ABC Late Night Live (LNL) censors listener comments e.g. those critical of US Alliance War on Muslims (12 million war-related deaths since 1990)

The ABC Radio National Late Night (LNL) program is an ostensiblyy "progressive", "liberal' and "intellectual" interview program. However as outlined below, the ABC censored out various listener comments to the program, presumably because they contain facts or opinions the ABC does not want its listeners to know about or think about.

After particularly egregious multiple censorship of comments on a 12 April 2012 presentation about the French elections (for details scroll to the bottom), further censorship has occurred. For my convenience and for a record of LNL bias and censorship in the public interest, I have listed all LNL programs since then in chronological order, together with my comments (censored comments are in bold). ("Mulga Mumblebrain" is an evidently educated and humane interlocutor who is also censored by the ABC) .


IT APPEARS THAT ON ABOUT 7 MAY THE ABC COMMENCED BLOCKING THE POSTING OF MY COMMENTS TO LNL.

On 16 July 2012 LNL had a segment entitled “The Scottish Highland Clearances”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/the-highland-clearances/4129166 . By modifying my user name slightly to avoid ABC blockage of posts by “Dr Gideon Polya” I was able to post the following comment. However it did not last long – by 9.20 am 17 July 2012 it had been DELETED by the ABC.

17 Jul 2012 8:05:15am

The classic book on the subject is "The Highland Clearances" by John Prebble. According to independent accounts from Victoria and Canada my earliest known Scots ancestor was a Guighan MacDonald who fled to Ireland after participating in the Battle of Culloden (1746) and under threat of hanging (the MacDonalds having been proscribed by the Sassanachs), returning thereafter as Donald McGuigan. My forebears were subsequently cleared, fleeing to Australia, Canada and America. Our homes, 2 crofters cottages, still exist north of the Mull of Kintyre, 1 roofless and the other being used for sheep (the latest owner kindly permitted access).

My Jewish forebears fled Prussian-occupied Poland to Austria-Hungary at about the same time (circa 1800) and were then mostly exterminated by the Nazis in the 1940s with the survivors fleeing to Australia, Canada and America.

Understand therefore why the genocidal crimes in the Muslim world today by the US Alliance-backed Zionists of Apartheid Israel and the Zionist-backed US Alliance (including Apartheid Australia) are so utterly abhorrent to decent anti-racist Jews and indeed to all anti-racists, to whit (refugees and deaths from violence or war-imposed deprivation in parentheses) the Palestinian Genocide (7 million refugees, 2 million deaths since 1936), the Iraqi Genocide (5-6 million refugees, 4.6 million deaths since 1900), the Afghan Genocide (3-4 million refugees, 5.6 million deaths since 2001), the Somali Genocide (2 million refugees, 2.2 million deaths since 1992)and the Libyan Genocide (1.3 million refugees, 0.1 million deaths since 2011). The Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist (NAZI)-beholden, anti-Arab anti-Semitic, Australian Lib-Labs (Liberal-Laborals, like their other neo-fascist, warmongering Western counterparts, are beating the drum for similar devastation of Syria and Iran. Decent Australians will vote 1 Green and put Labor last till it gives up commitment to NAZI genocide.

 

On 16 July 2012 LNL had a segment entitled “China’s Dilemma in Africa”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/china27s-dilemma-in-africa/4129170  . By modifying my user name slightly to DrGideonPolya4 to avoid ABC blockage of posts by “Dr Gideon Polya” I tried to post a detailed  comment but it failed. The ABC had also removed a prior post by another person.

 

From MEMORY, this is roughly what I said but which was blocked by the ABC blocking listener comments:

 

Some point to complement /correct the segment.

 

“1. Annual avoidable deaths from deprivation in India total 3.7 million as compared to essentially zero (0) in China and Australia. Avoidable deaths as a percentage of population is 1.8% (Indigenous Australians), 0.95% (non-Arab Africa), 0.355 (India) and essentially zero (0) % (China and Australia) (see my book “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” now available for free perusal on the Web).

 

2. Chinese-speaking  former Australian Prime Minister (2007-2010) and  Foreign Minisiter (2010-2012) Kevin Rudd (removed from office in a US-approved, mining company-backed, pro-Zionist-led Coup in June 2010) recently wrote an article entitled “Kevin Rudd: The west isn’t  ready for the rise of China”“ for the prestigious UK magazine The New Statesman in which he stated more or less correctly : “The China that I have studied over the decades is one that has not been in the business of invading other countries for more than 2,000 years. Nor has China sought to establish colonies around the world, even though its navigational skills and naval capabilities during the Ming Dynasty were considerably more advanced than those of countries in the west” (China finally re-established control over Tibet about 900 years ago, centuries before England finally conquered Scotland Wales and Ireland. On must disagree with Mr Rudd’s praise for “the current liberal, rules-based order, one that has served the international community reasonably well since the carnage of the Second World War” (1950-205 avoidable deaths fro deprivation total 1.3 billion on Spaceship Earth with the US in charge of the flight deck).

 

3.   Under-5 infant mortality (under-5 infnt deaths per 1,000 births) dropped from about 200 to 25 in both China and Tibet as compared to 8 (the US) and 5 (Australia) and a shocking 199 in US Alliance- and Australia-occupied Afghanistan.  The Nazis killed 1.5 million Jewish children in WW2 whereas  2.9 million Occupied Afghanistan under-5 year old infants have died since 2001, 90% avoidably and due to US Alliance and Australian war crimes in gross violation of the Geneva Convention, Bring on the war crimes trials, especially against female MPs associated with this atrocity. Decent Australians will vote 1 Green and put Labor last until it returns to decent values, not least of which is “thou shalt not kill children” either actively  or passively.

On 3 May 2012 re “Dick Smith”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/dick-smith/3967200 . My comments:

 

Dr Gideon Polya :

05 May 2012 10:22:57am

An entertaining interview with Dick Smith who must be applauded for his sensible stance on the environmentally disastrous over-population of Australia and the World. However 2 of Dick Smith's comments require response.

1. Dick Smith commented that he hoped that some eminent wise people would state that "one day the growth has to stop". They have. In 2009 the WBGU, which advises the German Government on climate change, estimated that for a 75% chance of avoiding a 2C rise in temperature (EU policy; would you board a plane with a 25% chance of crashing?) the world can emit no more than 600 billion tonnes of CO2 between 2010 and zero emissions in 2050. Australia's "fair share" of this terminal greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution "budget" is 600,000 million tonnes CO2 x 22.3 million Australians/7,000 million human beings = 1,911 million tonnes (Mt) CO2. Unfortunately, Australia's Domestic plus Exported annual GHG pollution was 1,708 Mt CO2-e in 2010 i.e. Australia had exceeded its "fair share" over 1 year ago and is now stealing the entitlement of all other countries, including impoverished countries like Bangladesh and Somalia (Google
2011 Climate Change Course"). The "one day the growth has to stop" was reached by Australia in early 2011.

2. Dick Smith commented that he believed in capitalism but not in its extremes, stating that he also tolerated "religion but not when it sent planes into skyscrapers killing lots of people". Research by the US Center for Public integrity and the Fund for Independence in Journalism found that the Bush Administration told 935 lies between 9/11 and the invasion of Iraq (Google the CNN report by Googling "935 lies"). Unfortunately the noted sceptic Dick Smith evidently accepts the lying Bush Administration's "official 9-11 conspiracy theory" that says that Muslims did 9-11. Numerous science, engineering, aviation, architecture, military and intelligence experts conclude from scientific analysis that the US did 9-11 (Google "Experts; US did 9-11"). Indeed intelligence intimates Jewish American ex-marine and military academic Dr Alan Sabrowsky, noted UK author and ME journalist Alan Hart and former Italian President Professor Francesco Cossiga also implicate Israelis in the US-executed 9-11 atrocity.


