Over the weekend, The Age published this photograph from the demonstrations at Melton.
This man is one of a number of the members of the anti-Islamic group Reclaim Australia who attended the demonstration wearing a mask to hide his identity.
In using the Australian flag as his mask, he wishes to give the impression that the views of his organisation are somehow representative of the views of the people who recognise the national flag, namely all Australians.
He’s wrong to wear the flag in this context.
Sometimes wearing the Australian flag on public works.
And he is most certainly wrong to delude himself that his views represent those of the majority of Australians.
