Tim Minchin slams the plebiscite as an insult to the public's intelligence

039;I still call Australia... homophobic': comedian slams Australian government

Tim Minchin pens a message to his home country which he labels as homophobic

Comedian Tim Minchin has rewritten "I Still Call Australia Home" taking aim at Australia's attitude towards same-sex marriage law and the up-coming postal poll.

The post has garnered 300,000 views in less than three hours, more than 18,000 shares and almost 15,000 reactions.

"I'm always traveling but wherever I stay, people love Aussies and they generally say, they think we're kind fun and amusing, tall tanned and toned. and a little bit racist, and a little bit home. -ophobic", Minchin sings.

He goes on to sing about Australians having an global reputation as being "a little bit racist", as well as homophobic.

The Los Angeles-based entertainer also looked at the "upside" of the plebiscite by offering: 'At least we'll know how many Aussies are bigoted c**ts.

The song was recorded on his iPhone last night and uploaded to social media this morning.

He continued to sing: 'Some day, we'll all be together once more, once they do their bloody jobs and just change the f***ing law'. "Your attempt to keep Australia in the past will be a failure, because most of Australia ain't homophobic".

Weighing in on the debate about whether or not activists should boycott a vote, Minchin adds slides at the end of the video stating he thinks the plebiscite is "noxious and obnoxious".

With polls showing most Australian's support marriage equality, the Government has nevertheless chose to proceed with a postal vote plebiscite to determine whether a marriage equality bill will be presented to parliament. "But if the horrid thing goes ahead, let's drown the mofos in "yes" votes", he writes.
