he actually hasn't agreed with this argument so your wrong on that part. and no most people who are arguing are not doing it for the sake of arguing but because you are wrong as history buff has shown.

no, you're wrong. a nationality is not a race in most cases. for example I'm Canadian. Canadian isn't a race. someone who hates Canadians isn't being racist.

Most people who arent arguing just for the sake of arguing would agree that whag i have described is racism.

Sorry but youre trying too hard to not agree.

"Dual citizenship is about nationality not race" yet if somebody said they hate all Chinese people you would call him a racist. If somebody said they hated all Nigerians, you would call them racist etc etc. The analogies are endless,your argument is void and you splitting hairs is not making it any less void.

Not allowing people of dual nationality to be in parliament is racist and very very stupid, especially seeing as none of the whites in the Australian parliament are natives to Australia anyway (hint: White people are from Europe). It is nothing like comparing sexism to racism, how did you even remotely manage to find a link between those 2 comparisons? wow just wow. Yet you will call the Trump travel ban a Muslim ban.

The point im making here is that you somehow managed to traverse the ends of the Earth in order to find a fallacious analogy of saying that what i said is like saying sexism is racism but then you split hairs to your hearts content in order to deny that this policy of the Aussie govt is racist even though you know in a different situation you would call it racist (for example if TRUMP decided to pass a law stating people with dual nationality cant be in the US congress)...the hypocrisy....is astounding.

dual citizenship is about nationality, not race.

It may or may not be bigoted, but it's not racist. just like being sexist isn't racist. words have meaning mr. philosopher... it'll be good to learn them before trying to make an argument.

Also, just because you put the word "like" between 2 unrelated points doesn't mean you suddenly have a valid analogy. blacks weren't enslaved for their loyalty. They were enslaved for their labor.

haha nice try going for slavery but they are not there because their race. let's say they do let people of dual citizenship in. if from whatever their other country comes into conflict with Australia do you not think their loyalty is at least challenged? at least think about the situation before jumping on it. and again trying to insult your opponent is one of the weakest defence though I will give you points for defending your position in it.

And understand that if i do not give you a response it is not because i "dont have an argument" (as you really hope) but because i dont like kicking dead animals.

Admit defeat to what? somebody that believes that dual citizenship in Australia is not allowed in parliament in order to "make sure they are loyal"? Does no other country have politicians with dual citizenship in their legislatures? Do you believe slavery in America was allowed too in order to make sure the blacks "stay loyal"? oh dear oh dear. im not hear to educate you on the definition of racism. open a book for once and stop embarassing yourself.

oh dear, you again have no argument and go back to trying to insult. this is just sad. either give an argument or admit defeat. the rest of what you have been doing is pathetic rambling.

Oh dear, youre being emotional and making irrational arguments again out of your spite towards me for destroying your faith in your religion. Please have a nap and come back when your mind is objective.

what does that have to do with racism? they want to make sure that the government is loyal to it's people

For example you cant be in parliament if you have dual citizenship.
