Australia’s Homophobe Ex-PM Homophobia Puts His Foot In His Mouth Over Macklemore

Failed Australian politician Tony Abbott has once again put his foot in his mouth with silly statements suggesting US rapper Macklemore should be banned from performing his no 1 hit ‘Same Love’ at the Grand Final in Sydney on Sunday.

‘Same Love’ was the 14th biggest selling song of 2013 in Australia. The song was not written about Australia’s current political same sex football which Abbott so loves to kick around in public. Abbott has chosen to draw that bow just a week after he tried to claim he was headbutted in Tasmania over the issue. (He wasn’t). His attacker just thought it as an opportunity he needed to take while he had the chance. Abbott then used the attack which was unrelated to the same-sex survey as an opportunity to grab some more headlines.

Macklemore said on Los Angeles radio this morning, “And it’s interesting actually cause I’m gonna play Same Love and they’re going through trying to legalise same-sex marriage in Australia.

“So I’m getting a lot of tweets from angry old white dudes in Australia. Today I think there is a petition to ban me from playing.

“It’s interesting times in Australia and I’m heading on a flight over there later tonight.”

It is interesting the former Prime Minister did not complain about Tom Jones singing ‘Delilah’ at Australian Grand Final. That song is about a jealous boyfriend who stabs his girlfriend to death.

The misogynist failed politician, who once said “What the housewives of Australia need to understand as they do the ironing…”, also once admitted about homosexuality, “I probably feel a bit threatened, as so many people do”.

“Footy fans shouldn’t be subjected to a politicised grand final. Sport is sport,” Abbott tweeted this week ironically politicising the grand final.

Macklemore has vowed to “go harder”. The song will stay in his setlist and will be performed at Sunday’s Grand Final.
