What is happening to Andrew Bolt is the exact reason why we need ACT to act


I am thrilled that David Seymour  is prepared to discuss immigration with the Whaleoil community. He mentioned that when he has attempted minor changes to immigration he has been attacked by the media and not supported  by us. What is currently happening to courageous Andrew Bolt in Australia is exactly the reason why I want the ACT party to act more strongly on immigration. The reality is that anyone who points out the serious problems within Islamic culture will be attacked, not only by the media but by people within the Muslim community. This cannot be a reason for the National party and the ACT party to do nothing. Instead, it has to be the reason why they make strong immigration policy a priority.

It is clear that when we criticise Islam we risk death. We need politicians like Geert Wilders who are prepared to put their country’s safety first. Like Andrew Bolt, we here at Whaleoil have put ourselves at risk by criticising Islam. I expect the political party I support to be prepared to do the same. Nothing worth having is ever easy. I will support and promote in my personal posts on Whaleoil any political party with strong immigration policies regarding Islam. Copying the Swiss policy regarding citizenship and assimilation would be a good start.

Andrew Bolt says he has moved children out of family home after death threats

Bolt says threats came from Islamic State supporter and follows his newspaper column for Herald Sun which suggested if ‘we criticise Islam … we risk death’

Andrew Bolt says his children have had to be moved out of the family home after receiving death threats from a supporter of Islamic State.

The News Corp columnist made the revelation on Thursday night during an interview with Pauline Hanson on his Sky News Australia program, The Bolt Report.

“I just spent some of my day moving my kids out of my home after yet another death threat from an Islamist supporter of Islamic State,” a visibly upset Bolt told Hanson.

“Two of my colleagues have had to move house completely because of these guys.”

A spokeswoman for News Corp declined to comment on whether the “colleagues” were journalists with the newspaper company or Sky News presenters.

The threat came the day after Bolt wrote a column for the Herald Sun condemning a letter written by the Grand Mufti of Australia following the prime minister’s Iftar dinner for Muslim leaders.

Bolt said the letter proved Hanson was right to “feel threatened by Islam in this country”.

Hanson told Bolt she was calling for a royal commission into Islam in Australia.

“Ibrahim Abu Mohammad has written an astonishing letter warning that to criticise even a gay-hating imam is to risk inciting terrorist attacks against us,” Bolt wrote.

“His inflammatory letter perfectly demonstrates why Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was a fool to hold an Iftar dinner for the Mufti and other troubling Muslim leaders during the election campaign.

“Again and again, whether the Mufti means this or not, the clear inference is that if we criticise Islam or his clerics, we risk death,” Bolt said.

“What free society can tolerate such an implied threat or danger? How can the Mufti not see that the true responsibility for Islamist terrorism lies not with the victims but with the perpetrators – and with the faith which seems to ­licence them to mass murder?”

In the interview with Hanson, Bolt angrily accused race commissioner Tim Soutphommasane of double standards for warning that Hanson’s anti-Muslim and Asian comments could unleash hatred, division and violence.

“And Tim Sou … what’s his name … Soutphommasane, if he’s really worried about hate preachers and violence in the streets, why doesn’t he say something about these hate preachers and the violence they inspire?

“I’m sorry to lose my temper it’s been a very stressful day.”
