FRIENDS OF THE ABC

The ABC’s Media Watch received some unacknowledged assistance in composing last week’s attack piece on internet commenters. Note these June 12-13 posts from Ahmed, one of the freewheeling chuckleheads at Muslim Village:

For those who thought collecting these racist comments wasn’t going to achieve anything, watch Media Watch (ABC TV 9:15p.m est) next Monday … consider this as research and watch next Monday’s Media Watch to see the result of collecting such data.

Salaam

Ahmed

And after the program was broadcast, on June 18:

Alhamdoulillah we were able to help the Media Watch researchers with this story. So there was a great benefit to collecting these quotes. Please keep them coming.

Look at for another “interesting” story on Media Watch in the near future, Inshallah

It’s a little unfair – possibly unethical – for Media Watch not to have credited the help of their Muslim Village volunteers, don’t you think? Perhaps Media Watch was put off by the fact that many MV commenters are anonymous, although they could have used some of the contributors’ charming screen icons:

Given that Media Watch’s focus was on “prejudices”, “bigots”, and “race hate”, it may be illuminating to examine some of the comments at their new associate site:

the sky is blue. i am feeling blue. so i must be the sky. fly a few planes through me on your way to a skyscraper. superb. ijtihad at its best.

Nice.

Its about time we Muslims said it brazenly, unashamedly and proudly that YES,  … we DO want the world to be run by Islam. Violence is NOT wrong! Injustice IS!

No prejudice there.

May every Zionist be cut-off at the elbows and develop a lifelong itch in their shorts that they’re not able to scratch… damn them all

Why, it’s non-stop love at Muslim Village! Plus heartwarming olden-days fables:

Safiyyah died in 20 A.H. at the age of seventy-three. The was of Trench was fought in 5 A.H. She was therefore 58 then. These days a lady of that age is hardly able to do her domestic work. But look how Safiyyah (radhiallaho anha) goes and kills a Jew all alone.

So old, but still able to kill a Jew! There’s a lesson there for all of us. Muslim Village hopes today’s youngsters might follow her example:

i will bring my children up to believe that there is no better thing in life than to struggle in the path of God, whether its with their speech, their wallets or their hands in fighting.. and that there is no better honor than to die as a martyr.

Those taxpayer-funded geniuses at Media Watch have somehow overlooked a motherlode of internet-comment rage here; all of it moderated, too.

when a Palestinian dies fighting for their freedom, their abode will be Jannah. When a Zionist dies oppressing a fellow human being, their abode will be the hell fire. And that is where they belong.

They really don’t like “Zionists”.

We have no room for Zionist sympathisers in our hearts nor any respect for them and what they think or feel.

Sometimes commenters at Muslim Village ditch “Zionist” and use another noun:

our prophet has prophesised that eventually every single Jew will be eliminated from the face of this earth by the Muslims, after a major war between us and them (kafirs) … and the Messenger of Allah says nothing but the truth. Just a matter of time I guess.

Every so often, MV commenters venture opinions that might be thought “redneck” by Media Watch were they to appear at conservative sites:

• My store got robbed like 3 -4 months ago one of my managers got stabbed… and guess wat it was leboes!!!They spoke in arabic to top it off and the manager there was lebo as well they are soo stupid sometimes i swear they did it all for a few hundred dollars.

• I am against the Death Penalty…except when it comes to peadophiles…but they should be tortured first…very very slowly…then butchered!

• why is there such outrage to the Hamas Mickey Mouse when it’s simply a propoganda tool and it’s a technique used by several countries in the past (including the US). Here’s an example, i once watched a bugs bunny cartoon where he was fighting against Hitler. It portrayed Hitler as an incompetent fool and was very offensive to Nazis.

Anyway, let’s look forward to Muslim Village’s next Media Watch contribution – once they’ve unchained themselves:

I got Idea Why dont be chain Outside the Dailytelegraph Office or the Office of ACMA until they hear us

(Via the Zapper in comments – wicked, awful comments.)

UPDATE. Media Watch takes credit for MV’s work:

The examples selected were those we could find. Similar hate posts against other groups would have been considered. We didn’t find them on these sites, but would welcome submissions from viewers if they have them.

(Via Ripclawe)

UPDATE II. News.com.au reports:

The ABC’s Media Watch is fighting claims of hypocrisy after its website published anti-Semitic comments mocking the Holocaust and claiming a Jewish conspiracy …

When asked about the racist comments, Mr Palmer told The Daily Telegraph: “You’re easily shocked.”

While admitting the comments were inappropriate, he said Media Watch was “caught by surprise by the sheer volume” of emails to the site last week.

There were two contentious comments. The first – shown unedited in an update here – went up within twenty minutes of last week’s broadcast, presumably in advance of any huge number of responses.

