The Meeting Place

Is Senator Dastyari playing it up?

The right-wing nationalists who ambushed Senator Sam Dastyari in a bar this week are being sued over the white supremacist group's name.

Patriot Blue is the name being used by the fictional racist group in the upcoming Stan original series Romper Stomper.

The streaming service and Roadshow Productions will launch legal action against the men who attacked Senator Dastyari, saying they have misappropriated the name from the series.

"The group involved have misappropriated the name of the fictional group from the series,” Stan and Roadshow said in a joint statement.

Stan and Roadshow Productions today instructed law firm Gilbert and Tobin to take appropriate legal action in relation to the infringement of the Patriot Blue trademark, and use of the Stan name on Facebook.

Two Patriot Blue members approached Iranian-born Senator Dastyari this week, calling him a “terrorist” and “little monkey” while ordering drinks at Melbourne bar Vu. The men filmed the exchange and posted it on Facebook.

Most of the Senator's colleagues have shown support for him since the attack – except long-time rival Pauline Hanson.

“What a joke. He’s nothing but a pipsqueak,” she told reporters.

“He’s played up this whole thing. I’ve got absolutely no time for him whatsoever.”

One Patriot Blue member told ABC Radio that “Sam’s a strong bloke, he’s got a thick skin, he’s been in politics for a long time.” He also defended his actions and claimed that the Senator was also quite racist.

“He called us rednecks, which is a racist term in fact, so look, he gives as good as he gets.

“I think he’s playing the victim a little bit.”

What do you think?

The point of all this is, no one should have to put up with this sort of behaviour from a bunch of thugs. That's what they are darn thugs. I feel if that camera wasn't there they would have hit Dastyari. Muslim women have had their head scarves ripped off their heads by Australian thugs. I was beginning to believe we were moving towards a more civilised society. Seems I was wrong.

I do not like Sam Dastyari BUT I do not believe in this sort of attack it was and is wrong -- and Hansen should also shut her mouth as she is also becoming someone that does  not think before she speaks and also has a very bad way of choosing her people it seems -- starting with David Oldfield

 

Australian Left Thugs 

Violent scenes have erupted at a Sydney fundraising event for former prime minister Tony Abbott, with protesters clashing with police and guests. 

About 200 protesters outside the event in Redfern confronted invited guests, including Mr Abbott’s sister Christine Forster, who had her jacket ripped from her back and shredded by the angry mob.

Ms Forster was forced back from the entrance of the Australian Technology Park conference and events centre until police formed a ring around her and pushed their way through the crowd.

Among the crowd of protesters was Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon, who spoke at the event and later tweeted her delight.

Funny how there are no calls for the thugs who clearly assaulted Ms Forster to be hunted down and charged. Couldn't possibly be because she is a Libral and Mr Abbott's sister could it? Surely not!

There are so many different responses to this comment. 

Instead of looking at the wide picture and joining all the dots to a possible conclusion. Those people need to be charged. Those people need to be dealt with by the law.

The last thing we need is for them to be given a "gang" label as though they have strength in some extremist movement - it gives them power. So does giving them air time in the media.

From Sen Dastyari perspective media coverage gives him sympathy, notoriety and loyalty to his cause.

The best solution. No comment and let the legal system handle the incident.

Wasn't This Incident carryied out in a Melbourne Bar.

Why didn't The Staff Intervene, and Taken Control so The Responsible Serving Of Alcohol should have been used.

Who are you going to charge The Establishment or All Partys involved, this wasn't out on the street.

The First I Would Hold Responsible Is The Establishment. To allow this to happen.

Shown on on film clip no one telling anyone to stop, but kept on serving as this incident evolved.

  

Leftist thugs attacked Christine Forster and her partner -  abusing, jostling, spitting and tearing Forster's jacket almost in half.  

But the ABC claims Forster was merely caught in fire from both sides:

Manus Island protesters clash with police as Christine Forster gets caught in crossfire.

"Caught in crossfire"? Not attacked by the Left?

The ABC is unfixable. If this is how it reports something so cut and dried, what else won't it report straight?

