This just shows the Racism against White people in this country . When Hone Harawira said he wouldn’t let his kids go with a white person, there were no problems with that. But when a white person says it, then it’s racist ???

The Love Aotearoa, Hate Racism rally took place at Aotea Square in Auckland on March 24 in response to the Christchurch shootings.

Racial slurs from a man who “wouldn’t let his kids go out with a Māori” are just one example of the suffering women of colour in Christchurch experience, a new poster series shows.

Against Racism Ōtautahi (ARO) took to city streets with hundreds of posters depicting hands over a large red heart to encourage inclusion after a gunman killed 50 people at two mosques on March 15. To keep the ball rolling, it launched a new series sharing local stories of heartache and inequality in the city.

Stories from the victims – identified in the campaign using pseudonyms to protect their privacy – included being yelled at and abused by “skinheads”, being shooed out of stores and accused of theft, and having their lunch crumpled.

“He kinda started hitting on me and asked me where I was from. When I told him I was from New Zealand and was part Māori, he was disappointed, saying he thought I was Tahitian and that he wouldn’t let any if his kids go out with a Māori.”

Her story was illustrated with a graphic from American-based artist Marian DeSouza-McAllister, who is originally from New Zealand. She sketched the works from her studio in Brooklyn to be displayed around Christchurch to create more awareness of the rampant casual racism in the city, she said.

Others shared similar tales in the 10-part series.

“Once, my brothers and I were playing at Sydenham park, some guys with shaved heads started coming over towards us and saying some racist stuff. They kicked our stuff around and stood all over the sandwiches my mum had made for us. I’d never seen my brothers scared like that. We didn’t play there after that,” 22-year-old Alofa said.

Another woman, Xin, 30, said she was told her name was “not acceptable” when she started a new job.

“My co-worker asked my name so I responded. He seems very confused by it. He reiterated his questions, like I hadn’t heard him. This time he added loudly ‘No, what is your Christian name?’ I’m not religious but why was I not acceptable with my name?”

An ARO spokeswoman said the posters were created to critique the “this is not us” message that emerged after the March terror attack and “challenge people’s ideas of racism in their own backyard”. That message rebuffed racism and hate, which “denied the everyday experiences of people of colour”, she said.

“The hope was to encourage local residents to see themselves in the scenarios … we felt that if white people are able to form a personal connection with the experience of racist violence they will be more likely to respond empathetically.

“Unfortunately there was no shortage of material to work with.”

DeSouza-McAllister said she wanted to show how strong, fashionable and relevant the victims were. So far, the response from women of colour who found it relatable had been “amazing”, she said.

Dangerous Android malware comes to the iPhone

Status

An insidious variety of Android spyware has finally made its way to the iPhone.

Early last year, mobile security firm Lookout discovered Android and iOS malware that can steal “contacts, audio recordings, photos, location, and more from devices,” according to a blog post from the company.

The malware was originally found on the Italian-language Google Play Store for Android and disguised as “service applications” from mobile operators, according to Security Without Borders which also documented the malware.

Versions of the Android malware, dubbed Exodus, were unwittingly installed dozens of times, “with one case reaching over 350,” Security Without Borders said.

A Google spokesperson told Fox News that it “removed the apps from Google Play earlier this year” and warned the users who had installed the malware. “We invest heavily in keeping users safe from bad apps, malicious developers, and new abuse trends,” the spokesperson added.

Now on the iPhone

Lookout’s research on the Android version of the malware led to the discovery of it on iOS.

Unlike the Android version, the malware isn’t distributed through the App Store but via the Apple Developer Enterprise program, which allows organizations to distribute proprietary, in-house apps to their employees and bypass the App Store, Lookout said.

However, some malicious groups have exploited this, Domingo Guerra, Senior Director, Modern OS Security, Symantec, told Fox News. These groups “misused the enterprise app certificate ‘loop-hole’ to circumvent the App Store review process and get their apps ‘sideloaded’ onto target devices,” he said.

