    In Australia the #illridewithyou movement began almost immediately after
    the attack in Sydney. It was alleged to have started (and I quote) “after a
    woman tweeted about seeing another woman removing her hijab on a train –
    presumably out of fear – of backlash against Muslims following the hostage
    crisis. “Put it back on. I’ll walk with you,” she reportedly told the
    woman. Currently 65,000 tweets trending within the last 3 hours on BBC –
    and the movement is spreading. Intelligent and compassionate way to show
    ones humanity (and sanity!) For those who not only see through the
    manipulation of – but also choose to renounce – the media hysteria to react
    and perpetuate further violence against otherwise innocent people, support
    #illridewithyou . Very insightful Trew Russell. Good job.

    Today six people died in a shooting in Pennsylvania America after a U.S
    marine opened fire in three separate incidents across the city the man is
    still at large. The reason I mention this is because American media has
    given this story very little coverage choosing to report on the Australian
    incident and discuss mostly terrorism. Some statistics quoted by an
    American talk show pointed out over the 30 years 3,400 people have died
    across the world as a result of terrorist attacks, in the U.S 900,000 + 6
    have died in the same time period as a result of shootings across the U.S.

    Why do you not take up the cause of rotherham and its islamic sex slave
    market or is that a bridge to far
    this happened here and it is a shock to all australians maybe not to people
    who live through this day after day like israel and the terrorists who wish
    to harm them or london and the killing of a british soldier
    but to us it is shocking we have always been a tolerant country that
    tolerance is growing thin
    as for the report of i will walk with you that was staged crap
    why next they will pull out the islam victim card

    well someone is dressing themselves up to look like Jesus.

    +Russell Brand. Being Australian, I saw a very different news cast over the
    “Seige” period. Even our sunrise morning shows did not fall into the trap
    to call this mental guy a terrorist, they said he was just a crazy
    murderous horrible human being that happened to be pf islamic faith. It
    seems the international media were the ones that blew it up.

    Also why did’t you comment on the #illridewithyou ??

    This is the last time I will watch ANYTHING with Russell Brand in it. I
    cringe at the way he wants to grab a bit of air-time over the media’s
    latest “big” story, and put his megalomaniac views, including having a bit
    of a cheap laugh at the terror of the “brown” hostages as they ran with
    their hands up, which is when I stopped watching this loudmouth. OK we’ve
    all got opinions, and he is entitled to his, that doesn’t make him right,
    or watchable. He might get a few cheap laughs and some publicity, but he’s
    still a huge tosser. He needs to come to a couple of barbies here in Oz and
    try it on, he’d get those big horse teeth knocked out in no time. Stick to
    being a hyperactive bigmouth in funny movies Rusty, leave real life to real

    The media did help promote the slogan “I will ride with you” Get off the
    bongs champ!

  8. John Hardy didn't vote for Abbott
  9. Alana Laverty

    It’s really simple if some of you didn’t grasp it when Russel said it, but
    perhaps I will explain in different way.
    Liberal gov never does anything out of the kindness of their hearts.
    The factors leading up to this event, the LNP

    Made it an offense to protest in victoria
    Tried to change the discrimination laws to give people the “right” to be a
    Made it an offense for journalists to report on such matters
    Made laws so they can invade your internet privacy/retain your data for two

    It’s not for your protection.
    It’s to promote hatred and fear. Notice how whenever Liberals are in power,
    muslims become the focus of a smear campaign??
    And how eager they are to jump in with the U.S with involving themselves in
    that whole part of the world (two biggest commodities is opium and crude
    Don’t clueless idiots believing everything you see on the news.
    They want you to be scared, hateful and ignorant !!
    They even tried to cut funding to schools, if that doesn’t seem obvious
    enough :/

    Good on you Russell! The anti-semitic racism displayed by the media was
    astounding. Just because this man was a Muslim, the media referred to it
    as a terrorist attack yet if anyone else did this it would have simply been
    called a siege!
    He was obviously a protected government asset (patsy).

