After tearfully waving goodbye to Warwick, there were very few reasons to take an interest in the Queensland state election. Leaving just…
The Usual Suspects
There were two socialists standing for Parliament on March 21: Mike Crook in Sandgate and Sam Watson in South Brisbane.
Mike Crook in Sandgate
Mike received 359 (1.33%) votes, coming last of six candidates. Um… so yeah.
Sam Watson in South Brisbane
“One of the most prominent Murri campaigners in Brisbane”, Sam got 306 (1.42%) of votes, placing fifth. (There were nine candidates in total, with the three voted Most Popular Vocal Performer south of Brisbane between them sharing nine of every ten votes.)
Rosa Lee Long is an archaism: the last gasp of the One Nation Party. “I have no other duties other than giving Dalrymple the best representation possible” said Rosa, which if true suggests that she needs a new hobby. Still, with around 7,000 votes (1/3), Rosa will obviously have many supporters with suggestions.
In Condamine, Rod Watson thrashed the Independent Stephanie Bugg, 703 votes to 257, and proved to be only slightly less popular than The Greens.
Peregrine John Beverley Jewell failed to place his sweaty hands on the levers of Government power again in 2009. Peregrine tested his popularity at the polls in Toowoomba North and gained 438 votes (1.75%) for his trouble, 98.25% of the people apparently failing to realise the peril they are facing in the New World Order liberal-globalist-capitalist conspiracy.
In Hervey Bay, Peter Schuback proved once again that the road to Parliament is a long one for Independents, gaining 1,086 votes (4.97%), a slight drop in popularity since he last tilted at the political windmill.
As noted previously, this is not Peter’s first crack at a seat in Parliament. In 1998, Schuback got 1107 votes — outpolling the LaRouchite candidate (and thereby avoiding last place). In 2001, Peter put forward his platform in the Rockhampton electorate as a candidate for the short-lived City Country Alliance. In a three-horse race, Peter again came last, winning a respectable 2,056 votes (8.9%). (In the 2001 Federal election, Peter stood as an Independent in the seat of Capricornia. For his troubles, he received 512 votes, or 0.7%.) In 2006, again contesting Hervey Bay, he gained 1,607 votes (5.82%), coming last of five candidates.
Finally, The Wicked Witch from Ipswich may have blown her last chance at gaining a Government job.
Ms Hanson’s candidacy in Beaudesert, south of Brisbane, attracted national media attention but not enough voters. She secured 22 per cent of the vote to run third behind Labor and the Liberal National Party winner Aiden McLindon…
The One Nation founder blamed the media for her loss, referring to the publication of raunchy photographs of a young woman erroneously claimed to be her in the mid-1970s by News Limited Sunday newspapers.
Ah Queensland, gay one day and totally fabulous the next! Just ask Long Dong Drew –
“I advise that this web site will cease to be that of the Brisbane branch as of March 30 due to party member objections to some items of content and subsequent censorship by party officials. Another emerging party branch will utilise the domain name. I will be concentrating on my other interests one of which is the development of a fitness training/social group for gays. I will also be active in Brisbane Sun Boys.”
Now as I recall, Jim Saleam came out in defence of Long Dong Drew on SemenFront[!]:
“The Management Committee of Australia First Party (NSW) Incorporated advises:
1. We condemn the poisonous attack upon John Drew (Australia First, Brisbane), who is otherwise incorrectly represented as the ‘leader’ of our party in Queensland. The homosexual slur is repudiated. Mr. Drew informed us:
“I am heterosexual and always have been. I do not condone the so-called homosexual lifestyle. The material quoted against me was more my description of data supplied to me by a ‘gay’ to explain his bizarre personal choices. The information (sic) was acquired more than thirty years ago in a large ‘share-house’ when I was a student. If the composition was not clear, I now make it very clear. I was describing others. I regard the slur on me as an attempt at character assassination by a person with a record of smear and false allegation.”
Mr. Drew offered to stand aside whilst the party examined the matter.”
Oh my! Soooooo exciting! A real life game of ‘hide the sausage!’ Where will Long Dong Drew pop up next? Does he bat for both sides? Did Saleam slip him a salami? Inquiring minds want to know!
