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.

Today Bolt continues his relentless tirade attempting to whitewash Scott Morrison’s responsibilities to immigration detainees held in Coalition concentration camps. In a piece at his blog this morning, Bolt uses the deaths of asylum seeking refugees for political point scoring – literally. He infers that one death under Abbott is better than a 1000 deaths under Labor; never mind that Bolt is outrageously suggesting here that Labor was directly responsible for the deaths by drowning of boatpeople seeking asylum in Australia.

Bolt’s assertion is pure rhetoric.

The difference, of course, is that Labor were not crewing the boats that sank killing over a thousand asylum seekers, whereas Scott Morrison was in direct command of the camps in which a detainee was killed and some 77 others injured.

Regardless of how Bolt cares to spin it, Morrison is responsible for the death of the inmate and the injuries to 77 other inmates on Manus Island. It was Morrison who put them there when they didn’t want to be there – unlike the victims of the drownings who ultimately died as a result of a decision they made out of desperation.
