“These are friends we don’t need” : A Jewish response to the far right

September 9, 2011 – News & Politics

Liam Getreu

On this, Jeff Sparrow is correct. A coalition with the far-right is a very dangerous one not worth pursuing.

It’s certainly true that, throughout Australia, fascists are increasingly taking an interest in the Max Brenner rallies. But here’s the thing: they’re not supporting the protests.They’re supporting the stores.

The newest face of what’s euphemistically-called the ‘nationalist community’ is an outfit called the Australian Protectionist Party. The APP was formed by Mark Wilson, a former organiser of the fascist British National Party, who emigrated to Australia in the 1980s. One of the APP’s most active members is Nicholas Hunter-Folkes. He was formerly the administrator of a charming Facebook group called ‘F**k off, we’re full’. More recently, however, he launched a new Facebook event entitled ‘Protest Against the Mad Marxists’: essentially, a counter-rally in support of the Sydney Max Brenner shop.

“The hardline left, radical Muslim and student groups have been campaigning for the closure of any business with links to Israel,” he explains, “[…] The left totally ignore the aggression and agenda of the Islamists in the Middle East and also in Australia.”

Another prominent APP leader is Darrin Hodges, a long-time racist activist. Joe Hildebrand once identified Hodges as the semi-anonymous poster on the Nazi Stormfront site explaining that: “I’m more interested in the purer form of fascism… and while I don’t subscribe to the whole ‘worship Hitler’ thing, his comments on multiculturalism and politics in general are still just as relevant today as they were 70-odd years ago.”

In the UK, the link between Jewish groups and the far-right has become even closer:

Take the British National Party, the parent group inspiring the Australian Protectionist Party.

Its head, Nick Griffin, is a long-time fascist, who calls the Holocaust “the hoax of the century” and has named two of the pigs on his farm ‘Anne and Frank’. Yet the BNP under his leadership has positioned itself as one of Israel’s staunchest supporters.

As Ruth Smeed of the Board of Deputies of British Jews says: “The BNP website is now one of the most Zionist on the web – it goes further than any of the mainstream parties in its support of Israel.”

Why? Griffin explains that the real opportunity for his party comes from attacking Muslims. “We should,” he says, “be positioning ourselves to take advantage for our own political ends of the growing wave of public hostility to Islam currently being whipped up by the mass media.”

This isn’t good. I abhor BDS as much as the next guy, and the protestors on that side are joined by some truly disgusting and virulently antisemitic, anti-Western individuals (though not all of them are like that). But that doesn’t excuse the alliances on our side. We need to be careful that, when sharing our platform with others, and when seeking out coalitions (as we should), that we don’t partner with the wrong crowd. There are friends who truly share our goals and our values. But there are others whose own ideologies are so full of hate and bigotry that we need to stay well clear.

The Australian Defence League and Q Society types, and the Geert Wilders politicos they inspire and are aligned with, are only in partnership with us because they see us as a legitimisation tool and another way to spread their messages of hate. Ultimately, they don’t like Jews either, it’s just that, for now, they hate Muslims a whole lot more. Don’t think they won’t turn against us eventually, if or when they get the chance.

We need to find coalitions and friends to oppose BDS, but not at any cost. Fascists, true fascists, should not be first on our call sheets.

Racist T-Shirt Fail

“AUSTRALIAN’S (sic) HAVENT (sic) [GOT] ANYTHING TO HIDE[:] SAY NO TO [THE?] BURQA[S?]”

The Human Centipede – “John Harris” Exposed

What you’re about to read may be somewhat humorous and light-hearted, but at the root of it all are matters of the utmost grave seriousness. For a long time now, anti-racists have been attacked for expressing their freedom of speech – the freedom to oppose discrimination. Activists and their families have been threatened, property has been damaged, dead animals have been left in letterboxes and defamation has occurred at the hands of people behind fake profiles.

For a long time, we have argued the difference between what we do at our website, and what detractors do is in their response. When a person posts a racist comment on a publicly accessible webpage, we see no issue with re-posting it. After all, that person had no issues of attaching their name and photo to their hateful comments in a public forum in the first place, so it seems unusual that they would ever want us to remove our reference to them. But the next part is less clear to the haters:

Not one single antibogan author has ever attached a name to what is said here, and that’s not because what you see here is illegal. It is because discriminators have a history of taking the fight beyond the discussion grounds – to the anti-discriminator’s family, workplace and friends. Not one single antibogan author has ever attached their workplace to what is said here, and that’s not because there is anything here that would bring any company into disrepute. In fact, the overwhelming percentage of workplaces in Australia have anti-discrimination policies in place, and nearly always oppose racism. We don’t state our workplaces because they don’t deserve to be contacted and harrassed by psychotic neo-nazi white supremacists who take issue with race and culture equality being the norm in our country. Finally, at no point in time has a mirrored TAB website been opened, showcasing the discriminatory comments of those who come and visit here. That’s because people who oppose discrimination simply aren’t stupid enough to make potentially career-ending comments in a public forum. And THAT is the difference.

