The Melbourne Herald-Sun dropped a political bombshell on Saturday, December 6. In an article entitled "Health Activists On File", the paper reported on the activities of an extreme-leftist campaign cooked up to supposedly 'Defend And Extend Medicare'. The usual leftist suspects were there: Dr. Joseph Toscano, Stephen Jolly, Jacob Grech, Julie Jones, Pamela Curr, the International Socialists - and lo and behold, one "co-convenor", Brendan Bride. From there it only got worse!
The December 6 article was actually the second 'bomb'. On the previous day, it was revealed that Tony Abbott, the new Minister For Health, fresh from his dirty-tricks campaign against Pauline Hanson, was right on the job 'against' the Defend And Extend Medicare group. It was said that "intelligence" agents had briefed him on the Toscano-Jolly organization and that they did no less than brief the Herald-Sun as well. Such obliging people, the ASIO spooks! So nice to note Abbott, the operator of a private Liberal Party shadow-structure of his own, getting down into brawl over "intelligence" information concerning a public campaign on health issues.
Obviously, the involvement of an intelligence agency (ASIO) and Abbott's use of intelligence here and in the past, warns us something big is happening. As much as the extreme-leftists may not like to hear it, the state power was only too happy to indulge them when they ran the hate-Hanson violence in 1997-98, but they must be reined in when their activity is inconvenient. But if we spot anything untoward at any other point in the public circus, we are right to raise serious questions. We must do so now , particularly if these extreme-leftists have offered their hand to a seeming (former) player in Melbourne's 'extreme-right', Brendan Bride. We use the media and Left's term 'extreme right' for effect! When asked by the media about his politics, he replied: "I have been involved in other issues" and then went on to detail a certain environmental-campaign in the Mornington Peninsula. He said he was happy his daughter was involved in demonstrations against the Iraq war. However, Mr. Bride was not being truthful, at least in the sense of telling the whole truth.
Did ASIO tell the Herald-Sun about Mr. Bride's 'extreme-right' connection? Does Abbott know, and if he does know, why is he silent? Has Mr. Bride told Messrs Jolly and Toscano? Do they care? Or is it all a game? If Mr. Bride simply a campaigner on the Medicare issue iwilling to work with the likes of Jolly, was he concerned about Jolly's role in fomenting violence against One Nation, the party he previously supported? In any case, how did Mr. Bride become a co-convenor of such an organization alongside of Toscano and Jolly? How did they all meet? How did the group come into being? Is it a public campaign group working for a good cause, or a classic leftist 'front'? And where does that leave Mr. Bride? The questions and many more besides, demand answers.
It is a matter of fact that Brendan Bride has been an activist with the Australians Against Further Immigration and the One Nation party and has worked with other patriotic activists. He is now in interesting company. Either Mr. Bride is on the patriotic side and doing-a-number on the leftists (in which case we are at fault for revealing this and accept the consequences!), or he was in the company of his own true friends and co-thinkers, or he has never had any firm politics, or it is all some covert game on his part - or for others? It staggers belief to accept that Mr. Bride is, by his words, simply a person concerned over the government attack on Medicare; if he was this, he would not accept the kiss-of-death alliance with the likes of Toscano and Jolly. It is also beyond belief that these leftists do not know Mr. Bride's background, or would not have had these facts told to them by the usual 'linkages' with media or political police elements, if he was - some sort of infilitrator of a leftist campaign. It goes to show they know all about it and it doesn't disturb them one degree. And with ASIO hovering about with Abbott, there is the feeling about that someone is being screwed around. Whose game is this?
It is Mr. Bride's prior acquaintance with two other Melbourne 'rightist' identities, Mr Dean Clarke and Mr. Ross Diggins, which broadens the question out. The latter two have in the past, operated their own mini security service decked out in neat black 'uniforms' in 1998 - 2001 (a second Melbourne 'Men In Black' - but no relation to the anti Family Court campaigners!!), a structure put in place ostensibly to protect the meetings of patriotic organizations. They have become fixtures on the Melbourne patriotic scene for over a decade and have been accepted into some groups as members. They have also been instrumental in causing difficulties inside other groups. Their 'careers' have also been included threats of violence and actual violence, directed not at their supposed 'enemy', but at nationalists and patriots. The questions and suspicions which have hung over them for years are now pressingly urgent. Now, there is no evidence Mr. Bride has had anything to do with these illegal actions associated with Clarke and Diggins, and we do not allege it. Rather, we are saying that certain 'odd' people assembled at some of the same places at similar times. There is now a cloud over Mr. Bride for his present connections and what he does say (as below) about Clarke and Diggins leaves the matter as dark as ever. Alarm bells are ringing everywhere.
