A racist at my table
Thinking more about the Greens new strategy of declaring war on NZ First, and it seems more and more like a terrible strategic blunder.
I’m watching my social media feeds full of NZ First supporters attacking Green Party supporters and Green Party supporters attacking NZ First supporters.
As I pointed out to a Green Party MP yesterday…
It’s going insane on social media, NZ First supporters are jumping Green supporters and Green Supporters are taking out NZ First supporters – you guys have unleashed a god damned social media war – what the fuck are you doing???
…so the reality is that activists from both political parties are going to rip each to pieces on social media and that will make it near impossible for any post election kiss and make up.
Winston is already using this attack by the Greens on his provincial jamboree tour and my understanding is that the Greens are all feeling wounded and sulky that their attack on Winston seems to have gotten such bad media attention.
Like it did when they decided to vote for the budget.
Like it did when they decided to run against Jacinda.
Like it did when they voted for Red Peak.
It’s like the Greens can’t think beyond 2 moves ahead.
So ultimately the question now becomes if the Greens sit down with NZ First in a Government after calling them racist – does that make the Greens hypocrites?
Because it kinda does doesn’t it?
Are the Greens saying that they are so crazed for power that they will sit down with racists just so they can get into Government?
Power crazed hypocrites and racists forming a Government based on mutual disrespect doesn’t sound very inspirational for the voters does it?
If Labour can’t form an alternative Government in September, that’s on the Green’s now and my understanding is that Labour strategists are privately furious at this latest Green Party fuck up.
The comment to me was “Are they (the Greens) doing this on purpose or are they actually stupid?”
Who can tell anymore?
