OMG, lock the door, draw the curtains and turn off the lights, an election's coming, and a veritable zombie apocalypse of muppets, misfits and morons is on the prowl for our votes. Among them, a gibbering troop of Islamophobic sadsacks (inspired by Geert Wilders no less), called the Australian Liberty Alliance.
Has the word 'liberty' ever been so slighted?
A sample of their puerile and contradictory pap:
"Our Australia stands for individual liberty, small government, Western values built on Judeo-Christian and Humanistic foundations, social fairness and an integrated multi-ethnic society with one set of laws for all, regardless of colour, gender or creed." (australianlibertyalliance.org.au)
Judeo-Christian Humanists aside, check out the ALA's foreign policy. Of the 6 paragraphs devoted to the subject, the final two read as follows:
"Australian Liberty Alliance considers Israel to be the only liberal democracy in the Middle East today. We find Israelis not deserving of the criticism from those with limited understanding of historical and social political developments in the Levant.
"We acknowledge Israel's right to exist in peace and within secure borders, including the traditional homelands of the Jewish people in Judea and Samaria, with Jerusalem as its undivided capital."
IOW, every square inch of Arab Palestine.
Whatever did the poor bloody Palestinians do to this lot?
