More Street Action Down Under

As we reported last night, Reclaim Australia and other “far-right” organizations staged an anti-Islamization demo in Melbourne yesterday. The demonstrators were violently attacked by “anti-racist” counter-demonstrators, and a massive police intervention was required to separate the two groups.

Additional demonstrations by Reclaim Australia occurred today in other Australian cities, with the same predictable response by leftist counter-demonstrators. Vlad Tepes has tracked down a series of videos of these demos, and also produced a short annotated clip with his own commentary.

I notice that the pattern is the same in the “anti-racist” reaction to these anti-Islamization demos as it is in Europe:

1.   The counter-demonstrators significantly outnumber the demonstrators.
2.   They are well-organized, and most carry professionally printed signs and banners, in contrast to the homemade signs carried by the Islam-critics.
3.   They are far more likely to be masked than their targets are.
4.   In all instances in which it can be definitively determined, the “anti-racists” strike the first blow in any violent encounter with the anti-Islamic protesters.
5.   Media coverage bends over backwards to be equivocal about “both sides”. Reporters and anchors often tip towards favoring the counterdemonstrators, giving them more close-ups and positive sound bites.

Below are some of the videos that Vlad turned up.

  1. The fact that the aggressive communist demonstrators show every sign of having much better funding leads to the conclusion that one should follow the money if they want to know what’s really going on here.

    Is anyone in Australia tracking down the funding sources of these groups? That’s an article I’d be interested in reading about. Everything else regarding the propaganda tactics from the press, the violent behavior, etc, is the standard pattern and nothing new.

    What would be new is to know where these people get their money from, and whether they’re actually getting pay checks the way various Baltimore, Ferguson, and Seattle “protesters” have. Certainly the members of the press are getting pay checks. I wonder who owns them?

    • Who is Soros’ counterpart in OZ?

      Does he even need one?

      Abbott is already dismantling the green blob. Perhaps he needs to take on a new project.

      • I don’t think everything can be blamed on Soros any more than everything can be blamed on the Koch brothers.

        I’m quite sure that there are others who are interested in rent seeking and regulatory capture who would spend money on agitators who will indirectly help to facilitate those activities.

        • I used to provide articles to Australian Conservative blog. Sometimes the owner of the blog would also post certain other articles from other countries that had relevance to this country. One article by Cliff Kincaid exposed the ‘donations’ to Getup! Blog and Socialist Alliance – both far Left Australian groups – by one George Soros.

          I cannot remember what other ‘groups’ Soros was donating to in this country, however I do remember that the Australian Conservative blog owner was threated with legal action if he did not take Kincaid’s article down – which he promptly did.

    • I am a former Australian journalist. The members of the press in Australia are 99 per cent left-wing/’progressive’. The media proprietors, including Murdoch, do not try to control the newsrooms as they are uninterested as long as the product sells and afraid of prompting union action (Australian journalists are highly unionised).

      • They might not directly try to control content, at least most of the time (there are some documented cases of specific things being censored from the top), but if 99% of journalists hired are leftists then something is going on.

  2. I went to Melbourne in March 2014 for the SION event featuring Robt. Spencer and Pam Geller. It was a fine event. The organisers only texted or emailed out the addresses of where meetings would be held a few hours before each event due to security issues. The one event I didn’t make was a social at a pub the first evening. This event was attacked by our “anti-fascist” friends here. I chatted with people about it over the next couple of days. One guy I talked to said he became aware of a group of “misunderstanders of the peaceful teachings of Chairman Mao” breaking into the event when he saw a scrum of blokes trying to hold back a line of peaceful anti-racists attempting to break into the area and beat people up – there were women among our group.

    He noticed the lines were moving the wrong way and went over to help push them back. The groups moved back into a broader area where he found himself pushing a much younger man – a Uni student, my mate was a retiree. This could have been a problem if not that my mate had a Black Belt. He “helped” the younger man down the stairs behind him. Only to see him bend down, get something out of his backpack and come back up. It was a short wooden pole with a metal tip. My mate managed to pin the misguided young man down with it until help arrived and the guy was once more “helped” down the stairs.

    Outside the peaceful followers of the peaceful teachings of Marx, Lenin & Molotov were handing out leaflets that called us racists & Fascists. They held banners saying similar. The leaflets said in essence: “You say say you’re opposed to Sharia law but we know that you’re really racists!” Honestly. It was as if they had no ability to read or question, let alone have the ability to display powers of reason. The very things we were being criticised for they were guilty of. (Personally, I am used to this, as an Evangelical Christian in the West I have been called a pre-scientific knuckle-dragger without the ability to think for myself for over 30 years, and no it doesn’t matter how many degrees I might have collected. So the irony wasn’t lost on me). Naturally there was very little if any MSM coverage of this.

