The Advent Of Sydney ‘Anti-Racism’ And ‘Anti-Fascism’:
The Case Of Matthew Henderson a.k.a. ‘Darp’
We publish two articles here dealing with Mr. Matthew Henderson, a so-called ‘anti-racist’ and ‘anti-fascist’ activist - who goes by the name of ‘Darp’. This is the first of a series of research pieces for the growing Sydney nationalist community – and inquisitive journalists who might be taken in by the lies of Mr. Henderson and his ilk.
Henderson has contributed to the revival of Sydney’s street - and otherwise militant - challenge to the revival of nationalist activism after the long years of the Hanson sleep. Through a ‘blog’ site, selective usage of the Trotskyite street activists and networking with various Zionist and other ‘anti-racists’ and ‘anti-fascists’, Henderson has set out to promote himself as a leader in the struggle against us. He has also provided information and misinformation for his allies.
Unfortunately, in the personage of his alter-ego ‘Darp’, Henderson reveals himself as unworthy even of the leadership of the rabble brought out on occasion to "shut down the meetings of the Extreme Right", as one leftist paper so eloquently described the task during the period of the Hanson agitation.
Henderson’s targets include the Australia First Party (AFP), the Patriotic Youth League (the PYL in particular) and the ‘White Pride Coalition of Australia’ (WPCA). All of these groups are seen as racist and fascist and open slather. The immediate Darpist group (sic) seems to consist of four or five persons. One other is named below. These people seem now willing to carry out their own harassments of their ‘targets’.
The first article is written by Jim Saleam. Mr. Saleam looks at the harassment of two young activists by these Darpists and the possible criminal nature of this campaign. He also thanks the victims and another young nationalist for much of the supplied information.
The second article is written by Val Hale, a person known to another victim of Henderson’s group. Mr. Hale looks at Henderson in his own words. He trusts the reader will excuse Henderson’s excessive swearing etc., however, it must be reproduced accurately in order to demonstrate Darp’s ‘character’. Mr. Hale also notes that Henderson is of mixed ethnic origin: Jewish and Maori. In his commentary, Mr. Hale discusses this in a robust manner to best understand Henderson as he probably understands himself.
It is necessary for nationalists not only to understand the Darpist group, but to assimilate a wider appreciation of anti-racism and anti-fascism (sic) as nationalist activism develops. Forewarned is forearmed.
Darp Targets Two ‘Minors’: Hard Anti-Racist/Anti-Fascist Activism Exposed Jim Saleam
In January, February and March, Matthew Henderson (‘Darp’) set out to harass two young members of the Patriotic Youth League (PYL).
The first victim was Darren. Darren is 17 years and resides with parents. In 2004, he developed a political interest. The second victim was Lachlan. Lachlan was 16 years and resides with his parents. In 2004, he developed a political interest. It is understood that these youth wanted to serve an Australian nationalist organization. Uncertain of where to find one, they surfed the Internet and located certain groups. Later they moved on to the PYL.
Darren indicates that Henderson first contacted him via the Stormfront forum (SF). It was seemingly in the weeks before the 19th January 2005 rally held by Australia First and PYL outside the offices of the CFMEU offices in Sydney. Henderson went by the name ‘whitepride’ or something similar to the best of Darren’s recollection. That particular account has since been deleted by the hosts. Darren, in a private message via the SF website, passed on his mobile phone number to Henderson as the latter mentioned an interest in attending the 19th January 2005 rally. This rally had been mentioned on the public ‘OZ/NZ’ section of SF.
Henderson, now with knowledge of the rally, used this time to organize a small anti-racist counter protest including CFMEU members and Socialist Alliance members plus some other individuals. The 19th rally also featured on the socialist ‘indy media’ or Independent Media Centre. This allowed activists to mobilize to oppose the nationalists. Even so, the nationalist was a success and led to wide publicity.
Darren reports soon after the rally that Henderson began to call him on his mobile phone. A young nationalist interested in the legalities of this situation, asked Darren how many times this happened. "Did it happen more than say 5 times?" he asked. "Yeah definitely", he replied. It seems likely Henderson rung him at least 7 – 15 times over a period that went from approximately 20th January till 15th February, a total period of 25 days or 3 weeks and four days. Darren has recently asked Telstra for his mobile phone records for this period and this will help clarify the matter further.
