Great. Our Mother Country, the United Kingdom once was lucky enough to have Margaret Thatcher as their celebrated Iron Lady to alleviate the sick excesses of socialism in Britain during the 80s decade. Thirty odd years later, New Zealand gets lumped with Jacinda Ardern as our celebrated Wet Noodle advancing the even sicker cause of a march toward communism “with Chinese characteristics” in NZ.

​Our most sacred and inalienable human right has been lined up in the cross-hairs waiting to be shot to hell by Ardern’s woke fascist government - the right to speak freely as prescribed in NZ’s Bill of Rights:

Everyone has the right to freedom of expression, including the freedom to seek, receive, and impart information and opinions of any kind in any form.

This cornerstone freedom of our civilisation allows us to debate robust ideas of any kind in any manner: religion, sex, standards of decency, human conduct, economics, immigration, social welfare, technology, science, medicine and foreign affairs.

Our government plans to bastardise that central liberty in effect to something despicably close to:

Everyone has the right to freedom of expression, except if that expression may be perceived by anyone as an incitement of disharmony, based on an intent to stir up, maintain or normalise hatred, through threatening, abusive or insulting communications.

This regressive decline of a nation from live-and-let-live liberty to emotionally subjective and heavily policed constraints is what happens when dumbed-down, Marxism-infected activists preoccupied with impression-management skills become prime ministers in order to enact vicious agendas upon citizens who are too busy to bother much with political matters - it’s much easier in the face of bad governance to just go along to get along, and that bobbing head with the gummy grin on TV looks “nice enough.”

Vast years of luxurious peace and prosperity have resulted in unparalleled political apathy without the required intellectual vigilance to maintain such a gold standard of a status quo. Citizens have shamefully forgotten that this peace and luxury was bought at the very highest price of all: with the blood, sweat and tears of our forefathers.

Democracies cannot function without freedom of speech and that is exactly why all totalitarian regimes throughout human history, from Xerxes to Xi Jinping, outlaw this civilising principle first before outlawing everything else that they don’t like. Opposition is never allowed to stand unmolested (not that NZ has much in that regard anyway) because real opposition spreads, so long as people are free to think, speak, mock, satirise and criticise.

Nothing is more dangerous to NZ than this destructive intention from our government and they, the autocrats who now rule us, know damn-well what they are doing and it is precisely done to silence even a hint of opposition to their twisted, anti-freedom ideology which has been looming ever since the Christchurch mosque shootings of 2019.

It was this tragic event which conveniently (for her) saw Ardern suddenly bring up hate speech laws - as if any new laws would’ve stopped a killer such as Brenton Tarrant from slaying anyone. They would not have. Unhinged murderers will continue to do terrible things whether they are free to talk about them or not, and Tarrant did not. Sure, he wrote a manifesto, but that was only released to the public immediately before he went on his rampage. He was the typically quiet, super polite, loner weirdo next door who didn’t say much even when the police interviewed him for his gun license - even they suspected nothing.

But although the Christchurch massacre has been the great excuse to see their way clear to restricting free speech, speech which may hurt the sensitive feelings of anyone now living in this country, this is just a mighty and opportunistic ruse - and many people here know that.

Limiting free speech has become an obsession with the ignoble courtiers of Wokedom right throughout the Western world. Even the most rudimentary glance at media will show you just how successful they’ve been at wasting police time in the United Kingdom. Don’t make any comment about homos or lesbians, don’t criticise anybody who changes their sex, don’t dare to criticise disabled people even accidentally, don’t say anything which could be ever so slightly construed as a criticism of black people or brown people - and now after Covid, don’t criticise Asians. Above all, never ever criticise women, no matter how flakey, shallow, manipulative or vapid they might actually be - just look the other way and say nothing especially if you happen to be a man. In the Book of Woke, to transgress against that last one is akin to a mortal sin. Women rule, men drool. Got it? Of course male jerks exist in abundance too, but I cannot imagine that too many of those will run crying to the nearest police officer to get a hate speech charge slapped on an irritated woman who just ruthlessly sized him up verbally. Women however…

When Jacinda Ardern was first elected as PM, a woman who before being groomed for office had accomplished precisely zero as a liberated human being, I asked a few ladies in the circle of my acquaintance why the heck they voted for her? You know what the answer was (and said with a straight face too)? “I think it’s great to see women in positions of power and want to see more of it,” or sentiments similar. In other words, they voted for her because she possessed a vagina. These are women who emotionally rail sharply against all other forms of sexism, even those depicted in satire. They were too lost in their culturally sanctioned disdain of the mythical patriarchy to notice the irony.

