MP wants Anning to meet Qld muslims

  • Nazi phrase ‘final solution’ used by Katter MP Fraser Anning in ‘racist’ speech

The Katter's Australian Party senator has been widely criticised after calling for immigration policies favouring "European Christian" values and banning Muslims.

"The final solution to the immigration problem of course is a popular vote", he added.

The senator, a former member of Pauline Hanson's anti-Islam One Nation Party, called for a return to the White Australia Policy - which restricted non-European immigrants from 1901 until the 1960s.

Australian Senator Fraser Anning on Wednesday compared Muslims with "poisonous jelly beans", following his "racist" maiden speech in the Senate seeking immigration restrictions based on race.

"So why would anyone want to bring more of them here?"

Many compared the speech to one given in 1996 by One Nation leader Pauline Hanson in which she declared Australia was "in danger of being swamped by Asians".

Critics immediately latched onto Anning's use of the term "final solution", a phrase used by the Nazi regime to refer to the extermination policy of Jews during the Holocaust.

Around 1942, the Nazi leadership established a plan called "The Final Solution to the Jewish Question", which led to the mass genocide of Jewish people in occupied Europe.

Mr Perrett also poured scorn on Mr Anning's suggestion his use of the term "final solution" regarding Australian immigration had been misinterpreted and was not a reference to the Nazi mass killing of Jews. "I want to apologise to the Senate and the Australian people that after the vomitous poison last night I then, stupidly, and unthinkingly, and I did think about it, I followed Senate protocol and I should have lined up here and shook this unworthy man's hand", a clearly emotional Hinch said.

Spotlighted in this movement is once again the Guardians' central players, who collaborated on a message of support for their director and screenwriter.

In light of the reaction to his speech, Anning has maintained his hardline and refused to apologise for his comments.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten also branded Senator Anning's speech "racist" and described it as "repugnant and disgraceful".

Other senators said they regretted shaking Senator Anning's hand following his first speech, as is general protocol.

"Absolutely 1000 percent I support everything he said".

Environment and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg, who is Jewish and who lost relatives in the Holocaust, called Anning's speech "hurtful, divisive and unacceptable".

"I believe that the reasons for ending all further Muslim immigration are both compelling and self-evident", Anning, a member of the right-wing Katter's Australian Party (KAP), told a mostly empty hall of lawmakers.

In his maiden speech in Parliament yesterday, Anning alleged that Muslims were responsible for acts of terror and crime and were dependant on welfare.

"I always treat my fellow senators with respect, even if they hold views that I find offensive and are vastly different to mine", Senator McKenzie told Fairfax Media.

She said: "We have called for people coming here to give their undivided loyalty to this country - that you be Australian and proud of this country and abide by the laws". Anning has since said he did not know the history of the phrase.
