I read the terrorist’s manifesto and I don’t recall him referring to Trans Allies or gender identity, so why criminalising the misuse of pronouns is being mooted as a response to white supremacy terrorism is utterly beyond me!
It’s particularly galling because the problem wasn’t hate speech laws, the problem was that the entire Intelligence apparatus of NZ didn’t bother doing their job, which is to protect us from the next possible terror threat!
This is the list of the NZ security apparatus, many acronyms you’ve never heard of, who are supposed to keep us safe with mass surveillance powers from this very type of terrorism, and I WILL CONTINUE PRINTING THIS LIST until you start appreciating how enormous a failure this was…
- The SIS (Secret Intelligence Services)
- The GCSB (Government Communications Security Bureau)
- The NSG (National Security Group)
- The Police Intelligence Unit
- The CNSN (Cabinet National Security Committee)
- The ODESC (Officials’ Committee for Domestic and External Security Coordination)
- The SIB (Security and Intelligence Board)
- The CTCC (Counter-Terrorism Coordinating Committee)
- The NICC ( National Intelligence Coordination Committee)
- The IAD (Intelligence and Assessments Directorate)
- The NRU (National Risk Unit)
- The NSPD (National Security Policy Directorate)
…the failure was with that list, that list who cost us over $100million each year to ensure this type of atrocity fuelled by extremism doesn’t rupture and cause mass loss of life!
To fucking pretend that Gender Identity Hate Speech is a response to this abomination of an intelligence failure is fucking infantile!
Why don’t we call this push for Gender Identity Hate Speech for what it really is? The criminalisation of Rachel Stewart & Ani O’Brien.
You have all seen how feral the trans debate between Gender Critical Feminists (TERFS by their enemies) and the Fourth Wave Feminist, Non Gender Binary Activist, Trans Ally Woke Stormtroopers has been online.
We’ve all seen the woke public shaming and cancel culture lynchings erupt in our social media feeds, like violent 1930s street fights as various factions attempt to mutilate the other for dominance.
The bewildering venom from this schism makes feuding Drug Cartels look tame.
I am putting money on the table that within a month of this law passing, it will be immediately seized upon by the woke to make criminal complaints against leading voices of the Gender Critical Feminist movement, people like Rachel Stewart and Ani O’Brien for old tweets they will have sent arguing their case.
Reasonable people would say I’m being hyperbolic in making that claim, to which I would reply, ‘Comrade, you’ve seen how this fight gets waged in your own social media feed, you know in your waters I am 100% right’.
This schism is so bitter, so cruel, so relentless in its defining the other as Nazis on meth, that a billion petty vendettas will immediately exploit this new hate speech law to wage final retribution on their enemies.
You’ve seen the Wellington Twitteratti in action, you know they can’t help themselves.
Now, personallyI take a position that gets me in trouble with both sides.
I’m old fashioned when it comes to this, I think the path to finding your true self is one of the most important journeys of the human experience.
I find the idea of a spectrum of gender and identity to be as uncontroversial as the range of hair colour, skin colour and eye colour.
That some men believe they are trapped in a womens body, or a woman trapped in a mans body, or people who believe they are both, or neither is not controversial to me at all and I believe it is basic courtesy to refer to an individual in the terms they wish.
The Trans community, who suffer terribly from mental health issues, deserve respect and the full protection of the law, especially when it comes to employment issues and renting rights and they need a process far less punitive than the current system to obtain basic legal paperwork to gain basic agency.
If a Trans person ever wished for whatever reason to share a cell or changing room with me, I would have no problems whatsoever with that.
and this is what damns me as transphobic by some woke activists, as a heteronormative white cis male I don’t believe I have any right to demand women accept people they don’t want in their women only spaces.
That’s an issue for the sisters and aunties to determine, and I can’t in any good conscience tell women who they should and shouldn’t accept, that’s the very antithesis of fucking feminism!!!
Rachel and Ani and many other feminists and women have legitimate arguments and concerns as women, as feminists and as citizens that you can’t simply criminalise!
This debate cuts to the very heart of identity and how we perceive ourselves, it requires so much more love and respect than it has attracted and based on the toxic manner it has been waged, I have no doubt it’s petty enough to hunt down women like Ani & Rachel for a wave of vendettas once it passes.
Politically there is real danger here for Labour.
The Prime Minister is emotionally welded to the Christchurch atrocity because she waded so deep through the trauma and raw pain in its aftermath.
She almost had to have her arm popped out of its socket to finally cancel the Christchurch memorial this year and only because the eruption of Covid might have tuned the memorial into a super spreader event, and I think even Mohammed would roll his eyes over the irony of that.
Jacinda wouldn’t be human if she hadn’t been imprinted deeply by that grief and horror, which unfortunately means she will burn any and all political capital in forcing these hate speech laws through, which is inane because this happened from a cascade failure of the intelligence services – blasphemy laws and gender identity hate speech isn’t a solution to a cascade intelligence failure!
Watching the Woke allow the entire NZ Intelligence apparatus off the hook for their total failure with the Christchurch terror attacks by demanding hate speech laws is one of the great intellectual failures of 2020.
This is how ACT break 10% by June next year.
