Andrew Little attracts Jew haters to his social media page

It appears Andrew Little has lost more support due to visiting a Jewish Community Centre.

After Mr Little posted about his visit to the Jewish Community Centre in Auckland this week it prompted a spate of other Facebook users to comment, including one who said “they didn’t learn much from the Holocaust in the way they’re treating Palestinians … shame on them”.

When another user challenged whether all Jewish people should be blamed for Israel’s actions, the first replied “death to them all” followed by an obscenity.

The comments have been slated by Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy and have since been deleted by Labour, which says in a comment below the post: “We condemn the anti-semitic comments posted on this photo and are actively removing any hateful comments.”

Mr Little said as soon as his staff became aware of it, they began to remove the comments.

They would continue to monitor the page. “We do not tolerate hate speech.”

Labour’s move to remove the comments was also criticised on his page – one person wrote, “if anyone sides with Palestine you delete it? Gutless racist National lite”.

Although I’d love to get stuck into Andrew Little at any opportunity, this is really about the feral underclass that inhabits the Internet.  

The post went up on Wednesday and Labour started deleting the comments later that day.

National Party-aligned blogger David Farrar posted screenshots of some of the worse examples saying it showed anti-Semitism was “alive and well”.

“Quite sickening that such a positive post by Andrew Little gets such vile comments.”

The rabbi at the Jewish Community Centre has not yet responded to a request for comment.

Dame Susan said the Jewish community had a productive meeting with Mr Little but decried “hateful, bigoted” posts made by other social media users in response to it.

“The posts demonstrate the prejudice they continue to face.” She said Holocaust survivors had told her “hate starts small” .

“They were right. We need to stand up and call hatred out whether it’s on Facebook or in front of us in the street.”

She said Anzac Day was a time for New Zealanders to remember what their ancestors fought and died for and to stand up against intolerance and prejudice.

Ferals aren’t capable of keeping that much information in the fronts of their minds at the same time.

But yes, Andrew Little has learned his lesson – the left in New Zealand do not openly support Israel or Jews, and if you do you must expect your supporters to lash out. Their thinking processes are amazingly simple: all Jews evil, like John Key and National, and all Palestinians are perfect.

What was he thinking…

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
