One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson has launched a cartoon series depicting herself as a young teacher.
The first episode of the odd 20-show series is the right-wing politician’s attempt to capture voters in the 19-35 year old demographic.
Senator Hanson — who voices herself — is the only character presented in a flattering light. She is depicted as a glamorous young schoolteacher in a short black dress.
Her class includes a beetroot-headed Barnaby Joyce, a tardy Hawaiian shirt-wearing Scott Morrison, and Craig Kelly. Mr Kelly is told off for texting everyone in class during roll-call, a reference to his use of a spam message service to bombard voters with unsolicited United Australia Party campaigning.
Peter Dutton is portrayed as Harry Potter villain Voldemort while Labor leader Anthony Albanese dodges knives from shadow women’s minister Tanya Plibersek and former ALP leader Bill Shorten.
The cartoon mocks Greens Senator Adam Bandt for paying respect to the elders of the Aboriginal land the school is built on.
Treasurer Josh Frydenberg, Bob Katter and Matt Canavan also make appearances. Hanson’s school teacher character says that former Attorney General Christian Porter is “suspended.” Viewers can also expect appearances from politicians Matt Canavan, George Christensen, and Jacqui Lambie, and union boss John Sekta
The two-minute episodes will appear on Facebook, TikTok, Instagram and Twitter.
One Nation supports a travel ban to so-called “extremist” countries, believes that there is “insufficient evidence” for global warming, and wants to slash immigration.
