British commentator Nigel Farage has clashed with a left-wing Australian protester outside CPAC in Sydney

British political commentator Nigel Farage was branded a “far-right scum” in an explosive confrontation with a left-wing protester after speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Sydney.

Mr Farage, best known as leader of the pro-Brexit party UKIP in Britain, was confronted by an angry young man after Saturday afternoon’s conference.

The man, who donned a black face mask, accused Mr Farage of being “racist, Islamophobic and antiqueer” while telling him “fascists are not welcome here”.

The commenter prompted the man to define fascism before the man replied, “far right scum like you”.

The couple argued for a few minutes, both struggling to get their point across while talking about each other.

British political commentator Nigel Farage was branded a “far-right scum” in an explosive confrontation with a left-wing protester after speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Sydney.

“People like you who talk about discrimination, who talk about prejudice, actually you are the ones with prejudice,” Mr Farage told the young man.

“You can’t have a debate with me without swearing and being insulting.”

He then accused the young man of not having a fight and asked him bluntly: “Are you morally superior?”.

“I respect your right to have a different opinion, but you cannot have a debate,” Mr Farage said.

The young man then replied that he was not there to debate but to protest.

“I think you should leave Sydney!” he shouted as the commentator walked away before chanting “racist bigots, anti-queer, fascists are not welcome here.”

Mr Farage laughed as he walked away, told the man he needed “real spiritual help,” and shared footage of the bizarre clash to his Twitter account.

“Just had a heated verbal argument with this left-wing protester. He was talking nonsense!’ he tweeted.

Mr Farage had previously taken aim at former Prime Minister Scott Morrison, calling him a “goodless coward” and saying Australian Conservative politicians have shown “a total lack of courage” in recent years.

Former Liberal Prime Minister Morrison has been “bullied” into joining the UN COP 26 targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions at the late 2021 meeting of global leaders in Glasgow, Farage said.

‘Come on COP 26, what was that about?’ he told Daily Mail Australia.

“You come up and are bullied by other world leaders for letting your country get involved with other world leaders without a proper debate, if that’s not cowardly then what is?”

Mr Farage said he was the “strange man on the global stage who needed courage”.

“It’s always amazing on the world stage how individual leaders are pushed into positions they didn’t really want.”

He said COP 26 was “proof” Mr Morrison was a “coward”.

Mr Farage said he did not believe Mr Morrison was alone, citing a lack of courage from the party he leads, the Liberals, and their coalition partners, the Nationals.

“They think ‘we’re going to play the Labour-lite game, what we’re going to do is get those Teal votes back’ – but they’re not coming back,” Mr Farage said.

The Teals are the climate activist MPs who claimed a number of previously liberal seats in affluent neighborhoods in the last federal election.

Mr Farage said it was common for Conservative politicians around the world to move towards “social democratic centralism” including in his own country under former Conservative Party Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

“It’s a very comfortable place because you get invited to all the nice dinner parties and life won’t be difficult,” Mr Farage said.

“What they have to do is say, ‘Actually, we’re going to take a moral stance, a strong moral stance, on many, many of these cultural issues.’

“Yes we will be abused, there will be protesters and yes people will say horrible things on Twitter but that’s the courage I’m talking about.”

He admitted many didn’t have the “qualities” to show such courage, but there would be an electoral reward if they did.

“I think, and what I’ve seen across the western world, is when conservative leaders do that (show courage) – guess what they win elections,” he said.

Mr Farage addressed a friendly audience gathered to attend the two-day Conservative CPAC Forum, held at Sydney’s Darling Harbor International Convention Center on Saturday afternoon.

Police at one point had to separate CPAC attendees and members of the media, who wandered into the rally and received a hostile reception.

The protesters also ran to get through a back entrance to the center but were blocked by police, who again chased them away as they tried to march to the building’s main entrance and change “F**k off fascists”.
