    Got my first election text today. Pity, it is legal.

    "Stop the foreign buy-up of land in Victoria - Vote 1 Pauline Hanson's One Nation - Australia should be owned by Australians
    bit.ly/qldhtv"

    I'm in NSW

    Re: Federal Election May 18

    As long as Bill Shorten doesn’t have a Michael-Daley-like moment in the final week then Labor is most likely to win

    My vote is unlikely make much difference because I’m in a safe Labor seat...

    Ok so, Pauline Hanson and her Party have:
    - Questioned the legitimacy of the Port Arthur Massacre and has suggested it may have been a government conspiracy
    - Claimed Australia will be "swamped by asians"
    - Asked the NRA for donations in exchange for watering down of Australian gun laws
    - Said vaccinations are a 'personal decision' (when they impact everyone)
    - Vilified people of Islamic backgrounds
    - Stated that Indigenous People receive 'too many privileges'

    And yet you still vote for her and her party?

    Front page of pamphlet:
    > "Stop purchasing of Australian/Indigenous land by the communist Chinese government! Our freedom is not for sale!"
    > avoids stating the obvious reality that Australian landowners are exercising their individual and economic freedoms in choosing whether to sell their land to Chinese or other foreign investors, and that the logical conclusion under UAP is to take those freedoms away from Australians

    So yeah, cringey enough to enter my recycling bin in under 30 seconds

    Re: Federal Election May 18

    I'm also Chinese, so it probably doesn't help that the othering of people seeking to purchase property sharing my ethnic background is the main selling point of the UAP

    Third text by Pauline Hanson’s party about three days ago was about banning expensive renewable subsidies. Too much spam!
