So it turns out Southern & Molyneux were less popular than Spinoff TV, who woulda thunk it?
I’m so thankful this bullshit has been called off because I just didn’t believe the Woke Left could have been trusted not to start violence if they had confronted the shut in weirdos who would have bought tickets to this kind of carnival of pale ignorance.
When activists screamed this hate speech would incite violence, they meant incite violence from them.
All week the Woke Left have been whipping themselves into a self-flagellated ‘punch a Nazi in the face’ level of self righteousness that if exploded would have simply given these right wing circus freaks the martyrdom they so desperately wanted.
This entire thing was a fiasco that ended up in people calling anyone supporting free speech a Nazi while others seriously claimed free speech was actually white privilege.
We were trolled by two crypto-fascsists and inadvertently did their marketing for them.
Is it possible that Southern & Molyneux really came to NZ on the off chance the Powerstation would just let them have a venue? I mean there’s wishful thinking & then there’s criminal negligence – if their rhetoric is half as stupid as their travel plans we had nothing to fear.
I agreed with Goff stopping them having access to a public venue, but they still had the right to a private venue, as we all did to protest them at that private venue.
30 seconds after the venue was made public, the backlash and social media pile on to destroy The PowerStation was as rational as throwing molotov cocktails at the Pop-Up Globe for daring to suggest a male perspective on MeToo.
The PowerStation are a small family operation who even the magnificent Ladi 6 (who is playing there next week) tried to stand up for..
…hilariously The PowerStation owner ended up asking the Spin Off journalist who called them to find out what the bloody hell they were playing at what they should do.
If you are asking the SpinOff who are about to destroy you what you should be doing, you are well out of your depth.
Once the Powerstation’s reputation was as smouldering as Pop-Up Globes, the Woke Left turned on the media for interviewing Southern & Molyneux with the intention of broadcasting it over the weekend.
I’m waiting for someone to start an Action Station petition to fire bomb TVNZs transmission dish, incidentally someone did in fact make a bomb threat to the PowerStation. What little charmers.
Gower did a great interview with these two clowns and highlighted the absolute shallow vapidness of their positions. He did more to convince other NZers not to fall for this crap than a thousand Nazi punches in the face.
The Woke Left scream that any platforming of these proto-Nazi’s was akin to being a member of the Hitler Youth yourself which of course drives this venom underground and only makes it more toxic.
We engage with snakes like this, not to convince the snake they are wrong, but to stop our fellow countrymen and women from siding with the snakes, it’s a juggling act we are going to have to get our heads around because this isn’t going away.
The next global financial crisis will create economic shockwaves the far right feed on and convincing your fellow countrymen and women not to listen when they are angry and vulnerable will take far more nuance than ‘you’re a fucking Nazi bro’ level of debate.
