Nation Front clash with anti-racism protesters

A permitted National Front protest at Parliament grounds today was met by a counter protest by anti-racists, including two Green MPs.

Stuff: National Front members chased away from Parliament

Hundreds of anti-racism protesters have chased National Front members from the grounds of Parliament.

The National Front had a permit to protest on the land wars memorial day but a counter-protest was organised.

Green MPs Golriz Ghahraman and Marama Davidson spoke at the rally.

Hundreds gathered for the Aukati Stop Racism rally, which chased various National Front members to Wellington’s railway station.

As more National Front members made their way to Parliament, the rally chanted “refugees welcome, racists not”.

A few scuffles started but police intervened, surrounding the National Front members to escort them away.

      Full of it. We are not National front, we are Resistance. We promote bi culturalism in NZ to help better our country and people. Does that make us racist? It is not racist to want to end the tyranny of mass immigration, it is my human right to hold these opinions. Mass immigration in NZ is a major problem in this day and age. We as NZ people are pushed out of our homes, country and money/jobs to help out people who have no quals, nothing!. Is it our fault that there govt and people screwed them up. So why do we kiwis have to suffer for there shit. I believe that this Winston Peters/Jacinda Ardern coalition is one of the best things to happen to us. We all (as an Org) feel like we contributed towards Winston’s accomplishment of becoming NZ Deputy PM. I myself believe that this forestry, farming bother etc is a major but small concern to US all as a nation. We are in half a trillion dollars debt, so what remedies are willing to be put into place to resolve this? We as a nation, as NZ European and NZ Maori need to stand together and tell the govt what we want, tell them we want our land and assets back to help us achieve growth and loyalty as a nation

      • I don’t think we have anything like ‘mass immigration’, our immigration is strictly controlled.

        We have long been far more diverse than “NZ European and NZ Maori”, we’re not bi-cultural.

          I would like him to name 10 people who have been forced from their houses by immigrants.

          Sorry Pete, but we do have ‘mass immigration’, of unskilled migrants, via a loophole in the law, that allows foreign students a fast track to residency. Get a student visa to study English here, pass your course, work in a servo for a year, & you are allegedly a Kiwi. If only it were so easy for the foreign tradesmen, who already speak English, and who we actually need…

              A single friend of mine tells me similar, although I suspect that that particular occupation probably is left out of residency applications. A good little earner though, I imagine…

Ur all moaning at it all but there’s not much you can do really. Winston is dp and jacinda is pm. They hold many of the same beliefs Resistance does

              Good on ya for voting at least. Be good if Winston actually believed in some of his policies. Have some wildlife rangering duties to attend to here. Might cya later. All the best.

      Correction. We want our land and jobs and housing back. Where is the care for the NZ people? Over 90000 young NZ Maori and euros are out of pocket and homes because mass immigration. Mass immigration equals mass votes. Next thing you know, we won’t even be kiwis. We are all going to be a bunch of god knows what fucking up and selling our country just to get out of half a trillion dollars debt. Don’t you get it. I’m that dude with the Swazi idrgaf what any of you have to say tbh. Why should I sit back and be called racialist by a bunch of people being racist. I can’t help that I’m worried for NZ and my heritage. Its really funny too how the media pick out what they want and make it so it suits the “publics interest”. I’m not a Nazi haven’t supported the Nazi way for a couple years now. By the way its RESISTANCE NZ not NF get it right.

      Oh and BTW, we were just passers buy trying to go for walk. Thtn we got mobbed lol, and we are pathetic?. Neither my self or my mate never once said anything racialist to anyone, in fact, idk wtf the protesters were even on about lol. We supported the New Zealand Land Wars memorial day as well as trying to keep our NZ flag hence flag day so why were they on about racism? When none was displayed or even when they know nothing of our orginisation

    Free speech for all except, if it does not correspond with the the anti racist (and put any ideology here) ideology. But all is good, it will drive alternative opinions underground.

    Is it better to have dialog with people one disagrees with and to persuade your view point is the better alternative. For to force their view point underground and into clandestine activity means you no longer control the outcome.

    A tolerant free speech society we are certainly not.

