Labor takes action on fake Wechat posts
Labor is taking action over fake posts and doctored accounts on Chinese social media platform WeChat spreading misinformation about its federal election campaign.
The posts target Labor policy on issues such as Safe Schools, taxes, asylum seekers and the economy.
Some of the anti-Labor material can be traced back to Liberal Party members, The Sydney Morning Herald reported today.
One of the WeChat posts includes a tweet purporting to be from Labor leader Bill Shorten saying: "Immigration of people from the Middle East is the future Australia needs".
Both Mr Shorten and Prime Minister Scott Morrison have WeChat accounts. The platform has become an important tool for parties seeking to woo electorates with high numbers of Chinese-Australian voters.
Labor has written to WeChat parent company Tencent about its concerns about "malicious and misleading content" and "fake news".
The easiest way to think of it is like this : In theory, the Liberal Party is more like Classic Liberalism. They're for economic freedom and civil liberties. They're also highly fiscally conservative as well.Why do the aussies call their conservatives liberals? What do you call your liberals? Is it just part of everything in australia needing to be backward on account of the hemisphere?
“The 24-year-old woman was arrested and taken to the Albury police station. During a search of the woman, police located cannabis.”And today in this bastion of democracy, our PM has had eggs thrown at him by this chick.
You'd be surprised just how far left the Greens are. They are virtually bordering being the LGBT/Socialist Alliance policywise, both economically and socially. In fact according to some sources, all of the parties have continued drifting left over the past few decades.
Wow thats almost exactly what I got.
