Comments

All comments are moderated. This can be frustrating as it means that publication is delayed (although generally for less than 24 hours) — but on the other hand it also avoids my having to delete gross acts of stupidity. (My blog is subject to frequent trolling.)

Publication of a comment should not be read as an endorsement of its contents.

I sometimes edit comments for clarity (spelling/grammar) but sometimes do not, especially if mistakes are regular and systematic or in some way amusing. I also sometimes insert commentary: this is indicated by use of square brackets [like this].

I sometimes reject comments, usually if they fall into one of two categories: they are abusive or lame. Links to racist, fascist or otherwise objectionable sites are usually rejected.

    I don’t care what your reasons are or the persons involved,like I said people gathering intell on the public regardless of there political agenda and making it available permanently is apart of big brother.

  2. craig says:

    The antibogan involved government spy agencies they targeted both right wing and left wing.What was meant to be a laugh for there members made draconian laws for all.They the antibogans intended just the right wing to be targeted it didn’t end there.

    @craig:

    A few things:

    1) I’m not an ‘intelligence agency’, I’m a blogger. I don’t gather intelligence on The Public: I monitor the activities of the far right. Most of this activity is public. For example, an electoral campaign by the Australia First Party; a political rally organised by the Australian Defence League; a gig organised by Blood & Honour and the Hammerskins. My principal focus is Melbourne because that’s where I live. Occasionally, someone will contact me offering to provide me with additional information on some group or other. Typically, these are disgruntled former members/associates, ex-partners of members, or members of the public disgusted, say, by the swastika tattooed on to their workmate’s forehead. Such information may be useful or it may not. Mostly, it helps me to develop a better picture of the scene as a whole and some of its micro-politics.

    2) I asked you to identify the material on my blog you find particularly objectionable. You’ve not done so.

    3) I don’t know what you mean by ‘permanent record’ but I think you’re confused about Big Brother. To put it mildly: if ASIO or some other state agency (SIG for example) wish to obtain information on the far right, they *really* don’t have to rely on my blog to do so. Consider also the fact that the resources available to me are miniscule compared to the state, but if it wants to it can find out what you had for breakfast and what colour underpants you’re wearing.

    4) What government agencies did the antibogan blog involve? How? Why do you think it targeted left and right? What Draconian laws do you mean and what did the antibogan blog do to help make them? To the best of my knowledge, most of the material on the antibogan blog was sourced from material published on Facebook; one of the things the blog did or attempted to do was to ‘name and shame’ those responsible for publishing material it considered bigoted (racist, sexist, homophobic etc); commenters on the blog occasionally demanded that Facebook or government authorities or somebody else ‘do something’ about the bigoted views being expressed.

    5) Try understanding where I’m coming from …

    Techniques used by antibogan that caused the backlash.
    1.Informing government agencies to cause harm to the persons life on there political beliefs asio,federal police.
    2.Notifying government agencies where a person works to get the person fired from there employment.
    3.Contacting child services to get persons family removed for political beliefs.
    4.Notifying persons employers to get them fired to cause financial harm for said political beliefs.
    5.Posting pictures of persons children then posting vulgar remarks.
    6.Posting persons picture name and address.
    7.Posting lies of child abuse of persons.
    8.Draconian laws designed for terrorists seizure of assets and banking and employment were enabled through the act on threats of violence due to politically based ideology.For example if someone’s child’s photo was posted and they posted threats for the file to be removed these comments were passed onto asio.Because of the political nature this enabled the draconian laws to be imposed.

    @craig:

    On 1 — 7: and of course you have evidence of this?

