Oh here we go…
The recent visit by British anti-trans rights activist Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull has sparked a massive increase in the level of online hatred directed at the trans community here.
Analysts monitoring online extremism say it has hit new lows with one researcher describing it as “genocidal”.
They say the content is now being widely distributed by anti-mandate and anti-government groups.
And there are fears violence could spill out into the world.
Meanwhile, the researchers say the amount of hate being directed at the Green Party co-leader Marama Davidson is now as bad as that towards former Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
Shaneel Lal was a central figure in the protest against the visit by Keen-Minshull, known as Posie Parker.
Late last week Shaneel Lal was named Young New Zealander of the Year for their for work for rainbow communities – including the fight to ban conversion therapy.
The spotlight has prompted a backlash. Lal has been threatened with violence and feared for their safety at the awards ceremony in Auckland last Thursday and the threats prompted extra security at the event.
…hold on, hold, on, hold on.
Let’s just be very clear where the line here is.
MANY New Zealander’s watched the pure trans joy and saw a woman literally chased from the town square, and MANY were critical of that mob aggression because political violence is an anathema to the vast majority of Kiwis.
Are they all transphobic Nazis now?
MANY New Zealander’s thought Marama Davidson’s bewildering woke war on White Cis Males was a stupid thing to say.
Are they all transphobic Nazis now?
MANY New Zealander’s considered Shaneel Lal a controversial winner of the Young NZer of the Year because they had just led that mob and because their commentary to date has been interesting to say the least…
…is anyone critical of that now transphobic Nazis?
Outrage Olympics is a feature of culture war dynamics.
I’m not saying there hasn’t been some ugly awful hateful shit said, but the context of this matters right?
The Academic Gatekeepers are attempting to convince the mainstream media to ignore these issues because the stupid masses can’t be trusted to make the right decision on these social engineering projects.
I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a thousand times.
The Left can’t get dragged into a culture war we will lose!
Social Justice pure temple politics isolates and alienates to seperate the good from the pure.
Economic Justice sees society divided between the 1% richest + 9% enablers vs the the 90% rest of us for Broadchurch Class Solidarity!
Sean Plunket is back on Twitter, so that attempt to cancel him was not only petty, but it actually provides ammunition to the Political Right.
A point I’ve been making about middle class identity politics activism for the last 6 years you will note.
What I don’t understand about that piece of state funded journalism…
…was that it asks what was Sean Plunket’s motivation WITHOUT ASKING Sean Plunket what his motivation was???
How is that journalism if they don’t actually ask him?
Look, this is all bullshit!
We must urgently turn to Universal Left Policies that lift all people.
There are numerically more poor white babies than Māori and Pacifica babies combined.
Food inflation will hit 15% mid year, the desperate of NZ will turn to us for solutions and will find us arguing over gender identity issues and they will hate us for it.
There. Is. A. Fucking. Election. In. 6. Fucking. Months.
Boldly proclaiming everyone who had a legitimate issue with what has transpired post Posie Parker as some kind of Trans hating Crypto-Fascist is the last cup of cold sick we are demanding voters drink before we allow them to vote for us.
It’s like the Left can’t help but alienate anymore.
