Lately a couple of National Party senators, Barnaby Joyce, and Ron Boswell, are coming across as some of the more sensible members of the coalition. The Nationals have modernized their thinking and shed dead wood agrarian socialists like Bob Katter, but like the Liberals and Labor, they still generally suck. The thing that stands out about these two is that they are not cowed by political correctness.
After the carbon tax protest in Canberra, the government smeared Tony Abbott as associating with extremists and racists owing to the presence of Pauline Hanson and the League of Rights among the crowd. The opposition generally failed in any counter attack.
Senator Boswell has pointed out the hypocrisy of the ALP by calling on them to ditch “their Green joint venture partners and attack the anti-Israel statements made by Senator elect Lee Rhiannon.”
He pointed out that Senator elect Lee Rhiannon has spoken at anti-Israel rallies and shared the stage with extremist Sheikh Taj el-Din Hilaly. Hilaly was the cleric who defended the actions of an Islamic pack rape gang by blaming the victims for dressing “immodestly.”

Even the founders of the party are becoming disillusioned at the rise of the hard line Bolshies in the party.
While Gillard and Greens leader Bob Brown are having a stage managed tiff to give the impression to the public that they are not the two sides to the same coin, it is clear that Labor is fairly comfortable working with a party that favours extremists.
Kowtowing to Islamic fascists and extremists is becoming more prevalent across the world, with news of a Finish priest faces being defrocked after describing one of the world’s most-wanted criminals as a ‘terrorist’ and faces being defrocked and charged after describing one of the world’s most-wanted criminals as a ‘terrorist’ and NBC claiming that burning a Koran is worse than burning a Bible because the Koran is regarded as the word of God it is good to see someone prepared to make a stand.
