In defense of Australia, she's just running for some small district somewhere (and will presumably lose). Palin was governor of Alaska and the Republican VP candidate.

Poor thing has declared she's pulling out the Australian elections.

Apparently news channel editing made her look bad

Ouch...

Having said that, I prefer this person's outright ignorance to the cynical exploitation of people like her by politicians who know better. She can be educated, whereas the politicians who pander to ignorant bigots know perfectly well what they're doing.

She is running for the Australian right wing party of one nation. Sadly the racist bigot vote is where the major parties are now vying for votes. They are falling over each other to treat refugees the most poorly. Australia has a terribly racist undercurrent.

As is universal when times are tough it's the minorities that get the finger pointed at them as the problem. it's never the mainstream. Anything but to acknowledge that the the problem is society in general, it's always someone else. And always a minority with less political clout.


Edit:
I do agree with banning halal however. There should not be exemption to the humane slaughter of animals on religious grounds.

What makes Sarah worst is that annoying voice combined with her stupidity. And least this women is only stupid.
