Tony Sayers: RATS IN THE ATTIC AND BATS IN THE BELFRY?
Preface: In New Zealand, now illegitimately named Aotearoa, we enter a new era in journalism. I refer to the impending ‘Hate Speech Laws’.
For that reason, I feel the need to preface this article by stating that the objective of this article is to hold up for scrutiny and condemn, the preoccupation that the Ardern Government has for pitting races against each other.
With reference to the proposed Hate Speech Laws, on 25/06/2021, Justice Minister Kris Faafoi stated: ‘The proposals are also focused on speech inciting hatred in other people towards a group, rather than towards one individual’.
The Labour Government is ‘a group’, however, I am not inciting hatred towards them, they are doing a fine job of that without any help from me. Is this a ploy to suppress any criticism of the government? In this statement, it also appears that an ‘individual’ is not afforded the same protection under the proposed laws. Jacinda Ardern is an individual. Hmmm!.......
