Gov suck up to sepos

Is he still hanging around?

Who the hell does he actually think he is besides treacherous lying two faced RAT he is the one who should be punished PeterDutton_MP

Citizenship ceremonies can and have always been able to, be held on any day of the week. Mine was on the 19th September 1996. Before the flag waving jingoistic national American styled bullshit infected the country.

Dutton Threatens To Steal Councillor’s Children If They Change Australia Day

HkarterKarter Careful Pete your PM is showing compassion and crying and praying over asylum seekers ... against your orders.

An Aussie Polly, well known for his bullying, and yet he gets voter support? He needs to be reigned in.

AltoCarol There’s a challenge

If enough councils move at the same time it would show you are not a liked man But you are the master of division and you are at your best when you are dividing people maybe a few au pair would help to distract you.

What business is it of the Home Affairs Minister? This isn't the first time he has uttered this threat, but he still doesn't have the authority to make the threats.

Councils can hold citizenship ceremonies on any darn day they like. It's in the Local Government Act of every state. This fascist thug potato is getting closer and closer to the boiling vat of chip fat, and I'll laugh with glee when he finally struts his jackbooted way into it.

Doesn’t he know that Australia has three levels of government for a reason?

The threats will continue until the people love me.

OccupiedOutback Wow...thats very democratic...why is this idiot still in government...Muppet...

👏🏼👏🏼

Thesismis Duck you, Futton :-(

Love your work Peter 🇦🇺

What are you gonna do potato head? Give them the evil stare RWFW fascistpig

I remember that dude, he walked out of the Apology to the Stolen Generations didn't he?

BrianMa94449820 Go away SBS. Your obviously far left stance re Australia Day is puerile division politics. Typical Far Left twaddle. We KNOW your true motivations.

What's he gonna do, spank them?

Peter Dutton will be punished next election. And in hell.

Punished how? By a visit from him?

AltoCarol Who do you think you are Dutton? Mr Australia

Be afraid, very afraid. LNPfail auspol Australia

He is irrelevant, he will be vanquished at the general election, who cares what he has to say auspol dataretention s44 he should resign now , mash the potato

RobMax4 Sounds like a challenge.

So what - only 1 new citizen from Yarra chose to attend the Department of Immigration citizenship ceremony on 26 January this year changethedate StopGovernmentSilencingDemocraticallyElectedLocalCouncils

iMusing Thus saith the Gestapo

What & who gives him that right?

I just don't understand why? Is that not a bit dictatorship like? Why can't each council have the right to choose what days they conduct ceremonies?

Anyone else notice the government australiaday Webpage has been quietly changed? (the one that originally said it was about celebrating the arrival of the fleet etc.)

wingfield Who the Fk does potato head thinks he is? We need to get rid of this lot.. so vote labor until Abbott & potato head are removed!!!

iMusing Just vote this horrible turd out.

Show them some discipline?

Urge29594909

Urge29594909 💬Trumped up little dictator.

It's local government Mate the closest to the people and if the people want it, the people will get it.

Australia Day is for all Australians - whatever colour they claim to be. It is therefore a federal Government issue & not a subject that divisive leftist SJW warrior Councillors should use to divide society.

Easy. They will move AustraliaDay as soon as Dutton’s career is dead and buried (not long now)

MSMWatchdog2013 The minister for AU pairs and Australia Day. useless

myknittingwool You will be sent to Nauru.

Ve vill ANNEX!!!!

OBEY! OBEY! O-BEYYYYY!!!!!

A whole bunch of Peter Dutton's got together in Germany in the 1940's and tried stuff like this. It kinda ended badly for them.

Not to worry Herr Dutton will be gone by the next election.

You do realise NAIDOC events happen across the calendar year not just during NAIDOC week... JustSayin

This is the best thing to come out of the mouths of this government in years !!!

DictatorDutton is really a nasty piece of work auspol

Believe it everyone he has the power and he’s not afraid to use it we dodged a bullet not getting PeterDutton_MP instead we have to put up with ScottMorrisonMP ‘s muppet show LNPfail LiberalAus auspol LNPcorruption LNPfail sackdutton alifrance5

MSMWatchdog2013 hitler

Australians with this white attitude are less respected and sick to the rest of the world.

I think Australia was already a country before Jan 26, or more correctly Jan 1st 1901. Why not have Australia day the weekend after Queens birthday? When ever that is? Moving Australia day will not make me less Australian. I'll take whatever day I want off bossylittlespud

Who wants to slap 👋 is forehead

We’ve all been punished enough already just by his rhetoric

slackbastard Herr Dutton has spoken...

Why is this corrupt leech still receiving a federal pay check

What the Punished. Think we’re all asylum seekers PeterDutton_MP Your ignorance & cruelty knows no bounds auspol

'punished', this guy has never heard of grace, love or mercy.

