Are the Ardernistas and Greens living on Planet Stupid?
“The Captains and the Kings depart…”
When the very fine artist, critic and columnist Giles Auty died recently in Australia, viewing with regret what had happened to his adopted country – and aware that we in New Zealand are in even worse straits – we lost one of those very few still standing to fight the corruption of these times. How have ignorance and stupidity – with or without deviousness – become a characteristic disease now in so many Western democracies?
Tragedy or comedy? It was impossible not to smile when recently listening to an LBC announcer in Britain recounting with incredulity the mindless behaviour of people there. Almost lost for words, trying to understand what was taking place, he asked if they were living on Planet Stupid? Equally worriedly, he pointed out that they actually have the vote…
Living on Planet Stupid? This phase really sums the question so many New Zealanders have been asking for so long about more than a few of our politicians – in particular with regard to the global warming con, which Miss Ardern, the basically Marxist Greens and too many shockingly lazy MPs have swallowed, line and sinker.
Or have they? Given the challenge to the whole global warming hysteria, not only by well-informed scientists, but those apologising for having bought into it in the first place, we would be foolish to dismiss the Left’s – and indeed the Right’s – continued, culpable buy-in of this nonsense. What we need to remind ourselves is that promoting global warming alarmism has given governments the best of all opportunities to tax every single area of our economy – all industries, business, farming, development, transport, fuel…the campaign against the use of coal, the search for oil…Every individual New Zealander is being impoverished through increased taxation – costs past on to us – because of what is now recognised to have been a hugely exaggerated – in fact basically non-existent threat – to enrich the governments coffers.
What is particularly reprehensible is that even if the release of CO2 – this important gas, but minimally represented in the atmosphere – was drastically reduced in this country – it wouldn’t make one whit of difference to reducing global warming. Why are we being conned into politically imposed virtuousness, in no way at all reducing supposed global warming – while energy-hungry China and India are firing up more and more coal stations? Much smarter than this country, the US has withdrawn from the Paris Agreement, one in a line of treaties imposed by activists on the Left promoting alarmist propaganda. Given all the recent evidence challenging this, it’s high time for us to stand up to our politicians and demand an end to their lucrative tax gathering scam – because scam it basically is. Tell Jacinda – and tell James Shaw…
Another important issue, pushed by the usual suspects, is the attempt to try to rename this country Aotearoa – which was never even its Maori name. No matter, we are being manipulated by continuing pressure on politicians – and the only-too compliant, mischief-making and leftist media. It is yet another push from the Maori Supremacy movement, relying on the goodwill or laziness of New Zealanders to give up opposing it. A policy of appeasement? However, we should know just from history that appeasement never works: the demand increases – as has been happening continually with those from very few, but vocal, culturally bullying part- Maori extremists – who appear to have considerable ego problems. Although a distinct minority, their demands never stop. However, now great poetry has been removed from the school curriculum, the important reminder in Rudyard Kipling’s “Dane-geld” has been largely lost.
”And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we’ve proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane”..
A recent poll showed the majority of this country voting 70 to 30% against this radicalized, extremist push. However, under the guise of being nice to those with a chip on their shoulder, too many politicians, and virtue-signalling media commentators and business managers are joining in the attack on our country’s name – New Zealand.
This is all part of a deliberately orchestrated movement to gain more and more territory, inch by inch, for radicalised Maori – none of whom in fact are predominantly Maori at all, and who determinedly ignore the immense benefits that the introduction of civilisation brought to this country. It is not to their credit that they are dishonest enough to ignore and even disrespect their majority, non-Maori forebears.
It’s time to boycott Aotearoa-named companies and products that obligingly appease these radicals – and to point out that is culturally insensitive to not be addressed in the language everyone must understand – English – our important national and international language. Moreover, why should immigrants to this country – those from Asia, Europe, India, Cambodia, the Philippines, etc. already with their own primary language, be forced to compulsorily learn the newly invented, largely completely inauthentic “Maori” – as a result of what is basically cultural bullying? Competence in English is their and our prime need. Of course.
We are more than at the crossroads down the blind alleys of the racial, anti-white cultural bullying and the disproved nonsense of global warming.
It is that Miss Ardern is really so very ignorant? Or are there just so many opportunities for increased taxation and control by going along with this canard, Jacinda? Too many ignorant and compliant politicians have turned this country into an intellectual wasteland. All part of course, of the attack on our productive industries – and the destroying of our economy.
GK Chesterton pointed out that, “A tired democracy becomes a dictatorship.” And under Miss Ardern’s edicts and the Green party’s destructive agenda, this is arguably where are heading – a virtual dictatorship – control by a very few…
Yet it has never been easier to protest – and even a few dozen individuals – (it is always the individuals who count) – contacting Parliament – the readily available phone number is 04 817 9999 – and asking to be put forward to the office of the leader, or to any member of a political party, means that one can state one’s views – in support of – or against any stance – or proposed legislation.
What can you/we as an individual(s) be waiting for? In this critical lead-up to the election, listening to voters and soliciting their support is very important to all politicians. They are doing so. But are they only hearing from the extremists? As so very often…
We should not be leaving the fight against any ill-tide of the times to the great-hearted fighters like Giles Auty. Ultimately we are, and will be, judged on what we do – and what we omit to do.
Why not ring 04 817 9999 – or email Parliament…Or?..
What are you doing to help? And well done indeed if you are J