The evidence below will show that defamation has indeed occurred, at the hands of people who never believed they would be found out. The focus of this post is on the defamation of this website’s alleged creator – a school teacher with a history of activism in anti-discrimination.

If you’re an investigator, a journalist, a local member, a police officer or an interested party, the names you need to remember, the names of the people behind the hate pages and the names of the people who will be answerable are as follows:

Sandra Rogic aka Sandy Mitchell, Paul Toohey aka Alan Toohey, Scott Neale (APDM infamy) and Trilby Steinberger.

There are many more who have acted alongside these lowlifes, including Darryl Rock aka Shockadelic, Chris Merrett, Marina Chapman and Dave Allen to name just a few.

And now, on with the show…

*****************************************************

It’s Academy Award time again and we have a perfect plot for a film noir – depending on whether you prefer film noir or grindhouse that is.

So let’s unveil the plot.

Two bearded unprepossessing bums meet up with a glamorous vamp. Since neither vaudeville villain has the brains to find their own arses without considerable help, she persuades them to run an extortion racket online, targeting anti-racists by bullying and intimidation. They do this by a series of fake profiles armed with pictures stolen from people’s Facebook pages.

Movie Poster

Every dark melodrama queen needs to have an underlying motive. It could be revenge for love gone wrong, some imagined or real disadvantage, an imagined or real slight or nothing in particular at all. In fact watching the film noir bad girls of old as played by Bette Davis or Joan Crawford, today’s well-informed movie buff usually concludes quite correctly that the women they played were psychologically unhinged.

The  “theme” or “rationale”  if you can use such a word, is that racists and bigots have the right to spew their hatred on a public forum without any consequences for their action and that when action is taken then they are entitled to use illicit means to take revenge. The fact that vilification of minorities is illegal seems to have escaped this particular bunny boiler and her clown car conspirators because it is all about a profound sense of entitlement.

And where did the title come from? Well that should be obvious, though we have heard suggestion it should have been titled The Tripolar Hoop Snake – but unlike the grindhouse cult film of the same name no coercion is involved in the creation of this bottom-feeder – none whatsoever. The gleesome threesome happily hook up in a row for emotional chow time.

Stars love publicity, so let’s first take a peek at these stars in their brief mini-biographies.

SANDRA MITCHELL ROGIC

Sandy as she is popularly known lives in a coastal area of south-eastern Queensland where vicious predatory sharks are sometimes sighted. They are also sighted in the water.

Sandy loves walks on the beach, communicating with her fellow performers on Facebook and all things Serbian. Why Serbian? Whatever floats your boat Sandy…

It started with this

Personally we love Novak Djokovic, detest Slobodan Milosevic.

 PAUL TOOHEY

Paul TooheyPaul Toohey, journeyman wall and floor tiler who apparently enjoys the ambience of the Newcastle area when not in featured parts in cinematic vehicles,  known to the police, is the old fart elder statesman of the Pathetic Party and close friend to failed Fascist ideologue Darrin Hodges and failed political candidate future Prime Minister Nicholas Folkes. Last seen in the film  The Alamo where he reprises the John Wayne role in an action adventure set at Villawood Detention Centre. That film premiered on Sunday and shows the veteran fighter trying to hold back millions of asylum seekers  while valiantly standing his ground against armed-to-the-teeth militant terrorists a score or so of amused uni students.

Paul has undergone a rejuvenation in the last couple of years thanks to some snazzy barbering and a natty line in T shirts. Does this have anything to do with his alleged visits to a dating site?

Paul clearly enjoys his stint as “John Harris” and has also explored other roles, especially playing the roles of what he and Rogic imagine the anti-racists are like. This has involved among other things pretending to be a Muslim woman, obviously with one of his obsessions passionate interests in mind.

For we have heard that Paul is of somewhat a religious bent and has lately taken a keen interest in Hunter Valley houses of worship, both old and new. We expect to be able to look at his new interest in more detail soon.