Mr Palmer claimed the posts remained on the website for a “few minutes” before being taken down.

Not so; the first comment remained unaltered for several hours. The second hasn’t been removed at all.

So MW gets a whole lot of attention directed to the “hateful”, “racist” commenters of Tim Blair, who then reveals – through the awesome work of Zapper – who it was who sicced MW on us and the nuggets of tolerant, winsome joy these charmers are posting. Which means that MW can either acknowledge this, since they’ve sent their viewers here where they will see this interesting new information; or, they can do a separate segment on the “hate speech” found at their new associates’ site; or, they can just ignore this and hope it goes away quietly.

      I bet they’ll opt for #3.

      1907
      So I sit and write and ponder, while the house is deaf and dumb,
      Seeing visions “over yonder” of the war I know must come.
      In the corner – not a vision – but a sign for coming days
      Stand a box of ammunition and a rifle in green baize.
      And in this, the living present, let the word go through the land,
      Every tradesman, clerk and peasant should have these two things at hand.
      No – no ranting song is needed, and no meeting, flag or fuss –
      In the future, still unheeded, shall the spirit come to us!
      Without feathers, drum or riot on the day that is to be,
      We shall march down, very quiet, to our stations by the sea.
      While the bitter parties stifle every voice that warns of war,
      Every man should own a rifle and have cartridges in store

    1. We can’t*, Jack, that’s why they’re so brazen. Our laws (and the West’s post-Enlightenment nature) won’t permit it—the Islamists are exploiting our system of justice and the ingrained tolerance of our society as a weakness.

      Personally speaking, I’d like to trade our Islamists for their Apostates and other non-Muslims who are being persecuted in Muslim countries.

      *not unless they set off a nuke… and that’s what it would probably take.

    1. It’s obvious that Media Watch is trying to use the threat of legal action to silence those whose opinions they don’t like.

      If they can use a combination of:  their state sanctioned media outlet (the ABC), the Racial Discrimination Act, and the power of the Australian government to force people not to make anti-Islamic statements (or whatever it is they’re against this week) then pretty soon you’ll have a media that’s 100% under the control of the sort of people who run Media Watch.  And, of course, once they have the power, guys like Palmer will be free to say whatever they please, as will their pets (like Sheik Hilaly or those good ol’ boys at Muslim Village) while you’ll be looking at legal action if you have the temerity to say what you think.

      Better act now to get rid of crap like the Racial Discrimination Act and government owned media like the ABC…or before too many more years you won’t have any freedom of the press whatsoever.

    1. From a moderator message on Media Watch message board.

      Media Watch did not call for anything to be banned. It raised the issue of the enormous difference between what is tolertaed in print and online by some newspapers and similar differences between different newspapers websites. It also outlined what laws currently pertain to this kind of publishing.

      The examples selected were those we could find. Similar hate posts against other groups would have been considered. We didn’t find them on these sites, but would welcome submissions from viewers if they have them

      They were very selective or they are backtracking.

You mean MediaWatch trawled local Muslims for complaints it could act on, like the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board under Chris Puplik trawled local Muslims for complaints it could act on after 911, as did the VCAT with its set up of Catch the Fire Ministries?  Surely no tax-funded public institutions would partisanly solicit the perceptions of one segment of the population, with all the subjective and vested interest responses that would result, ahead of another yet not be open and accountable about it? That would be … unethical.

Looking at some of the contributions to this MV website, it makes for an interesting insight, when you see the primitive mindset of these people, plus their spelling and diction make for a damn good read, or a good constipation cure. One question, how cheap is Australian citizenship?, when in today’s news, some of these rabble, with our citizenship status, were killed or caught fighting for Hezbollah.
      Second question, how many more of this lot will be representing Australia overseas and be permitted diplomatic representation by Australia when they are captured?

      Yes interesting, those are my thoughts too.  I wonder if this is similar to the hounds running loose May Helou style as pointed out by Andrew Bolt.

      Well perhaps not quite because May Helou was hired by the Victorian government to ensure “Arabic and Muslim communities are aware of their rights under anti-discrimination laws” and give “support to people wishing to make a complaint” and she sure did just that trampling truth and free speech for her cause.

      So just who are the staff at Media Watch and what are their allegiances?

    1. No link yet unfortunately, but the Daily Telegraph has struck back at Media Watch today, citing the infamous MW approved post:

      The only understanding I can make is that MediaWatch carries the torch for Globalism and maybe even Zionist groups as they are known to push Hate Speech laws so they can’t be questioned themselves in crime. ABC is starting to show a disproportionate number of Jews in the places of power in the ABC.

      Tim Palmer is quoted as saying this post was left on the site for “a few minutes” before being taken down.

