After his infamous train wreck of an interview (followed by an equally appalling attempt by the Prime Minister) Faafoi is now officially in hiding in the hope of avoiding any more attention to an issue that is internally polling 80% in the negative.
The fact that neither the Minister nor Prime Minister can credibly stand 5minutes questioning over what will and won’t criminalize speech is a testament to how poorly they have thought this through.
The criticism of why the Government believed they could simply waltz into a free speech fight with nothing more than ‘feelings’ as an argument honestly asks hard questions of their strategic team.
Everything the Government has attempted to put up as an argument justifying the criminalization of speech is intellectually bankrupt and appallingly stupid.
But for real gasp inducing arrogance are the tribal Labour and Green apologists desperately trying to justify this fucking nonsense.
If National was attempting to ram through hate speech laws allowing the Police to define hate and imprison people based on that definition, the collective Left would be on the streets rioting, but because it’s our team in power (and we are so fucking noble), we are defending state tyranny!
That’s why the woke cult are such hypocrites!
There are better ways to protect minorities in a liberal progressive democracy and I outline these in my submission to the Ministry of Justice, but the naked desire by so many on the Left to gain legislative weapons to attack those whose opinions they dislike is just another shocking insight into how fascist your average middle class identity politics acolyte really is.
These people want a woke caliphate so their revenge fantasies against everyone they dislike can be actualized in the present.
Their daily to do list would look like this:
-self actualize while taking selfie for Instagram
-correct others on their te Reo pronunciation
-cycle to drop off recycling
-call police and report a misuse of pronouns as a hate crime
-get into Twitter argument about Meghan Markle living her best life, report to Police as hate crime and try to get the person sacked
-bake bread & be present with gratitude
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!
I can’t tell the difference between a woke lynch mob and a sensible sentencing lynch mob any more!
This is why the Left needs Winston!
