W-H-A-T??? You mean creating a common enemy & provoking protestors has only built the movement and there are more now?
On Day 2, the factions were turning on each other and they were imploding – they had failed to enter Parliament, the momentum had peaked and was collapsing
But what did Trev do?
He poured petrol on the fire and demanded Police clear the lawn – HE provoked this!
The lengths with which some of the NZ Twitter community are going in defending Trevor today is fucking extraordinary!
LOOK AT THE LIVESTREAM – he recruited people with his temper tantrum – are you all so tribal you will not see?
He poured petrol on this!
Watching the glee many on the twitter left seem to take at watching poor people get bashed up the Police has been eye opening hasn’t it?
De-escalation by the Police & the removal of clubs from the Frontline are essential moves that will desperately turn the heat down here – the majority aren’t Nazi white supremacists threatening Parliament they are angry frightened people whipped into ignorant Frenzy at worst.
I never thought I’d ever get to the stage in NZ politics where I was holding back the Left from calling on the the State to smash their fellow citizen – I always thought that was a threat from the Right!
We need to be crueller to corporations and kinder to people
After inciting, recruiting and prolonging this protest with his temper tantrum, the Speaker now turns on the sprinklers for spite – why is the rageaholic man child still running things?
If Key had pulled this stunt the Left would be screaming!
There is a long history of occupations on the lawns of Parliament – short of sending in Cops with clubs, we have to accept the provocation Trevor’s temper tantrum has provoked is an occupation that will leave later rather than sooner.
Let’s hope the rain can wash this away over the weekend and he doesn’t just try and bash his way out.
Great work Trev!
