Over the weekend, after Friday’s tragic terrorist attack in
Christchurch, Senator Fraser Anning went on to release a statement that was
deemed both racist and Islamophobic. In retaliation to the hate speech a
17 year-old boy smashed an egg over Anning’s head during a press
conference. The teen was then tackled, put in a headlock and held on the ground
by a bunch of grown men. Over a million people have signed a petition to have
Anning removed from Parliament and thousands of dollars have been donated to the
egg-boy to cover his legal fees. LiveTribers, are both of these people in the
wrong? Who should be punished? Is it ever okay to put a young man in a headlock?

Of course it is - "eggboy" not only commited an offense he physically assaulted
a member of the public and was restrained in doing so... Violence in any form
should held to account and policed by the appropriate means -
We preach that we live in a democratic society, yet we condemn people for their
points of view?
Maybe the timing could have been better?
As for the 17 year old, is it right to egg someone for their views?
I think the whole thing has been blown out by the media!!
Egging someone as a physical form of disagreement has been around for centuries.
The Anning maggot was literally asking for it with the ridiculous and biased
comments he made. He should've just accepted it for what it was. Arnold
Schwarzenegger was egged many years back and did he try to punch someone out?
No, he turned and yelled at the crowd with a grin "Now that guy owes me bacon!".
Senator Anning was not voted in, he was a replacement. He's a dangerous little
maggot spouting extremist rubbish and he's just no better than the Christchurch
mass murderer - get rid of him!
Definitely the egg boy should be punished. He started it, he asked for it and he
deserved it. Brainless action.
Senator Fraser Anning is only telling the truth that a lot of TWO-FACE
Australians are too scared to express.
Do refugees bring problems? Does Islam bring extremist? YES OF COURSE
The Boy was wrong for caring out the Egg attack. He is young and immature and
should be punished by his parents for this act.
Senator Anning was also wrong for the way he handled this. He should not have
become physical at all.
Behaviours from both were unacceptable.
Yes the young man (thug) attacked a member of the Australian Parliment wether
you like his views or not he should not be subject to this. If someone attacks
they have to expect to be restrained and who knows what weapons he might have
had, look aaround the world when we have footage of attacks he got of lightly.
Each time this fellow uses tax payers money to leave his own state to come to
Victoria he has stirred up unbelievable amount of trouble. It is a pity he
doesn't need a visa to come to Victoria (Melbourne), because if I was manning
immigration he would banned from getting on the plane. He should be made pay
back the airfares - which he claims is legal. Stay out of our state !
It was a political rally and Senator Anning can thank his lucky stars that it
wasn't more than an egg. Although the 17yo may be wrong in the eyes of the law,
many an incident at political rallies have occurred without the retaliation
metered out both by the so-called Senator, and his heavy handed "guards", should
not go unpunished. To have bodyguards of the calibre that he had there, he
obviously was expecting some sort of trouble
The boy committed assault, and the whole thing was a setup to get a reaction.
Unfortunately he got what he and his gutless family, using their kid wanted.
Both should be charged with assault and affray, and given a meaningful penalty
not a slap on the wrist, via community work. Fine them and penalise financially,
so they both learn it is not the way civilised responsible people behave. The
parents should be investigated by docs for using their child for their own
Yes the boy isn't really a boy at 17 he also can't go assaulting some one and be
excused entirely no I find that wrong and he shouldn't get off Scott free but be
charged according to his age and nature of the offence but the politain acted
in defense I don't say what he did was right but it was self defense so he
should be punished to loose his seat in the elections
Senator Anning should be listened to and carefully considered, if he is or isn't
right. People had to elect him, so he can't be so out.
The boy might need bowing over a knee and getting good trashing, but at 17 years
of age is too late anyway.
Both shall be punished severely by life anyway - the senator by never seeing his
dreams come through, the boy by coming his dreams through (maybe he'll enjoy
some form of totality he fights for - regardless if a green or read flag with
Quran quotes flaying over the parliament in Canberra or other politically
correct witch-hunts in excessively expensive and unsuccessful but
politically/environmentally/gender/... correctly equal Australia.
Fortunately, I needn't care much. I'd be happy 6 feet underground by that time.
Nevertheless, understanding of the future because of extensive horrible
experience in the past disturbs me. History knows no mercy.
Actually, with only 19 votes he wasn't elected.
Read this article:
Actually, with 19 votes, he was elected. That's 19 Below the Line votes, his
party at the time would have received a lot more votes. Less than one in ten
voters votes BTL for the Senate. The Senator who appears to have run the "kick
Anning out" petition, Mehreen Faruqi wasn't voted in AT ALL, she was appointed
to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of Lee Rhiannon. With all the
publicity, and EggBoy's antics, it's likely he'll do better than 19 in May,
although not achieve a quota.
