Let me state this from the get go… some of you won’t like what I’m about to say… tuff titties!
I won’t pander to defeatist cowards who don’t have the Balls to stand behind the Brave Freedom Heroes who have put themselves in the fight.
Lets be clear about this…. If you vote for any of the parties that supported Vax mandates and lockdowns (including Act, and NZ First), you will no longer have the right to complain about these evils.
*You* are the problem if you intend to support these evil F237$!
Vote for one of the new parties who are expressly for your rights or shut TF up!
The only way you can maintain your integrity and maintain any claim to be part of the Resistance to the Woke Covid Climate change Globalist’s is if you vote for one of The New Small Freedom parties… Not National. Not Act. Not NZ First.
The most common gripe I hear as to why many people think voting for one of the small New Freedom parties is ‘a waste of your vote’ is because they don’t think any of them will get past the 5% threshold to get people into parliament.
This is Bogus! Not only is it a self-fulfilling/ self-defeatist stupidity… in reality it does not matter if a party gets 5% to still be a valuable vote!
It sure would be nice to get straight into parliament, but The truth is they only need 3-4% to remain a viable fighting force after the election and set them in good stead for growing to cross the line *next election*.
This is a long term game.
Not to appreciate this is plain Naïve.
It takes a monumental amount of work and effort to build credibility and get a party across the line. These parties are only at first base.
*They need us to vote for them* so that they will take heart and carry on the fight long term.
Photo (above) was posted to Twitter (X). It was from Hamilton West where dozens of Labour Party election bill boards were sprayed with Graffiti, others totally destroyed.
Symbolic of many New Zealanders outrage and disgust for Jacinda Ardern’s catastrophic governance of our country over the past 6 years.
Labour are toast.
A friend sent me an email asking who I’m voting for this election.
My reply follows… This is difficult to write as by declaring my views, it will cause some people I respect do be disappointed that I have not come out in full support of them or their team.
This is not because I don’t in support them… the problem is *the Freedom moment is fractured*, making it a nightmare for people like myself who does no want to be part of this this division and wants to work to unite as many Freedom advocates together as we can for under a democracy there is strength in numbers.
Divided we fall.
That this is true has effected my leanings for this election.
I know many friends will disagree with my recommendations below.
This is why freedom and tolerance are essential for friendships and society.
If after the election a single party stands head and shoulders above the rest, that is most likely to be where I will support moving forward.
As the election is close I don’t believe I can sit on the fence in indecision any more… so I’m revealing my preference now for others to contemplate my rationale.
I will still vocally support *These small parties* right up to the elections, and I wish them all success.
Each of them has their merits, and true Freedom advocates whom have my deep respect.
Note: What follows is a reply to an old friend. It’s not meant to be Razor sharp and unassailable… It’s lightweight.
Hey Tim… Who will you be voting for?????
This election is a terrible mess for those of us who want New Zealand to return to ‘the good old days’ of freedom, tolerance, etc.
In my opinion *All* the parties and politicians currently in parliament are corrupt and guilty of complicity with the radical woke agenda, Covid tyranny, massive debt, and expansion of racism. all of which are the legacy of Jacinda Ardern selling our country out to the World Economic Forum and the Great Reset.
So I will not vote for *Any of them*. I hold both National and Act, and New Zealand First as all guilty.
Yet where does that leave me?
The people of New Zealand are most likely to vote our Labour, and they will be replaced with a National-Act Government.
This will be an improvement on the Labour madness but not as great a reform as is needed, and will not save our country from the tentacles of the WEF.
Out of fear that Labour might win, many freedom people will be voting for Nat/Act.
The reasons being 1. They do not deserve our votes.
They will not hold inquiries into the evils of the past 6 years because the themselves went along with those evils… so they will continue the great lies… and we will be in danger of more lockdowns when ever any so-called ‘new Covid strains’ are announced.
2. There are several small new parties that have been formed by good freedom fighters who need support,
Parties that want to fix the real problems.
Parties that want to have investigations and hold the guilty to account.
Parties that actually champion *my Freedom and equality values*
It would be immoral for me to turn my back on these heroic good parties out of fear and vote for Nat/Act.
New Zealand desperately needs *New Blood* in parliament and there are some excellent Heroic New Zealanders who have stepped up.
The sad thing is they have not formed a single strong united party,
These are head strong individuals and there are personality clashes,
So they are leading their own parties, against each other. splitting / weakening the Freedom vote.
Its a real shame… The established parties can celebrate because our division in the freedom movement is self-defeating.
The Leighton Baker Party.
The New Conservatives.
Democracy New Zealand.
Freedoms New Zealand.
As the election approaches internal squabbles cause some of these parties to self destruct.
I still have not made a final decision as to which of these I will vote for.
Yet one will get my party vote.
If any of them have a candidate in Hamilton West. They will get my candidate vote.
If they were united we could guarantee that party would easily get past the 5% mark and into parliament, yet because they are fractured It makes it very hard… and fewer people will vote for any of them because they ‘think’ to do so ‘is a wasted vote’.
I think that is 100% wrong!
New Zealand needs to get new people into parliament. People who believe and support freedom, national independence, defends free speech, defends of our rights to chose our own medical treatments, racial equality before the law, and prohibit the education system from Woke indoctrination,
This being so I will be voting for one of these new parties, and even if they only get 3% I will stand by my vote and be happy I voted for them.
The more of us who do this the stronger result they will get, and it will uphold them to remain in the fight for the next election.
Hopefully some of them will be able to get over their differences and Unite, making them much stronger for 2026.
I may then put myself back in the game too.
The Freedoms New Zealand Party is a coalition of groups with Brian Tamaki and Lawyer Sue Grey.
This party will get a strong result. Some people don’t like Brian Tamaki… understandable… yet the man has done much to show he is for Freedom and New Zealand. Sue Grey is another wonderful Freedom fighter.
New Zealand would be much better off with these people in parliament.
Leighton Baker is Ex New Conservatives Leader… and another great freedom Advocate.
NZ Loyal was founded by Ex TV personality Liz Gunn. Another wonderful Freedom advocate and vocal opponent of Jacinda Ardern.
Liz is full of patriotism and passion, very articulate and has a large and growing following.
Democracy NZ has an Ex National Party MP (Matt King) as Leader, and was doing extraordinarily well with a good chance of getting in to parliament, yet had a big implosion which caused a big loss of support.
New Conservatives have been in the game for several elections. They are an established party, I voted for them last time. Yet after the last election they spat the dummy and lost a lot of their top people… including Leighton baker, who now has his own party. Despite these things I have been strongly considering voting for them again.
