Nazi hysteria from TVNZ

This is just beyond appalling, and a great example of why media trust keeps falling.

Christopher Luxon was asked a question about immigration settings, and he commented that since 2016 we are no longer replacing ourselves (this means fertility rate has fallen below the 2.1 replacement rate) and joked to the audience that they should have more babies.

It was not a policy, not a direction, not a speech. It was a quip in response to a question on immigration.

And a TVNZ reporter implicitly compares it to Lebensborn while questioning Nicola Willis. Lebensborn was a Nazi eugenics programme aimed at increasing the number of racially pure Aryan babies. It also involved mass kidnapping of children. This is what a reporter for the state broadcaster think is a legitimate comparison.
