Daryl Williams was the minister for propaganda (or some such thing) in the early days of the John Howard regime. Williams set the scene for his brand of “democracy” the morning after the Liberals came to power in late 1996. When asked, on Channel 10, if he thought all Anglo-Saxons were racists, he said, “Yes, undoubtedly.” If Australia is a racist country, it is racist pigs like Daryl Williams who make it so! Not the 70% of Aussies from an Anglo-Saxon background!

The minister for propaganda
Has evil words to say,
He slanders Celts and Saxons
Belittling our race.
He says that we’re all racists
We’re evil because we’re white,
And like those good men Boothe and Oswald
We’d love to get him in our sights.

He says that only blacks,
Gays, and women should have rights,
He says that mind games are fine
As long as they hurt only whites.
“Political correctness is fine and dandy,”
That’s what this most foul man wrote,
He doesn’t care about fairness
Now democracy has no hope.
