Farmers have the power to stop it all
When Green Party leader James Shaw says we don’t need any local version of France’s “Yellow vest” protests, you can pretty much bet your house that is exactly what we need.
The Yellow Vests were a watershed political movement in France and their major success was in taking the microphone away from elitist green leftists and putting it back in the hands of the working and productive classes.
That is why Shaw dreads a similar protest movement rising in New Zealand. He doesn’t want his own microphone taken from him by real New Zealanders who will suffer the most from his economically damaging climate change policies. The MSM reports Shaw as saying-
“…the experience of France was important: the country had high enthusiasm for addressing climate change but a large growth in carbon taxes ended up sparking nationwide “Gilet Jaunes” or yellow-vest protests. A NZ government that sparked similar protests would lose social licence and be forced to halt any plans to address climate change.“
Read that last sentence again. Shaw is admitting that a large scale offensive by farmers would cause the govt to lose social license and halt its plans to address climate change. Because he’s a global communist/ Marxist Shaw thinks this is bad, but real people, farmers most of all, must see this as an ideal outcome.
So we the people must support farmers, and urge them to upscale their fight against green insanity. Farmers themselves must also back the protest groups that are springing up frustrated at the Federated Farmers organisation and their cronyist style complicity in Labour’s dictatorial assault on farming.
One such protest group is Groundswell NZ, who are the prime organisers of next weeks nationwide protests, called “The Howl of Protest”. Shaw referred to them as “a group of pakeha farmers down south spreading misinformation”. The word “misinformation” is in the Green Party lexicon a code word for truth.
Another group is the Agricultural Action Group, who take a more holistic approach and are attacking the global forces and UN covenants that direct the govt’s policy making decisions. Both groups have authentic and coherent protest platforms.
The Labour/Green/left movement has already launched attacks on these groups and will be doing all they can to discredit and disrupt their protests. Look out for the usual lying and cheating and cowardly misrepresentation that are always the preferred tactics of the left and their end justifies the means dogma.
