Richard Prosser who drops Muslim word-bombs.

What can we say to NZFirst MP Richard Prosser (other than “Prosser, you’re a Tosser!”) and Winston?

Well first: we all make mistakes, be man enough to admit yours and apologize (genuinely).  The comments Prosser made were racist, that’s “r-a-c-i-s-t.” Update: 15/2. Cam Slater at Whale has a good scoop here showing that the MP’s apology is totally disingenuous.  

Secondly: to Winston, don’t try and obfuscate, distract, side-step, placate. If you do, we’ll just label NZFirst a “racist party” – you’ve had trouble with that in the past.

Calling for people who “look like muslims” from “Wogistan” not to fly on western airplanes or targeted for special screening while people who don’t look like muslims (like Timothy McVeigh and Anders Brevik?) should not, was just plain ignorant.

So, what can we say to Richard Prosser? Well how about some wisdom from a Muslim, who fought and killed Kiwis, Mustafa Ataturk…inscribed in stone on the Anzac memorial at Gallipoli…

“Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives… You are now living in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours… You, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace, after having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.” ~ Ataturk, 1934.

The ignorance of racism (and Prosser’s statements) is their selectivity. Do his comments also apply to Anders Brevic, Timothy McVeigh and British rugby hooligans?

About coNZervative

A blog about politics, life, culture, literature, music and thought from Christchurch, New Zealand [NZ] (the home of 10,000 earthquakes since 4 Sept. 2010) built because of the bullying and cajoling of Liberal opinion-makers (journalism and Hollywood) against conservative-minded people who are as entitled to opinion and a perspective as anyone; and because Conservativism has served the world well. John Stringer is a New Zealander (Christchurch) in his 40s married to an American from Taco Bell; they have 5 adult children in 3 diff. countries. John is an ex-Anglican pastor, a teacher, published author (NZ), novelist (USA) and cartoonist (Aust, NZ), and has spent the last 25 years in NZ politics with the National party (he was a parliamentary candidate in 1999). There was a stint in London working for the British Conservative party as well, where he did media minding and campaign work with several Brit cabinet ministers, including Baroness Thatcher, Baroness Blatch, Michael Howard, Tom King, among others. He has an MA (classical studies, Victoria); is a graduate of the New York Film Academy; and has various awards for writing. His passions include British bulldogs, fly fishing, and history (Ancient and WWII). Winston Churchill was mainly a “Conservative” but also a “Liberal” MP between 1900-1964. A Member of Parliament for 64 years, he contested 21 parliamentary elections (for Oldham, Manchester North West, Dundee, and Epping/Woodford). Throughout his career Churchill stood for liberty. He believed in open debate and freedom of speech, and opposed any system or ideology that tried to dictate the way one should think. Churchill felt deeply that disagreements within the democratic system should not degenerate into personal animosities. RIDER: This site is not connected to nzconservative, a Catholic site, or NZ Conservative Party, although from time-to-time I share some of the views espoused by both groups and other sites I follow, as published; I am an independent thinker and blogger.

    Prosser right, you wrong

    Muslim is now a race, who’d a thunk it ?

    So Prosser’s a tosser, news at 11 type moment ? You can pick on McVeigh and Breveik precisely because they stand out as just about the ONLY two mass murderers in a terrorist way in the past 15 years who aren’t identifiably Islamic. Richard Reid didn’t “look” islamic either did he, but nonetheless tried to blow up an airliner in flight for religious reasons, Presbyterian was he ?

      What about the German race 1930-40s? Pol Pot and his Khymer Rouge? Russian communists early 20th C.? Mao Tse Tung and the Cultural Revolution? Rwanda? etc etc. We have to stop Muslim jihad, but it’s not a sole islamic preserve. Evil is cross-cultural.

  3. Perspective says:

    One of Prosser’s columns a couple of years ago in the same magazine was about his visit to the UK and he praised the industrious and peaceful way the Hindu Indians have woven their way into British society.

    Good post, John. As much as it vexes me to say it, I agree with you 100%.
