She’s back and it seems she’s just as controversial as ever with a number of politicians walking out on Pauline Hanson during her parliamentary speech last night.

Reiterating her 1996 speech, Ms Hanson said Australia was in danger of being swamped by Muslims – almost identical to what she said about Asians in the late nineties – and took aim at single mothers.

“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.

“It’s about belonging, respect and commitment to fight for Australia,” she said.

“Australia had a national identity before federation and it had nothing to do with diversity and everything to do with belonging.

“Indiscriminate and aggressive multiculturalism have caused crime to escalate and social cohesion to decline.

“Too many of us live in fear of terrorism.

“Muslims are prominent in organised crime, anti-social behaviour is rampant and … surveys find that in neighbourhoods of Muslim settlement … Australians, in general, are more fearful.

“Islam cannot have a significant presence in Australia if we are to live in an open, secular and cohesive society.

“We have seen the destruction it is causing around the world. We will be treated as second class citizens with second class rights if we continue with the, ‘She’ll be right mate’ attitude.”

It was at this point that Greens leader Richard Di Natale and his colleagues got up and marched out of the room.

“Racism has no place in Parliament but that is what we have just heard from Senator Hanson. I stand by those people hurt by her words,” he tweeted, adding he has “obligation to call out racism wherever it occurs.”

Ms Hanson also put mothers on welfare on notice, saying they should only receive payments for one child and not more.

“If they have more there will be no increase to the welfare payment get a job and start taking responsibility for your own actions,” she said.

She also targeted Family Law, saying women make “frivolous claims” and that unless there were changes “we will continue to see murders out of sheer frustration”.

What are your thoughts on Pauline’s comments?

Do you agree with her on all fronts? Or is she out of line?

    so! the greens walked out? that friends is the VERY BEST THING they could possibly do! AND STAY OUT! what a bunch of morons they truly are and I am left to wonder (seriously) how anyone could even possibly think of casting a vote in their direction. Go for them Pauline..bigger things are in store for you in the next few years. YOU are voicing what MOST australians are voicing. Your voter base will increase dramatically at the next state and federal election. Both the major parties are NOT, and continue to NOT listen to the people.

      Well said!!! Go Pauline, we need more people like you who are willing to stand up for what you believe in. We’ve
      been forced to remain quiet for fear of reprisals and labels.

      Im glad she has the guts to say what alot of Australians are thinking, we are people who welcome strangers into our country but please dont try to change us, we like our country just the way it is thankyou
      If you dont like it well there is the door
      Thankyou Pauline

    • Joy Anne Bourke  

      Yes so correct . Pauline is not racist and many Australians are sick of Pollies ignoring the Australia people and what they are thinking. Go Pauline

    • Eileen  

      So the greens walked out ? If only they would keep on walking.. Go Pauline!

    • Ros  

      I agree with Pauline, about time people listened!

    It’s called democracy that’s why Pauline is able to speak out. The government inform us that foreign ownership in Australia is not great but they have not isolated the ownership of farm land. If you add in urban housing it of course skews the statistics.

    PAULINE IS DOING WHAT THE PEOPLE OF AUSTRALIA WANT HER TO DO, THAT IS WHY SHE GOT BACK INTO PARLAMENT. PAULINE LISTENS TO THE AUSSIE AND THEIR NEED. GO PAULINE GO…….

    • Heather Jennings  

      When will our politicians listen to what we the people want. Look at the Muslim country’s all a disaster. Malaysia has been taken over by them. No thank you. Rather have China taking us over. Do gooders we have had enough. Look at the gratitude they showed France and Belgium. Start listening or get voted out

    • Joy Anne Bourke  

      YES AGREE GO PAULINE

      • Maureen Smith  

        She is not doing what this Australian wants.

        Everyone is entitled to their opinion and everyone has the right to disagree with that opinion.

        Ms Hanson needs to check her facts before she makes the claims she does.

  4. Paul  

    She has stated many times what most Australians secretly think but are too fearful to openly say.
    She has the courage to call it as it is, rather than to cower to the banks, corporates, multi-national industrialists and war-supporting businesses.
    Ironically, for all the criticism she gets, the two mainstream parties (mainly Liberal) have later on voiced similarly aligned thoughts and ideology.
    As a shaker and mover of politics, she deserves both the resistance and support she gets.
    If we were to look into the future its likely her thoughts will have become mainstream population accepted values. Fortunately and unfortunately Australia hasnt degenerated into such a pathetic state yet.

    Sadly our birth rate is inadequate as is the case around the world in many countries. Not however in the Muslim population. They will outnumber us in the very near future. The mild and uneducated Muslims will be led by the more radical and we will all have to live under Sharia. Thank you Pauline.

  6. Susan Shoreman  

    They are all sticking their heads in the sand. What Pauline Hanson is saying makes complete sense. Everyone knows it, they are just too scared to admit it. Politically correctness has gone too far. We all know it. It’s time to stop. We have to act like a western country. The same way as if we are in a middle eastern country we have to act like they would. Not hard to understand. “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” as the saying goes. Stop pussy footing around these cultural issues and worrying about who you are going to offend.

  7. Adrian Collings  

    You dont have to agree with all her views but even if you agree with only one thing you should defend her right to say it. She has been called racist for mentioning things that most of us agree with but dont have the guts to say. Using parliamentary privilege she can get away with her statements and we should all listen and support her.

  8. Heather Jennings  

    Greens will never get my vote again. That’s why she was voted in she is listening to the people of Australia. Labor and Liberal need to lift their game as well. Freedom of speech is our the people of this country’s right. Wake up we are in Debt and we’re is the money going to come from to have more people on welfare. More taxes or more cuts

  9. Jude  

    Everyone is too scared to say what they are thinking…It is a reflection on our politically correct society…lets just stick our heads in the sand and bring them out when its too late…look at England France etc
    As for the Greens…early lunch…afternoon tea?….has anyone ever walked out on a Green senator delivering drivel?

  10. Manny  

    She is spot on with her criticism. the weak senators that walked out should stay out. WAKE UP AUSTRALIA!

  12. I am with you Pauline 150%.
    I am migrant myself from South America and I embresed Australian culture from start.
    I will not like my kid’s family became Asians in the future….this is AUSTRALIA….please to all of us..defend our beautiful Country.
    Thanks Pauline, you are our God.
    To our Government please control the Real State buyers and don’t let the Chinese control OUR MARKET.

      About time somebody stood up to protect our way of life . We have only seen the beginning of what will be as numbers increase so will the demands . As a small percentage of the population as it is , the demands started with offence taken with nativity scenes ,christmas carols , wanting to ban people from swimming because they want exclusive rights for Muslim women on specific days & the list goes on . As far as the greens walking out let them , they are as intolerant as they say Pauline Hanson is .
