Selling Out
The Maori Party is really in the gun. What they've done to their own culture, selling out to a radical form of feminism that most Pakeha won't even endorse, letting two other political parties direct their own party's steps over the clear wishes of 80% or more of their own people is really quite reprehensible, even more reprehensible than the goose-stepping-on-your-face distain Labour shows for its constituents.
Bradford's Bill to criminalise the act of parental correction of children will re-define the entire parent-child and child-family relationships. Cutting the child out of the context of its own whanau, separating it from its parents and bestowing upon the child a set of "rights" determined by the political state without consulting the parents, whanau or cultural norms is a completely foreign way to treat tamariki.
"The best interests of the child" is the mantra of these Internationalists who fawn at the hand of the United Nations...and that means a child considered on its own, without reference to parents, whanau or cultural links. The child is not just seen as an autonomous individual, but one with individual rights. Who bestows these rights? The state. Who will protect these rights? The state and its agents (social workers, police, teachers and increasingly the staff of Plunket, Barnardos, doctors' offices, etc.). And from whom does the child need protection that its rights should not be infringed? Parents. Parents are the prime suspects at all times in the eyes of nanny state and its agents.
Be afraid, parents, of Bradford's Bill to criminalise you. Be very afraid. Be outraged, Maori people, for you have been sold over to bondage.
