Fraser Anning calls for a ban on Muslim migrants in maiden speech

In a odd twist of fate, at the same time Senator Anning was spouting his racist rubbish, I was talking in my farewell speech to NSW Parliament about the heavy toll such abuse takes on people on the receiving end.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and all major political parties on Wednesday condemned a speech by a minor senator who used the term "final solution" in calling for a revival of a "White Australia" restrictive immigration policy.

Mehreen Faruqi is Australia's first Muslim woman in the senate.

Treasurer Scott Morrison said Senator Anning's comments were "dangerous" and "mindless", and would appeal to terrorist recruiters who preyed on Muslims in places such as Sydney's Lakemba.

"The vast majority of the victims of Islamist terrorism are Muslims", Mr 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.

The senator called for a complete overhaul of the immigration system, saying the parties should recognise the importance of "our predominantly European identity".

"He also opposed the "'gender fluidity" garbage" that is taught in school these days.

He said anyone persuaded to advocate the "false claim" there was an infinite number of genders had surrendered their political soul.

He called for a national vote on who should be allowed to enter the country.

"All I said was the final solution to the immigration problem is a vote of the Australian people", he claimed. It culminated in what the Nazis called the "Final Solution of the Jewish Question in Europe", in which six million Jews were murdered.

But he's refusing to apologise and has no regrets, despite politicians from all parties condemning his comments made in his first upper house speech on Tuesday.

Guardian Australia contacted Anning and Howard for comment.

"I'm find with what I said and I'll stand by it".

"Fraser is dead right - we do not want people coming in from the Middle East or North Africa unless they're the persecuted minorities. Join the war on our side, '" Turnbull said in a statement obtained by The Times.

"So those who try to demonise Muslims because of the crimes of a tiny minority are only helping the terrorists".

Hanson denounced Anning's speech. But Hanson has distanced herself from Anning. "I love it!" He maintained "90 per cent of Australia have been waiting for someone to say it and believe it".

Independent Senator Derryn Hinch said there "was hardly a group of Australians he did not offend unless you were very close to being a member of the Ku Klux Klan". Hanson said on Wednesday. "As I called for a plebiscite on the immigration mix, this baseless and ridiculous criticism is simply an effort to play the man and not the ball", Anning said.

"Now, as I said, I'm appalled by Fraser Anning's speech". We are a multi-racial society.
