Just to re-cap all the developments in the ACT Party’s fascinating new pro-race war policy and collect them all in one place:
On Friday ACT placed an ad in the New Zealand Herald written by ACT staffer and ‘Creative Director’ John Ansell. The ad warned of the dangers of Maori radicals and the National Party’s appeasement policy towards them. It ended:
Now is the time to draw a line in the sand. Only one thing can stop the Maori radicalisation of New Zealand. And that’s a strong ACT.
That evening ACT leader Don Brash sent out a press release containing these comments:
ACT New Zealand leader Don Brash says he’s proud of the content of his Party’s advertisement published in this morning’s New Zealand Herald.
The advertisement is headed “Fed up with pandering to Maori radicals?” and itemises ways in which radical extremists have succeeded in imposing a separatist agenda on a long-suffering New Zealand.
“I have been warning of this creeping separatism for some time, as part of ACT’s One Law for All campaign,” says Dr Brash . . . it’s time this insidious cancer was diagnosed for what it is – a type of apartheid – and excised.
“It’s time to tell them their game is up,” Dr Brash concludes.
(The style of the press release suggests it was written by another ACT staffer, Brash press secretary Lindsay Perigo, who describes Maori as ‘gangs of tribal savages‘ on his blog SOLOPassion.)
On Saturday John Ansell made several comments on David Farrar’s Kiwiblog. Selected examples:
There is a volcano of rage on the street about the Maorification of Everything. Meanwhile Key panders to Maori. Every other party panders to Maori . . . Does ACT want to be the courageous general rallying his men to fight a war for civilisation?
We are New Zealanders and we are not allowed to tell our truth (as Alasdair Thompson recently found out to his cost).
We are not allowed to speak out about state suffocation, Maorification, feminazism, National socialism, teacher unionism or any of the other evils that are dragging our country into the third world.
In short, [ACT’s] catchment is men and women who think like men. Not men and women who think like women. ACT is the party of the strong father, not the soft mother.
(By strong father I include strong women like Rand, Richardson and Thatcher, and by soft mother I include weak men like Key.)
ACT leader Don Brash distanced himself from these statements, but according to reporters Brash then:
attacked the National Party for “appeasing groups of Maori radicals”. He said exceptions created for Maori, like advisory boards, were a form of “apartheid”.
John Ansell then spoke to David Fisher at the Herald on Sunday:
He said Prime Minister John Key and Attorney-General Chris Finlayson were “grade-A idiots” but he admired the Maori Party for taking advantage of them. “When the white man opens the door and says come in and rape us, of course, if you’ve got any sort of business like sense you’ll go for whatever you can get.”
Ansell said Key was an “idiot” who was the “most lilly-livered Prime Minister” and a “massively incompetent economic manager”. He said the National Party no longer espoused the values it claimed – instead the Act Party had taken over.
At this point Brash indicated that Ansell was asked to leave the party, and Ansell affirmed he’d resigned on a new Kiwiblog thread in which he stated:
People like Sharples are no doubt absolutely genuine in their Maoridom . . . But for purposes of extracting money from non-Maori, he is not a full, or even probably half-Maori. The same goes for most of these latter-day Maori. They say blood quantum doesn’t matter. Well they would, wouldn’t they?
Brash will no longer comment on Ansell’s statements because it’s an ‘employment matter.’ But there’s more! Disgraced former ACT MP David Garrett (of whom just last week Brash announced he’d be delighted to have stand for Parliament again for the ACT Party), added to the Kiwiblog debate:
Make no mistake, the entire [Maori Party] – including that nice Dr Sharples all the ladies love, and Aunty Tari – want nothing less than total Maori control of Aotearoa – and if we don’t like it, we can all bugger off somewhere else.
Remember – this is a party that’s not only in Parliament but in government with the Maori Party!
