“This Country is Lost” A German writer’s last words

Susanne Kablitz was a well known German libertarian writer and the owner of the Jeweler publishing house as well as editor-in-chief of the Jewel magazine. She was the author of the book “To the last breath” and co-author of “The freedom committed”. She was also a politician and head of the “Party der Vernunft” (PDV.) If rumours are true, the 47-year-old committed suicide and the last article she wrote shortly before her death  had the headline ” This Country is Lost.”

On Saturday, February 11th, she took her life with only 47 years. The voluntary death of a human being also leaves behind a sense of hopelessness. Susanne Kablitz was a fighter, but sometimes fighters lose their strength.

Her words in the article reveal a woman who felt that no matter what she did it was all in vain; that no matter what she said nothing would change. They are the words of a woman at the end of her rope mentally and emotionally, trying to fight a battle that she has only now realised is unwinnable. In some ways, it is as much Germany’s suicide note as it is hers.

Translated from German by Google Translate:

This Country is lost

…In the meantime, I feel so much the same – no matter what you try to do, most people around the world…believe firmly in authority, in the deity of the state, in the guilt, self-denial and Are deeply rooted in their hatred of themselves.

No matter how much you point out that most people are on the way to hell, nothing changes. On the contrary. One even gets insulted, smiled and denied.

A few weeks ago, the national socialist Bernd Höcke, at an event in Dresden, told me about the culprit of the Germans. He said, among other things, “We Germans, our people, are the only people in the world who have planted a monument of disgrace in the heart of their capital” and “the Merkel government has mutated into a regime

Guest Post: The real threat to Ahmadiyya Muslims like Mehpara Khan

Ahmadi Mosque in Chakwal December 2016 under attack

Guest Post:

One highly relevant fact about Mehpara Khan, the PR person who has stirred up a ruckus with her Facebook message alleging “anti-Muslim” prejudice:

She is a member of the Ahmadiyya branch of the faith. This is revealed throughout her Twitter and Facebook postings. The Mosque with Open days at Dalgety Street Manukau is the headquarters of the Ahmadiyya. SB has written about them and visited the Mosque.

The threat to Ahmadiyya Muslims most emphatically does not come from other Kiwis. It comes from other Muslims. Mehpara Khan and her friends are hated, rejected and persecuted as heretics and infidels throughout the Muslim world.

She had to call her Ahmadi best friend an infidel to get a Pakistani passport

This is a post written by a Muslim woman who is best friends with a Muslim from the Ahmadiyya sect. The Islamic country of Pakistan does not recognise the Ahmadiyya as true Muslims so she was forced to make a choice.

If you are a conscientious , or if you don’t live under a rock, it is hard to ever forget or ignore the kind of infuriating discrimination and shameful persecution that members of the Ahmadiyya community suffer in our country.

You console yourself by thinking, “at least I personally don’t discriminate or persecute”.

And, if you’re outspoken, you think, “I won’t and don’t ever let it happen in front of me”.

But then, there is a point in time when you are forced by the lottery of birth, and the Constitution of Pakistan, to become party to the state-sponsored discrimination of Ahmadis.

This is the time when you go to perform a simple act of citizenship: get or renew a passport.

The last time I got a passport back home, I was able to duck the question: you know the one right at the end where you have to sign to attest to the accuracy of all information on your application form — and that Ahmadis are infidels.

“I Can’t Live Without Love

My Loneliness Destroyed Me.”

 “Jenny comforts me. She is the best therapist for me. She has completely changed my life, my thinking, my definition of freedom, of love and partnership.” Dirk and Jenny have a fixed daily schedule, every evening at 6 pm they are sitting on the sofa watching television. “With my ex-wives I always had to fight for love. Not with Jenny. With her I found peace.”

