Australian's Parliament speech on 'final solution' condemned

Fraser Anning and Bob Katter

In his speech, Senator Anning called for an end to Muslim immigration and a program that favours "European Christian" values.

The Final Solution was the Nazi plan for the extermination of the Jews during World War II.

The Australian politician also doubled down on his call for a national vote that would ban all Muslims from entering the country in the interview.

Libertarian independent David Leyonhjelm said he did not agree with key aspects of the speech but defended Senator Anning's reference to a "final solution", describing the blowback as a "ridiculous over-reaction to a term which has multiple meanings". It was a line so inflammatory that even Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull weighed in, calling it "a shocking insult to the memory" of those killed by the Nazis.

"His speech was absolutely magnificent and it's everything that this country should be doing".

Mr Katter said he genuinely believed Mr Anning had no idea of the historical context of the term.

Mr Anning, a northern Queensland hotelier, called for a nationwide vote to decide whether Australians wanted "wholesale non-English speaking immigrants from the third world".

Hanson said she stood by her views but accepted Australia was "a multiracial society" and she had always advocated that "you do not have to be white to be Australian".

"Fraser is dead right - we do not want people coming in from the Middle East or North Africa unless they're the persecuted minorities".

"It was never meant to denigrate the Jewish community, it is two words and if that offends anyone unfortunately that is the way it has to be".

Derryn Hinch, an opposition MP, called Anning "Pauline Hanson on steroids".

A spokeswoman for Finance Minister Mathias Cormann, who shook Senator Anning's hand after the speech, said he was only following protocol. "I felt like I was trapped in a Ku Klux Klan rally", he said.

Elon Musk Confirms Saudis Will Pay for Taking Tesla Private
According to Musk, the tweet followed a meeting with the managing director of Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund. Musk's tweets announcing his intentions to take the company private have prompted a backlash from some investors .

"I am Muslim migrant, I'm about to be a Senator and there's not a damn thing Fraser Anning can do about it", she wrote in a piece for a website.

"I'm exhausted of fighting", she said, breaking down in tears as she addressed the chamber Wednesday.

Fraser Anning has refused to apologize for the content of his first upper house speech. "The fact is if you were so appalled you should have got up and walked out of the place", Ms Hanson said.

Labor with the support of the government moved a motion in the Senate and the House; the leaders in both houses spoke. Hanson said she warned Anning not to take Howard on to his staff when Anning replaced Roberts after his disqualification.

"The Islamist terrorists" argument to other Muslims is: "Australia is not your country". Turnbull said in his own speech, "Those who try to demonize Muslims because of the crimes of a tiny minority are only helping the terrorists".

"Be very clear about this".

Muslims make up about 3 percent of Australia's population.

Mr Shorten said the comments amounted to racism which should be rejected by all Australians.

"We have to call it out and we must condemn it", he said.

The motion, which did not mention Anning by name, acknowledged "the historic action of the Holt Government, with bipartisan support from the Australian Labor Party, in initiating the dismantling of the White Australia Policy".

Ms Aly told Parliament she was proud of the response from all sides of politics against Mr Anning's speech.

And in her Junkee article, she said that with "increasing regularity" politicians were using "race-baiting as an avenue to votes".
