I have learned with the New Zealand media, that whenever a story gets sprayed out in a one-sided fashion from almost every single media orifice known to man, it is monumentally out of sync with the facts and an attempt at propaganda; eg -“Donald Trump is just a buffoon and could never win the Presidency,” or, “It would be a total economic disaster for the UK if they vote to exit the EU,” and the more recent, “New Zealand is suffering from an embedded rape culture.”

The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra had a lot of competition in Wellington last Saturday—the CubaDupa 2017 weekend was on, meaning most of Cuba St was cordoned off to vehicular traffic so that sundry performers, musical and otherwise, could strut their stuff. The pedestrian traffic was overwhelming.

A few years ago, when my 90 year old grandmother was still alive, I told her to make sure she kept her ground floor windows shut to discourage any intruders so that she wouldn’t get raped. “Pfft!” she sniffed, then smiled. “Chance would be a fine thing!”

The beautiful Somali born ex Muslim, ex right-wing-Dutch-politician-come-American, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, is coming to speak to Australians and New Zealanders.

Being a much ruder culture than we Kiwis, Ozzies have already started to protest Hirsi Ali’s arrival using Australian Muslim women academics, business owners (and of course Diversity Peddlers) as spokeswomen.

Yaron Brook and Amy Peikoff Discuss Immigration Without Linz

edpowell's picture
Submitted by edpowell on Thu, 2017-03-23 22:15

This is a complete transcript of the discussion between Amy and Yaron about immigration that occurred on Feb 10, 2017 in lieu of the promised debate between Linz and Brook. Brook himself is such a weasel and shifts his position on this issue over and over again depending on the circumstances and audience that I thought it was valuable for a complete record of his remarks be made and made public so that appropriate analysis and criticism can be made of them without actually having to repeatedly listen over and over to the audio recording, which is mind-numbingly painful to listen to.

[This is an expanded version of the opening statement I had prepared for my aborted debate with Yaron Brook on Amy Peikoff's BlogTalkRadio show, "Don't Let It Go." I withdrew from the debate when I realised I could not in all conscience comply with her last-minute request that I refrain from making "sweeping statements" critical of Yaron. Warning: the following contains a number of sweeping statements critical of Yaron.]

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.

"Magnificent Pandemonium"—Linz vs Muslims and Their Enablers

This is the speech I delivered almost in its entirety in my capacity as special commentator, along with Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy, at Monday night's semi-final in the intra-university Next Generation Debates series at Auckland University. I say "almost in its entirety" because a gaggle of Muslims became very vocal near the end of my speech and demanded, successfully, I be stopped at once for having gone over my allocated time. The point at which I was shut down is noted in the text below.

"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.
