Geert Wilders’ visa delay ‘an assault on freedom of speech’, says new anti-Islam party Australian Liberty Alliance

It appears controversial Dutch MP Geert Wilders’ visa to Australia has stalled, meaning he may be unable to launch a new Australian anti-Islam party later this month.

The right-wing Dutch politician has applied for a visa to go to Perth to launch the Australian Liberty Alliance (ALA) – a party inspired by his own.

But the visa is still yet to be granted and ALA president Debbie Robinson is suspicious of the delay.

“I believe that they’re stonewalling the visa… I believe that they are playing political games and in a way it is an assault on our freedom of speech,” she said.

    Yet another case of the authorities addressing a secondary ‘problem’…Australia’s opposition to islamization…while doing absolutely nothing about that islamization which is, of course, the primary problem.

    But those who support Hizb ut-Tahrir are welcome.

    Imagine that snippet stripped of “controversial” and “right-wing.” One then might think that Australia was acting abnormally to deny a visa. And they are, the question is why.

    An other example of civil servants are playing politics, just like IRS the employees in the US.
