From Andrew Bolt:
Before getting on to the latest example of how the stolen generations myth continues to harm and kill Aboriginal children, you can read how one of the chief propagandists of the myth, Robert Manne, continues to be unable to provide a list of even ten names, out of the 25,000 he claims were "stolen," who clearly and unambiguously were taken for no good reason.
Indeed he includes in a general response "a fatherless 12-year-old girl with syphilis, a 13-year-old who was seven months pregnant and working for no wages on a station, and a boy who was kept chained up in a back yard by white employers when he was bad."
Manne gives these three tragic and pathetic kids as part of his "proof" that Aboriginal children were "stolen!" Whereas the real crime for the state would have been not to take these terribly abused children into care.
So, if these are the kinds of cases that Manne has to refer to to support claims of a stolen generation, then what real evidence is there for it then? Remember that the Bringing Them Home report was based solely on the acceptance of untested anecdotes and claims by people. No effort was ever made to verify whether or not any of these were true.
Also, see how poisonous this myth has become - even producing false claims that "stolen" children had been used as guinea pigs for drug testing.