Is it OK to ever smash a egg on a politicians head? When an attempted egg
attack happened to Julia Gillard in July 2010 the person was charged. Because
this was an attack on a male politician who says things that frankly, the
majority of us don;t agree with, egg-boy is a hero? Not in my eyes.
Egg-boy committed common assault in the same way that the other person did
Yes, they both committed assault although many people thought the boy deserved
his payback. The money he raised and the attention he got goes to show how low
politics has sunk in this country. It would have been interesting to see whether
EggBoy would have been charged, had Anning not struck him in retaliation.
Probably not, despite Gillard having an egg chucked at her a few years back,
where the thrower was charged and convicted, and his egg missed. Having said
that, Anning's comments were ill-advised and divisive and he needs to choose his
words an awful lot better.
Both are in the wrong,17 year old has no respect and the Senator should have not
lashed out the second time.
The Senator could have been excused for the first slap,reaction maybe to the hit
on head.Then the Senator gets involved violently again,not ok at all.
The 17 year old has no rights to do that to the Senator and filming it without
permission is so rude.
He is no hero,he deserves to be punished not rewarded.Very childish act not
funny at all.
The 17 year old committed an assault. He was filming it to get his 15 minutes of
fame. Why should these types of attention seekers get rewarded? This is not a
matter of 'should it be ok to put a 17 year old in a headlock', it is a matter
of people learning respect.
Just another lesson on how NOT to respect an adult. I may not agree with Mr
Anning but he is a Senator,and yes the young man should have got some sort of
punishment.What if the egg had been a knife. Yes the young lad was held down
rightly so, today's young have no respect for anyone that is why we see so much
violence from teens because there are no repercussions. It was an assault and if
that had been me as an adult I would have been arrested and charged.
Number one , I don't think Anning is racist , I think he just did not articulate
very well the difference between Islam & and extremists who kill and mutilate
their own in the name of Islam.
As far as the incident goes with egg head , if he were my son , I would tell
him to wake up to himself , what he did was assault . I think if he did that to
me I would punch him as well .He is like a lot of other sheep being led by the
nose , just a little trying to be smart Alec .
It looks as if that stupid kid went to the meeting with the egg with the
intention of using it regardless of what Fraser Anning had to say. I am so glad
that the senator gave this kid the slapping that he deserved, but in this day of
over indulging PC I suppose the stupid brat will be a hero.
The matter is the conduct of adult vs minor. The racism is not the issue,
although that was the instigation of the lads action. Assault on a minor people!
By numerous adults using undue force.
The security did take no notice for a boy holding a mobile phone to get close
enough to strike the head with said egg? Due to the nature of the bias words of
anning indicate a need for a step up in security. How easy would it be for a
terroir lone wolf be holding a trigger retaliating to annings comments and
The ADULT not only retaliated but took an extra swipe.
The child was in the wrong but the adult would be charged with child abuse in
any other situation . Puleeze! I’d be scared to have him as a father
The lad hit Anning and he hit back and that should have been the end of it. The
thugs who attacked the lad are the ones who should be punished. There was
absolutely no need for their attack and if it wasn't for the journalists being
there telling them to stop I reckon the chokehold would have been held until he
died, as has happened to others. They pulling on his legs while holding him down
could easily have killed him. And anybody who thinks it is ok to do that to
anyone over a bloody egg is as bad as them!
Fraser Anning is a bigot and since there is a voice to put your opinion across
the boy did it his way but it is about time that pollies who preach unaustralian
policies should be brought to order instead of hiding behind parliamentary doors
and crying foul when someone takes them to task
No matter how much one disagrees with Anning (I know I partly do), becoming a
moral vigilante and trying to shut what others were elected to say (remember
Anning was elected, is closer to dictatorial thought than to any sort of
People voted for that guy, like it or not, and he is representing part of the
people who live in this beautiful country. I'd rather live in a country like
this than in one like China (where such a brat could be executed for egging a
member of parliament btw) or any of the many countries under Islam (they'd
probably cut off the "boy's hand), let me tell you. I have several Muslim
friends that disagree with what is done in their countries and they leave... and
adapt somewhere else, it is just that easy. If you don't like it here and like
NZ better, the doors are open. ;-)
16 people voted for the bloke.
What gets me is that there has been bigger people then bloke in this country and
powerful countries, that have had more things, harder things thrown at them ( by
grown people ) and we didn't see them swing at the tosser.
The "boy" assaulted an elected member of parliament. No matter how much the
"brilliant teen" disagrees with Anning's views, he should never do that. I think
we have a problem with the current generation. They are being taught to be
activists instead of thinkers who are willing to initiate a dialogue. He
purposefully wanted to embarrass Anning and he ended up getting his face
smacked! He deserves it!