The last election was *super suspect*.to the degree I believe there is evidenced of election fraud… I blogged about this evidence… (see Link below)
So My friend… that is how I read the cards as of today.
It really is a difficult choice.
I’m leaning towards *Freedoms New Zealand.* with one caveat… I need to clarify their position on *Co-governance*.
For me resolute opposition to that is morally non-negotiable.
I believe they have a fair chance at getting 5%, I believe their structure will allow them to assimilate some of the other parties into their coalition group… which I believe is the way forward.
This does not mean I have anything against the other small parties… I would love to support them all. Yet that can’t be done.
I have made some efforts to contact some of these parties yet received no feed back.
None of them have approached me to join them… another small party did yet it will not be registered this election, and I declined.
I have contemplated standing as an independent, yet to be fair I don’t have the spare resources to do that.
Anyway I’s great to get your email!
It would have been easier to make a choice… for everyone… if there was one stand out party that clearly had the greater share of top notch candidates, and popular support, yet that is not the case. All the choices have virtues and vises, strengths and weaknesses.
For example I have spent years criisising Brian Tamaki’s political antics over the last 2 decades, yet now I am considering giving his party my vote.
I believe both himself and Sue Grey have stepped up over the recent Tyranny and Woke madness of the Arden Regime and absolute lack of opposition from National and Act.
*Freedom* has become their watchword… so though undoubtedly I will not agree with many of Brian and Sues ideas and opinions, I do not hesitate to suggest that New Zealand would be much much better off with them in parliament compared to the shysters we now suffer.
They are fighting for our Freedom and Rights, and National Sovereignty… which is essential if we New Zealanders are to maintain of Democratic society in which we choose how our country will be governed… not a committee of Evil Foreign Dictators.
Friends, I know you appreciate how important this election is. You desire to make your votes count. So do I. I will not waiver from calling you all out should you decide to vote for Ardern’s collaborators Act, National, NZ First! There are Freedom Heroes who need our support!
The end is nigh!
Global Boiling is here!
OH Dear God! What shall we do?????
We had better institute a Global Shut down!
Are the Globalists poised to implement the Great Reset?
All Auguries bode ill! Many factors lead me to believe the Globalists are about to pounce… and that is why they have in recent days elevated their climate alarmism to truly unhinged levels.
Just in case you have been in a coma for the past decade, and are wondering what I’m raving on about, ‘The Great Reset’ is the Socialist Gospel… the institution of the Socialist New World Order. The End of Independent Sovereign Nations, replaced with Global citizenship, and a Cashless global digital currency.
I believe the NWO is nothing less than the establishment of the Kingdom of the Antichrist as foretold in the Bible. 666. As foretold… As it was in the days of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel, All Nations will be gathered under one All powerful Kingdom, presided over by the Enemy of God and mankind.
You will own nothing… yet you are told that you will be happy.
No one will be able to buy or sell except they have the Mark of the Beast. (Rev 13)
There will be no more Religious Liberty.
To achieve their Diabolical ambitions The World Economic Forum are manufacturing a fake existential crisis to justify their monumental grab for total power over the entire planet!
And billions of idiots are falling for it!
They have control of the UN, The World Health Organisation, and their puppets are in positions of power in almost every Western nation.
It has been decades in the planning, and the fate of human freedom hangs in the balance.
Satan Laughing spreads his wings!
The secretary-general of the United Nations Antonio Guterres.
It will be the end of Capitalism, and the birth of the New Age of Socialism!
Hearts and Hugs!!!!
Individual pursuit of wealth and happiness will be over.
All resources will be used for the greater good of the Herd.
*That is the sort of Socialist Bullshit they expect us all to mindlessly embrace*
Anyone with any understanding of how Socialism really works knows that if this New World Order is allowed to get established It will Be Hell on Earth!
Every individual will be allocated their share via the Global social credit system, your personal carbon footprint will be tracked, Your opinions will be scrutinised and policed.
All you must do is submit to the New World Order by taking the implant.
Rejoice Ye Damned Slaves!!!
Some of you may think this is all a bit stink… yet then you remember the Earth is Boiling!!!!!!!
Capitalism and Freedom are destroying the planet! ( At least that’s what the WEF and Leftist Greens wants you to believe!)
THE EARTH IS BOILING!!!!!! (I call BULLSHIT!)
Click and watch that Bangin video (above) from Daisy Cousens.
Our benevolent billionaire banker elites have foreseen all of this and have been selflessly labouring for decades on such a scheme of salvation. The Great Reset.
(If you believe these maniacs have the best interests of humanity at heart, you have rocks for brains!)
It seems patently obvious to me the recent escalation in extreme alarmist retoric is prepping the sheeple of the world into complying with the extreme political evils the Globalists are about to launch… right across the globe. All at once.
The embedded WEF Minions making these absurd claims about ‘Global Boiling’ take their orders from and are working to a schedule dictated by the Globalist Puppet masters, Schwab, Gates, Soros.
Fact check that!
On cue no sooner does The UN and other alarmists ramp up their retoric… catastrophic fires start to break out’ in Hawaii and elsewhere.
The media squeals “Global Boiling!” Global Boiling!
Of course it’s summer in the Northern hemisphere and that’s fire season, just as it is 6mths later in Australia. Poor management of national forests… the failure to maintain fire breaks, and do controlled burn offs of ‘Undergrowth ‘Fuel loads’ is the chief reason why massive fires have become the new normal. Nothing to do with a climate crisis.
This is all well understood, yet satellite images of recent fires in Canada show 6 or more fires starting in synchronicity. Obvious arson… yet Trudeau and Biden take to their National podiums fanning the flames of Climate change hysteria.
This is all by design… All part of the script to justify what is coming… The end of freedom in the West. That is unless we the people rise up in mass protest and Refuse to submit to this Globalists treachery.
If they are poised to implement a global climate lockdown We should be on the watch for some truly gob smacking brazen catastrophe… possibly A fire of unprecedented scale to break out somewhere with massive loss of life so shocking as to cause everyone on Earth to gasp. Not to infer what happened in Hawaii was trivial, if something of stupendous magnitude happens that can be construed to be a result of ‘Global Boiling’…. I for one will not be surprised.
The Globalists are ready to turn such a happenstance to their own advantage. IMO they are evil enough to engineer such an atrocity.
The stakes don’t get any higher than this.
The elites don’t give a rats arse about the billions of filthy little people who scurry about on *their planet*!
They have already decided there are too many of us… and the anti-human far left Environmental movement has done a fabulous job of instilling this Malthusian myth into the hearts and minds of the sheeple of the world… esp their children.
The evil Globalists are about to seize control of *everything*.
It is coming down to the wire!
A show down between the Globalists New World Order, and Freedom loving Americans and Nationalist patriots in all Western nations.