Comrade Drew is not a homosexual nor has he ever been a homosexual. I have had man[y?] discussions with the man and I can only say that I have faith in him that he is telling the truth. The claims against him are totally slanderous and disgraceful.
John is a heterosexual man who happens to have declared, following his forced departure from AF, that he will be concentrating on his other interests, one of which happens to be the development of a fitness training/social group for gays. By some odd coincidence, John also intends to be active in a nudist club in southeast Queensland for gay and bisexual men over the age of 18 who enjoy this natural life style.
He may just want to make some cash.
Stop putting my name in the title, Andrew.
As soon as you stop being silly, Peter.
“The claims against him are totally slanderous and disgraceful.”
Nobody has made any “claims against him” Peter, the words are his own words.
“He may just want to make some cash.” Which is obviously why Comrade Drew described it as an “interest” on par with his activities with the Far Right. Shit like this is why I read Andy’s blog. Absolute gold.
Ha ha, look at Peter Watson’s blog, he’s gone all bonehead on us – as if his brain wasn’t frazzled enough.
I bet Comrade Drew is very interested in young Peter.
Yes, I am a bonehead but I am still a dedicated socialist who believes in the working class. Communism may be dead and gone, capitalism may be close to being dead but I will always have comrade Stalin in my heart. But communism and Marxism are dead. We must move on and build the glorious socialist movement of the Australian people. We must combine socialism, racialism and nationalism together to create Nationalist Socialism. Communism and capitalism are really stupid because both are fundamentally impossible to work and communism can’t even be achieved. But still, the memories will live on and the create [great?] Stalin will live on in our memories. But the dream was simply that, a dream. So, it is time we say good bye, communism and good bye, Stalin. I should make a movie about it. I’ll call it “Good Bye, Stalin”. Yes, it killed tens of millions of people but you can’t stay mad at Stalin. After all, just look at what he did. The boneheads are all right people. The are a working class group that believe in decent values and stuff. Anarchists are just faggots who are mentally deranged. The media spread lies about us but it isn’t true what they say about us. We must expose these lies. What we need is a cultural revolution and purge these enemies from their jobs. They are enemies of the Australian people. Reporters and other officials must follow the mass line on all things. Nationalist Socialism (I some times call it National Bolshevism) is the way of the future. We will soon achieve the final victory over our enemies. We will achieve power and save Australia from the occupying forces of the foreign imperialists.
Comrade Drew is a good bloke. He did take some interest in helping me and provided me with lots of stuff that I needed to build up the Australia First Party presence in Warwick. We need more people like him in the nationalist socialist movement. What is so wrong with a normal middle aged bloke wanting to start a business to help young men with their fitness? Like, I would love to have a gym like that here in Warwick. One on one help. The service at the local gym is a disgrace because we have young chicks there who don’t know what they are doing.
Peter, you truly are a raving lunatic.
Peter is either giving a brilliant critique or has finally lost it. Maybe the two aren’t mutually exclusive, eh? Shine on, you crazy diamond.
I know you ‘corrected’ Peter, but I’m not sure it is a typo when he writes of the “man discussions” he’s been having with ‘Comrade Drew’. You never know with Peter, maybe they really are man discussions. I suspect an attempt at irony also with the following: “What is so wrong with a normal middle aged bloke wanting to start a business to help young men with their fitness? Like, I would love to have a gym like that here in Warwick. One on one help. The service at the local gym is a disgrace because we have young chicks there who don’t know what they are doing.” Peter’s homophobic outbursts are hardly subtle after all, and from him it is a little hard to take literally.
His discovery of the value of ‘racialism’ is pretty charmless.
He’s a odd one, our Peter. Mind you, Joe Hildebrand is impressed enough to include a link to the Stalinist League on his blog. I wonder if that will change given Peter’s recent re-orientation?
