Australia Day – Celebration Of a Vassal State Day -While a True Patriot Is Left To Rot

Politics

Today is Australia Day.  The press will talk up the Australian spirit, the land of the fair go and  the larrikin Australian attitude towards authority.  There will be citizenship ceremonies and awards bestowed upon people who have given good service to the nation.   There will be barbecues, with lamb chops and beer.  Australians will wrap themselves in a flag featuring  a Union Jack .  They will shout inanities like Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi,Oi,Oi!  Some may even be coherent enough to stumble through a verse of the national anthem.

Amidst the backslapping, jingoism and drunkeness lies an emptiness and shallowness that a nation bereft of true identity and moral fibre must feel.  For Australia, despite its brash cockiness is nothing more than a vassal state of the USA incapable of protecting its citizens from the clutches of the dark forces that swirl within that country. If you have difficulty with that statement, take a moment to consider the facts surrounding Julian Assange – persona non grata to the Australian Government.

  • Julian Assange is a citizen of Australia.  As such he should be afforded all the rights, protections and comfort that any Australian citizen is entitled to.
  • Julian Assange is the editor-in-chief of Wikileaks- an organisation devoted to informing people of the truth in relation to what Governments actually do.
  • Julian Assange sought and was granted assylum with the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, following  attempts to extradite him to Sweeden to face allegations of sexual assault.  These allegations have subsequently been dropped.
  • Assange has always protested his innocence concerning the allegations and sought assylum fearing that once he was extradited to Sweeden he would be  shipped off to the USA to face unspecified charges relating to the work he does.
  • Wikileaks has a 100% accuracy record when it comes to the material that they publish.  They are not hackers – they are publishers.
  • The CIA have publicly stated that Julian Assange is a wanted man.

If the CIA do get hold of Assange, his fate will be clear.  He will become familiar with the practices of waterboarding, sleep deprivation and countless other acts of torture designed to extract every source and whistleblower that has supplied Wikeleaks with information.

Yet, successive Australian Governments of every hue have effectively sat on their hands offering neither succour nor comfort to an  Australian citizen who dares to expose and embarrass the powers that control the United States and other parts of the world, from Russia right through to the snivelling boot licking cowards in the Australian Government.

The work Wikileaks has done in exposing the spying capabilities of the CIA (Vault 7 leaks) is work deserving of national acclaim, but you wouldn’t know it if you relied upon Mainstream Media within Australia.  In fact the MSM has been criminally negligent in its defence of Assange and has played its role in perpetrating the convenient CIA/Deep State  mythical talking points that Assange is a rapist and a Russian agent.    At best Australian journalism could be excused as lazy, I prefer to use the word cowardly.

As Australians bask in their faux patriotism today, they might spend a minute contemplating what it means to be a true patriot.  How many would risk everything to let their countrymen know the truth about how the world operates? Precious few, I suspect.   The greater tragedy is that there are precious few who have even the slightest appreciation  for what Assange has done and what their government representatives refuse to do to protect him.

Perhaps, one Australia Day in the future, Julian Assange will be given the honors and respect that his work, courage, lack of respect for authority and belief in a fair go for all command.  He is in many ways the personification of what Australia would like to believe it represents. If only we could live up to his standards.

Happy Vassal State Day my fellow Australians.

No Australian is a patriot. That’s a pro-American identity thing. I think what you meant to say is that Assange lives the values our national character is attributed with.

Frankly, describing Australians generally as white, drunk louts is nothing but bigotry. Everyone else, most of us, is excluded from this description.

Many of us will protest the celebration of Australia Day as the invasion day it is and remember the heinous crimes of genocide that were begun this day and continued through a largely undocumented 150 frontier war and into the present.

We are not bereft of identity. We are simply so who we are that we’ve, generally speaking, never articulated what we are.

And that’s the first two paragraphs. PROCEED.

Australia.

Paragraph 2.2

Wikileaks range is a lot broader than that.

Paragraph 2.3

Assange was never charged in Sweden.

Paragraph 2.5

This is absolutely correct.

“Wikileaks has a 100% accuracy record when it comes to the material that they
publish.  They are not hackers – they are publishers.”

Paragraph 3 re: possible torture of Assange

Wikileaks goes to great lengths to not know who their sources are.

Amongst the hyperbole above is true indignation at the way Assange is being
treated. I concur with this.

Australia’s future is wearing a yellow vest.

As the French yellow vest movement gains strength, the Australian economy will become chained to the Trans Pacific Partnership on the 30th December 2018.   Australians will initially not notice.  They have become lulled into a soporific feel good daze that the free trade mantra induces. When they inevitably awake to …

Unredacting the FISA Warrants

Much to the consternation of the political establishment and curiously enough, MI6, Donald Trump has threatened more than once to unredact the FISA warrants that were used by the FBI to spy upon his campaign. That’s weird.  You would think that they had something to hide. Spare me the “protecting …

The latest dose of language destruction (speciesism)

At first I thought this speciesism thing was a joke. There is an article in The Independent quoting academic Shareena Hamzah from Swansea University.  Ms Hamzah foresees a time when the use of traditional idioms like “bring home the bacon” will be taboo. I laughed, and shared the article on …
