Crazy kids and their intarwebs.

The Southern Cross Soldiers (SCS) finally make it into the papers.

(See below.)

They’re just like real soldiers (only not quite as well paid).

“Friends, today was an historic day, the day Australians stood up against state-imposed multiculturalism,” Darrin Hodges wrote on the night of the Cronulla riots. Accompanying his posting is a series of photographs he took at Cronulla that day, including one of a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “wog free zone” and another of a sign offering free sausages to the crowd, with “no tabouli”. Darrin also speaks of footage he filmed on the day which [FightDemBack!] believes was used in a video released over the weekend that glorifies a mob of rioters bashing various non-whites at Cronulla.

In his article (Victorian police vow crackdown to stop ‘another Cronulla’) Liam makes reference to a Cronulla vid (Videos on [SCS] websites glorify the Cronulla riots to a neo-Nazi soundtrack promising “race war”), which is presumably a reference to the vid Australian Protectionist Party (APP) members Darrin Hodges and Martin Fletcher helped to produce and distribute on Stormfront in the riot’s immediate aftermath. Hodges & Co. maintain that the ‘riot’ was in fact a ‘White Civil Uprising’, an opening shot fired in a civil war in which their side seeks to return Australia to its natural status as a 100% White outpost in Asia. While Hodges & Co. are based in Sydney, at the same time, in Melbourne, another APP member, Luke Connors, in his then capacity as spokesperson for the now-defunct ‘Patriotik Yoof League’:

…predicted further outbreaks.

“‘When you have areas which are majority Muslim, because they don’t tend to adapt that well, or majority African or Middle Eastern extraction, and right next door you have an area which is 90 per cent Anglo-Saxon, or Anglo-Celtic, there is going to be friction,” he said.

“West Heidelberg is a big one because you have a very large black working-class community next to a white middle-working-class community. That would be my best guess actually if it was going to start up in Melbourne.

“Also, out past Springvale, along the train line, there is that same sort of segregation going on, in working-class areas where they are competing for the same jobs and there is a high unemployment rate.”

Now that’s cricket

Citizenship tests have a dark history in Australia, in the past used as an exclusionary canard during the White Australia Policy years. Citizenship tests could be administered in any language the examiner so chose, including Chinese. Knowledge of Australian sport is arguably even more arcane than Chinese to many migrants and thus was included by former Prime Minister John Howard as a cultural filter, to keep out migrants Howard and the Liberals didn’t like… but no more.

From The Sydney Morning Herald:

Bradman dropped from test

IT IS no longer necessary to know about sporting legends such as Sir Donald Bradman to become an Australian citizen.

In an overhaul of the citizenship test, the Federal Government has scrapped a pop quiz, which famously listed a question on the cricketing legend in a pool of possible questions, to instead focus on notions of civic duty.

The pass mark has been lifted to 75 per cent, from 60 per cent, and a book to help people prepare for the test will be rewritten in plain English and separated into two parts, only one of which will be tested.

“The new test will focus on the commitments in the pledge rather than being a general knowledge quiz about Australia,” the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Chris Evans, said yesterday.

Toben wins UK fight, Aussie fight remains

From The Australian:

Fredrik Toben wins UK fight over extradition to Germany
Peter Wilson, Europe correspondent
November 21, 2008

AUSTRALIAN Holocaust denier Fredrik Toben has won his legal battle with the German Government after it ended its attempt to extradite him from Britain.

German prosecutors have withdrawn their appeal against a British court’s refusal last month to extradite the controversial historian, who was detained at Heathrow airport on a European arrest warrant for denying the extent of Adolf Hitler’s crimes against the Jews.

Dr Toben’s solicitor Kevin Lowry-Mullins said early today that he had signed a consent order with the German Government to end the action against his client.

Pressure mounts to block white supremacist visa

From The Age:

PM urged to bar UK supremacist
Paul Austin
November 22, 2008

STATE Liberal leader Ted Baillieu is urging Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to block British white supremacist Nick Griffin from entering Australia.

Mr Griffin, head of the far-right British National Party, has applied for a visa to visit Australia next month to talk in Melbourne and Sydney on what he calls “the demographic genocide” caused by immigration from the Third World to developed countries.

Mr Baillieu has written to Mr Rudd and Immigration Minister Chris Evans warning that a tour by Mr Griffin would pose a threat to Victoria’s tradition of tolerance and diversity.

In the letter, Mr Baillieu says that Mr Griffin was convicted in 1998 of distributing material likely to incite racial hatred, and advocates “white supremacy”.

Aussie BNP members ‘not racist’

From The Sydney Morning Herald:

Leaked list outs Aussie fascist supporters

Australian residents outed as right-wing extremists on a leaked membership database for the controversial British National Party say they are unashamed and reject any suggestions they are racists.

The party, which is shunned by many of those outside Britain’s ultra-conservative sphere due to its hardline, racist views – including that foreigners should be sent home – has been thrown into chaos after miscreants leaked its membership list on to the internet.

