Staged walkout, assisted by complicit Media Party operatives

Dance of the Desperates?

Dance of the Desperates?

The opposition are so busy being offended by John Key that they have confused their message.

A fresh uproar has erupted in Parliament after Opposition female MPs staged a mass protest over prime minister John Key’s claim that Labour was “backing rapists” and murderers.

The attack was made during heated debate about Kiwi detainees on Australia’s Christmas Island, where they are awaiting deportation.

Parliament’s Speaker David Carter said Key’s remark on Tuesday had overstepped the mark but admitted he had not heard it.

“Had I heard the remark…I would have ruled it to be unparliamentary and required the prime minister to withdraw and apologise for it,” Carter said.   

But he said he was powerless to act now because he could only take action at the time the offending remark was made.

His refusal to intervene had Opposition MPs up in arms and sparked protests by its female members.

At least 12 female MPs either walked out or were asked to leave the debating chamber after standing one by one in defiance of Carter to stand and demand an apology from the prime minister. Some said they took offence as victims of sexual abuse, while others cited the strong stand they had taken against sexual violence. Four male MPs also walked out, including Green Party co-leader James Shaw.

What are they actually saying? They want rapists and sex offenders to be given rights?

I can’t understand it.

Someone might line up a victim and ask them what they think of MPs walking out because rapists and sex offenders rights are important to Labour.

Wheninrome commented:

Why do these female victims who just happen to be Labour MPs think that John Key is trivialising rape. You might have thought he was going hard on those perpetrators and the Female Victims of abuse, who just happen to be Labour party MPs and who just happen to have walked out of Parliament today, might have supported his stance. Wrong, cause it just doesn’t fit – they are happy to use their past abuse for Labour’s purposes, now that is what I call trivialising something.

What am I missing here? Lefty members walk out of parliament because JK makes a statement of fact. What the heck has detained pedos, rapists and violent offenders got to do with their plight? I am unable to make the connection. Seems that these lefty mutts want to support these ferals. Ferals that do not want to live here either. They want to run a country, they couldn’t run a bath.

I don’t think Labour has really thought this through. It appears they have confirmed for us all that Labour is sticking up for:

  • NZ-born Australian rapists
  • NZ-born Australian child molesters and
  • NZ-born Australian murderers
  • who all want to STAY IN Australia

How is that going to help win votes in West Auckland? Or the rural heartland?

It’s a wonky jihad that John Key has turned the tables on. He said what every middle NZ voter says…stuff them, they are hardened criminals and no one wants them except Labour.

Quite how John Key wanting hardened criminals to stop in jail is trivialising rape is beyond me. Grandstanding in parliament claiming you were sexually abused or assaulted or harassed to score a political point is about as trivial as you can get.
