The Australian Defence League has mixed-up confusion worse than their “Scottish” counterparts. First the League declared its support for a MASS RALLY AGAINST IMMIGRANTS AND ISLAM to defend Australia from WOMEN being STONNED / forced CIRCUMCISIONS by DIRTY ARABIC BUTCHERS / multiple WIVES and G*d knows what else their fertile imaginations could produce. Then they withdrew their support, and decided to promote the April 9 rally as a protest against SHARIA LAW (which, they maintain — with a straight face — is on the verge of being imposed upon the Australian population). Now the bizarros have once again cancelled their support for the event.
Or have they? Who really knows. But the ADL are surely the most pathetic League since the Patriotik Yoof.
(Also, sadly, one of the organisers of the mass rally, Robert Wills (PraiseMuhammad), appears to have exited Facebook. For the record, Robert liked UFC, Coca-Cola, women with nice racks, Carl Barron, loud music and free drinks, misses being a little kid and doesn’t give a f**k.)
In any event, Melbourne locals have organised a counter-rally to oppose the boofheaded bigots — a MASS RALLY AGAINST IDIOTS AND IGNORANCE. So if you’d like to let the bigots belonging to the League, the fascists in the ‘Australian Protectionist Party’, the ‘Southern Cross Soldiers’, boneheads, and all the other racist cranks who are planning on crawling out of the gutter to make a public spectacle of themselves on this occasion know that they are not welcome, do yourself a favour, and come on down.

Woah, this should be fun.
As a joyful spectator of this “war” it will be interesting to see how many show up for each side.
It’s starting to get good now.
I hope you guys do stay peaceful. It makes me sad when the “open-minded” get dumbed down into violence.
Type up a good report.
I yamma moaron!
…it will be interesting to see how many show up for each side.
On the one hand…
At a minimum, I’d expect the handful who nominated themselves as organisers of the MASS RALLY AGAINST IMMIGRANTS AND ISLAM to rock up: Brian McRory, Glenn Anderson, Zowie Hodgson, Mark Hill and Robert Wills.
Beyond that, it’s hard to say. Somewhere between 40 and 50 individuals on Facebook have stated that they’ll attend, but a number of these — it’s very difficult to determine how many — are either trolling, interstate or overseas. And just because somebody states on FB that they’ll attend an event, doesn’t mean that they will. Further, the event was announced almost three weeks ago (roughly), it’s now a week away, but it doesn’t appear to have gathered much momentum in the interim, despite being embraced by the ADL, the Protectionists, the SCS, and no doubt a number of other keyboard heroes.
Of these latter groups:
The ADL was only formed a few months ago, and exists largely in the imagination of some bloke called Jack. It’s never held a public demonstration — this is it’s first. The Protectionists have held one rally, something like a dozen or so attended, and it was in Sydney. The SCS are probably best known for the police shooting of one of its teenage members, Tyler Cassidy, in December 2008. They have hundreds of supporters online, mostly teenage boys or young men in their early 20s, but their activities, insofar as they’re organised, mostly seem to revolve around alcohol consumption, being childish, incoherent and resentful, parading their ignorance of Australian history, culture, politics and society, and embarrassing their parents on public holidays by treating the national flag as an item of clothing.

The only other organisational affiliations that I’m aware of come by way of some bloke called Chris Holmes, who claims to be a unionist (CFMEU) and run a private security firm.
Clint Holmes : I will be their with my union mates ! About time we had a rally for our rights ! No one be afraid to come, because i have my own security company and we will all be ther !
Cheers – Cant wait to see my brothers and sisters stand up !!! – This will be a peaceful protest ! They want us to create mayhem ! Lets win this through a peaceful protest men ! Thats the only way ! Some of my mates are bringing their children ! Looks better for the cameras ! Together we can never be defeated !

In any case, add to the above the fact that the rally was — for inexplicable reasons — scheduled for a Friday afternoon, at a very busy (the busiest in Melbourne) and heavily surveilled public transport hub, to extend over the course of three hours, and to culminate in a march to the State Parliament(!), and you’ve got a dog’s breakfast of a debut for a supposedly serious campaign to stop immigration and cleanse the country of Muslims. What all of this suggests — or rather, confirms — is the fact that those involved in organising the event are politically unsophisticated, organisationally ill-equipped, possibly psychologically disturbed and, on the whole, grossly incompetent racist malcontents.
On the other hand…
The counter-rally will attract The Usual Suspects, who may number anywhere from a few dozen to several hundred. Most will be students, or workers on their lunch break, and they may be joined by a handful of passers-by. (There’s a large number of tertiary students in the city, and most would, I think — and regardless of ethnicity, nationality, race or religion — be inclined to think that those rallying AGAINST IMMIGRANTS AND ISLAM were distasteful, if not simply malevolent, and so much more likely to be hostile than they are sympathetic.)
Further, there will I think be a relatively large and fairly prominent media and police presence, the rally does not have the support of media or any in the local business or political establishment, and state authorities will be loathe to allow any further negative imagery be produced regarding Melbourne’s status as a ‘racist’ city. So any teenage heroics on the part of the SCS (assuming any of them are in fact silly enough to attend) would be fairly quickly curtailed I think.
Finally, given that the event appears to have been inspired by the inflammatory antics of ‘Defence Leagues’ in England (and to a lesser extent Wales — but probably not Scotland *chortle*), I think if, as appears likely at this stage, it’s a dismal failure, it would likely set the bigots back considerably in terms of capitalising upon popular anxieties regarding IMMIGRANTS AND ISLAM… about which subject — especially the uses to which elites put these phobias, the attendant risks in doing so, and the general economic and political context (of recent transformations in trans-national labour flows) — I could write moar, but as almost nobody else cares what I think — and I couldn’t be bothered — I won’t.
As Althusser said of history with regards the economic base, ‘in the final instance’… I guess we’ll just have to wait and see eh?
Well hot damn, I’ve moved up in the world from Fascist Troll to the pride of my very own name. God bless you Bastards!
Haha, for that one line you quoted, you sure did talk a lot.
Yeah, I remember last year the right side had some kinda talk (might of been in Sydney) and only a handful of the left side showed up.
It’s pretty much impossible to tell who will show up or what will happen. Tense subject all this.
I figure one day I’ll get in on the action and stop being a spectator. But it’s a tough choice. Either way I’m not gonna be kicking someone in the head for thinking different or being different.
I have been meaning to get to the bookstore and have a read (I can sit down and read right? I don’t have to buy…). But I have worries of one thing and one thing only, you guys seems to care about everyone other than “Straight-White-People”. Just how it seems from where I am sitting? Care to explain?
When did you stop beating your wife?
I never started. I was meaning to, but the longer I left it, the less I felt it would be a good idea. Everyone else is doing it, but they all started early. Maybe if I get another wife and beat her, then the other one will get jealous and want me to beat her?
You are not the person I was talking to before, put the other person back on, this has nothing to do with you.
ha ha ha ha… funny. hey andy, will you be yelling that comment out at the rally? whose side are you on anyway? ha ha ha ha ha i crack me up