We are now engaged in an on-going investigation and we expect this article will be modified as further evidence becomes available. Essentially, it is time to fight back against wrecking and spying operations and pursue the matter, regardless of where the truth leads, right through to the end.
This article is also inter-active. As it was being composed (news of it leaked very quickly once we corresponded with certain persons!), we heard of protests from those who would be criticised and we were criticised directly by Mr. Bride. We listen (in every way), but will not be deterred from getting the truth. Undoubtedly, as this article is set down in stages, there will be more explosions and we shall write all this into the evolving text. That process is also new and matches the purposes of The Kangaroo Reich page. We reproduce below our correspondence from Mr. Bride:

ABOVE WEB PAGE HEADED: Selected Materials On Australian Neo-Nazis.
Material Titled (article 17): The Melbourne 'Men In Black'. A Conspiracy Unravels. The Strange Careers In the Patriotic Scene Of Dean Clarke, Ross Diggins, Brendan Bride.
I have advice that I have been libelled and possibly criminally libelled. That I have been falsely and malicously discredited and defamed. The most serious consideration is the false inference that I am a Neo-Nazi. This by virtue of your including my name in material on this webpage and in the context of your article heading and stated purpose of the page.
I categorically state that I am not a Neo-Nazi, never have been nor will I ever be a Neo-Nazi. Your informants, the perpetrators of this rubbish are either, mindless conduits for malevolent provocateurs with ulterior motives, or worse, knowing doctrinaire propagandists with a hidden agenda. Either way, they have no regard for the truth.
I am acquainted with Messrs Clarke and Diggins, but have had rare contact with them socially in more than five years and have had no active political involvement with them whatsoever. (A conspiracy unravels?) Guilt by association? McCarthyism. YOU people ought to know better.That is providing that you don't have a secret agenda.
I have not been politically involved for many years, at least five, but recently have become involved in local community issues including the universal health care debate. I am a co-convenor of a non party political, non profit, single issue, grass roots Medicare lobby group. Is it a crime to defend Australians' universally popular health system? The Health Minister seems to think so. He must be the only Minister in the Western world who thinks that universal health care is a left wing cause.
I am not a political cheer leader and push no barrow for any political party, group or organisation on the left, right or centre.
I request that you remove any references about me from this website. Your source of information is flawed. Further publishing could see very serious legal proceedings instigated. I suggest you obtain legal advice on what you have already published and be one hundred percent certain of your facts if you intend publishing any more material on me.
If you reply with a contact phone number I am prepared to discuss this matter with you. In the meantime I hope you see fit not to publish any further.
Sincerely, Brendan Bride
The One Nation party had the effect of melding many patriotic groups. It was initially uncertain which way it might go. The political police could not be sure if it might not become a nationalist party and with the presense of many nationalists within it, that option was to be cut off at all costs. In that way the media regularly exposed (sic) the passage into the party of any persons regarded as 'extremists'. Australia-Israel Review led the hate campaign against the Spencers. And, as One Nation opted to take the respectable road, such people were to be removed.
Interestingly, when the Hanson apparatus finally set out to expel Robyn Spencer from the party, Bride was right there offering "resistance" (as one key player put it) to Hanson's foolishness. In point of fact, he was right on the spot assessing who was with whom and what the lines of approach might be in the wake of this schism. Earlier, at a 1998 conference of the party, Mr. Bride was active securing votes for Mrs. Spencer for Victorian president in league with Diggins and Clarke.against a Hansonite, Mr. Kavelenko. Siding with one 'faction' against another might have been a sincere expression of political persausion, or it might have been an old ruse employed by wreckers. The reader must decide!
