In attempting to defend Peter Leitch, Michelle Boag bewilderingly pours a can of petrol upon herself and lights a match.
Monks in Vietnam could take lessons from ‘Chelle.
While the country was debating whether or not Peter Leitch is a racist for a comment that few others saw, Michelle Boag comes out and shows what real racism looks like.
…what the bloody hell her skin colour has to do with anything is utterly beyond me. That’s just such a racist, no way you can misinterpret it, comment.
Michelle Boag is to racial harmony what Trump is to feminism.
Secondly, the young woman is obviously upset and not grandstanding. The viral nature of the content clearly went well beyond what she may have intended. She’s taken things down and has tried to put out a hand of reconciliation.
Do I think it was a run-of-the-mill-middle-class-emotional-millennial-over-share? I sure do. Did she do it to get famous? That’s mean spirited and churlish.
The second rule of PR is shut Michelle Boag up. The first rule of PR is NOT MATTHEW HOOTON!
To use a Keyism, at the end of the day, ultimately it’s Peter’s fault. He shouldn’t ever talk to anyone under 45.
We now have death threats to the young woman, following racial threats and abuse directed at Peter. We are on track for this to dominate 72 hours of the news cycle. Own that NZ, this is what happens when journalism bases its news on social media fights.
Meanwhile, the only person to do an actual evaluation of Israel’s threat to go to war with us has been Pattrick Smellie who reveals that actually Israel’s threat of war against us is very real and may have already been launched as a Cyber attack.
This as our Foreign Minister’s electorate is targeted with slurs…
…it’s incredible that Boag has managed to make things worse.
