FIFTH COLUMNIST: Extreme left ALP candidate promotes rival party

fifthcolumnist Colleen Gibbs who is running against diminutive but highly regarded Socialist Lefty Liz Beattie for ALP preselection for the state seat of Yuroke has been caught promoting a rival political party, the Socialist Alliance party and is believed to be a secret member of that virulently leftist and anti-semitic organisation.

Left insiders suspect she is a member of the Socialist Alliance Party’s Geelong branch. We understand this branch is connected with local bikie groups and others involved in crimes of violence at workplaces and elsewhere.

ANTI-SEMITES
The Socialist Alliance party constantly and  hatefully attacks Israel as an “apartheid” state, an offensive and absurd attempt to undermine Israel’s self-defence from terrorism by equating it with the former South African hate regime. Far from being an apartheid state, Israel is in fact one of the most cosmpolitan nations on earth, with people of all backgrounds in the Knessett for example, including a large number of Israeli Arabs.

VEXNEWS has obtained a copy of an email sent by Gibbs, an official at the AMWU to her comrades at the union, imploring them to attend this weekend’s Socialist Alliance Party State Conference which is even held on her union’s premises free of charge:

colleengibbsemail

From: Colleen Gibbs
Sent: Thursday, 25 June 2009 8:26 AM
To: AMWU- VIC Officials; Frank Fairley; Georgie Kimmel
Subject: FW: IMPORTANT – Graham Brown speaking in Melbourne
Hi All,
Anyone interested in going along to this to listen to Graham are quite welcome to attend.
Cheers
Coll

socialistalliance Comrade Coll enclosed a copy of the Socialist Alliance Party’s flyer with the email alongside hagiographical details of one of its lunatic left-wing speakers.

FANATICALLY ANTI-LABOR
The Socialist Alliance party explains that it is an electoral coalition of several ultra-left militant groups. Its website and other propaganda frequently denounces the Labor Party and it usually preferences against Labor candidates in the inner-city in favour of their ultra-leftist Greens party cousins.

Its current site labels Labor’s Queensland Premier Anna Bligh a “thief”, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd a “racist” and a “polluter and celebrates the Greens political party’s victory over Labor in the Fremantle by-election.

Prior to the last state election, their angry rhetoric denounced the state Labor government on every conceivable issue saying “The Bracks ALP government talks out of both sides of its mouth.”

CALLS BRUMBY A HYPOCRITE AND LIAR
And while one of its members and promoters Colleen Gibbs wants to serve in John Brumby’s government, her party doesn’t miss him either labelling him:

â–  a hypocrite who didn’t seriously oppose the Workchoices and whose decisions “demonstrate once again that the Labor Party is capable of being just as anti-worker and pro-business as the Coalition parties when it is in government”
â–  a liar who misrepresented Victoria’s bushfires when the disputed his assessment of the fire risk and extent of the fires: “Far from being a “one-in-a-thousand-years event” claimed by Victorian premier John Brumby, bushfires like those in Victoria have been multiplying as average temperatures rise across eastern Australia.”

With friends like Colleen Gibbs hoping to claim a safe seat on the backbench of his government, John Brumby must sometimes think he doesn’t need enemies.

    THAT’S imploring? Whoa, when I implore the missus for some action or a suit for some spare change so I can get a cheeseburger I must really be going over the top.

    Though the SA is one of the most ridicules organizations in the country- I stumbled into a meeting when I was in a pub on little Collins a while back- I was hammered so sat down for a listen- hee-larious.

  4. at last someone in the alp is talking sense.

    Mind you the working class still prefer to spend their lesuire time wisely and most will have better things planned than discussing the ins and outs of zionism on a weekend.

    this conference would be better suited to a weekday, maybe colleen could convince her amwu collegues to book the town hall; say on a thursday for such an event.

    Dave richards would be up for it, anything to get out of work.

  9. The Socialist Alliance are “Anti-Semites”?

    That’s pretty funny, especially considering the amount of members I know in SA that are of Jewish decent/background and considering that they are among some of the strongest ANTI-ZIONIST activists that I know.

    If you want to look for racist actions how about you focus on the lib party that locked babies behind razor wire for years and then tried to charge their parents hundreds of thousands for the “privelege”.

    BTW, starting slanderous lies about association with “BIKERS” (the new terrorists? hahaha) and violent crime could well get you sued, prosecutted and bankrupted, as your little buddy Malcolm Turnbul(shit) will soon be.

You obviously never heard Beatty denigrate Turks in a faction meeting. She is just another of Carr’s cronies but you seem to have gone soft on him lately just like your mates Shortcon Inc….

  12. MP blackmail attempt on secret gay sex film
    Les Kennedy
    February 22, 2009

    A MAN attempted to blackmail an Australian politician after secretly filming them having sex together.

    Jake Della-Vedova, 25, threatened to “out” the married parliamentarian, whom he met on a gay dating website, by placing film of the pair being intimate on the internet.

    Della-Vedova, who has lived most of his life in Sydney, has pleaded guilty to a charge of blackmail. He faces a maximum of up to 15 years in jail when he appears for sentencing in the County Court of Victoria in Melbourne on Friday.

    The identity of the MP has been suppressed. Della-Vedova is prohibited by court order from revealing the politician’s name, even to his own family. It is not known from which state the MP hails.

    Police allege Della-Vedova threatened to out the politician by releasing on the internet a secretly filmed video he took of the pair in a sexual act unless he was paid $15,000.

    At the time Della-Vedova was working as a senior waiter at a Melbourne restaurant. The blackmail attempt is alleged to have taken place early last year after a relationship between the men ended, allegedly when Della-Vedova learned the true identity of the MP.

