Radio NZ and John Campbell posted an interview with John Key on their Checkpoint Facebook page.
Now you might say, “Why am I holding John Campbell responsible for the appalling comments that have been posted there?” But you have to really because he has set about crusading about a stupid little pin on the PM’s jacket.
Because of that, his legion of supporters think he is the man…but what the post unleashed is rather unsavoury and shows a nasty feral underbelly of New Zealand, and now also Radio NZ and John Campbell’s supporters.
First some dildo throwing and allusion to Nazis.
Radio NZ is state-funded, and this is what your tax dollars are funding. John Campbell is inciting that sort of behaviour too.
Here’s the real problem. They are wishing death on the Prime Minister for the “crime” of wearing a lapel pin. If they want to kill you for that, what won’t they kill you for?
Radio NZ and John Campbell should hold their heads in shame: for not moderating their supporters and for inciting criminal acts of threatening violence. I’m not sure the state broadcaster should be facilitating death threats and violence on the Prime Minister.
Hopefully the Police will take a good look at these people.
I wonder if Labour thinks this is kind of thing that will convince voters to change the government. Sadly, they probably do.
