“Go F**k Yourself You Communist Turd” Senator Says To Anti-Free Speech Democrat

Shares 23K

It appears the Australia’s first libertarian senator has some harsh words for “anti discrimination leftists” who wish to crack down on free speech.

An anti free speech social Democrat named Gary Burns in Australia got a firm rebuke when he wrote to senator David Leyonjhelm about how Australia’s multiculturalism is the law. Leyonjhelm responded harshly, saying “Go fuck yourself you communist turd.” 

Australia has free speech codes, not a First Amendment like the United States. People can be prosecuted for offending others. It’s pretty disgusting and sad, but this exchange is a thing of beauty. Praise to Senator Leyonjhelm for his guts!

  • excellent.

    Everybody is getting all up in arms about Senator Leyonjhelm’s reply, but he was responding to a reply that was just as offensive. Not only was he responding to a rude letter, but the letter that was written by the opposing senator Burns was ironic and contradicting. It’s the old progressive ‘tolerate my intolerance’.

      And then people wonder why I believe most progressives would look good on a lamp post.

          • Not a fair trade!

            That’s like exchanging a double turd sandwich for a kobe beef hamburger. ?

    • Why? What he is advocating, in a sense, is the abolishment of the First Amendment..

      I see it as one commie, calling out another commie, for out commying the other commie.

      They can both screw each other.

      • n4zhg

        Australia doesn’t have a first amendment. Reading Is Fundamental.

        • Yes, reading is fundamental, and you missed the obvious, read it again, and you’ll understand the reason for my response. Pay close attention to the U.S. part.

          “we need this man in the US Senate”

          Now do you get it?

      • Fullname J Warrington

        Er, what?

        You just saw the words ‘liberal’ and ‘democrat’ in the party name and made assumptions, didn’t you?

        I suppose you’ll be supporting the Australian Labor Party next, what with that evil socialist Liberal party running the place at the moment..

        • Say what? The only place I referenced liberal was to the poster that wanted his ilk in the US Senate.
          Care to elaborate?

          • Tom W.

            Leyonjhelm seems to be a fine statesman and would likely make a fine U.S. senator. “His ilk”? You must be the commie.

          • Why would you want a Senator in the US that carries such disdain for something as basic as Free Speech?

          • Tom W.

            Senator Leyonjhelm was supporting free speech in his response to the anti-free speech left-wing activist Garry Burns. I’m not the only one that has pointed this out to you in these comments. Regards, TW

          • OK, I reread it again, and this article is poorly written, and by poorly written, I mean an 8th grader would get an F for structure if they turned this in.

            My apologies, being dyslexic doesn’t help.

            But the way I read it, the author made this sound like Leyonjhelm was claiming their speech was offensive.

            I know I’m not alone in my confusion, because I’ve seen the same reaction on other sites.

            So My apologies to Leyonjhelm, he does appear to have his priorities straight, as well as calling a spade a spade, or lib a commie.

          • Tom W.

            That’s true, it is not the easiest article to sort out in the first place. Regards, TW

          • Thanks TW. As Ole pointed out, there are distinct differences between the US and Australia, that, and the fact I’m dyslexic doesn’t help.

          • Ole

            I believe the main reason why you Americans are somwehat confused about this article is the fact that the Liberal Democrats in Australia (of which Sen David Leyonjhelm is a member) is the right-of-center party there – whereas “liberal” in the US context of course means left. (The main left party in Australia is the Australien Labor Party). This senator appears to be the most “radical” in terms of favoring limited government in this legislative body, the Australian Senate – just as there are some in the US Republican Party like that.

          • Thanks Ole, and yes, I’m still at a bit of a loss in understanding your politics.
            I’ll have to start following t a bit closer to understand it.

            It would appear I’m not alone in my confusion, based on the thumbs up my initial post received.

          • Ole

            But mind you – listen to his speech – he is actually in favor of keeping government out of ALL aspects of life, where possible.

