[34] ... Cardinal George Pell has been falsely convicted of sexually abusing two boys in their early teens. I have three times asked Pascoe to point out the errors, but he has refused. Aborigines dispute his claims and genealogical records suggest his ancestors are all originally English. Deceptive: the anonymous source sounds exactly like an academic who has publicly admitted I am not in fact a racist, and apologised for similar slurs. [33] The applicants claimed the posts breached the Racial Discrimination Act 1975. Which could be summarised as ‘five eights of four fifths of f*** all’ compared to the unlimited welfare gravy train they enjoy now as descendants of widely disparate individual tribes which are classed, from a legal perspective at least, as not having been invaded. Red herring and false assumption: Pascoe’s genealogical records suggest that every one of his ancestors are of English descent. [20] Bolt noted many instances of contemporary Aboriginal children being left "in grave danger that we would not tolerate for children of any other race because we are so terrified of the 'stolen generations' myth. We the Dutch are often thought to be arrogant and, yes, pi-headed. Pascoe publishes a book about his mother, Gloria, who'd died six years earlier and co-wrote it. OR NOT .

I don’t think he would want that to occur though. … I didn’t know I had offended him until a friend sent me a copy of the column in which I was pilloried by Bolt for deciding to be black. That word, by the way – “town” – is not Pascoe’s. Bolt stated that it is a "preposterous and obscene" myth and that there was actually no policy in any state or territory at any time for the systematic removal of "half-caste" Aboriginal children. The truth is hidden in the book but disguised by fictional creativity. He is a scapegoat, not a child abuser." Share this … Deceit: Pascoe last week claimed he had “birth certificates” to prove his Aboriginality. Recently Andrew Bolt and Quadrant attacked Pascoe’s identification as a Bunurong, Tasmanian and Yuin man, wielding family trees like weapons. That’s the point – he grew up as an outsider looking in, True. here. “One reason that Bruce Pascoe seems critic-proof, I think, is that he does say he's Aboriginal”. But we’ve also got that Tasmanian connection, also a South Australian connection as well. Just how foolish is Rick Morton, and the journalists hailing him for his error-riddled defence of an error-raddled Pascoe? People expect me to be outraged but my inclination is to wish I could have a yarn with Bolt over a beer. “Any suggestion that Aborigines are anything other than furtive rock apes has to be destroyed by these people,” the leader says. 1. [45] On 7 April 2020, the High Court of Australia quashed Pell's convictions and determined that verdicts of acquittal be entered in place of all previous verdicts. Misleading, deceptive: This is not evidence of farming, but, at best, keeping “small game alive”, as hunters might. [27], In 2002, magistrate Jelena Popovic was awarded $246,000 damages for defamation after suing Bolt and the publishers of the Herald Sun over a 13 December 2000 column in which he claimed that she had "hugged two drug traffickers she let walk free".

Bolt described the decision as a "terrible day for free speech" in Australia and said it represented "a restriction on the freedom of all Australians to discuss multiculturalism and how people identify themselves. [22] In reply, Manne stated that he supplied a documented list of 250 names. False: Pascoe himself quotes from the journals of explorers who described what was before their eyes. His statement outside the court was harshly criticised by Supreme Court judge Bernard Bongiorno, who later overturned the jury's decision, ruling that Bolt had not acted reasonably because he did not seek a response from Popovic before writing the article and, in evidence given during the trial, showed he did not care whether or not the article was defamatory. Here is a (non-exhaustive) list of the Indigenous charities you should consider supporting if you are hoping to make a difference.

Bolt has twice scoffed at the idea of animal yards being found by these explorers. Robert Manne responded that Bolt did not address the documentary evidence demonstrating the existence of the Stolen Generations and that this is a clear case of historical denialism.

My great-grandfather died two streets from where I lived and I never heard anyone in my family mention his name. I am blindfolded but at dawn the cloth is removed and I am asked to open my eyes for one second, any longer and I will be killed, and then asked to describe that country.
