From a Conservative Party press release-
“The idea of allocating special ownership rights to any person or group is unwise. As New Zealanders we are tired of the continual litigation and bargaining that promotes and encourages division.”
Yes we are..!!!
This is what the National Party should have been saying years ago.
And it is important to recognise that even when Craig’s press release has been prompted by the water rights debate, this is a statement that has wide ranging political and legal impact in other areas where legal title is important.
For example, it can also be applied to land.
There should only be one title to land, and to pretend that others have rights to the same land through any other title (such as “customary” title) is completely wrong.
Here is a practical example of why it is wrong-
An oil exploration company wants to drill on a farmer’s property. So the company negotiates with that farmer to enter his property and drill their well.
Simple right? Except it does not work that way. Present NZ law requires an extension to that process.
Along comes a group of people of no special distinction other than claiming to be of a certain race, and who claim to be the “customary owners” of that land, and force the exploration company to jump through all kinds of hoops before they will also give their permission for the company to enter the property.
They can actually legally challenge any agreement that the farmer may already have with the company. Just like a state sanctioned Mafia.
Craig’s statement suggests that the Conservative Party would require wide changes to policy from the National Party cowards if they wanted him as a coalition partner.
No wonder the National Party and the rest of the left are so intent on destroying Colin Craig, perhaps the only force in NZ politics capable of inserting some steel into the jellyified spines of John Key and his group of progressive impostors.
Thanks to Crusader Rabbit and The Gantt Guy for bringing this to my attention.
Dear old David likes to dress up as right winger. Or at least describe himself as “center right’.
Yet if there’s ever any social issue to be discussed he’s on the left’s side.
If we differ, he’s right there pissing on our legs, and telling us we’re on fire.
Now you would think that anyone who was ever even the slightest bit right wing would advocate for smaller government over large.
Not so our Davey. Yesterday he said we should have 40 more MPs.
The size of Parliament should be increased to 160.
Shocking right? But that’s not all. One tenet of right wing philosophy (and I use that phrase loosely) is that nobody should be treated specially by law.
What’s our “right of center” Davey say about that?
“The alternative to Maori seats should be a lower threshold for parties representing Maori interests” and..
“All local authorities should have non-voting representatives of local Iwi on them, who have the same support and access as Councillors..”
He’s even partial to the Treaty of Waitiangi becoming supreme law-
“The Treaty of Waitangi should not be supreme law unless there is a mechanism to amend it.”
I have said it for some time, and I will say it again now- the problem with NZ politics is that we have imposters posing as right wingers and thereby preventing discussion from moving outside of the narrow spectrum of discussion “approved” by the power holding “Progressive” status quo.
We urgently need a non-left non-Progressive political alternative in NZ.
Unless you’re happy with more of the same racist Progressive bullshit for the next few decades.
I’m pleased to see there is rising resistance within NZ to separatism, but it is disappointing to also observe that many who are speaking out apparently believe, against all the evidence, that John Key and National will do something to stop the rot.
John Key and National have always been as big a part of the problem as anything else or any other party. In fact a lot worse than some.
National Party policy has always been to kowtow to separatist forces. In fact Key drew the race based euphemistically named Maori Party into government when he didn’t need to.
John Key is also on the public record as endorsing the flying of the separatist flag over Auckland Harbour bridge.
No, the answer does not lie in the National Party, at least not as it presently stands.
I’m mildly surprised that the Conservative Party hasn’t made some kind of policy statement confronting separatism. My own belief is that if they were to do so, it would bring them certain parliamentary representation in the next election.
Jane Luskin was the craven cultural Marxist who interrogated NZ citizen Louis Crimp on TV3 concerning his recent attempts to criticise the “Maorification of NZ by the revolving door Labour and National governments.
Crimp is not all that articulate, or though if you listen hard, amongst all the prejudicial cutting of the interview by the Progressive propagandists who call themselves reporters and run that dirty little viper’s nest of Marxists called the TV3 newsroom, he doesn’t do too bad.
In the entirely fantastic event that I would have been interviewed by the nauseatingly wet liberal Luskin, here’s how I would have responded to her lame and predictable remarks and questions-
Luskin- (speaking of the haka and the Maori World Cup opening Ceremony)
“(it’s) Highly symbolic of something that generates a lot of pride among NZers.
You only need to look at the response to the rugby world cup and the opening ceremony and say that it got praise from around the world including Kiwis living overseas, you sorta can’t argue with that.”
“Well you can argue with that and I will if that’s OK you horrible little fascist anti-free speech PC Marxist. Even if I agree with the premise of your question (which I don’t) since when was this a country where it is forbidden to hold unfashionable viewpoints?
You have no evidence to support your claim that the ceremony was supported by the majority of NZers. Why don’t you hold a referendum on your program and test that assertion?”
Crimp then went on to say that even though Maori were only 15% of the general population, they made up 52% of the jail population.
“Don’t you have to look at the causes behind that?”
“The causes are obvious to anyone who is not a PC liberal like you Jane, and they’re that Maori commit an inordinate amount of crime compared to the rest of the NZ population. Why are you so anxious to conceal that truth?”
They then discussed government funding of the development of Maori language, with Crimp objecting to the amount of money being spent on this project. This really upset Luskin-
“Its an offical language of NZ. But it was the first language spoken in NZ so why would you object? The original inhabitants weren’t the British.”
“I don’t care a damn if its official, or was proclaimed to be so by some gutless pandering politician somewhere. If I don’t approve of taxpayer money being spent on this damn farce I will say so and I don’t care a jot that its an offical language or not, given I don’t agree with that proclamation anyway.
