Another week, another example the Greens have lost it

In the latest example that the Greens are completely devoid of reality, Greens Senator and failed Tasmanian Minister Nick McKim launched a bizarre defence of Yassmin Abdel-Magied’s taxpayer funded jaunt overseas claiming anyone seeking to expose this use of taxpayers money as being a “mutant feral rat”.

“This just yet again demonstrates the absolute intolerance of the Australian Greens to any views outside of their own which just adds to the evidence that the Greens have lost the plot,” Senator Abetz said today.

“Senator McKim’s bully-boy statements do himself a great disservice. In circumstances where Ms Abdel-Magied used taxpayer funds to go on an overseas jaunt, taxpayers have a right to know how their money has been spent.”


“It is a statement of fact that in many of the parts of the Middle East where Ms Abdel-Magied visited, women would be stoned to death for seeking an education and people even suspected of being gay are thrown off buildings. Why Senator McKim would claim that stating these facts is ‘racist’ or akin to a ‘mutant feral rat’ is puzzling,” Senator Abetz concluded.
