We should be supporting everyone’s wellbeing

The Greens really are the gift that keeps on giving.  Political activists that have no clue about the real world.  This from a woman who uses the C word in public and then tries to “reclaim” the word because she says it’s empowering.  Quote:

Green co-leader Marama Davidson has called on the “bros” to “delete” themselves in a Twitter rant criticising the treatment of ethnic communities in New Zealand.

In a late-night tirade, Ms Davidson said ethnic communities had been treated like “economic units” long before the release of secret phone recordings by former National MP Jami-Lee Ross highlighted an alleged cash-for-candidate system.  End of quote.

Here’s the tweet.  Quote:

“So bro so-called political analysts what say you about political systems which continue to cover up power abusers and the sidestep the issue as if it’s a distraction to actual politics. Get out. Delete yourselves.”  End of quote.

What does that mean Marama, ‘delete yourselves’?  Is she suggesting they take their own life?  Wow.  So much for kindness in politics.

Chloe Swarbrick has been advocating hard for mental health, I wonder how she feels about Marama’s outburst.

This from the Greens’ website.  Quote:

“We need to be removing the stigma around mental health and supporting everyone’s wellbeing.” – Chlöe Swarbrick MP.  End of quote.

Finally, a Green party statement I can get on board with.  We should be supporting everyone’s wellbeing.

Marama also takes a swipe about racism with this tweet in the series.  Quote:

To be honest NZ had reduced “immigrant communities” meaning Asian and POC peoples, to discussions of economic units long before the release of #JLR tapes. White immigrants have NEVER been slayed under this same dehumanising talk. @TaikaWaititi was always right.  End of quote.

I guess she’s referring to the comments exchanged between Simon Bridges and Jami-Lee Ross about Chinese being more valuable than Indians.

In the same conversation, Bridges was also talking about culling MPs and later refers to letting go Finlayson and Carter.  Both are white males, but that’s clearly not a problem for Marama Davidson.  She will only speak out against discrimination if it involves a minority group.

White males are fair game it would seem.
