Occupy Sydney Reserve Bank

Tonight I am joined by Craig Stanford to reflect on the occupy Reserve Bank protest which we filmed on 15 October 2011.

In our discussion we look at some of the techniques being used to create "group consciousness" at the protests here and overseas, such as hand signs and chanting, and we ask whether such tendencies are supportive of human freedom.

Although the protesters claim they are the 99%, our finding is that they are largely made up of anti-capitalist, socialist, collectivist and eco-fascist minorites within our society.

There was no sign of the huge anti-carbon tax movement, which, according to many polls, represents the views of the vast majority of Australians.

Speakers at the event were heavily promoting the "action on climate change" mantra, and the strong presence of the socialist alliance and green left weekly further reinforces the impression that this movement is essentially owned by the radical left.

Does the socialist flavour we saw in Sydney reflect the tendencies of the wider global movement? According to Charles Gasparino of the Murdoch-owned New York Post,

It’s not an overstatement to describe Zuccotti Park as New York’s Marxist epicenter. Flags with the iconic face of the Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara are everywhere; the only American flag I saw was hanging upside down. The “occupiers” openly refer to each other as “comrade,” and just about every piece of literature on offer (free or for sale) advocated socialism in the Marxist tradition as a cure-all for the inequalities of the American economic system.

In Rome, the violence has been blamed on left-wing groups, which is predictable, but possibly an attempt to demonise groups which the government wishes to suppress.

Overall, there is still much potential for this movement to become a force for positive change, but there is also a huge opportunity for it to become merely another vehicle for those who think they can steer human civilsation in a particular direction.

Under the title "Why are we outside the Reserve Bank of Australia?", Occupy Sydney features this comedy sketch from 2008.

The "occupy" groups have been conducting what they call "general assemblies", a term reminiscent of the United Nations.

The Sydney group has stated:

The GA works on a basis of consensus decision making, and therefore is the only accurate way of representing what the entire group wants the world to know. The Occupy Sydney general assembly at Martin Place aims to provide a forum for all voices to be heard and are constantly learning better ways to be inclusive of all perspectives.

why does hereward fenton have a syballant- S- homosexual lisp? Those of us who actually understand the way of the world , rather than “seeking truth” realise the import of his sexual proclivities.

And please don’t censor me this time. My question is valid.And very relevant.

By Dave on 2011 10 18 - 15:59:15

Dave what’s your issue with homosexuality and wtf does that have to do with anything?

By Ninja Gaijin on 2011 10 18 - 18:15:41

Well Ninja it is a perversion from God’s path , and is tapping the power of the fallen angels.
It is the hallmark of the deceivers. And therefore relevant considering what this man represents.
It may well be that he is just a naturally effiminate but good man ,or a homosexual unaware of the true nature of reality.
But it may well also be a sign he is working for the Roman church.Who are behind all conspiracies. A fact those of us who know history, listened to our grandparents and have read the law are fully aware of.
(Yes it specifically says in law that the Roman Church have and will try to infiltrate and deceive us.Read the original Bill of Rights- your rights which by the way is the true target for carbon tax law)

They always play both ends against the middle. Pretending to be both the opposition to and in favour of every issue in order to control the debate and set the agenda.

Which is what Mr fenton seems to be saying is going on with socialists at this carbon tax rally.

By Dave on 2011 10 18 - 18:38:05

is it also what truthnews australia has been created for?

By Dave on 2011 10 18 - 19:07:40

Is that you Jake? LOL

By Hereward Fenton on 2011 10 18 - 20:15:20

No Mr Fenton , i am genuine.

And would prefer to write to you publicly since you ignored my previous emails some months ago in regards to the actual purpose behind these conspiracies. Which i volunteered to explain as best I can to any Australians listening to your podcasts.
I received no reply,nor have i seen you mention the subject on your site since then.

Simply put I can explain the truth of what we have been brainwashed not to know since we first turned on a T.V. or went to school.
Which you are either oblivious to or uninterested in bringing to the attention of your audience.
And in particular my concern is the pressing issue of Australia losing its soverignty to the united nations through the introduction of carbon tax law , which will remove our protections as free men that date back to the Magna Carta.

If Australians realised what was really going on , I believe they would forget about the debate over polllution and science and address the real issue. That being , we are about to be conquered by the Roman Catholic Church, bringing to a bitter close 400 odd years of the Protestant Revolution.

By Dave on 2011 10 18 - 21:09:41

The movement has a strong lfet leaning,however that does not mean that we should not engage and make our presence felt.

By Ross Johnson on 2011 10 19 - 03:53:23

Every “movement” from the suffragettes to the sexual revolution to the
greens had a leftwing fingerprint. The fingerprint of the pope.

Marx didnt create socialism, Rome did. Russia isnt your first communist government, Paraguay was . Run by the Jesuits in the 1500s (I think).

So yes Ross it does mean you shouldnt engage because it is treason.

As is the carbon tax itself.

If you read Marx, as Im sure you do, you will find that he promotes centralisation of industry and governement control.
These corporations socialists like to point the finger at, are in fact centralisation of industry.

