How to insult a "progressive"

Flushing Out Racists Hiding As Progressives


The blog sometimes plunges into the open sewers of the Australian racist antizionist  left to confront the ignorant and gutless head on. Man to man so to speak. 

Or in the case of the low rent mob who populate New Matilda, man to sissy.

It's filthy work but really some one needs to do it. Otherwise some could get the idea that this crazy jarring antisemitic narrative has gone unnoticed and unchallenged.  

The leading site of the genre is New Matilda where this blog has been dropping comments for years. You can see for yourself how much they hate me. Naturally I wear this as a badge of honour. 

Take a look at this.

We Lost Another Reader, But At Least He 

Threatened To Sue Us First

By Chris Graham

New Matilda recently tightened up its commenting policy. Not everyone appreciates it. Chris Graham explains.
There’s a well-worn theory in the media that if both sides of a debate hate you, then you’re probably doing something right.
Last month, we banned reader ‘Kevin Charles Herbert’ from our site after he posted comments on a story which promoted Holocaust denial (NM has very strict rules on this… you can read them here).
Mr Herbert subsequently threatened to sue us for defamation… and you can read that romping tale, including the correspondence, here.
But that was way back in ‘May’. Now it’s ‘June’. And what month in independent media would be complete without another legal threat from another angry reader.
Introducing ‘Geofffff’, also known as ...., a regular and enthusiastic New Matilda commenter. Or at least he was.
‘Geoffff’ is well known on our site for taking on Holocaust deniers. That’s the part about him we like. In particular, he was an occasional sword crosser with Mr Herbert, and was particularly pleased when Mr Herbert’s account was deleted.
Which is why this next bit is so ridiculously ironic.
Last week, Geoffff accomplished the same feat after posting an abusive comment at the bottom of a Michael Brull article, in which he called our beloved columnist an “ignorant creep”, a “dickhead” and a “brain dead coward” (and yes, more irony, it was a Brull piece which provoked the response from Kevin Charles Herbert as well).

Yes. That's a transparent parody of the front page of our dear and much loved blog. Me too. The rude bastards.

Head Wanker
They deleted my account which means that every comment that I have ever made has also been deleted. This is something out of Einstein. Expunged from the pages of history, as it were, exactly what they keep on saying they want to do to Israel and the Jews. 

Ordinarily I would be annoyed by such rudeness and contempt for other people's property but this is New Matilda, we should not forget. 

Who cares if they delete your comments from the start.? All they are doing is proving your point.   Besides their readership is tiny and slipping. You can see how much advertising they attract. They depend on donations and subscriptions, probably stoked up by the Greens party, Australia's first populist fascist party since the New Guard of the thirties.

I'm  not going to waste too much breath on this but it will come as no surprise that everything Graham says is a lie. I did not edit a comment after it had been deleted. I did not threaten this sad little man with litigation after I was defamed and I certainly did not applaud the taking down of another commenter's account after this wanker accused him of being a Holocaust denier. (As if Graham would know one when he saw one. A startling feature of the modern left is how profoundly ignorant they are).

I do not regard calling out the racism of the left for what it is, abuse. This thing is far too serious for abuse. They call that abuse? That 's not abuse.

I've been called a Nazi, a Zionazi (numerous times) racist, again and again, Hassie? and other things too choice to mention in Graham's public boards without any demur from Graham (or for that matter me).

That's abuse.

Who cares?

That's the language of this debate. This is after all a cold war.

That's one thing. Nasty, malice driven defamation is something else.
Besides, like a sez you howling creepy little kid, Graham accuses me of defaming his resident antisemitic Jew. 

This is because he know nothing at all about antisemitism and the law of defamation. Nor do any of his comrades, it goes without saying. How could they be expected to? They are of the left and sucked in antisemitism with their mothers' milk.

How can you defame an antisemitic Jew?

This is  from the resident self hater complete with applause from the stoker in charge.

