Where do you draw your arbitrary line? Is punching a politician ok if you disagree with them?
The other side to that is where do you draw the line between mere disagreement and threat/danger?

The "security" thugs who jumped on the 17yo doing the egging need to be investigated. They put him in a choke hold.

What's that supposed to mean? Are you saying assassination of a politician is ok if you perceive them as a danger?

I'm against all violence to all politicians, no matter how unpleasant their views. If we say throwing an egg and slapping someone on the back of the head (just like in the video) is ok, then maybe a punch is ok, and it won't take long for this to escalate into someone being shot.

I like all these people saying being egged isn’t a big deal. Wonder whether they’d be saying that if it was them being egged by s random
Stranger. Wonder whether they’d be saying this if it were a politician they liked.

I’ve been egged by a stranger as well as plenty of times at school. It wasn’t a big deal.

What if the senator was Vegan?

Smashing a chicken egg on him would be an attack; not only on his person, but on his beliefs, his liberty and his entire way of life! :mob:


The senator deserved it for not playing the political game correctly (knowing when to shut up) and the kid deserved a lick for thinking actions don't have consequences.

In some extreme circumstances, I think it could, hypothetically, be morally justified, yes. I certainly wouldn't morally condemn a gay Chechen who killed Ramzan Kadyrov, to give an obvious example.

Of course, it being justified wouldn't make it necessarily a good idea - there would still likely be plenty of pragmatic reasons not to do it.

Worth noting also that Anning only became a Senator as the result of a kind of loophole quirk in the Australian electoral system - only 19 people actually voted for him, and he literally quit the party that enabled him to be "elected" the moment he was sworn in.

The hen would not approve. They should just really vote him off. Better yet, recall or impeach or do whatever they could down under.
They can't. If there was really any way of removing Anning from his seat, it would have been done. He got in on a loophole, basically.

Very unfortunate then. Then perhaps a campaign should be done to measure or possible

There's an election in May, and Anning stands literally no chance of holding his seat, so no real point trying to mount a campaign to force him out at this point.

I guess you could say the egg met the egghead.

It wasn’t that unecessary, it’s a natural reaction.
(Original post by Andrew97)
I said punching somebody who attacks you is a natural reaction , I haven’t deviated from that.





Hitting somebody with an egg is a form of violence, albeit not serious.
You don't really make sense. You keep contradicting yourself.

Yes, hitting someone with an "egg" may be a form of violence but so is "punching" someone... Doesn't matter if it's a natural reaction or not...!

Violence is violence.
But what 'Fraser' said was cruel, heartless not to say totally unprofessional.
It's ridiculous that he said such things with him being a public figure.

So yes, for his "attack" on Muslims/immigration... My "natural reaction" would be to throw an "egg" too.
Tough s*** :cool:
I can't control it, it was a natural reaction. (Shrugs shoulder)

How is it not a natural reaction? How would you react if you were unexpectedly attacked from behind (in any way)? Would you just stand there?

Can't believe he's actually being criticised for defending himself, and for having security hold the attacker down while police come. You're all deluded.
He's not being criticized. He's being questioned for assuming actions don't have consequences (Moments)

He wrongfully wrote a whole document of utter garbage, made it public... With no facts/proof of what he was saying. I'd say that's a personal "attack" on a person's belief/culture (whatever).
It's not right at all. He's wrong to think that he wasn't going to have to answer for his unthinkable actions. Utter fool I say.

No. But there's a big difference between throwing an egg and a brick.

An egg is nothing compared to what others may have done.

He should suck it up...
All actions have consequences.

No, but you implied it was a reasonable response to violence in a certain situation (i.e: when getting attacked). When in fact it's not. It may be a natural response, doesn't mean it should be allowed / considered to be correct.
