Senator displays alarming attitude in maiden speech

RECENT emergence, or perhaps re-emergence, of increasingly strident and extreme racist attitudes in Australia, encompassed in the so-called debate about immigration have been both disappointing and alarming.

This descended into the absurd with Senator Anning's outrageous comments in his Maiden Speech, with his unfounded and hurtful comments about race and religion.

To have this dangerous drivel supported enthusiastically by Bob Katter was equally alarming. I for one condemn this, and sincerely hope I am joined by many others in doing so.
