Party for Fascism Freedumb and the pathway to fail

Nicholas Folkes and his fast-diminishing fan club, now called the Party for Freedumb or something equally dopey, are the Don Quixotes of the far right.

quixote

Don Niqi does the stupid again

You would think that at some stage some kind person would take them aside and point out what muppets they are. But instead they keep on the same pathway to fail.

The pathway to fail in this instance was Sussex Street Sydney on Sunday 20th June outside the closed-for-the-weekend Labor Council office during World Refugee Week. And with typical strategic foresight the Pffs decided to hold their gigantic big huge awesome demo. Something about visa overstayers…?

1. on a Sunday in the middle of winter
2. in what is effectively a narrow one way street

To top it all off Sussex Street is almost in Chinatown. How the bogots must have been filled with fear to see the thousands of local and overseas Asians who flock there at weekends to sample the retail and culinary delights of nearby Haymarket.

Here is Niqi’s pathetic little hate gathering.

Thousands  Hundreds A few Muslim haters shivering outside an evil green socialist left-wing building with a blue car.

Thousands Hundreds A few Muslim haters shivering outside an evil green socialist left-wing building with a blue car.

Here is the real Rally for Refugees, attracting hundreds of people held at the Town Hall on the same day and featuring well-known guest speakers.

We can tell you who featured at Sussex Street. Niqi’s new Sancho Panza, Ralphski.

pffdemo15

Here’s Ralphski all kitted up in hate gear. He has also come to our attention before.

Ralph also likes to contact women he doesn’t even know. That must be why he is currently desperate and dateless. Note the breathtaking sophistication of the message.

pffdemo16a

Ah well he always has Niqi. Niqi doesn’t like women all that much either.

Now Niqi was it really fair to subject those 15 odd definitely mentally impaired racists to the horrors of multicultural Sydney with all those scary people of a different colour and all that delicious foreign food when all they want to do on a cold Sunday is to huddle at home like troo Strayans and watch people whom they think look like them on the telly?

And always the copycats, they cannot even copy-and-paste their own party correctly. Niqi has long insisted that his new Facebook group party is modelled on his hero Geert Wilders’ Freedom Party.

However there is one glaring difference. Wilders it seems has no problems with GLBTI rights and same sex marriage. Everything with his limited issue party is subsumed to the task of ridding the Netherlands and Europe of “teh_mooslems”.

By contrast Niqi’s PFF party is all over the shop with “policies” on everything grabbed from a motley array of far right sewers including Fred Nile’s Christian Democrats, Niqi’s former home the Australian Pathetic Party, the League of Rights, One Nation… you get the picture?

We won’t bore you with a link but if you want to have a laugh just Google “Party for Freedom”.

Niqi has also been somewhat out of favour with certain other nutzis because he has an Asian wife – despite his well-publicised vilification of Filipino women and his championing of white exceptionalism.

And here’s a demo evaluation from some senior sources in the Pff

Geert Wilders in Australia, February 2013

slackbastard

Posted on February 2, 2013 by @ndy

Update : Fairfax has an article on Wilders’ tour titled ‘White supremacists ready for fight’ (Natalie O’Brien, The Age, February 2, 2013). It refers, inter alia, to the ‘Australian New Nation’ website — established several years ago in order to replace the White Pride Coalition of Australia site — and the Internet radio show ‘Australia Calling’. ‘Australia Calling’ is produced by Brisbane nazi Carl D Thompson, who briefly came to public attention some years ago when he lost his job editing the One Nation newspaper after publishing some anti-Semitic material.

Muslim-hating Dutch rightist Geert Wilders is gonna be touring Down Under in a few weeks. The Flying Dutchman’s tour is being organised by an anti-Islamic group known as the Q Society, and Wilders is scheduled to speak in Melbourne on the 19th, Perth on the 20th and Sydney on the 22nd of February, with the venues only being announced a day or two prior.* Unsurprisingly, having already roused controversy, Wilder’s tour is expected to generate some opposition, but also a good deal of support, especially among the far-right fringe. To that end, a number of individuals drawn from racist and fascist groups will be attending Wilder’s events :– some ostensibly in order to protect them from disruption.