As for "was then tackled, put in a headlock and held on the ground by a bunch of
grown men"... what else do they expect Anning's bodyguards to do? Congratulate
him for being a stupid punk?
Should Anning have hit the "boy"? I think I would have... it's just a quick
reaction. When being attacked you don't ask for someone's ID to know if you can
kick their ass, do you?
Unfortunately, because the "boy" is a stupid leftie (there are smart ones but
he's definitely not one of them), and because lefties love rebellion and
disrespect to authority, irrespective of having acted 1) stupidly, 2) against an
elected parliamentarian, 3) as a self-justified "morally-superior" punk who
wouldn't really want to generate dialogue..., the "boy" is getting a lot of
attention and instead of being judged according to his actions, he will be
dismissed with a pat on the shoulder and he will become a "hero" for many more
stupid lefties like him.
We'll said Cam , these stupid young " Children " jump on the band wagon . It
would be better if they took the growing up time " to think for themselves , " A
young person who showed just how immature he is .
The drop kick who assaulted Senator Anning. While I have no time for the
Senator's views the assault on him with an egg or whatever is an assault in any
language . Were you or I to do that to a member of the public we would not
escape punishment. The idiots who backed the drop kick are exactly in the same
low life camp.
That egg was a weapon and could quite easily have been a knife or a gun. Bad
behavior begets a tough response.How would you have responded to such an attack,
the response from the security guards had to be expected, that's what they are
expected to do, that boy should not have been able to get to the minister.
The boy should definitely be punished. Pretty sure in this country we have
freedom of speech... Therefore senator Fraser Anning had every right to say what
he honestly felt.
I can't believe the outcry about what he said. Did anyone actually hear what
the president of Turkey said? I don't know about all of you guys but being told
if we attend the dawn service in Gallipoli this year we may just be sent home
the same way as our forefathers. Is that not racist? And we aren't condemning
him? Im proud of my country and the men who lost their lives protecting it. I
take my children along to dawn service every year from when they are toddlers to
teach them to have respect to the people that gave their life to save our way of
life. Now we want to mute our own government and let theirs speak... Should we
all just give up and live Sharia law? Not me. I support you senator. You keep
If he has not apologies to the lad sack him.
The lad has already been punished
Also the politician should go to anger management course as expect this will not
be the first or last time.
His henchmen should be investigate by police due to excessive force
Fraser Anning he should know better. Yes the child shouldn't have smashed an egg
on him but maybe he didn't know another way to get his voice heard. the Sentor
used excessive force and his henchmen could have killed the child.
Fraser Anning, is a discussing human being, his immediate reaction to egg boy
was not acceptable nor was the treatment handed out from the other Adults
present. As for Fraser Anning saying Egg Boys mother should have belted him
does he not know that this is 2019, it is not acceptable for any human being to
hit another. Violence in any form is not on.
I say that anyone who justifies mass murder or an act of terrorism must not only
be kicked out of Parliament, as this is clearly not enough to deter people like
Anning. Their citizenship should also be revoked and they should be thrown out
of this country. If you sit in Parliament and use your position to inflict harm
upon the nation by deliberately causing strife within the community, then you
commit an act of TREASON. The same should apply to every politician or
journalist who supports violence (and those who are engaged in hate speech). The
reason that Australia looks like it looks today is because our politicians are
being guided by nefarious agendas, some of them being bribed by groups or
lobbies which represent interests of foreign governments (like the terrorist
Israeli regime for example). This is the exact reason why I've stopped voting in
the Australian election !!
Well me09 , I have to ask you a question , " Are you OK ," or have you been
diagnosed with stupidity syndrome ?
Read what you have written and imagine if you are not the orator of this
dribble , you would be laughing your head off.
Unfortunately in this day and age nobody is allowed to defend themselves. The
young man assaulted Anning first by hitting his head. He didn't throw the egg he
actually hit him and smashed the egg. How is an automatic retaliation not an
appropriate response when assaulted? What, now you have to stop and analyse the
situation, ask your assailant how old they are and then way up the situation to
decide on appropriate action? By then your assailant could have stabbed you to
death. If you don't want a response, don't go round assaulting people. Really
simple. Maybe his parents should be held accountable for never teaching him
right from wrong. If someone hits me, I'm going to automatically take defensive
action to potentially save my life.
It is my belief that the boy should not have egged Anning but ihis is an age
where young men have not yet learned control, yes he should have had some
sanction against him, to remind him of what is acceptable and unacceptable
methods to make a stand against something you disagree with. The punch by
Anning was totally unacceptable, a grown man not able to control himself when
attacked by a young man with eggs, not a weapon that can seriously damage his
body, but eggs that hurt his public pride, is totally unacceptable. Where was
self control applied, Anning's punch would have held much more pain than eggs.
