Ms Hanson shared the photograph to her Facebook page, saying she had reported the matter to the Australian Federal Police.
‘Why haven’t Twitter banned this person? Why don’t media call these people out?,’ she wrote.
‘If the Greens or a Labor member had this type of threat made against them, there would be outrage.’

‘I have no doubt others get them too, but I doubt they’re as serious as this,’ she responded.
A search for the image online found the same photograph of the shoes, gloves and knife had been shared to Twitter by three other users on separate dates.
A spokesperson for the Australian Federal Police told Daily Mail Australia they do not comment on matters of protection.
Meanwhile Pauline Hanson has accused Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk of ‘double standards’ for failing to condemn a planned Black Lives Matter protest while businesses are subject to strict rules and borders are closed to protect residents from coronavirus.
Up to 7,000 aboriginal rights activists will demonstrate in Brisbane’s King George Square on Saturday, inspired by recent Black Lives Matter protests in the US.
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has told protesters in his state to stay at home to protect public health, but Ms Palaszczuk has remained silent.

Senator Hanson said it was double standards to limit gatherings at funerals, weddings and sports fixtures while allowing mass protests.
‘This double-standard by Labor is angering thousands of struggling Queensland businesses experiencing forced lockdowns. It raises numerous puzzling questions,’ she said.
Ms Hanson questioned whether the restrictions are just a ‘political ploy’ to help Ms Palaszczuk get re-elected in October.
