Senator Fraser Anning says Australian-born criminals who are Muslim should be deported
The Queensland senator widely condemned for using the phrase “final solution” while advocating a new White Australia policy wants to deport Australian criminals.
Fraser Anning is wrong. Very wrong. But he is an elected member … (and) I wanted to let him put his view across.
I also wanted to debate certain points, although I don’t think there’s much point…
– Neil Mitchell
In a strange interview, Mr Anning:
- Refused to apologise for the offensive comment, nor concede it was offensive;
- Made outrageous and unfounded claims about “the Apex people”;
- Disputed facts as opinion;
- Declared he wanted to deport Australian-born criminals who are Muslim — “Yeah, I think I probably would.”
Neil Mitchell: So if an Australian-born person who is Muslim commits a crime, would you deport them?
Senator Anning: Yeah, I think I probably would.
Neil, incredulously: HOW?!