On 2 May 2012 re “Post-Katrina recovery in New Orleans”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/post-katrina-recovery-in-new-orleans/3983272 . My following comments (IN BOLD) were CENSORED by the ABC:

 

Of the various disasters mentioned in the program the devastation of New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina on 29 August 2005 was the worst - 1,464 dead, 1 million (mostly temporary) refugees, and thousands of homes and businesses destroyed. The disaster was ultimately due to the failure of levees constructed by the US Army Corp of Engineers.

Successive Neocon- and Zionist-dominated US Administrations had more urgent if racist, genocidal and obscene fiscal priorities than protecting American lives and property e.g. hundreds of billions of dollars committed to shoring up racist, genocidal, racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel (2 million Palestinian deaths since 1936, 0.1 million from violence and 1.9 million from war-, occupation- and expulsion-imposed deprivation, 7 million refugees, 90% of Palestine ethnically cleansed) and the post-2001 $5 trillion accrual cost of the Iraq and Afghan Wars alone (4.6 million war-related Iraqi deaths since 1990 and 5-6 million refugees; 5.6 million Afghan war-related deaths since 2001, 3-4 million refugees).


Of course resolutely kept under wraps by the traitorous, lying, neocon- and Zionist-beholden US Mainstream media (and their presstitutional ilk worldwide) is the ongoing American disaster of about 1 million American preventable deaths each year due to such obscene fiscal perversion by the murderous and traitorous 1% at the expense of the 99% of Americans (for details and documentation of this Awful Truth simply Google "1 million Americans die preventably each year". In Australia (population 22.3 million as compared to America's 314 million) an estimated 66,000 Australians die preventably each year in an ongoing disaster under neocon- and Zionist-beholden, pro-war, anti-Humanity, anti-science and anti-Biosphere Liberal-Laboral (Lib-Lab) governments (Google "66,000 Australians die preventably").

On 2 May 2012 re “America’s decline”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/america27s-decline/3983254 . My comments:

 

"A Monotheist" is correct to point the finger at capitalism. America has 4.5% of the world's population but consumes 25% of the world's resources. If one plots greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution against GDP, most countries of the world roughly fit on a straight line but climate criminal, high per capita GHG polluting countries like the US and Australia sit above the line. Endlessly war-making and now debt-ridden America can no longer pay for its profligacy (and of course African Americans and Hispanics will continue to disproportionately suffer for the crimes of the 1%).

Last evening I attended a lecture by one of Australia's top climate scientists Professor David Karoly who re-iterated the message of the Australian Climate Commission that for a 75% chance of avoiding a 2C temperature rise the world can only emit 1 trillion more tonnes of CO2 before reaching zero emissions in 2050. The US will use up its "fair share" of this global terminal GHG pollution budget well before 2020 but shows no intention of stopping its profligacy i.e. it rejects "all men are created equal" in favor of unbridled capitalist greed and climate genocide (ditto climate criminal Australia; for a related analysis based on estimates from the WBGU, the German Climate Commission, Google "Shocking analysis by country of years left to zero emissions").

"Ken" is also spot on. Not just the US but all the Western democracies are in reality Lobbyocracies in which the Really Big Money of the 1% buys politicians, parties, policies, public perception of reality and votes. The shocking gulf between scientific perception of reality and that purveyed by the Lobbyocracy Mainstream media will inevitably mean climate genocide and ecosystem collapse due to greedy 1 percenter insistence on climate change inaction (for a damning, 16 item assessment of neocon Labor climate change inaction while pretending otherwise Google "Australian PM Julia Gillard's appalling record of climate change inaction").




On 1 May 2012 re US  Bruce Shapiro on US, China, blind dissident and human rights: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/bruce-shapiro/3983436  . My comments:

 

Dr Gideon Polya :

02 May 2012 12:09:23pm

Obviously all humane people want to see greater assurance of individual liberty and human rights in China as illustrated by this latest case of the blind dissident and his family. However the Elephant in the Room realities are that (1) political repression in China is in part due to decades of threats and subversion by the US (as well illustrated by pro-Zionist US and Zionist subversion of Australia) ; (2) the sine qua non of successive US Administrations from that of George Washington onwards has been the subversion, domination and exploitation of other people (a major reason for 1776 was "freedom" to extend the Indian Genocide Westward out of the 13 colonies); and (3) the US is perhaps the worst country in the world for human rights abuse of its own people as well as of other people.

Thus, for example, it is estimated that 1 million Americans die preventably each year in the world's richest and most powerful nation (Google "1 million Americans die") and, ignoring the people actually violently killed by the US, the number of people dying avoidably from war- and occupation-imposed deprivation in the American Overseas Empire was recently estimated to be about 0.7 million, half of them children (Google "Hey, hey, USA, how many kid did you kill today? Answer: 1,000").

Just in the Palestinian part alone of the US Protectorate part of the overseas US Empire, 800,000 children are highly abusively confined to what the Catholic Church has described as the Gaza Concentration Camp for the asserted "crime" of being Indigenous Palestinians living on a tiny patch of the country inhabited continuously by their forebears for millennia back to the very dawn of agrarian civilization - indeed prominent UK MP David Milliband (son of anti-racist Jewish parents) has reported that 10% of them are physically stunted from war criminal, US-backed, Israeli-imposed sanctions. China, like most countries, can and should be lectured on human rights - but not by the genocidal, serial human rights-abusing, racist Zionist-dominated US.



On 1 May 2012 re China, “One party deeply divided”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/one-party2c-two-coalitions/3983542 . My comments:

Dr Gideon Polya :

02 May 2012 11:36:18am

The current dramas in the ruling Chinese Communist Party should draw intelligent attention to the notion of "real democracy" as opposed to democracy as practised in the corrupt Indian kleptocracy (1.2 million Indians ruled by and for 100,000 obscenely rich Indians) and the Western Murdochracies and Lobbyocracies (Big Money buys truth, public perception of reality, politicians, policies and votes against real national and global humanitarian interests).

"Real democracy" (achieving what people basically want at a fundamental level) means very low infant mortality and abolition of endemic poverty, this being associated with modest economic security, good governance, good primary health care and high female literacy - things achieved in 1-party China (population 1.3 million, annual avoidable deaths from deprivation zero, 0.3 million under-5 infant deaths annually) but not in "democracy" India (population 1.2 million, about 3.7 million annual avoidable deaths and 1.7 million under-5 infant deaths annually).

Of course one wants see greater security of human rights in China just as one wants to see greater security of the basic human right to life in India and elsewhere in the World. Thus the infant mortality rate in the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China is about the same as in China (19 under-5 deaths per 1,000 births; a huge achievement by China) whereas it is 199 under-5 deaths per 1,000 births in neighboring US Alliance- and Australia-occupied Afghanistan, evidence of an horrendous war crime in gross contravention of the Geneva Convention).

On 1 May 2012 re food security “Food fundamentals”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/2012-05-01/3983544 . My comments:

Dr Gideon Polya :

02 May 2012 10:54:46am

Crucial to any discussion of global food security are:

(1). Man-made global warming that is already impacting water, arable land and food security in Africa (drought) and Asia (floods in Pakistan; sea level rise and increased incidence of high intensity storms threatening mega-delta countries like Bangladesh; the conservatively predicted 1 metre sea level rise this century will displace 1 billion people) (Google "Climate Genocide").

(2). The obscene, legislatively mandated biofuel perversion in the US, UK, EU and (partly) in Australia, is effectively food-for-fuel in a starving world, pushing up food prices with consequent malnutrition and avoidable death from deprivation (but without even decreasing GHG pollution) (Google "Biofuel Genocide"). Already 18 million people die avoidably from deprivation and deprivation-exacerbated disease each year on Spaceship Earth with the greedy, racist West still substantially in charge of the flight deck (see Gideon Polya, "Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950").

3. World Bank analysts recently re-assessed global man-made greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution and found that is is 50% bigger than hitherto thought with the livestock industry contributing over 50% of the higher figure. China leads the world in aquaculture generating fish protein that is about 4 times more efficient in terms of grain to protein conversion than beef (Google "Biofuel famine, biofuel genocide, meat & global food price crisis"). The World should urgently stop consuming meat, alcohol, animal milk, tobacco and of course, anti-science, greed-driven BS.

