Bad news from Sydney

January 6th, 2007 . by Matt

Racial strife in Australia is seriously getting out of control. I do not want to analyse why the people below hate Australians so much. Maybe they have a subjective reason that makes sense to them. Still that does not mean that Australians should have to take it. There needs to be a moratorium of immigration of people from countries that have trouble fitting in.

Below is a video made by Lebanese (Australian citizen) gang members in Sydney.

Here is another one calling for the rape of Australian girls. There have been a series of racially motivated gang rapes in Sydney.

Below is the news media response to another song advocating violence against (white) Australians. It seems there is a trend of such songs.

I feel like a kind of line has been drawn in the sand. It is so sad. What has happened to this country?

    If you look at the racist taunts that the convicted rapists made. It reminds me a lot of what the Korean American JK/BFk said about women. JK/BFK was very proud to call white aussi women all sorts of horrible names. The rapists did the same thing.

    I hope that JK BFK can come to terms with his horrible racism.

    Well…. Considering Australia had quite a reputation of beeing a racist country it’s probable that people emigrating there now don’t have good intention from the start. So much for the so called superiority of the multicultural society. Still one should remember that theses only represent the worst part of a minority so there is space for hope.

    I hope some people understand that racism is not “genetically” inherent in any population, but is a result of circumstances that are cultural, geographic, economic, educational etc.

    I hope some people understand that racism is not “genetically” inherent in any population, but is a result of circumstances that are … educational etc.

    Which is why trying to combat the incestuous triangle of incompetent professors, pseudo-yangban and emotional nationalists is necessary. All three groups benefit from keeping the system just the way it is in perpetuity.

    If you criticise the incompetent professors, such as Gerry’s former employers have been for a lack of academic rigour, the emotional nationalists call out “racist!”

    If you criticise the pseudo-yangban for their greed and hagwonning their sons and daughters into “famous universities”, the emotional nationalists call out “racist!”.

    If you criticise the emotional nationalists for their evasion of factual evidence the incompetent professors call out “racist!”

    Korea is not suffering from a case of Hermit Kingdomitis it is suffering from a case of Vested Interest Feudalism.

    If one raises an issue such as King Kim Jong-il’s nuclear weapons megalomania the emotional nationalists call out “You know nothing of Korea it is none of your business!”

    There are three problems with this hermit-like covering of ears by the cosy triangle of incompetent professors, pseudo-yangban and emotional nationalists.

    1/ The nuclear weapons of a crazy man are pointed at Japan – not at the pseudo-yangban who will make themselves scarce before the bomb goes off – so it is Japan’s business.

    2/ Appeasement of crazy dictators has been tried before and it didn’t work.

    3/ The Dokdo Saga is just an example of the Pseudo-yangban Triunvirate at work trying to foster enmity between Korea and Japan.

    * Starving 2 million people to death and incarcerating hundreds of thousands in concentration camps and myriad summary executions without trial are evidence of his craziness and lack of humanity.

    What does this have to do with Australia and what Brian was saying? Calm down a little. I understand you’re upset about Kim Jong-il but it’s really not the subject here. We”re supposed to talk about what’s happening in Australia, not about any sort of …pseudo-yangban.
    Well… Stories about racism have a tendancy to put people on edge.

    This is what wjk is. One comment on this blog immideately leads to crap about this whole blog, and talking about Japan immideately leads wjk to talk about Japanese pornography, in particular rape oriented pornography.

    Do you agree with him?

  8. comment number 8 by: GarlicBreath

    WJK is famous for blaming every Korean problem on Japan. He is one to talk. If you read anything on Marmot Hole you can see WJK derail any thread and point his dirty finger at Japan.

    Good point Brian Park. What do you think about Korea’s “pure blood nationalism”

    @Garlic Breath

    Could you give me a reminder of what JK/BFk refers to?

    With all the anti-Americanism coming out of Asia, the Middle East and even from our friends in Europe, don’t worry about offending us Americans….

    Either that or make a more substantial attempt! 😉

  11. comment number 11 by: shadkt

    Ponta, you’re partially mistaken.

