Australian senator egged after racist comments

Christchurch shooting: Sajid Javid slams Australian Senator Fraser Anning over comments

A staffer for Mr Anning then separates the senator from the young man, while supporters of the senator tackle the teenager to the ground.

"Let us be clear, while Muslims may have been the victims today, they are usually the perpetrators", Anning wrote.

An Australian senator who sparked outrage for blaming the New Zealand mosque shootings on Muslim immigration has been hit on the head with a raw egg.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced the Government will censure Queensland senator Fraser Anning over his comments about the mosque shootings in New Zealand.

"Today's shootings in Christchurch highlight the growing fears within our community both in Australia and New Zealand over the increasing Muslim presence".

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

At a time for grieving and reflection, this Australian senator @fraser_anning fans the flames of violence & extremism.

Anning's entire persona was born of Islamophobia, and almost every tweet and speech he makes contains anti-Muslim tirades.

The young man was watching Senator Anning from a distance, when he started filming with his mobile phone and smashed the egg on the senator's head.

The incident came on the back of the Queensland senator supposed condemnation of the Christchurch mosque attacks in which 50 people were killed. He entered the legislature as a member of the far-right nationalist Pauline Hanson's One Nation party but switched parties to Katter's Australian Party (KAP) shortly after being sworn in. This is an example of why it won't work, in this case Pauline has chosen to run a Muslim candidate Emma Eros in the NSW election.

"I hope there is a real question as to his position as a federal parliamentarian given the privileges and the responsibilities which are attached to that".

Even that message of his had brought considerable backlash from Twitteratis who said it was in fact he who needed to be out of the parliament.
