As we reported earlier today, Michelle Meyers, a Legislative Assembly candidate for Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party in Western Australia, claimed that there are so many supporters of legalizing same-sex marriages in Australia because the LGBT people learned the Nazi techniques of mind control.
The country’s PM Malcolm Turnbull could react on such as suggestion with nothing but laughing. Tony Burke of the Labor Party challenged: “My question is to the Prime Minister. I refer to his earlier answers, where he has defended his industry minister describing One Nation as ‘more sophisticated’. One Nation in Western Australia has now said the gay community across the world has developed a covert mind-control program to campaign for marriage equality, ‘using many of the strategies developed for the Soviets and then the Nazis’. Does the Prime Minister stand by his earlier answers? How long can the Turnbull government continue to make excuses for One Nation?”
“The Labor Party receives preferences from the Greens Party, which advocates legalising drugs of addiction. It advocates abandoning the US alliance. It advocates de-industrialising Australia. And I do not believe the Labor Party agrees with any of those policies. The fact of the matter is that in a preferential system, parties will reach preference deals in order to maximise their chances of success. The Labor Party has done that, and the coalition parties have done that, too,” Turnbull said in respond.
