Face of the day

Auckland Students for Choice spokeswoman Justine Rose,said the Pro-Life club were an embarrassment

Today’s face of the day is an activist extraordinaire. She was front and centre of the move to silence, delegitimise, disaffiliate and remove the peaceful Auckland University Pro-Life group and now it has been revealed that she and her Palestinian mate have almost single-handedly convinced Lorde to cancel her concert in Israel.

I can only hope that one day she will become like David Horowitz who was brought up as a socialist and became a very effective activist for the Left but who later in life put his skills to better use defending freedom of speech. The right tend to be useless at activism and it is often experienced former Left-wing activists like David Horowitz who know how to fight fire with fire.

Lorde’s Israel concert cancellation brought on by a BDS letter…co-penned by a Jew

Justine Sachs and Nadia Abu-Shanab co-wrote a letter to music icon Lorde published on online New Zealand -based news source Spinoff which allegedly prompted the singer to cancel her Tel Aviv concert due in 2018.[…]

“Dear Lorde … we’re two young women based in Aotearoa, one Jewish, one Palestinian.

Today, millions of people stand opposed to the Israeli government’s policies of oppression, ethnic cleansing, human rights violations, occupation and apartheid. As part of this struggle, we believe that an economic, intellectual and artistic boycott is an effective way of speaking out against these crimes. This worked very effectively against apartheid in South Africa, and we hope it can work again.

We can play an important role in challenging injustice today. We urge you to act in the spirit of progressive New Zealanders who came before you and continue their legacy.”

A convincing little letter where they have not hesitated to tell multiple lies in order to get the desired result. Pity Lorde couldn’t be bothered doing some basic fact-checking. She should have a word with the Auckland University Pro-life group to find out how they have been smeared as being disruptive, threatening and coercive as part of the campaign to get rid of them.