I am not lunatic and nor am I mad. The ideas that I am putting forward are really logical if you think about them. They are based on years of studying and thinking about the current situation and system that are facing the Australian people. The reason why you think that I am mad is because my ideas are totally different to … your ideas. I never said “mad discussions”. The reason why I refer to Drew as comrade is because he is a very good friend to have in the battle against international anarchism and the capitalist-intelligentsia regime which currently controls Australia through proxy forces in the legislature, executive and in the legal system. I was being serious when I was talking about the local gym and Drew’s decision to become involved in his local gym for young men. You people have no idea how serious I am when I talk about these and other matters at hand. Just wait until I prove my self and then all you people will be scared. Yes, I am homophobic. Homosexuals disgust me with their decadent attitudes to life and their life styles. They are really bad for our society and they need to be dealt with by the powers to be. The homosexuals are the true social degenerates. It is a proven fact that most paedophiles are homosexual. Homosexuality and paedophilia go hand in hand with each other. [T]o deal with one you must deal with the other in order to wipe them from society. They are social degenerates destroying our society’s values. We must come up with a final solution to solve these problems. You people think that I am trying to be funny or be a comedian. Well, I am not. In fact, I am more serious th[a]n most people think. Just wait until the new world order when we achieve power.
oh no! Long Dong Drew has been expelled from AFP again!

who will represent the gay nazi in the village now?
“You people have no idea how serious I am when I talk about these and other matters at hand.”
I know what “matters of hand” you and comrade Drew are up to.
[Fly Away Peter.]
Here is Peter’s final comment on my blog. Whatever humour or enjoyment may once have been obtained through an appreciation of Peter’s advocacy of ‘Stalinism’ — or diatribes regarding The International Nerd/Goth Conspiracy — has run its course. So unless you can convince me otherwise (or you wish to invite Peter to converse with you on your own blog), I’ve had enough of his bratty behaviour for the time being.
Up behind the bus stop in the toilets off the street
There are traces of a killing on the floor beneath your feet
Mixed up with the piss and beer are bloodstains on the floor
From the boy who got his head kicked in a night or two before
The worst disease
You can’t love who you want to love in times like these
In the pubs, clubs and burger bars, breeding pens for pigs
Alcohol, testosterone and ignorance and fists
Packs of hunting animals roam across the town
They find an easy victim and they punch him to the ground
The worst disease
You can’t love who you want to love in times like these
The siren of the ambulance, the deadpan of the cops
Chalk to mark the outline where the boy first dropped
Beware the holy trinity — church and state and law
For every death the virus gets more deadly than before
The worst disease
You can’t love who you want to love in times like these

Yes quite clearly our ideas differ… This “tuck shop” policy was lifted from the Stalinist League of Australia website:
“Having a tuck shop at high schools is a great idea. But some things need to be done to make it more productive because of the increase of the number of customers. It was a bard [sic] mistake to take away the gates that separate the lines and keep people on the sides [sic] from jumping on line cutting[?]. Here is what The League wants to do:
(a) Reintroduced the fences to separate the lines.
(b) Put the fences up at the sides to keep line jumpers from line jumping.
[c] Hire good haring [sic] working students to serve at the tuck shop [sic] and pay them.
[d] Expand the tuck shop.
[e] Punish line jumpers very harshly (I.e. one or two formal detentions).
[f] Sell food what [sic] students and stuff want there to be sold [sic].
[g[ Put a box at the side of the tuck shop and some paper where people can put in their requests , ideas et [sic] in there.”
I never realised that reorganising the tuckshop line was such a pivotal priority in staging the National Bolshevist revolution.

Peter Watson spot! He was at the Toowoomba Labour Day march on Sunday back wearing his Stalinist CPA badges. Everyone was avoiding him like the plague, he is known around town as a raving looney.
Funny that Frank, the Labor Day March was on Saturday. I should know I was there taking happy snaps of the very few Reds that attended. Can[‘]t say I saw any CPA badges on the day. Nice job @ndy good to see that you are keeping up with the spreading of childish gossip.
No one would have a clue who old Pete is in Toowoomba. But it[‘]s always good to know that we have [an] @ndy supporter in town. Frank you won[‘]t be hard to find now. Thanks for the heads up.
