Lin has defended Pauline Hanson's comments of being Australia "being swamped by Asians"
One Nation’s first Asian candidate Shan Ju Lin has said “good Asians” will vote for the party at the next Queensland election.
The Taiwan-born Australian candidate said party leader Pauline Hanson was right to warn Australians about their country being “swamped by Asians” 20 years ago.
Lin moved to Australia in 1991 to complete her Masters degree in teaching at Queensland University of Technology.
Speaking to ABC, Lin said praised Hanson, “she sees the problem ahead of everybody, including you and me. Everything she said is happening now.”
Lin backed Hanson’s controversial comments, including the claim that Asians “form ghettos and do not assimilate”.
“For European people it’s very difficult to distinguish Chinese or Korean or Japanese, and I can understand why she said it,” Ms Lin told the ABC.
Lin claims on her Facebook page to have “devoted her life to helping, teaching and nurturing others,” and describes herself as “an Australian who has a unique and caring contribution to make to Bundamba, Queensland and contemporary Australian life.”
One of her listed priorities is the “prevention of the sale of iconic assets to foreigners”.
The Chinese mother has also openly criticised the Chinese government, “Australians believe in a fair go. The ruling communist party of China doesn’t bother with fair.”
“They (the Chinese government) don’t have our interests at heart. Neither do they practice the freedoms I mentioned earlier.
“Say the wrong thing and you can literally have your tongue cut out. End up in jail, and you’re automatically on the organ donor list … as the donor.”
“The Chinese are very good at attracting and setting up people, but they are the biggest scammers in the world.”