Or were . . .

Within 48 hours of declaring that it was the sacred duty of White racialists to attend Wilder’s event in Sydney — largely in order to show the dastardly Reds who’s boss — Welf Herfurth — the leader of the minuscule forces of the New Right (NR) in Australia — changed his mind, and declared it to be a positively dreadful idea, one which risked aligning the NR with Zionists (ergo Jews).

Well, kinda . . .

Actually, the former NPD, ON and Democrats (!) member was admonished by his master, Troy Southgate, to pull his head in and think a li’l moar about the implications of aligning his handful of followers with The Jew. Thus:

Note that Herfurth’s mob last reared its head in Sydney back in November, when police provided them a platform at a Palestine solidarity rally; Herfurth himself is a Holocaust denialist and strong supporter of his kamerad Uncle Fred Toben.

Australian Protectionist Party & Conservative Islamophobia

Of course, support for Wilder’s message also extends deep into the conservative heartland, and includes prominent Muslim-baiters in the Tory party as well as handsomely-paid hacks in the corporate and state media. Further, the conservative embrace/promotion of paranoid fears over Muslamics has stolen a good deal of oxygen from a number of racist, right-wing fringe-dwellers, including Anders Breivik’s friends in the Australian Protectionist Party (APP). Just five short years after its foundation as a more ‘moderate’, less anti-Semitic version of the Australia First Party (AF), the APP has undergone its first major crisis, with the entirety of its Sydney branch decamping in order to establish yet another marginal bunch of kooks, this time modelled on Wilder’s Freedom Party (the APP modelled itself on the BNP). Whether or not the handful who spat the dummy can actually assemble another party remains to be seen, but given that they were the only active members the APP possessed the Protectionists seem doomed to disappear back into oblivion.

Or perhaps not.

Andrew Phillips, APP National Chairman, has relocated himself and his PO Box to Tasmania, while the party continues to nominate two others as contacts for NSW and VIC. Having lost perennial losers Darrin Hodges and Nicholas Hunter-Folkes, Phillips is now begging someone — anyone — to nominate themselves to undergo the humiliation of losing another popularity contest. Those interested can write to P.O. Box 170, Dover, Tasmania 7117 (which also functions as the postal address of Meals On Wheels in that part of the world).

*According to Q, “Details will be advised to paid-up patrons 48 hours prior to event. Expect a function centre within easy reach of the CBD. Photo ID is required to enter; only one small handbag per patron permitted into the venue.” Paul Sheehan writes for the defence here and you can read more about the Q Society on their webshite.

(More) Bloody Foreigners Making Trouble

Overseas: Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (aka ‘Tommy Robinson’ aka ‘Paul Harris’), the leader of the E E EDL, has been sentenced to 10 months jail for ‘possession of a false identity document with improper intention’, viz entering the US to attend an anti-Muslim gathering using a false passport. (Tommy’s troubles mirror those of Martin Brennan, another whinging Pom and the former leader of the A A ADL, forcibly expelled from Australia in August 2011 for immigration offences.) Also in attendance at the gathering in New York in September last year was Yanqui crackpot Robert Spencer. Spencer is described as ‘VP Islamic Scripture and History’ for the Q Society and runs a loon website called jihadwatch; the Coordinator for Victoria/Tasmania and Secretary of the Society is Ralf Schumann; Andrew McDonald is their Administrator in NSW while in Perth Debbie Robinson coordinates teh stoopid. Anyway, here’s a picture of the patriotic sheila from Perf (Debbie Robinson) and two foreign loons (Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer) holding the Strayan flag at SION:

When White nationalists attack! New Right @ Gaza solidarity rally, Sydney, November 24

slackbastard

Hundreds of protesters join a pro-Palestine rally at Town Hall in Sydney, Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012. The rally marched from Town Hall to Martin Place outside the US consulate.

———————————————————————————————————-

Posted on December 7, 2012 by @ndy

RRTAA!

