Canada’s opposition Conservative Party has come out strongly in support of the protesting truckers, and entered a motion into parliament to end Justin Trudeau’s vaccine mandates.
If you were expecting the NZ National party to show similar courage and political acumen, you’re right out of luck. Chris Luxon held a press conference this afternoon where his rhetoric on the protesters was underpinned entirely by the false narrative promoted by Jacinda Ardern and her bought media acolytes.
Ardern has been busy with propaganda today. She appeared on govt owned TV and radio stations and was given free rein to broadcast the most egregious misinformation.
Especially so on TV One where “diversity” hire Matty Mclean happily allowed her to malign the protesters and outright lie about who they were and what their aims were. Never once did he challenge the head bobbing arm-waving PM’s rancid distortions, exaggerations and mistruths.
She also appeared on The AM Show, the new breakfast show launched by Channel 3, now owned by the US Discovery network. To her credit, presenter Melissa Chan-Green tried to carry out a coherent and informative interview, but it was completely ruined by Ardern ignoring her questions and talking over her to repeat the propaganda she delivered on TV One.
It was probably one of the worst interviews ever from a sitting PM. Ardern put on a remarkable display of petulance, arrogance and downright dishonesty in attempting to relentlessly smear the protesters as violent and far right.
Ardern’s appearance on he AM Show was one of her worst appearances ever, proving she is rattled by the Wellington freedom protests
Ardern said the protesters had “abused” the media by asking them to tell the truth. How does this plain simple and badly needed request amount to abuse? In another attempted smear, she claimed the protest was inspired from overseas. What? If Melissa had been allowed to ask Ardern to name a protest that hadn’t been inspired from overseas, its a certainty Ardern would not have been able to name one.
It was clear that Ardern is very rattled by the protests and their magnitude. Her desperate lies and distortions show a woman under enormous stress.
If New Zealand had a real opposition, they could have a field day with Ardern’s weak anti-intellectual performances. However, when Luxon held a press conference this afternoon, his rhetoric was pretty much an echo of Ardern’s. (‘white supremacists'[!] etc)
The National party overall is too infiltrated by closet Marxists to wake up to what is going on with Ardern and her media acolytes and their constant false narratives. Either that or they’re just gutless pretenders.
National are apparently too stupid too to realise that many of the events used by the corrupt media to discredit the protests have been false flag events instigated by left wing activists, or just plain lies also injected into the narrative by the same activists. (the same people who attempted to sabotage the organisation of the convoy with false messages on social media).
Luxon’s press conference is below. A far cry from the courageous and definitive rhetoric of his Canadian counterpart, the conference was a reptilian surrender. When it really should have been a chance to confront Ardern on her propaganda campaign, and speak up with truth for the protesters.
Luxon follows the media’s false narrative and disappointingly uses similar rhetoric to Jacinda Ardern to malign the protesters
It shows how badly infiltrated the Nats are when even a left winger takes a more principled and brave stand. Dr Bryce Edwards of the Democracy Project is a leftie with a bit more sense than most of them (not saying much) but he spoke the truth on Radio NZ in a confrontation with extreme left Otago university academic and serial trougher Morgan Godfery.
Dr Edwards had been to the protest (every day he says) so he knew what he was talking about. Godfery just spouted the same unsubstantiated rubbish narrative that every other leftist (and Luxon) is spouting.
In the audio file above, Dr Bryce Edwards, a regular leftie from the Democracy Project, does a better job of defending the protesters and bringing truth to the narrative than Christopher Luxon does.
Ardern’s position is that because they are “bad” people, the protest is discredited and she will therefore not be talking to them or negotiating in any way. This is in line with the thug Trevor Mallard’s instruction to the media that they should not talk to the protesters.
An instruction that has been in most cases followed meekly by Ardern’s palace guard. Except for NewstalkZB’s Barry Soper, who to his credit told thug Mallard where to go.
Video footage of Mallard’s brutal strategies for ending the protest have destroyed Ardern’s “be kind” rhetoric and exposed her worldwide as the ruthless socialist tyrant she really is.
Some people say the false narrative she is pushing today is setting the scene for a major police operation similar to last Thursday’s thuggery. Maybe it is, maybe it is not.
If it happens it will merely confirm what we have always known about Ardern, and that is she is a dreadful and deceitful socialist philistine on a mission to destroy our pluralist democracy and replace it with a virtual one party state subjugated to UN rule.
And apparently Mr “Reset” Luxon is going to do all he can to help her.
