Update : Steve the National Socialist has done the White thing and documented his support for Australia First (NSW) in the ding-dong battle for a seat in Sutherland Shire Council Ward A; a minor skirmish inspired by the “growing resistance to the politics of New World Order liberal-globalist-capitalism throughout Australia”. Take it away Steve:
First, the far right (Australia First and Australian Protectionist Party).
In the shire of Sutherland, former admirer of Hitler and member of the Stormfront forum Darrin Hodges — the Nationalist Anarchist Protectionist — wanted a seat in Council Ward D. Unfortunately for Darrin, despite considerable media exposure — and a very handsome face — he came last, garnering just 333 votes or 2% of the total. In Council Ward A, the dynamic team of racists belonging to Australia First (AF) fared a little better; John, Karl and Marleen gaining 867 votes, or 4% of the total. They too, however, came last.
Outside of Sutherland shire, it was a mixed bag for AF. In Blacktown (Fifth Ward), the terrible trio of Tony Pettitt, Terry Cooksley and George Atkinson managed to assemble 1,229 votes between them, or 5% of the total. Congratulations Tony, Terry and George! (The racists also managed to beat Gavin Robinson, with just 139 votes.) In Coffs Harbour, despite being led by the remarkably talented clown Darrell Wallbridge — weddings, parties, anything — AF gained just 436 votes. Again, just 2% of the total. On the plus side, Darrell, Alex Parker, Greg Bailey, Richard Hedditch, and Kevin Baldwin did manage to defeat John Hearne, who received a measly 161 votes. Another plus for AF — or rather, Richard Hedditch — is the one vote he personally received, thus making him a very lucky man. For as Richard noted in his ‘Candidate Information Statement’ (CIS):
My observations of the way humanity is gives me the willies. I’m bored, I want to fail dismally. Electorally, I have no chance whatsoever. I’ll be lucky to pull a single vote, but I’m nominating to run so that my ticket will have the minimum 5 candidates. The ticket I’m associated with has very many good and profoundly brilliant policies. So much so, that if Australia First got a candidate elected I’m sure that I’d push for a 30 percent rates reduction for this electee.
Finally, in Newcastle (Second Ward), the Jew-hating real estate agent Nathan Clarke and his racialist comrades Ian McBryde and Jim Smith failed to sell their anti-Semitic schtick to the voting public. The AF ticket received just 302 votes in total; again, 2%. (Poor old John Sunol came last, however, with just 21 votes.)
Secondly, the far left (Socialist Alliance).
In Newcastle (Third Ward), Socialist Alliance candidates Zane Alcorn, Laura Ealing and Thomas Cameron got 575 votes (2%). In the tense race for Mayor, MC Doc Fruit also came last, with 1,507 votes (2%). In summary then, for the voters of Newcastle, Leninism is more popular than white nationalism, by a margin of 273 votes.
SA, like AF, also stood candidates in Blacktown (Third Ward). Unfortunately for SA (Rachel Evans, Soubhi Iskander and Hassan Abaid), AF (1,229) more than doubled the Leninist vote of just 451 (2%). Finally, in Marrickville Council (North Ward), SA (Pip Hinman, Jill Hickson and Howard Byrnes) fared a little better. Despite coming last, the Leninists gained 4% of the total vote (368 votes).
Now: grab your calculators.
Q. Which comes first? A Bolshevik state? Or a White Australia?
