National are desperately attempting to turn NZ’s nonappearance at the Holocaust memorial into a Corbyn antisemitism moment and it’s sick as well as obscenely hypocritical.
Let’s be clear, the Holocaust was a horrific moment in human history that stains us to the bones. It is a moment the planet should collectively commemorate so that such evil may never poison our species again and it is genuinely sad that we were unable to send representatives, but what Gerry Brownlee is trying to do here is make it a political issue by attempting to do what every hard right arsehole does, and that is purposely misinterpret anti-zionism on the Left as antisemitism.
To which I say, ‘Fuck you Gerry Brownlee’.
Where the hell do you get off painting this as antisemitism when YOU and YOUR leader are gleefully meeting a fucking Nazi apologist you sanctimonious prick!
Here you are…
…with THIS Nazi apologist…
…so Gerry can take his insinuations of left wing antisemitism and stick it where the sun don’t shine. We aren’t meeting with Nazi sympathisers and calling it a privilege you spiteful clown.
