Norman Lindsay and the ‘Asianisation’ of the German Soldier in Australia during the First World War


Screen Shot 2017-06-09 at 12.30.46 pmDuring the First World War, cartoonists throughout the English-speaking world responded to Allied allegations of German atrocities by depicting the German soldier as a monstrous ogre and labelling him a ‘Hun’ (Gullace, 2010 Gullace, N. F. (2010) Barbaric anti-modernism: representations of the ‘Hun’ in Britain, North America, Australia, and beyond, in P. James (Ed.), Picture This: World War I Posters and Visual Culture. Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press., pp. 61–62). The ‘Hun’ became a prominent symbol of the enemy’s capacity for rapacious violence and was widely depicted in both government and non-government propaganda. While the simian German soldier was unique to the First World War, the racial tropes projected on to him were not. Indeed, he was an amalgam of pre-existing imagery that had been created during the 19th century as British imperialists applied scientific notions of race to colonised people throughout the globe (Robertson, 2010 Robertson, E. (2010) The Hybrid Heroes and Monstrous Hybrids of Norman and Lionel Lindsay: Art, Propaganda and Race in the…

The Truth about The Peaky Blinders

Set in Birmingham UK after WW1, even though somewhat fictional, depicts the lives of ordinary working class people of those times. The story is set in a place called Smallheath where my maternal grandparents lived in the 1920s.  My mother was born there.  Birmingham has been much maligned by academics and others who should know better.  I am proud to say I was born in Birmingham, the City of a thousand teades.  It represents the heart of the working class everywhere. My suspicions are the Ruling Class hate places like Birmingham  because it was a radical Unionised City which fought and won many of the civilised work conditions we enjoy today.

Russia Presents Evidence Against US, UK and Israel As Being the Actual 9/11 Terrorist

9/11: Russia Presents Evidence Against US, UK And Israel Co-Conspirators

Russian 9/11 Data Dump Reveals State Actors

“9/11 was an Anglo-American black operation executed in collusion with Israeli Secret Services and Saudi Arabian financiers.” — 9/11 Investigator

Undoubtedly the 9/11 attacks on New York City and Washington DC are the most misrepresented by officialdom in US history.

Whereas the assassination of John F. Kennedy is now understood to have been a classic CIA Execution Plan, it does not come close to 9/11 in terms of the number and magnitude of outright falsehoods, misleading statements, fake science and fraudulent facts submitted by officials and agents of the US Government.  The ‘official’ 9/11 Commission Report stands as the most fabricated document ever produced by US tax dollars.  Not only did the investigation avoid every serious inquiry about…
