A right wing conservative politician from Queensland. Prior to his involvement in politics, Dickson was a business owner, operating motels, a vineyard and even his own horse drawn carriage service ffs. He entered into politics in 2000 after being elected as a councillor within the Shire of Maroochy, serving as chair of town planning.
Dickson decided to enter into state politics within the Liberal Party, getting elected to the seat of Kawana in 2006, which he held until 2009. The same year he was elected to the seat of Buderim. Dickson was a prominent advocate for the merging of the Liberal and the National party’s to form a stronger conservative party. He went on to become a key member of the Liberal National Party, serving as Minister for Parks, Recreation and Sports under Queensland premier Campbell Newman.
Dickson defected from the LNP in early 2017, opposing their positions on a number of issues, namely their opposition to medicinal marijuana. He has since joined the far right One Nation Party, taking with him his Buderim seat and allegedly 52 internal LNP documents.
A right wing politician from Brisbane. Lin migrated from Taiwan over two decades ago, coming from a staunchly anti communist family and background. Upon her arrival Lin worked as a schoolteacher in Brisbane. Lin is also the president of the World Harmony Society, a Brisbane based Chinese community run organisation that organises festivals with the hope of uniting different peoples & culture. That doesn’t sound so bad at all.
Aside from her deep-rooted community building credentials, Lin has been active for a period within Falun Gong (a spiritualist cult organisation formed by wealthy Chinese dissidents) being a prominent contributor to and local coordinator of their newspaper Epoch Times. Falun Gong “teach” its supporters the concept of segregated paradises, divided by race. Those who are of mixed race or happen to be queer are abominations and not worthy to enter into paradise.
Lin has used her World Harmony Society to spread the crackpot conspiracy theories of Falun Gong. On the organisations website, Falun Gong’s wacky propaganda can be found speaking of government organ harvesting, politically motivated anti communist rhetoric and rejections of modern medicine and science. Their propaganda can also be found at World Harmony Society festivals.
Lin’s right wing political views led her to become active in politics, standing on behalf of the Katter’s Australia Party in the 2016 election. It seems she has found a new political base now. The One Nation Party. Despite the ONP being a feverently anti Asian party since its conception, Lin believes the original target was soley the Chinese, or as she says “the bad Asians”. Despite her new leader Pauline Hanson claiming the country was being “swamped by Asians” Lin seems convinced she has found a new home in the ONP. I think that this president of a self-proclaimed pro multicultural organisation turned anti multicultural political firebrand is a little confused.
Lin was dropped from the ONP within weeks of her appointment as their candidate for Bundamba. She was sacked on account of homophobic remarks made via twitter, claiming that LGBTIQ people should be treated as “patients” and likened being queer with criminal behaviour. Geez, the ONP’s first and only Asian candidate didn’t last very long.
A Perth based far right politician. Bezuidenhout was born in South Africa under Apartheid, working as a freelance television presenter. She was noted for approaching people on camera and asking them explicit sexual questions. Today, Bezuindenhout one in a long line of loons taken into the fold of the One Nation Party.
Bezuidenhout raised a few eyebrows it got out that she had started a petition a while back calling for the formation of a Afrikaner state outside South Africa and a return to racial segregation. She has also called for the execution of alleged terrorists and sex offenders.
A far right politician from Perth. Eldridge worked as a real estate agent prior to politics. He joined the nationalist One Nation Party, being selected as one of their candidates for the upper house in WA 2017 election. He was also to receive preferences from the Liberal Party.
In a very familiar story, Eldridge was dropped as an ONP candidate for a series of offensive comments insulting Muslims, 1st nations peoples and queers calling for a war with Muslims.
A far right politician from Western Australia. Bartkowski is a member of the One Nation Party, being selected as an Upper House candidate in the South West of Australia. Problem is, Cammy is a bit of a naughty boy. His Facebook page was discovered to be flooded with sleazy pornographic pages containing lude photographs of teenage girls among other things relating to the mans sick fetishes.

A far right politician from Queensland. Semple is a member of the right wing populist party One Nation, being selected as a potential candidate. His profile position within the party was cut short after he was stood down for posting inappropriate tweets that were received as misogynistic and homophobic. Seems like the new ONP isn’t very different from the old one.
