"Peaceful and classy" protestors gather in the rain at Martin Place on Saturday in Sydney to protest the alleged 'Isalmisation' of Australia.

Saturday saw heated exchanges at protests around the country with the Reclaim Australia group facing off against supporters of multiculturalism, as they rallied against the terrifying threat of what they call “fundamental Islam”.

The #ReclaimAustralia movement hosted rallies in all capital cities on Saturday, with tens of thousands showing up Australia-wide – in support of the anti-halal, anti-sharia, anti-burka movement.

However, the largest Reclaim Australia rally was held in the last place most would have expected. On the wrong day.

Almost matching the numbers of all capital cities combined, the Diamantina Shire in far-west Queensland, hosted up to 10,000 concerned residents in the streets of one of their busiest towns yesterday morning.

“This isn’t about us and them!”

Shouted local politician and notorious anti-Halal protester, Councillor Keith Carton.

“IT’S ABOUT US!”

The newly-elected mayor was received well by the roaring ten thousand strong crowd, decked out in Eureka Stockade-themed Australiana.

“These BASTARDS have been trying to change our culture ever since they f**king landed here!”

The Betoota mayor claims that the fact his town had accidentally hosted their rally on the wrong day was irrelevant to the cause.

“These big city folk are worried about what the immigrants WILL do. We are worried have what they have ALREADY done”

“They have been here since the early days. Since the 1800’s our camel trade has been dominated by the spongeing Afghan cameleers! My grandaddy always told me this would be a problem and he was right!

The local store in Betoota has been 100% Halal certified ever since it was taken over by new “Muslim” ownership in 1912. Anti-Muslim sentiment was furthered when the town was pressured into building a mosque ten years later, to cater for the six Muslim families in town.

“They have been trying to change our culture for nearly 200 years! Enough is enough!”

Outback Australia has been a focal point for the anti-Muslim agenda for quite some town now. With Mosque attacks happening all over the Northern Territory and far-west Queensland.

However, local authorities have reportedly pulled back on combating the deeply engrained discrimination of Muslim citizens, after local politicians told them to “give it a rest”

“These bloody mussies (Muslims) have even had one of our most iconic trains named after them. If that isn’t a sign of the Muslim agenda… I don’t know what is”

“They’ve been here since the early 1800’s and we’ve been telling them to go home ever since!”
