Peters castigates anti brigade
Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters has lashed out at what he describes as an irrational sport in New Zealand involving scoring cheap points by bashing America and Australia. "…there seems to be an irrational and growing sense of sport among some quarters in New Zealand where it is considered a perverse badge of honour to take cheap shots at the Australians and Americans."
Ummmm, to be criticized by Winston ‘racebaiting’ Peters (who has used xenophobic feelings towards Asians to build his political party) for attacking Australia and America (he forgot to mention England) is a joke for two reasons.
1: There are legitimate reasons to be uber critical of America and Australia, let’s see both refuse to admit Global Warming was happening even though both countries contribute massively to pollution levels, they are both responsible for the deaths of 655 000 people in Iraq, an illegal war started on false pretences and both countries have a despicable track record towards their indigenous peoples. The question shouldn’t be that Australia and America get criticized, the question should be why aren’t you criticizing them Winston?
2: To be told off by a Politician for legitimately criticizing America and Australia when Winston has made his political life racebaiting xenophobic feelings towards Asians simply isn’t credible.