    When wjk speaks it’s usually leads to “Japan’s fault! I don’t know why, but it is!” and about Japan porn which he has GREAT knowledge of. haha.
    (see Marmot’s Hole and you can see it everywhere he writes)

    In any case, multi-cultural countries nowadays are having problems.
    U.S., France, Britian and now Australia. I’m sure there are more.
    You just can’t collect people from different cultural background and think that it’s all going to work out without effort. More so, if the people immigrating to the country has hate for that country. It just doesn’t make sense for such form of immigration.
    And why is there such hate when you’re immigrating?
    ONE of the many source, I think, is a misplaced pride of one’s own culture or religion or what not.

    But why is it that the Islam and Muslim religion seem to be causing so much problem throughout the world? Do their doctrine so push for violence, when religion is supposed to save people?
    This I cannot understand.

  12. comment number 12 by: wjk

    Men of Japan and Occidentalism, I am no expert in Japanese porn, like you say.

    I was, however, educated in an academic course that Japanese culture is just plain sexually more loose. That is what I claim, and what academia claims, and if you choose to deny, that is your freedom.

    Obviously, most of you are unable to receive a joke or read into a joke, so when I say,

    Really? Matt is short for Matthew? You take it literally. Because perhaps, you are all idiots.

    When I say, I don’t know why, but it’s Japan’s fault, it’s meant as a joke, although I do admit that I do hold Japan responsible for several things not as a joke.

    Garlic Breathe, you aren’t the best example of mankind. Be a better person, for your sake.

    It’s not about religion per se. It’s about using religion for demagoguery.

    Just as the Liancourt Rocks Issue is used for demagoguery.

    Or Iraq has WMDs.

    Or King Kim jong-il uses the DPRK version of communism.

    Or the Crusades.

    “By appointing Hitler Chancellor of the Reich, you have handed over our sacred German Fatherland to one of the greatest demagogues of all time. I prophesy to you this evil man will plunge our Reich into the abyss and will inflict immeasurable woe on our nation. Future generations will curse you in your grave for this action.”

    It is probably true traditional Japan had sexually.more freedom .
    (Flesh is not sin)
    But that was not what you were talking about.
    You were saying that Japanese pornography in general is rape-oriented.
    Against this, I said,
    “You must have watched enormous amount of Japanese pornography(there is a lot of Japanese pornography) to point out general tendency of J pornography.
    And as far as I know, yes there are rape-oriented pornography, but there is no specific category on the Japanese porno site for “rape”
    You must have searched with a lot of efforts the Japanese rape-pornography out of random category.”

    Obviously, most of you are unable to receive a joke or read into a joke, so when I say,

    Ah it was joke? You didn’t get good laugh on this site, so you persistently talked about it again at Marmot. Did you get a good laugh from the people at Marmot? Anyway I must say you must love a joke related pornograhpy, in
    particular, rape-oriented pornograhpy.

    See also that wjk assumes that everyone here is Japanese.

    Men of Japan and Occidentalism, I am no expert in Japanese porn, like you say.

    Anyone speaking against his sweet Korea must be Japanese, eh?
    What a simple outlook to the world around him.

    Anyhow, one book that says Japan is filled with sex craving female ready to rape men was the Hate Japan Wave, as can be seen on this site.
    Was that the book you studied from wjk?

    Errol

    It’s not about religion per se. It’s about using religion for demagoguery.

    I understand that, but then again, there seems to be more problems with those of Islam and Muslim religion as of late. Are there something in those religion that does not forgive non-believers?
    I hope the religious heads of these respective religion would call out for peaceful resolution, but this seems not to be the case, which is quite sad.

    Well i dont’ know if i’m a pro about japan pornography or just pornography but from my viewpoint Japanese pornography have about 10 times more rape ,angst and such than classical american/european pornography. I have absolutly no idea for the rest of asia thought (i like to understand what the protagonist are saying…. Yeah i know that sounds stupid).

  22. comment number 22 by: Emmanuel_Chanel

    I hear some Australian trouble with Lebanese Muslims. Maybe, it means even that I know much better than usual Japanese. Sometimes, I love to read many threads of http://www.2ch.net/ and I can find many anti-Jewish and anti-Israeli shits there. But I can find also some critics against Muslims: that they don’t obey the rules guaranting freedom for themselves where they immigrate.
    In the Strawberry Field , a pro-Israeli Japanese woman’s Japanese edition of Big Lizards:Blog also introduces Lebanese bad behaviors in Australia.(e.g. Riot Boyz Clash, So No Bikini Atoll)
    On IRC, I don’t feel that against Arabs very strongly, though. But I find too many Turkish men with too bad behaviors. They make obsense with me, with mistaking me for a woman. They are too rude. Those gangs would behave such. What a scare!

    what is your point?

