The original wording is in this post. No-one would be concerned about clandestine government watching of suspected Muslim terrorists, but based on this incident in an Auckland Countdown supermarket in September 2021, they haven’t done a good job of it. Who else do they watch apart from Jacinda government opponents? Why do they specifically mention the useless and dangerous Pfizer jabs as a requirement of acceptance? To show loyalty to the Jacinda regime?
