It’s that time of year again where we look back and remember last year for what it was.
The annual Unshackler Awards is a series of 10 Awards to be released over coming days to remember the good and the bad as we break the chains of control.
Last year we saw an array of heroes striving to save Western civilisation and its virtues from the regressive left. Across Europe, North America and Australia, these men and women passionately promoted their ideals without fear of the violence characterising the left. We saw what they did, and what they achieved. They were laughed at by the left and the mainstream media, yet they broke the chains of control and shocked the world by their achievements.
Now it’s our time to celebrate our best ‘Unshacklers’ as nominated by The Unshackled team. Then you the public get to reduce it down to just one: The “2016 Unshackler of the Year Award” which will be announced on Australia Day.
And the nominees are:

Donald Trump has been very successful, whether it be as a real estate mogul, business man, hollywood personality, or politician. The Trump name is not only well known in New York, but on a global scale. Trump was successful in the 2016 United States Election, where he not only overcome 16 other quality candidates in the Republican Primaries, but also beat Hillary Clinton in the general election by a great margin. Trump was able to take states in the mid-west that had not turned red in decades. His appeal to the working class via his strong anti-immigration stance, anti political correctness, anti-globalisation, and pro freedom views has led to the rise of the alt-right movement, and in general a combination of conservative nationalist populism. He has been announced as Time Magazine’s “Person Of The Year”, and has achieved so much, considering he had the media and establishment against him. This is why Donald Trump has been nominated for “The Unshackler Of The Year Award.”
Nigel Farage is a British politician who led the UK Independence Party from 2006-2009, and again from 2010-2016. UKIP was founded in the early 90s, but rose to fame under Farage, when he was able to win them a large share of seats in the European Parliament, and achieved the 3rd highest vote in the 2015 general election. UKIP continued to gain in popularity as they campaigned strongly against immigration, globalisation, and the E.U. In June 2016 they were able to send a shock on a global scale, when the the U.K. voted to exit the European Union with 52% of the vote. Nigel Farage was the face behind the brexit movement, and was the first of the many populist leaders to succeed this year. This is why Nigel Farage has been nominated for “The Unshackler Of The Year Award.”
Pauline Hanson entered federal politics in 1996. She has been to Australia what Donald Trump is to the United States. Her maiden speech in 1996 symbolised her journey to unconditionally speak the truth during her time in Parliament despite a growing atmosphere of political correctness. Her ultimate goal was, and always remains, to ensure the preservation of Australia’s values and identity amidst a time of progressivism and a tyrannical enforcement of multiculturalism. Unfortunate events within the Liberal Party of Australia resulted in a suspension of her political activities. But in 2016, Pauline entered politics again, and re-embarked on a journey to not only represent the best interests of the nation and its people, but also bring back migration and it’s issues to the centre of attention by revealing its consequences. Her One Nation party secured four Senate seats, and didn’t fail to make headlines in sensationalised mainstream news stories. Pauline has been called a racist and bigot countless times by the left simply for speaking the truth about migration and it’s disastrous effects. Despite her opponents’ attempts to put her down, Pauline has continued to rise, especially due to the fact that her views on migration are aligned with reality. With her love for Australia’s culture and commitment to uploading its values and way of life, Pauline Hanson is a true patriot. This is why Pauline Hanson has been nominated for “The Unshackler Of The Year Award.”
Marine Le Pen is the figurehead of national-conservatism in France. The president of the national-conservative National Front party, Le Pen is deeply critical of the European Union due to its semi-imperialistic function. She has openly and bravely spoken against the EU and Angela Merkel a multiple times, criticising the immigration policies, protectionism, and mass surveillance of civilians enforced by the EU, along with the general corruption infesting the organisation. Marine Le Pen is a true figure of French patriotism, and rapidly growing in popularity, she strives towards restoring France’s sovereignty and greatness. This is why Marine Le Pen has been nominated for “The Unshackler Of The Year Award.”