 

 

 

On 30 April 2012 re “The Office” by Gideon Haigh: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/the-office/3981110 . My comments:

Dr Gideon Polya :

02 May 2012 9:42:51am

A personal story will illustrate substantial superfluity of "The Office". For over 30 years I had an Office that was an integral part of my research laboratory as well as my teaching role as a scientist academic. However after 4 decades of research I eventually retired from "wet" research but kept my hand in teaching second year level tertiary institution science students on a part-time basis. Indeed I was involved in doing the equivalent of the undergraduate teaching of a full-time academic but in 10% of the time and for 10% of the money (my students were evidently paying 10 times too much for their undergraduate tuition). However I variously did this very enjoyable job either without an office, sharing a small office with several other people or indeed a sharing an office desk). En passant, just as Paul Keating collected antique French clocks, I am very interested in people having the same name as me, from the fictional Inspector Gideon of Scotland Yard and Tory UK Chancellor of the Exchequer George (nee Gideon) Osborne (who had the temerity to change his name from Gideon Oliver Osborne at the age of 13) to outstanding German Jewish Latvian violinist and conductor Gidon Kramer and outstanding anti-racist Jewish Israeli journalist Gideon Levy (would that there were more of the latter).

 


On 30 April 2012 re Melbourne Freud Conference, “Violence and psychosis: Why they sometimes go together but often don’t”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/vioence-and-psychosis3a-why-they-sometimes-go-together-but-oft/3980832 . My comments were completely CENSORED by the ABC:

Dr Gideon Polya :

02 May 2012 10:28:15am

Sigmund Freud whose name is honored in the annual Melbourne Freud Conferences had a huge impact on psychoanalysis but is arguably an example of scientific fraud according to the book "The Assault on Truth" by psychoanalyst, Freud scholar and former professor at the University of Toronto, Dr Jeffrey Masson. In short, Dr Masson argues that Freud was aware from studies in Paris that child sexual abuse was an horrific reality (in Australia 34% of women and 16% of men have been sexually abused as children; see the "Little Children Are Sacred" report that was unable to determine the extent of such abuse among NT Aborigines) but because of a botched nose operation on a Viennese socialite lady he opted to maximize his respectability by burying the awful reality and advancing the bourgeousie-compatible notion that claims of child sexual abuse were based on "fantasy".

Dangerous psychopaths are medicated and/or medicated and confined. But what of the high achieving narcissistic psychopaths who make life a misery for millions of subordinates in the workplace or the even more high achieving pro-Zionist, neocon Western psychopaths involved in the commission and denial of (refugees and violent deaths and war-imposed deprivation-linked avoidable deaths in parenthesis) the Palestinian Genocide (2 million deaths, 7 million refugees), Iraqi Genocide (4.6 million deaths, 5-6 million refugees), Somali Genocide (2.2 million deaths, 2 million refugees), Afghan Genocide (5.6 million deaths, 3-4 million refugees plus 2.5 million Pashtun refugees generated by war in NW Pakistan) and Libyan Genocide (0.1 million deaths, 1.3 million refugees, mainly Black Libyans).

On 26 April 2012 re “The revolution in consciousness” and David Brooks’ book “The Social Animal”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/the-revolution-in-consciousness/3973826 . My comments  initially survived in full but were then 50% censored by the ABC:

 

"Professor Thomas Nagel (NYU) writing in the NYT has made the following acutely pertinent comments about pretentious and sloppy NYT columnist David Brooks' book "The Social Animal": "Brooks is right to insist that emotional ties, social interaction and the communal transmission of norms are essential in forming individuals for a decent life, and that habit, perception and instinct form a large part of the individual character. But there is a moral and intellectual laziness in his sentimental devaluation of conscious reasoning, which is what we have to rely on when our emotions or our inherited norms give unclear or poorly grounded instructions."

As a 5-decade career scientist and a pro-peace, anti-racist, rational, agnostic, humanitarian Humanist I must agree with Professor Nagel's assessment. Brooks' NYT columns are replete with "moral and intellectual laziness", Panglossian assertions of living in the best of all possible worlds, and "aren't we nice" or as that much more substantial thinker Basil Fawlty put it: "Don't mention the war" (deaths in the post-1990 Zionist-backed US War on Muslims now total 12 million from violence or war-imposed deprivation and 50% children).

Well said Gideon. Brooks is, in my opinion, a joke, but not a funny one. There are numerous other reviews of his tome even more unflattering, particularly regarding his intellectual pretensions. But he has the 'Right' thing to say, hence his appearance on LNL, nowadays more or less an ideological doppelganger and appendage of Murdoch's News Corpse. And congratulations on the log of censored 'Comments'. Pretty soon it will be quite a definitive record of the petty and nasty mind and thought control that is nowadays such a feature of the ABC, LNL and society in general in this corner of the 'Free World'. Of course, before long, LNL will follow the lead of much of the rest of the ABC and simply never allow Thought Crime to see the light of day in the first place.

Dr Gideon Polya :

28 Apr 2012 12:19:51am

Right-wing Jewish American David Brooks in his "moral and intellectual laziness" (Professor Thomas Nagel, NYU) has not noticed what outstanding anti-racist Jewish and anti-racist non-Jewish scholars refer to as the Palestinian Genocide (2 million deaths since 1936, 0.1 million violent deaths and 1.9 million avoidable deaths from war-, expulsion- and occupation-imposed deprivation; 7 million refugees; 90% of the land of Palestine ethnically cleansed; see "The Plight of the Palestinians" co-authored by numerous, outstanding anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish scholars and writers from Professor Francis Boyle to Dr Paul Craig Roberts; see also "Palestinian Genocide"). For documented compendia of the humane views of outstanding anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish scholars, writers and leaders opposed to racist Zionism and Apartheid Israel's ongoing Palestinian Genocide see "Jews Against Racist Zionism" and "Non-Jews Against Racist Zionism".

David Brooks has also failed to notice the ongoing Muslim Genocide (12 million war-imposed violence- and deprivation-related Muslim deaths in the Zionist-backed US War on Muslims, 1990-2012, and over 20 million Muslim refugees; see "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide") - evidently too much "moral and intellectual laziness in his sentimental devaluation of conscious reasoning" (Professor Thomas Nagel, NYU). For an antidote to David Brooks read "Letter of resignation from the Jewish People" by outstanding anti-racist Jewish American scholar Professor Bertell Ollman (a colleague of Professor Thomas Nagel at NYU).

Unsubstantiated, uncredentialled obfuscation and false, pejorative, defamatory, ad hominem abuse do not constitute sensible interlocution and are the more offensive when made against named persons with the courage of anonymity.

I personally place great store on the words of outstanding anti-racist Jewish intellectuals e.g. Australia's first Australian-born Governor-General Sir Isaac Isaacs: "The honour of Jews throughout the world demands the renunciation of political Zionism"; outstanding Jewish Canadian writer Naomi Klein: "[Some Jews] even think we get one get-away-with -genocide-free card ... There is another strain in the Jewish tradition that says[s] "Never again to anyone""; and outstanding anti-racist Jewish Orthodox scholars Moshe Menuhin, father of similarly anti-Zionist and great musician Yehudi Menuhin: "Jews should be Jews not Nazis" (for numerous like opinions of anti-racist Jewish scholars, and indeed the most outstanding Jewish humanitarians of the last century or so, see "Jews Against Racist Zionism").

The gorgeous music at the beginning and end of Late Night Live is from Elena Kats-Chernin's score for the ballet "Wild Swans". Elena Kats-Chernin (born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan of the old Soviet Union or USSR in 1957) came to Australia in 1975 and we can proudly claim her as an Australian composer. I was recently at a terrific Erik Satie et al concert in Fitzroy, Melbourne given by a percussionist, several pianists, the Astra Choir and the Astra Improvising Choir - one of the improvising singers had an arresting clarity and musicality redolent of and surely inspired by Elena Kats-Chernin's wonderful work.


