Greens go wobbly at the knees at Winston’s speech

Winston Peters’ speech has caused the Greens to get a bunch in their Y-fronts.

Winston Peters has defended using a solemn occasion in Parliament to attack the Government’s immigration policies.

The NZ First leader was taking part in a series of speeches by party leaders who were expressing their condolences over the Orlando shooting that left 49 dead.

But while the other party leaders confined themselves to sorrow and sympathy, Mr Peters warned New Zealanders didn’t know who was coming into their country.

He said border control was lax and vast numbers of immigrants were being allowed in.

“We are inviting that problem by the looseness and the cavalier attitude we’re taking,” he said.  

Labour and Green Party MPs posted comments on social media describing Mr Peters’ speech as “shameful” and “disgraceful”.

He later told reporters he had been right to raise the issues of border control and immigration.

“I think it’s time for the West to talk about it, it’s having a dramatic effect on the situations in the United States and Britain,” he said.

“Just because some sickly white liberals and cultural fellow travellers can’t make a stand is no reason why we shouldn’t.”

I don’t think Winston Peters really cares. His strong words will resonate while the weasel words of the other leaders will be forgotten. If not already, then certainly by the weekend.

Perhaps Winston chose the wrong time to give his views, but the words he said needed to be said.

The sopping-wet liberal hand-wringing from the Greens and others is what is going to get us into the same situation in Orlando, or Paris or indeed Tel Aviv.
