Australian politician Hanson says she wants a ban on Muslim immigration

Far-right Australian politician Pauline Hanson has said that she will target Muslims seeking to come to Australia, while calling for tougher immigration controls during her campaign for a Queensland Senate seat in the upcoming election.

The former fish and chip shop owner, who claims credit for forcing the Howard Government to adopt a harder line on immigration controls more than a decade ago, was quoted by The Courier Mail as saying, "I'd like to have a look at putting a moratorium on any more Muslims coming into Australia."

  1. It's odd how wanting to ensure the safety of your citizens and to protect your culture earns you the label "far-right".

    The implication is that to want these things is somehow extremist.

    I guess we can thank political correctness and multiculturalism for such a sorry state of affairs.
