NZ Institutions Must Disavow Their Support for Black Lives Matter

The violence of the Marxist group Black Lives Matter and their alliance with the fascist hate group ANTIFA, is undeniable.

We have watched American cities be set aflame: businesses, churches, cars and municipal buildings. We have watched untold people be punched, beaten and killed by them. We have watched hysterical banshees scream “hate-speech!” at ordinary decent folks who keep reiterating the universal truth that all lives matter.

The official Black Lives Matter website made their racist intentions clear, as if their violent actions were not clear enough to those who pay attention.

But what’s truly repulsive is that here in New Zealand the BLM propaganda now mindlessly infects all of our educational institutions, along with our corporates.

I’ve driven past schools, such as Auckland’s Marcellin College which describes itself as “A High Achieving Catholic Family Environment.” Prominently in their playground visible from the road, they brandished a “Black Lives Matter” billboard.

I fired off an email message challenging them to take note of the fact that the BLM website states this:

We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

Since when are Catholic schools in agreement with violent, racist movements that seek to disrupt the nuclear family? Why are they linking arms with such a vicious political group?

Perhaps they’ve been encouraged by the ghastly spectacle of an academic and influencer of NZ children such as Dr. Siouxie Wiles, who shamelessly used the platform of her Twitter account to encourage New Zealanders to send money online to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, in order to donate funds for the legal costs and bail of BLM-ANTIFA protesters who were arrested for unrestrained criminal behaviour.

Dr. Wiles sent out that appalling tweet on June 1st ostensibly to show solidarity with the George Floyd protests in America, which had by then already exploded into shocking violence.

The next day on June 2nd, in St.Louis, some protesters murdered retired black cop David Dorn who went to try to protect his friend’s pawn shop from being smashed up and looted. You can watch Ann Dorn, David’s widow, describe exactly what happened in her heartbreaking address to the Republican National Convention.

By June 5th, 17 Americans had lost their lives in these protests. Many of them were black Americans, but their lives didn’t matter. Countless people were by then injured and untold businesses smashed.

Yet despite all that harm, the NZ Herald ran a story on June 10th to say that St. Andrew’s College in Christchurch were investigating an incident where a teacher rightly removed Black Lives Matter posters from the walls of the school. The students claimed that the teacher “went berserk” at them and said, “you don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Well done that teacher!

Auckland’s Marist College had students complain over their BLM posters being removed by staff and Christchurch Girl’s College also had students upset that their posters were removed by a teacher who said “all lives matter.” Senior management intervened and commanded staff to leave the posters up.

No NZ school should suffer this ugly movement’s lying propaganda to be anywhere near their classrooms and playgrounds.

This past weekend saw the death of “Prayer Patriot” and Trump supporter Aaron Danielson in Portland, Oregon. Video has surfaced of BLM-ANTIFA protesters yelling out, “We’ve got another one right here! A Trumper!” Then two shots ring out.

Close by to the shooting, and after hearing of Danielson’s death, a female BLM-ANTIFA activist shouts into a megaphone:

“And tonight, I just got word that the person who died was a Patriot Prayer Trump person. He was a fucking Nazi! Our community held its own and took out the trash. I am not going to shed any tears over a Nazi.”

These killer activists have been basking in the solidarity of NZ educational institutions – and it’s utterly unbelievable and unconscionable.

Disgustingly, even the NZ School of Music at Victoria University in Wellington made a firm public statement to show their lemming-like support for BLM. Their June 2020 newsletter went out with these words:

Black Lives Matter

The New Zealand School of Music—Te Koki affirms its support for the goals of the Black Lives Matter movement, and its commitment to addressing systemic racism, injustice, and violence. We’ve been having discussions as a School as to how we can best open our ears to the conversations taking place at the moment, and are thinking about ways we can take action against any institutional racism within our walls. As these discussions continue, our programmes have come up with some immediate actions they are taking to bring about change. We welcome other suggestions from current and former students, faculty, and staff as to how we create more equitable, more inclusive, and more culturally-relevant learning environments for our students.

The Music Studies programme commits to reviewing our curriculum and research practices to de-center whiteness and prioritize anti-racist approaches in music education and music studies more broadly. This will include examining the content, approaches, and perspectives taught in all of our courses, and more action is to come.