Michael Brull once said that to defend the human rights of women in Muslim lands and  condemn the abuse of women and girls;  mutilation, beatings, executions, slavery and honour murders in a forced second class somewhere between livestock and human beings, is "cultural imperialism" .

That one even made Elder of Zion.

Michael Brull's Media Recommendations For

 Everything You Need To Know About The 

Middle East

By Michael Brull

One of the nation’s most informed commentators on the Middle East, Michael Brull offers his insights into the ‘must reads’.
A lot of Australians don’t know much about the Middle East and don’t know how to learn more. I think there’s something to be said for deeper reading on the subject, to make sense of what’s happening today. But there are also media outlets and analysts worth reading, which offer news and insight, and below I review some I’d recommend to readers.
As a general source on the Middle East, I have long been a fan of the UK’s Independent. I think its reporters show an unusual level of independence and intelligence. It’s home to Robert Fisk, who won international acclaim for his reporting on the Middle East, particularly his work on the Lebanon Civil War, Pity the Nation. Sadly, Fisk seems to have declined as a reporter in recent years.
However, the Independent does have another singularly brilliant journalist on the Middle East: Patrick Cockburn. Cockburn has been reporting on Iraq with distinction since before the invasion began in 2003, and has also done excellent – in my view, the best – reporting on Syria since the uprising broke out there.
Rather than reciting the propaganda interests of this side or that, Cockburn consistently offers his own shrewd and insightful analysis. He began writing a book on the rise of ISIS before the West noticed its victories, and wound up publishing the first study on them in August 2014. For those who want to understand the rise of ISIS, it is essential reading.
For more general news reporting on the Middle East, Al Monitor has reporters from a range of countries and backgrounds. The reporting quality can vary, but is a good resource, and has had some outstanding reporting and analysis.
For commentary and analysis on the Middle East for lay readers, Informed Comment is a great resource. Run by Middle East academic specialist Juan Cole, it often features guest commentary. It’s designed to be accessible to American readers who are not assumed to have a lot of background knowledge. Cole is a very intelligent and well informed analyst, with wide-ranging knowledge. He also speaks several languages, including Arabic and Persian. Politically, he is not a radical – he identifies as a liberal Democrat.

"Everything you need to know". 

Can you believe this? 

Literally thousands of books, histories, academic studies, personal eye witness  accounts and enough analysis  to sink  the Arc but as far as  Graham and Brull  are concerned, the fraction of one percent of this output put out by antizionist "scholars"  with a well trodden market is "everything you need to know". 


Nothing defines the antisemitic Stalinist  left better that one phrase.

Let's hear it again. Let it ring.

Everything you need to know. Brought  to you by the Australian left.

Did I mention they are a pack of wankers?

I'm pleased to report  they don't like that. Do go here if you want to tell them something .Then consider posting what you said here. 

You can be certain it will not be deleted.

Racism and the Antisemitic Left.


Image result for karl marx
Just Another Jewish Antisemite

You really do need to read this to get an idea of what is going down in the world. 

The Australian Left supports this ideology.  They overlook every evil in the world to pound this Jew bashing pinhole view of the planet with such force that you really do not have to think too hard about what we are seeing before our eyes.

We only need to understand how dangerous it is. 

Sooner or later this mongrel nazi mindset will have to be confronted head on. We all know where it starts.  None of us can say for sure how it ends. No more apologies for sleazy fascist racism in the guise of religion would be an excellent move right now.

No more excuses for sleazy fascist racism in the guise of reformist politics would be the perfect second step on the floor.

We need to be very clear about the Australian Left. We know who they are. Racists and antisemites to the core, especially the Jews.   It's a shameful thing to have to admit but it is an important thing that has to be said.

There is no worse racist than an antisemitic Jew.

Never mind climate change. This thing has the potential to blow us all sky high. 

