If you read the 9fax cancel culture™ epic trilogy and found yourself nodding along in part or whole, I ask only that you also give time to this clinical unpicking
There is a wealth of material and discussion already out there for anyone even remotely interested in learning more, so it's incredibly frustrating to see so many leading media figures uncritically laud this kind of flawed and superficial work.

What do Lauren Southern, Blair Cottrell and Avi Yemini all have in common? Well yes, that, but here is a little clue...
It's not just that they popped up on Sky News Australia, but that they absolutely juice this for everything they can. That pic was Blair's header image from the night he appeared until he was banned from Twitter. It is *still* Avi's pinned YouTube video 2+ years on.
Marketplace of ideas yada yada, so what's wrong with this?

Nothing changed after Christchurch. Andrew Bolt wrote soon after that the mass killer's racist "Great Replacement" manifesto was "in some frightening ways rational".

They might reject terrorist actions, but they don't reject the "rational" ideology that leads to them.
Nothing has changed after the storming of the Capitol, which was all apparently everybody else's fault anyway. There is zero self-reflection by the most prominent voices in this broader ecosystem.

When you have the ability to broadcast your "arrest" and donation details from the back of a police car, yet it takes almost 5 hours to be able to provide an update that you were released without charge. ImageImage

The year is 2042, post-apocalypse Earth is a charred husk, the only surviving news genre is 'trying to make ratepayers mad that public art actually costs money'.
I love this disgusting bird more than my own children.
Launching a gofundme to raise $175,000 to outbid Adelaide and bring this glorious beast to its spiritual home of Footscray, specifically Maddern Square.
