Dear Left Wing NZ – this horrific hard right Government is on us!

Let me be as clear as I can be to my fellow comrades of the Left, if we allow woke activists and woke politicians to drag us into a culture war, we on the left will lose the next election!

Consider the insane culture war revenge fantasies masquerading as social policy and the venal self interested donor class getting their economic policy:

  • Denigrating anti-Māori agenda
  • Attacks on worker rights
  • Attacks on renter rights
  • Slashing public services to afford a $2.9billion tax break for rich landlords
  • Borrowing for tax cuts
  • Slashing $90-$300million in Māori funding
  • Slashing $3billion from climate change funds
  • Promising cancer patients money for their drugs then reneging on it
  • Race war generating Treaty principles referendum
  • Eliminating Māori representation at local council level
  • Fast Track Powers that will desecrate environment
  • Allowing Gas and Oil exploration
  • Building a mega prison
  • Draconian war on crime powers
  • Getting NZ involved in a new American war
  • Allowing News media to die so there is less accountability
  • Attacking beneficiaries
  • Throwing 50 000 off welfare
  • Attacking the disability sector

TDB warned you that a National/NZF/ACT Government would combine to create a platform of malice and spite, and part of the problem was the Left’s total capitulation to woke dogma and identity politics over Broadchurch solidarity.

One stat from the latest Roy Morgan Poll stood out, the steep political divide between men and women…

‘On an overall basis, men heavily favour the National/ ACT/ NZ First coalition government on 60%, almost double the opposition Labour/ Greens/ Maori Party on only 33.5% – a gap of 26.5% points.’

…middle class woke dogma has driven male voters away from the Left, if the left want to win the next election, pure temple politics has to be put aside for common ground broad church.

I argued that last years election was a grudge fuck against Labour by a bitter post Covid electorate angry that Jacinda had the temerity to save 20 000 lives and voters elected this hard right racist climate denying beneficiary bashing Government without appreciating the extremist agenda and after 100 days of romper stomper culture war revenge fantasies masquerading as social policy we will see the middle voter collapse and flee the right – and lo and behold this poll spells all that out!

The manner in which social media school chambers have radicalised voters into Qanon militia speaks to a deeper wound and is reminiscent of the way global Muslim youth were radicalised in the 1990s and 2000s thanks to online Jihadist recruitment videos.

Citizens should feel angry and cynical at a system that is rigged in favour of the rich!

That shouldn’t shock or surprise us, that is the reality!

The danger now is the extremism that social media hate algorithms has manufactured.

Let me be as clear as I can be to my fellow comrades of the Left, if we allow woke activists and woke politicians to drag us into a culture war, we on the left will lose the next election!

Social media algorithms have allowed for a toxicity of debate that is easily manipulated. A symphony of sweaty truths all screaming for attention and no one listening. Woke Identity Politics activists have seized the joy of having no gatekeepers to express how much they hate white men while alt right Incel Nazi’s have seized upon the joy of having no gatekeepers to express how much they hate everyone else.

Millennial woke culture sees macro violence coming from micro aggressions and piously police those micro aggressions with virtue signalling purity mantras.

Alt Right Incel Nazis see white persecution and create some bullshit replacement narrative to justify their powerlessness and feed that resentment online.

Most people are on social media and most people have a woke activist or Qanon fanatic in their social media feed screaming their feverish truths. While these activists certainly think they are speaking truth to power by endlessly calling people out for breaches of woke mantra or fake news anti Trump lies, to everyone else they are simply toxic.

People stop seeing the political party and only see the activist and in the end proxification means the activist becomes the proxy representation of the Party, and seeing as people have negative feelings towards the proxy, they turn from the Party.

Voters aren’t voting on policy, they are voting on who made them feel resentful on social media!

The political is the personal now means what hurts me personally becomes political.

Before social media activists could only face each other off at protests or through letters to the editor or talkback radio. There were constraints of interaction but with social media there are none and it turns out the freedom to insult and dehumanise others is more addictive than nicotine, alcohol and meth combined.

