Senator Fraser Anning of the Katter Australia Party has gone on a homophobic and transphobic tirade about “Commo perverts” in the Senate and on Twitter.
Anning made headlines last month over his maiden Senate speech in which he said “there are only two genders” and used the term “final solution” in reference to ending Muslim migration to Australia.
The speech attempted to detail a decades-long conspiracy of how “deviants” have infiltrated politics and society in an attempt to create a new world order founded on the deconstruction of “traditional values and the white family”, heavily citing the writings of Marxist philosopher Antonio Gramsci.
Anning’s tweets were, in large part, excerpted from his speech – which was ultimately cut off when he ran out of time.
“Fifty years ago, if a communist pervert had proposed that our nation’s children be forced to listen to sexually deviant propaganda, they would probably have been strung up,” he said.
“Today, this disgusting garbage is called the Safe Schools program.
“When the schools that we trust to look after our children force them at a pre-sexual age to discuss sexual concepts about which they have no understanding, and even, disgustingly, engage in homosexual role- playing, this is simply institutionalised child abuse.
“Whether you identify as a boy, or a girl, wearing different clothes, it makes no difference.
“Even if you start having bits chopped off, you are actually only deluding yourself. You are and remain until the day you die either male or female, as God made you,” Anning said.
“In critical theory, ethnic and religious minorities, radical feminists, sexual deviants, Third World immigrants and antisocial criminals could take the place of the proletariat to create a post-communist revolution, deconstructing traditional values and the white family.
“The real goal of the Safe Schools Commo perverts is absolutely nothing to do with safety in schools or compassion. Safe schools is a dangerous and degenerate program.”
Users on social media reacted with alarm at Anning’s meltdown.
“Seriously, has someone broken Fraser Anning? The bot appears to be malfunctioning badly and spewing forth random information from IPA pamphlets,” one user said.
“Child abuse? I suppose that the being belted to a pulp element of my schooling was just people being friendly, under your reasoning?” tweeted another.
“I’m proud to have been one of the federal steering members of that program. It stopped kids suiciding. Grow up.”

Fraser Anning: I had no idea what the phrase ‘the final solution’ referred to, what on earth are you talking about
Also Fraser Anning: *displays a thorough understanding of extreme right wing theory, as well as a deft and practiced touch with the racial calipers*

Anning was elected to the Senate after One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts was found ineligible to hold the position as a result of the citizenship crisis.
He chose not to represent One Nation in the Senate, sitting as an independent until joining the Katter Australia Party in June.
Anning today expressed support for Pauline Hanson’s desire to move a motion in the Senate acknowledging “the rise of anti-white racism” and that “it is okay to be white”.
