Is David Fane writing Maurice Williamson's jokes?
Minister made Muslim jokes before his racism remarks
Building Minister Maurice Williamson cracked jokes about Muslims at an awards ceremony – just days before he accused Kiwis of racism over foreign ownership.
Mr Williamson climbed on stage to present two awards and asked MC Oscar Kightley, the Samoan star of Sione's Wedding, if his "papers were in order".
He went on to tell jokes making fun of Islam. One asked: "What is the difference between Muslims and Kiwis? Muslims get to commit adultery and get stoned, Kiwis get stoned and commit adultery."
Mr Williamson also quipped about the weather being "Shi'ite in the morning and Sunni in the afternoon," a reference to the two main denominations of the religion.
After claiming we were being racist in our opposition to Crafar Farms Maurice Williamson is now caught out using racist jokes, not once, not twice, but three times???
Note concerns about Crafar Farm sales have nothing to do with Natural Dairy NZ setting up a new political Party here; it has nothing to do with Natural Dairy NZ 'donating' $200 000 to the National Party; it has nothing to do with China lending 0% interest loans to buy NZ land; it has nothing to do with China not allowing NZers buy Chinese land; it has nothing to do with the financial scandals involving the Chinese financiers; it has nothing to do with economic sovereignty - oh no. All concerns about Crafar Farm sales are just because we are racist!
Well if holding up legitimate concerns about Crafar Farms is 'racist' what does that make jokes at the expense of Muslims and Samoans?
Who is writing Maurice's jokes? David Fane?
Should we be surprise by the $200 000 donated self interested hypocrisy or surprised that after the Prime Ministers cannibalism joke, Maurice didn't just show up in a blackface minstrel act?
Are you still laughing Maurice?