When Spencer was expelled (the first time!), a meeting was called at the home of the Spencers in May 1999, Mr. Bride was there. He would have taken note of all the resistants!
Mr. Bride's current association with the advocates of mob violence against One Nation is strange indeed. He must know their human character from the time when he 'served' One Nation.
The turmoil in the Melbourne patriotic scene caused by the activities of the One Nation party - and the assorted responses to those activities - continued. It carried through with the re-admission of the Spencers to One Nation and their final expulsion in 2002. As for Clarke, he changed targets, finding himself in 2002 in the company of The Great Australians which intended to form a Melbourne branch. As it was no branch was founded. Supporters of the party had the view Clarke was there to spy on them. What was his motive in being at the discussions? He has since dropped all interest in the party.
To be continued
The Targeting Of The League Of Rights
In 1999, the Clarke-Diggins circus made a concerted attempt to move in on the Australian League Of Rights (LOR) in Melbourne. This involved the offer of help to steward-protect meetings and, when 'old Tom' passed in the job on the tape-recording service, the takeover of that function by Mr. Diggins. It cannot be said he has done the best service. Did he intend to?
We note that, in the last couple of years, there has been a seeming downturn in the activites of the LOR in Melbourne. The special 'service' role of the LOR should continue in that city, yet this is difficult when the 'Conservative Speakers Club' fails to meet.
The struggle to remove Diggins from the League is of course, something which can only really be carried out by its loyalists. However, in the situation where pro-Australian organizations (of whatever complexion) are targetted by alien forces, it is the duty of any and all patriotic groups to do something in their defence. It is the duty of one group with information to tell the others. In that spirit, the following letter was directed to the LOR on December 15 2003:
State Director (Victoria), Australian League Of Rights, Melbourne
I must bring to your attention a matter which may compromise the security and integrity of the League Of Rights in Victoria.
I refer to the article in the "Health Activists On File", Herald Sun, December 6 2003. This article reported the activities of a Mr. Brendan Bride, who now publicly acts in conjunction with various Trotskyites and ultra-leftists in Melbourne.
It is a matter of record that Mr. Bride was in the 1990's - an active member of the Australians Against Further Immigration and the One Nation party. It is now reasonably the case he had another - and secret - agenda. It is also well known that Mr. Bride has had a close friendship with Mr. Dean Clarke and Mr. Ross Diggins. I understand the latter person has occupied a position of trust with you.
As you are aware, there has been a certain controversy surrounding Messrs. Clarke and Diggins. This ongoing contention has involved allegations against these individuals of conspiracy to commit violence, property damage, threats of violence and so forth. There have been long-standing public documents issued by one group suggesting the involvement of a police agency in orchestrating these persons in an exercise in disruption.
The current affair with Messrs. Bride, Clarke and Diggins will cause an Internet publication to appear by next Monday. This item will ultimately appear at www.alphalink.com.au/~radnat/kangarooreich/partseventeen.html
This document will say (amongst other things) that the patriotic movement in Melbourne has been the victim of a sustained Dirty-Tricks operation.
I trust the League will launch its own inquiry into the activities of the named persons and protect itself from disruption.
Yours sincerely, Dr. Jim Saleam
It has long been observed both by nationalists and the old-style Left, that Trotskyites have a very bad habit of ending up in alliance (open or otherwise) with liberal-capitalist forces. This is graphically illustrated by the Democratic Socialist Party which campaigns against protecting Australian jobs; it does so on the pure-marxist logic (!) that this means supporting a group of protected capitalists. Conclusion? Allow capitalism to level the playing field as that brings the glorious day of communist revolution just that little bit closer. Crazy! In practise the supposedly anti-globalist Trotskyites who scream so much at protest rallies - have the same policies as the capitalists! It is our belief that the big business class recognised that the Trotskyites and their feral allies could occasionally be used and operations were put in place to get their compliance on certain issues from time to time. Even the anarchist Toscano uses the slogan 'no globalisation without direct democracy'. Conclusion? Toscano is a globalist when it comes to opening borders for capital, migrants and refugee / asylum seeker scum - but quibbles over who should run the gravy train! This shows us too, that Toscano can end up a peg-boy of the political police!