Two weeks ago in Sydney, a small group of White-nationalists-in-anarchist-drag rocked up to a rally against the latest Israeli attack on Gaza (aka ‘Operation Pillar of Defense’, November 17). Armed with banners, Anonymous masks and bizarro political merch (branded tees and the like), the 10 or so wingnuts were soon identified as hostile by members of the crowd, who proceeded to isolate them outside the Town Hall. Reportedly, an attempt was made to confiscate one of their banners, which was unsuccessful. The White nationalists were then surrounded by police, and remained silent and stationary at the Town Hall for the duration of the rally.

So, who were these wEiRd0eS?

Their propaganda proclaimed them to be ‘national anarchists’. While the term may seem oxymoronic, ‘national anarchism’ is in fact an ideological development on the far right, one whose immediate origins can be traced back to the late 1980s and early 1990s and attempts by racists and fascists to find a place for their activities among anarchists in England. The standard account of this fringe and its evolution during this period is ‘Co-opting the Counter Culture: Troy Southgate and the National Revolutionary Faction’, Graham D. Macklin, Patterns of Prejudice, Vol.39, No.3, September 2005.

Despite having some initial success (fooling a handful of leftists, including the recently-deceased Terry Liddle, into collaborating with them), Southgate and his followers found little real political purchase among radicals. Of course organising, from the mid-2000s, a talking-shop in London, calling it ‘New Right’, and inviting various extreme-right wing loons — including Holocaust-denialists and other mentalists — to talk shit to other wEiRd0eS doesn’t help any. In any event, Southgate & Co have sensibly turned to the online world for support and in this realm they’ve been reasonably successful, the milieu specialising in virtual political expressions, seemingly on the basis of Ein Volk, Ein Blog (my favourite being a Hitler-worshipping Afro-punk).

In Australia, the national anarchists (hereafter referred to as gnats) announced their existence back in 2007, when a group of around 20 or so right-wing loons of diverse origins — including Darrin Hodges, the (former) leader of the anti-Muslim ‘Australian Protectionist Party’ in NSW, and disgraced academic and White racialist Andrew Fraser — gathered at the APEC counter-protests, also in Sydney. (See : Anarchist statement on the New Right, October 21, 2007.) As in the more recent incident, at APEC the racist wankers were isolated and protected by a large number of police.

The principal exponent of ‘national anarchism’ in Australia is a Sydney-based small businessman named Welf Herfurth (above, with Adelaide-based Holocaust denialist Fredrick Töben, together holding an NPD flag belonging to German neo-Nazi Horst Mahler), who has been joined in the past by a handful of Victorians (including a young Creatard from Geelong named Scott Harrison), a student from Perth named Nicholas Cole, and more recently several boneheads. Thus for reasons best known to themselves, the members of the Australian franchise of the US-based neo-Nazi Volksfront gang cultivated close links with Herfurth & Co in Sydney. Following its formal dissolution in October (seemingly as a result of US pressure on the group in the wake of neo-Nazi skinhead Wade Michael Page’s murderous spree), it would seem reasonable to expect other boneheads to increase the level of their activity on behalf of the gnats/New Right. As it stands, it’s difficult to gauge the seriousness with which the gnats in Sydney intend to continue to provoke the left, but a source in Sydney’s Chinatown reckons a former VF member called Steev Levings [?] is keen, and Steev’s political loyalties find graphic expression on his body:


The recent Gaza intervention is one of just a handful of public manifestations by gnats, who for whatever reason seem to be concentrated in Sydney (as is the Australia First Party and Australian Protectionist Party), while Melbourne can boast of being the centre of B&H and Hammerskin activity and the tiny groupuscule Nationalist Alternative. Further afield, the gnats appear to have only been able to maintain a temporary presence on The Streets of San Francisco — in the shape of a bunch of BANANAs. A beat-down on BANANA leader Andrew White (‘Andrew Yeoman’) on May Day a coupla years ago — and his subsequent denouncement by ideologue Southgate as a psychopath and race traitor — put paid to White’s dream of a Bay Area purged of non-Whites, but not before the racist loser paid a visit to Australia to address AF’s annual conference the (2009) Sydney Forum (at which his kamerad Welf Herfurth performs as MC).