Anning is a grown man, in politics, he knows he will be a target by those who
don't agree with him, he should have taken quick assessment, and dealt with it
appropriately and in balance to the age of the attacker and method of attack.
Finally, I do not agree that a group of grown men take the young man and put
him in a head lock, that is clearly over kill by a group of men, with superior
strength to subdue one young man, a youth not yet in his peak age for strength.
I believe that could have ended badly. This whole scenario was full of bad
adult decisions in their endeavor to bring a single egg throwing youth to his
knees, what bravery - not.
the bratty kid. He got what he deserved. He's not permanently damaged. A good
clip around the ear is fitting enough. If I were in the Senator's position, I
would be very angry and react. I wouldn't just stand there and take it. Would
It's irrelevant who Anning is or what he said. Generally speaking I find most of
his utterances totally repugnant. However, it doesn't matter if it was Anning,
the Pope, Mother Theresa or Adolf Hitler, he was assaulted. The kid had no right
to do that & if he isn't charged the message we're sending is that it's OK to
assault people you don't agree with.
Senator Anning misused his right to freedom of speech to spread hatred among
people from different religions backgrounds. One need to think well before
making public speeches. And on the other hand teen boy has no right to assault
anyone. It good that egg boy is headlocked so that in future there won’t be
another such case. And pubic should think before donating for legal fees for the
boy coz they are encouraging young people to do whatever is good in their sight.
One should not support such acts. Let’s spread peace n love rather than hatred
Both persons are wrong, some type of punishment to each neither must get away
with what they both did, Senator Anning was out of order same with the
17-year-old boy. Stop all the hatred, move forward and learn from this out of
all though senator Annings remarks are offensive to a large amount of the
population he does have the right to freedom of speech as does everyone else
have and should not be restricted , the majors parties and some would like to
take that right from us all you do not have to and it does not do his case any
good. As for egg boy if he is not punished it,s sending a message that its
alright to assault people you do not agree with
The Senator should be punished severely for his comments by Parliament for his
comments. As well, civil action by the police should ensue for his aggressive
assault over response on and to the young teen.
His henchmen/supporters used excessive and aggressive force on restraining the
young teen in a choke hold and should be at least cautioned by police or
This is Australia, the boy was a thug, got what he deserved, The senator, whilst
being a bit foolish in his comments, was permitted to say them, it does not make
Islamophobic, after living in several Islamic states and seen how people are
treated, I have a great dislike for islam, i,ts ways and methods, a phobia is a
fear of, not a dislike of, get the english right.
I certainly wouldn't like to have an egg smashed on my head, and have to cope
with the stickiness and mess on my shirt for the rest of the day until I could
have a shower and change my clothes, I believe the egg boy is a spoilt brat
who's used to getting his own way and thinks he knows it all after 17 years of
life experience, also I noted that most news reported that the senator responded
by punching the lad but they looked more like slaps to me. If anyone should be
punished in this case it should be the attacker egg boy!
Senator Anning should be punished by kicking him out of parliament, he is racist
bigot, and how dare he hit a boy and get the heavy handed men to tackle him over
a egging. The young man should be let off, it is not like he assaulted him with
a weapon! I think many other MP's would of just took it on the chin and had a
talk to the boy, but not Senator Anning, he is an aggressive nasty person who
should not be part of our democratic Government.
I must say that the amount of hate we see every day in the Australian mainstream
media and political circles makes Hitler look pale.. Its not just Anning, by the
way, but all those MPs who tacitly agree with him, including the hypocrite
Morrison. As much as Hitler was evil, at least he has contributed to the German
economy, while our nefarious politicians are focused only on one thing -
advocating hate and personal gains !
this is the reason younger generation is the lost generation.... they have no
idea of responsibility, accounatibity and think they are above the law, which
the idiot universities promote as does the justice system..
dont worry this little spoilt brat will not be charged with anything he will get
rap on the hand and come out with oodle of money from idiot people donating
Sounds like you have a problem with being neutral.... hope you grow up.. Also
hope the boy grows up because if he doesnt.... one day he will pick on someone
who will not treat him like a human, but will put a bullett through his head.
Who should be punished ? Perhaps it is us - the Australian voters who should be
punished for allowing Nazis, bigots, thugs and other dangerous criminals to sit
in Parliament, accumulate multi million dollar pensions/ estates funded by the
tax payer money and shamelessly disseminate their poisonous ideologies (in the
name of "freedom of speech", of course). Since when is it ok to justify mass
murder or an act of terrorism ?? No wonder that this country looks like it looks
today and no wonder that the terrorist who committed the massacre was an
AUSTRALIAN. The fact that people here tolerate hate speech and, in fact, LOVE it
and encourage it, just proves what a nasty place Australia has become. And its
not only limited to racism - look how many poor and homeless people live here
today ! A country abundant with natural resources and wealth - more than Norway
and the UAE combined. Instead of protesting against corruption, inequality,
racism and poverty, people here have found themselves an easy "scapegoat" to
vent all their anger and frustration. What a terrible, hopeless country !
me09 guess they didnt teach you at school, that Australia like all countries
of the world apart from 6 obeys the UN and does what UN, who is controlled by
ISRAHELL & USA& SAUD...
