Millennial culture was brought up by helicopter and bulldozer parents in an educational landscape that went from ‘be the best you can be’ to ‘everyone is special’.
They couldn’t impact the neoliberal economic hegemony but they could savagely police micro aggressions and conflate everything into the worst subjective pain ever.
Add in social media and algorithms designed to enhance dramas alongside critical race and gender theories and you have a cacophony of wounds fighting for social hierarchy.
In the subjective world of the woke, a misuse of the language dictates of the conclave can be elevated into a genocide against disabled queer babies within one tweet.
That’s why the Hate Speech law debate is becoming so radioactive.
People aren’t fearing what Jacinda will do with this new power, it’s obvious from the interview and two u-turns within a week to highlight the Prime Minister has no actual idea what her policy does, no it’s the growing fear that woke social media lynch mobs will gain the power to criminalize whatever their snowflake triggered safety spaces demand.
That they will begin a purge with a tsunami of complaints to Police about what they feel is ‘hate speech’.
The chilling impact of the rampaging woke mobs are being seen now in the case of Rachel Stewart who had a Twitter argument with a male lecturing her on feminism manufactured into a threat against Trans people and saw the cops bust into her home and seize her guns.
Rachel Stewart matters because the woke keep giving us these horrific glimpses of what they intend to do if the Hate Speech laws are passed.
Take for example the latest woke criticism of the Hate Speech laws from Stuff, by of all people, Stuff’s Homewares ‘journalist’.
I know, why the Christ is Stuff’s Homewares ‘Journalist’ jumping into the fucking hate speech debate, what insight could they provide where philosophical titans have strode?
What else could Stuff’s Homewares ‘journalist’ add that Socrates, Milton and Mill might have missed?
Terrifyingly a lot.
Stuff’s Homewares ‘Journalist’ published a letter she had received from some stupid old bat complaining about a recent article on gay lounges.
Now personally I’m a fan of gay lounges, they are always tastefully designed and make me depressed that no matter how hard I try, my heteronormative cis male interior decorating skills will never match the exquisite beauty and art of a gay lounge.
But this letter writer wasn’t a fan…
This week, I received a rather unpleasant email from a mother in Blenheim.
Subject line: Depraved homosexuality promotion.
The promotion in question? A news article about some Pride-flag-themed couches from Ikea.
“Every time these self-confessed queer people are mentioned in the media, the main topic is their physical attraction, like sniffing dogs, to certain parts of the anatomy,” she writes.
“In addition, to portray them as normal when this group of disturbed people is continually crying out for more mental health help is hypocrisy at its worse [sic].
“Please don’t encourage an increase in the cost to the already over burdened benefactor, by attempting to make queer people believe they are normal. The confusion can’t be helping them, nor the kids around them.”
…so a dumb old bat who is projecting her obvious sexual insecurities on a piece of fucking furniture. At worst the letter wasted your time, at best it’s a letter brought out at the end of year Party and read aloud so everyone can mock the writer.
But not for the Homewares ‘journalist’ at Stuff, they bewilderingly blasted the letter as Hate Speech and gleefully warned that this very letter would see a person having the Police called out on them!
Is this hate speech? Under the current New Zealand law, no.
Is it hateful? I would argue yes, and under a new hate speech law it could be a civil offence.
That’s what is so terrifying about this column on Hate Speech, this Woke columnist’s threshold for what she thinks a person should be arrested and spend 3 years in prison for is a fairly banal letter from a basic writer who clearly has some issues regarding their own sexuality.
How the fuck is that letter hate speech?
Does some basic mum from Blenheim deserve 3 years in prison for that letter? Really?
When you appreciate the brittle subjective timid threshold these woke want to claim as Hate Speech you suddenly glimpse the Big Sister fascism they so gleefully wish to be empowered by.
While Stuff’s Homewares ‘journalist’ had nothing intellectual to add to the Hate Speech debate, they did show us the anticipation for their purge and the very low threshold they will claim is Hate Speech.
Don’t forget, last month Golriz claimed the Producer’s justification for the movie ‘They Are Us’ was literally white supremacy because the Producer was focusing on Jacinda and not the victims!
Golriz’s definition threshold for ‘white supremacy’ is so low that milk would be considered a hate crime! Her claim that the Producer is a white supremacist suggests she sees the KKK every time she changes her sheets! If a white person disagreeing with her equates to white supremacy we are in an identity politics theology not a functioning democracy.
For the Woke, micro aggressions lead to macro violence so the micro aggression policing of anyone who disagrees with woke dogma must be executed without mercy to protect the sacredness of trigger free spaces.
Voters will stop fearing minorities facing Hate Speech and start fearing they will be accused of Hate Speech.
This fiasco is going to hurt us on the Left!
The woke are so blinded by their own righteousness that they can’t stop themselves handing ammunition to the Right.
This is why we are seeing the movements in Roy Morgan.
