John Safran says Australia’s far right movement is a ‘melting pot’

Members of Australia’s far-right movement are not all white-skinned neo-Nazis, but instead from a diverse range of backgrounds, including recent migrants and evangelical Christians, writer and documentary maker John Safran says.

After attending a United Patriots Front rally in Victoria, Safran said he was surprised to see a racially diverse mix of members and he decided to delve more into the movement.

The result is his latest book, Depends What You Mean By Extremist, in which he also socialises with Islamic State sympathisers and anarchists.

“It’s quite a melting pot,” he said.

“The far right in 2017 is different to 20 years ago, when it was the first incarnation of Pauline Hanson.”

One member of the far right whom Safran said he spoke to, was the son of an Italian migrant father, an Aboriginal mother, and was married to a Vietnamese migrant.

Safran said many, including a racially diverse mix of migrants, were drawn to the far right solely because they were against Islam.

“I learnt that these immigrants often have their own backstory and their own relationship to Islam that, in this case, is totally different to the white Australian experience,” he said.

“So if you’re quite a reactionary sort of Hindu or a Sikh from India, and that’s where you came from before you migrated to Australia, you’ve got families of generations going back with their own kind of tensions with Islam back there.

“Then immigrate to Australia where there’s these strange bedfellows where they go, ‘Oh here’s these white people who also are against Islam, so I’ll join up with them’.”

‘On the back of a ute with neo-Nazis’

Safran said many of those people were then side-by-side with white nationalists.

“You get these almost surreal situations where you’ve got someone who’s got a track record of being a white nationalist or a neo-Nazi and they’re on the back of a ute and they’re calling against Islam and against multiculturalism and then joining them on the ute is an immigrant who has their own reason for why they don’t like Islam,” he said.

He said it was often a convenient pairing for the white nationalists in the movement.

“They’re very touchy about the word white nationalists — so how other people see them,” he said.

“They just say, ‘Oh well we’re just nationalists’, and sometimes they’re being sincere and sometimes it’s a cover story and they are actually white nationalists, but they like being able to deflect it a bit and say, ‘Oh but there’s a brown guy in the movement’.”

Mitt Romney, Pamela Geller, EDL’s Tommy Robinson, Robert Spencer and John Bolton
A photo montage

• Exhibit A: Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney with hate group leader Pamela Geller

Mitt Romney and Pamela Geller

About Pamela Geller:

Pamela Geller is the anti-Muslim movement’s most visible and flamboyant figurehead. She’s relentlessly shrill and coarse in her broad-brush denunciations of Islam and makes preposterous claims, such as that President Obama is the “love child” of Malcolm X. She makes no pretense of being learned in Islamic studies, leaving the argumentative heavy lifting to her Stop Islamization of America partner Robert Spencer. Geller has mingled comfortably with European racists and fascists, spoken favorably of South African racists, defended Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic and denied the existence of Serbian concentration camps. She has taken a strong pro-Israel stance to the point of being sharply critical of Jewish liberals.

Continues.

• Exhibit B: EDL’s Tommy Robinson, Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch and Pamela Geller

About Tommy Robinson:

Geller invited the notorious British anti-Muslim group English Defence League (EDL) to her September 2010 anti-mosque rally in New York. The previous May, a report by the British newspaper The Guardian revealed the EDL as thugs who hold anti-Muslim protests intended to provoke violence. Because of its racism and history, the EDL’s leader, Tommy Robinson, was denied entry at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and sent back to England.

About Robert Spencer:

Proving yet again that nothing is beneath him, anti-Muslim propagandist Robert Spencer has put himself firmly in the camp of open white nationalists with an article published yesterday in Crisis magazine, a conservative Catholic publication. Replete with fawning references to the superior accomplishments of Western culture and the Catholic Church, the piece, titled ‘Is Multiculturalism Evil?,’ proposes that Western civilization is superior to all others and that multiculturalists (aligned with ‘Islamic supremacists’) are colluding to bring it to its knees.

• Exhibit C: Mitt Romney Campaign Senior Foreign Policy Adviser John Bolton and Pamela Geller

About John Bolton:

John Robert Bolton (born November 20, 1948) is an American lawyer and diplomat who has served in several Republican administrations. Appointed on a recess appointment, he served as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from August 2005 until December 2006. He resigned in December 2006, when the recess appointment would have otherwise ended, because he was unlikely to win senate confirmation.

John Bolton and Mitt Romney

Bolton is currently a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), frequent op-ed contributor to the Wall Street Journal and the National Review, Fox News Channel commentator, foreign policy adviser to 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and of counsel to the law firm Kirkland & Ellis, in their Washington D.C. office…

The reader should be reminded of the connection between Anders Breivik and Pamela Geller. There is also a connection between Anders Brevik and Robert Spencer. Tommy Robinson’s hooliganism and right-wing extremism is notorious and too extensive to cover here. You can however find many articles covering his organization, the English Defence League, which has been covered extensively at LGF including his connection to Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer.

There is no vast conspiracy at play here. However, it should be disturbing enough that the senior foreign policy adviser to Mitt Romney, John Bolton, has the ear of anti-Islam extremist, Pamela Geller. Her connection with the EDL makes this plainly obvious. This my friends is the post-modern conservative movement, where we find odious characters in the Republican big tent whose lives are intertwined; in this case from Mitt Romney to Pamela Geller; Tommy Robinson (EDL), Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller; and most importantly, the close relationship of John Bolton and Pamela Geller.
