How can the Australian publish this tripe?
Mark Ritson from the Australian reported today on the sock puppet accounts which have been harassing Sky News since it cucked on the Blair Cottrell interview. The headline and opening paragraphs gave promise that perhaps the mainstream media was going to reference some of the arguments that Blair Cottrell makes, or even mention The XYZ in the process, even if it were with the slander of perceived “racism”:
However, Ritson’s piece quickly devolved into the predictable spiel about how Blair Cottrell is evil and we must not mention anything that he says:
“First, and most important, unless your show appears on the History Channel it is unacceptable to feature anyone professing even a fleeting appreciation for Adolf Hitler. Even if your intention is to argue against their case, giving the former leader of the far-right United Patriots Front airtime on national television provides an aura of legitimacy that must be avoided at all costs.”
As Matty’s Modern Life has demonstrated, Blair Cottrell and the UPF are not national socialists:
The last time I saw this level of nuclear-waste-tier containment of verboten opinion was when their ABC followed an airing of The Great Global Warming Swindle with the most stacked pro-climate-change-hysteria panel it could find.
Ritson did mention Sleeping Giants, the sock puppet Twitter account that encouraged its cult followers to blackmail private companies into divesting from Sky News (perhaps they should have just kept the interview up after all):
“The American organisation, which set up shop in Australia a year ago, consists of an anonymous team of activists who target specific media channels to achieve their political agenda. Activism is nothing new in the world of Australian media, but what makes Sleeping Giants different are the methods it applies to achieve its ends..
“As soon as the Cottrell saga occurred, Sleeping Giants was quick to create a shortlist of Australian brands. Rather than blanket statements of outrage, Sleeping Giants knows the only way to hurt a media company, especially a TV news channel, is in the wallet by focusing on ad money. And it did not go after all advertisers; it targeted only the brands that buy media on Sky News..
“Having selected these target brands, Sleeping Giants is adept at encouraging its thousands of followers to communicate directly with the brands in question and use social media to demand that the companies withdraw their advertising from Sky News immediately.
“Using hashtags and significant numbers of direct and repeated calls for action on Twitter and Facebook, customers bombard the brand in question with increasingly aggressive messages demanding that it comply.
“The format of the messaging is strikingly similar. Whether it be Qantas, Wesfarmers or Virgin, messages appear from a formerly loyal customer of the brand threatening to withdraw their custom from the company unless it immediately cuts advertising.”
If you would like to report Sleeping Giants Oz for harassment, you can do so here. They also have plenty of international affiliates you can report, so feel free to use Twitter’s search function to your heart’s content.
Weirdly, Ritson didn’t condemn the behaviour of this hate group. He didn’t even mouth some platitude about how even though Blair Cottrell is evil, this offends his sensibilities regarding freedom of speech. Instead, he labelled the methods of digital terrorists Sleeping Giants as “impressive” and lamented the “double standard” that they do not go after Facebook and Twitter for continuing to allow Cottrell access to their platforms; ie, he called for even more speech suppression:
“Now, however, the brand safety boot is on the other foot. Fairly or not, Sky News is being targeted for featuring Nazi sympathisers. The fact Cottrell continues to enjoy full Facebook access does not seem to have bothered any of the advertisers pulling dollars from Sky News.
“Twitter may have banned Cottrell from its site but, in contrast to Sky, this is a temporary ban and he will back on the site sharing his odious views tomorrow evening when his one-week ban ends.”
If you would actually like to hear what Blair Cottrell has to say, you can hear him discuss multiculturalism with us on last week’s XYZ livestream. We were lucky enough to be the first crew to interview him after he caused the Fake News Media meltdown:
It was pretty mild, to be honest, along the lines of what we are used to from Chris Kenny or Andrew Bolt, just without the cucking. Blair made the observation that the word “diversity” stems from the word “divide”. This reveals the lie in the slogan “diversity is our strength”, as it contradicts the axiom that a house divided against itself cannot stand.
This is pertinent considering this little bit of treason with which Mark Ritson finished:
“It would be nice to think that the Sky News ban on Cottrell would result in his odious anti-Australian output being silenced forever.”
So according to this weasel, striving for a common identity with which to bind the Australian people to one another is “un-Australian.” Also, is that a threat?
You know, one day, we are going to be the ones who control the government, the courts, the institutions, the schools, universities and all the media companies. When we do, anybody who tries to even hint that the likes of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, George Soros, Gough Whitlam and Angela Merkel were not communist war criminals, will be harassed mercilessly online, be forced to quit their jobs and have their lives ruined. Or we’ll just dump them straight in prison on trumped up charges of breaching the peace.
We are learning the hard way how even a hint of leftism always leads to full communism. And we don’t have any intention of paying our opponents the courtesy of free speech which they were unwilling to extend to us.
It is going to be a lot of fun.
Quote of the Day: It’s not okay to call someone a nazi
Quote of the Day goes to Dvir Abramovich of the Anti-Defamation Commission, who has made it abundantly clear that it is not okay to call someone a “nazi”, with regards to comments by Mark Latham against idiot Victorian Transport Minister Jacinta Allan’s decision to suspend Sky News from airing at Victorian train stations:
Anti-Defamation Commission chairman Dvir Abramovich said today the debate on the issue was legitimate, but urged commentators to steer away from comparisons with dictators which downplayed genuine crimes that had been committed.
“While I understand that there are strong views regarding this issue, Mr Latham’s inappropriate comparison of Jacinta Allan’s decision to Nazi Germany is insensitive, outrageous and needlessly causes further pain to survivors and to their families,” Dr Abramovich said.
“Yes, the debate about pulling Sky News bulletins from public train stations is a legitimate one, and people are entitled to disagree with the government’s stance. However, it’s a gross and odious distortion of history to compare Ms Allan’s actions to Goebbels’s genocidal propaganda.”
You heard the man, calling someone a “nazi” is hatespeech.
We expect apologies to come thick and fast over the next few days from Australia’s media and political establishment to Blair Cottrell.
XYZ Quote of the Day.
