Violence at Kates’ book launch

I’ve heard reports of actual fisticuffs at Steve Kates’ book launch. Andrew Bolt was attacked by left-wing thugs. Word is that Andrew fought off his attackers, and has it on tape – expect to see an awesome Bolt Report tonight.

Update I: From Andrew’s blog

… masked Left-wing protesters attack me outside a Melbourne book launch. Police are now looking for a Left-wing fascist with a big bruise on his face and another between his legs. They also want to speak to a tubbier protester once he’s stopped running. We’ll show the video tonight.

STEVE NOW ADDS: You hear that Andrew has been attacked and you fear only the worst but while this time they went off worse for wear, it is a true worry that this is our world now. We are people for whom words, argument and reason are what counts, but for the psychopaths on the other side they have nothing to offer but vacuous cliches and violence.

The afternoon, in spite of its start, was fascinating and I enjoyed hearing Andrew’s views on Trump and the massive problems we face. We are in a war, but it is our own modern Thirty Years War which no one today can be certain of its outcome. As for my book, we sold out every copy. But let me just mention this which is a comment from the earlier post advertising the launch:

It’s everything you say it is. I enjoyed it immensely. Good luck with the launch.

So thank you to Mique who has become the first person to have actually read and then comment on the book.

Update II: Bill Thompson recorded Andrew’s speech at Steve’s book launch.

    Here’s hoping Bolta clobbered the stupid fascist douches.

  2. Uh oh

    As they say, “all publicity is good publicity”. I imagine this will only give Steve’s book sales a bit of a boost.

  3. custard

    Why is this not surprising?
    Its incredible really. A book launch about a foreign President is gate crashed by a bunch of leftist thugs in Melbourne.
    I hope they sue their asses off!

    “Violence at Steve Kates’ Book Launch”

    The world grows seemingly ever more insane by the minute.

  5. John64

    If that’s true, I hope that on this occasion he really was Andrew Bold.

    And I’m sure Fatty Ashton has already got a crack squad of his best and brightest on the case investigating and ready to press assault charges. Not sure whether that would be against Blot or the left-wing thugs though.

  6. custard

    Hopefully the intrepid Bill Thompson was down there with Go-Pro camera and has the lot on video.

    It is time for the right to start kicking heads.

    Bolt has been forced to move house by muslims and is now physically atacked be leftists in public.

    And get arrested. The police hierarchy don’t like violence.

    Wrong! Australia is. The world, starting with the US, is sobering up.

    How do ‘we’ do the job? Baton charges? Pepper spray?

  15. Motelier

    Perhaps we will Andrew the Bold, not Andrew the Fold as we have seen in recent weeks.

    Nothing like the threat of pysical violence to stiffen the jaw and strengthen the backbone.

  16. Helen

    Typical.

    Can’t reason with logic so in with the jackboots. Badge of Honour, Andrew. I hope Steve biffed a few, too.

  17. Motelier

    We will see.

    That was on s and two e’s that went missing.

  18. Bill Thompson

    Yes, I was there with my GoPro but I’d arrived early & was upstairs having a vino when someone came in & said Andrew had just been jumped downstairs. By the time we looked over the balcony, there was nobody to be seen. Andrew came upstairs, with multi-coloured stains on his shirt & in his hair & still managed to deliver a great commentary & intro for Steve’s book. I hope I can post a video of that later. Bill T

    Probably no witnesses other than AB. And the ‘stainers’ probably have a strong alibi.

  23. Louis Hissink

    Another micro-revolution in Mexico ?

    … but all of us, …, have to accept that violence at conservative book launches is a part of a contemporary Australia.

  29. Oh come on

    The left is highly emboldened. They seem to think they are untouchable and are beginning to overreach.

    The situation is excellent.

  30. Libby Zee

    Ok – 4 mins too long between looking and typing. I see Bolts report upthread now.

  31. feelthebern

    Bolta kicked someone in the balls?
    Very unbecoming.

  32. feelthebern

    Given Ashton’s history, the plod will arrest Bolta tonight while he is on air & in the clink within hours.
    The protesters will not be pursued until years pass & by that time they will have jobs on the ABC.

  33. Northshore Redneck

    I wouldn’t have thought Bolt would have it in him.

    He has just been physically assaulted by two thugs and fought them off, then proceeded to fulfil his commitment to help Steve’s book launch.
    And your standing to critique his courage is…?

    VICPOL will count it as an industrial dispute and ABC will report it as right wing extremist starts riot.