On 25 April 2012 re “Anzac Day: Australia’s lost generation”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/anzac-day---australia27s-lost-generation/3966358 .My comments survived for a day but were then completely censored:

 

Excellent program well illustrating the utter evil of war implicit in the shocking loss of 60,000 Australian lives in WW1.

Most Australians would not be aware that 24 April is Armenian Genocide Day and commemorated because the rounding up of Armenian community leaders (teachers, priests, doctors etc ) commenced on 24 April 1915 on the eve of the 25 April Allied invasion that took place after months of naval shelling in the Dardanelles. Turkish xenophobia was brought to a deadly level by British Empire and French Empire attacks in the West and Russian attacks in the East. 1.5 million Armenians perished in the Armenian Genocide.


Even fewer Australians would be aware of the direct involvement in of the Anzac Mounted Division in the 1918 massacre of 137 Palestinians and the burning of the village of Surafend near Beersheba in reprisals for an escaping Bedouin thief shooting a New Zealand sergeant (arguably the first atrocity in the ongoing Palestinian Genocide in which 2 million Palestinians have died, 0.1 million from violence and 1.9 million from war-, expulsion- and occupation-imposed deprivation). Australians were involved in the shooting of Egyptian pro-democracy demonstrators in 1919.


Australia has been involved in many other British or American wars in which there were horrendous collateral civilian deaths. Thus in the 21st century alone, post-invasion avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation in Iraq and Afghanistan have totalled 1.2 million and 4.2 million, respectively, under-5 infant deaths have totaled 0.8 million and 2.9 million, respectively, and total war-related deaths are estimated at 2.7 million and 5.6 million, respectively (see "Recall huge civilian war deaths on Armenian Genocide Day & Australian Anzac Day"). Stop all war.

On 24 April 2012 re Bruce Shapiro reporting from Oslo re Breivik: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/bruce-shapiro/3969780 . My comments survived for a day but were then completely censored::

“The extraordinary thing about Mainstream media coverage of the Breivik Atrocity and the Breivik Trial is that while this racist, genocidal, anti-Arab anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, pro-Israel, pro-Zionist mass murderer has set out his views in a 1,500 page Manifesto, the pro-Zionist and evidently Zionist-beholden Mainstream media scrupulously ignore his pro-Israel, pro-Zionist and pro-genocide of the Palestinians position.

This Elephant in the Room reality could not be ignored in Apartheid Israel where the conservative, pro-Zionist Jerusalem Post reported Breivik's attacks on anti-racist Jews in particular (yes, the same decent, anti-racist Jews who are routinely sidelined, censored and grossly defamed in Australia and elsewhere under an appalling new anti-Semitic regime of Zionist-promoted anti-Jewish anti-Semitism applied to decent Jews critical of the genocidal crimes of Apartheid Israel). Google together the words pro-Zionist and Breivik and you will get as #1 out of 420,000 results the Jerusalem Post article entitled "Norway attack suspect had anti-Muslim, pro-Israel views".


The recent ABC TV Four corners program made clear Breivik's anti-Muslim position but failed to mention his pro-Israel, pro-Zionist position, his hatred for anti-racist Jews and his desire to ethnically cleanse not just Norway and Europe of Muslims (genocide) but also Palestine, China, India and other countries. Also ignored by the ABC was that several days before this atrocity the Young Labor Norwegians rallied on Utoya Island with banners in support of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel (for the key image of the event NOT reported by the ABC Google "Palestinian civil society expresses solidarity with people of Norway").”

To see it and my other censored and uncensored posts Google "ABC Late Night Live (LNL) censors listener comments". Indeed, since 10 April 2012 (when I realized that the ABC was censoring listener comments on LNL) the absence of any post by me on an LNL program means that it has been censored out by the ABC, presumably for continuing material the taxpayer-funded ABC does not want its audience to hear, know about or think about - a disgrace that is being widely reported in Australia and overseas.

You are quite correct Gideon. I remember my stupefaction when you appeared on Occam's Razor, at the audacity of some ABC apparatchik in defying Howardite orthodoxy and inviting on a 'truth-teller' (gasp, shriek, attack of the vapours). Your presentation was sobering, as I had often wondered whether anyone had calculated the 'excess deaths' caused by the US Reich's global barbarity, and, indeed, someone had.
Of course you have crossed some real 'red-lines' in our sham 'democracy', particularly that reddest of lines (emphatically so at the ABC)-criticism of the Holy State, Israel, its divine ideology, Zionism, and the activities of Rightwing Zionist Jews. These are subjects that are not only verboten in discourse in this country, but the mere mention of their possible existence, is forbidden as well. As far as the Thought Controllers are concerned Israel is the world's first perfect state that never does anything wrong, Israelis are the world's moral paragons, Jews (apart from those nasty 'self-haters' like Chomsky and Gilad Atzmon) are similarly perfect, and any criticism of these divine entities is simply 'antisemitism' motivated by envy and the 'oldest hate' (to quote a recent, and typical, self-indulgence).

On 26 April 2012 re “The revolution in consciousness” and David Brooks’ book “The Social Animal”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/the-revolution-in-consciousness/3973826 . My comments  initially survived in full but were then 50% censored by the ABC:

 

"Professor Thomas Nagel (NYU) writing in the NYT has made the following acutely pertinent comments about pretentious and sloppy NYT columnist David Brooks' book "The Social Animal": "Brooks is right to insist that emotional ties, social interaction and the communal transmission of norms are essential in forming individuals for a decent life, and that habit, perception and instinct form a large part of the individual character. But there is a moral and intellectual laziness in his sentimental devaluation of conscious reasoning, which is what we have to rely on when our emotions or our inherited norms give unclear or poorly grounded instructions."

As a 5-decade career scientist and a pro-peace, anti-racist, rational, agnostic, humanitarian Humanist I must agree with Professor Nagel's assessment. Brooks' NYT columns are replete with "moral and intellectual laziness", Panglossian assertions of living in the best of all possible worlds, and "aren't we nice" or as that much more substantial thinker Basil Fawlty put it: "Don't mention the war" (deaths in the post-1990 Zionist-backed US War on Muslims now total 12 million from violence or war-imposed deprivation and 50% children).

On 24 April 2012 re “The power of ExxonMobil”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/the-power-of-exxonmobil/3969078 . My comments:

 

 “The quote from ExxonMobil analysts that "Decades from now, oil, gas, and coal will continue to be the most widely used fuels" flies in the face of science and basic humanity.

Thus in 2009 the WBGU, the German equivalent of the expert Australian Climate Commission and which advises the German Government on climate change, released a report that estimated that for a 75% chance of avoiding a 2C degree temperature rise (EU policy; would you board a plane with a 25% chance of it crashing?) the world must emit no more than 600 billion tonnes of CO2 between 2010 and zero emissions in 2050.

However US annual greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution is so huge that it would take a mere 3.1 years for America (3.0 years for Canada, 1.1 years for Australia, relative to 2010) to get to zero emissions. It is obviously not going to happen under climate criminal US Administrations (Republican or Democrat) but the science and "all men are created equal" says it must (for details Google "Shocking analysis by country of years left to zero emissions").”

 AND

"To spell that out a bit more clearly, the US annual GHG pollution is so huge that it would take it only 3.1 years for it to emit its "fair share" of the terminal global GHG pollution budget of 600 billion tonnes i.e. 314 million Americans x 600 billion tonnes CO2/7,000 humans = 26.9 billion tonnes CO2."

 

On 24 April 2012: re “India becoming”: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/india-becoming/3970218 . My comments:

 

“Interesting interview. From my personal perspective as one with numerous family and other Indian connections this rapid cultural change has already happened to Indian societies in places like Fiji, Malaysia and, as most brilliantly conveyed by Nobel Laureate V. S Naipaul ("The House for Mr Biswas") and his brother Shiva Naipaul, to the Indian societies in Trinidad, the West Indies, Africa and the UK.

