Fraser Anning: Bob Katter backs senator's 'racist' maiden speech

Fraser Anning and Bob Katter

"We as a nation are entitled to insist that those who are allowed to come here predominantly reflect the historic European-Christian composition of Australian society", Anning told the upper house of parliament.

Anning, formerly of One Nation but now with the Katter's Australian Party, attracted instant backlash for using the phrase "final solution" in regards to immigration.

Asked if he should apologize for the remark, Anning said: "No, I don't apologize for anything I say".

"I want to apologise to the Senate and the Australian people that after the vomitous poison last night I then, stupidly, and unthinkingly, and I did think about it, I followed Senate protocol and I should have lined up here and shook this unworthy man's hand", a clearly emotional Hinch said.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten also branded Senator Anning's speech "racist" and described it as "repugnant and disgraceful".

One Nation leader Hanson said she was "appalled" by Anning's speech.

In Nazi Germany, the extermination of Jewish people throughout Europe was known as "the final solution to the Jewish question".

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

Dvir Abramovich, head of Australia's Anti-Defamation Commission, said the senator had discredited himself by using the term "final solution".

Ms Schneider had a hard life, born with drugs in her system to a drug addicted mother who died when she was only 13-years-old. Katie also continues physical and occupational therapy, works with a speech therapist and takes Braille lessons.

In his maiden speech at the Senate on Tuesday, Anning targeted global students by asking for an "end to Australian-job-stealing 457 visas" and "force worldwide students to return to their country of origin once they finish their education". If people want to take it of context that is entirely up to them. "Two words would speak for the brutalization and murder of millions".

"There was hardly a group of Australians he did not offend unless you were close to being a member of the Ku Klux Klan".

Many MPs and senators spoke during the debate over those motions, in shared condemnation of Mr Anning's speech.

Anning also called for a complete ban of Muslim immigration, stating his reasoning as a perceived link between Muslim communities and terrorist activity.

"Those who seek to demonise all Muslims on the basis of the crimes of a tiny minority are helping the terrorists", PM Malcolm Turnbull said. We have in this chamber representatives of Australians whose families have been here for generations, who are the descendants of migrants to Australia of more than 100 years ago.

Energy and Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg, who is Jewish, said the comments were "ignorant and insensitive. they were hurtful and divisive". "All of us unite together to fight against the scourge of racism - we always have and we always will", he said.

On Wednesday, the Senate considered a motion noting Australia had benefited since the dismantling of the White Australia discriminatory immigration policy in 1973, where many senators pointedly slammed Anning.

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

He said Senator Hanson's speech to the Senate this morning was at odds with her previous views on race and religion. "I'm exhausted of having to stand up against hate, against vilification, time and time again".
