The cancellation of Lee Williams
What happened to Lee Williams makes hate speech laws superfluous. When corporates and MPS and govt contractors and bought off media can destroy a man and his livelihood merely for holding a contrary opinion, why the need for laws?
Not that Lee Williams committed any hate speech crimes. We know that because he was never charged. So therefore it doesn’t matter that we don’t know the detail of what he said, for if he had said anything “bad”, he would have been arrested and charged.
Everything he said therefore must have been within the law.
Apparently Mr Williams was critical of the falsely named “Maori” Party, and made videos mocking its MPS. If ever any MPs needed mocking it is these two pontificating fraudulent narcissists. However you can’t do mocking in NZ today, unless maybe its an opposition MP.
Which is sad in a way. Once art was all about challenging the powerful, pointing out hypocrisy and falsity. Which meant it mostly targeted the govt. However most so called art in NZ today is in praise of the govt. Just like it was in Soviet Russia, and still is in China and Nth Vietnam.
Whatever it was Williams said, it didn’t break the law, but he was still punished. Powerful Maori Party MPs on a couple of hundred thousand dollars a year and with a multitude of staff at their disposal helped in organising a petition to get Mr Williams fired from his job driving a truck for milk powder processing company Synlait.
The petition was set up by highly paid employees and contractors associated with Creative New Zealand, a govt organisation dispensing taxpayer money into the “arts” community. Its actually socialist propaganda central where employees trample each other underfoot to earn the favour of the govt.
Synlait fired Mr Williams yesterday. They made a profit in 2020 of $72 million but are facing losses of around $30 million this year. Synlait have received grants totalling $918,234 from the Ardern govt, purportedly for research and employing interns. You can bet that if the govt wanted Synlait to fire one of its employees, they wouldn’t hesitate.
Westpac told Mr Williams he must close his bank account, as they didn’t want his business. Its unknown exactly how much business the rich and powerful Westpac does with the govt but it is undoubtedly substantial. They wouldn’t put all that at risk for the sake of one measly truck driver’s account.
Most mainstream media have disgustingly cheered for Lee William’s persecution. Quote “He has attended “Freedom” and “Liberty” rallies in both Auckland and in Christchurch.” Unquote. They are all receiving millions from the govt in subsidies and grants.
Straight out of Orwell’s 1984 Mr Williams is today, in “democratic” New Zealand a non-citizen. A truck driver cancelled by the rich and powerful working with govt and their agencies.
Lee Williams has been disappeared, and virtually no one has said the slightest thing about it. Which is the way it was in East Berlin, circa 1960.
