With the Maori Party pushing for a secret police force to hunt down white supremacists based on woke narking, the danger that the NZ Police could seize the Hate Speech law and start an unofficial Stasi is a genuine concern.
Police are already champing at the bit with illegal face recognition mass surveillance powers, they can’t believe their luck at the rising demands from Hate Speech mania.
The activist woke see hate speech laws as a weapon to smash those they hate by manufacturing threats the way they did with a Rachel Stewart.
So imagine 5000 complaints in the first month of the hate speech law passing.
If Police don’t take any complaints to prosecution that will start a new wave of criticism from the woke that Police aren’t protecting them from hate.
But what if Police actually see this as a unique opportunity to gain more power and resources.
Police could say to Jacinda, ‘Look Prime Minister, we would love to arrest all those hateful people saying hateful things, but there are so many complaints, we need extra resources”.
Police could argue for more resources to arrest more people from the tsunami of woke complaints.
Suddenly an operating Stasi to hunt down hate speech gets specific funding and infrastructure and before we know it, Police are incentivizing triggered millennials to make Police complaints to keep the entire madness going.
The unintended consequences of this Hate Speech law continue to mutate.
Don’t give the Police this kind of power – it’s incredibly dangerous.
The same woke writing off free speech concerns are the exact same people who will call police with hate speech complaints.
When we stand for free speech we are Nazis.
When they push for police powers they intend to use to lock people up for 3 years it’s fucking noble!
Look, I’ll cut the woke a deal.
You can win the hate speech vs free speech clusterfuck if you promise to call the prisons that Hate Speech heretics will be sent to as ‘gulags’ ok?
Because that way at least your self righteousness can be ironic.