Palestinian Cleric Pounds ‘Penis Ads’

Preacher says Israel and the Jews using ‘sex craze’ to crush Arabs, CIA spreading mind-control drugs in region

Illustrative image of size measurement.

A Palestinian cleric told television viewers that Israel has spread a “sex craze” around the world and that Jews, being interested only in material worth, place offensive advertisements for penis enlargement products in the media that “crush” the spirits of Arabs and Muslims.

Sheikh Imad Yaaqub Hamatu made the comments in a June 12 broadcast on Palestinian Authority TV. An English translation of parts of his televised sermon was provided by the Washington-based Middle East Media Research (MEMRI) Institute, a non-government media watchdog.

“The global media of Israel has expanded and it has launched its war against the Arab and Muslims by spreading the sex craze throughout the world,” Hamatu declared. “As I have said in a previous lesson, Israel has resorted to this sex craze in order to crush all types of spirit among the Arabs and the Muslims.

“Everything is dead among the Muslims except for their urges,” he lamented and then expanded on the subject. “That is why we have begun to see all sorts of abominations and shamelessness on many TV channels. We see ads for penis enlargement and for all sorts of things, which are shameful and offensive to one’s modesty. Why is this? Because as said in the Quran, the Jews are the people of matter, not of spirit.”

For Jews, “only material things have value,” Hamatu warned, and offered an interpretation of the Quran quote “you shall find them to be the people most eager to protect life”: “The Quran did not say ‘their life,’ just ‘life,’ life of any kind — life in the garbage, a life of cowardice… they [the Jews] only care about staying alive.”

“What has Israel contributed to the world except for moral corruption and addiction to pills?” he asked.

Hamatu also claimed that the CIA uses drugs to control the minds of people in the Middle East.

“In a previous lesson, I have said that there is a unit in the CIA, called the Unit for Controlling the Global Mood,” he said. “They look at the map and decide what (drug) is suitable for Gaza, Jordan, or Syria.”

“Perhaps Tramadol? Happy pills, maybe? Hallucinogens?” he pondered, revealing a certain familiarity with recreational narcotics. “They are produced in India, imported to Israel, and distributed here in the Sinai.”

What this guy said.


From a commenter at  New Matilda  Not sure if I agree with it all but that is because it is not my post. But it is a post worth spreading.

