‘Alt-Right’ YouTube Star Banned From Australia

An “alt-right” Canadian YouTube star popular with white nationalists has been banned from entering Australia, the progressive news site ThinkProgress reported.

Australian media had discovered that the Australian Visa Bureau had declined Southern’s application for an Electronic Travel Authority.

Southern lamented the ban on Twitter, writing that she is “still attempting to fight” for entry.

Southern was banned from the United Kingdom in March, with the government’s Home Office claiming that Southern’s presence was not “not conducive to the public good.”

Southern is known for spreading anti-Islam rhetoric and waxing about the “victim[s] of multiculturalism.”
