imperator fishNormally we’d put “ImperatorFish: ” because, well, the post come from that site and purportedly from the fertile satirical mind of Scott Yorke. But in this case it is clear that someone else must have written the post. They couldn’t get the sequence of events right and they admitted to an act that a lawyer (as such a fine upstanding and moral part of community) would never admit to. We will reprint the content here so people can help us find out why Scott has been hacked. Also because we have permission to reproduce content from that site even when it isn’t intellectual…. In fact it sounds like the actual Cameron Slater when he is being coherent and deigns to write.

The face of a killer: of democracy. Are your children safe?

We should not be surprised that the police won’t prosecute Labour Party leader David Cunliffe for his blatant breach of the law. Those socialists have always found ways to exempt themselves from the same laws that apply to hard-working honest God-fearing citizens like you and me.

In case you hadn’t heard the news, Cunliffe sent a tweet on the day of the Christchurch East byelection, urging people to vote for the Labour candidate, Poto Williams. Why he thought he needed to do this isn’t clear, since Williams was always going to win. The support for Labour in some parts of the country is difficult to account for. I suspect that in some parts of New Zealand there may well be a link to left-wing ideals and water fluoridation, but Christchurch’s water isn’t fluoridated, so they must be dosing the people there with something else.

Anyway, sending political tweets on the day of a byelection is about the most heinous thing a person can do. I’m not suggesting it’s up there with murder or manslaughter, but it’s certainly at least as serious as aggravated robbery, because it really is a form of theft, or at least attempted theft. Labour tried to steal the Christchurch East byelection by the most evil and duplicitous of means: someone sending a message on Twitter.

Oh, but I took the tweet down immediately, Cunliffe says. It was just a careless mistake. But who can believe such a story? The left are masters of subverting democracy, which is why we should never cut any of the bastards any slack. Look at what’s going on in Auckland with Len Brown.

Because the left are much more practised at this sort of thing, I’ve always argued that we should go easy on those of the right who get caught breaking the rules, because they start from an unfair advantage. That’s while Len Brown’s behaviour is reprehensible; while in failing to declare a junket to the Gold Coast Cameron Brewer is guilty of no more than trying to play catch-up.

But back to Cunliffe. He’s been warned by police, when they should have thrown him in jail, which raises alarming questions about the integrity of our police. Aren’t they supposed to stop the bad guys? Cunliffe should have been arrested on the spot and hauled away to the cells.

Someone I talked to about this reckoned it was just a dumb mistake, and that the police had better things to do with their time than chase people sending messages on Twitter. This fellow even claimed that the election day prohibition was a stupid law that ought to be abolished. I told him I didn’t like what he was suggesting. Should people now be free to break the law just because the law is stupid or wrong? Sure, this man said, why not? If a law is wrong, then civil disobedience may in some cases be justifiable.

I became increasingly alarmed as this conversation continued, to the point where I eventually called the police. I explained to the operator that the person I was engaged in debate with was claiming it might be justifiable to break the law; but they refused to take action until he had actually broken the law. That struck me as a remarkably narrow and legalistic interpretation of the law. Surely we should be able to lock away people who might one day break the law, otherwise how can we hope to keep our communities safe?

In the end I took matters into my own hands. That fellow won’t be troubling us any more, and I expect I’ll have a bumper vegetable harvest next season. It was all I could do to keep my community safe, though I don’t regard myself as a hero.

David Cunliffe is certainly no hero, nor is he a freedom-fighter, because the crime he committed threatens the very core of our democratic system. Let’s focus on what he did. He went on Twitter, and then he sent a tweet. A tweet! If I’d been the police commissioner I’d have prosecuted him, and if I’d been the judge in the case I’d have thrown him in prison for a very long time, even though the legislation only prescribes a fine. Someone has to make a stand against this sort of thing, and hanging is too good for these monsters. You know that if these people were in power it would be us against the wall, so all’s fair in love and war.

I see Cunliffe hasn’t learned his lesson, either. Any other person would have taken the warning to heart and desisted from making any other public appearances for the duration of this parliamentary term. But since sending that infamous tweet David Cunliffe has actually sent a number of other tweets! He’s even spoken in Parliament and at a number of public meetings. The man is thumbing his nose at the authorities, as if he is completely above the law. And isn’t he?

That’s why it’s time we changed the law to stop this sort of thing. All of it. The whole works. Let’s just stop it all right now. Everything vaguely leftish. Because they can’t be trusted.

    Heh! Classic . . . but be careful what you wish for:

    . . . I became increasingly alarmed as this conversation continued, to the point where I eventually called the police. I explained to the operator that the person I was engaged in debate with was claiming it might be justifiable to break the law; but they refused to take action until he had actually broken the law. That struck me as a remarkably narrow and legalistic interpretation of the law. Surely we should be able to lock away people who might one day break the law, otherwise how can we hope to keep our communities safe? . . .

    . . . there seems little doubt our authorities are already targeting likely “criminals” with news of John Key’s strategic election year invitation to Bill, Cathy and wee Georgie.

    Normally I would oppose capital punishment without trial, but this case is so serious…………

  5. AmaKiwi 5

    The author is demented and dangerous.

    The only police action required is to find out who wrote this and keep a close eye on them.

  6. Brilliant! Shared on FB!

  7. What a load of unadulterated crap. The political rightwing fascists are the real dickheads of NZ politics.
