The heartrending tragedy of Andrew Bolt, the most persecuted man in Australia

Andrew Bolt, the most-read columnist in Australia, who occupies the airwaves both visual and auditory for two hours every weeknight, is marginalised and underprivileged. And he has a sad, you guys.


Bolt 784x495

Poor Andrew Bolt. The man is billed as Australia’s most-read columnist. And he’s certainly the most prolific (he has a blog updated several times a day, a twice-weekly column syndicated across the News Corp tabloid network, a nightly TV show and a nightly radio show). But he doesn’t do it for love. Rather, he’s compelled to speak out — he’s the lone soldier in a one-man culture war against the elites who would seek to silence him, and through him, the voices of the “real Australia” (his phrase) he claims to represent.

    as long as he gets media oxygen, he is happy. Bolta has nothing to give to a civilized society.

    Bolt claims to argue ‘only what I know is true’ .. and then claims “.. In fact, it was the Left, who in Germany voted for National Socialist leader ..” presumably in 1933. In fact the Left was represented by the SPD and the KPD , and – even though the Reichstag had been torched 5 days prior to the election – the Nazis needed the votes of their coalition partner the DNVP to get a working majority. The rest is history.
    In Bolt’s world, it’s OK to be rude and it’s OK to be wrong if it suits your narrative.

    The biggest glass jaw in the game.

    … Thanks god for Bolt who has the “courage” to tell NASA and pretty much all serious scientific institutions that the have the maths wrong on global temperature. It’s impossible to take the man seriously when he continuously claims he is the voice of reason when he is simply a professional troll providing comfort to a frightened and ignorant group in public seeking to blame others for their lot.

    Here’s a suggestion. Maybe on one day Bolt could write a column and the next day he could argue with himself. Cut us out of the equation. Win Win.

    Are his readers so dumb, that they don’t know where he’s coming from?

      And who’s more elite – and indulged – than one of Rupert’s Golden Ones?

      Indubitably, else he’d not be paid bigbuck$ to continue churning out his malicious, malevolent mendacity.
      Clickbait rools and Blot is de Man.

    I find it hard to understand how he can continue to deny the stolen generation. It’s like arguing against the holocaust. It happened. I have at least two friends who were stolen.

    1. Joe Fitzpatrick

      In his defence, he doesn’t deny individual cases – just a wholesale government policy. It’s all semantics anyway – there didn’t need to be an official nationwide program – racism and prejudice were effective enough in creating the stolen generation.

    He’s pretty noisy for someone who’s being silenced.

    He’s white noise with a glass jaw. No one serious takes him seriously.

      But he is Murdoch’s super Troll.

    I think it is funny that a guy who lives in inner-Melbourne, counts Gina Reinhart and Rupert Murdoch as friends, fancies opera and modern art, has a blog, a column, a book, a TV show and radio program disparages others as ‘elites”.
    The guy is a phoney.

  12. Mary Henderson

    I occasionally read his blog to find out what is currently upsetting him. Lately a great proportion seems to be his complaint about how the Left is in league with Australian booksellers to hide copies of his latest book on the lowest shelves thereby preventing his hordes of fanbois from ensuring its rightful place at the top of bestseller lists.

  13. Joe Fitzpatrick

    Devine, Panahi, Bolt et al seem to ignore the fact that they dominate mainstream political opinion-writing; yet they indulge in the myth of the ‘lone voice of reason’ in a maelstrom of leftiness. What always amuses me is how they rail against the “chattering classes”. Precisely what, pray tell, do THEY do for a living?

    The shock jocks mantra: the more we hate -the better we rate.

    So stop persecuting him Myriam, you monster!

  16. richard ryan

    OH! Stop you lot, he will be off to Rupert, telling him we are smearing him again.
