By censoring the latest damning documentary and expose on the horror that their department has now become, Oranga Tamariki have cleverly bought themselves some breathing space…
UPDATE Judge orders Newsroom to remove from our website the Melanie Reid documentary on Oranga Tamariki taking children from foster parents in a ‘reverse uplift’
A High Court judge has ordered Newsroom to remove from this site a video documentary on Oranga Tamariki social workers removing children from their ‘forever’ foster home.
In the High Court at Wellington, Justice Francis Cooke also directed Newsroom to remove two other articles, one a full text story on the findings of the documentary and one reporting the reaction of Children’s Minister Kelvin Davis to the story, and remove a photograph that appeared on a fourth story.
…the fucking audacity is that Oranga Tamariki have managed to censor the story under the pretence of looking after the 4 children’s welfare which they clearly are not looking after.
This is a reminder that the Sate looks after itself while pretending to care about you.
Oranga Tamariki took this story down before the rest of NZ had a chance to see it, and they have done that because once the rest of white NZ realises what Oranga Tamariki have done here, there will be an explosive backlash against Labour.
Oranga Tamariki placed 4 Māori children with a white foster family.
Oranga Tamariki told those 4 Māori Children and the white foster family that it was a ‘forever family’ in that the Children would no longer be endlessly moved around and could finally call this place home.
The white foster family sold their home and bought a bigger home for their new family.
It lasted 2 years.
Then Oranga Tamariki came under heavy criticism for their Māori baby uplift programme that uses big data algorithms to save the State down stream costs in what is nothing more than a neoliberal welfare experiment and that criticism of due process and compassionate outcome sparked a panicked response to review all Māori children placed with white families and then insanely remove those vulnerable children from those white parents.
By pretending to care about the 4 children they are traumatising, Oranga Tamariki have managed to temporarily censor Newsroom so they can buy time to desperately get their story straight before Pakeha NZ realises what they’ve done.
Panicking and just removing Māori children from white homes they’ve been told are permanent, Oranga Tamariki have shown they are a broken and counter productive agency who are actually endangering and causing pain in Children’s lives.
If Kelvin Davis doesn’t sack Grainne Moss, then he should step down now.
Once the footage is released again, Pakeha NZ will explode with rage, Labour have no comprehension of what is about to hit them in the backlash and Kelvin looks as bad as his poetry sounds.
