Republicans tweet they want to move to New Zealand

Nov 7th, 2012 | By | Category: Latest News, News

IF TWITTER is anything to go by, New Zealand is soon to receive an influx of Republicans.

A meme has gone viral on Twitter with users saying they will move to New Zealand because Barack Obama was declared the election winner.

Tweets before the election suggested Democrats would consider a move down under if Mitt Romney was elected.

Tweets include:

5.52PM: Hannah Roney‏@HannahRoney_So should I move to new Zealand, Australia or canada? #Nobama

5.49pm: Carson Woodell‏@Carson_Woodell: @ThexBeardedxOne buuch wanna move to New Zealand? I heard there’s no liberals there and we can snowboard!

5.18PM: Laura Vincent‏@HungryandFrozen @tout_moi Same with Republicans wanting to move to New Zealand. They have clearly not looked up what kind of laws we have here.

3.02PM:  William Hearn™‏@Whearn33As much as I love the stars and bars, if Obama wins, the option to pack up and move to New Zealand and herd sheep would be considered…

There has been a backlash to the meme on twitter as well, with users comparing New Zealand’s healthcare and gun control policies to those of America.

5.54PM:anderson ☆☽‏@andersonstrode Everyone saying they’re going to move to Canada and New Zealand need to stfu and educate themselves. #havefun #socialisthealthcare

5.18PM: Laura Vincent‏@HungryandFrozen @tout_moi Same with Republicans wanting to move to New Zealand. They have clearly not looked up what kind of laws we have here.

11.23AM: Liam Pomfret‏@LiamPomfret I love reading about Republicans planning to move to New Zealand if Obama wins, with its tight gun control and strong public healthcare.

  1. Looks like your website has broken all the @ signs on those Twitter handles and made them into mail links… oops…
