People are loving a 17-year-old who snuck up on an Australian politician and slammed an egg on him because of comments he made about the attack on mosques in New Zealand.
This is why physical assault is NEVER the answer. Here is #eggboy, who eggs Senator Anning from Queensland (who blamed immigration for the Mosque attacks) and what does this grown man do after he sees it's a child and he's in no danger-HE HITS HIM.— Amee Vanderpool (@girlsreallyrule) March 16, 2019
This is going way too far. pic.twitter.com/LVFRjjb6By
So now #EggBoy is trending because assaulting a politician is a reasonable response to the left.
This account is claiming responsibility – they tweet a lot of Muslim stuff:
Here’s what he said that got everyone riled up:
“As always, leftwing politicians and the media will rush to claim that the causes of today’s shootings lie with gun laws or those who hold nationalist views, but this is all cliched nonsense.
“The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place.”
It does seem irresponsible to say that, as if it’s a reasonable response to terrorism to commit acts of terror. This kind of rhetoric doesn’t help anyone. But then, neither does egging.
