'You Terrorist': Sickening Racist Attack On Labor MP Caught On Camera

Senator considering legal action

'You Terrorist': Sickening Racist Attack On Labor MP Caught On Camera

A sickening racist attack against Labor MP Sam Dastyari at a Melbourne pub has been caught on camera. 

The men who claim to be part of a small, far-right group called Patriot Blue continuously heckle the Iranian-born senator as he tries to buy a drink and sit down. 

"You terrorist, you little monkey," one yells. 


The group, who have been photographed with right-wing white nationalists like the United Patriots Front, tell the New South Wales senator to go back to Iran and accuse him of taking money from China. 

They later posted the video on Facebook to boast about it. 


Victoria Police confirmed they haven't received a report about the incident, however Dastyari isn't ruling out legal action. 

"I'm keeping my options open," he told Nine. "What I worry about is the 15 year old in the school yard who's copping it and doesn't have the ability I have to expose it. 

"But this is the stuff that's going on everywhere." 


Opposition Leader Bill Shorten and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull have both condemned the cowardly attack. 

While MP Tim Watts has won praise for his response to the question "what race is Islam?". 

"What race is dickhead?" he says, sticking his head in front of the camera.

While Toll Group has confirmed it's looking into whether any of the men are current employees.
