Why are you sorry? He was a “judgmental little c*ck”

I didn’t realise Linda Cooper had it in her.

I thought she was dead set useless.

But she has come good big time, even if she did apologise afterwards.

Auckland councillor and National Party member Linda Cooper has apologised after she called a man a “judgmental little c**k” on the Pride parade Facebook page.

Ms Cooper had an exchange with Daniel O’Connor who said he thought National MPs Melissa Lee and Alfred Ngaro were against marriage equality.

“Well good on them to be brave enough to come out in support against their constituent Korean and Pacific views,” Ms Cooper said.

When Mr O’Connor said it looked like the two National MPs were trying to piggyback on the achievements they were trying to hold back, Mrs Cooper hit back.

“Get a grip little boy,” she said.

“When you grow up you will realise that life is not black and white.   Read more »

Face of the day

cropped-elisabeth-HEADER

Todays face of the day, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff was found guilty of hate speech. Her crime? Calling Mohammed a pedophile and telling the truth about Islam. In Austria calls for killing Jews are legal but calling Mohammed a Pedophile is illegal.

The last time I checked, a man who sexually touches a 6 year old girl is a pedophile and one who has sex with a 9 year old girl is a pedophile. You can argue that back in the dark ages that kind of child sex was socially acceptable. I would argue that in modern, civilised times it is not. So therefore I confidently and loudly say that the founder of Islam by today’s civilised standards was a kiddy fiddler, a pedophile, a pedo, a pervert, a rapist, a creeper, a pedobear and  a child molester. The forced child marriage that is still sanctioned and happening within Islam is an abomination and is morally and ethically repulsive.

There I have said it. Charge me with hate speech for stating the obvious. What on earth is our world coming to when a woman cannot tell the truth without being arrested and dragged through the legal system while those who call for Jews to be killed not only are left alone, their words are justified by the judiciary.

It’s not anti-Semitism. It’s anti-Zionism. You can tell because it involves Hitler and killing Jews.

Facebook postings from a Turkish man showing Adolf Hitler, with a statement praising the death of Jews, are a legitimate expression of criticizing the Jewish state, the spokesman for the prosecutor office in the city of Linz, Philip Christl, said on Tuesday.

“I could have annihilated all the Jews in the world, but I left some of them alive so you will know why I was killing them…,” Ibrahim B. wrote on his Facebook page in December.

Why is Lawrence Yule allowing this?

unnamed-6

Mayor of Hastings and Local Government NZ chairman Lawrence Yule has some pretty tough questions to answer.

He has let a dodgy developer create a slum by illegally putting removable houses on an all too small section, then retrospectively given planning permission.  Read more »

Face of the day

Today’s face of the day is not a racist as this issue is not about race. To some however she will be seen as discriminating against people because of their religion or more realistically perhaps, their surnames.To me she is a person fearful of a political ideology, an ideology that I too fear. Would you put a deadly weapon in the hands of a person whose ideology is the total opposite of democracy and freedom? Is that a risk you would be willing to take?

We shall fight on Facebook, we shall fight on Twitter; we shall never surrender

wwewew

The British army are tooling up against ISIS with computers and a social media account.

Rather than sending hundreds of troops around the world, the newest brigade is aimed at the social media war being waged by Islamic State and other terror organisations and their fight to radicalise young people.

The brigade is designed to ‘meet the challenges of modern conflict and warfare’ by winning the hearts and minds of those in battle by both monitoring and engaging with digital and social media channels. Read more »

Facebook is an honour-free zone from the top down

Muhammad as published by the NZ Herald before they ran scared and are now ‘sensitive’ to people’s feelings.

 

Only two weeks after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg released a strongly worded #JeSuisCharlie statement on the importance of free speech, Facebook has agreed to censor images of the prophet Muhammad in Turkey — including the very type of image that precipitated the Charlie Hebdo attack.

It’s an illustration, perhaps, of how extremely complicated and nuanced issues of online speech really are. It’s also conclusive proof of what many tech critics said of Zuckerberg’s free-speech declaration at the time: Sweeping promises are all well and good, but Facebook’s record doesn’t entirely back it up.

Here’s the thing.  I don’t think we should go out of our way to create and publish images of Muhammad with the intent to upset Muslims.  But in return, when we do make or publish an image, I don’t think the response should include violence, terrorism, hostages, maiming and death.   Read more »

Why Labour isn’t connecting

Labour is a glass is half empty type of party.

They can never, to partial quote Monty Python, never “look on the bright side of life”.

The aren’t aspirational, mainly because most of then look at life through the rear view mirror, always looking wistfully at the past and where we have been but never at the future and where we are going.

Take a look at this graphic from Labour that their adherents and forelock tuggers are chucking around social media.

Labour on free speech, then & now

Labour has a less than honest approach to free speech.

Andrew Little issued the following statement on 8 January 2015:

“The attack on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper is an assault on democracy and freedom of expression. Violence against journalists is abhorrent and must not be tolerated in any form.

“This attack should be seen for what it is – an attempt to instil fear in those who would exercise their universal freedoms of thought and expression, which is all of us.

How thick are Labour?

Andrew Little has fed a story to their embedded gallery journalist Vernon Small about the requirements for a new chief press secretary.

Expect to see Labour leader Andrew Little in a good light on the 6pm television news – or questions to be asked at the top of his media unit.

Little is advertising for a new chief press secretary to head the party’s media and communications strategy, and the successful applicant is expected to ensure Little appears “in a positive story on the 6pm news at least twice a week”.

Other key targets put emphasis on social media, including 100,000 “likes” for the party’s Facebook page, up from about 38,000 now, and 40,000 “likes” for Little’s Facebook page by the 2017 election. It currently boasts 10,422 “likes”.

Little’s new spin doctor will also be expected to increase Labour’s email contact list to 200,000 by the 2017 general election, from about 87,000 now.

How dumb is that?

This just shows that Labour has learned nothing from the past 6 years. For two elections now they have touted their fantastic ground game, their dominance of social media and even rolled in David Talbot to advise them on this stuff…all to no avail and with results the reverse of what was predicted. How he could even bill Labour for such a losing strategy is beyond me.

What these chumps have not realised is that Facebook likes does NOT equal votes. Slacktivism or Clicktivism is called that for a reason…useless big talking internet warriors who don’t translate the click of their mouse into actions on the ground.    Read more »

First of all it cannot be racist as ISIS  is not a race it is a terrorist group. Also to be fair its members are very fond of wearing tea towel like rags on both their heads and over their faces.
Secondly, the language used is no different to that used on Islamic Protester’s signs in western countries everywhere. How many times have we seen ‘Death to Infidels’ or ‘Death to those who insult Islam’, on signs in the West?

Thirdly the media have censored the wording on the sign in the photo. Have you ever seen Muslims’ signs censored in the media? Death to Infidels means death to all of us who are not Muslim. That is a pretty overt threat don’t you think?
