There is a schism at Stuff between the political journalists who view the woke culture as crazy and the woke opinion writers who either deny cancel culture exists at all or claims criticism of hate speech are ‘hyperbole‘ and ‘political chatter‘..
Today one of their gelded woke males jaw droppingly sided with the Maori Party demand to form a secret police stasi to hunt down opinions woke staff don’t like…
If you want specifics, then just look at the Māori Party’s call for a joint task force to investigate anti-Māori hate speech.
It was forced by what the co-leaders, Debbie Ngarewa-Packer and Rawiri Waititi, described as an unprecedented upsurge of violent online anti-Māori rhetoric.
The thought of these videos, the evil rage they contain, makes my gut start churning.
…Is there a greater sin as a journalist to actively welcome an erosion of free speech while ushering in a Stasi?
I am pro the Maori Party, I believe they are a crucial voice in NZ politics and I see the Treaty as the founding document of our nation.
I also hunted down and outed an actual online white supremacist who ran an Australian neoNazi website and back in 1997 on TV3 I tracked down West Auckland NeoNazis Unit88.
I also set up the MANA Party, so please, don’t dare attempt to denigrate my following criticism as racist against the Maori Party because fuck you, my record speaks for itself as a supporter of Maori Tino rangatiratanga and Nazi hunting.
But there are philosophical limits to that support and the Maori Party’s terrifying call to found our very own stasi is that limit.
Comrades, I’m a class anarchist leftist, I believe the demarcation line of power in a capitalist democracy is not between a myriad of identities, but between the 1% richest plus their 9% enablers vs the 90% rest of us. I see the State as the crucial structure to empower the many not the few BUT I also acknowledge that the State can be the biggest danger to the individual and as such demands an ever hostile check and balance over those state powers.
That’s why the suggestion by the Maori Party to demand a white supremacist stasi is so terrifying.
Of all the voices to know the dire ramifications of a politicized police force, it should be bloody Maori!
The Maori Party are citing the need for a stasi because 2 racist YouTube clips made them angry and fearful.
These videos were hunted down by woke Twitter activists who cried out a double standard over Police arresting those who threatened Simeon Brown and the slow arrest of a man who threatened the Maori Party. Turns out the arrested man has mental health issues.
The second video saw the man who made political threats against Maori lose his job, which I would have thought was a sure fire way of pushing a person into radicalized racial terrorism.
In the easily triggered world of woke intersectionist grief hierarchy, both videos are hate speech and deserving of cancellation, harassment and prosecution. In the world of actual intelligence analysis these two videos would barely cause a ripple because they wouldn’t have been deemed credible as threats.
A mentally ill loudmouth and bitter truck driving Pom are the least of our terrorism worries.
Now I disagree with Comrade Chris Trotter when he says there is no way to catch a Lone Wolf white supremacist terrorist, what everyone likes to conveniently ignore in the Tarrant case is that the SIS and GCSB did intercept files relating to guerilla warfare tactics, Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri and Nowegian right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik, but because there was no secondary intelligence profile like connecting the geographical area of download with complaints from shooting ranges, Tarrant flew under the radar.
We have the capacity to catch these guys by using the existing powers focused differently, not by importing Orwell’s 1984!
Which brings us to the Maori Party’s gasp inducing demand to set up a secret police force comprised of the SIS and the Police Intelligence Unit to hunt down white supremacists.
If any other political party asked to create a secret police force that hunts for word crimes and thought criminals there would be rioting in the street but because it’s the Maori Party and it’s aimed at something we all hate that’s somehow fine?
We already have the tools to catch and find white supremacist terror threats, what the woke activists believe however is that micro aggressions lead to macro violence so ANYONE who disagrees with them is a potential threat.
Being woke is less a philosophical discourse of objective progressive reasoning and more a faith based religion, like a cult.
And where would this new white supremacy stasi get its information from? Why the same woke Twitter cult currently providing it.
So the Maori Party are talking about wanting a secret police who hunt down political enemies using tips offs from ideological stormtroopers?
What do you all think the right wing will do with a SIS-Police Intelligence Unit that hunts down political enemies once Labour lose the 2031 election (yes I think Jacinda can win the next 2 elections) – are we seriously considering setting up a secret police force to openly hunt political enemies with military grade mass surveillance powers?
What fucking planet are you people on?
This is the worst idea in the world and normally I’d laugh it off, but seeing the steep ascendency of middle class identity politics and their triggered feelings dictating policy and law, I think I’ll cry.
Let me be as clear as I can comrades. Don’t get tricked into creating a stasi simply because the enemy they are being set up to hunt is one you like to hate.
We have the tools to catch genuine threats, the Woke want tools to catch people they don’t like. The only ones licking their fangs in anticipation of the extra funding, powers and expansion of their remit are the SIS.
We should start keeping a list of those journalists who call for free speech to be eroded and we should never allow them to speak without reminding people they called for a police state to sanction our speech.
For these are the quislings who would betray our civil liberties so their pretensions can feel mollified.
Citizens of conscience must always spit when they see these journalistic traitors.
