A canary named John

Meet John Sunol:

And meet him again:

From the videos you can gather that John Sunol is not the brightest spark to have graced this world. And you don’t need to be Sherlock Holmes to grasp the fact that Sunol suffers from some kind of physical and mental incapacity.

That’s because he does.

According to Sunol’s website, he was involved in a car accident in the late 1970s. Unwisely, he’s also publicised to the world that he received $400,000 in compensation as a result of that accident. It was placed in trust for him and now the vultures are circling.

And when I say vultures, I mean the anti-discrimination industry and its hanger-onnerers.

They can see a big fat payday coming their way. And to get it, they are prepared to send John to jail.

Because that is exactly where he is headed. And he’ll wind up there because John Sunol is the kind of guy that the world would cross the street just to avoid.

So much for our ‘compassionate society’.

Anti-discrimination law, which pretends to have disabled people at its heart, is soon going to claim as its greatest scalp a brain damaged man who lacks the financial, mental, social or intellectual skills to defend himself or even understand the situation he is in.

And let’s be honest about John. Most of us would cross that street if we saw him coming.

He’s barred from being a taxi driver because he defecated in his pants and fell asleep at the wheel.

He’s simple. And neurotic, narcissistic, prone to conspiracies and has delusions of grandeur.

He can’t get a job.

But he does believe that he will live until Jesus Christ returns.

He also believes that his YouTube rants reverberate around the world when they only do so around his mind. The first video above was published almost three years ago to the day and had just 75 views this morning. A leader of an army of vigilantes ready to wreak havoc across Sydney John Sunol most certainly is not.

One of those views was mine today. The rest probably come from cellar-dwellers who want a laugh at a mentally and physically disabled man before they lodge anti-discrimination complaints against him.

And that really is John’s sole purpose in this world. He’s the guy that anti-discrimination case law is built upon.

Even the New South Wales Attorney General acknowledges this. In his speech to parliament yesterday announcing new laws and changes to the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 (NSW), Mark Speakman cited Sunol’s name. But he didn’t mention that he was brain damaged. Or mostly legally unrepresented.

All that mattered was the case law that the anti-discrimination industry has created at the expense of this mentally-incapacitated shell of a man. Case law that now applies to the rest of us.

Sunol has been taken to the cleaners since 2005. Hundreds of complaints have been lodged against him, firstly by Henry Collier and more recently by Garry Burns.

The old Administrative Decisions Tribunal (ADT) and the new New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) have heard at least 15 cases against him. Sunol now owes Burns close to $60,000, despite Burns’ public protestation that he does not seek financial reward for his ‘work’ (as he describes it).

Sunol is unable to pay and has been bankrupt since 2014. Now the justice system has turned its focus to the trust controlling his compensation payout.

And just what was Sunol’s crime?

Posting incoherent rambling and ranting about homosexuality in general and Burns in particular onto a website that is pretty much frequented only by Burns. This is an exact copy of the first of Sunol’s statements to have been found to be unlawful:

‘I have spoken out sharply against the Gay Lobby and feminist lefttist social changes which are anti-God and out to destroy todays society. This includes,

Same sex partners Marriage:

Adoption for homosexual couples:

Decriminalised drugs, Mariuajana and Heroine ect:

and other such evils.’

Sure. Some may disagree with this but if that is ‘hate speech’ then no one is safe from the anti-discrimination industry.

And it’s also true that Sunol’s other writing contains vulgar language and common slang to describe homosexuals. Some of the content could be likened to that of the Westborough Baptist Church, which infamously and grotesquely picketed the funerals of US personnel who had died in Iraq.

It’s not very nice stuff. It’s certainly not Catholic. But Sunol isn’t picketing funerals. His main point, as far as can be ascertained, is that he believes homosexuality to be immoral. There’s nothing earth-shattering about that.

But mostly he’s blowing into the wind and the anti-discrimination industry is busying itself capturing the fragments of his unpunctuated, poorly capitalised and incomprehensible sentences and analysing them for Thought Crimes.

Burns is just about the only person in the world who cares what John Sunol says. He’s even told the NCAT that he has a ‘google alert’ so that he is notified every time Sunol posts to the internet. What a life Burns must lead…

Sunol has not helped himself by granting control of his website to an autistic man living in Vietnam who fled Australia because he believes he is in danger from Gay Liaison Officers in the New South Wales Police.

This is the real world of anti-discrimination law, where mental insanity is presided over by Thought Police intent on sending a message to the rest of Australia: you’re next.

As I’m caught up in it, I’m either part of that world or rapidly heading that way. This stuff does your head in.

Sunol doesn’t stop. So the complaints don’t stop.

But Sunol can’t stop. He doesn’t know how to. The truth is that he cannot properly be considered responsible for his actions. He needs medical care, not questions from an anti-discrimination commissar.

So he will most likely end up in jail.