Wokeness has become a puritanical religion with none of the beauty – it’s not so much the personal virtue signal, we are all dicks at times, it’s the weaponization by algorithms that make it so dangerous and damaging.

The danger of identity politics is that it locks people intellectually into only defining the world through their skin colour, genitalia or sexual orientation – it also becomes toxically subjective and tribal where the only solidarity is with other people who share the skin colour or genitalia or sexual orientation- without shared truths and values, the 1% and their 9% enablers continue to divide the rest of us 90%.

If the Left can’t find universal policy that everyone can rally around, the culture war ammunition our mild class woke activists hand to the Right will continue to win for them.

The polarised fringes made insane by social media hate algorithms will still support NZF and ACT but it is the middle voter in National who will feel tainted by being associated with these lunatics who will be feeling ready barely 6 months after the election to vote Labour.

The economy is on the slide, the OCR will go up not down and geopolitical shockwaves are on their way.

Unemployment is predicted to hit 5%.

I think it will hit 6.5%.

National don’t have $280m for cancer patients they promised to fund but they do have $2.9b for landlords!

Beneficiaries and working class people care less about pronouns and the correct pronunciation of te Reo than they do about how to pay next weeks rent and power bill!

Pure temple doctrine divides & alienates. Broadchurch universals build solidarity.

I’m not interested in social justice wokedom any more, it is a minefield of competing schisms throwing vitriol at one another.

Twitter outrage is woke righteousness porn for the middle classes. A puritanical razoring where the self elected morality police publicly shame and cancel anyone for not using the language protocols of the conclave.

I am interested in Economic Justice and the immediate welfare of the poorest amongst us while providing immediate life condition upgrades.

Media proxification is leading to a fascist kaleidoscope of climate crisis entropy triggered by Covid, woke supremacy & ok Karen QAnon echo chambers.

Comrades – Your enemy isn’t a woman who says stupid shit about Trans people in a public park, your enemy are the Banks, Oil Companies, Billionaires and Property Speculators who continue to pillage this country while we are bickering over the narcissism of petty difference!

  1. Luxon says he will address Chinas human right when he meets the leaders there .He needs to look in the mirror and address the same issues he is pursuing right here and now .He is on a mission to oppress 20% of the population ,useing ACT and NZ FIRST to drive that oppression .That is his sole motivation for allowing them into coalition in the first place .He can say it was them not us once the NZ population finally catches on which is slowly happening .As the young girl in the tv add says slow to catch on around here .

  2. Dear Left Wing NZ,
    You need to find an actually Left Wing party that cares (and will actually deliver real improvements to every day Kiwis, not just empty promises & hot air). Labour, as it is, will lose the next election, and then you’ll have an ACT/ National government. Sorry, but that’s the way it is. Don’t accept it, you deserve better.

    • And this why we’re so fucked as a nation. I’d never heard of them before but when I read the article I was hugely impressed by what they’d done. Did you actually read the article? The risks those two young brothers took: sleeping under a table as the same plastic extrusion machine they’d bought with a $20,000 loan from their parents. Heading to China at the age of 18 not knowing the language or even anything about running a business.

      We need another hundred like them, but we’re not going to get that with tens of thousands of nasty, embittered little Lefties like you lot here, all squeaking about BS ideas like “trickle down” and looking only to tax the shit out of them.

  3. How do you not avoid skin color in politics when we have a political party named TPM? Even if this wasn’t the case Maori would still be targeted as a political punching bag because of the historic nature of how this country exist today.

  4. What Left? The neoliberal Labour government imported a fuck-tonne of NACT voters. Labour unlikely to return to power. Ever.

