Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and all major political parties on Wednesday condemned a speech by a minor senator who used the term "final solution" in calling for a revival of a "White Australia" restrictive immigration policy.
Labor senator Anthony Chisholm said it was surprising she pushed ahead with her plebiscite legislation given her comments.
But an appallingly racist diatribe, by a senator who not one in a thousand Australians would have heard of, on Wednesday brought nearly all the parliament together to reassert some core values of Australia's policy.
Cabinet minister Mitch Fifield said the speech was deeply regrettable, telling Nine Network: "I thought we had moved beyond this in the parliament".
She said: "We have called for people coming here to give their undivided loyalty to this country - that you be Australian and proud of this country and abide by the laws".
An Essential poll in April reported that 64 per cent of respondents believe immigration over the past 10 years is too high.
"To describe the so-called safe schools and gender fluidity garbage being peddled in schools as cultural Marxism is not a throwaway line, but a literal truth", Senator Anning said. Anning was elected on the One Nation ticket before switching to Katter's Australian Party. Derryn Hinch, a fellow member of the opposition, called it "Pauline Hanson on steroids".
"So why would anyone want to bring more of them here?"

It could merely be a way for the foreign president to gather support for his regime among Turkish nationalists. Earlier on Wednesday, Erdogan spoke on the phone with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the Turkish presidency.
Bomb threat made at Boston Globe after editorial condemning Trump
The Globe's editorial page proposed last week that newspapers respond in unison to the escalating attacks. But, he said , the newspaper values independence - a sentiment that was shared by the Los Angeles Times .
A member of the minor Katter's Australian Party, Anning was unapologetic about using the same phrase Nazi leaders used in planning the Holocaust during World War II.
Anning's speech largely focused on his calls to limit Muslim immigration. Muslims account for less than three percent of Australia's population, census data shows.
"I don't regret anything, I am not going to apologize or regret anything that I say", he said. For people like us, any time we dare express a public view, on anything from plastic bags to decriminalising abortion or banning greyhound racing, it inevitably results in a barrage of racism and questions about our right to be in this country.
She said that although she was not present in the chamber when Anning made his speech the day before, she watched it from her office and was "appalled".
The non-apology was followed up with an appearance on Sydney's 2GB Radio, where he told host Alan Jones that Muslim immigration needed to end because some of the immigrants could be terrorists. Only time will tell if this speech will be as monumental.
Speaking to reporters later, Anning said he had "always been a big supporter of the Jewish community and they know that".
"It is ironic that those on the left such as the Greens and some Labor who seek to criticize me are the same people who refused to support my efforts to stop Australia funding the Palestinian Authority who finance terrorist attacks against innocent Israeli women and children", the statement read.