Sunol was referred to the Supreme Court for contempt on 25 May. Yesterday he was ordered to pay Burns another $2,500. And he’s also been convicted of using a carriage service to menace, harass or offend Burns. On Burns’ Facebook page there is a comment that Sunol will soon face court again in relation to that matter for breaching orders not to use Burns’ name on the internet.

These charges, by the way, were brought by the same police force that found Burns’ emails offering Islamic organisations my address or threatening me with assault were merely ‘free speech’.

Burns claims that Sunol’s actions have threatened his life. Yet he goads Sunol to continue. Burns’ webpage is often devoted to taunting Sunol and boasting of his victories over this disabled man. In contrast, if I understand the situation correctly, Sunol cannot even launch a GoFundMe page for his legal fees because doing so could identify Burns, breach his orders and land him in the slammer.

Sunol has appeared in courts or tribunals too many times to count. Yet his stuttering words, clear lack of comprehension and incoherence has never once caused anyone to question whether natural justice is served by forcing a legally unrepresented and brain-damaged man to account for his beliefs to the Thought Police.

And now the state that could not bring itself to jail Man Haron Monis, the perpetrator of the Lindt Café terrorist attack, after he was charged in relation to a murder and a series of other violent and sexual crimes is in the final process of incarcerating John Sunol.

This is the sad truth: John Sunol is the canary in Australia’s free speech coal mine.

He’s a nobody. He has no following. He has no influence. He’s not a person in a position of power. He doesn’t even have his mind.

The only things Sunol has left are his freedom and his life. If he loses the former he may well lose the latter too. It’s hard to see him lasting behind bars.

This canary is about to be snuffed out completely by the anti-discrimination industry. And the message will be loud and clear: if it can destroy a loser with nothing left to lose, it can come after the rest of us who do have things to protect and save.

All of us are somebodies compared to John. All of us have more following, more influence and more power. And that means we will also be deemed to have more responsibility for our thoughts and words than John.

That’s the chilling implication in all of this. The anti-discrimination industry does not show its power by taking down the Prime Minister. It shows its power by taking down a John Sunol.

If it can destroy a no-one, it can destroy anyone.

If it has the power to jail a mentally-disabled man, it has the power to jail anyone who is not mad (and drive them insane on the way).

When the John Sunols of this world are shut up, millions more will choose to mute themselves.

The response is silence. Fear-filled, chilling silence.

Let’s hope sanity prevails in relation to this surreal case of John Sunol. The rest of us need this canary to survive, even if for no other reason than pure self-preservation.

If John is jailed, some of us will become the next canaries. The anti-discrimination industry needs them to justify its very existence. And they won’t be someone important (yet)…


Please sign the petition to the New South Wales Attorney General calling on him to hold an inquiry into the conduct and operation of the New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Board.

Hold an inquiry into the New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Board

Dear Hon Mark Speakman SC MP

The New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Board (ADB) is an out of control body of political activists that is a threat to free speech in Australia.

Over the past four years it has:

- unconstitutionally referred more than 24 complaints to the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT),
- refused to accept evidence that serial complainants are lodging complaints to financially hurt those they oppose,
- refused to accept evidence that serial complainants are lodging complaints to harass and damage the reputation of those they oppose,
- failed to pass this evidence to the NCAT, instead labelling it irrelevant,
- accepted complaints from activists who have complained about their own comments on the Facebook pages of those they harass,
- accepted racial vilification complaints against those who express concern about Islamic immigration,
- accepted homosexual vilification complaints against those who condemn naked homosexual men who stand naked in front of children,
- claimed it is unbiased even though it marches in the Mardi Gras, has pledged allegiance to 'Wear it Purple Day' and campaigned for homosexual marriage,
- allowed a serial complainant to lodge hundreds of complaints against a brain-damaged man incapable of understanding the law, and
- met regularly with a group that seeks to decriminalise sex in public.

In the case of Bernard Gaynor, more than 60 legal matters have been commenced as a result of the ADB's failure to abide by the Constitution. This has clogged up the NCAT and court systems. It has cost Bernard more than $200,000 and forced him to sell his home even though none of the complaints against him have been substantiated. Nor did he act outside the Constitution, as the ADB did.

Now the President of the Anti-Discrimination Board refuses to accept the ruling made by the Court of Appeal, upheld by the High Court, that it is unconstitutional for the President of the ADB to refer matters to the NCAT.

All of this has occurred because one activist who dislikes Bernard's view about marriage expressed in Queensland has been aided and abetted by an out of control 'Thought Police'.

In the case of Sonia Kruger, the ADB has sent a message that anyone who criticises Islam could wind up in costly legal proceedings.

And in the case of John Sunol, a brain-damaged man, the ADB has allowed hundreds of complaints even though the defendant is entirely incapable of defending himself or even understanding the consequences of the situation he faces. He may well end up in jail as a result.

None of this is in the public interest. None of this benefits the people of New South Wales. None of this should continue.

But all of it should be exposed to scrutiny.

I petition you to hold an inquiry into the conduct of the ADB, its culture and its failure to act within the Constitution.
