Another Aussie company bullied by bigots

It seems like the new sport of choice for the couch potatoes at #TeamStraya is the bullying and intimidation of small Australian businesses who wish to cater for Muslim customers.

After all there aren’t too many suburban trains or trams in the yobbo rural heartland where they can threaten, bully and satisfy their yearnings to parade their hate.

Maybe this will become a new sports rivalry for teams of sweaty bigots like City V Country NRL or some sort of State of Origin. (*apologies to the NRL)

As reported by the ABC:

$50 000 for a small business is a serious setback and will probably result in local  job losses and a cutback to working hours. It will also impact on local dairy farmers.

But of course the loathsome traitorous rabble will not see this in their senseless idiocy and hate.

Here’s the first one off the bench on the Fleurieu Milk Company Compass Cup community page

Pete manages to have a go at yet another Aussie Company.So we expect he will offer a job to anyone displaced by his bigotry. Not!

And we hope Spring Gully’s lawyers are paying attention.

Here’s some more phobes crawling out of the woodwork

Danny Bell is a proud member of hate group Patriots Defence League – you know the far right extremist group  which enjoys threatening and intimidating Muslims?

He is also a member of some Seventh Day Adventist groups. You know, the church that owns the lucrative Aussie Sanitarium food company which caters for the vegetarian dietary requirements of its church members – just like halal and kosher ?

Maybe Danny will want to run a crusade against Weet-Bix.

 

Favourite breakfast or terrorism threat?

Oh look, just about the whole Sanitarium range is halal.

Never mind,Danny, one of your fellow Muslim haters featured below lives in Newcastle and can march to nearby Cooranbong and stare down the San factory.TABFleurieu5

Karen wants to let us know that she alone can define what “the Aussie way” is – obviously in her universe it is the one that says it is OK to bully a small business providing jobs and an income to people in economically depressed regional South Australia.

Way to go #TeamStupid!

Yep and General Evi Davis is all locked and loaded up with Wild Turkey ready to take on the evil Muslamic halals. She even belongs to a page that tells us it is against the halal religion.

And if that is not enough,  adding to the (vomit) bucket list, spreading his shit on the page is Islamophobe Mike.

Did Aboriginals Deserve an Apology? – “This is not a racist page”

apology3

aboriginal1

Kevin Rudd apologised as Prime Minister at the time on behalf of the government and people of Australia. Whether he was around during the period of the Stolen Generations or not is irrelevant.

apology2

Indigenous reactions to the Apology were positive. Indigenous people were not concerned whether Rudd had been “around” or not,  just that he was there as Prime Minister representing the government and the nation.

apology

Oh and we know of no Indigenous people, alive or dead, who were or are “grateful” for being snatched away from their families. The anonymous admin of that page must live in another universe!

“He makes white Australians feel uncomfortable”

GOOD!

The Stupidity Award for Facebook Racism has to go to Jarrod Schaub

aboriginal4

WRONG you cretin. Indigenous people have lived here for more than 40 000 years.

And guess what fuckwit!  The Chinese had an empire and an advanced civilisation for thousands of years and invented many things we still use but had no glass.

Why?

BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T NEED IT!

And they were even kind enough to invent the foldable umbrella for Jarrod’s European ancestors who obviously couldn’t manage it themselves.

jarrodschaub

And it gets better – or worse.

Jarrod is not the end of the dregs there. Take a look at “Mark Whiteman” who likes to grab the profile pics of people who dare to disagree with him and misuse them.

Sound familiar?

It’s something that goes with far right nutzi politics because when they get out in the real world they find their political nutjobbery has nothing to offer.

It is much easier for them to bully and intimidate young Aboriginal women for instance.

markwhitemanfacebook

We are fairly sure that the real owner of that picture, State of Michigan political analyst Marlon Brown, who is an African-American albino, would not be too impressed by knowing that a white supremacist was misusing his photograph.

We know where to contact Marlon and we’ll be letting him know.

Joining “Mark” for some tag team bullying action is Chris Smith.

Yeah we know that Chris. You have quite a track record.

