Dr Jim Saleam, (yes he has a rool Ph.D from the University of Sydney no less) the ageing Führer of a tiny bunch of middle-aged mentally challenged Reich re-enactors known as the Australia First Party, does not emerge from obscurity very often to comment on the doings of the far left. However, for some reason some news from far away West Australia caught his eye and his ire.
So what was so momentous about the death of a little-known member of one of the two tiny Marxist-Leninist parties left after the old Communist movement virtually disappeared in Australia?
Why was the old despot aroused enough to be invoking the names of three of his hated ideological foes in one bilious paragraph?
Well, it was obviously the words “transgender woman“.
We were also amused to discover that Dr Jimmy assumes that his Russian foes, despite their great ideological shortcomings, are red-blooded heterosexual men – like the image of himself which he likes to convey – who would mutter darkly into their vodkas at any hint that their revolutionary movement could contain such followers.
Here is Amber’s own story as told to the Socialist Alternative zine Red Flag.
So what’s more “beneath contempt” Jimmy – a bunch of elderly nutzis whose whole life is all about hate or a young person who while she was alive seemed to be all about love?
