If there is ever a real alternative to Facebook where free-speech and equal rights for all prevails… I’m dumping facebook and heading there!
This is just a quick protest blog to highlight a clear case of Prejudice by Facebook whereby I was blocked from Posting, replying/communication for three days all because some Transgender did not like a joke I made on a Mushroom ID page!
For the record my Joke was thus…. On this Mushroom ID Page someone posted a pic of a Puffball and said that when they took the picture it ‘Poofed’ in their face.
They said “I hope the spores are not toxic and asked for an ID.
That is when I joked…. “It’s the deadly ‘Poof Face Fungus’ and that it turns it’s victims transgender!” 🙂
That was it.
The joke was silly… like jokes are yet it is clear that this person went out of their way to complain to facebook to get me ‘punished’… and that says a lot about how these Social Justice Warriors operate.
And FaKebook enables these types… so obviously Facebook has a clear prejudice…. Lefty Liberal AF! no surprise there!
Now my joke contained no profanities, and was getting laughs, yet even when I was about to hit ‘post’ I wondered how long it would be before some Purple Haired ‘Hero’ would complain… yet I hit send anyway… because it was after all just a joke… and it fitted the post… and to my way of thinking *Equal Rights and Liberties* means that we ought to be allowed to tell jokes about Transgenders as much as we tell them about any other demographic… such as jokes about Men, Woman, Bikers, Engineers, etc etc.
*That is what equality is about*
Yet what This Nasty little Queer expects… and what facebook clearly has an agenda for is not equality… But Prejudice in favour of Transgenders… against the rest of us!
Esp against anyone who disagree with the Transgender movement.
What sort of tyrannical world are these types trying to create by outlawing Jokes, humor, satire, ????
Of Course we know its open season on White males!
Many Famous comedians are aware of how dangerous and corrosive this Politically Correct attitude is against a free society.
^ It. I cant use its ‘preferred pronoun’ as who knows what ‘it’ is? You certainly cannot ‘assume their Gender’… so what do you do????
For the record while I do subscribe to the perfectly legitimate school of thought backed up by plenty of psychologists that Transgender-ism is both a Moral and mental health issue, as a Libertarian and christian, I do not hate them or wish them ill… though of course every time they get someone banned/ thrown off Facebook or anywhere else they do their demographic no favours but ferment animosity towards themselves.
I could not respond to my friends posts on important issues.
I could not respond to comments on my own posts.
I could not wish my friends ‘Happy birthday’.
I could not send prayers and positive vibs to sick children!
All because some little puffball could not take a joke!
These types are not satisfied with simply scrolling past… or even starting a debate… or even blocking you from their sight… no… they are hellbent on using any means at their disposal to *F@&# you up!
They want freedom for themselves and their Bigotry but hate Freedom for everyone else who disagrees with them.
And what is scary is that though I understand perfectly that as a private company Facebook has the right to set its own values and rules… that it clearly does not act fairly, or value Free-speech within reasonable Moderation!
It’s scary because Facebook dominates in the Global social media business and so has the ability to seriously handicap any persons internet life should Facebook decide to shut them down.
I investigated their ‘blocking system’ and it stated *There is no way to undo their Block!*… so there is no appeal against injustice!
They threaten you that if you get blocked several times your account may get closed down!
Again I dont have a problem with blatantly abusive and psychotic people being thrown out… yet I do see that The treat hangs over any Libertarian or christian, or anyone who may seek to tell jokes… or create satire about the Political agenda’s and Pet demographics of the Lefty Liberals running facebook.
I wrote a complaint about how I believe I was unjustly targeted by a malevolent political operator and that facebook functioned with prejudice… yet i wont hold my breath about facebook suddenly gaining a conscience and correcting their bias.
If there was some alternative of quality where better judgement by moderators was out there… I would Leave Facebook and go there, and I am sure there are millions of people who would do the same.
Surely there is some Geeks out there who want to get rich and can come up with decent competition to facebook????
