Australian senator Fraser Anning in punch-up after blaming Christchurch's Muslim victims

Australian senator Fraser Anning in punch-up after blaming Christchurch's Muslim victims

The teenager who egged Senator Fraser Anning after he blamed immigration for the Christchurch Mosque massacre has seen his social media following grow by tens of thousands.

The senator responded by punching the 17-year-old teen, who was then tackled to the ground by Anning's supporters in the crowd.

A third person added: "You are an embarrassment to humanity". But because of a quirk in the Australian electoral system, he was elevated to the Senate by the anti-immigration, anti-Muslim One Nation party after a court ruled that its senator, Malcolm Roberts, had not been eligible to run for election due to his dual citizenship. He was later released pending further inquiries.

Police said the boy was arrested but was released without charge pending a further investigation. Victoria police are investigating the incident.

"What I said was that a terribly unfortunate thing, a tragedy, but it's going to be eventually accepted or expected that these sort of things happen".

Anning was speaking to media and reportedly talking about "fake refugees" and the "threat of immigration" when the violence broke out.

Through his act of smashing a raw egg onto the back of Anning's skull, the teenager instantly became an global hero. "I learned the hard way". An angry Fraser Anning turned around and punched a young boy after he was egged at the event. You only need a pure heart and the egg boy has a heart of gold!

Honestly, some might want to knock some sense into him.

Mr Morrison is also in talks with senators Mathias Cormann and Penny Wong about a bipartisan motion when parliament returns in April.

Police allege the boy assaulted the senator with the egg.

Mr Morrison's comments came in a meeting after being asked to bring three ideas for issues on which the coalition should concentrate its political attack during the parliamentary term.

"I think the full force of the law should be applied to Senator Anning", Mr Morrison said.

Anning has received widespread condemnation following comments he made that saying cause of New Zealand's worst peace time shooting was letting "Muslim fanatics" migrate to the country. At the moment, there is also a fundraising page that has been set up to collect donations to help the boy with his legal fees and to acquire more eggs.

Sally Rugg, the executive director of Change.org Australia, said the petition could easily reach the million vote mark on Sunday.

Others suggested that Anning is no different than the terrorist who killed 49 people who were calmly attending to their religious duty.
