Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)



Is Reclaim (white) Australia the mirror image of ISIS?

From The Shovel

Yesterday at our rally in Canberra against racism and for Muslims, I saw the potential front-line face of fascism in Australia. (Christopher Knauss, ‘Rival protesters clash in fiery exchanges’ The Canberra Times Monday November 23, page 4.)

Wrapped in the Australian flag, chanting Aussie Aussie Aussie, oi, oi, oi and sprouting hateful lies and abuse against Muslims and anti-fascists and anti-racists like me, and wanting to undertake physical action against its perceived enemies, these white nationalist Reclaim Australia people, mainly alienated middle aged and young men, are a potential lumpen proletariat wing of fascism. It made me realise why some alienated young men might also join or support Reclaim’s alter ego and mirror image, ISIS.

The personal abuse some of the reclaim white Australia people gave me after their rally finished and I was walking alone back from the United Voice union celebrations nearby to the anti-reclaim rally was obviously intended to frighten me. It didn’t. It also didn’t appear to frighten the older woman of Chinese appearance walking near me, who asked for a copy of Solidarity magazine in response to a tirade of foul and vile abuse from one of the racists aimed at me.

Others, especially Muslims, and Muslim women with head covers, as Diane pointed out at the rally, wearing one herself,  however will be frightened by this filth and their campaign of hate and the abuse and physical violence it provokes.  It is why our counter rallies are so important.

In the comments, Tom accuses me of being pro-ISIS. There is no evidence for this lie. Objectively the Reclaim White Australia racists may well be the best recruiters for their brother haters in ISIS. This cartoon captures it:



Roxley Foley from the tent embassy captures the best response to these racists.  This is from an earlier protest when Roxley sat on one of the memorial stones outside Parliament House and the Reclaim White Australia people held their rally around him.

Hey John, you got a mention in the Canberra Times.

Although, I thought they could have been more accurate with their reporting.

It really should have read “John Passant, of the Pro-ISIS Solidarity Canberra group, told protesters that it was fantastic that so many had turned up to take a stand against the racism of Reclaim, and support ISIS.”

Pro-ISIS? There is not one shred of evidence for your lie. Not one. Do try and join the world of the thinking than be part of the cesspit of ignorance and fear. An impossible task for you and your reclaim white Australia ilk I know.

ISIS is financed by many nations. How is it possible for the oil they’ve stolen to be sold on the international market with the surveillance powers we are all now under? The principal suspects Saudi Arabia, Israel, Turkey, USA and GB.

There is a huge economic collapse about to happen and ISIS is the tool by which our rights will be removed so we don’t protest too much.

This is real evidence that we are in a serious global economic collapse.

The Baltic Dry Index is the measurement of container movements around the planet, not the creation of fiat debt money illegally counterfeited by the criminal banking system.

Container rates have dropped 70% in 3 weeks because ordinary people do not have the money to buy junk from China. The lunatics are in charge of the asylum.
