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.

Andrew Bolt is now taking a new tack in his role as a champion of the polluters by saying that anti-pollutionists that use the term ‘carbon’ or ‘carbon tax’ are being ignorant because, he says, carbon is a solid and has nothing to do with climate change and can hardly be taxed.

This is a patently transparent and crude, if not desperate, attempt to deceive – and, as can be seen at his column, many of his followers have fallen for his nonsense.

The reality is somewhat less prosaic. When using the word 'carbon' within the context of the climate change debate, almost everyone is aware that the reference to 'carbon' refers to the various gaseous forms that carbon may come in and not the solid form.

When the word 'carbon' is used in the climate change debate it is used as a form of abbreviation to mean carbon dioxide and to a lesser extent carbon monoxide, both of which, when over-abundant in the atmosphere to the point where it is detrimental to the environment, can become and are considered as pollutants.

To attempt to belittle those that use the term 'carbon' when they are clearly referring to it in its gaseous form by suggesting they are ignorant because carbon is actually a solid, is thoroughly disingenuous and highlights only your own ignorance - and desperation.


In this post at his column today Bolt highlights a story of a recently converted Muslim man who received 40 lashes to his back from other Muslim men supposedly for drinking alcohol. If anyone other than Bolt had highlighted this story then there would be no problem but Bolt has brought this story to our attention for one purpose and one purpose only and that is to yet again demonise Islam by deliberately inferring that this is how immigrant Muslims behave in Australia.

The title of his post alone, ‘Who let them in?’ frames the perpetrators as immigrants. Yet, when one reads the article Bolt cites and links to, one finds that only one of them is identified as an immigrant but has been here since he was two-years old; hardly the image of a militant Muslim in Australia for the sole purpose of bring Sharia law here which is the image that Bolt would like us to have, and is a follower of a Sydney-born, not immigrant, imam. Where Bolt gets the ‘them’ from in his article’s title is not explained.

Bolt compounds the intent of his post by omitting any sympathy for the victim of this assault by his fellow Muslims.
