"WHATEVER IT TAKES" - THE THREE WORD MANTRA THAT WILL BE USED TO PUSH INDIGENOUS AND HOMELESS OUT OF CAIRNS

CUEBALL MACKENZIE SHRIEKING
HYSTERICALLY IN EFFORT TO HAVE
ABORIGINALS REMOVED FROM CAIRNS
The shrieking of Cueball MacKenzie was deafening this morning.  Fed by a hysterical, fact-less story in today's Cairns Post (written by Damon Guppy, campaign manager for Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King and still obviously taking orders from the LNP), Cueball used the words "battle, "critical emergency", "mayhem", and other inflammatory statements in a clear attempt to get vigilante actions underway in the community.


And as usual, MacKenzie filled the airwaves with absolute lies in order to advance his argument.


He claims assaults in Cairns are "front page stories" in Asian capitals. We've looked, we've had Chinese, Japanese, and Indonesian readers look, and can't find any.  Not even on page 65.  None.


He claims "even the BBC has highlighted the crime in Cairns".  A search of the extensive BBC website shows not one word, good or bad, about Cairns, Australia.  Lots about ex-cricketer Chris Cairns, however.


And twisting a report on homelessness recently released, he now claims there are 1,300 homeless indigenous drunks in Cairns.  However the real report has the vast majority of the 1,300 white families and children, with only 8% statewide reported to be aboriginals.  This correlates with police reports that less than 100 indigenous cape residents are on the streets in Cairns.  



And the hysteria was further amplified by Warren "Fat Fucker" Entsch, who criticised the closure of facilities like Lyons House, while ignoring the fact the he and Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King personally organised a slanderous assault on Diane Forsyth and Lyons House, an assault rejected in record time by the CMC.  Entsch then complained about all the indigenous drinking during the daytime in the CBD, which brought a pointed response by the police - why didn't Warren Entsch call the cops if he saw all this illegal behaviour?  Entsch is part of the problem, not the solution.  Let's hope a competent candidate is going to run against this closeted dud when the election is called.

And then we have the comments by newly elected Cairns Mayor Bob "Screwdriver" Manning - who courageously said "the biggest role for council in this is one of advocacy on behalf of the businesses".  More claptrap from ol' Screwdriver.  Maybe he'd like to explain "on behalf of businesses" why his council is closing the lagoon for four weeks at the start of the high season????


Clearly a problem, hardly an "emergency".  A much bigger problem is the continual turnover of police personnel, leaving large numbers of street cops ill-trained and obviously unable to implement any basic crime fighting strategies.  Why are police assaults up?  Because of these large numbers of poor-quality police recruits unable to assert and defend themselves.  


Patience is growing thin even with the newly elected LNP members in Cairns, thanks to the MacKenzie-fabricated hysteria.

Feedback I have had from tourists are 80% anti Anglo racists and maybe 20% anti Aboriginal. The anti Aboriginal are normally redneck travellers from down south. If they are so worried about "image" overseas then racism needs urgent action. Feeding it will only make it worse. I have had so many comments from travellers who have been hijacked in pubs by rednecks ranting and raving about the "Abo" problem when the visitor has only had positive experience with Indigenous tourism. They go away with entrenched views we are the reason Aborignal people suffer and maybe they are right. We need to also realise we are drunks in the eyes of some cultures. Though many whites are colour blind and only see Aboriginal drunks they see all of us staggering down the sreet being noisy and uncouth. So more a a local issue than a tourism one.

Yes, we are all well aware there is a huge drinking problem in Cairns and environs ... a walk around the CBD any night of the week and especially at weekends will reveal rowdy, boorish and threatening behaviour, but the vast majority of it emanates from drunken backpackers and young ragers and not just from a hundred or so dispossessed indigenous people! Where did Cueball pluck the figure of 1300 from????? As HW has pointed out yet again, the toxic broadcaster never lets the facts stand in the way of a story. Methinks another report to the ABA is overdue.

Back in 1989 to 1993, I was working right within the CBD, close to the old City Place, and Mackenzie was going apeshit then about the "vagrants" and "homeless". He has been ranting about it for over 20 bloody years, almost non-stop! During that time we have seen Diverionary Centres established, foot police, bicycle police, ATSI police liasion officers, and regular increases in police numbers as well as security cameras. There isn't any easy solution to this one, something the fool hasn't worked out after more than two decades.

Mackenzie needs to go. Plain and simple. The outright lies that "man" spills all over the airwaves 5 days a week are increasing by the day. How he gets away with his trash is beyond me. He's gone into full on Federal Election Campaigning now. Regardless of anyones political leanings, surely listeners to a radio station deserve to hear fair argument from both sides of the story..facts...and i mean REAL facts, not the crap he pulls from his ass..so they can make up their own mind. It's frightening to think there are people out there who do actually hang on every word this cretin utters. It's time to go John Mackenzie. You speak of the filth and vermin in this city daily...YOU ARE the filth and vermin! Get out of our city before you completely destroy it with your fear campaigns and bullshit!! We deserve better than this garbage and it's time we stood up, made a plan, and got rid of him.

