  1. The openness expressions here. while shutting down others, try to continue full on also in our universities.

    these bastions of righteousness in which white males are blamed for most things are having difficulty recruiting white males. Why does that matter? “Once the men stop attending,” he noted, “then women don’t want to enroll.” ….
    A teacher at Marlboro:-

    He brings an intersectional lens grounded in social justice praxis to the classroom and is passionate about racial, gender and LGBTQ justice and issues of representation in film.
    Brad believes that the Western film canon is essentially a survey of what bell hooks calls “the imperialist white-supremacist capitalist patriarchy.”
    Any creative work that we do must reckon with this history of oppression, extract from it what serves us, and dismantle and discard what does not.

    Hampshire College’s Commitment to Diversity:-

    At Hampshire diversity encompasses multiple and intersecting identities including but not limited to race, class, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, religious expression, physical and mental abilities, military and veteran status, and political expression.
    We aspire to foster an inclusive community of individuals who share a commitment to all forms of anti-oppression, social justice, respectful discourse, and engagement.

    …. It doesn’t sound as though a white male wearing an MAGA hat would be considered welcome (“respectful”) diversity!
    Thus, these schools are fighting over the handful of young men who are
    (a) rich enough to pay tuition for a non-vocational degree,
    (b) sympathetic to the idea that they are perpetrating abuse of women, minorities, etc.

    Full on woke, going broke.
    This is full on in Holly wood circles, as many films bomb, but they double down and stay with the agenda

  2. Waikato Mongrel Mob claims new gun reforms are ‘racist’
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/11/waikato-mongrel-mob-claims-new-gun-reforms-are-racist.html

    “”It’s gone from a white male shooter who shot dead 51 people to now a gang problem, so we know that inherently that this legislation is racist,” she told Newshub.

    Labour MP Kiri Allen challenged whether the mob was speaking for everyone.”

    “The Mongrel Mob is arguing the ban is hypocritical – banning them from owning military-style semi-automatics while giving them to our police force.

    Also taking aim at the opposition’s plan to introduce elite police forces – modelled on Australia’s Strike Force Raptor – to target gangs

    “There’s already enough pressures out in our communities in terms of housing and homelessness and finance and putting food on the table, yet to be pulled up and hassled and terrorised by New Zealand police,” said Hutchinson.”

  3. New Zealand First dwarfing Greens in executive expenses
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/11/new-zealand-first-dwarfing-greens-in-executive-expenses.html

    “The Green Party’s executive members in government – James Shaw, Eugenie Sage, Julie Anne Genter and Jan Logie – spent a grand total of $80,827 from July to September.

    New Zealand First’s executive members – Winston Peters, Shane Jones, Tracey Martin, Ron Mark and Fletcher Tabuteau – spent $300,016 during the same period.”

    • Okay, NZF is bad. But even the Greens – $20,000 per person for a 3 month period in executive expenses? The same for ACT. Even Jamie Lee Ross spent $15,000? What is that fucker doing that justifies sucking so much money out of our pocket?

      Let’s put this into perspective, friends.

      The average income was $49,000 in 2015 according to the CTU. I’m too lazy to go searching more now, so … call it an even $4500 per month maybe in 2019. Without any benefits included, that is roughly $830 per month, or $9,960 per year.

      It will take that poor tax-payer 110 years to pay back what the National party spent on expenses over a 3 month period. But that poor sap is going to spend 150 years to pay Labour’s spend back and a whopping 202 years to cover what our friendly coalition spent in 3 months.

      I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and fucking tired of covering this type of shit for fat, troughing piggies.

      • Agree, representation, such as we get, is coming at an appallingly high price. And for me the issue is about representation, an example is the gun grab set off by a PM with ulterior motives seized upon by an over zealous Police HQ. There was no mandate given by voters for that excessive and ongoing action. No party manifesto that I read said we are going to do this.

        So what else are these over compensated non representatives spending on without mandate?

        The expenses claims are the bottom end of a very large iceberg representing waste of taxpayer effort for scant useful result.

