Have a gasp after reading this:

The Aboriginal race has died out in the South and is dying fast in the North and West even where most gently treated. Other races are to be excluded by legislation if they are tinted to any degree. The yellow, the brown, and the copper-coloured are to be forbidden to land anywhere.
How racist can you get, and do you know who said it? Don't cheat. Leave Google alone.

What an arsehole, a celebrated one.

First, not everyone shared XXXXXXX's views on race and its political application. It may be unrealistic to have expected XXXXXXXXX to listen to objections made by the peoples who were subject to his racist legislation, but there were critics of his position inside and outside of parliament, as well as critics in London. Even though XXXXXX's racism enjoyed wide support it was not a unanimously held view.

Second, XXXXXXX’s racism was exceptional for the way it permeated and shaped his progressive liberalism. XXXXXXX was greatly influenced by Charles Pearson and his theory of ‘the white man under siege’ by black and Asian races. Pearson also put forward the idea that Indigenous peoples were dying out, which is reflected in the quote above. (What is posted in the OP.) incorporated Pearson’s theories on race into his political liberalism. The free and democratic life that he promoted was dependent on a White and homogenous race that spoke one language. This racism materially shaped a nation. The point is that XXXXXXX’s racism was not something he merely absorbed from a racist culture he inhabited, but it was actively thought-out and structured his politics.

I remember an interview with Malcolm Fraser some years ago where he was recounting a comment from John Winston Howard on leaving a press conference outlining Australia's plans to take in Vietnamese refugees. Apparently Howard said something like "It's all for show though, isn't it? We don't really want these people here do we?".

Fraser said it typified the man.

We have form, this great Southern land.

Can't find anything on the www to support that allegation re: Howard.
