New Zealand Hates Free Speech Too By Michael Ferguson

     We do not get a lot of new New Zealand news items to report about here, but those that do come across our desk (computer screen) are usually bad, sad, or mad. Take this little drop of anarcho-tyrannical oppression:

“Right-wing activist Lauren Southern has fallen victim to yet another last-minute venue cancellation, after the owner of a New Zealand building recieved complaints about Southern and co-speaker Stefan Molyneux’s platform. The self-described “alt-media” pair was swinging by Auckland on the final stop in their antipodean tour, fresh off the back of visiting Australia, where Southern begged God not to “nuke Melbourne” for it's supposed Biblical sins. Dogged by controversy, it appears that strife followed them across the Tasman with their only New Zealand venue canceling at the last minute. Due to a raft of complaints, owner of Auckland’s Powerstation venue Gabrielle Mullins canceled the event, citing a disagreement with the speakers’ message. “As soon as we found out [what their message was], we weren’t comfortable at all because it goes against quite a lot of things that we say,” the owner told the NZ Herald. “They can say whatever they want but personally I don’t want it in my venue.” Southern took to Twitter, lampooning yet another cancelation by quoting the Lord of the Rings, a film New Zealand is famous for. “One does not simply walk into a venue in New Zealand,” she wrote to her 387,000 followers.

It turns out that you cannot give a speech about free speech in New Zealand. More details to follow.


Molyneux also tweeted to express his disappointment.

Southern’s agent, Caolan Robertson – who also manages now-bailed darling of the UK’s right-wing community Tommy Robinson – told Newshub that the manager of the venue was well aware of the nature of the event he agreed to host. He added the speakers were unable to secure another venue in time. Axiomatic Events confirmed on their website that “due to circumstances beyond our control tonight’s event in Auckland has been cancelled” and that “all ticket holders will be refunded within 14 days.” The Facebook page of Powerhouse has apparently experienced a surge of reviews since it was annouced it had agreed to provide the stage for the duo. The confirmation email sent to ticket buyers to rate it high for the courage and because “the intolerant Leftists will be rating them low for no other reason than they had the audacity to host a conservative event.” Both the initial decision and the cancelation got their shares of supporters and detractors. Earlier the NZ leg of the tour saw the duo banned from local council venues, with Auckland Mayor Phil Goff saying he did not want people stirring up ethnic tensions. They have also been met with protests and significant media attention, as they did in Australia in the days prior. Around 100 people, including Kiwi MP Marama Davidson, the co-leader of the Green Party of Aotearoa, protested the arrival of Southern and Molyneux on the scheduled day of their event.

Right wing commentator and provocateur @Lauren_Southern has taken her show to the streets of Lakemba where she had a run-in with police outside a mosque. @ebatten7 #Lakemba #7News

Last week, the Canadian caused a controversy by stating she had heard of race riots in the Sydney suburb of Lakemba – clearly confusing the town with Cronulla, located over 20km away. She also said on camera the predominantly Muslim western Sydney suburb had no British culture left, and immediately had journalist point out an Irish bar across the road. She was also moved along by police as she tried to harass Muslims at the Lakemba mosque.


Lauren Southern went to some place called Lakemba in Australia that she declared to be a "sharia ruled no-go zone" and "conquered land". Here is her being interviewed inside the dangerous no-go zone

Southern is banned for life from the United Kingdom. In the 23-year-old’s own words, she was banned by the Home Office “because she was caught distributing racist leaflets.”


     We saw this control of free speech with the One Nation movement in the late 1990s, and today, the antifa have this form of social control down to a fine art, where they threaten to protest, and police either close down the meeting or bill those wanting free speech for their services.  Together, the Deep State system, and the antifa, have a cosy relationship going. And, all of this will continue, and get worse until Fred and Rita out there in the green leafy suburbs, take a stand. Not today, we have a barbie, but maybe tomorrow.
