Victoria's parliament has unanimously passed two motions condemning Queensland Senator Fraser Anning's "toxic bigotry" in the wake of the Christchurch terrorist attack.
Premier Daniel Andrews led the charge with a condemnation motion which was widely supported in the lower house on Wednesday.
"I desire to move by leave, that this house condemns Senator Fraser Anning for his hateful, dangerous and divisive response to the Christchurch mosques terror attack," Mr Andrews said as he proposed the move.
It was swiftly followed by Opposition Leader Michael O'Brien's similar motion which called for Senator Anning's resignation.
"I move this house, one, condemns Senator Fraser Anning for his contemptible, hate-filled response to the Christchurch terrorist attack and his attempt to divide our community on the basis of religion. (And) two, calls on Senator Anning to resign. And three, reaffirms Victoria as an inclusive and multicultural society," Mr O'Brien said.
Mr Andrews said the uncommon agreement was due to the need to denounce, condemn and call out Senator Anning's words and behaviour.
"We are as one when it comes to making a very clear point that there is no place for toxic bigotry in our civilised society," he said.
"Nor is it acceptable to dress up hate speech as free speech."
Mr O'Brien echoed the sentiment.
"We will not be divided by those who seek to divide us whether they use weapons or words, and words can be weapons."
Greens MP for Prahran, Sam Hibbins, also rose in support of the motions, urging "the start of a political discourse that reflects the society we all want to live in".
The firm stance comes just two days after Senator Anning refused to back down from his widely reviled comments about the New Zealand mosque massacres.
"Unfortunately, that sort of violence is already here, usually it's being perpetrated by the Muslims attacking the infidels or Christians," Senator Anning said on Monday.
