The Australian Protectionist Party has made an open commitment to register as a political party for federal elections. This is because we are committed to representing the majority of the Australian people who want to protect the Australian way of life.
However, information (via a confidential government source) has been received that the government intends to throw up every obstacle possible to stop the APP becoming registered. Rather than enable all political viewpoints to compete for votes on a fair and level playing field, there are Multiculturalists who would rather act like Third World banana republic dictators.
Ominously, and perhaps not without coincidence, ASIO have recently made contact with a member of the Australian Protectionist Party, asking him to come see them for a meeting. What do they want to know? Why did they not approach APP officials instead? APP policies, strategies and tactics are available on our internet sites for all to see.
Australia has already seen interference with the political process, banana republic style – we saw how, at the highest levels of government, underhand moves were carried out which led to the blatantly political jailing of Pauline Hanson under extremely dubious circumstances (a shady conviction which was later overturned).
We are concerned that there are similar moves afoot to try to derail the registration of the APP. We are concerned that underhand tactics are intended by the current government to silence their political opponents. It has happened before and will quite likely happen again. This is an intolerable situation in our democracy.
Bullies should be exposed whenever they rear their ugly heads. If the Labor government is using ASIO to carry out some kind of underhand strategy, then that should be opposed. We strongly suggest that any members or supporters who are approached by ASIO should not talk to them whatsoever (unless co-operation is required by law). If you are approached, don’t be alarmed, just politely but firmly tell them “I am not interested in talking to you” (repeat if necessary). If the secret police want information, then they can look at our websites like anyone else; if they are to act as a politicised branch of government, like the KGB, then we will have no dealings with them, in the interests of protecting the democratic traditions of Australian politics.
The APP stands committed to pursuing our goal of building a nationalist political party and social movement, including standing candidates in elections around the country – nothing more nothing less. This should be the right of every Australian. If Australians have a different view from the Labor or Liberal parties, then they should have the right to form their own political party.
But not so, according to the Labor Party. Time and time again, in past years, they have misused ASIO and the police to harass and intimidate Australian nationalists. Obviously, the leftists of the Labor Party only believe in freedom of speech if you agree with them.
The rule of a fair and equitable democracy demands that intelligence agencies should always be impartial when it comes to party politics. Indeed, Australian taxpayers expect this to be the case; after all, it is their money they are using. Australians do not expect, nor want, ASIO to be spying on decent hard-working Australians just to serve the political agenda of the Labor Party.
Any acts of intimidation made by ASIO against legitimate political parties should be exposed and opposed. We have nothing to hide, but Labor Party functionaries should not be able to use secret police for their own political purposes. Australians have not forgotten how the police were used against Pauline Hanson in what was clearly a politically-motivated persecution. We should never allow that to happen again.