Chris Smith 1

This might have been at the Sandringham Hotel in Newtown where him and his motley crew like to hang out despite all the gay leftie greenies who are thick on the ground in that part of Sydney.

Chris has been in the neo-Nazi scene for a long time with a bunch of fellow fantasists called Volksfront.  That is, when he’s not fronting the beak at Penrith Court.

So is Did Aboriginals Deserve an Apology? a racist page?

Oh yes indeed!

Law and Order: Not-so-special-victims

Facebook fails the tolerance test

According to the film, The Social Network, Mark Zuckerberg conceived and founded Facebook largely as a result of being rejected by his girlfriend at the time.

So perhaps we must ask ourselves whether Facebook is merely a gigantic pervasive adolescent frat-boy fantasy theme park based on the need for acceptance and the need for the socially anxious to hang with the cool people and become awesome (and score women of course)

Adolescents are in the process of becoming adults. As part of that process they exhibit a number of characteristics, many of which are irritating to the real adults in their lives.

  • unrealistic expectations
  • pre-occupation with self – everyone is like me
  • preoccupation with image
  • overwhelming desire for acceptance
  • black and white thinking
  • impulsivity

However in the real world, in order to survive, adolescents need to grow up.

Unrealistic expectations

We are told that Facebook has a physical workforce at its US headquarters of around 4000 people. This is supposed to ensure the smooth running of an organisation which has a customer base estimated at one billion

Ingham’s Chickens Victorian factory employs about 3000.

Except Facebook deals with all the complexities and pitfalls of human interactions online.

Inghams deals with dead chickens.

Facebook deals with customer complaints, privacy concerns, online security and hate speech (?)

In a lame attempt to stretch its Californian workforce more thinly, Facebook has outsourced much of its moderation and response to reports to an offshore entity called oDesk Part of this process is the running of bots which supposedly identify offensive content and sends alleged offenders automated messages.

oDesk moderator on the job

Some four billion pieces of content are shared every day by 845 million users. And while most are harmless, it has recently come to light that the site is brimming with paedophilia, pornography, racism and violence – all moderated by outsourced, poorly vetted workers in third world countries paid just $1 an hour. (Daily Telegraph UK)

However this kind of “moderation” is full of pitfalls and is open to abuse as pointed out by activist Segway Jeremy Ryan who got his account compromised while campaigning against the Governor of Wisconsin’s planned budget cuts.

Trolls are now having activists removed by filing fake Facebook complaints. That is right, people are suppressing information in Wisconsin by actively reporting people they deem to be a threat on Facebook. I myself have been reported and banned for one to three days for simply posting “Good job” or “The majority of Wisconsin doesn’t like Scott Walker.” People have been reported on pages for saying nothing more than my name and have been reprimanded by Facebook. The strategy is simple and Facebook lets it continue. If someone reports something as abusive to Facebook they don’t actually look at it, they just remove it and warn the person who posted it. If you get enough you are not able to dispute them at all, and with no admin contacts and no one at Facebook actually looking at the posts reported as “abusive,” the person gets blocked.

Pre-occupation with self – everyone is like me

Mark Zuckerberg, it is said, wants the world to be an open place where everyone is transparent (except for the Facebook business model but that’s another story) So much so it seems that Facebook managed to upset no less a person than acclaimed Nobel Prize-winning British author Salman Rushdie.

Pre-occupation with image

Well at least where women’s breasts are concerned – specifically the breasts of nursing mothers.

So while racists, bigoted, anti-woman Facebook hate sites abound, if you dare show a picture of a happy nursing mum and her baby you are likely to get a bot warning from oDesk.

Or as one wit put it “Jew-haters are welcome on Facebook as long as they are not lactating”.

Your warning would look like this:

And if you are really really lucky you might get one of these, complete with either space tags or misplaced end tags, just to underline and emphasise its innate stupidity.

The Gold Medal for Facebook Stupidity is an e mail like this one below. And again note the tags.

The item in question was actually this. We remember it well, it was posted at TAB Facebook page and mass reported despite being neither obscene nor featuring real people.