SCOTT NEALE

Scott NealeScott Neale , also from the arse end of Queensland, also well acquainted with the constabulary, likes the simple life and frequently moves from place to place. Scott was heavily featured in fellow Queenslander Darren Morris-Bailey’s last film APDM Streetfighter but seems to have cut ties with the martial arts star and launched a newer, more literary direction in his work. As “John Harris” Scott Neale brings his own unique variety of boofhead idiocy quiet strength to this role.

Now all good movies  need a series of trailers to titillate the audience. Sit back and relax as we run you through these entertainment gems from the theatrical release.

Debbie and John Harris

Here you can see the Centipede’s keen interest in Indigenous Australians unfold – an important plot device for later in this production. You also get to see some of the supporting players in this ensemble cast showcased such as former Eastern European erotic star Michelle Johnson in a cameo role.

Intimate moment

Think of this as an intimate  moment between Paul and Scott. Some film critics have already compared their on-screen chemistry to that between the  protagonists in Brokeback Mountain.

Fuck TAB group

Intimate moment

Harris & Rogic

We are not sure who is occupying the John Harris suit in this intimate exchange he/they is/are having with their dominatrix, where they seem to be obsessed with a man dressed in a bear suit for a school fete. Truly a Fellini moment. Or something.

Our Revenge group

Another appearance from the man in the bear suit. Does it symbolise something akin to the bear in Hotel New Hampshire? Or more likely is it the consequence of the John Harris duo having visited another kind of hotel? We believe the lads both enjoy that immensely.

Sandy the fake lesbian

Alongside alcohol, the driving force seems to be menthol cigarettes. It certainly is for Debbie O’ Donnell, The Centipede’s resident fake lesbian. Is this some sort of code? Or is it supposed to indicate eroticism? What happens if “John Harris” has a headache? Do they butt out?

Distortions with Michelle and Shonk

A guest appearance from Shockadelic, everyone’s favourite boulevardier, the Noel Coward of Chippendale, touching base with Porn Queen and adding some chain-store psychology to the mix. Told you when we talk about this being a psychological thriller that the psychological refers to the florid neuro-processes of the main protagonists.

Nutzis working together

We think they were discussing the sexuality of the bear. Furries were not exactly an area which was explored in great detail in the classic films noir of old. But if the John Harris trio boys want a bit of plush porno then who are we to stop them? It certainly gets them heated up – CAPITAL LETTERS and all.

Spoof page1

Here’s a segment showing the template for one of their gay fake profiles. We were surprised “John Harris” knew so much about what gay people are supposed to like. Then again perhaps we weren’t surprised.

Harris the picture stealer

In a rare burst of heterosexual interest the fellas then decided to put up a picture of a woman who happened to be Muslim. The sheer weight of lewd interest in this cleverly executed scene shows the strain it places on the mental resources of Ma Harris’s boys as they struggle to spell difficult English words like “liar” and “yes”. But such a poignant moment of vulnerability.

Meanwhile, in a cunning bit of product placement, the admin of this group decided to post up a disclaimer. You could almost call this a The Usual Suspects moment.

Denial from Trilby

And now, if you can stomach it, feel free to peruse the collected evidence of the attempts to paint a school teacher anti-discrimination activist as a gay, transsexual paedophile psychopath. The journey begins with the lowest of acts – ‘John Harris’ creating a fake profile of the teacher and adding all of the students from his school and communicating with them both publicly and privately in an incredibly inappropriate, grooming kinda way.

Another Epic Fail By The APP and the ADL

How do you know when your racist, inbred circle of fuckheads’ rally against asylum seekers is a massive failure?

1. The media you invited outnumbers your protesters;

2. The only photos you post have single digit amounts of people.

3. You refuse to post estimations of attendance figures on any of your several websites and social media pages.

4. The people that did attend jump on Facebook and whinge about how people didn’t turn up.

5. The protest fails to make any sort of headlines – or even filler story.

6. Despite being one of the mostly heated and debated issues in Australian politics right now, a combined force of both the Australian Protectionist Party AND the Australian Defense League fail to attract more than 10 people to actually turn up.

3. Christopher John Merrett, Chris Merrett, CJ Merrett alias “Ralph Ball”, “Lizzy Dolphin”, “Frank Stawiarski, “gippy 257” etc. etc.

Anyone who has been posting regularly here will unfortunately know Ferret Merrett. Centrelink client, matrophobe, cyber-bully, neo-Nazi, white supremacist, misogynist, known to police, convicted felon – of such stuff are our enemies made.

