  • Please don’t post anything illegal, potentially defamatory or abusive.

FIRST TIME COMMENTERS: Due to abuse by a few first comments under any ID will park in moderation until released (as soon as possible but it can sometimes take a while).

Sometimes comments will go into moderation or spam automatically due to mistyped ID, too many links (>4), or trigger text or other at risk criteria.

Free speech is an important principle here but some people who might pose a risk to the site will have to keep going through moderation due to abuses by a small number of malicious people.

    Does NZME run a school for alt right Jacinda Ardern hating hosts.Every talk back host sings off the same song sheet,the only thing that changes is the voice.Theres a theme for the day and the theme is thrashed to death.Yesterdays theme was baby bumps and afterbirth, today’s theme is Jacinda grovelling to the Maori it appears.

    Want proof Europe is stuffed? According to a European correspondent the suspect refused to stand for the court. They waited for a hour before the judge became frustrated.
    So the court didn’t control proceedings; the suspect did. Unbelievable.

      Stuff Europe I’m more concerned how the alt right national party apparatus using media groups NZME and attack blogs ie kiwiblog and WOBH are trying to devide New Zealand due to the fact their cash cow National Party is siting on the opposition’s benches lead by a two time loser.

    “Ai” it is Waitangi Day.. ‘Te Tiriti o Waitangi’
    BUT also; the commemoration of the Birthday of the Greatest Reggae Music Star of his/any generation: Robert Nesta (Bob) Marley O.M.
    “All praises in the name of the Most High; H.I.M. Haile Selassie I, Ras Tafari !”
    His Legend Lives on.. 🙂

    Lots of laughs…Sonny Tau thanked the previous National government. He also now considers Dame Jenny an honorary Ngapuhi for her attendance every year at Waitangi.

  5. Screenshot of Bob Jones’ comments on NBR which got removed. Interesting comments underneath.

      Good ole, Bob. He’s the answer to liberal twats who hate their own medicine. Nice bit of piss taking.

        Had a look at the Reddit thread. The Left’s only response is abuse.

          Had a look at the article. The Right’s is too.

            Really, I didn’t see anything except a gaggle of Lefties?

              That’s cos you’re looking down.

            • Alan Wilkinson

               /  February 6, 2018

              More likely because I got bored looking at rubbish.

            • Gezza

               /  February 6, 2018

              Yes. At the top was Bob’s article. I felt the same way. It’s good we agree on this.

              It’s only a screenshot. There must be more of it somewhere. Take a look at South Africa if you think tribalism is healthy. Zuma has wrecked the country because Zulus think they have to vote for him and the ANC need their votes.

            • Gezza

               /  February 6, 2018

              How did we get to Zulus – is that from Bob saying he has in mind a public holiday where Maori bring you breakfast in bed or weed your gardens & wash & polish your cars out of gratitude for existing?

              What twat gave this git a knighthood?

              I suspect there was more but they pulled it when someone with a few clues read it & realised what he is.

            @Gezza – “What twat gave this git a knighthood?”

            Unfortunately …. WE did …

            Knighthoods are given to systems legitimizers, even if they’ve Rogered us good and proper …

    A lot of excellent insights in this:
    https://www.encounterbooks.com/features/rupert-darwall-totalitarian-roots-environmentalism/

    How the Left have sold out the working class for fascist environmentalism.

    • I’ll read it later, but the modern left is a very difffferent beast.

      Modern leftism is identity politics and fcuses on reforms i.e. civil and political rights, women’s rights, gay rights, abortion rights, gender roles and drug policy. This contrasts with earlier Marxist ideology of class and economics reform.

      Before Jacinda this man lead the free world as Chief Virtue Signaller.

        Peoplekind is just ridiculous. It should be personkind.

          The best fallback is humanity. Saying homo sapiens can be tricky these days.

          • Er. I think you’ll find it’s not Gezza, huMANity is not a word for drips like Trudeau and his miserable ilk
