Appalling anti-semitism allowed and enabled by Fairfax

Fairfax has an article about a fire at the Jewish Community Centre in Wellington.

A fire in the building that houses the Jewish Community Centre in Wellington has been contained.

The fire started in a refrigeration area of the Webb St building in the central city, assistant area commander Michael Dombroski said.

The fire was ablaze but contained to a small area.

There was a “huge” amount of smoke that went through the building meaning occupants  – including a kindergarten and the Holocaust Centre – were evacuated from the building.

Seven fire trucks were called to the scene just after midday on Thursday, and Webb St was cordoned off.

The fire’s cause will be investigated.

Fire and Emergency NZ were at the scene, and Webb St was  reopened at 1.40pm.

What is terrible is the anti-semitic comments that Fairfax is allowing, unmoderated, on their Facebook page.

There is talk about a “final solution”:

Gas leaks and parodies of goosestepping:

and more comments about gas leaks:

This is despicable behaviour by the commenters, but worse behaviour by Fairfax who allow these comments to stand.

KJ Gladwin seems to idolise Nazis…he even owns a Nazi dagger:

and:

and a Nazi SS Death’s Head flag:

With that sort of memorabilia it is very hard for KJ Gladwin to claim he was just joking, as if that was a joke anyway.

Fairfax has a problem, they need to moderate a lot more carefully on Facebook otherwise they are allowing neo-nazis and munters to associate with their brand and news.

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.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
