A HUMILIATED Kevan Gosper has accused the International Olympic Committee of betrayal, condemning the world sporting body for striking a secret deal with China to censor the international media during the Beijing Games.
A red-eyed and crestfallen Gosper, a senior IOC member for 31 years, told The Australian that both his reputation and that of the controversy-plagued IOC had been seriously dented by China’s decision to restrict internet access for journalists covering the Games.
Surely no one ever believed that a communist country would give free reign to foreign journalists or give way on human rights issues.
How much is buck passing and how much was anticipated before hand we’ll never know but one thing is for sure – I don’t believe that the IOC believed what the communists were telling them and they gave the games to Beijing for reasons of their own.
Maybe it will force China into softening, there may be a positive but I really think we are about to be hit with mobs of communist propaganda.
Over the next few weeks I think I’ll stay away from tabloid TV more than I normally do.
Angela Davis, ex Black Panther and rabid communist has been invited to speak at the West Australia’s Harmony Week run by the Office of Multicultural Interests
There are many articles on Angela that brush over her time on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list and trial where all charges were dropped but this one doesn’t
In 1970 Davis was implicated by more than 20 witnesses in a plot to free her imprisoned lover, fellow Black Panther George Jackson, by hijacking a Marin County, California courtroom and taking hostage the judge, the prosecuting assistant district attorney, and two jurors. In an ensuing gun battle outside the court building, Judge Harold Haley’s head was blown off by a sawed-off shotgun owned by Ms. Davis. To avoid arrest for her alleged complicity in the plot, Ms. Davis fled California, using aliases and changing her appearance to avoid detection.
Two months later Davis was arrested by the FBI in New York City. At her 1972 trial, Davis presented her version of where she had been and what she had been doing at the time of the shootout. Because she was acting as her own attorney, she could not be cross-examined. She presented a number of alibi witnesses, almost all Communist friends, who testified that she had been with them in Los Angeles playing Scrabble at the time of the Marin slaughter. Prosecution witnesses who placed her in Marin were dismissed by Davis and her fellow attorneys as being unable to accurately identify blacks — because they were white.
What is it with Multiculturists that they pay this woman big money to speak? Charges may have been dropped but there are enough questions left to bar her entry to Australia.
In my ongoing fight against communism I note my blog is blocked by the Chinese authorities but every day I get calls on Skype from Chinese citizens wanting to chat.
Get that up ‘ya China.

Gradually we’ll wear them down.
From Tramtown (where does he get the time to find all these obscure sites?)
Senator Kerry campaigns for the Republicans as he reminds the US that the Democrats come with left wing garbage.
Senator Kerry is a decorated war veteran who served in Vietnam. He said people were “crazy” to think he would denigrate America’s 140,000 personnel serving in Iraq.
Maybe people are crazy and are ready to believe that Kerry would insult servicemen because that’s what he does. Since he first come on the radar screen in the early 70s his stock and trade has been to dispage his own countrymen and curry favour with their enemies.
Kerry in 2006 addressing a rally;
You know, education–if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.
Kerry in 1971 addressing a Senate Inquiry;
They [US servicemen in Vietnam] had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the country side of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.
But as we know, Kerry is also a a man of action. He went to North Vietnam and helped the communists secure leverage in the Paris Peace Talks.
This from a guest at the Hanoi Hilton during the Vietnam war;
I was a POW for nearly six years, held in North Vietnam prison camps, including the notorious Hanoi Hilton, a place of unimaginable horrors — torture, beatings, starvation and mind-numbing isolation. When Kerry branded us “war criminals,” he handed our captors all the justification they needed to carry out their threats to execute us. Thanks to Kerry, Jane Fonda and their comrades in the anti-war movement, our captivity was prolonged by years. The communists in Hanoi and Moscow couldn’t have had a better press agent to spread their anti-American propaganda.
And this from Opinion Journal;
Kerry’s apology isn’t really an apology at all. Here’s a shorter summary of it:
1. What I said wasn’t really what I said.
2. I’m sorry if you misinterpreted what I was saying by taking it at face value.
3. Republicans suck.
Why it is so hard just to say, “I’m sorry for what I said”?
I trust we can get quotes from Kerry everyday from now until the mid-term US elections. It may help to remind Americans that this is what the Democrats think of the US military. Every house has a veteran and the main-steam America treats them honourably, unlike Kerry.
Conclusion: By interfering, the USA was responsible in causation for the deaths of (correction 3)–5.1 million Vietnamese, give or take a few.
So endeth the sermon by Peter at Lavartus Prodeo. Argueing from a lawyers viewpoint he posts an article with the sole purpose of sheeting the blame for an inflated casualty rate on the US. I have just attended a reunion of the 7th Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment at Fremantle in Western Australia and can only express amazement at Peter’s naivity, or is it blinded ignorance?