Then again the racists didn’t like it…

Apparently Zuckerberg and the kiddies came up with this  “solution” for the problem of undesirable content on Facebook.

socialresolution1

Well hey we could really see how that one would work…

socialresolution2

Err Mark, which planet are you on again?

socialresolution3

Sorry Mark, from our point of view most anti-discrimination activists are way past the age of having teachers and some of us don’t even have parents. It might work if our “trusted friend” was this err…person.

The “trusted friend” we’d like to have

Desire for acceptance

Facebook goes out of its way to be accepted as THE universal social network platform. Its whole business bottom line is based on that premise. The more fools click on the ads and sign up for the data miners, the more money Facebook makes.

In doing so it hosts a variety of fringe wackos who’d be hard pressed writing their own names in the real world.

On Facebook, you do not need the rudimentary web skills you require to run a message board for instance. So that’s why racists, bigots and other semi-literate hate mongers have flocked there in droves rather than gathering at other longer-established hate sites like Scumfront or Winds of Jihad, where they can mix exclusively with others of their kind.

And this is why.

Not only does Facebook give them a laughably easy platform to use, it also lets them share a space with the mainstream. It is rather analogous to the local crack dealer setting up a store on the village green, rather than hiding away in a dark alley.

Hello kiddies. Welcome to Freakbook. We want you to make us very happy…(League of Gentlemen)

So when the kids get onto Facebook to interact with their real-life friends, there’s a whole bunch of Fuck Off We’re Full-type sites just waiting to groom them and entice them in. Something which did not escape this critic from an atheist site.

As far as Facebook pages and groups go, we use the living-room test at TAB for sites. Would you allow the people on site XYZ into your living room? If the answer is NO then we shouldn’t have to endure their intrusion into our space. In real life we do not choose to, nor do we have to associate with, racists, bigots and the like. And we can ensure our kids are kept away from haters.

Of course Zuckerberg apologises. In fact he does so often. Perhaps a little too often for someone who is trying to float a public company. Maybe that’s why savvy share buyers have stayed away in droves – that and everything else we have outlined.

In fact Better Business Bureau gave Facebook an “F” rating with the following comment

Our opinion of what this rating means:
We strongly question the company’s reliability for reasons such as that they have failed to respond to complaints, their advertising is grossly misleading, they are not in compliance with the law’s licensing or registration requirements, their complaints contain especially serious allegations, or the company’s industry is known for its fraudulent business practices.

Impulsivity

One day Zuckerberg must have awoken with a brilliant thought bubble. Why not allow users themselves to police the Facebook site? That way he wouldn’t be forking out hundreds of thousands to pay a bunch of nerds to moderate content.

This sounds nice and cosy at first, not to mention cheap as chips, until you take a look at the calibre of some of the Facebook users. You don’t have to go very far to do that.

Just check out the names on our very own tag cloud.

From Wikipedia:

Enabling of Harassment

Facebook instituted a policy by which it is now self-policed by the community of Facebook users. Some users have complained that this policy allows Facebook to empower abusive users to harass them by allowing them to submit reports on even benign comments and photos as being “offensive” or “in violation of Facebook Rights and Responsibilities” and that enough of these reports result in the user who is being harassed in this way getting their account blocked for a predetermined number of days or weeks, or even deactivated entirely…In addition, Facebook does not ban the IPs of users who have proven to create multiple accounts for the purposes of trolling or stalking others, thereby enabling the harasser, even if they do have one of the offending accounts deactivated, to simply create another one and continue the harassment with no lasting consequences

Take a look at what happened recently to one of our sister sites, a group which exposes racism directed at Indigenous Australians.

complaintagainstracists

So the ABC’s 7:30 programme recently decided to check out these claims.

And it gets better. After being criticised by our own AFP’s cyber crime unit Facebook responded thus:

Facebook is a service devoted to helping people share and making the world more open and connected.

As such, we often must balance the need for freedom of expression and the even greater need of preventing any harm to the people who use our service.

To achieve this balance, when we write our policies, we must exclude offensiveness when determining which pages are harmful.

So it seems thanks to Facebook we now have a new definition of “offensiveness”. “Offensiveness” according to Facebook are violations of areas which most of the civilised world has long decided are no-go areas.

