How you doing mate? Look I appreciate you are ducking and dodging questions on how you knew about manipulated crime statistics but didn’t do anything about them, but I wondered if you were free from photo bombing Brad Pitt for victims of rape in war if you could turn to the domestic battle front of that war for a second?
Has your favourite attack pet breached your proposed cyber bullying law yet? Whaleoil’s latest hate speech nomination is insinuating that Tania Billingsley is some sort of Green Party honeytrap who lures men to her home so she can scream rapist and make public statements about rape culture.
How the hell is that not the most detestable online bullying imaginable?
The question is simple Minister, how does a blog as odious and abusive and offensive as this one not breach your new cyber bullying laws Judith?
How can something as awful as what he is insinuating in this…
Now, dear readers, what are the odds of a Malasian diplomat deciding to follow Tania home from a bus stop, apparently at random? What are the odds of him picking a woman that is befriended with and herself involved in women’s issues going back many years? What are the odds of him randomly standing there not touching her, then, backing off and waiting for police to arrive out in the street? What are the odds of Green MP Jan Logie getting involved, erm, randomly? What are the odds of a situation that has NONE of the hallmarks of an attempted rape, being shopped by TV3 as attempted rape and the label “Rape culture” being used to intimidate and shut up critics like ourselves lest we look insensitive to (real!) rape victims?
…not a clear violation of the Harmful Digital Communications Bill main offence of posting a harmful digital communication with the intent to cause harm? Dredging up old Facebook messages and wall postings to cook up farcical conspiracies as offensive as these ones is the intent to cause harm to Tania’s reputation.
Why is your favourite attack pet so immune from the very cyber bullying laws you champion?
PS – Would you advise Tania takes a complaint to one of your new civil enforcement regimes once they are established?
