Winston comes good over snowflake and media outrage

Winston Peters looks like the cat that has licked the cream at the moment.

Bill English gifted him the superannuation platform, and Nick Smith is handing over RMA reform control to Maori and now he’s come out against the fascist behaviours of the snowflakes at Auckland University and at AUT while giving the media a good swift kick in the cods:

New Zealand First leader Winston Peters has questioned the media’s role in pressure that caused a controversial European Students Association club to disband.  

People sat in the aisles of a Victoria University lecture theatre to hear Peters speak tonight, breaking into applause when he entered.

His speech addressed the Government’s policy to raise the age of retirement – telling the young audience to not believe those who said the future was unaffordable.

And in a lively 30 minute question and answer session after his speech, Peters said the mainstream media couldn’t be trusted to reliably inform.

“I don’t know if you saw in Auckland University recently, the European club got shut down. No doubt you all followed it,” Peters said.

“Isn’t it amazing. You have got the Maori club, you’ve got the Chinese club, you’ve got every sort of club.”

Peters said the Auckland University Students Association had made no comments supporting fascism or the Nazis, yet was effectively condemned by the Herald and others for not speaking out against fascism.

That showed the mainstream media’s desire to suppress dissenting voices, he said.

Spot on Winston.