Thus a pathway in Fiji is from slave labor ("5 year indentured labor" slaves on British and Australian sugar cane plantations" to small farmer/bus driver/taxi driver/ merchant to lawyers, doctors, and teachers. A dear friend remembers the whip-marks on her mother's back from Australian oversees. As exampled by dear friends of mine, the transition can be quite quick from plantation slave and thence free entrepreneur to top lawyer or medical specialist in the next generation and even more professionals in the next.

The transition is much more difficult in India where 80% of people live in grinding poverty under a ruthlessly corrupt kleptocracy (read the Booker Prize-winning novels "The White Tiger" by Aravind Adiga and "The God of Small Things" by Arundhati Roy) in which about 4 million Indians die avoidably from deprivation each year (an annual avoidable death rate of 0.4% as compared to 1.8% for Indigenous Australians in Murdochracy and Lobbyocracy Australia; for the Awful Truth see Gideon Polya, "Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950").”


On 23 April 2012 re Dangerous politicians, US suicides & homicides: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/dangerous-politicians/3966390 . My comments:

 

“Dr Gilligan's analysis is concerned with the causality of intentional violent deaths from suicide or homicide in the US but from a scientific or Humanist perspective one should be looking at the causality of ALL preventable deaths.

Thus it is estimated from US CDC and other data that 1 million Americans die preventably each year, fundamentally because successive neocon American- and racist Zionist-dominated US Administrations preferred to commit $5 trillion this century to killing 9 million Muslims abroad (by violence or war-imposed deprivation) rather than keeping Americans alive at home (Google "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide").

The breakdown of these i million annual American preventable deaths is 443,000 (smoking), 300,000 (obesity), 75,000 (alcohol), 45,000 (lack of health insurance), 33,000 (vehicles), 31,000 (guns), 30,000 (suicide, 20% veterans), 21,000 (under-5 infants), 21,000 (opiate drug-related deaths from US Alliance restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry) and 15,000 (homicides) (Google "1 million Americans die preventably").

The homicides and suicides to which Dr Gilligan confines his attention (why?) total 45,000, a mere 4.5% of the total. And of course, there is no mention of the 0.7 million people (half of them children) killed passively by the US Government in the off-shore American Empire through war-imposed derivation each year (see "Hey, Hey, USA, how many kids did you kill today? Answer: 1,000").”

 

On 23 April 2012 re Coal’s rural impact: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/coal27s-rural-impact/3967454 . My comments

 

“The devastation of the rural Australian landscape is the least of the coal perversion impact on (1) Australia and (2) the World.

1. Australia. It is estimated from Canadian and New Zealand data that fossil fuel burning is associated with about 10,000 Australians deaths annually from carbon particulates and other toxic pollutants, the breakdown being about 5,000 (coal burning for power), 2,000 (vehicle exhaust) and 3,000 (other carbon burning, excluding bushfires) (for details Google "Australian carbon burning-related deaths") .

2. World. In 2009 the WBGU which advises the German Government on climate change estimated that for a 75% chance of avoiding a 2C temperature rise (EU policy; would you board a plane with a 25% chance of it crashing?) the world can emit no more than 600 billion tonnes of CO2 between 2010 and zero emissions in 2050. Australia (population 22 million, 1.4 billion tonnes CO2-e pollution annually) had used up its "fair share" of this terminal pollution budget by mid-2011 and is now stealing the entitlement of countries like Somalia and Bangladesh (see "Shocking analysis by country of years left to zero emissions").

It gets even worse. According to ABARE and Geoscience Australia, Australia's actual coal reserves probably total over 1 trillion tonnes. Given Liberal-Laboral (Lib-Lab) Gadarene commitment to burning or exporting all our coal, the CO2 from combustion of all of this coal would be about 1,766 billion tonnes CO2 or 3 times the terminal CO2 pollution budget for the whole planet i.e. the Lib-Labs are saying that Aussies = 7,000 million x 3/22 million = 955 non-Aussies in terms of polluting the one common atmosphere of the world. This egregious Lib-Lab climate racism beats Calwell's "Two Wongs do not make a White" by a factor of about 55.”

AND

 

“Correction: the last sentence of my post above should read "This egregious Lib-Lab climate racism beats Calwell's "Two Wongs do not make a White" by a factor of about 500."


Elliot Perlman, LNL, 19 April 2012: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/elliot-perlman/3957810 .Comment:

"Elliot Perlman's "The Street Sweeper" is on my book club reading list. We have already done his lengthy but very readable "Seven Types of Ambiguity" that took its title directly from "Seven Types of Ambiguity" by William Empson, an influential 1930 book about literary criticism that launched the New Criticism school. In short, the Perlman novel involves the same story seen by 7 different characters, a scenario presumably inspired by his legal background and carried off without perturbing reader interest. However the novel, like many other literary works, could have been greatly shortened if all the characters had simply sat down together and had some meaningful conversations with each other.

As for the the reference by LNL to "the Holocaust" in "The Street Sweeper" it must be noted that the WW2 Holocaust was not just the Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million killed, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation) but had a larger dimension of 30 million Slavs, Jews and Gypsies killed by the Nazis. Further, in addition to the European Holocaust (30 million killed) there was a WW2 Chinese Holocaust (35 million Chinese killed under Japanese occupation) and a WW2 Indian Holocaust or Bengali Holocaust (6-7 million Indians deliberately starved to death by the British with Australian complicity in 1942-1945; see Dr Gideon Polya's "Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History", Tom Keneally's "Three Famines" and Dr Madhusree Mukerjee's "Churchill's Secret War"). Indeed the Bengali Holocaust was the first WW2 Holocaust to have been referred to as such (by N.G. Jog in his 1944 book "Churchill's Blind Spot: India".

"Holocaust" involves the death of a huge number of people but the racist Zionists have appropriated this term to only apply to the Shoa (the Jewish Holocaust), a catastrophe in which the Zionists themselves were notoriously complicit (collaborating with the Nazis, opposing haven for Jewish refugees anywhere else but Palestine, getting Churchill to veto the Joel Brand plan to save 0.7 million Hungarian Jews). Genocide is very precisely defined by the UN Genocide Convention as "acts committed with intent to destroy in part or in whole a national, ethnic, racial or religious group" and is what is being carried out by the Zionist-backed US Alliance from the Libyan Genocide and Somali Genocide in the West to the Afghan Genocide in the East (see "Muslim Holocaust, Nuslim Genocide"; 12 million war-related Muslim deaths from violence and war-imposed deprivation since 1990).

In referring to the ongoing racist Zionist Palestinian Genocide, outstanding anti-racist Jewish Canadian writer Naomi Klein has stated "There is a debate among Jews - I'm a Jew by the way. The debate boils down to the question: "Never again to anyone or never again to us?"... [Some Jews] even think we get one get-away-with-genocide- [free card. ...There is another strain in the Jewish tradition that say[s], 'Never again to anyone” (see Jews Against Racist Zionism”)- cut off by word limit]”

 

Justice and the enemy, LNL, 18 April 2012: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/justice-and-the-enemy/3958668 . Comments censored:

“A good question of how we bring killers to account when they are national governments and more specifically the national governments of the racist Zionist-backed US Alliance involved in the War on Muslims that since 1990 has been associated with 12 million Muslim deaths from violence and war-imposed deprivation (the breakdown being 4.6 million, Iraq; 5.6 million, Afghanistan; 2.2 million, Somalia; 0.1 million, Libya; 0.1 million, Palestine (for details and documentation see "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide").

Genocidal racist and pro-Zionist Anders Breivik killed 77 people (mainly anti-Zionist Young Labor Norwegians) but advocates the complete ethnic cleansing (genocide) of Muslims from Norway, Europe, China, India, Thailand, and Palestine. The US Government was almost certainly involved in the 9-11 atrocity (3,000 killed), with likely Apartheid Israeli involvement, according to science, engineering, architecture, aviation, military and intelligence experts (for a compendium of such expert opinions see "Experts; US did 9-11"). However the governments of the racist Zionist-backed US Alliance are also complicit in the deaths of 12 million Muslims since 1990.


