We Must Kill All Men?

May 15 2017

I was under the impression that Wicked Campers had been banned from Queenstown because of the filthy, shocking comments painted on the sides of their vans, but it seems I am mistaken and that they have slipped back into town again. I came across one of their vans this morning, down at Gorge Road and was appalled to see those huge letters on the side of the van, exhorting: “We must kill all men”. Are we so weak and morally bankrupt as a nation that we permit this type of thing in our beautiful environment? If I can read this then so can our children.
Vicious comments like these are picked up by the subconscious mind, often through our peripheral vision, according to studies in behavioural science, and registered in our belief systems. I ask the reader, from one soul to another, what is the point of this nastiness? Are we so far gone that this literary filth and degradation is now accepted as normal?
Can you imagine the beautiful state of Singapore, for instance, allowing these vans? Let’s take it to a personal level and ask yourself: Would you allow your children to live in your home if they had a t-shirt with, for instance, “we need to kill all men” plastered on it?
Surely, folks, there has to be a point when we wake up to what is around us and the inherent damage this is doing to our already crime-infested, troubled society, a society with the highest level of child suicide in the world, to cite just one appalling statistic of many. Do we really need more hideous propaganda thrown at us through a camper van rental company, or is it time to take a stand?

    Yes, I was particularly offended by the one that said "They call it PMT because the term "Mad Cow Disease " was already taken. Has anyone else got a particularly bad one to share??

    While no doubt Wick Vans are part of the same "we don't give a dam culture"we should be more concerned about the Freedom campers who park and poo anywhere without any consequences..

    Get a Life! I mean seriously? You're wittering on about vicious comments in the subconscious mind? hideous propaganda? You obviously haven't been on the internet for a while or read a newspaper. I bet your children are far more engrossed in playing candy crush on their mobile devices than reading the back of a campervan for shits and giggles - Grow up.
