  1. This has been a long-standing conservative bullshit slander against the Australian Greens. The fact of the matter is the Greens’ environmental policy supports evidenced-based hazard reduction and back burning.

  2. Man every time.

    “Ohhh cool, my country made it to world ne….fuck.”

  3. This is why free speech is so great.

    It makes it so much easier to spot a useless cunt.

  4. Disgusting. Yet this is precisely what I expect from a government that only represents the wealthy.

  5. A resignation is the only apology acceptable…

  6. Doesn’t he have a staffer to be banging, or another interview crying about how he can’t live off 200k?

  7. From the outside, Aus politicians appear to talk and behave like they’ve been teleported here from the 1950s.

  8. Straight out of the NRA’s playbook when it comes to mass shootings, both sides of the house have been saying now is not the time to talk about climate change … thoughts and prayers everyone, thoughts and prayers

  9. Johnny Depp reckons he is a fat sweaty old man. Johnny made a mistake.

    Barnaby is not a man at all.

  10. This is taking it from Trump’s handbook. Just make outrageous arguments and blame the other people for the issue.

    “The Greens! It’s the Greens who caused the bushfires!” When challenged over climate policy.

    The problem is, this kind of argument works and his base eats it all up.

  11. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.sbs.com.au/news/barnaby-joyce-says-two-people-who-died-in-nsw-bushfires-most-likely-voted-for-the-greens) reduced by 71%. (I’m a bot)

    > Nationals MP Barnaby Joyce has suggested two people who died in the NSW bushfires "Most likely" voted for the Greens as he blamed the minor party for increasing the threat of bushfires.

    > Mr Joyce made the comment on Sky News on Tuesday as he doubled-down on his claims that the fire service had conducted insufficient hazard reduction burns as a result of Greens opposition.

    > While Mr Joyce also criticised Mr Bandt's political tactics, he acknowledged the impact of climate change on Australia's bushfire season.

  12. This guy shagged his secretary, got her pregnant and divorced his wife. His daughters then stole his campaign car and told his area not to vote for him. Look it up. Crazy shit.

  13. Fuck, the news really likes to highlight the political environment in the US at the moment, but goddamn if Australia’s political landscape isn’t fucked up as much, if not more.

  14. “I envy people who have never heard of this walking, talking shit stain of a person”. He should be hung from the rafters of Parliament for his unAustralian comments.

  15. “They probably voted for the greens, so I’m not going to attack them”

    He says as he makes a presumptuous attack on them.

  16. If some cunt pushes this cunt into a fire, I didn’t see anything.

    I’ll testify that clear 400k 360* panoramic video was a yellow object that could have been anything and the howls were probably a Thylacine.

  17. People fucking died, how fucking inappropriate do you have to be to slander a political party in the wake of this ONGOING tragedy. He can fuck himself with the rough end of a pineapple.

  18. I suppose we can guess who won’t be getting votes at the next election.

  19. these people have no shame or what? at this point, armed response to government should be considered.

  20. Beetrooter should be jailed over watergate. How are the Nationals so weak that this dog is in leadership?

  21. > “I acknowledge that the two people who died were most likely people who voted for the Green party,

    So he’s admitting his statement is 100% made up with no factual basis whatsoever.

    > so I am not going to start attacking them. That’s the last thing I want to do.”

    And yet that didn’t stop him from doing exactly that.

  22. This is what he said…see video folks we need fact checks before vitriol: [https://www.news.com.au/technology/environment/greens-policies-blamed-for-increased-fire-risks/news-story/bdf3d8ac083d06ba468f7135881f45b8](https://www.news.com.au/technology/environment/greens-policies-blamed-for-increased-fire-risks/news-story/bdf3d8ac083d06ba468f7135881f45b8)

  23. Awful awful kunt. He should be put in the same cage on Nauru with Dutton, Scummo and Corman.
