ONE Nation Senator Pauline Hanson has prompted a walkout in the Senate with her maiden speech that said Australia risks being “swamped" by Muslims.
“We are in danger of being swamped by Muslims who bear a culture and ideology incompatible with our own,” she said.
The Queensland Senator also paid tribute to her infamous maiden speech in the House of Representatives 20 years ago in which she said Australia was in danger of being swamped by Asians.
Only now, she claims Islam represents a threat to Australia’s way of life and called for borders to be closed to immigrants — even offering to drive people to the airport to leave the country permanently.
“If you are not prepared to become Australian and give our country your undivided loyalty … I suggest you go back to where you came from,” she said.
Greens Senators walked out of the chamber in protest following that remark.