    It is obvious that this whole event was completely orchestrated by the
    Australian secret services in order to force the Australian people to
    support the phony ‘War on Terror’ against ISIS and to justify the
    ridiculously huge budgets of ASIO and the Aussie military. When will the
    Australian people learn?

  11. Grand Negus

    Question: How was this guy even allowed to walk around in public with such
    a string of offences?

    Answer: He was a state sponsored terror asset. Obviously.

  12. Omnipotent Truth

    it amuses me that this incident gets continuous coverage on the news for
    days and a family of 8 get stabbed to death in Cairns and barely gets a
    Are we being baited up for some anti terror laws?
    It certainly was very timely for taking the spotlight off Abbotts lousy
    approval rating.
    This incident has been sensationalized by the media and has been used in a
    divisive way to pacify us to accept Abbott anti terror laws.

  13. Shortstack

    I’m Australian and I hate tony abbot :/ I hate our entire government 

  14. Romina Rehi

    There is speculation that #illridewithyou was a pr stunt please can more
    investigation be done into this

  15. umneo

    I agree with you about most things Russell, but I think you need to do more
    research into religious scriptures. Religion is not a force for good, it’s
    brainwashing rubbish. Look up Christopher Hitchens, he explains it well

  16. fatty6x6

    Check out this video on YouTube:Seems Australia is going to have the same
    police militarization as america soon with the loss of rights and privacy
    in the name of safety. 

  17. Trollster Comeback

    Shove this up your over-stretched arsehole – RUSTY BRAND

    Bernard Gaynor has a background in military intelligence, Arabic
    language and culture and has returned from three Iraq deployments.

    written by Bernard Gaynor.

    Australia has woken to the devastating news that two hostages died in
    the Lindt Cafe this week. Like all Australians, my thoughts and prayers
    are with the families of those now grieving.

    But I am not going to join in with the mob in perpetuating the myths
    that are already being circulated as a result of this completely preventable

    And it was completely preventable. It was the entirely predictable
    outcome of the decision to allow a violent culture with a superiority
    complex and an itchy trigger finger to take root in Australia.

    So expect to see more Islamic flags and more grieving families.
    This war has only just started and it’s not going well.

    And here are five things the mainstream media is spinning wrong about
    the Islamic addition to Christmas festivities in Australia over the last 24

    1. We couldn’t see this coming

    Apparently, we could never see this coming.
    This was an attack we thought we could never see in Sydney.
    That’s what the Premier of New South Wales, Mike Baird, said this morning.
    Hello! Mike! Is there anyone home? Australians aren’t goldfish.

    We can remember things for more than three seconds.
    Like, for instance, the fact that 800 police descended upon Sydney
    just a few weeks ago to prevent some peaceful follower of the
    religion of peace from peacefully severing some random Aussie’s head.
    In Martin Place. Right where the Lindt Cafe stands.

    Anyone who couldn’t see this coming has had their head in the sand and
    their backside pointed skywards, almost as if they have already embraced
    I’m guessing, however, that most people would not have expected the news
    that the deranged gunman was actually on bail, for a multitude of sexual
    and in relation to his wife’s murder (she was peacefully set on fire).

    Or that this bloke had a habit of sending abusive letters to the families
    Australian soldiers who died in Afghanistan.

    Who needs to worry about the Islamic threat when our own legal system holds
    the safety of Australians in such contempt that it would let this guy run

    But I can think of no better advertisement for the actual truth of Islam
    than the
    fact that a murderous sexual deviant would stroll into the heart of Sydney
    his last stand under the most famous words of Mohammed.

    2. Don’t worry ! it’s just a lone wolf Dont worry Australia.

    Mr “Allahu Akbar” is a ‘lone wolf’. This is a ‘one off’. Just like the
    lone wolf who stabbed two police officers in Victoria in the name of Allah
    earlier this year.

    Just like the one-off lone wolf who shot a Canadian soldier and then stormed
    that nation’s parliament in the name of Allah a few weeks ago.

    Just like the one-off lone wolf who went on a rampage at Ford Hood in the
    United States killing 13 soldiers in the name of Allah a while back.

