Teen Eggs Senator Who Blamed Mass Shooting On Immigration

Teen Eggs Senator Who Blamed Mass Shooting On Immigration

Senator Anning, known for inflammatory racist remarks, was speaking to reporters at an event in Melbourne as the 17-year-old protester walks up behind him and smashed an egg over the back of Anning's head while recording video on his mobile phone.

The young boy was slapped on his face by the shocked senator, in response before a fight breaks out. In a statement released on the same day when 50 people were gunned down by white supremacist attacker Brenton Tarrant, Anning suggested that the tragedy highlighted "the growing fear over an increasing Muslim presence" in New Zealand.

He tweeted Friday asking if anyone "still" disputed the link between Muslim immigration and violence.

On his official Twitter account, the ambassador posted a series of messages in Indonesian, a translation of Scott Morrison's words, saying that "Anning's views had no place in Australia, let alone in the Australian parliament".

His Instagram now boasts more than 241,000 followers and his Twitter feed is flooded with fans calling him a hero and affectionately renaming him Egg Boy.

The 69-year-old politician then turns around and smacks the boy in the face before taking a second swing at the teen.

In the same speech, Anning called for drastic cuts to Muslim immigration and a return to racially based immigration policies.

Earlier Saturday, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, along with politicians around the world, condemned Mr Anning for his comments.

Sadly, as part of that, Senator Fraser Anning was once again elevated to a global platform as Oliver discussed the subsequent discussion that occurred in the hours immediately following the attack.

A censure motion is one of the stronger forms of rebuke parliament can make.

Following the incident, Connolly was taken into police custody but was later released without charge.

"The incident is being actively investigated by Victoria Police in its entirety", the statement said, including Anning's actions.

In the wake of the attacks, several efforts are underway to support the local Muslim community in Christchurch, including one by the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh.

"I hope your fellow Australians respond to this disgusting statement with the same blind fury I am feeling".

A teen protestor hit a far-right Australian senator with an egg on March 15 after the lawmaker said that an immigration program which allows Muslims into the country is the "real cause of bloodshed".
