“No wonder so many people think we are all stupid, bigotted racist red necks!” (sic)

Anyone who has come across a gathering of bogots on the internet has experienced the depths of Bogotariat indignation when someone suggests that their anti-Muslim rants might be an indication of, well, very poorly veiled racism.

Mostly because they are.

Very occasionally – very, very occasionally – a tiny spark goes off in the bogot brain and looks like it might actually fire up the engine room for some critical thought.

In one such instance, one enterprising boguette has decided to open a new anti-halal group where she, as the group admin, intends to weed any racist comments out of the discussion so that the message will be taken seriously.  Particularly by friends and family who, thus far, may have her pegged as being racist.

And maybe, just maybe, this is the start of some kind of revelation or epiphany?.  Maybe there is hope that some of the bogot elements might finally be realising that racism is ugly and unacceptable?  That it is a sentiment and a thought process that they need to reject?

Maybe, just maybe, they’re getting somewhere?

Sigh.

 

It seems not.  They still want to be racist, they just think they can hide it by not being explicit about it, and no one will notice.

Yeah.  Right.

Nevertheless, the very notion appears to just wind one of the other boguettes up like too many cans of Monster before a big night out at Penrith Panthers (if you haven’t heard of it, it’s a world of entertainment).

Indeed.

Hahahahahahaha.

Sorry, didn’t meant to interrupt.  Let me just take a few steps back and let them sort it out like… adults?

No wonder!

And so it was.  (Removed.)

The Bogotariat just aren’t ready for crazy new ideas like trying to better hide their racism so they can pretend to be arguing from a rational perspective.

It’s just TOO MUCH TO ASK, GUYS.  OKAY?

“End of Story”!

Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this sun of York;

So. Three years on. Tony Abbott has singlehandedly changed the mood of this nation. Where once we thought us a fair and compassionate nation, Abbott has turned it seems 58% of the nation into thinking that refugees are illegal. To highlight this further, the coalition recently announced some totally bullshit announcement designed to please their current support base, the small but loud and bitter number of xenophobes that you find in any nation.

Not once has the media ever really tried to question Abbott’s policy. Oh they may have quietly mentioned the view of Indonesia, but it was always presented in a way that that somehow is not an issue and after all Howard did it in the before times.

It was in this environment, this bitter watchlist making environment, talk back hating environment, media…

Breaking News: Young Anti-racist V Scumfront Monsters

“What made me want to make this video was a facebook status that was posted by an Australian girl, I was linked to it by a friend. This video features my pov and opinions on this issue. I believe that if there is more of a diverse representation of people in Australia in the media, racist opinions like that would reduce (not saying racism will go away completely), because we fear what/ who we do not know or understand.

I was tempted to link you all to the facebook status but I do not wish to cause this girl any emotional harm/ bullying. But I do hope that one day she/ and other like her change their stance and embrace our diverse nation.”

– Kimberley S

——————————————————————————

Some time back, Australians against Racism and Discrimination, a Facebook anti-discrimination group, had the pleasure of featuring a video made by a young Chinese-Australian woman, Kimberley S.

The video was a response to the SBS three-part series Go Back to Where You Came From, and reinforces some of the points made in that series about the small number of refugees and asylum seekers taken by Australia compared to the numbers taken by other countries.

Soon after posting the video on YouTube, Kimberley started getting the predictable nauseous responses from the usual neo-Nazi white supremacist racist “patriotic” Strayans and other international lowlife with the usual insults which we won’t bore or distress Kimberley or other readers with.

Kimberley followed this video with another one, a response to a girl’s Facebook status.

In this video, Kimberley related the story of her own background and recorded her observations on racism in Australia from her perspective. She includes comments from well-known xenophobes and ends with a reminder that Australia is a multicultural nation, yet our media, particularly our commercial media, do not reflect this.

WARNING: DARRIN HODGES ALERT!

At this stage Kimberley had been forced to disable comments on her two videos and since the anonymous race warriors had not only seen fit to question her origins but had also distorted what she had presented:

She wrote:

Due to overwhelming racist, “white power” comments, I have made the comments approval only. I made a video response to the these comments specifically however one of the users edited the video to slander me – when I was quoting them (making it sound like it was my words via editing). Luckily it was taken down and in return I took my response video down in case it happened again
P.s Before you comment on my heritage when you know nothing about it. I am not from China. Only one of my parents are from China. My dad is actually from PNG my grand dad fought for Australia in the 2nd World War (yes, he was Asian) and when my dad was born, PNG was “owned” by Australia at the time. It wasn’t till I think after I was born in QLD (my parents already settled in what we called Australia, now) PNG got its independence back. I am not less Australian than you are. Migration has been going on for centuries so before messaging me and send me racist comments about “where I come from” or talking about my parents like you know them – I think you should stop and consider this.

Now it becomes truly bizarre, because Kimberley’s video has apparently somehow made its way over to foetid US-based neo-Nazi site Stormfront, known to us here as Scumfront (link not provided, we don’t want to encourage them). And its resident population of tiresome knuckle-dragging trog failures has risen briefly from their torpor to “critique” these videos in their own all-too-familiar fashion.

In the words of one of our members

Stormfront was established by a convicted terrorist, Don Black. It’s full of cry-babies who need to HTFU.

Under the laughably inaccurate heading “Asian attacking white australia!”, Scummy’s own intellectual pygmies exhaust their limited vocabularies and the resources of Spellcheck in an effort to…well we are not sure what. There are millions of videos on YouTube, hundreds of videos dealing with racism and anti-racism. Many of these videos name and shame. Many are right in their ugly faces.

Maybe they should listen to their last commenter “Power and Pride” (sic) when he says:

Seriously, this is a bit petty, some random chick on YouTube droaning (sic) on….

We suppose it’s too good opportunity for the boneheads to miss, doing what they do best – trying to bully a young woman for not being “like them”. Misquoting and distorting the truth.

Slow news week neo-Nazi white supremacist racist “patriots” so let’s pick on Asian women.
