The Labor MP told the men they were"embarrassing themselves

Speaking to Karl Stefanovic on the Today program on Thursday, Dastyari said of the incident:"It makes you feel small, it makes you feel awful".

A group of men confronted the Labor politician on Wednesday night, calling him a "terrorist" and a "little monkey" and telling him to return to his native Iran.

One Nation rejected Senator Dastyari's portrayal of the incident.

"All of this is the rise of the radical right in this country, it is the rise of One Nation right", Mr Dastyari said.

"He's played up this whole thing".

I don't normally like to post about these people - it gives them oxygen - but tonight I'm making an exception. The men from the far-right group spewed hate with racial slurs while racially profiling Dastyari.

Suicide attacks have accelerated in the southwestern region of Pakistan, endangering a planned economic corridor with China. After being promoted, Hamid Shakeel served as SSP operations, investigation, traffic and Qilla Abdullah in Balochistan.

In response, Stan and Roadshow Productions issued a statement distancing itself from the group's actions, and notifying that it has instructed law firm Gilbert & Tobin "to take appropriate legal action in relation to the infringement of the Patriot Blue trademark, and use of the Stan name on Facebook".

"Mr Erikson does not even believe his own definition of racism, later saying: "(Senator Dastyari) called me a redneck which is actually a racist slur against white people".

"I think he's playing the victim a little bit".

Dastyari tells the "racists" to go away, who respond by asking, "What race is Islam?"

The men who ambushed Labor Senator Sam Dastyari at a Melbourne pub are in legal trouble.

"You are racist rednecks".

Veterans Day events in Washington County

An Australian senator was called a "monkey" and a "terrorist" by racist bullies who posted footage of their abuse online. "Honestly, I think you guys are a bunch of racists", Dastyari told them, "I don't have time for you".

'Why don't you go back to Iran, you terrorist?'. "You are embarrassing yourself".

In a Q&A session at the pub with fellow Labor MP Tim Watts, Senator Dastyari said he was regularly subjected to similar incidents because he was a Muslim.

Malcolm Turnbull said there was no place for racial vilification in Australia. "That is because our society is built on a foundation of mutual respect. It should have zero tolerance for racist abuse like this", the prime minister told Seven. "What is this country coming to when you can not go out for a meal without being abused by racist idiots", he told Seven.

One of the Islamophobe's was apparently wearing a uniform for Toll, an Australian logistics company.

Senator Dastyari earlier on Thursday complained he hadn't heard from Toll after going public about the Wednesday incident.
