The TBC are a far right street protest group. Based in Victoria, members of the TBC have been a constant throughout the Reclaim Australia rallies, which brought many of these youngsters into the far right political fold. They have since emerged as the unofficial youth squad of the United Patriots Front, attending their rallies and being the main instigator of violence. They can be spotted in white t-shirts, Aussie face masks and making erratic hand gestures.

The TBC played a major role in organising the Reclaim Australia rally in Melton (where most of their members are based) which saw them attacking anti racist activists. They were also in attendance at the last UPF rally in Bendigo where they pretended to attempt an attack on anti fascists at the train station in full view of police. They are behind the organising of the counter demonstration against the closure of Nauru and Manus Island on the 28th of May in Melbourne.

As predicted, the counter protest organised by the so called TBC turned out to be a flop. A handful of fascists not numbering over 70 turned up and lingered in a park away from the anti racist protest. The TBC turned up alongside the UPF and armed with metal poles, jumped a barrier to initiate a couple of scuffles with Coburg locals and anti racists. The rally ended with a few of the flogs in hospital. The ones who didn’t run and the ones that drove away, lol.

As it turns out, the TBC and UPF aren’t as close as they would like you to believe. In an effort to get a leg up on their future rivals, TBC took the opportunity to piss on them online. Smart move guys.

TBC have announced their intention to rally on the 26th of June in Melbourne’s CBD in opposition to so called anti-Australian racism. The TBC poo-bars think that the precious Aussie/ English shitrag is coming under fire from progressives and will soon be under threat of being banned. If only the southern cross tattooed pie munchers were right. They made a video with the aesthetic skills of a three year old calling for Aussies of all stripes to rally with them in Melbourne on the 26th of June. Lets see how this pans out.

On account of TBC fuhrer and nervous nelly Kane Miller, the TBC bussed in support from Melton and Bendigo with only a handful of Melbourne locals in attendance. The pinheads requested a police escort alongside praise to the Victorian Police for  keeping them safe. They are such a gallant bunch. The TBC rally was poorly attended despite their numbers being bulked up by members of both UPF and Rise Up. So basically, since the formation of both Reclaim Australia and the UPF in 2015, this is all the far right can muster in Melbourne, pathetic. Oh and burning flags you bought is LITERALLY burning your own money. Nice work dickheads.

The TBC organised a rally against the so-called rise of Islam in their hometown, Melton. Prominent attendees included Kim Vuga of the non existent Love it or Leave Party, Blair and Sewell of the UPF, Ralph Cerminara (who appears to have jumped ships again and patched in with TBC) and a handful of members from the PDLA and Party for Freedom. The group marched towards the local Town Hall, which of course was empty given it was a Sunday, and started hurling racist abuse at an empty building.

In typical TBC style, the so-called rally quickly deteriorated into a violent confrontational affair fuelled by alcohol and drugs. On account that “their weren’t any lefties around to pretend to fight” they turned on the Soldiers of Odin who were obviously perceived as a rival/ threat.  Instead of greeting each other with outstretched roman salutes, both groups, exchanged incoherent insults and empty threats at each other in a car park, with no shortage of macho posturing. With both groups clad in overpriced and poorly designed merchandise, it was hoodies vs bomber jackets, as a group of iced up street hoods faced off with wannabe bikies. Classic.

Although the threats of violence and tough talking was just for show (an entertaining one at that) there are some very revealing scenes in the above video. One of the TBC meth-heads assaulted an SOO member in full sight of police. The same meth-head also threatened to “drop” a cop who had touched him and then proceeded to assault another cop. Very interesting to see the preferential treatment given from Victoria’s finest. Uphold the Right!

Members of the TBC organised a rally against the settling of refugees in Melbourne’s Eltham Retirement Village. A handful of UPF, SOO & TBC tweekers turned up to rant and rave behind police lines before quickly dispersing. Their rally failed to attract more than 50 people. That was quick.

AFAS observations point towards a massive drop in activity from the once big gang in town. It seems that a gang of meth head woman bashers couldn’t keep their little crew together for even a year as some of their high profile former members exposed them as a merchandising scam, swindling thousands off their members. There must be a lot of happy meth dealers in Melton.

Those overpriced TBC merch hoodies are appearing less and less on the streets of Melbourne, signifying a easily predicted decline in membership and momentum. TBC did commit to their national pride/ Aussie flag march thing on June 25 which they seem to want to make an annual affair. In the company of the two UPF members, United Australia Front, Soldiers of Odin and a bunch of blow ins from Newcastle, including members of the Infidel Brotherhood and neo Nazi boneheads Sammy Goodwin & James Lawrence. The group of 100 or so roamed around the streets to belch and groan to the tune of Blair Cottrell’s speech and follow him around town for an hour or so.
