Pauline Hanson, the One Nation leader in Australia, has increased the intensity of her call for her country to ban Muslim immigration in response to the terrorist attack that has killed six people in London. Hanson took to Twitter as the news came out that three jihadi terrorists had used knives to kill people in the center of London.
“Stop Islamic immigration before it is too late,” the Queensland senator told her followers in Australia on Sunday morning. The early morning tweet included a graphic with the headline: “London terror alert.” Hanson warned that they needed to stop Muslim immigration in Australia while it was just 2.5 percent of the population. She challenged that if they didn’t stop it, soon it would hit 5 percent like England.
“Australia is tired of telling both sides of government that Islam is incompatible with Australian values,” her message said. “Australia refuses to hide the fact that terrorism is related to the Islamic teachings in the Koran.” Senator Hanson recently described Islam as a disease, she said that “Islam is just another word for terror. The Australian people have had enough, send them back where they came from along with their prehistoric views.” She received significant support on her Facebook page where one person posted this comment, “It’s not going to stop, and it’s won’t be long before we have it happening here too because our p*** poor politicians are too scared of saying anything to offend.”
As you will see in the video below, opposition leaders in Australia like Bill Shorten, have called Hanson’s remarks “crass, idiotic and disgusting.” Shorten said, “We don’t even know in full what’s happened and now what we’ve got is people using this for the crassest of political messages within hours of this event happening,” he told reporters in Melbourne.
