What does it mean; to be 'Aussie'?
The first Prime Minister of Australia, Sir Edmund Barton, said, while speaking at a meeting in the town hall at Adelaide, on the 12th of February, 1901;
"The policy of this Government will be to bring about a white Australia. They will establish such Acts with reference to the influx of Asiatic races, as distinguished from the South Sea Islanders for the moment, as will effectually minimise and speedily put a stop to their introduction. (Cheers.) It seems to be forgotten by some people that I was the person who either moved or seconded - I forget which for the moment - the principal resolution carried at the first great meeting held in Sydney against the influx of Chinese. I have never wavered from that policy since, whether Chinese or any other Asiatic labour was concerned. Then I pass to the Kanakas. I have told you that the policy of the Government is to avoid the destruction of industries. We propose not to destroy the sugar industry - in fact, we are not going to equalize the import and excise duties on it - but we do propose to advance by gradual steps, not taking too long a time, though, to such a point as will put an end to the importation of Kanaka labour. There may be some who would say, demolish and abolish it at once. The answer to that is that those who believe that it is not a good thing for the whole country to suddenly destroy an industry will not take that step, but will be satisfied to see Australia made white under a just, temperate policy, and over a short period of years. That is the policy we will advocate, every industry in Australia is a national possession of Australia. If we deal with black labour in the way I have outlined, it is not because we want to deal harshly with the sugar industry, but it is because there is an interest of Australia, not only of labour, but one largely racial, which demands that there are certain things that must not take too long a time to eradicate. It is Australia we have at heart"
And the second Prime Minister, Alfred Deakin, proclaimed that;
"The unity of Australia is nothing, if that does not imply a united race. Unity of race is an absolute essential to the unity of Australia."
"We here find ourselves touching the profoundest instinct of individual or nation - the instinct of self-preservation. No motive power operated more universally on this continent or on the beautiful island of Tasmania, than the desire that we should be one people; and remain one people without the admixture of other races."
It is clear to anyone versed in Australian History that Australia was intended to be a nation homogeneous of race. Meaning, having a European Super-Majority.
For a long time, Australia was 99% European, predominately British in make up.
This Super-Majority of Europeans, has always been the will of the Australian people.
To be 'Aussie', to be 'an Australian', is to be 'White'.
