Personal Politics, or Men’s Issue.

Filed under: General,Men's Health — Downunder @ 2:16 pm

It is no surprise that Clark wants to Tazer Trevor Mallard, but the question is why. Is it because she abides so strongly with the principle of keeping private and political separate, or that she saw that a similar such retaliation might expose something more damaging for her. What was exposed in the personal life of Don Brash may have implications for him personally and his family, even his future and his party. His alleged moral failure in a heterosexual relationship however does not pose a great threat to New Zealand Society. We can’t go killing off politicians on the basis of their lack of moral restraint unless the public is of equal or greater moral fibre.

If there is truth to the allegation that Mr. Davis is gay, then this is a completely different situation. It is not about morality it is about sexuality. The Heterosexual life style is based on reproduction and the Homosexual lifestyle is based on sexuality. If we have a sexuality based Government producing legislation which is damaging heterosexual relationships, that is a threat to the majority of New Zealanders, both socially and economically.

If it were true that Clark and Davis created a lesbian homosexual marriage of convenience, for their personal and political ambitions, that is a lie that the media is compelled to expose. It may be case that even their closest friends live the lie with them, but the public requirement here is that the media determine the facts and allow the democratic process to determine an answer.

It is becoming plainly evident to a voting public that the broadminded ideological fervor of the labour leadership is not only socially dysfunctional but has its origins in sexuality rather than reproduction. It is not only dysfunctional it is threatening.

Some would call this Gay Bashing, but it is not. Many homosexuals find complete acceptance in society. What turns acceptance to intolerance is the political ambition of sexuality. There is no need to suggest we return to the persecution of homosexuals, however one must expect that homosexuals will by the folly of a few of their political dissidents suffer the consequences.

If there are lies and deception here, the media owes us the answers, now that we have got this far.

    I fully agree with you up to here Bevin.

    If there is truth to the allegation that Mr. Davis is gay, then this is a completely different situation.

    No it’s not. It’s exactly the same as “she’s a witch” or “he’s an abuser”. People make indefensible and ultimately meaningless accusations like this when they are incapable of rational argument and lack empirical evidence to back up their position.

    I’ve told you before this is not on-topic for MENZ. For every supporter you attract with this kind of tactic I reckon you lose at least three.

    I don’t believe middle New Zealand and gives a hoot about what public people do in private, and I predict the most common reaction will be disgust at the media for using this kind of sleaze to increase their profits.

    There are plenty of reasons for not voting Labour – this isn’t one of them.