This is a new twist and potentially a sign of things to come. “The fact that it uses this ‘backdoor’ of the Apple Enterprise Developer Program is fairly novel and likely a new avenue other actors might try to take when targeting iOS users,” Adam Kujawa, Director of Malwarebytes Labs, told Fox News.

Since the App Store is secure, malware purveyors were forced to take an alternative route, Kujawa said. “Apple has a more locked down app store, trying to slip it into the legitimate application repository is pretty much impossible.”

Instead, attackers are setting up phishing sites, pretending to be mobile carriers, Kujawa added. “From these pages, there are links to install what the user believes to be useful applications from their mobile carrier…[but] these links will navigate the user to download the app on their iOS device.”

“They are able to do this by having a legitimate enterprise certificate assigned to this app, notably from the company Connexxa S.R.L.,” Kujawa continued.

The iOS version is more limited than the Android variant but still can scrape personal data and listen in to an iPhone’s microphone, Kujawa said. But once Apple was made aware of this, they blacklisted the certificate used by the app.

Sri Lanka bombings: Two Australians among the dead, including 10-year-old girl

Marnie Banger22:03, Apr 22 2019

Two Australians including a 10-year-old girl have been killed in the Sri Lanka bomb blasts and another two have been injured.

Australia’s prime minister Scott Morrison has confirmed the deaths, as the number of people believed to be killed in the attacks has risen to at least 290.

“Right now, Sri Lanka is grieving, Australia is grieving,” Morrison told reporters in Melbourne.

“Two Australians have lost their lives in this terrible massacre and my heart is full of grief for them and their families.”

While Morrison did not go into details about the Australians killed, SBSreported on Monday the dead were an Australian mother and her 10-year-old daughter who were attending a church service in Negombo.

SBS said the mother, Manik Suriaaratchi, and her daughter Alexendria had returned to Sri Lanka several years ago to look after a family member, according to a friend of the family.

Morrison confirmed another two Australians – both of whom were dual citizens – have been injured but are in a stable condition. One has been treated for shrapnel wounds and the other a broken leg, with both receiving consular support.

Morrison said it was too early to say whether more Australians could be among those who have been hurt.

“As the days pass, and the injured are treated, and some of them succumb to their wounds as well, we are seeing this massacre going from what was bad, very bad, to much, much worse,” he said.

Labor leader Bill Shorten described the attacks as devastating. ”At a time like this, politics is not as important. At a time like this, we are all Australians,” he told reporters in Townsville.

“Easter Sunday’s senseless and barbaric murder of hundreds of citizens, including two Australians and 500 injured, is something we should all mourn and we do.”

More than 500 people have been injured in the bomb blasts that ripped through three churches, three luxury hotels and a guesthouse on Easter Sunday.

The US said “several” Americans were among the dead, while Britain, India, China, Japan and Portugal said they, too, lost citizens.

The Australian High Commission in Sri Lanka has been working to determine the whereabouts of Australians and monitor the situation. Australia’s travel advice for Sri Lanka has been upgraded to “reconsider your need to travel” in the aftermath of the attack.

New Zealand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade said New Zealanders in Sri Lanka should be vigilant in public areas and follow any advice issued by local authorities.

New Zealanders in Sri Lanka in need of consular assistance should contact the New Zealand High Commission in New Delhi, on  +91 11 468 83170.

Racist rant from the leader of the Mana movement

by SB on April 15, 2019 at 9:30am

Photoshopped image credit: Boondecker

When I read the leader of the Mana party’s racist rant about “White boys” it reminded me of a hilarious line from a comedy.

There are only two things that I can’t stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people’s cultures… and the Dutch.

Hone Harawira, who famously once said he wouldn’t want his daughter to date a Pakeha, and who has called people “White motherfuckers”, apparently cannot tolerate racism. It really upsets him that some reporters dared to report that a couple of gang leaders publicly declared that they will not be handing back their illegal firearms.