Facebooks own behavior is generating an opportunity for competition via it’s unfairness and dissatisfaction.
Facebook is actually enabling Nasty Pettiness to prevail… instead of saying *Harden up Cupcakes*!
And a word of advise… If some purple hair SJW jumps on one of your posts to cry ‘oppression’ immediately go to their profile and hit *Block*.
That way if you are fast enough you have cut them out of your life *before* the dob you into the Gestapo.
If only I had done this myself, I would probably have saved myself from being thrown in FB Jail.
P.S If I disappear off Facebook it is because they have assassinated me.
Update…. The following appeared on my page 8-12-17
Calling Men ‘Scum’ or ‘Trash’ Is Now Hate Speech
“Facebook jailing” over mild insults shows how far “hate speech” policing has creeped—and the folly of actual laws against it
As a Man this does not impress me at all!
Facebook is out of control!
People should be allowed to express their opinions or else facebook becomes some sort of Prison.
This is not moderation… its treating adults like children.
This Is Politically Correct Tyranny.
I dont want to be shielded from hearing what people really think… and anyone who agrees with this cannot complain if they get ‘punished’ for speaking their own mind.
I myself got pinged for a lamo joke I made… If this carries on Facebook will be *only what facebook likes*… it wont be your social network anymore.
Update: 12-11-17… Here is another example that happened on a group I belong to…. After the Admins immediately deleted my post too… I quit the group… Losers.
Tim Wikiriwhi writes….
Hey Guys…. and Admin (Please let this post be discussed).
I would like to talk about a trend that is growing on Facebook, and that I just witnessed happen here on this page.
A person posted an about a famous pornstar and that she had aids… which was probably Fake news and a malicious rumor being spread on the net.
And My comment was that it is nasty to falsely defame people like that.
Next thing I see another member here (who I wont mention ) saying they were going to report the poster and called Admin to remove it.
Now this is becoming an all too common reaction by people to Facebook posts that they disprove of and it is turning facebook into a petty minded hell!
Even though I think the post was not accurate, and probably written by a bigoted hater designed to cause pain, there is no reason to assume the person who posted it here was intentionally part of the smear campaign and it is far more likely they posted it here either because they believed it was interesting (Dark) news or to get other peoples opinion about it.
It was almost immediately erased, even though it had generated an interesting discussion about whether or not people should share such rumors …. and so even though the post itself was dodgy… It added value by the discussion, and in my opinion the post should have been allowed to stand even just for the sake of the Rebuttals that were being added in the comments… and for the value of the discussion.
Yet now all that value has disappeared, and another facebook user has imposed their (Popular) view by force upon another unpopular view/question.
Having witnessed this, I immediately went to the person who called for the admin to jump on this post and Blocked them from reading my stuff, as i have been targeted by such people in the past for expressing view they did not like and I was banned for 3 days… which was a big pain in the arse… and facebook says that if you get too many complaints against you… they will close your page!
Talk about a malicious way to shut down people you disagree with!
So I do not want to run the risk that this same person will try and get my posts deleted, or even try and get me kicked off facebook… so I blocked them… for my own safety…. nor do I wish to associate with such intolerant people.
So at the end of the day This post is a call for people not to be so quick to call in the hounds on others even though you may disagree with what they have posted… If you Facebook to be a cool place where controversial things can be discussed.
If you dont like a Post, or a Joke, etc then you are free to make a critisism, or to simply scroll past… yet for goodness sake refrain from calling for peoples posts to get deleted, or for then to be throw out of a group… or to be ‘Officially’ jailed by facebook.
Think about the sort of person you are… a freedom lover… or a Bigot who only thinks their own opinions ought to be allowed to be discussed?
If freedom Prevails so too is the truth most likely to prevail.
If Censorship prevails and only The Popular Politically Correct views are allowed to stand… that is how Great popular delusions are maintained… progress is halted… and you have created a tyranny.
