Too toxic for the Greens

It appears that Steffan Browning is too toxic even for the Green party.

Their values page on their website has as one of the key values for Green members that they “Engage respectfully, without personal attacks.”

Clearly, Steffan Browning doesn’t have the foggiest idea about those values:

Green MP Steffan Browning was ordered by his party to take down an offensive social media post about former prime minister John Key, Newshub is reporting.

Mr Browning put it up on his Facebook page during Mr Key’s valedictory speech in parliament on Thursday evening.   Read more »

No class from Steffan Browning [UPDATED]

The Green party used to have a rule that they should debate issues not attack people personally.

Unfortunately, after Rod Donald died and Jeanette Fitzsimons left that quietly went by the wayside.   Read more »

Phil Quin on the cringeworthy whining of the left over Castro’s death

We’ve seen Clare Curran’s stupid “legend” statement and Steffan Browning almost shedding a tear over Castro’s death.

Phil Quin is disgusted by it all…and contrary to what Andrew Little says, he’s not a right-winger.

While it is often attributed to him, Mark Twain may not have ever actually said “history doesn’t repeat, but it rhymes”. Whether he uttered the words or not, it certainly needed saying.

Jarring echoes of the far left’s shameful past reverberated around the Twittersphere yesterday in the wake of Fidel Castro’s passing. Current Labour MP Clare Curran and former Alliance Minister Laila Harré were just two of many who took to social media to express grief over the Cuban tyrant’s death. Castro, Curran gushed to her followers as if mourning a beloved guitarist, was a “legend”; Harré went further, asking, “who in our Parliament will be able to move a motion capturing the grief and gratitude of millions for the life of #FidelCasto (sic.)?”. The answer, one hopes, is nobody.

But “grief and gratitude” for what exactly?

The banning of trade unions? Threatening nuclear war against his neighbours? Imprisoning and murdering thousands of journalists, dissenters and unionists? Countless, well document human rights abuses, including the systematic persecution of gays and lesbians?

Or is it the 79,000 extrajudicial killings?

Not just Labour MPs upset at death of Castro, Greens pile in too

Steffan Browning put this on Facebook:

I’m saddened by the death of Fidel Castro. He represented so significantly the battle against the worst of the forces of capitalist greed and the tyranny of oppression by the USA industrial military complex. Cuba has problems but its achievements and humanitarian reach have been significant too, especially considering the blockades and measures against it. I was disappointed by this Stuff announcement that has so much about those celebrating Fidel’s passing, when millions will be mourning.

Green Taliban want to ban weedkiller

drivewaybefore2

The Greens are launching a campaign to halt the use of one of the most commonly used weed killers in the country.

The Spray-free Streets and Parks campaign, which will be launched at Northcote’s Onepoto Domain today, is calling for the Environmental Protection Agency to reassess the safety of glyphosate.

The chemical – first sold in Round Up in the 1970s – is widely used by councils in parks and streets around the country, says Green MP Steffan Browning.

However, despite the World Health Organisation classifying glyphosate as probably carcinogenic, it was still legal to use it on public spaces and around the home, he said. Read more »

Food Nutters Aotearoa, Ctd

There’s quite a storm brewing for the organisers of this week’s Food Nutters Aotearoa conference and speaking tour.

Even Twitter troll Philli Heard is all gee’d up over Huber’s speaking rort.

Maybe Philli Heard could actually ask Don Huber the questions loopy Green Taliban MP Steffan Browning is too scared to ask.   Read more »

Food Nutters Aotearoa, Ctd

unnamed-3

Following on from the post outlining the fawning over anti GMO activists by Green Taliban MP Steffan Browning, I thought I would have a look at the other ‘guest’ speakers.

Key note speaker at the Food Matters Aotearoa conference and speaking tour is discredited International Scientist of the Year 2011 activist researcher Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini.

Another key note speaker is Professor Don Huber. Another international anti-GMO activist, he travels the world warning about a mysterious organism, so scary and disease causing that he’s refusing to share it with the scientific community… even after eight years of no publications or any signs of progress.

The Green Taliban will no doubt call for an urgent Ministerial Inquiry after listening to Huber. But before doing that, they may like to look at the following.

Here’s a hat-tip to a site that has Seven Warning Signes of Bogus Science.  These are;

  1. The discoverer pitches the claim directly to the media
  2. The discoverer says that a powerful establishment is trying to suppress his or her work
  3. The scientific effect involved is nearly impossible to detect
  4. Evidence for a discovery is anecdotal
  5. The discoverer says a belief is credible because it has  endured for centuries
  6. The discoverer has worked in isolation and in secrecy
  7. The discoverer must propose new laws of nature to explain an observation.

Food Nutters Aotearoa

unnamed-2

This coming weekend in Wellington a bunch of food activists nutters will gather at Te Papa.

And the reason? A “controversial conference” to “address all aspects of food security, production and safety to help inform future policy around food production”.

That’s code for anti-GMO, anti-corporate, alternative health and we know best.

It will be a wet dream for the Green Taliban, particularly MP Steffan Browning – who is still trying to redeem himself after signing a petition wanting the WHO to use homeopathic remedies to fight Ebola.

Browning is so excited he’s even spending taxpayer funds to escort them to the Parliamentary Library on Thursday night.   Read more »

Minor Losers of the Year – Steffan Browning

Russel Norman has managed to make the Greens look less looney than they really are, when along comes Steffan Browning who starts saying homeopathy is a potential treatment for Ebola.

Obviously this is not the kind of message that the greens want to have out in public.

They want to keep their really looney policies hidden until they are in government.

So Steffan had a to be spanked, and spanked hard.

“Browning said he did not oppose homeopathy on a personal level.”

The Greens must be wishing they had got Chopper in to be their chief of staff to tell Steffan to harden the f*ck up.

Or that they could send Steffan to West Africa to test homeopathy on Ebola.

Either way it was Steffan Browning who has revealed to swing voters just how looney the Greens people are.

It is just a pity he didn’t do it during the election and then he would have won a winners award for helping destroy the Greens vote.

Face of the day

Looks like the Co-leaders of the Greens have decided to take a leaf out of John Key’s book and have punished one of their MPs for having an opinion different to that of the party. Granted the opinion was Batshit CRAZY but isn’t that an entry requirement for the Greens?

It could have been worse. Imagine if he had been long time friends with someone like Martyn Martin Bradbury? Imagine if Martyn Martin Bradbury had his private e-mails and facebook chats stolen by a hacker. Imagine if the hacker thought that Bradbury was a nasty leftie weasel and handed the stolen e-mails over to Nicky Hager to publish in a book called ‘Ranty Spittle Politics.’ Imagine that in one of the e-mails Martyn Martin said to someone else that his dear close mate Steffan Browning was gunning for the Minister of Health because he was unhappy about the fact that the Minister had celebrated with his employees using stolen bottles of wine taken off a de -registered doctor.

Now THAT would cost him ALL his portfolios and would get him stripped of his position as a Cabinet minister wouldn’t it? ( hypothetically )