    The blog is closed now but I recall a number of people who posted things on Facebook being named. Some also had their places of work listed where such information was included on their profile. For example, if John Smith posted something like ‘I think Muslims are scum and they should all be shot’ a screenshot would be taken of the remark and republished along with John’s profile, which might include reference to his job at Some Company. Or to use an actual example, in late 2010 a man named Joel Buckley wrote that asylum seekers were “DIRTY, CAMEL FUCKING, RAG HEADED PIECES OF SHIT”. I suppose you could dignify this statement with the term ‘political beliefs’ if you wanted to, but to me it reads more like racist abuse. In any case, Joel’s profile revealed he was a member of the RAN. Given that it was possible that it was part of his job to help police the waters to the north of the country, concern was expressed as to whether or not someone with his views should be doing so. I understand that the RAN was then actually contacted, either by the blog and/or others, complaining about the fact that he might be in such a position and that this was inappropriate/he should be disciplined/etc.

    I don’t know what, if anything, happened to Joel as a result of these presumed complaints. From memory, I know of one person who may have lost their job as a result of someone complaining about their posting allegedly racist material on their public profile on Facebook. That person was Terrie-Anne Verney. July 2009:

    A presenter for a NSW community radio station that specialises in multicultural programming has been reprimanded after she was revealed to be an administrator of several racist, anti-immigration groups on Facebook.

    Terrie-Anne Verney, a presenter and sales representative for Griffith FM radio station 2MIA, was the administrator of the group “F— Off, We’re Full” and had also joined several Facebook groups including “Stop the Islamisation of Australia while we still can”, “Australian Conservative United Party”, the “Australian Protectionist Party” and “Australians against Multiculturalism”.

    Apart from her political views, the problem for Terry was that she wrote things like: —

    Of bashed Indian students, she said they were “playing the victim card” and “the shit around their head must do something to their brain”.

    “Maybe a gun to their head might help them get the hint that they are not wanted here!!,” she wrote.

    — and these views clashed with the station’s commitment to ‘multicultural’ programming and content.

    See : Multicultural radio presenter linked to anti-immigration Facebook groups, Asher Moses, SMH, July 2, 2009.

    8. You’re simply wrong about this. theantibogan blog has had 1/4 of 2/5 of fuck-all to do with ‘anti-terrorist’ laws — laws which you’re unable to even name. In reality, these laws were rushed through Federal Parliament in the aftermath of 9/11 — dozens of pieces of legislation have been introduced or amended in the intervening 12 years — and were justified specifically in reference to the threat of terrorism from Islamists, not because theantibogan blog complained about someone being a dickhead on Facebook!!!111!!!

    Further:

    a) concern over the laws has less to do with the fact that ‘terrorists’ might lose their jobs or houses and more to do with the fact that the laws strip citizens of their rights, lower the standard of proof, and massively increase the penalties for engaging in ‘conspiracy’ to commit crime;
    b) the overwhelming majority of ‘terrorism’ cases have involved alleged ‘jihadists’ — not one has involved a White nationalist, neo-Nazi or far right militant.

    “For example if someone’s child’s photo was posted and they posted threats for the file to be removed these comments were passed onto asio.”

    ^ I have no idea what this means.

    Your misinformed thousands lost there job I was personally investigated with at least two hundred more that I have a connection.This is the last time I will communicate now you know the reason why we shut the down and retaliated.

  7. BigKahuna63 says:

    Hai Craigy Waigy.
    Do you bullshit for a living or is it something that just comes naturally?
    Please let me know.

  8. inglourious_basterd says:

    Hi Kahuna,

    Craig and the other bruised far right walking egos have to have justification to themselves for stalking, bullying and generally being arseholes when their racism, bigotry and other general nastiness is exposed to public scrutiny.

    The solutions have always been there for Craig and friends and this next bit is addressed to them in as simple a language as can be mustered:

    1. If you have undesirable antisocial urges like racism and bigotry, keep it to yourselves. Just as society finds public defecation undesirable and offensive, it is likewise with racism and bigotry. In fact many people are in prison for letting themselves succumb to undesirable and offensive urges to murder, rape, assault and abuse. Think about it.

    And don’t post evidence-free defamation and vilification of minorities on public forums. Andrew Bolt learnt that the hard way.