Send Dutton to Den Haag

giddeygirl I’ve finally got it. He looks like the Nazi Colonel at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark whose face melts when the reveal the broken tablets. I only the same would have happened when he broke the moral compass.

giddeygirl punished?

ellinjaa Tell him to go home. What makes him so special! Maybe he is special? Maybe he hasn’t renounced his citizenship in Marklar

Lynestel Uh huh, Dutton knows all about punishment.

Of course-everything Dutton does is that old patriarchal solution for everything: PUNISH!

'Punished'...

Peter DeplorableDutton WILL be punished by the electorate... then you'll see his ugly rage .!!

Nice one skeletor , really got it together PeterDutton_MP

As they should.

What does “punished” mean? Do we elect our MPs to PUNISH us?

He was nearly our Prime Minister.

Dutton is a born bully. I hope he goes. Yes he is an awful man

It will be your last stroke, oh appalling one!

suthernx Does he plan on visiting them.

Pig!

Sounds fair. One nation not a band of happy folk or councils voted in by green voters Dutton is correct

vmp9 Dicktater Dutton

suthernx Councils are offices of the State Governments. This is serious overreach.

traceywithhope Aren't we a democracy?

Wonder if they’ll be sentenced to become au pairs at his mates’ houses.

Peter Dutton looks like The Punisher. It would not surprise me if all his fantasies involve him inflicting sick punishments. lovesagoodpunishment

annemar35560819 God, feels like we're drowning in repugnant male politicians lately.

Still being the big tough ex-cop I see.

What a thug.

pedwards2014 Outside his portfolio responsibilities. Not within his remit to make such threats. More attention seeking. Quite pathetic really.

davidbewart Do it , do it , do it

Always pretends to be the big man

Australia became a country on 1 January 1901. Dutton insists new citizens take the pledge on Rum Rebellion Day, 26 January. January 1788 was when they got off the boat, changed their mind and got back on the boat and moved to another harbour.

pedwards2014 ' Punished ' - for making a democratic decision - this Trumped up little try hard has to be despatched at the next election .

I will celebrate WHEN&WHERE i want!! Dutton & his Fascists can Get Lost!!

PCKJ3627 Australians don't want Dutton 'playing politics' with these issues.

.....sent to Nauru?

PCKJ3627 Punished? What is this the Middle Ages?

26 January is Invasion Day!

I hate Illinois Nazi's.

Serious question. What law, part of the constitution, ministerial brief makes this his business?

This bloke like SERGEANT SHULTZ I KNOW NOTHING

You are on the wrong side of history Potato Head. 'Come gather 'round people wherever you are .... ' I wouldn't expect a flog like you to know the rest of the words so look 'em up if you care.

Hope Australian councils don't be frightened off doing citizenship ceremonies when they want to just because some shithead starts stamping his feet this is not Germany 1933 jackboot diplomacy

Shush your mouth up PM_PeterDutton you were voted irrelevant by your own party.

ArchieM00re Dutton brings back the spirit of the 18th century - fifty lashes for transgressors and hung off the yardarm!

cunningham_cch That's all Dutton knows: Foreign or Domestic - Punish, Detain, deport, threaten to punish, Punish and Punish some more. I wonder how he came up with this method of response?

The sooner this man loses his seat the better our country will be.

PCKJ3627 He’ll get the brown....err....black shirts onto them?

Don’t worry. Dutton will get his cumuppence

You’ll be punished on Election Day

.vanbadham

LyndsayFarlow Been moved b4many times-why keep insulting FirstNationPeople pls retore faith that we have a Government with some empathy .theprojecttv does Dutton hva little moustache&high leather boots on& what authority does he have2Punish anyone .ScottMorrisonMp is NotMyPM PUNISH REALLY🐷

Maybe the Liberals can replace the citizenship ceremony with a Tony Abbott inspired activity where every white man shakes hands with an aboriginal and says “Thank you for putting up with the invasion” 🤪

Does this mean the dozens of citizenship ceremonies held throughout the year all have to be moved the Jan 26th?

Punished? WTF this is not Nazi Germany.

Where's harry potter when u need him.

Will DopeyDutton send in the Schutzstaffel troops to local councils

I hope he is not in parliament after the next election and he needs to do a history course on Australian history..

Aren't we already being punished with current liberal government... What have they got to lose

👌

Bye bye

Look at all the bleeding heart lefties who all live within a 100kms of a major city crying over why should be a national celebration. Doesn’t matter what day we decide all you fuckheads will cry about something. Whinging tap water murries and snowflakes

Go for it, Peter. We need politicians like you who will not bow to those leftist minority groups who are infiltrating into our administration.

Every time Dutton speaks I hear Davros, the leader of the Daleks. 'You Will OBEY! You WILL OBEY!!! YOU WILL OBEY OR YOU - or your citizenship council funding - WILL BE EXTERMINATED!!!' Is it just me? DrWho auspol

Shouldn't be in government

Australians don't want councils playing politics with these issues. Australia Day citizenship ceremonies should remain and maintain on January 26. That’s final. Just move on. Hats off to PD.

