Senator Across The Hall From Eric Abetz Trolls Him Over His Flag Tantrum

With the grace, bearing and appearance of a 1940s Universal monster, extravagantly dense Tasmanian senator Eric Abetz managed to lurch his way into the political discourse again today with yet another almost sublime piece of political fuckwittery – this time pissing his pants because some government buildings have been displaying rainbow flags.
Apparently seeing the world through a lens of gays versus straights, he saw the flags as a declaration of allegiance in the upcoming sexuality war:
“To cut to the chase, there was the rainbow flag on display in the lobby which, believe it or not, some people see as an activist flag for a particular cause in relation to an issue of whether or not we should change the legislation on marriage and some people of course support that cause, others don’t.”
Because, of course, gay people are a political party and cause, not just, y’know, a minority that has found a shared identity through a shared experience of ostracisation, disenfranchisement and oppression. 
He dumbassedly argued that, if we’re showing solidarity for one minority, we should giving equal airtime to a fringe political group who believes that the first group doesn’t deserve any rights and should basically just die:
“If that is allowed, then one imagines that the Marriage Alliance banner should be flown equally.”

It’s really, really inspiring to know that in this beautiful country, anyone can become a senator, even if they are a colossal dingus.

Luckily not everyone in Parliament is a huge dickhole (most of them are, though), with WA Labor senator Glenn Sterle having a cheeky crack at Abetz’ little tantrum.
Sterle, who occupies the office across from Abetz, made a cheeky interior decoration at the senator’s expense, hoisting a rainbow flag in the window facing the hallway which will hopefully cause Abetz to gasp and drop his coffee every damn morning:

Glenn, mate, love your work.