It includes the name, address, age, phone numbers, occupation and hobbies of 10,000 BNP members, including children, school teachers, police, clergymen and goverment employees. Several names were marked “discretion requested” because many do not want to publicise their support for BNP policies.

Of the 10,000 members listed, 15 were based in Australia. ‘

Leaked BNP list contains NZ, Aus members

From Aotearoa Indymedia:

Fascist leaks spread member’s details in UK and Aotearoa

Recent leaks have revealed membership details of neo-fascist groups on both sides of the world – the British National Party (BNP) and the New Zealand National Front (NZNF).

In the UK, a huge list of details of BNP members has been made available. The list contains names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of over 10,000 people who are or were BNP members and donors. The list also includes other information about many of them.

Several websites have sprung up that make healthy use of this information. One, BNP Near Me, merges the information with Google Maps to show the strength (or weakness) of the BNP across the UK. The BNP member proximity search allows British users to enter their post code and then returns all BNP members in their area, with links to find their house on Google Maps.

Nick Griffin: In his own words

So… what sort of nice things could we expect to hear from Nick Griffin on his Australian tour? Here’s some stuff he’s had to say in the past:

On race: “Without the White race nothing matters [other right-wing parties] believe that the answer to the race question is integration and a futile attempt to create “Black Britons”, while we affirm that non-Whites have no place here at all and will not rest until every last one has left our land.”

On Nazi leader Adolf Hitler: “Yes, Adolf went a bit too far. His legacy is the biggest problem that the British nationalist movement has to deal with. It just creates a bad image.”

On Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler’s autobiography: “At 13, I read Mein Kampf, making notes in the margins… I remember thinking, are the Jews really that bad? The chapter I most enjoyed was the one on propaganda and organisation there are some really useful ideas there.”

On democracy: “[BNP voters backed] what they perceived to be a strong, disciplined organisation with the ability to back up its slogan ‘Defend Rights for Whites’ with well-directed boots and fists. When the crunch comes, power is the product of force and will, not of rational debate.”

Neo-Nazis demand visa equality for Holocaust denier

From the West Australian:

Party leader’s sponsors demand visa equality

Supporters of far-Right British political leader Nick Griffin are demanding to know why he could be barred from entering Australia when US gangster rap stars with criminal convictions have been given visas to perform here.

As revealed in The West Australian yesterday, Mr Griffin, the leader of the British National Party, has been red-flagged by the Immigration Department and is not likely to be granted a visa to come to Australia on a planned speaking tour next month.

Islamic and Jewish groups are urging Immigration Minister Chris Evans to deny Mr Griffin a visa, saying that his presence in Australia could incite prejudice and violence against ethnic groups.

Jim Perren – the roos are loose in the top paddock

If you should ever find oneself in a land-owning capacity in South Queensland’s Darling Downs, and you DO have kangaroos loose in the top paddock, Jim Perren is precisely the man to call, seeing as he makes his living shooting them. Jim has posted on a number of far-right forums under various pseudonyms (Stug111, 303SMLE, Defend This) and co-runs the ‘Whitelaw Towers’ (formerly ‘Victor Whitelaw’) blog with Peter Campbell (Kromlek of Asgard, ZyklonB, Charger88).

Jim has a chequered history in the Australian neo-Nazi movement. In what may soon turn out to be his Francis Fukuyama moment, that history might be coming to an end with this threat he just issued to a couple of our founders on the Australia New Nation forums:

The Good Ship BNP is a Leaky Vessel

    Update : The leak has become a media torrent. And the list has gone viral. Such is the nature of the intarwebs I guess. Fuehrer Griffin and his Party are threatening use of privacy laws they’ve apparently vowed to abolish, while an article in the Press Gazette also references Redwatch: Seven journalists appear on leaked BNP member list, November 19, 2008. A naughty police officer is also under investigation — membership of the BNP being against police regulations. Dunno if the same rule applies to the armed forces, prison guards and vicars but. As for joining the BNP: “What do I get for joining the British National Party? BNP members not only get the satisfaction of knowing that they are contributing directly to the vital work of building the Party. You will also receive a plastic credit card style membership card and our monthly membership bulletin ‘British Nationalist’. Membership runs for 12 calendar months from the issuing of your card.” As an added Bonus!, your name, home address, phone number, email address and even occupation and hobbies will be published online.

Know Your Product

Cor blimey, the BNP membership list got leaked! was one location where the list was published, but it’s since been closed. However…

There’s obviously been a fair bit of wailing and gnashing of teeth following this latest debacle, but the person (or persons) responsible have yet to be identified. In the running are filthy red hackers, or possibly ex-BNP Treasurer John Walker. Jilted John got the arse recently after clashing with BNP fuehrer Nick Griffin, and speculation is rife among fascist trolls on teh Intertubes that he may have enacted his rewenge by leaking the list.

Who knows?
