Victim-blaming right-wing senator who ended up with egg on his face to be censured
The Australian Senator from Queensland who, unbelievably, blamed the victims of the Christchurch shooting for their own deaths, stating “Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?” and whose family fortune was founded by stealing land from Australian Aboriginals and, at times, kidnap and forced labor of the same will be censured by the government and opposition as well as being investigated for punching the much smaller minor who egged him on says Australian Prime Minister Scott Morris.
Morris promised “the full force of the law” would be brought to bear against the pugilistic Senator who stepped way down in weight class when striking the child who did this….
Here's a GIF of Fraser Anning getting egged 😂 https://t.co/waPeUCtpmG— Mustafa (@Mustafa)1552714950.0
In related news the punchy Senator was treated to a classic Australian dressing down when spotted at the departing gate of an airport later in the day.
(If you disapprove of the use of triggering Anglo-Saxon descriptors do not play.)
As much as Anning deserved those two confrontations perhaps the most severe spanking came from opposition leader Bill shorten who said:
“the Christchurch event “hasn’t happened in isolation”, blaming “extreme-right politicians in Australia” and “keyboard warriors who hide behind the internet” for fomenting hatred.
“I say to those who perpetuate extreme rightwing hatred … You, by your hate speech, have created a swampland of hatred,” he told reporters in Melbourne.
“You cannot disown what crawls out of your swamp.”
Would you ever consider moving to the U.S. and running for office Mr. Shorten?
We could use your moral clarity over here.
