KKK is the Australian Way?!?

THE Australia First Party has defended its sale of merchandise featuring Ku Klux Klan symbols and its association with a group headed by an American neo-Nazi leader facing child pornography charges.

The AFP is supporting a campaign by independent candidate and party member John Moffat in the southern Sydney seat of Cronulla in next month’s NSW election.

The AFP website shows the party is selling T-shirts displaying the Celtic Cross with the words, “Our Race Is Our Nation”.

The cross and the slogan have long been identified with the Ku Klux Klan.

Mr Moffat has based his campaign for the election on what he describes as a “civil uprising of the Australian people” — the December 2005 riots at Cronulla.

Anti-racism campaigner Cam Smith said Mr Moffat should disassociate himself and the AFP from the KKK.

“The use of this slogan and symbol makes it clear the first loyalty of these people is to their race, not to Australia,” Mr Smith said.

But Mr Moffat yesterday said he was not concerned about the association of the slogan and symbol with the KKK. “A lot of people are using that slogan these days,” Mr Moffat said. “It represents what we stand for.”

The Australian reported last month that Mr Moffat had posted messages attacking Muslims on the extremist right-wing National Vanguard website.

National Vanguard leader Kevin Strom has appeared before a court in West Virginia on child pornography and witness tampering charges.

Since Dec. 22, 2006, three white supremacist leaders have been arrested on sex-related charges. Two of them — Matthew Downing, National Vanguard’s Boston unit leader, and Gordon Young, former leader of the World Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and current member of the National Socialist Movement — have been charged with sexually assaulting minors. The third, Kevin Alfred Strom, founder of the National Vanguard organization, has been charged with possession of child pornography and witness tampering…

    Ah, another u-beaut hack job by Roberts. And since John Moffat is an indy, he can say and do whatever he pleases — http://johnmoffat.blogspot.com

    Many people do not know that the term “Nazi” means “National Socialist German Workers’ Party” and that members of the horrid group did not call themselves Nazis, but called themselves socialists. They also did not use the F-word as a self-description.

    The “Nazi salute” is more accurately called the “American salute” as it was created and popularized by national socialists in the USA where its use was mandated by law in government schools for three decades before, and through, the creation of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. It was the early gesture of the Pledge of Allegiance.

    The original pledge was anti libertarian and began with a military salute that then stretched out toward the flag. In actual use, the second part of the gesture was performed with a straight arm and palm down by children casually performing the forced ritual chanting. Due to the way that both gestures were used sequentially in the pledge, the military salute led to the Nazi salute. The Nazi salute is an extended military salute via the USA’s pledge.

    The Pledge’s early salute caused quite a Fuhrer/furor. The dogma behind the Pledge was the same dogma that led to the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): 62 million slaughtered under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; 49 million under the Peoples’ Republic of China; 21 million under the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. It was the worst slaughter of humanity ever.

    The USA originated Nazism, Nazi salutes, flag fetishism, robotic group-chanting to flags, and the modern swastika symbol as S symbolism for “socialism,” all shown in the research of the noted historian Dr. Rex Curry. The bizarre acts in the USA began as early as 1875 and continued through the creation of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (German Nazis or NSGWP). American soldiers used the swastika symbol in WWI (against Germany) and perhaps as late as 1941. The NSGWP had clear roots in National Socialism promoted by socialists in the USA. Amazing graphic images that prove the point are at

    The USA is still the worst example in the world of bizarre laws that require collective robotic chanting to a national flag in government schools (socialist schools) every day for 12 years. It has changed generations of Americans from libertarians to authoritarians. The government bamboozled individuals into believing that collective robotic chanting in government schools is a beautiful expression of freedom.

    Are we to assume from Darrin’s comment – oh no, he’s just an independent – that Australia First is abandoning it’s candidate to the wolves?

  4. Darrin Hodges says:

    Not at all Cam, since John Moffat is an independ[e]nt he is not actually an Australia First Party candidate. Australia First are sponsoring him as an independ[e]nt and therefore [he] has the support of the Australia First Party for this campaign.

    Btw, just who are the wolves?

  5. Dr. Cam says:

    Moffat is an independent in name only (due to your not being a registered party.)

    He identifies as an AF candidate, AF identifies him as their candidate. You and your wacky word games, Dazz.

    And if you don\’t know who the wolves are I don\’t much like your chances in this political thing. Ask Jim or Skull if you can borrow their copy of None Dare Call It Conspiracy. That should clear things up.

  6. Darrin Hodges says:

    This online spell checker is cool, but does that [he] really need to be there? Just wondering.

    Yeah, this political thing, ya know?

    I don\’t know what None Dare Call It Conspiracy is, but I will find something else to do if Skull turns up anywhere again. Nothing personal of course, it just isn\’t a good look.

    Btw @ndy, this new validation gizmo sucks arse.

  7. @ndy says:


    Darrin. It’s either that, or torrents of spam. So, unless you can be more precise in your complaint inre the arse-sucking spamfilter…

    Cam. That’s *its* candidate — no apostrophe.

    Tinny. Man… that’s some weird shit. I sure ain’t heard Blavatsky’s name in a while… None Dare Call It Theosophy! As for the rest… ah, while it may be true that many people do not know that the term ‘Nazi’ refers to the ‘National Socialist German Workers’ Party’ (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei), I do. Further, many Nazis were happy to call themselves Nazis…

    This is odd. Isn’t KKK exclusively American? Why would we whinge about black people in Australia? The only ones are Sudanese and they’re no big deal, and the British pretty much wiped out the Aborigines.

  9. @ndy says:

    “Isn’t KKK exclusively American?” No. The KKK has its origins in the US, but branches have been established elsewhere, including Australia. Also, there are a number of Klans, and they hate Jews as well as blacks. (And there are several hundred thousand Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders in Australia.)
