Pauline Hanson has clashed with Dawn host David Koch in a fiery debate on One Nation’s “anti-Muslim rhetoric” following Friday’s terrorist assault in Christchurch.
The Queensland senator was being interviewed in her common phase with fellow crossbencher Derryn Hinch when Koch requested if she felt her celebration was complicit within the bloodbath that killed 50 individuals at two Christchurch mosques.
“This (accused Christchurch shooter Brenton Tarrant) terrorism manifesto almost reads like One Nation’s immigration and Muslim policy,” he stated.

“The anti-Muslim rhetoric that you espouse constantly here, that you did in your maiden speech when you came to parliament. Do you understand?”
Ms Hanson responded by expressing sympathy for the victims of the Christchurch assault earlier than rapidly returning to topic of Muslim immigration and referencing the Lindt Cafe Siege in 2014.
“I feel for the families that have lost lives,” she stated.
“We have problems but you’ve actually got to discuss it and debate the issues. Why do we have terrorist attacks in this country? Why is it happening around the world?”
