Key found the WMDs! They were in NZ and someone tried to hack for them and that’s why GCSB has to legally spy on us!

Let’s say it slowly.

We. Have. To. Spy. On. New. Zealanders. Because. Someone. Tried. To. Hack. For. Weapons. Of. Mass. Destruction. ? ? ?

Sweet baby Jesus, when Key had to cough up some bullshit justification as to why he’s going to let the GCSB spy on NZers for the SIS and the NZ Police, you would have thought he would have put some effort in right?

What do we get instead? Some absurd claim that someone tried to hack NZ for WMDs??? That’s the farcical excuse he’s come up with to spy on NZers? That someone is trying to build WMDs?

The terrorism threat in New Zealand is low but people have tried to use our technology to build weapons of mass destruction, Key said.

We have to spy on NZers for WMDs like we had to invade Iraq for WMDs. When you consider the vast new search and surveillance powers Key has already handed over to the Police, what possible excuse could he manufacture to justify turning the Eye of Mordor upon us?

WM bloody Ds.

What can you possibly say about a country that accepts this? Key’s claim that WMDs are the reason we need to spy on NZers is about as credible as his justification that he had to stop the Epsom Tea Pot tapes getting out because it might lead to more youth suicides if parents were recorded talking about their depressed children.

I’m getting the feeling that Key could just fart into the microphone as an answer during these press conferences now and many NZers would nod in agreement.

Honestly, this has become so farcical I’m waiting for Key to start arguing the need to privatize 49% of the GCSB so corporations can access our world class spying organization.

  1. Christ on a cross, but is this for real???

    I’m not up to speed with NZ current issues since I’m living in Thailand so forgive me for the question. But honestly, did he really say this? If he did, then for fuck’s sake he’s approximately 10 years out of date.
    That horror-mongering tactic went out with the illegal invasion of Iraq. Does he really think the NZ masses are THAT stupid? Or are they truly that stupid?

    Please, NZ, come the next election…PLEASE restore my faith in this once great nation. Vote the tossers out!

  2. Of course we all know that Jno. Key is simply bent on spying out legitimate and democratically motivated opinion and activism in opposition to the idiot non-policy of this kleptocratic mal-Adminstration thatis driving Kiwiland into the dust.

    I’m not holding my breath that Labour will do anything to ameliorate this further premeditated and malicious attack upon my rights and freedoms. After all, it was the Fifth Labour Administration that fell over itself enacting laws to curb my freedoms and rights in the wake of a terrorist attack that took place on the far side of the planet. Yep: I take it personally. As we all should.

    As if that attack were somehow unique or especially heinous compared with other attacks, many – most – of which were sponsored by the United States of America, before and since the 9/11 event.

    It was Ben Franklin (among others since) who observed that ‘Who would sacrifice basic freedom for a little security deserves neither the freedom nor the security.’ Having discovered that Government Ministers and MPs can ignore you by e-mail, I shall be putting this question to The Rt Hon Jno. Key: ‘If we are to accept Ben Franklin’s dictum, what are we to make of those who, for the sake of a little security for themselves, would sacrifice the freedoms of others?’

    I have a feeling I’ll be repeating this comment elsewhere in these forums… It do seem to alert us to Thos Jefferson’s equally well-known (but often misunderstood) observation about the price of freedom. It we he, and not I although many people have heard me say it, who first recognised that the greatest threat to any nation’s security and well being is its own government.

  3. I can’t believe he pulled the WMD card… Key,s American mates must be astonished at how easy is doing this stuff..

  4. Shucks, he’s channeling Rob Muldoon with his pics of Soviet Submarines in the Tasman Sea.
    The tactic worked worked for Rob.

  5. WMD?

    This is a Weapon of Mass Distraction. This is a Weapon of Mass Distraction. This is a Weapon of Mass Distraction. THIS IS A WEAPON OF MASS DISTRACTION. THIS IS A WEAPON OF MASS DISTRACTION. THIS IS A WEAPON OF MASS DISTRACTION.
    It doesn’t matter how many times you say it or how loudly you say it This is a Weapon of Mass Distraction.

  6. “Honestly, this has become so farcical I’m waiting for Key to start arguing the need to privatize 49% of the GCSB so corporations can access our world class spying organization.”

    No need. He’s said they’ll work for commercial organisations. We get to keep paying for them.
    The only thing different from the DDR is that heaps of our people love what he’s doing and we don’t drive Trabants.

  7. From ‘mass destruction’ by the band Faithless, ‘MISINFORMATION IS A WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION’.

  8. Ok ..so he’s saying that the GCSB has to now spy on Nzer’s because ..somebody OFFSHORE was looking for info on NUCLEAR technology here … Right, so the GCSB would have presumably spoken to the SIS about this ? ..and so why then hasn’tt the SIS done what its supposed to be doing ..??

    The idea that NZ holds the key to WMD info for terrorists is so perverse its maybe possibly true .. but if so don’t we already have the means to deal with it ??

    The irritating thing is none of the background to this is able to be accessed by the public or media via the OIA … and I for one don’t believe a f**king WORD this guy says anymore.

    However, there were people in New Zealand who funded, or were involved in, terrorist attacks.

    “There are people within our country who have links to offshore terrorist groups,” the prime minister said.

    That included cyber attacks and covert attempts to use science and technology for projects involving weapons of mass destruction, Key said.

    Question to Mr Key:

    Are these people New Zealanders? If not, the GCSB can already spy on them.

  10. i sat in disbelief when i heard him let fly with the WMD claim on 3 news would,nt hold my breath that that the sleepy hobbits will wake up to this claim when are the public going to get it that this guy is out of his depth the only thing saving him is David Shearer i don,t care what some of the Labour caucas think of Cunliffe he is capable of rolling Key who is only hanging around for a knighthood he,s getting more like Muldoon all the time wakey wakey hobbits

  11. …ahhahahahahahaha. Sorry for the childish cackle. New Zealand is now officially in war with its citizens. Please leave all valuables at the door. We are living 1984.

  12. Full the country up with right wing immigrants who are glad to be here cause their own country sux … don’t need to vote cause nz is doing all right and there you have it .. national will stay in power.

  13. Well as I am writing this there have been 14 comments, but NONE from the right-wing cheerleaders who comment here regularly. Where are you? How do you explain Jonkey’s latest rush of blood to the head?
    Plus its probably fair to say that the spooks have already checked out everybody who posts a comment on these forums…..

  14. “I can’t believe he pulled the WMD card… Key,s American mates must be astonished at how easy is doing this stuff..”

    Too many people oblivious to politics in NZ. As long as the Super Rugby’s on who cares! They will when the spooks knock at their doors to take away their hard-drives!

  15. Honestly, this has become so farcical I’m waiting for Key to start arguing the need to privatize 49% of the GCSB so corporations can access our world class spying organization.

    No need. The new rules will allow private organisations to use the GCSB.

    Wonder what the charge out rates are? Oh, silly me, it will all be done on the taxpayers bill won’t it?

  16. Key has loss the plot. Looks like Mr Fix It Steven Joyce will have to come in and fix Key’s lies after he did such a good job with Nova pay. This is becoming more entertaining by the day! I can honestly say I didn’t vote for them second time around with a huge sigh of relief.

    • But you voted for them before. obviously you are so thick that you didn’t recognise him for the lying two faced arsehloe he is.
      more fool you
