Open Our Borders To Zimbawe’s Farmers - Libz

Press Release

For Immediate Release

Open Our Borders To Zimbawe’s Farmers - Libz

Libertarianz deputy leader Richard McGrath called on the government to open its borders to white Zimbabwean farmers, as that country sinks further into lawlessness.

"The fawning chardonnay socialists such as Helen Clark and Chris Laidlaw must be choking on their Nutri-grain as they watch their Marxist pin-up boy Mugabe's descent into madness," he said. "This tyrant has now declared white farmers to be enemies of the state, with his followers intent on destroying them by occupying and burning their farms."

"Where are the anti-racism champions such as John Minto?" asked McGrath. "Strangely silent when it's a black man advocating the systematic slaughter of a white minority."

McGrath wonders what the new Commonwealth CEO is doing. "Why is Don McKinnon still sitting on his hands when people are being murdered and the rule of law is being overturned? Why isn't he denouncing these savages?"

Libertarianz believe New Zealand should open its borders to refugees from all countries who are prepared to live under our laws and respect the rights of other New Zealanders. "Mugabe has just returned from a summit of fellow dictators in Cuba," said McGrath. "This seems to have severed completely the last threads of his sanity and we should now anticipate an escalating series of atrocities. Perhaps it is time for those New Zealanders concerned at the plight of Zimbabweans to dig into their pockets as private citizens and fund a revolution to overthrow this despot."