Darren agreed to meet a prospective member in Sydney at Town Hall steps. This happened in February. Darren arrived early and observed a man sit down on the seats and read a book. After ten minutes Darren approached the man and introduced himself. Soon after 2-4 adult females approached and began to photograph Darren, in particular they photographed his face from various angles. Darren covered his face with his hat and walked away in the direction of Circular Quay passing along the East side of the Queen Victoria Building. The females stopped pursuit soon after. The photos later appeared on the web on ‘Weezil’s (a former journalist and associate of Henderson whose name is Brian Stokes of Round Corner). Henderson also reported the matter on his website.
Later on the same day Darren received a call on his mobile phone from Henderson. Henderson threatened to expose the photographs of Darren on the internet and in newspapers unless, Darren gave him information on the nationalist scene - names, address, schools, work places etc. I believe Henderson wanted information in particular concerning Lachlan, whose email address and general location in North Sydney had been discovered by Henderson via SF or the WPCA forum.
In mid-February Darren named Henderson as a paedophile when he entered the WPCA forum. Henderson responded by emailing Darren threatening him with extensive legal action including suing him and liquidating his parents personal assets and home property, unless Darren apologized in full for his actions. Darren replied by email without an apology but seeking to resolve the matter peacefully. After this incident Henderson no longer called Darren on his mobile phone. Darren received little correspondence from Henderson after this time.
It is the reasonable apprehension of the young person , Darren, that Matthew Henderson may commit further offences in the pursuit of an objective of a political character. It is understood police may recommend an application for an apprehended violence order. At this stage the substantive matters are considered to be of a quality which may lead to appropriate action rendering an application of the former sort unnecessary. It may be open (as below) to consider that Henderson committed a Crimes Act offence.
Henderson then began to target Lachlan on his website Darpism.com. He found out and hinted strongly at Lachlan’s high school ("he goes to the only private high school on the North Shore with a bagpipes band"). This information came from a nearby high school student who knows Lachlan and who happens to be Jewish. Again the connection is unknown between Henderson and this student but he seems to be the third member of Henderson’s three main associates, the others being Weevil and someone else who is good at surfing Google to gather information.
At this time a person who wrote under the pen name ‘Asgard’ and who was involved in the WPCA group had his computer hacked into via his IP address by Weevil. ‘Asgard’s’ situation comes into this account because he had certain mailing contact details and addresses of WPCA members on his computerhard drive. Lachlan confirmed that ‘Asgard’ had his address because he had previously subscribed to a publication issued by the group. Lachlan had also started corresponding with the National Front of New Zealand and had considered at one stage initiating a similar (youth) group in Sydney. He was an obvious target for the heroic anti-fascisrs.
Weevil (or Weezil) enters here more prominently. He e-mailed Lachlan twice in early March. One e-mail informs Lachlan that they know his address. The other (order uncertain) is reproduced below (in part) as well as Lachlan’s response at the top:
At 11:39 PM 03/06/05 +1100, you wrote:
I frankly don't understand why you people are still harassing me. It’s
fairly obvious that your scare tactics have worked and that the NFY is over and I’m no longer active. But if you wish me to announce it then I will. So you won hurray everyone is happy except for the WN community. I don't get why u sent me pictures of darren though....
Henderson is of main interest as he can be pursued for harassing Darren with many unwanted phone calls. This can classified as ‘Intimidation’ as defined below by the Crimes Act. Also Lachlan’s details have been mentioned on Henderson’s website and he has received -emails with his surname and address mentioned courtesy of the individual calling himself Weevil or Weezil. This can be seen as harassment via e-mail. Also both minors Darren and Lachlan have received threats that could be seen as an attempt at blackmail. Darren was threatened that his parents would lose their house in blunt terms if he refused to withdraw the paedophile accusations on Henderson. Lachlan was threatened in the above Weevil e-mail with a custodial sentence if he did not ‘inform’ on someone in the patriotic community.