According to anti-racism Hone, reporting this fact is racist as it is picking on “black” criminals when everyone knows it is the White fullas who cause all the trouble.

quote.

[…] How many guns are there in NZ? Answer: An estimated 1.5 million.
Who’s got most of them – the WHITE BOYS (white farmers, white gun shop owners, white gun club members, white gun importers and white nationalists) – or the BLACK BOYS (Māori & Pacific gangs)? Answer: The white boys have about a million; the black boys have about 20,000. end quote.

I wasn’t aware that there were any statistics on gun ownership based on the colour of a person’s skin. In fact, the biggest problem police have is that they have no idea which firearms each registered firearm owner actually has in their possession unless they had a special category licence such as E cat.

If the police don’t know those details then how on earth would they know how many firearms are held by gang members? Where did anti-racism Hone get hold of his figures?

Even if he was correct and gang members have fewer firearms than non- gang members how does that make their flouting of the law any more acceptable? Does Hone want apartheid in New Zealand where the law is not applied equally?

quote.

[…] What did the media and the politicians say about the BLACK BOYS before the CHC massacre? There was daily mention of terrorism in the media, and it was always about jihadis and blacks. end quote.

Is he serious? When our media report on terrorism daily it is because it is happening daily. They certainly do not mention “Blacks”, as our media are politically correct and avoid mentioning skin colour and race at all unless the terrorist is white.

The media mention Jihadis, as most terrorism worldwide is carried out by them. A person of any race can become a Jihadi: it is not like the Ku Klux Klan where only one skin colour is allowed. quote.

[…] In a country bristling with white racists, white power gangs, white police structures, white justice frameworks, white penal systems, white nationalists and white supremacists, a white guy kills 50 Muslims … and blacks get hammered for refusing to hand in their guns.
Taika was right – NZ is a fuckin’ racist society

The Daily Blog

 

Hone really is a special kind of stupid. No one has hammered “Blacks” for not handing in their firearms. Criminal gangs have been criticised for refusing to hand them in.CRIMINALS. Criminals are not a race but perhaps in anti-racism Hone’s eyes “Blacks” and gangs are the same thing.

Who is the real racist here?

1News fails to moderate ‘hate speech’

by SB on April 19, 2019 at 9:15am

Screenshot 1.

While vigilante groups are monitoring Whaleoil posts for anything that they could possibly use to deplatform us, mainstream media like 1News are allowing speech that they would call “hate speech” if it was on our platform to be published on their facebook pages.

On 1News facebook page last night was an article about the burning of Notre Dame in Paris. It is headed “Notre Dame’s age, soaring open spaces…” In the comments, there were repeated posts from a man living in Baghdad (!) whose hate speech included such gems as “I’m happy and all muslims are happy for that”, and “our true enemy is Christ” and “we must be happy when our enemies are harmed”.
Wrote to 1News to ask them if they were happy with that vileness. No reply of course and the hate speech is still there.
If 1News is happy to leave that there, then we have an acid test of what is acceptable and what is not.

Calling us all racists is not the path to racial harmony

by Christie on April 18, 2019 at 9:00am

Dame Susan Devoy

Most of us breathed a sigh of relief when Susan Devoy declined to renew her contract as the head of the Human Rights Commission. She had done a terrible job, and to cap it all off, the Commission was under scrutiny for having an awful culture itself, even though it is supposed to be the main body upholding ALL human rights. Clearly, Ms Devoy must take some responsibility for that, and it is hard not to believe that this was a major factor in her decision not to seek reappointment.

She may be gone, but sadly she is not silenced. Far from it. In the aftermath of the Christchurch massacre, she wrote for The Spinoff, agreeing with similar fools such as Anne Salmond, that we are all racists and have blood on our hands. quote.

But addressing those who over-reacted to her Christmas comments, Devoy wrote: “Do not write an op-ed today crying about how shocking [the Christchurch] murders were. Because you helped make it happen. You helped normalise hatred in our country. You helped those murderers feel that they were representing the thoughts of ordinary New Zealanders.” end quote.