Below is a blog post I wrote yesterday about my experience of being ‘complained about’ because of a trivial joke I made…
Hero Christian Biker and NRA member Stephen Willeford.
We are a race of fallen beings occupying a world locked in a spiritual battle between Good and evil… this much is certain… and yet just as a person who is born blind cannot know the difference between night and day, so too many people are completely oblivious as to what is *Really going on* …oblivious to what it means to be moral free agents walking upon the Earth living out … and why there is Evil in the world.
Many People look at such evil events as happened in Texas… or having suffered some terrible injustice mistake these things as Proof that there is no such thing as divine justice… no real value or point to human existence or human suffering… and no code by which a person ought to live that may be used to distinguish what is Objectively good from what is evil.
The Darkness and nihilism seeps in.
Some souls… by the Grace of God are not beyond salvation, and though they may wander in darkness for much of their lives eventually they see the light and start to walk towards that light, others may get glimpses of that light… yet because they actually enjoy the darkness… or because they dont think they need the light… purposefully turn their backs.
And still some … because their hearts are filled with contempt and malice…and Ego… Become Evil personified… Monsters whose Evils are on such a scale that sickens all but the hardest of hearts… and blackest of souls.
It all comes down to Choice…. and faith.
This post is not going to expound on that theme to any great depth (I will attach links at the end), yet that opening paragraph had to be said to give context to the Horrific events of Terrorism going on all over the world as we speak, and in particular the Murder of 22+ Christians in a church in Texas by a psychotic Christian hating Atheist out on a personal vendetta… yet this Devil met his Nemesis in the Person of Stephen Willeford… a Christian Biker who rides with the Baptist Church… A man who ran out of his house in bear feet towards the sound of Gun fire while jamming a handful of rounds into the mag of his AR. (ArmaLite Rifle)
Evil Bastard Devin Kelley.
Where was God when all this was happening?…. mocks one of my atheist friends.
God sent one of his Christian soldiers into the nightmare… Stephen… a member of the NRA (an ex instructor)… knew what his Moral Duty was… he did not allow fear or concerns for his own safety be his dominating value, but his love of humanity… and this was an hour his moral weight was being tested… and in an exploit of bravery that is deserving of both Christian and Biker communities highest esteem … and in full accord with both fraternities Codes of conduct, this barefoot Christian Biker engaged the fully armored terrorist mass murderer in a close quarter gunfight and drove him from the scene… and from the testimony of the pursuit that he and another Brave man have retold… it is most likely that One of Stephen’s shots found its mark… The Terrorist crashing and dying a few minutes away from the scene.
Here we see two different world views… two different sets of values at play… One Full of Evil… the other Full of Good… and I feel sorry for anyone whose personal world views blind them to such Patently obvious and objective truths.
Do you think This atheist killer who took pleasure in slaughtering Christians in their place of worship expected to face Divine judgement for his crime?
Boy was he in for an unpleasant surprise!
And this is an important truth to appreciate… No Evil will go unrewarded.
God will judge us all.
Watch the Video interview below… All this is there… yet I wanted to make this Personal tribute to this Hero, and a short rebuttal to my Atheist friend who Mocks God’s existence because of the Evil choices Humans are free to make.
When Evil is at it’s worst… so too do the hero’s…. The best of Humanity ,,, among the most ordinary folk *also* come to the fore….
I must pay tribute to Peggy Lynn Warden
“SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas — Among the horror of the worst church shooting in American history is the story of a woman who made a simple decision.
She would not let the gunman take her grandson.
Peggy Lynn Warden, 56, was among the 26 victims of the massacre at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday. Her brother, Jimmy Stevens, said she used her body to shield her grandson, Zachary Poston, 18, when the gunfire erupted…”
This is what it means to be truly a moral and loving person…living in a spiritual realm where Morality really counts!
Anyone can feign being a good person when the going is easy… its when Evil is afoot that a persons Mettle is truly tested… their values shine forth.
