Ummmm, policing woke micro aggressions is really really really important, but the planet is actually melting

All the Left are good for in NZ now is screaming NAZI at protestors hurt by the economic mandates of Covid. Great.

Look, it’s very, very, very important that we all participate in woke micro aggression policing and denounce and cancel and deplatform EVERYONE who doesn’t agree with woke dogma.

It’s terribly important activism for the middle class marxists to feel terribly self important.

What is a progress if it can’t slavishly recognise the 17 000 different gender identities and pay sacred homage to each one?

Which is all fine and dandy and while I would never ever question such militant divisiveness for .1% of the population, could I politely point out that the fucking planet is melting…

It’s 40 degrees Celsius warmer than normal in eastern Antarctica. Scientists are stunned

The coldest location on the planet has experienced an episode of warm weather this week unlike any ever observed, with temperatures over the eastern Antarctic ice sheet soaring up to 40 degrees Celsius above normal. The warmth has smashed records and shocked scientists.

“This event is completely unprecedented and upended our expectations about the Antarctic climate system,” said Jonathan Wille, a researcher studying polar meteorology at Université Grenoble Alpes in France, in an email.

“Antarctic climatology has been rewritten,” tweeted Stefano Di Battista, a researcher who has published studies on Antarctic temperatures. He added that such temperature anomalies would have been considered “impossible” and “unthinkable” before they actually occurred.

…40 degrees above where it should be?

That’s terrifying and yet the political response from the Left in NZ doesn’t have the intellectual muscle to offer anything beyond pronouns and closing the pay gap for white managerial women.

I’d hate to suggest we are wasting our time on woke virtue signals that offer nothing more than purity tests for middle class activists to feel superior, b-u-t, that’s exactly what we are doing.

The climate crisis trumps all other issues, yet we do nothing while the planet burns.

All the Left are good for in NZ now is screaming NAZI at protestors hurt by the economic mandates of Covid.

Great.

These days the Political Left in NZ are less a progressive movement for the material well being of fellow citizens and more a group therapy session for middle class wankers.

  1. Didn’t the main Climate Activist group cancel themselves for being the wrong colour?

    (They could have just dyed themselves purple or something and turbo’d on…)

  2. My guess as to why the govt. is slow on remedial climate action is that the economy and the pandemic are more tangible items to focus on. How to manage financially is felt more immediately by the citizens – especially for those less well off. The pandemic also affects people day to day. Whereas the climate change factors though scientifically established seem more distant and abstract.

  3. I thought my attitude to all this woke wankery was just part of getting old and grouchy. BUT NO, its not. Its actually because the whole woke world is a form of denying reality. Maybe, just maybe not only is a spade a spade, but it is useful as a tool to wake up wokesters.

  4. Bang on Martin, great post.
    Not only are they ignoring the climate meltdown, this constant feminizing of men, whinging and whining about everything like a puritan and making everything whimpy is forcing young working class lads into the hands of the ALT right. They are reacting against this goddamn awful woke bullshit and being patted on the back for doing so by the real enemy.

  5. Oh fuck ! Indeed.
    I’m outside way down south and there’s an entirely novel and very warm nor easter blowing…
    Here’s a front row seat to global extinction. I’d suggest buying a house in the lee of the Takitimu’s pronto.

  6. The ‘movement’ was just another political ‘harvesting’ special interest event.

    With the objective of reinventing the wheel, Capitalism disguised as ‘Green Washing Capitalism’.

    It’s a non starter. Hence greta, that widdle girl who had public tantrums has grown up into a young millionaire with all the freedumbs that comes with wealth.

    Now we’re back to the same old grind of War, Famine and World Peace! And, who wants to rule the world!

    PS. Lockdowns were the best thing for the environment. It reduced output massively.

    Gaia thanks you.
