Comment of the Day

George nails it again:

We are witnessing the leader of the opposition becoming increasingly irrational through his own insecurity and desperation to destabilise the National Government. His comments that the death threats directed at Paula Bennett were the consequence of marginalising NZers, and therefore explained the mood for such behaviour. This is unacceptable.

Labour’s deliberate policy to marginalise Asians has fueled the underbelly of the missing million. At least eight Asian students, in four separate incidents were attacked, robbed and assaulted in Auckland this week. However by applying the same rational directed at Paula Bennet’s death threats, Andrew Little can only see this as a consequence of all those pesky Asians bying our homes therefore, again, explains the mood for such behaviour.

The truth is Andrew, you are fueling the fire of NZ’s low life and are responsible for the increasing insecurities of all NZers. For that you have to take liability. Back off before it is too late.

There is a lot of merit in what George says. If Andrew Little and the Labour party feel no remorse in attacking Asian Kiwis then that sets the tone for any sort of interaction. As the message filters down that it is OK to “hit” Asians simply for having an Asian sounding name then the more feral supporters of the Labour party will take that to mean physically hit them as well.

Andrew Little, Phil Twyford and the Labour party have set the tone for how Asians are treated. They must accept responsibility for that in the same way they are claiming it is the the government’s fault for the increasing politically motivated violence that is occurring.

Desperation is a stinky cologne, but when you’ve got nothing else then you resort to bizarre behaviour. We are witnessing that from Labour.

Another commenter adds:

Agree with you completely. Little Angry doesn’t simply explain away the feral behaviour of the makers of the death threats, he projects an understanding towards those who made them. Doesn’t this make him the parliamentary representative of these ferals? Are they his true constituency both in morality terms and numbers? Is his self-esteem so lacking that he feels comfortable in offering degrees of understanding to these ferals? The antagonism expressed by Labour towards the Asians who are said to be dominating our housing market is counter to the inclusive society which we are told is emblematic of NZ. Labour aren’t simply down on their luck, they are fading into obsolescence…largely of their own making.

Labour MPs admit to me privately that they can’t and won’t win in 2017, and Andrew Little can be the one who takes the blame. That is until they sink so low in the polls then the Mike Moore plan comes into play to find a leader who will lose less than what Andrew Little is looking like.
