THE thugs who launched a vile racist attack again Labor Senator Sam Dastyari have found themselves in legal trouble over the incident.

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.

"It makes me feel small, makes me feel frightful, it makes you feel kind of bad and that's what they are created to do".

"Everywhere I go I get white nationalists follow me, they show up at events I do, " he said.

"I'm in public life, there are 15-16 year old kids in the schoolyard copping this kind of racial abuse and they don't have the tools available to handle this".

Bigots like him recite that line as though it's a light bulb moment, when the truth is it's a line that is only used by the extremely dim.

Senator Hanson's chief of staff James Ashby told AAP: "Sam Dastyari gets heckled because he's a wanker. and not because he's a Muslim".

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said there was no place for racial vilification in Australia.

"There is a rise in the extreme right and there is a rise of white nationalism and it needs to be called out", he said.

One of the men who was convicted, Neil Erikson, was among the group who abused Dastyari on Wednesday.

At one point Labor MP Tim Watts injects asking "what race is a dickhead".

The group whose members approached Senator Dastyari, labelled him a "terrorist" and shared the disturbing exchange on Facebook, call themselves Patriot Blue.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said Senator Dastyari kept his cool.

"You dance so far to the right that it gives those a little bit further out a sense of entitlement". "That is because our society is built on a foundation of mutual respect". The way racism plays out is abuse towards someone because they are a different colour, or maybe they wear a headscarf, or a cross around their neck. "What is this country coming to when you can not go out for a meal without being abused by racist idiots", he told Seven.

You'd have to say, Dastyari has handled it well.

"The actions of these individuals in no way reflect the beliefs and values of Toll", it said.

Mr Erikson said the racist taints constituted 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. "If he wants to go for Toll and try and hurt me financially he can go for it".

He was sentenced to a 12-month community correction order, involving 150 hours of unpaid work.

He's also appealing a 2017 conviction for beheading a dummy outside a Bendigo council office in protest over plans to build a mosque.
