Pauline Hanson has rubbished suggestions from the Islamic Council of Victoria that Muslim youths should be provided with taxpayer-funded ‘safe spaces’ to make ‘inflammatory’ and ‘frank’ comments out of the public eye.
The One Nation leader said she was ‘totally against’ the proposal, which is an effort by Muslim leaders to tackle the growing problem of radicalised youth in Australia.
‘What a load of rubbish! How much more money have we got to put in to this to make them feel good about themselves?,’ she told Samantha Armytage on Sunrise.
…. In a submission to a parliamentary inquiry into freedom of religion, Islamic leaders have demanded government funding for anti-terrorism and anti-extremism should be used to create the religious sanctuaries.
‘To create safe spaces urgently needed by Muslim youth to meet and talk about a range of issues in emotional terms, where they can be frank and even use words, which in a public space would sound inflammatory,’ the submission reads.
‘That they cannot express irony, humour, anger or joy in words and facial expressions that would make them a target for ‘surveillance’ is a cause for despondency leading to mental health issues among many.’
[TOP RATED COMMENT 108 votes] I really do not get this. The issue is about radical Muslims, yet they seem to think that they are entitled to money. If, across the western world, Muslims cannot live in harmony and accept the ways of the host country, then they need to be removed.
[2ND 103] They just don’t understand, do they Pauline … and they never will … their way of life is totally incompatible with Australia, it’s values and way of life.
[3RD 101] More of my tax dollars …. to people that hate and kill us?
[4TH 94] These councils should be abolished and those who feel they can’t live here for what ever reason should leave. [Daily Mail] Read more
