Soz lol cat wokies, no Hate Speech purge for you, the Edgeler has spoken!
Soz Spin-off and stuff subscribers, Wellington Twitterati, the woke, middle class identity politic micro aggression policers , 4th wave feminists and trans ally mummy bloggers, you can’t get your hate speech laws to start a purge because the great legal mind that is Graeme Edgeler, he who must be obeyed when it comes to legal rights (and my lawyer against the State in their illegal breach if my civil rights) has come out against this Hate Speech law.
Watcha gonna do wokies??? You can’t cancel The edgeler! There’s no action station petition to remove him, he can’t be cancelled!
He is of course correct, the activist woke want to weaponize Hate Speech laws so they can immediately begin a purge against anyone who has disagreed with them on social media in the last 5 years, Police will be swamped with complaints and will be under political pressure to start prosecuting.
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.
Throwing someone in jail for 3years using a law defined by the police is not a liberal progressive democracy no matter how noble the life goals!
The speed and glee with which the Woke are demanding the criminalization of speech means the knock impacts are being ignored.
What about inadvertently creating more radicalization?
Why has NO ONE asked if this heavy handed over the top approach will actually generate more radicalization?
Won’t we be inadvertently creating a thousand new radical recruits by allowing Woke activists to play out all their revenge fantasies by constantly demanding Police investigate everyone they hate?
We recently saw the woke have a racist dickhead sacked from his job. What happens when that creates a radicalized backlash and pushes desperate people into acts of violence?
Why is everyone so excited about gaining powers that inadvertently cause the very radicalization the woke claim they are fighting?
It’s because this isn’t about social policy, it’s a revenge fantasy for the woke to hurt those they disagree with.
Woke justice has already cut 9% from Labour, let’s not allow the woke on Twitter mutilate Jacinda now!