Like many others, she forgets a few inconvenient facts. Brenton Tarrant was not a New Zealander. He chose New Zealand partly because it is a peaceful, tolerant sort of place and also because security tends to be very lax here. How exactly ordinary New Zealanders going about their daily business ‘helped make it happen’, is a mystery.

Devoy was apparently upset that people accused her of waging a ‘war on Christmas’, which she clearly did. As Human Rights Commissioner, she seemed to completely forget that the largest ethnic group in New Zealand has rights too. Especially the right to be able to celebrate their festivities as they see fit, just as minority communities do. After all, we celebrate Chinese New Year and Diwali here quite happily, but the then Human Rights Commissioner wanted to discourage people from celebrating Christmas because it was offensive to racial minorities. No wonder she faced a backlash, but as her emotional rant at The Spinoff shows, she still harbours a grudge about it.

According to her, this is another reason why Brenton Tarrant went on his murderous rampage. This woman is clearly deranged. quote.

But while she was not speaking for the state, Devoy’s comments were quite something from somebody who had occupied such an important position.

And this is why civil libertarians ought to be concerned at calls for more censorship in the wake of the Christchurch murders. Because while those in favour of more state control of opinions protest that they are only talking about extremist views, the polarised political times have produced a tendency to soften the definition of extremism.

Banning fascism is a more troubling proposition if you have a proclivity to declare almost everyone with whom you disagree of being a fascist.

And this gets to the problem with censorship. Those in favour of more Government regulation of opinions invariably point out that they wish to restrict the most odious forms of speech which, in theory, should be reassuring.
Yet we live in an era when all the loudest people spend quite a bit of time accusing each other of being Nazis all day.

Stuff. end quote.

People like Susan Devoy really need to be ignored. She never accepted that people had the right to express their opinions on her stance about Christmas. Ordinary New Zealanders are less likely to adopt an inclusive stance if they see their way of life being threatened, and the former Human Rights Commissioner should understand that encouraging inclusiveness, rather than lecturing people about how bad they are, is the path to racial harmony. Yes, she may have seen cases of racism in her role, but she was blind to the racism that she herself was guilty of.

Most of us encounter people of other races on a daily basis, and we don’t care at all. I like to think I judge people by who they are, not by how they look. There are good and bad people in all races and, if anything, the Christchurch massacre opened up the world of Muslim New Zealanders to us in a way not seen before. I was impressed by what I saw. And yet, I have lost count of the number of times I have effectively been called a white supremacist. People like Susan Devoy beat a path of righteousness, unaware of the enormous damage they are doing. It is time for this nonsense to stop.

A good read

I wrote this story in The Australian newspaper regarding Rugby Australia’s plan to sack Israel Folau:

The so-called Israel Folau affair, if we dismantle the humbug, can be summed up quite simply.

If the young man is not free to state his religious views, let alone Christian views, then we are all in trouble.

It would be helpful if people analysed what he said before condemning him to rugby oblivion.

He issued a warning to “drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolaters, hell awaits you, repent, only Jesus saves”.

“Jesus Christ loves you and has given you time to turn away from your sin and come to him.”

For this he faces, it appears, the termination of his playing career.

Of course, the fools who run Australian Rugby, and I use the word advisedly, because on so many other fronts, they have proven their foolishness — are preaching breach of contract while at the same time demonstrably being in breach of their own procedures.

Before proclaiming Folau’s guilt, one would have thought he is entitled to the deliberation of a tribunal. And perhaps, just perhaps, Israel might be given a chance to defend himself.

No, none of that. We have read that his contract is to be ripped up and he will never play again.

And in an edict reminiscent of a Romanian or Soviet dictator, he has been banned from joining his teammates in training and is not welcome at team functions.

As former federal MP Wilson Tuckey wrote at the weekend, “In the days of the Roman Empire, to stand up in public to espouse your Christianity was most likely to result in a trip to the Colosseum for a brief meeting with a couple of hungry lions for the entertainment of the masses. The Israel Folau case indicates that little has changed in today’s ‘progressive empire’.’’

