In the midst of domestic news, the latest turn in the New Zealand mass murder slipped by my radar. It turns out that one of those intersectionality virtuous Muslim clerics, *publicly* blamed the Jews. This was not a fringe figure; he is a prominent leader.
The socialist prime minister was not asked for comment, nor did she find a camera to get in front of and forcefully intone that this was not New Zealander values and a person who expresses such views is not a real New Zealander. After all, the red-green coalition is working according to plan, consolidating state power through the forms of the democracy they are hollowing out.
The New Zealand parliament not only voted 199-1 to confiscate all modern firearms from citizens, they went further and spit in citizens’ faces by passing a second law to prohibit the export sales of the modern firearms. This was so that they could punish all owners by taking their property, disarming them, and handing them only a fraction of the market value of the seized property.
In the wake of the shootings, New Zealand has rushed through legislation to tighten firearms regulations, removing semi-automatic weapons from circulation through a buy-back scheme, prohibition and harsh prison sentences.
On Friday, the government closed a potential loophole by extending the law to cover exports of semi-automatic weapons, magazines and parts.
It shuts off the possibility of gun owners snubbing the buyback scheme and selling their now-illegal firearms to overseas buyers for more money.
This red scheme renders the population more vulnerable to thugs, as intended. Protection will now be limited to revolvers, some shotguns, and lever action rifles. Meanwhile, the green faction, the Islamists, are empowered to openly express the red faction’s Jew-hatred. The Muslim community leader in NZ was not expressing a fringe idea, not from the perspective of Muslims across the region from which this imported community comes:
See a Qatari sociologist blame Jews for the New Zealand attack:
See a Sudanese Muslim cleric blame Jews for the New Zealand attack, and call them enemies of both Muslims and Christians:
See the NZ Chief Censor (yes that is a real thing) justify banning the manifesto of the man who murdered 50 Muslims, while defending the continuing publication of the manifesto of a man who murdered 6 *million* Jews. As another Ricochet member pointed out, the manifesto had to be suppressed (unlike Mein Kampf) because it had too many details that pointed away from President Trump. The Chief Censor effectively admits this in his rationale. He will take the actual manifesto off the table so that he can use Charlottesville as a talking point instead.
The left is barely pretending to defend liberty any longer. They make clear their hatred for effective opposition, including effective organizing beliefs or identities that can content for the power the left covets. The red-green coalition is firmly in control of New Zealand today. It is nearly as ascendant in the Democratic Party in the United States.
Worried? Organize. Dominate from the county party up. Vote in every freakin’ election.
