Pranksters Redirected Pauline Hanson's Unguarded Website To The Refugee Council’s Page

Pranksters Redirected Pauline Hanson's Unguarded Website To The Refugee Council’s Page

Pauline Hanson is likely to get a rude shock this morning with the news that some cheeky pranksters have taken control of the Senator's website and redirected traffic to the Refugee Council of Australia.

With Hanson's domain about to expire, some quick-acting individuals have utilised the opportunity to seize the URK and to ironically redirect to the website for the refugee advocacy group.

Upon noticing the change, social media users couldn't get enough of the move.

One Twitter user wrote: "Pauline Hanson is an Australian politician who incited racist policies and hateful rhetoric against minorities and the marginalised. Her former website now redirects to an asylum seeker charity. Be the good you want to see in the world. What a triumph!"

Another added: "Oh, this is brilliant. Pauline Hanson's domain name expired and some legend re-purposed it."

Refugees have long been a target for Pauline Hanson, who in the past has pushed for a halt on people immigrating to Australia.

Under the heading 'Asylum Seekers' on the One Nation website, it reads: "It has been reported that over 70 refugees, now on Nauru, and ineligible to come to Australia have rejected offers of resettlement in the United States on the basis that the welfare benefits are inadequate.

"The suggestion that refugees can pick and choose the country of resettlement, based on the welfare benefits on offer, is rejected.

"We believe genuine refugees would readily accept resettlement in the United States or any safe country, and that those who reject that offer are economic migrants and not in need of ongoing economic support."

Pauline Hanson Declares Welfare Recipients Have 'Lost The Right' To Spend Money On What They Want

published at3 months ago

The RCOA is a non-profit national umbrella body for refugees and people seeking asylum and those who support them, with 200 organisational and over 1,000 individual members.

Their website says: "You can help us keep fighting for refugees and people seeking asylum by becoming a member, donating, volunteering or taking part in our campaigns."

The cheeky move comes around a month after Hanson made headlines for an explosive speech where she took aim at welfare recipients.

The outspoken Senator said they had 'lost their rights' on how they choose to spend the money.

The One Nation leader spoke to the Senate in support of implementing a cashless debit card that would hold 80 per cent of welfare payments. The idea behind the card was to stop the purchase of drugs, alcohol and pornography.

In arguing the case for the card, Hanson unleashed a tirade upon welfare recipients: "That's what this card is about. It's not about a person's rights.

"When you go onto this card, you basically lose your rights as well. If you go on a welfare system, you've lost your rights."

She continued: "There have been increased purchases of baby items, food, clothing, shoes, toys and other goods for children.

"That's why they are quite happy to be on the card. They can say: 'I can't give you money. I haven't got it.' Humbugging is in these communities. They know that family members are taking money from them."
