Criminal Profile of Racist Judge

13-06-2009 09:14

Denying institutional discrimination and racism by Australian government and High Court Australia is akin to Holocaust Denial.

We have Justice Kirby (High Court Australia) branding the French High Court racist against Aborigines, and now we have our former Telstra boss calling Australia racist and backward hicks. In addition, we have international students being physically assaulted.

Its the racists right up the High Court Australia, dog whistling to the rednecks.

In preparation for the Queen's Birthday, we are in the process of preparing a case against our glorious Queen and her servant Chief Justice French and PM Kevin Rudd for violation of international laws and its own Consitution, and fraudulently and stealthly instituting White Australia Policy. They allow judicials and federal employees like Senior Member John Handley (AAT) and counsels Time de Uray, Joe Lenzcer, Paul Mentor continually to pervert justice and fabriating evidence.

A little over a year after the 23 house and office searches culmintating in the arrest and 3 ½ month imprisonment of 10 animal rights activists, the repression seems to have no end.

But not quite as planned...
