Australian politician sparks outrage when he blames ‘Muslim immigration’ for mosque attack

Ms Ardern was speaking at a press conference, two days after a gunman, allegedly an Australian man from Grafton, opened fire at two mosques, killing 50 people and injuring dozens more.

Fraser Anning, independent Senator for Queensland, tweeted: "Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?".

Although there is no evidence they also used eggs to convey their displeasure, many worldwide leaders had strongly criticized the senator's initial comments soon after news emerged of a heinous attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

The 69-year-old politician then turns around and smacks the boy in the face before taking a second swing at the teen.

"It is in everyone's best interest for Senator Anning to make no further statements on this matter".

The former Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull wrote: "Fraser Anning's comments today are contemptible".

Asked if she thought Anning was fit to be a Senator, she said that was up to Australians.

"I wonder if there will be as much outrage from the left wing when the next Muslim terrorist attack occurs?"

"He does not represent Australia".

New Zealand terror attack
As Ardern revealed deatails about the suspect's weapons and his background, she promised changes to the country's gun laws. The courtroom was closed to the public because of the heightened security risk.

Without dissent, Canberra's opposition Labor party unilaterally stood with Morrison's conservative coalition government in speedily passing a motion of censure against Anning.

"These comments are appalling and they're ugly and they have no place in Australia".

A change.org petition calling for Mr Anning's expulsion from parliament has amassed about 250,000 signatures.

"When people are getting attacked in their own ...", he said as the youth cracked the raw egg on the senator's head.

Senator Fraser Anning has been egged in Melbourne which saw protestors and supporters of the controversial identity clash in wild scenes. He has been criticized by many for his Anti-Islamic remarks.

He also said Twitter had banned him from posting there for breaching the platform's community standards.

Following the backlash, Senator Anning has continued to defend his comments.

The Queensland senator has previously faced criticism for proposing legislation that would have restricted non-European immigration and banned Muslim migrants and for referencing Nazi policy by touting a "final solution to the immigration problem". "Those who come here need to assimilate and integrate", he said.