They are not the natural evolution of capitalism, they are the fruits of rigged laws, and corruption in order to swallow up a diverse free enterprise of ordinary businesses. And centralise industry. They are socialism with a capitalism label .

Which makes the socialist point of view a little ironic.

But worse than that, treasonous.

Could Hereward Fenton please answer my question , so I dont keep getting emailed to respond on this page?

By Dave on 2011 10 19 - 05:27:32

hey dave, i was talking to god last night, he said you were a dickhead and should kill yourself. dont disapoint him again.

By cheech on 2011 10 19 - 07:47:16

Hey Dave, you sound remarkably like that crackpot “men’s alliance” nutjob that used to troll on Sam in The City. Taken a leap of faith from misogyny to religious fanaticism now hey? Good on you Dave, you are now an officially heinous human being.

By Zara on 2011 10 19 - 11:16:27

I don’t see the need to be rude Zara and Cheech.

Very little information of value is given freely, only lies are free.

You are brainwashed, as i was, so I will try to be patient with you nonetheless.

If you have come to this site , you know something is wrong and are trying to find out exactly what.

Unfortunately most “truthers” will not consider Christianity as being the truth those that would deceive us are trying to hide.
Because we have been deeply morally corrupted in our modern world.
It takes enormous courage to realise almost everything you consider good and moral is in fact the opposite.

The truth really does hurt.

In the same way people you try to convince that 911 was an insidejob, or that our media is controlled propaganda , refuse to listen. Because the implications for their lives is painful. So too are most “truthseekers” too scared to investigate the glaringly obvious message of history.
We are protestant Christians in the eyes of Rome whether you choose to be religious or not.
For it was they that have brainwashed us to live a godless life.

There is a logical path to God in our age, if you but look. And blind tolerance of all by its nature means tolerance of evil.

You are being robbed of your birthright in a war that moved from the battlefield to our minds.
That being the Holy Spirit.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Iahiah 5:20

Is it too much to ask Mr Fenton to reply to my question ?

By Dave on 2011 10 19 - 12:04:11

Economically speaking it has not happenned here like Greece etc . This so far is not the same phenomena as seen in the Northern hemisphere.  As Gerald Celente says it starts when people lose everything because they have nothing left to lose. This is not this crowd

By Nic on 2011 10 20 - 06:25:05

Okay . I have given Mr Fenton sufficient time to reply.
I suggest well intentioned people visiting this website consider the possibility he is leading you down the garden path.

The key to understanding all this conspircaytainment is to know history.

From books written prior to the 20th century,not youtube.
I suggest you read up on what we were not taught about in school.

The Protestant Revolution.

Most of the internet personailities that are exposing these “truths” are working for the very people who brainwashed us.

Direcly or indirectly.

All roads lead to Rome

Although I agree with many of their ideas, the forces reigned against RAM are too great, violent, statist and reactionary for them to remain a non-political, broad based, multi-ethnic, community protest group for much longer. The Left and their Antifa nihilist fellow travelers are already pushing them towards the extreme Right, by calling them racists and Islamophobes and so on. Whilst the extreme Right have aligned themselves with RAM. With fascists of the Left and Right pressuring them they will not be able to remain beyond the Left-Right divide and will inevitably move to the Right - the extreme Right. Which is already happening. A development which will alienate decent Australians of all ethnic backgrounds many of whom currently support them. 

The RAM leadership have already established open alliances with the Patriotic Front (the ape in the photograph is a Patriot Front supporter at a recent Richmond demonstration) Australia First and Golden Dawn, a Greek neo-Nazi party. Members of these collectivist groups are currently attending RAM demonstrations all over Australia.

There is a real need in Australia to establish a political movement beyond the Left-Right divide and their vested interests, a movement that questions the current direction Australia is heading i.e. the direction the Left/Right and their extremes would like to take it; that questions the efficacy of state sponsored multiculturalism, as opposed to a proper, non-discriminatory immigration policy; that questions the validity of political correctness; that is politically neutral, anti-war and pro environment; that is opposed to all collectivists ideologies (fascisms of the Left and Right); that would dismantle the power pyramids of corporations and banks and their ability to impact on government; that would dissolve all anti-terror laws and all laws that impose on the rights and freedom of the individual and the people.

I second Keith’s assertion that Mike Holt from Restore Australia is very much a fake.  He bangs on about Halaal being a scam and money maker for Islam (and no I don’t support Halaal whatsoever), but makes excuses for its counterpart Kosher as being a somehow legitimate.  Double standards?  When I confronted him about this fact he went off on a convoluted tirade about Israel being some sort of “Bastion of Democracy” in the middle east…Really!, I will leave that one up to the readers to decide on.  I found that MH came across as disingenuous to say the least.

Without doubt, TNR is one of the best, if not the best alternative news source on the net. Which doesn’t mean Herewood is always right. His job, I believe, is to present the facts as he sees them as an objectively as possible, without fear or favor.  For this, he has my respect and support. But I believe he needs to be careful and to think a little deeper about the problems of “racism,” in Australia. He has labelled the Reclaim Australia Movement as racist. I’m wondering if his objectivity is a little weak on this point, a little without foundation.