We shall fight to retain our Independence and right to self-determination!
We see the evil hand of George Soros directly at work manipulating the legal systems right across The US seeking to circumvent democracy and prevent American citizens from being able to vote Donald Trump back into office. It does not matter whether you like Trump or not… this corruption ought to be patently obvious to all! It ought to disgust and alarm *All enlightened people* (I’ll be writing another article on this) yet if The Soros Scheme to block Trump from running in the coming election is unsuccessful, there is an extremely high possibility the Globalists will pull the pin *just before the elections*.
That is how immediate this monumental conspiracy could kick off!
A Trump Presidency would be a massive blow to their aims… The Aged Schwab, Gates, and Soros might never live to see another ‘opportunity’ to grab Global power.
These Machiavellian Megalomaniacs have a sense of urgency to achieve their ultimate aims for Global Domination.
Soros is counting on Mass Trump Derangement Syndrome to cause the world to turn a blind eye towards this massive travesty against the American democracy.
Sadly I think he can have confidence that a massive portion of humanity don’t care if Trump is defrauded. They are blinded by their own contempt.
If you don’t want your children to grow up slaves be ready to march in the streets!
Be ready to go to Parliament and protest!
They are getting ready to impose their New World Order under the guise of the climate emergency. *NOW*
And it will resemble North Korean Type totalitarianism… but on steroids.
They have the technology now to monitor and control all human beings on Earth.
Big Brother… 1984… George Orwell.
Understand the level of tyranny they must impose if they hope to maintain an iron grip on power over the entire earth!
Understand the level of suppression of Thought and ambition they must hold over the peoples minds!
Enlightenment Ideals, and Christianity must be crushed out of existence.
We can still beat them and they know it!
They are desperate to gain control of the internet and pass censorship laws to make articles like this one ‘illegal’!
Because it is via Free speech that We the people can rally against them and thwart their evil plans.
Remember what these Evil Bastards did during the Covid Scamdemic!
Remember it was only the compliance of the sheeple that allowed them to trample our human rights, destroy our nations economy and impost tyrannical lockdowns… all of which were a travesty!
Did we learn anything from that massive social experiment on Global control????
Realise what I am saying is not fantasy, but an accurate description of the Political Establishment’s modus opperandi.
Wake up Sheeple!
So be ready to march in the streets people!
Be ready to resist!
Be ready to defy their evil orders!
Refuse to comply!
United we stand!
And especially remain peaceful in your civil disobedience… for history has proven that peaceful resistance can break despotic powers… as long as *all the people* act in solidarity and do not waiver in the face of the jackboots.
We must be prepared to make the ultimate personal sacrifices to save our children from Satanic Slavery.
It is also election time!
We desperately need to get rid of Labour, The Greens, and the Maori Party, yet if you want to save New Zealand from the great Reset for goodness sake Don’t vote National.
Don’t vote Act! Certainly don’t vote NZ first!
These parties were fully complicit in Arden’s Tyrannical activities since 2017.
Under Ardern these parties absolutely failed to be an effective opposition… that is because they are fundamentally in agreement on 90% of the big issues that New Zealand has faced… and they are fully on board with The Globalist agenda.|
I implore all Freedom fighters to vote for one of the New Freedom based parties!
Vote for New Conservatives, or Democracy NZ, or Leighton Bakers party, Or NZ Loyal, or Sue Grey’s and Brian Tamaki’s Freedom coalition.
New Zealand desperately needs to sweep out the despicable Status quo parties, and elect new blood!
It is my understanding that all these New parties stand for New Zealand’s Independence and National Sovereignty in opposition to the Globalist’s aims.
Voting for any of the status quo is a wasted vote.
Update: 26-8-23 *Here we go!…
No less than 79 Arsonists have been arrested in Greece! You can bet they are all Far Left Radicals who are part of the Globalist scheme to promote the idea of ‘Global Boiling’. Their counterparts are lighting fires all over the globe then screaming ‘Climate change!!!!
“… Greece has called out “arsonist scum” after police made 79 arson arrests over wildfires ravaging the country.
Civil Protection Minister Vassilis Kikilias said there had been several attempts by arsonists to start new fires on Mount Parnitha, north-west of Athens.
The blaze is one of hundreds in the nation where wildfires have already killed at least 20 people this week.
“You are committing a crime against the country,” Mr Kikilias said.
“Arsonist scum are setting fires that threaten forests, property and, most of all, human lives,” Mr Kikilias told Greeks during a televised emergency briefing on Thursday.
“You will not get away with it, we will find you, you will be held accountable.”
Summer wildfires are common in Greece and scientists have linked the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, including heatwaves, to climate change…”
The Bible predicted the Antichrist minions of Satan would try to enslave the world. It will only happen on our watch *if we wallow in apathy and indifference*.
If we fight this I see no reason in the scriptures why this ultimate scheme of Satan cannot be delayed for a generation or two… when a more Godless, and docile, and ignorant generation fails to appreciate what is at stake. NOT ON OUR WATCH!
And irrespective of the outcome of this struggle, every one of us needs to turn to God Almighty and realise our need to accept the Gospel of his grace.
For We are all *individually* Sinners, and as such our souls are in danger of eternal damnation. It is sin and rebellion against God that is behind the New World Order. yet the gospel say’s God loves us all *as individuals* and has made a way for us to be redeemed, forgiven, and cleansed of our sins, so that we can spend eternity in heaven… in his presence.
The Gospel is that God our Father sent Jesus Christ his son to die on the cross for our sins, and that he was burred, and that he rose from the dead in victory over sin and Death.
Whosoever choses to believe this good news will be saved. Without works! Salvation is the gift of God! You can be saved and put right with God Almighty right now!
It matters not what evils you have committed or what vises you struggle with. If you turn to God and call upon the name of Jesus… you will be saved!
For his love and grace are sufficient *for all*.
Trust in the gospel and no matter what happens, you will spend eternity in Heaven. These are the sure promises of God found in the Bible.
When the Kingdom of the AntiChrist appears (The New World Order) The saved will be raptured out by God, yet all those who rejected Christ will be deceived by strong delusions and will accept the Mark of the Beast.
All who receive the Mark will be judged by God Almighty… Jesus Christ… and be separated from God… Damned… For eternity.
This is the Ultimate spiritual battle that is going on.
Schwab, Gates, and Soros are just the Foolish minions of Satan… deceived by their own Vanity, and lust for power.
My personal testimony is I believe Jesus Christ is the Way, The Truth, and the Life!
The accuracy of the Bible in predicting the coming of Global Tyranny is evidence of it’s Divine truth.
