Redbaiter dealing to Twitter tyrants

I haven’t come across one of the most amusing social media warriors, Redbaiter, for a long time, but he popped up on Twitter last night to confront my tyranny.

He followed up:

And:

He does still bother with his own blog TrueblueNZ, but only occasionally. His latest post (March 29): Oh what a tangled web the left do weave

Its a mystery how the left, once they gain power in any country or state, frequently manage to retain that power for a surprisingly long duration. Even when their policies cause deprivation and destruction, people inexplicably still keep voting for them. What is the answer to this mystery?

 

The narrative is what people talk about when they’re talking politics, or economics, or society. The issues people vote on. Leftists put immense effort into controlling and delivering the narrative, and this is the main reason they manage to stay in power for so long. With friends in the media and academia, its easy for them to lead the discussion, and rather than talk about issues that matter, they insure the topics of conversation are focused on relatively minor issues (that mostly arise because of Critical Theory or Cultural Marxism).

So controlling the (mostly false) narrative  is the main strategy the left use to extend their period of political power in any place they govern. The strategy’s three central components are a politically corrupted media, a mainly sympathetic academia, and a cynical political force asking for votes. Long lasting socialist governments are always a combination of these three groups.

How to combat this strategy? Well, the most obvious solution to is to reject the issues they want to talk about. In other words, tell them to shut up. Tell them they’re boring. Its true. They are. The left’s endless whining about non-existent issues is a monotonous dirge. Who needs it?

The way to stop the left from maintaining their grip on power is to reject the deliberately distracting issues they and their media and academic allies want us to talk about.  Reject conversations about side issues that are cynically designed to drag down the level of political debate and thereby extend the left’s hold on power. Tell them they’re bores and to shut up and go away, otherwise, they’ll hang around for ever. Or at least until they’ve ruined everything that was ever good in our societies.

He’s been trying to shut people up for a long time so it’s kinda cute him and hypocritical for him to say thinghs like “subjecting my views to censorship by likes of self important hypocritical blog owners, their ever whining patrons & their insipid childlike demands”. But that’s Redbaiter.

To those who aren’t familiar with Redbaiter, he used to frequent Kiwiblog talking up his revolutionary plans, and went through a phase of threatening to hang journalists and anyone from the left (just about everyone in his mind is to the left) from lamp posts. Like (from Redbaiter and hanging from lamp posts):

It is the job of journalists to demand accountability from politicians. They are so in the tank for this charlatan it is a crime, and if there is ever a civil war or any kind of armed uprising, these yellow scum, who have betrayed their profession to their ideology, should be the first to swing from sturdy lamp posts by their necks and strong hemp ropes.

And:

Speak for yourself Comrade. That you are so constantly intent on destroying other people’s right to liberty just might be the endeavour that sees you and your ilk swinging from lamp posts one day in the not too distant future. The tipping point grows ever nearer.

So his complaints about censorship are a bit of a joke when he threatens to hang anyone he disagrees with.

Now he says he sticks to confronting tyranny on Twitter. He describes himself:

The Redbaiter

The Redbaiter

@Redbaiternz

Defender of Western civilization. “One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up.” — Arthur Koestler

Patrolling Twitter telling people to shut up is a much more moderate type of campaign – it could take a while to talk up his revolution.

Redbaiter is a real blast from the past. He yearns for the good old days – it looks like he fancies the Crusades.

    Redbaiter had a good rant on true blue about why he left blogs unfortunately since deleted.
    Griff had an Honorable mention.
    I think the most telling thing in his rant was when he passed the mantel for championing his politics on KB onto EAD the Nazi.
    His brand of extreme authoritarianism will never get majority support in a democracy .
    Ps I am 99% certain Redbaiter has been active on KB since he flounced off by using a sock puppet to comment.

    Immigration and public opinion in Australia: how public concerns about high migration are
    suppressed
    Katharine Betts

    Executive summary
    Australia’s remarkable population growth over the last decade is mainly being driven by high levels of immigration. The survey taken by the Australian Population Research Institute (Tapri) in August 2017 found that 54 per cent of voters wanted these levels reduced. But there is some division here. Sixty-one per cent of voters who are not university graduates wanted a reduction but only 41 per cent of graduates agreed.

    Data from the 2016 Australian Election Study (AES) collected after the July 2016 federal election show that 72 per cent of people working in arts and media actually wanted a further increase in immigration, as did 49 per cent of teachers and academics.

    In contrast, those business managers who are not graduates were the keenest on a reduction.
    The AES data also reveals an even more striking finding. Sixty per cent of the candidates standing for election in 2016 wanted an increase in migration and only four per cent wanted a decrease.

    This position was especially marked for Labor and Greens candidates.

    At that time 67 per cent of Labor candidates wanted an increase compared to only 31 per cent of Labor voters. Labor candidates were much closer to Greens candidates and to Greens voters than they were to their own supporters.

    Never forget. NZ PM Jacinda Ardern is a dedicated communist & will take NZ gradually further & further left, according to a schedule based upon just how much she can get away with without causing too much outrage. Shame Nats don’t want freedom as much as Jacinda wants communism.

    Why do Marxists like NZ PM Jacinda Ardern sound so hollow? Because they are not individuals, but robots whose minds were taken by the left in their impressionable youth. They can’t think or speak outside the political & intellectual parameters they have been indoctrinated with.

      He goes over the top at times but I agree with a large chunk of what he says.

    I have never heard of him.

    Does anyone remember ‘The Double Standard’, a non-existent paper which had posters with double entendres, supposedly about real stories ?
