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.

Tony Abbott seems set to get his fifteen minutes of fame - courtesy of Bolt and a tragedy that Abbott seems willing to milk for all its political worth.

In his blog today, Bolt writes: “Tony Abbott is leading the West into a confrontation with nuclear superpower Russia over the downing of MH17. The stakes are incredibly high, as the Prime Minister organises, effectively, a small army to move into Ukraine.”

What utter tosh!

The ‘small army’ turns out to be a small group of Australian Federal Police officers who will be unarmed and, rather than actually confronting ‘nuclear superpower Russia’, they’ve postponed going into Ukraine because it’s too dangerous due to the fighting between the Ukrainian forces and Russian separatists.

The way Bolt tells it you’d think Abbott was the saviour of the world instead of a bumbling lunatic who has staggered onto the misfortune of others and realised that he can make political hay from it while he has the opportunity to strut the world stage and allow his right-wing backers in the commentariat to promote him to status of ‘world leader’.

What  a load of puffed up nonsense.

Lately Bolt seems to have become increasingly disassociated with reality. On his blog today he’s insanely demanding that Putin hand over the ‘murder weapon’ that was used to shoot down flight MH17 over the Ukraine. Bolt writes:

Where is the Buk missile system that almost certainly brought down the Malaysian airliner?
In any murder investigation, the weapon is usually second only to the body in the search for physical evidence.
That the Buk has not been produced proves Russia is actually hiding evidence of a crime — one in which it is deeply implicated.
The Buk is so massive it should be the easiest thing for Russian President Vladimir Putin to find. It’s nearly 10 metres long and four metres high. The killers can’t drop it down a drain or toss it in a dumpster.
Moreover, it is an incredibly lethal and expensive weapon that no army would somehow lose.

Of course, Russia is no more ‘hiding evidence of a crime’ than the Americans were when they shot down Iran Air Flight 655 in July 1988. Like the 1988 incident, the shooting down of Flight MH17 was a tragic case of misidentification. The Americans did not hand over the Surface to Air Missile launcher that was used to shoot down the Iran Air Boeing A300. Apart from anything else, what would be the point? The fact is; Russia, apart from the fact that it either directly or indirectly supplied the weapon, actually had nothing to do with the shoot down of MH17. There is no way the Putin or any of his military would have authorised the shoot down of a commercial aircraft. Clearly, the entire incident, like that of the shoot down of 655, was a simple case of misidentification which, in his case, was carried out by inexperienced militiamen.

Bolt’s over-the-top demands are symptomatic of a person slowly losing his marbles as he sees support for his vision of a world reflecting his notion of Western Exceptionalism slowly disappearing into oblivion.

In his blog today Bolt attempts once again to deny that he isn’t paid by Murdoch to spout anti-climate change propaganda claiming that Murdoch himself is a greenie.

What utter rubbish.

 What Murdoch says in public and what he tells his journos to write with regard to climate change are two different things.

Murdoch only changed his public stance back in 2006 in deference to his son James.

The reality is that Murdoch is not vocal about supporting climate change policies. In fact I've heard from two now retired Murdoch journos (and one cartoonist) that Murdoch has quietly encouraged them to support anti-climate change propaganda.

The reason is simple; he has a massive financial interest in oil and gas resources through Genie Energy and Israeli Energy Initiatives (hence Bolt's energetic support of fascist Israel).

Bolt claims he’s not paid to write anti-climate change propaganda for Murdoch and that his journalism is independent. However, trying to draw on Murdoch’s pathetic past effort at being a greenie is blatantly transparent – indeed, so transparent that one might be forgiven for thinking Murdoch had even asked him to write this nonsense.
