Mohammedan mores, hijabbery and Islamoprop is offensive. Muslims do not represent Australians. Muslims have no part of Australia Day.
Islam belongs to Australia like a pig in a mosque. The scribbler who penned this, Mel Buttigieg, goes looking for supporters of this abomination and finds a few Moonbats. In the end she (or he?) resorts to race and Aborigines, because we’re all boat-people, or something….
‘Where’s the BBQ?’: Australia Day billboard featuring two women wearing hijabs causes outrage
A billboard promoting Melbourne’s Australia Day festivities has caused controversy by featuring two women wearing hijabs.
The sign advertised details of an RACV-sponsored event at Melbourne’s King’s Domain Gardens.
The two smiling women were the only people on the advertisement, which also included an Australian flag.
It appeared alongside the Peninsula Link Freeway, in Melbourne’s south east, and sparked online outrage after a photograph of the sign was first shared by far-right Facebook groups on Friday.

The post was shared thousands of times and sparked hundreds of comments from people who claimed the women, who appeared to be Muslim, did not represent Australians.
“That billboard does not represent Australia,” one person commented.
Another added: “Where’s the BBQ, beach, sun, bikinis? At a quick glance looks like a billboard for an immigration school.
“This board does not represent Australia and how we celebrate it!!”
A third person wrote: “I wonder what would happen in a Muslim country if they put up a billboard with girls in bikinis and shirtless guys having a beer around a BBQ?????”
Some supporters of the advertisement, visible between Rutherford and Dandenong/Frankston roads, argued it helped reflect Australia’s multiculturalism, which should be embraced.
“So whats the problem?!! Are the people in the poster not Australian?! Thats (sic) the whole point, INCLUSION ?????”
“It doesn’t matter what is on the board. Only thing is Australia is [a] multicultural county and everyone who lives there must be proud [of] Australia. So stop that nonsense,” one supporter wrote.
Mel Buttigieg really had to pull this one out like a rabbit out of a hat:
Some social media users likened the campaign to Australia’s British settlers who they said “tried to erase the aboriginal people”.
The billboard came just days after a controversial television advertisement aired, featuring a celebratory barbecue with patrons from different backgrounds and cultures.
The Australia Day ad featuring indigenous Aussies welcoming visitors from other countries was intended to portray lamb as the most multicultural meat, but many viewers were offended at the absence of the words “Australia Day” and the implication that all Australians were boat people.
