NZ Republicans Burn Protection Orders

Filed under: General — blamemenforall @ 5:07 pm Mon 28th July 2008

Strong storm warnings of a strong storm scared off fair weather friends, but the protection-order burning ceremony was still a splendid affair in Hamilton on Saturday.  (Copies of) protection orders were burnt, words of great wisdom spoken and those Hamilton shoppers who braved the weather were shaken out of their complacency to be thoroughly edified and entertained.  The injustice, male enslavement and child abuse perpetrated by our Family Court and feminist laws are starting to be recognized by the man and woman in the street.


As a bonus, Queen Liz II graced us with her presence and was told, in the most obsequiously groveling way, that she was no longer needed as our head of state.  The flag of the queen’s governor-general was burned in a spirit of deep subordination.  Her royal majesty attempted to have our bowed heads severed from their bodies but she was uncrowned and defrocked before the order could be effected, revealing a stunning, sleek evening dress no doubt intended for the evening’s state banquet.  (Winston Peters had to be invited to the banquet because the Left Dishonourable Ms Clark couldn’t find any kindergartens needing formal opening in Eastern Europe to keep Winston from offending important foreign dignitaries.  Winston hoped to ask Queen Liz for $100,000 which his lawyer would then conveniently forget to tell him about.) 


The event was so much fun that the Republic of New Zealand Party will do it all again in Auckland and Tauranga soon.  Details will follow, so polish up those (copies of) protection orders and keep those match-lighting fingers fit and ready.

  4. Is this site a forum for discussing men’s issues or is it now an anti royalty forum?

    Please advise.

  5. Chris,

    The larger the mind – The more issues concern it – Mens minds are limitless – The issues which concern Men are limitless – From what I can see the Republicans are the ONLY Party brave enough to talk of Mens issues – Onward – Jim

  6. To Chris, I would have to say both, if it werent for the queen we wouldnt have this menz issues site, the royal family all live together in a palace and have everything done for them while their are people here in this country that are not allowed to see their children, have to work hard to pay child support and court fees etc

  7. Chris, No political party is likely to have much impact based on the narrow policy plank of men’s and fathers’ issues. The Republic of NZ Party was born out of people concerned about men’s issues but who realised that they needed a broad range of policies to gain attention and support. Moving on from a colonialist state system to a self-responsible republic was one of the things they decided to include. The Party also has policies concerning the constitution, democratic process, the economy and the environment. However, the men’s and fathers’ focus will always remain a priority. Unfortunately (perhaps), activities it undertakes of relevance to men’s issues are likely to be reported alongside its broader political initiatives. The extent to which MENZ will become a forum for discussing those other political initiatives will depend mainly on how much others decide to discuss them, and on the moderator’s tolerance of such threads. In fact, your post has opened the debate already! But if you are calling for a ban on reporting the Republic of NZ Party’s events relevant to men and fathers in case those reports might also describe other things that happened at such events, then I would see that as somewhat niggardly and a great shame.

  8. No, I am “calling for a ban on reporting the Republic of NZ Party’s events”, but I am saying that becoming a republic is not the answer.

    Just look at USA, probably the most father unfriendly country on the planet

  9. I happen to agree with you Chris, but MENZ isn’t the place to discuss that.

    I am happy for any political party’s supporters to post items relevant to men’s and fathering issues.

    If the Republicans are seen to be gathering any type of serious support for their policies, perhaps one of the bigger parties might realise there is a constituency of voters who’s needs are not being addressed.

  10. We have the benefit of the experience of the US and other countries in how their constitutions do or do not work in the modern era. A solid constitution should be able to prevent the feminazis from bringing about male-denigrating law changes; should be able to protect the rights of men as well as women. Some feminist initiatives have been thwarted in the US due to its constitution, inadequate as it may be. Britain probably exceeds the US in male unfriendly policies and repression of its people; for example, they had no constitution to stop their government allowing itself to monitor all emails, and they are about to introduce a law to excuse women from murdering men. The queen of England hasn’t done anything to stem the rate at which NZ is turning men into 2nd class citizens. Well nigh time for a change I’d say.

  11. What we need is a war , then all the social engineered laws will soon be forgotten, men make the world, women make babies

  12. What rot to suggest we need a war – Take a look at history at what it costs in human lives, and generations of pain, spiritually, physically and mentaly to most. – My Family + many others lost 2 uncles to war and several who lived very limited lives because of injuries

    Great stuff from Blamemenforall – Trouble is there are few Kiwis listening to each other let alone listening -/- watching whats going on outside NZ – Those learning from whats happening outside NZ are using it destroy our Families, especially our Paternal Families, rather than building alliances to strengthen our Families -/- In fact it is well known that officials from NZGovt Edifices travel constantly gaining info to strengthen their dastedly ways.

    Gate Keepering the efforts of many of our coleagues -/- peers in their efforts to change our Nation for the better is absurd especially as we go into a General Election – How will one vote well on the day if one or our moderators gate keep apinion – Should we not be open to as many options as poss at this time?

  13. nothing else is going to get us our kids and our rights back really , is it ?

  14. The only thing war does is take our good men and kills them leaving women to look after whats left of the country. And what is left? Those that the army did not see fit in draughting or enlisting.

    War is not the answer – the answer is to fight fire with fire. In a lot of ways protesting does very little but let the government know that there are a small number of people not happy with the system…. and then there are more talks. We need to speak their language. They tell us all the things we can’t talk about and hide FC proceedings like it’s some kind of conspiracy and throw you in jail for opening your mouth about it like you’re some sort of heretic threat to national security. We are meant to believe in the government and he who doth not believe shall spend eternity in hell. There was another organisation which moved to head of state around 2500 years ago that successfully abolished free thinking. That organisation is still around today, right under our noses – ironically, it’s laws are what our governing heads are pouting as our groundwork for a better sosciety…and also the greatest cause of the most frightening wars.

    I digress and I ramble but the truth remains… we need to fight within the doctorine of the english language rather than with our guns and fists. We need to make every single New Zealander know and understand the shit that’s going on behind closed doors in the Beehive. Sounds like a documentary to me.

  15. Man is “The Protector”, he builds roads, he builds houses, he builds skyscrapers, without man, civilisation would crumble…, man can only be a threat to himself at the end of the day, feeble women collect these “Protection Orders” like they are some kind of University Degree, but we know that for at least $900.00 a pop to obtain one at the tax payer’s expense care of your local legal parasite, they have become extemely popular. Burn that “PROTECTION ORDER” is the only alternative, it is in any case, a false document from it’s very nature by name.

  16. Hi Bull, you are right but forgot one thing, woman need men to get pregnant so if there are no men there are no babies, if a woman doesnt love a man enough to have them in their life then maybe should not have brought a poor innocent child into the world

    Comment by Hadi Akbari — Mon 4th August 2008 @ 11:26 am

  17. maybe.., but a woman knows she only need’s the nut sack, not the man…

    Comment by bull en a china shop — Mon 4th August 2008 @ 12:00 pm

  18. Did any of you alert all the press and media? I didn’t see/read/hear anything about this. If you did and no-one reported on it, have you asked why?
