The left really don’t like democracy

If Winston Peters decides to go with National then expect more of this sort of stuff from the left-wing.

Hate speech has been spray painted on the Auckland home of a National Party supporter.

Grey Lynn resident and chairman of National’s Mt Albert electorate Johannes Tietze said he attended National Party general election celebrations at SkyCity with his wife on Saturday and returned home late in the evening.

Tietze said he awoke on Sunday morning to find the words “blood on your hands” plastered in red spray paint across his fence.

“More than anything, I was just in complete shock,” Tietze said.

“What kind of sore loser does something like this?”

Probably a Labour supporter…in Jacinda’s own electorate.

Tietze’s property was the only house to be tagged, he said.

He had displayed a small National Party hoarding throughout the election which he believed was the reason for the attack.

“It just felt very personal. My wife was very upset,” he said.

Despite the vandalism, it would not stop Tietze from expressing his opinion, he said.

“New Zealand, as a nation, encourages the sharing of opinion. This is just a reminder that not everyone is as liberal in their thinking.

Neighbours and drivers passing the property stopped and expressed their ill feelings towards the tagging, Tietze said.

“We have a great community here and within minutes of posting the images to Facebook, we had people contacting us offering to lend a hand and help clean up.”

Tietze said police had not been contacted but Auckland Council was, and the graffiti was cleaned up in a “couple of hours”.

The Electoral Commission said it wasn’t a matter it would comment on, but a matter for police.

It was in Jacinda’s electorate, perhaps Mr Tietze should go have a chat about her relentlessly negative and nasty supporters.
