The hot topic of the long weekend is the New Zealander of the Year Award going to microbiologist, Siouxsie Wiles.

It was a celebrity/political, commercialised and ideology driven nomination, so while the Otago Daily Times is running to accusations of bullying in the face of criticism, I thought I might point out …

You can’t make a controversial award and then expect any great degree of bipartisanship acceptance of that.

And it is controversial in every aspect I’ve mentioned. You only need to look at the 12 months of photographic posturing, the politically loaded style of the Kiwibank Board who oversee the process, and the political obedience to conflicting information from Wiles herself in the face of the ‘covid crisis’.

Was this a politically astute award?

No of course it wasn’t. It was ideologically motivated and divisive and we will see where the dust falls at the end of the scrap. It was not an award that engendered the nature of our collective culture by any means.

I’m not going to delve into who might have been a better recipient of this year’s New Zealander of the Year Award, other than to say I’m quite sure there were plenty of deserving candidates.

Rather, I would point to the destructive place feminism has brought our culture to.

You may remember former NZ First MP Tracey Martin (who also oddly enough received her own unusual political appointment that I have strong reservations about) … saying in the 2017 election that women don’t attack women.

It is strongly engrained in feminist culture that only female politicians selectively attack females who disagree with their culture while supporting any woman who randomly attacks a man at whim.

That’s a predecessor to what we currently call the Cancel-Culture but it’s been alive and well since Clark came to power in 1999 and the unceremonious public dustup that happened between her and the former head of the old social welfare, Chrstine Rankin.

That shut down the voices of conservative women and I’m not surprised, I’m well aware of the extent of the righteousness indignation of this political culture and the ends some individuals will go to in destroying any opposition.

Quietly in the background I’m getting a sense that some women are equally aggrieved by this appointment and we are yet to see what they might have to say publically about that.

And we should be asking discerning intelligent women how long they will remain silent, it’s been about two decades now and while I not recommending a hunt for a white hero I will be interested to see who has what to say.

If you should happen to spot any sensible female commentary or if you should have your own bright perspective please record that in the comments.

    That pink-purple hair always had a look of toxicity but you’d have to be hallucinating to have seen any glitter there.

    Hahahahaha !!!

    > not recommending a hunt for a white hero

    That phrasing is unfortunate, it will be read by many as referring to a _white_ hero(ine).

  4. Downunder says:

    @3 perhaps I should have said White Lady … but that reminds me too much of the old takeaway caravans that used to be in Fort St, and Newmarket during the night. Not sure if they are still there.

    I totally agreee with the write of the piece. Kiwi Bank have ive rthe last few years become politically correct and appointed totally inappropriate people to New Zealander of the year. Last year they voted for a child murderer this year they voted for some9ne who has made it her business to keep us illinformed. Well done Kiwi Bank y9u uave once again made an ass of y9ur selves.

    It is precisely because of spiteful conspiracy fantasy driven nonsense like this that I stopped contributing to MENZ.

    What used to be an amazing forum for those who care about Kiwi men has become a dumping found for nutters.

    Siouxsie is an amazing woman who thoroughly deserved to win. Get over it.

    We’ve seen the politics of climate change for 40 years and how politics and money have come out ahead of the ethics and integrity of science.
    With advancing technology science communication has been a growing media field that’s been encouraged even more by Covid.
    It’s a very current topic globaly and there’s every reason to discuss that – there are varying opinions outside of NZ that conflict with the controlled position provided by Dr Wiles.
    Being a political appointment it is appropriate to discuss every aspect of that particularly when we are creating an extension to the podium of truth while we also have a considerable pushback from DHB staff working in the field who don’t want a bar of the Covid disorder let alone a jab.
    Not being able to have these discussions because only nutters disagree with a political position is a sad state of mind.

    I have no problem with her reward.
    Although I have read biased against men’s health comments from her.
    But only a woman could win.
    That’s nuts obviously.

    Guess you ignored that.

    Your solution was to call everyone nutters.
    Slightly insulting.
    But you didn’t say anything.
    About the bigotry of the award.
    Maybe you can’t see bigotry, in plain site.
    What NZer of the year award.
    They didn’t have a man of the year award
    Must be nuts to support bigotry.
    Woman of the year.
    Not NZer of the year.

    Maybe try conversation, Wayne.

    Ardern is taking full feminist advantage of her majority position which obviously some people can’t see. How she managed to convince the RSA to turn ANZAC into a celebration for women today is a curiosity but expect some kickback from that.

    Damn.
    I could share a few secrets.
    Thousands of men would volunteer.
    For science.

    Anybody get the point.
    Poem didn’t rhyme either.

    Downunder, you mentioned the ‘covid crisis’. The crisis has a new twist, as least 45,000 people have died within 3 days of getting the covid jab. This has been hidden because of the reporting system. Many more have serious injuries from the experimental treatment which is not a vaccine by any definition.

  12. DJ Ward says:

    #11 James

    I don’t know where you got that information from.
    But we can analyse your statement.
    3.8 billion vaccinated.
    1.05 billion with 2 doses.

    So nearly 5 billion shots of the ‘vaccine’.
    Your number is close to 50,000, deaths.
    So about 1 in 100,000 will die within 3 days.
    If a normal life is 33,333 days, 3 die every day, on average.
    From those 100,000, normally.
    Based on your figures then.
    You are less likely to die in those 3 days.
    Than normally, if you take the ‘vaccine’.

    The vaccines risks, should be well understood, by now.
    Those risks seem to be very low, from all accounts.
    The risks from the virus, and becoming a victim.
    Are in the millions of dead.
    And many more millions, harmed.

    Those that get sick, if they could turn back time.
    Would beg for the vaccine.
    Even those with ill informed ideas, would beg.

  13. James says:

    DJ – the 45,000 relates to America only. You can easily find this information. It won’t be in the mainstream news just yet but legal cases are under way. The fact is, you are more likely to die from the treatment than from from Covid, or to have injuries such as blood clots. Also, it is not a vaccine by any definition

  14. DJ Ward says:

    It still doesn’t negate a certainty.
    People are dying in large numbers.
    From a rapidly changing virus.

    Things can easily get out of control.
    With a highly contagious.
    Mutating and deadly virus.

    If it’s not a vaccine, what then do you call it.
    Even if it’s not technically one.
    It looks like a vaccine, and acts like a vaccine.
    And is the only thing we have got.

    Doing nothing would be a disaster.
    As the new strains, would run rampant.
    If not already.

    The virus mutations may even beat the vaccine.
    Already showing it can.
    So updated vaccines, will be required.
    Potentially a dead end.
    The virus winning.

    Those that live, live.
    Those that die, die.

    History tells us.
    Sometimes, with plagues.
    They can be brutal.
    Indiscriminate.

    So solutions James.
    Or shall the well intentioned.
    Do nothing.
    Even then it would still be something.
    Left to the will of god, nature shall decide.
    It would, ultimately cease.
    It’s host lost, and survivors.
