    Not stooping to their level: Fail.

    I do wonder what this adds that hasn’t been said already and in a better way.

    Why do you keep on comparing people to f*scists? Do you think it’s smart or clever or do you think it makes you look like an immature loon that drags down the rest of the site?

    Stick to quality stuff like that MMP post yesterday and drop this nasty crap.

  3. Michael Foxglove 3

    Not a useful analogy.

    To be fair, the Act Party is the party of big business, anti-socialist ideologues, just as the Nazi’s were (i.e. what kind of left wing party bans trade unions and enjoys backing from the country’s biggest industrialists).

    And if Act did get their way, you would see full scale class war in NZ, which would mean the rise of a nasty, armed right wing force.

    We ain’t there yet though sprout ….

      Who? Kyle Chapman and his two mates?

      Anyone who truly believes Kiwis are going to take up arms against their fellow Kiwis needs some serious therapy.

        “Anyone who truly believes Kiwis are going to take up arms against their fellow Kiwis”

        I don’t believe that will happen – kiwis have more common sense than to vote the Act Party in with a majority mandate.

          ACT survives only due to the grace of Epsom National voters who feel their existence will help National. There is no mandate for Rodney beyond that.

          • dan

            Those very Epsom National voters must be crying into their pinots as Rodney’s vision of Supercity is foisted on them. Power for power’s sake has its place but unless the power coincides with a vision acceptable to the community, then the power will be shortlived.
            Rodney’s trip to Disneyland, and his honest, however facetious, ramblings at the $45 breakfast sum the guy up.
            Act party people cannot get too upset; they only have a profile because of the trade-off in Epsom.

    • Ron 4.2

      …and ACT are on record as saying they can’t see any need for any service to be Government run or owned…EXCEPT… Police and Armed Forces. Says it all really.

  5. George D 5

    Godwinned from the get-go.

  6. yeah you’re right, i guess i should should just pretend they’re something they aren’t.
    works for National. and not use actual pics.

    btw, the focus is on hypocrisy if you read the text.

  7. Oh drop it you guys, it is just a classic pic of Rodney that will be trotted out for ever, as it is all his own work.

      You gotta admit if they ever made a Mussolili movie Wodders has the right looks to be a perfect casting for the role…I saw him a few years ago standing on a platform electioneering, his body language and clenched fists were immediately redolent of the Duce. Perfect fit for the camera. Now I admit that doesnt make him even close to being a fascist but hell, I will never forget that image. Wod, if it all turns to custard turn to actung.

  8. Adrian 8

    Don’t forget the doing a runner from home and setting up with Carla Petacci, several decades younger than Il Duce. Just don’t expect the Yellow Dog to get the trains to run on time. Remind me again, how did that all end?

  9. I was going to say you’re scraping the barrel but then realised what blog I am on.| This is commonplace, although Rogernomes comments are by far the most bizarre I have ever read about ACT.

    “the Act Party is the party of big business, anti-socialist ideologues, just as the Nazi’s were (i.e. what kind of left wing party bans trade unions and enjoys backing from the country’s biggest industrialists)”

    The National SOCIALISTS were another branch of socialism and very big on workers movements – Nurembergs rally was very similar to Comrade Stalins little soirees he’s hold in Red Square. 🙂

    “”if Act did get their way, you would see full scale class war in NZ, which would mean the rise of a nasty, armed right wing force””

    ACT doesn’t believe in class war. The only people in Parliament now who believe in that Cold War rhetoric are in the Green Party. Funny that the so called “far right” in NZ are anti big business and racists – a quasi half Green/New Zealand first movement.

    Keep up with the revisionist history Roger etc, and the years in opposition you so thoroughly deserve.

    • felix 9.1

      Oh good lord, where to start?

      Nah, on reflection I think I’ll leave it. It’s perfect as it is.

      Brilliant satire, Clint. Didn’t know you had it in you.

  10. prism 10

    Felix your comments are on the nail. Succinct, apt etc.

  11. prism 11

    Adrian I’m reading about Mussolini. I know your question was rhetorical but this is the crucial move in his end – he wanted to leave the country and the Germans wouldn’t let him pass. The populace turned on him after that.

    • the sprout 11.1

      and oddly enough, despite previously being on the British payroll for years as a spy, they weren’t all that helpful when it came to dying time either 😉

  12. Enjoy, that was free. Your ignorance will be your undoing 🙂
