  • Hard News: These things we must now change,

    I have just stumbled upon a homegeown Facebook cesspit - run by one Vinny Eastwood - How does one get this in front of the police - he admits to watching, downloading and sharing the mosque attack video - then says he deleted it only because he wouldn't do well in prison - - he is claiming to some US podcast that it was a false flag attack, orchestrated to force gun control on NZ and beyond - the names of all his fan boys and girls and their vile comments should be noted and followed up on.
    I won't link to it - but I'm sure it's very easily discoverable for legal purposes.

    I can post some photo essays here,

    I'd be interested, (maybe on a Capture thread might be better though) Gujarat sounds like a fascinating and ancient place - I believe there are Indus Valley / Harappan civilisation sites there and you'd be interested in the boatbuilding right on the shore - but it's a big region - enjoy.

    “14.88 is a hate symbol popular with white extremists”, but no explanation why.

    As I understand 88 means HH (8th letter) which means Heil Hit...etc
    dunno about the '14'

    I always thought it telling & apt (and wondered if it was deliberate) that Fox TV news is on channel 88 in NZ...

  • Hard News: The korero we've been waiting…,

    Harking back to the original topic of this post – I note the spuriously named Taxpayers’ Union lobby group has got another of their crew into Stuff’s Opinion arena;
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/111279052/is-drug-legalisation-worse-than-the-status-quo
    sadly the only attribution to Jim Rose’s bonafides to comment is just a link to his blog and no mention of his Taxpayers’ Union links – I suspect Stuff is merely being cynically used as a doorman for directing the innocent into Rose’s paean to capitalism and the rule of law (well the ones they support) and all that comes with that…
    - is this helping I have to ask…?

    28 years isn't a particularly long time

    That's as long as it takes to grow an Australian psychopath from birth to multiple homicides...

    why Friday 15th March?

    Hmmmm... It is the Ides of March...
    Brutus force? Or blows against the Empire?
    Neither fits an Islamophobe agenda.

    As this murderer is going to represent himself I hope they keep him on topic, and not allow him to use the courtroom as a propaganda propagation platform.

    <aside> I'm stunned at how full Adelaide's court sitting schedule is judging by this article

    An Adelaide man who posted social media comments in support of the Christchurch mosque massacre has been granted bail on condition he keep off the internet.
    Chad Rolf Vinzelberg, 37, hung his head and wept as he faced Elizabeth Magistrates Court in Australia on Monday charged with one count of aggravated possessing a firearm without a licence and four counts of using or possessing a prohibited weapon.
    ....
    Magistrate Gary Gumpl released Vinzelberg on $2000 bail on the condition he does not access or post anything on the internet, and he will reappear before the court in December.

    Hardly sending a message!

    ...other entirely nonviolent options.
    Canterbury Pilgrims, for example


    First Four Ships and 'Godley-ness is next to cleanliness' aside,
    the above is my first immediate association....
    - but I'm wired funny any way...

    criticism re-Stuff comments

    I forwarded your comments and some of mine up the chain at Stuff, there are good people there, I think (hope) they’ll do the right thing ultimately.
    Heck we even agree with the 'Little Budgie Smuggler' now! (see below)

    Startling, but good, to see Mark Richardson and Tony Abbott reversing long-held ‘beliefs’ – who’d think we’d see such tectonic-scale social shifts!
    – I now half-expect fate to throw in a magnetic polarity flip somehow taking out the world’s electronic media as a sign from on high…

    <aside> It seems to me that as denialism and nihilism spread, its proponents just want to destroy any one who does have something to believe in – an insidious tear it all down zombie cancer is loose. </aside>
