Senator Who Blamed Muslims For New Zealand Shootings Punches Teen After Egging

Senator Who Blamed Muslims For New Zealand Shootings Punches Teen After Egging

The attention seeking Fraser Anning, who is a far-right independent senator was being interviewed over his comments when a teenage boy appeared to crack an egg on the back of his head.

Anning, in footage that went viral, was seen punching the boy in the face and then taking another swing before the two were separated.

Five fully grown men held the boy down on the floor until police arrived.

A spokesperson from Victoria Police told ABC a 17-year-old was arrested but was later released pending further investigation.

Mr Morrison today announced the Coalition and Labor would pass a motion censuring Senator Anning for the statement when Parliament returns next month.

The Queensland senator drew global condemnation for his efforts to blame the attack that killed 49 Muslim worshippers on immigration. The teen stood calmly behind Fraser before he started up his cellphone camera and set on the senator.

Anning sparked outrage following the terror attack after blaming the event on both Muslims, who were the victims, and New Zealand immigrants.

The 43-year-old wasa sma allegedly confronted outside his Nimbin home on Wednesday morning by a man armed with a bow and arrow. Cops say the armed male fired the arrow at the man, piercing his smartphone, which caused the device to hit him in the chin.

Morrison called his comments "disgusting" and that they have "no place in Australia". "And he should be, frankly, ashamed of himself".

Twitter has confirmed that an account matching the suspect's name has been deleted, and numerous media outlets report that the account had tweeted a white nationalist manifesto in the moments before the attack.

"When one looks at his statement, it may as well have been an extract from the manifesto of the person that perpetrated these heinous crimes, this act of terrorism in Christchurch", Rauf said.

Singapore's Home Affairs and Law Minister K. Shanmugam said that the comments by senator Fraser Anning described Islam as a violent, fascist religion promoting savage beliefs.

A number of other politicians also hit out at Anning for his disgusting remarks.

In the letter, on Australian parliamentary letterhead, he added that the "real cause" of the shooting had been immigration programmes that "allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place".

This is an official press release from an elected senator in Australia.
