Philip Matthews, as always, has an intelligent, well put together overview and response.
and Will Harvie presents Karl Popper's views as well.
I note that Matthew Hooton has had to swallow his callow words on PM Jacinda Ardern - he has previously said things like:
Like John Key on steroids, Ardern is well advised to keep well away from anything difficult and, for the next 18 months, just smile and wave.
from here March 8, 2019
and today is seen to be trying to be more tactful - but he just can't help himself:
For the Prime Minister, it is as if all her past life has been but a preparation for this hour and for this trial.
In the last week Jacinda Ardern has demonstrated the empathy of Ronald Reagan after the Challenger disaster and the steely resolve of Margaret Thatcher after the Brighton hotel bombing.
Consequently, New Zealand will heal faster than it may have otherwise. Recent immigrants and our well-established Muslim communities are hopefully now in no doubt where they stand with the overwhelming majority of their fellow citizens. With any luck, the Government's proposed gun control solution can command unanimity in the House.
The only heroes he has it seems are Reagan and Thatcher and then it's down hill from there as he turns it into an exhortation for his Neo Liberal clients to rise again.
What is it with Epsom?
- The 'elite private school' that eventually bowed to pressure to allow pupils to wear the hijab for one day only and David Seymour!
Interesting to note the traditional NZ gangs coming together and reaching out vs faux-bishop Tamaki and his black shirts preaching hate and division.
I have just stumbled upon a homegeown Facebook cesspit - run by one Vinny Eastwood - How does one get this in front of the police - he admits to watching, downloading and sharing the mosque attack video - then says he deleted it only because he wouldn't do well in prison - - he is claiming to some US podcast that it was a false flag attack, orchestrated to force gun control on NZ and beyond - the names of all his fan boys and girls and their vile comments should be noted and followed up on.
I won't link to it - but I'm sure it's very easily discoverable for legal purposes.
I can post some photo essays here,
I'd be interested, (maybe on a Capture thread might be better though) Gujarat sounds like a fascinating and ancient place - I believe there are Indus Valley / Harappan civilisation sites there and you'd be interested in the boatbuilding right on the shore - but it's a big region - enjoy.
“14.88 is a hate symbol popular with white extremists”, but no explanation why.
As I understand 88 means HH (8th letter) which means Heil Hit...etc
dunno about the '14'
I always thought it telling & apt (and wondered if it was deliberate) that Fox TV news is on channel 88 in NZ...
Also a link there to this similar prosecution:
and this guy who already has form...
Harking back to the original topic of this post – I note the spuriously named Taxpayers’ Union lobby group has got another of their crew into Stuff’s Opinion arena;
sadly the only attribution to Jim Rose’s bonafides to comment is just a link to his blog and no mention of his Taxpayers’ Union links – I suspect Stuff is merely being cynically used as a doorman for directing the innocent into Rose’s paean to capitalism and the rule of law (well the ones they support) and all that comes with that…
- is this helping I have to ask…?
28 years isn't a particularly long time
That's as long as it takes to grow an Australian psychopath from birth to multiple homicides...
you have to turn in 2 deer tails to the police every year
The Devil is always in the deer tails!
