The video has already been viewed almost 200,000 times in just over 2-hours.

In the wake of an extraordinarily demoralising and baffling week of Australian politics, Tim Minchin's released a song dedicated celebrating marriage equality and slamming the government's proposed postal plebiscite.

It's not the first time a politically poignant song from Minchin went viral, with his "Come Home Cardinal Pell" song reaching more than 2 million views past year.

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

"But on the upside, this plebiscite might enlighten us - at least we'll know exactly how many Aussies are bigoted c***s".

The move to air the song on ABC's The Insiders has been lambasted by Communications Minister Mitch Fifield for their apparent prejudice

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 home...aphobic".

At the end of the tune, Minchin urges young Australians especially to make sure they take part in a postal vote if it does go ahead, telling them to prove the politicians wrong.

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

With polls showing most Australian's support marriage equality, the Government has nevertheless made a decision to proceed with a postal vote plebiscite to determine whether a marriage equality bill will be presented to parliament. "But let's drown the mofos in the "yes" votes".
