Why the media lied about the Antifa extremists at St Kilda
It’s often tempting to blame ignorance or laziness for the continual inability of the Australian press to name the left wing extremist organisations responsible for almost all political violence in this country.
But after St Kilda on Saturday that’s simply not possible.
As the Unshackled showed yesterday the “counter rally” on the beach was organised, led and mostly composed of the most radical violent political extremists in Australia today. Almost every significant Marxist and Anarchist group in Melbourne had representation somewhere in the crowd.
Yet this is how the press described them:
ABC: “Anti racists clash with far right”
The New Daily: “Three people have been arrested and several others detained during duelling protests at Melbourne’s St Kilda beach involving right-wing extremists and anti-fascists.”
News.com : “Far right groups clash with anti-racism protesters on St Kilda’s foreshore”
SBS: “Violence on St Kilda’s foreshore between right-wing extremists and anti-racism campaigners”
Ipswich Advertiser: “police formed a human wall to separate warring far-Right and anti-racism protesters.”
Ten Daily: “Police On Alert After Far-Right And Anti-Racist Groups Clash In St Kilda”
The Guardian Australia: “hundreds of far-right wing extremists and anti-racism campaigners faced off”
Australian Associated Press (via the West Australian): “Anti-fascist protesters gathered from about 12pm AEST ahead of the 1pm event planned by convicted criminals Blair Cottrell and Neil Erikson”
Sunshine Coast Daily (reprinted on other News Corp properties as well): ” anti-fascists chanted “unite, unite, unite to fight the right” and “no Nazis, never again”.
Blayney Chronicle: “Several hundred people came for the rallies, the first held at 12pm by anti-racism campaigners ahead of a right-wing event”
The Australian: “A day after stemming violence on St Kilda’s foreshore between right-wing extremists and anti-racism campaigners”
The Age: “The shouts of anti-fascist protesters…The anti-racism protesters…Anti-racism protester Richard…”
And we could go on forever in the same vein.
“Anti-racist” hey? Well nobody likes mindless bigotry, they must be the good guys. “Anti-Fascist”? Even better! The Fascists were bastards, we fought them in WW2, nobody in Australia has any time for them. If you listen to the media, from the left to the supposed “right” it’s very easy to see which side they think you should be supporting.
And that’s not even talking about “journalists” such as Josh Butler of Ten Daily who actually wrote a piece before the event purporting to explain who the counter protesters were without actually mentioning who the counter protesters were. Instead he gave out contact details and all but urged his readers to attend again describing the Marxist and Anarchist extremists as “Anti-fascists”.
It bears repeating. This counter rally was originally called on Facebook by Sue Munro, a radical extremist who has been a member, activist and spokeswoman for several Trotskyist groups and Trotskyist front organisations including the Socialist Party, the Victorian Socialists and the “No room for racism” group. She has a history of involvement in violent protests to shut down and attack right of centre rallies and events going back years. She attended the event with, and is a close associate of convicted murderer David Hollis.
The main body of protesters was organised under the banner of the “Campaign against racism and Fascism” by Socialist Alternative, the largest, best organised and most violent political extremist group in Australia today. Socialist Alternative is a Marxist group of the Trotskyist school, which means they believe the Soviet Union would have worked out fine if the (even more extreme) Trotsky had been in charge of the secret police rather than Stalin.
The aims of Socialist Alternative and other Trotskyist groups are simple and no secret, in the case of SAlt you can find them in the statement of principles displayed on their website. They aim to divide Australian society into warring camps, stir up conflict and eventually civil war between these groups and then use the disorder to come to power. They then aim to dissolve the police, armed forces and the judiciary and replace them with new, suitably “Marxist” versions under their total control. After that the next step is to abolish the electoral system, the parliaments, the flag, the constitution, the right to own private property, freedom of the press, freedom of religion and especially freedom of speech.
Fraser Anning on the other hand, the man the media is currently having a furious two minutes hate over, wants Australia to revive a slightly less severe form of the immigration system we had before 1973.
Gee I wonder which of these two the average Aussie would say is the extremist?
I know journalists in my personal life and still have some in my social circle. Perhaps because i know them I’ve always been able to wave away their constant and dangerous covering up for far left extremists as simple laziness or ignorance.
Looking at their articles about St Kilda on Saturday I see the press smearing ordinary proud Australians worried about their communities with the actions of a few idiots mockingly roleplaying Faulty Towers while not only ignoring but nigh on promoting dangerous treasonous Australia hating fanatics bent on the destruction of everything our ancestors built and its replacement with a soulless totalitarian state. I find I can no longer be so generous.
The fourth estate, from News Corp to what was once Fairfax, from commercial television to the ivory tower of the ABC, are knowingly complicit in the rise and legitimisation of possibly the greatest threat our country has ever faced.
The journalists know the people they’re supporting are extremists who hate Australia and want to burn it to the ground. And they still promote them as benign, even heroic “anti-racists” and “anti-fascists”.
And that should both terrify and enrage all of us.
