Dutch firebrand Wilders attends anti-Islam party launch in Australia

Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders was Wednesday shouted down by protesters as he helped launch a new political party in Perth, the anti-Islam Australian Liberty Alliance.

The Dutch firebrand and eurosceptic, who was controversially granted a visa, said the new party was modelled on his own Freedom Party in opposing “the Islamisation process”.

The secular Australian Liberty Alliance was set up by the Q Society of Australia, a volunteer-run anti-Islam lobby group established in Victoria state in 2010. The size of its membership is not known.

    “Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders”
    Yeah, right. He’s about as far right as Tommy Two Passports. He’s just got his head screwed on straight about Islam.

      There’s no such thing as plain old “right wing” politicians, they’re all either “far right” or “ultra right”.

      Blame the ultra far left that has taken over control of the media.

    I’m an active supporter of the Australian Liberty Alliance and will be applying my awesome analysis skills on the data from past elections to determine which polling booths will be most open to ALA Senate candidates. We figure that many conservatives will be pissed off by the recent change of leadership and may well vote ALA in the Senate as a protest (while still voting conservative for the house). So we want to make sure that we have people at these key booths on voting day.

    Just a note: It is very unusual for Senate-only parties such as the ALA to have people handing out how-to-votes on polling day.

      I wish we had a party with the balls to call themselves the Liberty Party and mean it. Minimal government and if you want Shariah, goodbye.
