MARK THIS SAD DAY COMRADES! Mark this sad day, for it is the day our Free Market Prince besmirched his virtue by rejecting high principled debate for the sewer of National’s race baiting filth!
A lot of attention will be on the jaw dropping hypocrisy of Nicole McKee, and we will get to her in a moment, but the far larger philosophical sin here is that ACT, the Party of the individual over the State, has so cravenly played to racist tropes while ignoring the rights of the individual!
Regardless of being a gang member or not, the individual has a right to meet their political representatives to discuss their concerns! ACT are seriously pimping for the State to selectively choose who it will and won’t meet? How the fuck is that standing up for the rights of the individual? What’s next from ACT – a list of words you can’t discuss with MPs?
Who is ACT in the side of? The State or only the individuals they like?
The sin that will resonate with the wider public however is the astonishing revelation that ACT gun fetishist and future war criminal, Nicole McKee, met the Mongrel Mob after flaying Marama Davidson and Willie Jackson for meeting gangs!
The gasp inducing audacity and hypocrisy to attack other Politicians for something you yourself are doing is extraordinary!
Hilariously, McKee claims the meetings were different and I suppose that’s true. Marama and Willie met with them to work on strategies that heal and provide off ramps to a life of violence and pain where as McKee wanted to discuss gun rights!
So according to ACT:
Meeting with gangs to find strategies that lift that community out of crime = bad?
Meeting with gangs to discuss gun rights = good?
That sounds like a Party who has a very weird relationship with guns.
The concern was that when Seymour flirted with the gun nuts he unleashed a stacked hand against him, fears are that he’s now held hostage by these machine gun enthusiasts in an undisclosed basement in Epsom.
While David is leader, ACT might remain values driven enough to contain the worst extremes of the far right, but the second he is gone expect the next leader to exploit the strength he’s built.
You get the feeling McKee is already looking to redecorate his leaders office with a shark tank and water boarding table.
