Green Taliban

Why did we ever think the Greens weren’t mad?

You have to give Russel Norman credit: ¬†he’s managed to make us forget just for a moment that the Greens are nothing but a collection of flat earth idiots. ¬†To a person, they tend to be single issue nutters that identify with the Greens because they are the party that provides a home for them (although Labour has been creeping in on that territory)

Steffan Browning is the Green MP that got in because of the final count of special votes.  It cost National its outright majority.  This is what we got for our money:

Prime Minister John Key has dismissed a Green MP’s suggestion that health officials should consider homeopathic remedies to treat the deadly Ebola virus as “barking mad”.

Green Party MP Steffan Browning made the suggestion, regarding World Health Organisation (WHO) options for treating Ebola, while acknowledging “some people will see it as wacky”.

This week Browning signed an online petition on Change.org, which calls for the WHO to end the suffering of the Ebola crisis by testing and distributing homeopathy as quickly as possible to contain the outbreaks.

Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine, based on a doctrine of ‚Äúlike cures like‚ÄĚ, which means the patient is treated with a very diluted form of the substance causing the symptoms of the disease – in this case, a diluted version of the Ebola virus.

Key said he thought the idea was “barking mad”.

“Let’s be honest, this is a serious global issue, and if he really thinks that’s the answer I’d love to see the medical research.”

Browning said ‚Äúit was probably a bit unwise‚ÄĚ to sign the petition, which he also shared on his Facebook page encouraging other people to sign it.

When asked, Browning also supported the US continuing to use Homeopathic Questioning Methods on Al Qaeda.

Here is a secret conversation we recorded by “industry insiders” about a whole different problem Browning should probably look into. ¬† Read more »

List MP Kevin Hague plays #dirtypolitics

You’ll know I’m no fan of List MPs, and while all of the Green Taliban fall into that camp, there’s a few that stand out as particularly sanctimonious scumbags.

Take yesterday’s Question #10 by Kevin Hague asking about conflicts of interest and whether the Food and Grocery Council’s CEO Katherine Rich should be a member of the Health Promotion Agency.

Health Minister Jonathan Coleman batted him away saying ‚ÄėKatherine Rich is a person of the very highest integrity and that her conduct as a member of the HPA has been excellent‚Äô.

Looks like the Green Taliban are going to try and run attacks against the Nats using stolen emails and play more #dirtypolitcs. Good.

Next time Kevin Hague wants to have a crack and call for investigation, maybe the Government should ask what conflicts Kevin Hague has.

You see Kevin Hague has been a frequent target for health lobbyists, particularly those Fizz2030 activists troughers from Otago University. They even went as far as bestowing on him the title ’Hon’.

Maybe Government MPs could ask Hague about who is advising the Greens on their ‚Äėobesity reduction‚Äô policy. The one where he wants controls on price, availability and marketing on the likes of fizzy drinks, chocolate and even breakfast cereals. ¬† Read more »

Greenpeace is an “evil organisation” – Patrick Moore, founder of Greenpeace

patrick-moore-665x385

One of the founders of Greenpeace, Dr Patrick Moore, has been at war with Greenpeace since he left in 1986.

He now says that Greenpeace has become anti-human and an “evil organisation”.

Greenpeace has been branded an ‘evil organisation’ which has ‘lost concern for humans’ in an astonishing attack by its own co-founder.

Ecologist Dr Patrick Moore, who quit Greenpeace in 1986, has launched a scathing criticism of the activist group, which he insisted¬†has lost its humanitarian roots. ¬† Read more »

Greenpeace blackmailers get gutless Lego to cave in

bp1

Greenpeace, like most left wing organisations, like to use blackmail to achieve their ends.

They sail around the world using oil products for their own ships, but have recently mounted a campaign to get Lego to cease producing toys in conjunction with Shell.

The sanctimonious hypocrites insist that kids shouldn’t play with Lego with Shell logos on them.

Like a lot of other companies who are blackmailed and threatened by activists like this, Lego caved. This won’t solve the problem, now Greenpeace will be emboldened to attack and destroy the brand of others.

Danish toymaker Lego has announced it won’t renew its long-standing contract with Shell following a viral Greenpeace campaign. ¬† Read more »

The essential problem with Green (and left) messages

Check this out

How does that pass your BS detector? ¬† Not only do these people want you to believe that half of all the earth’s species have become extinct since 1970, they also use an image of a lion – an animal we all know has been extinct for some time.

Why do they do this?

Why is it that the left completely oversell their messages? ¬†It’s simply not effective. ¬†They lost an election because of it too. ¬†Nobody believed the extremes that they were selling to every day New Zealanders.

The question is:   Do they oversell on purpose, or have they started to believe their own doomsday scenarios?

Let’s say this is even true. ¬†Is it bad? ¬†It sounds bad… ¬†but is it? Read more »

Green Taliban: Ban, tax, levy, inquiries turn into Green: Love NZ for election time

new zealand green taliban logo

The Green Taliban certainly are the most cynical of them all. ¬†All year they go on about banning this, repealing that, taxing something else, applying levies or other commercial disincentives. ¬†They want to have everything that doesn’t go their way subjected to high level inquiries, and then they still can’t get their way they have used taxes to pay for a referendum and scared $1B of shareholder value from the pockets of people purchasing electricity shares.

But for the last 8 weeks of every election, these people turn into something else. ¬† Read more »

After last night, not a single farmer will vote Green (still)

Russel Norman has come up with a whole new tax:  The Farmer Water Tax.  3 News has the story:

The Green Party says it’s considering a water tax on farmers, but it’s not saying how much.

Co-leader Russel Norman said on The Nation it’ll be up for the industry to decide what’s appropriate.

“It is [the Greens' intention to charge for use of irrigation],” says Dr Norman. “There should be some price. We should negotiate with industry what that price should be for irrigation water.”

It’s not the first time the Greens have floated the idea; in 2011 they campaigned on taxing farmers 10 cents per tonne of water used. But this time around, Dr Norman is remaining tight-lipped on what the tax would be.

Of course he is. ¬†The idea of a water tax is bad enough. ¬† The last thing he wants is people to know how much he’s coming for. ¬† Read more »

Another win¬†for Russel Norman’s Marxist storm troopers, and a loss for the living thing¬†that has numerous galvanised nails driven into it.

 

Will the Green Party call for a high level inquiry into political hacking?
