Labour attack ‘brainless sheep’

How not to build your voter base – over the past ten years Labour have lost a lot of voters, many of whom have voted National.  To rebuild their support they need to attract many of those voters to come back to Labour. Saying things like this is hardly going to help – from Labour Tauranga:

It’s easier to control people who have no money you see, they have less choices.

Blame everyone you know that votes National.

How anyone can think that a government who is intent on destroying the country and selling it to anyone who’ll buy are worth the air in their lungs amazes us! Brainless sheep.

I’ve seen this sort of thing said from anonymous commenters on blogs like The Standard but it’s a different matter coming from an official looking Labour source:

This was probably just one person from Labour in Tauranga demonstrating what a brainless sheep they are  (even though they referred to plural in “How anyone can think that a government who is intent on destroying the country and selling it to anyone who’ll buy are worth the air in their lungs amazes us!”), but it doesn’t look good for the party.

    The logic is impeccable.

    Labour are the smart choice, it’s full of intelligent people who care.
    People vote for National, the party of evil.
    Therefor anyone who doesn’t vote for Labour is either evil, stupid or ‘sheep’.
    Attack everyone who doesn’t vote for Labour as sheep and stupid and evil.
    Result; electoral victory!

    It’s the Hillary road to success.

      Yes Chuck, and the fact that Labour hasn’t won the Tauranga electorate seat anytime in living memory, is hardly surprising, given the level of intellect displayed in the comment above

      FFS! As much as I’d love to lend them a shovel to dig their own grave, they don’t appear to need any assistance… 😀

    Shipping costs is the excuse. It’s not the reason.
