No sympathy for crybaby wife of Green Taliban terrorist

I get a lot of joy from watching these Greenpeace scum get their beans.  They theorise that they don’t need to follow the rules for a greater purpose, but when they are up against a nation state that doesn’t follow rules either, you have a perfect outcome:  they’re whining.

The partner of a New Zealander charged with piracy by Russian officials sobbed yesterday as she told a protest her partner is a peaceful man.

Sarah Watson broke down as she spoke at a rally outside the Russian Embassy in Wellington.

The protest was part of a global Day of Solidarity, with events at more than 170 locations in 45 countries to protest against the arrest of 30 Greenpeace activists.

Among the arrested are New Zealanders Jonathan Beauchamp and David Haussmann.

All on board the Arctic Sunrise ship, which was seized in international waters last month during a protest over drilling for oil in the Arctic, face up to 15 years in prison.

Limiting protests to several hundred meters in NZ waters was deemed the End of Democracy, but that will now appear to be afternoon tea with cakes compared to how the Russians deal with these economic terrorists.  

“These are not crazy nut-bars, they’re normal peaceful people … and they believe in the right to peaceful protest and the right of free speech and I believe they deserve some support from everybody and that includes the New Zealand Government.”

Beauchamp’s niece Zara Mansoor read a letter written by her grandmother, Mary Beauchamp, about her son.

The letter said: “Our John is a caring, piratical, commonsense sort of man and very brave too.

“He is particularly passionate about the Arctic, the ocean and all the creatures that depend on this environment.”

Amnesty International spokeswoman Lara Rapson condemned the piracy charges as having no basis in law “or reality” and called for them to be dropped.

Greenpeace New Zealand board chairwoman Stephanie Mills said the New Zealanders were coping well, but it was a difficult time for their families.

Next time they think it’s a good idea to poke the Russian Bear with a stick, do you think they will admit to being bitten as a reasonable result?

Of course not.

This was a possible outcome.  It has happened.  They got their publicity.  Now stop being bloody cry babies and do your time.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
