While the world is in mourning over the Christchurch shooting, in which a lone white nationalist killed 50 people at two mosques in New Zealand, a politician is blaming Muslim immigrants for the attack.
Fraser Anning, an Australian senator, took advantage of Friday's tragedy to push his agenda of hate.
He released an offensive statement saying:
"The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place."
Fortunately, a young vigilante, hailed as Australia's hero, told Anning to STFU with an egg.
Teenager Will Connolly, 17, became an internet hero when he thwacked the vile senator on the back of his head with the yolk grenade in front of reporters.
After the crack heard around the world, bodyguards scrambled to take down our intrepid yolkster after the politician swung at him with a left hook, twice.

The anti-white supremacist hero, now dubbed "EggBoi," was detained and released without charge.
Connolly recorded a video message about a lesson learned.
"Don't egg politicians. You get tackled by 30 bogans at the same time," he said, using a derogatory slang referring to unsophisticated Australians.
"I learnt the hard way."
"This was the moment I felt so proud to exists [sic] as a human being. Let me inform all you guys, Muslims are not terrorists and terrorism has no religion. All those who consider Muslims a terrorist community have empty heads like Anning."
People praised the young hero for his tactic in combating the enemy and for demonstrating remarkable restraint after being tackled.

A GoFundMe page was set up for Connolly to cover his "legal fees" and for "more eggs" with a goal of $50,000 for the 50 victims killed in the Christchurch terrorist attack.
So far, the fund's total exceeded the goal by $1,500, and Connolly plans to give most of the money towards the victims.
