Perth Christmas Shoppers Interrupted By Islamophobic Santa

Perth Christmas Shoppers Interrupted By Islamophobic Santa

Christmas shoppers were left shocked and appalled following a distasteful stunt by a right-wing political group at an upmarket Perth shopping centre on Tuesday morning.

Three women dressed in sheer burqas and a man in a full Santa Claus costume from the Australian Liberty Alliance political party marched through Floreat Forum singing Islamaphobic Christmas carols.
The ‘Taliban Tarts’ took over the Santa photo section at the shopping centre just before 10am, and left shoppers stunned.

A witness told WAtoday the display was inappropriate considering the number of children in the shopping centre given the school holidays.
“I was in the chemist adjacent to where they have the Father Christmas set-up,” she said.

“All of a sudden there was this outlandish singing to the tune of jingle bells.
“One of the ladies in the shop heard the word ‘jihad’, and repeated it. We didn’t know what was going on.
“It took me half-a-minute to get out of the shop and when I got out, these three women were dressed in black top-to-toe, and their outfits were quite sheer. You could see they had little black shorts on underneath.

“I thought it was terrible. They just took over the Father Christmas area and did this all of their own accord.

“They did their bit and everyone just stood with their mouths open. The whole thing lasted for around two to three minutes, and it wasn’t very amusing.”

The group’s lyrics were detailed in a flyer distributed at the centre entrance.

Centre management confirmed there had been a complaint regarding the ‘Taliban Tarts’, and it is unclear if this was a one-off display.

In its description, the political party indicated its manifesto:

“Our Australia stands for individual liberty, small government, Western values, social fairness and an integrated multi-ethnic society.

“Our Australia has no place for big government, racism, moral relativism, Islamisation, divisive multiculturalism or tolerance for the intolerant.

“Migrants do not dream of a new life in Australia because we are a socialist, Islamic or tribal society. Migrants come for the freedom, justice and prosperity only Western civilisation creates.”

However, the witness disagreed with the group’s impact at the Forum.
“It’s just not very clever, and it was very strange.”

Floreat Forum has been contacted for comment.
