The quality of Australian Politics keeps getting better
So last night I stumbled across fuckin’ Bernard Gaynor. Mr Gaynor is apparently a nominee for the federal Senate in the forthcoming Australian election, standing on behalf of Bob Katter’s party. While he proudly announces which state he’s from on his bio, I’ll leave it to you to guess where the fuck this ignorant, hypocritical, self-righteous fuck-knuckle hails from based on his own comments:
As a KAP senator I’ll have courage to close borders to those who do not accept Aussie values – burkas are not a sign of tolerance #auspol

I wouldn’t let a gay person teach my children and I am not afraid to say it #auspol

I guess among the many, many, many things that Mr Gaynor is ignorant of, he is also unclear on what tolerance is and how it is practised. Although I suppose you could mount a valid argument that an understanding of the meaning of words is a smaller problem when you take into account the fact that the guy’s racist, homophobic, anti-science and running for political office.