    2. Blogs don’t sack people. Employers do. Employers want harmonious workplaces delivering quality customer service. Racists, bigots and homophobes tend not to have those skills. And customers don’t want to come to businesses that are prejudiced.

    Do you get it now?

    3. There are no giant conspiracies involving bloggers, children and the security services unless you think the Family Court is into conspiracy fairytales, or you are a “father’s rights” nutjob.

    If you want to read about a landmark case involving child custody and unsavoury beliefs then go to this one.

    Nothing to do with any blogs by the way.

    FYI. Andy being critical of islam is not being racist. There are Arab, African, Asian and Caucasian muslims. Anything that one can choose to join is not a race. Islam is a religion that many people people find threatening, they should be allowed to express there concerns without being branded racist.

    I encourage my brothers and sisters on the Right not to use foul language because people switch off straight away. The Left is most susceptible to humour, because their beliefs are just so damn ridiculous you can always find something ridicule. They always end up shooting themselves in the foot. I mean, look at Gillard the worst PM ever. I used to be embarrassed for all Australians when she went overseas. Flaming red hair, knocked kneed, absolutely huge backside, long pointy nose and that rare gift of ALWAYS seeming to talk down to people (though I know she never meant to).

  16. Ivan Erchak says:

    Hello out there. My name is Ivan Erchak. I remember a couple years after Foetus squat burned down and I had been kicked out of Pest squat I decided to take over a pristine and finished building filled with sheetrock. I got the bolt cutters and moved in, supported by Lisa who was at Serenity squat. I received mail there and invoked squatters’ rights. Later a dude named Sonja from Venezuela and a few others sat on the sixth floor and thought about a name for the building as we were preparing to move people in… I came up with name Dos Blockos which seemed funny and ridiculous at the time. It was a bastardization of Spanish and a reference to the fact that we never left those two blocks. It seemed like a shitty name but it stuck. So funny… I think I first camped in there for a month single handed around 1991… bless. It became the Last Chance Hotel. I was delighted to see how long it held up after I left for the trains. So happy to be a part of the legend and the movement. Bless.

  26. Adam says:

    Happened upon yr blog, not sure how, got up too early, but it is surprising that such idiocy is seemingly rampant in our very midst. Loving the satirical undertone, the best way to underline the evolutionary shortcomings of those who subscribe to all this white Oz nonsense. A shallow point I’ll concede, but don’t some of these fools appear decidedly underdeveloped? Some muddy gene pools at play there. As a devout substance monist it pains me to think that we all flow from the same font. Maybe Devo were on to something. Keep up the good work.

    You are a Fascist pig who tries to stop free speech by accusing people of being Racist

  30. Confused says:

    I’m confused you claim to be an anarchist but have the “trot guide” on your page which by its nature would suggest you subscribe to a left wing ideology? Apart from a mutual hatred of fascists there isn’t that much in common with an anarchist belief structure especially when you consider the Socialist Alliance …

  31. Sossle says:

    SLACK BASTARD – Anarchy and apathy battle it out on @ndy’s blog.

    Lol, what a fallacy.

    Should be corrected to –

    LOOSE GRAMMAR NAZI – Leftism and naivety unite to misdirect and misinform on @ndy’s blog.

    Let’s unite together against freedom of speech and expression and support institutional tyrannism. And scream racist at anyone that disagrees with our viewpoint. Andy is here to show the way to a bright new future living under caliphate rule, where we all are subjugated equally.

    I really don’t understand why you fly under a false flag, if you want to help dismantle the cultural values that make Australia such a good place to live. Why pretend to be an anarchist and defender of social freedoms? Because it’s quite clear from your blog and posts elsewhere that you are anything but those things. You’ve really missed the ball on this one Andy…

  36. AnarchoCommieLiberalScum says:

    Andy you have the correct amount of slackness, and just the right amount of bastard to get my socialist libertarian senses tingling. I’m impressed by the amount of hatred your site generates from unintelligent racist bastards everywhere. Well done comrade. I feel proud to be unAustralian when I read your blog but sadly Ozfailure will never be free till the entrails of the last Nazi are wrapped around the throat of the last patriot.

