The 'Glen Beck' of New Zealand Michael Laws has done it again. Not content with the standard facist line of hate, bigotry, jingoism and neo-colonialism this angry white male has called for 'The Final Solution', sterilize the underclass. Check out the Post story at Stuff. This is intolerable and all NZers of conscious need to put a stop to it. That's why I'm calling for a letter campaign to Radio Live and Sunday Star Times to demand he resign.
This kind of open unabashed vile hatred has no place within a society of liberal principles of universality, equality and freedom. We should not only reject his ideas but reject the idea that we should even have this conversation. This has no place in the public discourse, would you like to hear someone debating whether rape should be legal, or sodomites be flogged. This is the level at which Laws is operating.
Particularly shameful in this case is the support of Radio Live for this 'man'. Trying to get some of that Jon Stewart edgyness, they claim to facilitate interesting ideas and debates. There is no debate to be had unless we wish to fundamentally undermine the core substance of democracy and subject the vulnerable to further maliciousness and debasement.
I urge you to write a sincere letter the good old fashioned way to the following:
PO Box 8880
Sunday Star Times
attn: the Editor