    LOL. Once upon a time would have been a satirical comment, but now…………

    Au contraire. Bolta is a decent size & has the balls.

    Well done.

    Gunner or Carpe, get in here and get a sweep going on Bolt’s ninja skills:

    a) Kick to the nuts

    c) Channeled the Orbmaster and grabbed him by the pussy while screaming “Covfefe!!”

  41. Leigh Lowe

    If Blot managed to get in a good kick to the cods – well done, Sir!

    I’ve had to correct you before John64.
    In 2017 it is not a “kick in the cods”.
    It is “fast-track assisted transitioning”.

    The vision of this alleged attempted assassination will no doubt be as keenly dissected and forensically investigated as the Zapruder film.

  47. Dr Fred Lenin

    These dedicated members of giliards soshalist alliance taking a day off work to protest against an anti u,n,communist book ,being gravely assaulted by a right wing terrorist . They only outnumbered him two to one not fair socialist odds ,they should have taken more notice of the odds on QA . Kicked in the goolies that comrade will remember Steves book launch ,with a bit of luck the bastard will mot be able to breed more dole bludging fascists .

  48. Bolta might turn into a shrinking violet occasionally but you wouldn’t pick a fight with him, unless you’re a dumb ass leftard. It’s pretty hard to piss off a Dutchman but you’ll get clobbered if you do.

  49. Up The Workers!

    Dodgy Dans’ “Ashton’s Circus” clowns will possibly turn up after 90 minutes or so (once they’ve finished smoko, according to Union rules).

    They could have been there quicker, but they got held up by a procession of Apex Gang hi-jacked cars travelling in convoy through a red light.

    An awful experience for Bolt. I surmise it was an attack deliberately aimed to get him, rather than any of the other people there. These attackers are Nazis. And that is not an OTT statement. It is fact, as their political behavior indicates.

  57. Can’t wait for the video. Generation snowflake bumps into two fisted reality. It’s a little bit different to attacking someone from behind the safety of a keyboard. It actually hurts.

  62. FOLLOWING LONDON TERROR ATTACKS POLAND MEP MAKES STATEMENT THAT WILL SHOCK AND ANGER LIBERALS EVERYWHERE…THE GOVERNMENT IN POLAND HAS FIGURED OUT THE SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT TERROR ATTACKS THAT THE REST OF WESTERN EUROPE HAS YET TO FIGURE OUT.
    The only way to protect Poland from terrorist attacks is by not allowing Islamic migrants into the country, Polish European Parliament deputy Ryszard Czarnecki has said.
    His comments follow an attack in London on Saturday which killed ten, including three suspects, and injured at least 48 others.
    Czarnecki, who hails from Poland’s conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party, said terrorist attacks were often carried out by children of “Islamic migrants” – many of them citizens of European countries – who were trained by the so-called Islamic State.“Other countries have led to a situation in which those trained on Islamic State territory in Syria, Iraq – young people with French, Belgian, Dutch, British, German citizenship – return to Europe … and somehow [the authorities] were incapable of monitoring them,” Czarnecki said.
    “We, Poland, are learning from the mistakes of others … and we will not open our doors to Islamic migrants,” he added.Czarnecki also said that recent attacks in the UK aimed to influence the result of British parliamentary elections, which will be held on 8 June.
    Saturday’s attack was the third in the UK in recent months.Czarnecki advised Britain to remove “radical migrants”, saying: “If a radical Muslim leader calls his brothers-in-faith at the mosque … to fight with the unfaithful then I believe there are grounds to expel that Imam”

    Does anyone still remember those Polish jokes? I think the stupid Pole characters should be replaced with stupid Australian character.
    Does anyone know a funny joke featuring Malcolm?
    Oops, he is a joke – but not funny.
    Just imagine if Tony or Pauline said that!!!!!

    e) turned into Chuck Norris

  65. Marcus Classis

    I assume that:

    1. Bolt will be arrested and charged with illegal self defence.
    2. The attackers will be located by VICPOL:
    – the one with black’n’blue nadgers will be gently fellated by the Premier and Police Commissioner live on TV to an accompaniment of harpyshrieks and interpretive lesbian dance from the Victorian Femenazi Screamers (formerly the Victorian Police Choir),
    – the tubby waddler will be immediately employed by the ABC,
    – and the other one will resume his place in the Senate as leader of the Greens.

