Someone called Gary Burns sent David Leyonhjelm and Cory Bernardi an email:
If you two Un-Australian pathetic little turds are not happy with our multi-cultural Australian society why don’t you pack up your Mrs.and the kids and “ f ** k off ” out of our country.
There is no such thing as free speech in Australia.
If you two dangerous hate mongering bastards were to publish images ridiculing Muslims or Jews on the internet contemptuously it would be an unlawful act under the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977. ( NSW ).
According to you two incongruous imbeciles it would be free speech to incite hatred against the Australian Jewish & Muslim Communities.
Over my dead body !
Heh – well talk about leading with your chin. Reminds me of this classic line:
Princess Leia: I’d rather kiss a wookie.
Han Solo: That can be arranged.
David Leyonhjelm however, being polite to a fault, replied as follows:
Go fuck yourself you communist turd.
and then again
It appears you have not yet acted on my advice. Please do so. Go fuck yourself as soon as possible. The world will be a better place.
Now David, that sets a very poor example; it should be “Kind Regards” not just “Regards”. You risk sounding abrupt and contemptuous. It is the little things that make people feel appreciated.
So how has our correspondent responded?
In what can only be described as an horrendous attack on myself, not only Senator David Leyonjhelm’s personal abusive and disgusting innuendo I am dealing with, there are also other parties wishing the same disgusting outcome to my person. [Organisation], an organisation that prides itself on mentoring younger adults, has emailed me other disgusting suggestions I should perform…Someone within that organisation that has access to their email address [email address here] , has sent numerous emails.
I am now in fear of my life and will be pursuing the NSW Police to see if I can obtain Apprehension Violence Orders against Senator David leyonjhelm and the person at [organisation]

Update: David was provoked into the second email by a complaint from Burns to the Senate President:
