A petition calling for the removal of Senator Fraser Anning from parliament over his response to the NZ mosque terrorist attacks, has received over 800K signatures, the most in Australian history.

More than one million people have signed a petition to remove Queensland Senator Fraser Anning from Parliament after his remarks following the Christchurch mosque massacre.
Senator Anning said that while he was opposed to violence of any form, “what it highlights is the growing fear within our community, both in Australia and New Zealand, of the increasing Muslim presence”.
The response on social media was fast and furious but a Sydney doctor Kate Ahmad and a Melbourne author Harris Sultan decided to do more than tweet.
Separately and an hour apart, they started petitions requesting Senator Anning be removed from parliament. For both, it was their first petition. Now merged, the petition is by far the largest in Australian online petition history – and even individually Dr Ahmad’s had eclipsed the Sydney Opera House horse racing advertising petition in 2018.
Executive director of change.org Sally Rugg said it was not just the petition with the most signatures since the platform began but it was also the fastest-growing. Almost 250,000 people signed up in the first 18 hours. She said the petition was a lightning rod for those who did not support what she described as anti-Muslim sentiment in some sections of the media and parliament.
Dr Ahmad was shocked by the senator’s remarks. Her petition said:
“Senator Fraser Anning has no place in the government of our democratic and multicultural country. We request that he be expelled from his position as senator, and investigated by law enforcement agencies for supporting right wing terrorism.”
She has been blown away by the response.
“It shows that Australians don't tolerate extreme hate speech and the attitude that Senator Anning has displayed,” she said.
Dr Ahmad, 39, is a staff specialist neurologist and director of physician training at Royal North Shore Hospital. She grew up in Hobart and went to a small Catholic school.
Although she is thrilled by the response, she understands there is no mechanism for expelling politicians unless they are criminals or dual citizens, but she wanted to make a point.
“It’s to make clear that this kind of hate speech won’t be accepted by the community or the country as a whole, that there are repercussions for this behaviour," she said.
“Politics has degenerated to the point where extreme views have become mainstream and have a veneer of legitimacy. It’s a problem we have an elected member of parliament like this and he must take responsibility for his actions.”
Her co-petitioner is Harris Sultan, 35, an ex-Muslim, author and activist who came to Australia from Pakistan. He was motivated to start the petition because he believes it’s acceptable to argue about ideologies, "but we cannot be bigoted towards people".
"We can’t support comments or views that demonise entire communities,” he said.
University of Sydney political sociologist Professor Ariadne Vromen said people did not sign petitions such as these without care or thought.
“Petitioning has become a routine way to express a point of view and have a voice which people don’t feel they have any more,” she said.
Her research on change.org shows 75 per cent of signatories have only ever signed one petition and the remainder tend to sign only in the area they care about.
University of Sydney constitutional law expert Professor Anne Twomey said that unless the Parliamentary Privileges Act 1987 was amended, there was no possibility for a member to be expelled – and as she pointed out, it was unlikely to be amended in the few sitting days left before the expected election.
“Disqualification is a different matter ... it includes disqualification of any person who is 'attainted of treason, or has been convicted and is under sentence, or subject to be sentenced, for any offence punishable under the law of the Commonwealth or of a State by imprisonment for one year or longer'. It does not cover behaviour likely to bring the houses into disrepute (which is still grounds for expulsion in the NSW Parliament),” she said.
Dr Ahmad said: “It may be that we now need to have some kind of provision to exclude parliamentarians who incite or encourage extremism.”
Senator Anning’s office has been approached for comment.

  1. Regarding the bomb in Manchester ..... don't get mad at the hammer, blame the arm that wields the hammer ..... go after the politicians & pedo-priests that are flooding Western Christianity with barbarians .... take Tolerance, Diversity, & Inclusion, braid them into a rope, and hang the TRAITORS with it you have 3,000 mudslums "under surveillance"? Buy 3,000 body bags, and fill them.
    For decades the Jews have been working to fragment any homogeneous stable White Christian towns (Hamtramack, MI.) or neighborhoods they could find. This has been a deliberate step in their genocide.

    Everyone should be frightened by Muslims allowed to come here. Read this history of Muslim behavior in India. It was much worse than what Hitler did to Jews:
    Dayanand Saraswati, Indian sage, said in 1883, "Having thus given a cursory view of the Koran, I lay it before the sensible person with the purpose that they should know what kind of a book the Koran is. I have no hesitation to say that it cannot be the work of either God or of a learned man, nor can it be a book of knowledge. Here its very vital defect has been exposed with the object that people may not waste their life falling into its imposition. The Koran is the result of ignorance, the source of animalization of human beings, a fruitful cause of destroying peace, an incentive to war, and propagator of hostility among men and a promoter of suffering in society. As to defect of repetition, the Koran is its store."
    For decades the "liberals" have been driving around with "FREE TIBET" bumper stickers and demanding China quit FLOODING BUHDDIST TIBET WITH ETHNIC CHINESE. Now they support the same thing they have been protesting ..........., being done to Christian Europe. Even the DALAI LAMA spoke out http://yournewswire.com/dalai-lama-europe-migrants/

  2. Rot in Hell you weaklings.
    Little European CHRISTIAN girls are gang raped and murdered by the Invading Savages and we do not hear a PEEP out of you.
    Why won’t the MSM Talking Heads tell you about the Murdering Muslims around the World? https://www.governmentpropaganda.net/why-wont-the-msm-talking-heads-tell-you-about-the-murdering-muslims-around-the-world/

  3. ....as a Senator...if that is his opinion...he has a responsibility to say so. You can disagree, but his comment is in line with how many of his constituency feel, or he wouldn't be their Senator. As for the kid and the egg, glad the Senator got in a good shot on the punk. The kid should be charged with assault. If I were the Senator...I would hold a press conference...and when challenged about defending against the kid...take out a dozen eggs and start pelting the press. See you they feel about it then.

  4. Oh zaphad dont waste our time with your rambles old codger....That's most kind of you

  5. Are you a little European christian girl?.............Or more likely a FAT, WHITE, Pancake chomping, couch spud......

  6. go chase a goat you future pig food.

  7. muhammud was a homosexual pedophile.

  8. Brenton Tarrant’s shooting rampage was the result of unchecked third world migration into European countries. It’s also the result of Moslems in our countries killing our people. If we didn’t have Moslems in our countries, Tarrant would have had no reason to do what he did. Tarrant specifically cited Moslem terrorist acts against our people as his primary motivation in his manifesto.

    Political solutions have been made impossible. White people are unable to publicly express their views on these subjects without being persecuted in some fashion. And when you make peaceful solutions impossible, violence is the ultimate result.

  9. This shooting was fake. To hell with shria law.

  10. australians used to be made of tougher & smarter stuff,. now they're a bunch of melting brainwashed snowflakes regurgitating whatever the pathological lying psychopaths in the media TELL THEM TO THINK!

  11. This is the reason that Free Speech should ALWAYS be the law. These crazy fanatics are just an ugly lynch mob. The man was elected. You don't have any right to violate the will of the people by your fascistic list! There is no such thing as hate speech. Only speech. Anyone who says different is not for democracy, they are for tyranny.