So before you run Australia into the ground i guess you should get an education
and get rid of the brain washing and propogrand you are sprout...
TIP stick to answering the question and dont bring in other topic,, You could
start more topic with all the things you are het up about-- That would be
EXACTLY what was your point you rambled on about a lot of thing but produced no
evidence, a lot like the video form NZ... or people died alright, but not
as we have been told,, and if you didnt see the vidoe I suggest you try an find
a copy, but be careful because the gestapo tranny pm of NZ will put you in jail
if caught.. how that for freedom of opinion.
And i suggest also respectfully to go and investigate our very own Port arthur
incident, which was another False Flag [which just in case you were never
educated as what that means - False Flag is a very old term for an incident
when you are feed a false narrative and not told the facts eg 911, Sandy Hook,
Vietnam and many more... USA,Israhell are very good at these... All in the
ame of progress>
I wonder how many times you have protestested, wrote to your mp, etc???? if
you havent, they you dont get the priviledge to complaining about Australia..
That child is not as knowledgeable as he thinks he is. He is a despicable little
coward who got what he deserved. What I have seem that Senator Fanning said was
not racist or islamophobic. It was intended to encourage people to think the
situation through for themselves and consider if our Government is working in
the correct direction for a solid cohesive future community.
musicveg, you are going to have a great world to live in with you lack of
boundaries and opinion.
better learn to speak and understand English... as you apparently didnt hear
what was said .. but what you expected to hear..
What democratic country sweetie... hope you are not talking about Australia...
if you are, better get a refund for the education you paid for... you have been
That young boy did not deserve to be handled the way he was handled. The boy
smashed an egg on the Senate's head. So what? He didn't have a gun and put
anyone's life in danger and those idiots that held him down like that should be
Christine,,, guess you dont know Australian law very well.
The brat broke the law.... but dont worry the legal system will let him off
because he didnt know what he was doing.
and he will be rich with all the money that is being donated...
break the law take the results..... poor babes... shoot you guys are going to
have a lousy future
No wonder this country is going down the tubes when there are people with an
attitude like yours. The egging was the act of a coward and totally
unjustifiable yet there are fools saying he did no harm. The only idiot on the
scene on that occasion with young idiot with the egg.
The egg smashing moron , the senator has a right to free speech, thus silly
immature kid need charging and teaching a lesson about the right to free speech
without being attached and photographed on a mobile phone , hope the police at
least took that awaupy from him
Charge lefty egg boy with assault as an adult seeing as how he wants to be a big
man and confiscate funds donated as proceeds of crime. Anning did nothing wrong
but as with anyone who doesn't subscribe to the left wing socialist view he has
been attacked by all and his words branded hate speech. Strange how only people
with a different opinion than the left can speak hate speech.
He is speaking on behalf of the Australian people and stating facts. This kid
should have more respect. Just because he opposes his views it does not give
him the right to start violence. A spoiled brat who needs a good kick up the
Both a wrong the kid needs a good swift kick up the arse Politician should have
more sense than going to hit a kid But we all have the freedom to say whay we
feel weather others agree or not But our freedom of speach is being taken away
every week every time we disagree with bad changes for Australia
OMG What the hell is happening to society. How times have changed. What gives a
person the right to harm another person...and then get all the sympathy. Oh poor
thing, he/she had a hard life...awww. There is a distinct lack of respect and a
gross sense of entitlement nowadays. Nobody should take out their grievances on
another defenceless person and if they do they should be punished lawfully. Home
invasions, bashings, murders, drugs etc etc. What's the world coming to?
Disaster in my opinion.
Our "freedom of speech" is the real issue here. The left and extreme left of our
political divide are trying to stifle free speech to the point that any
criticism or comment that they disagree with is immediately classed as "hate",
"radical" "hurtful" etc. If I criticize the wearing of the burka I am sure
there will be those who will vilify me. But that is my view and I am entitled to
it at the moment although I am sure that will not last. If a motorcyclist can't
wear his crash helmet in a bank, why should a supporter of Mohamed by allowed to
wear a Burka? To answer the question asked. Eggboy = go to court, Senator = ask
your electorate at the next election. There is no excuse for violence.
Extremists and religions preaching violence please note - we don't want either
in our country.
