Greens’ Co-leader Coddles the Mob — The BFD

Nicole McKeeACT’s Justice spokesperson The Greens’ co-leader’s coddling of violent gang members is a kick in the guts for victims of the Mob. Marama Davidson and Chief Human Rights Commissioner Paul Hunt yesterday spoke at an ‘event for justice’ at the Mongrel Mob’s headquarters. Sharing the stage with Sonny Fatu – a man who was convicted of…

Ghahraman & Davidson’s Selective Take on Human Rights — The BFD | Media

 

Golriz Gharaman and Marama Davidson have many times been the target of protests from Jewish groups, including the Israel Institute of NZ, for looking at the Palestinian situation with one eye shut. They ignore the constant violence and killings by Palestinians and criticise Israel for defending its borders and its people. This from last year.…

Government under-delivery continues with ‘dismal’ social welfare tweaks — Your NZ

The Government year of under-delivery continued last week with an announcement of social welfare reforms tweaks being buried on Friday afternoon when it would have been anticipated that most news coverage would have been of Pike River mine re-entry – which also didn’t deliver. Green co-leader Marama Davidson sounds deflated and resigned to under-delivery this […]

Marama Davidson lays into the blame game — Your NZ

The degree to which Marama Davidson takes her arguments here is alarming, especially for a political party leader. Part 2 – New Zealand was founded on the theft of land, language and identity of indigenous people. This land we are standing on is land we were violently removed from to uphold the same agenda that […]

Greens co-leader says no surplus while floods occur overseas — Kiwiblog

Politik reported Marama Davidson on Morning Report: “I’ll be really, really clear. I don’t think it’s appropriate to have surpluses while we have floodings happening in countries, where we’ve got floods happening, where we’ve got homelessness, I don’t think it’s appropriate that we’re holding onto surpluses in that way.” Just think about this.

MP Marama Davidson has been reported for Verified Bullying of MAGA Youth on Twitter. A reasonable analysis of her actions would be that she was happy to retweet a tweet focussed on skin colour after reading and believing the fake news about the incident but after hearing that it was all lies decided to remove it. Turns out those…

Marama Davidson dismays with vulgar campaign — Your NZ

 

On Monday I posted about Marama Davidson’s use of what is generally refereed to as ‘the c-word’ in a speech in the weekend – Davidson and “women get a free pass” to use C word. Davidson has picked up on publicity over her swearing, now campaigning on it. If women get called the *C* word by […]

Kate Sheppard would reject Marama Davidson’s concept of free speech — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

 

There has been a lot of debate about what ‘ true’ freedom of speech is. Green co-leader Marama Davidson’s interpretation of what ‘true’ freedom of speech is would have prevented Kate Sheppard and other suffragettes around the world from winning women the vote. This is because Marama thinks that it is acceptable to silence viewpoints…

Davidson and “women get a free pass” to use C word — Your NZ

There has been some criticising of Green co-leader Marama Davidson liking a tweet that uses the C word, but that has been defended, saying “Women get a free pass to use it especially in the context it was being used”. Is this another example of different rules of acceptability of language for different groups of […]

Soper calls out Greens lies — Kiwiblog

Barry Soper writes: Greens co-leader Marama Davidson put out a statement about their changed position on the bill saying they’re supporting it “because the confidence and supply agreement holds us to it”. That’s simply not true. There’s no mention of it in the agreement, so her explanation’s more of an excuse than reality. It is…

Greens want to dump referendums so they can force separate Māori wards — Your NZ

Several local bodies have failed in their attempts to impose Māori wards on their constituencies, with voters initiating petitions forcing referendums that subsequently voted strongly against separate democratic privileges – see Māori wards and democracy. Undeterred by determination through the current democratic process, Green co-leader Marama Davidson is promoting “a movement” for “Māori wards right across […]

Green budget leans towards the environment — Your NZ

The Green parts of the budget lean heavily towards environmental causes, with less addressing the social issues that Metiria Turei would have championed, and who her successor Marama Davidson is passionate about. Perhaps this is at least in part due to James Shaw being sole Green leader through the coalition/confidence & supply negotiations as well […]

Marama Davidson on the budget – more ‘grate Greens’ than ‘great Greens’ — Your NZ

Green co-leader Marama Davidson’s response to the budget gushed Green greatness, as well as smooching smugness while ignoring why the Government has a healthy surplus with which to invest in some green projects. Let me reassure the Opposition that this is not a dream,there is nothing wrong with their television sets, and the red pill […]

Greens trash Labour’s chances in Northcote – with allies like this, who needs National? — The Daily Blog

 

First major blunder of Marama’s new leadership. The Greens have bizarrely decided to run in the Northcote by-election.

The double standards of Greens when it comes to human rights — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

Shalom.Kiwi writes: Green MPs Marama Davidson and Golriz Ghahraman demonstrated selective outrage last week, suggesting that their concern for human rights in the Middle East extends only so far as Israel can be blamed. In the space of one week they stridently and publicly condemned Israel for protecting its border and population from Hamas-instigated violent protests,…

Davidson (Green) question ‘not a patsy’ — Your NZ

When the Green Party (James Shaw) announced last month that they would give their parliamentary oral questions to National they reserved the right to still use some of them. They chose to do so today, giving new co-leader Marama Davidson her first crack at holding the Government to account. James Shaw says his co-leader Marama […]

Davidson chosen by Greens as new co-leader — Your NZ

It’s not a surprise to see that Marama Davidson is the new Green co-leader. She was widely expected to take over eight months after Metiria Turei stood down. I can imagine that Davidson is popular within Green membership, but we will have to see whether she appeals to voters generally. Davidson served part of the […]

Greens return leftward, away from National — Your NZ

Green’s sole leader over the last eight months, James Shaw, is seen as relatively moderate, almost centrist-ish (in some ways at least). He is regarded as business friendly, not a particularly NZ green attribute. The Green Party has just chosen a new co-leader, Marama Davidson, by a wide margin of 110 delegate votes to 34 […]

The racism inside the Green party — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

When aspiring co-leader Julie Anne Genter isn’t making sexist, racist and ageist remarks about old white men, some Green Party supporters of aspiring co-leader Marama Davidson are rejecting Julie Anne Genter for being a white woman.

John Armstrong still does the occasional column for 1 News. On this occasion he looks at the Green leadership, and assesses Marama Davidson versus Julie Anne Genter.
