Australia’s Senate condemns lawmaker over New Zealand massacre comments

Australia’s Senate censured an independent lawmaker on Wednesday for his comments that New Zealand’s mosques shooting massacre was a result of letting ’Muslim fanatics’ migrate to the country. Sen. Fraser Anning has been widely condemned for his comments made in the aftermath of the incident. Anning’s comments gained international attention after footage of a teenager smashing an egg on his head.

Lack of debate and shaming people is one of the ingredients of violent extremism, but hey you guys know better I guess... being politicians and all.

Of course Australia's response is to censure and censor. There's no room for political debate there.

it's not like the terrorists manifesto specifically predicted this exact reaction and is banking on it to further his agenda or anything.

Pity we won't have the benefit of hindsight in 20 years because by then it will be too late. 3rd-world Islamists will have destroyed our nations. The insanity of the precious treatment that is afforded Islam is unfathomable.

You my not have to like him but at least quote him correctly.It's funny out the media and the lefty loons leave out "immigration of islamic extremist's" part out...but say he said Islamic immigration .. changes the context of everything. It's completely different. If you break down each paragraph of his statement he didn't say anything factually incorrect. he did have his little opinion regarding sharia law , but hold up ......various Hollywood celebrities are using the same language to describe Sharia as they are boycotting Brunei. No outrage there

Nothing can justify premeditated mass murder of innocent people, no matter what their religion is. If they were extremists, go to court, or start a public campaign to change laws, or debate them to expose their extremism, etc. The massacre actually caused huge over-reaction. Extremists rejoice.

Because it is better to shut down a hard conversation, then admit the facts. Australia has shut down at least 11 planned terrorists attacks in Melbourne alone. Not to mention the 'mentally ill man" who ran down 30 people in Melbourne, because God told him too (do I have to mention which God?) Then last year we had an attempted attack again where a man set his car on fire and had it run freely down a very busy intersection in the city (again Melbourne) But nothing to see here, the politicians know better. *On a totally unrelated note (extreme sarcasm)... Melbourne is Australia's version of California in regards to how left leaning it is politically speaking.

The political correctness insanity that is infecting the formerly civilized world is rampant in Australia. Any criticism or perceived opposition to Islam is labelled racism and xenophobia. Politicians and the media revel in any opportunity to virtue signal their encouragement for multiculturalism diversity and inclusion. The former conservative political party is now dominated by its leftist members, who in former times would have been expelled as unfit to belong.

And they got immigrants to tell the senate that it didn't represent Australia, because you know, they know EXACTLY what does. I hope this is as far as it goes. The senator is a moron and deserves the mocking he gets, but removing an elected representative is a big no no.

His statement was one hundred percent on point. This forcing Muslim etc bs down peoples necks does nothing to foster brotherhood. They want their Sharia laws and headscarves and refuse to assimilate. It's their job to assimilate. Otherwise, go the fuck home. It is not our job to alter our values because some donkey bombers move to town. It's absolutely insulting to the people of these countries that are told to just suck it up. No. If you want toive anywhere except your own ass backwards country, then you assimilate. End of discussion.

White supremacist retard *FOREIGNER* from Australia flies to NZ to commit a mass murder against "foreigners", and this idiot's response is, "The local citizens wouldn't have been murdered by the Australian foreigner if they hadn't let other foreigners visit their country first." The entire argument for the mentally handicapped side is "why isn't anyone talking about how the SERIAL KILLER is the REAL victim!"