Posted Thursday, June 4, 2015 - 00:58
Let's start with some of the simple things.
Jews are not a race.
Correct. Jews are not a race. Jews are an ethnicity or a tribe if you will.
They have always been that, whether you believe it or not.
Furthermore, as Judeans they were a nation. And now as Israelis they are a nation again.
Arguing that because Jews exist in Australia that Israel is not a Jewish state is disingeniuous. 
Jews are a religion, not an ethnicity
Typical crap. 
Jews may have once been a religion only but they became a fairly distinc people, culture and movement. 
For 2000 years in exile they've been treated as a people. In fact, every single Soviet Jew born before 1991 has their nationality recorded as "Jew" in their birth certificate in Russian. I certainly do.
Hitler treated Jews as a people, not as a religion (that's why he killed people whose paternal grandfather was Jewish, but according to Jewish religious tradition that person is not a Jew) and the Holocaust was a transformative event in the Jewish psyche.
Jews stole Palestinian land
A correction would be that Palestinians as Arabs were merely the descendants of the Arab hordes who captured the Babylonian province of Yehud in the 7th Century, having come out of Hejaz.
And having never had sovereignty in any land as a distinc people the Palestinians have not had their sovereignty stolen or removed.
No other state is based on religion
Israel is not based on religion. There's not even an official state religion like there is in say Denmark whose constitution affirms the Lutheran Church as the State Church.
But if you want a state based on religion - how about the Vatican?
Or the state of Pakistan formed at roughly the same time as Israel for the specific purpose of being a Muslim state?
Israel has no right to exist
Every state has the right to exist. There is no provision in international law for a state to be disassembled.
The one state solution is the only solution
A funny conclusion... given that the right of Jewish self-determination is in no way less important than that of the Palestinians.
Israel wanting to be a Jewish state is a racist policy
Article 1 of the 2003 Draft Constitution of Palestine which is already a part of the Palestine Basic Law: Palestine is part of the large Arab World, and the Palestinian people are part of the Arab Nation. Arab Unity is an objective which the Palestinian People shall work to achieve
Basically it's saying Palestine is an Arab state. Yet you all fall over supporting an Arab state which has an official state religion of Islam (Article 4[1]).
Frankly, if you support the right of an ethnic Arab state to form called Palestine, you really shouldn't be complaining about an ethnic Jewish state called Israel.
Arab blood flows through a large amount of Jews in Israel
Nope. Under Ottoman and Arab law during the 1500 years Jews spent as dhimmis under Muslim rule, the law was that a Muslim could not marry a jew under millet laws unless the jew converted to Islam. 
And a Muslim woman could never ever marry a non-Muslim.
So a Muslim woman could not marry a Jewish man and convert for him - meaning no Jewish kids came out of that equation... and a Muslim man could marry a jewish woman who would need to convert, plus the kid would be registered as a Muslim regardless because his/her dad was Muslim - and any Jewish worship was apostasy.
Genetic studies have confirmed this - there's statistically insignificant admixture from Arabs into Jews who lived among them in places like the Maghreb.
Jewish people existed without the need for Israel for 2000 years
Sure. We existed.
Let's review what happened in the last 150 years... pogroms in Russia forcing 2 million Jews to flee at the end of the 1890s, several hundred thousand went to Palestine over a 20 year period and started preparing the state... the rest went to America.
In 1903 and in 1905 there were anti-Jewish riots in Kishenev which later became part of Moldova - tens of thousands of Jews left for Palestine.
In 1918 Polish Jews copped the Kielce Pogrom. 
In 1919, the Kiev Pogroms started... 3000 rapes, 500,000 left homeless, 70,000 killed. 200,000 left - most to America... about 50,000 to Palestine.
Then in 1934 there were the Thrace pogroms in Turkey at which time 15,000 Turkish Jews pissbolted to Palestine.
And then off course the Holocaust where one in every three Jews in the world was liquidated.
We existed. And that's about it. It was a pitiful existence.
Now there are nukes with the star of david on them. Ready to give the 7th Century to anyone who wants to live in it.
None of the Zionist Federation's early leaders were from the region
Not in the slightest bit surprising. Jews had largely been exiled from the Arab lands after many subsequent invasions.
The ratio of Ashkenazi to Sephardi Jews was about 10:1 or larger.
It's like being surprised that your typical average Australian is a white Anglo and not a dark-skinned Aboriginal holding a spear and performing a war dance.
Israel is based on religion.
I'm afraid that ain't true either.
Amazingly enough "jew" is an English word. Not a Hebrew/Aramaic word. 
The Hebrew word for "jew" is "Yehudi". Means "of Judea".
"Jew" in Arabic is "Yahood". So Arabs acknowledge Jews are from Judea - it's why they call them what Jews call themselves.
Romans came and called "Yehudi" the Roman form - "Iudeus" - means "of Iudea". Which is what they called Judea befre changing it to "Palestine" to break the Jewish link to it.
As Jews travelled through the Roman Empire, they came to Gaul (France) where "Iudeus" became "guid" (old French - pronounced ee-uid) and then eventually "gui". Iudea became "judee".
Eventually the Jews crossed the Channel and "gui" became "jew" and "judee" became "Judea".
So when you call someone a Jew - you are merely calling them "of Judea" - you are acknowledging the national origin of Jews - Judea.
And if you think this is all biblical, here are Roman coins minted to commemorate the capture of Judea (Iudea Capta)
And here are coins from the Babylonian province of Yehud prior to invasion by the Arabs:
Both these coin mintages predate Arab presence in the Levant.
And if you have $1.1m you can buy a Judean Shekel (same currency name as used by Israel today) from the year 66 C.E:
For some reason someone always posts something about Neturei Karta, as if having "true torah" jews proves something.
Jews as a people/tribe are not homogenous. We. like everyone else live on the same political spectrum and religious spectrum.
Some Jews are believers. Some jew, like me are atheists. Some jews are far right. Some jews are far left. Most are in the middle.
But here's the completely baffling thing...
Every time someone needs a "useful Jew", truetorahjews come out... which is funny because they're a millenarian cult within the religion that is classically religious-nationalist - IE when they decide that the Messiah has come, they are willing to condone genocide and armageddon to establish a Tanach-compliant Talmudic state of Israel.
Their beef with Israel is that it wasn't established by God. And hence their hatred is against Israeli secular structures and perceived anti-religious valies.
Align with them by all means, but they're the Jewish ISIS. They just lack the weapons and the twitter accounts. And they're no good with hacking heads off with swords...
It is illegal for states to recognize territories acquired by war/force
It is not. Australia committed no crime when we recognized Indonesian sovereignty over E. Timor in 1975.
The problem is talknic does not understand customary International Law.
See the Montevideo Convention is a treaty between 16 nations. Article 10 states "The primary interest of states is the conservation of peace. Differences of any nature which arise between them should be settled by recognized pacific methods."
Article 11 states "The contracting states definitely establish as the rule of their conduct the precise obligation not to recognize territorial acquisitions or special advantages which have been obtained by force whether this consists in the employment of arms, in threatening diplomatic representations, or in any other effective coercive measure."
The difference should be immediately obvious.
Article 10 is general, whereas Article 11 binds the contracting states - ie the 16 states who ratified the Convention.
So while it is certainly true that the generic rule is that states should not recognise captured territory, the only law against it binds 16 states only and of those states several have recognised captured territory as sovereign to the occupier. Such as the USA's recognition of German Kaliningrad being annexed by the Soviet Union.
In fact, the USA does not generally seem to hold itself bound by Montevideo because they keep introducing bills into Congress such as the one in January - that disallow Congress or the President to recognise the Russian annexation of Crimea - these bills would be useless if America was bound by international law from doing it.

