So how do I earn victimhood points?

8pjtpbx

In my 10am post today I mentioned the Progressive pyramid of victimhood. This post is to explain how to earn victimhood points in order to make your way to the top of it.

The strangest thing about the victimhood pyramid is how it has decreased the value of victimhood points for homosexuals. Homosexual rights are “so yesterday” to the progressive left.Transexuals and the hundreds of different made up genders are now the go-to examples of victimhood. Jews barely rate a mention but Muslims are the new big thing.

Ratepayers Bill of Rights

bill_of_rights

What could a Ratepayers Bill of Rights look like?

1. Keep the total rate take to no more than the rate of inflation (but taking into account the increase in the rating base associated with population growth).

2. Return any surplus of rates collected to ratepayers by way of rate reduction or pay down debt rather than spend on fringe “pet projects”

3. Require any proposed Rates Rises above the Inflation Limit to be approved by ratepayers in a referendum held at the same time as local government elections. Read more »

What Susan Devoy has in common with Social Justice Bullies

“I, an ethnic minority woman, cannot be racist or sexist towards white men because racism and sexism describe structures of privilege based on race and gender and therefore women of colour and minority genders cannot be racist or sexist, since we do not stand to benefit from such a system.” Bahar Mustafa (Goldsmith’s University)

It is clear from the underlying messages in all the stories selected for the Race Relations Commission website  www.thatsus.co.nz  that stories of white New Zealanders will only be published if they reveal that a) they have benefited from white privilege and/or  b) have discovered some non-white heritage of which they can now be proud (since being a “Pakeha” is a bad thing.)

Racism against a person due to them being white is a narrative that this website does not want to hear because in the Race Relations Commissioner‘s PC world racism against white people simply does not exist.

Random Impertinent Questions for Phil Goff

goff-blue

While the “independent” candidate for Auckland’s mayoralty is busily having the Labour party deliver his leaflets and campaign with him I thought it might be timely to ask Phil Goff a number of impertinent questions.

When Richard Prebble left the leadership of the Act party in 2004 it seems there was a mad scramble to find a replacement.

A very well connected messenger was dispatched to Wellington to meet with a certain Labour party MP to consider taking over the leadership of the Act party.

So it seems there are some questions that need asking.  Read more »

Chris Darby is one of Len’s “Terrible Ten”

Guess what he is campaigning on?

The Auckland Ratepayers’ Alliance is surprised at the hypocrisy of Councillor Chris Darby’s election signs stating that he will ‘Rein in Rates’, and is calling on Aucklanders to think carefully about what their incumbent Councillors have voted for in the past when deciding on who to vote for this election.

Spokesperson for the Ratepayers’ Alliance, Jo Holmes says:

“Chris Darby was one of the members of the “Terrible Ten” who voted for Len Brown’s 9.9% rates hike. It smacks of hypocrisy that that he is campaigning on a slogan to ‘Rein in Rates’.”

“The public have had enough of the sort of wishy-washy, swinging in the wind decision making of many of our incumbent Councillors. Many of them have failed in their role to provide strong governance, and as a result, the bureaucrats of Auckland Council have consistently seized opportunities to run their own agenda, and pay little heed to the concerns of everyday Aucklanders.” Read more »

Questions for the Nelson Mail

pete-rainey

The Nelson Mail appears to be the public outreach for Mayoral Candidate Pete Rainey. Instead of asking him the tough questions that need answering they talk about dirty politics.

Instead of asking the tough questions of Pete Rainey they try to make out he is an absolute angel who is being subjected to an unfair attack. The problem with this narrative is that Rainey has not answered important questions about a variety of issues, and it makes everyone wonder if the Mail should be renamed “ Pete’s Pravda”.