Christianity is the salt of the Earth that prevents the rot… yet Christianity has been systematically attacked and is being forsaken. This is why the world is sinking back into darkness.
Yet We can have a revival!
we must have a revival… if Western civilistaion is to be saved from the false evil Gospel of Socialist Tyranny.
When The Antichrist does finally come to power, he will rule for a mere 7 years… yet these shall be the worst years in the history of Human Government.
In the End, The reign of the Antichrist shall be cut short by the Return of Christ as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
The Antichrist shall be destroyed, and Christ will set up his Kingdom in Israel.
Sounds Far fetched?
It is happening before your very eyes!
Christ visited Israel in the 1st century BC in accordance with the promises of God to the Jewish Fathers.
He changed world history.
Pears encyclopedia calls him “the greatest figure in Human history”.
The Bible promises that he shall return.
He shall rule from Jerusalem for 1000 years… the Prince of Peace.
They are at it again! This Labour government might be about to be kicked into touch yet they are hell bent of attacking Free speech and controlling On=line content via creating a new un-unelected Censorship Authority to carry on wreaking havoc on our country after they have lost supreme power.
Opportunity to make a submission against this latest attack closes at Midnight tonight 30-7-23.
There is still time!
The quickest way to make a submission in time is to follow the Free speech Unions ‘Easy step’ submission generator.
Or go to the discussion documents ‘Feedback’ function. here.
Answer their questions the best you can.
The final section allows you to add your own submission in your own words.
Any submission resisting the curtailment of Free speech is better than doing nothing and allowing these evil power to rob us of Free speech without challenge.
Free Speech is Essential!
The Globalists and Woke Socialists are hell bent on suppressing their opposition by force of Law.
We cannot let that happen.
That is to surrender our country to Marxist tyranny!
Special thanks to ‘Hobson’s Pledge’ and The New Zealand free Speech Union for alerting Me to what was afoot.
The Government tried to sneak this through!
A Poll discovered only 25% of New Zealanders were aware this was coming down the pipeline.
Most transparent Government eva! Tui Ad. (Yeah Right!)
Without question This Labour Government has been the most dishonest and sleazy and disastrous in our entire history!
My submission was been rushed… as usual, and so contains my usual writing, spelling and grammatical crimes… Long winded… repetitious… waffling.
I have edited and corrected many errors in the draft below that embarrassingly still exist in my real sub, yet could not bear to let them stand…
Please read on…
This is my submission.
On the Proposals for a New Regulatory Body within the Safer On-line Services and Media Platforms Discussion Document.
To the committee.
This is my written submission opposing the government proposal to create a new appointed regulatory body that will essentially prohibit New Zealanders sharing their personal views, and opinions on line which do not conform to the narrow one sided opinions of Gov appointed gatekeepers under the guise of ‘protecting vulnerable minorities’.
The new authority will not be subject to the democratic process.
That is unacceptable and dangerous.
I reject the idea that the creation of such a regulatory authority will make New Zealanders safer.
I believe it will have the opposite effect because it will curtail the most essential attribute for a free and civil society… The right to free speech, which includes the right to hold and express views that are contrary to those of the government of the day.
Free speech is essential to the safety of the people, including minorities as their views, opinions, and general liberty are protected by the same principles of Law… equally applied.
History shows that Government regulation of free speech puts populations in grave danger!
This government has tried to enact hate speech laws in the recent past yet met with strong public outrage and yet here we are… the same meddlesome radicals hoping to enact their own designs through the back door while the people are unaware.
The majority of New Zealanders do not even know these proposals are being pushed forward!
This is an attempt to subvert democracy and enact this regulatory body by stealth!
Where was all the Public advertising that you were planning this curtailment of their free speech on line?
Where was your invitations to the public to have their say?
This can be juxtaposed with all the Gov mass advertising telling the people to get vaccinated!
Obviously this government thinks free speech is not a matter of great Pubic importance!
In truth this government considers free speech an impediment to the implementation of their radical agenda.
So on the basis that this proposal will not face thorough public notification and consultation, I hold this committee to desist from moving forward with the proposals in the discussion document as they have no legitimate mandate from the New Zealand people.
I had to receive my short notice of your intended power grab from independent free speech watchdogs ‘The Free Speech Union’, and Hobson’s Pledge!
This exposes the underhand nature of what is afoot… You wanted to minimise public input because you know what you are proposing goes against the will of the majority.
For the same reason this Government has pushed through so many radical new laws under urgency when there has been no legitimate justification for doing so!
They have done this to sidestep the Legal safeguards that are supposed to prevent Radicals corrupting our Democracy.
This has been the least transparent, most undemocratic Government in the history of our nation.
They are running our country into the dirt!
This Radical Labour Government is in it’s death throes.
Jacinda Ardern quit her post knowing the writing was on the wall.
This Government cannot claim to represent us.
To enact this proposal will be an act of subversion against our democracy.
Let me now propose the correct way the rights of minorities and individuals are legitimately protected in a free and civil society.
Rather than by creating more Bureaucratic monstrosities and apartheid laws, the proper means to protect minorities is the entrenchment of a Bill of Equal Rights that Parliament and corporations must honor as the highest laws of the land.
It can be rightly argued that an absolute democracy ( Democratically elected parliament with absolute power) is nothing more than arbitrary mob rule and that as such minorities and individuals can and do get trampled under foot. This is what a Bill of Rights *with teeth* prevents.
The unspoken rationale for creating the proposed new on line Authority is to steer the public discourse, preventing popular dissenting voices from successfully rallying the people against Government desired social reforms and policies. The rationale is if Free speech is allowed to reign this will thwart unpopular Government interventions thereby perpetuating the imagined oppression of select minorities the woke socialists wish to ‘elevate’.
The means by which they now seek to achieve this (by censoring opinion) to control the public discourse is extremely partisan.
The establishment of Apartheid institutions such as this proposed Authority will corrupt the democratic process of which free speech and the right to dissent is fundamental.
Instead of fighting Racism These patently Racist laws and institutions entrench racism!
They ferment prejudices and disrupt racial harmony.
The proper way to protect minorities from mob rule is by having an iron clad Bill of Rights which Parliaments must respect. This way minorities and individuals *are guaranteed the same rights* as everyone else. So that they cannot be legally oppressed as they have full redress to the Law and the principle of equality of rights!
Clearly the aims of the present Government is not true justice as defined by equality before the Law, but to grant special rights, privileges, and advantages to their pet demographics with one hand, while actively suppressing, disadvantaging, and trampling the rights of Demographics they disfavor.
This is how ‘Critical Theory’ and ‘Identity politics’ functions. It is diametrically opposed to equal rights, and justice, and the traditional enlightened ideals and values which made New Zealand a first world nation and makes our country such an exceptional place to live.