  69. PASSENGERS on a Virgin Australia flight from Sydney to Albury jumped 1.2 metres from the plane onto the tarmac after being told to “get out and run, run, run” as soon as the plane landed.
    A passenger on the 8.05am flight told AAP that passengers were urgently evacuated as soon as the plane landed at Albury Airport on Tuesday morning.
    The doors of the plane were said to be “ripped off” and passengers were told to leave their luggage.
    A 30-year-old male passenger on the 68-seater turboprop was arrested on the tarmac and taken away by police. He has been charged this afternoon with send document threatening death or grievous bodily harm and give false information person/property in danger. The offences if proven carry maximum penalties of 10 and five years in jail respectively

    A 30-year-old passenger of unknown colour or origin, but probably Episcopal Presbyterian……

    And they’d walk with a limp for the rest of their lives.

  73. I was at the launch. Bolt spoke well but at the end he let down his public mask and really let fly at the idiot thugs that jumped him, words that cannot be repeated here. He was visibly emotional which is to be expected after a fair rush of adrenalin followed by segueing straight into a speech without pause.

    When I arrived at the launch I noticed a young, bearded, and obviously gamma male photographer lurking outside. Obviously there as part of the set up. What a bunch of twits.

  74. Mother Lode

    The existence of Andrew Bolt will be banned, since it generates disharmony and police cannot guarantee people’s safety.

    There is a reason the justification included therein seems so familiar.

    Pelosi: ‘Children Know More About’ Global Warming Than Trump Admin

    How do you counter such ignorance? Not only ignorance but a rejection even of debate – where the weight of scientific evidence can be presented and compared.

    I know of many of the advisers who have provided input into Trump’s climate policy, they are smart and highly qualified people. Yet one of the most senior Democrat politicians think they know less than children do.

    The incomprehension is almost impenetrable.

  76. Bruce of Newcastle

    Can’t wait for Jon Paine’s and the Age’s tut-tutting about Bolta’s “violence in the face of robust protest”.
    If this had been someone telling a rag-head on a tram to ‘go back where they came from’ it would be running on high rotation on every news service and Das Projekt, with Tubby launching a posse of his crack SJW troops to track them down.
    When it is socialist left thugs engaging in actual physical violence, it will be dismissed as the “cut and thrust of robust protest” and “a gross and violent over-reaction by Bolta”.

    Stupid lefty fuckheads are not used to people fighting back. Oh the horror!

    I’m guessing that Bolta was advised to invest in some self-defence training a while back. If so, money well spent.

  89. custard

    I’m watching Bolt on replay so am about 15mins behind the live broadcast and he did show a grainy bit of cctv at the start of the show and it would seem Andrew really clobbered at least one or two of these dickheads.
    Really solid punches, well done Andrew.

  90. Driftforge

    A guard of honor, so to speak.

    If anything is learned from the American experience of these things, it is that the right has to dress up for the occasion. And by this I don’t mean baseball bats and hardhats; more the absolute need to consider how it all looks. Wear paraphernalia that declares as Australian. That ‘Based Stickman’ was dressed up in a way that invoked Captain America transformed the effect of those pictures. I’m not entirely sure what this means should be worn in our context, but how it looks matters, immensely.

  91. Bill Thompson

    Here’s a link to Andrew Bolt’s address at Il Gambero today – with a few seconds at the end omitted for the present. I asked Andrew’s permission & he agreed, however, I’ll seek confirmation re the last 30 seconds later.

    https://youtu.be/v0Y75vlptrQ

  92. A few good smacks there but the irony is that Bolta is now talking to Red Underpants man, who belonged to a Government that would have shut down Bolta if they had half the chance. He’s also talking about political corruption to two of the dodgiest men in politics.

  93. alexnoaholdmate

    I’m hearing that Andrew beat the crap out of one or two of them.

    Wow.

    Just when you think the guy’s become a total pussy, he clobbers a Lefty and then delivers a speech.

    I hope it was a glitter bomb. That would be funny.

    Typical Monster. When masked thugs assault a conservative commentator, it’s “funny.”

    Imagine if someone had tried to do that at a Waleed Aly book launch. Monty would be calling for their heads.

  97. Dan Dare

    I’m finding hard to put into words how happy I am that Bolta has handled this in such a manner.
    A knee in the orchestras is insufficient punishment for these cowardly imbeciles.

  98. Bolt appears to have a pink stain on the left arm of his shirt. Did they throw chalk dust at him or something? Some sort of gay protest? The plot thickens.

  99. Helen

    No, some fat guy poohed his pants running away and it is all on filum.

  102. Boambee John

    m0nty

    Are you proud of your Antifa mates?

