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.

With a headline screaming “Terrorise the gangs as they terrorise us” Bolt makes a thinly veiled and implicit incitement to violence toward those who he implies are Islamic migrants. In doing so Bolt gets close to crossing the line of provoking racial violence just with the headline alone.

He also implies that the law should be discriminatory by having the police and other law enforcement agents target ‘gangs’ and that they should then be further discriminated against by the judiciary who Bolt suggests should give these people jail sentences for trivial offences or, in a direct reference to migrants, deported.

While Bolt has been very careful not to refer specifically to Muslims in this particular article, Bolt’s almost daily well-known and relentless anti-Islamic and anti-multicultural tirade elsewhere at his blog and in his writings make it quite clear exactly who Bolt is referring to in this particular article.

Bolt’s article should be at least reported to the Australian Press Council and the article’s headline should be investigated as to whether or not Bolt is inciting vigilante violence or has even committed an offence.