Facebook regards the following as mere “offensiveness” it seems – racism, religious bigotry, particularly directed at Muslims and Jews ( including Holocaust denial and Protocol-style vilifying myths about Muslims),  but also at Indigenous Australians, misogyny, homophobia, bullying, intimidation, defamation, identity theft and the propagation of violent political ideologies such as neo-Nazism.

And speaking of names, this is what Facebook’s apologist Simon Axten thinks of activists who wish to conceal their identities.

And when asked to respond to a request for assistance from no less an agency than the WA Human Rights Commission, this was his glib reply.

facebooksimonaxten1a

In Australia for anti-racists and other social justice activists, having to reveal your identity can mean harassment, intimidation and violence from your enemies.In many other countries it can mean imprisonment, torture and death. But this obviously doesn’t bother Simon.

So let’s see if the new head of Facebook’s Australia-New Zealand operations can do a better job. Here’s his CV.

And his photo. Watch for him in the better Sydney eateries.

Here’s William Easton. No doubt the identity thieves at Facebook will be grabbing this.

Unlike what is demanded of Facebook members, William is a tad shy about revealing his contact details so that we can send our complaints to him. So we might help him out with a Facebook-style fatwa he can use. It’s a lot more honest than the one Facebook is using at the moment.

BONUS No tedious <br><br>

facebookmashup

Feel free to post it to your own profile, use it on your blogs and  annoy Facebook with it.

UPDATE

Facebook Australia has a page. However by the look of the randoms posting there we wouldn’t bother.

However William Easton has a Facebook page

No Svengali with this Trilby

Are you sitting comfortably?

At the beginning of last century there was a fashion for lurid Gothic novels usually featuring an innocent young girl ensnared by the hypnotic powers of a charismatic and diabolical mentor. The practice of hypnotism was in its infancy and the ability to apparently control minds was regarded with awe.

The most famous of these was George du Maurier’s Svengali. It was filmed several times, the most famous version being in 1931.

Early Trilby

Let us introduce Trilby Steinberger who seems to have managed to incorporate delusions and diabolical behaviour into her repertoire without the need for any assistance from a charismatic mesmerist. Unless of course you think it is Luke Jenkins.

The plot thickens

Trilby Steinberger

There’s Trilby at the local watering hole with friends. We have edited the friends out of the shot.

Now how do we know about this Trilby? Seems her Facebook friends are quite happy to let us know about her.

Trilby outed

We’ll let Trilby’s odd self-description pass for now. If she wants to characterise herself as a murderous purple Dalek then she can do so.

And Trilby’s good friend Daniel typically follows his heads-up with a gratuitous swipe at Indigenous people.

On yet another occasion a friend’s enthusiasm overcomes his(?) discretion. Trilby must be some woman.

Trilby outed again

And here’s another enthusiastic fan named Kevin Huggins. Great to see that such a consummate artist has such caring friends.

Trilby and Kevin

Here’s Trilby having an intimate tête-à-tête with Facebook bore and well-known Sydney businessman Allan Ellison “Jarrod Devan”.

Intimate moment with "Jarrod"

So now Trilby admits she is the artist formerly known to us as Batty Burqa. In fact so enchanted is she by this fake profile she is chatting to she forgets to delete the conversation – oh well.

We figure that “Paul” refers to Paul Toohey, lately outed by one of his own as a part of  “John Harris”. The arse end of the Centipede no doubt.

Confession time

But wait…what is going on here? Has Arse End disappointed Trills in some way? Has the whole Centipede slithered away?

Denial from Trilby

And the implication that she knows Sergio? – well Sergio loves meeting people for coffee and actually invited one of us, though we at TAB have better things to do – like watching Inglourious Basterds once again to remember how to really deal with Fascists.

"Jarrod" gets cosy with Trilby

Well that anti-Muslim page is one of her hate pages despite her constant denials that she is racist or bigoted. Such as this one.

Not racist but...

No doubt Trilby is keen to be seen by people as being normal. A normal bogot that is. And note the comment by oxygen thief Andy Watts.

Of course Trills manages to contradict herself elsewhere, but we are all getting used to that.