Finally let me draw your attention to a sentence in the e-mail from Weevil:
"What I am inclined to believe is that you and Darren were given advice by someone in the WN arena that to throw us off your backs, you should hatchet job me & Darp."
The words "that to throw us off your backs" proves the intent and previous actions of both Henderson and Weevil; namely stalking, harassment, and intimidation via both telephone, information gathering activities, email and internet exposés of personal details on websites. Were these two trying to get Lachlan to make some false allegation against a person?
This was no joke, no little high-school stunt. You decided to fuck
around with real adults and their families in a real world of LAWS.
Did you know conspiracy to defame is a CRIMINAL offence, Lachlan? Even
as a juvenile, you could do a custodial sentence for this. I was a working journalist until I retired because my knees quit- but
my brain is still quite sharp, young man.
I bring every one of the investigative skills I ever learned to this
case. Suffice it to say you *really* picked the wrong old fart to piss around with.
What I am inclined to believe is that you and Darren were given advice
By someone in the WN arena that to throw us off your backs, you should
hatchet job me & Darp.
I will eventually find out what happened here. You can tell me or you
can tell it to the judge. You can wear the whole deal or you can tell me who put you up to this. Kyle Chapman? (name removed J.S.) a.k.a. "Kromlek of Asgard"? Someone else?
I want names, Lachy.
The relevant legislation to the possible offences of these Darpists is produced below. It shall be referred to in reference to the circumstances of the current article because it shows that Henderson is technically open to prosecution. Will he be prosecuted? We would hope so, but it isn’t certain.

So, there you have it. The use of questionable methods (or illegal methods as it seems) by the newly emergent anti-racist/anti-fascist movement in Sydney is as disturbing as it comes. The targeting of young people shows these goons will stop at nothing if it frightens people away from the movement. That Henderson will fail personally is inevitable, but he is one small cog in a wider wheel of political intimidation. The game is afoot! Let’s play!
Darp In His Own Words: His Words Condemn Him Val Hale.
Recently the person known as Darp has made quite a nuisance of himself on the Australian and New Zealand nationalist scenes. After taking offence to Patriotic Youth League posters and literature being disseminated on his "home turf" of Eastwood, he set about motivating everyone from local old ladies to Unionist headbangers to joining him in his campaign to "shut down the Nazis" within SIX MONTHS!
Well, with provocation on both sides (but MAINLY his) rapidly escalating, one thing led to another and we soon had the PYL, the New Zealand National Front, the Australia First Party, the National Front Youth, the WPCA and many individuals or lone wolves all caught in the hail of vitriolic ‘loopery’ emanating from his scattergun.
Quite obviously, and a quick scan of his ‘Blog’ will reveal this, we are dealing with a very large ‘barber’s cat’ (full of piss and wind) who simultaneously, and with no apparent sense of irony, brandishes brass knuckles, computer piracy and litigation!
He provoked, harassed and stalked several young members of the PYL, (at least two of whom were minors, sent his agents to chase these kids down the street to photograph them at point blank range and made threats regarding Unionist thugs being employed to bash them.
In desperation to shake him off their tails, one or two of them created an offensive flyer design that was posted briefly on the WPCA Forum. It was removed in less than 24 Hours after the WPCA received a request from Darp to remove it and they complied, deeming it a sensible move toward defusing a situation quickly getting out of control.
But this, and other concessions, were not enough to conciliate a mutually beneficial outcome and rather than calling off the dogs of litigation he has persisted in his threats to "empty the bank accounts" of both the kids and their parents and to "tip them out their houses"!
Subsequent to this failed, though genuine, attempt on the WPCA’s part to broker a cease fire and peace settlement Kromlek’s home computer was hacked, despite Internet security programs and firewalls, and it must be assumed that all information on it, including some WPCA material was copied.
Confirmation that this was perpetrated by Darp or one of his accomplices was confirmed when he posted one of the file directory titles on his Blog page for all to see, including the family name.
So what HAS this legend in his own lunchtime actually got? Well, what follows is briefly what HE says about himself and then, after that, what WE have been able to ascertain about him.
