ONE Nation candidate Shan Ju Lin was taken by surprise when it was announced the party had disendorsed her for making anti-gay comments.

Ms Lin, who is a school teacher and a Harmony Day Festival committee president, was dumped after she posted an article to her official Facebook page about a gay couple who had been accused of sexually abusing foster children in their care but were found not guilty. The posts included commentary like “gays should be treated as patients” and “abnormal sex behaviour leads to abnormal crime”.

“This dis-endorsement (sic) decision has come as a complete surprise as One Nation has no policy to be adhered to on this issue except for that of a referendum on gay marriage whereby the community would have its say,” Lin said in a statement posted to Facebook.

“The speed of the dis-endorsement decision – without any chance to defend myself – has also been remarkable.”

One Nation founder Pauline Hanson said she would not stand by and allow people to the trash the party.

“I make no apologies for being tough on candidates,” Hanson said in a statement.

“These are not the views shared by One Nation, nor the views of fellow candidates and the general public.”

Hanson said once Lin was contacted about the issue, she responded: “Once gays realise they can put pressure on a candidate, they will start to target other One National candidates also.”

  1. This woman is truly scary,
    And for all our “Marxist” labeling queens on this site who shall remain nameless
    I heartily agree with Marx in that there is nothing worse than a class traitor and Shan CERTAINLY fits the bill. Shan will say and do anything to be endorsed.
    Shan has spoken disparagingly about Mainland Chinese as if they are vermin (well she would since she’s Taiwanese) and played on the ancient and well played bigotry of the “yellow peril”
    She is now engaged in vilifying gay people because it may have won her more support by accusing a gay foster couple of Pedophilia when the case was thrown out of court.
    And from the pit of her downfall she’s still playing the gay card on her facebook page to her groupie audience claiming that this fall from grace was so “sudden” and that the real culprit was James Ashby. In all of her rambling there is not one word of contrition or an “I got it wrong.”
    What I find most horrifying is that she is teaching and forming minds in secondary school!
    Cutting this train wreck loose is probably he smartest thing Pauline Hansen can do.

  2. Cracks are appearing in One Nation concrete – before it even sets! James Ashby is now the head person of Pauline Handsons One Nation Party a highly respected gay men. Gay men in droves are joining One Nation because of the way Australia has very fast become a Muslim Nation all because of centrelink endorcing polygamy!

    The One Nation party have our interest at heart. One Nation will protect us from Islamic State and Muslims – unlike the Greens, LNP and Labor have abandened us and forgotten that we exist – until the next election sometime in 2019!
