Andrew Bolt is Australia's most dangerous racist. He is employed by a major Australian regional newspaper and a TV station that broadcasts nationwide in order for him to directly peddle his racist and Islamophobic propaganda. His blog at Rupert Murdoch's Herald-Sun newspaper enjoys the support of a small but dedicated group of like-minded extreme right-wing bigots, rednecks and racists who regularly comment at his blog, and his TV spot is financially supported by various asssorted climate change deniers who have a vested interest in being anti-renewable resources and pro-pollutionist.

Bolt is dangerous because he has a wide audience that his employers see as being gullible to their brand of media propaganda.

This blog aims to expose Bolt for what he really is - a deceitful propagandist intent on dividing Australians by promoting fear and paranoia of multiculturalism. Without the backing of the likes of Murdoch and Gina Rinehart, et al, Bolt is nothing.

According to a recent report, “Australia's Race Discrimination Commissioner Graeme Innes, along with academics and industry groups, are taking part in the forum, which was organised by the Australian Human Rights Commission and the Internet Industry Association”.

Commissioner Innes said, “In my view and the view of other[s] speaking at the forum today it’s the tip of the iceberg, there's a lot [of] racism out there.” The good news is that Robert McClelland, Australia’s Attorney General has asked the Australian Human Rights Commission to ‘investigate the doubling of complaints’. It’s a step in the right direction, but what McClelland should be doing is setting his own team up to investigate breaches of the Racial Discrimination Act of 1975 and then vigorously prosecuting those that are stirring up racial and religious tensions via the media and the internet.

Right-wing anti-Islam and anti non-white immigration journalist/bloggers and their followers are, thanks to the right-wing mainstream media owners who support them, slowly making headway in creating an atmosphere in Australia that will eventually tear Australia apart racially – which, of course, is what they want.

Andrew Bolt is Australia’s most rabid racist and, thanks to his position with the Melbourne -based and Murdoch owned newspaper the ‘Herald-Sun’, attracts the most support from like-minded racists and other misguided Australians who are gullible enough to fall for Bolts and his followers fearmongering.

The doubling of complaints is very disturbing and has been due to the likes of Bolt and his colleagues and their followers increasing prominence in the mainstream media and on the internet via their blogs.

The only way to stop these people is to prosecute them. I believe that the evidence proving that much of their racism is in contravention to the Racial Discrimination Act is overwhelming just in the blogs alone; it just needs documenting and then handed over to the Attorney General or, alternatively, handed over to a barrister with a view to a private prosecution.

So far, no prosecutions of racist journalists have occurred. This has emboldened them to be even more blatant in their racism. It’s time those that deplore racism and all that it stands for to stand firm against it and support their prosecution and the shutting down of their racist views in public forums.

Free speech is one thing; advocating racial and religious hatred, violence and vilification is something else.

Many thanks to reader Peter for his input to the discussion.

It seems Andrew Bolt’s utterly transparent pseudo-disgust of South African white supremacist Eugene Terreblanche’s racism is seen as support for the White supremacist cause among some at the neo-Nazi Stormfront blog.

In Bolt’s latest commentary about Terreblanche’s death, Bolt attempts to invoke journalistic professionalism, (as if in his own work he actually cared about journalistic professionalism), in order to defend the monster that is Terreblanche against allegations that Terreblanche may have been sexually abusing young men.

The comments at the ‘Stormfront’ blog generally support Bolt despite Bolt’s ‘apparent’, as far as at least one Stormfront member infers, support for Jews. Another ‘Stormfront’ member, however, implies that ‘Bolt has to support Jews, Israel and Zionism because he’s part of the Jewish-owned media’.

Bolt makes it quite clear in his column that the real enemy is not Terreblanche but the blacks of South Africa – which, of course, would reflect his own views about non-white non-Europeans everywhere, particularly in Australia.

During the past week Bolt put up some 17 posts that can be construed as explicitly racist or designed to educe racist and or religious vilification from his blog’s regular coterie of commenters.

