Not exactly Jon Stewart

A new facebook group has started up called “I am killing a kitten for every person who votes for the Green Party” (*)

This group is to encourage New Zealander’s to join the fight against hippies and social engineering by killing a kitten for every vote they receive this election, if we run out of kittens we will start using ducklings and hedgehogs.

It’s not outrageous, its clearly an attempt at humour, but it is sad what passes for humour among some. It speaks to a nasty worldview among these people. People like Emmy Gargiulo, National Secretary of Young Nats, Michael Mabbet, ex-Young Nat President, and youth activist/41 year old National Party pollster David Farrar.

So, if you’re thinking of voting National, remember the type of people who will be ticking the same box as you.

    If you’re thinking of voting LPGNZF, remember the type of people who are standing for them. Just a couple of nights ago, Matt Robson made fun of John McCain’s inability to hold his arms up above his head, after spending many years in a Vietnamese concentration camp.

    I don’t think the elderly would be very pleased with what an icon of the Left thinks about war veterans, especially since Helen Clark has gone to such great lengths to woo the elderly vote over the last nine years.

    Tim, if you are going to get all that way about things it pays to get your terms right.

    McCain was in a POW camp, which is a very different thing from a concentration camp. If you really cared you wouldn’t make mistakes like that, instead you appear to be just using McCain’s service as a bludgeon to hit the left with.

    Your second prargraph confirms this impression.

    For shame.

  3. coge 3

    SP, you have unmasked the hidden agenda of the VRWC. Best call the Herald.

  4. Stephen 4

    Tim, you really think he’d have mocked McCain if he knew what the reason was? Unless he said something like ‘McCain can’t even lift his arms properly, jeez, he only spent X years in a prisoner of war camp! Wuss!’.

    Edit-Kiwiblog post seems to show Robson in an exceptionally poor light, perhaps i’m a little off.

  5. cocamc 5

    Tim – exactly – what a disgrace on the Progressives.

    Also – the PM caught out again saying yes i was mistaken, we did reimburse Mike William’s trip to Melbourne.

  6. Kitty lover 6

    Hah. Michael Mabbet hasn’t been the Young Nats President since 2006. The Labour Party Research unit must have spent too much time out of the country to get its facts right. Move on to the next slur, guys.

  7. Pascal's bookie 7

    Saying someone is the President of the Young Nat’s is a slur?

    Fair enough.

  8. That was disgraceful if Robson said it.

    Kitty. I’ll update.

  9. Rakaia George 9

    Thanks for the link – have joined.

  10. higherstandard 10

    SP

    All this suggests is that there are buffoons on all sides of the political debate – hardly surprising.

  11. cha 11

    Here’s another one for ya RG. Make-Believe Maverick

  12. Billy 12

    For God’s sake, Steve, are you really so precious? Personally, I doubt it. So we are just left with: you will try to find any little thing to criticise people on the other side of the spectrum, no matter how petty. And no matter that it makes you look like the bossy self-appointed arbiter of all things (a trait you guys on the left seem to find hard to resist).

    And we’ve been down this path before. You will have lunatics like randal ticking the same box as you. So what?

  13. Chris G 13

    Fact: More dangerous entities exist ticking the boxes of the right wing?

  14. higherstandard 14

    Billy get with the programme – We have already established that SP has issues which often present as Winstonesque delusions of self grandeur.

  15. exbrethren 15

    Killing kittens and hedgehogs could be construed as quite a green act, ridding the country of pests. I hate cats.

    I saw Robson on TV and thought his McCain comment was pretty shoddy. I like McCain as much as felines but there was no need for such an idiotic comment.

  16. higherstandard 16

    mmmmmmm edit function

  17. The really have stepped it up a notch now that its become clear that they are going to loose the election.

  18. higherstandard 18

    To quote Sasha Cohen … “what about if the hedgehog was about to kill another hedgehog ? …… keeping it real.

  19. Matthew Pilott 19

    HS – wasn’t it “if you don’t eat this chicken, I’ll kill another chichen” to a bunch of vegans?

    And these ‘Winstonesque delusions of grandeur’, HS? Merely saying that makes you look like the most up-tight plonker imaginable – positively winstonesque. I’m not sure you realise that’s the effect you’re having – you sure remind me a hell of a lot more of Winston than SP does what with that wanky posturing. Somehow I doubt you see it, unless you’re consciously taking the piss out of yourself.

  20. Lampie 20

    Just thinking, stones and glass houses

  21. higherstandard 21

    Mat

    No it was the one where he was interviewing one of the animal protection groups – it was priceless stuff, about time for a replay on TV I would’ve thought.

    And thinking on it you’re a bit Winstonesque yourself – perhaps we’re all Winstonesque .. ah me gawd the humanity.

  22. Akldnut 22

    mmmmm…..Just thinking, sticks and stones

  23. higherstandard 23

    mmmmmmm…… just thinking, fairy cake and doilies.

  24. Matthew Pilott 24

    i’m thinking of the original Ali G – he was interviewing these hard-core vegetarians, and it started with ‘would you eat a big mac’, and so on (mcnuggets etc), and then he gobsmacked them with ‘what if I said if you don’t eat this chicken, then I’ll kill another chicken’. Priceless indeed!

    Yeah I do try and talk it up a fair bit…

  25. higherstandard 25

    Yep

    Remember that one as well – it really was LOL comedy.

  26. anonymoose 26

    Conor Roberts, Labour’s Rodney candidate and former NZUSA President, used a flyer which said “Vote for Conor or the Kitten gets it” in his campaign to become AUSA President, featuring a picture of a gun pointed at a Kitten which was comically posed with its hands up.

    It is not just National supporters with that kind of humour.

  27. Billy 27

    HS,

    I trust you are using LOL ironically. If not, I will ROTFLMAOSTCIIHO at you.

  28. Billy 28

    The cover of Madness’ 1980 EP had the band pointing a gun at a dog (Bassett hound as I recall) with the legend: Buy this album or the dog gets it. I predict SP will write to them to complain about this obscene behaviour.

  29. uroskin 29

    In Rotorua they have already started with drowning deer in the local lake

  30. Billy – now you’re just showing your age…

    And your awful taste in music…

  31. Akldnut 31

    Billy whats this bit STCIIHO???

  32. Billy 32

    “Scaring the cat if I had one”, apparently. It’s just all so stupid.

    And ‘sod, I was 3 in 1980 but very interested in second wave ska bands.

  33. Billy – in that case you’re only showing your awful taste in music. I half withdraw my comment and kinda apologise…

  34. Billy 34

    Mate, when I was 3, Madness were the duck’s ballocks.

  35. Matthew Pilott 35

    Whenever I think of a ska band I will think of the Christian Ska band Tane posted a while back. Something about running and hiding from Jesus. It was far too literal.

  36. NX 36

    Hey Steve – did you happen to go to school in the Waikato by any chance?

  37. toad 37

    It appears the offensive Facebook page has now been removed. Mission accomplished!
