PRE WARNING: I WILL BE ATTACHING IN THE FEATURE PHOTO THE IMAGE OF THE FACEBOOK POST. I DO NOT AGREE WITH THE IMAGE, HOWEVER IT'S GOOD FOR CONTEXT.

Bernie Finn MP, Shadow Minister for Autism, recently made a post regarding Daniel Andrews. The problem with this post being that there was an image of Andrews, depicting a disability. Bernie Finn is supposed to be a Minister for people with autism, a developmental disability. A disability that he is in turn mocking with the post of Andrews. 

Why should our people, especially those who may have family or friends who have autism, have to listen to a Minister mock and invalidate a disability when he is supposed to represent and hear your needs? Why should this man still have power in our government, when he cannot give the people he is meant to be representing respect and understanding that they need and deserve from someone who has a seat in Parliament. Scott Morrison, Michael O'Brien, and those in the Victorian Parliament need to consider their values before letting a man like this continue to hold his seat and be able to make the harmful and ableist remarks, as demonstrated by the Facebook post on his page. 

Bernie needs to go not only for the sake of the people he has inevitably mocked, but also to prevent future harm of ableist and continuous misrepresentation, as he clearly has no care for those in the community with Autism, or other disabilities. 

Bernie is a bully and a disgrace, not only to the Victorian government, but to the rest of Australia. Sign this petition and make YOUR voices heard.
