Jacinda’s Year of Delivery — WOBH | Media

 

Matthew Hooton nails it once again. For those still committed to reality-based politics, Ardern’s “year of delivery” is as credible as her earlier promise to be “transformational”.KiwiBuild, the Billion Trees programme and the Provincial Growth Fund handing out only 3 per cent of the money Shane Jones has paraded are the most risible.More seriously, Ardern…

Atkins still promoting and stoking Islamophobia at Whale Oil — Your NZ

Whale Oil has stoked and promoted intolerance against Islam and Muslims for years, with generalised attacks and mass blaming common from both Cameron Slater and Juana Atkins (posting as SB, commenting as spanishbride). Slater has dropped out, but Atkins has kept up her campaign of prejudice and denigration. There was a slight pause when the […]

Child sex offender joins “Drag Queen Story Hour” — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

 

Transgender activists championing the sort of “self-identification” laws proposed in New Zealand and Tasmania – by which any man can legally become a woman more or less on a whim – scoff at anyone who worries about such laws’ potential impact on women and children especially. They sneer at the very idea that predators would…

Labour emboldens unions — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

 

Why are there more strikes under Labour-led governments? Andrew Little seems to think that it is because unions feels that under a Labour-led government their complaints will be ‘heard’. A more unkind explanation would be that unions know that a National-led government is tougher and less likely to give in to strike action. Quote. There…

Individualism sets us free: Part two — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

 

Continued… […] They’re all deceptive sleights of hand for the same idea: collectivism. The same trick is being played in the group application of rights. Women’s rights, transgender rights, Polynesian rights are an equally false dichotomy because rights are an individual concept. Rights exist in partnership with responsibility. Group responsibility has never been practical because,…

Hurt their feelings then give them this book to read — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

 

Forty-eight years ago, I enjoyed a year of flatting in North Sydney. I was adolescently cruising along by ‘pretending to work’ with the main purpose of generally enjoying too much partying and wasting my life. One night I had an epiphany. I decided enough is enough and that I wanted a decent future. I returned to…

Cambridge University votes against Remembrance Sunday — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

 

It is a sad fact that those that do not learn the lessons of history are bound to repeat them. In the UK, the country’s brightest young people have just voted against marking Remembrance Sunday, even though 2018 is exactly 100 years since the end of World War 1, because they are afraid that it…

The ‘progressive’ agenda — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

A reader writes: The content of Elizabeth Warren’s speech in the U.S. sounds very much like what’s emanating from the Jacinda Ardern and the New Zealand Labour Party.

I am sick and tired of the endless ‘beige’ when it comes to New Zealand political parties. Parties falling over each other in their efforts to be “inoffensive”.

Jacinda Ardern has felt a bit of pressure and is now signalling if not walking back Chris Hipkins’ rhetoric over charter schools.

Eight year Socialist experiment fails like all Socialist experiments — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

Let’s face it socialism is just state controlled charity where they force others to pay for the poor. With capitalism, the charity is consensual and often more effective and helpful as rich philanthropists are more interested in giving a man a fishing rod than a fish. A cafe called Panera Cares was an experiment in socialism that was set up…

If any politician can speak out about Iran it’s Golriz Ghahraman — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

For a self-proclaimed refugee from Iran who claims to have fled a hostile regime Golly G is remarkably coy about speaking out against them.

Labour’s fiscal hole isn’t a hole, more of a shortfall…of more than $10b — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

When Steve Joyce brilliantly deployed Cunningham’s law over Labour’s fiscal hole, the commentariat rushing to correct him, and in doing so showed that there was definitely something fishy with the numbers being presented.