  4. Just for the ones who like seeing a few tractors on the roads of capital cities. 🙂

    https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/11/27/protesting-farmers-8600-tractors-paralyse-german-capital/

    So are the consumers in Europe supporting the importation of lamb, beef, mutton, wool, dairy products etc. by removing tariffs from a New Zealand that is including NZ farmlands in the zero carbon emissions, with many other regulations over water, fertilizer, feeds, cropping etc…?

    Perhaps those protesting farmers should cash those tractors in and plant trees?
    The consumer can gnaw away for the cellulose nutrients. A diet of prunings. 🙂

  5. With the holiday season approaching many will enjoy a few drinks. To stay safe its important to observe the (new) law:

    1. Rape and sexual assaults are fine if you are drunk.
    2. Say you didn’t find it gratifying. Tell the police she was a dud root- for example.
    3. If you did enjoy it, say she was asking for it.
    4. Show your Labour Party membership card and name drop.

    In the unlikely event of the police charging you – these tips form the elements of a complete defense.

      • Like on the Simpsons, Judge Snyder: Judge Mr-Cullens-Brother-In-Law decrees, ‘Boys will be boys!’
        https://comb.io/njMdU3

        Sometimes the truth is the funniest comedy around.
        Ignorance of the law is no excuse. But being drunk is.
        Does that apply to drunk driving?

        Like the unintentionally funny statement earlier ”He brings an intersectional lens grounded in social justice praxis to the classroom” – you couldn’t make this shit up.

        I am glad that Dave Chapelle has been able to stand up and make jokes about those that you cannot joke about. The media and critics hate it. The public loves it.
        Turning the reality into a joke is the only way to slap people around the ears and let them realise just how absurd it has all become.

    • I cannot believe that result of the Liebor youth camp sex offender. Alcohol can be now used for any manner of unlawful behaviour, and why the hell not? It is a disgrace what NZ have come to in the space of just 2 and a bit years of this col. WTF will it be like if the col receive another term? I feel so sick for this country, its turning into a place I simply cannot understand. Is this what the soldiers who went to WW1 and 11 fought for, gave of their lives for or do we not care ay more? I suppose the other sexual matter will be done away with, as par for the course, it says a lot for the future safety of women and men in NZ. Will the disgusting prick who bashed the mother of 8 this last week be able to say he was drunk? drugged?. Not his fault, maybe the judge will feel sorry for him too. I am interested in hearing what the Mee Too movement have to say about this. It wood be amazing if they come out saying anything at all about their beloved liebor party.

      • Others have said it but it is worth hammering the point…….had any publican or nightclub owner allowed those four kids to set foot on their premises, never mind get pissed, the cops would have had their base licences & managers licences in the bin within a month.

        As Kea has pointed out. There’s one law for the Labour Party & their mates & another for the rest of us!

        She is not about stopping sexual violence. She is simply a far left man hater with a hidden agenda.

  6. Barely sober comments that it was really notrhing at all. Apparently he has been grooped in the past. (gah that makes me gag).

    He and She actually miss the point. Two in fact.
    firstly it was an aaault on persons which was not welcome and more importantly that the organizers, i.e. the Labour Party supplied unlimited alcohol to under age minors without informing their parents i would be made available and without proper supervision.
    That is what led to the assults.

    NO ONE HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH BREAKING THE LAW REGARDING THE SUPPLY OF ALCOHOL.

    Compare that to the way in which the constbulary are whinging anf moaning and endeavouring to shut down every other legal supplier of alcohol.

    One is left with the clear understanding that the Law is for others and not those in Labour who continually break the Law.

  7. A leftie and a conservative enter a bar. They sit down and each one orders a beer. After a while, they start to talk about immigration policy. They start to argue if New Zealand needs immigrants or not.
    After a few hours when it looks like both used all arguments they could find to sustain their position, the leftie says:
    “You know, Trevor is the living proof that New Zealand needs immigrants.”
    “How so?” responds the conservative.
    The Leftie: “Well, Trevor was married three time until now. 2 out 3 of his wives or around 67% of them were immigrants. That a clear sign that New Zealand needs immigrants to occupy the jobs the Kiwi women aren’t willing to do!”

    • I mentioned the cynicism of her act on another blog yesterday and a reply came back saying Air NZ –Rob Fyfe, apologised in 2009 (30th anniversary) and JK was there at the same time.
      So for her to say –“the time has come” for an apology is absolute BS.

