A controversial political commentator heading for Australia says her ideas “will shock people”. Canadian Lauren Southern will tour Australia and New Zealand starting next month on a speaking tour that stops at Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Auckland. Southern, who previously worked for Rebel Media — the same media organisation former Labor leader Mark Latham aligned himself with — calls herself an “independent journalist”. She is known as one of the torchbearers for the alt-right movement in her country and will be touring with countryman Stefan Molyneux. In a video posted on Twitter, she said she was trying to prove Islam to be a homophobic religion by provoking British Muslims with signs that overlaid Islamic symbols with LGBT pride flags.
