GetUp exposes hyper-partisan hit-list

GetUp’s announcement today that it will campaign against a number of Liberal MP’s reveals once again its hyper-partisan nature.

Despite its constant claims of independence, GetUp has failed to include a single non-Liberal Parliamentarian on it’s so called hit list.

“The fact that GetUp’s so-called ‘leadership’ is only targeting Liberal Parliamentarians exposes their manipulative behaviour,” Senator Abetz said.

“If GetUp were genuinely issues-based, they would campaign on issues not personalities. But if personalities has become a focus one wonders why GetUp would target the dynamic young female Nicolle Flint and not Senator Fraser Anning? Get Up has form in this regard when they tried to put the Liberals last in Longman through their phone campaign, preferencing a convicted criminal who was a white supremacist ahead of the Liberals.”

“This is just the latest example of GetUp showing that they are nothing more than an extension of the Green-Labor campaign apparatus.”

“The fact they can’t bring themselves to campaign against a single non-Liberal MP shows that they aren’t independent.”

“GetUp’s hyper-partisan nature and shameless campaigning for left-wing candidates highlights again that any claim of independence is false,” Senator Abetz concluded.