Furthermore the language that is being pushed today as “Maori” was not necessarily the “first language spoken in NZ”. There is no way you can know if that is true. Given the uncertainty over previous settlements, the first language spoken in NZ could have been any language. Another thing- the language spoken back then probably bears little resemblance to what “Maori” claim as their language today.
So what if the first inhabitants were not the British, English is the world language and the language of commerce, and if there is any money to be spent on teaching people a language it should be spent on English given that standards are so atrocious in schools today.”
Crimp said (in response to Luskins statement concerning the British being the first inhabitants) that at the time, “there were only a few savages around”.
“Is that how you see people now as savages?”
“That’s not what I said. Please do not try and put words in my mouth. I said they were savages then, and this is a claim born out by many reports of cannibalism and tribal conflict from those days. It comes back to the core of my original objection. Why highlight and use a ritual that harks back to those savage days to open the Rugby World Cup?”
“Do you understand why some people find this extremely offensive?”
“I’m not the least bit worried about “offending” people. I speak what I believe to be the truth and if some are offended by that then too bad. It is better that people are encouraged to speak truth rather than hide it because somebody somewhere may be “offended”. This is a policy that would lead to a country being awash in lies, just as NZ is today.
Now get out of my face you disgusting pandering Marxist sycophant.”
BTW, what did Luskin say to Crimp that prompted him to ask the question about sex against a tree? I notice this did not make the air. C’mon Jane, tell us what you said.
Crabs do a lot of scuttling. If you’ve ever walked around some rocky shore and happened on a group of them basking in the sun, I’m sure you will have noticed the sudden rattle of shell on rock as they all simultaneously dart furtively back into the crevices they crawled out of.
The white liberals and Marxists who infest the National Party (and ACT, but who cares right?) remind me of those crabs, as they scuttle in fright from the words of Louis Crimp, a refreshingly un-PC New Zealander who spoke out in plain language this weekend on what some call the “Maorification” of NZ.
Plain language is something that is starkly absent from today’s political dialogue, because it frightens the excrement out of the left. Rather we must, if we want to speak that way, glance about to see who is in earshot, lower our voices, and talk in guarded tones, in case a PC Police volunteer is nearby.
Not so Mr. Crimp, who spoke out plainly and loudly and bravely and had his words printed in that cowardly scumbag newspaper the NZ Herald, in an article written by a Communist greaser and political activist who poses as a journalist and has conducted a campaign against the hapless ACT party for some time.
So then we have the reactions of the so called right wing blogs- No Minister, Whale Oil Beef Hooked and Kiwiblog all did the quick crab scuttle in frantic attempts to distance themselves from the startlingly frank words of Louis Crimp.
They fell over themselves in a race to sling that fashionable Marxist label “RACIST”. “Oh dear” wails the wettest of the wet liberals, David Farrar. “This article is disgusting” declares ACT wrecker Nick Kearney. The confused Marxist Cameron Slater does them all proud with the declaration that “Louis Crimp is a goat’s knob“.
Meanwhile John Key’s sickening pandering to the separatist Maori Party completely escapes the censure of these self professed right wingers. Rather they applaud the fascist style political ascension of a race based group of NZers to a social level above that of every other NZer. They remain mute over separatists like John Key’s good friend Pita Sharples who said in March 2009-
“Why are we fighting whakapapa against whakapapa? There’s so much enemy that isn’t brown.”
Marxists want to destroy NZ’s traditional culture and replace it with Marxist culture. As a means to this destruction, we must be broken into separate groups and made to fight amongst ourselves.
So far the strategy is working beyond their wildest dreams, and with the enthusiastic help of scuttling politically crosswired idiots like Whale, Farrar and Kearney, they’re well on the way to turning NZ into a model Marxist society where evil recalcitrants like Lous Crimp do not exist or if they do, have been safely caged in re-education camps.
All this intense and craven condemnation of Louis Crimp by the National Party surrender-is always-the-best-option cheer squad is just another indicator of how that party has lost its way and doesn’t deserve your vote at the next election. They’re a pack of spineless politically confused scuttling Marxist crustaceans who just do not get it.
They’re only pretending to be right wing and an alternative to the left, while being just as Marxist at heart as the next socialist drongo, and that is why we’re better off without them.
Has that Deborah Coddington developed into the most asinine person or what? Look at these paragraphs from her Herald column today- absolute fairy tale rubbish-
But Australia still hasn’t solved the problem of equality, partnership and legislating for advancement of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders, though there is an ongoing campaign to try to involve the entire country in dealing with this.
In terms of financial wealth, Australia is financially better off, but they could learn something from us in terms of respecting tangata whenua. Yes, the English ripped off the Maori, too, when it came to getting them to sign the Treaty of Waitangi. Henry Williams deliberately mistranslated from Maori to English to protect his land holdings, and numerous other travesties were perpetrated.
But I know where I’d rather live. We can’t go back, only forward, and guilt gets nobody anywhere.
Now I’m all for Christmas bonuses, but should they be given out when taxpayers are footing the bill? Even worse, should they be given out in the case of completely unnecessary government operations like Maori TV? A separatist operation established to drive a wedge into NZ’s race relations.
Everyone working at Maori TV (staff 150) is to be given a $1000 bonus. The NZ Herald reports-
The station, which receives about $50 million of its funding from government agency Te Mangai Paho, as well as a direct government grant, could afford the increase because projections for the financial year included running a $32,000 surplus, Mr Mather said.
Now what strikes me as strange about these kind of actions is the apparent ignorance of those running organisations like Maori TV as to how much resentment there is today at government taking more and more in taxes, and wasting that money so taken on extravagances like this. Read more »