Well, now they can behold the reality of what that woman in power is really like as she stands ready to pounce on the free thoughts and expressions of the entire country, if they even bother to notice.

Ardern’s agenda is anti human flourishing, and as I’ve said somewhere before, she’s unworthy to be the leader of a free people. NZ remaining a strong nation of free people angers her, for it’s the greatest threat to her beloved United Nations Agenda 2030.

What is Agenda 2030? If you don’t know, you may just be proving my point about people lacking vigilance as they cannot be bothered keeping up with political matters happening all around them. Agenda 2030 is no joke. It’s one world communism (of course they like to call it socialism, the C-word is always avoided) being enacted by globalist entities as we speak - and the China-released SARS-CoV-2 virus was their greatest gift to removing cherished, Western human freedoms which are as much of an obstacle as President Trump was.

If you think the Great Reset is just a “giant conspiracy theory" like NZ's Deputy Prime Minister Grant Robertson recently, and duplicitously, said to Peter Williams on air, then you’re an ostrich who lacks political literacy. Just peruse the World Economic Forum’s website - the Davos crowd adore Ardern for a reason, and it isn’t her commitment to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, for she does not jibe with that language. Their adoration for Ardern lies in her relentless use of their favourite euphemism “sustainability,” or as Ardern always says in her signature smiley baby-talk, “susdainabuludy.” What’s that a euphemism for? Centralised controls over everything from food production and diets to economics and social interactions, including how we speak about ideas and each other. “Be koind!”

Jacinda Ardern is proving herself to be that which all decent men (and women) fear from the so-called fairer sex - a tyrant with a lust for power to silence all criticism of her incompetence, her weakness and her disgustingly anti-freedom lunges. All Marxists are the same when scratched or tested. She stands in complete contrast to the freedom loving, truly powerful Dame Margaret Thatcher whom I wish were still with us if only to directly give a two-bit, little Ms. Fascista in the colonies a piece of her formidable mind.

[The only pushback I can see right now against this evil intent from our government is coming from the ACT Party, though it remains characteristically lukewarm, but you can sign their petition here. https://freespeech.act.org.nz ]


Anyone

who thinks this will apply to decent white folk is....naïve, shall we say.

It would be an interesting campaign to organize, say, 1000 conservative, Christian, white people to launch "complaints" the day the law comes into effect, and an ongoing campaign to clog things up. Endless violations by left wingers! haha!

As it's only left wingers actually spewing "hate" anyone causing offense should be reported immediately.

On the other hand, the right in NZ are spineless, feeble; fat and happy so long as there's beer in the fridge and sport on television - won't be holding my breath for anyone to fight back against this nonsense.

Hate Speech

Graham Hill's picture

The dangerous aspect of the changes is if the Human Rights Commissioner, Paul Hunt, is able to inflict the model that has been enacted in Scotland. The UK legislation has fraught issues jurisprudentially. The objective test in that and the UK legislation has been supplanted by a subjective test; therefore, the 'unreasonable person', the unhinged and the unusually sensitive can prevail. The danger as I see it is if speech that a person does not agree with is treated as hate speech and the popular use of the term hate speech points that way.

The possible upside is that conservatives (who are not necessarily right-wingers MSM) can now deal with the horrid "male pale and stale" stereotyped abuse along with the racist opprobrium poured on "whiteness'. A wrongful allegation or attribution of 'fascist' and 'racist' would also seem to come within the purview.

The government ideologues might get what they didn't wish for in unforeseen consequences.