How can a Music School even pretend to teach music if their goal is to de-center whiteness? On the basis of skin colour alone, that’s Beethoven gone, Brahms, Bach, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Liszt, Wagner, Puccini, Mozart and the rest – all wiped. And for what? Solidarity with the most racist and violent hate group in America.

That should enrage any true lover of music. Lindsay Perigo called this Ethnic Cleansing in Academia Aotearoa, and he’s 100 percent correct. That’s exactly what it is.

This shameless and dangerous groupthink indoctrinating NZ education needs to immediately cease, and in light of the homicidal brutality going on in the name of BLM-ANTIFA, the institutions who have supported them need to publicly apologise and state why. Dr. Siouxie Wiles needs to publicly apologise and state why.

BLM and ANTIFA are terrorising America as we speak and New Zealanders need to wise up instead of acting like useful idiots who pretend the movement is about “fairness and equality.” Nothing could be further from the truth. It’s about hate and chaos – and they’re openly advocating black superiority to achieve that hate and chaos.

I agree on this. Calling them useful idiots is a bit kind on my part, it’s just that so many of the “normal” folks who lap this stuff up are just that, but there is also a larger militant ideological plan in play here, including from our current government - and that thing in Melbourne who is now known as Chairman Dan. Complete woke fascist.

I’m reminded of a Telegram post that Milo Yiannopoulos sent out a few days ago where one of his fans had correctly highlighted a page in one of his books that was the moment Milo turned from his 2016 version of himself into his lethal 2020 version.

“Yes, but doubling down on a secularised, technocratic 'quest for truth' and leaning on classical liberal ideals aren’t going to be enough to reverse the damage done to the West by cultural Marxism and the progressive Left. Jonathan Haidt, co-author of the The Coddling of the American Mind and leader of the Heterodox Academy, is regarded as a leader in the pushback against political correctness on campuses. But, as Aaron Sibarium notes in his review of that book for The American Interest, Haidt isn’t a threat to the Left, because he fundamentally misunderstands its nature and has failed to grasp the psychological implications of safe spaces and trigger warnings, which are a manifestation of “spiritual dissatisfaction,” not “imperial ambition.” In other words, student insanity isn’t a product of psychiatric dysfunction or fragility, but rather the product of ideology that has been brewing on campuses for decades. You can’t fix the problem without purging the poisonous ideas that created it: identifying God-hating cultural Marxism as such and beating it to a bloody pulp. Because it lacks a commitment to universal truths, value-neutral classical liberalism just “perpetuates the moral vacuum in which PC culture arose.”

What if they are in fact not dumb?

Instead of all the institutions making a big mistake, or indulging in misguided virtue signaling, or being confused or otherwise cognitively deficient, what if they were previously infiltrated, along with your government, and are simply on the same larger team as BLM and ANTIFA?

I agree with your last para very strongly, Olivia. Thanks for the article.

Is it not a moral question to stalk and murder?

Graham Hill's picture

The death of Mr Danielson has been met with the astonishing and dehumanising comment from a professor at Rhode Island.

"So it is merely a tactical, not a moral question to stalk and murder someone with opposing views?"

Professor Turley, Law faculty, George Washington University, has an excellent comment on this unprofessional and deluded Rhode Island Professor.

Critical Theory gets us to this point in human devolution. It was, therefore, significant that earlier this week the White House issued a memorandum banning Critical Race Theory (CRT) training in Federal Governmental Departments including the DOJ, FBI and Defence. CRT underpins BLM and ANTIFA.

This then brings us to the "clueless" School of Music academics at VUW who in my opinion have not exercised a scintilla of intellectual scrutiny or ability to discriminate scholarship from the dogmatic deterministic paradigm of CRT. The Free Speech coalition, or what is left of it, while submitting a paper on Vaping to a Select Committee, has not confronted a more compelling and serious issue case of freedom of expression. The excising of aspects of our cultural heritage is unwarranted censorship. Mr Perigo's concerns are well made.

Stuff, powerful arguments, Olivia.

It's all part of the decline of NZ over the last 40 years - anything degenerate and perverse is adopted; anything good is abolished.

Unfortunately we're now into the third generation of this sort of degeneracy hence there being no future for NZ; too far gone. To use an analogy, the country could have been saved when it was just a bit of gangrene in one toe, but not now, not with the entire body being rotten.

Doesn't surprise me with the Catholic school; problem is they're Irish. So that means ten generations of "genetic defects" and an IQ of about 6; people that far gone cannot be reasoned with - (you may as well try debating with a tree!).
