Excellent leadership from the NZ PM


#5516

That is incredible leadership.


#5517

+1, very inspiring.


#5518

Proud dub has summed up my feelings perfectly


#5519

Do you feel the same about various GAA clubs and that they should rename their clubs.


#5520

It’s hardly the same standard though is it? Far far far from it imo. Men sent to spread Christian ideology (and gather land, wealth, let’s face it) through massacre rape pillage etc, versus men/woman fighting for freedom from oppression in their own land.


#5521

I doubt the Canterbury crusaders are named after these guys who spreaded christianity, and it was more marketing name.


#5522

They’re not. But the Christian Crusaders are being referenced as an inspiration for the wankbag that carried out the atrocity in Christchurch. The symbol on their jersey is that of a medieval knight name checked by this dipshit. I’m not part of the PC brigade but I can see quite obviously why the conversation is being had.

And as I said there’s no comparison to freedom fighters, martyrs etc whose names adorn many a club and ground within our association.


#5523

When they start naming GAA clubs after military campaigns in the middle East, that have eff all to do with our own history or heritage… then yeah, sure why not? But I don’t think the Saladin Gaels have anything to worry about. :roll_eyes:


#5524

Which is exactly why a name change should not be a problem.


#5525

I think it’s an over reaction but each to their own. Purge everything and start again so.


#5526

Same thing Gemma O Doherty said.


#5527

If ever someone needed an egg to the head…


#5528

Self certification causing serious issues further down the line. Who’d of thunk it

#5531

He knocked on the door of an Asian couple (non-Muslim) shouting “Come out, you Paki cünts”.
He also apparently stabbed someone.


#5532

WT absolute F

Mindless spanners with kitchen implements are now terrorists?

I’m not belittling the event by the way, just the journalism sensationalist reporting.


#5533

Police are calling it a terrorist incident


#5534

I saw that. I’m questioning it. Not you BTW, the whole reporting of it.

I saw a fella in a part of our city attack a fella in his garden, calling him a “ethnic minority” ■■■■■■■ (insert appropriate race) and kick and punch and attempt to stab him. Is that a terrorist attack? Or just a violent prick with racial tendencies?

I know which one I think it is.