        Read and digest, David, then perhaps you’ll understand why false equivalence arguments such as yours are just dog-whistles that downplay the dangerousness of white supremacy:

        https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2017/08/16/sorry-conservatives-theres-no-equivalence-between-the-extreme-right-and-the-extreme-left/?utm_term=.3381784bb5f1

        http://www.macleans.ca/opinion/the-false-equivalency-of-the-criticism-of-the-alt-left/

        Your implied claim that antifascist use of violent confrontational tactics is equivalent to the violence of the far-right reflects a fundamental lack of understanding of both fascist violence and the threat faced by antifa, and by diverse communities in general.

        Whereas supremacist movements treat violence as their ultimate goal, antifa approach it as a necessary tactic in self-defense. This position of self-defense is a product of the real threat the white supremacists pose to antifascists.

        I don’t love antifa, but doing harm to people that advocate for ethnic cleansing is….okay on balance.I don’t want to give moral equivalence to the two sides because one side is fighting against white supremacy. On the Antifa side, they’ve never murdered anyone but there have been many murders done by white supremacists, eh.

          “doing harm to people that advocate for ethnic cleansing is ….okay on balance.”

          Two wrongs make it right? What “white supremacy” do than is bad but the equal violence in return is “okay on balance” will quickly extend out into open warfare.

          So you are OK with this type of activity?

          http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/09/06/gang-rape-white-girls-not-racist-judge/

          after all they are only “white” girls that are raped and as “whites” are racists it does not matter?

          Extreme but where do you draw the line?

          • The judge did not say anything like that, don’t put words in people’s mouths.
            As not all the victims were white, it can’t be just a race-related thing. Nobody suggested that gang rape was in any way acceptable and the men (sic) are going to prison, where they will have a nice time with the other prisoners-I don’t think.

          “Whereas supremacist movements treat violence as their ultimate goal, antifa approach it as a necessary tactic in self-defense..”

          Tosh. Antifa’s entire rational is that of confrontation, it has nothing to do with self-defence. Even a simplistic reading of history would show just how big a part this confrontation assisted the Nazi rise to power in 1930’s Germany.

          Just to add, can you not see where this leads? You are happy to ignore crimes simply on the basis of who the victim of the crime is. Violence against people you don’t like is ‘okay on balance’, see what happens when it’s the other side in power……

            • No, not the old but good ‘Itis/Apis/Potanda/Bigone’* if that is the one in the link. There is an old gazunder in there, as it happens, but it’s not in use 😀

              .Cultus. This does mean ‘toilet’, but the other sort of toilet; washing and dressing, as in toiletries. I fear that it will fall flat on anyone but me, the creator.

              * Apis=bee, None of the rest is real Latin.

              ‘It is a piss pot and a big one’ would be something like

              ‘Amphora (urinae ?) est et etiam hic amphora magna est.’

            • POTUS is Latin for drunk, as in a drunk person.

      Shane, next door, stood on a picnic table and bench set & hung over the back fence to eavesdrop in case Charlie & I were talking about him (he chased C & Girl out of his backyard with a broom because after I suggested it they don’t poop much in my place now – they poop in his) & he asked if I saw these neo-Nazi numpties on 1ewes.

      He said if he’d been there he would’ve worn his Afrika Korps cap & been right in their faces telling them we don’t need Nazis in this country!

      So I said the obvious thing about if he’s such a fan of Michael Wittmann & he wears an Afrika Korps cap, didn’t that kind of mean the complete opposite – so short argument about whether Wittmann was Waffen SS or Wehrmacht or whatever.

      Anyway I said that thing about how come it’s only the lefties who don’t just go along and protest but they scream abuse & break things and block people going about their business and stand in front of cars coming out of driveways so they can get their foot run over & claim someone tried to run them down etc & why is that ok?

      But he was adamant. He reckoned they weren’t all lefties and anyway “I’m a National Voter, Gez. We don’t need bloody Nazis in New Zealand, mate, they can piss off – any time I ever see any I’m gonna get right in their face and tell them that!

      (Charlie stayed out of it.)

      • I missed almost all the news story because the television plug did something and the set went off. By the time I’d crawled under the old school desk that it sits on and pushed it in tightly again, the story was over. It was on plus one, so I couldn’t see it again. What timing.

        Watching the news ‘plus one’ means that if one turns it on to see the weather (for what it’s worth) and then turns to plus one, there’s no need to have the sports news.