  103. Jannie

    Watch how the ABC reacts to it. Bolt will be condemned for violence against brave SJWs. The cops will be urged to charge him with assault, I would not be surprised if he lands up as the aggressor after the propaganda people get at it. I hope he can keep up the fight because they are going to try to destroy him.

  104. I’d like to hear more details, BJ. The video is rather inconclusive. If it was just glitter and paint, as Bolt said, then it seems fairly harmless. Hardly the stuff of Berkeley-style riots.

    I wouldn’t expect you to have a sense of humour about something like that.

    M0nty you are getting somewhat tiresome.
    What would your first reaction be if someone would throw an unknown substance in your face?
    Given the notoriety of Bolt and the left’s reaction to his every uttering, I think he was being restrained in the circumstances.

    I know you’re not that obtuse as to believe that he overreacted in the situation.

  108. From what I saw and from what he said, the two blokes glitter bombed him, one of them ran away, then Bolt got that punch and knee in on the other bloke, who pushed him into the table and also ran away. So the violence mostly came from Bolt. Not that the bomber didn’t deserve it of course, but to claim Bolt is a supine victim is a bit rich since he seemed to have caused more pain than the other side. Of course, that’s just how Bolt told it, there are more sides to that story I’m sure.

  109. Mark, I never said he overreacted. I probably would do the same thing, especially with Bolt’s history. I just don’t think he can play the victim card when he was boasting about his own violence. But hey, he makes money out of victimhood and a man’s got to make a living in this naked city, so who am I to deny his pink armband view of recent history.

    “I wouldn’t expect you to have a sense of humour about something like that.”

    How is Joyce’s sense of humour going? Being displayed in court yet?

  111. struth

    If it was just glitter and paint, as Bolt said, then it seems fairly harmless. Hardly the stuff of Berkeley-style riots.

    It’s all just fun and games when the left do it.
    Really?
    Put yourself in Bolta’s shoes.
    If this happened in Texas, it wouldn’t.
    Why?
    If these two x…nts thought about doing this in Texas, they would realise Bolta would have every right to stick a bullet in their heads as they attacked him.
    Why?
    This is not a joke just because the left do it.
    It was assault.
    Assault they initiated.
    Bolta did not know them.
    This was pure political violence.
    Nazi scum.

    They wore masks, I believe? hard to tell.

    Too scared to stand up for what it is they believe in, but must attack secretly. That’s all you need to know about the type of characters they are. Let’s have their faces and names and what they are protesting about.

    I hope it was a glitter bomb. That would be funny.

    Grub.

    Given the Guy Filming his 2 mates is quite distinguishable

    Have we got her in OZ people with the capability to follow up and find him like this in the US – clinical sleuthing – Should be done by the Victorian Police, but under Daniel Andrews I would not hold out any hope

    Antifa Terrorist Who Beat Trump Supporter in Head WITH BIKE LOCK Identified as Local Professor! (VIDEO)

    The recent incident in Berkeley, colloquially known now as “The Battle of Berkeley”, brought us numerous and new infamous Antifa idiots to laugh at, but one story coming from that event should not as easily be laughed off.

    Diablo Valley College professor Eric Clanton has been unmasked by a group of online free speech advocates. Utilizing the concept of crowdsourcing, /pol/, a message board hosted on 4Chan, was able to figure out who exactly assaulted a pro-1st Amendment demonstrator . . .

  115. If these two x…nts thought about doing this in Texas, they would realise Bolta would have every right to stick a bullet in their heads as they attacked him.

    Lucky we don’t live in Texas then.

    I think the paint or chalk or whatever the powder was was a mistake. Bolt would legitimately be worried that it was anthrax or something similarly toxic, which gives him justification for going the biff in return. If it was just glitter, that stuff is harmless (if very annoying), which is what a prank like that should be.

  116. struth

    The “professor” isn’t old enough to control his tantrums.
    Seems anyone who proves they can’t operate in the outside world, regardless of age, is now known as professor.

    He actually is a professor of lefty bullshit.
    Taxpayer funded.

  117. struth

    Lucky we don’t live in Texas then.

    Lucky (and enabling) for violent thug fascists of the left.

    Not lucky for decent , peaceful people.

  118. This was pure political violence.
    Nazi scum.

    You are a very silly man, struth.

    So Monty, the Pie in the Face of Qantas CEO was also a harmless prank?

    After all a Cream Pie is harmless, so why the Assault Charge>

    Do you seriously regard assaulting someone in the street without warning as a “prank”.

    Stick to the donuts and fantasy football you moral midget.

    Normally I regard your contributions as harmless and occasionally mildly amusing but you are really off the planet tonight.

  121. I’d like to hear more details, BJ. The video is rather inconclusive. If it was just glitter and paint, as Bolt said, then it seems fairly harmless. Hardly the stuff of Berkeley-style riots.

    I wouldn’t expect you to have a sense of humour about something like that.

    Gee monty, how about you be standing somewhere, quietly and legally going about your business, when some doofus in a hoodie, or two doofii in hoodies for that matter, come charging full tilt at you? What are you going to do, eh?

    Shrink and cringe? Poo your Reg Grundies? Shout? Swear a bit? Or are you going to take a swing in pure self defence because all you can see (in Melbourne mind you) are a pair of arseholes coming at you hard and fast, pointing something at you, and some other plonker is standing by filming it? Are you going to wait to see what it is the charging nong is pointing at you? Then laugh if off just because it turns out to be an innocuous substance after all?

    No, dipsh*t, you’re going to react, adrenaline is running high so you’re going to react in your own defence – or maybe not in your case, maybe you’re just going to whimper and crap your daks after all. Put some thought into your posts, and some sense into your empty head. Sheesh.

  122. which is what a prank like that should be.

    For my opinion of what you think of this “prank”, see my post above.

  123. Bolta, learn some Karate. Kick at the knee =they cannot run or even stand with a broken knee joint. That gives time to have a go at the next one and both can be restrained for an arrest.
    Karate is also good excise -Tai Chi is a slow form of Karate and can be carried out elderly persons.

  124. candy

    Monty,
    If it was a prank, they should unmask and say, “it was just a prank, sorry it went wrong”.

    No harm done them. Let’s talk and Bolt would have them on his show.
    Will they unmask and own up to their motives and explain their beliefs and get it out in the open.
    We know A. Bolt would do that. Will the masked chaps appear on his show and talk about their grievances?

    Note: I know MOnty won’t answer. lol.

  125. Notafan

    Watch the video and tell us again about this harmless prank Malmonty

    Far out, a few days ago you called Trump a ‘schoolyard tough’ for writing covfefe on twitter.

    Today a physical assault is giggling gertie worthy.

    I do love your hard hitting journalist style though.

    It’s awesome.

  126. So Monty, the Pie in the Face of Qantas CEO was also a harmless prank?

    After all a Cream Pie is harmless, so why the Assault Charge

    That assault charge is fairly ridiculous. Pressing charges is the wrong thing to do IMO.

  127. Do you seriously regard assaulting someone in the street without warning as a “prank”.

    If it was just glitter, then yes, it’s just a prank. The coloured powdery substance (or whatever it was) was a bit more serious, that was a mistake in the wake of previous anthrax attacks and activists of all sides should learn not to go there.

  128. Monty,
    If it was a prank, they should unmask and say, “it was just a prank, sorry it went wrong”.

    That’s just silly, candy. Not even you could be that naive.

  129. Sinclair Davidson

    Tough one. I have changed my mind on this over the years. He should press changes and they should do jail time if caught.

  130. Sinclair Davidson

    That’s just silly, candy. Not even you could be that naive.

    Have you being paying attention?

    Just ban the xunt Sinc.

    He’s deliberately trolling here, and in all the other threads on this matter..

    Gee monty, how about you be standing somewhere, quietly and legally going about your business, when some doofus in a hoodie, or two doofii in hoodies for that matter, come charging full tilt at you? What are you going to do, eh?

    Be nice to monty. He’s probably never been in any physical danger in his life.

  133. Have you being paying attention?

    She does take it to a new level, doesn’t she. But that was pushing it a bit too far.

  134. Be nice to monty. He’s probably never been in any physical danger in his life.

    Yes, he has. The ISIS radicalised fridge has fallen on him. Unfortunately, it did not complete its mission. It only has done severe brain damage. Since then, Monty is non compos mentis.

  135. I sensed I was in danger when JC hugged me at our last lunch. Thought he was going to go all Father Pell.

    I heard Andrew last night with Steve Price and this morning with Ray Hadley. Not once did he mention the author or title of the book!

  138. Tator

    Left wing maggots were so lucky that Bolt was by himself and not with Cats who are trained in dealing with brain dead zealots in a physical manner like myself or Habib. These morons would have hit the ground so fast they wouldn’t know what had happened. No need to even hit them. Just drop them to the ground and restrain with pain compliance techniques, wave to mama boys. Or even copy the Romanian Baker in London and belt them with a bread crate.
