Not in our name: Aus government rep sent to rally of violent, racist EFF

February 18, 2019

The Morrison Government should explain why a representative was sent to the election campaign launch of the radical Economic Freedom Fighters party in South Africa this month, according to the Conservative Party's Queensland Senate candidate Lyle Shelton.

“Singing ‘kill the Boer’ and saying that whites won’t be slaughtered ‘for now’ should be sounding alarm bells in Canberra about EFF leader Julius Malema, not resulting in the reward of legitimisation by our government,” Mr Shelton said.

“Australian High Commissioner Adam McCarthy needs to explain why he legitimised the pro-violence, anti-property rights party in a pictured he tweeted of one of his staff embracing an EFF official," he continued.

“This is a party that is putting South Africa on the path to Zimbabwe-like farm evictions at the hands of murderous thugs. The EFF has led the South African Parliament into supporting the taking of non-black farmers’ lands without compensation. Australia should be protesting these moves like it did in Zimbabwe, not legitimising them by sending diplomats to their rallies,” Mr Shelton said.

Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi has told Paul Murray Live on Sky News he's not surprised the international community isn't up in arms about the whites' dispossession in South Africa.