New Zealand is not a racist country!
New Zealand is not a bigoted Nation!
Any pretenses to the contrary are Radical Political constructs with no basis in fact or reality.
For example it is a travesty to sugest the greatest threat to New Zealand society is ‘White Nationalism… White supremacy’!
That is an outrageous slander against the good character of the New Zealand people!
It is a political lie!
On-line hate is not a serious problem in New Zealand that warrants this heavy handed intervention.
Critical Theory is in fact a recipe for creating Racist and bigoted societies fragmented by pitting one demographic against another.
It is easy to foresee the new regulatory Authority would seek to suppress opinions like mine from being desseminated on line.
I would be censored out of existence in the on-line public square.
I would most likely be maligned by this Regulator and defamed as a hateful and dangerous racist, and would have no way to defend my name.
Their Hate speech laws could even threaten me with jail.
The idea is that people like me should not participate in public discourse, but shut up… and allow the government to impose it’s will unchallenged.
These are serious matters.
The powers that be seeking to establish this new authority do not wish the conversation to be taken in this direction for obvious reasons.
They don’t like opinions like mine that express concerns their new engine will be used for nefarious political ends. They take umbrage at the very thought their personal views might be considered dangerous and hateful! How dare I!
As we speak they are attempting to de-legitimise and disqualify submissions like mine under the guise of being ‘hateful’ ‘offensive’, and thereby not be obliged to register them and make them publicly available for scrutiny.
Tell me whose interests are really served by this raft of curtailments of long established democratic rights?
They want to maintain the pretense that the proposed authority will make the internet ‘safer’ for certain groups and will lose little sleep that their Thought Police will suffocate dissenters like me.
In fact they salivate at having such power.
I’m a member of a particular minority they despise!
I’m the type of ‘dangerous’ thinker they wish to keep everyone ‘safe’ from!
In reality I am a defender of truth and freedom and an enlightened advocate for limited government and equality before the law.
Values and ideals held by a majority of New Zealanders… The group the Socialist radicals wish to subjugate.
I have no hate in my heart.
I am passionate about protecting Freedom and National independence for my children’s sake… and their children.
Why do you think most New Zealander strongly oppose the government setting up such an Authority which will curtail their On-line freedoms?
We know such an authority will be used to prevent criticism and protests against the governments radical socialist agenda which stands in opposition to New Zealanders long held traditional values and ideals… and that is why this governments agenda can accurately be described as radical and hostile.
The proposals are in fact seeking to impose Racial prejudices into law under the pretense of combating racism!
I am of Maori decent yet the proposals frighten me because they give powers to censor dissenting views which seek to rally the people of New Zealand to defend our national interests, and resist the Globalist socialist agendas being planned abroad by powerful organizations which is nothing short of surrendering our National sovereignty.
It is no exaggeration to say that should this new Authority be enacted that it will be done so without any mandate of the Majority of New Zealanders but against their well established and previously clearly expressed will… that of strong and overwhelming opposition to the furtherment of institutional Racial separatism. This is easily gleaned from the many other attempts New Zealand Governments have tried to further entrench separatism, yet were faced with overwhelming expressions of public objection.
Examples of this are plentiful, such as the 2013 Government Constitutional Review.
Now the Radicals, having had their aims thwarted by the safeguards of Democratic due process, now seek to achieve their apartheid goals by subverting public consultation processes, referendums, and other impediments that have been put in place to prevent our Government and Laws being highjacked by Radicals against the will of the people.
Regarding The concept of Te Ao Māori (Māori world view)
What a travesty!
The truth is there is no such thing as ‘The Maori position’. The Pro-Maori position, etc. *That is a politically manufactured travesty*,
Like all peoples (such as the Pakeha) despite decades of propaganda and indoctrination in the State education system, we Maori don’t all think the same things, believe the same ideas, etc.
The notion that People can be so easily compatmentalised is shambolic!
Thinking Maori individuals can and do exist on all sides of any debate… They are not all locked in ‘Group think’… slaves to their tribes, or their ethnicity. It is therefore a scam to pretend any hand picked body of Bureaucrats will be ‘representative’ of Maori.
In the same way that the majority of Maori do not support the regressive and divisive views of Te Pati Maori!
Yet we can be sure your new Regulatory board will be peopled with Radicals who peddle Te Pati Maori type wares cloaked under the guise of being ‘The Official Maori World View’.
Most Maori today are not stuck in the past but happily share modern Western Values and concepts with the rest of New Zealand. ‘He Iwi Tahi Tatau’ We have become one people in the true spirit of the Treaty of Waitangi. While we still enjoy many aspects of our cultural heritage we do not appreciate nor desire to be hog tied to the past, values, and backward concepts that may have held currency long ago.
So any idea of an Official ‘Maori view’ being today distinct from all other Kiwis is a false political construct designed to institutionalise Racial divide and prevent citizens from being able to voice their abhorrence for such a contemptible, and divisive scheme. To speak against this scheme will be deemed to be *Anti-Maori and Hateful Racism*.
This is a claim Te Pati Maori Radicals make all day every day!
That is the sort of politics this new authority will represent.
The idea of entrenching an ‘Official Maori world view’ is a scheme that seeks to reverse the progress of the last 150 years and Re insnare most Maori back under tribalism.
The very act of speaking out against these racist schemes will be deemed to be ‘Anti-Maori’ and rendered a thought crime!
How can a democracy work when Political Parties Like Te Pati Maori, The Greens, and Labour make all sorts of derogatory claims about Pakeha New Zealanders, and twist historic reality to suit their own agenda, accruing more and more Authority, Power, and Tax money unto themselves all the while the rest of New Zealand must sit in silence while they are being defamed, defrauded, and disenfranchised?
This is what happens under an apartheid State!
This is real racial prejudice!
This is what your proposal seeks to establish and why it is an abomination!
When will you wake up to the fact that all your decades of so-called socialist ‘positive discriminations’ designed to raise Maori out of their dire social statistics are a complete failure?
The true problems facing the Maori people today is not racial oppression, but poor ethics, backward ideas, and a massive lack of self responsibility!
All your socialism and victim blaming of the Pakeha has rendered them basket cases!
They take zero ownership of their own circumstances.
If they are ever to rise out of the mire they must quit all the blame and take ownership for their criminality.
They must take ownership for their own ill health.
Socialism traps people in Dependence upon the State!
It does not promote Moral fibre and strong self-reliance!
Maori are already the most politically favoured race in New Zealand by a country mile. Yet that truth never prevents them from claiming to be the perpetual victims of Racism.
