Paranoid conspiracy theory of the week

Sou | 3:44 PM Feel free to comment!
Moderators on HotCopper are a weird mob mostly far to the right of mainstream Australia.  Unsurprisingly their views are largely aligned with the right wing politics and world views of forum management.  At least one moderator is a paranoid conspiracy theorist who often posts links to paranoid conspiracy theories having their roots in anti-semitism, like this one posted by a moderator today:

Even the conservative Andrew Bolt, who is much admired by the target market of HotCopper, shies away from shameful nonsense like that.

If anyone wonders why HotCopper is dominated by minority extreme right wing bigotry, this goes part way to explaining it.

The rot starts at the top.

(Subscribers can view the thread here.  Note that a poster objected to the post and had his or her objection firmly deleted. Free speech, much touted by management and moderators, doesn't apply on HotCopper unless it coincides with the politics of management.)

Instead of commenting as "Anonymous", could you please comment using "Name/URL" and your name, initials or pseudonym or whatever. It requires no registration and is just the same as "Anonymous" but with the advantage that you can use a unique name rather than being lumped in with all the other anonymice. You can leave the "URL" box blank. This isn't mandatory. It's been requested by a regular HotWhopperite to help readers keep track of who says what, (You can of course comment using OpenID or Google or WordPress or whatever, which are forms of authentication.)
