lefty ABC) and makes stupid ones instead (like knighting Prince Phillip). I tell you what, Australia needs a hero.

    This cultural invasion has been directed by the Global socialist U.N.
    The stopping of the boats by Abbott was just a slight hiccup to the plans, so now we just pay to fly them in.

    Most country’s elites and pollies fall in line with the U.N, but none more so than Australia’s.

    1. The stopping of the boats was not only a distraction, it was a strategic blindside. The public assumed that the inflows had stopped when in fact the boats represented just the tip of the iceberg.

  3. Adam, the elites, the MSM and the open-border zealots here in the U.S. have done irreparable harm here and I think, without knowing so, you are using the 11-12 million illegal aliens figure that has somehow stayed the same since the overhaul of our immigration system by that hated (by conservatives) 1965 Hart-Celler act. 

    In ’65 it was 11-12 million. Today, “The Song Remains the Same” damn number still preached. How likely does that sound to you? It’s probably more like 30-40 million now, and that’s just from Mexico. 

    And that’s not even counting all the visa overstays which are now in the 10-11 million range. 

    Let’s also not forget they breed like rabbits and pass their Liberal outlook, not to mention their ethnocentrism (read failure or unwillingness) to assimilate to their offspring. Still waving the Mexican flag,  “Press one for English, two for Spanish” and Cinco de Mayo every year as a constant and never-ending slap to the face for the rest of us.

    You will *NEVER* get an accurate figure from them. If they did tell the truth there would have been a Southern wall with troops, minefields and machine-gun nests from San Diego to Texas 20+ years ago.

    So, yeah, we’re pretty much demographically screwed as much, if not more, than you guys are.

    UK figures under count net migration. We can tell this when various nations have been given the right to enter from the EU there are sudden spikes in applications for National Insurance numbers from people who were obviously working here already. A friend in the Border Force agency tells me that at the airports alone for every illegal migrant they stop they think one will get through. This is worse at the ports. Our National Health Service, Welfare benefits, Jobs and general opportunities are very attractive. The migrant trafficking crisis is also behind this and the no-borders movement. As the son of a migrant married to the daughter of a migrant I can see these astronomical numbers are untenable and threatening. The electorate has repeatedly voted managed migration of primarily high skilled net contributors who can show they have the best wishes of the country at heart. As long as we stay in the EU anyone, anyone, inside the EU can travel to the UK and use our services. I have met excellent people, net contributors with vital skills but there are many that do not meet this measure. Whilst I do not think diversity plus proximity inevitably leads to war we are in fact letting in among recent muslim migrants ISIS combatants and their fellow travellers, tipping the gender ratio, lowering IQ and introducing people who have values alien to the British and will flourish in our democracy not be able to integrate or find work. It’s the most shocking political policy I have ever seen, going from denial, to stealth and now a brazen disregard for the results. CJ Hopkins has written that the élite push irrational policies to distinguish their followers from the faint hearted as only the blindly loyal would sign up to our current migration policy.
