Keneally is a self-appointed guardian of fake virtue & twisted morals. Her arrogance is breathtaking.
Labor seeks visa ban for anti-Islam speaker ahead of conference
Labor has called for a former Breitbart editor-in-chief’s visa to be cancelled ahead of an Australian-first conservative conference that features former prime minister Tony Abbott and Brexit campaign leader Nigel Farage among its keynote speakers.
Raheem Kassam will speak at next week’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), an export from the United States where it attracts tens of thousands of attendees every year.
Mr Kassam has said the Koran is “fundamentally evil” and tweeted that Scottish National Party Leader Nicola Sturgeon’s legs should be taped shut following a miscarriage “so she can’t reproduce”.
In another tweet, he said a former British minister “was in the special needs class” at school, and once described a female political rival as a “wrinkly old ginger bird”.
The 32-year-old, dubbed “Donald Trump on steroids” by one former colleague, was a United Kingdom Independence Party leadership candidate in 2016 and former chief adviser to Mr Farage.
Labor’s Home Affairs spokeswoman Kristina Keneally said the government should revoke Mr Kassam’s visa for his comments made about women and Islam.
“We should not allow career bigots – a person who spreads hate speech about Muslims, about women, about gay and lesbian people – to enter our country with the express intent of undermining equality,” Senator Keneally said on Tuesday.
No Moslem believes in ‘equality’, you imbecile.
Conference organiser Andrew Cooper accused Senator Keneally of “virtue-signalling” with her criticism of Mr Kassam.
“Her hysterical opposition to hearing things she doesn’t like is typical… she attacks free speech and attempts to belittle those that hold alternate views,” Mr Cooper said.
“She has a history of losing and I think she’s on a loser here too.”
Along with Mr Farage and Mr Abbott, the Republican-aligned CPAC will feature top Fox News commentator Jeanine Pirro, American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp, and NSW One Nation leader Mark Latham.
Liberal MPs Amanda Stoker and Craig Kelly will also speak.
The conference is sponsored by Liberty Works, the American Conservative Union, right-wing think tank Institute of Public Affairs, and conservative grassroots campaigner Advance Australia.
The government banned controversial right-wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos in the wake of the Christchurch massacre after he described Islam as a “barbaric” and “alien” religious culture.