Those arguing for the prosecution of the young man preach about terms of his contract and the “values of the game”. If the “values” of the game involve censorship or, what’s worse, termination for articulating Christian values that are as old as Christianity itself, then it is Rugby Australia that needs to change not Folau.

Of course, Rugby Australia wants to parade as guardians of morality yet this has got nothing to do with morality and everything to do with money.

Qantas presumably has threatened to pull its sponsorship. It has played this game before. The Qantas CEO Alan Joyce has tried this on in the past.

He is entitled to his view even though, apparently, Israel is not. But surely he cannot appropriate his view to the whole Qantas family. Alan Joyce apparently does not agree with Israel, but there are thousands in the Qantas family who do not agree with Alan Joyce.

Israel Folau is from a devoutly religious Polynesian family. He has not sought to impose his views on anybody. He has merely repeated, as one correspondent wrote at the weekend, “what his religion has held for thousands of years. Whether you choose to believe it is up to you. And if you don’t, then probably you don’t believe in hell either. I suspect that had Folau been a Muslim stating exactly the same religious beliefs that, in the unlikely event he was dismissed, it would have led to calls of Islamophobia”.

We have come to the turning point in a long road.

This has been going on for too long and the whingers, the whiners and the self-appointed victims have tried to shut people up on a variety of fronts.

They have not succeeded in shutting up Israel Folau so the demand is for punishment, banishment and termination.

It’s interesting that the drunks and the liars and the thieves and the fornicators and the atheists are not complaining. Those who are, are the ones who expect tolerance towards themselves and their views but won’t extend that tolerance to others.

And let’s face it. People who differ in their views from Israel Folau, and there are many, have the same opportunity as he has to put their views on social media; and are free to criticise him. But they don’t want that. ­Minorities know that in today’s world you can shut anyone up if you complain and whinge loudly enough.

Here is a young man, a dedicated Christian expressing a legitimate view based on biblical teaching and he has been made a pariah.

Put simply, Christians around the world are under siege. It appears that sanctions of the most draconian kind are now being imposed on Christians here who dare to proclaim their faith.

It is interesting to note that ­Israel’s post was “liked” by several of his teammates.

Consistency has never been the long suit of the discredited ­administrators of Australian rugby. But if they are to be consistent here, they surely must sack his teammates.

But there are a lot of Pacific ­island players around the world, also deeply religious, who support Israel Folau.

Is not Qantas in partnership with a national airline whose government imposes laws infinitely more damaging to homosexuals than Israel’s utterance of his biblical beliefs?

But without the Qantas money, I hear it argued, rugby goes broke and Israel has destroyed the game.

This is fanciful nonsense.

Rugby Australia has proven unable to adequately manage the game and its finances to such an extent that it now has to go cap in hand to Qantas and, shamefully, do its bidding.

What is the old saying? We’ll jump, just tell us how high.

Interestingly, the federal government recently appointed an eminent former High Court judge, Robert French, to investigate the denial of free speech in universities.

Among other things, French argued that the perception of a free speech crisis is enough to create a chilling effect on the flow of ideas.

In a 300-page report, the former High Court chief justice recommends that universities adopt a model code that states that staff and students have a right to enjoy freedom of speech.

Rugby Australia should adopt a similar model code and be done with the hypocrites who demand tolerance and approval which they won’t extend to others.

Not for the first time, Israel Folau has shown a rare degree of moral courage.

It is in this, even beyond his rugby skills, that the example lies for young people who have been his supporters. Rugby has joined a battle in the minds of the vast ­majority of the rugby public that it cannot win.

Face of the day

by Whaleoil staff on April 17, 2019 at 6:30am

[…] Tamaki [said] it was his “God-given responsibility” to preach the word of the holy spirit, declaring he is here to protect Kiwis’ freedom of speech.

