Shane Jones has slammed the use of te reo Māori in the public sector, defending the incoming government’s plan to change the names of some major agencies.
We forgot how power crazed the Woke were between 2016 and 2020.
The Wellington Woke’s weaponisation of Te Reo was always problematic. Remember how they hounded some poor shmuck out of their job for not liking a chocolate bar wrapper in Te Reo?
I always thought putting the names of Government Departments and Agencies into Māori was always a dumb virtue signal.
The vast majority don’t read Māori, putting the names of Government Agencies and Departments into Māori names is confusing for the vast majority.
It’s also fucking disingenuous!
Oranga Tamariki have a legacy of damaging Māori kids, brown washing the name doesn’t clean that slate, it merely camouflages it.
The name should be English first followed by the Māori name. Simple right, but the Woke were on a power trip that saw representation as the highest importance over practical use.
For me the Māori language is a cultural gift.
I use basic Māori every day with my hellos and goodbyes and affirmations, but beyond a handful of words I don’t speak the language for fear of mispronunciation which would immediately lead to a Woke Wellington Wanker screaming that I am racist, but I certainly believed it was my daughter’s birth right to know the Māori language. She has been in Māori immersion education all her life and can speak it fluently.
When my daughter speaks it fluently it makes me feel more like a New Zealander than anything else in the world.
The Māori language is a treasure and a gift, if you want that gift it will give you a deeper connection to this land than anything else can, but if you don’t want that gift, that’s ok too! It doesn’t mean you are racist or evil or bad, it just means you don’t want that gift.
Virtue signalling Te Reo down people’s throats and weaponising it in the way the Wellington Woke did however made it political ammunition for the Right and that’s why they are attacking it now.
The exact same dynamics of woke dogma are at play in the radioactively toxic Trans debate…
The new government’s plan to remove sexuality and relationship guidelines from schools, introduced in 2020, is facing push back from some educators.
…this is where the woke had taken gender education in schools…
…this is state sponsored and in state schools???
I thought Pride Week at schools was celebrating diversity, I had no idea it had mutated into this????
Drag zoom panels???
I’m fine with this at University, but come on, this is at school!
Look, I support Drag Story Time, hell my own daughter has gone to those, but Drag panels over zoom with school children with really over the top sexuality is bewildering to me.
We have a right to challenge the more flamboyant elements of woke dogma while supporting an individuals right to choose.
The inability to be able to even have the space to discuss these issues rationally and calmly no longer exist in NZ society because in NZ now you can win an argument simply by ‘feeling‘ it more.
Remember the Posie Parker fiasco?
I’m the most liberal human in the world, I fought for equality legislation and marriage in NZ for the Gay Community, I don’t care who you love as long as it is consensual and all power to you living your truth, but I also do have deep misgivings about the way the Trans community have advanced their cause with cancel culture militancy because I think it provides ammunition to the right which ACT and NZF have now returned in spades!
‘Pure Trans Joy’ probably helped cost us the election. Voters didn’t see the Trans Community as the victim, they saw a women literally and metaphorically run out of the town square.
Remember how the woke weaponised Hate Speech which has allowed Winston to make accusations of media bribery…
A new Government was sworn in and the old Winston Peters turned up, accusing the outgoing Government of bribing the media and issuing an indirect edict to state broadcasters to stop using te reo Māori.
…the Woke’s desire to attack Free Speech by demanding Hate Speech laws has generated a media environment where the suspicion is that it attempts to censor and hide than participate and enlighten.
The Wellington Woke middle class activist clique provided the political ammunition that NZ First and ACT have joyfully seized upon and used to fire back at us.
Social Media Proxification has created a political brand that is alienating voters from the Left and we are harvesting the return on that.
This is what happens when pure temple politics kills Broadchurch solidarity.
Cheers Wellington Wokies.
Your self created identity is far more important than our shared humanity.
We are reaping this Hard Right Racist Government because it was more important to virtue signal woke zeal than do anything meaningful for the material well being of New Zealanders.