    You might be the authority of Japanese and american/european pornography, but Isn’t it just the case you watch ten times more rape, angst pornography than other fields of Japanese pornography? Isn’t that just your “view” sir?

    I don’t understand why you compare Japanese pornography with “classical” american/european pornography.
    Thanks to the global network, I sometimes look at US pornographic sites, and I was appalled at the cultural difference(I am used to it now,(^_-))but they have variety fields of pornography including the one rape-oriented, or bondage filled with angst.
    I don’t think I have watched enough to judge the tendency and make comparison like you..But, according to you, sir, Japan has ten times such porno, have you watched enough to make comparison,?have you counted? Do you have a paper that researched it? Any link? I really would like to know your expert account of pornography.

    And If we are talking about classical Japanese pornography like Ukiyoe, then I have never seen raping Ukiyoe.Have you?
    Or if we are talking about classical Japanese pornography in the 70’s or 80’s. It was laughable. A woman wears underwear, just naked breast and just make erotic face, with a fancy pose. I was impressed by them at that time though.

    It seems wjk wanted to draw the conclusion, under the context in which he spoke, that Japanese are violent by alleging that Japanese pornography is rape-oriented.

    Is that your point sir? If not ,what is your point?or are you just another Japanese rape-porno fan like wjk?

    I have absolutely no idea for the rest of Asia thought

    Let me confirm just facts, not a fancy opinion. sir.

    Also i personally feel quite sadened to admit it i’ve probably seen enough of it all over the last 10 years to draw asumptions.

Beeing one of theses asian-lovers some people complain about i’ve been quite soon researching this kind of material and was surprised by the wide amount of rape porn in the japanese industry. I don’t believe like some koreans that it is the result of some sort of moral issue that concern especially the japanese people. It most probably concern all of asia.
    Also in japan after WW2 and the change in life that the american occupation had (mainly the imposition by the SCAP of equal rights between men and women) lead disoriented japanese writers like Shintarô Ishihara to write quite offending yet filled with talent rape and violence orientated books.

    Still among all of asia Japan is probably one of the country where sexual abuse and such is minimal (if not compared to other western country). Maybe thanks to the high legalised oral prostitution and all theses rape movies serving as some sort of Catharsis. Or maybe i’m just over simplifying things. Anyway considering Korea doesn’t have a higher moral ground on this matter and the natural tendancy they have to call japanese women hussy that they should rape without constraint i too am a little abashed whenever i see a korean talking on this subject.

    Sonagi

    They may have emigrated and then felt enough rascism from the locals to end up wishing to lash back at them. Lets not forget the not so far away tendency of us white men to go on and hang people on trees like we were holding a fucking matsuri or something.
    I think it’s important to hold moratium on this subject so that people who would emigrate from thereon would understand that new duties would come along with their new rights in they new nation. Everything start from respect. If not given to them efficiently before asked it will only backlash.
    Well maybe i’m too leniant.

    Matt,

    Where in general is the center of gravity in Sydney for these Lebanese assholes? I’m staying close to the Rocks, but most of the foreigners I’ve seen here have been Korean. Thanks to your videos, I now know how to identify Lebanese dudes on the street.

  27. comment number 27 by: Matt

    Generally the areas are Bankstown (moderate danger), Lakema and Punchbowl (off limits to white people).

    Thanks

    Also i personally feel quite sadened to admit it i’ve probably seen enough of it all over the last 10 years to draw assumptions.

    Don’t feel saddened but I understand you have seen ten times more Japanese rape porno than American/European porno. But that does not show Japanese pornography is rape-oriented.

    And i would have a hard time giving you all the links seen in the last 10 years so as to be able to say my assumptions a backed by hard fact.

    Japanese porno sites, like US porno sites, have several groups by which
    the viewer choose the subject like mature woman, students etc…I rarely see the category “rape”. If there is such a one, I guess that is one of many groups. How did you find out that rape porno is ten time as rampant as american porno?