Many of us abandon our dolls, boxing up our G.I. Joes and Barbies and banishing them to the basement once we hit a certain age and lose interest in them, or find it is no longer socially acceptable to play with dolls. But other people develop a fascination with the inanimate objects that continues into adulthood. Dolls are really interesting because they look like us, and you can project your dreams on them, your wants, your desires, your losses, whatever they are – and the dolls can mirror them back.

Thought for the day

Today is Feral Free Friday, but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about the pervading culture of “being offended”.

We have seen yesterday Metiria Turei, cloaked in in her shield of sanctimony claiming that this sentence is racist:

“I’m actually insulted to be lectured about how out of touch I am with average New Zealand by a list MP who has no constituents, lives in a castle and comes to the House in $2000 designer jackets and tells me I’m out of touch,”

This post is not about that comment precisely that is for one at 0830. Rather is shows the pervading culture of some segments of our society to become offended or outraged over what are really just a few words.

In Metiria Turei’s case the racism is in her mind. There is not a single mention or race, or maori in those few words by Anne Tolley and yet Metiria Turei reaches for the racism claim.

Likewise the so-called “tough” coasters were upset to the point of issuing death threats, rape threats, violence threats on the basis of 8 words in a headline, nevermind the post actually focussed on media portrayal of a police chase. A reporter from a Greymouth newspaper with less readers than read this website in an hour fuelled the outrage by the portrayal that the whole article was aimed at the young man who died. Just 8 words and my death is called for.

These same people are now writing to people who book ads through Google in an attempt to hurt me financially. These coaster aren’t tough, they are thin-skinned bullies bred on a diet of entitle-itis and a good dose of feral outrage.

We saw a similar behaviour with Willie and JT…outrage cascading into threats, financial attacks and bullying. Radio Live caved to the bullying on social media, more fool them. They are now exposed as a soft target, because bullies always pick on the weak.

Where does this come from?

Well I believe it comes from what is loosely termed “political correctness”…or as Chet Beates defined in Son of a Gun : The Life and Times of a Lifer Brat (2007):

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

It is believed that this comment came from a student at Texas A&M University pre 2006, but is accurately summarises the problem we are developing.  Read more »

Intolerant liberal ratbags

We see this here…the liberal left shouting down anyone who dares voice an opinion against what they think.

We saw it with the boycott organised against Willie and JT…the left always go for your money…they have tried the same with me several times.

Check out the comments at The Daily blog or the Standard recently when discussing me or David Farrar and you will see death wishes upon us, ranting that we should be silenced and so forth.

The liberal left are not fans of free speech and now their terror tactics are starting to bite.

[N]ot only Christians, but also Muslims and Jews, increasingly feel they are no longer free to express any belief, no matter how deeply felt, that runs counter to the prevailing fashions for superficial “tolerance” and “equality” (terms which no longer bear their dictionary meaning but are part of a political jargon in which only certain views, and certain groups, count as legitimate).

Only 50 years ago, liberals supported “alternative culture”; they manned the barricades in protest against the establishment position on war, race and feminism. Today, liberals abhor any alternative to their credo. No one should offer an opinion that runs against the grain on issues that liberals consider “set in stone”, such as sexuality or the sanctity of life.

Intolerance is no longer the prerogative of overt racists and other bigots – it is state-sanctioned. It is no longer the case that the authorities are impartial on matters of belief, and will intervene to protect the interests and heritage of the weak. When it comes to crushing the rights of those who dissent from the new orthodoxy, politicians and bureaucrats alike are in the forefront of the attacks, not the defence.

I believe that religious liberty is mean­ingless if religious subcultures do not have the right to practise and preach according to their beliefs. These views – for example, on abortion, adoption, divorce, marriage, promiscuity and euthanasia – may be unfashionable. They certainly will strike many liberal-minded outsiders as harsh, impractical, outmoded, and irrelevant.

