    Shouldn’t we run this by Phil Goff, Jacinda, Auckland Peace Action, FIANZ and Antifa first? Murray seems like a bit of a nazi.

    • Andy says:

      Douglas Murray is a far right Nazi.

      We need to ban him from the country..

      All NZers agree with me, without exception.

        You’ll get another bite at the cherry when Jordan B Peterson arrives in New Zealand next month. Must be like Christmas for you.

    • Richard Christie says:

      “Murray seems like a bit of a nazi.”

      If he is, then he is one that certainly does his research homework.

      Both speakers are well spoken and erudite, I regret not being able to attend.

    Dr Cornel West is a well known race-bater.

    • Nick J says:

      I’ve watched him, what a racist. Of course the world is my fault, being a patriarchal hetero male, but hell looking white is the nail in my coffin.

    Never mind all that , – WHO’S doing the catering? And are there going to be doughnut’s with real cream fillings being served?,- And flaky pastry sausage rolls as well ?

    My suggestion from Martyn Bradbury’s column: ‘By banning Don Brash, the Woke Left strike another blow for recruiting fascists’

    ‘National MP Chris Bishop has confirmed he will still speak at Massey University next week, after criticising a decision to block Don Brash from speaking there.
    Mr Bishop wrote to the university’s vice-chancellor Jan Thomas to request she reverse her decision, which he described as “appalling”.
    He said he had yet to get a response to his letter, but had decided to go ahead with his speaking engagement.
    “I’m going to go, I think that cancelling the speech in protest at a cancelled speech would be a bit of a strange reaction. So I’m going to go and give a speech defending the principles of free speech.”
    The leader of the National Party, Simon Bridges, was scheduled to speak at Massey University’s – Manawatū Campus this afternoon.’

    I rest my case:

    On the other hand, the authority who banned Brash may know very well that by taking that action was encouraging the far right to use this as a point of attack. Not every person running a university is a left leaner.

  5. Michael Wynd says:

    I note that there is no evidence of a plethora of groups spring up to oppose these two men speaking. No threats to deplatform them or to setup protests. The double standard is quite telling.
