Aussie politician, Queensland Senator Fraser Anning, lashes out at Muslims after Christchurch shootings: “They are the perpetrators”
NZ Herald(h/t NZ Guy) Queensland Senator Fraser Anning has been slammed for his “disgusting” bold comments in the wake of the fatal Christchurch mosque massacre.
In a media statement issued this afternoon that’s been widely condemned on social media, Senator Anning said the attacks highlighted the “growing fear over an increasing Muslim presence” in Australian and New Zealand communities.
He went on to claim the real cause of the bloodshed that’s left at least 49 people dead is New Zealand’s immigration policy. “I am utterly opposed to any form of violence within our community, and I totally condemn the actions of the gunman,” Senator Anning said.
“However, while this kind of violent vigilantism can never be justified, what it highlights is the growing fear within our community, both in Australia and New Zealand, of the increasing Muslim presence.
“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.
“The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place.”