But that is not the point. Adherents of these beliefs should not face life-ruining disadvantages. They should not have to close their businesses, as happened to the Christian couple who said only married heterosexual couples could stay at their bed and breakfast. They should not lose their jobs, which was the case of the registrar who refused to marry gays. When Britain was fighting for its life in the Second World War, it never forced pacifists to bear arms. So why force the closure of a Catholic adoption agency that for almost 150 years has placed some of society’s most vulnerable children with loving parents?   Read more »

PPTA bullying on Charter Schools

Th PPTA has extensive rules and policy papers about bullying in schools, and even on paper that talks about teachers being the new targets of bullies.

This paper refers to both bullying and harassment of teachers. The School Anti-Violence Toolkit, published by the union earlier this year, used the umbrella term “violence” to cover all forms of bullying and harassment, and preferred the term “harassment” when discussing behaviour directed at teachers by students. However, teachers themselves are increasingly using the term “bullying” to describe the targeted aggressive behaviour they experience from both students and adults in schools.

Which perfectly explains the PPTA’s own attitude towards charter schools.

Northland teachers have been banned by their union from any interaction with charter school staff, in a move a Whangarei charter school chief executive has described as “bully tactics”.

The Post-Primary Teachers Association has instructed members to deny charter school staff and management professional, sporting or cultural interactions or support.

Government-funded like state schools, charter schools are not operated by the Ministry of Education but by sponsors such as iwi, not-for-profit organisations, businesses or existing education providers.  Read more »

All about Beau Murrah

UPDATE: Beau Murrah has now apologised for his offensive comments. However, as I believe in context, removing this post really isn’t an option as it would remove context. To remove it would only leave an apology hanging without the context in which it was given. That could lead to further injustice as people could assume that something far worse was said.

Yesterday I posted a quiz on Facebook that works out where in the US political spectrum you sit. That attracted a number of comments mostly about politics. Then out of the blue this comment was left by someone called Beau Murrah:

There were no trolling comments before that comment, but what galled me was his calling for me to consider “pulling a Charlotte Dawson”.

For those who aren’t aware, last week, after constant harassment on Twitter my friend Charlotte Dawson made an attempt on her own life.

Yesterday was also World Suicide Prevention Day.

So on Suicide Prevention day and just a day after I was host on The Nutters Club dealing with tough mental health issues, I have a random person I have never met encouraging me to kill myself. Lovely.

What is worse is that this person is, according to his LinkedIn profile, was previously employed as a law clerk for [redacted, former employer is innocent party], a prominent ACC specialist lawyer.  [redacted, former employer is innocent party] is prominent in criticising and attacking ACC with numerous quotes in the media from himself.

Beau Murrah says on his LinkedIn profile:

I have a strong interest in Law and Medicine and Public Health Law. I have particular interests in topics such as drug reform, regulation of the pharmaceutical industry, disability law and the use of New Zealand Sign Language as an official language.

I have greatly enjoyed gaining experience in the ACC field as a law clerk for an experienced advocate. I wish to build upon this in the future ideally working in a law and health related field.

Beau Murrah - Turtle molester

Beau Murrah – Turtle Molester

And yet he tells people they should go kill themselves. I’m not sure that he has grasped the sensitive nature of dealing with mental health issues nor ACC with comments to people on their facebook page that they should kill themselves.

Worse still though is his resignation statement from Young NZ First where he states:

Murrah also fired a few parting shots at the NZ First Party, describing a culture of “incompetence, bullying, and intimidation” within the party. “I joined the party because I supported a lot of their economic policy, but when you get in there it’s an incompetent, shadowy circus.”

He seems to like this own bullying and intimidation. Evil and corrupt Winston Peters may be but i bet he has never told someone to go and kill themselves…on World Suicide Prevention Day.

When confronted with the appalling nature of wishing someone would kill themselves he then said:

I wasn’t suggesting you make a suicide attempt but I was wondering if you were considering it since I was still under the impression you were a gutless bludger feeding on internet aggravation. I probably would say any/all of these things to your face by the way.

So he wasn’t suggesting making an attempt, but then asks if I am considering it.