Otherwise, the gnats may be located within a wider attempt by the far right to re-articulate a form of racist nationalism, one which has taken on increasing significance, especially in Europe, over the last few decades. See, for example: Czech Republic : The Big Neo-Nazi Crib (antifa.cz) | Germany : German city battles elusive new-look neo-Nazis (Reuters) | Italy : CasaPound’s First Big Outing in Rome Was a Snooze-Fest, (Giuseppe Pisani, Vice).

Finally, as Durruti put it:

Fascism is not to be debated, it is to be smashed.

‘Our culture is better than the Muslim culture” … Nick Folkes of the Australian Protectionist Party. Photo: James Alcock

WHEN right-wing extremists gather for an end-of-year knees-up, it’s BYO food and bile. Or as the online invitation reads: ”Please bring some nibbles.”

The Australian Protectionist Party wants people to roll up for ”a few Xmas drinks and cheer” at the December meeting of the Ironbark Social Club, which bills itself as ”a friendly monthly get together where Conservatives, Nationalists, Constitutionalists, Anthropogenic climate change sceptics and Australians concerned about where this country is headed can discuss issues of concern in a PC-free environment”.

Such friendly gatherings have previously railed against ”terrorists in the guise of refugees”, ”illegal” asylum seekers and the ”great global warming swindle”. Sounds friendly as hell. The contact for interested party-goers is Nick Folkes, pictured, an industrial painter from Rozelle who has previously stood as a candidate for the far-right Protectionist Party, chasing the xenophobic vote with gusto. Folkes has preached that Leichhardt Council be declared a ”sharia-free zone” and that the council scrap grants to multicultural groups. ”Our culture is better than the Muslim culture, it is better than the African culture,” he said this year about migrants. ”At the end of the day, why did they come here? There must be something wrong with their culture.” Well something is wrong here, but we suspect the source is more likely to be found among the ”like-minded people” of the Ironbark Social Club.

Niqi and the 36 Votes

It was the night before the crucial ballot. The troops were rallied. You can see how Nick’s fans can barely contain their excitement.

Nicky's friends

The rallying cry must have worked! A couple of days after the close of polls with around 75% of the votes in Niqi’s ward counted he had powered up to an awesome 36 votes!

Meanwhile, deluded artist and fellow Burqa Kohlition segment Sergio Redegalli over in Marrickville managed 70 votes. Well, he was handing out free oranges.

Maybe he should have worn the burqa.

Islamophobe Nathan Smith, last seen leading the charge in the Wallsend area against the proposed Elermore Vale mosque, has magically appeared in Forbes, where he managed to scratch up 216 215 votes, obviously from country people who have no idea how shonky the APP is.

Pity they spotted the artfully disguised Woolies’ petrol docket…

Here’s Nafe’s thoughtful views on asylum seekers. Wouldn’t you think the people of Forbes would really need such a deep political thinker?

UPDATE

And we just found this in our archives. We are sure the people of Forbes will be impressed.

Sadly however it appears Nathan will not be taking a seat in the Forbes Town Hall any time soon, since he failed to reach quota.

Refugee Week: The Highs and the Lowly Lows

Refugees

Tens of thousands of Aussies marched through major cities around the country yesterday (23/6/12) in support of ending mandatory detention and welcoming those who’ve sought refuge in Australia.

From ‘Welcome To Australia‘s website:

At 1pm on June 23, the Saturday of Refugee Week, we’re inviting everyone who is a part of the Australian community to ‘Walk Together’ in recognition that although we’ve all arrived here via different pathways we share a common Australian journey. 

