The last thing anybody on earth should do is offer attention to the pitiful troll Michael Freshwater. But in the interests of clearing up the chaos created by his pathological trolling, it’s become necessary for us to do just that.

So, obviously, the first question is who is Michael Freshwater, or more accurately, what is he? This must be answered in segments. Firstly, he is a troll in the most toxic sense. As we summarize his current online escapades, we must return to the beginning of our association to describe both the pitiable individual and his history of duplicity, treachery, doxing, and overall dishonour. This, in turn, will involve a retelling of the last three years of history in both the patriot movement and the world of Nationalism, since so much intersects and is pertinent; revealing a complex cross-plot of iffy characters the depth of which we are still but guessing at. Yet, we will begin at the present.

Most recently, Freshwater became exposed as the craven snitch behind the Ladsleaks Season 3 Facebook page. In fact, in true Freshwater style, he wasn’t so much revealed, in an obscure pattern of behaviour we shall recount later, he was itching to be identified as the culprit; a peculiar strand of his nature that is just one of the many complicated and defective features of his maladjusted faculties.

In classic Freshwater psychopathology, he begs to be known as the culprit of the page. This reference is obscure to the reader but it links and identifies him to court action and with an entity, we shall come to in later segments of this series. Notice too, he cannot start a post without “Bahahahahah”. A fragile attempt at purchase on a superiority sorely missing in his writing abilities

This essay is composed in the interests of protecting others, whoever you may be, from allowing this social media parasite into your world. As we will explain, he is not operating from political motives or ideological passion but out of a psychological compulsion typical of negative social media addiction. He acts from the absence of ethics, human conscience, and remorse that is becoming a recognised characteristic of digital nativism.

Michael Freshwater is the emotionless by-product of the cyberverse along with every other garden variety troll. His chief assumption that everyone that he encounters on social networks has a personality as grubby-minded as he drives himself to push things further and further. He is the classic disconnect which scientists are discovering about social media usage: stuck in the mental binary state which feeds his dopamine as he responds to the premeditated algorithms of Facebook that prizes controversy in its ‘like’ or ‘ignore’ platform. In which case, he is a social media loser, since most of the handful of ‘likes’ he gets come from his own troll accounts. This means, he’s not doing it for the ‘likes’, as does every other conditioned social media user, but for darker reasons; as we previously said.

Indeed, inconsequential in life, social media is his agency of power; where he gushes his hatred of ignorance in others, which is consonant with psychopaths who really just loathe their own weaknesses.

Analysing “trolls” is the new thing and it’s surprising how many are calling themselves “troll hunters”. Usually, from our experience, they tend to be the biggest trolls of all. So, this isn’t a troll hunting exercise, or a pretence at reductionism to examine the causes of trolling, but a caveat to all groups and individuals involved in the struggle to reclaim Australia. It is a lesson in both the toxicity of social media and the dangers it poses to your cause.

It is also instructive in how to restructure your organisations to avoid the blitz of doxing that marked 2018 and in which Michael Freshwater played a key role.

LADSLEAKS

We cannot be sure whether Freshwater was responsible for all three manifestations of Ladsleaks since the first tranche had a decidedly different flavour, but then who knows. Initially, it was a pernicious leaking of online screengrabs from the Facebook Lads Society community. Its intention was initially to incite dissension between the Lads’ founder Thomas Sewell and his long-time friend and associate Blair Cottrell who enjoys a much wider public profile.

An original Ladsleak, concerned with the internal frictions of the Lads Society

From the beginning, these grabs raised questions about Lads Society unity. Aside from being bandied glibly by the Antis’ page, they were shared to the Facebook page of the United Nationalists Australia. We believe the page’s creator(s) intended to use us to further their agenda to generate animosity and discord among the Lads. This was because a quarrel between us and the Lads Society was common knowledge. The reason for the enmity between us, Australia First Party and the Lads Society is a discussion for elsewhere. While we initially resisted this temptation to respond, a particularly contemptible leak which involved defamation of N.S, our editor-in-chief, for its own sake, could not go unanswered. This was the intent of the page’s author(s) all along.

TS-on-UNA-1 (1)
UNA reported on the Lads Society after it became revealed to us by an insider that Tom Sewell was instructing members to avoid the AFP and UNA. Our commentary, fair as it was, then became the subject of an anti-NS in-group chat which Freshwater relished; publishing it in the interests of furthering animosity

The ‘leak’ sent us into a frenzy of trying to figure out who exactly was benefitting from stirring up this kind of trouble: who would’ve been positioned among the Lads to do so and who would hold the motive? This leak signalled a change in the page’s orientation; Ladsleaks was no longer interested in doxing the internal workings of the Lads Society but became all about defaming and slurring our embattled editor-in-chief (from here on referred to as ‘s’), who, like the President of the Australia First Party to which he belongs, seems to occupy that curious position of facing fierce opposition from both the left and right.

Indeed, inconsequential in life, social media is his agency of power; where he gushes his hatred of ignorance in others, which is consonant with psychopaths who really just loathe their own weaknesses.

This situation arises from his possessing two unfortunate qualities: implacability and an appalling habit of writing the truth.

Initially, others speculated about the Ladsleakers. When UNA posted, what was a defensive commentary about Ross “The Skull” May who had been set up by antifascists in the Blue Mountains and arrested for something he didn’t do, the fact we said he is “not a nationalist” became seized upon by the troll(s) behind the Ladsleaks. But a strange thing also occurred.

