Fraser Anning: Australia MPs condemn 'final solution' speech

There is no doubt in my mind that many migrants and especially Muslim-Australians woke up this morning deeply anxious, worried about the license Anning's speech gives to racist opportunists.

An Australian politician was widely criiticised on Wednesday after demanding "a final solution" to immigration while calling for a return to the White Australia policy that favoured "European Christians".

Labor senator Anthony Chisholm said it was surprising she pushed ahead with her plebiscite legislation given her comments.

Last night, Senator Anning spat in the face of millions of Australians, spewing hate and racism in his first speech to Parliament.

Australian senator Pauline Hanson reacts as she talks with local Aboriginal people in the northern Australian town of Rockhampton in Queensland, Australia, November 8, 2017.

An Essential poll in April reported that 64 per cent of respondents believe immigration over the past 10 years is too high.

First elected in 1996 as a lower house member, Senator Hanson sparked a similar outcry when she used her own maiden speech to argue that Australia risked being swamped by Asian immigration.

Anning held third place on One Nation's Queensland ticket at the 2016 election.

"We do not want people coming in from the Middle East or North Africa unless they're the persecuted minorities".

The Katter's Australia Party member - who recently defected from One Nation immediately after being sworn in - also called for a "final solution" to the country's immigration problem, a term previously used by the Nazis when they planned to annihilate Jewish people during World War Two. "The speech was written by a Richard Howard, straight from [Joseph] Goebbels' handbook from Nazi Germany", she said.

Saudi Airlines suspends Canadian operations starting August 13
Saudi Airlines issued a tweet early Tuesday saying flights to and from Canada would be suspended starting August 13. He has introduced a raft of headline-grabbing reforms, such as lifting the ban on women being allowed to drive .

"Absolutely, 1000%, I support everything he said", Katter told reporters during a news conference in the northern city of Cairns Wednesday.

Anning's attack on non-white Australians and Muslims is really out of this world stuff.

Tim Soutphommasane, Australia's race discrimination commissioner, commended so many speaking out against Anning's racism. "I hadn't even thought about it", he told radio station 2GB.

Mr Anning also called for a complete ban on Muslim immigration and linked Muslim communities to terrorism and being on welfare programmes.

"The remarks by Senator Anning are justly condemned and rejected by us all".

"If you have a jar of jelly beans and three of them are poisonous, you're not going to try any of them", Senator Anning told 2GB's Alan Jones.

The outrage over Anning's comments follows fury earlier this month after broadcaster Sky News aired an interview with far-right agitator Blair Cottrell, who once called for a portrait of Adolf Hitler to be hung "in every (Australian) classroom and every school".

A visibly-shaken Derryn Hinch said it was "one of the most disgraceful, racist, homophobic, divisive, misogynist, spiteful, hateful speeches I've ever heard", and made him feel like he was "trapped in a Ku Klux Klan rally".

If Senator Anning really wants to learn about the value of multicultural Australia, he knows where to find me. "I have always advocated you do not have to be white to be Australia".
