Australian Senator on Christchurch shootings: "real cause is Muslim fanatics", "blaming nationalists is cliched nonsense"

An Australian politician has sparked outrage after blaming immigration for a terror attack at two mosques in New Zealand.

While he said he was “utterly opposed to any form of violence”, independent Queensland senator Fraser Anning claimed “what it highlights is the growing fear within our community, both in Australia and New Zealand, of the increasing Muslim presence”.
“As always, left-wing politicians and the media will rush to claim that the causes of today’s shootings lie with gun laws or those who hold nationalist views but this is all clichéd nonsense.

“The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration programme which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place.”


Senator Anning also claimed that while Muslims “may have been the victims today, usually they are the perpetrators”.
"As we read in Matthew 26:52, "All they that take the sword, shall perish by the sword" and those who follow a violent religion that calls on them to murder us, cannot be too surprised when someone takes them at their word and responds in kind."

Does Australia have any type of recall mechanism?

If it’s cliche for the left to “blame gun laws”, then wouldn’t it also be cliche of the right to blame immigration? Are they not self aware, or is he just pandering to the sickos?

Wow, I really hope these comments will bite his ass back quickly. The kind of bite that forces him to step down.

Aren't the shooters white nationalists for starters??? He can't fucking blame muslims, this is insane.

"Senator Anning also claimed that while Muslims “may have been the victims today, usually they are the perpetrators”."

fuck this person. What degree of repercussions does Australia impose on public bigotry and lies? Censure?

This is why this senseless saga will never end.
This is merely a milestone, shit won't change.

We'll all be disgusted by this cunt but nothing will be done about it.
I think in my lifetime since 9/11 I've heard/read so many variants of this. It doesn't surprise me.
If Muslims(let alone Muslim children) can be shot and this is the response, then you're already gone.

I’ll copy and paste what I wrote on the other thread:

“To give some people outside of Australia context, Senator Fraser Anning is only senator because he was elected after a recount after the removal of another senator. He then left The One Nation party (a racist party) to be in the Katter party (a racist party) only to be expelled due to being too racist even for them. Now he’s an independent and will most definitely won’t be elected in 2 months time. He’s a massive troll and says awful shit for the publicity. He’s only in there because of 19 votes. 19! “

He knows exactly what he’s doing. He wanted to be the centre of attention. Also - he’s attending a rally with Blair Cottrell (who is a straight up nazi) tomorrow. I assure you he will make the news again with another vile statement.

What a vile man. Is it possible to vote this guy out in an election in the near future? His writing does not look like that of someone who would voluntarily step down.

That, unfortunately, makes perfect sense.

Should be a threadmark.

Thanks for the context. That explains a lot about how big a POS this Anning guy is likely to be.

The fact that their political system allows for transference of and then holding on to political power by an actual white supremacist and a neo nazi, bereft of any consequence truly highlights what blight upon rational discourse it is.

Great job Australians.

I have no words to describe this person, but I can try with the rage he has built in me. He is a fucking attention seeking shitcunt. Nothing but a parasite feeding off the anger of a bunch of selfish, scared and pathetic right-wing lunatics that should be investigated.

Some background on the guy:

- he does this for attention, he used the phrase "the final solution" in the senate to describe immigration claiming he didn't understand the context. He did.

- he got into the senate quite fortuitously. He comes from Queensland, the Florida of Australia, and wasn't initially elected. Each state elects 12 senators, usually 6 at a time but it was all twelve at the same time on this occasion meaning the bar was lower for entry.

He was third on the One Nation ticket, quite racist but not Anning levels of racist. There are two ways to vote, vote for a party or for candidates. So even though he only got 12 individual votes One Nation got enough party votes to elect two members, so Anning missed out initially. But the clown elected 2nd turned out to be a secret Brit and was chucked out so Anning as 3rd was appointed. He promptly left One Nation to sit as an independent, joined another party and was sacked from that one and is now an independent again.

- He is up for re-election in May and has absolutely zero chance of being re-elected. It will be 6 new senators and it likely be 2 from the right major party, 2 from the left major party, one green and one right wing nut nob. He's like 5th or 6th in the order of nutters, no hope.

I was always a proponent of borrowing right wing buzzwords and using it against them, since being conservative is largely about projecting. Over here we see nothing more than a textbook terrorist sympathizer.

Thanks for the info. Can he get kicked out of the senate anyway?
