Pastor Danny and Lord Monckton launch Rise Up Australia Party here in Canberra

By johnboy - 12 February 2013 30

He may have lost the Battle of Mount Ainslie but Canberra still makes a better stage than the backwoods of rural Victoria Pastor Danny Nalliah normally lurks in.

News has a piece on yesterday’s party launch at the National Press Club:

Rise Up Australia will push for cuts to Australia’s “Muslim intake”, for an end to multiculturalism and for protection of Australia’s Judaeo-Christian heritage.

Political analyst Associate Professor Haydon Manning said that with both the Labor and Liberal Party “on the nose” voters might give such “extremists” a go.

“They present extreme views (and) the stark reality is it’s a very small minority of voters attracted to those views,” the Flinders University head of politics and public policy said.

“But it’s a reasonable point to reflect that the major parties are on the nose and that voters could cast around to find another place to park their votes as a protest against the majors.”

Associate Professor Manning also said any success would be dependent on their financing, their ability to attract “foot soldiers” for the campaign, and any preference deals.

Pastor Daniel, a former Family First candidate who was asked to leave the party, told a rowdy crowd in Canberra yesterday that the party was “determined to be politically incorrect”.

Who is this Associate Professor Manning fella? There have always been “extremist” groups in Australia, and to a certain extent the major political parties have always been on the nose.

Manning is right that this group’s success will depend on finances, foor soldiers, preferences etc. Hardly a great insight.

I rarely do this, but my prediction: no seats.

Monckton’s an interesting development.

He rarely pops up without a billionaire’s hand up his rectum.

Divisive politics seems to be a favoured tactic of the mega wealthy to distract us from what they’re up to.

It could be Rise Up just making a lot of noise will suit their purposes though.

I must agree with Matt on this one :)

and… it’s ALWAYS amusing when non-indigenous Australians criticise multiculturalism.

Well that’s a broad statement, and I guess it all depends on one’s perspective. Dick Smith, for example, is either an Aussie hero or a nutter. I suspect, like all humans, they’re simply flawed like the rest of us. Although, now you’ve got me thinking… perhaps that Tuckwell fella IS an evil mastermind…!

If they want to spend scarce funds paying for Monckton’s trip, all power to them. Or, perhaps he was already out here on a visit for another purpose. Don’t know. Whoever, if anyone, is bankrolling the party will have to declare it publicly eventually (albeit not necessarily before the election).

Having Monckton speak was different, considering he isn’t Australian, although he would be popular amongst the group Nalliah is attempting to court.

I don’t know what is truly motivating Nalliah, yet sometimes there are no conspiracies. I mean, I hardly think there was a sugar daddy bankrolling the Nalliah protests regarding witchcraft a few years ago (unless you know something I don’t).

Monckton’s up to his nuts in the libertarian political project being funded by some of the wealthiest people in the world to safeguard that wealth.

If you’re not across that you really need to read more widely.

Just look at the supporters. Angry and cardigany. If Jesus appeared among them they’d send him back to where he came from.

If they lean their argument towards population stabilisation, they may win more votes than expected.

If you’re relying on Lord Monckton to give you credibility, you’re already screwed…

Of course he’s being funded. But you’ve linked Nalliah to some sugar daddy. It might correlate, but there’s no evidence of causation.

.

nothing wrong with safeguarding ones own wealth. Rich or poor.

It usually comes hand in hand with personal freedom. Go libertarians I say.

Pity these guys do not reflect libertarian values though.

And you are unlikely to ever get solid evidence, but the correlation between extremist christians with their racist/sexist views, and libertarian / right-wing billionaires who want small government and miniscule tax rates is well-documented.

I don’t want to be like Noam Chomsky and quote myself, but this sort of stunt-launch is what I was talking about in my recent post on fringe candidates, titled “Philip Pocock and the October 2012 ACT Election”.

Yeah, well looking at the grand scheme of things I don’t see much of a correlation between promoting libertarianism and promoting anti-Muslim propoaganda.

Stunt launches aren’t new.
