Australian government compared to Nazis by Opposition frontbencher

Remarks comparing the federal government to the Nazi party are offensive and hurtful, new federal Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus says.

Coalition frontbencher Christopher Pyne on Sunday said the federal government was unravelling like Hitler‘s government in the movie Downfall.

Mr Pyne said the resignation of two senior ministers and Prime Minister Julia Gillard‘s subsequent reshuffle showed the government was divided and dysfunctional.

Mr Dreyfus called on Opposition Leader Tony Abbott to direct Mr Pyne to withdraw and apologise for the comments.

“These immature and offensive comments have no place in Australian political debate,” Mr Dreyfus told journalists on Sunday.

“There is no place in Australian political debate for a comparison of any Australian government with Hitler’s Third Reich.

“These comments are deeply hurtful to holocaust survivors, they are deeply hurtful to any right thinking Australian.”

Mr Dreyfus said his own comments last year comparing Mr Abbott’s campaign on the carbon tax to Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels was different.

“That’s a quite different thing, it’s a very, very specific and targeted comment about the propaganda techniques.”
