We are not amused: New Zealanders act poorly in solidarity with American pipeline sit-in
We get it that environmental groups around the world are acting in solidarity with the massive oil sands pipeline sit-in, going on as we write this, in Washington, DC. BUT, we don't agree with the actions of the protesters in New Zealand trashing the maple leaf. Scream, yell, do whatever, but desecrating an emblem from the flag of an entire nation of people? Not cool. It's on-par with radical third world elements burning the stars and stripes and smacks of extremism that turns people off from the cause. While the policies of our government are to blame, we the people are not and our flag doesn't deserve that. Come on New Zealand, you know better.