Socialism is a totalitarian ideology that treats populations like hapless puppets rather than free Self governing individuals with rights… to be manipulated, and cajoled into conforming
to Socialist aims… all under the guise of Social justice as conceived by them… The self-professing benevolent Puppet masters.
They are forever attacking freedom and forever hungry for more power and authority.
They know best! That is what they believe and they expect us to surrender our own values and beliefs and bend to their superior will.
To question their motives and wisdom is to be considered a Hateful bigot and crackpot.
The thing is we New Zealanders are not so easily fooled! We know who really are the dangerous Crackpots and extremists whose values are at variance with the people and traditions of our country!
The race question is just one Free speech issue your proposed regulator threatens to suffocate.
Other socialist schemes will also become forbidden to dissent… such as on matters of Immigration, Vaccination, Climate Change policy, Matters of Sex Education, sexuality, etc. as it is easy to predict ‘scope creep’ from this new body and the very idea of ‘A Maori World View’ must be by it’s very nature.. an ‘All encompassing Wholistic paradigm’ with tentacles reaching into all things political.
We Freedom loving New Zealanders will not tolerate our Free nation being hijacked by Radicals hell bent on destroying the foundations of Freedom… esp Free Speech.
We shall peacefully resist at every step, as is our right.
“Free Speech is a lighted lamp to be held high so as to dispel the darkness of barbarous, backward, and unjust traditions and ideas that have yet to be vanquished, and it is for this reason that Freethinkers with new, progressive, and better ideas have always been in danger of being lynched by the mob who don’t take kindly to having their ingrained delusions exposed to the light.
We must always be vigilant, and fearful, and view with suspicion any political party or vested interest that seeks to pass laws that restrict free speech.
Guard it as you would your own family for, should this right be whittled away and lost, so too will other precious rights fall in quick succession and, if you fail to defend this essential right, you will bequeath to your children a life of virtual slavery and indoctrination.
Their future depends on their rights and liberties being secure and it is our duty to ensure they remain so on our watch until we exit the stage. Then it will be up to them to remain eternally vigilant for that is the price of Liberty.” (Free Speech Under Attack. Tross Publishing. pg 181-182)
There are members of our parliament whose true allegiances lie with a corporation of Foreign interests such as the World Economic Forum, The United Nations, The World Health Organisation… who desire to destroy the foundations, values, and traditions that underpin Western Nations, and which have caused them to prosper far above other portions of the world.
These Globalist organisations have a plan by which they seek to usurp the Sovereignty and Independence of prosperous Nations like New Zealand.
They desire to cripple our democratic foundations whereby the people elect their own leaders for the sake of putting their nation and peoples interests first.
This creates a bulwark that stands in the way of the Globalist scheme for a New World Order, Global digital currency and ID system.
That is why the Golbalists know nationalistic democracies like the one we have in NZ must be weakened, so that their Global schemes can be imposed… most of which is contrary to the best interests of these First world nations.
The people are not fools. We can see when politicians are betraying our interests. And when they do this we protest, and we sack them. The Globalists plan requires politicians of divided loyalty to gain control over their nations internet and regulate what citizens may or may not say on line.
Then they can control dissent and prohibit online discussion and protests against the implementation of the Globalist agenda.
You may mock my opinions. That’s fine. Just remember I have the right to hold and express them on line and out on the street.
I have the right to participate in the Democratic processes of this country,
In conclusion I reiterate my absolute opposition to the establishment of this Un-elected regulator of New Zealanders On-line activities.
I believe Free Speech must be upheld for All New Zealanders and that no ‘official Narratives’ be allowed to be ‘blueprints’ for what New Zealanders are allowed to Think, or say.
It is not hateful to hold and express values and beliefs that dissent from the Government of the days opinions and theories’.. or even ‘Science’. It is a right that must remain protected By Law for that is vital for any Free society to exist.

Damien Grant: “Our country is better because there are those advocating for, and against, things that they passionately believe in or are opposed to.”
Check out Damien Grant’s latest opinion piece. Link below. But first a few Wikiriwhi musings.
IMO Damien is probably New Zealand best freedom orientated political commentator who gets footage in the mainstream media, even though he often says things that get up my nose.
He is definitely an advocate of less government, yet frames his articles in such a way that his personal proclivity is not punching Fascists and Commies in the face… and that is why he gets published in the mainstream when few other Liberty minded people do.
Via his style he is able to squeeze in some very important Libertarian takes on thorny issues that otherwise never reach the public discourse, because he splices them seamlessly within the cloth that otherwise might appear to be congratulating the successes of the advocates of Totalitarianism (and it is an objective fact that Woke Far left activism is kicking arse and making us freedom advocates look like Chumps!).
Today’s article (link below) is a perfect example of this strategy.
It may be painful to read… but it’s 100% true… or at least 95% true.
Though in no way can it be said that Damien is an Anti-vaxxer, I don’t think it is a coincidence he penned this article now… after the Big Propaganda piece ‘Boiling Point’ much lauded by those who hate the Anti-covid lockdown protesters just dropped the other day.
IMO this is Damien’s stealthy impartial way of defending that historic and righteous protest… in principle.
The topic is participating in our nations democracy. Grant makes no mention as to why our particular brand of Democracy makes being ceaselessly active far more critical than it otherwise would be if we had an enlightened ever vigilant Liberty loving population who prided themselves on self-reliance, and an iron clad constitution that kept meddlesome power mad totalitarians in fetters.
Oh what such a blessed state of affairs that would be!
New Zealand was once a strong self-reliant population… the envy of the world… yet we have lost this and become a nation of woke sheeple begging for safe spaces and hand outs.
We should sit in sackcloth and ashes.
We have become consumed with envy. Men have become effeminate from decades of ease.
Our system of government… the unconstrained arbitrary powers of our parliament means none of our rights, liberties, or property are secure. We are being bleed dry via taxes. We are treated like rats in social experiments. Our Lives count for zero. We are muzzled. Our kids are brainwashed in State schools. And the ether is thick with mainstream NWO agenda driven propaganda so that the fools now beg for their own enslavement.
Any hysteria, or trend can and does move parliament to act rashly and swing a club.
When seeking to prevent any constitutional restraints being put on parliament Margert Wilson once called the status quo ‘Our wonderfully fluid system’… yeah right!
Wonderful for meddlesome radical Ideologues!
Things are not looking good.
Should we throw away our rifles and run for the coast?
That may look like a tempting proposition to some.
Not this Maori! “The Arawa have 8 Breaths!”.
Better to die facing the enemy than with a spear in the back.
Things being as they are we Liberty minded, pro equality advocates need to lift our game… and be tireless and resolved in working for our treasured values and ideals.
Freedom and justice depend on it.
