Nippers cancelled after threats over Pride Flags


david guru graham conspiracy theorist nippers surf life saving

A surf life-saving club cancelled nippers over the weekend — the last of the season — after notorious conspiracy theorist David ‘Guru’ Graham posted a threatening video online.

Video below — WARNING: offensive, homophobic and transphobic ranting.

Graham initially posted video footage of himself ranting at volunteer lifeguards and beachgoers at North Wollongong over Pride Flags on the beach. In a subsequent video, he called on followers to “hit our surf clubs this weekend.”  He instructed them to wait until the “four and five-year-old nippers” are in the water.

“Then we go up and we see these people in the surf life saving facilities and ask them why they’re pushing this woke shit… Why they’ve got their rainbow flags everywhere.”

Thirroul Surf Life Saving Club subsequently cancelled Sunday’s nippers. The club posted that they took the action because of activity “which may affect clubs across the Illawarra related to this weekend’s support of Pride Week and inclusivity and diversity.

“Whilst we in no way condone this type of behaviour, the safety of our volunteers and members is paramount.”
