Disappointing to see even more evidence of the National Party’s subservience to cultural Marxism in Hekia Parata’s latest press release. She’s on the women’s “equality” bandwagon and putting so many arguments out there (about “unfair” treatment) that have long ago been so widely discredited I have to think Hekia must have been living in a cave for a decade or two. She’s also apparently suffering from the usual Progressive blindness in terms of the unintended consequences of women’s increasing tendency to work rather than to give birth and care for their children.
“The single largest contribution to New Zealand’s improved productivity in the past 30 years has come from women’s increased labour market participation,
I don’t really know how she would quantify that, but the real issue is what about the damn social effects Hekia? And just do some damn research will you? You will find there are plenty of good reasons for women earning less than men, and not getting promoted as fast as men, and none of them have anything at all to do with “unfairness”. Its because being women, they have an entirely different set of values and priorities to men, which do not allow women to dedicate themselves to their work and career the way a man does. It is that simple.
“Similarly, we are not making enough of women’s leadership skills and experience. For instance, 57 of the top 100 publicly listed companies do not have a single woman on their boards, despite evidence that companies with women on boards tend to be significantly more profitable than those with few or no women.’’
Having women on boards automatically makes companies more profitable? What insulting patronising rubbish. If a company’s board can take any reward for the success of a company, its because of that board’s business acumen and talent, and nothing to do with what their damn gender makeup is.
Hekia Parata is the wrong damn candidate, she should never have been selected, and with values that suggest a strong belief in cultural Marxism, she should be in the damn Labour party not weakening the resolve of National. And please, can someone stop her producing this blatant Marxist propaganda and claiming it as factual? Doesn’t anyone in National have the ability to detect this as rubbish and stop it getting out there? How hopeless does someone have to be at National before something is done about it?
