Via Morgan on Twitter, this alleged National Party election ad ‘from the 70s’ is doing the rounds:
The question is: is this a real ad, or a satire? Seems too extreme to be real – although dawn-raids era National was an overtly racist party. But were they this overt? If this was real wouldn’t it have entered into notoriety, along with the dancing cossacks ad? Wouldn’t we have heard about it before?
On the other hand, the nation was a lot more regional back then. It’s not impossible that this was an ad in a regional publication put out by a rural MP that nobody ever noticed until now.
If anyone knows the source of this ad, let me know in the comments and I’ll update the post.