I suggest a petition to the station manager and ABA as a first step.

He's loathsome, but please don't overstate this man's influence. Firstly, his audience is small, and many of those who do tune in are like me; listening with incredulity that such unsubstantiated bile can spew forth day in day out. Mackenzie is suffering from relevance deprivation syndrome (he didn't even get a cyclone this year, and his forte is sitting in the 4CA bunker taking calls from 'Bluey at Second beach' stating the bleeding obvious; it's windy out here!). And although his invective is disgusting, he is just a convenient mouthpiece for those who pull his strings. Think; Mackenzie sitting like a lap dog at Villa Romano, gorging on free lunches whilst hanging on Byrne's every word.

People choose their media outlets based on their pre-existing beliefs and choose their media personalities to suit them.

It's easy to pick on Mackenzie, because he's a steaming heap of moron, but the reality is that his listenership largely agree with him.

The uneasy truth is that, living in Cairns, we live side-by-side with some of the most ingorant, moronic rednecks Australia has to offer. Get Mackenzie off the air and he'll only be replaced by somebody with similar views. Most educated people are either working in the mornings or have better things to do than listen to Mackenzie.

By all means, continue to expose the lies and misinformation, but the real battle is in the younger generation, yet to be influenced. Mackenzie's geriatric, retired listeners are a lost cause.

Start by complaining to his station management and ABA about the lies and his refusal to let anyone on his "talk back show" that does not sprout his garbage. Get on his show by telling his moderator you want to discuss a subject supporting his view and then on air challenge his crap and lies. If enough people do this it will have an effect. Will it get rid of him? Who knows , but it will certainly piss him off. If there are enough people out there who have had it with his continual dribble who get off their backsides and complain i think it will have a major impact. Any other thoughts. To the blogger who has displayed a very good knowledge of the history of 4ca perhaps they could enlighten us on the present managements attitude to him and who to lobby for best effect.

Of course Mackenzie has influence. One of the worst things he has done in modern times was to twist around the statement by Anna Bligh concerning the sale of the Cairns Airport. Bligh's original press release, and Desley Boyle's subsequent one, both state the funds from the sale of the airport were to go towards upgrading the existing Base Hospital, which would include a new building, plus buying land for the new hospital. Mackenzie simply turned this into, "the sale of the Cairns airport is to build a new hospital." This was then taken up by King in his columns and the rest is history. There were those of us who tried to correct the outrageus lies, but our comments were never published. Bligh and Boyle didn't lie. The hospital is being upgraded and land has been purchased for the new hospital. Bear in mind, that Mackenzie was the one who led the war against Keith de Lacey's offer of a brand nedw hospital back in 1995. Mackenzie's actions have been reprehensible and have been at the direct cost of the lives and well being of the citizens of Cairns.

Dean, your last paragraph truly hits the bull's eye.

The only thing his station will listen to is his advertisers. Petition his advertisers. Talk to them. boycott them if you must. The ABA is a waste of time and it always has been.

"ignorant, moronic rednecks Australia has to offer". I couldn't agree more. Never have I felt more ashamed to be living in this city as when Mackenzie stroked up the rednecks into abuse and hatred when some local musos came up with the idea of a Ukulele Festival for Cairns. Mackenzie ranted and raved, King took up the ugly chants, and all the rednecks around town spewed forth their vitriole. Ugly, narrow minded rednecks! Yes, ruby red dress, you have given another example of Mackenzie's lies and manipulations. It is ironic to look at the Base Hospital as an issue in retrospect. De Lacy backed away from building a brand new hospital because of the hate Mackenzie had stroked up. Had De Lacey pressed on, he would have lost his seat in Parliament over the issue. Yet within a short period of time Mackenzie was roaring away about ramped up ambulances, waiting lists and so on at the ageing and inadequate hospital. By that time the State Government didnt have a billion dollars to build a new one so the Cairns airport was sold to upgrade the existing hospital. Mackenzie distorted Bligh's press release into a gigantic lie, then in turn blamed Bligh and Boyle for lying. King delightedly took it up and no-one could doubt the fact that this was one issue King used to get elected.

To all 10 or 20 of you losers that write on here, you mob are the minority, thats why your crappy old grey mayor got booted out. Your veiws are not welcome so why don't you all fuck off and leave our city to us red necks ok. hahhha

Dean said...

Dear Anonymous,

Thanks for voting in the older mayor with no hair.

I feel sorry for you that you feel such hatred and anger and perhaps desperation. You dislike your life so much that you blame your problems on the world and the government? Hoping that they'll solve all your problems or that they're the cause of your problems?