Geert Wilders is the main figure standing up for patriotism and stronger borders in the Netherlands. He is the founder and leader of the Party for Freedom. Avidly critical of Islam, Wilders is a proponent of truth, exposing the reality of Islam and it’s true nature as a violent religion unfit for the Western world. This role has helped boost his popularity in the Netherlands. Geert Wilders has come under increasing attack simply for speaking the truth about Islam. Yet the fact that many polls show that he’s in the lead in the Netherlands is a reflection of the deep impact he’s having in the kingdom by bringing back national conservatism. This is why Geert Wilders has been nominated for “The Unshackler Of The Year Award.”
Vladimir Putin was a former KGB foreign intelligence officer, Prime Minister, and current President of the Russian Federation. He has been Time “Person of the Year”, and made it on Forbes “World’s Most Powerful Individual” list four times. Putin has promoted conservative policies in social, cultural, and political matters. Putin has attacked globalism and neo-liberalism, and instead advocated nationalism. He was successful in annexing Crimea, and made in roads to taking back land that belonged to the old Soviet Union. He has a tough guy image and that best characterises the ideal alpha male. This sends the left into a frenzy as they know with Putin they will not be getting a cuck, but instead a real man that will get stuff done. This is why Vladimir Putin has been nominated for “The Unshackler Of The Year Award.”
Rodrigo Duterte was a former lawyer, mayor, and is now the President of the Philippines. Duterte’s political success has been aided by his vocal support for the extrajudicial killing of drug users and criminals. Duterte has said he personally killed three rapist-kidnappers while he was Davao Mayor in 1988. On May 9, 2016, Duterte won the Philippine presidential election with 38.5% of the votes. Duterte threatened to withdraw the Philippines from the U.N. and pursue an independent foreign policy. Duterte was labelled “The Punisher” by Time Magazine, as it has been alleged that he is linked to over 1400 extrajudicial killings. Duterte in response to this said “If you are doing an illegal activity in my city, if you are a criminal or part of a syndicate that preys on the innocent people of the city, for as long as I am the mayor, you are a legitimate target of assassination.” The man that could claim that he is trying to make the philippines great again, is all the more reason why he is nominated for “The Unshackler Of The Year Award.”
Beppe Grillo is an Italian comedian, actor, blogger, political activist, and leader of the Five Star Movement political party. In 2005 he called for thhe resignation of the Bank of Italy’s then governor over banking scandals. Time Magazine chose him as one of the “European Heroes 2005” for targeting corruption and financial scandals. In 2010 he started the Movimento 5 Stelle (Five Star Movement) to promote through the internet his iseals and honesty and direct democracy. In 2012 the party began to make gains in the local elections, and in the 2013 general election ended up with 25.5% of the votes. Grillo announced in 2014 his efforts in trying to get a referendum on Italy’s membership of the Eurozone. In 2016 he was behind the campaign to not have refrorm in the senate. 60% of the people voted no, which resulted in the Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in resigning. This was seen as a damaging blow to the E.U. with further populists gaining more control. This is why Beppe Grillo has been nominated for “The Unshackler Of The Year Award.”
Beata Szydło is the current Prime Minister of Poland, and vice-chairman of the right-wing national-conservative Law and Justice Party. A eurosceptic leader of a eurosceptic party, Szydło has been pushing a strong borders stance that has protected Poland from the disastrous effects of migration experienced in other European countries. Wise enough to know the truth about open borders, and grave enough to reveal that truth, Szydło has been integral in keeping Poland and its culture safe from outside forces, especially Islamic migration. She has also pursued the banning of abortion and is a hero to the conservative cause. This is why Beata Szydło has been nominated for “The Unshackler Of The Year Award.”
Heinz-Christian Strache represents the fight for freedom in Austria, and has been the Chairman of the country’s Freedom Party. Strache was the figure critical of Islamic migration from an Austrian context, however lost the most recent election to a left-wing party. Just like all other national conservative politicians of the Western world, Strache has been accused of being xenophobic in an attempt by both the media and the left to prevent him from exposing the truth. This is why Heinz-Christian Strache has been nominated for “The Unshackler Of The Year Award.”
