    Default Racist because of his vote???

    There is so much hate from the Left at the moment.

    INDIGENOUS leader and former ALP president Warren Mundine has been subjected to racial abuse from Labor members and supporters angry he voted Liberal.

    There was a facebook page up yesterday (not sure if it still is) from the Socialist Alliance titled 'Tony Abbott should be assassinated".

    Disgusting.

    It doesn't matter who you vote for or who is in goverment. Pages and stories like that will always be fabricated, created and published. It just depends on who you support or follow whether you notice it.

    I note from previous posts of yours that you are an extremely staunch liberal supporter. Hence why you take these more seriously and take more offence to the joke pages re Tony Abbott. I recall seeing very similar stories and jokes the last time ALP won. In fact, I believe the way the media and public treated Julia was downright rude and misogynist.

    It is disgusting that the media reports this stuff and disgusting that people actually print and post things like this in social media. Unfortunately, it is an issue with anything be it politics, sports, celebrities etc due to people being able to so freely and quickly express their opinions to the broad public via social media and the internet.

    I did not vote Liberal. I yes, I do take the talk of assassination pretty seriously.

    I agree that the media should not report on social media comments and posts. It gives air to stupid comments by stupid people.

    Yet you're helping give air by reposting...

    ETA: and I think the point being made above was that there were many of these pages and comments around for Gillard but because you didn't support her you didn't take note of them. You said the other day you didn't have Facebook so never noticed anti-Julia/labor posts/pages but yet you notice this one.

    Of everything in the news today these are the things you choose to troll BubHub with, Father? Really?

    ETA: Although if someone does a weird thing and pays for their news online and has the article for "Clive Palmer threatening to sue if he doesn't win Fairfax" I'd be pretty interested in reading that. =D
