Andrew Bolt is a disgrace and deserves to be pointed out as one

Andrew Bolt is a bloody disgrace. He deserves every bit of the outraged reaction he is getting back for his latest piece of garbage, posing as journalism.

No doubt he will call the wave of revulsion from the Australian community a silencing of his right to speak and a leftist plot. His fan base will follow suit.

The man, who constantly claims to be silenced, has unparalleled access to the Murdoch platform, including newspapers, radio and television, shoveled his garbage headlined “The Foreign Invasion.”

He claims that Australia is being swamped by a “tidal wave” of immigration and being “colonised” by foreigners.

He did not only attack the Muslims, Africans and Asians. He also has a swipe at the Jewish community.

This has attracted condemnation from the Jewish Community Council of Victoria. It’s president Jennifer Rupert pointed out that there is “a rise in ultra-right wing activity in Victoria and this type of activity can fuel antisemitic, ant- Islam and general racist debate and language in our community.”

There is the implication that Andrew Bolt is part of this.

Leaders of other migrant communities are also speaking out.

Bolt’s views do not represent those of the Australian community, which welcomes the contributions made by our migrants, and has a right, you might even call it a duty, to stand up to the fanning of hate and division, based on race, ethnicity, faith, and cultural origin.

Bolt tries to turn reality on its head, complaining that they won’t assimilate and are destroying Australian values. Presumably this means everything he believes in, like Australia’s protestant.  whiteness. To be consistent he should call the original inhabitants of this land part of the invasion, and the diggers who stood up against tyranny at the Eureka Stockade. Why not include the generations of migrants who worked to build this country? While we’re at it, let’s not forget that the First Fleet were migrant who came in a boat.

Andrew Bolt’s Australia is a myth that never existed. In the real world, all have taken part in developing something new, taking the best of each, and creating a unique and rich identity. This is a work still in progress.

What Bolt champion is a cancer, and like any disease, it requires a cure. We all have a right to speak. But this right carries a responsibility. Andrew Bolt might have the right to speak, but the Australian community has a right to be spared the damage he seeks to cause.

The cure is standing against the hate and abuse, and working together to build an accepting community.

  1. I like Andrew Bolt

      I guess people like Andrew Bolt because they live insular lives meeting no people other than “their kind” and perceive “their kind” have superior values and respect for people. Just like the way they treated the Australian aborigines with no understanding of the culture, harming children in care, outcasting unmarried mothers and recently harming innocent refugees as an example to others.

    • So you’re the one?

  2. I collect his articles for sexual pleasure. Not really. I like finding all the structural errors of his prose and his weak attempts at emotive language. It is a masochistic hobby.

  3. If Bolt comes from early white settlers was it the “British landlord class” or Sons of Irish Bailiffs, Ha Ha, try not to read anything that maggot writes.

    Andrew Bolt is a mean spirited, nasty person. I cannot believe he is still employed in mainstream journallism. Yes, I believe in free speech. I cannot recall him ever saying anything positive. The generous support of our farmers by everyday Australians shows the true Australian spirit. My definition of an Australian is anyone who calls this pkace home. We do not need anyone fuelling hate to anyone who chooses to live here. For whatever reason.

    I agree with Andrew view and his is right what he write.

  8. Bolt has always appealed to ingorant bottom-dwellers.

  9. Andrew Bolt is purely a mouthpiece for Rupert Murdoch. Whatever direction Murdoch wants to push is mouthed by bolt then followed up in the rest of his media. Thought control from the right wing.

    As a migrant from Italy who arrived here (by boat) in 1951, I find Andrew Bolt to be a bigoted, brainless, arrogant, mouthpiece for the detestable non-Australian Rupert Murdoch.

    I agree andy dolt is a bloody disgrace, he takes every opportunity to create division & hatred in the community, with his heavily biased rabid right-wing commentary, which does not qualify as journalism, just hate-speech.

  12. So standing against hate and abuse is to use your own hate and abuse back? Good work building an accepting community using that… Oh you have the right to voice your thoughts but HOW DARE YOU Exercise that right! Stop calling anything you dislike or disagree with “cancer” you are disrespectful to people who have cancer and take a mature approach by accepting the other individuals argument and refute its benefit to a common goal of encouraging cultural enrichment and social inclusion of all walks of life.

  13. Embarrassed to be white