I'm very happy with my life, I think most politicians do a good job. Even Bob will be ok and have zero to 0.1% bearing on my life. I'd just like to help people like you who hate yourselves and society lead better and happier lives. All that's really required is a bit of education.

I don't hate rednecks like you, as you hate 'crappy old grey' people. I'd never ask you to 'fuck off'. I'd like to help you overcome your prejudices and hatred which lead you to say such things. Then you might be happier.

Thanks for contributing.

Colin the phocine dyslexic dugong (who is still waiting for his idol to save the dugongs and turtles) strikes again! Where's your love for the dugongs these days Colin? Thanks to Gavin King, and Warren Entsch, you had your three minutes of fame, being used as the tool you are, in getting Entsch elected. Pity about the dugongs. Their champion was a fat, stupid moron who couldn't see how he was being used.

Mandy said...

See where The Cairns Post is trumpeting today about how 30 homeless people have been sent back to the communities. Now, according to Mackenzie, we have 1,270 still to go.

Incredible... Absolutely incredible... Some of the free booting, moronic ratbag remarks above - others are neat, as they usually are). I'm lost for words. I will try to enlighten you a little more on 846 4CA - remember ‘’sHits and Memories” 4CA? Do you remember the jingle from 1976? "I'm going to check out the women and maybe so some swimmin'.... da da da da..... four seeeee ayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy’’. This is when 1010 (correctly 1008*) 4CA moves from 5.00am to 10.00pm to 846 4CA and full on twenty four hour broadcasting. New Year’s Eve if I remember correctly. Who PRESIDED over this, rightly so, milestone?
I am trying, thank you ruby and others, to shed light on a serious matter in this forum that will lead to MacKenzie's resignation or removal, without too much pain, neither to he, nor to a few polished knobs or drop kicks in Cairns. I shall try and nudge you in the right direction. There is a CONNECTION between a building, a former …….., a newspaper, and a few generous people that allow this to continue to happen. Another clue is that Blue Balls, or Cue Ball or whatever you want to call him, gets his agenda and cue, from the newspaper that is in front of him, on his mixing console each morning. Think about it. Who sets the agenda? Again, WHO sets the agenda? I can tell you this much, it is NOT management of 4CA. Once the curtain draws, or more correctly, the microphone opens, MacKenzie is the lout who whips up the cream of the ratbag element, then goes on the vinegar stroke. Sometimes, you would swear MacKenzie was going to ejaculate! I learnt long ago, that to do a roast; you want a nice tender one. So you have to do it slowly. :)


(*) All a.m. radio stations in Australia broadcast on a band width, where the frequency always adds up to the number nine. Try it, you will understand. In the United States, it is different.

Well Anonymous, I can vaguely recall the jingle. Ditto the one about, "and guess what, we got our own beer!" I just cannot connect the dots you left us..."a building, a former....., a newspaper and a few generous people..."

A former mayor could walk straight across Abbott Street from the Council Chambers to his office in Virginia House back in the eighties.

Destiny Prophet - 15/5/12 21:47.

You are falling into the groove. Now, re-read what I wrote. I might at this point add, that I will not comment on stupid statements made by half-wits here (I consider their comments, however give them the contempt they deserve) who just abuse any of us who are trying to resolve this generally accepted and absurd breach of ethics by not only a so called ‘broadcaster’, but even more importantly, other people who are, or WERE in privileged positions.

If you read again what I wrote yesterday, there is a CONNECTION. However, well before Cueball, you must start from the start, which to my memory commenced in 1975. If you follow the line of DEDUCTIVE REASONING, you will be able to piece together where I am pointing you. I know the answer. It is for the people, and the people alone to see this brought to light, not I as an individual. The concrete has set hard, and those involved are now MacKenzie's reinsmen. Again, WHO sets the agenda for his diatribe of hate and hysteria? I can categorically inform you from a most reliable source, is it NOT management of 4CA. Let me merely suggest to you, if you were in a position of self-interest, and obviously some money behind you, you too would want MacKenzie to keep stoking the already flogged issues that he does. I will give you another nudge... think investment, and I mean PRIME investment. Link it with my historical outline of this once good radio station, and then go from there. You will work it out, and may be surprised. The rot set in long ago, and some involved have already left this Earth. The noose will start to appear, and then you will see some people with testicles starting to rise up into their throats….

I think you're reading far too much into it. Sure the owners of 4CA have their own agenda, but how's that different from any other media? Post in particular. It's no big secret that the media has its own agenda. The owners of 4CA want to attract advertisers, sure, but they also might be pushing other agendas and any thinking person knows that. 4CA have every right to start completely false stories to promote their own agenda as long as they don't drift into fraud territory. It's not 4CA that's the problem, it's the system. If it wasn't 4CA and their owners it would just be somebody else with their own agenda.

It's just like NBC pushing wars in the US, because they happen to be owned by General Electric, who happen to make missiles which are used in wars. There's no secret about it.
