Bill Shorten slams ‘man baby Nazis’ involved in violent CBD protest
Former Labor leader Bill Shorten is the latest official to blame “professional troublemakers” for creating chaos outside CFMEU headquarters on Monday.
Mr Shorten said there was no doubt some of those in attendance were construction workers, but not all was as it seemed.
“There is a network of hard-right, man baby Nazis, people who just want to cause trouble and complain about the vaccination,” Mr Shorten told TODAY on Nine on Tuesday morning.
“They deserve to get the full force of everything that’s coming their way.”
Several prominent figures at the protest on Monday have been spotted at anti-lockdown rallies previously.
“There is a network of hard-right man-baby Nazis, people who just want to cause trouble.”
