The ALA is essentially the election wing of the ultra-conservative, self-stated “anti-Islam” entity known as the Q Society
Q SOCIETY of AUSTRALIA Inc
Q Society describes itself on a website as
"Australia's leading Islam-critical movement. Q Society supports an integrated multi-ethnic Australia and rejects racism, which the Oxford dictionary defines as: 'Belief in the superiority of a particular race.' Since Islam is not a race or ethnicity, being critical of Islam is not racist,".
The Q Society publishes Quadrant Magazine.
The first edition for 2019 has a cover which advertises the psyche of the Q Society. The feature article is about 'The inherent Racism of Identity Politics' followed by 'How the Left turned Free Speech into Hate Speech'.

This collection of readings and the website itself are tainted with broad sweeping hate speech targeted at anyone who is not male, white, heterosexual, or an empathetic female, of racism, sexism, homophobia, human climate change scepticism touted under the guise of 'freedom of speech' and ‘right wing’ white Australia migration policy fanaticism.
In particular, African "gangs", Muslims, Indigenous Australians, members of LGBTIQ+ identifying communities and the "looney left", especially the Australian Greens, are frequent flyer targets of Q Society and ALA derision.
However, Cori Bernadi of the Australian Conservatives who won the defection of an ALA woman to his party in 2018, would concur with now NSW ACP candidate Kirralie Smith that she is not right wing. On the contrary, she describes herself as a
“part of the silent majority of mainstream conservatives whose voices are now being heard”.

THE AUSTRALIAN LIBERTY ALLIANCE PARTY LAUNCH
The Australian Liberty Alliance (ALA) party was launched in Perth by Q Society hero, the far-right anti-immigration Dutch MP Geert Wilders, in October 2015.
The party, inspired by Mr Wilders in the Netherlands, wants to ban full-face coverings in public spaces and calls for a 10-year moratorium on resident visa applications by people from Islamic countries.
Mr Wilders has labelled Islam "retarded", called the Prophet Mohammed a paedophile and compared the Koran to Hitler's Mein Kampf.
ALA party director Andrew Horwood told reporters that Islam does not fit with Australian values.
"Our key concerns would be the lack of respect we have for other individuals in society, our education standards, the debt that we're leaving our children and we're highly concerned about the religion of Islam. Islam in its current form doesn't fit with Australian values and if we want to retain the gift of living in the greatest country in the world and passing it onto the next generation, we need to be able to have these honest and frank discussions. We're very happy for people to come to this country ... but we want people who are going to integrate and we want people who are going to respect our laws and our values"