All of these mass murderers should be exposed and brought to justice but the Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist (NAZI)-beholden Western media censor the genocidal, anti-Arab anti-Semitic pro-Zionism of mass murderer Breivik; accept and promulgate the "official version" of 9-11 from endlessly lying successive US Administrations, while censoring palpable 9-11 realities; and ignore the horrendous US Alliance genocidal atrocities (war-related deaths in MILLIONS in parentheses) of the Palestinian Genocide (2.0), Iraqi Genocide (4.6), Afghan Genocide (5.6), Somali Genocide (2.2) and Libyan Genocide (0.1).


Anti-racist Jewish British Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter in advocating war crimes trials for Bush and Blair stated: "How many people do you have to kill before you qualify to be described as a war criminal and a mass murderer? One hundred thousand? More than enough, I would have thought" (see "Art, Truth and Politics"). 12 million? More than enough, I would have thought.”

Mummies unwrapped, LNL, 18 April 2012: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/mummies-unwrapped/3956168 . Comment:

“The Ancient Egyptians drew the human form in the most exquisite way. Their stylization of the hand (all fingers being of the same length) is quite elegant and matched by Peter Paul Rubens who had the big toe and its neighbour about the same size, the next 2 toes smaller but equal sized and the little toe barely represented. As a figurative artist Quixotically trying to find a "unique" stylization of human form, I have been inspired in particular by the Ancient Egyptians, the Ancient Greeks, Botticelli, Modigliani and Schiele.

A sweet feature of the recent Tutankhamen exhibition in Melbourne was a very elegant concubine displayed on the foot of a large sarcophagus, with a very similar elegant concubine portrayed on the foot of a very small sarcophagus for a dead infant.

A more serious aspect of Egyptian art was propaganda with an outrageous example being Ramses II's artists portraying the supposed great Egyptian victory over the Hittites at the Battle of Kadesh whereas the Hittite record says otherwise. Thus C.W. Ceram in "Narrow Pass, Black Mountain" (1955) describes the Ramses-inspired malreportage of Kadesh as "shameless falsifications of history". Today Mainstream media in the Western Murdochracies and Lobbyocracies shamelessly ignore the 12 million victims since 1990 of the racist Zionist-promoted US Alliance War on Muslims (see Gideon Polya, "Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History).”

 

Calvin Trillin,   LNL, 17 April 2012: : http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/calvin-trillin/3956654 . Comments censored:

 

1. “This bland Calvin Trillin interview with Phillip Adams puts me in mind of a commentary by progressive, anti-war, anti-racist Jewish American Philip Weiss on Mondoweiss about Jewish American Calvin Trillin being interviewed by Jewish American journalist Brooke Gladstone over his coverage of the Freedom Riders 50 years ago: "The segment was a bath of moral affirmation. Trillin reflected on the tension between being an objective reporter and knowing that what he was covering was wrong, and Gladstone extended the civil rights movement to the victory of gay marriage in New York, saying in essence, this is the same struggle and, gosh, we have been on the right side both times ... The tone of the segment was self-congratulatory: look at the progress our society has made, and we have been in the vanguard. But of course there was not a word about the Palestinians... Trillin said that geography was destiny back then: if you were from Louisiana you were a racist, couldn't help yourself. And I wonder, To what extent is Jewish geography destiny? If you are a mainstream liberal Jewish person, you are doomed to paralysis on the great moral question of our time and place."

Calvin Trillin, like the ABC and other Mainstream media of the Zionist-subverted Western Murdochracies and Lobbyocracies, avoids the Elephant in the Room realities of the following genocidal atrocities in the Zionist-backed War on Muslims (violent deaths and avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation plus numbers of refugees in parentheses): the Palestinian Holocaust and Palestinian Genocide (2.0 million deaths, 1936-2012, 7 million refugees), Iraqi Holocaust and Iraqi Genocide (4.6 million deaths, 1990-2012, 5-6 million refugees), Somali Holocaust and Somali Genocide (2.2 million deaths, 1992-2012, 2 million refugees), Libyan Holocaust and Libyan Genocide (0.1 million deaths, 2011-2012, 1.3 million refugees, mostly Black Libyans), and the Afghan Holocaust and Afghan Genocide (5.6 million deaths, 2001-2012, 3-4 million refugees plus 2.5 million Pashtun refugees generated in US robot drone-bombed NW Pakistan) (for the Awful Truth Google "Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide"). What a disgrace. However many anti-racist Jews do speak out (e.g. see "Jews Against Racist Zionism") but are sidelined, censored and grossly defamed for their trouble, most notoriously under the obscene and repugnant new anti-Jewish anti-Semitism of Zionist-subverted White Australia.”

 

2. The ABC has an appalling record of censoring the views of decent anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish humanitarians who speak out against the Palestinian Genocide and like anti-Arab anti-Semitic atrocities in the Zionist-backed US War on Muslims (12 million war-related Muslim deaths from violence and war-imposed deprivation since 1990; for details and documentation Google "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide"). In the latest instance of which I am aware, Late Night Live continues to censor humanitarian anti-racist Jewish opinion on this thread, in this instance criticism by outstanding anti-racist Jewish American Phillip Weiss over the silence of many Jewish American liberals over the gross, genocidal maltreatment of the Palestinians by Apartheid Israel (90% of the land of Palestine has been ethnically cleansed; see "Palestinian Genocide" and the book "The Plight of the Palestinians" co-authored by numerous anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish scholars and writers, notably including outstanding humanitarian writers such as John Pilger, Uri Avnery, Robert Fisk, Jonathan Cook, Stephen Lendman and Professors James Petras, William Cook, Ilan Pappe, Adi Ophir, Francis Boyle and Richard Falk).

New BRIC bank, LNL, 16 April 2012: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/new-bric-bank/3949456 . Comment:

“Well said, Mulga - remorseless Western thanatophilia (love of death) indeed that continues unspoken because of remorseless greed, racism and mainstream media, academic and politician lying. I am a biological chemist and 9 years ago published a huge pharmacological text entitled "Biochemical Targets of Plant Bioactive Compounds. A pharmacological reference guide to sites of action and biological effects" (859 pages, 4 indexes, 500 pages of detailed tables; Taylor & Francis, CRC Press, London and New York, 2003). The biological effects included killing people and hence thanatology (study of the causes of death) was intrinsic to this huge pharmacological work. I extended this thanatological aspect to consider avoidable death of fellow humans in a book "Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950" (2007) that you can now read for free on the Web (you need a licence to read the electronic version of "Biochemical Targets of Plant Bioactive Compounds"). In short, 18 million people presently die avoidably each year from deprivation and deprivation-exacerbated disease and 1.3 billion people have died thus since 1950 on Spaceship Earth with the US (and its malignant instrumentalities such as the World Bank, the IMF, USAF, the CIA, child-killing Marines, US lackey White Australia etc) in charge of the flight deck. The BRICS proposal is a welcome advance. Thus, while the West brought slavery, war, colonialism and latterly neocolonialism and more war to Africa, the Chinese part of BRICS has brought peaceful and life-saving economic development on a huge scale. The endemic poverty in the Indian part of BRICS is criticized by decent humanitarian people (e.g. see Arundhati Roy) but it should be noted that the annual avoidable deaths as a percentage of population is 1.8% for Indigenous Australians as compared to 0.35% for India and 0.97% for non-Arab Africa.”

 

 

The Spinoza problem, LNL, 16 April 2012: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/the-spinoza-problem/3953234 . Comment: 

Spinoza was a 17th century forerunner of the Enlightenment and was excommunicated from Judaism for his rational views. However this process of excommunication of rational Jews continued into the 20th century and is a repugnant reality in the 21st century in race-based, genocidal, nuclear terrorist, racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel which refuses entry even as visitors to anti-racist Jews.

Thus Professor Noam Chomsky (from 77 Nobel Laureate MIT), Professor Richard Falk (from 35 Nobel Laureate Princeton University) and Professor Norman Finkelstein (sacked from from zero? Nobel Laureate Catholic De Paul University at the behest of racist Zionists) were excluded from visiting Palestine by Apartheid Israel for being outstanding anti-racist Jews (Google "Jews Against Racist Zionism").

