Australian government MP George Christensen has introduced a bill to parliament that would see people who desecrated the Aussie flag sent to jail for one month.
Christensen, pictured here attending a far-right wing Reclaim Australia rally last year, wants to completely ban the burning, damaging, defacing and trampling of the flag, calling it a "hate crime" against Australia.
Currently there's no law outlawing desecration of the Aussie flag. For example, people are more than welcome to turn it into hideous shirts.
And some questioned whether Christensen had broken his own laws before they had even been introduced to the parliament, by tweeting out this image.
But Doug Steley, a former airman who comes from a large military family, posted this letter to the MP on Facebook, calling him a "pasty faced coward".
Doug said that he and many other Australians have fought for a country that "protects freedoms not removes them". He then included a little picture.
With this final burn 🔥🔥🔥