Every taxpayer who identifies as Right wing should be entitled to a refund of the percentage of every his and her tax dollar that gies into this pathetic second rate Left wing media organ. Better still- sell off the ABC .

Letter Herald Sun  

I want to know what you all mean by leftist?

( I do NOT agree with violence at all and those that do so should be charged FOR SURE)

 

However so many say leftist a derogatory manner -- I am more left than right but only because I care more than the right wing as most leftists do.

To call anyone who supports the Labor Party a "leftist thug" is a very derogatory term. It shows the mind and thinking of a complete pea brain, since "thugs" can appear from any social group including the Liberal Party. The only person on this forum who consistently uses this insulting term is  Brocky/Pete/Richard etc etc etc..

Your thuggish attacks on Women on this site Micha precludes you from any adult discussion Sonny ,,

I wouldn't even have you in a cage in my zoo, you and your female friends would contaminate the other decent animals.

Yes, Reagan,  Tony Abbott is a very good example of a thug

Plan B I have said many times that although we are at opposite ends of the political spectrum I admire you and enjoy our political tussles . 

Please don’t give any respectable response to Regan it is just Micha who states he is 38 and under many names spends all his time here attacking senior women . Including you . 

Any casual reading of any thread will see his cruel attacks on Cats Foxy Twila and has driven Robi off the site. 

Now back to political issues . 

1 Why call Tony a Thug , He is the one who was attacked physically by a creep wearing a Yes vote badge . 

2 His gay sister , a Liberal , was attacked Physicaly Whist trying to attend a fund raising event . By I inner city elite Green supporters who were addressed by Lee Riahonnon a communist and who boasted about it on Twitter . 

3 Tony has to be the most socially responsible pollly .He is a volunteerer  as a fire fighter , life saver and aboriginal worker and fund raiser for causes . 

He still lives in the modest suburban house he always has after raising three wonderful daughters, still with his only wife .

has not sought wealth as his accademic qualifications would allow . 

I don’t agree always with his politics I am more to the right than his DLP views . 

His time as PM of raising taxes and not cutting Govt spending are against my principles .

I fully agree there Brocky the bloke that did this to Abbott should be charged for sure

2 His gay sister , a Liberal , was attacked Physicaly Whist trying to attend a fund raising event . By I inner city elite Green supporters who were addressed by Lee Riahonnon a communist and who boasted about it on Twitter . 

I also agree that this was SO very wrong and do not agree with any violence at all they too should be charged

3 Tony has to be the most socially responsible pollly .He is a volunteerer  as a fire fighter , life saver and aboriginal worker and fund raiser for causes . 

Tony might belong to all these BUT you can't deny he is and always has been a thug physically and mentally

He still lives in the modest suburban house he always has after raising three wonderful daughters, still with his only wife .

has not sought wealth as his accademic qualifications would allow . 

Yes, he does because he is unable to manage money and already borrowed $700.000  (with the wage he gets)      He is also a real heavy drinker ---

I don’t agree always with his politics I am more to the right than his DLP views . 

IMO Abbott is very right wing and has broken every promise he made -- and considering he is a --supposed to be VERY religious, he sure tells lots of lies.

His time as PM of raising taxes and not cutting Govt spending are against my principles .

And don't forget he broke EVERY promise he made --

 

“However so many say leftist a derogatory manner -- I am more left than right but only because I care more than the right wing as most leftists do”. 

 About your comment above . 

Why would you consider Leftist or Lefty a derogatory term . 

I totally disagree that leftists care more . 

The Left wether communist , Socialst or NaZI or Facist or Labor have not succeeded in raising people out of poverty . 

The exteme left of Communist and National Socialist have been the most racially intolerant and responsible for the death of millions . 

Micha you may try to close down free speech with your spamming but it won’t work .

There are too many of us oldies who value discussion .

From where  I sit I can see no one  "discussing"  anything with you though!

And you are?

Dr Spock from Vulcan, we need volunteers to inhabit a new planet just discovered called the "Hell Hole"

Ah of course Sonny . I think you have wandered into an adults site . Micha
