Iâm certainly no fan of Greenpeace, nor of its boss Bunny McDiarmid. Even that pinko blogger FarrarÂ commentedÂ that he thinks Greenpeace acts in a very political way. I agree.
The Court of Appeal is currently hearing from the lawyers from Crown Law and Greenpeace in the appeal against Greenpeace losing their charitable status. Greenpeace clearly doesnât want to lose its charitable status with their lawyer saying âthe sticking point was that if it lost its charitable status the IRD might revoke its donor statusâ.
No shit Sherlock. Thatâs because Greenpeace might start seeing donations and funding source drying up faster than the Sahara Desert.
The reality is there is nothing charitable about Greenpeace. You just have to read theÂ rantingÂ of McDiarmid to see that.Â It is a global business whose only desire is to extract the maximum amount of money out of New Zealanders to send off-shore to Greenpeace International.
Hereâs 10 Reasons Why Greenpeace Should Not be treated as a charityâŠ
- Charities donât cost the economy jobs by advocating for whole industries to close down
- Charities donât commandeer public property
- Charities donât appropriate the intellectual property of other organisations
- Charities donât break and enter private property
- Charities donât get charged with burglary
- Charities donât attack the livelihoods of other New Zealanders
- Charities donât tell lies inÂ advertisingÂ (Rena )
- Charities donât tamper with food products
- Charities donât bully, persecute and stalk those they disagree with
- Charities don’t litter, vandalise and graffiti
