  • Christchurch attack: Outrage as senator blames immigration laws, victims

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

Australian Muslims have been warned to be extra vigilant following the "terrorist" shooting massacre of worshippers in New Zealand.

"As always, left-wing politicians and the media will rush to claim that the causes of today's shootings lie with gun laws or those who hold nationalist views, but this is all clichéd nonsense", said Anning.

Australian Senator Fraser Anning blames Muslims for the shootings at two mosques in New Zealand that left at least 49 dead in their places of worship.

Senator Anning went on to say that while Muslims may have been victims of attacks, he claimed they were also perpetrators. and blamed deaths on "the entire religion of Islam". In the Australian Parliament also.

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

A staffer for Senator Anning then separates the senator from the young man, while supporters of the senator tackle his attacker to the ground.
