    Children’s stories Saturday morning RNZ

    Whilst you are having a sleep in on Saturday morning RNZ are at your children’s brains.

    Todays message

    I greedy industrialist kills thousands of rats in the process of developing an addictive chemical to lace chocolates. His customers cant stop eating his chocolates and his profits grow. He invests in technology and robots and sacks all the workers. Finally he is trapped by his machinery and cannot escape because there are no workers to hear his cries for help. His name was very Jewish sounding

    So your children’s lesson today.

    Message:

    Greedy Jewish industrialists kill animals to make addictive products to make more money so he can sack all his workers. Probable an anti sugar jab as well.

    Incredible, and no doubt written by the same SJW who banned Golly Wogs. Makes you wonder if Hitler listened to RNZ when he was five

      Cheer up ut, good people are fighting back. Hey, America has just elected a man who is totally immune to political correctness.

      To further elevate your mood, Milo scores hit after hit on a hapless lefty in this vid. Well worth a watch if you have the time

        I prefer not to try any crime Blazer, however, if you would like to try crime – white collar or otherwise – go ahead, just keep your fingers crossed you don’t get caught!

    Here’s a horrid story on many levels. The level I would like to concentrate on is the sentencing. This monster received a minimum of 31 years jail time.

    Now, I’m just trying to remember what the killer of the Kahui twins received. Oh, that’s right. Police ineptitude, political correctness and an inability to withstand public pressure meant the killer (s) went free.

    Who is that arguing with Lees-Galoway on the Nation. I could hear lees Galloway and Lisa Owen but not him.
    That’s where a text is helpful -levelling : no sickly smooth voice or flashy smile.

    Seems a Muslim has gone crazy in Germany. Only one person is dead, so authorities will consider that a success.

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/hamburg-attack-stabbing-barmbek-supermarket-dead-injured-list-germany-police-knife-a7865366.html

    • In 2015 there were 682 intentional homicides in Germany, on average nearly two a day. I’m not sure what the point of cherry picking occasional incidents is apart from ostracising a certain demographic.

      There has been no indication that the person, who seemed to go crazy and three people ended up dead, was a Muslim.

        ”News agency dpa quoted two witnesses at a nearby bakery as saying they heard the assailant shout “Allahu akbar!”

        You may be correct. I am assuming.

        ”In 2015 there were 682 intentional homicides in Germany, ”

        That stat is really immaterial. Every country has murders. In fact, per percentage of population Germany has a murder rate lower than ours. My point is Muslims are committing crime way out of proportion to their numbers which happen to be the magical 5.5 percent. And its a type of crime causing major problems on the streets and in communities as opposed to other ethnic organised crime operation.

        Gemany made a mistake importing this problem..and they know it.

          Yep. Muslims ➡️ ➡️ ➡️ Muslim countries.

          Best thing. Just how it is. Been over & over it.
          No getting away from it.

        • Why waste your time Corky? Sydney has just been spared by a sequence of anti-terror raids… but don’t say the I or M words. Because that is just stirring up unjustifed hate, don’t you know….

        Quote:

        ”Hamburg Mayor Olaf Scholz said in a statement that the assailant was “apparently a foreigner who was supposed to leave the country,” but could not be deported because he did not have the necessary identification papers. Police said they were still trying to determine his citizenship.

        “It’s also infuriating that this perpetrator is someone who asked for protection in Germany and then turned his hate against us,” Scholz said. ”
