Homo "hit list" seeks applicants

Fri 24 Jun 2005 In: New Zealand Daily News

The National Front is assisting in the authoring of a homosexual and multicultural "hit list", which aims to create a database with photos, contact numbers and names of associates. Kyle Chapman, spokesman for the National Front, said the purpose of the list was "to counter what the communists do to us". The online database is the brainchild of Perch-based white supremacist group Redwatch Downunder. NZAF board member Jeremy Lambert has already volunteered for inclusion. “I am openly gay, of mixed Maori European heritage and have campaigned extensively for Human Rights. I must qualify near top of their list,” he says. "My contact number is in the phone book and I have some fantastic photos available." Lambert says there is a false perception that gays and lesbians are running the country at the moment. "The reality couldn't be further from the truth," he says. "With every step forward we prepare for the ‘anti-PC' backlash. Recent human rights advancements in partnership recognition have been followed by a string of hostile attacks from both mainstream and fringe politicians." Local anti-racism group Fight Dem Back is disturbed by news of the hit list. "It's a very scary thought," says co-ordinator Robert Trigan. "The general feeling in the community is of serious concern for safety and wellbeing. [They're] basically saying, ‘We are gathering this information, do what you want with it'. It is clearly meant to incite violence."
