Pauline Hanson shocked, SHOCKED I tell you, to find brown people in Britain

Let no one say that Pauline’s a racist- until they’ve read Kate Dennehy’s bit, anyway.

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

Pauline’s paradise lost

PAULINE HANSON has abandoned plans to move to Britain, after discovering it is not the racially pure utopia she was hoping for.

Returning a fortnight ago from an extended holiday in Europe, the former One Nation leader has told The Sun-Herald she is back in Australia for good and considering yet another return to politics.

”I love England but so many people want to leave there because it’s overrun with immigrants and refugees,” Ms Hanson said last week.

”France is becoming filled with Muslims and the French and English are losing their way of life because they’re controlled by foreigners in the European Union.

”Problems are worse over there than they are in Australia and Australia is still the best place in the world to live but the same sorts of awful things are happening here too. Residents of Commonwealth countries who want to live here are discriminated against in favour of others.”

Facebook defacer unmasked as white supremacist KKK member

Facebook vandal Jarred Hensley in full Ku Klux Klan regalia.

One of the men responsible for the grotesque defacing of Facebook tribute pages, including that of dead Melbourne teen Cameron Lowe, is a high-ranking Ku Klux Klan member who served two years in jail for viciously beating a 16-year-old Latino boy.

Jarred Hensley, 28, from Cincinnati, Ohio, outed himself to a pair of Australian vigilantes on a website chat room used by his group to organise and gloat about desecrating scores of Facebook tribute pages.

This week, the group was responsible for vandalising the pages of Lowe, 17, who died after being punched in the head, and Chantelle Rowe, 16, from Adelaide, who was murdered along with her parents. They harassed grieving family members through private messages and published obscene images on the tribute pages.

Facebook has removed the images and banned the users responsible but the largely US group is outside the reach of Australian law. Local law officials say it is not a crime to deface Facebook tribute pages and while politicians have expressed outrage, they have acknowledged that it is difficult to act as the vandals are based overseas.

But two concerned Australians decided to visit the forum where the vandals congregate and infiltrate their chat room. They purposely baited Hensley on the chat room and he appeared there on webcam to give them the finger.

The identities of the two vigilantes are known to this website, however, we have agreed to keep them anonymous in this story.

“He was only too proud to give out his name and he said come and get me, because he knows that international laws aren’t there for Australians to do anything,” said one of the Australian vigilantes in a phone interview.

Using the webcam image and the name, it was easy to verify the identity of Hensley, thanks to the distinctive tattoos that cover his arms. Hensley is pictured online in formal KKK regalia giving a Hitler salute with white power and Nazi flags in the background.
