That the Senate—
a.affirms the right of every citizen to feel safe in their own home;
b.recognises the sad reality that the police cannot be everywhere at every time;
c.accepts that Australian citizens have the absolute right to defend themselves and their family from harm;
d.notes that, due to the failure of the current Government to restrict immigration from lawless Third World countries, criminal types are being allowed to come here and subsequently terrorise the Australian public with home invasions;
e.acknowledges the growing public outrage at Sudanese gang crime as expressed at the recent rally of concerned citizens at St Kilda; and
f.calls on the Commonwealth and state Governments to legislate Castle Doctrine into Australian law to allow Australian citizens the right to defend their families and homes with, up to and including, lethal force against Sudanese gangs and other criminals.
Keeping Australians safe is the government's first priority. The government takes its responsibility to protect the Australian community from serious and organised crime seriously, and has a number of initiatives in place to counter gang-related activity. This government works closely with its state and territory counterparts to detect, deter and disrupt serious and organised crime, including gang-related activity, while maintaining a non-discriminatory migration program.
Labor opposes unequivocally this motion, which is overtly and inexcusably racist. Labor deplores racism and condemns the senator in his attempt to legitimise the hateful and divisive views expressed at a white supremacist rally attended by the senator at Australian taxpayers' expense in Melbourne last year.
