This Dildo Is A Rubbery, Pink Symbol Of Political Inefficacy

Here is a video of New Zealand’s Economic Development Minister Stephen Joyce getting a dildo thrown at his face.

The New Zealand Herald identified the thrower of said dildo as a nurse from Christchurch named Josie Butler. (Also, the video called the item being thrown a “sex toy,” but humans with eyes have identified it as definitely a dildo.)

“That’s for raping our sovereignty,” Butler can be heard yelling, before she is escorted off by security.

The footage was filmed as Joyce spoke to reporters after he and other ministers signed the Trans-Pacific partnership — a multinational trade deal which, according to BBC, “aims to deepen economic ties between these nations, slashing tariffs and fostering trade to boost growth.”

Yesterday, Butler told reporters of her dissatisfaction with the pact. “I’m here as a nurse,” she said a protest. “I’m worried about the patient rights and how many people will essentially die if this goes through because the price of medication’s going up, so yeah, it’s something I feel really strongly about.”

Joyce didn’t seem especially phased by having a dildo thrown at his face, but maybe he’s used to this kind of thing.