As I have written earlier one should also be mindful of those who advocate for free speech as there are differing underpinnings. In my experience, the neoliberal underpinning can be at odds with the Milton-Mill principles which argue that free speech, with the right of association, intellectual freedom, which feeds into the right of freedom of conscience of the individual and the inherent dignity of eh individual. A view that collectivists and material determinists may not embrace.

Oh

I have just been informed the ACT Party - contrary to my criticism below - is tackling this issue head on; having a "Free Speech Tour" of the country.

Wonder if it will be hard hitting "this gets repealed in the first week of the next government" or a "they want to curb free speech - oh well, that's the way it goes sometimes" campaign? As ACT is the party who brought you the Search and Seizure Act, Auckland Council, and Rodney Hide's round the World trip - I know which option my money is on! haha!

NZ apparently uses a NZ-based company called Catalyst for its voting management system, but being such a small nation, our votes are hand counted and manually entered into the software, which has to factor in our dumb MMP system.

Many folks here allege that our election was fraudulent and Ardern’s “landslide” was certainly odd especially in long standing farming provinces.
Some "fact checking" website put out this after those claims were made: https://factcheck.afp.com/soci...

Considering the fact that in that article they wrote: "Dominion Voting Systems is a Denver-based voting software company that has become the focus of false claims and conspiracy theories propagated by former US President Donald Trump and Republican ally Sidney Powell about the 2020 US Election....”

... it does not do anything to reassure us that election fraud didn’t happen here too, since it is obvious to all but the wilfully blind that Trump was brought down by U.S election fraud. A real conspiracy if ever there were one.

The reason I believe that Ardern probably did win an outright victory here is all the Covid bullshit and Jacinda being on TV every day ad nauseam. Kiwis are sooooooo proud of being practically a Covid free and maskless nation, most of the time throughout this pandemic, and they hail Jacinda as the reason for that success. It was the great issue of the year and the one that people voted on. Also, our media is very in her pocket, she financially bailed them out as an “essential service.” They responded with their usual ass-kissy fawning and softball questions on everything. She cannot handle any heat and they didn’t burn her. The only radio host who does give her any heat, Mike Hoskings, has publicly fallen out with her after she refused to go back on his show for her weekly update. She’s that pathetic.

I can assure you it is literally impossible to commit voting fraud in New Zealand. All paper ballots, each party has observers (called scrutineers) at polling places up and down the country on election day.

And the officials are ordinary people who just want to earn some easy money by working at a polling place on election day.

It isn't rigged like in the US; nobody has ever attempted voter fraud - ever. And even if they did there is (literally) no way you could get the staff at a polling place to go along with it, nor would the media keep quiet, nor would the police not act.

May surprise you to know that occasionally some idiot will try to vote twice and are promptly arrested by the police....on election day! (things are that quick here)

So what happened in Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin etc just could not succeed here. Even the NZ equivalent of "ballot harvesting" - where a member of, say, the National party will do an "absentee ballot" for somebody who is ill and unable to get to a polling place - is completely "secure"; they would never attempt any funny business..... because the consequences of getting caught are severe.

The charge is what is known as "corrupt electoral practice" and it's no joke; two people have been convicted of this - the last occasion in 1988 - and it genuinely destroyed their lives.

It would be nice to think Ardern fiddled things to win but she didn't - alas; sad to say the average person actually IS that stupid....

We have not been electing [them]

Hi Olivia,
After all the evidence against Dominion, after seeing what was done to Trump in my own country, and after seeing all the international connections to that voting fraud, as well as your country’s membership in fiveyes, I have to say I don’t believe for a minute that your fellow countrymen elected Ardern. [They] have been systematically cheating for a very long time. Maybe it’s only a small point, but I think we need to recognize we are not as surrounded by evil and stupidity as [they] succeed in making it seem. Our fellow countrymen are mostly decent, we have not been electing these monsters.

All

rather chilling, isn't it?

If the ACT party had any brains they'd launch an all out attack on this in order to replace National as the opposition. God they're pathetic.
