Jacinda Ardern is baking a tyrant’s cake
The adage above has been proved true on so many occasions, and not the least in South America right now where various collapsing and corrupt socialist regimes are grimly hanging onto power.
Will we face a similar crisis in New Zealand? After what we witnessed on the forecourt of Parliament yesterday, with Police shooting rubber bullets at citizens who just want to go to work, any rational person would be very worried.
Wellington protesters battle with Jacinda’s Police. (Chantelle Baker’s live feed) The bulk of protesters turned their backs on the police to signify they eschewed violence. There are claims that most of the anti-police violence the media focused on was initiated by ANTIFA infiltrators
The recipe for one party socialist tyranny depends on a number of key ingredients. They are-
- a compliant and willing media
- a corrupt and brutal police force
- a submissive opposition
- at least 50-60% of the population miseducated and unknowingly living as gullible manipulated knuckle draggers
- an overall population demoralised and divided
- a government made up of morally dysfunctional far left goons and led by a psychopathic liar preferably with years of training in how to turn a pluralist democracy into a one party state
Stir it all together and there’s your socialist tyranny. You’ve seen Venezuela. You’ve seen so many other examples of one party despotism and the resulting societal collapse. Its happening right here today in New Zealand as we sit and watch, and never was there a greater warning given than the brutality that occurred yesterday on the forecourt of our parliament.
Ardern claims the Police acted independently. A sensible person would be sceptical. Coster is the PM”s hand picked Police Commissioner. He got the job over a more experienced officer because Ardern wanted him there.
Even if we accept the unlikely scenario that the brutality was not ordered personally by Ardern, it is beyond question that she telegraphed her wishes to the Commissioner by means of her compliant lapdog media.
They have shown nothing but intractable contempt for the protesters since the day the convoy started. At first they wouldn’t report on it at all. When they realised it was too big to ignore, they went into full bore attack mode, and have been in that mode for the whole 22 days so far.
The lies and smears just came down in torrents, and anyone doubting it was all co-ordinated by the PM’s media division would have to be one of the typically gullible knuckle draggers noted above.
The narrative pushed by the progressive-left activists who pose as our media followed the PM’s rhetoric exactly, and included the additional refrain that the police “just had to do something soon”.
So as Ardern finally sweeps away any doubt that she is the tyrannical socialist despot we always knew she was, what about that other essential ingredient, the submissive opposition?
Both National leader Christopher Luxon and ACT leader David Seymour couldn’t wait to use the same violent rhetoric as the PM in dismissing the protesters. In fact, they scrambled to sign the PM’s initial decree saying she would not acknowledge what she termed an “illegal protest”.
A decree that set the scene for everything that happened afterward and especially the violence of yesterday and last night. Luxon and Seymour, if they’d half a brain between them, should never have put their name to the statement. Especially Seymour, but he was as limp as a plastic straw in a blast furnace.
So how the hell do we escape the fate that looks to be steaming down on us like an out of control express train? We need to somehow dismantle everything listed above that is allowing Ardern her victories.
Its not easy, but it must begin with repairing the education system. Taking it out of socialist control and starting to teach kids knowledge again.
Its almost funny. We were desperately focused on and fearful of Covid19, when the far more dangerous virus was Jacinda Ardern, and she was elected twice. The second time by popular vote.
Russian dissident Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said while imprisoned in the gulags that “we simply deserved everything that happened after”. He was talking about the Soviet Union, but its a pretty accurate assessment of New Zealand today.
Fifty years of an incremental socialist march through our institutions, and we did little (if anything) to stop them. Now, we’re in their death grip.
Then again, that could well be what the protest is really about.