Absolutely Essential principles were clearly demonstrated by these events.
What is needed to halt ‘Evil men with guns’… or rampaging Cars…etc *Is Good men with Guns*… and here we see why an AR is not as it is falsely called ‘An assault rife’ but a valuable too of Defense!
It was his AR that gave him the advantage he needed to drive off this Psycho in full battle dress… Kevlar Body armour and Helmet.. yet who only had a pistol, which though a lethal weapon is far harder to deliver accurate shots esp in the heat of battle.
It is also a testament to the Wisdom and justice of the second amendment right to bear arms… for self defense, as everybody know that the Nutbar Left… and their Political ambitions are to take away guns from law abiding citizens… esp the AR… and we clearly see there that Had not Stephen had both the means of defense and the willingness to risk his own life for others… that most likely more people would have died… and the purp may have even escaped… to rampage elsewhere… before the Police could intervene.
His truck was filled with guns and ammo.
Official reports however say his death was ‘self inflicted’… should we automatically accept this on the word of the Police? These days that is a dubious assumption! And from the preparedness and actions of this Evil Child-killing scumbag it is far more likely he would have tried to shoot it out to the bitter end…going down in a hail of bullets rather than cowardly ending his own life.
I think he was Dead before the cops arrived at the scene.
Johnnie_Langendorff… Drove his truck with Stephen Willeford in high speed pursuit of the killer.
People use Guns everyday in self defense in America yet as this goes against what the lefty media and Liberal agenda attacking the constitutional rights to bear arms these daily events don’t receive anywhere near the sensational and skewed Media reporting as happens when guns are used in mass killings.
Many innocent People are alive today… and many would be killers, rapists, etc are dead because of the Americans right to bear arms for their own defense… yet why is it when you try and communicate this with Sheeple who think guns are evil… all you get is a cross eyed dopey stare and a smirk?
Their anti-gun arguments are quite frankly infantile, on every level… and yet because of the prevailing numerical popularity of their mindset in countries like New Zealand there are Crime waves of armed Robbers robbing Dairies and Gas stations… Liquor store workers get bashed and murdered because the thugs know their victims will be defenseless… have been rendered ‘sitting ducks’… by the legislators… who then carry no remorse or responsibility for the injustice they are party to!
When governments criminalizes the right to self defense, and denies the right to bear the means to do so, good people become the prey of violent criminals… Like lambs to the slaughter…
Apart from the fact that we can attribute the rise of violent crime *directly* to Oppressive Nanny state laws like the war on drugs, alcohol and cigarette Tax hikes, and apart from the fact that the second amendment was written to guarantee that Evil oppressive Governments cannot lawfully dis-arm the people, the truth is when you outlaw guns… they dont just ‘Vanish’ …. you create a society in which *only criminals have guns*.
Thank God Stephen Willeford had an AR!
Ride On Brother!
And Salute to Peggy Lynn Warden… who gave her life for her grandson.
Dont let the haters win… Keep the faith!
New Zealand Biker.
The following is about a Post election exposè by New Zealand First Party candidate Kym E Koloni on her facebook page which expresses her deep disappointment with how she was personally treated by her party and how utterly betrayed she feels by Winston Peters himself.
I will let her speak for herself and make a few comments at the end.
Kym E Koloni
3 hrs ·
For the record …..
When I decided to stand as a candidate for NZ First I knew it was going to be stepping out of my comfort zone.
I value my privacy…and as much as I have a bubbly personality…I enjoy privacy and silent times too.
The sacrifices of putting myself out in the public eye for the sake of my country was carefully considered. But I was up for the journey…believing NZ First policies best represented my views for NZ.
My SPEECH on the 11th Sept changed this journey, and exposed how racially separate our people have become.
Removing ALL race-based policies, including promising a Binding Referendum to remove the Maori Seats was what Winston Peters and NZ First stood for and campaigned on…100%.