On Saturday, 10 April, there were two posts; one on Sunday, 11 April; six on Monday, 12 April; four on 13 April; one on 14 April; two on 15 April, and xxx on Friday, 16 April.

This week all four of Bolt’s main target groups; boatpeople, non-white immigrants (especially non-white refugee immigrants) who engage in violent activities in Australia, Islam, and Aborigines, came into Bolt’s sights.


In an example of Bolt’s bloggies frothing at the mouth Islamaphobia one commenter, ‘Mick of Wiley Park’, wrote:

“If we had half a clue at all, as a bare minimum, all mosques would be bugged and monitored by ASIS, and searched for weapons. Any and all mosques busted for jihad-preaching and/or weapons should not only be closed down but bulldozed.”

To which several bloggies responded saying:

“Mick, agree 100% Time to stop this crap before it’s too late”, from the aptly named ‘Rob the Redneck’.


“Any religion not preaching peace and harmony should be closed down and the preachers imprisoned as security risks”, from ‘Disgruntled’.

“It is only a matter of time before we have Australians blown to bits by these monsters. Then maybe we will have some action. I say, send all of them and their offspring back to where they came from. The poor women have no say in anything and are so brainwashed they would not know what to do with freedom. Why do they call these preachers clerics? They are a disgrace to humankind. There is supposed to be a law against preaching hatred and inciting people to kill. Why are the authorities here and in America so weak against these relics of the stone age?”, from the totally paranoid ‘Glenis of Qld’.

Add to that all Islamic colleges and schools”, from hatemonger ‘Stephen P’.

And so it goes on.


During March of this year Bolt reported that there had been more than two million page views to his blog yet only 156,000 of them were unique views. That means some 92.2% of the hits were mostly from his regular bloggies, who multi-click several times a day which contribute to the boost in numbers. Just a glance through a page of comments to Bolt’s posts will demonstrate the extent to which Bolt’s regular bloggies contribute to his numbers by multi-clicking – and they’re just the ones that can be seen and counted. Many of them post a myriad of comments on each and every thread.

Bolt’s numbers paint a false picture that is designed to deliberately deceive by allowing ‘stray’ (casual) readers to believe that his is a populist blog and that, therefore, the views expressed must represent mainstream Australia. The reality is something completely different – and totally dishonest.

Over the past seven days Andrew Bolt has put up some 12 posts that may be considered racist or designed explicitly to elicit racially or religiously vilifying remarks from people who comment at his blog.

On Saturday, 3 April, there was one; on Sunday, 4 April, he gave it a rest; one on the 5 April; three on 6 April; two on 7 April, four on 8 April, and, so far, one on 9 April.

Three of Bolt’s four main target groups; boatpeople, non-white immigrants (especially non-white refugee immigrants) who engage in violent activities in Australia, Islam, and Aborigines, came into Bolt’s sights this week. Only Aborigines were spared Bolt’s vilification.

One comment in particular from a person called ‘Phyllis’ sums up Bolt’s racist views:

NZ has become a conduit for raw sewage. If they wish to fill their country with scum, fine. It is now time for Australia to apply stringent entry criteria to Kiwi passport holders, and to actively discriminate against certain sub-groups.

‘Raw sewage’? ‘Scum’? The narrative and comments prior to Phyllis’s comment makes it clear that the people Phyllis are referring to are non-white non-European people that were refugee asylum seekers who were accepted by New Zealand, who, as New Zealand citizens, exercised their right to come to live in Australia. They have done nothing wrong at all, yet Phyllis recommends that Australia ‘actively discriminates’ against ‘certain sub-groups’.

This is racial vilification. It is both immoral and it is illegal, and Bolt, by allowing it to be published on a moderated blog, is as guilty as ‘Phyllis’ is of this disgusting piece of racial vilification, vilification that is endorsed by many others who comment at Bolt’s racist hate blog.

