Liberal candidate dumped for comments about Muslims

A Liberal candidate will be disendorsed by the party over an online rant that attacked Muslims as people of «bad character» who were plotting to kill and enslave other Australians.

Jeremy Hearn, the Liberal candidate in the Labor-held Melbourne seat of Isaacs, has apologised for the comments, in which he argued Muslims should be prevented from getting Australian citizenship because they were trying to replace Australia’s system of government with Islamic sharia law.

The remarks, made last year in the comments section of Quadrant magazine’s website and unearthed by the Herald Sun, have been rapidly condemned by Liberal Party figures who said the views have no place in their party.

After the comments were reported, Mr Hearn apologised «unreservedly» and said the sentiments were «entirely wrong».
