For those of you coming in late, the Australia First Party (AF) and Australian Protectionist Party (APP) are currently fighting a ding-dong battle for the hearts and minds of White nationalists in Australia. Both parties — neither of which, it should be noted, are as yet registered with the AEC — oppose non-White immigration and ‘multiculturalism’ and, as part of a broader-ranging nationalism, wish to see a return to a White Australia policy on the part of government. Sadly, they part ways over the question of who and/or what constitutes the greatest threat to White Australia. For AF, it is New World Order liberal-globalist-capitalism and the ‘traitor class’ — heavily-indebted to the Zionist lobby nudge nudge wink wink — which is responsible for our current malaise. APP, on the other hand, like the BNP, claims not to be anti-Semitic, and views Islamisation (and Asianisation) as being matters of the most pressing concern.
Beyond any political differences, acrimony between the parties is also fuelled by the fact that the APP emerged as a reaction to the perceived failings of AF’s current leadership, and the poor character of Dr James Saleam (dubbed ‘The Mad Arab’ by right-wing critics on account of his Lebanese ancestry and personal style). For its part, AF accuses APP of going soft on The Jewish Question, and of being far too close to the far right within the Liberal Party (Darrin Hodges, chief spokesperson for APP in NSW, is a former member) in both its organisation and its political perspectives. Further, while AF looks to Germany and the NPD for its inspiration, APP models itself upon the more ‘moderate’ British National Party (which AF has denounced in favour of the National Front).
Given the collapse of such groups as Australians Against Further Immigration (AAFI), and the continuing disintegration of the One Nation Party (ONP) in its various forms, it’s possible that, in the longer term (and barring the emergence of another right-wing demagogue such as Pauline Hanson), either or both AF and APP will become the leading racist, right-wing fringe party. Given that’s the case, how are they faring? Some recent developments are outlined below.

Those Pesky Protectionists
APP member Nicholas (Hunter) Folkes *s in a report by Kate Carr in a Sydney local newspaper concerning his supposed candidacy for the seat of Sydney at the next Federal election.
Folkes is a rather funny fellow. In previous remarks on my blog, he’s accused me of being a “racist wanker”, a “Marxist Nazi turd” and an “anti-Semite”, described Greens leader Bob Brown as an “anarchist homo” and a “poof” who will be killed by Muslims if they’re given the opportunity (a point also made by APP NSW chairperson Darrin Hodges during the course of his brief appearance on an episode of Q&A), and who believes that “Nazis, Pinkos and Greens” are “all part of the same divisive mob”.
Elsewhere, Nicholas treats readers to the following words of wisdom (January 10, 2009):
You are mentally challenged… just read your crap comment regarding muslim school at camden. That psycho nutter is you and all your muslim rapist friends. Australia was wealthier and better off when it was ‘whiter’. Now that all the foreign trash has arrived, isn’t it amazing that our standard of living has dropped?
In August 2009 Folkes, a rabid supporter of the British National Party (BNP), denounced Filipinos on the BNP Facebook page in the following terms:
Filipinos are gold diggers, they’d marry your grandfather and clear out all the silver and kick dysfunctional idiots like you onto the street. Britain does not need foreign labour in good times or bad. Cheap foreign labour reduces wages, increases house and rental costs, increase [sic] welfare costs, increases crime and anti-social behaviour. Remember toad, Britian [sic] is first world and the Phillipines [sic] is third world, do you get my drift. Import these blowflies and you will go down to their level.

Paula, the Filipinos will build shanty towns like Smokey Mountain in Britain. We have plenty of these free loaders in Australia, do not let them into Britain. Their qualifications are not the same standard as Britians [sic]. The more foreign rubbish you let in the weaker the British economy will be. Vote BNP for a return to common sense and British first policies.

Paul – you are a dickhead. Filipino women like you because you are a ticket out of their third world hellhole. About being good in bed, they told me that you are shit in bed[.]