On the Indian Pacific a fellow traveller asks me why I was going to Perth, I mention the reunion and he says ah yes, Vietnam…such a waste. I enlighten him and for the first time in his lifer he thinks beyond the 10 second audio visual bites he was fed on the evening news. I tell him we who fought it don’t think it a waste. At the very least we stemmed the flow of the scourge of communism for a decade and depleted the coffers of the USSR and Communist China to such an extent that the events that lead to the fall of the Berlin War were set in train.
Millions escaped after the fall of Saigon by boat, by plane, by anything that would remove them from the hell that was coming. Millions didn’t.
Lefties still mintain the soft view of Ho Chi Minh that portays him as a nationalist with his only intention being to rid Vietnam of the French and later, the US, when from day one he was a marxist, schooled by the Soviets to take over both South and North Vietnam to form a communist bastion in the east.
To view a ten year war through the statutes of law seems a strange approach to me. I see men in suits arguening the case but the backdrop, the rear wall of the court room, is enscribed with millions of names of men who died and all Peter can do is argue for the aggressors. The communists invaded; the Free World forces tried to defend.
Maybe Peter was around when the war was on but somehow I doubt it. I was there and went back a couple of years ago to view first hand the results of 30 plus years of communism. The economy has been comatozed for decades and is just showing some life now the old Marxists are dying and losing power. Yet the people have a shadow over them of the millions who have disappeared or are still alive but shattered by re-education camps. Over the road from the bar I frequented a family lives on the profit from selling a dozen or so soft drinks per day…..in 2004.
How can educated men defend this?
School, Uni, Law School, employment with Smith, Smith and Smith, see the world through a law book. Never touch the dead just count them and use the stats to put a fallacious arguement.
Makes it all worthwhile, doesn’t it?
Reader Pete Munro from Perth emails me this morning.
Just wondering if you had heard anything of a rumour that “Hanoi” Jane Fonda has been invited to host a luncheon at the Brisbane Convention Centre on November 11th?
Rumour started on a military forum I belong to, but I can’t find anything online about it.
Well I did and she is coming to Brisvegas and is hosting a lunch for the Courier Mail Book Club
Armed with this info I penned an email to the Courier Mail team and wait for their reply
The Courier-Mail BAM Bookclub
I note Jane Fonda is booked to appear at the Convention Centre via the auspices of the CM Book Club on 11 November, 2005 – the day when the sacrifice of Veterans is commemorated. As I’m sure you are aware, Jane is a very contentious lady amongst the Veteran community and I have already received emails and tele calls re the timing of her appearance. The editor of the CM printed a letter from Bernie McGurgan in today’s CM on the subject and I will be posting on the subject in due course in my blog, http://www.kevgillett.net.
I would like to think that the timing is due to factors other than it being aimed at the Veteran community although I recall last year on 11 November the CM carried an anti-defence piece by Luke McIlveen. I posted an article on that occasion and would like to think that the Courier Mail doesn’t have a bias against veterans and that the timing of this event is not part of a programme to denigrate Veterans. The article I wrote last years is here
Few Veterans would argue that Jane Fonda has the right to be heard. I have no problem with that but I do have a problem with the timing.
Could you please reassure me and my readers that the timing is coincidental and neither scheduled to maximize controversy nor aimed at denigrating Veterans.
Kevin J Gillett,
Should you want to email the Editors of the Courier Mail, the list is here. Tammy Concannon’s email address is email@example.com.
Be polite now…you hear!
Every now and then I think it relevant to remind ourselves just how bad communism was and how many of their people suffered under it’s yoke.
Damien Perry has a post about a new book on Mao Tse Dung that suits the purpose.
Famine apart, the authors calculate that deaths in prisons and labour camps over Mao’s years from 1949 totalled some 27 million. In the ten years of the Great Purge (1966–76) that came with the Cultural Revolution, at least three million people died violent deaths outside prison. Post-Mao leaders have stated that 100 million people (one-ninth of the entire population) suffered in one way or another during that period.
1966-76. Now let’s see. Who, of all of our Prime Ministers, was it that couldn’t wait to get into bed with these bastards.
Oh yes. Comrade Whitlam.
It was only recently that the “Communist Manifesto” by Marx and Engels was voted as the most harmful book printed during the 19th and 20th century.
I have to agree.
This letter in todays Australian serves to highlight another reason to recall the embarrassment of being an Australian when Whitlam was in power
Last days of Saigon still linger
04 May 2005
RODNEY Dalton’s article (“Pain lingers for deserted four – fall of Saigon: 30 Years On”, 30/4) recites, without comment, unfounded and hurtful criticisms of my late father, Geoffrey Price, the last Australian ambassador to South Vietnam.