But even Nature’s junkpile needs a root occasionally. So take a look at Ferret’s MSN profile.

Looks like he’s looking for someone to share his truly sad lifestyle with him. In fact he even found time to post his thoughts on marriage, his qualifications being he has at least one failed set of nuptials, with the former missus thankful no doubt she had dodged a bullet. Hopefully only a metaphorical one.

Merrett on marriage

Looks like a cut-and-paste to us from this maestro of manufactured personas.

It seems as if some time in the last couple of years Ferret may have got together with someone. Check out this profile.

Merrett finds love

Regular Facebook users will know the lovely Ms Wassenaar, from Murray Bridge, South Australia. You can follow her less-than-illustrious career through the turgid swamp that is far right politics in Oz by clicking on her name in the tag cloud.

Sami Jo last we heard was a trusted comrade of Pathetic Party leader Darrin Hodges and had some official capacity in the APP. Daz, who is paranoid to the max about his Facebook groups, having had a few snatched from him in the past, made her admin of at least one. Rather surprising given her association with a loud and proud anti-Semite, but maybe Daz, who has been cultivating his relationship with the Jews to avoid the fate of Frederick Toben increase his vote, chose to ignore it.

Or maybe he didn’t know? Well he will now.

This conversation with someone on a Facebook group page apparently run by Ferret is most revealing. We have disguised the identity of the other person, who has nothing to do with this post.

Wassenaar1

Sounds like she’s really hooked there. However, all this was some time back, and since Ferret loves this blog so much he visits every day, we’d really like to hear his version… or is there something he doesn’t want us to know? Are they still an item?

In that case we’d like to hear the truth.

It’s official – Nick Folkes hates Filipinos

Let’s face it, Straya’s next Prime Minister Nicholas Hunter Folkes really hates some people.

He hates Muslims. He is prominent on anti-Muslim websites, and was seen lurking in the carpark in Laman Street Cooks Hill prominent at the recent anti-Muslim nano-demo in Newcastle.

He has also demonstrated his hatred for Indians, Aboriginal people, Asians in general, Africans, just about anyone from the Middle East, women who don’t like Nicky feminists, gays and lesbians, anti-racists, all three major political parties, anyone to the left of John Howard, asylum seekers, refugees, immigrants in general who are not like him…

All we can say for sure is that Nicky doesn’t hate Russians because he is of Russian descent himself, though in the process of bogot assimilation he managed to score a rather splendidly Pommy upper-class sounding monicker. Must sound most impressive when you are paged at TigersBalmain Leagues Club.

He also prefers to live in the inner city, surrounded by those very leftist latte-sipping unwashed Green academic dole-bludging lesbian faggots he and his cronies so detest, rather than taking himself to some rool Strayan area with lots of Right-finking white folks who’d never be on any government benefits or tax concessions. Nooo.

So we were not at all surprised when revisiting our files to discover that the bogots’ future charismatic leader in diplomatic conversation some years ago with members of British neo-Nazi fail fringe party the BNP, and declaring a full-blown hatred for…wait for it…Filipinos.

Nick Folkes at the BNP group

Knuckle-draggers Keith McFarlane and Steve Stead chip in with the usual xenophobic vile chav tripe one has come to expect from members of a failed political party set up by a convicted crook. However one would think one could expect better from one of Straya’s self-appointed “leaders”. Even on Facebook.

No such luck. Take a look:

Filipinos are gold diggers

The Filipinos will build shanty towns

Their qualifications are not the same standard as Britian’s (sic)

In the last one he is presumably making comparison with the sages with whom he is talking.

Unlike Nicky however, Filipino immigrants have been a great Australian success story.

Such as this young woman:

Kristine Aquino: Anti-racism Researcher

Perhaps Nicky should read her research findings. And keep his hate to himself.

The APP grapples sweatily with same-sex marriage

On very rare occasions the Australian Pathetic Protectionist Party moves away from vilifying Muslims and ponderously chews over other issues.

Failed serial political candidate Nicky Folkes is bursting with excitement about a new petition he has found to sign.

APP Gay Marriage

Leaving aside the fact that the Labor National Conference delegates are unlikely to take any notice of him and his micro-party and with  his newly-discovered aptitude for theology Nicky then breathlessly informs the masses that the PM is possessed by the devil. We hope he has let the Labor Party know.

But wait!  APP stalwart Anna Dean dares to disagree with Nicky. Not only does she dare to disagree with Nicky she makes an intelligent observation while doing so.

