Fuck them.


Yeah, not personally concerned for how much property or money he does have. I take this as a small measure of being able to say "sod off" to the PC narrative.

RE: Australia's highest paid rugby player refuses to retract "homophobic" st...
The media is bitching about him having 7 million dollars worth of property. And they are mocking him for saying he is in the fight of his life, and comparing this to other go fund me campaigns where children are dying of cancer.

Well guess what mother fuckers. Almost nobody agrees with you except for a few weirdos with no common sense. While it's sad that some children are dying and need money, Folau's case is something that everybody can relate to. While not everybody agrees with his comment, few people are opposed to his right to voice them. If it could happen to a top sports star, it could happen to anyone. And in fact it happens all the time, except it isn't publicised.

Here's something interesting I found from the Australian Human Rights Commission Act of 1986. Here, the definition of discrimination is:
Quote:any distinction, exclusion or preference made on the basis of race, colour, sex, religion, political opinion, national extraction or social origin that has the effect of nullifying or impairing equality of opportunity or treatment in employment or occupation;

I'm not a lawyer, so please correct me if my interpretation is incorrect, or if there are other laws which supercede this. But it specifically mentions discrimination as it relates to employment, and therefore Folau's human rights have clearly been violated. It's sickening that Rugby Australia had pushed this through so publicly, with the media cheering from the sidelines, when this is a clear breach of the law.

Most people don't care about his tweets. But there are an awful lot of people who are concerned about the way he was treated, and secretly want to teach Rugby Australia a lesson.
So it's no wonder that the fund is currently $600,000. This isn't just a fight for his life, but a fight for many people's lives who have/could be destroyed.

I want Folau to get his 3 million, hire the best lawyers in the country, and rape Rugby Australia hard. I want him to take them for all they have, in order to silence and humiliate the smug, shrill minority who have learnt they can get away with this shit.

When I wrote my first post above, it was $603,000. When I wrote this post it was $604,000. Just checked again and it's $605,000. I can't wait for the media hysterics when it hits a million.

They're going after his wife now, Maria Folau, who is a New Zealand netball player who represents the national team. I couldn't make this up - the front page headline in New Zealand newspapers is essentially "Wife shares husband's Go Fund Me page." and in the mean time it keeps ticking away and the donations keep flooding in. It's at $691,000 now.

Ugly, warthog looking feminist ex rugby player Liz Ellis:

"Yeah nah not good enough. How about this: There is no room for homophobia in our game. Anyone who is seen to support or endorse homophobia is not welcome. As much as I love watching ⁦@MariaFolau
⁩ play netball I do not want my sport endorsing the views of her husband."

A woman of degeneracy wanting a woman of principle to lose her job just because she retweeted her husband's gofundme page.
What a slob.

The one on the right would get hammered, pass out, piss on the rug, wake up, hit on a Chad, get rejected, then file a false rape accusation the next day to cover her ass.

If the usual elements put the same amount of energy into caring about govt corruption, homelessness, healthcare e.t.c than they do about 'homophobic' statements..effective change could take place. They don't.

What's more gob smacking is when the Australian Imam's council made a statement about legalization of gay marriage, saying such relationships are 'forbidden' not one peep from lgbt, sjw's or leftist progressives. Australian Imam's council was never condemned and ridiculed as Folau is. None of the cowards who are attacking him would dare post anything on social media against Islam's treatment of gay people.

As a drunk and an atheist I’m offended by his statement.

Gofundme has shut down his page due to it breaching their 'terms of services'. They have refunded all donations.

This is an absolute piss take.

They knew they were losing so they took their bat and ball and went home.

Pathetic.

This is why Bitcoin is needed. Just set up your own website and have a public Bitcoin address. Put the link to your website on your social media like FB, Twitter and collect. Australians can censor gofundme but not decentralized cryptocurrency.

Good luck trying to get anyone to actively spend their Bitcoin when they're all just HODLing for the moon!

It had passed 3 quarters of a million dollars last time I checked.

They knew that with a properly funded legal team, Rugby Australia is bound to lose. Time to shut it down.

Most irritating thing is the leftists celebrating like this is some big win for them. They can do whatever they want, but people are rejecting their narrative.

This is the reason why the conservative party in Aus recently won the 'unwinnable' election.

Maria Folau: Netball star will not be punished for social media support of husband

[Image: _107495205_folaubody_getty.jpg]

Quote:Netball star Maria Folau will not be punished for supporting sacked rugby player husband Israel Folau.