  37. AnarchoCommieLiberalScum says:

    If I met you in real life I’d love to throw a few flags on the BBQ over a beer, and we could have a good laugh at those idiots who think a Halal Mars Bar forces Australians to live under Sharia law.

  38. [pseudonym] says:

    You seem to support the antifa, i am just curious how you can claim to fight against intolerance and against fascism when you yourself are an intolerant fascist?

    “Woah what the Dickens” you might say, but honestly to be intolerant towards intolerance is ridiculous as you [are] doing exactly what you’re preaching against. You are telling people “my way is right yours are wrong” “my ethics are the right ones your beliefs are shit”, you are naming names and shaming people and calling them out and trying to stamp a belief system off the face of the earth? So you are pretty much behaving like a nazi. Can you not see the contradiction in your behavior?

    Also do you not see you are giving more attention to these hate groups? The ONLY reason I heard about Reclaim Australia and all that bollocks was because the opposing protestors clashed which then made it reach the news, it reaching the news made me say “what’s Reclaim Australia” and look it up, which is what many others would do. As you can see with the UPF it is SO small, it’s barely anything, the way it will get bigger (much like the fascists of the antifa itself) is through people promoting it (for or against) because even if you’re against it you will get people seeing it as “oh they are hated, that’s bad ass, I’m gonna rebel” – or whatever shit appeals to those people, but the point being the more attention you give it the more power you give it.

    The old saying “any publicity is good publicity” means so much more in this day and age, and even plastering the net with pics of guys with swazi tats and stuff WILL appeal to some people, thus you are helping them recruit.

    Also in the case of the antifa, they ARE an intolerant and fascist group, they commit more crime and violence against people for having different beliefs than the fascists they fight. Fighting intolerance with intolerance only makes the group look hypocritical and idiotic.

    Now imagine this, imagine if an antifa member went up to a skinhead and hugged him, sure the chances are the skin would react violently HOWEVER that makes the skins look worse and like degenerate thugs, instead of the antifa member looking like contradictory hooligan scum (with a false sense of fighting the good fight, which let’s face it is exactly the mentality of white power groups).

    This is just food for thought. But if you were truly anti intolerance or anti fascist you would not have this blog judging people for their beliefs and being intolerant. Hug it out. Stop promoting them. Stop promoting fake antifascists who are fascist. You are saying “free antifa prisoners … who murdered people”. I mean c’mon. This makes you look downright ignorant. “Free hat!”

  39. AntiFascist says:

    It beggars belief that you could write that anyone who is anti-Islam is a fascist. Islam is not a religion, it is an ideology. Everything about how a Muslim lives is dictated by the Koran and Sunnah. For normal religions, the belief is part of the individual; for Islam, the individual is part of the belief. That sounds like fascism to me.
    The fact that you support Islamists shows that you do not possess any understanding of Islam and nor do you value equality – equality of people, religion, or gender. Read this biography of Mohammed …

    Perhaps you might then question the morals and motives of anyone who could follow the teachings of a man who had sex with a nine year old, encouraged and rewarded murders that silenced his critics, was a rapist, and also a mass murderer of Jews. The Koran is a hate book, nothing more, nothing less. There are over 100 references to killing kafirs (that’s you by the way), and more references to killing Jews than Mein Kampf. And of course Islam’s treatment of women is unimpeachable.

    So no, Reclaim Australia supporters are not racists (Islam is not a race), not bigots (just informed and alarmed citizens), and not fascists (just people who value the freedom of everyone, including misguided individuals who support Islamists).

    But hey, just bury your head in the sand – at least it will be harder for Islamists to hack it off.
