Worried your laptop, coffee mug, or first-born child looks too pro-multicultural? Have we got a deal for you!
Reclaim Australia, the group behind anti-Islamic rallies held around Australia this year, have launched their very own merchandise line in an effort to fundraise for their ongoing definitely-not-racially-motivated shenanigans.
The group is offering a range of items for sale via their online store, all branded with the Reclaim Australia Rally logo.
Those who feel their southern cross tattoo or ‘fuck off we’re full’ bumper sticker isn’t getting the message across clearly enough can update their nationalist aesthetic by purchasing Reclaim shirts, iPhone cases, travel mugs, drawstring bags, and even hardcover journals.
The group was careful to note on its Facebook page that their clothing line includes children’s sizes.
In a devastating challenge to a domain usually dominated by the Australian left, they’re also offering a Reclaim branded tote bag.
And for just $30 you’ll be able to alert all your work colleagues, university chums, or schoolmates to your deep-seated discomfort with the halal certification process by simply flicking open your laptop.
“Each rally costs $1000’s with PA etc… we have so far paid out of our own pocket happily however there is coming a time that we can’t afford to keep doing that,” Reclaim said on its Facebook page.
“No one is telling people they have to purchase however those that do will ensure our rallies and the people continue to have a voice.”
No sooner had Reclaim alerted its followers to the existence of the store, the group had received a question about the nationality of the people producing the merchandise.
In July, Reclaim held its second round of rallies, provoking a strong response from anti-racist protesters.
Nationals MP George Christensen added his voice to the event.
“We will not sit idly by and watch the Australian culture and the Australian lifestyle that we love and that is envied around the world be surrendered and handed over to those who hate us for who we are and what we stand for,” he told a crowd at Mackay.
At the time, Labor questioned why then Prime Minister Tony Abbott had allowed Christensen to attend the event but barred his ministry appearing on the ABC’s talk show Q&A.
Those on the right have been feeling a little sore of late, with many associated with Australia’s anti-Islamic current voicing their dismay at the removal of Abbott as PM earlier this month.
Perhaps the gift of a Reclaim Australia branded ‘studio pouch’ will help cheer them up.
