The funniest part about Chippy’s decision to kick the hate speech culture war (that the Left couldn’t ever win) off the political agenda is that the Wellington Woke themselves became the reason the Labour Leadership dumped it.
When Chippy called for ‘Bread and Butter Politics’, he was arguing for delivery over ideology, economic justice over social justice, and you’ve seen that with many of the policies burnt in last weeks bonfire purge, but the Hate Speech decision was different.
What was argued privately to the Labour Leadership was that our middle class woke activists are so drunk on PostMeToo power that they would immediately latch onto any new Hate Speech powers and start dredging up every Facebook and Twitter argument they’ve had and claim it is hate speech.
The Rachel Stewart example was highlighted, in that case, woke activists were able to manufacture a tweet into a threat while Rachel was arguing gender critical feminism with a woke bloke who wanted to lecture Rachel, (a well known lesbian and feminist), about feminism.
In that case, the woke were able to get a Police ‘ally’ to pretend the threat was serious and have her house searched by the cops who removed all her guns.
In the end the Police had to back down and drop the charges and threat of prosecution and returned all her property.
It was a case of SWATTING where activists pretend there is a firearms threat to warrant police overkill.
The Labour Leadership were warned that our middle class woke activist base are so fucking insane that they wouldn’t be able to help themselves even if the new hate speech laws weren’t intended for this purpose.
Watching the usual Wellington Woke decry the decision is funny because so many of their social media timelines were used as evidence of how crazy our activist base can get.
If only they comprehended and knew that they were used as evidence, oh the lols.
The Labour Leadership were asked to consider the impact on the election if a wave of our middle class woke Identitarians went on a cancel culture jihad against all those who they wished to smite.
We already know that the middle class woke have alienated and damaged the Left with their cancel culture purges, do we really want them having the power to start Free Speech wars every day leading up to the election?
Far better to immediately kick the entire debate off the political agenda altogether.
One of the reasons Labour call it ‘Bread and Butter Politics’ is because most middle class work are gluten free vegans who would run a mile away from actual Bread or Butter.
Good, let’s keep the woke and their puritanical culture purges out of this election if we want any chance of beating a National/ACT Government in October.
