When discussing the far-right on this blog, I have often introduced fascist agitator Shermon Burgess as a “Cooma based garbage collector”.
Burgess works (or worked) as an attendant at the Bredbo Waste Transfer Station in Cooma Shire.
I accept the feedback comrades have offered; mocking or appearing to mock Burgess for his occupation as a “garbage collector” is not good politics, and it comes across as insulting to garbage collectors.
Garbage collectors rock, fascists do not.
In future I will refer to Burgess as a “Cooma based fascist” or similar.
I also promise not to make fun of Burgess for that video where he’s defensively insisting that he’s not gay. Burgess’ insecurities about his sexuality are his business!
