The Libs had UAP them second on their 'How to Vote cards' in Victoria in his electorate

Soon after election night, Babet deleted his UAP campaign Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter account. However, archived posts from these accounts and other online content reveals that his views are well and truly in line with those of his right-wing populist and conspiracy promoting party leader Palmer.

Beyond arguing that the election was going to be fraudulent, Babet promoted the same conspiracy theory that the World Economic Forum is carrying out a globalist takeover of the country’s sovereignty. Soon after the election was called for Labor, he posted on his account: “I would like to congratulate the prime minister of Australia on an excellent campaign. Well done Klaus Schwab.”

Despite his dislike for the man responsible for creating the “billionaire circus” at Davos, Babet is a fanboy of other billionaires. At a rally earlier this month he boasted about meeting Palmer a handful of times and defended him online against reports he hadn’t paid his staff. Babet also tweeted glowingly about Elon Musk and was stoked about his proposed takeover of Twitter.

Meet Ralph Babet: conspiracy theorist, anti-lockdown advocate and Victoria's UAP senator

Also promotes Donald Trump and joins Clive Palmers United Party. Two Billionaires trying to end Democracy.

The stupidity of people who claim to hate billionaires and global elites, who then rabidly support global elite billionaires like Palmer, Murdoch, Trump and Elon musk of all people, is truly astounding.

Those listed aren't part of the "woke" or "elites" though so it's fine to be supporting them.

By 'elites', you mean 'Freemasons and Jews'.

That seems to be the line of demarcation of 'Good elites vs Bad elites' for most on the Far right.

Unless you're one of the ones who spruik the message they want to hear. Then you're one of the good ones.

Well the whole Murdoch media talks about media elites like they are the little guy being picked on, their followers lap it up.

Embarrassed to be Victorian

When I was young I had the starry eyed dreams of representing my state and country in the sports I played. If I were representing Vic or Aus now I would feel a bit dirty on the inside knowing I'd be representing 40% of theses degenerates (I don't even feel pride singing the national anthem anymore) so I wouldn't use representing your state/country as motivation and would just focus on 'me' lol.

What Jewish billionaire/ banking cabal/ Hollywood elite etc do the far Right like?

I seriously cant think of one.

Oddly enough all of the 'banking cabals, financiers and Hollywood and Media elites' on their s**t list all have Jewish names (Soros, Rothschilds, Zuckerberg, Goldman Sachs, Warbergs etc etc)

I suppose Hollywood elite is a stretch for some of them like Sorbo, Woods, Rousey, Barr, Nugent but correct there's no Jewish billionaires or banking cabals they like as far as I'm aware.

But there are people like Yemini, Shapiro, Yiannopolous who they've loved at one point or another.

I don't really think it's all that odd when talking about the far right and not liking Jewish people.

That's my misunderstanding, I thought it was Hollywood elite in general.

No, 'Hollywood elites' is codeword for Jews.

Same thing as 'Banking cabals/ financiers' is.

When the Far right wing say that: 'the Bankers, financiers, billionaires and Hollywood/ Media elites' are trying to control the world and impose 'cultural Marxism and global socialism on us' and using various plots like 'mass immigration and white replacement' or 'PC programming' or 'COVID and vaccines' or Global warming' or 'LGBTI agenda' or whatever,

What they're really saying (knowingly or unknowingly) is:

'There is a Jewish plot to take over the world, using both Capitalist financiers (the Jews control the finance sector) and Socialism (Marx and Lenin were Jews) and aided and abetted by Social Media Jews (Zuckerberg etc) and Hollywood 'Zionists' to 'Culturally Bolshevize' the West and the replace the White race with non whites, and seize control of the world, in a clash of the cultures between the races'.

You know, what Hitler and the Nazis thought was happening, and why they hated the Jews so much.

Nowadays you get two kinds of RWNJ/ Conspiracy theorist:

There are those that regurgitate the above 'Banking cabal/ Hollywood and Media elites' conspiracy, without knowing (or realizing) that they're just parroting an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory, and the core belief of the Nazis. These guys are just genuinely stupid or naive. Most Clive Palmer followers are in this category.

And then there are the actual Nazis, who know exactly who these 'globalists and Hollywood elite billionaire/ socialists' are when they say the same theory.

None of them are Jewish.
If the Barr being referred to, was Roseanne Barr, she is in fact Jewish.

Going sort of off topic but a lot of our Aussie elite billionaires that the knuckle draggers seem to love are actually Jewish. The Pratts, Triguboff, Lowy, etc

If they don't actually like them, they sure seem to love voting for the politicians that are looking out for said elite Aussie billionaire's interests. :drunk:

I thought the interpretation of good elites (in the view of cookers like this UAP senator) is more libertarian vs non libertarian