    In July, Della-Vedova was arrested and charged by detectives from the Victoria Police Crimes Task Operations unit after the politician complained of the blackmail demand.

    An officer said police raided Della-Vedova’s St Kilda unit, seizing a computer and mobile phones. “A number of items were located on his computer and in the mobile phone records relating to the offence,” the officer said. “He has made full admissions and has pleaded guilty.”

    The guilty plea to one charge of blackmail was made in Melbourne Magistrates Court late last year.

    The suppression order was imposed by Deputy Chief Magistrate Felicity Broughton after a statement of facts was tendered by police. The victim’s name was not read in open court.

    Ms Broughton committed Della-Vedova for sentence this Friday. She released him on bail on condition he regularly report to Prahran Police Station.

    A spokeswoman for the Victoria Office of Public Prosecutions, which has charge of the case, would not comment except to cite the suppression order, which states:

    “There be a prohibition upon the reporting or publication of any information which would identify or tend to identify the complainant in these proceedings. The order operates until 27 February 2009.”

  14. Andy,
    Colleen is clearly referring to going to listen to Graham Brown. Graham addressed Geelong Trades Hall this week.
    Col.is an Exec member of Trades Hall. Seems to me that she was just providing AMWU officials with an opportunity to pick up on Brown’s perspective on the green energy debate, which he had presented to Trades Hall.
    I hardly think that AMWU officials are going to join the Socialist Alliance on the basis of his address.
    Such a simplistic view and the misinterpretation of the subject line in Colleen’s e-mail does nothing to further your reputation as a Journalist of Record.
    Col. is an extremely hard working Geelong based union activist and ALP member. She was one of the handfull that worked there arses off for 2 years building the anti-workchoices campaign in Corangamite to roll the local Liberal clone of ‘Sir Murray Waters’.
    Like many union activists – including some SDA stewards I know – she is probably disappointed with the limited changes in the ‘Fair Work Australia’ legislation. This does NOT make her a traitor to the ALP. Neither does advising her union work colleagues of a speaker of interest wed her to the policies of those providing the platform.
    Not that I necessarily agree with the slant you put on the alleged policies of the Socialist Alliance.

  20. “It might have helped if they and other groups had listened to the Israeli government’s warnings against Iran years ago.”

    Hmm what were they warning in 1953? “Better overthrow that bastard Mosaddeq, can’t have elected leaders nationalising oil that righfully belongs to the free world, it’s undemocratic”.

    And I wonder what they warned the free world in the period 1953-79, maybe: “Better defend that Shah, he’s a corrupt, sadistic, murdering sonofabitch, but he’s *our* corrupt, sadistic, murdering sonofabitch”.

    And how dare they compare the Israeli state to Aparheid, I mean for one thing as if, during the period of one of the most racist and colonialist regimes in history, they would train the torturers of that regime and help it gain nuclear weapons. Oh, they did.

  30. Socialist Alliance is anti-Zionist. It is however certainly not racist in any form – including not anti semetic.

    The Semetic peoples are the supposed decendants of Shem. They include Arabs, Iraqis, Syrians, Lebanese, Palestinians. and Jordanians as well as the Jews.

    I am proud to be part of Socialist Alliance a group who stands up for the rights of the Palestinians, who opposed the Israeli invasion of Jodan, Syria and Lebanon.

    As a member of Socialist Alliance I recognise the rights of both Israelis and Palestinans to have an independent state. I do not however recognise the supposed right that Israel thinks it has to kidnap 11000 Palestinians, steal their land, and prevent food, water, medicines, and building materials to Gaza.

  32. Luke Weyland, I note with interest your suggestion that Israel “stole” the Palestinians’ land.

    Have you ever read the Koran? It’s not exactly Zionist propaganda. And yet it makes plenty of references to Jews in the area. Interestingly, it doesn’t make a single reference to Palestinians. Why might that be?
    Why might part of the area be called “Judea”? Go on take a guess…

    Better yet, consider this Japanese View of the Palestinians which asks:

    f you are so sure that “Palestine, the country, goes back through most of recorded history”, I expect you to be able to answer a few basic questions about that country of Palestine:

    When was it founded and by whom?

    What were its borders?

    What was its capital?

    What were its major cities?

    What constituted the basis of its economy?

    What was its form of government?

    Can you name at least one Palestinian leader before Arafat?

    etc…

    Sorry Luke, as a “member of Socialist Alliance” you have clearly been brainwashed in a number of areas. Your fact-deficient view on Israel is just one of them. You may not think you are an anti-Semite, but trust me, you are saying and doing things which are consistent with one. You might wish to think very long and hard about that.

  35. I read your rant with mild disinterest. Could I perhaps offer some advice? If you are going to take power when the Socialist Left Revolution comes, you must learn to spell. Vitriolic rants and idle threats lose much of their impact when it is apparent that they have been penned by a moron.

    Whilst Jewish folk are often very decent I think that you were looking for the word descent to describe their ancestry.

    Prosecuted is spelt thus not with two T’s as per your appalling effort. Privilege is spelt with an i, not e as exhibited in your atrocious mauling of the English language.

    Slander pertains to the spoken word as opposed to the clearly printed subject matter here that you allege is defamatory. I believe the word that you may have been seeking to extract from your pitiful vocabulary is libellous or simply defamatory.

    You may also like to brush up on your placement of comma’s and general sentence structure if you wish to be taken for more than a bong smoking, hygienically challenged, socially inept professional uni student loser. By the way are you still a virgin?

    Given my penchant for grammatical exactitude I regret that I am unable to offer you employment in any government area. Have you considered the NGO arena? I hear the Sea Shepherd mob are looking for a new anchor.

    Kind regards
