:This article is about the Protectionist Party of 1889-1909. For the Swedish political Party, see Protectionist Party (Sweden).The Protectionist Party was an Australian political party, formally organised from 1889 until 1909, with policies centred on protectionism. It argued that Australia needed protective tariffs to allow Australian industry to grow and provide employment. It had its greatest strength in Victoria and in the rural areas of New South Wales. Its most prominent leaders were Sir Edmund Barton and Alfred Deakin, who were the first and second prime ministers of Australia.

In the main, the Protectionists formed government with the support of the Labor Party, on the understanding that they would implement social reforms desired by Labor. Labor's program, however, was frequently too radical for the Protectionists, and compromises had to be made. Several changes of minority governments occurred.

The Protectionist vote had declined considerably by the 1906 federal election, and with Labor already having formed a minority government in 1904 under Chris Watson, Labor had formed another in 1908 under Andrew Fisher. A scandalised establishment pressured the two non-Labor parties to form an anti-socialist alliance, which saw Deakin and Free Trade leader Joseph Cook believe a merger was needed to counter Labor's increasing electoral dominance. The Protectionist Party ended up splitting, with the more liberal Protectionists, such as Isaac Isaacs and H. B. Higgins, supporting Labor while Deakin and his supporters merged with the Anti-Socialist Party (formerly Free Trade Party) to become the Commonwealth Liberal Party, who would form another minority government, before Fisher and Labor achieved Australia's first federal majority government, and the first Senate majority, at the 1910 election.

In 2007, a new political party was set up under the same name.

It's time to stop the failed experiment of multiculturalism and political correctness. We need to start learning from the mistakes that Europe has made into accepting mass immigration and the so called 'diversity.' The Australian Protectionist Party is calling out for a national movement of men and women who are willing to take a stand for our country's independence, freedom, preservation of our nation and people - our future. Are YOU willing to take a stand for the future of this nation?? It's time to win back Australia!

See how they run! The elites clearly live in some parallel universe where the lion really does lay down with the lamb. Note to Tanya, the Annangrove saga continues with Muslims buying land near the prayer hall - "Abas Aly says that he's now dealing with another problem that's emerged. He says there are rumours circulating that a ten acre block of land recently purchased has been earmarked for an Islamic school. ABAS ALY: Firstly the land has not been bought by the centre, it's a personal purchase. The second thing is it's not for a school - and they know that very well, again this is the stories that get created by a handful of people. If we did, hypothetically decide to build something there, again if we met the planning rules it shouldn't be a problem." - So my statement in this program about "planning creep" was 100% correct.

A brief video demostrating a racist attack on Australians by a member of the Socialist Alliance. They believe that it is not racial vilification when the victim and the abuser are of the same race, however the anti-vilification laws have no such provision. Racial vilification is based around the principle that attacking somebody on the basis of their race is illegal regardless of the racial descent of the abuser.