We’re Aboriginal Australians, we’re refugees, we’re skilled migrants, we’re long-term Australians, we’re international students, we’re asylum seekers… we’re people. It’s time to Walk Together into a future where diversity is celebrated, fear is replaced with welcome and where everyone belongs.
Workplaces, schools, community groups and even pockets of politicians held services, events and parties in recognition of World Refugee Week. Here are some of the photos:
But it wasn’t a week completely full of positives, no. The ‘party’ of perpetual political pants-downs, ‘The Australian Protectionist Party‘ had organised a counter-rally that would somehow negate the positive actions of the tens of thousands of Australians who believed in treating asylum seekers and refugees like real people. They called it the ‘Torpedo the Boats Rally‘.
You will note that this event was shaping up to be the most successful Australian Protectionist Party in the history of the ‘organisation’. To date, the hicks have only ever been able to conjure up around 8-10 supporters at each racist eyesore rally. They once got around 20 people, but that was because they called on the Southern Cross Soldiers and the Australian Defence League (two other similarly dysfunctional and unpopular groups of intellectually mild boys in men’s bodies) to boost their numbers. But perhaps Hodges always knew that the event would eventually turn out poorly, given the group’s history of failing miserably at attracting any form of support from any given demographic, and he put his hand up to declare that it would be his final ‘rally’.

Hodges actually showed a glimpse of intelligence as he declared “…defined madness as repeating the same actions and expecting a different result…”. However, he then went ahead and practically removed himself entirely from the APP and left Brievik appreciator and child-murder supporter Matt ‘Mutation’ in charge, much to Matt’s confusion.

The Facebook event page for the torpedo-solution inbreds was red-hot with fake profiles from both sides of the debate, many deciding that the best course of action in dealing with Australia’s migration issues would be to post private details about each other and call people pedophiles and rapists etc. But while the social networking site was getting a server-crashing workout, the rally itself was failing to gain any kind of foothold, as the APP failed time and time again to secure a protest permit from NSW police.

Hodges and Folkes were talking up the idea that the only reason police were refusing to let them publicly humiliate themselves was because ‘leftists’ were always violent at these kind of gatherings. Meanwhile, at the Facebook event page, there were calm rational comments being made from APP supporters.

And while Hodges was keen to paint his opposition as the kind who refused to answer questions and silence debate, he teamed up with bum-chum Nicholas Folkes and consistently went on a comment-deleting rampage, proving that the best way to win an argument was to make it appear as though the opposition didn’t want to talk.

Without wanting to speak for the APP, I can’t imagine they could feel any kind of pride for the kind of lowlife bottom-feeders they were attracting to their page. Sharlene Ashton even turned up to threaten people (including pregnant mothers) with lighting their houses on fire and setting her ‘roids-raged husband onto them.

The debate was reaching an intellectual low-point wherever you looked – Rosina Mason-Parker was unfortunately one of the more intelligent APP supporters commenting.

Mid-way through the lead-up to the APP’s rally, another asylum seeker boat crashed, killing many people including women and children. Did you expect compassion from the scum? I certainly hope not. Here’s stand-up comedian and pants-wetter Trilby Steinberger‘s take on it:

Bigotry and hatred coupled with inappropriate apostrophes. It set off celebratory parties within the Protectionist Party’s corner however.

Even Folkesy weighed into the conversation, intimating that God had stepped in to kill the asylum seekers, and suggesting that in the future he would also sort out the ‘Marxist scum’.

Of course, the Bible-basher couldn’t avoid pushing his thoughts on slavery.

Anyways, I bet you’re itching to actually find out how the APP rally went. I hear you say, “I’m finally interested. This well respected, well received political party is now attracting numbers of over 130 at their planned rallies.” Well here are a few pics for you. Sorry to say, Nicholas Folkes and Darrin Hodges only managed to attract FOUR supporters and the pathetic non-event racist Italian Sergio Redegalli (the guy who dresses up and hides in women’s bathrooms).

Here’s Sergio with a nearly-dead, lonely fogey APP supporter filming the five other lousy APP dead-shits standing alone in a park next to Central Station in Sydney, waving an Australian flag and holding up signs saying ‘Join the Aussie Resistance’.

