Tradie is fired for calling Islam ‘violent and destructive’ in the wake of the Christchurch mosque massacre

A tradie was fired four days into a new job for calling Muslims ‘violent and destructive’ the day after the Christchurch terror attack.

Thomas Knight-Wagener lost his job at Placemakers Albany, north-west of Auckland, after making the comments.

Knight-Wagener, originally from Kaitaia, told the NZ Herald he was ‘having an intellectual conversation’ with his new colleagues about Islam.

The truth is now a crime.
