Professor Fozdar said 43 per cent of those with car flags said they believed the White Australia Policy had saved Australia from many problems experienced by other countries
56 per cent of people with car flags feared the Australian culture and its most important values were in danger
Those with the flags were less likely to feel positive towards Aboriginals, Muslims, asylum seekers and Asians in Australia, the research found.
While i am not racist, i can't believe that such a study was undertaken. In my opinion, someone who flies their flag on Australia Day is proud of their country, not racist.

Seems it's not allowed to be proud and show your pride for your country anymore. I bet this is going to become 'politically incorrect'

This is part of the globalist agenda... to associate nationalism with deep negativity; in this case, racism.
The same thing is happening elsewhere. In the UK, the EDL has been mauled by the government and media as being right-wing and racist. In the US, people who have pride in their nationality often invite character assassination.
In order to destroy nationalistic pride and erase national borders, there has to be both the dilution of the civil populace by forced foreign immigration and the absolute denial of national pride along with any claim to its history. This is accomplished by tagging those who resist as being racists and/or right-wing extremists.
Unfortunately, many buy into the program without giving much thought to the long term ramifications.