Republished from 18 March 2010 post at Murdoch's Propagandists

Australian ‘Herald-Sun’ Murdoch columnist and propagandist Andrew “my best friend was an Aborigine” Bolt has become increasingly – and disturbingly – obsessive about race in Australia. His outburst yesterday was about Kim Collard, an artist who identifies as Aboriginal. Since Collard’s mother is part Aboriginal, and, therefore, also identifies as Aboriginal, but has a white father, Bolt denies that Collard is Aboriginal because of his pale colour and ancestry. Bolt infers that Collard has had the Aborigine ‘bred out of him’ as the old White Australian rednecks would once say, and that, as a ‘white’ person, is not eligible for any of the various concessions, prizes, awards, etc., that are available to Aboriginal people.

This is not the first time that Bolt has denied people their Aboriginal identity. Back in March 2009, Bolt questioned the Aboriginal identity of a Queensland politician, Leeanne Enoch, who was vying for a seat in the Queensland parliament. Then later in April 2009, Bolt again question the Aboriginal identity of artists and writer Bindi Cole, Annette Sax and Tara June Winch. And then there’s his piece in November last year that criticised the Aboriginal identify of Perth model Emily Cattermole, who is the grand-daughter of WA indigenous politician Ernie Bridge whose Aboriginal identity Bolt also questions. At the end of his article he has the audacity to write this piece of hypocrisy:

“Could we stop obsessing about racial differences almost invisible to the naked eye, and almost washed out by generations of mixed ancestry? It makes us look a little bit, well, racist.”

Well, yes it does, Bolt; but the only one obsessing about it is you and your coterie of obsessed racist bloggies!

But Bolt’s obsession with race doesn’t end just with the non-question of racial identity. He also denies that there were any stolen children and denies that there was ever any policy of ‘breeding the Aborigines out of existence’.

Bolts racist obsession with Aborigines, however, extends way beyond Aborigines. Bolt also obsesses about other races, religions and cultures which are all part of his overall racist paranoia. Asylum seekers that arrive by boat regularly fall into Bolt’s racist sights mainly because they tend to be non-white. While Bolt refers to these people as ‘illegal immigrants’, he says nothing of the hundreds of real illegal immigrants that arrive here every day on tourist and work visas who come with absolutely every intention of staying on beyond the expiration of their visa’s, most of whom are white Europeans who, of course, Bolt has no problem with.

Bolt’s biggest fear is Islam. Bolt doesn’t see Islamophobia as racist. For Bolt racism does not go beyond biological and physical differences between peoples. Culture and religion, the vilification of which most people see as a form of racism, are fair game for Bolt as he attempts to justify himself and, at the same time, avoid the racist tag by denying that being anti-Islam is racist.

Another popular target for Bolt’s over the top racism is black, coloured and non-whites that are embroiled in street violence. Today Bolt has written about gang violence in Melbourne where he highlights the ethnicity of those involved in such a way as to suggest that these people are innately violent because of their ethnicity and because they are immigrants. He even criticises the police for not describing the ethnicity of offenders though this kind of criticism is confined only to the ethnicity of non-whites.

Over the years, all of Bolt’s racism has revolved around either non-whites or Islam or both. All are vilified including Somalis, Samoans, Maoris, Lebanese, Indians, Afghans, Iraqis, Iranians, and, of course, Aborigines.

Bolt has become so fixated about the inferiority of races and cultures that are not Anglo-white European he has actually stated that ‘white Australian racism is a myth’. He’s forgotten, very conveniently, about Australia’s ‘White Australia Policy’, a policy which only ended in 1975.

Bolt recently told me in an email that his best friend when he was in year seven at school was an Aborigine. Given Bolt’s frothing at the mouth seething hatred of Aborigines, one can be forgiven for finding this totally impossible to believe. People like Bolt often deny their racism by telling people that ‘their best friend’ is actually someone of a race that they are vilifying.

Perhaps, if Bolt detests a multicultural Australia so much, he should find somewhere else to live. Certainly Australia will be a far better place without him. Either that or he should seek clinical help for his obsessive compulsion and delusional complexes about racial superiority. First, though, he needs to cease his denial of being a rabid racist and recognise that White Australians are as ‘ethnic’ as anyone else here in Australia and are amongst the most racist of all races that are in our multicultural society.