            Here are some where limited govt. should apply:
            Your purse
            your property
            overregulation of your business

            (since you call yourself conservative, you’ll love those, I guess)

            BUT he favors ALSO keeping govt. out of:
            your bedroom
            – he is pro gay rights – including gay marriage – and pro abortion

            (I am not so sure whether an American conservative would like that)

            All combined, he calls himself the most outspoken supporter of liberty in the Australian Senate.

          • Unfortunately I can’t watch it, I passed my allocated bandwith again. ) :
            But he sounds more like TEA, we prefer govt get out of the bedroom as well. This is not to say we are either for or against abortion, rather it’s not the govts place to use taxpayer dollars to fund it.
            The forum listed in my name is mine, I started it about 4 years back, and we are the quintessential TEA forum in the US…
            Real TEA is Conservative with a heavy dose of Libertarian.

          • Paul Revered

            The problem is that they don’t bother reading or listening…they just assume things based on headlines and their own bias.

      • Papaduke

        Ummmm no first amendment in Australia. And if you think “go fuck yourself” is any-free speech… well you can… you know. Leave it to a conservative to fuck up basic Constitutional principles.

        • I see comprehension eludes you a bit.

          • StrayfromthePath

            You need to read my reply to Katherine. Also the fact that you need to resort to ad hominem attackes says that you have no intellectual heft.

          • gtwreck

            We can have all the internal family squabbles we want but once we go to another country we should alway defend our country right or wrong. That was the rule untill some politicians and celebrities got too big for their britches. The rule needs to be brought back by the retiring of politicians and marginalizing of so called celebrities untill they learn the rule.

          • ClemXII

            Where as Ron Paul ever “blamed” America. He gives blame to the system and the war mongers who cause this country foreign blowback or economical blowback from private banksters and sold out politicians who operate behind closed doors with no over-sight.

            I guess you’re another loser who thinks government does no wrong and that they have the best interest of you at heart. How cute.

            Figure out what blow-back is and listen to experts who actually served in counter-terrorism units and study terrorism so you can educate yourself.

            I guess arming regimes who kill their people, removing democratically elected governments and propping up puppets wouldn’t cause you know…an organization to declare war on us. Nope. Half a million dead iraqi children from clinton sanctions…no problem.

            YOU IDIOT.

          • Richard Heathen

            “Blame ‘Murica first derp!” You are such an idiot. Pointing out the mistakes of American foreign policy is hardly having one’s head in the sand you simplistic twat! I imagine you haven’t seen a foreign conflict you didn’t want the US military to jump into. Fuck yourself and die.

          • KatherineBranwen

            Wow… you’re really slow! It took you nine months and your best argument is the cretinous word ‘twat’?
            Your imaginings are wrong, that is, assuming that someone with your proven deficiencies is capable of imagining anything that lies outside your own hate-filled little bubble.

            Sorry to disappoint such a testicularly challenged monkey as yourself, but I have no intention of dying or fucking myself. I’ll leave the latter up to infinitely more experienced creatures like you, and the former up to God.

          • Richard Heathen

            You’re just a derpy cunt I didn’t spend 2 seconds of thought coming up with a reply to. After all that, all you can do is question my masculinity, like I care what an idiotic harpy such as yourself thinks of my masculinity. Again, I will repeat my suggestion that you fuck yourself and die, you’d be doing an amazing service to the human race.

          • KatherineBranwen

            Wow, more demonstrations of your ‘intellect’.
            Your so-called masculinity is not questionable, it’s completely absent. It’s crystal clear that you’re not even a semblance of a man. Frankly, I doubt you even know what one is.
            And as far as doing the human race a service, isn’t it more logical for a creature of your excessive hate and ignorance to rid the world of himself? After all, of what possible use could you be? You’re a misogynistic coward and a laughable bully.
            As far as your suggestion goes, I’ll simply refer you to my prior answer.
            Now run along, and find someone who is a dumb as you are.

