The left wing are so inclusive…yeah right

Check out the abuse that Warren Mundine has received after tweeting he voted Liberal in the recent Aussie elections.

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

A tirade of racist slurs were directed at Mr Mundine, who will run incoming Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s indigenous advisory council, after he tweeted how he voted.

He was referred to as a “white a … kisser,” “Uncle Tom,” an insulting term about black Americans and a “coconut.” 

The campaigner for indigenous jobs said that many of the texts and tweets he received with the racist terms were from white ALP members and non-indigenous supporters of the party.

On Saturday, Mr Mundine tweeted: “Like many Australians 2day I voted Liberal for the 1st time. Labor has become a party of spin not workers.

When he replied to one racist text message, Mr Mundine said the Labor supporter who had sent him the slur replied “the shoe fits, wear it.”

Mr Mundine said the abuse directed at him from members of his former party – which he quit in August 2012 – could deter future indigenous leaders from aspiring to public life.

He said the Left, which had advocated against racism, had turned on him.

“I copped a fair amount of racial abuse over the weekend,” he said.

“Some of the self-righteous people on the Left who attack people for being racist. About 40 per cent of attacks on me have been racial. It is because I voted Liberal and I am working for Tony Abbott.”