    Beeing one of theses asian-lovers some people complain about i’ve been quite soon researching this kind of material and was surprised by the wide amount of rape porn in the japanese industry.

    The rape porno does not turn me on:still I enjoy Japanese porno sites.
    Does Asian-lovers especially love rape porno?

    It most probably concern all of asia.
    Also in japan after WW2 and the change in life that the american occupation had (mainly the imposition by the SCAP of equal rights between men and women) lead disoriented japanese writers like Shintarô Ishihara to write quite offending yet filled with talent rape and violence orientated books.

    I don’t see the connection between scap and violence oriented books.
    What was Georges Bataille influenced by ? Wasn’t “crash” violent novel?
    Besides I suggest you to watch Nikkatsu porno in 70’s and 80’s.
    Honestly I don’t remember ever watching rape-porno.

    Still among all of asia Japan is probably one of the country where sexual abuse and such is minimal (if not compared to other western country)

    I am afraid this might be taken as just a statement by some specific western person who consciously or unconsciously wants to sexually exploit Asian people unless it is backed up with hard facts.

    Maybe thanks to the high legalised oral prostitution and all theses rape movies serving as some sort of Catharsis. Or maybe i’m just over simplifying things

    I guess the latter is the case.

    Now I know little about other Asian countries, nor am I so familiar with American and European porno as I can talk about generally . But I think I can say, not influenced by Christianity, Japan and some other Asian nations has developed more open attitude toward sex. At the same time I also see rich erotic tradition in the West such as Marquis de Sade and Georges Bataille, to name a few.

    In any case,I am afraid a hasty generalization about Japan is just as bad as a hasty generalization about Korea, for that matter about western countries.

  31. comment number 31 by: Two Cents

    ponta,
    Although I am no expert on porn, since it’s such a male-perspective genre and really not that interesting to me, I do think there are substantial volumes of rape titles in Japanese porn (I can’t compare the ratio to porn in other countries). But I tend to think that it reflects the mindset of those involved in the industry, which in Japan is mainly the yakuza, and really don’t have anything to do with what the average Japanese think about rape.

  32. comment number 32 by: ponta

    Two cents
    I am not expert either. so I can’t compare the ratio either.

    It might be true that there are a lot of rape titles in Japanese porno,(but note that it is probably recent phenomenon): it is also true that there are a lot of Grannies Porn, or animal sex in the US sites, probably there are much more such porno in the US than in Japan. According to Kim myongan, western bondage is more violent than Japanese aesthetic /bondage….(so he claims)..
    But from these facts, what context justifis people to say US has ten times as many Grannies Porn as Asian nations? …….Nobody is claiming Japan is porno-free country, rather I claimed it was probably true that Japan had developed more open attitude toward sex……If it is stated in this form, what do you think the commenter’s intention is?

    In case of wjk, his intention was relatively clear .It seems he wanted to paint Japan as violent as possible so that people may be led to believe that Korea was victim of such a monster country.
    He persistently kept on claiming it on this blog and on Marmot.
    So I attacked him so that he may not try that again.

    But in case of Ocebey, I wonder what his point is. what do you think his intention is?
    .

  33. comment number 33 by: shadkt

    Saying “hard fact” when it’s the opinion of one person is not “hard fact”.
    For anything to be “hard fact”, unbiased statistical research is a requisite.
    I don’t know, maybe Ocebey can give us a link to site that has the list of all Japanese porn produced last year and out of those, the number of rape porn.
    That gives at least some form of statistic to start with.

    But if Ocebey feels his opinion can be considered as “hard fact”, he must have REALLY been watching LOTS of Japanese porn.
    I don’t know, them bitorrent things are giving these youths too much easy access to lust! lol

    In any case, at the base of it all, Japanese porn has nothing to do with these rape incidents, so why are they brought up in the first place??
    Really puzzling.

  34. comment number 34 by: Ocebey

    It’s indeed getting off track. I was mainly saying that considering there is much more japanese rap porn instantly available (thanks to theses bittorent things as shadkt says) on the internet regardless of wether you were looking for it or not (in my case i always stumble by accident upon it) that people like wjk could easily jump to conclusion.
    Because from the start it couldn’t become a hard fact i from the start stated it was an overall opinion (opinion beeing as not beeing hard fact or i’m having serious problem with english). Althought i’ve seen quite a bit of porn i never had the need to go to any porn site to see some. It was all directly availlable there and there. Now the high ratio of japanese rape oriented material could have well has been caused by coincidence or the fact the things availlable on bittorent is what’s pleasing people most at the time.

