Fraser Anning blasts Islamic prayer at Anzac service as 'left-wing virtue-signalling'

Controversial Australian senator Fraser Anning has come out in force against the idea of a Muslim call to prayer being broadcast at an Anzac Day service.

The controversial right-wing senator tweeted his anger at the Titahi Bay RSA "using this sacred commemoration for our past dead heroes in world wars, for left wing virtue signalling."

The contentious comment comes less than a month after he made headlines for blaming the March 15 Christchurch terror attacks on the "immigration program that allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place".

The Senator's comments were universally condemned - including by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who called them "a disgrace".

In a five-tweet rant on Thursday, Anning said the idea to proadcast the call to prayer at an Anzac ceremony was "absolutely shameful".

Anning said the inclusion of the prayer was a scheme by "globalist traitors trying to silence anyone who dare speak out against their agenda."

"Freedom of speech must be defended!" he said.

The Titahi Bay RSA was flooded with threats after proposing a reading from the Koran to follow their dawn service on April 25.

They later decided to remove the prayer from the dawn service, and it will instead be said at the conclusion of the 10am service.

In his tweets, Anning added that Europeans have a right to "defend our people and our way of life".

"We have the right to preserve our ethno-cultural identity. Europeans are heading towards becoming a minority in their own countries around the world."
