Green MP Golriz Ghahraman fears ACT leader David Seymour’s call to abolish the “hard-left” Human Rights Commission “shows how far” the party has “moved to the extreme right”.
Seymour has called for the Human Rights Commission to be abolished before, but doubled down on Thursday after the organisation unveiled its manifesto which includes priorities ACT says “advance a left-wing agenda”.
It calls for a new hate speech law, the minimum wage to be a living wage, fair pay agreements, two new Human Rights Commissioners for elderly and indigenous people, and to advance recommendations to increase benefit levels.
…oh NOW she’s worried ACT are extreme right?
So why the fuck did the Greens and their woke clown activists enable ACT to gain this power in the first place?
Remember, as I pointed out a thousand fucking times, ACT were a dormant political force RIGHT UP UNTIL the Greens and their woke identity politics clowns handed ACT the free speech ammunition!!!
How many times did I blog that you morons were awaking a political vehicle for the right by trying to strangle off free speech? The LEFT should be the champions of free speech, not the fucking right and the Greens plus their woke clowns, handed him that fucking victory, and the second ACT started registering 2 MPs they became a viable political vehicle for all that frustrated right wing vote.
The Greens and their woke activist clowns enabled ACT into this monstrous right wing mutation they have become, the total disconnect between ACTs level of support now and how the Greens built them up is unbelievable.
And anyway, this latest call to destroy the Human Rights Commission is the least of their extreme right wing craziness. Did no one in the Greens read ACT’s manifesto? Does it only exist if David Seymour tweets it? Have the Greens become that captured by Twitter that nothing else occurs outside it?
TDB has been pointing out the neoliberal horror of ACT for quite some time.
I thought ACT’s climate change policy was fucking insane and could not be topped for sheer ideological lunacy because it was a fascist romper stomper blitzkrieg of every worst element of the free market set loose on a rapidly warming planet.
The Zero Carbon Bill would be dumped, the Emissions Trading Scheme would be dumped, the ban on new offshore oil and gas exploration permits would be dumped and mining would be allowed on conservation land.
At a time when Siberia is in flames, California is in flames, the earliest and strongest Hurricane measured coming ashore and a pandemic triggered by destruction of the environment – ACT would like to accelerate the pollution that is sparking this acceleration of climate warming events!
But it gets worse.
ACT have looked at the insane lack of capacity that has been glaringly highlighted by the pandemic and after 35 years of a State amputated by neoliberalism, David’s come up with an unbelievable idea folks.
Let’s slash the State!
That’s right. The thing that is barely keeping the plague out because it has been so slashed back by David’s ideological coven, will be EVEN MORE slashed back if ACT are ever allowed anywhere near the levers of political power.
Here is a list of their neoliberal madness
- Cut and freeze the Minimum wage
- Interest back on all student loans
- No Kiwsaver subsidy
- Cancel winter energy payment
- Dump all climate crisis legislation
- no more best start payments for families with new borns
- cut welfare payments
- no tax credits for research and development
- cuts to working for families
- $7b a year cut in public services
- Abolish Maori seats
Screw all that because Golriz suddenly NOW thinks ACT are extreme right???
Clearly the Greens live in some magical fantasy world where their counterproductive woke activism never has negative backlash that creates political ramifications later and apparently things only become ‘extreme right’ when their precious bloody Wellington Bureaucrat mates are threatened.
It’s barely 2 weeks since the election and I’m already regretting voting Green.
