The left-wing don’t understand that calling bans on people they disagree with actually gives the victim of their attacks more followers.
Look at what has happened with Milo Yiannopoulos.
A counter petition in support of controversial TVNZ broadcaster Mike Hosking is quietly gaining momentum online.
Petitioner Dan Gray started the counter-movement in a bid to “keep Mike Hosking at TVNZ for the same reasons people want the petition signed to get rid of him.”
The petition, set up on Wednesday afternoon, has since garnered several hundred signatories.
“Mike is a free thinker against politically correct crap” wrote one Hosking supporter. “I want a broadcaster who speaks his mind even if I don’t agree with it all the time.”
The petition was organised to counteract the anti-Hosking petition set up by lawyer Dan Wayman last week, asking that the Seven Sharp host “be removed from public broadcasting at TVNZ”.
