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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Just when we thought homophobia was receding back into the murky swamp of hate…
Could any of the ople (sic) i have on facebook , friends or not tht r gay please delete me now… before i start going on a gay hunting spree to massacre u lunatics like the naciz (sic) did to the Jews in ww2.! Gays, Lezboz, Rapists, pedofiles, cunts tht abuse children or woman etc…. if i had a present to give you it would b by doing u a faovur (sic) and in the worst way takind (sic) ur life away.
And here’s Nenad.
We were alerted to this individual by someone who sent us a link from this blog.
Blogger Bruce says:
What do you say to a guy on Facebook who says this…
…apart from showing him how to spell check? Best you could do is give him a bucket to vomit in. Others thought it was a good idea to give him some education.
It’s good to see this type of homophobic rant being met head on by others. Just look at some of the responses:
(Now this story has sort of a happy ending because not all Nenad’s friends are as homophobic and downright immature as he is. Here are some of the comments as collected by Bruce.)
Being gay isn’t a disease lol
I dont get why it matters so much to you, they’re living their life and you’re living yours, everybody’s happy.
Nennad but were not in Europe were in a free democratic country. I pray you get some humanity soon. xxx
Just wondering, if australia was to ban gays, where does it stop? What’s to stop the govt from saying “I dont like the way that asian guy looked at me, all asians are to be deported out of the country or face death”. Hatred begets more hatred, once it starts there is no stopping it.
Making comments like that (the guy above) is just inappropriate and completely unnecessary. I don’t even know how u can call yourself a christian and make such stupid statements
You posted hate about a group of people. You said gays are pedophiles which shows you are largely uneducated, misguided and mislead in any actual truths and facts about homosexuality. Homosexuality is not a choice, not a disease, and there is nothing wrong with homosexuality. If you care so much and are disgusted (or discusted as you posted) then you are the one that has the disease, the problem, intolerance and are contributing to the hatred in the world. Gays, lesbians, bisexuals etc are normal people like straight people who happen to like the same sex and/or both sexes if bisexual. Its not hard to become educated and informed on that. Homophobia is the only disease and unfortunately refusing to see nothing is wrong with gay and lesbians makes you the ass hole. I spit on your entire existance.
It wasn’t long before he took down the post, or perhaps enough reports were made to Facebook and they took it down. I’ve since heard reports that the Federal Police have been informed. And rightly so. As if it wasn’t bad enough to vilify a whole gaggle of gays, but then to threaten to go on a ‘gay hunting spree to massacre’ is really quite revolting and a serious threat from a young man who may well be capable of carrying out such threats.
For those who ask why do we need marriage equality in Australia. Here is why. Because some of those born in 1991 still think that there is something not normal about sections of our community.
Congratulations to all who had a chance to deliver this guy some feedback.
And congratulations to Bruce Llama and to Nenad’s friends who managed to shake some sense into him.

Tuesday, 13 December 2011
Last Monday, my brother Andrew Bolt published a column presenting his views in opposition to same-sex marriage. I belatedly attempted to post a contribution to the lively blog debate. When it wasn’t published, I knew I didn’t want to leave it there — being a lesbian in a committed relationship I want to participate in the conversation happening across the country, tell my story and, in doing so, hopefully make even the smallest difference to the long-running campaign for marriage equality.
As my family will recall, I came out when I was 21 years old. Like many in the GLBTI community, I was awash with the relief and joy of recognising and expressing such a fundamental part of who I was. Again, like many, I experienced much uncertainty about my value to the community and the fear of rejection.
For the most part though, I feel fortunate to have received respect and love from people important to me as I made those first tentative steps out of the closet. That, of course, is not everyone’s experience. Rejection by parents, siblings and peer groups is not altogether uncommon and low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and suicide can be the terrible result.
Even with my good fortune, I have felt the effects of ignorance, fear and hate by others: fearing for my life, I was chased down city streets one night by a group of drunk teenagers for holding hands with my girlfriend; I have been verbally abused and taunted about my sexuality when playing sport; and I have felt on social and work occasions the discomfort or disapproval of others upon hearing the word “girlfriend” or “she” in relation to my partner.
Some gays and lesbians view their relationships as equal to those of straight people. But I know of others who would admit to feeling “lesser” or, even if they don’t, are fed up with receiving negative physical, verbal or other signals from the world around them.
Offering civil unions seems a reasonable compromise from the position of any straight person who has not ever had to question for a single moment others’ acceptance of their relationship or their right to choose to marry the person they love. Offering civil unions sends a signal that, to me, says I am lesser.
I’m then told that civil unions are in a legal sense similar to marriage and, therefore, why should it not be embraced by same-sex couples? If it’s such a palatable alternative it’s then fair to ask why it’s not embraced by many more heterosexual couples?
To point out the blindingly obvious, many of us regardless of sexuality want to get married; we want the ceremony that is such a significant marker in life’s journey. There may be little that legally separates the two, but socially and culturally there’s a chasm.
Marriage is touted as one of our most enduring traditions. Traditions are organic; their foundations are laid in the past but they grow and evolve over time. Granting me and my partner the right to marry — to have our loving and committed relationship recognised in law and by the community — doesn’t erode that tradition; it builds upon it.
My partner and I celebrate two anniversaries. We first held a “commitment ceremony” at home witnessed by many of our family and friends on a stormy Adelaide spring day. It was the day I told the world I would love my partner forever. It was the best day of my life.
However, it wasn’t until we married in the simplest of ceremonies one month later in Canada that I sensed a legitimacy and belonging I wasn’t expecting to feel. I think that’s because I have built a layer of protection against judgement and negativity for many years around my sexuality, my relationship and, now, my young son.
It may seem naive, but having that certificate in my hand made me untouchable, secure, normal, and for those wonderful few weeks, I could drop the shield. It’s disappointing beyond measure that my brother and others who share his views don’t wish that for me and everyone else like me.
I want marriage equality. At the very least, I wish for a rational and respectful debate.
I trust that more thoughtful consideration of this issue will prevail and, whether under this government or another in the future, my wife and I will finally see our relationship legitimised.