      I strongly suspect that he of the five strapping sons has stretched the truth here to snapping point. My recollection is that it remained up for hours – even after it was pointed out at this site. If I’m wrong, surely the Palm-meister has the records to prove it.

      If he has lied about this, how can the ABC keep him on as the gatekeeper of honesty in the media?

      On the other hand, Whale Spinor’s comment lasted a matter of minutes, despite having nothing offensive in it whatsoever. However it was removed very swiftly because it contained a sly reference to Palmer’s distasteful comment posted at the Bunyip about prostate cancer. This would have passed over the heads of the vast majority of readers.

      Simple conclusion: Palmer is too much driven by personal vendettas and is not suitable for the job.

      “If one commits an act of sodomy with a cow, a ewe, or a camel, their urine and their excrements become impure, and even their milk may no longer be consumed. The animal must then be killed as quickly as possible and burned, and the price of it paid to its owner by him who sodomized it.”

    1. Been reading Muslim Village’s forum for longer than here. Can’t recall how I found it.

      If you could sum up these pathetic little arseholes, it is clear that most are young, late teens and early 20s, and hang at the Lakemba Mosque. There is a prevailing view that 9/11 was an American conspiracy AND Osama Bin Laden is a hero for masterminding 9/11.

      This contradiction comes about because the Muslim Villagers believe Muslims are unfairly blamed for acts of terrorism while at the same time believing there should be jihad against the infidels.

      So they flip-flop. Terror suspects get arrested and there are howls of protest at Muslim Village as the “brothers and sisters” (note the black American cultural adaptation) complain that Muslims are being unfairly targeted by police. But after a few dozen posts out come the threats of what will happen to these infidels when Islam rules the world.

      It is not as if Media Watch needed to do more to lower its reputation but allying itself with a little hotbed of Islamic fundamentalism is a stupid and dangerous thing to do.

    1. Some things to consider about Muslim Village

      The site requires no registration to view comments. That is, it is not underground or in any way private. It is the public, unrestricted warts-n-all view of the opinion of mostly Australian Muslims.

      Can you even imagine what is being said in private?

      The comments are not exceptional. They are frequent and are rarely opposed by other presumably “moderate” readers. In other words there is tacit acceptance of them.

      Perhaps Media Watch was put off by the fact that many MV commenters are anonymous, although they could have used some of the contributors’ charming screen icons

      Can you imagine if Media Watch tried to use one of their typically camp novelty voices?

It sounds like Media Watch allowed itself to be a tool in applying pressure on conservative blogs like Tim Blair’s in accordance with a plan by Muslim Village.  That is very unacceptable for an association that publicizes itself as an objective reviewer of inappropriate journalism.  In effect, they participated in a plan of bias.

    1. #34 It takes a Muslim Village to raze a child.

      Sadly yes in some parts of the world.

      Irf (who has his own vendetta against Tim and the Daily Telegraph) made a commenton my blog which exposes the agenda here (by his own definition of racism – which I think he got from the NSW Race Discrimination Act):

      Actually, for many people, being Muslim is an essential part of their ethnic identity. For instance, in the Malaysia, being Malay and being Muslim go hand-in-hand. Hence when Malays leave the Islamic faith, they lose the privileges that legally accrue to Malays.

      Also, in Bosnia, there are three ethnic groups – Serbs, Croats and Muslims.

      To claim that Islam is a religion and therefore Muslims can be vilified for being Muslims is a cop-out. If someone wants to criticise or even lampoon Islam, they can be my guest. In this post-religion age, all religious can be attacked. But to vilify certain people because of some presumed cultural trait arising from their deemed cultural Islam is racism pure and simple.

      Which makes me think the suggestion above about Racial Discrimination Acts is a good one.  Race-usually defined by genetic of biological ancestry-is misinformed and outdated (we are all humans end of story)- and remains purely a social construct.

      Other definitions of ‘race’ in RD acts – eg ethnic groups – are also dubious and are subject to manipulation for malicious ends as we are seeing here.  They are being used as a cover for “blasphemy” type laws.

    1. Thanks Dave S. and Dylan Kissane.

      Since this post brings some attention to me, I want to emphasize that my handle, “Muzzie Zapper”, is just a lame play on “Mozzie Zapper”. Although some might see in it violent overtones, none are intended. (I think I was so drunk when I joined that I was incapable of any intent.) Anyway, I am changing my handle to Irrational Number (Beat that 1.618 hehe.)

      Correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems to be usual for nearly any thread on this site, that once a heap of attention as been dumped on the subject(s) listed in the lead post, things sort of evolve into general socializing and goofing off.

      If it’s a running issue (covered over a couple or more threads) then it tends to evolve that much faster.