We cannot falter.
We cannot retire. esp given our values and Ideals are in peril.
We must do what we can to our final breath…
And we must maintain our dignity and spirit… conducting ourselves honorably… even when our adversaries fight dirty… such as using Cancel culture, deplatforming, etc.
Otherwise what will our legacy be?
The generation that quit, and let freedom slip away.
We have a mountain to conquer.
Lets get to it!
Update: Damien Grant responds… From here and here.
Now… to the Article….
Damien Grant says….
“…If you, like me, have a strong set of opinions on how our country should be run, there are ways to achieve this without waiting for the cumbersome, protracted and often ineffective electoral system. This is even more so given the atrophying membership of political parties.
The environmental movement provides an excellent demonstration of how ideas combined with determined advocacy has impacted both government policy, as well as the personal choices of individuals.
By contrast, those with a conservative and free-market agenda have not been as effective. The high-watermark for free-markets was the late 1980s and early 1990s….”

Today I delivered a public oral submission in opposition to The Films, Videos, and Publications Classification (Urgent Interim Classification Of Publications And Prevention of Online Harm) Amendment Bill.
I found a video link here.
My contribution starts about 1:21 hour/minutes into this video.
This Oral submission was in addition to the written submission I submitted back in March… That can be found here.
As I could not make it down to Wellington to deliver my submission in person, I delivered it via the ‘Zoom’ Online messenger App, which I found surprisingly user friendly.
I must confess my performance was sub par and I am disappointed with myself.
I struggled to get a draft written right up until midnight last night leaving myself no time to shorten it to length, polish, and practice delivery.
I probably would have been better off not reading my script and simply speaking from my heart.
Anyway it is done now.
Below is the text I wrote for this submission.
I however only got through about 30% before my allotted time was expired, and the Committee did not ask me any questions at the end.
I don’t expect my submission will have impacted upon their thinking one Iota.
The Woke Juggernaut will keep rolling forward without hinderance.
A funny thing is in a case of mistaken Identity it looked to me like todays Hearing was being chaired by Radical Leftist Sue Bradford!
I was sure of it… wondering if SB has a Doppelganger in parliament.
With people like her involved in this process, I feared for the worst.
Turned out not to be Sue Bradford but National’s Barbara Kuriger!
My Bad. 🙂
No offence meant.
I must restrain my negativity when I decide to make submissions to Government bills and inquiries, subjugating my cynical inclination to see the public submission process as farcical… merely a formality these day’s… rather than a genuine desire by parliament to know the will of the people, or out of any genuine reverence for the ideals and principles of Freedom and democracy.
They are feigning due process all the while fully intending to pass such Bills into law… granting themselves greater powers, and conversely eroding the rights of we.. the people.
A draft of my submission follows below.
Tim Wikiriwhi’s Oral submission opposing The Films, Videos, and Publications Classification (Urgent Interim Classification Of Publications And Prevention of Online Harm) Amendment Bill.
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
I brief explanation of who I am.
I am a New Zealand Citizen living in the Waikato.
I have been actively involved in both local body and National Politics for over 20 years.
I represented the Libertarianz Party as a spokesperson for 10 years.
I have stood for Election both for Hamilton City Council, and for the Hamilton West Ward for several general elections.
Over the past 2 decades I have made many submissions on a variety of Bills and Government inquiries.
I am a contributor to the Blog ‘Eternal Vigilance’.
I also contributed several chapters to a Book on Free speech called ‘Free Speech under attack’ released by ‘Tross Publishing’.
It came out late 2019 and can be purchased on line.
I recommend that Book to the committee as it is very pertinent to this business at hand, and in fact it predicted Bills like this one would be forthcoming and tried to warn the public about the real dangers involved in allowing politicians to erode our rights to Free speech.
I also have an 11 year old son in his last year at primary school, and 2 grandchildren also in primary school.
I am speaking up for their futures sake.
So that gives you a bit of my background, and will help you to appreciate that this subject is something I am both informed and passionate about.
Why is it that speaking truth takes courage and high character?
“In Times of universal deceit, telling the Truth is a revolutionary act” George Orwell.
“It is dangerous to be right when the Government is wrong”…. Voltaire
“He who dares not to offend cannot be honest”. United States Founding Father Thomas Payne.
Words are not violence and it is a moral abomination to conflate the two.
Before passing her oppressive new firearm prohibitions New Zealand Prime minister Jacinda Ardern said “Gun ownership’ is not a right, but a privilege”
Now it appears she is at it again… she obviously is of the opinion, that Free speech is not a right… but a privilege too… which she intends to take away.
She wants to decide what it is lawful for New Zealanders to express…
To the average disinterested citizen, and to those with only shallow understanding of politics This bill appears almost ‘benign’.
They will assume from what little the media has said about the proposals as simply the government trying to be nice to the less fortunate, to those they say are getting picked on and bullied… nobody likes bullies!
Many will assume this because this is how this bill has been sold to the public.
WE are supposed to believe this bill is making it illegal for nasty people to bully the weak and vulnerable on line or in print… and if that so… most fools will think that’s just fine!
So it appears. This is the rationale that is being used to get this bill passed into law so that the government and police have the legal authority to take down what they deem to be ‘Harmful or Offensive’ … and to grant themselves… the officials wielding these new powers legal indemnity should it be discovered that their censorship, or punishment’s was wrong and caused distress and harm to citizens.
Those of us who pay more attention to politics and have a far greater understanding of the importance of the right of Free Speech know with certainty that this Bill is in fact a component of a far larger political agenda, and that this bill if it passes will allow Radical Political ideologues to begin attacking the fundamental rights of their political opponents and critics.
And when this is understood it becomes clear that this bill is extremely dangerous to the well being of Freedom in this country, and to our democratic processes.
This is the first point I wish to make in my submission… That far from being just a nice ‘feel good’ piece of legislation that will only negatively effect nasty bullies and bigots, this bill is in fact a piece of subversive power grabbing by politicians with evil intentions cloaked under a guise of ‘caring for the vulnerable’.
Now I mentioned Political Ideologues… what/ who am I talking about?
A chief example, but far from being alone is our current Labour Party Prime minister Jacinda Ardern, and she may be described to be a Radical leftist Socialist who peddles the Woke, Globalist, Politically Correct Agenda and narrative.
Most people listening to my submission will understand those terms… Leftist, Socialist, Globalist, Woke, Politically Correct, and I will add the final term ‘Social Justice Warrior’
These terms embody what I described above as the ‘Radical Political Ideology’ that is already being systematically indoctrinated into our society, yet will be accelerated and intensified once this Bill becomes Law…. because once this law is passed, It will make it virtually impossible to criticise this process of indoctrination.
