The Founding Fathers & Slavery: It Was Complicated

History has also shown, time and again, that the most dangerous times are when previously oppressive regimes and institutions are liberalised. Retribution by newly-freed slaves was a very real prospect. Jefferson’s description of slavery as “holding a wolf by its ears” was starkly demonstrated in the bloody Haitian revolution a few years later . . .

The Choreography of Tyranny

Honestly, I was expecting more. Much more. To hear the Left tell it, this was going to be an event to rival the very best the world’s dictators – past and present – could offer. That’s why I tuned-in . . .

What is Terrorism? Why Words Matter

This is not just a bland semantic argument. Too broad a definition of terrorism facilitates the persecution of political enemies. For instance, the Chinese government labels Uighur Muslims terrorists in order to justify its crackdown . . .

Danielle McLaughlin: NZ’s Fake-News Writeress in Chief

Ms. McLaughlin needs to cough-up some hard facts as supporting evidence of her spurious journalistic claims and the Sunday Star Times and Stuff should demand that she does . . .

Conscripting History

When a historian fails to mention initiatives such as these (all of them signs of a women’s movement on a march to victory, not defeat) it is almost always a sign that the historical narrative is being tailored to fit a contemporary political purpose . . .

Ardern and Peters Call to Appease the Psychopaths of Iran for Oil

Our PM has been so busy indulging in psychobabble about “wellbeing” and all that Woman’s Weekly stuff, that she failed to notice that the The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was a piece of chronic appeasement that gave Iran a direct path to a nuclear weapon . . .

Popular Leaders & Policy Failures: Australia’s Been There Already

Democracy or Slobocracy? It’s an Old Question.

The most obvious objection, but also the least politically correct, is that Little’s reforms will end up advantaging Labour and the Greens. All the historical evidence suggests that the greater the turnout in a New Zealand general election, the more likely it is that a left-wing government will be returned . . .

Does WARF Know that Adolf Hitler and Islam Were Allies?

Wellington Against Racism and Fascism (WARF), a little group which formed after the NZ Christchurch shootings, seems set on steadily pushing a very lop-sided narrative which is the group’s raison d’être:

Racism is entrenched in this country. We need to know the history of this land since it was annexed by the British State. Christchurch didn’t happen in a vacuum.

The British State? I think this two-bit group of revisionist historians mean the great British Empire.

Aside from that ham-fisted phrasing, the group’s spokesperson, Ana Cocker, claims that “fascist ideology is widespread”. After again parroting their favourite patter, “Christchurch did not happen in a vacuum”, Cocker emphasised the group’s so-called anti-fascist credo with these words:

The Christchurch attack needs to be understood as part of a global right-wing extremist movement. There are striking parallels between the ways these groups organise today and the rise of fascism in Europe in the ‘20s.

WARF, judging by statements on its website and Twitter account (with its tiny smattering of followers), is little more than an anti-white hate group. Under the ‘About Us’ label, its website states:

We are a coalition formed in Poneke (Wellington) after the fascist attack in Christchurch. We oppose fascism, racism, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism, and call for the removal of all barriers for refugees and migrants.

One cannot, and should not, let this mangled credo from WARF pass, not if they’ve written it without being blindly under the influence, hopefully only of alcohol, but I have my doubts.

I too hate fascism - so much so that it’s worth pointing out to WARF that the term “Islamophobia” is an invention of the Islamofascists, who happen to be the most virulent anti-Semites on this planet. Pascal Bruckner, the French philosopher, wrote:

“At the end of the 1970s, Iranian fundamentalists invented the term ‘Islamophobia’ formed in analogy to ‘xenophobia’. The aim of this word was to declare Islam inviolate. Whoever crosses this border is deemed a racist. This term, which is worthy of totalitarian propaganda, is deliberately unspecific about whether it refers to a religion, a belief system or its faithful adherents around the world.”
