New Zealand punters pointing to the Orange Lives Matter Insurrection and trying to claim ‘it could happen here’ are really wishing it could happen here so they can live out all their Hate Speech Identity Politics martyr fantasies.
The true demarcation of power in NZ isn’t between neo-nazis and the righteous, it’s between property speculators and the poor!
The only similarity between Orange Lives Matter insurrection and NZ is this…
Authorities are more than twice as likely to break up a left-wing protest than a right-wing protest.
…the exact same ideological blindest we have in NZ!
That’s the only similarity between what has happened in America and NZ, that the State treats us on the Left far more aggressively than they ever do the Right. Suggesting that the toxic polarisation that stains American politics will occur here is the wrong comparison to try and draw.
