自从新联邦参议员Fraser Anning在国会处女演讲后，各大媒体都给了他相当的曝光度。8月17日澳洲人报资深评论员Graham Richardson总结了各方的评论，他写到：这件事引起了整个国家的反对！各位达成共识、精神可嘉，特别是两大在朝和在野党的共识，这是这几年首次看到的！其实很多国会的新法案如果涉及国家利益和安全的法律，我们要提醒两大在朝和在野的政党要多多交流合作通过它，不要被一些没有什么人民代表性的小政党来操纵和威胁。同日的澳洲人报也有读者提出：Anning侥幸用19张票赢得这参议员的席位，是不是两大政党应该考虑修改参议员入选的方式？再说如果两大政党的领袖不再怂恿这些小政党借口言论自由而发表和煽动暴乱危害国家利益和安全的言论，这些少数的极右或极左人士就不敢乱煽风点火了。
不论是白人背景也好，欧裔、犹太裔、华裔、印裔、意大利裔、希腊裔这几个移民澳洲的大族裔来跟回教裔的移民比较一下，他们当中都有不良分子存在，都有不适应让他们移民来澳洲的坏人和恐怖分子在内。如果我们都应用公平公正、没有歧视的移民政策来衡量他们移民入境的要求，这样我们接受的移民将都会是有用的公民，也能变成良好优秀的公民。澳洲的成功建国史是一部成功移民史，如果只靠白人背景的澳洲人，澳洲就不会有今天这样的辉煌，成为这样为世界羡慕和赞许的国家，也不会有那么多各族人士要移民来此了。We are all Australians. Why should we discriminate against one another?.

Ever since Fraser Anning, the new Senator,, made his maiden speech in Parliament on 15/08/2018, he has received considerable publicity from the press. Graham Richardson, a senior commentator for The Australian newspaper on 17/08/2018, summed up well: "We are one nation oppose to Fraser Anning" .."He did manage to achieve a real spirit of bipartisanship in the Federal Parliament that has gone missing in the past few years..' To me it is praiseworthy, especially for the two major political parties. They should try to have more communication in the new bills that involve national interests and security. Any major proposed new Bill affecting the national interest and security should ideally be passed in a bipartisan way. Both major parties Coalition and Labor should cooperate more with each other to pass it, and not to be manipulated and threatened by small political parties with little popular representation. The Australian newspaper on the same day, pointed by a letter (Geoff Nickols, ACT) that Anning won that Senate seat with a mere 19 primary votes. He suggested that we should consider changing the way the Senate is elected. Moreover, if the leaders of the two major political parties no longer encourage the small parties to make and possible incite riots against the Australia's national interests and security, on the pretext of freedom of expression, the extreme right or the far left of these minorities will not dare to fan the fire. And we should not give people like Anning too much media attention.
I would like to stress that Australia's founding policy is to enable all citizens to have a sense of security, happiness, mutual respect, tolerance and help. And encourage the rule of law and work together to protect the values that we Australians are proud of. In addition, support the existing good policies including rational freedom of expression, a democratic constitutional system and an independent judiciary that is fair and impartial. Wouldnt it be nice to let the people of all ethnic groups live and work in peace and contentment?
The most controversial question now is whether Australia should continue to increase or reduce immigration. Should certain immigrants be restricted from coming ? In order to prevent undesirable from coming to Australia, should our immigration requirements be raised? Should the moral and criminal background of migrants be examined more closely and severely?
If we discuss and debate these issues properly, I believe that every reasonable Australian, including Hanson, Anning and others, will eventually see where the problem lies.
Whether White background migrants or all the other larger ethnic Australians - Europeans, Jews, Chinese, Indians, Italians, Greeks - compare with Muslim immigrants, they all have some small undesirable elements among them. There are bad people and terrorists alike seeking migration to Australia. If we use a fair and non-discriminatory immigration policy to measure and check their immigration requirements, the migrants we accept will be useful citizens and good citizens regardless of their ethnic background or religion. Australian history of successful nationhood is a history of successful immigration. If we only allow White migrants to migrate to Australia all these times, Australia would not be such a wonderful and beautiful multicultural country. It would not have been the envy and praise of the world as it is today. There would not have been so many people of over 150 nationalities and races who would have emigrated here today. We are all Australians. Why should we discriminate against one another?