Reasons To Advocate For Israel


1    Because  you are an Australian and by no means necessarily Jewish.

2    Because Israel is fighting our war.

 If the forces in the world aligned so emphatically against Israel were to succeed in overcoming her it would be catastrophic for the world not the least because it could have only been done by force.

A war anywhere is not good for people anywhere.

This would have been a catastrophic war. 

It would be a catastrophe for us.

That would be just the start of it.

Those who think of Israel in terms of South Africa and apartheid are badly and dangerously wrong. That way lies terrible war.

3     In the meantime just as bad is the chronic illness of anti-Israelism in the West and its corrosive effect on thought especially in the media, universities and increasingly among politicians.

This is our problem far more than it is the Israelis.

The "Nakba" was the fault of the Arab world, was no big deal anyway relative to what else was going on in the world in 1948 and  became a crime only when the Arab world herded the people into camps and subjected them to a savagely enforced apartheid that with the bottomless support of the UN and the West endures to this day.

It is indeed perhaps one of the worst crimes against a people since the war.

This is an enduring war crime against the refugees of 1948 in which the West was and is complicit. Help the people on the ground of course but  it had to be explicit that the people will be set free.

Why was it not? Why were they not?

Those with somewhere to go and can support themselves or who have support must be free to go anywhere including anywhere in the Arab world.

They must have full national and civil rights where they go especially if they are in the country they are born.

Basic. But that almost only ever happened in Israel, the US and the West.

What about the Arab and Muslim states who refused the Palestinians this human right?

What about that crime?

