The thousands of “professional protesters” who turned out to anti-Reclaim rallies “have tried to make it about race and engaged in extremely racist and intolerant actions,” Christensen said.
Reclaimers, like Christensen, are worried about “a push to introduce Sharia law in to Australia, and the connections between halal certification and funding for terrorist organisations”.
“Everyone needs to set aside their pre-conceived ideas,” Christensen said, and open their minds to the possibility that mums and dads and white people around the nation could be funding terrorism through “the quasi-religious tax known as halal certification”.
“I don’t know whether my grocery spend is going to fund extremist versions of that religion or extremist religious activities that I would rather not see in Australia,” Christensen has written in a previous blog post.
After numerous fact-checking exercises, almost everyone else does.
But Christensen wants a parliamentary inquiry.
“There is certainly enough evidence to suggest it is an extortion racket and it now looks like the links to terrorist-funding found overseas also applies in Australia,” he said.
“Many people were surprised it is not against the law to burn the Australian flag.”
That’s why he’s appealing to the Human Rights Commission — although not directly to Commissioner Gillian Triggs who Christensen believes is less reliable than Green Left Weekly, which is published by Socialist Alliance — to classify it as racial discrimination.
“It is a shame the Socialist ratbags took such aggressive and racist action to shut down any free speech that doesn’t agree with their own ideology,” Christensen said.
“According to the Left, free speech is a right — as long as you agree with the Left.”
According to Christensen, anti-racism laws are wrong. Unless they’re used to help racists.
