- Update : Terrible news for Terrie-Anne: Indian media have picked up on her racist diatribes, presumably further confirming in the minds of the Indian public(s) — and despite PM KRudd’s assurances to the contrary — that ‘Australia’ — and moreover ‘Australians’ — are, well, kinda racist. Terrie-Anne “was reported to have written extremely rude comments about the recently attacked Indian students in Australia, saying that attacked Indian students were “playing the victim card” and the “shit around their head must do something to their brain”. “Maybe a gun to their head might help them get the hint that they are not wanted here!”, Verney reportedly wrote on one of her Facebook groups.”
NB. “Terrie-Anne Verney is the Sales Manager for 95.1 FM. Contact her today to see exactly what Community Radio can do for you!”
Once there were keyboard warriors — over 60,000 of them — belonging to ‘The Facebook Special Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics’, aka ‘Fuck Off We’re Full’. Sadly, it was subverted by Un-Australian forces, and so a new group was established, with a very similar name, but this time under the careful stewardship of ‘Australian Protectionist Party’ spokesperson Darrin Hodges and his leading lady Terrie-Anne Verney: Terrie-Anne has a position @ ‘multi-cultural’ community radio station Griffith FM. Further:
I have been writing for many years, and am currently studying journalism.
I write regular newsletter articles for community organisations, and write advertising copy.
I work in broadcasting, at a not for profit radio station, where I am the sales manager/office assistant.
I have varied intrests [sic] and general knowledge in many fields.
I am an accurate typer [sic] and very efficent [sic], with Australian English being my native language.
Some very obvious questions occur at this point:
1. Is Griffith too full of immigrants?
2. Should immigrants thinking of moving to Griffith simply “fuck off” as Terri-Anne recommends?
3. Are all the KKK members Terrie-Anne claims to have met as “intelligent” as those who wear bedsheets and burn crosses on other people’s front lawns?
4. Does the “shit” which Indian students wrap around their heads really damage their mental functioning, as Terrie-Anne argues?
Terrie-Anne is on the air in Griffith every Saturday. This week’s guest is a Canberra mom named Nicole Hanley.
Should be a rip-snorter I reckon.
Multicultural radio presenter linked to anti-immigration Facebook groups
July 2, 2009
A presenter for a NSW community radio station that specialises in multicultural programming has been reprimanded after she was revealed to be an administrator of several racist, anti-immigration groups on Facebook.
Terrie-Anne Verney, a presenter and sales representative for Griffith FM radio station 2MIA, was the administrator of the group “F— Off, We’re Full” and had also joined several Facebook groups including “Stop the Islamisation of Australia while we still can”, “Australian Conservative United Party”, the “Australian Protectionist Party” and “Australians against Multiculturalism”.
In posts on the site she ridiculed foreigners who did not have a good grasp of English, claimed the Islamic faith was destroying the Australian way of life and said that attacked Indian students should go back home to study.
She also wrote that groups of immigrants tended to develop a “mob mentality”, claimed KKK members she knew were “intelligent” and that she did not want immigrants who did not speak English or assimilate into “the Australian life” to be allowed into the country.
“If we allow the Islamic faith to continue to grow, sooner or later the Australian way of life will be destroyed,” Ms Verney wrote in one post.
“I can’t even imagine where we start to fix the problems caused by the introduction of this *cough cough* religion and its invasion of our society, but something needs to be done. Before its (sic) too late.”
Of bashed Indian students, she said they were “playing the victim card” and “the shit around their head must do something to their brain”.
“Maybe a gun to their head might help them get the hint that they are not wanted here!!,” she wrote.
Edna Wakley, president of the Griffith Community FM Association and station manager at 2MIA, said in a statement that she was “horrified” by Ms Verney’s affiliations, and that she was unaware of until yesterday.
She said the station did “not condone in any way sites such as these” and would “take appropriate disciplinary action where necessary”.
2MIA prides itself on “multicultural programming” and has several presenters from diverse backgrounds. Ms Verney works there as a sales representative and also presents a music show on Saturday afternoons.
“It is disappointing that this staff member’s actions could place a cloud over the integrity of this Association and all that it has achieved in Ethnic Broadcasting, multiculturalism and the community at large,” the statement said.
When Ms Verney was approached for comment over her Facebook posts, she said it was “unfortunate” patriotism was now regarded as racism.
“As a proud Aussie, I welcome new Australians in the hope and belief that they too, become proud Aussies,” she said.
“This country is beautiful the way it is, and like most average citizens, [I] do not want our society to change to suit others’ needs.”
But after this website approached 2MIA for a comment yesterday, Ms Verney began removing some of her Facebook group affiliations and posts.
In April, a contractor for one of Australia’s largest Defence Department-linked companies was suspended after she was alleged to have been involved as an administrator of the neo-Nazi web forum Blood & Honour.
