      This has potential to reach Rainbow Warrior diplomatic crisis level.
      Of course in the Rainbow Warrior case, the French just shrugged and moved on. The Chinese will probably do the same.

      ”The vehicular sabotage represents an escalation for the case, coming on the heels of recent vitriolic editorials in local Chinese-language media describing the professor and New Zealand-Chinese democracy activists as “anti-Chinese sons of bitches”.

      Looks like these Chinese have integrated well into our democratic society.

      Fark: I just read that group’s frontman’s rant in more detail as described in the article. What a fucking moron. Wants to send nz troops to the Mexican border !

      The singer also suggested that New Zealand sends troops to North America:
      “Get to the Mexican/USA border and defend that caravan of indigenous people seeking refugee status in the United Snakes of Ameri-KKK-a,” he urged.

      “They’re seeking refuge because their countries have been wrecked by that colonial power known as the USA.” He concluded the impassioned speech by saying “Death to all oppressors!”

      Look at this bozo ! What a runt – obviously a keyboard warrior and a total deadshit !