Freedom did not enter into the calculations of the body charged with the guardianship of human rights as it hasn't much ever since. Nor any others who are vocal about human rights. There has never been a campaign anywhere calling to let these people go.

That there has not been a movement and barely a voice to free these people is an example of the corrosive impact of anti-Israelist ideology on political thought in the West

Instead the UN created some new kind of citizenship in the form of a card which bestowed entitlements, an identity and a curse that can be passed on and split among the generations for eternity.

Now the refugees have become a people and the people demand recognition as a nation with a sovereign state.

OK. It wouldn't be the first time in history that refugees have become a people, a nation and a state.

But it would be the first time that a nation was brought forth by keeping a people with no particular national identity in a tightly laced straitjacket  that ensures a burning core grievance nurtured from birth against another nation for a crime that has been projected on to them by the true criminals who are all around them and within. A nation forged in hate and chains.  A nation forced to life by refusing human rights to the people. A state born not of freedom but of the card. 

That is the curse of the Palestinian people.

You cannot shake the queasy feeling that the UN and the world have been playing with the stuff of our souls and that will be delivered out of this is something new and nasty. A nation recognized without the "land for peace" and "mutual recognition" deals that are critical but are refused, refused still even to discuss, least of all with the nation that it has vowed to destroy and supersede.

So let us talk for the first time of the true Nakba of the Palestinian people to understand the nature of what we have done to them. The Nakba that started when the  Arab world, with unspeakable cruelty, turned their backs on them and with the aid of the West were turned into a subclass in the lands where they were born. A subclass with an ideology that demands hatred of a state and people wholly innocent of the crimes against them that they see every day.

We are expected to recognise a nation that is locked into a war that it cannot win and cannot withdraw from either, and by doing this we are anointing the curse that has been brought on these people.

This hurts the Palestinians far more than the Israelis and as our handiwork is likely to blow up in in our faces, it is as good a reason as any to advocate for Israel.

This has to stop. Not in our name.

The dilemma of "Palestine" is not our fault. It is not the fault of Israel. Let us be clear about whose fault it is. It could head off a disaster for all of us.

Crime Court Fiddling On The Roof


There's a new movie in the works.

It has already been awarded five stars and a Nobel Prize just for the trailer

Palestine has been recognised as sort of a state player by the International Criminal Court.

Hugely popular among the latte belligerensa because it means the Palestinians can get back at the Zionist criminals by lawful peaceful means.

So why now the sound of crickets chirping in the evening from the belligerent ones?  

Get on with it!

Demand action on Palestine over the Gaza atrocities. You were before. 

Prosecute the street filth clumps of war criminals.

Get them off the streets and throw their terrorist bosses backsides somewhere the sun don't shine at all.

Brussels sounds about right.

The future of international law is in the balance and that is not the only balance at stake.  Come on ICC activists. Restore law and order.

Of course there is no law if there is a double standard.

One forces the other out of the building like a broken sewer and that's not the worst of it. What's left in the building is the worst of it. 

Never mind the elephant in the room

A Jim Crow trial? A sharia tribunal? Star Chamber? Stalinist show trial? A Nazi court? A lynch mob? A Jake Lynch mob?

One law for you, another for them, whatever I can arrange for me; and whatever you choose to call the lurking hulk we have in the place instead needs putting down before it does more harm. 

So bring it on I say.

Let the process begin.

Launch the investigations.

On with the prosecutions.

Haul their sorry asses into court and let the cameras roll

Israel did not want that war and fought it quick and clean to get the filthy job done. No military in the world could have done better to avoid people in the way and few would have been as motivated.

Hamas hid behind women and children and used the corpses of kids they killed as propaganda. They did their best to kill as many as they could of the people they attacked without warning in a war declared  in the most vile way in history until then.  

Hamas set the standard for the Islamic State and they set it high.

Israel has nothing to fear.

Unless the process is a double standard and the wraith lurking in  the walls is just a Court of the Inquisition on the hunt for Jews.