A much loved teacher relative of mine sought official excommunication from Judaism in Hungary for the sake of her family in the 20th century (Jews were excluded from university and employment otherwise), her father-in-law having done this in about 1880. Hungarian law demanded an official excommunication and as part of this she was cursed by the officiating rabbi in Hebrew Hungarian and Yiddish.

My relative's course of action was partly successful because all her children, though not her husband, survived the Zionist-complicit Jewish Holocaust in Hungary in 1944-1945, 3 finding eventual refuge in Australia. All but a dozen of her relatives (half of them Catholic conversos) were murdered, including her nephew Dr Gabor Ervin who as a Catholic priest tried to save fellow Jews from the Nazis and the Arrow Cross (Hungary's top university celebrated the memory of this martyred priest and psychologist in a symposium in January 2012).

Topically, her husband was a very famous Hungarian surgeon, her brother-in-law was a very famous Hungarian mathematician and her cousin Dr Edith Bone's book "Seven Years Solitary" (recounting 7 years as a prisoner of the Hungarian Stalinist secret police) was a great inspiration for Burmese democracy campaigner and Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi (as recounted in her recent Reith lectures).

1. “Well said, Mungo [sic; I meant Mulga] . Nicolas Sarkozy is an utterly disgusting, pro-war, pro-US, pro-Zionist, neoconservative, anti-Arab anti-Semitic, Islamophobic xenophobe who has dirtied France during his Minsiterial roles (2002-2007) and presidential roles (2007-2012) in racist, warmongering French Governments that repeatedly invaded other countries in that period (Cote D'Ivoire, Afghanistan and Libya) as well as providing shameful support for the Zionist-backed US War on Muslims that since 1990 has been associated with 12 million violent deaths or avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation, the breakdown being 4.6 million (Iraq, 1990-2012), 5.6 million (Afghanistan, 2011-2012), 2.2 million (Somalia, 1992-2102) and 0.1 million (Libya, 2011-2112), this appalling carnage being reflected in refugees totalling 5-6 million, 3-4 million, 2.0 million and 1.3 million, respectively (for the Awful Truth that is not reported by the neocon-, US- and Zionist-subverted ABC Google "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide").

A dear relative lived in France just after surviving the Nazis in Hungary and was disgusted with the Vichy French who had a comfortable war collaborating with the Nazis (she nevertheless subsequently taught French in an Australian school for rich girls, translating their Gillardesque "wear gunna go do our blice" to "nous allons chez nous"). I share her disgust. Now New Vichy France under war criminal Sarkozy wants to do another Libya in Syria. Nicolas Sarkozy and his confreres Bush, Blair, Brown, Cameron, Obama, Merkel, Harper, Howard, Rudd, Gillard and their underlings should be arraigned before the International Criminal Court (ICC) but that won't happen because the ICC is a passive accessory to horrendous US Alliance war crimes.

Let's hope that the long-suffering French people get rid of this disgusting little neocon war monger and xenophobe”.

As will be presently apparent to a reader of this ABC censored comment thread, my carefully researched comments were disgracefully censored out by the neocon American and Zionist-subverted ABC, presumably for containing things that the ABC does not want its audience to know about or think about, but can bee seen if you Google "LNL censors".

 Women in Cambodia, LNL, 12 April 2012: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/women-in-cambodia/3947054 . Comment:

 "I was transiently astonished by Phillip Adam's comment to the effect that "we got things right in Cambodia" but then reality clicked in and I realized that I was listening to the Orwellian ABC (for related matters Google "ABC Censorship" and also "Censorship by the BBC"). No we didn't, we were part of the US-led Indo-China War Machine that dropped more bombs on Laos than were dropped on Europe in World War 2; did likewise in Cambodia; and devastated Vietnam over 2 blood-soaked decades.

Indigenous Asian violent deaths and avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation in post-1950 US Asian wars (in all of which Australia has participated) now total about 36 million (see my book "Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950"). For Cambodia 1975-1980 excess deaths totalled 1.2 million, and 1965-1998 excess mortality totalled 3.9 million (see ibid, Chapter 6; now available free on the Web).

Most people in look-the-other-way, Lib-Lab Australia don't even exercise the benefit of hindsight but back in about 1970 I, my partner and a mate joined half a million decent Americans in Washington protesting the bombing of Cambodia that was to devastate Cambodia and lead to the the Cambodian Genocide under the Khmer Rouge. We were kindly accommodated by a judge who had participated in the Nuremberg Trials.

But that was back then when ALL decent people objected to ALL crimes against Humanity. These days the West turns a blind eye to its own atrocities or if pushed will provide excuses such as "collateral damage" and Gareth Evans' disgusting R2P ("Responsibility to Protect"). For a cogent, them-and-us, "we don't do war crimes" expose by 2 outstanding American scholars see "The Politics of Genocide" by Professor Edward S. Herman and David Peterson who in essence describe how Western media determine that genocide is only committed by enemies of the US Alliance."

 

Mugabe’s Zimbabwe, LNL, 11 April 2012: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/zimbabwe/3944140 . Comment:

 “Well said, Mulga. The book "The Politics of Genocide" by American scholars Professor Edward S. Herman and David Peterson details how the US-dominated world media automatically define atrocities by typically non-European "enemies" of the US as "genocide" while simultaneously ignoring horrendous war crimes by the racist Zionist-subverted US Alliance in Palestine, Libya, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Thus 12 million Muslims have died from violence or war-imposed deprivation in the post-1990 US War on Muslims ( see "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide") and 2 million Palestinians have been killed since 1936 from violence (0.1 million) or from invasion-, expulsion- and occupation-imposed deprivation (1.9 million) (see "Palestinian Genocide", "Jews Against Racist Zionism", and the multi-author book "The Plight of the Palestinians").

While Robert Mugabe's crimes against humanity have soiled his legacy as a leader for Zimbabwean independence from the evil of British colonialism, the horrendous crimes of the British cannot be ignored. Thus 1950-2005 avoidable deaths from deprivation in countries variously occupied by the racist, genocidal British in the post-1945 era total 727 million; the corresponding avoidable mortality carnage linked to occupation by other countries is 142 million (France), 82 million (US as occupier), 72 million (Netherlands), 36 million (Belgium), 37 million (Russia), 24 million (Apartheid Israel), 23 million (Portugal) and 9 million (Spain) (see Gideon Polya, "Body Count.

Memoirs of a child Holocaust survivor, LNL, 11 April 2012: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/memoirs-of-a-child-holocaust-survivor/3944290 . Comment:

 “I certainly look forward to buying and reading psychologist Dr Dasia Black's book "Letter from My Father". Minimizing the chance of such atrocities being repeated means that such books need to be written and read. However such books also have a message for how people can cope with life in vastly gentler environments. I was unable to put down the best-selling book "Man's' Search for Meaning" by Jewish Austrian psychiatrist Viktor Frankl about the messages for life from his experiences in surviving Auschwitz.

A German Australian writer Ella Blum (a nurse with the German Arbeitdienst during WW2) has written a book "A Billionaire's Daughter", an account of life in Germany as a girl post-WW1 and thence as a young woman in Nazi Germany. Except for the final couple of years of the war, this book describes the sheer normality of her life under Nazism with the message to people today of how we can be utterly deceived by the lies of our corporate, media, academic and political Establishment.

Australia has been involved in the Palestinian Genocide (2.0 million violent and war-related deaths since 1936, 7 million refugees, abolition of Palestinian human rights) for over 70 years (financial contribution toward the Palestinian Genocide is tax-deductible whereas donations for the 800,000 children incarcerated in the Gaza Concentration Camp could attract life imprisonment under the 2005 Australian Anti-Terrorism Act). Post-invasion under-5 infant deaths in the Occupied Palestinian, Iraqi and Afghan Territories have totalled 0.2 million, 2.0 million And 2.9 million, respectively, 90% avoidable and due to Zionist-backed US Alliance war crimes.”