“The war that will rage is a confrontation of beliefs. I am confident I speak for many New Zealanders, who don’t have a voice or public profile but still believe in the Bible as the Word of God, and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and morality, and we will not accept it being censored in any way,”

[…] “The war we will fight, although non-violent, will be resolute in its stand. We will strongly declare what we believe through protest, submissions or whatever means we can or at our disposal to protect our right as New Zealanders’ to freedom of speech.”
[…] Tamaki says the lack of consultation is an insult to New Zealanders and he will let the Government push through legislation without a fight.
“We will not go along with, or lay down while this Government push through quick legislation or law that has not had the appropriate participation, consultation and involvement of those who will be affected by that legislation or law,”

[…] “This is short-sight, and often regrettable law.
“I for one will not be bound in my pulpit. I have the right, and indeed the God-given responsibility to preach the Word of God in my Church any given Sunday.
“I abore the way my preaching has been taken out of context and used against me by opportunists for the purposes of creating news, [for example] my message spoken in 2011 the Sunday morning before the Christchurch earthquake.
What do you say about inciting hate towards me and the Word of God through the twisted reporting of that message? How is it that media and other minority groups now have more freedom to use whatever platform at their disposal to incite hatred towards the founding faith of this nation.”

The White Nationalist who wasn’t

by SB on April 14, 2019 at 9:30am

The MSM recently got very excited this week as they went on a witch hunt to find a juicy target. He seemed to fit all their talking points. There was talk of him wearing Pro-Trump clothing and of being a White Nationalist. They were wetting their pants with excitement. We were told that he had made a public nuisance of himself, being horrible to people outside a mosque and that the police were now looking for him.

Keeping the spin alive that White supremacy is a growing movement in New Zealand and that there are White Nationalists under every rock is what the MSM are depending on right now to sell papers. They can only milk the Christchurch tragedy for so long and they need new evidence of hate and division in our society in order to advance the narrative of hatred and division.

Finally they found the guy and then the stories abruptly stopped.

Disappointingly his surname really didn’t suit the White Nationalist theme story – it wasTuapawa. He wasn’t a member of any Nationalist groups. Instead, he was a man who had stopped taking his anti-anxiety medication and who was on drugs and alcohol at the time of the incident. Far from being a card-carrying White supremacist, he was extremely apologetic and embarrassed by his behaviour.

The reporters must have been deeply disappointed. quote.

A man wearing a Trump shirt who abused people outside a mosque targeted in the Christchurch terror attack wants to say sorry to the victims of his insulting behaviour.
Daniel Nicholas Tuapawa, 33, a labourer, says he cannot remember his actions, has nothing against Muslim people, and was shocked and distressed when police showed him the video taken by a witness. 

[…] He pleaded guilty to “being in a public place when he behaved in an insulting manner that was likely in the circumstances to cause violence against persons to start”.

[…] About 4.30pm on Wednesday, Tuapawa, wearing a black shirt with the words “Trump for New Zealand” on the back, yelled abuse at members of the Muslim community gathered at Masjid Al Noor on Deans Ave, where more than 40 people were shot dead in the March 15 terror attack.
He yelled: “I am sick of these f…wits, they need to f… off,” and “All Muslims are terrorists, they should get the f… out of here”, and “I’m over these Muslims and they need to leave”.
Two armed police officers were present at the mosque, but did not arrest him. He walked off through Hagley Park. Six officers worked all day Thursday to try find the man, arresting him that night.

[…] Defence counsel Steven Hembrow said Tuapawa was deeply ashamed and could not explain his behaviour.
He said he had gone walking through the park, stopped to look at flowers and could not remember what happened next.
[…] Hembrow said Tuapawa had a history of alcohol and drug abuse, and had stopped his medication for anxiety for some time before this incident.
Tuapawa said outside court that he had blackouts and needed to get his mental health “sorted”.

[…] He said he was “so sorry” about what he said and had not realised he said what he did. “I’m very sorry and I would shake their hand. I’m sorry, I am.”
