Jihad Vs McLanguage in Maori language week

By   /  September 13, 2018  /  Curwen Rolinson, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  7 Comments

Over the past year or two, I’ve endeavoured to popularize the concept of “Jihad Vs McWorld”. If you want a really tangible demonstration of “McWorld” in action, look no further than the McDonalds workplace policy brought to light by Newshub this evening – wherein Maori staff responding to Maori customers attempting to place an order in Te Reo Maori, was firmly clamped down upon by McDonalds’ management, on grounds that “English is our McLanguage” .

Zionism’s attempt at new world order

By   /  September 11, 2018  /  Leslie Bravery, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  3 Comments

What should have been big news here, had the culprit been any state other than Israel, whose brutal acts of piracy in international waters, along with the tasering and throwing into prison of a New Zealand national, besides his being robbed of private property, hardly attracted any NZ news media interest.

As every major global crisis of capitalism has proven, capitalists must destroy the previous generation of sunk capital to revive profits and restore accumulation of wealth in their own pockets.

Trump’s Space Force, Putin awe and trade wars with China, Iran, Turkey & Venezuela – how Donald is dismantling the entire global order

By   /  August 14, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  10 Comments

In the constant twitter blitzkrieg from Trump, through the oceans of toxic  politics and the ever growing war against the truth, we would be forgiven if we were somehow lulled into a state of shocked passive apathy that at least Donald as a vengeful chaos actor isn’t here to stay, that his permanence on reality is an unfortunate experiment that has accidentally happened and there is no reason to his madness.

While s61 of the Human Rights Act makes it unlawful to “excite hostility against or bring into contempt” racial/ethnic groups in a variety of contexts … I am unaware of any parallel and corresponding prohibition on doing likewise against religious groups or adherents on a similar basis.
