Damn the other races, want to keep my country white

Jewish organisations have expressed concerns about a hate-fest musical festival scheduled to be held in Melbourne next month.

Julie Nathan, the Research Director of The Executive Council of Australian Jewry told J-Wire: “It is of major concern that ‘Blood & Honour Australia’ (B&H) is holding a hate-fest music concert in Melbourne in October. The group refers to itself as “part of an international community of White Racialists, promoting the cause of White Resistance”. B&H is based on racist ideology, and espouses, in particular, hatred of Jews and the so-called “the Zionist-controlled media.”

Whether or not it is illegal for neo-Nazi groups such as ‘Blood & Honour Australia’ to hold their brand of “music concerts”, which are renowned for attempting to spread racist hate to a wider audience, they do cross the line when lyrics include advocating the forced deportation of people of non-European ethnicity, and the murder of those of them who object.

One of the main bands performing at the B&H concert is Fortress, which has a song Parasite with the lyrics: “Damn the other races, want to keep my country white … Send the bastards back, if they don’t f***king like it, it’ll be in body bags.”

There is a direct line between the proliferation of such ideas and the murder of Jews at synagogues in Pittsburgh and Poway in the US, and the murder of Muslims at two mosques in NZ.

All hate groups operating in Australia need to be closely monitored by government and police authorities. Any breach of the law needs to be dealt with swiftly and with maximum severity. In other jurisdictions, for example in Canada, Blood and Honour has been proscribed as a terrorist organisation, and there is a case for doing the same in Australia.

But banning such organisations, alone, is only a superficial and ultimately ineffective way of dealing with the problem.  It does not address the causes of small numbers of young males of European background being susceptible to white supremacist ideas, the mirror opposites of their jihadi counterparts.”

The Southern Cross Hammerskins’ website describes the concert as an “ISD memorial” to notorious British white supremacist musician and Blood and Honour founder, Ian Stuart Donaldson.

No location is mentioned.

The Chairman of the Anti-Defamation Commission Dvir Abramovich told media: “This is another sad reminder that the lid has been taken off the sewer and the poison of white-supremacism is seeping into our streets,” Dr Abramovich said.

“We are deeply concerned that if this concert goes ahead, it will pose a real risk to the safety of all Victorians since it may to lead to crimes being committed by people who attend this event.

    Err… don’t the lyrics of the so-called song offend against the terms of 18C?

    To my legally ignorant mind, threatening or inciting violence is against societal norms and causes anxiety among citizens and residents targetted by the hate groups.

    Instead of complaining how bad and menacing such gangs are to our society, isn’t it time that our army lawyers took the matter in hand?

    Gnashing of teath and hand-wringing while waiting for the authorities to act has served us poorly in the past.