Sadly this amazing event lasts a mere nanosecond as Christian soldier Harry Grech wades in, tells Anna to shut up  and treats fellow party members to his deeply intimate knowledge of same sex relationships.

In fact the only concession to compassion Harry the Hero will make is that he wants little kids to stop getting their heads twisted – something they have no doubt learnt from the APP.

APP Gay Marriage 3

Speaking of twisted heads, let’s go back to Nicky. After making a blanket statement about the Liberal Party which is not quite true (a controlling faction of the party is against same sex marriage, its leader has confessed he is “scared” of gays, but a considerable number of individual Coalition politicians are not), in order to maintain control  he then asks Anna a completely pointless question. Nicky then conflates same sex marriage with “the destruction of the family unit” and of course drags in his favourite political scapegoats, the Greens.

And Nicky, by the way we happen to think that a compassionate, decent, intelligent and tolerant Bob Brown would be a much better father to anyone’s kids than would just about any member of an intolerant racist misogynist white exceptionalist party like the Pathetics.

But there’s more. Enter the APP’s own sexpert Bec Atkins, accompanied by Dirty Harry, to add their 5c worth of mythology.

Bec is rather keen on this “species furthering” stuff. Maybe she’s trying to get a one-woman membership drive going for the Pathetics?  Maybe Bec should take up dog-breeding?

Nick Folkes chimes in

Err…hate to tell you this Nicky but “marriage” is not thousands of years old – not for the general population. Women (and to some extent men) were barter objects used by wealthy and/or powerful parents to cement alliances, ensure dynastic continuity and safeguard financial and property assets. People of the non-monied classes simply co-habited with the person they chose, or in the case of poor women, were abducted, or in the case of slave women, were often made part of a wealthy man’s harem. Their fates are not recorded.

APP Gay Marriage 5

Now grizzled veteran Jean Gilmour enters the fray. Jodie Smith is another one who is offering intelligent and reasoned opinions and Jean is here to put a stop to all that nonsense.

Then having put that unruly gel in her place, Jean climbs her personal Mt Sinai, assumes prophetic mode and declaims

God's law

 Imagine, a far right misogynist homophobic party with absolutist religious foundations. Do the Pathetics have a real Hizbollah thing happening there?

Bogot Family Values

Bogots always like to assume a position of  defenders and upholders of “traditional family values”, whatever they are. For instance one of the bogots’ favourite Facebook groups political parties, the APP, has this phrase as part of its party policy.

APP policy

Most of the far right in fact espouse similar high-minded phrases when they struggle to wrap an inherent hatred against  women, gays and non-nuclear families into an attractive parcel. Their preferred model is definitely from a nostalgic past which most have never experienced and which was largely the product of advertising and propaganda.

Traditional family

However it doesn’t take long for the real them to come bubbling to the surface.

Blow job

Blowjob is very emotional about women in defence roles. They should be in the kitchen cooking his dinner, since he knows it is not a good idea to let ten-year-olds like him use electrical appliances unsupervised. We are still puzzled how anti-submarine crews, who presumably are at sea on warships, are going to get “raped by Muslims” or by anyone else for that matter. Statistically women are more at risk of being raped if they are at home, and their assailant is usually someone they know – like a partner, a boyfriend, a relative or an acquaintance.

We’d be taking our chances on anti-submarine patrol thanks.

Two bogot males discuss same-sex relationships. We suspect that happens a lot.

Andy Watts

Luke Harding obviously knows how to communicate with marsupials, as well as with God. Imagine, the Almighty is a prescient bilby with the power of speech!

One wonders why the CSIRO haven’t yet snapped Luke up.  However along comes Iskak who sets him straight on human anatomy – and we bet Iskak has spent a lot of time looking very carefully at men to come to his conclusions.

We always figured Andy Watts was…err…unique and now we know why. On his home planet, you get instant babies. McDonald’s should franchise this.

Watts burger

And we imagine Andy would be up there for first bite.

Now here we have Bec the neurologist – well maybe the differences in brain functions between Bec and normal humans are vast.

Bec Atkins

The last sentence is a complete mystery. Are they hugging trees perhaps? Talking to plants? We thought the bogots disapproved of that.

Now let’s eavesdrop on a nutzi group therapy session, where participants confess what we already had suspected.

Rejects

So embracing hate politics leads to family breakdown.

And despite Marg’s last utterance (which sort of goes with the idea of a Fascist fast food franchise – you listening Andy Watts?) all we can say is – we told you so.
