Dastyari called 'terrorist' at Melbourne pub

Dastyari called 'terrorist' at Melbourne pub”

In the Patriot Blue video the men call Mr Dastyari a "terrorist" soon after they approach him.

Video of men identifying themselves as "working class patriots" heckling the Iranian-born senator, calling him a "terrorist" and "little monkey" at the VU Bar in Footscray was posted to the Patriot Blue Facebook group last night.

Of course Pauline Hanson wasn't going to take that accusation lying down.

"They are the sickening face of white nationalists in this country". It's the rise of the One Nation right.

"He's played up this whole thing".

The men involved in the incident filmed it, and uploaded to the Patriot Blue Facebook page.

"Sam's a strong bloke, he's got a thick skin, he's been in politics for a long time", Mr Erikson told ABC radio on Thursday.

'He labels anyone who he disagrees with as rednecks which itself is a racist term, ' Mr Erikson told Daily Mail Australia. "I think he's playing the victim a little bit".

However, One Nation Leader Pauline Hanson refused to condemn the attack and said Senator Dastyari used the incident to create publicity for his recently-released book.

"You are racist rednecks".

"Everywhere I go I get white nationalists follow me".

"I think he's a waste of space and I think he should be a comedian".

"Sad you call yourselves Australians".

Fellow Labor MP Tim Watts interjects: "What race is a dickhead?" "That is because our society is built on a foundation of mutual respect". He keeps his cool, goes back to his group and tells them he doesn't deal with racists.

Labor leader Bill Shorten echoed Turnbull's sentiment, saying he was "disgusted" by the behaviour of the men, and despite it Dastyari remains in "good spirits".

The member of the far-right group was wearing a high-vis Toll Group shirt in the video.

Senator Dastyari said he was "amazed" he hadn't personally heard from the logistics and transport company about the incident. "It should have zero tolerance for racist abuse like this", he told Seven.

Mr Erikson said he was trying to "draw attention to (Dastyari's) dual citizenship". "They went to a bar and didn't even stay for a drink". "I believe that everyone has a right to freedom of speech".

In 2014 Mr Eriksen avoided jail time after pleading guilty to stalking a Melbourne Rabbi after making a number of racially-motivated phone calls.

He was sentenced to a 12-month community correction order.

In 2015, he took part in a mock beheading outside Bendigo Council to protest against a planned mosque in the western Victorian city.
