I just don’t even know what to say any more, it’s like a slow motion train wreck. Don Brash, that tired racist dinosaur has just been granted martyrdom by the Woke Left banning him from speaking at Massey University…
It’s a bloody University, the very space where free speech is not only fought for, but where it’s intellectually understood to be a crucial foundation to critiquing and understanding the truth!
Southern’s petty Islamaphobia bullshit can be shredded within seconds by pointing out the contextualised history of the West propping up mutated forms of Islam that are used as control mechanisms over people. If Southern doesn’t want so many refugees, maybe she should focus on the West not bombing the places they’re fleeing from. Her arguments are childish and can be torn apart immediately.
Molyneux’s ridiculous attempt to claim race and IQ are somehow connected and not a result of nurture can be debunked with the most simple of Google searches FFS!
And Brash, well the best take down of that old goat was Willie Jackson’s speech at Orewa that totally annihilates Brash’s garden variety bigotry.
We beat these crypto-fascsists by engaging them and wiping the bloody floor with them! We live in a progressive democracy, New Zealand Aotearoa! Woman fought to have the vote here. We were the first country to claim 40 hours as a working week. We went Nuclear Free! We are a legacy of people who build each other up as well as fight for what’s fair. How dare we be reduced to cowards who shut down rather than have the courage of our forebears convictions and engage.
Hate speech is despicable. The legal definition in NZ is speech that incites violence, hostility or contempt against a group, that’s an incredibly high legal threshold to get to because free speech is such an invaluable part of an open Democracy.
This isn’t about hate speech, this is about the Orwellian power of being able to decide what can & can’t be said.
This is about creating trigger free safe spaces with petting zoos for emotional support peacocks while the rest of us are forced to accept it or get accused of Nazism.
Am I committing a thought crime here by pointing out the madness of this? Am I now to be branded as a fucking Nazi for doing so?
The Woke Left’s desire to strangle off free speech to protect them from all heteronormative patriarchal colonial triggers is actually creating the very backlash that helps recruit Nazis!
Rather than engaging, the Woke Left’s intolerance of intolerance is recruiting for the Right. Bomb threats, censorship and accusing Miriama Kamo of ‘race betrayal’ isn’t stopping crypto-fascism, it’s helping promote it.
The second National realise how much gold there is to mine in this culture war, 2020 is their’s.
PS – watching so many NZ Journalists on Twitter decry free speech in this country to ingratiate themselves with The Woke is as ironic as it is intellectually bankrupt. You know who you are.
