The stamp of authority on private UMR polling, Taxpayer Union polling and Roy Morgan polling that has been showing the Right rising have all been proven salient now TVNZ have reflected it in their polling.
The far right have been steadily outshining National and it’s time the Left understood why, because with NZ First highly likely to cross 5%, progressive policy that provides actual solutions to our inequality and poverty are going to be edged out by Winston’s brand of conservatism.
There are inevitably political winners & losers.
The Daily Blog – We have been arguing for 3 years that the middle class identity politics attack on Free Speech ruptured a dormant political fault line on the right which transformed ACT into the Right Wing values party and that this ‘activism’ by the woke is actually providing political ammunition for ACT. TDB argued that this would eventuate in ACT eclipsing National and this poll is the ‘I fucking told you so express’. Apparently woke dogma that stipulates all white people are irredeemable racists, all men are rapists and anyone defending free speech is a uniform wearing Nazi is as electorally appealing as drinking a cup of cold vomit. Who woulda thunk it?
ACT – The insanity is that ACT are a dangerous far right political party with truly horrific year zero policies that would start a race war and class war the moment dead eyed David Seymour grasped power, but he looks like Rimmer from Red Dwarf and he twerked on Dancing with the Stars, so he’s considered goofy and non threatening, like catching Syphilis at Disneyland.
Naked virulent Racism – You have to hand it to racist NZ! I thought David’s deplorable vandalism of public health by tweeting out a code for Maori to use to gain access to vaccines would shatter ACTs carefully crafted pretense at being normal and see ACT nosedive for such a racist prank, but the racists rewarded such willful mutilation of a public health campaign aimed at getting more indigenous people vaccinated! I underestimated your ignorance, your hate and your zest for life at actively attempting to push Maori aside and left for dead. Shame on me for underestimating you all.
Banjo twanging Redneck NZ – Has there ever been a better time to be alive for banjo twanging red neck NZ? ACT are promising their babies guns, their farmers to pollute forever and something hateful about Maaaaoris. This is the golden age of red neck promise where ACT can tell them any old garbage with no responsibility of ever implementing any of it. If David Seymour thought it would get him one more redneck vote, he’d fuck a tractor.
NZ First – If Winston is polling 3% this far out from the election, he is most certainly over 5% on Election Day.
Maori Party – Still polling 2% in pakeha polls suggests they are another 1% on Election Day. There is a very good chance The Maori Party will double their number of MPs come 2023.
Labour & Jacinda – Despite having to implement another brutal lockdown, they are still polling at extraordinary levels of support. 43% in the middle of a crippling pandemic is still outrageous fortune.
The middle class Identity Politics clique – These pious fools, the Wellington Twitterati with their critical race theory and critical gender theory, with their Woke dogma and their spectacular capacity to alienate voters are a wonder to behold. Drawing their support from The Spinoff and Stuff, their use of inclusivity to exclude and start Woke lynch mobs attempting to cancel anything that triggers them is mommy blogger level pettiness in a outrage Olympics that only managed to make ACT more popular by the month. The woke would eat their own young if they weren’t all vegan.
Judith & National – They are in a death spiral, ACT has taken all their vote under 60 leaving them with an ever shrinking boomer electorate of people who don’t read. Judith is so busy fighting David for leader of the Opposition that she can’t be the Leader of the Opposition. She’s fighting with ACT over who can be more racist and while 35% of the electorate love that tune, it’s never enough to win an election. You could replace Judith with Frank Sinatra, Elvis & Jesus and National would still get 21%.
Greens – With NZ First looming, the Greens will once again be politically irrelevant in 2023. They are currently flying to Glasgow for another hollow virtue signal on the environment and will return to the noxious identity politics nonsense that has them screaming ‘transphobe’ at anyone who thinks differently to them. The Greens are as insufferable as that new TV advert by Spark showing a non binary millennial loving sea shanty’s right up until they realise it’s about whaling and in perfect Millennial style then turns on it online.
ACT’s sudden rise because of National’s implosion means much of their crazy far undergrad right wing policy is not being examined at all…
- Cut and freeze the Minimum wage
- Interest back on all student loans
- No Kiwsaver subsidy
- Cancel winter energy payment
- Dump all climate crisis legislation
- no more best start payments for families with new borns
- cut welfare payments
- no tax credits for research and development
- cuts to working for families
- $7b a year cut in public services
- Abolish Maori seats
- Abolish Human Rights Commission
…no one is voting ACT because of these crazy policies, I doubt most of the new ACT converts have any idea of these polices, ACT is now a Right Wing Values Party and right wingers who have been let down by National are flocking to Seymour.
It started – LIKE I FUCKING WARNED IT WOULD – when the bloody woke identity politics activists went on their deplatforming rampage and tried to strangle free speech off.
In the end, David invited a feminist conference onto Parliament grounds because Masey Uni in Wellington deplatformed it!
The woke ended up making David a free speech hero FFS!
I warned the woke at the time that all they were doing was giving ACT the ammunition ACT would use against us, and that picking a free speech fight with Seymour could awaken a dormant electoral fault line that will bite us in the arse.
Once ACT started registering 2MPs, it became a viable political vehicle for the Gun festishists and David’s ongoing performance has made him the defacto Leader of the Opposition.
As National have floundered, ACT have looked stronger and people’s gut political values have done the rest.
The problem is ACT are so fucking right wing that the idea of them + National being the answer to 2023’s issues could only be true if we have been invaded by UFOs and they are demanding all members of the Government must be immediately handed over as human sacrifices to our new Alien overlords.
In THAT scenario, voting ACT + National makes sense.
Outside that scenario, no.
Once left wing and centrist voters realise just how far right ACT really are, the fear of keeping them from Government will outweigh whatever sin Jacinda has committed.
ACT’s sudden and uncritical rise will hurt National and win Labour the 2023 election.
It’s easy to cry wolf when the wolf is a brain hungry zombie dog hunting for human flesh in a premature infants ward.
ACT will eclipse National once the Hate Speech legislation starts up and the Woke hand Seymour even more ammunition as their threshold for ‘hate’ frightens male Labour Party voters away.