And this is at the heart of the scheme to make this law.
Now can I justify my use of the term ‘Radical’ in describing the political ideology Jacinda Ardern and comrades advocate and intend using every portion of Government power at their disposal to socially engineer and impress upon our Nation?
Yes I can. And the reason I can call her political ambitions ‘Radical’ is because they are at enmity with what we can describe as New Zealand’s traditional values upon which our nation was built, and which still hold sway… despite massive indoctrination campaigns via our education systems and the media.
This Governmental indoctrination is also being heavily assisted by the so-called ‘Community standards’ of Woke Dominated Social media companies which suppress the vast percentage of dissention opinions.
Social media Giants Like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube have their own version of this Bill already in operation on their platforms and it is resulting in Censorship of Anti-woke Dissenting opinions on a monumental scale… Enough to cause alarm to the degree that this partisan censorship is affecting elections.
Why may describe the Political Ideology of Woke as being radical?
Because Leftist Political Operatives around the Globe despise the prevailing values and beliefs of Western societies, they are attempting to execute an ideological revolution to overthrow the current ethos, and replace it with their own political ideals… and they intend using the force legislation like this Bill to achieve it, rather than via the only legitimate means congruent with a free society…. Free speech and persuasion in an open Public forum or equal rights.
And these are the second and third points I wish to make clear in todays submission.
This bill is a precursor to the imposition of political ideals and values by force that are highly controversial, that are at variance with the values and ideals of significant portions of our population, and that if this bill passes it will effectively remove New Zealand citizens rights to critisise the governments intended Indoctrination, in Schools, On Line, and in the media… because it is *on line* where today the majority of Pubic dialogue, Political debate, and commentary is carried on.
The internet is the new public domain, and an independent person can garner a considerable influence online… via the voluntary nature by which the public can freely access Websites, Blogs, Youtube videos, etc… and it is on these internet platforms that New Zealanders of all varieties can rightfully and democratically express their political opinions publicly… and a vast percentage of these opinions are scathing of what Radical Ideologues like Jacinda Arden are attempting to impose upon our Nation. The Ideologues pushing this bill intend to suppress and control this public backlash they know is inevitable when they crank up their Woke indoctrination esp in schools. They are prepared to use the force of the Law to ‘Take down’ content from the net they don’t like because it may generate greater public resistance to their Woke agenda.
Getting these censorship laws passed will criminalise dissenting opinions so that Parents, Radio show hosts, Journalists, and activists will fear being prosecuted should they dare to challenge the Radical left indoctrination that Woke ideologues intend using the Education system and media to propagate… against the will of Parents and citizens.
This Bill may therefore rightfully be deemed to be subversive to our Democracy.. because it attacks free speech, and will result in partisan censorship of the type that would impress Joseph Goebbels.
It is proper that I highlight the fundamentals of how a healthy Democracy functions in a free society.
The vital elements that must be maintained for Citizens to be able to make informed votes in choosing the candidates they wish to have representing their interests in parliament.
This is important, because when we look at these fundamentals, we see how it is the the Political ambitions of the Woke Radicals opposes itself to these fundamentals… which is why they desire to throttle free speech via this Bill.
The general tenor and dominating ethos of a free society is nothing more than the sum of the Beliefs and values freely held individually by the citizenry.
For example New Zealand has been described as holding very strong Judeo-Christian values and ideals, which is an inheritance from our ancestors. There are obviously many other influences that have shaped our National character yet this example serves the purpose of this discussion.
The History of Christianity’s influence on the political history of the world is a monumental topic. There have in darker times been Eras in which Christian Nations have harbored strong bigotries and practiced barbarous injustices, and yet there also grew in ‘Christiandom’ the ideals of the Equality of Human beings, and their inalienable God given rights and liberties… and it has been from these foundations that step by step Western nations became freer and more just, and along with this progressive march so too did standards of living rise and rise and rise.
Slavery was abolished, The persecution of Witches and Homosexuals was brought to an end. Woman gained the voting franchise. The rights of people to peacefully practice religions other than Christianity became so accepted and tolerated as to make it a struggle even to imagine living in those darker times when things were very different.
I massive reason why this progress occurred was because of the growth of the recognition of Free Speech… and the growth of other fundamentals to expanded and strengthened democracy.
With the process of Time even in New Zealand’s relatively short history as a nation modeled on English Law and Order we can see the National character has morphed so that Christian Ideals do not hold as great a sway as they once did… and yet the basic values are still there… and the Enlightenment principles of individual rights, and tolerance … though fading… have not yet been totally forgotten…
Thus these ideals still are freely held by a large portion of our Countrymen and they still determine the values they hold dear.
The Radical Woke Politicians despise these values and want to overthrow them… not via the legitimate means of propagating their alternative Woke beliefs via argument and persuasion in an open forum, in competition with other views, but instead by circumventing this just means of achieving their goal… ie by allowing the people to voluntarily embrace their new values and beliefs.
The problem they have is that far too many New Zealanders don’t want what they are selling!
And the radicals don’t care because deep down these leftist don’t believe in Rights and liberties… they believe in the all powerful Totalitarian State.
Hijacking the government, and using the powers of the law, and the engines of State to impose their alternative values… into the minds of the youth… against their parents will… by making it illegal for anyone to critisise what they are doing!
This has always been a part of Socialist political science.
These woke socialists are in fact taking western societies *Backwards* into less free more oppressive times… employing means that have historically proven to be the modus opperandi of tyrants and dictatorships… and they don’t care… as long as they have the power and it is those who oppose them who suffer.
These are the ugly truths that are kept out of sight… out of mind… while this bill works its way into Law.
I implore the committee to listen to the warnings of Citizens like myself.
I am confident that majority of submissions you have received from the public and those most well reasoned ask you to reject this Bill.
It is therefore your duty to report this back to parliament and do not recommend it passing into law.
Do not be party to this subversion of our Democracy and our rights to criticize the Woke Globalist agenda.
The Woke ideology is evil. Fools are free to believe it, yet it must never be allowed to usurp our Government and turn it against those citizens who oppose it.
Science in under threat.
History is under threat.
Free society is under threat.
Any members of the Committee here today who are unfamiliar with my written submission, I would ask you to read it.
I thank you for hearing my submission today. I appreciate the fact that some of you may not have liked what I said, I would only say that in itself is why Free speech is so important to a democracy.
A true Democracy allows unpopular opinions and criticisms of the powers that be to be herd in the public sphere.
Only then are the voting public able to freely weigh up all sides of any issue… and vote accordingly.
Fully informed, not merely being uncritically force fed the propaganda of those in power who desire to limit the peoples access to hearing alternative views.