    Just like the …. , by now you should be getting the picture. I could go
    on all
    day talking about the ‘lone wolves’ out there who all seem to operate in
    disciplined unison.

    There is an army of ‘lone wolves’. That makes the ‘lone’ part redundant.
    And the guy responsible for the death of two Australians in Sydney
    wasn’t all that alone anyway. He had over 14,000 followers on Facebook.

    So expect this to happen all over again. Because the one thing that these
    people all have in common is an ability to read the Koran, and a commitment
    to following its bloody message.

    3. Don’t worry, it’s not the Islamic State

    Keysar Trad was on Sunrise this morning waxing lyrical about how this was
    not the work of the Islamic State. And Kochie was nodding along with him.

    I didn’t know these two men were spokesmen for the nation that is NOT
    a nation and that we are at war with.

    But anyway, apparently this means we can all breathe a sigh of relief. I
    really know why I should have to point this out, but if the Lindt Cafe
    had nothing to do with the Islamic State then it only proves that it is not
    just the Islamic State that we should be worried about.

    It is proof that it’s not the design of the flag that’s the problem, but
    the words
    that are on them. And those flags all carry the same Islamic words and have
    the same Islamic meaning: Total global domination.

    The simple fact is that the Sunni-Shia Islamic split is nothing more than
    argument over who gets Mohammad’s loot.
    They still haven’t worked it out 1,400 years later, but they pretty much
    on everything else of importance, i.e.:
    The non-Islamic world are a bunch of heathen scum who should be
    subjugated, raped and pillaged.

    The flag in the Lindt Cafe overshadowed the ‘Merry Christmas’ for a reason,
    It was an arrogant message of contempt and it signified a murderous intent
    to enslave us all.

    4. Islamic leaders have condemned this violence.

    Apparently Australia’s Grand Mufti has condemned the Lindt Cafe siege.
    and with that, the media went running on their way to talk about how
    fear for their lives, living in such a racist country like Australia.

    But the truth is that Grand Mufti Ibrahim Abu Mohamed has a ‘lot of Hide’
    issue such a statement.
    This is the same man that sent a statement to the Federal Senate in
    October claiming that new anti-terror laws inhibited his religious freedom.

    You read that right. Nothing further needs to be said.
    The Grand Mufti’s statement says it all; it is an open admission that Islam
    promotes terrorism.

    The real question is this: Why has the media barely reported this at all?

    5. The Islamic Community suffers from this

    The last 24 hours are wreaking a terrible toll on the Islamic community,
    if you believe the media.

    Give me a break. this is the ultimate ‘good cop/bad cop’ routine.
    Some dude walks into a cafe and kills two people. In return the Islamic
    apologists are given huge air time.

    The Premier of New South Wales convenes video conferences with the
    bloke who claims new anti-terror laws impinge religious freedom and inter-
    faith prayer services are held at mosques around the nation.

    Politicians are jumping over themselves to promote Islam.
    And it’s all because, under the Islamic flag, two Australians were gunned
    Like I said, give me a break.

    And, of course, the social media numpties have gone nuts. #illridewithyou
    has taken off. It is, of course, a completely empty gesture designed only
    reinforce the arrogant feelings of moral superiority held by those who
    promote tolerance at the expense of our nation’s safety.

    And nothing shows the vacuous nature of the moral do-gooders than the
    fact that they don?t do any good at all. They just ‘Twitter’ good, like
    from on high. Apparently, that is even better than actually doing anything
    at all.

    If you support the idea of Islamic rule and Sharia law, the last week has
    shown that murdering two Australians is pretty much all it takes to get
    everyone who is anyone to show deference and submission.
    It’s not exactly a great deterrent. So expect more violence to come!

  24. Ben Morris

    Hi Guys,
    i Know this may sound ignorant and stupid but i was just wondering why it
    is that people like rupert murdoch and other mass media producers are
    trying to create a common enemy of the terrorists and are trying to
    scare/manipulate the public with this kind of reporting? what is their
    ultimate goal/ what are they trying t achieve, i understand with
    politicians it is to pass new laws and to try and initiate overseas actions
    for economic purposes. just looking for some genuine responses…