    • Now that SLG has delivered an emotional apology over the AirNZ flight 901, there are a few other disasters that should be apologsed for:
      Tangiwai
      Brunner Mine disaster
      The Little Waihi Landslides of 1780 and 1846
      The Wahine shipwreck
      Featherston PoW camp riot
      Ralph’s Mine accident
      Ballantynes store fire
      Seacliff fire
      Kaitangata Mine explosion
      NAC flight 441
      Hyde railway disaster
      Strongman Mine explosion
      Cave Creek
      Aramoana
      Carterton hot air balloon crash
      Glen Afton mine CO asphyxiation
      Flu pandemics of 1918 and 2009

      That should keep the earnest face in the news for a while.

          I wouldn’t hold my breath for any apology from Peters for leading Winston First to the only port open to him.

    Doud Wead is described as a Presidential historian as he has interviewed and written books about 6 Presidents. The video is an interview with him about writing his latest, on Trump. Trump gave him full access to all in the White House including his family.

  12. Congestion charges only work for the rich – road safety campaigner
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/11/congestion-charges-only-work-for-the-rich-road-safety-campaigner.html

    “A road safety campaigner is backing the Government’s reluctance to introduce congestion charging in Wellington, saying it’ll only stop the poor from driving – not the rich.”

    “Underlying the proposed congestion charges is a class system where richer people get premium access to the same roads that poor people can’t afford to use.”

    So we won’t even be able to drive on the roads we pay for.

    Instead he’s proposing restricting “the fastest lanes” on commuter routes to traffic carrying three or more people – saying this will encourage people to ride-share.

    “If vehicles carrying multiple occupants get to work quicker, then other drivers have a powerful incentive to also share their vehicles… Everyone – rich or poor – has to change their behaviour if they want to travel quickly.”

  13. Labour MP thanks National’s teen candidate William Wood for ‘speaking up’ against attack ad
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/11/labour-mp-thanks-national-s-teen-candidate-william-wood-for-speaking-up-against-attack-ad.html

    “I don’t entirely get the point of this attack ad…” the 17-year-old wrote on November 17. “They’re just trying to help explain what the select committee process is which I think is a good thing coming from National or Labour…”

    He told Newshub this week he was “simply a touch confused as to what the purpose [of the ad] was”, adding that he “fully supports holding the Government to account and [has] no issue with the ad at all”.

    Michael Wood, Labour’s Senior Whip, told Newshub he was grateful to the 17-year-old for expressing his views about the attack ad.”

    Oh, how lovely of the boy. //

        I said 20 nine mm rounds and I’ll provide the receptacle…………He laughed and laughed.

    • Stephen Franks says in his article for NZCPR:

      “There is a great need for careful reflective investigation independent of a Police force that has become nakedly engaged in political advocacy.”

      There can be absolutely no need for police to be armed with military style weapons such as these .308 rifles.
      https://www.facebook.com/VickersGuide/photos/lmt-defense-contract-rifle-for-the-national-new-zealand-police-featuring-a-135-b/2554084478013278/
      I do not believe the police should have any access to firearms that the general public, with the usual licencing and vetting scrutiny of course, are not able to legally own. This goes back the one of the basic Peel principles that “the police are the public and the public are the police.”

      We do not need a para military police force in this country and I would suggest that most New Zealanders would recoil in horror at the thought of such a thing. We are not yet a province of Communist China and the CCP does not rule us yet though they may well have made a down payment on a good number of our politicians.

      • Agree with the political advocacy flaw of the current police, but there are people (gangs and crims/non-law abiding firearms possessors) who will shoot at a cop for a traffic stop.
        I think the police should have access to arms. No need to spend 30-40 mins returning for their kit.
        In the states, there are times where an offender has been shot dead in 2 mins, and avoided worse mass shooting (can give examples if you like).
        Good man with guns stops bad man with guns.
        That said, I have my own firearms and want to keep them. I still in general appreciate what the cops do. The people who should be worried are the crims, not me.
        I dont think we need worry about shootings like the Black Live Matter people point to, some of which were actually justified and others not…
        Just my opinion, but permanent Special Tactics police being around doesn’t make be feel scared. Overseas you will see cops with shotguns and SMGs and it actually means you are safer. Firearms in themselves dont scare me.

