Cameron Slater’s co-blogger Steady Eddy is back to his creepy brownshirt tricks again and this time his target is Labour Party candidate Kate Sutton. I’ll say right now that I’m concerned about giving this filth any oxygen but considering Eddy’s previous attacks on Sutton have been approvingly linked to by National Party blogger David Farrar I’d say the damage has been done.
To be honest I’m too angry to say much about this post other than I hope Kate gets the police involved and finds out who this little creep is because this is sickening even by Cameron’s standards and it shows all too clearly that nasty misogynist rightwing discourse is still alive and well in the blogosphere. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: boys (because that’s all you are, at best) your hatred and fear of women shows only how weak and vile you are. Go back to your dirty little single bedrooms and leave politics to the adults.
And as for David Farrar? Well David, I just want you to realise you have facilitated and encouraged this shit. Tane warned you about where it was going and you tried to play innocent. You need to take a long hard look at yourself and the culture of filth you are facilitating instead of trying to worm your way out of it. You’re a grown man and you have influence over Cameron. Take some personal responsibility for this and tell him to remove this post. It’s what decent adults do.
Update: within ten minutes of this post Eddy’s post was removed from Cameron’s site. We have however, saved a copy and will be providing it to Kate if she wants to take this issue further.
