I’m Cured!

February 2, 2004

10 years from now, you’ll go to open your packet of durries and be given a 10,000 volt reminder of the effects of smoking. Until we can raise enough taxes to implement that technology, we’re going to have to make do with these grotesque pictures of festering limbs and dissected organs on the packs.

There’s always been a problem with the anti-smoking TV ads that I couldn’t quite pinpoint. Watching the new ads today on the news, I realised what it is…

If you dissect a perfectly healthy lung on TV during dinner time, it’s still going to make everyone feel fucking sick looking at it! It doesn’t matter at all whether the lung has cancer cells in it or not – it’s still fucking gross.

Hey, if you want to gross us out, why not just show some full motion toilet-cam shots featuring a fat guy taking a runny shit? It’s sure to put everyone off everything!

After all, anything’s fair game in the war against free will. Why stop at mildly repulsive images when there’s so much sick shit out there?

Indeed, why not force our fucking eyelids open and make us watch people being shot in the face while listening to Beethoven’s 9th?

In the meantime, the time may finally have come where people actually have a good reason to go out and buy some of these speccy pro-smoking labels. Get them quick, while they’re still legal!

Nazis Up The Wazoo

Welcome to Perth, home of the Australian Nationalist Movement:

September 2002:
Anti-Asian arsonist to be released

Van Tonegren was sentenced to 18 years in prison after a series of arson attacks on Asian restaurants, but he’s only served 12 years, as he’s entitled to a one-third deduction under Western Australia’s sentencing laws.

January 2003:
Neo-Nazi to stand for Aussie parliament

Australia’s most notorious white supremacist, jailed for a violent anti-Asian campaign in the late 1980s, has announced plans to stand for the federal parliament, it was reported here Wednesday.

Unrepentant neo-Nazi Jack van Tongeren, who sports a moustache in the style of his hero Adolf Hitler, said he believed running a political campaign was an effective way to get his message across.

Obviously it wasn’t effective enough, because look what’s being going on in sunny Perth this month…

January 2004
Jack’s Back

as you may have seen Jack Van Tongeren and his racist mob the AMN have been posting up stickers all over town, has already been folks out there taking down and covering up their stuff, but these fuckers are vilgilant, going out every couple of days putting up new stuff.

February 2004
Chinese restaurants firebombed in Perth

Nazi swastikas have been plastered across three Chinese restaurants which were firebombed in Perth overnight.

The firebombings of the three Chinese restaurants happened in the space of one hour and all occurred in Perth’s southern suburbs.

In the late 1980s, the neo-Nazi group, the Australian Nationalists Movement, was responsible for firebombing a number of Chinese restaurants in Perth and vilifying the Asian community.

Police Commissioner Barry Matthews says he is reluctant to link the firebombings to similar attacks in the late 1980s.

Riiiight.

Nazi Hunters Of The World: UNITE!

February 2, 2004

Lefty bloggers, as we all know, are the keepers of everything that is right and good in the world. Which is why we should all be grateful that the brilliant minds of Rob Corr and James Russell have banded together to out John Ray as a Nazi:

Ray is not exactly ignorant of the ways of Nazism. During the 1960s Ray was a member of various Australian Nazi parties.

RAY=HITLER!!!11!!1

What these intrepid wankers fail to mention, of course, is that John Ray is (was) a sociologist. Whether they are deliberately being morons or just incapable of using google is a decision I will leave up to the reader. Let’s just say that it took me exactly 5.8 seconds to put a key search term into google to find John’s own account of his time as a “Nazi”.

The horrible truth? Ray joined the Nazi organisation as part of a study of anti-semitism. His findings were posted in “The Bridge”. An “Australian Jewish periodical primarily devoted to cultural matters and current affairs.”

Who knows though, eh? Maybe that particular journal routinely pays real, live Nazis to write stuff for them.

John’s other crimes are apparently to write about his studies of racism and sociology without bleeping out the naughty words. Even the very mention of racism is enough to get you branded with the racist tag by your ever-vigilant lefty watchdogs these days.

I also like Rob’s reference to John Ray as the “Australian blogosphere’s nuttiest member”. This coming from the guy who wrote a university essay asserting that the Black Panthers were “inevitable, necessary and desirable extension of the non-violent civil rights movement”.

What to do with “Revolting” Robbie Corr? Like James Russell says in his poorly researched slander of John Ray:

Never had a high opinion of the bloke, have an even lower one now.

Update: More on John Ray and the Nazis.
