The Australian TEA Party is anti-BDS ... thank you to Suzannah Chambers for the following article

Deutschland Revisited?


It is happening now in Australia….

The Jewish people across Europe in the 1930s and 1940s were victims of the worst genocide in history. Over six million men, women and children died in the most horrific circumstances. It wasn’t until after 1945 that the world began to understand what had really happened  – there were cries of disbelief that a civilised and cultured nation such as Germany could allow such atrocities.
 Where were the voices of condemnation?  It brings to mind stirring words from Friedrich Gustav Emil Martin Niemöller who was a protestant pastor and social activist.  He said:

When the Nazis came for the communists,
 I did not speak out;
 As I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,
 I did not speak out;
 I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
 I did not speak out;
 As I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews,
 I did not speak out;
 As I was not a Jew.

When they came for me,
 there was no one left to speak out.

How many of us will remain silent because of political correctness?  There are no logical arguments just vitriol coming from socialists just baseless accusations of racism and bigotry.
 It is time for mainstream Australia to realise that anti-semitism is beginning once again to show its ugly face in our society.  Frightening and devastatingly true.
Jewish business interests have been target by BDS (Boycotts, Divestments and Sanctions a pro-palestinian global movement which seeks to destroy Jewish business interests and ultimately Israel itself. Sound familiar? Does the word Nazi come to mind?
The Greens , specifically Senator Lee Rhiannon  support BDS. They have launched protests in Sydney and in Melbourne against Max Brenner , a Jewish owned chocolate shop. It was in Melbourne that  19 people were arrested and three police officers were hospitalised after violent clashes.
This Saturday August 27th patriots faced the radical left wing supporters of palestine outside Max Brenner in Southbank Parklands in Brisbane.  The police were out in force and barricades were erected on the lawn outside of the grounds.
  Patriots from the TEA Party, Menzies House , members of the Jewish community , other patriot groups and the general public milled around the outside of Max Brenner.  Then, there arose an almighty din – the extreme left had arrived.
 Screaming like banshees they used loudhailers to alert the gathering public that palestine was not indeed free and that Israel was an apartheid state.   It was very interesting to watch their reactions when over 100 patriots climbed a retaining wall and lurched towards them.
It became quickly apparent to the pro-Palestinian and extreme left protestors that they were greatly outnumbered.   Their vile racism was deeply offensive to all around them.  Members from the general public were astounded at the venom dribbling from the mouth of these young radicals.
One individual commented “Maybe they should go to Gaza and take up arms if they feel so strongly about it!”.  Young men wearing keffiyeh, a symbol of Palestinian resistance, seemed incongruous to the Australian landscape.
In less than an hour it was obvious that they were outmatched and departed with their tails firmly between their legs.  What a victory for everyday Australians who recognise the face of evil and tyranny.  
Never again!