Why was I not supported by my party…? Why did Winston dismiss my speech and brutally demean and insult me by saying “What do you expect…that’s why she’s number 38.”
That insulting slamdown was not just to me…it damaged every NZ First candidate from 2 to 56.
How did those at 39 to 56 feel…? Utterly disappointed and demeaned.
I’ve asked the party to please point out what part of my speech was NOT our policy, and if policy had changed please inform me WHEN…and inform me when the candidates were informed.
That was 13th September. No response, no reply…silence.
Oh but the party gagged me in the meantime.
Apparently my comments were inappropriate in tone, misrepresented NZ First policy, caused significant damage to the campaign position and caused concern, indeed distress, to other candidates and members of the party.
My Northcote committee said I was arrogant and selfish, and I had jettisoned any hope of a political career.
I was told to remove the link to my speech from my Facebook page.
It was even suggested I remove my whole Facebook presence.
I was then told:
1. Not to make any media statements whatsoever, or respond to any media query.
2. Not to make any social comment on any NZ First issue.
3. Not to attend any public meeting or gathering related to the election campaign on behalf of NZ First.
4. Not to undertake any campaign activity on behalf of NZ First for the remainder of the campaign.
Effectively, they gagged me and the only option I had left was to continue campaigning independently of the party. My name was already on the ballot papers as the NZ First candidate for Northcote.I still believed I had represented our policies in everything I said in my speech.
I was still waiting for a response to my questions.
To date they have NEVER responded.
Thankfully, my faith in real NZers like me was restored.
The groundswell support I received publicly and privately was absolutely INCREDIBLE.
I needed it…thank you. ?
I suddenly had people around me who had my back.
I had eyes and ears who kept me informed and a step ahead of things happening…thank you.
My speech was being misreported over the media…but I was gagged from responding to correct it.
I was particularly disturbed to be alerted to a Head Hunter’s Facebook page with a link to my speech and my face plastered over the page….”This piece of shit needs to be executed “…share this bruthas. Yes, I kid you not.
The very content of my speech wanting UNITY and one law for all…and wanting ALL New Zealanders to be treated equally, was ironically exposing the very real racial separatism I was speaking against.
So there were bully’s to endure from within NZ First, the party I was representing.
There were bully’s from Maori radicals, including gangs.
I learned how to BLOCK….a skill I had no need to know before.
BUT, I am now being disowned by the party…they want my membership revoked….they want me gone.
So for the record….this has certainly been a life-changing journey…not quite the way I had envisioned.
After reading Kyms post I was Angry.
Angry for Kym given she had stood up bravely for the Principle of racial Equality before the law yet had been utterly betrayed and marginalised by Winston Peters.
I was angry that this insider information served to confirm the view that Winston Peters had swindled voters like myself who gave NZ First our vote on the understand that should he hold the balance of power after the election, that he would secure a referendum on the issue of New Zealand’s race based Apartheid Electoral system.
This was a policy that Winston was most vocal about leading up to the election , and one that I personally held to be the most pressing issue facing our Nation today!
And it was this policy that stirred myself and many others into throwing our support behind Winston Peters and New Zealand First despite our many reservations based upon his seriously checkered past.
My reply to Kyms post was… “Had I known all this before election day I would have immediately changed my mind about giving Winston first my vote and would have raised the alarm!”
Many People who voted for Winston feel the same way, yet of course Kym could not say any of this *before the election* being duty bound not to scuttle her own party… despite the treatment she received.
She did however work to the best of her ability to get supporters to put pressure on Winston Peters to stay the course… and not Reneg on his promises.
There was much that she saw from within the party that was shocking… and raised serious alarm bells… yet she could not communicate this to the general public.
We do not hold Kym at all responsible for Winston Peters Machiavellianism.
The Sad reality was at the time leading up to Vote Day, we supporters were left to our own imaginations… Can we Trust Winston?… are we being taken for a ride?