Ah. Threats and casual self-reporting of nutty behaviour. I do wonder if you have any insight into your creeping madness. Do you feel it scratching under your scalp? Do the kangaroos loose in your top paddock cry out in your dreams, asking you to rescue Australia from herself?
My formatting didn’t work. This was the extra-creepy line:
Yeesh. I can’t help but think that will end up quoted in an article with the title ‘Local man kills family, self.’
Ah Lumpen here we go again. Creepy, nutty behavior you say, threats you say? Taking pictures collecting information on possible supporters of your sick ideology is something we have had to learn from the likes of Mathew Henderson, Brian Stokes, Donald Oorst and @ndy. After all it was your colleagues from Fight Dem Back who put the whole stalking game on the table. You do recall your comrades at FDB now don’t you?
How totally FDB of you, attempting to discredit me with a ridiculous claim? Strange you still use false information sourced from some of the creepiest people I have had the displeasure to deal with over the years.
The fact that I just wasted five minutes of my day on a blind fool such as you detracts from the facts in my previous comment. The May Day March was on Saturday, there weren’t any members of the CPA present. @ndy is publishing gossip.
CPA badges? Apart from a few badges produced by the current Communist Party for elections (you can find one for the CPA SA election campaign on the Party’s website), there are no badges of the current CPA. Mind you, are you talking about the badges of the old CPA that was abolished a year before I was born? Are you talking about the Soviet badges that were produced before I was born (USSR dissolved in 1991 same time that the old CPA did. I was born in 1992)? I was 8 when the 20th century ended so I didn’t have much to do with last century’s politics.
Yeah well, whoever “Frank Mendel” is, they’re free to comment, just as Jim Perren is free to curse The Jews for taking his parking spot, and just as liquid gets into this chalk.
I was right behind you at one stage and you were pretty keen to get a copy of the Vanguard newspaper and the other ADVOCATE leaflet that was handed out.
Lumpen, Jim has lost it, how he can let Pete walk around Toowoomba with his commie badges has got me stuffed. Of course Pete is well known for his previous attempts to hassle union members and the ALP with his nutcase ideas.
Wear some nazi regalia next year and we can all have a good laugh at you.
1) I don’t see them as equivalent positions, and I doubt many other people would. Racism and anti-racism are not polar opposites. Racism is irrational; it’s simply insane to attribute behaviour, intelligence and/or crimes to someone regardless of what they have or haven’t done. Therefore, the position of someone who is anti-racist, i.e. someone who understands that a person can only be judged on their actions, is not an equivalent irrational decision. I realise that you will not understand this because you are mental. Just thought I’d mention it for those keeping score at home.
2) One of the things that makes you a crazy person is the fact that you attribute behaviour to your enemies, such as the website Fight Dem Back, while engaging in the exact same behaviour you accuse them of. Do you not see that as really, super-fucking-strange? In other words, your argument depends on your enemies being as ratfuck insane as yourself. You are ridiculous and pathetic. There is no basis to your beliefs. You lose. Go home.
You attribute powers and behaviours to people that are not possible. PROTIP: Your life is shit because you are a fool. Jews are not to blame. Blacks aren’t dragging you down. Communists didn’t prolong your loneliness or stop Aussies from being grouse.
Going to a May Day march in some little fucking town and taking photos of “communists” who you then threaten, to me, is a sign that you simply cannot grasp the realities around you. You focus on the inconsequential because of your inability to process the world around you. Attributing my position to a website and people who I have never met beggars belief.
People hate racists. It isn’t because we are brainwashed – again, you revert to the irrational to justify an irrational position. I have friends who aren’t white. I have friends who are religious, including non-christian religions. The reality and variety of these relationships informs my position. For some mad man, such as yourself, to attempt to tell me what to do or, even worse, who I can fuck, is an outrage. Well, by “outrage” I mean “kind of annoying that I have to read in my spare time.”
You have no position worth defending. You should be force-fed mind-altering drugs until you stop being annoying or delete yourself from this planet. Seriously: kill yourself. Do it in public and teach me a lesson about not encouraging suicide over the internet. I promise if you kill yourself I will never do it again.
