On the latest Report Show we are joined once again by Associate Editor of The Unshackled Tom Pirrone. Both of us attended the Australia Pride March organized by the True Blue in Melbourne on Sunday 25th June 2017 to report on it for The Unshackled. So we decided to reflect on the experience and what we learned about both the patriot movement and the socialist left.
We observed that the patriot movement, contrary to the stereotype of them being angry hotheaded white men are actually a very diverse group of people and are friendly with those who engage with them in good faith. We noted there was a heavy police presence at the event but we noticed that was only because of the socialist counter rally and their reputation for wanting to violently attack their opponents, the police liaising with the patriots was friendly and constructive. The march itself proceeded peacefully and we noticed that the speeches on the steps of Victoria’s Parliament were messages of love for Australia and wanting to protect the nation, there was nothing about Nazism, racism, sexism or homophobia as the socialists insults suggested.
We reflect on the post march interviews we did with members of the True Blue Crew and observed that what their aim really was in being involved with the patriot movement was about building a cohesive and proud Australia. We also comment on how well our reporting was received as many Australians were finally glad that there was a media organization at the march who actually reported the real story. We discuss how covering the march and having our own first hand account of the event also exposed how much the mainstream media and the left lie and deliberately misrepresent the views and behavior of the patriot movement.