Of course all political movements have its fringe groups and individuals. We make a distinction between, for example, a Muslim and a fundamentalist Muslim (Islamist), and by so doing we don’t claim that all Muslims are blood thirsty fanatics. If its good for the Muslims, then its good for RAM, which is bound to attract a few lunatics and real racists. But to brand the entire movement as “racist” is wrong; it is the same ploy that is used by the mainstream media and its left-wing, establishment Marxist boot boys.

One of the first things I noticed when i attended a RAM rally recently were the amount of non-white people in attendance, including Aboriginals. In fact the main banner of RAM contains an Australian flag and an Aboriginal flag. Speakers at their rallies have included Jews, Arabs, Indians, Aboriginals, Chinese and so on. What does this tell you? Is this really a fascist-Nazi-racist movement whose stated aim are the eradication and exclusion of other cultures, in place of some sort of Aussie white Reich, or is this just propaganda that is being propagated by the left for their own political interests. Consequently, we all know where the culmination of their politics have led, historically speaking, which are to the imposition of terror and dictatorships.

We can be thankful for small mercies, in terms of the Left, which today mostly tends to attract collectivists, establishmentarians and the privileged sons and daughters of the upper bourgeoisie, who seems to share one thing in common, nativity….

Mike Holt from Restore Australia is very much a fake.  He hasn’t even been citizen for but a few years.  But, he makes out like he was born there.  ALSO - this guy spent 30 years in Thailand working shady businesses.  I would wager that his primary purpose in being an activist is that he wants to make money off selling merchandise.

good to see you putting out some new shows heraward

freely the banana girl is to a certain extent a troll, as is her boyfriend durian rider. they have been trolling the fitness community on youtube for some time… and yes they are extreme but they are also trolls. They use their trolling to spread their message. currently, another dude called vegangains is trolling the fitness community as well.

i am a vegetarian, and it was seeing this documentary on the pork industry that started me on the vegetarian path. for anyone interested, its pretty off the charts disturbing and its australian as well. its pretty much made by dudes breaking into pork farms and filming what they find

Would the world be better if people cared where their food came from? probably, they might then care about other things too

do you become a better person if you dont eat meat? i feel like a better person mainly because animals aren’t being hurt because of me. i dont feel humans have to eat meat really… or at least not much. How can you watch that documentary on pork, know that that is pretty much whats going on and turn a blind eye to it? I think its basic empathy and just saying well ‘i like bacon so yeah’ is in my opinion wrong and i can see freleys point of view to an extent. In my opinion, at least these people believe in something. i see my money as my vote, henceforth im ethical as to what i do with it. free range eggs became mainstream for exactly this reason… although im pretty sure woolies and coles lobbied the state to change the definition of the word ‘free range’ at some point. I dont eat beef because the amount of resources that go into growing a cow are pretty crazy. Think about how much grass that cow needs to eat before it is harvested and how much space it requires. think of how many vegies you could grow in the same space with the same amount of water. lamb? comon, think about what your doing here… but that being said i think most vegans are total loons. People like freeley should be advocating for the destruction of lions and tigers, as lions and tigers murder other animals in truly horrific style. if we humans are smart enough to not harm animals, then we should be stopping the animals that harm other animals from existing. Freeley also kills birds when she flies in aeroplanes so she is a hypocrite.

feminism is one of the biggest problems in society today and although there is some valid historical basis to it, the liberation of the human female from their biology is in my opinion largely a product of the technological advance of humans. sufferagettes where never machine gunned on the streets, unlike the men that where drafted and sent off to war to die just a few years earlier. as technology has advanced, women have advanced as well, however now its going way too far and is pretty blatantly anti male in many respects. i view feminism in its modern context as a tool of the social marxists that really isnt doing society a great deal of good at this time. its screwing up gender dynamics and is wrecking women and men for each other. i see it as low frequency, lowest common denominator idiocy, just like a lot of the the race baiting ‘is this racist’ stuff getting around that is being perpetuated pretty much as a distraction, divide and conquer strategy by the power elite. idiots love this kind of bicker and beef… it would be funny if it wasn’t so serious


I agree with steven friar. gods a maniac

good show… keep making them

From the entry 'Mass media disinformation and brainwashing dissected'.

Almost two months since the last broadcast! How the hell can you expect people to donate when you don’t broadcast? Looks like the ship of truth has sprung a leak. This broadcast has been part of my life almost since its inception…it is one of the few alternative news sources that hasn’t gone off the deep end, by dilution credible information with crap e.g. Fairdinkum Radio and Info Wars…Pittard started FR with some incredibly interesting material, but then he flipped…Today he sounds like a fundamentalist preacher, the Christian equivalent to a Fanatical Islamist. As an atheist, I think he’s really ###### up a potentially good show. As for Info Wars, all they would have to do to improve is dump Alex Jones, what a shit-for-brains. I reckon Jones and Pittard are allowed to proliferate, because they’re so stupid and harmless. I suppose they have some entertainment value, and along with David Icke are living examples of how low the alternative media has sunk. Truth News Radio is, or should I say was, way ahead of them all ahead of them all in terms of credibility How sad that its come to this.