My father, as Australia’s ambassador, was obeying direct and specific instructions from the Australian government, which he had bitterly but unsuccessfully disputed over the preceding days, in not evacuating the Australian embassy’s 55 Vietnamese staff on the RAAF Hercules sent to evacuate the other few remaining Australian staff and him. He certainly was not loading the aircraft with his personal possessions or any pets during the scramble on that day.
In an article The Australian ran on the 25th anniversary of the fall of Saigon in April, 2000, Stuart Rintoul reported my father’s enduring sense of shame at the way Australia abandoned all but one of its locally engaged Vietnamese embassy staff, together with many other Vietnamese at risk of being punished by the incoming North Vietnamese for their associations with Australia. I can confirm that my father’s shame at Australia’s petty betrayal of Vietnamese colleagues who had worked alongside him for many months did remain with him until the day he died.
Bellevue Hill, NSW
Whitlam wouldn’t have anything to do with ‘those f**king Vietnamese Balts’, as he put it at, least not with the ones from the South. Stuart Rintoul, of course would blame the military, or the Diplomatic Corps, or the Ambassador, or the…..well , anyway, anyone but Whitlam.
May Day, an old celebration of spring (in the northern hemisphere) has progressed through to a day for radicals to stick it up the bosses and conservative governments. Once, all of society took part in the celebrations with Maypoles and their promise of new love and fertility being enjoyed by all. This enjoyment being enhanced when the Catholic Church, amongst other social engineers, banned the day.
Rosa Luxemburg claims the modern idea of May Day and anarchy all started in Australia
The happy idea of using a proletarian holiday celebration as a means to attain the eight-hour day was first born in Australia. The workers there decided in 1856 to organize a day of complete stoppage together with meetings and entertainment as a demonstration in favor of the eight-hour day. The day of this celebration was to be April 21. At first, the Australian workers intended this only for the year 1856. But this first celebration had such a strong effect on the proletarian masses of Australia, enlivening them and leading to new agitation, that it was decided to repeat the celebration every year.
Don’t you just love the proletarian masses of Australia?
If it started in Australia, the Americans, in their more robust approach to anarchy. took the eight-hour day and broadened it to include mayhem.
The new idea of Mayday, captured by radical workers, was celebrated in the US in 1886 when someone, most probably a radical worker, exploded a bomb amongst the crowd, killing eight. The modern May Day was born as both a legitimate ideal (the eight hour day) and as a platform for radicalism.
At Socialist Worker On Line they brazenly discuss how the bomb was most probably thrown by a radical, killing and maiming cops but it was OK because, after all they were cops and represented the mongrel bosses. I might add the cops had ‘without warning, … opened fire at the workers, killing four and injuring many more’ Maybe the fact that literally thousands of workers were busy attacking them had some bearing on this.
At The Green Left Weekly they conveniently forget to mention the bomb thrown by the more radical of the workers but hey, I’m not surprised.
On May 1, 1886, Chicago workers led by the American Federation of Labor struck for an eight-hour working day. The capitalist response was to have the police harass the workers, trying to intimidate them. Three days later, workers peacefully rallied in Haymarket Square in defiance of the harassment, only to be fired upon by the police with several killed. Four of the workers’ leaders were executed by the capitalist courts on November 11, 1887.
It was anything but a peaceful rally.
May Day has long been a focal point for demonstrations by various communist, socialist, and anarchist groups culminating in the USSR rebadging it as Workers Solidarity Day and parading millions of men and a stupifying amount of miltary hardware every year to put the wind up the Western World. I often wondered what the grumpy old men on the balconies were discussing. Maybe their Gulag figures…stats are good, Joe told me he has murdered over a million this year
And in Berlin, for example;
…the Berlin May Day rioting has become less overtly political and more oriented towards generally destructive behavior by individuals with little interest in politics, though political demonstrators are still a factor.
The socialists in London rebadged May Day as the International Workers Day and they claim the first such event was held in London in 1890. Everybody claims to be first to be the most radical
In Australia, thousands of workers (out of a workforce of 10 million) flocked to May Day rallies across Australia on Sunday to protest against the Howard government’s planned industrial relations reforms.
May Day has come a long way from the hopes of new growth and love in springtime to the anarchy it generally offers today.
Still, it gives the ABC something to work on for their anti-Howard programme.
A lifetime ago I fought in Vietnam as an Aussie Infantryman. I did so because I believed communism was evil and wanted to do what I could to stop it’s spread. Over my life I have been continually bemused and confused by the likes of Phillip Adams and cohorts who never saw any evil and still today believe it is the answer to the worlds problems.
I submit that it is a therapeutic, every so often, to remind ourselves about the horrors of communism.
A living testament to that horror can still be found today in Siberia. It is the road that runs from Magadan to Yakutsk, otherwise known as the the Road of Bones
