They actually had a cardboard cut out of Trump??? :lol:
Yup. In their house. Let’s just say they’re a bit eccentric. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy eccentric. But I enjoy nice eccentric. Not the other kind of eccentric. If you kwim. :)

I would have loved a cardboard cut out of our last 2 PMs (not the current one )
Gary would say no any way

Any evidences of Trump being like Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Kim or Castro? How many people has Trump executed?
I said wanna be. He's prevented from actually being a dictator, at least for now. But he would have liked to have had the Central Park 5 (who were later vindicated) executed, for one example. Luckily he was not in power at the time.

Here we have good Asian support for the National party, its the left who are racists (especially towards Asians) and anti immigration
Yup, They'll play the race card every 4 yrs. Facts, The last US Prez. to sign an amnesty bill was Reagan in 1986.

So many people has he shot in the past 3.5 yrs?
Ok so you want some concrete examples of his corruption and authoritarian tendencies:

  • Trump refused to respond to a request from Congress to provide a report determining who killed the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Instead Trump heaped praise on the Saudi crown prince.

  • Trump gave Turkey a green light to invade Syria and attack US Kurdish allies.

  • Trump invited the Taliban for a BBQ at Camp David.

  • Trump has also refused to question Putin on intelligence reporting that Russia put bounties on US troops.

Not on the car
id be worried some radical leftie would kick it mind you we used to have one of those 'gun family' transfers on the window and we only got friendly waves over that
Honestly your fears are valid! If I saw a British National Party bumper sticker on a car I wouldn’t feel bad about hitting it with my door (might even do it on purpose!). It’s not a radical left approach to deplore blatant racism and Neo-Nazi ideals.

To those who are not British, BNP is a radical fringe party with zero elected officials. Early party history (1980’s and 1990’s) included venerating Hitler and held the position that only white people should be citizens of the UK. They actually had a rule banning people of colour from the party until 2010 when it was deemed a human rights violation.

Sorry @Daisys and Diamonds I missed that you’re in New Zealand!!!

I still maintain I would judge someone with a BNP sign in the UK, but it sounds like the National party in New Zealand is more mainstream.
thanks Chemgirl
i don't know why they are called the national party
as one of our two major parties you just grow up accepting that national is national
i do understand how in some places in the world a national party might sound a bit scary, but its just what we call middle of the road conservatives
while from an economic perspective they are right wing i promise you the national party is not racist*, is pro- immigration and also listens to scientific advisers
while i don't like the present government here in NZ we tend to have long periods of stable govt no matter who is in power
i just could not fathom any wide spreas civil unrest here like they seem to get in America or the UK - and the way Australia chop and change PMs like some people change their underwear :mrgreen2:

*one of our last leaders was a lovelly young Maori man whom the labour party made fun for his accents - Jisinta has a hard time wrangling that lot
our present leader is married to a Chinese gentleman, nobody cares what colour you so long as they can do the job
