MOTIONS Q Society Fundraiser Senator DASTYARI (New South Wales—Deputy Opposition Whip in the Senate) (15:54): I move general business motion 215, standing in my name: That the Senate— (a) notes speakers at a Q Society of Australia Inc fundraiser in Sydney said "I can't stand Muslims", "The NSW Division of the Liberal Party is basically a gay club" and, in relation to ISIS, "They are not all bad, they do chuck pillow biters off buildings"; (b) notes the Government was represented at the fundraiser by the Member for Dawson; (c) rejects these comments which have no place in modern Australia or respectful political discourse; and (d) calls on all parliamentarians to repudiate such remarks and sentiments. I seek leave to make a short statement. The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute. Senator DASTYARI: I have been given 60 seconds to talk about the Australian far right. I do not need that long. They are a bunch of homophobic Islamophobic extremists. The only thing free in their speech is the nakedness of their hate. The multicultural Australia that we love is better than the white Australia that they desire. Senator McGRATH (Queensland—Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister) (15:55): Mr President, I seek leave to make a short statement. The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute. Senator McGRATH: The government condemns the remarks quoted in the motion but opposes this motion as it is factually incorrect. It is not correct to say the government was represented at this function by the member for Dawson. We are the most successful multicultural society in the world. Question put. The Senate divided.
