Offensive sexist and racist photo & headline on Left wing blog

I am sooooooo offended. Its’s sexissssssst and raaacissst. My feelings have been hurt, someone call the Human Rights Commission quick.

If positions were reversed and this below photo and headline had appeared first on Whaleoil, it would have been all Lefties to the pumps to pour petrol on the fire.

PHOTO-The Daily Blog

This photo of three well known female politicians was mocked in an offensive way as the professional women were compared to monkeys.The headline read..Hear no poverty, see no poverty, speak no poverty: We have lost what it means to be a Kiwi.
This headline is a clear reference to the three monkeys and the saying hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.

Andrew Little offers me an advance copy of his speech but there is a catch

5mpn8Qq

Imagine my excitement yesterday when I received another e-mail from my good mate Andrew Little. For just a second I thought he said he was delivering his speech at Mac Donalds but closer inspection revealed that it was in fact Mac’s Conference Centre.

As Andrew told me that he wanted me, YES ME, to be one of the first to read his speech I eagerly clicked on the link thinking, great that’s another easy blog post sorted. But alas, my excitement was premature as this popped up…

A people-powered movement

I seem to be receiving emails from Andrew Little with monotonous regularity now so I have livened it up with a few pictures to make it more interesting for you all.

Juana,

When I became the Leader of the Labour Party, one of my top priorities was building our people-powered movement of Labour supporters around New Zealand.

More proof (if it was needed) that German humour is problematic at best

Angela_Merkel_Juli_2010_-_3zu4

Germany’s Angela Merkel has agreed to allow prosecutors to pursue a case against a German comedian who mocked Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan, prompting accusations she’s failed to protect free speech and has split her ruling coalition.

Erdogan had demanded that Germany press charges against Jan Boehmermann after he recited a poem about the Turkish leader in a show on German public broadcaster ZDF on March 31, suggesting he hits girls, watches child pornography and engages in bestiality.

You see, that’s not funny.   Strike 1.   Read more »

I am feeling all left wing today, let’s ban some stuff

We libertarian conservatives really miss out when it comes to banning things.  We support freedom of choice and freedom of religion so we don’t generally call for bans on things.  I say why should the left wing have all the fun?  They want to ban Whaleoil, they want to ban opinions that they don’t like, they want to ban the use of certain words and change place names. They want to ban certain light bulbs and showerheads but I say it’s time we called for a few bans of our own.

First on my libertarian conservative agenda is builders butt crack. It offends me. It gets my libertarian conservative  knickers in a knot.  It is unsightly. Whenever I see one I always get a crazy urge to pop a flower down it. I cannot be the only one who feels this way?

BAN Number ONE: Builders’ Butt crack

Builder's butt crack is offensive and needs to be banned.

I admit using headlines to grab your attention

I have noticed that the word ‘admit ‘ is commonly used by Media to make something look dodgy. A headline that caught my eye today is an example.

There are so many things that are true and totally innocuous that can be made to look dodgy by the simple use of the word ‘admit’. Its inclusion makes us think that the person named is ashamed or was pressured in some way to tell the truth. In some cases that may actually be correct but in others the word has been added only to make an eye-catching headline.

Face of the day

Mayor Henriette Reker

Today’s Face of the Day, Henriette Reker, is mayor of Cologne. She has been criticised for appearing to blame German women for being molested by migrant men. In her speech she said that women just have to be better “prepared” when they go out in public:

This means, they should go out and have fun, but they need to be better prepared, especially with the Cologne carnival coming up. For this, we will publish online guidelines that these young women can read through to prepare themselves.

Be better prepared? What a great idea. I have some great suggestions for appropriate clothing and accessories over the break.
