#8: Andrew Bolt

Andrew Bolt is a complete arse. Racist, sexist, homophobic, fascist, smug, private school fuckhead. He’s a voice of idiocy, denial, bigotry and the most malignant kind of stupidity unfortunately tolerated in society. The only difficulty with freedom of speech is having to listen to cunts like Bolt. However, the truly frightening things are that he is paid for the social cancer that is his opinion and that the previous government placed so much stock in him. The fuckers quoted him like he was Jesus, only an evil, fear-monger Jesus.

For those of you unfamiliar with his work here’s a snapshot of Boltworld:

  • Global warming is a fiction invented by hippies and malcontents.
  • The Stolen Generation (a holocaust for indigenous Australians) never happened.
  • The war in Iraq has already been won –yeah, by the U.S.A et al.
  • It’s all those non-white people who are the real racists and we should treat them with fear and suspicion if they can’t easily be subjugated.
  • Gay marriage is the same as polygamy.
  • Finding Nemo is preaching dangerous nonsense to our children – this is a personal favourite.

Let me frame this by saying Andrew Bolt is a professional columnist and associate editor for Rupert Murdoch’s Herald Sun newspaper. Now, I’m not a journalist, I’m just an angry bastard, but I’d like to think that on my good days at least I make some sense. Bolt’s writing has no journalistic integrity, he works back from pre-decided conclusions and then beats or cooks the facts into a shape where they appear to prove said conclusions. Even at the expense of logic. He won’t even allow negative comment on his blog site, difference of opinion is just too challenging – racism and idiocy is fine but genuine criticism is off-limits.

For a taste of Bolt’s own wankery go here.

For articulate and dedicated criticism of Bolt go here.

For me, it’s Sunday and I’m going to leave you with this: Andrew Bolt is a psychological terrorist and he should be sent to Guantanamo Bay and water-boarded. In another time he’d have been a Nazi sympathiser, he wouldn’t have had the stomach for hands-on fascism but he’d have been happy to be a propagandist or to turn on the gas in the showers. Feel free to say whatever you like about the article or me – I don’t give a fuck – Bolt’s a twat, his continued popularity simply demonstrates that there’s no shortage of ignorance in this country!
