Ahh, the Young Nats

by Consul Firmin

I came across this dubious gem the other day on a certain right-wing blog site. The post itself referred to the incredibly pompous statement made by a particular Young Nat (currently the National President, according to Scoop).

What interested me was this comment, however:

“Someone also needs to tell these kids to be careful what they say if they have public Facebook profiles. Rape and homophobic jokes aren’t really vote winners”
That’s right folks, rape and homophobic jokes aren’t really vote winners, that’s why someone should tell these Young Nat members to be careful what they say on Facebook. Not “someone should tell these homophobic misogynists that their rape and/or homophobic jokes are incredibly fucking inappropriate,” but someone should tell them to, y’know, keep them to themselves, so as not to cost votes.
