Who is Sarah Bath
Sarah has been posting her crap since 2007 and many suspect that she is not real. Unfortunately Sarah Bath IS real and she lurks in all political corners in Australia and around our globe. You won’t find the name Sarah Bath but you will find kindred spirits. As an example have a look at some of the sites below and see if you recognise any postings that are similar to Sarah Bath’s postings.
www.greens.org.au (before they became mainstream)
www.archive.org/ put the Greens site in the Way Back Machine
At the top of this page is a link called List of all troll posts. There you will find most of the posts created by Sarah Bath. Of course some have not been picked up by Google. Some have been deleted and others can’t be found but most are there.
EVERY SINGLE ONE of the ”vile bile spewing” urrerance posted by Sarah Bath, came from one of the websites listed above and/or associated Facebook pages.
Why Sarah bath?
For those to the right side of the political spectrum, radical opinions generally remain hidden as the left would rarely post diatribe with the right in mind and vice versa. Sarah aimed to bridge that divide by bringing forward the extreme left opinions found in sites mentioned above and showing them to the world. The extreme left infects organisations such as ABC and other political (mainstream) parties and generally the average Joe wouldn’t hear from these lefties until its too late.
With enough conviction and time, as has happened, left leaning folk hopefully will be less inclined to vote Greens and stick with the ALP while moderate folk will gain utter contempt to the views of the Greens and those with pre-existing distain will loath them even more. Of course the ultimate aim is to ensure that the socialist filth are relegated to the annuls of political history akin to the DLP and the Democrats.
Now on a side note I have heard comparisons to a person/identity called Alain Composta and to be honest I have absolutely no idea who that is. My understanding is that Composta was around before Sarah Bath but there is no link at all. I still dont know if this identity had any aim aside from self glorification.
Just to reiterate, my aim is twofold. Firstly to ensure that the Socialist mantra does not remain under the bed to infest unsuspecting folk and secondly to show decent bloggers of the right, how easy their blogs can be hijacked and, more disturbingly, how many gullible members of the public accept what they read as gospel without questioning or at least conducting basic questions.
The Troll and other descriptors
In the old days of BBS (Bulletin Boards for you Y-Gens), a person posting an argument designed to elicit a response was considered to be flaming. Later on somone who was an online bully (which should be punishable with mandatory imprisonment) was considered a troll.
Someone pretending to be a person of the political right who is actually of the left is considered a Moby. To my knowledge there is no such term for somone of the right pretending to be of the left.
The Straw Man
Some almost astute commenters have described Sarah Bath as a straw man.
I believe that description wouild be apt if Sarah intended to refute an argument put forward. She never got into a debate rather than engage in drive-by trolling. I am sure others with more knowledge would better label her actions.
The dirty tricks played by those of the left are renouned. Look at Getup for example. Look at the ALP media staffer who tried to incite a race riot. The list goes on and the fact that a name for their abhorrent trolling methodology exists is also testamount to how widespread the dirty tricks of the left get played out. Of course the anxt displayed towards Sarah Bath by “fellow” Greens for showing them in a bad light and the numerous private messages pleading with her that such opinions are best kept on the downlo until “we get into power” were also numerous and disturbing.
The first few posts (refer to the LIst of all troll posts) was under the ID of Nora Ferguson and the initial plan was to use both but after a while I lost the password details for Nora and she was relegated to the trashcan of Christine and Sarah H Y.
The progression to Sarah was something that happened over a long period of time. In the very early days, after the terrible events of 2007, I made a conservative comment to the ABC News Breakfast Facebook page. Well the left did not like that and after a campaign of spam mail, hackings and attempted computer intrusion, I never wanted to use my real identity to make political comment again.
Some time passed and I became an observer to the political wranglings on mostly ABC Facebook sites and was shocked about the number of extreme left opinions. Those with right leaning opinions found themselves either blocked or, as is typical for ABC News Facebook pages (or ALP News Facebook page), the right poster can see his/her posts but should the poster log in under a different name, the post would be hidden. Unless the person had two accounts they would be oblivious to the fact that their posts and comments were hidden. Also on a number of occasions when reading the extreme biased posts, I would follow posted links that often were directed towards more extreme socialist websites (akin to those mentioned above.
The political bug kept biting so I eventually created a fake Facebook profile and found myself again being blocked for expressing conservative views. This is when I developed Nora and Sarah.
