Nasty Party

Green Party East Coast candidate goes super nasty in a Gisborne Herald article

The tears of impotent rage are still flowing from the Green Party after the voters gave them such a spanking Sue Bradford would also want to make it illegal.

When commenting in The Gisborne Herald about how the voters walked away from the left in droves on September 20, East Coast Green Party candidate Gavan McLean had this to say:

How do we explain the extraordinary lack of support for those who care? It’s not just the number of non-voters; not just the media, some almost falling over in their lean to the right; not just the demeaning circus of shouting matches called “debates”, or the subsequent navel-gazing “Who won?” editorials; not just National’s dishonesty and adoption of the rhetoric of altruism — of which more later; not just fear of disunity, within a party or a coalition of parties (a fear that is undemocratic in a mixed society).

On the face of it, the voters declared themselves callous and cowardly, which is how history will view this election. How can otherwise intelligent and caring people so thoroughly misrepresent themselves? Of course, many are complacent — life is good, she’ll be right — but the refusal to face the future or even fix immediate problems reflects not real contentment, but deep insecurity. This is a childish reaction, as in the childish song by Sia:

“I’m gonna swing from the chandelier, I’m gonna live like tomorrow doesn’t exist . . .

“But I’m holding on for dear life, won’t look down, won’t open my eyes.”

These people vote

More nastiness from the left.

Until these people decide to act like proper citizens they need to be exposed for wishing death on people for the sole reason that they don’t agree with their political viewpoint.

More #VotePositive from the Nasty party

Stu Nash is usually a top bloke, but even he’s been infected by the nasty party.

First naming (and presumably trying to ‘shame’) a National Party volunteer, and then mocking the bloke’s car!

So much for being the party of the downtrodden.

Come on Nashy, you are better than that.

Don’t be like the rest of the nasty party. Go give the guy your apologies and show you are classy rather than class-less.

When are we going to call this for what it is?

Are the media willfully blind?  (Yes)

Last chance saloon for Labour’s anti-semitic candidate

David Cunliffe says that his anti-semitic nasty Rangitata candidate Steve Gibson is on his last chance.

Labour Party leader David Cunliffe says the party’s Rangitata candidate Steve Gibson is “on a last chance” for insults directed at Prime Minister John Key.

Gibson has apologised for comparing Prime Minister John Key to Jewish Shakespearean villain Shylock in a public Facebook comment.

Gibson said he apologised unreservedly for calling called Key “Shonky Jonkey Shylock”. Gibson also described Key as “a nasty little creep with a nasty evil and vindictive sneer”.

Gibson today said he was “unaware of the connotations” of referring to Key as Shakespeare’s greedy, money-lending Jewish character.    Read more »

More “vote positive” stuff from the Nasty Party

 

eertgtttttttttttt

Oh look!  Legal eagle, trust specialist Greg Presland and the brains behind David Cunliffe was at it a few weeks ago, but look at Steve Gibson, calling John Key “Shylock”.

Shylock is a fictional character in Shakespeare‘s The Merchant of Venice. A Venetian Jewish moneylender, Shylock is the play’s principal antagonist. 

Of course, none of the Anti-semitism that is coming John Key’s way has got anything do do with party officials.  I mean, Greg Presland jumped straight on top of that and said “Eh, we don’t do that sort of thing here.”

Has Scott Simpson been to Dunedin?

My good friend Scott Simpson, my longest standing friend in caucus, appears to have shared his dark arts skills with Michael Woodhouse.

So much for the “sledge pledge”, Clare Curran carries on with the Nasty party plan

David Cunliffe made a sledge pledge in line with his party’s “Vote Positive” slogan.

The Sledge Pledge has been ignored, in what can only be a slight against David Cunliffe’s leadership.

Yesterday it was Grant Robertson getting nasty on John Key.

And today it is Clare Curran proving Labour remains the Nasty Party.

It seems Labour leader David Cunliffe’s “sledge pledge”, in which he promised a “positive” election campaign, hasn’t got through to Dunedin South MP Clare Curran.

Curran has branded rival MPs nasty, homophobic and foul-mouthed in an interview with a student newspaper.

The article was published online on Sunday – as Cunliffe was delivering a keynote speech.

“This election campaign is not about dirty tricks or dodgy deals; smear campaigns and a personality cult,” Cunliffe told delegates, including Curran.

Later, he told reporters the public was fed up with political debate centred on personal attacks rather than policy.

“We want to run a clean, positive campaign.”   Read more »

Labour’s positive message didn’t even last a day

Labour promised a positive campaign:

David Cunliffe’s put his MPs on notice – no sledging of the opposition.

Labour’s leader’s to stay away from slinging personal dirt and run a positive campaign, targeting issues and policies.

David Cunliffe admits it won’t be easy for some veteran combatants like Trevor Mallard.

“It’s always a bit tempting in the parliamentary bear pit to respond and we will need to show some restraint and probably won’t be perfect.

David Cunliffe says the New Zealand public is frustrated by the theatrics during question time in Parliament and this is an attempt to improve the political tone.

That didn’t last long, less than a day.  Read more »

The nasty left, always rewriting history

That was the Tamati Coffey tweet where he found it was lovely to talk about Tory scum.

Julie-Anne Genter Jan Logie wondered out loud who Bill English had to F%%% to get his 6th budget baby born.   At least she had the stones to let that Tweet stand.

But not Tamati Coffey – he’s going to try and pretend it never happened.   Read more »
