You think FFF kids are mad at their parents for trashing the planet? That’s nothing compared to their anger when you ask them to walk the talk.

Jacinda Ardern Leads the World Again! — The BFD

We all know that Jacinda Ardern is the World’s Greatest Leader, beloved of the global media for her wisdom and insight. There’s not a virtue signalled, a piety paraded, or a photo opportuned, without “Saint Jacinda” jumping up and down, cooing, “Look at me! Look at me!” She’ll happily don the appropriate ethnicky garb, parade…

Calvin Robinson: The Left and Right are both wrong on pronouns – and it’s distracting us from the real battle that’s going on — Conservative Home

Twitter Mob Goes After Fiction Writers — The BFD

As we all know, Twitter mobs have been going after people for “wrong-think”. It seems that they’re no longer content with that and are now going after fiction authors for “wrong-write”. Reclaim The Net explains. Social media outrage at fictional books is causing contrite writers to revise their lines post-publication. Critics are ignoring the fact…

Go Woke, Go Broke – but Stuff Already Has! — The BFD

Karl du Fresne correctly identifies just how woke and pathetic Stuff has become in the wake of their cringing apology for being racist. Unwittingly, or perhaps wittingly, they have smeared thousands of ex-staff and owners over the decades with their virtue signalling apology. As Bob Jones pointed out we may have witnessed the “greatest commercial…

The Greta/Davos Collusion — Iowa Climate Science Education

 

For those wondering why Greta is so welcome at Davos, an article at Spiked explains Why Davos loves Greta. Excerpts in italics with my bolds. The super-rich and powerful politicians love being told off by supposedly radical greens. Many people think Davos is a case of greedy capitalists and corrupt politicians meeting in dark rooms […]

New Monthly Series – Police Numbers — Kiwiblog

 

This is the first of a new monthly series charting Labour’s progress towards election or coalition promises. I plan to have a number of these in areas such as housing, police, light rail and forestry. The black line shows the promise of 1,800 extra police officers in three years and what a linear trend towards…

Jacinda Ardern, Role Model for Aspiring Muslim Women or Disappointment in Waiting? — The BFD

 

Jacinda Ardern attended the Women’s Council of New Zealand annual conference in Mangere, South Auckland this weekend and was met with enthusiastic support for her suggestion of a Bootcamp for Muslim women who aspire to local and government politics. A young Muslim woman asked Ardern this question. “I work for Auckland Council. How can we…

Jacinda’s Midas Touch with Australia — The BFD | Media

Jacinda is nothing more than a virtue signalling prime minister who has won international acclaim for donning a hijab and hugging people, but telling Australia how to manage its own immigration policy is going to cost us dearly. We have already speculated that her finger-wagging at Australia will result in them making it harder for…

Christmas is Not Woke Enough! — The BFD | Media

Sky News host Chris Kenny says the cancellation of a South Australian council Christmas event is ‘cultural humiliation’ that exposes the “intellectual, moral, social and cultural weakness of the virtue-signallers and the green-left poseurs”.

Auckland councillors declare ‘climate emergency’ — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

 

What is it with governments and local councils these days? Many seem to have a penchant for either coming up with wacky ideas or involving themselves in areas that they think are fashionable, but in truth are no more than virtue signalling. Take the latest from Auckland council declaring a Climate Change Emergency after hours…

U.K. Store Blasted For Selling ‘LGBT’ Sandwich To Honor Pride Month — Daily Wire

The U.K. retail outlet Marks and Spencer thought it was getting woke just in time for “Pride” month — but it turned out that it was instead accused of virtue-signaling to social justice warriors.

The bullying milkmaids of sentimental brutality — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

 

Theodore Dalrymple once wrote that sentimentality is “the progenitor, the godparent, the midwife of brutality” and that the root cause of our contemporary cultural poverty is intellectual dishonesty. He finds more than enough of both in Justin Trudeau, Jacinda Ardern, and their godfather Tony Blair. But their smug sentimentality he traces all the way back…

At least one foreign journalist isn’t blinded by St. Cindy’s halo — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

 

What some curmudgeonly commentators call the “love media” – the lumpen echo chamber of middle-class “progressive” journalists who wept when Trump was elected and waxed furious over Brexit – are practically orgasming themselves to death over Jacinda Ardern. It’s hardly surprising: they haven’t had this kind of political whacking-material since Obama was shoved out of…

Sleeping Midgets throw a party with all their friends — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

 

As I wrote recently, online activists “Sleeping Giants” are really a tiny clique of screeching midgets. Like puffer fish, Sleeping Giants are small, prickly and full of poison, but their real weapon is using trickery to convince their enemies that they are much bigger than they really are. In fact, puffing themselves up to try…

More feel good, but still waiting for actual good — Your NZ

Voter sentiment is changing from not wanting much change to wanting significant change. Some want revolution. Perceived personality of politician has become more important than policies and actions – to an increasing number of voters and also to journalists who are increasingly involved in make the narrative rather than reporting.

MALKIN: Procter Gamble Toxic Sanctimony — Daily Wire

One of the world’s most successful brands committed ideological hara-kiri this week. Recognized around the world as a symbol of manly civility for more than a century, Gillette will now be remembered as the company that did itself in by sacrificing a massive consumer base at the altar of progressivism. To which I say: R.I.P.-C.…

Banning smoking… in homes? — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

 

Remember Orwell’s ‘1984‘? When everyone’s house had a TV screen in it, where government officials could watch what you were up to?

**Satire Titania McGrath is a parody account on twitter and she is bloody funny.

If this muppet really wants to make a splash he could stop flying everywhere — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

Gareth Hughes is big on virtue signalling. He’s released the above video about climate change, basically telling us to stop oil exploration and leave all that wealth and progress in the ground.

Labour love to virtue signal about Islam but just got a cold dose of reality — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

In what has been called a “diplomatic incident” an Iranian delegation refused to shake the hand of Labour MP Jo Luxton. The fact that Labour were even surprised by this insult illustrates how completely ignorant and naive they are about Islam. Clearly, Iranian Green MP Golriz Ghahraman hasn’t bothered to educate them about Islam (which…
