Chris Hipkins Says Polynesians Too Poor For Queenstown
Imagine if anyone other than a Labour MP engaged in this sort of casual racism? The outcry. The demands for not just an apology but de-platforming and a resignation.
Hipkins responded: "I think in regard to the latter part of the question, the member might like to consider how many of the people from those countries would be spending their money in Queenstown."
Hipkins later defended the remarks, telling Newshub: "Generally speaking, people from those countries aren't spending huge amounts of money in the tourist resorts of Queenstown."
Hipkins said he didn't have any data to back up his claims. He admitted making "a bit of an assumption" about Pacific people.
There you go - Pacific people. It all slipped out under pressure.
All too hopeless and poor to have any cash to splash in Queenstown.
That is what Labour have always thought of the Pacific community. Too stupid to follow Covid instructions so need a lockdown to keep them from freedoms.
Poor, brown, compliant.....keep them out of Queenstown......vote Labour.
