Alan (“F*ck*ng”) Jones ~versus~ Multicultural Plots To Destroy Straya

Today I was informed by the ‘Australian Protectionist Party’ that The Parrot (aka allegedly corrupt right-wing Sydney shock-jock Alan Jones) had a very special guest on his program, a Yanqui by the name of Richard Lamm. Lamm came to prominence several years ago when he gave a speech denouncing multiculturalism.

Reading of Jones’s recycling of an old meme — one that has been spreading via email and on various racist and right-wing Internet forums for many years now — naturally brought to mind not only Nation of Ulysses but sparked memories of Chopper, and a seminal moment in Australian television history involving Mister Jones and Mister Read.

Which, in turn, brought me to several other videos (one courtesy of MH). These I think further encapsulate Alan’s contribution to public debate in this sunburned country and as such are worthy of further reflection.

Who the fuck’s Huey Lewis?

Bonus Independence!

About @ndy

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I like anarchy. I don't like nazis. I enjoy eating pizza and drinking beer. I barrack for the greatest football team on Earth: Collingwood Magpies. The 2021 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.

    I’m all up for highlighting the guy’s hypocrisy and general douchebaggery but I don’t see point of dropping the London arrest into the mix. Homophobic laws. Thatcherite Britain. Unless I’m missing something?

    Yeah. It was a Great Moment in Australian TV and as Chopper says, people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Jones is an incredibly sanctimonious person.