    As for the remainder of the event, I felt extremely safe. There were several ex-soldiers recently returned from active duty in Islamic garden spots in our group. Their stories were also interesting to listen to…

    But look at these poor kids. Willing to beat hell out of anyone they believe is violent and willing to shout down anyone they think is intolerant. All the while completely convinced that their attitudes are righteous. I foresee a bright future in teaching & government jobs for them all.

    • Lliam , thanks for your precis of the pub gathering with Ms Geller and Mr Spencer . Sadly i missed hearing them speak in March ’14 .Unlike the UK , we can be grateful that at least they were allowed to enter the country with intention of speaking at closed gatherings . Barnett , the wimp Premier cum sharia compliant toady , i recall did deny Geller and Spencer a public venue in Perth .

  3. Young Aussies have been just as infected by the left-wing intelligentsia as anywhere else in the Western world. The Left-wing Mafia is well-funded and, as is clear from their idols in the USA, the Obamas and the Clintons, they are expert racketeers and corrupt as a basket of worm-filled apples. Race-baiting is their favorite weapon to silence rational discourse in a cloud of stink emanating from their backsides.

  4. Our nations’ leaders massively import hostile, ISIS supporters, sharia-loving Muslims whose goal is our cruel conquest instead of rescuing and importing our severely persecuted brothers and sisters! Take them into your BIG country, Australia!

    South Africa is at Stage 6 – Preparation to MASS GENOCIDE WHITE SOUTH AFRICANS.
    It appears that South Africa is about the most dangerous place you can be outside a war zone. according to the human-rights organization Genocide Watch, South Africa is at pre-genocide stage 6 of 8: “Preparation.”

    In 2010, a prominent member of the African National Congress named Julius Malema revived an old anti-apartheid song whose lyrics — says Genocide Watch — call for genocide: “Shoot the Boer, shoot, shoot.” “Boer” means “farmer” in Afrikaans; colloquially, it means “white South African.”

    President Zuma sang the genocide song himself, leading a crowd in a musical chant: “We are going to shoot them with machine guns, they are going to run . . . The cabinet will shoot them, with the machine gun . . . Shoot the Boer, we are going to hit them, they are going to run.”

    Watch the video on YouTube — it is surreal. Nelson Mandela’s successor, the president of South Africa, addresses a crowd of — according to the Guardian — tens of thousands, in a giant stadium, and calls for the murder of what amounts to about 10 percent of his constituents. Among the audience, uniformed members of the military dance.


    Our white Christian brothers and sisters must be allowed to escape from the demonic savages!

  5. So unutterably useless these demonstrations are, everyone screaming, yelling, punching and kicking–achieving absolutely nothing.
    Obviously it would be better if sanity prevailed and people could speak to each other and present their views, though if demonstrations here in North America are anything to go by then that would be impossible due to the fact that the leftist/muslim Nazi/west-hating/’anti-racist’ mobs have obviously been told to close their ears and shout down everything the patriots try to say.
    That any Australian could hold up a sign saying: “muslims are welcome–racism is not” just beggars belief; muslims are, have always been, and will always be the enemy–their terrorism manual aka the koran demands it.


    SIGN PETITION Our Christian brothers and sisters in South Africa face GENOCIDE !

    “Many white South Africans who try to apply for citizenship to European countries such as the Netherlands and UK are rejected. Many of these white South Africans seeking citizenship are direct descendants of the very same European nations that reject them.

    The white South African population currently faces ethnic cleansing and persecutions at the hands of the ANC government, the EFF, and various individual anti-white aggressors.

    Over 4000 white farmers have been brutally murdered, often including torture and rape and mutilation.

    Many white South Africans today live in poverty and squalor as a consequence of the ANC government’s Black Economic Empowerment policy which shuts whites out of the labour pool….” SIGN PETITION!

    Every single day and night is spent in terror and fear for white South African Christians and white Christians in Zimbabwe and Namibia.

    Whites are raped and put to death with extreme barbarism by blacks for the sole reason the victims are white.

    The cruel, rabidly anti-Christian EU and British and European leaders colonised our nations with Muslims and black Muslims who are NOT persecuted whilst DENYING persecuted Christians entry into our nations. There are now over 50 million hostile Muslims in Europe who seek our cruel conquest and enslavement under barbaric sharia law.

    We should all be in the streets protesting.