    As i somehow got this feeling i thought the bashing of wjk on this subjet was not entirely fair.
    Then there is also the fact that in normal movies, animation works and manga there is frequently rape situation that are added in the twist of the stories. It is included in the plots much more often than in the western plots. Yet again it could just mean that Japanese succeed in beeing more open about this problem and refuse to ignore it like westerners usually do (which would then be admirable).

  35. comment number 35 by: Ocebey

    By the way in my country there are no problem whatsoever with the Libanese community. It’s actually most efficiently integrated community up to the point it’s not considered a community anymore.
    But most of it is composed of christians and druze so i was wondering of which part of the libanese communities the Australian lebanese community was made of. Do anyone knows the figures?

    As i somehow got this feeling i thought the bashing of wjk on this subject was not entirely fair.

    I think it is entirely fair and completely justified. As you can see, he started it.,he kept claiming it, he should be held responsible for it.
    WJK is not the only Korean person but there are other Koreans who persistently bring this topic up. That show their peculiar interest, but I am sick and tired of hearing it.

    Then there is also the fact that in normal movies, animation works and manga there is frequently rape situation that are added in the twist of the stories. It is included in the plots much more often than in the western plots.

    Which “normal “animation is that?. All the animations I remember watching from my childhood has never depicted rape. Sariichan, Ashitano joe? Yamato? gundamu?You can see rape animation, of course,
    But unless you are Otaku or somebody, unless you choose to look at rape animation.(I admire Otaku in general , though) , you never see rape porno
    just as you never see granny porno in the US unless you choose to look at it.
    (there is much more US granny porno instantly available on the Internet regardless of whether you were looking for it or not, though I never feel like watching it. But I defend the pervert’s right to watch wired pornography)

    Now I agree eroticism, violence, death, love…..these are recurrent theme of literature in every culture. And as I said again and again, Japanese literature might be more rich from the ancient times in depicting eroticism than some western country.

    But if somebody say that “there is also fact, in normal movies, animation works and manga there is frequently pervert situation involving senior citizen and animals that are added in the twist of the stories, It is included in the plots much more often than in the Asian plots, I think he/she is very biased and wired.

    The rape is for pornography. And there are rape porno in Japan . And you chose to see many, so far I understand. But I am asking what the point of bringing up that topic?

    Who is bashing WJK? He boasts again and again that he watched rape porn. I guess he takes classes rape porn in his ‘fine finger” university.

    but from my viewpoint Japanese pornography have about 10 times more rape ,angst and such than classical american/european pornography.

    How in the world did you get that figure?

  40. comment number 40 by: Ocebey

    Ponta
    Well i probably have insisted too much on this one. Feels nice thought that you understood my goal there.
    By the way i don’t think the animation you saw when you were a kid (and which were probably translated stuff) were necesseraly a good sample of the availlable stuff. I got my hunch feeling from beeing a major otaku looking at hundreds of hours of animation per year for the last 10 years (mainly non rated stuff). I can offer no figure about it but felt this kind of twist in the plot were more often present in this kind of work. As i was getting fed up of the repetition in the western movies and such i was looking at it hooked me up so much that i learned japanese and went to a japanese university.

    The rape is for pornography.

    Again i can offer no figures. My feeling is just that japanese offer sometimes more interesting stories by adding things like rape and sex innuendo in stories that are absolutly not rated as porno. I actually think it’s a positive thing (much better than to just ignore it to stick to moraly and politicaly correct stories).
    Now i’ll just stop speaking about this subject cause it’s irrelevant.

    Matt

    Lebanese Muslims. Lebanese Christians are well integrated. The governor general of NSW is a Lebanese Christian.

    Thanks for the info. It makes more sense now. From my talks with my arabian and Muslim friends i sensed quite a bit of ressentment and rascism that was directed not at caucasians at all but at anglo-saxons in particular. Knowing that theses Lebaneses are of sunni and chiite origin makes it easier to guess what they’re thinking.

    This will be my last comment on this subject.
    I am not familiar with Otaku animation just as average Americans are not familiar with Granny porno. Some foreign bloggers knows Otaku much better than a naive Japanese. I enjoy reading the blogs in which the expats are surprised at different things in a different culture.