Egg is definitely wrong and should be charged with assault. Why can't a person
express their views? Just because some don't like whats being said is not a
reason to retaliate. Senator Fraser Anning should keep his job and little egg
should be punished for his outburst. How egg was detained is nothing to do with
the Senator. The grown men were obviously protecting him. Egg should think
about the consequences of his actions before he lashes out. Crime deserves no
Nommy -- thank you,
now if the law went by it usual route.
the eggs would be banned like guns because they injure people
the egg thrower would be pardoned because he didnt know what he was doing and
he is not the problem but the egg/gun is...
Maybe we could call a boycott on eggs as being dangerous weapons???? LOL
This whole incident has become absolutely unbelievable! So what if Senator
Anning simply spoke his views? All Australian and NZ citizens have full legal
and Constitutional rights to freedom of opinion and speech! He should not be
charged with ANYTHING. All he did was speak, and by the way, I know there are
millions of Australians who would totally agree with him also. People need to
face reality for once and realise the threat some people in this world cause,
and are intent on causing. He has only spoken the facts of what has been going
on in our world - check the news again over the last 2 decades! The kid who
assaulted the senator should be charged appropriately. Teaching teenagers to
assault and attack physically just because someone else has a different view to
their own, is not only irresponsible, but encouraging them to attack anyone in
future who disagrees with them, or worse - in other words, they can end up doing
the same thing as terrorists today choose to do when things don't go 'their
way'. This is definitely not teaching young people to respect the rights of
others. Sorry, but this overload of unbalanced emotionalism for the people
murdered has gone right over the top - of course it's a horrible thing that has
happened, but we all still have the total legal and Constitutional right of free
speech and opinion - end of story!
Frasing anning should be kicked out of parliament. Far Right wing loons like him
that preach nothing but hate should not be given a platform to voice their hate
As for egg boy....good job!
Well their was an egg thrown at Julia Gilliard when she was PM, happened in
Western Australia and that guy got charged. Assault is Assault no matter what
age. Don't agree with the removal of Anning the people will decide that at the
next Senate election, free speech is apparently still alive and well in
I believe that both are needing to be censured at the very least. Where were
Senator Anning's security team that this boy got close enough to him to launch
his egg attack??? Senator Anning inflamed the current Islamophobic rage by his
comments, yes he may be entitled to his opinion BUT he represents his electors
some of whom my be Muslims. Putting a young man in a headlock is an
overreaction by his security staff, he didn't have any firearms and obviously
didn't have any more eggs (or if he did they could easily be removed).
I don’t believe in respect your elders just because they are older. You
respect me and I will respect you. Respect isn’t a one way stream it goes both
ways. But I do believe both should be punished as for the headlock and extreme
force to restrain the kid was un necessary.
What happened to his Security team? They should have stopped it before it
started. Seriously Youth of today have no bloody respect what so ever and there
lies the problem! I grew up respecting my Elders and would not DARE do what he
did. Respect is not a matter of entitlement, respect should as previously be
taught to children as it use to be pure and simple regardless of station or
position you respect people! You don't have to like them but you should respect
them. Maybe Frazer should not have hit the lil shit his parents should have but
the lil brat did get what he deserved.
Respect has to be earned not just given because someone is older. How can you
respect this man. Anning is quite repulsive in what he states and does not
represent the majority of the voters or younger people of this country.
I do not agree that the lad should have hit him with an egg and I am sure he
will be charged with assault but you have to agree the response from the older
bigger men was aggressive. They obviously are not very good at their jobs
either for this lad to get that close. They also have extremist views. I do
not think name calling the young man is right either nor such an extreme
I grew up respecting my elders also but I was also taught to question what I
thought was not right and I have taught my children the same. I repeat, respect
is earned and is not a given right.
Both should be punished, because both committed assaults. The senator's thugs
should be punished for their assaults also.
Hey guys -- why should a senator be entitled to respect just because he has been
elected? He should be judged by what he does and says, and this guy deserves
contempt not respect. Does Trump deserve respect? Same thing. President and
senator are equally disgusting jerks who incite violence.
Thank god he didn't have a knife or a gun in his possession. He needs to be
jailed for what he did. The guy that headlocked him should get the accolades. He
risked his own life and could have been saving others lives. Anning is a creep
but we don't have enough chooks to produce the quantity of eggs needed to egg
every person who has a difference of opinion in this country. Jail the little
shit and put him on a register. If you see him at a concert, hit him with
something. Bottle, shoe, whatever you feel like. He did.