          • Richard Heathen

            Hahahahaa muh misogyny??? Hahahaha I love it when belligerent cunts like you play the victim. LMAO!!!! Because your previous posts have been a demonstration of your soft delicate nature HAHAHAHAAAA. I love the irony “I am gonna ridicule you for not being masculine enough, but I am going to act like a belligerent bull dyke though,” this is great “lady”. Guessing from your comments on masculinity, that you are pretty familiar with being a man. Don’t feel bad, being a tranny is actually pretty trendy these days. Are pre-op or post-op, you should tell your doctor to prescribe you more estrogen or something your aggressive nature is still manifesting pretty strong.

          • Robert Gough

            So when our foreign policy over the last few decades isn’t responsible for the migrant crisis, isn’t responsible for toppling a regime that had begun to unify a nation in the middle east?

            You interventionists believe it is our responsibility to go around the world and solve their problems. When in reality your beliefs and voting actions make us less safe daily as more and more drones cause children to have nightmares about America.

            So to your “crazy old bat father” comment, Stop supporting pre-emptive immoral attacks against countries we have no place being involved with militarily in the first place.

    How any of you can equate “liberal” with “communist” is beyond me. If you study communism, which apparently most of you haven’t, you’ll see it’s fascist, authoritarian, repressive -not at all like liberals. Gary Burns touts himself to be “anti-discrimination & public interest litigant”, whereas David Leyonjhelms touts himself to be “Liberal Democrats Senator for NSW (New South Wales)”.
    Both of them are behaving like 12-yr olds & have very poor command of the English language, as evidenced by their expletive-laced exchanges here. Just pathetic. They’re both boors.

    • Owain Shebbeare

      In my answer I am going to use the US meaning of “liberal” which is to say Democrat, hippie, hand-wringer, campus activist, free-speech hater, Political Correctness Czar. The Australian meaning is usually. though not in all contexts, distinctly different in political discussion, referring to an old English notion of “Liberal (or free) trade, and a set of values limiting the power of government, definitely not something OBummer believes in.”. Hence we have a Liberal Party, and they are conservative, and Sen Leyonhhelm’s party is based on similar lines. The common US meaning of liberal is generally what I listed above.

      As with all Western nations we have seen a march of Communist inspired liberalism through almost every institution, and it is the biggest threat to our way of life. Australia has no Freen Speech as such, just implied freedoms that are often shouted down by the collectivist Left, often through social media campaigns and even credible threats of violence. Too often these are disregarded but PC authorities for the sake of appeasing minority shouters.

      As for multiculturalism, it was a farce brought in by a crooked politician (Al Grassby) for two reasons: to remake the Australian Labor Party (ALP) into a new US style liberal image of sorts, and also to cover up his criminal associations with the Calabrian mafia operating in his state in the early 1970’s

      The ALP is like the US Democrats: the party of racism, tariffs, taxes, union corruption, restricted speech (for the good of everyone of course) and big government. Sadly almost all alternative Western governments to this model have fallen into the same mode.

    We used to have politicians like that in the US. No more. And it’s a sad thing. Rep. Wilson shouted “You lie!” when Obama was clearly lying, and he was eviscerated in the press. Not one single fellow Republican supported him. In fact, every single conservative harassed by the IRS on Obama’s orders, every family member of the four killed in Benghazi, the families of any American killed by the ragheads Obama has set free from Gitmo, every American who has lost their healthcare plan or doctor because of Obamacare, every single one of them should be shouting to Obama “Go f*ck yourself, you communist turd!”

    • Sporty

      Indeed, conservative politicians in the US should answer any question from the media regarding something Obama says with this caveat; Well, considering the President is a liar, I am not sure how to respond to your request for me to respond to his comment/statement. Since he is a liar I can’t tell if his latest comment/statement is a lie or not. So, it would be best for me to allow you and your peers to ascertain if the President is lying again – or not – and then get back to me for a comment.
