Dennis [MacThomas] : ‘I’m An Australian Lord Haw-Haw’

Dennis [MacThomas] is batshit ace. [Derrick McCormack doesn’t like immigrants either.]

[Dennis McCormack is] A former member of the now-defunct group ‘Australians Against Further Immigration’ (on whose behalf he contested the Bonython by-election in 1994 and the Victorian Senate in the 1996 Federal election), then a member of Graeme Campbell’s staff (Campbell being the founder of the ‘Australia First Party’), [Derrick MacThomas] is […] Internet broadcasting on behalf of the US-based nutzi groupuscule the ‘National Socialist Movement’. His hour-long show is titled ‘Australia Calling’, and recalls the wartime broadcasts of William Joyce, aka ‘Lord Haw-Haw’:

Lord Haw-Haw was the name British listeners gave to William Joyce, a German radio propaganda broadcaster during World War II. Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1906, Joyce moved with his English mother and Irish-American father to England in 1921. He joined the Nazi movement in England in the mid-’30s and fled to Germany just before war broke in 1939. He immediately became a broadcaster for Joseph Goebbel’s Propaganda Ministry. His radio program reached England weekly from 1939 to 1945.

On the night of April 30, 1945, a drunken Joyce made his last broadcast from Hamburg as British troops entered the city. With his adopted world crashing down around him, but still committed to the Nazi cause, Joyce rambled on through his farewell speech. In Berlin, Hitler was simultaneously saying good-bye to his entourage in anticipation of ending his life a few hours later.

Captured by the British, Joyce stood trial for treason. The court denied his claim of American citizenship because he held a British passport. He was found guilty and hanged on January 3, 1946.

Apart from being hung (after a controversial trial), Lord Haw-Haw’s other enduring legacy is the term ‘Rats of Tobruk’:

The year 1941 was a dark one for the Allies. The Germans conquered all before them but Tobruk held out against Rommel and stood in the way of his advance towards Egypt and the Suez Canal. The defiance of the defenders of Tobruk raised morale in the countries of the British Empire and Commonwealth. Those who served there became known as the ‘Rats of Tobruk’, so-called because the German radio propaganda broadcaster ‘Lord Haw Haw’ described them as rats living in the ground.

Having survived WWII, the Rats are almost all gone now: of approximately 15,000 Rats, in June 2008, “about 1600 Rats were still alive, including about 80 in Victoria” (Rats of Tobruk may get permanent memorial, Jason Dowling, The Age, June 17, 2008). On a rockin’ side-note:

The music video for “It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock ‘n’ Roll)”, was filmed on 23 February 1976 for the Australian music television program Countdown. It featured the band’s then-current lineup, along with members of the Rats of Tobruk Pipe Band, on the back of a flat-bed truck traveling on Swanston Street in Melbourne, Australia. The Young brothers, Evans, Rudd and the Rats of Tobruk Pipe Band all mimed playing their instruments, while Scott mimed his vocal and bagpipes. Known members of the Rats of Tobruk Pipe Band at the time of the video’s filming include: Alan Butterworth, Les Kenfield and Kevin Conlon. The video was dubbed with the studio track from the T.N.T. album.

[MacThomas]’s first broadcast was made on May 25, 2006. (The NSM also broadcasts ‘Nazi America’.) Among the many highlights of his show, an interview with Ben Weerheym (former ANM/ANWU member) is one (January 8, 2007); the hugely successful Great Australian Bikini March (December 10, 2006) is another. The muzak of the Taswegian anti-Semite ‘Morbicae’ (‘Chris Gard’) — who joined SF in November 2005 — features in a number of shows (for example, May 6, 2007); on May 28, 2007, “We discuss the biggest event on Australia’s White calendar–the Sydney Forum on August 25th and 26th–Be there!”); on August 1, 2007, Derrick notes that “The self-proclaimed white nationalist leader in Western Australia, David Innes, has been accused of handing information about white patriots to the Marxist organisation Fight Dem Back” (David’s brother Paul Innes, who could never be accused of passing info on to FDB!, has now taken over the reins of SFDU); and Derrick even conducts an interview with Dr, James Saleam’s Sydney-based nemesis (and former member of the ‘White Pride Coalition of Australia’ (WPCA)) Daevid Palmer (August 20, 2007).

More recent broadcasts include:


(November 27, 2007) On Saturday 55 per cent of the Australian public voted for the Fabian Socialist Labor Party and its leader Kevin Rudd, who is married to a Jew, whose daughter is married to a Chinese and whose brother is married to a negro. Are you ready to fight yet, white man?


(January 13, 2009) Derrick interviews Australia First political party leader Dr James Saleam about Zionist infiltration of white organisations. Also, two cases of Muslim immigrants pack raping white girls . . . again. Seems to be a culturally acceptable team sport for Muslim men and boys.


(May 16, 2009) Telling the truth and speaking your mind are illegal in Australia and you will go to prison for it. During this past week a prominent Adelaide historian has been sentenced to three months in prison because he said that the Holocaust was a lie. In Perth, a fundamentalist Christian has been charged with a thought crime because he quoted the Jewish scriptures that taught race hate and murder. He faces 14 years in prison for quoting scripture. Australia. Perfect one day, a gulag the next.


(July 17, 2009) Marxist terrorists, believed to be associated with the Jewish front race mixing group Fight Dem Back, have attacked the headquarters of the Australia First political party in Sydney. Also, the latest on the plight of our American white brother Hal Turner.

Note: Hal Turner, like Dennis, is batshit ace. He is certainly not an FBI informant either.

Hal Turner’s Connecticut Case transferred
Hudson Reporter
July 19, 2009

Harold ‘Hal’ Turner, a North Bergen-based white supremacist and hate blogger who has gained recent notoriety for allegedly urging his followers to take up arms against law makers, was not present at his most recent Connecticut court hearing last week.

According to his Connecticut lawyer, Matthew Potter, Turner was not present in court because he is still being held on federal charges in Chicago. Turner had posted names, photos, and addresses of two U.S. District judges in Chicago after they refused to appeal a local law that banned gun ownership in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Potter said that Turner’s case was transferred from “Part B” of the Connecticut Superior Court’s division, to “Part A,” where more serious matters are heard.

Potter said that Turner is due back in court on Aug. 4.

On a much brighter, whiter note, everyone’s favourite US nutzi Bill White — former fuehrer of the NSM, then the ‘American National Socialist Workers Party’ — is a very rude boy outta jail, after a US judge ruled that his nutzi rants were protected by the First Amendment.

Charge against Roanoke neo-Nazi leader Bill White dismissed

Long known for dancing along the line between free speech and illegal threats, Roanoke neo-Nazi leader William A. White has won the first round of his bout with the federal government.

In an opinion issued Tuesday in Chicago, U.S. District Court Judge Lynn Adelman dismissed a charge that White used his Web site to encourage violence, ruling that his actions were protected by the First Amendment.

White had been charged with posting the name, address and telephone number of the foreman of a Chicago jury that convicted a fellow white supremacist in 2004.

Although the post made no direct threats against the juror, federal prosecutors had argued that White published the information with the hope it would prompt readers of his racist Web site,, to threaten or harm the man. In an attempt to prove that intent, authorities filled the indictment against White with examples of other, more hateful and inflammatory posts.

But White broke no laws in obtaining information about the juror, Adelman wrote in a 35-page opinion. As for using passages from to interpret White’s motives, “an intimidating context alone does not remove the protection of the First Amendment,” the judge ruled…
