Open Letter To My Fellow Libertarians: Where Is Ingram Spencer?

A libertarian United Australia Party candidate at the recent federal election, Ingram Spencer, has disappeared from public view into the injustice system of the police state of Victoria.

I have been warning people about this sort of thing since the 8th of November 2017.

Here is my understanding of the chain of events based mostly on my reading of reports in the mainstream media.

Spencer’s political rivals in the seat for Higgins called him “toxic” and “aggressive” (the Greens candidate for Higgins) and his Liberal Party opponent, the sitting member for Higgins, said that he was “scaring everyone” at the draw for positions on the ballot paper. Australian Federal Police (AFP) then became involved.

A few days later, it appears that a uniformed police officer, M. Kirby of Prahran, took legal action against Ingram Spencer. The most recent publicly available information about this case which I can find is this:

This raises so many questions for me about the integrity of democracy in Australia.

Did AFP become involved because of things said by either or both of the Greens or Liberal candidates?

Did AFP have any direct or indirect contact with Officer Kirby before this action was taken?

If so, does this mean that Ingram’s political rivals directly or indirectly, deliberately or inadvertently, used police action against him to remove him from the race because they were scared or uncomfortable about things he had said or done?

If so, what are the things he said or did to lead to this police action against him?

The following is a recording I made of Ingram articulating some of his opinions about healthy communication prior to the events which lead to his imprisonment:

Ingram Spencer states 4 basic principles of communication for individuals, families and communities.

Does this sound like a man who deserved to be imprisoned because of secret allegations of menacing criminal communication?

Most importantly, where is Ingram Spencer now?

Is he a political prisoner?

Is his current disappearance from public view a part of the death of democracy in modern Australia?

My father “Rick” Fox, and both grandfathers, Professor A.C. Fox and the Right Reverend J.R. Blanchard, all stood up strong for freedom, democracy and human rights for Australia, when the primary enemies of freedom were the Northern Hemisphere’s fascist leaders of the 1930’s and the 1940’s.

Now it looks to me like the most dangerous enemies of what is left of Australian freedom and democracy are in Australia.

I believe that only the sort of genuine freedom of speech, which Ingram spoke up for, can solve this problem.

So I speak up and ask questions about what has happened to Ingram Spencer.

I use freedom of speech to defend free speech.

And I pray to God to save us all from tyranny.

Sincerely,

Life In Australian Jail For A Libertarian Political Candidate Accused Of Communicating With A Woman

Today libertarian politician Ingram Spencer has been released from imprisonment on remand to be confined to his own home.

He described his time behind bars like this:

“I was arrested, stripped naked and kept in solitary confinement. I had my water in my cell turned off for four days: not even able to flush the toilet, brush my teeth or shower,” Spencer told (Magistrate Johanna) Metcalf.

“I was in no position to prepare for a court proceeding. It was quite unreasonable to force me into a court prior to now.” ” – The Age, May 18, 2022

I give Ingram Spencer the presumption of innocence.

He is accused of “using a carriage service to harass” whatever that means.

There are twelve other charges against him, but letting the public know, during an election campaign, what those charges are against this candidate for public office in the highest law making body in the land is not the way things work in the police state of Victoria.

Ingram Spencer is a father of three.

He is a passionate Libertarian.

He is a national political party’s endorsed candidate for political office, who has spent most of the past three weeks of his campaign in jail.

The election is on Saturday.

His name is still on the ballot paper.

His party still endorses him.

In my dealings with him, I found him to be an honest, deeply committed intellectual , a careful, cooperative and considerate man.

He must stay free.

The swamp of the Australian parliament needs men and women like this one.

For Ingram Spencer – We’ll Go A-Waltzing Australia With You

According to the latest news reports, freedom fighter and libertarian politician from England, Ingram Spencer, is on suicide watch in a Melbourne prison.

Australia’s unofficial national anthem, Waltzing Matilda, is a song about suicide.

I create the following imaginative new version of Waltzing Matilda both for Ingram as an honest attempt at empathy for what he is suffering and for a wonderful Christian singer, who has made my own personal distress about what I know of Ingram’s plight a little easier to bear by caring deeply about Ingram’s situation.

With thanks (but absolutely no sycophantic apologies) to Banjo Paterson.

For me the primary question that needs to be answered here and now is:

“What sort of Australia do Australians want Australia to be?”

Why Is Libertarian Ingram Spencer In Jail?

Click to watch Ingram speak about freedom.

Ingram Spencer is a United Australia Party candidate in the marginal seat of Higgins in the upcoming federal election. He is a passionate libertarian.

4 days ago his Liberal opponent, the sitting member, Dr Katie Allen of the Morrison government, said he was too aggressive and that he had been “scaring everyone” at a meeting and then the Australian Federal Police became involved. Note this well: when a member of the federal government running for reelection complained about her opponent’s words, the federal police became involved.

And now Ingram Spencer is in jail charged with being aggressive and spreading Russian propaganda.

It is not 100 % clear exactly what has happened here, but Ingram Spencer’s use of the words “mean girls” and “bitchiness” appear to have been described as “toxic” and “aggressive”. He said that he faced horrible things and they said that he was horrible.

To me this looks like robust debate. Ingram’s words are words that do upset many people but many men are profoundly traumatised by the constant modern feminist descriptions of what they do as normal human beings as “toxic” and “aggressive”.

True freedom of speech can hurt sometimes.

But without it, as Ingram himself insists, all other freedoms die.

I am not scared of Ingram’s words.

But the PC crap which has seen him incarcerated terrifies me.

Ingram Spencer must go free.

(Ingram is reported to have retweeted a meme which says that media criticism of Putin happens because Putin has said that the New World Order is not welcome in Russia. Discussing an opinion of the Russian president about a World Order proclaimed in 1991 by America’s 41st President George H W Bush looks like legitimate political discussion to me.

I think it is a tragedy that Putin has not done as good a job of confronting the approach of the North Atlantic Treaty organisation towards Russian borders as JFK did during the Cuban missile crisis of confronting the proximity of Soviet missiles to America. But people in the West should realise that the Russian borders in question are a very long way away from the North Atlantic and trying to understand and discuss Putin’s policy in ways that differ from the mainstream is something a good candidate should be allowed to do without fear of going to jail for it. Especially in Australia which is even further from the North Atlantic than Russia is.)

Aussie Freedom Fighter #3 INGRAM SPENCER

Ingram Spencer says, “Freedom of Speech is not just another one of our freedoms.

It is The Freedom that all of our freedoms come from.”

He is so right.

A resurrection devoutly to be wished.
