NZ First: Racists

Richard Prosser continues his "Bob the Builder" act, with a call for Muslim men to be banned from flying:

Mr Prosser, 45, said he wanted an end to "pandering to an upstart minority'' and a ban on young Muslims from flying.

"If you are a young male, aged between say about 19 and about 35, and you're a Muslim, or you look like a Muslim, or you come from a Muslim country, then you are not welcome to travel on any of the West's airlines,'' he wrote in his Eyes Right column in Ian Wishart's Investigate magazine.

Later in the article he added: "I will not stand by while [his daughters'] rights and freedoms of other New Zealanders and Westerners, are denigrated by a sorry pack of misogynist troglodytes from Wogistan.''

Its appallingly racist, but sadly what we've come to expect from Prosser. The question is why NZ First continues to tolerate him. They kicked out Brendan Horan, they can do the same to Prosser. If they don't, we can only conclude that they agree with his views.
