“Last week there was a terrible incident that took place in Melbourne. Sadly it’s not the first terrorist-related incident to take place in Melbourne. We need to recognise this scourge is with us, and with us for a long period of time.”
But why, Mr. Dutton? Why is this scourge with us for a long period of time? One reason is because you and your colleagues refuse to name it for what it is, or to deal with its ideological roots. Thus it can and will keep cropping up in ways you do not anticipate, as in this case with Momena Shoma. Another reason is because of immigration policies that your government indefatigably pursues, bringing in Muslim migrants among whom are always an unknowable number of jihad terrorists, without even making any serious attempt to screen them (which is well-nigh impossible anyway).
So yes, you’re right, sir: this scourge will be with Australia for a long period of time. And if Australia survives as a free nation, future generations will point at you and your colleagues for bringing that scourge upon your nation.
