When White Nationalists Get DNA Tests That Reveal African Ancestry

When White Nationalists Get DNA Tests That Reveal African AncestryThe white-nationalist forum Stormfront hosts discussions on a wide range of topics, from politics to guns to The Lord of the Rings. And of particular and enduring interest: genetic ancestry tests. For white nationalists, DNA tests are a way to prove their racial purity. Of course, their results don’t always come back that way. And how white nationalists try to explain away non-European ancestry is rather illuminating of their beliefs.

Uproar in Australian Parliament after firebrand anti-immigrant MP Pauline Hanson wears burka to question time

Uproar in Australian Parliament after firebrand anti-immigrant MP Pauline Hanson wears burka to question timePauline Hanson, the Australian anti-migrant firebrand MP, has been condemned for an “appalling” stunt in which she wore a burka in Parliament as part of her push to ban it, prompting a rare standing ovation from MPs in support of a speech denouncing her. The controversial MP, who leads the One Nation party, was widely condemned after she attended the Senate chamber in a black Islamic body covering, prompting gasps of shock from fellow MPs. As she removed the covering, she said: “This is not what should belong in this Parliament.” Senator Pauline Hanson wears a burqa in the Senate chamber at Parliament House in Canberra Credit: REUTERS She then asked George Brandis, the attorney-general:  “In light of the national security of this nation will you work to ban the burka in Australia?” Mr Brandis responded: “No.” During an emotional session, Mr Brandis received a standing ovation from the opposition – and applause from his fellow Coalition MPs  – after he delivered a stinging rebuke of Ms Hanson.

Sam Dastyari, a Labor MP, said in a tweet that Ms Hanson was a “disgrace” and the Senate had become a “circus”. “George Brandis was just brilliant in the chamber,” he wrote. “Just brilliant. Strongest I have ever heard him.” Ms Hanson rose to notoriety during her first term in Parliament in the 1990s after she claimed that the country risked being swamped by Asian migrants. But she has since turned her attention to attacking the nation’s Muslims. Well deserved, and something you will not see again.

She later said she had considered wearing the burka into the chamber for months, saying it was “really horrible” and “uncomfortable”. “I just felt cut off from the rest of the world,” she said. The Coalition and opposition have rejected calls for a ban on the burka. Burka bans: The countries where Muslim women can’t wear veils