Look at the 'Defend And Extend Medicare' leaders. The anarchist Toscano, who is so keen to twist and pervert the history of the great Eureka Stockade into an exercise in anarcho-democracy, finds himself in alliance with 'anti-racist' Labor Party stooge, Al Grassby on this very sordid rewrite-of-history campaign. Stephen Jolly, the impressario of the Socialist Party, was permitted to organise anti One Nation rampages in 1997-8, because that served the state interest. The International Socialists, who freely 'interviewed' Mr. Bride for Socialist Worker, and morons to the last, have more than once found themselves taking guidance (orders?) off anti-racist/anti-fascist (sic) David Greason, a former psycho-ward patient whose connection with the Zionist Australia-Israel Review should have caused 'good communists' to wince. The extreme-left has an independent identity - yes. It can play at its own independent politics - yes. However at certain times and places it finds itself used by the state for specific purposes. Yet, to guide the 'militants', there must also be a few deliberate agents.
The nexus of Trotskyites with state agencies and Zionism is a fact of life in Europe. A few years ago, the British 'Anti-Fascist Action' organization, an extreme-leftist body implaccably opposed to all forms of nationalism and patriotism, said that the Trotskyites serve as a sort of street-level intimidation force for the social democratic parties and the political police with the Zionists in the background providing "intelligence on the right-wing" (sic) usually through some public 'anti-racist' front-man. It was argued that the Trotskyites simply lack the discrimination to know when they are being used.
It is actually Stephen Jolly who has let the whole game out of the bag. In his Refugees, Racism And Capitalism In Australia, he actually confessed:
"Hansonism was defeated by a combination of radical action from thousands of young people and workers in the cities who protested outside her meetings and opposition from sections of big business who feared her poison would upset their trade with Asia."
At last! Mr Jolly, please explain, please explain, please explain! Does this mean, if we strip away the rhetoric, that Jolly (among others) used their Trotskyite networks to call out (bamboozle) young people, incited them to act violently, in a defacto alliance with the capitalists against Hanson? That is exactly what Jolly means. His confession is our point here. On occasion the capitalists use people like Jolly; in other periods they are free actors who can upset the major parties and require to be leashed again.
Of course, at this point of time, the Trotskyites and their feral allies are running a campaign about Medicare. It reaches out to the public and keeps the cadres 'cooking' along. They're primed, ready for the next time the state may need them as pseudo-bully-boys. Yet, at the moment, they could turn out to be public nuisances and a threat to the secret Liberal Party plan to privatise every aspect of the sickness industry. The Liberals may choose therefore - to strike at the Left. It is a complex relationship. Yet it pays off to keep HMAS Tough Left Radical - on course.
The Truth As A 'Radical' Weapon: Solution To The Dirty-Tricks Operations.
It is our view that the Melbourne nationalist and patriotic scene, the 'extreme-right' of media fiction, has been the victim of dirty-tricks operations for years. We equally have no doubt that the Left, when it acts independently, is also targetted; and when it falls into line, is 'steered' by agents towards violence and confrontation with the 'extreme right'. This is not a paranoid view, but a realistic view, and as more facts reveal themselves, it becomes even more arguable. It is all about management of opposition and political dissent. Even so, many people find this sort of dirty-war difficult to understand and refuse to confront the facts. This latest affair clears some of the fog.
For those who have been compromised by what was obviously a long-running campaign of espionage or disruption campaigns, by some persons named in this article, it is imperative the following measures are taken:
1. All groups affected by the operation should provide further information to bolster content of this article and copy and circulate it in hard copy and electronic versions .
2. All groups so affected should contact the others, exchanging data and documents.
3. The named persons should be expelled from any patriotic organization of which they retain membership and no further official contact should exist. Members of the groups should be warned against any further contact with them.
4. This affair should cause patriotic parties and associations to exchange data regularly and once a person or group is exposed in one group, advertise the fact, and not allow the person to acquire a membership with other groups.
With common sense and application, the Men In Black and their black-bag-operation and other operations, will be consigned to defeat. It demands a real effort in Melbourne to end informer-provocateur activity. We have utter confidence that the hour of reckoning is at hand!
