The bigoted berk. 

Originally shared by Kerry Wright

"Cory is upset because Opposition Leader Bill Shorten called him a 'homophobe' in a televised exchange at Parliament House this morning. Not to get dramatic, but that is the worst thing to happen to anyone ever in the history of everything. How dare you, Bill Shorten. Calling someone with a long and well-documented history of fighting against the rights of LGBTI people a 'homophobe'! Describing someone who fits the literal dictionary definition of a word with that same word! Can’t a man walk down the street and claim marriage equality will lead to legalised bestiality without people showing some manners? For shame, sir.

It's one thing for someone like Cory Bernardi to have a giant sook about being called a 'homophobe', and to whinge about the dangers of name-calling while simultaneously angling to axe a program that combats anti-LGBTI bullying in schools and stirring up homophobic sentiment in the community. It’s another to do all that while being the one who started the whole name-calling thing in the first place. Shorten wouldn’t have said a word if Bernardi hadn’t called him a 'fraud' and tried to hijack his press conference in front of a bevy of TV cameras."

  1. The entire Abbott opposition was nothing but name calling.

  5. Bullying is a good description of their policies and behaviour.