None the less many of us were committed to trying to get the referendum… the legitimacy of these not being something I readily accent to… yet given the circumstances was at least a shot at New Zealanders voicing their desire for reform.
Her Post-election Facebook exposè (above) made concrete what many of us suspected had happened … yet had no way of knowing for sure during the election campaign period … there were ominous signs yet we were always hoping we were going to get a referendum on this absolutely vital problem… while weathering a storm of slander by our more skeptical friends…. who all claimed to ‘Know with certainty’ that we were Fools to trust Winston Peters.
We were prepared to walk through this gauntlet for the sake of the cause to end New Zealand’s shameful Apartheid system.
I knew that there was at least a 50%… even a 60% chance they would prove to be correct as I myself had spent over a decade arguing that Winston Peters was a dishonest Rouge … in fact there would hardly be anyone who has been more vocal on this issue than myself… yet I also knew that these people could no more predict the future than I can… or Read minds better than I… and that if we voters wanted to get the referendum we could not falter on rallying as many votes as we could for NZ first… yet all the while being active in notifying NZ First and Winston Peters that the only reason we were voting for him was for the sake of the referendum.
I did have to pinch myself often… and reaffirm to my self my premises for maintaining my support.
I was one of many who actively conveyed this message… tagging in Winston Peters to every post, saying he must not falter… and encouraging everyone else to do the same…. yet I only once received a second hand ‘thank you’ from a third party… the silence was deafening from Winston.
And after he failed to support Kym on her brave speech… instead he publicly derided her in spite of her speech being received by us and with Joy… and being itself in full accord with Winston’s own speeches in recent times on this Vital issue… not surprisingly support for NZ First started to falter.
For all Winston Peters vast experience in Politics it is staggering to appreciate just how foolish and self-defeating his treatment of Kym was in the media!
If only he had doubled down and fully supported Kym in her stance and had encouraged *all of the 50+ NZ First candidates* to do the same… it is very reasonable to speculate that the ensuing sensation would have delivered at least twice the number of Votes for NZ First!
Just look at the impact and publicity Kyms single speech garnered!
Winston’s duplicity shot himself and his party in the foot and left all the candidates wondering what the hell they were supposed to say!
When the low life media pounced on Kim’s speech, Big Bad Winston crumbled like an amateur!
Instead of praising and supporting her… he threw her under his Big shiny Bus!
Looking back we can now say that even at this early stage…Winston’s retreat against the Brownmail and the PC Media had begun!
When I saw this at the time, as someone who was committed to voting for NZ first on this policy alone of course it disturbed me… of course it made me begin to doubt Winston’s sincerity on this matter… yet again being only left to my thoughts… I was wondering how much weight I could really place on this sad failure of Winston.
It was easy for me to make excuses in that Winston was touring the country at the time… and was clearly tired… impossible to communicate with… as he was the man of the hour.
Despite the so-called ‘Jacinda affect’… or because of it, the number-crunchers were predicting that Winston would hold the balance of power and so be the ‘King maker’ come coalition talk time.
This fact in itself was enough for people like me committed to the cause of ending apartheid to put aside our doubts… ignore the naysayers… and stay the course… as by doing the math there was every indication that Winston would indeed be in the perfect position after the election to fulfill his election promises to us in regards to the Referendum… despite Labour categorically stating they would not support a referendum , and National making similar noises… yet not so emphatically.
And when The election was over and all the special votes were tallied… Winston had not received as many votes as he had hoped for… yet was still the most powerful man in the country given he would decide of the two Obese parties who would govern.
From a policy point of view, and given that the Maori party had been wiped out, I expected Winston to be easily able to negotiate the referendum as part of a coalition with National… though I appreciated that it was all dependent on what Winston’s true ambitions were, and what National and Labour each put on the table.
Yet all the talks were done in secret… and we the public have not been informed about any of it… even after the decision was made… and this is a travesty!
We the people deserve to know what the hell was going on!
Why the secrets now?
