POTTY-mouthed Senator David Leyonhjelm is unrepentant after calling an abusive correspondent a “communist turd”.

HERALD SUN JANUARY 17, 2015 2:58PM

The libertarian Senator has confirmed he also told a constituent to go away – in graphic terms – in an expletive-filled rant on his taxpayer-funded email account.

Senator Leyonhjelm’s correspondence was then published on a blog by the target of his abuse, who suggested his suggestion that he “go f— yourself’’ represented a suggestion that he “self harm”.

The row erupted after anti-discrimination campaigner and gay activist Gary Burns emailed NSW Senator Leyonhjelm and South Australian Senator Cory Bernardi.

In the email, Mr Burns opening salvo was to describe the MPs as “you two unAustralian pathetic little turds”.

He warned that if they allowed anyone to publish images ridiculing Jews or Muslims they would be in contempt of the anti-discrimination laws.

Senator Leyonhjelm returned fire, observing he was a “communist turd”, prompting some support from libertarians on Twitter.

But Mr Burns said: “This is the same imbecile calling for Australians to carry guns.”

“This boofhead is not a fit or proper person to represent the good people of NSW. I’ve been called many things in life but never a communist,” he said.

“When I received the offensive email from the Senator I was so shocked I clutched my pearls and reached for the smelling salts.”

Mr Burns has previously sued broadcaster John Laws under the Anti-Discrimination Act for calling gay men “pillow biters”.

“Senator Leyonhjelm’s credibility as a Member of the Australian Parliament wouldn’t be capable of buttering a plate of parnsips for the dinner table. The idiot should go and live on Gobo Island with a pet sheep,” he said.

In response, the NSW Senator fired off a second email to Mr Burns encouraging him to take the action he suggested earlier.

“Dear Gary. It appears you have not yet acted on my advice. Please do so. Go f— yourself as soon as possible. The world will be a better place,” it said.

A spokesman for Senator Leyonhjelm confirmed the emails were written by him.

“ COURT ORDERS TO APOLOGISE TO HOMOSEXUALS IGNORED BY TESS CORBETT”

4 September 2014
A former candidate for Bob Katter’s Australia Party who likened gays and lesbians to paedophiles during an interview on the campaign trail was found guilty of homosexual vilification and ordered to publish a public apology in the Sydney Morning Herald. ( http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news-court-orders-tess-corbett-to-apologise )

Tess Corbett's comments during the 2013 election campaign triggered outrage across the country, sparking legal action from anti-discrimination campaigner Garry Burns.
Tess Corbett’s comments during the 2013 election campaign triggered outrage across the country, sparking legal action from anti-discrimination campaigner Garry Burns.
Sydney Anti-Discrimination Campaigner and public interest litigant Garry Burns initiated the legal action against Ms.Corbett under the anti-discrimination act 1977 ( NSW ) alleging she’d breached the anti-vilification provisions.
On the 15 October 2013 Ms.Corbett was ordered by the former NSW Administrative Decisions Tribunal ( ADT ) to publish a public apology and apologise to Mr.Burns in writing.
Ms.Corbett appealed the decision on the 30 April 2014 and the appeal was dismissed on the 14 August 2014.
Mr. Burns said , “ I have no other alternative after speaking to Ms.Corbett’s legal representative Mr. Marcel White that the defendant has no intentions of complying with the orders of the court. I will now file a Certificate under Section 114 of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 in the Supreme Court of NSW for the purposes of enforcing the non -monetary orders against the defendant”.
When asked is she considered homosexuals to be in the same category as paedophiles , Ms.Corbett replied “yes”.
“ It seems to me that all along the defendant ( Ms.Corbett ) had only contempt for the whole process and actually believed she had the right to publicise her pernicious view that Australian homosexual men and women are criminals by likening them to that of a criminal. Paedophiles are criminals and homosexuals are not. And because of that twisted held view Ms.Corbett now refuses to comply with the orders of the court and make a public apology ,” Burns concluded.
ENDS

I did not abuse Lucy: Burns

I did not abuse Lucy

A gay rights campaigner has defended himself from claims that he verbally abused and physically intimidated Wentworth MP Malcolm Turnbull‘s wife Lucy over the weekend.

Gary Burns, famous for suing John Laws when he used the term “pillow-biter” on air, encountered Mrs Turnbull on Saturday.

Mr Burns launched a tirade of abuse at Mrs Turnbull, leaving her shaken, The Daily Telegraph reported today.

In response Mr Turnbull complained to the Labor Party, stating Mr Burns was a Labor volunteer and therefore the party’s responsibility, the newspaper said.

Today Mr Burns said he had done nothing more than make his point “passionately”, and said he had not been acting as a Labor Party volunteer.

“I did not have a Kevin 07 shirt on, I was not representing the Labor Party,” Mr Burns said. He did confirm he has acted as an ALP volunteer once in recent times, when he escorted Bob Hawke on tour of the federal seat in Sydney’s eastern suburbs last week.

What Mr Burns said he did was challenge Mrs Turnbull about her husband’s recent lack of support for a Democrat-initiated bill that proposed ending discrimination against homosexuals in 58 areas of law.

Both major parties supported only one of the 58 recommendations, involving superannuation benefits for deceased partners.

Mr Burns said he was on his way to a shop to buy the newspaper on Saturday when he spotted Mrs Turnbull.

“I said to Lucy: ‘Is Malcolm 57?’ ” he said this morning.

“She looked at me and said: ‘What do you mean?’

“I said there’s 58 … recommendations and he’s only supported one.”

He then “expressed his view with passion” he said, before walking off. The conversation lasted about 30 seconds and at no point was he physically aggressive or verbally abusive, he said.

“It was just a bit of argy bargy … I’ve done nothing wrong. Why should I apologise?

“There was no swearing, there was no touching her, it was just a passionate plea for equality for gay men and lesbians … you don’t just win a seat in Parliament and stay there like a crab sitting in the sun.”

He said people sometimes reacted poorly to him because of his passion.

“I think what people find with Gary Burns is passion, you need passion to change things … I’m a dogged individual; it’s about standing up to bullies and bringing about a common society for everybody.”

He said Mrs Turnbull was just upset because he had been accusing her and her husband of failing to act on gay issues.

“I’ve been campaigning in the gay media about the inaction of Turnbull on these local issues.

“What he does is send his wife [who] sips sauvignon blanc and waves her pinky finger out to the gay community.”

A spokesman for the Turnbulls later called Mr Burns’s behaviour “abusive, offensive and intimidatory”.

“There are many witnesses who can attest to that, as Mr Burns knows full well.”
