Whale Oil was the first to break full details of the Anti Israel rally in Auckland. Flag burning, Swastikas and racist rhetoric all on offer.
But John Minto and Mana alone were the only politicians defending the flag burning.
Burning the flag is not just an insult - it represents the destruction of the nation and its people, violently.Minto said he was not aware of the burning, but did not believe it was inappropriate."I can't see what the problem is," Minto said. "Flags have been burnt in demonstrations and protests for hundreds of years so it's no big deal."It was not an organised part of the protest and someone must have taken it upon themselves to do it, he said.
As well as glorifying violence from Hamas, John Minto is happy to promote violence.
One of my greatest wishes is to see the New Zealand people reject such behaviour at the ballot box in September.
