The Fascists of the Left (FOTLs, pronounced “Fottles” and spelled that way henceforth) have won. Free speech in New Zealand is dead. It has been throttled by Fottles.

Cassie Jaye’s transformation from self-identifying as a feminist to a girl who no longer likes to call herself one is as honest a metamorphosis as I’ve ever seen. And here was I thinking millennials have an aversion to thought.

Make Western Civilisation Great Again!

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Thu, 2016-12-29 04:25

Undeniably, the biggest events of 2016, seismic in their enormity, were Brexit and the election of Donald Trump. Because of those two events, for the first time in eight years we could say that Western Civilisation had rallied to mount a rearguard action against The Anti-West, aka Islamo-Marxism, aka The Filth. The latter were in pouting, infantile retreat, alternately sullen and hysterical, unable to comprehend that the seeming hegemony of their loathsome, totalitarian world view was not invincible after all.

Summer Pops: Music from the Movies
New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Hamish McKeich
Michael Fowler Centre, February 9

The NZSO seemed a few players short of an orchestra last Friday night. Maybe some of the musicians were still on summer break; maybe it was felt that the relatively light fare didn't require a full muster. The enthusiastic, if not full, house didn't seem to mind in the least.

America never was 'a nation of immigrants.'

We are nations of citizens - and citizens flourish under laws which are designed to preserve our natural rights as a free people.

NZ on Screen: New Linz Profile (with very old pic: hair warning!)

... In the 1989 Post profile Perigo expressed concerns about the depth of debate he was able to elicit on television: "we’ve become a sort of society where people don't analyse an argument: they attach brandnames to people who proffer arguments and think that they’ve dealt with the argument that way". In 1993 he infamously abandoned the medium, claiming that TVNZ news and current affairs was "braindead", and that stories of celebrities and trapped cats had superseded politics.

"The emotion involved in art is not an emotion in the ordinary meaning of the term. It is experienced more as a 'sense' or a 'feel,' but it has two characteristics pertaining to emotions: it is automatically immediate and it has an intense, profoundly personal (yet undefined) value-meaning to the individual experiencing it.