    • The Order of St John is next, presumably as the woke Left seek to bury Western history in the name of Islamic appeasement that the Muslims don’t even fucking want. How insane is New Zealand now?

      You are the Crusaders. A rugby team founded in 1996 to compete in the Super Rugby competition. You have dress-up knights on horses at your matches, your colours are red and black and white. There’s nothing wrong with any that.

      Or are we going to change the colours because red is the colour of communism and Mao and Stalin killed 10s of millions of people between them?

      How far are you lunatics willing to go?

    • Just thinking about this makes me furious.

      We have a Prime Minister that hides sexual assault in her office. We have a police force that covers for drug users. We have an immigration minister that protects the drug suppliers. We have a coalition leader that takes money under the table to buy policy. We have a judge that is delivering Labour Party elites with favourable verdicts. We have progressive women who ignore sexual abuse because it happened under the Labour Party. (Yes, that’s you Alison M)

      And people are getting their knickers in a twist over the name of a rugby team?

  15. ‘They demonise themselves’: National MP Mark Mitchell defends gang crackdown in heated debate
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2019/11/they-demonise-themselves-national-mp-mark-mitchell-defends-gang-crackdown-in-heated-debate.html

    MP Mark Mitchell defended National’s proposed crackdown on gangs in a heated debate with a media commentator who described the party’s proposal as “garbagy brain-fart”.

    Martyn ‘Bomber’ Bradbury, a New Zealand media commentator, joined National’s justice spokesperson on Magic Talk radio Friday afternoon to discuss the party’s law and order policy.

    Released earlier this week, the consultation document proposed an elite police force that would target and “harass” gangs in New Zealand, modelled off New South Wales’ ‘Strike Force Raptor’ unit.

    • So what is missing from the headline is the gist of the interview.

      “National, I don’t think your approach will work. But it is better than Lavours, because they have nothing. Zip. Nada.”

      Of course, for the tabloid headlines itbis all about National, and not about how Jacinda Ardern and her Labour Party are failing Kiwis.

  16. Snowflakes: An Educational Problem

    But in counterattack, it is also used for evident parody, as displayed in November 2019 by a fake ad posted by the Oscar Café Bar in Dublin.

    The ad stated the bar was currently recruiting for an experienced snowflake, self-entitled, oversensitive, self-righteous, and passionate, who has the ability to find and take offence for the most innocuous things imaginable. The candidate does not need to be able to work as part of a team, as some of the best work will be done alone, anonymously, and from the successful candidate’s bedroom. The ideal candidate should possess no willingness to consider controversial or opposing views.

    • Bn, thanks, as losing “free speech” dramatically changes Western Civilization.
      The mainstream of Germany’s society, the EU, and much of the Western world, seem to very much follow these policies,
      Sadly very believable of Angela Merkel.

      Angela Merkel says: we have to take away your freedom of speech, or else society won’t be free.

      Why do academia, politicians, educationalists, media, largely follow and support this? 🙁
      Debate, discuss, Reason, find the facts, so the truth can stand!
      It is becoming where “Truth is No Defense” as being experienced in the EU.

      How can one convince people to see things in a broader context? to figure on learning more information, and then processing that for deeper understanding, to gain some wisdom?

  18. Bethlehem City Council Department of Social Care:

    Childs Name: Jesus O’Nazareth

    Parental Report:

    Mother – Delusional: claims to converse with people who can fly. Behaviour possibly an indication of prolonged narcotics use.

    Father – Absent/Unknown.Step Father – Of limited IQ. Does not understand where babies come from. Seems unperturbed about his wife’s obvious infidelity.

    Living Conditions – The family reside in a dilapidated out-building & the child was found sharing the accommodation with a number of animals. The place was dirty and un-heated. The parents were throwing wild parties & had invited all the local shepherds around (not a suitable environment for a baby).

    Observations – During our inspection, three mature gentlemen approached the parents with very expensive gifts – we are concerned about their motives as several paedophile rings operate in this area.

    Action – Child taken into care.