  5. The ACT right wing attitude is: We are deserving , we did it! We have cornered the housing market . We’ve got the cash hidden away in tax free havens and trusts. The workers are drones to support us on a minimal wage. They are all losers anyway! Their loss elevates us as THE winners! Listen to Paul aren’t I just fantastic Henry. Don’t throw up! The Neoliberal fantasy put us in the shit… But we have Paul henry! 🙁 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KloEyO5TYjw&t=963s

  6. The male/female poll is meaningless because what is a woman?
    Until the left recognizes actual reality they are going nowhere in this country.
    The list of green MPs with actual mental disorders is ridiculous.

    • The left don’t need to go anywhere, this coalition government is fucking things up so badly( and your right wing view of Labour, was that they were bad) the left will win by default.

        • Wrong Helen, completely wrong, National are destroying the very fabric of our once great country. You are very selective in your right wing thinking and the arrogance on display only reinforces the demise of this horrid government. They have split our country and it won’t be mended until we have a government that is socially inclusive. This will be 2026 if not before.

          • Squeaky, can you honestly say Labour is the best it could be and New Zealand is quantitatively better for the 6 year of their rule? Really? If you could, we wouldn’t be having this discussion because they would still be the Government. It’s time to open your eyes and make Labour better, it’s what New Zealand needs. Wake the f up!

    • You have a mental disorder. You think a dead Palestinian carpenter sits in the same room with you, and his father lives on a cloud on the sky. Because of that, you think that people should be told who they can and cannot sleep with, and what they should wear.

    • So which way did National vote in terms of transgender issues? NZ First are the only dipshits who tried to make that topic an issue of substance. All the problems we face it as a country and you think that’s up there?

  7. ” Comrades – Your enemy isn’t a woman who says stupid shit about Trans people in a public park, your enemy are the Banks, Oil Companies, Billionaires and Property Speculators who continue to pillage this country while we are bickering over the narcissism of petty difference! ”

    The perfect distraction and diversion Bomber.

  8. Yes, it is on us and this because we are being led up the garden path, yet we still follow anyway. With information comes knowledge comes change – we clearly need to be better informed!

  9. ” ….pillage this country….”
    We only have agriculture as a pillage-able primary industry so do you in fact mean ” …pillage our farmers…” then? But you never mention that particular angle. Why is that? Could it be “the Banks, Oil Companies, Billionaires and Property Speculators” are getting desperate to keep a lid on their lies and manipulations? The Banks, Oil Companies, Billionaires and Property Speculators aren’t going to go quietly y’know but they can’t make a fuss either or they’ll attract attention in these very, very attention seeking times.
    There’s no other profession in AO/NZ more suited to environmentally holistic and communally socialist cohesiveness than farming. That’s why most farming endeavours were, and almost certainly still are, *family affairs. Money grifted from between the farm gate and the consumer built Auckland and indeed the whole of funny little AO/NZ and yet in reportage of, and in the service of farmers and their farming professions they’re completely left out of all pictures. Unless, of course they’re going to be tactically belittled and humiliated for their siding with their own worst enemies, the fucking natzo’s. Why is that? Anyone would think there are secrets to be kept secret. Are there are fortunes in private pockets which must go unnoticed?
    * Dairying, or cowsploitation as I call it IS NOT farming. That would be like referring your hair dresser as an ENT surgeon.

    • agriculture used to be 60% of gdp now it is 10% and will fall further due to returning to selling bulk cheap commodities .Farmers are also carrying way to much debt to the value of the business .Dairy payout has been around $8 for the last 15 years yet farm prices remain over the top .

  10. CTU is holding meetings around NZ for delegates and members to discuss policy we want out of the political left. This must be applauded as Labour specifically needs to be held accountable. Firstly the leadership must change. Nine months and Hipkins did nothing with a 20 seat majority. Core union values need to be demanded like the right to strike, multi-employer bargaining and the need to conclude bargaining. FPA without the bureaucratic rubbish would also help those at the bottom of the earnings scale.
    It seems to me that the Labour party is blaming a poor campaign but the truth is they did no transformative changes to child poverty, housing, health system and poor education stats.
    This bastard government no has free licence to screw over Maori, the poor and reward the rich. We need to fight back now.

