Marx on divide and rule

The roots of Hansonism

Pauline Hanson is one expression of the 30 years of state Islamophobia, racism, locking up refugees, the Northern Territory intervention etc etc. We need to fight Hanson AND the Labor and Liberal policies that create the cesspit in which she and all the others like her can and do live. We need to build a mass movement.

Ban bigots, not Muslims

A mass movement can force the racist scum back under their rocks for now.

State racism and Hanson’s resurrection

I wrote in Independent Australia on Monday that Hanson’s resurgence combined with a Coalition Government and a renewed racialised right in the Reclaim Australia movement, signal dangerous times for Australian politics.

Facebook bans Aboriginal woman: Donald Trump writ small

Facebook’s ‘community standards’ are the ‘standards’ of rich white men who find women’s bodies offensive if they aren’t titillating them. The power Facebook has is overwhelming. This abuse of its power reflects the dominant ruling class paradigms of misogyny, racism and sexism. Facebook’s decision to censor a photo of traditional Aboriginal women and ban Celeste Liddle is Donald Trump writ small. Where is our Chicago in response?

The article on the Paul Sheehan affair the Sydney Morning Herald, the Age and the Canberra Time have so far refused to publish

At 8.46 am on Tuesday 1 March I sent the article below to the opinion editors at The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and the Canberra Times. It is about the Paul Sheehan affair and his repetition of lies from Louise about a rape in Sydney she blamed on Middle Eastern men. It was untrue. I got an automated response for the SMH and the Age saying they received lots of submissions and if they hadn’t got back to me in a few days consider it rejected. (My words.) Sixty hours later and not one of the opinion editors has got back to me about what I thought was an OK article highlighting the liberal racism of the Fairfax newspapers. Here is what I sent them. It is an edited down version of an earlier article on my blog. I just can’t for the life of me figure out why they won’t publish it, can you?

Racism in Australia: how we can fight it – Canberra Solidarity meeting this Thursday

The government’s cruel refugee policies help to spread lies and xenophobia. The recent campaign to “Let them Stay”—over the government’s threat to deport 267 refugees—has shown that ordinary people will stand up against racist policy. Come to this Solidarity meeting in Canberra on Thursday to discuss how we can best fight together against racism in Australia. […]

A question to readers of Fairfax media – has the Sheehan finally worn off?

Australia’s mainstream media is a bit like Australia’s politics. It gives the impression of difference but in reality the two major newspaper outlets – News and Fairfax – disagree only on the detail. They agree on the overriding message and practice of neoliberalism and austerity. They agree too on creating a distraction from austerity. For Fairfax disguised and now not so disguised Islamophobia and liberal racism are good ways to do that.
