If you would like to be involved or support the upkeep and further development of this site, it would be very welcome no matter how small.

HAPPY FANS, so why the searches?

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


One hundred years of an Aussie Friday tradition is underway in Melbourne with finalists Sydney Swans’ and Hawthorn Hawks’ supporters, numbering ten thousand, all enjoying a sunny Friday. Not a word of abuse, no scuffles, no death threats just a joyful appreciation of a fine Aussie tradition. 

At the same time another demonstration is being arranged during Friday prayers in dozens of mosques across Melbourne. And guess who’s looking for trouble, the Aussie Rules followers or the followers of Islam?

Tomorrow at the MCG unprecedented searches will be made of each of the hundred thousand patrons. 

Searches that were once never a part of our sporting venues. Is there a suspicion that some Swans’ supporters might be intent on killing some Hawks’ supporters? No, not really, the suspects are actually those people who have no interest in the Hawks or the Swans, it’s those people who have an interest in killing the patrons.

If there was no suspicion of that, then there would surely be no searches... but this is the way Islam is slowly but surely changing our lives, we now need to be suspicious of two per cent of people we welcomed into our happy-go-lucky sport crazy communities. 

That two per cent is imposing its will on 98 per cent and the Left, including un-Australian people like the Greens and the ABC, are avid supporters of that two per cent. 

Whenever an Islamic atrocity occurs the Left springs to the defence of the perpetrator. Now why is that?

Fruit loop Green gopher, Christine Milne was this morning given 15 minutes on national TV to explain how evil-minded Tony Abbott was attempting to protect Australians from Islamic atrocities. 

Islamic leader, Sheikh Ustadh Mohammed Sumbugger, when referring to the shooting of terror suspect Abdul Numan Haider said:

“We must not forget that he (Haider) was nothing but an average teenager who once again fell victim to police brutality and murder.”

“Average teenager?” “victim?” “police brutality?” “murder?”

What exactly are the Imams preaching this sunny Friday arvo in those mosques across Melbourne... and where the hell is the Left media?


As an atheist, I can't see any sense in any religions. We grow up to realise that Santa Claus and the tooth fairy are just invented for children. Yet fully grown adults still swallow the ridiculous notion of a super-man that made the world and everything in it with his bare hands out of nothing, yet he needed a rib from Adam to make Eve. There are some Jewish sects that argue that the earth is only 10000 years old and we're supposed to respect that because it's their RELIGION. There's the line that thou shalt not kill yet people who claim to deeply religious kill all the time and say it is commanded by God. Go and boil your heads you loonies.

good call.

I am constantly amazed at the left and their love in with a culture that will put to death gays and lesbians and treat women as mere chattel, If the Christian community had similar views imagine the outcry.

Yes and Muslim looking men have been door knocking defence houses and suburbs where ADF personnel reside. They are already sussing out residential areas. Defence personnel have been warned against wearing uniforms in public WTF!! This happened when Senator Robert Ray was the defence minister (Labor, Hawke) and Gulf war 1 was on. A Defence person (Male) was dragged out his car and bashed when stopped at the lights on his way to work. By wait for it, Mediteranean looking males! This is obscene and topsy turvey world stuff! Are we in Australia or what? Then we have our tax payer funded ABC siding with these thugs and murderers! What a joke this country is. The security level has been raised to Charlie. AFP armed guards now guard Fed Parliament! As they should be.

I agree

I will accept and embrace Islam here, as I have accepted and embraced all from across the globe, but only after it has ceased to be a religion of atrocious evil.

Thanks TD but why are you constantly playing down serious flaws in Muslims and Islam? Everyone knows that Muslim men were overwhelmingly responsible for this vile abuse and were the ultimate reason it was covered up. People are afraid to criticise for PC reasons and so the problems are perpetuated. Personally, I will not surrender to the notion that Islamic culture is equal and acceptable here. Whether it be their attitudes towards women, forced marriage of girls, FGM, death for gays, Sharia and non-separation of Church and State, not recognising Israel, and that constant cry of oppression and victimhood that is used to justify Jihad. I fundamentally disagree with everything Islam represents and this proves my decency. Wearing the PC blindfold could never provide me with comfort.

You must be very busy, rushing around the world, boots on the ground, cross examining heads of State and the leaders of the various terrorist cells. Don't let those of us who are prepared to delegate keep you.

well said Enuff

Little do the French know these muslims are actually talking about them.

“The Terrorists R Us.” The Islamic State “Big Lie”

The Criminalization of the United Nations

....Several US allies including Jordan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar which are currently involved in supporting ISIL and Al Nusrah are now involved in the US sponsored air raids allegedly targeted against the ISIL inside Syria.
Turkey and Jordan have borders with Syria. Saudi Arabia and Turkey have borders with Iraq. The direct military involvement of these countries points to a scenario of escalation and sectarian warfare extending from the Mediterranean to Central Asia......

Best choke ever!

Could this be part of the reason for the two ill fated Malaysian passenger aircraft?

An El-Al flight from New York to Tel Aviv was turned into an “11-hour nightmare” after hundreds of ultra-Orthodox Jewish passengers refused to sit next to women.

According to those on board the flight descended into chaos because of their demands.

The flight was full with Israelis, secular, orthodox and ultra-Orthodox Jews – known as Haredim – flying home to celebrate Rosh Hashanah.

More to the point, thank you Larry, for your consistent thinking.

Congratulations Larry, on your consistent lucid thinking.

Illuminati Planning Another Financial Crash?

Has he been taken into "Protective Custody" by Child Services? Have the parents been charged with "Corrupting the Morals of a Minor?" Has the local Imam been charged with radicalising a minor? Has anybody done anything at all?
I didn't think so! The little bastard will be holding up a severed head outside the Lakemba Mosque next!