Winston’s duplicity came to the fore!
Straight after the election he started making noises that indicated he was about to do the dirty on us… excuses such as “A Referendum on the Maori Seats is not so important now the Maori and Mana parties have been eliminated…” to paraphrase.
This is an absolute Joke!
The Racist seats are still there… still occupied by Racists… and still perverting our government into making racist Laws and favours!
What more Winston decided he was going to get into bed with the very Party that now occupies those apartheid seats!
I now suspect Winston Peters did not even bother himself trying to negotiate for the referendum… did not play hardball on behalf of those who voted for him specifically on this policy and to whom he was morally obliged to champion in honoring his campaign promises… even though we had delivered to him the supreme power to make Ultimatums!
I have several times tried to get Winston Peters to at least explain why he was not able to swing the deal… and why he went with Labour… yet we only get silence.
Apparently Winston does not communicate with the little people.
I even suspect he was intending to go Labour very early on and knew he would not be fighting for the referendum once Labour announced they would not agree to it… yet of course he dishonestly carried on letting us believe that he was going into post election negotiations… “not for Baubles of Office… but for what was for the good of the country”.
He sold us out for what was his *real goals*.
And he and his mates have again taken the Baubles of Office… over what was in our Nations best interests!
And now I must even bear my Wife’s derision for giving Winston my support… she… like many of my friends tells me she ‘Knew’ all this would come to pass.
This would have to be one of the lowest Political low points for me… yet despite being made a fool of… when I look back at how I ended up here… I still see a clear rationale… and I still believe that I voted upon Principle.
A worthy Principle.
And that as voters… we who voted for NZ First on the basis of Ending Treaty separatism did everything within our power to see that principle prevail, yet that is the limit of our strength… and the limit of our responsibility.
The Failure squarely rests upon Winston Peters, and National, and Labour… *and the voters who voted for them*.
I voted for The principle of One law for all, and New Zealand first because of people like Kym Koloni who have now joined a most heroic club… those brave souls whom have suffered threats to their safety because they have challenged Racist Laws and institutions.
Nobody else was prepared to stand up…. certainly not David Seymour and Act.
For people like me New Zealand First was the only hope.
And this was also the opinion of the lobby Group ‘Hobson’s Pledge’ . .. though not specifically endorsed… you can see this from their posts and from some of their reasoning’s why they believed we should stay the course even when Winston was making comments that raised concerns.
Despite having vocally condemning Winston for years esp his underhanded grab of the baubles of Office in 2005, I was prepared to show grace… and to give Winston one last shot at personal redemption… which is something I personally believe in… only to have my olive branch trampled underfoot by a charlatan of such a grand scale that despite all my reasoning and excuses in this blog… I still question my own intelligence for being sucked in so badly!
Given that I never stood myself for election due to financial troubles with the IRD, I am in a quandary as to how I could have acted more wisely, and will have to bear the ignominy of having cast a vote for the Used car salesman… the very poster-child of a dirty scheming modern politician… a Lawyer none the less!… for the rest of my life.
Satan laughing spreads his wings.
Though Winston was King Maker and he now has many baubles of Office…the election for New Zealand First was actually a failure generated by a fiasco of Party chaos and mis-management and confusion.
Though Winston had managed to con more than twice as many candidates to stand for him this election, because of the incompetence of Winston’s team leadership and the uncertainty he generated during the campain, they ended up with Far less votes than the previous election and Less seats in Parliament!
Many of MPs lost their jobs and are wondering ‘what the hell happened?’
I guarantee they will be given some lame excuse… if any… like ‘The Jacinda effect’
As a homeless Libertarian I knew that after the election either National or Labour would be in the driver’s seat, a very depressing thought… for me that is like …do I prefer to be trodden underfoot by a Left Boot… or a right one?
