The loony left are feral and out of control. They are now hurling death threats at Paula Bennett.
Paula Bennett says she will not be put off making public appearances despite an online threat which said someone should “shoot the b**** dead” at her next public outing.
The Social Housing Minister said this morning that she referred all violent threats to the police.
In a Facebook post two weeks ago, a user wrote: “People own guns out there I dare any[one] to shoot the b**** dead at [her] next public appearance.
The person added: “Gosh I hope keys is standing beside her, 2 birds 1 bullet.”
Speaking to reporters at Parliament this morning, Mrs Bennett said violent threats affected her family more than her.
“When you’ve got your own kids pointing out on social media that someone should shoot me at my next public event it’s pretty distressing…”
She did not think she was being targeted, despite a series of incidents in the last few weeks.
At a visit to Whanganui last week protesters had been “aggressive” and police had been called in as a result.
“They had sex toys with my name on them and that sort of thing. So the whole thing was a bit unsavoury, to be fair.”