HE says he is a Working Class Trade Unionist. A Maori warrior. A ‘fully trained’ Boxing instructor. A great friend of the Croatian community. A Gay Rights supporter. A Youth Worker. He is engaged to the niece of a district court Judge. On his whim, his Fascist hating Q.C. uncle-in-law will prosecute ‘Nazis’ pro-bono and terminate them with extreme prejudice. He is everywhere and has done everything. He is always right, always has the last word and always wins. He is ten foot tall and bulletproof. He IS the LAW!
His real name is Matthew Henderson-Hau and he is of mixed Jewish/Maori ancestry. He makes a big thing of his ‘Maori pride’ and claims to be a ‘Maori Warrior’ but I suspect this is the cynically expedient choice of a mixed Race misfit (misfit: a person who fits in nowhere), one who desperately seeks approval from at least one of the cultures of which he is a descendant. You see, although his Jewish connection is matrilineal (his mother’s mother was a Swiss Jewess) under traditional Jewish Law he is still regarded as a Mamzer (or mongrel) Jew - and unfit for proper Jewish society. That must hurt.
It is all rather sad really, but perfectly understandable when one knows something of eugenics and the genetic imperatives that drive behaviour. It was inevitable that such a driven and tormented personality residing in what he must believe is a genetic mistake would develop into the hateful sociopath we see today, someone bent on destroying the normal host society.
He desperately seeks to disguise his inferiority complex but he tries WAY too hard.
This manifests in embarrassing behaviour that would normally make him a social outcast (in normal society that is), but among the dregs and dropouts of the Left he is, unbelievable as it sounds, actually elevated to hero status!
Now while I doubt that in today’s morally screwed up World it is actually illegal to have these personal traits at the bottom of your CV in fine print, I could not envisage any ‘Youth services’ employer being overly impressed with giving a person with his degree of moral turpitude access to the kiddies.
From what I am led to understand, all these various ‘social workers’ must hold Government approval and accreditation. I can’t see it being appropriate that this certification be issued to self-confessed gay bar loiterers, drug abusers, extremist political agitators, adults who bully kids at the beach or those that idolise and fraternise with convicted criminals.
The following small sample of quotes from his online diary or ‘Blog’ amply demonstrates the difficulty in ‘defaming’ a person who has no ethics, manners, morals or scruples. It exposes the attitudes and behaviour of a person totally bereft of respect or common decency. I ask the reader to ‘please explain’ what IS there to defame?
Damned by his own words

The self-styled role model for the youth of today reminisces:
"My head is now stuck in a 90’s time warp, an era where I spent my days bumming around at uni, drinking three dollar jugs of beer and smoking spliffs whilst Oasis’s Champagne Supernova or anything by Suede reverberated in the background. But being a poor student, I was then decked out in the post-rave sporty/fashion trackie top look with Adidas gazelles, a Supergrass style Lego cut and an increasing fascination with Cocaine as opposed to Ecstasy. Something that got kinda hairy as the 90’s wore on."
Monday 16th February 2004:
He simply LOVES to work with kids:
"I have discovered a new sport. It is a cross between tenpin bowling, ironman and Turkish mud wrestling. I don't yet have a name for it; maybe one of my erstwhile readers will concoct something based on the following description.
The game is played in the surf, in rough surf with decent booming waves. Instead of simply bodysurfing and catching waves into shore for the pure physio-aesthetic appeal of it, you catch waves and bodysurf whilst aiming your trajectory at very fat children, the aim being to scatter them like tenpins.
Saturday was a bumper crop; I waded out into the surf and cast my eyes around for prospective targets. I spy a cluster of five or six little fat cunts, all of them resplendent with the best man bosoms you've ever seen, one of them is wearing a mini wetsuit and you can make out each goddam individual roll of chubber - he was squeaking as he walked. I swam out past the sandbank and waited for the next set to come in. I lined myself up with the target, moved a few metres to the south to allow for the current, looked back and saw my wave approaching. I sprang up from the ocean floor and hooked myself on it perfectly, keeping my torso ahead of the break; I steamed towards my Burger King sponsored tenpins like a fucking rocket.
