Feminist Idol Worship

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 9:37 am Sat 20th November 2021

Jacinda Ardern is meant to be our, “Cover of the Rolling Stone” unstoppable Jacindamania phenomenon on the world stage.

But unfortunately the wheels have come off that wagon and New Zealand’s prime minister is fast becoming the biggest comedy show on the world stage.

Yes, Ardern and consequently us are becoming the international laughing stock and an “abundance of material” for media, comedians and politicians alike to ridicule us with consummate ease.

Most of it is unfortunately hilarious if you can laugh at yourself.

The typical, expected, response, though.

These cancel culture attacks on men have been so common in our recent history where any out of favour voice can be silenced by the public pile-on of feminist loudmouths.

They know, no other way. They haven’t had to because within New Zealand it has been allowed to happen on a regular basis.

In the bigger scheme of the world, attacking men on the international stage will, in this circumstance only make the audience laugh harder, when you see this from their side of the theatre.

For us in NZ, how silly does this look now when we have these infatuated followers of the Ardern fashion leaping to her defence?

We can’t not look outside the Goldfish Bowl and pretend this isn’t happening.

Wlll there come a point though, when we do have to take this seriously?


  1. I don’t underestimate her.
    Or see her, as a joke.
    Whatever she has got, she does it naturally.
    Her followers, infatuated.

    So attacking the individual, does not work.
    Even when she makes mistakes.
    It manifests, in comedy.
    With a feel good, tone.

    But she is human, and the mistakes, add up.
    A hard job, slowly taking its toll.
    Maybe she has twenty years in her.
    More, but even then, it ends.

    I don’t underestimate her.
    Because she is a very good politician.
    Those are rare things to find, even globally.
    Why else, do they make fun of her.

    Understanding her, is more important.

  2. If you mix with tourists at the very least or read overseas media but better still travel or work in bigger economies you come to realise how much we are legends on our own couches.

    We are lucky to be a country with a disproportionately high rate of talented athletes who succeed in their respective arenas.

    It’s easy to fall victim to the media myth that we succeed in a similar way on the political stage, and we don’t.

    Look at the schedule of our Foreign Minister on her first overseas expedition or the European tour the PM isn’t having and that tells you quite a different story.

    Globally the legend in her lunch time becomes comedy and just because we can’t see that through the picture painted by our media doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

    Our current generation when they do get to travel are in for a rude shock when they encounter reality out there in the real world.

  3. They are in for a rude shock, if they go to poor overpopulated nations.

    The media has a direct line to the leadership.

    It doesn’t say much really.
    An agreement to stop growth, in fossil fuel subsidies.
    A business as usual decision.
    Things like streamlined customs, is happening naturally.
    Politicians a step behind adoption.

    But it feels good.
    There are no mistakes, that are obvious.
    A politician may get big wins, and get some media.
    Or lots of little wins, and get lots of media.
    If the mistakes only make comedy.
    Is that also exposure, and media.

    “Work that New Zealand has ensured will include some of the issues of greatest importance to us – including environmental sustainability, inclusion of women and indigenous peoples, and digitalisation.”

    Us males, don’t need to be included.
    Apparently we are already included.
    But women are not.

    Examples may exist in the 3rd world, of clear bias against women.
    It must have been, a leader on the world stage comment.
    Not actually a plan for Aotearoa.

    What on Earth, is her plan for us, if she has one.
    The privileged males, must give something up.
    Is population information, to be digitised.
    Those not compliant to gender, and race, exposed.
    Every part of life searched for it.

    Are we not about to be excluded from something.

  4. A direct line to pre-print from parliament media is not the same as a direct line to a source as you are suggesting.

    APEC is an extension of former treaties and development conferences but I doubt any significant number of New Zealander expected to end up being destroyed by regional communism.

  5. She is the author, that’s as direct as you get.
    Assuming her staff didn’t write it for her.

    We are a long way from communism.
    Communism would not tolerate, dependency.

  6. If you really want to cause division in the feminist camp. Make transgenders voices heard.

    I really believe that men need to support transgenders and more feminine men. Nothing annoys women and feminism more than feminine guys. Its an absolute attack on their identity. This whole feminism construct is around an identity and a movement that is driven by moderates and exteme lesbian or anti male women. They really are out there to hurt you. Jacinda is pretty moderate but as we all know the extremists need to be put in their place and kept out of policy driven initiatives. I would really like to see men being more supportove to men and especially to transgendered men. Watch youtube videos on debates with feminists and transgenders they absolutely hate them. Its not easy for someone who is transgendered and they need our support. Feminists dispise TERF (transgendered exclusive rights feminists). We need a mens group that will bring in the middle ground and make New Zealand at least a more tolerant place to live. Where you can live your life in a way that is moderate and not too controversial.

    I really believe that this will be the start to a place where we can develop a better place for healthy masculinity and healthy feminity. The radicals can go live on the island of lesbos.
