Du Plessis-Allan:

Okay, the Paris summit, the prime minister’s plan is to crack down on social media. I’m a little bit cynical about this, don’t think it’s going to work – what are your thoughts?

Soper:

Well I’m totally cynical I must say. It’s incredible when you consider that her mate ol’ Emmanuel Macron obviously got on the blower and said to her “Look, we’re having a ‘tech for humanity’ meeting of G7 digital ministers” which are fairly low ranked ministers, Claire Curran, don’t forget, used to be ours, and France is the chair and they’re having a separate ‘tech for good’ summit on the same day, May 15th, and he would have said to Jacinda Ardern “Why don’t you come along?” This man’s not the most popular person in France at the moment, Jacinda Ardern – she’s internationally popular – who better to have at a summit talking about these sorts of matters?

Ardern talked to journos earlier today Heather, and I think she started off anyway with a fair point.

Played recording. Ardern: I don’t think anyone would argue that the terrorists on the 15 March had a right to live stream the murder of 50 people and that is what this call is very specifically focused on. What happened on the 15 March in NZ was unprecedented in the way that it used the internet. Ah, and so with that does come a responsibility, ah, to try and make change. What it isn’t, however, is a draft set of regulation or a proposal um… in that sense because actually some of it comes down to the day to day practices that we see online. Ah, again highlighting that the reason we believe we’ll get um… ah… good collaboration is because this is very specific about terrorist activity.

Soper:

Yeah but therein lies the problem in my view Heather, that pledges are just that… ah, taking a position of honour… and there’s little honourable about the internet. Ardern went on to talk about what she is now referring to as the “Christchurch Summit” in Paris. Listen carefully to this.

Played recording. Ardern: This is not about apportioning blame to any one element… ah…ah… for instance or claiming, for instance that we can resolve these issues simply by addressing ah… what’s happening on…ah… online platforms. Absolutely not. Our role of course is around social cohesion and around ah… what we are… what we are doing to promote diversity and inclusion so we can’t ah… I think, step away from that responsibility but nor can… ah… internet companies step away from theirs as well.

Soper:

Now I don’t know about you Heather, but I didn’t quite understand what that was all about.

Du Plessis-Allan:

Ah, look nor did I. (Soper laughs). Not… honestly, nor did I really. I wondered why you were playing it for a second. (Both laugh). If I can be completely honest.

Um, look, I… I asked the prime minister’s office today for… um, the pledge, right? This is the big document, the pledge, can we have a look at what the pledge is about and they said to me, look, we’ve got nothing to add beyond the prime minister’s statement that was put out. Which says to me actually, that they haven’t got the pledge… I’m reading between the lines…  the pledge isn’t ready, it’s…

Soper:

No, they haven’t, I can tell you they haven’t.

Du Plessis-Allan:

This is just kind of happened accidentally, has it?

Soper:

Well, no. The text is being worked on and don’t forget this story was broken by Macron himself. Ah, I don’t think the prime minister’s office was in any way prepared ah… for the story coming out first thing this morning. And the supreme irony in all of this Heather, is that this is the only country ah… that has carried out an international ah… act of terrorism on NZ soil and now we’re joining hands at a summit in Paris! I mean, there’s an irony in that.

It is about controlling access to information

Our PM has told us that the reason why her government wants controls on social media and the Mainstream media is because Kiwis don’t want to live in a country where it’s possible to live broadcast a massacre. The State she argues should have the power to prevent that.

There are many problems with that justification.

Kiwis don’t want to live in a country where it is possible for a terrorist massacre to occur. Their number one concern is that it was not prevented from happening in the first place.

By focussing on the video of the attack and the manifesto Jacinda Ardern is not following the rules of Triage which is the process of determining the priority of patients’ treatments based on the severity of their condition.

Videos and manifestos do not kill people. The imminent physical danger to New Zealanders is from the terrorists and their enablers. That is where the focus of the government’s efforts should be. There has been ZERO action to show Kiwis that we will be better protected in the future. What have we been told about the GCSB? Why didn’t they see the terrorist coming? What about the way in which the terrorist obtained his weapons? Who is being held accountable for the failures there?

Instead of the actual important issues being addressed Ardern is distracting the public with shiny baubles…oh look I am banning guns…oh look I will protect you from seeing disturbing things on the internet…oh look I will protect you from reading information in the Mainstream media that I think will be bad for you. quote.

The unspoken agenda is about much more than controlling terrorism on the internet. It’s about controlling access to information. The globalist elite are totalitarian by instinct and are discomfited by the fact they can no longer determine what their subjects are able to read and hear. end quote.

Archilochus

We live in a country where it has been possible to watch ISIS videos of people being brutally murdered on the internet for many, many years now. Nothing has changed. I have never watched those videos but they exist. There are thousands of such videos available online.

People are more likely to seek them out and watch them if their attention is brought to them. By singling out one video and one terror manifesto and using it to push hate speech laws and more Ardern has pointed a neon sign in the direction of the video and the manifesto and has made people who otherwise would never have thought about them go looking for them.

Ardern should be protecting Kiwis from terror attacks not footage of them.

It is virtue signalling non-action that will only be used to take away our free speech and to silence her critics.

‘Easter worshippers’

by WH on April 26, 2019 at 10:30am

Among the dead: 22 young boys and girls that were to receive their First Holy Communion on Easter Sunday. They would have been prepared for receiving this sacrament for the first time for months and would have been looking forward to this.