Don’t know which “moron” Trills is referring to since she seems to be surrounded by quite a collection of them.

Hypocrite

Though it is rather disturbing to realise that she sees green maggots overrunning her pages. With fake profiles of themselves too.

Maggots

Sorry to disappoint you Trills but maggots are white – so perhaps you need to clean up your 38 members? Get rid of the white maggots?

Now Trilby and friends get down to some serious stalking.

Stalker

Now we have never figured out why racists like “Julia Munnrow” would be interested in the personal details of anti-racists.

Are they going to report them to the law for being anti-racists?  Nooo

Are these people going to be publicly embarrassed by being named as anti-racists? Nooo

Are these people going to be shunned by the community for being anti-racists? No, far from it.

Will “Julia Munnrow” and her kind stalk and harass them? Most likely. In fact they have done so already.

Replete with the skills obtained in her TAFE Photoshopping Photography course, Trills is happy to prominently display her very own personal gallery. In this presentation of Trilby’s artistry we have edited out photos stolen from the profiles of people who have offended the bogot community by actually disagreeing with them.

Here’s Trills and her mates workshopping the collection

Trills workshop

Art conoisseur Jude Billman Milly Knight “Mardi Templar” gives Trills the benefit of her expertise gleaned from hanging around hate sites and making inane comments.

However Trills and her cronies are not exactly burdened with the weight of high ethical standards – the same old pics have been splashed enthusiastically around every conceivable hate group. This is just a sample.

Stupidity sample2

And while resting from her efforts to promote racism and bigotry she also manages to have a swipe at people who don’t like Tony Abbott – thus showing that criticism of politicians is not allowed in her strange little world despite the constant clamour of the bogots for “freedom of speech”.

And we do not think for a moment that Tony Abbott would welcome her as a supporter. Especially when she is accompanied by armchair Brownshirt Andrew Watts.

Stupidity sample

Meanwhile, back at Stalk Central, Aaron Cross of the Ryde area is getting very excited about the Antibogans being mentioned on the neo-Nazi site known to us here as Witless Towers.

At that stage Trills, as always showing her peerless artistic taste, had assumed the profile picture of the late shoe-throwing activist Peter (surname redacted) who has recently and tragically died of cancer.

Trilby and the Nazis

Aaron had decided to call the person he assumed was the “chief Antibogan” and by his own admission had continued to make nuisance calls to the person’s phone. Trills certainly keeps delightful company.

And Trill’s reaction? Apart from calling the victim a “fag”?

Advocates stalking

And speaking of ethics take a look at this

Trilby double standards

Posting people’s photos? What was that again about “double standards”? So it is OK in Trill’s dystopia to do one thing then to condemn others for allegedly doing the same?

There’s that obsessive sense of entitlement all these racist bigots have rearing its ugly head again.

Trilby double standards 2

One project obsessing this little band of bigots artists is the continual spamming of a video of someone they do not like. We are not sure what this is meant to achieve. There is no point in undertaking dumb childish revenge fantasies art works unless someone is interested in seeing them. I mean, does anyone want to watch endless repeats of TV shows which were not all that good the first time around?

Defamatory content

And now for the crowning artistic achievement. Covered in pirated photographs triumphantly displayed by Trills, Centipede and other members of their artists’ collective, with obvious and lovingly executed works from the great artist itself comes this exquisite piece.

Trilby is a member

Note Trilby’s enthusiastic embrace of this scurrilous and defamatory group.

And here is the most bizarre aspect of the lot.

As an additional titillation for her 38 white maggots, and obviously seeking to recruit more fans, Trills managed to create by her own admission a defamatory dating profile of the targeted male anti-racist as revenge for a defamatory dating profile created by a female acquaintance of hers in 2008 who is completely unrelated to any of the events outlined here.

Confused? Yes, we are too. A search of the DSM IV failed to find a particular psychiatric disorder which applied here.

Made by a psycho

But in case Trills is having second thoughts this has been reported to the police, to our entourage of public interest lawyers who work for us pro bono and the website owner has been informed of his obligations under the US Communications Decency Act (1996).
