“This kid is a hero”👊🏾
(Article via daily mail) Right-wing Australian Senator Fraser Anning drew global condemnation for his comments essentially blaming Muslims for the act of terrorism taken out on them in New Zealand. The senator blamed the attack in Christchurch writing early Friday, "I am utterly opposed to any form of violence within our community, and I totally condemn the actions of the gunman, [...] However, whilst this kind of violent vigilantism can never be justified, what it highlights is the growing fear within our community, both in Australia and New Zealand, of the increasing Muslim presence."
Anning attempt to flip this situation as a way to stoke more fear prompted a young man attending his press conference to egg the racist senator. However, Anning didn't take the egging lightly, as he immediately retaliated by throwing two punches at the teen before he was apprehended by men in attendance and later taken into police custody.
