Let me see if I can get this completely fucking straight.
The NZ Secret Intelligence Service release a POLL – yes, a bloody ‘poll’, asking NZers what the biggest national security threat was, and based on nothing more than a fucking poll, are building a blueprint to spy on NZers?
Firstly, what the fuck would your average Kiwi know about national security threats?
It’s like asking a bunch of school children who their favourite brain surgeon is!
We wouldn’t know what the national security threats are, that’s the bloody job of the SIS and an entire array of intelligence groups:
The GCSB (Government Communications Security Bureau)
The NSG (National Security Group)
The Police Intelligence Unit
The CNSN (Cabinet National Security Committee)
The ODESC (Officials’ Committee for Domestic and External Security Coordination)
The SIB (Security and Intelligence Board)
The CTCC (Counter-Terrorism Coordinating Committee)
The NICC ( National Intelligence Coordination Committee)
The IAD (Intelligence and Assessments Directorate)
The NRU (National Risk Unit)
the NSPD (National Security Policy Directorate)
and the National Centre of Research Excellence for Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (with the problematic Professor Joanne Kidman whose threshold for hate is a dress).
You are telling me, none of those agencies have any idea what our national security threats are?
Then why are we spending $300million a year on an intelligence apparatus that apparently has no idea who to spy on?
This odious campaign by the SIS, (you’ll remember them, they illegally spied on Nicky Harger remember?) they are now running a nark campaign for woke activists to dob in the new enemies of the State.
I refuse point blank to see my fellow Kiwis as my new enemy.
Just because you have a different political opinion and a different point of view to mine doesn’t make you my enemy.
Just because you are right wing, vote ACT/National or listen to Sean Plunkett doesn’t make you my enemy.
It makes you wrong, and I will argue until I am blue in the face about how wrong you are, but it doesn’t make you my enemy.
I refuse to be played by the fucking SIS into believing my fellow citizen is my enemy.
Our enemies are the banks, the 1%, the venal speculators, the unrestrained polluters and those who would use violence against us. THOSE are our enemies Comrades, not fellow Kiwis who vote differently to us.
There is a fucking enormous world of difference between someone who votes right wing and the extremists of the Citizen Sheriff Qanon cult.
This woke nark Stasi the SIS are building will start doing the same thing they did to Rachel Stewart last year when a woke nark manufactured a tweet she sent as a threat against the Trans movement and had her ‘swatted’ by the Police arriving at her home to seize her guns.
The entire case fell over and her guns returned, but this is the sort of bullshit games that will get played when you give anxious woke narks this new power.
Crime impacts the poorest the worst, yet it is the fear of crime from the middle classes that drives the punitive get tough ion crime rhetoric, I fear that same dynamic is at play here.
Middle class woke are abused online and apparently the entire Western Civilisation is at risk. If a white tertiary educated woman reads something unpleasant, every Spy in NZ must be activated!
We saw this play out during the Parliament protests when the middle class marxists of Wellington felt intimidated and threatened by the smelly lumpenproletariat (who the middle class marxists claim to fight for) and because they got spooked of the first time in their safe little middle class lives demanded the military go in and beat all the protestors off the lawns.
Here is Woke Edgelord Clint Smith arguing for the Police Commissioner Andrew Coster be sacked by the Governor General and a new internal security Board appointed via the Officials’ Committee for Domestic and External Security Coordination with new fascist powers to beat the protestors up during the protest earlier this year…
..charming. How militant do Middle Class Marxists get when they feel threatened?
I’m not playing this bullshit game, it reeks of privilege, but worse than that it’s completely fucking counter productive because THERE ARE genuine threats and risks out there now and this woke Stasi nark line will cloud and eclipse SIS attention on the legitimate threats.
Because we refused to de-escalte the Dumb Lives Matter protests on Parliament’s Lawns, Trevor Mallard radicalised 5000 new extremists and those extremists will only feel more threatened as economic dislocation builds. There are cell groups and lone wolf threats out there and they need the intelligence apparatus to be monitoring them and intervening when the threshold of operational possibility is crossed, but this woke nark Stasi will be inundated with every woke activist wanting to dob in someone who said something transphobic or referred to Māori negatively.
That game of dobbing in your twitter nemesis because they’ve developed an ‘Us and Them’ mentality will simply flood the SIS with complaints that have nothing to do with national security and waste time and resources on identifying the actual threats!
I refuse to allow the SIS to convince me my enemies are fellow Kiwis and not the banks, the 1%, the venal speculators, the unrestrained polluters and those few extremists who would actually use violence against us.
Dear vast majority of fellow Kiwis – you are not my enemy and I refuse to be scared into believing you are.
