Act – chick magnet and brown brothers?

Bring on the naivety?

Bring on the girls… Brash acts to fight white blokes image (Herald)

Act leader Don Brash says the party needs more young women and brown faces as candidates to more broadly represent New Zealand society at the election

Maybe he should ask John Ansell to run an advertiseing campaign that appeals to “young women and brown faces”.

It’s worth repeating the Ansell/Act attempts to attract voters in the weekend, in print:

In short, [ACT’s] catchment is men and women who think like men. Not men and women who think like women. ACT is the party of the strong father, not the soft mother.

(By strong father I include strong women like Rand, Richardson and Thatcher, and by soft mother I include weak men like Key.)

And on blogs:

The women who support ACT are not squeamish about speaking bluntly about rational issues (including racial issues). I respect them very much.

In short, they’ve got guts.

More typical women are less rational and more emotional. They’d rather preserve relationships than rock the boat. Is that not true?

If it were not for the female vote, Don Brash would have become prime minister in 2005 and we’d be a much more prosperous country today.

But women, by a reasonable margin, preferred to cuddle the various minority groups and spend more of other people’s money on welfare that to take the hard economic decisions. These ‘soft mothers’ voted for short-term gain and long-term pain.

The ‘strong fathers’, also by a reasonable margin, voted for short-term pain and long-term gain. The rational (or should that be Brashional) approach.

Now of course I’ll be branded misogynist as well as racist. But again, I’m just pointing out the simple truth.

The soft mother model doesn’t seem to be universal. In Britain, women ‘got’ Margaret Thatcher’s bold approach (a woman who thought like a man if ever there was one).

But in New Zealand, when it comes to strong policies that actually allow the country to move forward, the girls let the side down. Three terms of Clarxism was not a rational answer to any rational question.

New Zealand is awash with parties that represent the female view of the world: Labour, the Greens, the latter-day Nats.

But only ACT represents rational women and rational men. The party should not be ashamed to say so.

And that’s just the chick magnet, Ansell’s and Brash’s “brown face” attraction has been widely covered, since about 2004.

So chicks, if you have guts (not a Mackers mound), you’re not the “typical less rational and more emotional” sort of girl, you’re not into “cuddling minority groups”, and you can get on with a dysfunctional of old white men then give Don your number.

And if you have a brown face and are happy to ignore the Brash race brown arming you could be just the sort of broad representation he’s after.

Act doesn’t broadly represent white New Zealand men, let alone all of New Zealand society. Brash has shown his tactics are those of a divider, he just hasn’t manged the conquer bit yet and it’s not looking likely he ever will, especially if continues to look this out of touch with the real world, and out of touch with most New Zealanders.
