Speaking out

In my post below on hate speech, I said that if the government doesn't like racial hatred, then they should speak out against it. And that's exactly what they're doing over the vandalism of Jewish graves at Makara cemetary. Chris Carter is seeking a formal Parliamentary condemnation of anti-Semitism, and Michael Cullen, Keith Locke and Peter Dunne have all denounced it.

By contrast, the National Front's Kyle Chapman seems to be implying that this is a "hate hoax", done by Jews to get sympathy and media attention. What a prick.
