Left Wing

A reader emails about the bigotry of the left

A reader responds to my post about the bigotry of the left.

Hi Cam,

Reading the email from a reader you posted reminded me of someone I follow in the states called Ben Shapiro.

He released a book this year called “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans” 

He did give a really good talk on how to effectively defeat anyone of the left in a debate, and I believe it should be mandatory watching for any National MP before they go onto Campbell live or any show hosted by a left-wing muppet.  Read more »

Why we need voter reforms

Cactus Kate has said that the referendum is a crock, instead of selecting voting systems we should be looking at voter qualification. Her belief is that Net taxpayers only should vote, anyone who is a Net Tax-taker should be forced to abstain. We need voter reforms not electoral reforms. Here is why.

Why are left-wing activist groups so keen on registering the poor to vote?

Because they know the poor can be counted on to vote themselves more benefits by electing redistributionist politicians.  Welfare recipients are particularly open to demagoguery and bribery.

Registering them to vote is like handing out burglary tools to criminals.  It is profoundly antisocial and un-American to empower the nonproductive segments of the population to destroy the country — which is precisely why Barack Obama zealously supports registering welfare recipients to vote.

This is exactly the same situation here in NZ. With the Unions, Labour and the Greens actively running voter registration and then cajoling them to vote on election day. It is for precisely the above reasoning.

Is it any surprise then that the unions, Labour and the Greens are therefore devoting much of their campaign energy, money and labour to retaining MMP, the very system that enables non-productive segments of the population to vote themselves an income?

Encouraging those who burden society to participate in elections isn’t about helping the poor.  It’s about helping the poor to help themselves to others’ money.  It’s about raw so-called social justice.  It’s about moving America ever farther away from the small-government ideals of the Founding Fathers.

Same here. We need to seriously be looking at a system that encourages selfish voting behaviour to the detriment of the economy and the nation.


The violence of the left wing in New Zealand

Much was made, erroneously, of the motivations of Jared Laughner. The Standard leapt straight in and branded him a Tea Party supporter without a shred of evidence, and then went on to malign and implicate Sarah Palin as well. Bomber at Tumeke also falsely brought Sarah Palin into the blame game for the crazed actions of an idiot.

Both of these left wing hate speech sites somehow connected political rhetoric with violence by someone not even connected with either Sarah Palin or the Tea Party. In fact all evidence points to Jared Laughner being a anarco-communist. That however doesn’t stop them telling the story they want to tell no matter how false or misleading it is.

The left-wing holds itself up as being enlightened, and above such violence. Their rhetoric never uses such nasty words as ‘target’, or ‘hitlist’, oh no, they hold much more considered debates with their followers. Like this poster currently adorning fences on the North Shore in Auckland

Poster on North Shore, Auckland

I have no idea who “People Not Profit Collective” is but I’ll bet a million dollars that they aren’t Tea Party members or Sarah Palin supporters. If posters can make people flip out and attempt to kill politicians then this one is right up there.

I doubt though we will see any left wing blog decrying this poster though. Because, you know, they have a much higher and more peaceful level of debate than the right wing who are all gun crazy, baby eating demagogues.

We certainly had this for 9 years under Clark, and the leftists still practice it today.

UPDATE: Right on cue Darien Fenton proves the point that this video makes.
