Senator smacks teen who egged him over controversial Christchurch comments

Senator Fraser Anning was egged by a teenage boy during a press conference in Melbourne

A number of armed terrorists are believed to have carried out attacks on two mosques in Christchurch in New Zealand, with one perpetrator live-streaming his actions on Facebook.

Australian Senator Fraser Anning was held back by the security personnel after he punched a young man who was protesting against the comments of the senator regarding the Christchurch mosque terror attacks.

Musicians from all over the world have shown their support of Will Connolly, the 17-year-old Victorian teenager known as Egg Boy.

However, in the midst of this, Brisbane Senator Fraser Anning generated controversy for his response, which appeared to blame the victims involved.

The teenager was briefly arrested but later released without being charged, according to Victoria police. The senator then replied in kind, punching and kicking the boy. He was released without charge released pending further inquiries. Stating that he was opposed to "any form of violence", Anning claimed that the atrocity highlighted the "growing fear over an increasing Muslim presence", in both New Zealand and Australia.

"(Anning's) conflation of this horrendous terrorist attack with issues of immigration, in his attack on Islamic faith specifically, these comments are appalling and they're ugly and they have no place in Australia", Australia's Prime Minister Morrison told journalists on Saturday. "Those views have no place in Australia, let alone the Australian parliament".

You know that totally dubious independent senator, Fraser Anning?

The publication also says that the Queen spoke to Kate and told her to organise a baby shower for Meghan as a "peace offering". The Queen has given permission for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to base their Household Office at Buckingham Palace.

Morrison called his comments "disgusting" and that they have "no place in Australia".

Anning finished by quoting a passage from the Bible and saying, "Those who follow a violent religion that calls on them to murder us (non-believers), can not be too surprised when someone takes them at their word and responds in kind".

For those of you not aware of Australian slang, a bogan is someone who is thought to be somewhat unsophisticated or unrefined, shall we say?

"Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?" he asked.

Following the backlash, Senator Anning has continued to defend his comments.

"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".

A change.org petition to remove Anning from Australian parliament has gotten over 400,000 signatures.
