Words matter: Bernardi

April 03, 2019

Queensland Senator Fraser Anning (pictured) has been condemned by his colleagues passing a censure motion in the Senate over his comments in the wake of last month's Christchurch terror attack which left 50 Muslims dead.

Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi said while he believed Senator Anning's comments were imprudent and political opportunism (in that he blamed the victims), the full wording of the motion supported by Labor, the Greens and the Coalition government was hypocritical "hate speech" of the left.

Senator Bernardi specified he opposed parts of the motion, because of the language used, but backed the actual censure of Anning itself. 

The censure motion passed on the voices.
