Threats of violence continue as fascist duo get visas

“We are alarmed at the impending arrival of white supremacists Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux, and will aim to organise a non-violent anti-racist response to any public events in Auckland,” said Valerie Morse, member of Auckland Peace Action.

“Lauren Southern has been denied entry to the UK. Under NZ law this means she should not have automatic entry, yet this is precisely what has happened. We have to wonder why she has been given a special pass into the country to bring her hate speech. We are concerned Immigration NZ does not have correct information or that there has been political interference to allow them into the country.”

“Meanwhile, I have continued to receive threats of violence from neo-Nazis for speaking up against the visit of these two racists.”

“After we issued a media statement two days ago, further threats have come through our website from neo-Nazi group the National Front. These are the people who want to normalise hate speech and become empowered to commit acts of violence against anyone who disagrees with their views. We are particularly concerned about a heightened threat to minority communities who already suffer attacks by racist groups and individuals.”

This is a sample of the kinds of material we have been getting:

“Just because you don’t have a swastika tattooed on your throat doesn’t mean you aren’t a fascist. These people are coming to incite violence and hatred, and we are already seeing the effects of that before they even arrive.”