Both. People don't walk around with eggs in their pockets unless they intend to
use them, so I think perhaps the boy had planned to egg the man for publicity
even though he didn't really know exactly what he was going to say. The Senator
gave him a couple of slaps with his open palm (not punches), which I think is a
way any number of people would retaliate in that situation. Perhaps the
headlock was a bit of over-reaction, but they probably didn't know what else the
boy had in his pocket and what else he was planning to do. I understood that
the Police said that there were no charges laid against the boy, so why would he
have legal fees? It is good that he plans to donate the money to charity
This boy set it up as a video for social media, I saw several views of the
incident, he was standing behind Str Anning and made sure he had his phone
positioned perfectly before slapping the egg onto Anning's head. Maybe
entertainment for his mates because he didn't really appear to be paying
attention to Anning's speech.
Both, just because we don't like the Senator does not mean that we can condone
the act, it's it physical violence. The Senator should not have continued to
punch the boy. The boy should not have been in the headlock after he was
The kid is just a kid .... BUT he clearly does not have any respect for others.
He's also a coward. Until today I didn't know who the hell S. Anning was. I
don't blame him for retaliating ... I think I would have done the same, but in
an ideal world I maybe would not have continued to retaliate .... that's in an
ideal / perfect world ... we humans are not perfect! As for the kid being
put in a headlock .... these are the times we live in .... 17 year old's aren't
babies, they are physically strong, young adults, they can be bloody
dangerous, especially if they have been radicalized by extremists. I wish I
had my 17 year old's vitality and physical body back. Between 16 & 25 I was
unstoppable .... but I did NOT creep up on politicians from behind, and scare
the crap out of of them by breaking an egg on their head. The kid is 95%
at fault, if he was my kid, he'd be grounded and made to apologise.
Sorry Ulysses, dont agee, 17 is no longer a boy, if he can plan an
attack..... sounds like the kid is a product of our abysmal education system
which is more interested in safe spaces,, and dummies and diapers for the poor
children in their classes..
It was assualt... and that is how people who assult get treated...
but he will get off and will end up a spoilt rich boy as he will keep the money
and will probably say it is to compensate for his pain and suffering,,,,.. He
should sue which ever uni he is going to for producing a moron
If people think Senator Frazer Anning, is being both Racist and Islam phobic,
They should 1. Write a letter to their local Federal member asking he be removed
and cc. to Federal Parliament,
and 2. sign the petition asking he be removed as we Australians Hold our
Parliamentary Senators to a high standard.
In regard to the 17 year old boy who egged him, Assault is Assault he should be
charged as an adult, what everyone who thinks, ohh, the poor boy he is an adult
and should be charged as an adult. because he broke the law.
Freedom of speech and opinion is a total legal and Constitutional RIGHT for all
Australians and New Zealanders, Americans and other western countries. There
has been NO legal offence on the senator's part. If we are stripped of these
rights we will be open to be manipulated by anyone and anything that crosses our
I like your post Solomon .... but half way ... the latter half. 17 year olds
are NOT poor "boys" ... or "girls" ... they are young adults. Add 1 year to
their age, & they are legally Adults, able to get a mortgage, consume alcohol,
join the Armed Services and defend our country. At 17 ... or less now I think
... they start on getting their driver's licences, this kid assaulted a person
.... I absolutely agree assault is assault, if he had done that to an Ambo, or a
Copper, or a Nurse, or you or I, he'd be charged ..... there is NO EXCUSE for
him doing that to a Politician ... they are people too, regardless of their
views or political persuasions.
There should never be racist Senators in government we have too many, then he
went off to a gun show after that hate speech. He even insulted the PM, the boy
should not have been violently tackled that was was over done. He was no threat
Annings assault on the boy he should be charged.
Anning is already being dealt with for his comments. The kid only did it for the
likes/social media recognition. Senator shouldn't have punched the kid but too
bad, it wouldn't have happened if he didn't instigate.
Bottom line is that they both crossed a line, I find it astounding that our
notoriously left leaning media are supporting this boy who at the end of the
day, broke the law. Any one who thinks that his behaviour was acceptable is
living a lie themselves. I would not condone the comments made by the senator,
nor his retaliation to the attack, but at the end of the day, it was just that,
an attack. On the one hand, people state that tolerance is critical in our
modern world, but those same people then launch in to a totally intolerant
barrage of abuse because they feel "THEY" are justified. Newsflash folks, thats
'A' grade hypocracy.
Bottom line is that Mr Anning is a mature man and a senator at that. It is Mr
Anning from whom we should expect a shining example of professional conduct.
Sadly he conducted himself like a common thug. Conduct NOT fitting for senator.
I support the boy. Throwing a egg is not an assault it is a graphic and quick
expression of strong feelings.It is fitting for a young boy. There is 0 harm to
anyone as a result of having an egg in their face. There is potential serious
harm resulting from being punched in the head. TWICE!
No, the senator merely spoke his own personal opinion - and that is the LEGAL
and CONSTITUTIONAL right of ALL Australians, and thank God for it. There are
those who are trying to eradicate these rights but when they do, be prepared for
total control over all citizens by government and whoever else wishes to use it.
