It always seemed like a publicity stunt rather than a real tour, and it’s finally occurred, Southern & Molyneux have confirmed they aren’t touring NZ…
Right-wing speakers Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux cancel NZ trip
Right-wing speakers Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux, from Canada, who planned on visiting Auckland next week, have cancelled their trip.
…sadly however, the damage has been done.
By responding as hysterically as we have, more people know about these crypto-fascsists and they look at the visceral response by some on the activist Left to stamp out their attempt at speaking as feral and hateful. Woke Twitter has denounced anyone supporting free speech as a Nazi and social media has imploded with thousand fights and arguments which have all ended acrimoniously.
We got trolled by two right wing Trolls and the very foundations of our liberal progressive democracy shuddered.
All we managed to do was turn on each other in viciousness while providing them with a marketing win.
The economic shockwaves of the next global financial meltdown feeds the far right narrative, let’s hope we have our shit together enough to be in a position to respond with a lot more intelligence than we did this time around.
UPDATE: Fuck – they are coming!