Firstly, however, it’s fair to say that Ross, by all the conventions of Australian Nativism and Nationalism is not a nationalist since his whole act from the get-go has been based on the universal National Socialist identity; appearing on TV in full SS regalia. He might agree with nationalist ideas but only one who invests themselves entirely of the Australian Nationalist philosophy, and who doesn’t goose-step around in historical German National Socialist costume, is entitled to be considered an Australian nationalist by their peers.

In our regard, he is more by way of a caricature and willingly contributed to creating a self-parody of himself. But again, we were warning the wider nationalist community about a group of antifascists in NSW’s Blue Mountains; particularly Katoomba where a notable busker on Katoomba Street who wears dreadlocks and is part of a clan of local Antis that drink at the Gearin hotel struts around pensively. The Antis worked to have that post removed from Facebook, fearing our description would lead to them being hunted.

Yet, the logic of the exercise was overlooked and was being deliberately so because it was part of an ongoing harassment campaign led by certain individuals against our editor-in-chief. Nonetheless, it curiously interconnected with this matter regarding Ross when ‘somebody’ with access to Ross’s Facebook account posted a denunciation against our ed slandering him, as usual as being a “Jew” and a “homosexual”, but mainly on the grounds of writing that Ross was not a nationalist. We know that the originator of these two abominable lies is the cowardly and furtive leader of the Sydney Lads Society, Mark McDonald.

It is also instructive in how to restructure your organisations to avoid the blitz of doxing that marked 2018 and in which Michael Freshwater played a key role.

We have published much about McDonald. As time goes on, we suspect there’ll be plenty more to add; as those he’s beguiled around him wake up to the fact, he wasn’t just a poor innocent newcomer to the country from NZ who met with the wrong crowd, but from the moment he arrived was an agitator and provocateur whose stories and behaviour never added up. We know too that he has had contact with one of the identities which led to nationwide defamation of our ed.

Given Mark McDonald’s  (R) manipulation of The Skull (L) back in the S88 days, and given he and he alone generated the false story about our ed-in-chief, for reasons we will come to in a later segment, it was reasonable to assume he had the access to the Skull’s account; as he’d previously promoted him as a social media identity

However, we mention him here because in a previous incarnation during 2014-15 McDonald led an ill-composed grouplet of Hollywood Nazis called Squadron 88. During that time McDonald courted Ross May and recruited him to anti-mosque rallies in Sydney’s western suburb of Penrith provoking Ross to his usual modus of public behaviour that saw him moved on by police. McDonald even went on to try and exploit him as a social media personality which Ross was not equipped for.

It was common knowledge to some that Ross had handed the password for his Facebook account to others since, while he occasionally peruses FB, he seldom if ever posts. One of these, logically, must have been Mark McDonald. Thus, the condemnation of S screamed not just fake (since Ross wouldn’t know him from a bar of soap) but had McDonald’s deceits written all over it. Little known to the troll who posted from the account, one of the AFP also had access to Ross’s account.

Fake post

When this other person contacted Ross about the post, he denied any knowledge of it and didn’t even know who S or United Nationalists Australia are. He then posted a denial and disclaimed any ownership of the post’s content. UNA responded with a ‘gotcha’ post, that pointed all of this out, and named McDonald as the author of both the fake post and most likely was involved in Ladsleaks too.

Our first reaction was to blame McDonald who we suspected, being a slimeball, of being behind Ladsleaks. It also figured he would have access to The Skull’s FB page. We later retracted this post with commentary, because we are big, expansive men and Freshwater is a slug

This didn’t stop Ladsleaks, who had immediate access to the fake post publishing it with his usual third-grade vitriol.

As all trolls who have advance knowledge of the disturbances they instigate, the Ladsleaker went off in his superior scoffing and mocking style — belittling S as a fool and a hypocrite and in a later post on his largely unread page he asserted that a “retraction” was in order presumably since he hadn’t discovered the “true” originator of the fake post, which he knew, and was eager to share that fact for his own perverse jollies.

Freshwater takes great pride in the conflict he causes from the anonymity of his living room. If McDonald didn’t do it then Ladsleaks has as boastfully doxed the only other likely candidate who, as we tell Freshwater’s story, was solely responsible for importing this virus into our world. Wherever Freshwater posts, he’s usually not far behind. He cannot plead ignorant to Freshwater’s political crimes because he’s aided and abetted them at every turn.

However, we hadn’t deduced that he was behind the Ross May account post until a reference to a person to whom the page’s author had played a great hand in defrocking became ever so clear as Freshwater goaded us into realising it was him. Which meant the person with the keys to Ross’s account had been Freshwater’s accomplice since the word go. He was so subtle as to even give away the fact “He is a member of AFP” as he jabbered on about N.S’s “tinfoil hat” conspiracies, ironically, while the very nature of the exchange was taking place because of a conspiracy against him. But if he thought that the AFP was duped by this “AFP member” in anything other than his link to Ross’s account then it’s another example of both he and Freshwater overestimating their cleverness.

Freshwater cannot help but dox his own mate, V1. And he talks about “tinfoil hat theories” while this very post is evidence of a conspiracy. Not too sharp is old Freshwater; not the brightest colour on the palette 

In fact, the party has been aware of this person’s subterfuge for many, many months. So much evidence had accumulated against him that he was the subject of a rare meeting of the national council. The only one who didn’t know was him. And if he wants to blame S, who never did a thing wrong to him or to Freshwater for that matter, then he had better take a long hard look in the mirror.
