03 – Aborigines Today

Warren Mundine (part Aborigine) told us the facts in the Australian Newspaper recently about shifting Australia Day to a different date.

The following excellent reply/comment was posted.
On 26 January 1788 when the First Fleet ships unloaded their c1200 convicts, Royal Marine guards and officials not a shot was fired. As they looked around what’s now Circular Quay they saw nothing other than bush. Not a single building, planted field, domesticated plant or animal – nothing at all. It was the same across the continent. It was “terra nullius” – a vacant land.

There was no Aboriginal Army to defeat in battle. There was nothing to claim as the spoils of victory. There was just wild bush. The few Aborigines who came out to have a look at these strange people were completely illiterate and innumerate and those on the south side of the harbour spoke a language completely unintelligible to those on the north side of the harbour and they’d been constantly at war with each other for as long as anyone can remember.

There was no “invasion”.

Captain Phillip was instructed by the government in London to treat the natives “with amity and kindness” and he did. No Aborigines were shot; no platoon of Marines fixed their bayonnettes or loaded their muskets or took a shot at anyone who emerged from the bush to see what was going on. Instead they offered them gifts and friendship.

Most people now “identified” as “indigenous” – like myself and my children and grandchildren have European – mostly British – ancestry to a greater or lesser extent. I recently had a DNA test done that shows I’m 48% Irish, 20% English, 30% Scandinavian, 1% Spanish and 1% Aboriginal. The absurdity is that, in this time of identity politics, I am an “Aborigine” by virtue of the fact that one of my Irish ancestors married and Aboriginal woman 6 generations ago.

There is no reason to change Australia Day. It was the day “Australia” came into being and had it not been for those British coming ashore on 26 January 1788 I wouldn’t exist and neither would Mr Mundine. The name “Mundine” is as English as a cold pork pie or fish-n-chips wrapped in newspaper.

It’s time for all indigenous people to get over what happened 229 years ago and stop playing the victim.

Cape York – The Savage Frontier

The remarkable work of Queensland author Rodney Liddell asserts, from studying the ‘Jardine Diaries’, the original Pygmies were hunted down and (nearly) wiped out by invading aborigines from India. The tip of Cape York was one of the major landings used by the invaders who arrived from the islands in canoes and rafts. An interesting read.

Rodney Liddell’s book of well researched facts told history as it really was, so upset a lot of people who had delusionary and fanciful interpretation of history that suited their petty contrived theories, they tried to have Federal Parliament censor the facts to suit their illusionary thinking rather than face historical reality. It appears a lot of this puerile attitude still resides in the community.

Detailed accounts of the atrocities of aboriginals on shipwrecked Europeans have been compiled by Rodney Liddell. His book Cape York – The Savage Frontier is essential reading for all concerned with correcting the fictionalised re-writing of Australian history. Available from Box 190, Redbank Plaza, Redbank, Queensland 4301.                                                          
The product of 10 years of research by the author into original
documentation held in libraries and archives, Rodney Liddell’s “Cape
York – The Savage Frontier”, the book that the Commonwealth parliament
tried to censor, purports to portray history as it really happened.

In researching the history of Cape York Liddell found it necessary to
re-trace the origins of man on the Australian Continent. It soon
became apparent that the latest anthropological evidence shows very
clearly that the “First Australians” were not the dark skinned natives
seen by Captain Cook in 1770.

The story that few Australians have been taught starts with a natural land bridge connecting Australia and New Guinea said to be 100 miles wide and [160 km] consisting of vast lowlands and undulating hills which was generally believed to have been breached by rising sea levels between 6500 – 8000 years ago creating 200 islands within a shallow sea now known as the Torres Strait. Prior to the separation the Paupans had access to the whole continent including Tasmania.

Liddell’s draws on research carried out by eminent anthropologists Reverend E.R. Gribble and Professors Haddon and Elkin in the late 19th and mid- 20th centuries to present a compelling case for his prehistory of Australia. According to E Gribble in “A DESPISED RACE”: “The first inhabitants [of Australia] were a negroid race being curly haired. Later came the [Pre] “Dravidians“ A straight haired race driven from Egypt, through the north of India.”

The author points to indications of the use of the boomerang in South India and Ceylon and the discovery of two model boomerangs wrought in silver in King Tutankahamen’s tomb. He suggests the dingo, which is said to originate in India, was brought to the Australian mainland by the invaders. On the other hand, in Tasmania, which was closed off by the formation of Bass Strait, only evidence of the curly haired Paupuan race has been found, and no dingoes. The Native almond or Sea almond (also known as the Indian Almond), which can be found growing all over Northern Australia, was probably a vital food source carried by the Pre-Dravidians in their canoes on their long sea journey to Australia.