So as to get cred, I used Photoshop to develop a face-composite using the mandatory feral dreadlocks and tatts. The Facebook “about section” was typical of a feral that would vote with the left and the likes were also typical. I will admit that a great deal of time was not spent on the photo composite (As Peter T rightly pointed out) and perhaps the biggest mistake of the initial photo was the first image (singlet and summer attire) superimposed into a second image (Martin Ferguson protest in Winter. Unfortunately once I started re-posting again it was as if the “audience” completely forgot about this “outing” or a new group of gullible readers then took over.
The scary thing, and I mean scary is that in any ABC pages, the most radical comment I can honestly think up received minimal adverse replies and in some cases actually received likes. A backtrack of the “likers” friends and pages revealed yet another left leaning radical as bad or worse than Sarah Bath.
After a while I was again blocked by the ABC sites because many of the Greens were really upset I would be posting with their logo. There were numerous “official Greens notices” and threats of cyber attack should I not cease and desist immediately. Nothing that can be countered by “deactivating the Facebook profile” then reactivating it in a few months later.
Shortly after this I moved to a few sites belonging to the right. The first one was Michael Smith News Facebook Page. Honestly a truly legendary bloke, an ex- digger and ex copper and he definitely didn’t receive the fair shake of the sauce bottle when it came to reporting the AWU scandal on the radio. Hopefully he will be vindicated when the cases are finalised. Michael also did a great job on the SBS program although that serial twitterer from the left was a distraction to listen to.
I then moved on to The Punch. This blog was a very successful medium for the disinformation project. The secret would be to try to get the post at the top of the list but on many occasions using a few I.T tweaks, my reply would often appear before the original post and many Punchers thought Sarah to be an inside job.
The most important component in posting as Sarah is to use the standard keywords. eg “teh”, “neocon” “vile bile”, “silencing climate deniers”, “for all intensive purposes” etc..
Well it didn’t take long before readers would question the validity of Sarah’s bona fides. Many labelling her a troll and at that stage very few people, even as a right winger) but the secret to Sarah was to keep at it. You see supposing there are 1000 readers of The Punch (or any blog) and 1 person figures it out and posts a reply and say 10 people start to believe that person. After several dozen similar posts from Sarah, those 10 believers would doubt that Sarah is a troll and start to actually believe her;

Sorry, Gab, I thought Sarah Bath was some fiendishly cunning piece of Liberal propaganda, but more techno – savvy people then I assure me that Sarah Bath does exist.

And I rest my case…
Michael Smith’s News blog was the next site and its popularity by this time had reached records. Sarah was able to sign in to his blog with its Facebook account and every one of her posts had attached to it, the Greens logo. The success of her inane ramblings is evidenced perhaps by Michael devoting at least 3 dedicated articles on his blog.
While it was relatively easy to get posts published on Michael’s blog, getting posted on Andrew Bolt’s blog was a great challenge. At times when there were moderators working, about 1 in 5 of my posts would get published. Furthermore the replies on Andrew’s blog were fewer than Michael’s. Either he doesn’t have the reader numbers of his readers are able to sense a post not worthy of reply.
Catallaxyfiles.com is a little obscure blog that I found cross posted in one of other blogs. Also rather easy to get published onto this blog and it appears that most of my postings have been cross posted onto separate independent blogs found only when Googling (see tips below).
Regional Newspapers are extremely difficult to get published in most likely due to the limited readership but out of 10 posts I have submitted to the Townsville newspaper, only 4 have been published.
By far the most enjoyment in responses has been the Pickering Post. Sarah started on Larry’s Facebook page and once banned switched to his blog. One post would often attract up to 100 angry right wingers. Posts were generally released with no moderation at all but this has since changed. Sarah is also completely banned from posting anything to this site and even a Google search “site:pickeringpost.com sarah bath” only returns a few entries, as if they have all been deleted.
Of all the blogs the most disappointing and frightening is posting to The Drum (ABC) because no matter how radical or extreme the post is, there are multitudes of readers that are more than happy to comment favourably. Perhaps given the blatant bias from the entire ABC it is time we off loaded this to someone (perhaps Gina?) Another blog that was a waste of time posting into was that incepid creature Bob somone with a blog about tables or some rubbish. How that thing does not get sued for his slanderous material is beyond me?
