    Can you believe this is being allowed to happen right under the noses of the good people of *Dunedin* ❓ Surely there are by-laws in place to prevent this vile practice on our city streets…..where are the police to arrest these people. As Wayne just said, “It would never happen in Remuera” 😡

        What you say is very, very true of course Parti. The worrying thing for* Dunedin residents*, is that according to the 9pm news, this woman is *still out there*. They suspect she may have not gone to far, as the van she is traveling in is in need of urgent repairs.

        Sounds like it’s time for the good folks of *Neighborhood Watch* to head out on patrol…..that’s wot we do in *Remmers* at times like this.

          Good on them, Nellers. Lazy poodle owners are bad enough when you’re jogging at night. Does this sort of thing happen a lot in Remmers? 😳

    I tried to accept these people have a different world view from me. But I couldn’t. I honestly believe they are mentally ill, or have reality ‘issues.’

      The irony being that the people that take the hours to edit together all these videos are equally mentally ill.

        I would consider it a public service to show us how many ‘nuts’ are out there. Makes a change from the portrayal of Conservatives, eh, Anon?

          One of the most common “triggered feminists” to appear in these videos is actually a homeless girl from Chicago with severe paranoia/schizophrenia who videos everything she does as her illness makes her believe she is being stalked by everyone, and she wants to leave a record when ‘they’ take her.
          These guys say “look at the triggered feminist” and the trolls start stalking her in real life. ( the comments on those videos are more telling, They’re your peeps Corky, in all their ugly glory)
          But hey, it’s a public service.

          As to conservatives, you don’t have to make a compilation to show how retarded they are, just pick any video at random.

              You have to admit Corky, there’s little that isn’t “mentally ill” on both sides of the quasi-political you tube scene.

    So Muslims are straight shooters when it comes to critiquing the West.. But how do they fare when being interviewed? This is another person who’s just across the ditch. Notice the inability to critique Islam, no matter how hideous the crime

              The horseshoe theory in political science stipulates that the far-left and far-right are more similar to each other in essentials than either is to the political center.

              It was formulated by the French post-postmodernist philosopher Jean-Pierre Faye, who believed that the extremes of the political spectrum both represented totalitarianism of different kinds; this meant that the political spectrum should not be described as a linear bar with the two ends representing the far-left and right being ideologically the furthest apart from each other, but as a horseshoe in which the two ends are closer to each other than to the center.

              The same phenomenon applies in the various competing monotheisms as well, where professed arch-enemies like Christian dominionists and the Muslim Taliban actually share views on most topics, including on consumer culture, abortion, feminism, drug use, homosexuality and so on.

              Nationalists from different nations and race supremacists from different ethnic groups (white supremacy, black supremacy) also share the majority of their political outlook with their rival cranks, not with the majority.

      A friend of Wayne’s dad is right into this sort of stuff as well. The poor old bugger was recently made redundant after nearly 40 years at the same printing business. They say it’s probably all the solvents 😡

    Andrew Little pulled out his gun today, and shot his stumps again. He will be investigating our defence budget. He believes roofs over heads comes first. This man is an embarrassment. He’s also IRRITATING me.

    Incidentally, 15 billion over 15 years, if I remember correctly, is an international embarrassment..