    My feeling is just that japanese offer sometimes more interesting stories by adding things like rape and sex innuendo in stories that are absolutely not rated as porno

    If you are talking about the normal Japanese novels and movies, and if you are talking about stories that offer sex innuendo, I can agree. But if you are saying Japanese offer more interesting stories by adding rape that are not rated as porno, I disagree.

    .As for a pornography, I defend the freedom of expression to the maxim, and people have right to imagine anything, wired , abnormal, etc, that turn them on.
    But sex and rape are different, Normal and abnormal are different though it might be difficult to draw a line. As much as expats in Japan loves Otaku, the confusion between the two, coupled with the confusion between the reality and imagination , and the misunderstanding of the culture, causes the trouble like nanpaboy
    in Japan.

    The reason I persistently comment on this subject is that this is a recurrent theme by some Koreans.
    Suppose someone alleges that Americans love to f*ck granny, that it is a part of its culture because there are sites on the Internet about granny porno in the US. Suppose someone else says that yes it has ten times as many such porno as other countries. Considering the rape rate of the US, probably statical data of the rape of senior citizens in the US is much higher than other countries. And fancy stories begin….a victor country must have desire to show macho even to granny etc.
    I think this kind of cultural analysis(?) is as useless as absurd.and if repeated, it is disgusting.
    I just wanted to stop that kind of crap by showing how to defeat the argument, by making him ashamed of himself every time he claims it.

    I know you had no malice intention I think you had a good intention to balance the argument I also hope you uderstand my intention.

    Lets not forget the not so far away tendency of us white men to go on and hang people on trees like we were holding a fucking matsuri or something.

    Does the fact that white Americans used to lynch black Americans disqualify white Australians from complaining about violence directed at them by immigrants?

    I just watched all the videos. BIZARRE. Just bizarre. Lebanese immigrants singing about hating Ozzies in Australian English, rapping like US urban gangsters, with Arabic singing in the background.

    Friendly advice to Matt,
    You might attract a larger and more diverse readership if you expanded your themes beyond the usual predictable “Oh, look at those Koreans!” Entries like this, with universal themes of migration and culture clashes, would appeal to a wider audience.

    I do not want to explore themes like migration and culture clashes, because discussion like that is illegal in my country. You should be glad that the founding fathers of your country took firm steps to protect speech. People are able to look at and discuss it, but if they come to the ‘wrong’ conclusion they are brought before the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission where they have to recant their heresy, pay a heavy fine, or go to jail.

    Most people simply self censor in this country, which is why we don’t have a vigorous media here, like the media that I saw in the states when I visited Hawaii last year.

    Lebanese singing about hating ozzies is called racism, and singing or rapping in Arabic is not bizarre. Is it so hard to imagine that people from other cultures rap in their own language. Sonaga, you seem to worship all things Korean, I am suprised you dont have a few DJ Doc CD’s in your world beat collection.

    Friendly advice to Sonaga, dont be so thin skinned when well informed rational people discuss Korea in an honest way.

    Last post from me, too, on the porn subject.

    It’s true that matter of rape are treated more in Japanese animation than U.S. animation. I mean, animation in U.S. is for KIDS. If anything even hints at rape, you’ll have parents hounding down the publisher and setting fire to the building :). It’s a big no-no.
    But then again, it is the reality that some women still suffer rape at the hands of some men, either to satisfy their lust or hate.
    Japanese animation does recognize that such crimes do occur and do sometimes incorporate it into the story. Does it mean that they are lauding rape? I think not. It may even help girls become more aware that there can be danger for them in the world around them.
    Now, if it’s a porn animation, I don’t know. I don’t watch those so I have no idea what they contain.

    Getting back to the thread issue, maybe being open and accepting of foreigners unconditionally is not a good idea, as can be seen from incidents from these and other recent incidents around the world. I think assimilating foreigners at the same time in accepting them in is necessary, and if the pace is too fast, it would only lead to violence like what we’ve seen so far.

    I don’t think it’s wise or safe to create many small divided communities within one’s own country.

    I’ve listened to Korean, Chinese, and Indian rap. The voices, however, sound too close to pop and lack the toughness of US rappers.
