While Australia’s most virulent racist, Murdoch columnist Andrew Bolt of Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper, has been brought before the Courts to answer charges relating to articles he has written about Aboriginal people in Australia, it should be realised that his racism doesn’t stop at the vilification of people of colour – or what is in his view, the lack of it.

The particular group of people that are taking Bolt to Court are all Aboriginal people who by virtue of parentage no longer have skin colour by which they may be distinguished. Bolt essentially argues that if a sighted person were to see them then that person could argue that the person they are looking at, based solely on their appearance, are not actually Aboriginal. A non-sighted or sight-impaired person, however, may not have the luxury of coming to a similar conclusion and, if Bolt himself were thus afflicted, he too would not be able to remark as he had in his articles.

Bolt argues simply that because these people lack what is in his view the appropriate amount of skin pigmentation, then they cannot be Aboriginal despite a proven heritage to their Aboriginality.

But, as I said, Bolt’s racism doesn’t stop at vilifying Aboriginal people. Like all racists, Bolt also vilifies other people that are not of European appearance especially if they happen to be sub-continental Asian, black African, Central Asian, Middle Eastern or North African Arab. Surprisingly, for a white supremacist style racist, Bolt claims that he is not an anti-Semite and supports Israeli Zionism. While this may be the case, it should be noted that his Islamophobic peers in Europe who were once dyed-in-the-wool neo-nazi Jew haters also now claim to support Israel. For these European racists, anti-Semitism has been replaced by Islamaphobia. One wonders why it should not be any different for white supremacist Islamophobes in Australia – of which, judging by the audience that are attracted to Bolt’s online blog at the Herald Sun website, there are, thankfully, not too many.

It is unfortunate that there are some Australian’s that support Bolt’s racist world view and it is also unfortunate that a leading media mogul should provide support for his vile hatreds. Australia would be better off by far for not having to tolerate the rabid writings of this particular racist.

"For months now the struggle against Germany is waged by each Jewish community, at each conference, in all our syndicates, and by each Jew all over the world. There is reason to believe that our part in this struggle has general value. We will trigger a spiritual and material war of all the world against Germany's ambitions to become once again a great nation, to recover lost territories and colonies. But our Jewish interests demand the complete destruction of Germany. Collectively and individually, the German nation is a threat to us Jews." -- Vladimir Jabotinsky (founder of the Jewish terrorist group, Irgun Zvai Leumi) in Mascha Rjetsch, January, 1934

I would imagine this might provoke some "dyed-in-the-wool neo-nazi Jew haters" into some animosity towards the chosen!
The protection and love of ones culture, morals and, race are now strictly verboten in Holocaustralia, values never to been seen again.

I never read or listen to Bolt and most think if you held him up to the light, you'd not find a brain in him, but surely his own extremism is his own worst enemy as it alienates so many people.

I feel the same way about Tony Abbott.
That ill disguised sneer fixed on his face toward everyone alienates a lot of people across the country.
He's seen as a thug and a bully as well as being like all narcissists, so inappropriate to justify that smug self superiority as really, just who is he?.
What has he done in his life that warrants his looking down on us all?.
He's no great mind, not a philosopher, scientist etc.

Perhaps its best if we challenge the likes of Bolt and Abbott certainly, but know that they invariably destroy themselves by their own extremism.
