Senator blasts Peter FitzSimons’ ‘hypocrisy’ towards Jacinta Price
Senator Hollie Hughes has blasted newspaper columnist Peter FitzSimons for his “extraordinary hypocrisy” at Aboriginal Senator Jacinta Price.
Ms Price alleged newspaper columnist Peter FitzSimons accused her of “giving racists a voice” during an interview last week over the phone.
Senator Price has refused to support the Albanese Government’s Indigenous Voice to Parliament so far.
Peter FitzSimons has denied all allegations made by Senator Price.
NSW Liberal Senator Hollie Hughes told Ray Hadley Mr FitzSimons’ actions reek of “hypocrisy”.
“A wealthy white man from the North Shore of Sydney is condemning an Indigenous woman from the Northern Territory and calling her basically a racist for not being with his point of view,” she said.
“It is just blatant hypocrisy and all Jacinta is doing … is calling out all of these symbolic gestures as opposed to things that are making a difference to the Indigenous community.”
