The last two years we’ve seen a lot of independent media and personalities spring up in response to the growing tyrannical behaviour of the Australian ruling class. Some of them good, some of them average, some of them just blatant grifters and provocateurs.
One guy who has sprung up is the ‘Aussie Cossack’ Simeon Boikov, a guy of Russian background in Sydney who made a bunch of videos of him provoking NSW Police last year (not excusing the Police behaviour towards protests last year but this is 90% of his content).
For starters, I don’t give a fuck about Russia. Yes, I hope there is no unnecessary conflict in the Ukraine because Europeans killing each other for globalist bankers is old news and can fuck right off. And yes, the history of Russia being destroyed by globalists in the early 20th century has been suppressed. If more people had read Solzhenitsyn and the horrors of Bolshevik Russia, then they wouldn’t be bringing up the Austrian Painter every five minutes to describe the current state of affairs. But seriously, Australia has no real connection with Russia and we’re an afterthought to them.
Anyways, last weekend Boikov was at a protest doing his usual thing when he was confronted by a masked member of the public on his allegiances and behaviour. The MSM is claiming Boikov is a Russian agent, based off an ABC 4Corners report from 2018 when Boikov, wearing a Russian military uniform, stated that Australia was ‘a great place to push a foreign agenda’ and ‘an enemy state’ in the context of the MH17 disaster.
The bloke challenging him at the protest, identifying himself as ‘Liam’, recorded it on his phone. If you missed it here it is:
Cossack uploaded his version of events here:
Now, whether you agree with the bloke challenging him (a lot of what he is saying is provable and a good rabbit hole to go down) is a separate argument. More importantly, look at how Boikov responded.
Firstly, he demanded to see the questions like any good MSM journalist would. Yes, ambush journalism from the MSM is nothing new, however if he knew what he was doing he would be comfortable responding to anyone at that event. Instead, he spent the whole time going after the guy personally (claiming the guy’s hands shaking was an attempt at intimidation and irrelevant). It was Boikov who was the nervous one.
Boikov didn’t actually address any of the guy’s arguments or points. He essentially just played the man the whole time, threw out generic claims about racism, anti-Semitism, family friendly atmosphere and the rest of it. Boikov claiming he isn’t a foreign agent and betraying Australia on the basis that he was born here is meaningless – that has been done over and over throughout history. Been to Canberra before, Simeon?
Also, note the classist slurs about Centrelink and the like. For a guy that’s supposedly representing the United Australia Party and defence of working Australians, would he feel comfortable saying the same thing to all those Australians forced onto welfare because they refused the vaccine mandates and are currently the new kulaks? That’s a great look for your party there, Craig Kelly.
Boikov’s constant spruiking of multiculturalism is garbage as well and just a shield he tries to hide behind (he does it on other videos). Has he not noticed that the protestors at these events are nearly all white and of European background? The ones descended from those who founded, built and want to save the country that was handed to them? Correct if I’m wrong, but I sure as hell don’t see many, if any at all, Chinese, Indians or Middle Easterners at these protests (I’ve been to a few) save for a few tokens on camera. So much for that ‘multicultural success’ right? It’s almost as if the latest imports don’t care about the country they’re in and are just here for the economic benefits?
In short, this just says to me there isn’t much to Boikov and he’s a self-interested, waste of time and attention. It’s ironic that he claims the moral high ground over the MSM by using the exact same tactics and perception management techniques they do. I also think he’s hiding behind the fake Russiagate thing to some extent to legitimise himself.
Whether or not Boikov is a legitimate foreign agent I don’t know and can’t prove or disprove. I wouldn’t be surprised if he is and only he knows the answer to that question, but at the moment that really doesn’t concern me too much. In a speculative sense, at worst he’s a foreign agent intentionally misdirecting protests, at best he’s just an opportunistic, 2nd rate grifter cashing in on the anti-establishment zeitgeist the last two years. He seems to have more outfits then Justin Trudeau, depending on what audience he’s trying to attract.
He’s also now threatening to sue journalists for defamation who are alleging he is a foreign agent. The hilarious part is he’s using the law firm Xenophon Davis. Yes, that Nick Xenophon. Nothing says disprove foreign allegiance more than by using an ex-Senator and lawyer that took money from a Chicom.
I thought Russians, especially Cossacks, were tough? How thin-skinned do you have to be to go around throwing threats of defamation and lawfare around? Thou might be protesting too much, but whatever no-one cares.
People like Boikov have come along the last two years because in my view, people in Australia are hoping for a hero to save them and don’t want to hear the truth that they have to save the country themselves. This allows people like Boikov and Avi Yemeni to take advantage.
TL;DR – Don’t waste your time and energy following this guy. The only one worse is Yemeni and they’re doing essentially the same thing. Although, dual-citizen and self-confessed, ex-IDF zionist Yemeni is a lot more open about his politics.
I will say kudos to Liam for confronting him, because a lot of these grifter types rely on a one-way audience and need to be held to account. I’d personally like to see more people confront Yemeni, just not in one of those completely staged, Rebel News confrontations he does while hiding behind his bodyguard and asking for donations.
Some of the people, some of the time.
