    Thanks for introducing us to a very interesting Victorian success story who happened to be Chinese.

    I take issue with your equating the Chinese exclusion laws to placing a short-term restriction on admission of muslims into the United States. To my knowledge, the
    Chinese were not a physical assault threat–it was, unfortunately, pure racism. We have many recent examples, however, of muslims using machetes, automatic weapons, and rape against American citizens. A better vetting process must be developed before an onslaught of hate-filled anti-Christians are admitted.

    White Australians and New Zealanders want East Asian money but they do not want East Asians around them, lately courtesy of the Australian Labor Party, which under Bill Shorten has made a 180 degree turn since the time of Prime Minister Rudd.

    The funny thing is now Prime minister Turnbull from Liberal party like to work with China more than the Labor party! Could it be because his daughter in-law is ethnic-Chinese?

    And Prime minister Rudd’s son in-law is also ethnic Chinese from HK, China! These Prime minister knew China a bit better I think!
