Scott Morrison’s captain’s pick for the federal seat of Warringah surfaced briefly for a media-free invite-only Politics at the Pub event Friday night. However, while she generally stays secluded from public view, another deleted Tweet emerged showing Katherine Deves playing the Nazi card again.

Remember when we couldn’t escape candidates for federal office during an election campaign? They’d be everywhere — smiling at television cameras in hi-vis vests as they pretended to know how to hold a shovel. Or shuffling along with John Howard on his morning run. Maybe even popping into church with Kevin Rudd.

But not Katherine Deves.

The single-issue candidate for Warringah has stayed secluded and allowed her ‘historic’ social media posts to speak for her.

Politics at the Pub

However, she popped out on Friday night for a Politics at the Pub event at the Forestville RSL in Northern Sydney with Liberal Member for Mackellar, Jason Falinski. But, unlike most Politics at the Pub events, this one was closed to the media and invite-only.

A venue staff member told the media, “They’re all for freedom of speech, just as long as it’s Liberal party speech.”

Playing the Nazi card

Meanwhile, yet another of the candidate’s ‘historic’ tweets emerged. Katherine Deves deleted her entire social media history days before Scott Morrison made her his captain’s pick, but the internet never forgets.

In one of her deleted tweets, she targetted England’s Pink News, again playing the Nazi card.

“Pink News?

“Bahahaha. That’s just a mouthpiece for misogynists and the Rainbow Reich.”

Maybe she’ll apologise again. Third time’s the charm, they say.

Katherine Deves did make a quick statement to waiting media before the off-limits Politics at the Pub event.

“I have fought for women and children and now I’m fighting for Warringah. Thank you for coming along tonight. I’m looking forward to campaigning hard over the next four weeks and on the issues that affect the people in the room.”