And here are Folkes and Hodges, flanked by random nobody and Old Guy. They took great delight in telling their opposition (Wallabies jumper and blue cap) that they were feral, unwashed S-bend scum, yet both Folkes and Hodges had turned up to their fap-rally after bathing in each others’ sweat, regrettably failing to shave their filthy unkempt attempts at facial hair and wearing the unwashed shirts they wear to all of their fail-events.

Here’s a photo of all six proud Australians who support the torpedoing of boats lined with women and children. You will note the blimpy woman on the right wearing a scarf and sunglasses – we have photos of her at previous events, including ‘ban-the-burqa’ rallies outside Redegalli’s house in Newtown. The irony hurts.

With another failed event chalked up; a miserable sayonara for fomer sex-shop assistant Hodges, they parted ways and headed for the pub. We look forward to the write-up on their website, describing the hundreds of attendees. It’s important to find humour in all situations.

And finally, a quick wrap from one of our other administrators:

“Went to the Welcome to Australia rally yesterday. It was really positive. They had performances and speakers.  I’d say 99.9% of attendees had absolutely no idea the APP were down the other end of the park… you could barely see them, and couldn’t read their signs or anything, plus they were standing between/behind some big trees.  There were about 3 police standing behind the pro-refugee group, mostly just chatting and one helped a little girl put some rubbish in the bin because she was too small.

At the other end of the park was the APP group.  There were 6 or 7 of them standing as part of their ‘rally’, and Sergio Redegalli was away from them with a video camera on a tripod.  They were faced (a distance away, probably set by police) by about a dozen Antifa who held banners saying ‘Torpedo the First Fleet’ and ‘No Borders’, in response to the APP calling their rally ‘Torpedo the Boats’.  The Antifa chanted to the APP that they were racist scum, to stop deportation, and that Australia was and is Aboriginal land.

Nicky Folkes responded by calling out to say they were “S-bend socialists”, “feral stench”, “bog stench”, etc. He ranted about them supporting murder and being racist. The force is obviously not strong with this one. Darrin Hodges mostly stood beside him, sniggering and looking adoringly at him.  Occasionally he repeated something Nicky had said, or chanted something himself, quietly at first while looking at Nicky for approval and then got louder if Nicky laughed, or stopped awkwardly if Nicky didn’t respond.

At one point, Nick called out “How are you going to torpedo the First Fleet? Are you going to go back in time?” and Darrin looked like he was so in love he was almost salivating. Darrin did some Beavis and Butthead style guffaws. Nicky spent a lot of time waving a big Australian flag around, not seeming to quite understand that it didn’t make a statement to anyone, because aside from the odd tourist or international student passing, everyone in that park was pretty much Australian.

There was one woman with them who had a beanie, scarf, sunglasses, long sleeved jumper and long skirt. Any time her scarf started to slip down from covering her face, she pulled it back up.  She tried to turn away from photos a lot. I guess she didn’t realise that the people she was standing with opposed burqas in public. I was scared that she may have been hiding a bomb. That’s what people who cover themselves are doing it for, right?

There was another guy in a cap and glasses who got really worked up if anyone went over to question him or talk to him.  He yelled at one girl and she walked away, I’m not sure what about though.

They attracted a few jeers from random people passing through the park.  There were about 10-15 police babysitting them.

Sergio was filming the Antifa for the most part, although if he was recording with sound, a lot of the video would have included him chatting shite to people.  Old Guy was at the rally and he went over to talk to Sergio for a while, and then there was a group chatting to him and one young woman was talking to him for a while.  I wasn’t close enough to hear but the few times I walked close enough behind him I heard him giving the spiel about how someone he knew was attacked by a Muslim or something, in his normal “I’m an intellectual and I don’t hate Muslims except when I do” type fashion. He ended up being interrupted by Nicky calling out to him to say to come over and take a group shot of their rally before they left to go and get a beer.  Sergio went over and introduced the girl to the fuckwits and then the 5 of them in t-shirts posed for the photo… the guy in the cap and glasses didn’t get in the pic, and neither did the woman with the full face covering, who stood beside Sergio, despite him being against that sort of thing.

They then toddled off towards Surry Hills.”