    • Ken Young – So if not Labour – then who? I whole heartily agree Labour dropped the ball. Labour is counting on this.

      • Technically it has to be Labour, only Labour has to remember what it is supposed to stand for, and actually deliver. Only Labour has enough presence, any other party won’t get the votes needed or will need a number of election cycles to grow & gain a reasonable following (which is hard & never guaranteed).

  11. Luxon thinks he will be telling China how to look after their human rights .How can he do that when he is trying to fuck over 20% of the population .Then he wants to suck up to dictator Modi so he can gain more skills in how to do that to us .

  12. It’s a pity that the only political party with any seats in Parliament with a patriotic anti-globalist and economically socialist vision is the Maori party, given the ease of with which the regime media can represent its policies as opposed to the interests of non-Maori New Zealanders. Labour and the Greens should look at coopting the Maori party’s very sensible economic and foreign policy stands- instead of what they do, which is promote neoliberalism + bizarre social innovations not seen outside Weimar Germany.

    • Must agree with you there .If kiwis were not so racist they would have elected a Maori party led government .Their tax policy was by far the best yet bugger all would have bothered to even cast an eye over it .

      • Firstly it is the TPM that is racist and the fact they wanted to destroy the simplicity of GST by removing it off certain items shows they have no perception of business costs.They did have some good ideas about personnal tax that has merit.
        .Their overseas policy would have us with no friends to call on when needed

        • what do you need from those war monger so called friends who really only want our people to fight the wars they start .Humanity is destroying its self faster than you think and your so called freinds lead the way .

        • Yeah nah, right wing white parties are racist. TPM have never had issues until this fruit loop coalition came together. Evidence of this is Maori marching in unity in the streets. Now the environmentalists are protesting in the streets.
          Funny your first though was cost to business not to people’s lives and social ills. Sums you up, no need to say more.

      • I don’t think we can avoid discussing the elephant in the room, the extreme anti-human propaganda spread from all regime media outfits from RNZ to the NZ Herald to that ‘spinoff’ blog site. They all oppose socialism, they all oppose foreign policy patriotism, they all support zionist genocidaires.

    • If you get the pendulum swinging hard enough it will meet at the top – fuck all this middling nonsense taking us nowhere. The individual and the collective are the same thing, yet we are convinced by stagnating the pendulum in the middle they are opposites and radical. What’s radical is pulling on the pendulum from both sides like a tug of war and expecting the clock to tick – captured by ourselves – future humans will scratch their heads and go, what the fuck were they doing? all drunk on fossil fuels.

  13. FFS, aside from pointing out the obvious in regard to this government’s well signaled intentions and current agenda, the bulk of this seems to be lambasting social media and algorithms.
    What exactly are you suggesting the left does?
    Avoid using social media?
    You’re joking! You might as well try to stop the tide coming in! Get real, and stop trying to emulated Cnut.
    In many a previous post, you’ve articulated admirably the dozen or so planks the left need to continuously publish. All the left needs to do, is continue this line of attack. Each time the government adds another nail in its coffin, re-emphasise our message, and above all, re-emphasise the difference and whom our policies would benefit.
    It’s only by showing consistency, that the left will bring an early end to the coalition of chaos.
    If our policies, as have been articulated, are affordable, and attack proof, they’ll withstand any scrutiny and BS counter-arguments. If they aren’t, they’ll fail – deservedly.
    So rather than tilt at windmills, let’s all of us organise and start the campaign. We have a bloody government to win back.

  14. Why is up to the left wing? How about centre or just basically not ‘total wanker’ folk? This government is a f’ing embarrassment. We have gone from spineless Labour to ideological shit that will take us backwards. A bunch of lying idiots with a few openly corrupt thrown in. Look at Seymour. His actual aspiration is to appeal to 15% of voters. That’s like admitting you are a complete c word. Sure it’s not a popularity contest but we all know he doesn’t give a shit about the majority of NZers

    • what do you need from those war monger so called friends who really only want our people to fight the wars they start .Humanity is destroying its self faster than you think and your so called freinds lead the way .