Haha I bet they are shaking in their boots

🖕

If ScoMo does not curb the thuggery of this au pair moron, the voters will sure put their boots in the backside of the Lib party at the next election However I am not optimistic ScoMo has the backbone to do what is right by the voters intellect

Any government that refuses to listen to the people will be punished, say the voters.

Will Peter Dutton be suing the Meat and Livestock Association? They started it with LAMB DAY in 2017

Peter Dutton is not our dictator

Good

He's been quiet. Was wondering when he'd poke his head back up. Nothing's changed... still determined to bully everyone into submission.

LocalCouncil business is: * Roads. * Rates. * Rubbish. * Rats. * Roaches. And should be defunded to enforce that extent and send a clear message to SpendingOtherPeoplesMoneyUntilitRunsOut crowd.

I'm sure most councils looking to make a change would have no problem holding the ceremonies on Jan 26, and just moving their Australia day celebrations forward a day

Dear, oh f$king dear! Don’t our federal politicians have anything better to do?Citizenship ceremonies are held on many days during the year. So what’s the problem with a council deciding not to have one on 26 Jan?

northway_debbie This man knows no other way but to threaten and bully others. voteAliFrance Dickson

Ah - reminiscing “A Clockwork Orange “ you will be conditioned into compliance by graphic movies and music.

From the Muppet sitting in parliament that won't front up to the high court to rule on his eligibility to sit and make ministerial decisions 🐕

ColBurns1954 And the problem is

ColBurns1954 Good.

ColBurns1954 I lean to the more conservative side of politics but still think 26th Jan is the wrong day for a Holiday. Lets change it but without resorting to name calling or violence. Surely we are capable of that. AustraliaDay Straya

As they should, any council full of feral left green socialists should be held to account because they don't represent Aussie values and in their warped little minds think they represent the majority. AustraliaDay

This right wing fucktard simply doesn't understand democracy. auspol

Well done PeterDutton_MP seems the complainers don't like being told what to do, just as the rate payers in Byron, didn't like being told what to do by the Council. 😂😂😂

BillDobell good and it is the right thing to do bloody minority idiots

How like Peter Dutton, the failed policeman to want to punish people for their opinion? Why the hell do you think you are, Dutton? The most hated man in politics. You’ve been stripped of 2 of your portfolios, so shut up.

lesleyanne12 I can't help but think that councils that defy Dutton will be known as the 'rebel alliance' auspol

Punished? We are all being punished by having this goose in government. He has to go.

Punished? Nasty fascist ist he?

Good one! Let’s move on now!

They should all rebel collectively!

Piss off potato

You Vil do as I order, or you Vil be Punished.

Govt own policy says “In keeping with government policy that ceremonies be held at regular intervals, LG councils should hold ceremonies at least every two to three months, regardless of the number of candidates available to attend” Changethedate auspol Treaties

Great stuff, council should be for services not governance and moving a National Day to appease a vile minority is not their jurisdiction.

what sort of punishment? deported, killed?!

With what potato head?

Doesn't he have a child torturing gulag somewhere to run on behalf of his redneck dickhead supporters? He doesn't frighten anyone anymore except people in custody who wont sign the confessions he has written for them

Democracy in action. You will be sent to detention camp.

nakarithorpe That's cool. Can't wait until the next election when you will be punished into oblivion...🖤💛❤

TroyCramp69 Good. Councils have been infiltrated by Greens who are trying in vain to destroy Australia's history. They need to be put into place, councils do not run the country, nor do the Greens and I hope they never will.

Is it May yet? Can’t wait to see the last of this mongrel cur.

nakarithorpe dickhead

What he does best. Threaten.

He’s definitely popped a few screws after not getting Turnbull’s job!

What’s good govt? Allowing/encouraging civil debate on every important issue... or imposing/inflicting your ideological views on unhappy citizens? Dutton thinks he’s some sort of god/divine ruler... but there’s a little thing... yes a tsunami of change is coming... Dickwad!

Punish is the only way Liberals know.

What a hero. Does PeterDutton_MP realise that he sounds like an absolute tosser with his threats of punishment over this issue

Deport the Dutton an immigrant or immigrant descendant of blood German appearance!

Will councillors be sent to Nauru?

The only ones wanting to move it are the greens voting white guilt looney lefties......perhaps they should hold their own ceremony in North Korea amongst their commie friends

DameEmpress Dutton looks more like a potato every day

How so , he'll be out after the next one.

So much for democracy. Oh, of course. PeterDutton_MP doesn’t believe in democracy...

So they should be punished

Umm...silly question, I know, but...’punished’ under what head of power?

EVERY council is now beyond obligated to move their ceremony.

So what is he going to get out the big stick and write names in his white folders ?

From the party of freedom of choice & small government .... auspol

HEY SBS MAYBE YOU KNOW Who is responsible for prosecuting the crime of signing a false declaration to nominate for election? AEC cant - their legislation wont allow it. AFP say it is AEC job. Brandis said he couldn't force AFP to do anything. AFP isn't Duttons according to FOI.

So just have the citizenship ceremony on any other day and don't call it 'The Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony'. You're welcome, councils.