You don't realise the importance of these rights, primadonna.
That disrespectful young boy did not get punched in the head at all - as Mr
Anning said he got a slap in the face something his mother probably should have
done years ago and I totally agree, he showed no respect for an adult and a
Senator to boot. Sadly this is the common thread with most teenagers these
days, no respect for anybody, think they know everything, they get away with
breaking the law, committing crimes, getting multiple slaps on the wrist and
warnings from the Children's Court every time they appear, protesting when they
should be at school, the list goes on and on, no wonder our society is what it
is today, shameful! Certainly not enough parents acting like parents and
dishing out some good old fashioned discipline, too many parents wanting to be
their kids "best friend" not a parent or role model. I applaud Mr Anning for
putting this kid in his place, I would be mortified if any child of mine behaved
so disrespectfully either in or out of the public eye, having an egg smashed in
your head is a physical assault and insult - Mr Anning's response of slapping
him across the face should be interpreted as "How dare you insult and disrespect
me!!" Totally support Mr Anning in this instance.
Two wrongs don't make a right. As much as I would dearly dearly love to crack a
few eggs on that idiot's stupid ugly head, its just not ok. It was definitely
overkill with how many grown men took him down. I Just hope Anning gets kicked
out of politics and then maybe struck by lightning.
I agree with Paula ignore Anning he will go away. It is not right for the boy
to do this and shows lack of respect even though the other party does not
deserve respect. Two wrongs do not make a right. The next thing people will be
doing it all over Australia if the boy gets away with it. There are plenty of
politicians that I can think of that people could do this too.
Since when do we attack people we don't agree with? Aren't we all becoming a
little violent? Fraser Anning should simply be ignored. He is there by default
and won't be there after the election. He is a waste of space, but why demean
yourself by egging him. I wouldn't approve of my children doing anything like
it. I neither saw or heard what Anning said and all the egging did was bring it
to everyone's attention. What better result for Anning than having everyone
talking about him and what he said. The very best way to treat people such as
him is to ignore them. Don't give him oxygen or air space.
Well his balls were as big as those eggs he smashed on that Aholes head. Ahole
is entitled to his opinion, but so is egg boy, Ahole is a public official, egg
boy isnt, he is a kid that is so tough it took 5 grown ass males to hold him
Who is the punk now, the world loves egg boy and so do I.
Well said, Ngapera. Finally someone with sound mind unpolluted by the idiocy of
pollitical correctness.It is beyond me how anyone can equate an egg in the face
by a boy with full on fist assault by a mature man bearing the title of
Wow, so many like minded people on here rather than Facebook. I can’t believe
the amount of people saying yay about the young boys actions. It’s not ok for
the senator to be a senator with those beliefs, ha can have them but he should
not be allowed to represent the people of Australia. Or is it ok that he hit the
boy. But it not ok for the boy to smash an egg on his head either. That’s the
whole point isn’t it. Don’t incite violence! What is this world coming too,
when you make this opinion of peace instead of violence, and people troll you
for believing in basic decency. It’s doing my head in.
That kid is nothing but a little shit with no respect.
He's not hero of mine!
An absolute embarrassment. If he was my child I would take him to jail
He is showing that he is just as intolerant as the gunman in NZ because he
doesn't respect other people's right to FREEDOM of SPEECH, FREEDOM of OPINION,
and FREEDOM of BELIEF that we can still exercise here in Australia!!!
Both are in the wrong, Anning for taking the law into his own hands, and the
boy for breaking the egg on Anning's head. If the boy was not restrained, he
would have run away, a coward, not willing to accept responsibility for his
actions. Anning, a Senator for Queensland, should have known better, a Senator,
a leader in our democratic society, hitting the boy twice. Throw them both in
First of all, I think Anning should be removed from Parliament. I don't think
he should be punished for retaliating, because I think it is instinctive to
react. However, he would have probably have continued to attack the young man
if able. The young man did what a lot of people would have liked to do.
However, it is against the law, so maybe he should get a reprimand. The thugs
who subdued him were a little too enthusiastic and should be punished.
Why should the senator be removed from office simply because he observed his
LEGAL and CONSTITUTIONAL right to freedom of opinion and speech? The entire
event has become absurd! He has done NOTHING wrong. How would you feel if you
weren't allowed to say what YOU believe or think? It's what has given you the
right to even post your comment on this page!
Egg boy was in the wrong.
What I saw in the video was.-
After the egging and being struck by what appeared to be a glancing blow egg-
boy maintained an agressive posture,did not back away kept fimiing, and
appeared to attempt to retaliate to having been struck, but was rapidly
What did egg-boy expect “ oh, that’s OK , he is just a teenage little boy
