Scott Morrison is like a big human windsock. When the gales of public sentiment blow somewhere in his direction he inflates to the size of a normal politician and becomes wildly animated while the rest of the time he just sort of hangs there all pink and limp, not really doing much of anything.
On the issue of this week’s Commie violence in Melbourne, the prime minister named the problem as self-indulgence (read virtue signalling) on the part of anti-mining protestors whom he named as “Anarchists”.
The great heap is right on that score but to nationalists, the anarchists are a well-defined group of people connected to the legal profession, the security services and the upper classes, not just dotty serial pests such as the crowd of knot-heads present outside IMARC.
Morrison went further though, promising to do something about the wave of civil disobedience and the targeted secondary boycotts attempted by climate extremists and their fellow travellers in recent months, though even as laymen we were immediately sceptical as to whether, at the federal level, much more could be done.
As secondary boycott, in law, is the practice of a trade union seeking to pressure a company with which they have no direct dispute into ceasing doing business with a company with which they do have a dispute, this type of conduct was made illegal in Australia from the late 1970s, by the Fraser government.
In the context of Mr Morrison’s speech, however, the groups conducting such boycotts are not usually registered organisations such as unions, though they may be proxies funded by ACTU affiliates, such as activist group GetUp!
Presumably, the prime minister would seek to increase penalties under the trade practices act for groups and individuals organising secondary boycotts since any attempt to directly restrict the political liberty of activists would almost certainly be deemed unconstitutional and fail if tested in the courts.
The worrying thing for activists is that the federal government is whipping up ill-feeling toward all anti-globalisation, pro-environment activists by colouring the public’s perception with imagery from Melbourne of violent wing-nuts grappling with police and accosting passers-by.
Scott Morrison’s objective here is clearly to protect the multinational banks, resources and infrastructure corporations and billionaire speculators who are pillaging our commonwealth in the name of profit; he is merely using the plight of a few sub-contractors subjected to boycotts and the spectre of the possible unemployment of the workers so affected as a smokescreen.
This would appear to be a sticky wicket for nationalists as we genuinely oppose the sell-off of Australia’s natural resources and would immediately boot out the multinationals and seize the wealth of the oligarchs should we succeed in governing the country, thus we risk being lumped in with the lunatics of Socialist Alternative, who organised this week’s protests in Melbourne.
There is no conflict of interest here on our part since we are sincere and have had nationalisation of key industries and the expropriation of ill-gotten fortunes as policies for decades, the difference between us and the likes of the socialists and Extinction Rebellion is that we are honest about our aims and they are not.
Nationalists would rehabilitate and expand Australian industry, including mining, and put more Australians to work in our planned mixed economy, with the first priority being the welfare of the working classes and all profits from protected sectors flowing back to the public purse.
If the climate protestors were really what they claim to be, or even if they were sincere Marxists they would be expressing the similar sentiments in order to win over the working classes; the big tell, which exposes them, is their lack of rhetoric on the matter on nationalisation of industry, they instead seem to insist only on this juvenile, nihilistic revolutionary shtick.
The other issue here and perhaps the more important problem for activists is that the pseudo-left formations attacking cops and workers in Melbourne, or masquerading under the Extinction Rebellion brand in other states are deadset against anyone bar their own cadres having a say in public life.
Their mission is to clear the board of any political tendency which does not accord with their crazy undergraduate brand of street theatre.
The sinister aspect of the socialist-anarchist bloc is that they operate under implicit green light conditions from sitting Labor governments and are treated with kid gloves by the police and judiciary, so they are, in effect, agents of the money power by virtue of the fact that they will shut down any attempt by those coming at the anti-globalist struggle from a different angle, be it real environmentalists, nationalists or civic patriots.
The police do have the power to remove and ban troublemakers from designated sectors of Melbourne at the discretion of the supervising officers on the ground; during the IMARC demonstrations Zionist and civic patriot activist Avi Yemini was removed from the Southbank precinct and issued a 24-hour ban from the area.
So the Victoria Police can and do remove people they consider a threat to public order from demonstrations, the bias shown by senior officers, however, borders on corruption since they clearly support the Labor government and their anarcho-communist enforcers in their efforts to restrict the political liberty of any genuine dissenting activists.
Further to that, the judiciary is similarly inclined to go easy on the anarcho-communists when they are brought before the courts, with small fines, community orders and acquittals being the norm. Given that many of the agitators are public servants or students aspiring to positions as bureaucrats and teachers the handing out of a few convictions would stop the violence and hooliganism in its tracks since a criminal conviction makes employment by the state difficult to impossible in most cases.
Contrast the lenient treatment shown by the magistrates to the pseudo-leftists with the treatment of the civic patriots known as The Bendigo Three, who were convicted and heavily fined for a non-violent stunt conducted on a weekend outside a closed public building, which threatened and inconvenienced nobody.
The prime minister, boob that he is, cynically uses the spectre of targeted and stage-managed violence by the pseudo-left IMARC protestors to call for harsher sanctions against all anti-globalist or pro-environmental activists; we have laid bare in this article his real intentions and the actual state of play in street politics.
We urge our readers to reject Morrison’s sleazy attempts to shield his precious oligarchs and multinational bandit companies from criticism and direct community resistance; the workers are too smart to fall for the prime minister’s ruse and we deserve better than the fear-mongering of his third-rate government.
