Liberal MP spruiks Coalition on Australian Tea Party page

Liberal MP Andrew Laming has used the right-wing Australian Tea Party’s Facebook page, which features comments encouraging violence against US President Barack Obama during his tour next month, to gather feedback and promote the Coalition.

The Australian Tea Party Facebook page contains anti-Gillard, anti-Obama and anti-Left rhetoric — one poster said: Burn in hell left wingers.

Posts on the page promise a warm Tea-Party welcome when President Obama visits Australia in mid-November but protest details are being kept secret.

Comments on the page include: I encourage you to throw things at obama when he steps off the plane in australia… bottles… rocks… fruit… veggies whatever you can find [sic]

Another says please take him on safari for salt water crocodiles while several others encourage the President and Julia Gillard to go on a walkabout in the desert and never come back — via
