Classy

National’s ill advised attacks on Jacinda Ardern have shriveled in the sunlight, leaving only their reliably suggestible lunatic fringe:

Jacinda Ardern responds to bizarre hate mail with a grammar correction

Labour Deputy Leader Jacinda Ardern has publicly responded to an “anonymous correspondent” who sent her a hateful message.

“The irregular use of capitals and slightly off centre clippings in this letter really bothers me. Please pay more attention next time. #itsthelittlethings”

Ms Ardern’s response has clearly hit a chord with her Facebook followers – the post has received more than 4000 likes in three hours.

Classy.

Perhaps it was Mathew Hooton. He seems to be genuinely obsessed with Ardern, and can’t stop attacking her on RNZ. Quite a chat on twitter about his little fixation here.

    Typical misogynist rubbish, too many of our female politicians have had to put up with this drivel over the years.

      Hooton in particular has a problem with women in power and he tends to get hysterically fixated on them. Helen Clark really sent him over the edge many times …or it may be the booze (there were times watching Citizen A that I thought that he was going to throw up in Bomber’s lap – which I would have liked to see).

    Too many idiots send abuse to politicians all the time. Generally too gutless to put their name on it.

    Normally it doesn’t get a reply – but all credit to Jacinda – turning it into a positive for her.

    • James 2.1

      I see even WO made her reply the “sledge of the day”.

      You know she’s done a fantastic job of something when even he is saying what a great response it is.

      • Muttonbird 2.1.1

        You associate ‘fantastic job’ with approval from Slater. What makes Slater the arbiter of great responses?

        Betrays your lunatic rwnj position.

        • WILD KATIPO 2.1.1.1

          Hehehehe….. WO.

          Still smarting for paying the price of being a complete arsehole. Of course he would say that… hes trying to put on the ‘ reasonable Mr Nice guy ‘ act to try and redeem himself.

        • james 2.1.1.2

          No – my point was that it was a fantastic response.

          In fact such a brilliant response that even an idiot like slater, who rarely if ever has nice things to say about the left gives it the credit it deserves.

    • bwaghorn 2.2

      the problem is james is that the fact that into days ‘rural news ‘ rag the ‘ag twits’ section page 20 has a full on go at labour and Ardern , this is your sides dirty politics team swinging into action , not so random mutterings of a lost fuck wit

  3. Ad 3

    She should read out all her mean tweets on Youtube.

  4. One Two 4

    Nothing classy about the response from Adern…

    Classy does not exist in the NZ political landscape

    No one shred!

  5. Enough is Enough 5

    Consistent personal attack on a popular politician never work. We just have to look at the last 10 years with one glaringly obvious example to show that.

    • But for a few little issues such as the TTPA and Pike River,…

      He knew his time was up when Trump put the final boot into his globalist aspirations.

  6. nzsage 6

    keep up the good work Jacinda it’s clear you have those nasty Natz rattled.

    As for Hooton, his ranting’s lack both class and credibility. His time in the limelight is fast fading.

  7. Sutton's li'l helper 7

    Jacinda derangement syndrome?

  8. A baseless desperate attack with terrible grammar – come on NZ Herald political staff – fess up, who sent it?

  9. There’s actually no evidence this was sent by anyone on the right.

    It could easily be a false flag operation by the left.

    I could well be wrong, but I would guess at that as the most likely origin of the insult.

    Its just too patsy otherwise.

    And the childish cowardly attempt to link it to and smear Hooton makes a left wing source even more likely.

    Just ask yourself, who gains from this?

  10. Siobhan 10

    Its funny, almost every day I’ve been reading in the blogs about how amazing Jacinda is, and about her strong Left wing positions, but I’m still trying to find any real account of her beliefs/stance/lines in the sand…could anyone please direct me to something substantive?? Maybe an essay or political piece she’s written at some point in a local paper??
