Anzacs behaving badly: Historically, McIntyre is not all that far off the mark

Historically speaking then, McIntyre is not all that far off the mark, but he has been sacrificed on the altar of populist outrage. The response to McIntyre’s tweets is a demonstration that the popular perception of Anzac is completely out of step with the historical reality – but his remarks are also timely. We should not forget that war is never a one-sided affair in which our boys are squeaky-clean heroes and their boys murdering, raping villains.


Evidently the ANZACs died for free speech, except at SBS

McIntyre was telling his version of the truth, a version much closer to reality than the war porn about ANZAC Day the Australian ruling class has force fed us over the last week. Sacking McIntyre explodes the lies of the ruling class that our participation in this imperialist war was about defending freedom and democracy then and now.