BOOM, CRASH, SMASH, CRACK, "WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?" GROAN, MOAN, SOOK!
They scattered. One flew back on his arse and then rolled over on his back; another two clashed heads and stumbled over sideways."
Sickening isn’t it? Wonder how the PARENTS of these kids would feel about having their children physically assaulted at the beach. But what a HERO! He’s the guy you want on your side, unless you’re FAT of course.

And his view on the grossest sickest show ever seen on television?
A program that regularly displays Homosexual copulation.
"I love Queer as Folk."
Sunday 6th June 2004:
Darp proudly displaying his tolerance regarding Women and their right to dress how they please. Mighty Darp. Chivalrous defender of Women and Feminist activist:
"Stop living in denial. Fat chicks are probably the worst offenders here. Prancing around in Gosford skirts (Just before The Entrance) with hail-damaged thighs that look like they've been hanging out at the bottom of a golf driving range. If you've got a body best suited to piano throwing, I, and the rest of physically decent society, don't want to have to look at it. Cover up!"
And for ‘stoutly built’ people in general:
"So what about fat cunts who are happy with their body image? As long as they're not plonking their fat sweaty arse next to me on a packed train, I don't care."
Wednesday 9th June 2004:
Darp shares his wit and wisdom on Australian mainstream politics:
"I like Mark Latham. I like the fact that he comes from a housing commission shit-heap in the western suburbs and I like the fact that he’s got enough balls to stand up to George W. Fucknuckle Bush.
I very much like the fact that he’s bringing former Midnight Oil front man Peter Garrett into the federal political fray and I like the fact that he’s comfortable in using generic Australian idioms. Arselicker. Maybe I like Latham so much because my hatred for honest Johnny has gradually been getting unbearable. I’ve never liked the slimy little fuck but ever since the last election and the Tampa debacle, I’d dearly love to whack off in his salad and watch him eat it, at gunpoint."
Another major motivating point here is that I really, really, really want to see that fucking smarmy, slimy arsed, shit-eating grin wiped of Alexander Downer’s face come election night. I want to see him convulsed over in pile-driven agony when he realises he’ll be spending the next four years peeling off his own grape skins."
Thursday 10th June 2004:
Darp being succinct and to the point:
"Alexander Downer Must Die!"
Friday 11th June 2004:
"As you all know, I love fags and think that there should be more of them in the world, but I do not like private education and everything it stands for."
Saturday 12th June 2004:
"Fuck Australian Rugby Union; fuck it sideways with a butternut pumpkin! Could the anecdotal rumour mill be correct in this instance? That you need be alumni of one of the elite GPS Private Schools in order to further your career in Australian rugby? St-Josephs, Shore, Knox, St-Ignatius, Kings, Newington or any other place where homemade dildo dormitory buggery is rife."
Friday 25th February 2005:
And his message for the NZNF from the tough guy who kicks sand in the faces of children?:
"With the extent of my reach and my BALLS OF FUCKING STEEL it doesn't matter which side of the Tasman you're on, I'll fucken have ya! Simple as that."

The Pink Triangle
"The Beauchamp, the "straight-acting" fag bar probably lost most of its clientele to The Columbian, or did it? Were they ever open at the same time? Of all the places I worked, I probably got the most amount of grief and attempted arse rape at this place.
I’m actually nostalgic for that gay dominated Oxford St of yesteryear. I would much rather run the gauntlet of the grope-fest when I duck into The Stonewall to use the dunnies than see Oxford St get all safe, straight, plain and well…..and well ...BORING."
Strangely, for one who appears to be such a zealous advocate for Multicultural ‘inclusiveness’ and Politically Correct acceptance of ‘difference’, there is a recurrent theme of narcissism and obsession over the body image of others evident in his writings that borders on the homoerotic.
Is this merely more evidence of what psychologists refer to as ‘projection’? If Darp is a self loathing mixed-race nobody, one who constantly seeks imperfections in others to convince himself of the validity of his own junky make-up, we may just have a real case on our hands. More trouble is coming from the Darpists.