It was not churches and hotels that were killed, Ms May. It was not Easter worshippers that were slain, Obama and Clinton. It was tourists and Christians. These are not hard words and they are not too difficult to pronounce. They have been in the English lexicon for a few years now so most people understand their meaning.

So it is refreshing to see a Muslim condemning the gutless media over their aversion to using the C word. Perhaps we should ask Marama to reclaim it for us? Quote.

The mainstream media’s aversion to mentioning Christians when reporting on the Sri Lanka Easter Sunday massacre that killed 321 is “unacceptable” and “very troubling,” a Muslim scholar told Fox News.

Dr. Qanta Ahmed, the author of “In the Land of the Invisible Women,” told “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning it’s an “afterthought” for the media that provides “a very troubling lack of context.”

During Monday’s nightly network news coverage of the Sri Lanka Islamic terror attack, there was hardly any mention of “Christian,” “Christians,” or “Christianity.” ABC World News Tonight didn’t mention them a single time, and CBS Evening News and NBC Night News mentioned the term once. That was it.

“This was an assault on Christians, not only in Sri Lanka but all over the world,” Ahmed said.

“It was marked during the holiest day of the Holy Week, Easter, and some of the attacks went off during the thanksgiving service themselves,” Ahmed said. “There is a general reluctance to examine Christian persecution globally. In Asia, one in three Christians is subject to extreme persecution. More Christians are persecuted in more countries than any other group in the world. 144 countries now persecute Christians. A decade ago, it was 107, and now Asia is the site of tremendous Christian persecution.”

The Muslim scholar points out that extreme Muslims see Judeo-Christianity as a conspiracy against Islam, which she calls a “falsehood” because the Virgin Mary and Jesus are a part of Islam, too.

“We believe in Jesus and his message. We have to accept the gospel,” Ahmed said. “That is anathema to radical Islamists, and not talking about the persecution of Christians in this attack or in Asia, in general, is unacceptable.”

A Washington Post headline read, “Christianity under attack? Sri Lanka church bombings stoke far-right anger in the West.”

Ahmed responded: “I’m sure that’s what Islamists would like to do, but every decent person of whatever faith, is abhorring this attack. We saw the kind of innocent people who were lost in worship but understand the magnitude. This attack was six times greater than Christchurch, where my co-religionists – Muslims – were killed. Fifty nine [sic] Muslims were killed in New Zealand. This is 310 people passed away, possibly more coming, yet the magnitude of that assault is not reflected in the global media and saying so does not stoke any anger, that is an admission of honesty.” […] E

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.

Lincoln-based woman Aroha, 38, highlighted comments from a man doing a building inspection on a property she was considering buying

“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.

The posters are being displayed around the city as part of an anti-racism campaign.

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.

Our part-time PM

by SB on April 23, 2019 at 9:30am

One of these leaders is a high achiever who is a workaholic, the other is Jacinda Ardern.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is paid handsomely by the taxpayer to essentially work part-time. The left used to mock John Key for his holidays, but they never seem to mock Ardern for all her time off.

Not only is our ‘part-time’ PM paid handsomely; she is the seventh highest-paid leader in the world! In first place earning NZ$2,407,255 is Lee Hsien Loong, the Prime Minister of Singapore. Hard working and high achieving Donald Trump is in fourth place earning NZ$598,000 a year. He is followed by the Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison, and Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany.

Jacinda Ardern earns NZ$471,049 per year, which makes her the fifth highest-paid leader in all the OECD countries. Talk about a gender pay gap! She does less and achieves less but gets paid more. quote.

[…] In 2017, Statistics New Zealand reported New Zealanders were earning an average of $50,000 in salaries and wages, meaning the Prime Minister earns nearly 10 times as much as the average Kiwi.

Newshub

Imagine a job where you get to waste time doing magazine shoots and visiting schools and resthomes for photo opportunities rather than concentrating on running the country and going to important political meetings.

Imagine a job where you hand over all the policy-making to working groups at a cost of millions of dollars because you and your party didn’t manage to come up with any policies while you spent 9 years in opposition.

Imagine leaving your deputy leader to all the real work in your absence while you swan around getting all the glory and having play dates with your favourite singers.

Now imagine pulling in $471,049 a year. Nice work if you can get it huh.

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.

Read the NZ Bill of rights section 14 before Andrew Little destroys it

by SB on April 16, 2019 at 11:30am

Andrew Little

If you don’t know what we have protecting our freedom of speech you won’t know when it has been taken away. Andrew Little is on a mission to bring in hate speech legislation which will be in direct contravention of the New Zealand bill of rights.

It is important that New Zealanders know what their rights are so that they can counter Andrew Little’s attempts to take them away or to punish them for their opinions. quote.

A pamphlet that references Don Brash has been labelled racist by Justice Minister Andrew Little, who wants the current review of hate speech laws to examine whether better avenues of complaint are needed. end quote.

A newspaper

Here are two of the most important extracts from the Bill that most New Zealanders probably do not even know about. quote.

Freedom of thought, conscience, and religion

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience, religion, and belief, including the right to adopt and to hold opinions without interference.

Freedom of expression

Everyone has the right to freedom of expression, including the freedom to seek, receive, and impart information and opinions of any kind in any form. end quote.

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.
