Damien Ferri

Screen Shot 2017-09-18 at 10.27.37 pm.png

A far right politician from Wollongong. Ferri identifies as a conservative, being a devout fan boy of Cory Bernardi. Ferri stood as an independent in 2011 for Ward 2 Wollongong council. He also claims to have worked for several right wing political parties including Family First and Katter’s Australia Party.

Ferri is a leading figure within the small United Conservatives Party, a small ultra conservative group that emphasises family values, forceful cultural assimilation and tax cuts for the rich. Ferri is the National Vice President of the party’s youth wing, the Young Conservatives.

Since the election of Donald Trump, right wing activists have felt emboldened to come out from behind their computer screens and into the public fold. Ferri is one of these. In late 2016 he launched an alt right blog The Unshackled, which has models itself on smaller channels such as the Canadian Rebel Media.

Despite labeling himself as a “conservative” Ferri keeps some pretty nefarious company. His channel TU has given its invisible platform to Australia’s anti Islam and anti immigration “patriot” movement. Ferri is close friends with Canberra Reclaim Australia activist Dan Evans, interviewing him on his video blog.

Damien Ferri is an oddball  at best. Since the foundation of The Unshackled, Ferri has worked to develop a close working relationship with white nationalist group Party for Freedom. He attended the pro Trump inauguration rally in Sydney on the 21st of January to cover the non-event. After their little assembly he wandered further down Martin Place and into the Anti Trump Women’s March where he proceeded to film two topless protestors. The shocked expression on the boys face was priceless, seemingly as it must have been the first time he has seen a pair other than his mothers.

Ferri has continued to haunt Party for Freedom events in Sydney. A week following the pro Trump rally in January 2017, he showed up to the Reclaim Australia rally. Months later he would show up once again for the PfF protest outside Malcolm Turnbull’s house in Sydney’s ritzy Eastern Suburbs, where he was so “shocked” to see a rainbow flag it was all he could talk about on the train back to Wollongong. Just come out already mate.

Sukith Fernando

Screen Shot 2017-09-18 at 10.15.20 pm.png

A right wing amateur e journalist. Fernando is a prominent contributor to the alt right blog The Unshackled, writing articles, podcasts and videos for their website. His content is usually targeted at feminists, LGBTQI advocates and anti racist activists, which he identifies as part of “the regressive left”. In one bizarre  video, Fernando claims gender-neutral toys are “an attack on the natural order and a cultural Marxist plot”. He is also a contributor to the crypto-fascist publication The Spectator.

Fernando, who also turns out to be a Liberal Party supporter/ member, attended the Reclaim Australia rally that took place in Martin Place, Sydney on the 29th of January 2017. Fernando was with fellow contributor to the aspiring alt right website The Unshackled Damien Ferri, playing a founding role in the website and serving as its co editor in chief.

Has attended several far right anti immigration rallies, notably the Reclaim Australia rally in Sydney, a pro Trump rally, and the Party for Freedom rally in Penrith. Fernando and his mates, like many in the alt right, are using libertarian politics as a smoke screen to promote neo fascist politics. Fernando took part in the University of Sydney’s student elections under the SRC ticket Vanguard, a small faction of alt righters and fashy young Liberals, contesting the election which is to take place in late September.

Whilst on campus campaigning, Fernando was confronted by a group of queer and Jewish students for his comments related to denying the Holocaust. Through his association with fellow fascist’s online, Fernando goes further to say “Hitler did nothing wrong”. A nervous and triggered Fernando appeared to crack under pressure once confronted. Lacking the courage of his convictions, he immediately back peddled once he realised that his edgy online posturing can be confronted in the real world outside his 4chan safe space.

Tim Wilms

Wilms has reinvented himself as an aspiring alt right video personality, capitalizing upon Trump’s election as a means of gaining relevance. He writes articles on behalf Liberty Works, a small online libertarian satellite group for the LDP. He also is a prominent contributor to the alt right blog The Unshackled.

Daniel Gross

A right wing e journalist. Gross is a contributor to the crappy alt right website The Unshackled. Gross is a fitting name for this grub. He has the vibe of Millennial Woes (AKA Colin Robertson, a Scottish neo Nazi video blogger and prominent alt right personality), a creature that he most likely emulates based on his image and general demeanor.