Liddell rejects the “False Aboriginality” of the 40,000 year myth and makes the startling claim that considering the dingo has been carbon dated at only 4,000 years, taking into account the inaccuracy of carbon dating which is rapidly being rejected as unreliable worldwide, then it is very possible that Aborigines may have been in occupation of the Australian continent for less than 1,000 years.

Liddell’s expose reveals the raw savagery that existed amongst the native tribes of Cape York and the Torres Strait Islands with Aborigines exterminating up to 150,000 Paupans in what would be classified in today’s world as genocide and tens of thousands of their own people in their savage tribal conflicts in which the weaker tribes were totally annihilated, by the time the first Europeans had arrived. He catalogs accounts of numerous shipwrecks around the Australian coastline, with the castaways from these vessels set upon by hordes of savages as they rowed ashore with hundreds of helpless men, women and children brutally slaughtered by club and spear. Rejecting claims by modern academics that Aborigines were not cannibals as absolutely false, he asserts that many were eaten, whilst others were beheaded in Northern Australia and the nearby Torres Strait Islands and still others more were kept as slaves and slowly worked to death, whilst subsisting on starvation diets.

He questions the image of the Ancient Aborigine as a timid native who lived in harmony with the environment with evidence which shows that many birds and animals were hunted to extinction before the arrival of Europeans, and that thousands of square miles of forest was deliberately burnt out to attract game to open grassland that replaced the forest. Even today in many areas of Northern Australia, turtles are ruthlessly hunted down by the Aborigines and cut open whilst still alive. On what he calls the “greatest academic cover up the world has ever witnessed”, aided and abetted by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Liddell states: “It is no coincidence that many anthropologists involved in promoting this false aboriginality are the most highly paid academics in Australia…In recent years the Australian public have been subjected to a massive indoctrination campaign, designed to “Mentally Program” Australians, into accepting a mass of false and misleading information relative to the occupation of Australia by aborigines.

Almost daily the public are swamped with this false advertising through television, newspapers, radio and magazines. Even school children cannot escape this web of academic deception, for the Education Department is controlled by the very people who promote it.
All the evidence clearly identifies the Papuan as being the original Australian. Numerous anthropologists have acknowledged that fact, but are ignored by Universities who are paid millions of dollars to force feed the public with a false pre-history of Australia.”

Published by the author Cape York – The Savage Frontier is a thoroughly researched 288 page hard cover which chronicles the history of this fascinating area, jam packed with 32 colour plates and numerous black and white photographs with numerous historical
references and provides the unvarnished facts about an Australian frontier of which so little is known. Now in its 5th print run Liddell’s monumental work is now more popular than ever.
A good read for all those interested in factual Australian history. “Cape York – The Savage Frontier” is also available on loan from most State Libraries through your local library. 

The Tasmanians were here first

The ice-age had melted and the sea level again rose isolating Tasmania preventing the Indians getting there and taking the Dingo with them. Thus, the dingo never killed off the Tasmanian Devil or Thylacine as they did on the mainland.  The Tasmanian aboriginals were the earlier people of Australia, of short stature and frizzy hair from Papua, that the later aboriginals killed off on the mainland.

The current Aboriginals are NOT and never were the nation’s first people, there were many races before them who left their artifacts and widely different rock art as evidence — that the current mob are committing fraud by claiming it was their ancestors — it is not, they were not related to the previous people who inhabited Australia.

In 265 AD: The “Atlas of Foreign Countries”, written between 265 and 316 A.D., Chinese Sea Captains describes the far north coast of the mysterious great south land as being inhabited by a race of one-metre-tall black pygmies — an obvious reference to the pygmy-sized Aboriginals identified by Australian anthropologist Norman B. Tindale in the mountains above Cairns, Queensland.

In the 1400’s and 1500’s, Dutch and Portuguese sailors sighting the Western Australian coastline noted “tall natives in warfare chasing and killing hordes of “little” native peoples”. Early explorers and settlers’ brothers Frank and Alexander Jardine (The Jardine diaries) who settled Cape York recorded how they witnessed the little Negritos being hunted down like kangaroos by the taller aborigines.  Were the little people easier to hunt than kangaroos?

Pre-1770 explorers such as William Dampier, who visited West and Northern Australia in the late 1600’s, described the existence of a race of short people with “hair curled like the Negroes” – clearly not the modern Indian aborigine. The legend of the Kimberley Gwion Gwion paintings, is the old red paintings are self-portraits of ‘giro giro’ tiny people who lived in the area in the past.  Very similar to Papuan paintings, the Papuan Tasmanian people were here long before the Indian mob arrived.
