Australian PM slams disgusting remarks by Senator

Australia PM Scott Morrison and Senator Fraser Anning

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called an Australian senator’s comments on the Christchurch mosque shootings “disgusting”.

Senator Fraser Anning released a statement that blamed New Zealand’s immigration policy for yesterday’s terror attacks that have left 49 people dead so far.

Senator Anning says he opposes any form of violence within the community and totally condemns the actions of the gunman.

He, however, says while this kind of violent vigilantism can never be justified, what it highlights is the growing fear within Australia and New Zealand, of the increasing Muslim presence.

Anning says 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.

The senator in his statement says the real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets is the immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison responded via Twitter.

Morrison says the remarks by Senator Anning blaming the murderous attacks by a violent, right-wing, extremist terrorist in New Zealand on immigration are disgusting.

He says those views have no place in Australia, let alone the Australian Parliament.
