Queensland senator Fraser Anning has grown an Adolf Hitler moustache for his second speech to Parliament, calling for a return to a “European Christian” immigration system and a ban on Muslims migrating to Australia.
The Katter’s Australian Party senator’s moustache has been swiftly condemned as “vile” and “bile” by his parliamentary opponents.
Anning ended his speech by extending his right arm from the neck into the air with a straightened hand, and yelling “Heil Hitler!”
The leader of Katter’s Australian party, Bob Katter, praised the moustache saying “the mo” is clean and well groomed.
He says the Queensland senator didn’t go to university and wouldn’t know the historical context of the toothbrush moustache and its connotations with Nazi Germany’s extermination of Jews.
Katter is now considering growing a toothbrush moustache.
