The openly Marxist Labour/Green partnership that runs New Zealand is exploiting a series of significant events – the Christchurch shooting, the contrived Covid-19 scare, and the orchestrated George Floyd protests – to create a totalitarian state. The strategy relies heavily on fear, division and the suppression of dissent.
The creation of a police state
The shooting on 15 March 2019 of 51 men in two Christchurch mosques by a much-travelled Australian (some say CIA agent), set in train a series of measures by the government which charted a seemingly inexorable course towards the establishment of a police state.
- Draconian censorship is immediately imposed, to suppress access to the ‘harmful’ footage of the shooting or the shooter’s ‘manifesto’, which incidentally showed him to be a far-left ecoterrorist. Websites around the world which showed the video were blocked and threatened, including Zero Hedge and Natural News , and there were threats of long jail sentences for non-compliant New Zealanders. (The video is by no means as gruesome as some of the ISIS footage readily available on the web.)
- NZ is repeatedly told, particularly by members of the Green Party, that it is a hateful nation of racists, white supremacists and Islamophobes.
- The very day of the shooting the government announces the fast-tracking of completely unflagged gun laws. There is no response to statements from gang leaders that they won’t be giving up any guns.
- A fast-tracked review of hate speech laws is announced. Similar laws, or rather policies, in the UK have resulted in the police being called out every time someone decides they’re offended. Will we be arrested for tweeting that men aren’t women, or for comparing Jacinda Ardern to Pol Pot?
- The roll-out of a six-month armed police patrol trial saw units deployed 75 times a day in their first five weeks, in Manakau, Waikato and Canterbury (in comparison, last year Armed Offenders Squads were called out on average 1.3 times a day across Auckland, Waikato, and Canterbury).
- Armed police have been visiting the homes of law-abiding citizens, especially licensed gun-owners and critics of the government’s proposed gun law. Political dissidents are also attracting unwarranted police attention.
- A state of emergency is declared (23 March 2020) with the suspension of civil liberties, a few days after the United Kingdom had actually downgraded the COVID threat as no longer highly dangerous, and there were data available that showed that lockdowns are ineffective at reducing Covid-19 deaths. (NZ’s response was the most stringent, the most damaging, in the world).
- New Zealanders are actively, constantly, encouraged to ‘be kind’ but to dob in their neighbours for breakdown breaches.
- There is a heavy police presence during the lockdown, chiefly observed by transgressors, such as those driving to the beach to take their dog for a run.
- 13 May 2020, NZ passes the Covid-19 Response Act, which gives the government, the police and ‘authorised persons’ undreamed of powers for up to two years. These include powers of entry and, in the case of the police, without the need for a warrant.
- 10 June 2020 the RNZAF gives notice of a military exercise across the central North Island, involving helicopters firing flares and carrying around artillery. From the Ministry of Defence facebook page: ‘The exercise includes how to deal with protests, either by individuals or groups and has been long planned.“‘
- 17 June 2020, Jacinda Ardern announces that the military will have oversight of quarantine measures. This opens the way to using the military for searches of private homes – is New Zealand preparing for martial law? Given that we accepted the lockdown on the back of a cold, will New Zealanders resist martial law?
- June 2020, New Zealand has 4 shootings in 3 days, with a policeman shot dead.
The combination of:
- the unwarranted censorship after the Christchurch event, accompanied by threats of long prison sentences,
- the normalisation of armed police calling at family homes for flimsy reasons,
- the role of the police during the lockdown, and
- the introduction of new hate speech laws
all serve to create fear in would-be dissidents and protesters.