Anti-racist Jews are in the forefront of those protesting these continuing war criminal atrocities (for such humane opinions see "Jews Against Racist Zionism") but are horribly defamed, threatened and censored under a new anti-Jewish Anti-Semitism in Australia and the West.”

 

 “Thinking the 20th century: the life and work of Tony Judt”, LNL, 10 April 2012: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/thinking-the-20th-century3a-the-life-and-work-of-tony-judt/3941710 . Comment:

 "The late Professor Tony Judt belongs to that set of decent humanity that are the wonderful anti-racist Jews. For a selection of his civilized views about genocidal, race-based Apartheid Israel and the ongoing Palestinian Genocide see the alphabetically-organized compendium of anti-racist Jewish opinion from Hannah Arendt to Howard Zinn entitled "Jews Against Racist Zionism". Of course these anti-racist Jews have been falsely defamed by lying racist Zionists as "self-hating Jews" and "anti-Semites" (see "Strenger than fiction - Tony Judt's Jewish identity" Haaretz (progressive Israeli newspaper), 16 August 2010).

Tony Judt (2003)argued for a unitary, "binational" Palestinian state like post-Apartheid South Africa and decried the Palestinian Genocide and "the cost of becoming the first modern democracy to conduct full-scale ethnic cleansing as a state project, something which would condemn Israel forever to the status of an outlaw state, an international pariah" (see "Israel: the alternative" by Tony Judt) . Race-based, war criminal genocidal, racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel has now 90% ethnically cleansed the land of Palestine, only 6% of 12 million Palestinians can vote for the government ruling all of Palestine plus the near 100% ethnically cleansed Golan Heights, and 6 million Palestinians are forbidden to even live in Palestine.

Tony Judt was also critical of Zionist-beholden Mainstream media who are too scared to report these appalling realities (see "A lobby, not a conspiracy" by Tony Judt). Indeed in Australia anti-racist Jews are subject to a repugnant new Zionist-derived anti-Jewish anti-Semitism involving sidelining, censorship, and gross false defamation. Zionist-beholden Mainstream media, politicians and academics in Australia and the West ignore the horrible realities of the Zionist-backed US War on Muslims and the horrible genocidal realities of the Muslim Genocide (violent and deprivation-related deaths and refugees in parenthesis): Palestinian Genocide (2 million deaths since 1936, 7 million refugees), Somali Genocide (2.2 million deaths since 1992, 2 million refugees), the Libyan Genocide (0.1 million death since 2011, 1.3 million refugees, mostly Black Libyans), the Iraqi Genocide (4.6 million deaths since 1990, 5-6 million refugees) and the Afghan Genocide (5.6 million deaths since 2001, 3-4 million refugees plus 2.5 million Pashtun refugees generated by US war in NW Pakistan) (Google "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide")."

 

 

Bruce Shapiro, LNL, 10 April 2012: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/bruce-shapiro/3941890

 

Bruce Shapiro and the Dart Center for Journalism & Trauma (of which he is Executive Director) have a small but laudable civilizing influence on a Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist (NAZI-dominated United States. Indeed conservative progressive, Jewish Holocaust survivor, Jewish Holocaust hero, billionaire, Open Society philanthropist and Hungarian Jewish American George Soros has criticized the neocon and Zionist lobbies and has has called for the de-Nazification of America.

The death penalty is barbaric but also subverts a fundamentally important process of the criminal justice system, that of getting to the truth of the what and why of criminal atrocities in the interests of risk management to minimize societal risk. Judicially murder innocent or guilty people and you lose the ability to further investigate the what and the why and hence diminish societal safety.

Judicial murder is fortunately quite rare in the US. Thus in 2010 46 people were executed (Google "Capital punishment in the United States"). In contrast, over 1 million Americans die preventably each year in the United States, the breakdown of these preventable deaths (some categories overlapping, some not immediately preventable) being 443,000 (smoking), 300,000 (obesity), 100,000 (from hospital-acquired infections), 75,000 (alcohol), 70,000 (air pollution), 45,000 (lack of health cover), 33,000(vehicles), 31,000 (guns), 30,000 (suicide, 20% being of US veterans), 21,000 (under05 year old infants), 21,000 (opiate drug-related deaths from US restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry from 6% to over 90% of world market share), and 15,000 (homicides).

As for the bias against African Americans in the US Justice system and implicit in the above data (see "One million Americans die preventably annually in USA"), one notes that a white male American born today has on average a life expectancy of 74.8 years while for Black males it is 67.7 years. Of course this is not as bad as in the ongoing Aboriginal Genocide of racist White Australia - the life expectancy gap between Indigenous Australians and Australians as a whole is about 17 years (Google "Indigenous life expectancy").


On 12 April 2012 LNL broadcast interviews relating to the coming French presidential elections: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/france/3946832 .

1. I posted the following comment in response to a civilized, humanitarian, honest and evidently well-educated  interlocutor who goes by the nom de plume “Mulga Mumblebrain”. Unfortunately  Mulga’s comments were censored out by the ABC as were my comments that are reproduced below:

2. I subsequently posted the following comment, which has survived so far:

 

“Correction to my Freudian slip of "Well said, Mungo" (one of my favourite Australian journalists) - I meant "Well said Mulga".

 

3. After these posts were removed , Mulga posted the following comment:

 

“Thanks Gideon-Mungo is a hero. What do you think of being 'disappeared' by LNL's 'Thought Police'? Ain't 'free speech' wunnerful!!”

 

4. I posted this further comment (subsequently censored):

Still here after three days. Someone's slipping up.

 

Final observations: The way this censorship has been applied to Mulga and me (and perhaps to many other decent anti-war, anti-racism Australians) leaves clear evidence of the censorship, quite possibly  as a warning to other commenters that unless they stick to the line of  the neocon American- and Zionist imperialist-subverted ABC they will be censored out too. I am writing a book called “ABC Censorship. What the ABC does not want you to know”. Examples, including these,  are being posted in the public interest. on a website entitled “ABC Censorship”.

For anti-racist Jews and indeed all anti-racist humanitarians the core moral messages from the Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million dead, 1 in 6 dying from deprivation) and from the more general WW2 European Holocaust (30 million Slav, Jewish and Gypsy dead) are “zero tolerance for racism”, “never again to anyone”, “bear witness” and “zero tolerance for lying”.

However these sacred injunctions are grossly violated by the anti-Arab anti-Semitic racist Zionists running Apartheid Israel and their Western backers variously involved in the ongoing Palestinian Genocide, Iraqi Genocide, Somali Genocide,  and Afghan Genocide (post-invasion violent and non-violent excess deaths 0.3 million (1967-2011), 4.6 million (1990-2011), 2.2 million (1992-2011) and 5.6 million, respectively; post-invasion under-5 infant deaths 0.2 million, 2.0 million, 1.3 million and 2.9 million, respectively; refugees totalling 7 million, 5-6 million, 2 million  and 3-4 million, respectively, plus a further 2.5 million NW Pakistan Pashtun refugees).

All decent, anti-racist, humanitarians must vigorously oppose and sideline those supporting racist Zionism, Apartheid Israel and racist Western wars and occupations who are currently complicit in  0.7 million non-violent excess deaths annually; continuing, racist perversion of human rights, humanitarian  values and rational discourse in the Western democracies; ignoring of worsening climate genocide (that may kill 10 billion non-Europeans this century through unaddressed man-made climate change); and egregious anti-Jewish anti-Semitism through sidelining anti-racist Jews, defamation of anti-racist Jews and falsely identifying decent, anti-racist Jews with these appalling crimes.

Outstanding Jewish American scholar Professor Jared Diamond in his best-selling book "Collapse” (Prologue, p10, Penguin edition) enunciated the "moral principle, namely that it is morally wrong for one people to dispossess, subjugate, or exterminate another people" – an injunction grossly violated by racist Zionist (RZ)-run Apartheid Israel and its racist, genocide-committing and genocide-ignoring US Alliance backers.