Neither is at all appealing or preferable… and so morally speaking this situation was virtually neutral as far as my personal culpability goes as a voter…should Winston choose of go left or right… yet like I said… I did expect him to go with National… even though I think they suck … and one perverted part of me enjoys hearing all the National Party supporters squeeling like stuck pigs because Winston did not choose National!
All their decrying of MMP because they still cant get it trough their thick Meat heads that just because National got more than Labour… they did not get enough to win!
I am shocked that Jacinda Ardern is now our PM…. I think it’s ridiculous… I think Labour is ridiculous… yet I also think National is an absolute joke too!
The Idea that Bill was ‘A steady hand’ on the economy is such a delusion that beggars belief!
His Party borrowed and spent more than any other government in the history of our Nation and leaves office with our Nation Buried in debt!
Though I expect many foolish policies from this Labour Led coalition I also have hope of some good stuff… one very important law reform is far closer now with the sacking of Bill English… and that is Cannabis Law reform … something that despite the howls of all the nasty prohibitionists will deliver massively on Social Justice and Law and Order.
I am happy that there will be an attempt to recover the Dead of Pike river and investigate this Cover up.
I am also Happy that Ron Mark is Minister of Defense and that there is good reason to think the 10:80 Program… dumping toxins by the hundreds of tonnes … and the cruel deaths it inflicts will also end.
I Visited Kym yesterday and we had a great talk (hence the photo).
We discussed things in confidence I am not a liberty to mention here, yet I suggest people pay attention to her facebook page.
I dont agree with everything Kym expounds yet certainly with a great deal.
She is a Christian and an exceptionally Brave woman who stood up for what was right… Ending Racist Laws and establishing One Law for all.
Cheers for that Kym!
Irrespective of what fate holds for you with regards to New Zealand first, I certainly hope this will not be the end of your activism to end Waitangi apartheid.
I hope we can work together for the sake of justice and all the people of New Zealand.
Any Kiwi interested in fighting Waitangi apartheid should sign up at Hobson’s pledge and become active supporters.
Christian Libertarian Independent.
Activist for Ending Treaty separatism, and the establishment of Racial equality before the Law.
Here is something from Whale Oil Blog that sums things up… “Winston made the most of those poll results and promised the nation an end to the festering apartheid problem embedded within our law and administration, Winston did this by promising his “Bottom line policy”, that he would require a “Full public referendum” on the retention of the Maori seats, NO conditions were attached or made public, just an unconditional public promise of a referendum.
Many frustrated voters looked past all Winston’s obvious faults and their concerns over other NZ First leftish Policy, to see a major reversal of the obnoxious evil of apartheid, and gave a party vote for Winston, based primarily on that one restorative policy.
Those trusting voters were DUPED, they were lied to, Winston seized his own power, by sacrificing the one policy that gave him his voting numbers and put him in that position of power.
Update: 11-8-17… The magnitude of Winston Peters deception is becoming more apparent by the day!
That he has filed legal proceedings against National party MPs The day before the election proves positively that the entire negotiations with National and Labour were one gigantic scam and yet again we have the evidence that Winston put his own interests ahead of the Good of the Country.
There never was any hope of Winston negotiating for the Referendum with National!
He had already decided he was going to use the position we gave him for his own selfish ends!
If you ever wondered why Winston Peters decided to get into bed with Labour after the election and if you were ever in any doubt, you only have to have a squizz at the papers filed with the Auckland High Court fingering those who the New Zealand First leader thought were responsible for the leak of his pension overpayment.
They were filed the day before the election and named all the National Party suspects, including the then Prime Minister Bill English, along with his Deputy Paula Bennett and the campaign manager Steven Joyce.
It was just over a week later that the same three Nats filed into the coalition casino with the gambler Peters, who unknown to them, or anybody else for that matter, had already laid his cards on the table.
The dealing had been done. Like all good gamblers, Peters kept a stony face, letting them believe they were still in the game whereas in reality they’d been dealt out when the court papers were filed against them. The notion that he could now be sitting at the same Cabinet table with them is beyond comprehension.
