Kiwis on Twitter have come together to respond to a Republican senator from Arizona, US, who says she has received “a lot of emails” from New Zealanders complaining about Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and the ” Covid camps” in New Zealand.

Wendy Rogers, a conservative senator from Arizona, said the emails were from Kiwis “who are happy that I’m exposing their prime minister.” The politician went on to imply that New Zealand had ‘Covid camps’ and called Ardern a ‘crazy job’.

The tweet caught the attention of New Zealanders who responded with good old Kiwi humor.

“Wendy, we are not allowed to plant our own gardens and not enough people are spreading it because our internet access is so strictly timed and controlled by the government,” wrote one Kiwi Twitter user, adding that “we must use special black off-the-shelf routers just to access certain things”.

“I’m so glad you’re sharing this truth, I live in fear that our illegal garden plot will be discovered by the midnight helicopters sweeping our neighborhood,” another Twitter user replied. “The weeds that grow there can only hide it for so long. When will the UN decide?”

“Covid Camps are the only place we are allowed to garden, some people fake positive tests just to have time to tend to vegetables and grow flowers to take home to their families. This leads to the dissolution of the black flower market.
Such a hellhole,” someone else said.

A Twitter user touched on another topic close to the hearts of some Republican politicians in the United States: the Christmas war:

“It’s even worse than that. They’re forcing us to celebrate Christmas in the middle of summer. Please spread the word about this outrage,” the Twitter user wrote.

Many Kiwi Twitter users also responded to the Trump-supporting politician referencing her own country’s Covid death toll and other issues.

Other users said it was not possible for the Arizona politician to receive emails from many New Zealanders because computer use is not legal in the country.

Last week, Rogers called Ardern “Lenin with hair.”
