Brash: white supremacist group ‘anti-Kiwi’
National Party Leader Don Brash has attacked a poster campaign inciting racial violence as “anti-Kiwi”.
The posters, hung in some Wellington suburbs, call for race riots, similar to those that took place in Sydney at the weekend.
They are believed to be the work of a small white supremacist group calling itself The White Crusaders of the Racial Holy War.
“There is no place in New Zealand for these kinds of threatening, inflammatory actions. National condemns any calls for violence or racial intolerance,” says Dr Brash.
“The idea that some people cannot have the same depth of feeling for this country because of the colour of their skin or their ethnic background is bigoted nonsense.
“We are all New Zealanders and we all love this country.”
Dr Brash described the group behind the poster campaign as “a small, fascist underbelly, hell-bent on causing division and destroying New Zealand’s egalitarian ethos. They are thugs and bigots”.
“Only with the inclusion of all people, from all walks of life and all racial backgrounds, all being treated equally as New Zealanders, will New Zealand prosper as a successful nation in the modern world.”