    • Seymour fails to understand he will not grow his vote because the number of rich pricks is getting smaller as they are now trying to rip off each other as the number of people in poverty grows the number of rich decreases .So his current level is where he will remain untill those few wake up and realise he can actually do fuck all for them

    • It’s up to the Left, because everyone else is happy as long as house prices keep going up, the crims go to jail & the beggars don’t get in the way when you go shopping. If you want a better society, only the left can do & you need a better Labour Party to make it happen. Time to wake up.

  15. Nathan a workers party like the George Galloway has created in England less his right wing social conservative values. Will be interesting to see how Jermey Corban goes.
    Failing that a Greens/Te Pati Māori coalition that dictates to Labour. We cant keep accepting the neo liberal crap Labour throws up.

  16. https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/519385/one-man-s-reality-of-being-homeless-in-wellington
    James:
    “I’ve been offered housing dozens of times over the course of my life, and I’ve never taken it,” he said.
    “A lot of people won’t, or they will, but because we have no real life skills – paying bills, cleaning up, cooking – you end up getting kicked out after three months anyway.
    “It’s like a vicious cycle.”
    James said having a room, or a house, could also bring trouble.
    “Other homeless people find out about it, and then all of a sudden, you’ve got 10 people in your house getting high, getting wasted, and it gets trashed, and you’re the one responsible for the bills.”

    In summer, James sleeps in the CBD or on the waterfront. In winter, he sleeps in car park buildings.
    James chooses to sleep in car park buildings instead of vacant buildings, like Pringle House or the Amora Hotel on Wakefield Street, because they have security cameras.
    “They’re not watched all the time, but if anything was to happen to me, there’ll be some accountability for that.”…

    Real life problems for real life people trying to simply live in a simple way. And some hints if you become homeless and hopeless and just have to look after yourself in the hellfare state of NZ. Take note because after THEY have cleaned you out that is all you will have left, your survival note. And the problems won’t be solved by just providing housing. And it has to be, if provided, suitable for the person using it.

    It has to be accepted that some need to have white-washed concrete buildings with concreted interior walls and slightly sloping floors so they can be hosed out. No glass in the windows, shutters for night and bad weather, and insect screens for the day. There needs to be a central office with amenities, and secure lockers with cameras so that the useful needed possessions or even the remainder left from a better past life can be secure and available when they have to move on.

    People aren’t just leaves blowin’ in the wind, but could in some cases seem more like snails carrying all their possessions with them, along with memories and survival instinct. A bit of pleasure, game of cards, a couple of beers sometimes would be good, and being able to smoke somewhere – allowed by a reasonable society not a bunch off stiff-necked puritans and prosy preachers. What are we saving ourselves for? If they get emphysema it just takes them earlier than some other unpleasant degenerative illness.

    Expected to do some organised community work, pulled out in emergencies for some basic but useful job; expected to do something at least once a year and possibly build up to once a week, would be good and end up good for all concerned.

  17. why are the left so bitter and full of envy?
    why do the left only look at one side of the equation and blame that?…
    you blame the rich for being rich then want to tax them cuz envy n feels to pay for dumb stuff like free public transport and skanks to sit at home on the dole breeding delinquents.
    have you lot ever once stopped for a minute and realised youre the ones that made them wealthy?
    you did so very willingly, you all by iphones etc to make apple billions, you bought cheap plastic toys for kids and made zuru/mowbrays billions aswell.
    YOU HANDED YOUR MONEY OVER THROUGH YOUR OWN CHOICES and then have the audacity to get upset they have money and you dont.

    politics of envy is a path to ruin, we should be lowering taxes not wanting more (and not lowering them like the pitiful nats tax cuts).
    NZ is teetering on ruin, if the left get back in power then this country is toast and will nevrr recover… i have my doubts if we can recover now
