New Aussie anti-Islamic party guns for 20 per cent of the vote
Australia officially now has a political party modelled on the far-right wing movements in Europe and dedicated to the idea that Islam is a “totalitarian ideology with global aspirations”.
Everyone who opposes the Islamic expansion project is instantly smeared as “far-right”. ALA is not “far-right”, it is a party of concerned Australians from all walks of life. (SY)
The Australian Liberty Alliance gained approval from the Australian Electoral Commission on Wednesday for registration as a party, having signed up well over the required 500 members and attracted no objections.
Its national secretary, Ralf Schumann, confirmed that controversial anti-Muslim Dutch politician Geert Wilders planned to launch the party on October 20.
Geert Wilders is not “anti-Muslim”. If anything, he is anti-Islam. He is arguably the most popular politician in Europe today who leads the Netherlands strongest party, the PVV, Party for Freedom.
Mr Schumann told sympathisers this week that the party faced “a strong headwind and … some nasty windshears”, but reminded supporters that “so did like-minded parties with similar policies in Europe”.
“And see where they are a few years later: In the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Austria, France and Italy – they are supported by millions, already poll in the 20 per cent bracket, win seats and slowly return common sense and Western principles to their parliaments.”
That’s a fact, Mr Bachelard. Deal with it.
Mr Schumann refused an interview about the party, which is the political offshoot of the “Islam-critical” Q Society. But Q Society national president Debbie Robinson, who is also a director of the ALA, told Fairfax Media that Islam was “a dangerous ideology that’s definitely not compatible with Western culture and society”.
“There is no moderate version of Islam … there may be people who don’t follow it to the letter, but there is no moderate version, so it’s dangerous. It’s dangerous for our society.”
In Q Society emails, Ms Robinson has said the Australian Liberty Alliance intends to “rebuild the lucky country”.

The party’s manifesto says “Our Australia stands for individual liberty, small government, Western values built on Judaeo-Christian and Humanistic foundations, social fairness and an integrated multi-ethnic society”.
It outlines a number of policy positions including “smarter, smaller government”, and “integration over separation” when it comes to multiculturalism.
Islam, the manifesto says, “uses the religious element as a means to project itself onto non-Islamic societies … No other religious ideology in our time has both the doctrinal aspiration as well as the economic and demographic muscle to impose itself globally”.
“Core policy” was that “all attempts to impose Islam’s theocracy and sharia law on our liberal society must be stopped by democratic means, before the demographic, economic and socio-political realities make a peaceful solution impossible”.