      (for new readers of Tim Blair, this previous burn would be their failure to cover the Hezbollah ambulance hoax. Hezbollah staged some photos then used them to falsely claim that Israel was targeting ambulances.
      The photos are now utterly discredited,

    1. #160 Depends on how you define Islamic state.

      There is widespread support of Kemalism in Turkey (and Kemalism is not based on Islamic principles) but it relies on the army to enforce it because there is a stronger support for a full Islamic state.

      And you only have to consider the fate and restrictions on Christians in Turkey, Muslim apostates (as opposed to nominal Muslims) and Turkish Muslim converts to Christianity to wonder how easy it is to leave Islam in Turkey.

      Here’s the simple rule of thumb: no freedom to apostasize (from any religion), no religious freedom. No religious freedom, no freedom.

      However, in the context of last week’s MW, where he criticised the lack of moderation on timblair.net, Palmer has exposed himself as a hypocite.
      Whenever he removed the offensive comment is irrelevant, as it was already moderated before it was allowed to appear.

      It must have been deemed acceptable until it started generating too much grief.

My friend probably would not understand my stance and where I live has a very small population of English speaking foreigners, including many lefties and at least one muslim. If I’m going to cause friction, I’ll save it for a more meaningful situation. (I did tell a particularly self-righteous lefty of the student politics variety to fuck off last Friday night. I was worried about climate change from the cloud of smug she was generating – something she kept doing despite many hints that her behaviour was not facilitating pleasant socialization.) As for not traveling to muslim countries, well, among other reasons, Malaysia and its bumiputra system was enough to put me off that.

    1. Oh, gosh, el cid (171), did you get that from one of my very favorite ethnic jokes?

      An Irish immigrant lady discovers she has ‘female problems’ and goes to the doctor.  The doctor examines her and then says, “Mrs. O’Reilly, go home, drink a lot of water, save a sample, and return with it tomorrow.”

      Well, Mrs. O’Reilly has no idea what the doctor is talking about, so when she returns home she goes next door to speak to Mrs. Curran.

      Soon all the neighbors hear a terrible caterwauling and noises of things being thrown and damage being done.  The call the police.  Within minutes, a carful of police and the paddy wagon show up.

      The sergeant, O’Brien, separates the two women and asks, “Faith and begorrah, you two have been friends for more than 20 years.  What brought you to this pitiful state?”

      The two women eye each other warily, and finally Mrs. O’Reilly says, “I told her the doctor said to bring him a sample and asked her what I should do.  She said ‘piss in a bottle.’  I said, ‘shit in your hat’ and the fight was on.”

    1. Worth re-posting:

      ABC chief hints at Media Watch review:

      Along the lines of Insiders: “a great example” as it “really does allow that range and plurality of views to be heard … and it doesn’t suggest in its style that there is one view that is right.”

      Long overdue.

      Yech. No wonder I don’t like either. I’d only drink Sarsparilla to guarantee Infidel Tiger a Media Watch appearance, though I think he should make it on merit.

    1. Root Beer. Amazing it’s not more popular in Oz, sounds almost like the perfect product. I’m still working on Root Beer Cigarette Taxi Home, which would be the perfect product.

    1. Two thoughts on the “paco” issue:
      * Tim played along with it in a post.
      * It’d be a very dry body of comments if people withheld a comment because someone might find it annoying/immature/distracting.

    1. #214 I’d give you one, Sir Pogria, but my mother would be awfully upset if I dug one of hers up.

      I see her point. I can’t grow anything, so I shouldn’t be insanely jealous of those who can.

    1. #216 I think the Paco issue lightens the tone of this blog that isn’t already lightened by us taking the piss out of everything.

      I don’t see it as a problem. Simply skip reading a post if you don’t like it.

    1. #228 She was trying to convince me to go back to him because “he’s a good kid and he wasn’t trying to hurt me and he’s always been there for me and it’s for the good of the baby if I stay with him”.

      She clearly misses the fact that it’s because of the good of the baby that I couldn’t possibly stay with him even if I wanted to. I know there’s something about the whole situation that I don’t know, but I’m too scared to find out what it is that I don’t know.

      I have the rather fortunate luck that, mostly, the lefties I associate with are the centre-left ones, and so they’re pretty tame. No Damians, Traceeees or Leunigs for me.

    1. #239 That’s what I’m willing to go with. They all lied to me in one way or another, if Jesse isn’t even his real name. They called him that, and never said it was just a nickname or anything.

      The major problem I’ve got is, if he’s using a false name, which he is, then what did he do to make him want/need to use a false name? Does he have a criminal record? If so, what’s it for? The rest of his lies, I can deal with, slowly. But his name, I can’t get past that one.
