Australia's alternating Liberal/Labor (Laboral) governments accept all comers because they have become conditioned to be fearful of the racist slur automatically cast by immigrant lobby groups like the Federation of Ethnic Communities' Councils of Australia.
Australia's mass media is constantly bombarded by propaganda condemning any criticism of immigrants or any calls to reduce immigration. And guess who's driving the propaganda - the immigrants who want more of their country folk arriving, and who protest 'stuff assimilation' - we'll retain our nationality in Australia!
Take the emotive propaganda in a recent article by the Federation of Ethnic Communities' Councils of Australia which it had published in Fairfax's Sydney Morning Herald on 21st October 2010:
So Migliorino claims that assimilation is 'walking backwards', that 'equality of all cultures...is the soul of a truly multicultural vision.'
Look at the divisiveness of multiculturalism, where ethnic enclaves thrive in our capital cities - with no intention to integrate with the Australian mainstream population! A more 'cohesive nation' is one with common values, ways of life, culture and social mores.
Government polices across Australia have mandated into law acceptance of 'cultural diversity' while not accepting into law recognitionj of Australian cultural values. Why?
Such immigration favouritism has indeed 'disempowered and marginalised' traditional and ancestral Australians and our traditional cultural values.
Anyone dare critical of 'cultural diversity' is conveniently branded 'racist'.
Australia has continually had a 'national multicultural policy' since Whitlam went on his politically correct high horse introducing multiculturalism in 1972 and Fraser and subsequent Laboral governments have perpetuated it ever since!
Such is the guilt-inciting crafted language being reinforced in the mass media to ensure any anti-immigrant sentiment by free thinkers remains taboo.
Colonist invasion of Australia and the persecution of Aboriginals is not a justification for more immigration!
Following Migliorino's article and heading up Fairfax's typical 'COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED' list, is a gem response by reader, John Williams who comments...
"I have never heard such bull...t in my life.
People come to Australia because of our values and lifestyle which has been created based on our 200 year history of English beliefs and principles.
These values that have been instilled in the Australian way of life since settlement and enshrine the notion of fairness, equality and giving people a go no matter their background, religious beliefs, financial status, etc.
Some of the migrants that come to Australia appear disinterested in every aspect of Australian life. They appear intent on setting up their own small country, bringing with them their own countries beliefs, prejudices, principles and rules and setting up in Australia which leads to enclaves being established and exclusion of all things Australian.
I have no problem with people being proud of their heritage and cultural background, but when you hear Australian born children and grandchildren of Immigrants referring to themselves as Turkish, Lebanese, etc, then it makes you wonder why we even bother.
These people need to embrace an Australian culture first and foremost, otherwise get the hell out of Australia because we dont need you or want you.
We want people to be embrace Australia first, becomes Australians and be proud of their adopted Country - Australia. Not some distant war torn, undemocratic, 3rd world ghetto from where they came, otherwise just dont bother coming here in the first place.
Forget all the political speak and correctness. It is about time for politicians to ask
Australians the kind of Australia they want and the kind of migrants that they would like to see and the answers may shock you Mr Migliorino."

Then there's another piece of immigrant propaganda from Migliorino:
