The dispute erupted following an ABC interview in which Mr McGowan refused to level any criticism at China's authoritarian regime and criticised Mr Hastie's remarks likening the west's handling of Beijing's ambitions to Allied miscalculations in the defence of Western Europe during World War II.

Just hours after WAtoday published Mr Hastie's reply to the Mr McGowan's comments, the Premier's strategic adviser Mark Reed posted a tweet referring to the spat.

"I've always found that line whereby someone has given service to their country, or excelled in a field and then people think that person's previous accomplishments give them some sort of permission to behave like an absolute deads--t is odd and troubling," Mr Reed wrote.

"Doing something great, or dangerous, or even noble does not give anyone permission to act or speak free of critique.

"It's almost fascist to suggest otherwise."

Mr McGowan had made several criticisms of comments made by Mr Hastie in an article published on Nine news sites including The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and WAtoday.

In a letter sent to Hong Kong protesters seen by WAtoday, Mr McGowan said he believed Mr Hastie's "extreme and inflammatory language" was "damaging to our economic relationship with China".

'We will not repent': Liberal MP Andrew Hastie hits out at China ban

  'We will not repent': Liberal MP Andrew Hastie hits out at China ban Liberal MP Andrew Hastie says he and Senator James Paterson are “not going to repent” after China cancelled the visas for the pair after taking umbrage to comments made by the Liberal politicians. “We’re free to speak our minds on issues,” Mr Hastie told Sky News host Peta Credlin. “We’re always going to defend Australian sovereignty, our values, our interests, and people can’t speak up for themselves like Dr Yang Hengjun… and also Australian Uighurs, who have loved ones interned in China.

Equivocation happens when a word , phrase, or sentence is used deliberately to confuse, deceive, or mislead by sounding like it’s saying one thing but actually saying something else. Equivocation comes from the roots “equal” and “voice” and refers to two-voices; a single word can “say” two different things.

This word is often pointed to Chinese due to Indonesia's relation with PRC.[23]. From bung, to go bung "Originally to die, then to break down , go bankrupt, cease to function [Ab. bong dead ] Use of both "pribumi" and "non-pribumi" by government departments was banned by President B.J. Habibie

This was in response to a petition sent to Mr McGowan signed by 23 Hong Kong protesters living in WA who said they were "victims of China and the Chinese just as much as the Uighurs and Tibetans" and were distressed the Premier condemned Mr Hastie over his remarks.

A spokesman for Mr McGowan said the Premier had raised his concerns directly with the Prime Minister about improving Australia's relationship with China.

"The Premier's criticism of Liberal Party MPs damaging our important economic relationship with China has not changed," he said.

"Hundreds of thousands of WA jobs rely on our trade relationship with China, and attacking our trading partner is very dangerous."

Mr McGowan's office did not respond to questions about Mr Reed's tweet, but said it had now been deleted.

Mr Hastie declined to comment but a spokesman from his office said: "This simply demonstrates that the Premier and his team are non-serious players in the strategic environment."

Mr Reed, who describes himself on his Facebook page as "potty mouth-in-chief", faced questions about vulgar tweets when he was an unsuccessful Labor candidate at the 2016 federal election.

Undoubtably and undoubtedly are both well-formed words with clear, distinct meanings, yet the former is often used in place of the latter, giving rise to the mistaken belief that undoubtably is always wrong.

The West Australian reported Mr Reed likened mining magnate Gina Rinehart to the fictional Star Wars character Jabba the Hutt and said of WA businessman Andrew Forrest: "F--k I hate Twiggy".

At a Business News breakfast on Thursday, the Premier doubled down on his criticism of Mr Hastie and Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton.

He said the federal government could take up human rights issues with China in the same way they could with any country.

"But to go public and call them Nazis or compare them to the German invasion in France in 1940 or to as Mr Dutton sort of screamed at them public is just stupid, ridiculous," he said.

"It's not diplomacy, it's just immaturity.

"Mr Dutton said something like, they don't share our values.

"Well, lots of countries around the world have different governments, different systems, different versions of democracy, different values to Western Australia, in fact I'd go so far as to say virtually every country does.

"So do we then say to every country around the world, we'er not going to trade with you because you have a different set of values or a different system of government to Australia?"