Australian rugby union authorities terminated the devout Christian's contract over a social media post in which he said "hell awaits" gay people.

New Zealand international Folau, 32, shared a post from her husband on social media asking people to support his legal action against his sacking.

Australia's netball authorities - where Folau plays - have backed her.

In a statement, the sport's national governing body Netball Australia said it is "committed to providing welcoming, inclusive and supportive places for all people to play and watch our great game".

"We are aware that Adelaide Thunderbirds' athlete Maria Folau re-posted her husband's GoFundMe page details via social media. There is no action required by the league," the statement said.

"We will continue to support Maria as a valued member of the Thunderbirds and the Suncorp Super Netball league."


A statement by the chief executive of regional body Netball South Australia, Bronwyn Klei, said Folau has not broken the rules of her contract.

Klei added: "First and foremost, I want to be very clear that Netball South Australia is fiercely determined to provide an inclusive environment that allows anyone to participate in the great game of netball regardless of gender, belief, age race or sexual orientation.

"We also believe in fairness and perspective. Like millions of other people across Australia, Maria Folau uses her personal social media platform to share her life and beliefs with her family, friends and fans.

"While Netball SA is no way endorses the reposting, we do not believe Maria has contravened our social media policy."


Folau was in action on Sunday, missing two shots on the buzzer as her Thunderbirds side drew 51-51 with New South Wales Swifts in the Australian Super Netball Premiership.

Folau - the background

Capped 73 times by Australia, Israel Folau has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise AU $3m (£1.6m) for his legal case against his sacking.

By Sunday morning, more than 8,500 people had contributed AU $662,000 (£360,000) to the appeal.

Rugby Australia says Folau - who has also represented his country in rugby league and Australian rules football - was sacked "because of a serious breach of the Professional Players' Code of Conduct".

He has taken the matter to the Fair Work Commission, Australia's workplace relations tribunal, claiming his contract was unlawfully terminated.

Last weekend, Folau was recorded delivering a sermon at his church in Sydney. He said "the devil" is trying to influence the debate over transgender rights.

His wife has been questioned about his comments since his original social media post in April, but refused to comment.

Australia netball international Ashleigh Brazill recently said she received the New Zealander's support when she married her female partner.

Folau has 138 Test caps for the Silver Ferns and is expected to feature for her country at this summer's Netball World Cup in Liverpool, which starts on 12 July.

I'm neither religious nor Christian - I put this down to freedom of speech. People should be allowed to express their views and have the right to offend.

This is a 2+2=5 situation. It's obvious from biology that men are meant to be with women, but the cunts in charge are trying to change what is considered normal.

You just have to pay attention to history and accept that nothing in the human spirit has fundamentally changed over the mere last hundred years.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.

Can't believe gofundme closed down his page, I'm furious. What's more - lgbt groups have set up rival pages:

https://www.gofundme.com/NoToFolau [the comments are mainly in support of him, not the freaks).

At least they know Folau isn't alone in his views, and certainly isn't alone in thinking he has a right to air them.

Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats. - H L Mencken

GoFundMe has said Folau's campaign breached it's terms of service:

GoFundMe Wrote:"Today we will be closing Israel Folau’s campaign and issuing full refunds to all donors. After a routine period of evaluation, we have concluded that this campaign violates our terms of service," GoFundMe Australia regional manager Nicola Britton said.

"As a company, we are absolutely committed to the fight for equality for LGBTIQ+ people and fostering an environment of inclusivity.

"While we welcome GoFundMes engaging in diverse civil debate, we do not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion.

Its the same old story. Shutting down any support for non-progressive ideology. Then all the progressives coming out in support saying 'its a private business, they can do what they want', and backflip when you raise the issue of bakers denying service to gays. Selective enforcement of 'values' to win the culture war.

The right needs to create its own institutions or this nonsense will continue.

Well, it does really...
Quote:GoFundMe's fine print says the crowdfunding site cannot be used for "campaigns we deem, in our sole discretion, to be in support of, or for the legal defense of alleged crimes associated with hate, violence, harassment, bullying, discrimination, terrorism, or intolerance of any kind relating to race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation or sex."

If GoFundMe was to start getting piled on by the international media for allowing Folau's campaign on there, they would need some huge balls to refuse to shut it down.