Beau Murrah is a nasty piece work and certainly isn’t someone who should be working with sensitive ACC claimants while he holds such contemptable views on suicide and mental health issues.

His actions certainly aren’t the actions of a someone considering their “professionals” as they need to be a fit and proper person. Suggesting someone kills themselves and attacking them for their mental health issues and using terms such as mentally ill dole bludger when you are acting as an ACC advocate really doesn’t make the grade for “fit and proper”.

He gloats though that he “successfully trolled” me. Perhaps he won’t be gloating so much now. I did warn him NFWAB.

Mental health issues like depression, suicide and everything else that goes along with that are hard enough to deal with on a daily basis without cocksmokers like Beau Murrah coming along and having fun trolling.

I am just lucky that I am somewhat more resilient than other people. He needs to learn that sometimes the bully gets a smacking. Dollars to donuts though he claimed he was “fraped“. But sometimes you have to be held to account.

UPDATE: Beau Murrah has now apologised for his offensive comments. However, as I believe in context, removing this post really isn’t an option as it would remove context. To remove it would only leave an apology hanging without the context in which it was given. That could lead to further injustice as people could assume that something far worse was said.

Does Len Brown even know what happens in his Council?

The Auckland Council is having to pay out over $300,000 for the actions of a bullying senior manager. Quite apart from the fact that the bully should be coughing out of his own pocket, after all it was he who did the bullying not the ratepayer, you have to wonder of Len Brown has actually got even a single clue as to what is going on inside his council.

A spokeswoman for Mayor Len Brown said the mayoral office was unaware of the matter and would not comment on employment matters.

Really?

Doesn’t Len Brown have a “no surprises” agreement with his Chief Executive?

Council chief executive Doug McKay said the matter was an employment issue that was subject to an investigation and had been resolved.

Mr McKay declined to comment on the payments to the two whistleblowers who resigned, and on other issues raised by the Weekend Herald.

I would have though that over $300,000 in payouts was a fucking big surprise, further I would hazard a guess that those amounts are way above normal sign of authority by the Chief Executive.

Ports Update, Ctd

Updated – 0912

via the tipline

The tipline is humming, I have many voicemails and emails about the situation down at the Port this morning.

Illegal Pickets on Roadways

The Maritime Union are now running illegal pickets this morning at every entrance to Ports of Auckland including Captain Cook Wharf. The terminal was due to open at 0730 for road transfers, and instead drivers were faced with a wall of picketers blocking the road. The Police are in attendance. Traffic is blocked up all along Tamaki Drive, and back into the city.

This represents a major change in tactics, and shows that the Aussies are now running the show. The efforts of MUNZ and CTU appear to have been cast asideand replaced by a more militant and potentially violent confrontation.

Wait for the reports of poor protesters injured by the Police, and drivers intimidated by MUNZ members. The Aussies will be well out of the way, but you can be sure that the influence has come from them, and that they are now pulling the strings.

Gone is the moderate approach promoted by the MUNZ members that their action and presence at the wharf was a demonstration, not a picket.

The action moves from a dispute about flexibility and working conditions to an ego driven defence of the world of Trade Unions.

Access for Workers difficult

Many of the IEA’s were granted access to the wharf through other entrances in order to protect themselves and their cars from MUNZ bullying.

This morning The Maritime Union have been verbally attacking and bullying more than 50% of the people who work at the port who are not union.  That includes cleaners, office staff, payroll, managers, mechanics etc and those who are not union but are still being made redundant.

Union Intimidation

During the staged picket this morning they surrounded a woman’s car and shook it while she was inside it.  The woman has been posting comments here telling the truth about and they’ve identified her by some of her comments. As a result they have decided to bully and intimidate her. This is disgraceful behaviour from the maritim Union thugs and bullies.

The Maritime Union continue their love of threats and confrontational bullying even though it is that which is sealing the lid of their coffin.

The wonder is that Labour has decided to support people who will bully and intimidate women who are guilty of only expressing a view.