Typically, Folkes denies the allegation of racism; that honour, apparently, belongs to myself. Similarly, Folkes attacks Islam for its homophobia, but is himself hardly enamoured of “anarchist homos” or “poofs” such as Bob Brown. In other words, Folkes is a garden variety bigot who lacks the intelligence to properly disguise his bigotry by way of coding his language.
Inner west residents infuriated by the Australian Protectionist Party
Inner West Courier
March 17, 2010
HE thinks Pauline Hanson was misunderstood and that Australia should accept migrants primarily from Europe and Britain, but ask the Australian Protectionist Party’s (APP) Nick Folkes if he is racist and you will get a resounding “no”.
The APP has been infuriating residents in the Inner West by distributing leaflets which call for an end to “African crime”, and blame migrants for everything from unemployment and the housing crisis to climate change.
According to Mr Folkes the party was just talking about “the facts and the reality of what is going on”.
“We call for an end to high numbers of migrants,” Mr Folkes said.
A Rozelle resident for 17 years, Mr Folkes denied his party was on the fringe of politics. “We are here [to] dispel the myth that nationalists are Nazis,” he said. “We are rightwing but not extreme.”
Mr Folkes said he was aware his party would struggle in the left-leaning Inner West but he was still going to run in the seat of Sydney in the next federal election.
“As we get more multicultural and diverse we are just having more problems,” Mr Folkes said.
The APP is particularly focused on Islam and has three flyers on its website addressing the issue of extremism.
Mr Folkes said he was concerned at the treatment of women and gay people by Islam, however his own party opposed adoption rights for same-sex parents and government funding of “homosexual groups”.
The party’s leaflets have prompted several residents to contact the Courier…
Complaints regarding allegedly racist leaflets have also occurred in the nearby suburb of Chippendale, on that occasion being produced and distributed by fascist groupuscule Nationalist Alternative (NA). NA most recently came to attention by way of staging an abortive Nuremberg Rally in Perth earlier this month, attempting to promote er, water conservation and opposition to immigration at a rally against the Federal Government’s plans to introduce a web filter.
Chippendale is, of course, one of the suburbs in Tanya Pilbersek’s electorate — the (very) safe seat of Sydney; it is also the location of Humanist House. Humanist House is a property owned by the Humanist Society of NSW, at which local racists have been meeting for the last eight years. The Humanist Society itself contains dozens of racists and fascists in its ranks and, according to another local newspaper report, last month even had one of these fascists, Mark Pavic, elected its Vice-President (see : John August ~versus~ slackbastard, March 19, 2010).
Australia First : Keep On Truckin’
Australia First declared this week (Eureka!, No.219, March 17, 2010) that it will be standing two candidates in western Sydney at the next Federal election: Tony Pettitt, a 55-year-old truckie, in the seat of Greenway and Mick Saunders, a 52-year-old truckie, in the seat of Lindsay. (See also : The Idealistic Faces Of “Australianism”, November 28, 2009). Party Führer Dr James Saleam says: “The party is running on a programme which will focus on the refugee invasion, contract labour and the globalist attack upon Australian small business and workers. We are concerned with the need for direct democracy to deliver Australians from the party dictatorship.”
The latest date given for the registration of the party is now May 1, almost one year since it announced (July 2009) it had obtained the requisite numbers to do so.
AF has also declared that it will be throwing its puny weight behind cockie Peter Spencer who, before coming to fame for sitting up a pole and not eating, was renowned for his love of chopping down trees. Thus:
Australia First (Toowoomba) is sponsoring and co-organising a meeting with Peter Spencer, hero of the pole protest hunger strike. The meeting is [Saturday, March 27]. Peter will be warning Queenslanders of the property grab policies that governments can enforce against landowners. It is expected that hundreds of Darling Downs residents will attend. More details are on the Queensland website.
Nicole Hanley, a neo-Nazi and co-organiser of AF’s annual Sydney Forum, attended a protest rally held in support of Spencer in Canberra on February 2, providing a breathless account of the event for the benefit of readers of Stormfront, the world’s leading source of news and views on all thing White, and host to members of both AF and APP.
Finally, AF is also currently raffling a copy of Imperium by good fascist Francis Parker Yockey. If you really want to secure a copy of Yockey’s magnum opus, however, local neo-Nazi distro 9 percent productions has Imperium for sale for the measly sum of $35.