Only recently have I discovered the feminist blog called Mamma MIa. Fortunately I can sign up using an avatar (the Greens logo) and the post is published almost instantly. However the blog is a trove of left wing radicals and the number of angry left wingers who state openly that they support the Greens and are embarrassed by Sarah’s views and demand she be silenced can best be described as palpable.
Finally can I say that it is not the content of Sarah’s posts that many are offended by. Here is a post on the Piers Akerman’s blog, where each one of his articles averages around 1000 comments;
I am aware that this post wont get published because my views don’t subscribe to the murdock views.
Anyway, the sky is blue.

The responses were equally vitriolic and numerous. Credit to Mr. Akerman however, is that for my every post he personally responded. This blog hands down contains the most comments per post out of any blog I have posted to.
- Gay Marriage – I personally care little for this subject and believe it is a “nice to have” one day when the economy is fixed, the borders are safe etc. What I dislike it the topic being shoved down my throat every day as if it is the only issue. A check of any of the sites above demonstrate views far more radical than what Sarah has ever proposed.
- Media Censorship – We need open and free media and good quality media. Al Jazeera is the best example of media I have witnessed. Channel 7 is the worst. (Mark Riley’s hack job of Tony Abbotts comments was abhorrent), Does the ABC pull faces with any of the left politicians or just the right?…. The Greens indicated they want to regulate the blogs (read the right wing blogs) and once again have a look at any of the sites mentioned above to get a feel how theleft really feel about this issue.
- Veganism and climate change – The farmers need looking after. Sarah believes that meat should be banned and defence abolished so the sounds are redistributed into sustainable herbiculture (Tofu plantations). Also she mentions credible climate science (anything that was mentioned in Climategate of course, and also use the term catastrophic such as sea levels rising by (Robin via ABC) 100m. Also mention something absurd like linking meteors to AGW. Once again all views that have been expressed in any/all of the sites above.
- Greens Polling - Important to remind the people that after 2010 Greens “controlled” the balance of power in the Senate and what the future holds. Once again views of this arrogance can be read at any of the above sites.
- Socialism – Any excuse to mention the rich (anyone over an average salary) and wanting to ensure the wealth is redistributed. Once again not my views,
- Venesuala - the so called ideal paradise of the left. They have an entire site dedicated to the Australian – Venesualian partnership.
- Welfare – Sarah wouldn’t be Sarah if she wasnt living on welfare (self confessed to be two dole checks) and in a government house and spends her time protesting against the (insert cause here). I have seen many of these ferals with dreadlocks, on the dole, piercings protesting against anything not socialist who incite authorities by throwing human faeces at the police to garner publicity. You know, the typical Greens voter.
- Sport – just incase the skattergun approach missed a few, Sarah believes sport exists only to distract the proles from real issues
Once again these topics that Sarah has posted are not the thoughts of me. They are drawn from any number of websites mentioned above, from comments and discussions from real Greens, from serial twitterers and numerous Facebook groups.
I would highly recommend each and everyone of you develop a left profile like Sarah and to infiltrate these left leaning radical cesspits so as to at the very least, learn how they think and study their manifestos for media domination.
It is very easy to create fake Facebook profiles or post under fake names. It is easy to create a fake online Google history so that when somone checks up on that person a “legitimate” story is found. It is also easy to cloak your I.P so that you appear to come out of another country. Photoshop is very powerful to create fake images.
Because of the ease of being able to create fake images it is important to employ countermeasures. Learn to use Tin Eye to check suspect or questionable images. Learn to check I.P data and above all dont believe anything you read unless it is verified by multiple sources.
If you are running a blog please put something in place to ensure there is validity with the people posting comments. Your I.T people should be able to determine the I.P address of each poster and ideally there must be a registration system in place and take away the anonymous capability.
The big problem the right has is that we are too busy working in our businesses or trying to better ourselves rather than spending time online protesting against “the man”. The right do not lounge around on the dole, throw faeces at authorities in the name of protest, suck on a bong or engage in cyber hacking against decent hardworking folks.
I personally do not get my news from one source. I read Andrews blog and follow news links. I read Michaels blog. I read news.com and even the Age and Guardian. I dont mind News 24 and sometimes read Sky online. By far the most balanced news reporting is AlJazeera English and I hope that our standards can one day be as good as that. Meanwhile I put up with ”prole TV” such as Today Tonight, ACA etc etc, I put up with a lack of understanding or interest in civics and then wonder why people vote the way they do.
Hopefully we have seen the end of the extreme left.
