ASIO raids Labor’s “obsolete scum of white Australia” MP

Ah, Labor, via Domain:

Counter-espionage agency ASIO is conducting a sweeping investigation into allegations Chinese government agents have infiltrated the office of a NSW Labor politician to influence Australian politics.

Multiple sources aware of the foreign interference investigation said it was scrutinising the office of NSW Labor MP Shaoquett Moselmane as part of one of the most significant inquiries in recent ASIO history.

As part of the inquiry, the federal police raided properties linked to Mr Moselmane on Friday morning, searching for evidence to support allegations of a Chinese government plot unfolding on Australian soil.

The sources said if sufficient evidence was found, the inquiry could ultimately result in an Australian and world first: a prosecution for foreign interference offences arising from an alleged covert Chinese Communist Party plot to influence a serving politician.

…Security expert Neil Fergus said: “ASIO would not take this step lightly.”

Moselmane was hardly hiding his views, a few months ago he wrote for the East China Normal University about COVID-19:

“At the same time, the Australian government was hesitant, lacked direction, and responded slowly and confusingly.”

“We appreciate the serious attention, timely and effective countermeasures against the threat of coronavirus taken by the Chinese authorities and the Chinese community in Australia.”

But in his February piece, Mr Moselmane savages Australia’s “mainstream media” for having “publicly played racist cards, offending and insulting many Australian citizens, especially Chinese residents” in actions that “further deepened the already great suffering of the victim”.

“Today, the obsolete scum of ‘white Australia’ is once again flooding, and the theory of yellow fever has once again surfaced,” he wrote.

If his office has been “infiltrated”, they haven’t done a great job of teaching Moselmane how to go about it.

Poor hapless LAbor.

    • Guilty as accused according to Macro and it’s readers. Countries don’t suddenly become authoritarian & fascist, they slip into it with the noisy majority onboard.
      Find/ create a common enemy, increase government powers because of the enemy, turn the peoples police force into a private police force to be used on a whim by politicians to do their dirty work. Check mate! we are there.

      • Politician who said anyone who criticises the CCP is racist scum caught with links to a CCP plot and Chinese agents in his office. I’m sure it’s just one big misunderstanding.

        Imagine being this much of a CCP apologist

        • Sieg Heil! One of the suckers are you? Cannot think independently, just one of the masses “going along with it”.
          What is next? My guess more laws to shift power (not that we have much power left) from the people to the elite.
          Anyone not onboard the anti china hate campaign “must be one of them”, “you are either with us or against us”, Sieg heil!

      • First, they came for the public servants who think “obsolete white scum” is acceptable speech in this country.
        Then, everyone lived happily ever after. The end.

        • I have no idea what he said or who he is. What he said is irrelevant, another fascist way is to target people on what they say because you disagree with them. By target I mean send the police or dig dirt to try to get a person locked away for a long time or simply discredited legally. Secret trials, threats to the media.
          Do you have a problem with free speech? I don’t I prefer even non violent racist comments to freedoms being taken.

          • >I have no idea what he said or who he is.
            so, talking out your arce then eh. Very opinionated for one so removed from the situation.

            He might be charged if a police officer considers there is sufficient evidence, if the DPP considers there is sufficient evidence he or she has a discretion whether to prosecute or not, he may face a magistrate who will decide if there is sufficient evidence to send him to trial, should there be a trial the trial judge may uphold a no case to answer submission, then if that barrier is overcome a jury of his peers may not find the charge proven. The process could be challenged in the court of appeal and failing that he may win in the High Court. It worked for a certain Cardinal. Fascist??? I don’t think so. You could always compare it to the Chinese system.

    Labor seems to have scandal after scandal. If they were the party of Australian workers rather than recently arrived migrants they might have had a kind of immune system to fight off this stuff. As the party of progressive multiculturalism they have nothing.

      • How could a sane person really want the country to be run by labor at this point in time.

        Morrison’s making all the right noises on this but this shizzle has seemingly going on for ages ‘Gladys Liu‘ , wasn’t ASIO similarly advising the PM about Gladys, guess you only get raided in opposition.

  2. The fact that a Labor MP can be pre selected when the societal faction they belong to hates with a special kind of vitriol for the ordinary majority of Australian citizens.

    Moselemain and the moles …..good name for a band
    ……not an inept bunch of traitors …..hope they find all the Aldi bags and bang him and his infiltrators up for a good spell of porridge….now that should get the global times fuming

  4. That “obsolete scum” para is clearly written by a non English speaker, and the usage sounds Asian to me. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it was written for him and he just passed it on.

    Death to traitors, and all that.

    Moselmane is (further) proof of CCP infiltration and as such should be investigated and – as appropriate – prosecuted, but your post is frankly appalling and I am surprised that DLS allows pure racist crap like that to be posted on this blog.

    • Labelling me is fine, it makes no difference to the facts and the truth.

      I welcome you to post any evidence that this population of individuals and their progeny have actually contributed anything or provided any benefit to Australia.

      • Luca BiasonMEMBER

        The facts and the truth you say, does it imply that you are their repository? Where’s the evidence to your small claims?

        I also welcome you to post that stuff with your real full name attached to it, and not hiding behind bullshit profile names, Mr Brave.

    • “Pure racist crap” – I can see he doesn’t like Lebanese muslims as a cohort and has expressed such. He also doesn’t like Mr Moselmane at all.
      Would you care to offer another opinion so the audience may get a balanced view.

  6. NSW Labor leader Jodi Mackay has asked the party to suspend Mr Moselman.

    Would have thought that the appropriate time for suspension was when he referred to some of his constituents ‘Obsolete white scum.’

    Witch Hunt
    Timed exactly to coincide with the Eden Monaro Election.
    ScottyFromMarketing & Dutton have both got their names written all over this one.

    FOI will reveal when this was initiated and how it aligns with the timing for the Eden Monaro election

  8. What is it with these first generation migrants who enter politics? They all seem to be doing the bidding of China. Their allegiance to this nation seems questionable at best. Gladys Liu, Dastyari and now this bloke. Maybe it’s time to change the constitution and allow only Australian born people into our parliament.
